Nankhumwa said this when he visited the Council where among other activities he inspected the Masauko Chipembere Highway expansion under the Phase III of Japanese aided project.


“Let me say that Blantyre City Council is a shining example of well managed councils in Malawi under the leadership of the City Mayor Noel Chalamanda and the Acting Chief Executive Officer Dr [Alfred] Chanza,” said the Minister.


The Minister who was accompanied by the Secretary for Local Government and Rural Development Chris Kang’ombe and Director of Local Government Services Kiswell Dakamau, walked with the Mayor and other dignitaries from Yiannakis Roundabout to Illovo Roundabout where the Phase III project is ending.
