Our Investigative reporter has come up with revelations of stalled development projects in the northern region of Malawi.
Not even one finished,since 2016-19.
These are the projects which the govt is doing in the north. It is sad that days of completion are close but on very little percentage is done.. The money I doubt if it’s available.
The sad part is that.
On tax collected per region, they said “North is giving about 3%, but the truth is tax cheques are given to the MRA from head offices in LL or BT but the companies are operating business in the north.(I hope u understand me there)”. example coal is carried from the north by Gaffar and other transporters. These guys pay tax in Blantyre. Raiply the guys pay tax in BT or LL.. We have Farmers world, Rab Processors and many more..
And the north remains a dead region.
According to this list of stalled projects its only Mzuzu-Nkhatabay road which has been accomplished.
No wonder,we are witnessing so many protests against the govt as far as public delivery services are concerned.
It is saddening to note the north has a lot of Mining Companies walking away with vast minerals but the region still remains under developed and the people live under $2 a day.
The state of the north is disheartening.
Something must be done urgently.
