President Peter Mutharika says his government is committed to further developing the country if voted back into power in the May 21 Tripartite Elections.
Speaking in Lilongwe on Saturday at Chingondo Primary School ground in Traditional Authority (T/A) M’bwatalika, the President said he has fulfilled most development projects in his 2014 manifesto.
He said: “Among others, my government has constructed durable roads, hospitals, bridges and community technical colleges across the country.
“DPP is ready to bring more of these development projects in the next five years; which, among others, include cancer facilities, schools, electricity, tarmac roads and access to potable water.”
Mutharika added that he will continue to fight food insecurity across the country by maintaining the Fertiliser Input Subsidy Programme (Fisp).
“My enemy is poverty; that is why my government is focused on ensuring food security in the country. In this regard, I will continue to run Fisp whose beneficiaries are the poor,” he said.
From Chingondo, the President stopped at Ming’ongo Trading Centre in T/A Kalolo and Phirilanjuzi in T/A Masumphankhunda where he also promised that the party will continue promoting people’s livelihoods.
T/As M’bwatalika and Kalolo hailed Mutharika for bringing various development projects to their areas, saying people’s livelihoods have changed since he became President in 2014.
