Malawiâ€™s Minister of Energy and Mining Dr Cassim Chilumpha has asked Malawians to stop politicking and instead concentrate on development.
Chilumpha was speaking at Nkhotakota LEA School where he presented a K4.5 million (about $15 000) cheque to the institutionâ€™s management committee.
The money, from the Local Development Fund (LDF), will be used to build a resource room for pupils with learning difficulties.
â€œIf we concentrate on politics, we will waste time because politics is dynamic and unpredictable.
â€œI urge traditional leaders, politicians and government officials to put aside personal interests to develop the country,â€ said Chilumpha.
The minister urged the committee to use the money for the intended purpose.
â€œDuring the 2012/13 parliamentary budget meeting, the House enacted the Disability Act which seeks to deal with discrimination and provide equal opportunity to people with disabilities.
â€œThis legislation is only meaningful if people with disabilities are given an opportunity to learn; hence, the resource room,â€ said Chilumpha.
The schoolâ€™s head teacher Bright Kambewa and Chief Malengachanzi expressed excitement that pupils with learning difficulties now have a learning facility.â€”Mana
