Minister of Information, Communication, Technology and Civic Education, Patricia Kaliati says people advocating for the federal system of government are bent on disrupting the peace, unity and tranquility prevailing in the country.
She made the remarks on Tuesday when she held a rally at Chitipa Boma, ahead of President Peter Mutharika’s development rally slated for Wednesday.
There have been calls from some quarters in the North for the adoption of a federal system of government, claiming it would be the surest way for the region to have equal share of the national cake.
But Kaliati rubbished such calls describing them as baseless, especially now when the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)-led government is displaying determination to spread development across the country, including the North.
To drive the point home, the minister catalogued a number of development projects to be implemented in the region such as Mombela University in Mzimba, a teachers training college in Rumphi, rehabilitation of Karonga-Songwe Road, construction of Njakwa-Livingstonia–Chitimba Road, Mzuzu-Nkhata Bay Road, and Jenda- Edingeni, Rumphi- Chitipa Road, among many others.
