Minister of Youth and Sports Ulemu Msungama has expressed satisfaction with the construction of Mbandira Technical College in Nkhotakota.
Speaking on Friday when he inspected the site to appreciate the project’s progress, he said he was excited with its quality.
“There are four sites where such projects are underway in Karonga, Nkhotakota, Neno and Phalombe. All projects are going on well,” said Msungama.
The minister expressed optimism that the projects will be completed by December, observing that those in Neno and Phalombe were at 95 percent while the projects at Mbandira and in Karonga were at 89 percent.
However, Msungama said his ministry was interested in the skills the students would acquire from the colleges.
Nkhotokota district commissioner Ben Tohno said once completed, the college will train many youths in various skills that will help to create employment opportunities.
“Our children will acquire various technical skills, open up businesses and employ other people,” he said.
Malawi government has invested over K2 billion for the construction of Mbandira, Ngala in Karonga, Naminjiwa in Phalombe and Neno technical colleges.
