MCHINJI-(MaraviPost)-Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema on Wednesday, December 7, 2022 expressed concern over the high number of road blocks along the trading routes between Zambia and Malawi.
Hichilema has sounded the concern during the commissioning ceremony of the Mchinji/Mwami one stop border post.
While acknowledging the need for security, the Zambian leader has pointed out that the multiple roadblocks are hurdles to efficient transportation of cargo.

One of social media commentators lauded Zambian President for being apolitical on the project.
“The most transparent President, Giving Details of the Project that it wasn’t one Man Project as detailed by Malawi’s Government trying to score on a project not manned by them.

“Let’s not politicise any development, and it’s waste of Money to Conduct a DEVELOPMENT PARTY RALLY on the same wasting Already depleted resource. People will trust you for being you not Pretending being you. LEARN TO SAY THE TRUTH AND CREDIT THOSE WORTH IT”.
