LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Malawian boy that harnessed the wind mill William Kamkwamba plans to have magnificent innovation centre slated for next year in the central district of Kasungu.

Kamkwamba told the news conference on Thursday after making a key note address to this year’s Second Agriculture Transformation Initiative (ATI) Summit in the capital Lilongwe that the proposed centre aims at grooming young people’s innovations.

In his remarks, Malawi Agriculture Minister Kondwani Nankhumwa lauded Kamkwamba for the project that nurtures youths’ untapped innovations.

“Our agriculture cannot transform if we fail to embrace state of the art science and innovative technologies. In that regard we feel honored that William Kamkwamba, the boy who harnessed the wind, has joined us today as the keynote speaker, and an honored guest.

“William’s creation of a windmill from spare parts and scrap in Kasungu, guided only by a library book, tells the story of the innovative power hiding in the bright children and students in our country. We hope that our youth will be encouraged to engage their creative minds to help create scientific solutions to challenges in the agriculture sector,” says Nankhumwa.

Under the theme, “The Role of Inclusive Science, Technology, and Innovation in Driving Agricultural Transformation;” the summit’s participants exchanged ideas to help smallholder tobacco farmers’ transition to alternative livelihoods.
