CHAKWERA FLIES TO TZ – Why going there?

0

As the series of visits to neighboring countries continue, the Malawi leader has left the country for a two day working visit to Magufuli’s County.

Goes off to Tanzania

While going to this fast economically growing country is not being welcomed by critics of Chakwera government who describe this as global trotting, a large percentage of Malawians has described his journeys as profitable with today’s tour to Tanzania being described as exceptional one as they say it’s a blessing in disguise.

Making his speech on his departure to Tanzania at Kamuzu International Airport, Chakwera said his visit to Magufuliland is of great importance taking into consideration the benefits Malawi government get from Tanzania.

It is very imperative to visit Tanzania owing to the long time relationship that dates back in colonial time and this visit will surely help this nation as Malawi depends much on Tanzania in as far as importation of goods is concerned.

Speaking to Afriem on Tuesday, Malawi foreign Affairs Minister Eisenhower Mkaka hinted that this Tanzania tour is exceptional one citing that this tour will see the president visiting the long time abandoned Malawi Cargo Centre (MCC) which had been in operation only few years after its launch by the late Malawi leader His Excellency Ngwazi Hastings Kamuzu Banda in 1991.

The MCC was then abandoned for no apparent reasons though the objectives of its establishment remains significant up to date.

Ready to be revitalized

Mkaka highlighted that once this deserted MCC is revitalized which was designed to export fuel among other core duties, if properly used, Malawi would substantially reduce the cost of exporting fuel which would translate into a reduction of fuel prices in Malawi.

MCC may reduce fuel prices once revitalized

Mkaka further indicated that MCC is comprised of the facilities in Dar Es Salaam and the facilities in Mbeya, both of which belong to the Government of Malawi and is founded on the basis that it has to be used in receiving and facilitating all the necessary processes at the post for all Malawi Cargo including both liquid cargo, such as Fuel, and solid cargo, such as vehicles.

The Malawi Cargo Centre, once revitalized, will see Malawi handling all Malawi exports and imports, notwithstanding, the MCC will also be handling cargo for other countries, including Zambia and Tanzania itself, although priority is given to Malawi Cargo.
