He expressed his willingness to collaborate with individuals, even those who were previously critical of him, as long as they are ready to work towards the betterment of Malawians and the nation. His politics, he emphasized, respects institutions.

President Chakwera extended an invitation for people to join him and the Malawi Congress Party, urging those in MCP to welcome those interested in joining their ranks.

The President’s remarks followed his inspection of ongoing developments in the city of Lilongwe, where he visited several key projects. Notable among them was the groundbreaking ceremony for the enhancement of main roads in Lilongwe City, a project aimed at bolstering the city’s road network.

Since assuming office, President Chakwera has consistently championed the cause of robust infrastructure development, not only in Lilongwe City but across the entire nation.

Upon his arrival at Lilongwe Bridge for the groundbreaking ceremony, President Chakwera and the First Lady, Madam Monica Chakwera, were warmly welcomed by Vice President Dr. Saulos Chilima, party leaders, and senior government officials, including the city’s mayor.

President Chakwera’s itinerary also included visits to Chinsapo, Malawi Immigration and Citizenship Services New Lines, and Chinsapo UNICEF Ground, where he spoke about the need for all Malawians to work together to move the country forward.

“Pempho langa ndi loti tiyeni zoponyana miyala ndi kunyozana tizitaye. Tiyeni tizikamba zachitukuko,” said President Chakwera, emphasizing the importance of unity and positive discourse.

He commended the progress the country has made, stating that despite challenges, Malawi is on the right path, as evidenced by various ongoing developments.

President Chakwera also discouraged negative talk about the country, stating that it hinders both local and international support. He expressed gratitude to the people of Japan for their generous donation towards the M1 road and other areas, highlighting Japan’s silent but impactful support.

“The Japanese don’t make noise, they don’t court media attention, they don’t criticize this country but work silently as friends. I want you to know that I am so grateful for your support,” President Chakwera conveyed his appreciation for the assistance from Japan.

As the President continues his commitment to fostering development and unity, his call for cooperation and positivity resonates with a nation eager to see progress and growth.
