Minister urges councils to assist government’s programs

Minister of Local Government, Unity and Culture Richard Chimwendo Banda has urged district councils to be at the forefront ensuring that people in the country are not multiple beneficiaries of government’s programmes.

Chimwendo Banda made the remarks Sunday at a rally at Nkhunga Police Ground in Senior Chief Kanyenda in Nkhotakota.

According to Banda, some beneficiaries of government programmes access support from various programs, including Affordable Inputs Programme (AIP), Climate Smart Enhanced Public Works Program (CSPWP) and Social Cash Transfer, while others are not benefitting from any.

Chimwendo Banda: It is worrisome that people are beneficiaries in multiple government programs

“Council officials should identify beneficiaries at the local level to assist people who can access such support in their districts as government is committed to making sure that all Malawians are well supported,” said Chimwendo Banda.

He, therefore, assured people in the district of government’s continued support such as construction of police houses at Nkhunga Police.

Meanwhile, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) aspiring candidate for Nkhotakota North Constituency, Dorothy Chikonje, asked government to put much effort in assisting people in the area in various projects like construction of secondary schools, among others.

Presidential Advisor on Education, Dr Ellias Chakwera, assured people in the area that what Chikonje highlighted would be delivered to the President.
