Troubled Lake Malawi Transfer Project Continues To Struggle


Investigations have revealed that despite signing $400 million (about K300 billion) Salima- Lilongwe Waterway Project with Khato Civils, government is now no longer interested in the venture that could have taken water from Lake Malawi into homes in Lilongwe City and surrounding districts. This lack of interest has resulted in a mess as evidenced by frustrations raised by the contractor who, upon seeing the delay and lack of action on the part government, is now seeking compensation at a cost of $71.2 million (approximately K57 billion at current exchange rate).
