Member of Parliament (MP) for Balaka Central East Constituency Yaumi Mpaweni has asked government to build a new court building to carter for the fast growing population in the district.
In an interview with YFM online, Mpaweni said the current court building is not conducive for delivery of justice.
“It’s now two years down the line when the current court which is situated at Balaka boma got gutted by fire and is in a dilapidated state,” he said.
Mpaweni said Balaka is among the districts with high population growth and high crime rate hence the need for a new court building.
He expressed hope that once the facility is built people in the district will be assisted in getting justice.
