Member of Parliament for Nsanje Lalanje, Gladys Ganda, has lamented the slow pace at which development is progressing in her constituency.
According to Ganda, despite that over three years have passed since she requested for electricity connection in most areas in her constituency, authorities are yet to implement the project.
She said: “The concerns of people of Nsanje Lalanje are too fold, the main one being that we asked for electricity some three to four years ago and nothing has been done except only in one area.
“Besides that, the electricity poles were already sent to Nsanje Lalanje and they are still there.”
Ganda also wondered why some electricity poles were taken away from Nsanje Lalanje to Chikwawa South describing the move as unfair because the project in her area is yet to be implemented.
But responding to the query, Minister of Homeland Security, Richard Chimwendo Banda, directed Ganda’s question to the ministry of energy, however he asked the lawmaker to put it in writing.
Ganda has since expressed satisfaction with the response she got saying she is hopeful that her area will receive the development.
According Ganda, areas to benefit include Lalanje, Mwachedwa, Tiza, Namikuta, Dande and Tizora.
