Wasn’t Mangochi a better candidate for city?
For the past few years, there has been a lot of talk from the government about turning Nsanje into a city with its own airport, port, banks and other modern amenities. We have seen a scramble for land and construction of a port (of some sort) but for the past year, the project has hit a wall for reasons I need not explain.
Wouldn’t the effort that went into Nsanje have worked wonders by now had it been done in Mangochi? What Mangochi lacks is a modern airport capable of handling fairly large aircraft. Everything else is pretty much there – the lake, hotels, banks and the enthusiasm to make tourism work!
Just a thought…
