People in Neno calling themselves Neno Community Voice and Action, have petitioned the government over lack of information on the construction of a tarmac road in the district.
Information sourced by FaceofMalawi indicate that the petition will be presented to the District Commissioner come Monday next week and is expected to ask government to clear the mist on the road within 14 days.
Neno is the only district which has no tarmac road on the mainland, and the Neno Community Voice and Action is pressing for answers from government.
Spokesperson for the group, Steve Donda speaking to our reporter on Thursday said that they have mobilized themselves to exercise their constitutional rights.
He noted that the district was failing to develop due to the absence of a tarmac road.
“We want government to respond within 14 days as to when the road will be constructed failing which we will block the Mwanza road at Neno turnoff and the M1 road at Zalewa,” warned Donda.
