Nico holdings limited plc has unveiled its ambitious plans that will see it constructing a five star Hotel in the country’s capital Lilongwe within the next twelve months.

The managing director for the holding company Vizenge Kumwenda told journalists in Blantyre on the sidelines of the holdings extraordinary annual general meeting.

Kumwenda said the project will comprise a five star Hotel which will house 180 rooms, a conference Centre and shopping mall among others.

He said Nico holdings will invest a total of 80 million dollars for the project.

Kumwenda said Nico holdings has also gone into partnership with Elis property developers group limited of south Africa to develop various properties such as residential properties in the country.

“It’s an undeniable fact that tourism is booming in the country and we see a potential in investing in the sector. We have partnered with experts from Elis properties group limited to help us to develop the multi-million kwacha complex,” said Kumwenda.
