The Japanese Government has provided Malawi with a grant amounting to ¥5.77 billion (over K20 billion) to expand Tedzani Electricity Hydropower station.

This was revealed during an exchange note ceremony between the State Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan, Mr. Minoru Kiuchi and Malawi’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Dr. George Chaponda in Tokyo Japan.

According to a press statement dated 18th March from Japanese Embassy in Malawi, the project will facilitate the addition of a 21.8 megawatt hydropower station at Tedzani.

“Currently, Malawi is faced with frequent power outages due to the shortage of power supply and this has negative implications on the lives of ordinary people as well as on industrial activities.

“By promoting the sustainable supply of electricity, the project is expected to strengthen the foundation for Malawi”s economic growth,” reads the statement in part.

This is the largest grant so far which the Government of Japan has given to the Government of Malawi as far as the history of bilateral relations between the two governments is concerned.

The signing ceremony was held in Tokyo, Japan where Dr. Chaponda is currently on a visit at the invitation of H.E. Mr. Kishida, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan.mana
