Speaking in an interview Makhwira said he started the shop after seeing that most Malawians shun doing business and left to foreign investors who cannot develop this country economically.
âMalawians should not afraid doing small and Medium Enterprises so that the country should developed like other countries,â he said.
World Auto Parts shop which was started in February 27, 2007 sells Motor Vehicle spares parts, Motor vehicle Tyres, Excide Batteries, Lubricants, Â Car Engines at affordable prices so that customers can afford to buy.
Before selling spare Parts he was buying and selling second hand Car from Dubai but after seeing that they was no much profits he ventured into spare parts business.

âI had also some challenges in selling cars like high taxes from MRA, inflation, Fuel scarcity Â just to mention but a few.
Commenting on Coronavirus Makhwira said it has heavily affected the business sector in the country as customers are feared to travel from villages to town to buy spare parts fearing to be affected by the pandemic.
