Rumphi District Council has constructed a market shed worthy 21 million kwacha at Hewe in the area of Senior Chief Katumbi in the district whereby the shed has water points and modern toilets.

The market has been constructed through Government to Enable Service Delivery (GESD) project with funding from World Bank.

Rumphi district commissioner Emmanuel Bulukutu said the facility is expected to improve the growing economy of the district.

Chairperson for Bwanyonga Market, Aggrey Yobe Mhango said the shed will help them by protecting them from rains.

On social media others are complaining about the amount of money the district has used to construct the shed, saying the 21 million kwacha is a huge amount of money.

Another said: “All that sum of money on that shelter? Shame!! And we expect our nation to develop? How?”

In March this year, the Rumphi district council also came under fire after spending K15.9 million on a small toilet.
