Minister of Water and Sanitation Abida Mia has hailed President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera for naming a road in Chikwawa after her husband.
In his State of the nation address Chakwera on Friday last week said his government is planning to rename Chapananga road to Sidik Mia Highway upon completion of the rehabilitation work.
Writing on her official facebook page said the family is very grateful with Chakwera’s gesture.
“On behalf of the entire Mia Family, I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation to the President for this touching gesture honouring the memory of my late husband. We will forever be grateful for this wonderful tribute,” said Abida Mia.
Sidik Mia died of COVID-19 two years ago.
