The Minister of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining, Bright Msaka, on Sunday launched the Malawi Rural Electrification Project (MAREP) phase 8, at a function which took place at Senior Chief Nthondo’s headquarters in Ntchisi District.

The launch started with switching on of a flood light at Kwezani School where a headmaster’s house was connected with electricity as first house to be connected in the area.

Msaka said electricity is a symbol of development in an area hence there was need for communities to utilize it profitably.

"In some centres I have visited, electricity is used for playing music all the time. We want people to engage themselves in developmental activities like information and technology," said Msaka.

The Minister said the MAREP 8 would see four centres in Traditional Authority Nthondo get connected with electricity.

A Malawi Congress Party, Member of Parliament for the area, Olipa Chimangeni, thanked government for considering the area for the electrification project.

She said Nthondo was the only constituency in the district that had no electricity since independence.

"Government should be applauded for bringing electricity here. People need to develop and electricity is one factor that would see people venture into different activities for their development."

Nthondo area has Cheka dairy cooperative with its own cooling centre which used solar for its power, but with electricity, the centre will be able to keep more milk before collection by buyers like dairy board from Lilongwe.

    Fact: 99 of all articles and internet site content on-line is regurgitated and rewritten material from some primary piece of literary or artistic work... So , isn't this true about web content copyright laws that as long as you reword or rewrite a piece of content from a site's copy online, then really not robbery or copyright infringement?.
