President Lazarus Chakwera has said the Presidential Delivery Unit (PDU) which he launched in October 2021 has unlocked two important projects which have been stagnant for years.
Chakwera was speaking at Capital Hill today after meeting PDU authorities and ministers on his first office appearance at the office of President and Cabinet (OPC) since rising to power.
One of the projects, the Confederation of Business Women in Comesa involves the construction of 15 storey twin towers, a 5-star hotel, a business complex with a 520 vehicle capacity car park worth 108 million US Dollars.
The other project is the Nchalo Greenbelt which is estimated to benefit 20, 000 cotton farming households on a total land of 10, 000 Hectares.
Chakwera said the Nchalo project will start by next week while the Comesa project is expected to commence in June this year.
