President Peter Mutharika has been accused of lying to the nation by claiming that government has started construction work for Mombera University in Mzimba.
In his State of the Nation Address delivered in Parliament, President Mutharika revealed construction of the University is in progress and hailed the project as instrumental in boosting livestock production for local consumption and export once completed.
However, speaking in Parliament, Mzimba-Solola Legislator Jacob Hara dismissed government’s stance on the matter.
According to Hara no foundation has been laid for the University.
In response, Minister of Transport and Public Works Jappie Mhango told the House that the President gave right information as construction of Mombera University has started with a tarmac road leading to the earmarked institution.
