The Katowa-Mafinga power project which is meant to get electricity from Malawi in Katowa to Mafinga district in Muchinga province is progressing well.

The project which was started in 2016 has reached 85 percent completion and already has a 33 kw substation installed at Thendele.

The completion of this project will see more industries and other developments come to the area and the local people are happy with government’s efforts in taking development to all parts of the country.
