Blantyre City Council (BCC) has assured business people of improved security.
BCC Deputy Mayor Fanny Balaba Kanojelera said security is a priority area.
He was speaking during the opening of Mango Talaat and Roast and Broast, a fruit juice shop, situated along Victoria Avenue in the city.
“We are already in the process of having city police which will be specifically handling issues to do with Blantyre City and improve security. Therefore, I want to assure and woo investors to come and invest in Blantyre,” he said.
At the fruit juice shop, customers will be having juice extracted from locally sourced fruits on the spot.
Managing Director Oways Attia Al Mansory said the coming in of the brands will also empower local fruit suppliers.
“We have set up good equipment that keeps the fruits for the whole year; therefore, we will not run out of supply,” he said.
The company has invested approximately K140 million in the business.
