Blantyre City Council moves to woo investors


Blantyre City Council (BCC) has called on investors to invest in the city.

The call was made by BCC Deputy Mayor Fanny Balaba Kanojelera during the opening of the first ever drive-through fast food facility, KFC, at Chichiri Shopping Mall in Blantyre.

According to Kanojelera, the construction of the facility at the mall means a lot to the face of the city.


He added that the council’s goal is to change the face of the city.

“This development means a lot to us but we are calling on other investors to come to our offices and discuss how they can do business in the city because we have places such as Chilomoni and Kamba markets which are good for business and we need huge investments,” he said.

Icon Properties Chief Executive Officer Ellen Nyasulu said the company believes in putting up structures that will speak to the needs of Malawian communities adding that they have invested approximately K550 million.


“We noted that the community in Blantyre requires convenience; that is why we thought of putting up this structure so that we respond to the change in terms of structures and change in providing solutions,” she said.

Afribrands Limited Principal Operator and Director Hamza Tayub said they have created 80 direct jobs with the opening of the facility and they have invested over K600 million in the facility.

He said that, apart from the direct jobs, the facility will help local suppliers economically because they will be able to supply goods and services.
