Pacific pledges to help BCC develop Blantyre


One of the country’s investment firms, Pacific Limited, on Friday pledged to help the Blantyre City Council in giving the towns of Limbe and Blantyre a fresh look.

Pacific Industrial Manager, Ismail Aboo, was speaking in Blantyre when Blantyre City Mayor Noel Chalamanda officially opened a first state-of-the-art public water fountain at Midima roundabout in Limbe.

The fountain was built by one of Pacific Limited subsdiaries, Chambo Fisheries-to the tune of K16 million.


Aboo’s comment comes at a time when the BCC has rolled out the red star campaign which seeks to promote modern structures in Blantyre and Limbe.

As part of the campaign, BCC has given owners of condemned buildings in the two towns until early next year to demolish their buildings and develop new ones with a minimum of three storeys.

Aboo said, Pacific Limited, through its property development arm could be more than willing to partner BCC in erecting state of the art buildings which would redefine the outlook of the two towns.


In his remarks, Chalamanda said BCC appreciates the support it receives from the private sector in its campaign to keep Blantyre Clean and Green.

He observed that the duty of keeping Blantyre tidy is the responsibility of all citizens, including the private sector.

“I am happy today to see how Chambo Fisheries has developed this roundabout. This fountain will add an element of beauty to our city,” said Chalamanda
