Among others Mailosi has promised to support agriculture diversification and enhancing security in the area. He went on to say that security is very paramount when talking about developments in an area.
“Issues of irrigation, provision of farm imputs will looked into, whereby in the process people will be dealing with food insecurity issues at the same time they will be getting money. Interms of security, issues of child trafficking, abduction and killing of people with albinism will be put to an end.”
Mailosi added that if voted into power he will continue supporting infrastructure developments which includes roads, bridges, schools and health facilities.
According to Mailosi people in Phalombe East do face challenges during the rainy season because of poor roads. One of the key issues which will be looked into this time around is roads infrastructure.
“Government has already given us the project of road construction works of Chiringa to Muloza. All these will be looked into very seriously in this second term if am actually voted into power.”
