Speaking earlier, Traditional Authority Kambwiri commended ADRA Malawi for transforming lives in his area. He however bemoaned the increased number of non -governmental organizations that existed only on paper. He said that out of 21 registered organizations, only 10 were helping people in his area including ADRA Malawi.
Commenting on the matter, the DC said his office would soon embark on the screening exercise to assess the impact of organizations in the district.
Speaking during the function, Tsogolo Labwino Project Manager Francis Zande thanked the DC for his visit. He also  thanked the community members for supporting project activities and called on chiefs to continue advocating for development activities in their villages.
