Tanzania and Malawi have decided to implement a 180-MW joint electricity project, splitting the power produced on a 50/50 basis. The agreement was signed in Mbeya by Gerson Lwenge and George Chaponda, respectively the Tanzanian and Malawian ministers of water and irrigation, at a ministerial meeting.

The project is expected to cost the two countries just over $500 million. It will benefit, in total, seven districts – five in Tanzania and two in Malawi.
