He said: “If all goes according to plan, the project will be completed by the 20th August this year.”

Baldwin Chiyamwaka, the Secretary for Information and Digitalisation, emphasized the significance of the National Data Center in Malawi’s digital transformation journey.

“The Data Centre has been designed to have sustainable power with fuel tanks, generators and solar panels for additional power,” said Chiyamwaka.
