The Malawi government has said that Mzuzu Airport, where an Air Malawi Cessna 208 crashed into a minibus on takeoff Dec. 27 is wrongly and illegally positioned as it is at the heart of Mzuzu City and along a main road. Also, the airport has no fence and is not a restricted area. As a result, people, dogs and goats pass through the airport at will. The government intends to construct a new Mzuzu Airport in Ekwendeni within a period of nine to 12 months. (Nation Malawi)
