Notes on the Geography of Malawi: Lilongwe: Photo 3
The Managing Director of IMEX, the South African organization designing the new capital, wrote in the published plan that "...the people of Malawi... must surely see, as we do, in the establishment of their new capital city an expression of their nation's dynamic force and a symbol of their pursuit of progress." That was the verbiage in the letter of transmittal. In the preface director went on to say, "We believe that dignity, beauty, and all the other characteristics which the people of a country will demand of their Capital City, can be achieved with efficiency and economy" (W.J.C. Gerke and Charl J. Viljoen, Master Plan for the City of Lilongwe, 1968).
