 Malawi’s highest court,  the Supreme Court of Appeal on Friday cleared the path for Khato Civils to go ahead full throttle with its P6 billion  Lake Malawi water project which had been going at a snail’s pace due to a High Court battle launched by the Law Society of Malawi that challenged the execution of the project on account of  the lack of Environmental impact assessment.
