Western province minister Adons Mufalali is not happyÂ with ZESCO’s failure to complete the street lighting project in Mongu district.
Mr Mufalali says government paid the electricity company K313 million sometime ago
and wondered why the project has taken long to complete.
The provincial minister is demandingÂ an explanation from ZESCO management as to why
the project hasÂ stalled.
The minister also expressed displeasure at the works that ZESCO has so far done on the same project.
He told ZANIS in Mongu today that the power lines along the Mongu-Lusaka road were
too close to the road.
Mr. Mufalali said government’s plans to make part of the road into a dual carriage-way would be difficult to implement if ZESCO goes ahead to erect poles close to the road.
He hasÂ appealed to the electricity company to show professionalism in the execution of projects in the province.
