Luapula province Permanent Secretary Jazzman Chikwakwa
has threatened to prosecute contractors abandoning government works.
Mr Chikwakwa said that government spent huge sums of taxpayers money to pay contractors who should do a good job for the nation to move forward in terms of development.
He warned that government would ensure that contractors who abandon works on projects awarded to them would face the wrath of the law.
Mr. Chikwakwa said this after inspecting Kanyembo clinic and Kanyembo basic school as part of his familiarization tour of Luapula province.
He said that it was a bad culture for contractors to abandon the projects without considering the beneficiaries who are the people at grass root level and tax payers.
He warned some named contractors in Lusaka would be black listed and that they would not be awarded contracts.
