Opposition Patriotic Front (PF) Mufulira Member of Parliament (MP) Marjory Mwape has expressed concern over the state of the Sabina-Mufulira road.
Ms. Mwape says it is disappointing that Sabina – Mufulira road which was constructed last year has completely been damaged making it difficult for motorist and traveling public to use it.
She told ZANIS in an interview in Lusaka today that the road was washed away during the last rainy season but has not been rehabilitated.
Ms. Mwape said it was strange that instead of admitting that the road was poorly done, the contractor was attributing the damage to heavy rains last season.
She noted that government was spending a lot of taxpayer’s money to engage contractors who are in turn doing shoddy works.
The MP said government would continue losing colossal sums of money to contractors on the same roads if it does not take action against such contractors.
She has since urged the Road Development Agency (RDA) to contract construction companies that can do a good job.
Ms. Mwape has since threatened to take legal action against the contractor on behalf of the people of Mufulira, if government does not take any action.
