Cabinet Office Permanent Secretary for Special Duties Bert Mushala (l) confers with Road Development Agency (RDA) Western Province Regional Manager Gershom Mwagomba (r) when inspecting the construction progress of Mongu-Kalabo Road Project during the tour in Western Province to compile major developmental projects,

THE construction of the $286.9 million Mongu-Kalabo road whose works were scheduled to be completed in April 2016 has had its completion date brought forward to December 31 next year.

RDA chief executive officer Bernard Chiwala said here yesterday when he paid a courtesy call on Western Province permanent secretary Augustine Seyuba that the works which started in 2011 will finish four months ahead of schedule .

Mr Chiwala commended Avic Constructions International the contractor working on the road for working ahead of schedule.

“The Mongu-Kalabo road which is our second largest project is an engineering marvel and it has stretched our minds in order to find a technically sound solution so that it can stand the test of time,”Mr Chiwala said.

He said the road which has 26 bridges has had 69 percent of the works done.

“78 percent works on the bridges ?have been done while 60 percent of the road works have been done, “ he said.

Mr Chiwala said it has not been easy working on the road due to non-availability of materials as most of them have to be imported from either Lusaka or South Africa.

“we are also grateful to Government for always making resources available,” Mr Chiwala said.

And Mr Seyuba said his office is committed to ensuring that development in the province continues despite the political mood surrounding the country.

He said the province has never seen such major development in a long time.

Mr Seyuba said the Mongu-Kalabo road will open up trade links between Mongu and Angola.

“We are very happy with the road works in the province and they are so perfect,” Mr Seyuba said.

He also commented the contractor for the good job on the 34-kilometre stretch.

Mr Chiwala and his entourage later toured the Mongu-Kalabo road.

  1. Its not an engineering MARVEL BERNARD, this is normal engineering challenges unless u can’t calculate stressess and starins induced due to loading as well as environemntal aspects. I hope the lozi vote will go to PF for the job well done

    • Praise be to RB and Musokotwane. The PF found this road been constructed. Yamfwa Mukanga even suspended the construction in October 2011 one week after been appointed Transport Minister. Lucky enough the funding for the project was ring fenced and there was no stopping it. His young brother Chola Mukanga wrote disparaging articles about the project on his Zambian Economist website when it was announced by RB. The Post also joined in . At issue was the $275m of the project that PF and its supporters found wasteful. In Western Province there’s a joke going around that Situmbeko Musokotwane finally managed, were others had failed, to build a road to his home village!

    • Too little too late. PF, quick at the mouth, promised the sky and delivered nothing to the people of Western Province. Where is the 1964 Barotseland Agreement that only fizzled-out after an exhaustive Rogers Chongwe Commission Report? Where is the stadium in Mongu, Where is the University that was promised? The list of promises is long and yet this PF government is already calling it a day. What a disgrace!

  2. Way to go! PF all the way. By the way the rally HH had was big but do you know the reason? People were ferried from Ndola, Muf, Chingola, Kalulushi and Luanshya. UPND doesn’t stand a chance. The reason I will vote for PF: 650 health posts, Chingola-Kitwe dual carriageway, Link8000, L400, Pave2000, Chalimbana, Robert Makasa universities, Bumper harvest, more than 10000 bed spaces to be built at UNZA and CBU, Compound tarring of roads, UTH revamping, Airport construction, High perks for civil servants, Chiawa bridge, General construction in the country, Chirindu roads, drainage construction across the country etc + many many more projects under the King Cobra now to be carried on by EL. You need a dozer as large as a the size of Zambia to remove PF from power.

  5. I bleed to see substandard myopic comments full of illusion. I will vote for a leader who can articulate his vision, rather than one who wants to ride on a legacy he can not even explain. Wake up from your slumber and do what is in the best interest of this nation and the generation to come. Live your life, and stop be irrational, throwing your emotional refuse everywhere.

  7. @Jamakundi wabipa ngeshina lyobe.Wake up and see were Zambian’s will vote for.Do you think Sata’s legacy will just vanish just like that.Let me tell you something about HH’s followers.The only difference between 2011 and 2015 is that HH supporters have come out in the open and its the usual power hungry tribe of Tonga’s.Look around you if you have new one’s apart from the power hungry team of MMD MP’s who want to rip were they didn’t sow, Milupi who has failed to even convince his relatives that he is a politician and the widow who has run out of food and a husband.Apart from these no one else

  8. FOR SURE PF WAS AND STILL IS A WORKING GOVERNMENT. IF PEOPLE THINK DURING PUTTING UP SUCH HOSPITAL AND OTHER INFRASTRUCTURE THEY CAN EVEN PARTY, THEY ARE SIMPLY NOT SERIOUS. ALL GOVERNMENTS PROMISED AND ITS ONLY PF THAT HAS PERFORMED WITHIN 2 YEARS WHAT ALL GOVERNMENTS (UNIP, MMD) TRIED TO PERFORM FOR 27 YEARS AND 20 YEARS RESPECTIVELY. GUYS IF YOU WANT TO TRY SOMETHING YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN BUT JUST BEING PROMISED WHEN YOU YOU CAN SEE PF DELIVERING, IT WILL BE YOURSELVES TO BLAME. IT’S EASY TO PROMISE BUT ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO DELIVER YOUR PROMISES. PF HAS REALLY DONE IT AND WE CAN SEE.

  9. Who thought there was a leader in PF apart from HEMCS? But from nowhere by the grace of God ECL appears on the scene not from Muchinga but the East to show people that tribe is not leadership, to come and continue just like Joshua when Moses died.
    Now agony is praying for the death of someone you think akucinga pafula only to be met by somebody stronger. kikikikiki!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Owe God does not give vision-less leaders, who appear dull, listen to HH and listen to EL and Youcan tell EL is clueless. He has all the bad attributes of a leader not calm as you saw fired Scott next day he’s reconciling, He has no vision of his own, he is selfish, hanging to 3 positions while at the same time trying to be president. He is not articulate, he is good at saying the wrong stuff, he is not decisive, bishops, ministers and criminals deciding on his behalf.
