  1. VERY GOOD MONGU-KALABO ROAD PROJECT. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FINISHING TOUCH. VERY BAD COLLEGE, SCHOOL AND TEACHERS HOUSES DESIGNS. THE SAME TRAIN-LIKE SCHOOL DESIGNS GO ON IN ZAMBIA. ARE OUR ARCHITECTS INNOVATIVE? CAN’T BUILDINGS IN ZAMBIA IMPROVE?

    • Those road are too narrow! Is it one way!

      All these good things are giving HH BP. Please only show him the negative side of Zambia, thats what he like to see. He will be very surprised in 2016.

    • @Peter,there is too much stealing in our country that people always create cheap basic buildings but qoute high prices. The legitimate architects that would like to implement modernity are always shoved aside in preference for the corrupt! These designs are too basic and outdated for this century! They should be a poor individual struggling to build a personal structure not a house build by government for a University Lecturer!!

    • What!! 171 Km for $180 million, thats about $1 million per kilometer and you people are praising??? What is wrong with you people. where on earth would that “sub-standard” road cost 1 million US dollars per 1 kilometer. Even in the US high quality roads don’t cost that much. Check the US highway website to see to see how much road constructions cost there. THIS IS DAY LIGHT ROBBERY and you guys can’t see that. WOW!!

    • @Ndobo, which engineers, you mean the Cleve Chirwas? Engineers to construct roads leading to no where, only for “This week in pictures”? I don’t see any village along those roads.
      The only development I see is in the blue tight dress, the bast minister. She just make me miss Ba Muka Yama Kaseba.

  6. Good to show some progress in infrastructure. We just hope the roads are as even as they look in pictures to guarantee smooth drives! On the Mongu- Kalabo Road there must measures to ensure that vehicles getting on are indeed road worthy and well fueled because a break down on a “suspended road” would mean completely chocking or closing the road from other users. No possibility for diversions!!

  7. Infrastructure is good but all should have been preceded by satisfactory agriculture, health and, education stability. Hunger, disease and, ignorance are still big challenges. A well fed nation will be more healthy and, have alert minds to learn and think outside the box. Heavy investment in the human resources will in turn make all these infrastructural developments a child’s play.

    For years now I have observed that road construction does not take into account mitigation of effects of erosion alongside roads. See pictures 5 and 20, loose soil is piled besides the roads and we know come rain it will all wash away. I wonder why expertise in landscaping and/or horticulture are not engaged to guide on soil retaining solutions for road embankments.

  8. Terrible house design. I agree. Why have two big verandas? The veranda on the right side could have been a bedroom. Sable road work is good. For a high way, we need need space where cars can stop. That is how highways are built. Serene township roads has bitumen when Solwezi township roads don’t have? Chipata Umodzi road in a mess while Muchinga has most of the Eurobond money being spent on. We need development spread all over the provinces. Nice to see the Catholic first institutional learning in NWP. Nice to see Kalabo Mongu road initiated by the MMD going on.

  9. The builders of the uni houses should be forced to turn that big veranda into a bedroom or a living room. We should not allow such a waste of space. This is the reason why cadres with no education are in government and give contracts to designers based on their cadre affiliation to the ruling party. Shame on the designers. Shame on GRZ.

  11. 1. Terrible building designs for both the University and associated staff housing. Zambian architects’ can surely do better. Did you know that a poorly designed 150sq m house costs more that properly designed 150sq m house. Remember the Vitruvian precept of “Firmness, commodity and DELIGHT” being the cornerstones of architecture. There appears no commidity or delight in all the buildings above. What a waste of resources.
    2. What is a “Foundress”?. Ba LT the word Founder is gender neutral

  13. Mongu-kalabo road project looking good. Connecting the country through a good road network is the best way to encourage local businesses to grow beyond their primary vicinity. Let’s hope mentainance will be performed when due not waiting until we have a half lane on one side.

    • Road works important for national development. Let me say infrastructure in general. As for maintenance, we were told that RDA were going to install TOLL GATES in selected points to raise funds for maintenance. I am sure these plans are still on. Except these issues were a matter of public knowledge as they were mooted under the MCS regime. The current one is less communicative on their activities and plans.

      Yes, the designs for the buildings can be better. I was in Luapula, Mansa recently, government offices are spread all over town. Is it not possible to put up single 4 storey buildings that can accommodate, health, agric, education, and others so that you free space for businesses to take up? Sad part, township road works have been abandoned in the Provincial capital! While in…

  14. @FuManchu, while I get your point as worthwhile, road infrastructure can precede health, agriculture and other good things the nation needs. Road infrastructure is a catalyst to development and most developed countries are aware of this and invest heavily in roads. I am totally in agreement with you, however, that Picture 5 and 20 are the reasons we have failed and continue to redo roads all over again and again. I had noted this too before I had even read your comments. What a shame! These engineers need to travel and learn from other countries such as the U.S. how you prevent erosion on the sides of the roads. These roads will be destroyed in one rainy season with such side-road constructions! What a shame to the engineers (if at all they are!) Unless the farrows in photo 20 is…

  16. The evidence of progress in infrastructure is welcome. I agree with the others who state that buildings need to be aesthetically pleasing. Go to Botswana you will see modern buildings. I’m not sure why people are insisting on building the same way as they did 40 years ago. Further, I’m not sure why it is the responsibility of the government to build teachers or lecturers’ houses. These are the things that lead to dependency. Pay the teachers and lecturers a housing allowance and let them buy, build or rent houses. Similarly there is not need for government to own so many cars when they can pay workers who qualify for the privilege car allowances. Think of the savings in maintenance of those houses and cars.

  17. Even in developed countries like the Uk and France, councils own houses which are rented by institutions for professionals who work in the areas they don’t intead to settle. We had similar in Zambia until we voted for a mediate with populous ideas who sold all the council houses, institutional houses and government therefore has no choice but to build houses for social service workers such as teachers and medical staff.
    The infrastructure development taking place under PF may not be perfect in design, but surely this is how it should have ben, consistently for us to move forward. If MMD built as many roads as RB built during his formular 1 of 2011 elections, we would be somewhere by now.
    Pf keep going and things will soon look brighter.
    Due to these projects which are demanding on…

    • “We had similar in Zambia until we voted for a mediate with populous ideas who sold all the council houses, institutional houses”.

      Did you mean to say;
      “We had similar in Zambia until we voted for a ‘midget’ with populous ideas who sold all the council houses, institutional houses”?.
      Mediate = arbitrate, facilitate, intercede, intervene ,reconcile, referee, umpire,
      Midget = a very small , short person or thing or of restricted growth (Fredrick Chiluba).

  19. These projects are short-lived coz they’re built using borrowed money. Now it’s payback time as the Well has dried up. No more Eurobonds, Chinese loans. 1 car/hour traffic does not justify the $180million road. Maintenance will require another 10million/year.

    A university in Chinsali when there are no industries in the whole province. The graduates will end up migrating to Lusaka. A fishery college in Luapula or a mining college in Solwezi would have been beneficial.

    If the Projects were financed from locally sourced funds, the story would have been a brilliant one.
