GOVERNMENT has terminated the contract of Angelique International Limited, the contractor engaged to build 247 health posts under the 650 health posts project.
Deputy Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya said the contractor was engaged to build health posts in Muchinga, Northern, Luapula and North-Western provinces.
Dr Chilufya was speaking when he toured Fiwale Health Centre in Mansa yesterday.
“As President Lungu said, the pace at which the contractors are working is not good. The contractor will clear all Zambian sub-contractors and workers who have been working with him,” he said.
He also said Government will ensure that in the next few weeks, another contractor comes on site to speed up the works.
According to Dr Chilufya, 350 slabs and 137 super-structures have been completed; 10 are ready for commissioning.
This is according to the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) news monitored in Lusaka last night.
