Solwezi residents have called on the PF government to be truthful on the construction of the Solwezi-Chingola road as they have suffered long enough.
The residents who spoke through their headman said they have lost confidence in the promises from government because they have been fed with the same rhetoric for a whole term but that no progress has been seen on the road.
Headman Kofwakofwa of Kimena Village which is along the same road was at loss of words to explain the difficulties that people in the area have been going through when bringing in goods and services to his area.
He said the road connects the province to the rest of the country but has been neglected further wondering if the people in the province are second class citizens who don’t deserve a better roads.
He said the road is a major contributor to the country’s economy as it the road which is used to transport all the copper as well as other commodities coming from North Western Province. Intact 50 percent of Zambias copper has to go through that road.
God will surely punish these guys for making his people suffer so helplessly,he said
