GOVERNMENT has dissolved the Samuel Mukupa-led Road Development Agency (RDA) board following the expiry of its mandate.

Housing and Infrastructure Development Minister Ronald Chitotela said the mandate of the board expired in December last year and the agency had been placed under the supervision of the Permanent Secretary in his ministry Charles Mushota.

He was speaking in Ndola when he inspected various infrastructure projects.

“I want to take this opportunity to inform the public that the RDA board under the leadership of Samuel Mukupa as chairperson has been dissolved, RDA is now operating without a board and Mr Mushota has been tasked to supervise the Agency until a new board is appointed,” Mr Chitotela said.

He wished the outgoing members of the board well as they had worked hard to improve the road sector.

Mr Chitotela said the Agency undertook a number of road rehabilitation and constructions across the country that led to economic development.

He said a new board will be appointed in the next two months, and the Government was looking forward to instituting a new team that will take up the operations of the Agency in an effort to further develop the road sector in the country.

  1. Thnx very much for the update
    But make that board without dirty mind…
    It might lead to dirty work..


    • RDA is a very important institution that shouldn’t run without a board for too long. Why should it take a whole two months to usher in a new board? didn’t the minister know when the previous board’s term was ending?


  2. You RDA and your lungu are a disappointing to the people of Zambia…you announced the increment by 100%in your so called road tolls..surprisingly
    A semi-truck and trailer was paying K60per toll point,now it’s K150per toll instead of K120,
    Is this not broad daylight thieving..


  3. I thought RDA was controlled at state house…especially after the chairman died with millions under his bed!
