Government says it has paid in full the contractor working on the construction of the phase one of the district hospital in Kawambwa district of Luapula province.

Luapula province minister, Nickson Chilangwa has disclosed the development during a combined meeting for heads of government departments and councilors in the council chamber yesterday.

Mr. Chilangwa who was accompanied by the Provincial Deputy Permanent Secretary, Joyce Nsamba also said government has paid the contractor constructing the new town market.

The provincial minister said government expects to see the works at the two projects to resume and expedite completion.

He has urged the contractor to finish the hospital within the first half of this year so that it can be opened in the third quarter and start the next phase.

And Mr. Chilangwa said government will soon be meeting all the contractors who have been awarded contracts in Luapula province because some were paid last year but are reportedly not moved on site.

  2. Something doesn’t sound good here. What’s so special about this contractor that other contractors don’t have to be paid in full. Is he a local contractor or Avic and which committee gave a go ahead and instructed by who? Come on Zambians let’s fight this trend of contracts being given without following the right channel.

  3. Caution ! Watch out that quality control is not compromised here. Payment I believe should be done upon satisfactory work is done is done. To say the least, that doesn’t sound transparent.
