  1. There is a similar danger at Kamatanda between Livingstone and Kazungula. RDA needs to move in quickly to avoid total collapse of this culvate.

  2. WHEN WAS this bridge constructed? Why is that RDA investigates its own poor handiwork, instead of an independent consultant? This scenario makes it clear that RDA is not transparent and must be cleared of all those misfits responsible for making our roads cost US$2 per kilometer when tarring! In Bots, one KM costs US$580,000 per KM!!

  3. MY QUESTION IS, WHERE IS ALL THESE WATERS DRAINING INTO? IS IT BEING LOST TO OTHER COUNTRIES JUST LIKE THAT? AS IF WE DON’T HAVE THE MINISTRY OF WATER FIMO FIMO?

  4. Its not the only bridge that has collapsed in Zambia….. Why does it become an issue to some people instead of asking govt to intervene. Some RDA officials are even staunchy upnd cadres and hail from north south western Zambia. We van carry out a head count.
