Government has expressed disappointment at the continued dishonest by some small local contractors engaged to construct various infrastructure projects across the country.
Minister of Housing and Infrastructure Development Ronald Chitotela is disappointed that some contractors have abandoned construction sites despite being paid all their dues in full.
Speaking to ZNBC news in Mwansabombwe shortly after he inspected construction works of a government administration block, a police post and houses for civil servants, Mr. Chitotela said it is disheartening to see abandoned works even after government
committed itself by settling the bills on time.
He has warned that he will not condone any form of dishonest by any of the contractors who have gotten their money in full but are failing to deliver the work.
The Minister has also expressed displeasure over failure to supervise the projects by his officers in the Ministry.
He has since summoned the contractors for a meeting at his office on Wednesday next week.
