Contractor China Jiangxi working on the Kitwe-Ndola dual carriageway.
sioners to find out why China JCHX , the contractor working on the Ndola kitwe dual carriageway, has taken long to complete the works.

Dr. Lusambo has observed that the contractor exceeded the two years time frame for the works and has since directed the two district commissioner’s to find out reasons for the delay.

He said that the contractor has failed government because it did not complete the works as agreed.

ZANIS reports that the minister said this during the Patrotic Front interactive forum held at Protea hotels in Ndola today.

Dr . Lusambo added that on his way to Kitwe, recently, he noticed that the contractor had blocked part of the road to re-do the road.

He said that government has tolarated the contractor for too long now adding that he seems to have taken advantage of the situation.

Dr. Lusambo noted that it is in this vain that he has directed the two district commissioner’s to find out the status call on the road from the contractor.

Road users have been complaining that the contractor keeps on blocking one part of the road to the other.

  1. …too much politics have been hindering work. At least now there’s no HH, GBM, Fred, etc

    • Those contractors are doing an amazing job as far as im concerned.

      These roads are meant for black African Zambians.
      It’s not like we are building roads meant for usage here in Africa.

      No story for me – I have a PhD.

      Thanks

    • Where is the USD 400 million that was released for Copperbelt roads? A year has passed without any tangible change to our roads. Can the Foreign Forensic Auditors move in please. We can’t trust anything PF now.

    • Has Lusambo ever built a house with ZAMBIAN labourers?
      They are at a funeral every day.
      Look at the foreign workers in Dubai. Never use local people for such projects. They are too lazy.

  2. Pay them! If you pay it will show. The Chinese contractors are hardworking people and its your government that is not honouring the payments. So Bwana mister, pay and it will show!

  3. Cancel the contract in 7 days since you specialise in cancelling projects; but how that highway has degenerated to this level is beyond me

    • At least that road is drivable. Why doesn’t Lusambo and PF talk about the Kitwe-Chingola dual carriageway that has been abandoned entirely?

  7. If this was a Zambian contractor Chitotela would have seen an opportunity to praise foreign contractors. We are very harsh to local contractors and never apply the same measure of strictness when dealing with foreign contractors.

  8. Lusambo this is what you should be supervising not Bushiri. Find out why the contractor is procrastinating and tell the nation.

  11. Google use of honorary doctorates. It wouls appear that Bowman Lusambo should be referred to as MR Bowman Lusambo not Doctor. Etiquette which a person wth anHon.Dr. would be aware of. Which University was it

    • He thinks there is a short cut to earning respect. A lot of people with PhDs are referred to as Mr . The Doctor is more reserved for the Medical Doctor.

      They should put in brackets PF PhD of PF University.
