GOVERNMENT is working round the clock to diversify the operations of Esco Limited after the completion of the Kazungula Bridge project scheduled for 2020

said this yesterday after a familiarisation tour of the ESCO Limited which operates the pontoons on the Kazungula border crossing point between Zambia and Botswana .

He said Esco employees are Government employees whose anxiety and expectations will be taken care of once the bridge is completed.

Hon. KAFWAYA said the diversification programme for Esco provides the continued survival of the organisation as the expertise of it’s employees will be rendered in other parts of the country where the pontoons will be deployed.

The Minister was very categorical about the continued existence of Esco Limited saying it has a vibrant future and will continue to provide service to the Zambians.

He said his ministry is very much aware of the coming to an end of the use for the pontoons at Kazungula but that they will be deployed elsewhere in the country where there is demand for them.

The Minister also took time to inspect the works on the Kazungula Bridge which is progressing very well.

He was taken on a conducted tour by Mr. Sung Hwang Choi Project Manager.

During his tour of Southern Province, Hon. KAFWAYA also took time to visit the Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport where he expressed happiness for the good standards exhibited by management in maintaining the infrastructure.

He also visited his former school Shunga Namutitima Primary where he encouraged pupils to take education serious so that they become useful to the development of the country.

This is contained in a statement issued to the media by Ministry of Works and Supply Public Relations Officer Ndubi Mvula.

    • Which govt.?UNIP, MMD or pf thieves or Botswana govt.? Don’t be fooled, this bridge has nothing to do with the pf thieves. The bridge was initiated by the UNIP govt. The MMD commenced it and the pf will only see it’s the completion. It is owned by Botswana and Zambia. Zimbabwe is just observers as they were too proud to be associated with the project. We in Botswana look forward to its completion and hope the process of being cleared at the body will reduce from 3 hrs to 30 minutes as at Botswana border.

  1. And a lot of money has been looted thru this bridge tour. This country is very rich, but the theft levels are overwhelming.

  2. Any comment on this massive engineering infrastructure from the bitter man HH? Muletasha guys, ECL is on a different level. You will try to turnish his name through hatred and jealous but the PF manifesto , the package and works are just too gooood to ignore. So when ECL gets 70% in 2021, dont start running to International organisations.

  4. Also looking forward to driving smoothly to and from Bots!
    Those stupid Pontoons have killed people and suck vehicle worth millions.
    Credit to the Japanese government resilience and foresight.
    Political will is good from Zim, Bots and Zambia.
    Good Job!
    Please upgrade Livingstone – Kazungula road to match bridge investment.
