Vice President Inonge Wina says government is fully aware of the impact of the non-availability of roads in all parts of the country.

The Vice President says government realises that a bad road network has the potential to retard development and thus it remains committed to ensuring that roads in all parts of the country are worked on.

Mrs Wina was speaking in parliament today when responding to Sioma Member of Parliament, Mbololwa Sibulwa, during the Vice President Question and Answer session, who wanted to know the immediate plans that government has towards addressing the poor state of the roads in Western Province with specific reference to Sioma district and Sinjembela.

The Vice President said government is concerned with the bad state of the roads in Western Province and indicated that because of the bad terrain, there is need for massive resources, adding that government is making every effort to look into the matter.

She noted that the ongoing cashew nut programme in the area has also brought about the need to put up of feeder roads which will help with transportation of goods and services.

And the Vice President has indicated that she will carry out investigations to find out what has happened to the money that was allocated for the construction of a modern stadium in Mongu district in Western Province.

Mrs Wina said this in response to Mongu Central Member of Parliament, Mwilola Imakando, who wanted to get an update on the construction of a 20, 000 seater ultra-modern stadium in Mongu.

The Vice President noted that after the ground breaking ceremony by Late President Michael Sata, wrangles emerged between the contractor and government officials which led to the project not taking off.

She said her office will however look into the matter to find out exactly what had transpired.
