Education Minister Suspends construction works for a School in Mwense

Rural News Education Minister Suspends construction works for a School in Mwense

General Education Minister, Dennis Wanchinga has suspended construction works at Loto Secondary School in Mwense, Luapula province, due to poor materials being used.

The works are under the World Bank-funded Zambia Education Enhancement Project, ZEEP.

Speaking during a visit to the construction site, Dr. Wanchinga discovered that poor quality blocks are being used at Loto Secondary School, prompting him to suspend the works.

He said works will only resume once the supplier of the respective blocks replaces the poor-quality materials.

The minister further urged those in charge of the procurement of building materials to ensure quality.

And addressing the construction workers who disclosed the issues to him during his inspection of the works, Dr. Wanchinga said it is important that good quality materials are used so that structures can stand the test of time.

  1. There is a contract to be followed. The Minister can not unilaterally suspend works with the his ministry expert recommending….. I dont think the minister’ name appears on the contract as a signatory to warrant him to suspend…. Contracts have terms which both parties must adhere in event of the dispute…..

  2. Very sad for the country to have a ka stubborn guy like Antonio Mwanza just arguing without reason and objectivity on Diamond TV. Very sad indeed, I am PF but a realist

  3. That is why you need a contract and a warranty .I remember as a kid an Italian company cogefa built a dual carriage way from Ndola to Kitwe which still stands up to now .The roads under this government are a substandard mess because some people are benefiting from inflated prices .

  4. This is what Nawakwi should have done with HH as the government contracted consultant during the sale of Mosi oa Tunya, not sleeping and coming back decades later “nokwisa nya amafi chinyanyenye” all over!
