Government has awarded a K119 million tender to two contractors to rehabilitate a total of 200 Kilometers of feeder roads in Kapiri Mposhi district.
The feeder roads to be rehabilitated include those leading to all the three chiefdom palaces namely Chipepo, Nkole and Mukonchi in the district.
Kapiri Mposhi Town Council Public Relations Officer, Chris Mulaliki has disclosed the development to ZANIS today.
Mr Mulaliki said the scope of the road works comprise full gravelling, repair and installation of new culverts and bridges on the targeted roads.
” The feeder road rehabilitation is going to be financed by the central government. This involves working on the feeder roads which have been in deplorable state for quite a while,” Mr Mulaliki said.
Mr Mulaliki noted that the rehabilitation of feeder roads in the rural parts of the district, will ease movement of farming inputs and create better market opportunities for agricultural produce in the area.
” The development of feeder roads is key in driving the government’s economic diversification agenda through the agriculture sector and we want to commend government for considering the district with this project because as a district, we rely so much on agriculture,” Mr Mulaliki said.
He urged the beneficiary communities to guard the roads against vandals once worked on.
Teviem Enterprises LTD and Luvias LTD have been contracted to undertake the road rehabilitation project.

Even from the names you can tell that these are merely proxy companies with no track record….years gone by they would tell you the length of the roads but now under these thieves everything is vague.
What are the terms of the contract what is rehabilitation? are they merely just patching up the road with sand?
Where is RDA in all this ….this is all money that is being splashed around and is not budgeted for!!!

LUVIAS CONSTRUCTION OWNER, CLOSE ASSOCIATE OF PRESIDENT LUNGU
The owner of Luvias investment a Mr Tembo is a close associate to President Edgar Lungu. Luvias employees have unearthed a scandal in which the company is demanding that workers hand in their voters’ cards for unknown reasons. The workers have since called for Police and ECZ to institute investigations in the scam. The workers claim that the first 2 letters of the company represent a senior government official’s name.
When such tenders are awarded records should be on display at the Roads Development Agency (RDA) offices for interested members of the public to peruse through. Normally details on company profile would be contained therein!
Almost every town has a good number of bad roads
And so let the corruption continue
Four months before the election, and suddenly all sorts of roads receive some attention. Does the government really think that Zambians are that stupid?
I TOLD YOU DESPITE PFF SAYING THEY HAD MASSISE SUPPORT IN KAPIRI WHICH WAS LIE
THEY THINK THIS WILL CHANGE THINGS ……. NEVER EVER
READ ABOVE THE CORRUPTION GOING ON AS USUAL
IT WILL NEVER END UNTIL THEY ARE BOOTED OUT
Teviem Enterprises LTD is appearing on govt records as a Chinese owned Zambian registered company even making these contracts even more suspicious given that funds are coming from central govt that are not in the budget….these are all money that Mvunga is pumping into the system further damaging the Kwacha.
