Directive from State House on the Mufulira-Mukambo road Welcomed

General News Directive from State House on the Mufulira-Mukambo road Welcomed

The timely intervention by state house to direct for expediting the completion of the Mufulira-Mukambo road has cheered the Zambia Association for Youth Contractors and Suppliers (ZAYCS).

Special Assistant to the President for Projects Implementation and Monitoring, Andrew Chellah has given Swift Cargo one month to complete works on the 15km Mufulira – Mukambo road.
Mr. Chellah has registered President Edgar Lungu’s deep concern with delays of works which started four years ago despite consistent release of funds by government.

ZAYCS President Thomas Kamawe says the directive is a true demonstration of the value that President Edgar Lungu attaches to infrastructure development across the country.
‘This is not even about politics as other people would want to allege, this is absolutely about the passion that government, under President Lungu attaches in promoting economic diversity through robust infrastructure development,Mr Kamawe observed.

He said in a statement availed to Smart Eagles that the commitment shown by the head of state house on the need to have the road done is encouraging and more so that local contractors have been engaged and encoporated in the country’s development programmes.

Mr Kamwawe has explained that under President Lungu, youths have been engaged and encoporated through the 20% local sub-contracting policy which he said is unprecedented.
He has therefore agreed to be a pioneer of infrastructure development by ensuring that all the parameters are well established for the sake of making sure that more youths are empowered and educated.

  2. This is really shameful to the PF and ECL and indeed Late Sata how this project which was stopped as it was claimed RB’s son was paid 2%
    of the contarct cost and the contractotr jailed or chased out of zambia then you stop the project which you gave to your cadres and have failed implementation for your PF’s ten years in power really sad.

  3. Now we need directives for the other 10,000 roads which are not finished or which need their potholes filled! How about the Chongwe-Kasisi Road: started by president Says more than 6 years ago but never completed after president Lungu stopped the works!

  4. A CLEAR REFLECTION OF PF’s INEPTITUDE AND CORRUPTION! How can a serious Govt fail to tar 15 Km of road in 4 Years?? How can a serious Govt fail to tar 65 Km Pedicle Road in 10 Years?? PEOPLE OF LUAPULA, WAKE UP, THIS PF HAS TAKEN YOU FOR GRANTED!! THIS IS ENOUGH REASON FOR CHASING THEM OUT AMD TRY OTHER PEOPLE WHO MAY BE SERIOUS!!

  5. Last minute silly directives from Lazy Lungu…how did a company called Swift Cargo even win this road contract…all this is what is always in the AG Reports over the last 10 years. Dig deeper into this company and you will find its just a briefcase company for a cadre or a minister.

  6. Only the last year of the governing term is devoted to working for the people and the country while the preceding years are spent on enriching those in the ruling party! Zambians must by now have matured to see through the “shinga butter” panic as the leadership awakens to the unfulfilled promises!

  7. This is how rampant and normalised corruption under one Lazy Lungu has even his office can not notice as they are rotten that this contract has corruption written allover it…I mean if I called Swift cargo and asked for a road engineer would there be one to take the call?

  8. The Bembas say “Basensela cilya kawa…” Now we are running the country on Executive Order. Mwenze kuni posse apa a mambala? Ati bwanji Saulos? Cybercrime ikaliko? Aaah — isOK mwe.

  9. This is a joke. 4 years 15 kms and yet payments were being made. Now that we are going to elections ati Lazy president Lungu humble man of no vision has given a directive.
    No press conference to address the nation on the state of affairs and Zambians want this type of leadership for next 5 years. Zambians wake up after elections these guys will go back to their normal habits stealing, shutting down all private independent news outlets,

  10. VERY INTERESTING, THIS COMPANY SWIFT CARGO IS NOT THE ONE WHICH IS INVOLVED IN MOTOR VEHICLE INVILVING WIFE TO KATUBA MP’S WIFE? WHILST THERE IS NEED TO EMPOWER OUR CITIZENS LET US ENSURE THAT THE QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP IS UP TO HIGH STANDARD TO AVOID WASTE OF RESOURCES BECAUSE CHEAP IS EXPE SIVE.
