The government has terminated a contract awarded to Kawazani, a local contractor who was working on Mbala Milk Collection Centre.

The government has further disciplined the contractor by blacklisting him for five years. Fisheries and Livestock Minister Hon Professor Nkandu Luo says it is good that the contract has been terminated because the contractor was very stubborn.

Hon Pro Luo says the Government cannot continue holding to a contractor who is delaying the completion of the project.
This came to light when she inspected the project in Mbala this afternoon. Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries Chief Livestock Research Officer Mwambilwa Kabemba told the Hon Minister that drastic action has been taken against the erring contractor.

He says another contractor has since been identified to take over the remaining works of the projects.
He also says the Ministry will ensure that the money paid to the said contractor is recovered.

Mr Kabemba further disclosed that the Zambia Public Procurement Authority (ZPPA) has since blacklisted the contractor for a period of five years.

But the Hon Minister says such contractors who are derailing development must be blacklisted forever.
She says such contractors should never be seen working on Government-run projects again.
Hon Luo however says even when the punishment period expires, the contractor will never be awarded any contract under the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock.

“This contractor has been stubborn. Even when you call him he doesn’t pick up. I am very happy that the contract has been terminated so that this project can move,” she says.

Meanwhile, the Hon Minister directed that the Milk Collection Centre must be operational by June this year.

She says the remaining works, such as the sinking of the borehole and other things should be completed so that the centre can be up running.

The Hon Minister later inspected the newly constructed livestock market in Mbala.

  3. ;He says another contractor has since been identified to take over the remaining works of the projects.;

    So there will not be a tender process to get a new contractor?

    just like that-identifying another one?

  4. The owner of this small company is probably not connected to State House….its just too too late for this just look at the AG reports since 2011 and see how many companies are on this black list and how much monies have been recovered.

  5. Our UK based impostor says it is busy campaigning in the rural areas but the frustrated troll keeps popping everywhere because it has nothing to do in its flat in UK

  6. Tarino you left Zambia in the days of unip and still think rural areas have no internet in Zambia.this is why I tell people on LT not to take anything you say seriously. How can a f00l who has not visited Zambia in decades make himself an expert on events happening here in Zambia? Start working overtime cleaning toilets and save up for a ticket so that you come see the development here. Ignorant bab00n

  7. Psychological studies show trolls tend to be male, show higher levels of psychopathy traits — low levels of empathy, guilt and responsibility for their actions — and higher levels of sadism traits, the enjoyment of causing others physical and psychological pain.
    Trolls are also motivated by what psychologists call “atypical social rewards”. Generally, people are motivated by creating a positive social environment (typical, positive social rewards).

  9. AS FAR AS WE ALL CONCERNED THERE IS ONLY ONE BLIND BAB00N ON HERE
    AND THERE IS NO PRIZE FOR GUESSING WHO THAT IS

  10. Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as c0cky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding.
