Chinese firm wins accolades over concrete road

By JOHN KOMBE
A civic leader has paid glowing tribute to Zhong Yang Eco-Agriculture Industry Park for constructing a $240,000 concrete road in Chongwe.
The investor constructed the 1.9 kilometre stretch as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Chongwe central ward councillor, Juvenalis Mulimbika said that the concrete base road had improved the stretch that connects part of Chalimbana ward and Chongwe central.
He said that the road which was being constructed along Matipula primary and secondary would greatly benefit the learners who would have easy passage to and from school.
Meanwhile, Zong Yang Administrative manager, Fredrick Sashi told the Daily Nation that, the company would also construct a boundary wall around the school so as to ensure the safety and security.
He stressed that the company decided to upgrade the road in order to help improve the mobility of vehicles and pedestrians in the farming community.
Mr Sashi said that the company embarked on the project as a gift to the community where it operates from and where most of its workforce resides.
He assured the local government and traditional leadership that the company would continue to support community projects.
