Milupi calls for probe into Ndola-Sakania-Mufulira road contract
Öas he says that despite Government spending over K300 million not a single kilometer of the road was tarred.
LAW enforcement agencies should expedite investigation into the Ndola-Sakania-Mufulira Road contract to establish how the K300 million paid towards the project was used, Minister of Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development, Charles Milupi has said.
Mr Milupi, who was on the Copperbelt, Luapula, and Northern Provinces to inspect roads projects, said Government had disbursed huge sums of money towards the project and Zambians had the right to know how the public funds were utilized.
“I call upon the security wings to quicken the pace of the investigation so that we can know to whom the money was paid to and for what reason,” Mr Milupi said.
He said the new dawn government is in a hurry to repair the roads and that this could only be achieved through prudent use of public resources. Meanwhile, Mr Milupi says Copperbelt rural had been neglected in terms of road infrastructure development.
The Minister, however, assured that the new dawn government would mobilize resources and resume all stalled road projects.
Mr Milupi who also inspected the Tuta Road in Luapula, observed some design defects on the section passing through the Bangweulu plains, 20 kilometres towards Mukuku Bridge, and 30 kilometres after the Tuta Bridge.
