Association chairperson Dorothy Mulwila says it is saddening that despite President Hakainde Hichilema’s pronouncement on the matter to ensure that 30 percent of work is allocated to women, authorities have failed move so that the presidential directive could be actualized.

Ms. Mulwila said the failure by authority to implement the policies was discouraging women to fully participation in a male dominated sector.

She said women had the capacity to positively contribute to the growth of the construction industry if well supported by non-discriminative policies.

She has since appealed to government to put in place measures that would enable participation and allocation of incentives to women in the sector.

Ms. Mulwila said government should also engage women in the sector regularly in order to find out the challenges that women face in accessing the contracts.
