Mr Ng’andu says the institute will take action and hold accountable all those carrying out substandard works. He said those operating illegally in the profession are doing so at their own risk as the EIZ Act is wolverine to catch up with the perpetrators in the Engineering profession.
Meanwhile, Engineer Ng’andu says the institute is sending inspectors to Eastern Province to investigate construction of infrastructure works at David Kaunda stadium in Chipata, where the contractor is believed to have carried out shoddy works.
