Zambian Government Warns Local Contractors

THE Government has urged local contractors to improve their performance if they are to continue undertaking various projects around the country.

Transport, Works, Supply, and Communications Deputy Minister Mutaba Mwali said foreign contractors had continued to prove that they were committed and capable of executing Government projects compared to local ones.

Dr Mwali said this when he toured the construction works in the newly-created Limulunga District of Western Province.

After the tour, Dr Mwali said it was disappointing to find that works by local contractors were still at a slow pace compared to those being undertaken by a Chinese contractor.
