Kitwe mayor challenges local contractors

KITWE Mayor Mpasa Mwaya has urged contractors who are being contracted to carry out various projects to ensure that they deliver professional and quality works to gain and hold the confidence of the government and the public.

Ms Mwaya said local contractors should strive to deliver projects to the expectations of the government, which was the custodian of the funds being released for Constituency Development Funds (CDF), Local Government Equalisation Funds (LGEF) projects and others

She said this when Kitwe City Council handed over an ablution block at Kawama market which was constructed using the LGEF at a cost of K414, 537

Ms Mwaya said the construction of the ablution block was a response to the directive by President Hakainde Hichilema for all local authorities to prioritise the construction of ablution blocks in markets

And Kamatipa Ward Councillor Fewdays Kapembwa said he was elated by the handover of the ablution block to marketeers and urged them to guard the facility jealously

Mr Kapembwa said the ablution block was the first ever toilet since the formation of the market and that it will go a long way in providing sanitary conditions for marketeers
