Contractor abandons K10 million civic centre project

EMB Engineering, a local contractor engaged to construct Mwense Civic Centre in Luapula Province at a cost of K10 million, has allegedly abandoned the project.
Mwense district administrative officer Geoffrey Chipampata said in an interview that the contractor has left the project site in unexplained circumstances.
Mr Chipampata is disappointed by the conduct of the local contractor.
“A contractor has abandoned works on the construction of a new civic centre here in Mwense. This is a government project being funded by the Ministry of Local Government and Housing. The project is at roof level. Works have come to a standstill,” Mr Chipampata said.
He said it is important for contractors to take their work seriously so that projects are completed on time.
Government is currently constructing a new civic centre in Mwense.
