Fear grips ESCO as bridge takes shape

MINISTER of Works and Supply Mutotwe Kafwaya (second left) on a tour of the Kazungula Bridge.

‘WHEREAS we celebrate the progress that is being made here, for the bridge [Kazungula Bridge], and the value it is going to add to the trade and commerce for Zambia, and the region in general, it also collapses a life of the pontoon service here in Kazungula,” said former Minister of Works and Supply Felix Mutati on his visit here not too long ago.
He said: “So we take that threat very seriously, and that’s why we are here; first to monitor the progress of the bridge and two, to work very hard to create new opportunities for Kazungula.”
Well, shortly after, Mr Mutati was dropped as minister and replaced by Mutotwe Kafwaya – and as per tradition, Mr Kafwaya toured the province to not only familiarise himself with the operations of his new ministry, but also to boost the morale of the workers under his ministry.
One such crop of workers are those from the Engineering Services Corporation Limited (ESCO), a government department in charge of running ferries (pontoons) in the country.
“We are very happy that you have taken the time to come and visit us here today,” ESCO managing director Patrick Nyirenda told Mr Kafwaya.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
