Drivers seeking employment in a road project in Chadiza claim corruption

Some drivers from Chipata, Petauke Katete and Nyimba who travelled to Chadiza to seek for employment at the China State Corporation Company have called on ACC, the Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate the criteria being used to employ people.
China State Corporation Company is employing people after being awarded the contract to tar the Chadiza-Chipata road.
Christopher Tembo and Isaac Nyoni told Breeze News in Chadiza that they suspect of malpractice in the manner some drivers have been employed.
More than 15 angry drivers from other districts almost caused commotion at Chadiza council offices, after they were told that only drivers from Chadiza would be given an opportunity to attend job interviews.
But Chadiza district commissioner, Paul Phiri explained that an announcement which was put on one of the radio stations, clearly stated that Chadiza district would employ 25 and Chipata district would also employ 25.
He said that his office is confident that the interviews were conducted in a transparent manner.
Mr. Phiri pointed out that those who were left out, did not just meet the required qualifications.
