Chipata Municipal Council not officially informed over a cancelled Sable Construction Company road contract.

Chipata Municipal Council says that it has not been officially informed over government’s decision to cancel a township road tarring contract, which was awarded to Sable Construction Company.
Director of Engineering, Andrew Zulu also says that the local authority, which was the client for the project is also not sure about the next course of action.
Mr. Zulu told Breeze News that the local authority just heard rumours that the Ministry of Local Government had cancelled the 89 million Kwacha rebased contract.
He explained that the contractor was expected to have moved on site last week, to start the project, which was supposed to take 18 months to complete.
The cancellation of the contract was confirmed by Eastern Province Permanent Secretary, Bert Mushala on Monday during a meeting with civil servants in Mambwe district.
Mr. Mushala explained that the contract was cancelled because Sable Transport and Construction Company had a lot of unfinished projects.
The 89 million Kwacha project is supposed to cover 15.6 kilometres and includes roads like Mchini-Magazine, Kawalala, and some roads in Chimwemwe and Moth residential areas.
