Local contractors working on government projects in Sinda have disappointed the district administration.
Sinda District Commissioner, Paradious Sakala says that most local contractors have not made significant progress on their projects compared to foreign contractors.
Mr. Sakala told Breeze News, that Chinese contractors have made a lot of progress despite that some works have stalled due to lack of funding.
He pointed out that local contractors need to improve on their speed of works if government is to give them more contracts.
Last week, Mr Sakala confirmed that works on most government projects had stalled due to austerity measures being applied by government.
He however, indicated that the works are expected to resume this month since government had obtained a loan from Africa Development Bank to finance the works
