Republican President Edgar Lungu has warned ‘erring’ contractors engaged by government of legal action.
President Lungu says government is in the processing of assessing the quality and pace of works by local contractors.
He says that his administration will not only cancel contracts but also seek legal redress and compensation through the courts of law on all wanting contractors.
Mr. Lungu explained that this is because the contracts were entered into contract with government on behalf of the people of Zambia.
ZANIS reports that the Republican President said this in Mwansabombwe District in Luapula Province yesterday during this year’s Mutomboko Traditional Ceremony of the Lunda people of Mwata Kazembe.
And President Edgar Lungu says traditional ceremonies should be used as platforms for unity and peace regardless of tribe and ethnicity.
President Lungu says traditional ceremonies should be a time to share collective joy and unity for all the people across tribal and ethnic boundaries.
The President says Zambians should use such platforms as a way of working together and strengthening the ‘One Zambia, one Nation,’ motto.
