Road Development Agency blamed for delayed projects.

Some contractors working on developmental projects in Eastern Province are delaying to complete the works because of delayed reports to government.
Eastern Province Deputy Permanent Secretary, Patrick Mwanawasa revealed this to Breeze News.
Mr. Mwanawasa cited the Chipata- Chadiza and Chipata Vubwi as projects that have delayed to be completed.
He added that the construction of Lundazi district hospital has also delayed to be completed.
Mr. Mwanawasa has attributed the slow pace of the works to delay by RDA, the Road Development Agency to send a report so that government can release the money.
On Lundazi District hospital, Mr. Mwanawasa says the situation is the same, as the consultant delays to send reports to government.
He however, acknowledged that the three projects have been receiving delayed payments, adding that this is so because contractors might not have met the government requirements.
The Deputy Permanent Secretary says the contract period for projects whose works started in 2014 is 18 months.
