The contractor working on the 90 kilometre Lundazi- Kazembe road has abandoned the works.
Lundazi District Commissioner, Janet Palukani confirmed this to Breeze News.
Ms. Palukani however, could not name the contractor but says that he is not seen at the site.
And Chris Nyirenda from Mankhombo village in Chief Kazembe’s area says that the road in question is in a deplorable state and becomes impassable during the rainy season.
He says that villagers in the area find it difficult to use the road when transporting their farm produce and when going to Lundazi for medical care.
Mr. Nyirenda has appealed to government to quickly engage another contractor who can finish the works as soon as possible.
