Transporters accuse Lundazi District Council of being reluctant to pay them for work done.

Transporters who were engaged to transport building materials and other equipment for CDF, Constituency Development Fund projects have castigated Lundazi District Council for failing to pay them.
The transporters who opted to remain anonymous complained that Lundazi District Council is reluctant to pay them despite the work done.
They revealed that the local authority owes them thousands of Kwacha for transporting the materials to the three constituencies in the district.
They complained that the work was carried out between December last year and March this year.
The transporters said that they could not understand why the money is not being given to them because government had already released the funds.
But when contacted, Lundazi District Council Treasurer, Mable Yengayenga said that the money was available in the bank and that some transporters have started getting their money.
Mrs. Yengayenga however, explained that some payment has delayed because it takes time to reach cheque signatories, who stay outside the boma.
