Inyatsi Construction Limited has with immediate effect terminated all contracts with government and shut down its operations in Zambia due to lack of funding towards the projects.
This is the contractor engaged by government to rehabilitate Mazabuka/Turnpike and other road construction projects across the country.
Inyatsi Site Manager, Martin Abdul has told Byta FM News exclusively that government owes the construction company over K200 million for all construction projects across the country.
This includes projects in Mazabuka, Ndola, Mufulira, Solwezi and Mwinilunga – which he says has left the company in losses.
Abdul added that government’s irregular funding has frustrated his company, forcing it to shut down operations in the country and losing interest in working with government.
Abdul says he is disappointed and feels used by government after the company used its resources to work on the roads.
Efforts to get a comment from Southern Province Minister, Edify Hamukale proved futile as his mobile phone was switched off.
