A local contractor has failed to complete the construction of a Maternity Annex at Kabushi Clinic in Ndola six years after the contract was signed.

The project was expected to have been completed in a period of 18 months.

Stardy Construction, a company owned and operated by Defence Permanent Secretary Stardy Mwale was awarded a K1.6 million tender to construct a Maternity Annex at the clinic.

Copperbelt Acting Health Director Christopher Dube revealed that construction works started in 2013 and were expected to last a period of 18 months.

Dr. Dube also confirmed that the contractor has been paid the 1.6 million Kwacha which is the value of the contract.

This came to light when Kabushi Member of Parliament Bowman Lusambo toured the clinic over the weekend.

And Mr. Lusambo who is also Lusaka Province Minister called for the arrest of the contractor for failing to meet contractual agreements.

He also directed the Ndola District Health Office to terminate the contract immediately.
Efforts to reach Mr Mwale by broadcast time proved futile as his line went unanswered.
