Edgar Lungu and his PF have abandoned ambitious infrastructure projects started by President Michael Sata.
A quick check on all projects paint a sad picture with abandoned sites,stalled projects and silence with former workers suffering.
Sata’s legacy projects such as Link Zambia 8000, still in its first phase has been abandoned.
The construction of district offices, local authority civic centers, and staff housing in over 30 new districts have stalled with contractors absent on site and their certificates unpaid for works done.
Also abandoned are Sata’s new universities in North-Western, Western, Southern Provinces which have stalled.
Shelves have been his quest to build stadiums in Mongu, Livingstone, Solwezi and Kasama.
Sata’s ambitious district hospitals and 650 health centers lie derelict and incomplete.
Instead President Edgar Lungu has been preoccupied with launching new projects to mask the failure of his predecessor’s projects as civil servants chase commissions and corrupt cuts on new projects that will likely face or suffer similar fate.
Despite his pledge that he would not commission or embark on any new projects until he completes earlier projects, President Lungu has been on a race to launch new and numerous projects.
Just this year alone President Lungu has been made to launch C400, a road project to cover Copperbelt townships, a new cement plant, Lusaka-Ndola Carriage Way, telecommunications towers and other projects that make his aides and other civil servants smile all the way to the bank.
The following are some of the projects that have been abandoned in Muchinga province alone.
