MP Mwimbu shocked by inflated cost of toll gate

*The cost of the Ndola Toll Plaza at US 4.3 million is way too much*

Edgar Lungu commissioned the Ndola Toll Plaza which reportedly cost the taxpayers US $4.3 million which is about K51 million in our currency at the current exchange rates.

We find this figure highly inflated like many other government projects which are corruptly acquired amounting to daylight robbery of public resources.

Our quick investigations indicates that South Africa has been constructing highly modernised Toll Plazas at the cost of US500,000 only. So what’s so special for our Toll Plazas to cost such an enormous amount of money?

Even if they are trying to perfect the art of looting public resources, this is way too much and reckless, especially amidst the claimed austerity measures under the economy melt down.

We find it unbelievable and unjustified that PF can spend K51 million just to construct those pillars no matter what is fitted there.

A quick look at this year’s budget lines to ministries and government departments indicates that Ministry of Religious Affairs has been allocated K18,958,732, Ministry of Labour has been allocated K36,761,343, Public Service Management Division (PSMD) has been allocated K43,840,823, Local Government Service Commission barely K9.8 million for the whole year and it’s the same with many others yet one Toll Plaza costs us K51 million just to be burdening citizens with more taxes.

The PF must have the conscious and care for the people even in stealing.

    When it comes to stealing,they do it in secret. When people find out and riot, they say it’s a named opposition leader. Keep living in denial, Zambians though cowards but are not fools.
