There is dubious shortlisting of contractors for the construction and upgrading of the urban roads at a cost of K167billion.
The contract was terminated last year by RDA and government wants to sign a contract with a company called Asphalt Roads run by a Mr Joseph Mwewa who was a Director at Roads Department and Reubex respectively.
If they want to do 34.47km it means he is charging K5billion per KM which is day light robbery.
Kanyunka Mumba who is the Manager Planning and Charles Mushota who is Manager Construction are the ones pushing for this job viciously. The company in question has no equipment to undertake these works.
