Citizens what’s your say?

The Lusaka -Ndola Dual carriage way road was initially estimated to cost $500m.

President Edgar Lungu commissioned the project a few days ago.

To build the 321km, it means that the loan contracted will be $3.8million per kilometer.

The average for road cost in the region is $320,000.00 per kilometer.

Zambia already spends a ridiculous $1m per kilometer.

On this road, the project will gobble $3.8million per kilometer!
