Zambia Railways contractors, suppliers not paid

Zambia Railways is in financial hardships leading to the company failing to pay its suppliers and contractors for over three months.

Company sources have told the Watchdog that the company has only been able to meet half the payments of the suppliers and some contractors working on the railway line while others have not been paid anything.

The development is feared will jeorpadise the company’s ongoing railway rehabilitation as most of the contractors are unable to pay their workers.

Last year, there was an expose of the company whose board chairperson is PF secretary general Davies Chama diverting some money to PF campaign activities.
