ZNS ROAD WORKS LEAVE CROPS DESTROYED IN KASENENGWA

BY SAMUEL KHWAWE

Several maize fields in Chief Chikuwe, Kasenengwa District have been destroyed by the Zambia National Services in the ongoing feeder roads construction, much to the anger of the farmers.

A Visit by Diamond TV to some of the fields found a trail of destruction he tried to reason with them.

Meanwhile, Headman Chikuwe says government had in September last year engaged the local leadership about the construction of the road and farmers were told to leave way for the road.

He says the farmers decided to plant because the works delayed and people thought road works would not commence

    The problem is with government. How do they do road construction in the rain season which most of the time are stalled by contractors to resume after rains. Chimney no plan

    Kwena mwe Max, good for thought. Could they not wait till the rain season is over and people have harvested their crop? Normally cobdtructers goon recess during the rain season. What was the need to destroy such a good crop?

    ZNS cannot construct roads. If ZNS could construct roads, why are we hiring Chinese road builders?

      People you do not believe when your are for-told and believe when you see. There are engineers in ZNS. As a layman, you would not understand the matrix used . The Chinese built hostels at Chalimbana at this time of year. The ground is soft , less tear and wear for machines
