SATA Moves RDA From Ministry Of Works & Supply To Office Of The President

Flash Back: President Sata On Facebook
President Michael Sata has announced that his office will take over RDA from the Ministry of Transport, Communications, Works and Supply in order for him to supervise all road projects.

Speaking during the launch in Lusaka this morning, President Sata said the development is in line with the Patriotic Front’s promises of improving the country%u2019s road network.

He says the launching of the “Link Zambia-8000″ road project, is the beginning of the many projects to be undertaken by the PF government.

The President has since urged provincial ministers to identify key roads in their areas in order for government to develop them.

Speaking earlier, Transport, Communications, Works and Supply Minister Christopher Yaluma said government is committed to ensuring that the road network across the country is developed.

The Leopards Hill Road project would go over Chongwe River and connect Feira right through to Luangwa Bridge.

On the other side, the road would provide a link to Kasisi, Chipembi, Chalimbana and Palabana, among other areas.

    A Mr Biggie Smallz do not get used at insulting others because they can trace u using advanced method of IP networks in locating the PC U are using unless you are beyond the border. Although I can tell that u are within the country. I feel help reading latest hidden activities in government circles than reading about insults

     Kasisi, Chipembi, Chalimbana and Palabana, among other areas. Copperbelt,Central,Northern,North-Western,Lusaka Provinces and Congo DR traffic will be using this road; study transport economics
     Feira right through to Luangwa Bridge. Eastern province and Malawi will be using this road to Zimbabwe via Chirundu border
     These are two different road networks will converge at some towards Chirundu: now which other road network is more profitable than this one.

    Another 90 days promise. This is just another lie which will haunt CNP. 1 year and has nothing to show for it. This tribalist is a total failure.

    @kapuli…it is true people have built houses on the national railway line? where was ZR and RSZ when the first foundation of these illegal houses was being dug.Problem we have in Zambia is that we allow anarchy to take root and then we start fire fighting after damage has been caused.

    As a matter of fact it is not unusual in zambia these days for squaters to ask govt for compensation when they are legally evicted from land that was never theirs.

    I was also shocked to that Zesco. ‘is mandated to supply power to whoever pays regardlesss of where their houses are located’. as a result of this ineptitude zesco now has to pull out conductors and power infrastructure from Yellow Shop land in Libala South!
