Deputy Minister of Homeland Security and Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regional governor for the south Charles Mchacha has asked Anti-corruption Bureau (ABC) to investigate Mkaka Construction Company over shoddy work on Road.
Mchacha made a request on Thursday during DPP‚Äôs rally in Neno North following complaints from chiefs in the district that the first 10 kilometers of the road construction which was finished in last year has already developed potholes and drifts.
He said the money that government has already spent on Neno road is not equivalent to the substandard work that the contractors has done on the ground.
According to Mchacha the owner on the contracted company is an active member of a certain opposition party and government ordered the contractors not to proceed with the work after it was reviewed that the substandard work on the road was a deliberate plan by the opposition so that people should blame DPP led government for the shoddy work.
He said government is facing a similar challenge in Thyolo where a member of UTM party was awarded a contract to construct the new district council offices at the district headquarters but up to now there is nothing tangible to appreciate.
‚ÄúWe have seen the work on the road and it is a big sabotage to the government because this is not type of the road professor Arthur Peter Mutharika promised people of Neno hence I am asking ACB to investigate these irregularities,‚ÄĚ said Mchacha.
