He made the announcement in Nsanje after inspecting a number of construction projects including the Nsanje-Marka road in the district.

“A Deflectometer machine will be used to assess the quality of Nsanje Marka road. And the results will affect the future of the consultants and the contractor further works on government contracts or not,” Hara said.
