Green Economy and Environment Minister Collins Nzovu says government will initiate resource recovery mechanisms on any projects that are of poor quality, overpriced or abandoned by contractors that have been paid.
Mr Nzovu said that cabinet approved the creation of a fast track court to prosecute those that stole public resources, and his Ministry will make full use of it.
“We want the local people to take ownership of projects in their areas without political interference or intimidation, no civil servant will be victimized for doing what benefits the country,” he said.
Mr Nzovu said this when he inspected progress made on works under the Lake Tanganyika Development Project in Nsama District of Northern Province.
and, Northern Province Minister Leonard Mbao said the provision of quality health care services remains of Paramount importance to Government.
Mr Mbao said he will engage the Minister of Health to deploy health workers at Kapembwa health post to serve the people of the area.
And Kapembwa Health Post Community Health Assistant John Chama appealed to the two Ministers to help push for confirmation because his team is not confirmed but working as volunteers.
