 Serenje-Nakonde Road woorks commended

By Staff Writer

Opposition United National Independence Party (UNIP) has commended government for quickly responding to various calls to rehabilitate the Serenje -Nakonde road.

Party spokesperson Reverend Andrew Mwima says the move is a clear indication that the new dawn is a listening government.

Reverend Mwima said that his party is happy with the development and is hence ready to support the new dawn government on issues that benefit the citizenry.

He said that the said road was becoming impassable and posing a serious threat to road users.

Reverend Mwima also said his party will provide credible checks and balances as well as remind the government on issues it may not be aware of.

“We want to advise government to strive to meet the expectations of citizens who have entrusted it with the mandate to manage the country’s affairs” he said.

The Road Development Agency (RDA) last month engaged China Geo Corporation to begin maintenance works on the Serenje-Nakonde road before commencing major works.
