Government To Construct A Temporal Bridge On The Lundazi/Chipata Road Within 14 Days

Infrastructure Development Minister Vincent Mwale said Government is determined to have the Lundazi/Chipata road connected following the washing away of the Lundazi Bridge on Thursday.

“We want to ensure that in the next 10 to 14 days we make this road
passable by putting up a temporal bridge and after that the Road Development Agency which is already working on a contract with the contractor, will work on the entire Lundazi/Chipata road,” Hon Mwale said.

Eastern Province Minister Makebi Zulu said the province had been affected by climate change as it had received above normal rainfall. The two ministers where speaking Saturday morning when they toured the washed away Lundazi bridge.

They were accompanied by Lundazi MP Lawrence Nyirenda, DMMU
Coordinator Chanda Kabwe and many other government officials.

    Today I have seen that Zambia has got people who can not think well,because every time something happens they condemn the government, but today I want to tell you something,whatever you can build on this earth can not stand with the nature of God,water is something you can not control,here in Zambia we talk of ka small bridge, ask your friends were houses are blown off because of the nature God wants it to be,just plan and do it again don’t blame anyone, your ideas are weak and weaked,because you think earthly government can control God government and it’s plans,tell me,who can control water on this earth,can government control the waters or you yourselves can you control what God controls, just keep quite and see what little things things this earthly government will do,this entire world no one can control the nature of water from God,unless you are mad and you think you can control,help the government with your plans,rooks
