Solwezi East MMD Member of Parliament, Lucky Mulusa, has charged that there is too much corruption in awarding of road contracts by government.
Mr. Mulusa claims the former ruling party MMD was spending one million dollars for construction of one kilometer of the road but that the PF government is spending about four million dollars per one kilometer.
Mr. Mulusa states that there is need for government to explain to the Zambian people why they decided to hike the price of road construction by such a huge margin.
He notes that the fight against corruption was one of the key aspects in the PF manifesto.
Mr. Mulusa has since urged the PF government to go back to their manifesto and study carefully their promises to the Zambian people in terms of fighting corruption.
