Government Unhappy with the slow pace of development in Northwestern province
Solwezi, September 25TH, 2014, ZANIS —- Government has expressed its disappointment at the manner in which developmental projects were being implemented in north western province.
Provincial permanent secretary Amos Mapulenga has since warned heads of government departments in North western province to stop frustrating government efforts or face dismissal.
Mr. Malupenga was speaking when he officiated at the provincial development coordinating committee in Solwezi today.
He said development in the province is lagging behind due to lack of commitment from heads of government departments in the region.
He wondered why K500,000.00 meant for the construction of maternity wings at four different health centers in the District is still lying unutilized when government released the money in February this year.
Mr Malupenga also sought an explanation from the department of water affairs in the province on why Solwezi airport has continued operating without running water.
Several officers from different government departments were at pains to explain why government projects under their care have stalled.
The permanent secretary has since called for the change of attitude among government officials in the province adding that they must work to fulfill the expectations of the public.
