Malawi government officials are stressing that regular monitoring of construction projects is the best way to rectify the issues of substandard works affecting most projects in the country.

This comes amid concerns that for the past years contractors have been frustrating government as they have delivered sub-standard works despite agreements to carry on standard works.

Through this, Capital Hill has lost huge sums of money.

Speaking to Capital FM after Ntcheu district council signed a contractual agreement with a contractor identified to construct a stadium in the district.

Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development stated that it is worrisome to see construction projects being done contrary to a client’s expectations.

Kiswel Dakamau believes the contractor; Plem Construction Limited will deliver as is expected by the ministry.

“You may recall that the contractor is the same who constructed both Dedza and Balaka stadiums hence we expect him to do the good work he did with the latter.

What we want is infrastructures that will withstand with time and hope the same will be with Ntcheu stadium,” Dakamau explained.

However the Local Government and Rural Development Principal Secretary disclosed the structure will help to enhance revenue collection for Ntcheu district council once finished.

He stressed that with decentralization, infrastructures like stadiums are of great importance in bring in more revenue to council hence helping them render good service delivery to its communities.

Representatives of Plem Construction Limited assured authorities to work to their satisfactory considering huge sums of money government is pumping in to the construction project.

Government through Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development has funded the 20,000 capacity Ntcheu stadium MK4.6 Billion and expect to complete in a year once construction works start at the site.
