Nancholi Nkoka Road rehabilitation delays anger residents

Written by  Chimwemwe Ndawala

Blantyre, May 3, 2017: Residents of Nancholi Nkoka in Blantyre City are unhappy with delays of rehabilitation works of Nancholi Nkoka Road.

Confirming the delay of the project on Tuesday, Blantyre City Council (BCC) Public Relations Officer (PRO), Anthony Kaunda said most of the city’s projects have delayed because the 2017/2018 budget is not yet approved.

“Blantyre City council will start using the 2017/2018 budget when it’s approved; we have many projects on our list to accomplish. Moreover, we encourage well wishers to take part in the development of the city,” he said.

Nancholi Nkoka Road rehabilitation started in March with the patching of pot holes from Chikwawa Road up to Zarara Bus Depot.

Commenting on the road in an interview with a Nancholi Resident, Elaton Kaphela said the delay to maintain Nancholi Nkoka Road has left the road in bad shape and the pot holes from Chikwawa Road to Zarara Bus Depot were also poorly maintained.

“The constructors just start digging pot holes from Chikwawa Road up to Nancholi Market. We had hope that our road will be maintained but up to date, there is no sign of road maintenance at Nancholi Road, the road now is in bad shape than before,” he said.
