Governor gives deadline for Luquembo/Sautar section

  • Governador provincial de Malanje, Norberto dos Santos
Quirima - The provincial governor of Malanje, Norberto dos Santos, expressed dissatisfaction with the level of execution and the quality of the earth levelling work of the 118 kilometres of road linking the municipal centre of Luquembo to Sautar (Quirima) commune, having set a week to correct the failures.

The work, which began in March 2020, with a duration of six months (deadline has already passed), is subdivided into two lots, Luquembo/Quirima (60 kilometres) and Quirima to Sautar commune (58 kilometres).

The project, which is part of the PIIM (Integrated Plan for Intervention in Municipalities), is in the hands of Queirós Ribeiro, is budgeted at 480 million kwanzas and has just under 80 percent of the work physically concluded.

The governor, who visited the project on Saturday, said that the work was not being carried out well, due to a lack of technical capacity demonstrated by the company.

In light of this, he determined that the company should increase its technical resources in the next few days and correct the flaws, otherwise the contract will be terminated.

He acknowledged that the region's population, especially that of Sautar, is much sacrificed due to the degradation of the stretch, a situation that imposes urgency in the completion of the works, to facilitate the movement of people and goods.
