Vincent Mwale who served as Infrastructure and Development Minister under PF has confirmed that works on the Lusaka-Ndola dual carriageway were not executed despite making a $30 million payment as counterpart funding to China Jiangxi because government wanted to change the mode of the contract to a Public Private Partnership.

Following the expose by a private owned News Diggers Newspaper, Finance Minister Dr Situmbeko Musokotwane has said the investigative wing has taken interest in the matter.

The PF Government paid US$30 million to China Jiangxi for the construction of the Lusaka-Ndola dual carriageway which was supposed to be part payment towards the $1.2 billion total cost.
