Vincent Mwale: No country has defaulted on payments for the Kazungula Bridge

Infrastructure minister Vincent Mwale says Botswana and Zambia have both met their financial obligations towards the construction of the Kazungula Bridge across the Zambezi River, which is now complete.

He said after the final inspection of the bridge today with his Botswana counterpart that no country is defaulting.

He also said the construction phase of the bridge has a great record of no death.

“My counterpart from Botswana and I this morning did a final inspection of Kazungula bridge which is at 100% complete & one-stop border facilities at 99.97% complete in Botswana and at 99.99% complete in Zambia. No country has defaulted on payments to the contractor, both countries have met their financial obligations to date,” Mr Mwale said.

“We thank the contractor and the consultants involved in the project for a job well done, no deaths were recorded during construction – a great record. Our inspection is a step in the process of having the iconic bridge commissioned by our two Heads of States.”
