  1. I urger the ministry to send pressure and i urge the contractor to come clean to let the public know if the government haven’t disbursed payments on a timely manner. government is notorious for payment delays and to insult you more they don’t care a fork. We need to hold the engineers responsible for this project and further more apply pressure. this thing dragging on too long and politics is getting deeply involved

  2. I practically died of laughter as I came to the end of the article. There is contact information to lodge your complaints. As if they would actually read complaints sent by email. Whatsapp calls would be an exercise in bs. Those guys are just not serious about the job. What makes anyone think that they are concerned about things on the periphery. Still laughing. Somehow, I love their cojones.

  3. Sad that a communique on a critical road project that has been anything but nice includes all type of internal jargon like Arm 1, Arm 2. 3 –like the public knows exactly what that is!! Signs of trouble because you cannot tell me that the content of this was not vetted by some senior people…maybe even in government! Why cant they get it right?

  4. I would really like the ignorant public to stop blaming the contractor for this fiasco and look deeply into the matter- after all we are reasonably educated people. I say this because the contractor has a boss aka some highly paid project manager maybe hired by the Ministry of Works, and that Ministry has a boss aka a head..aka…a permanent secretary…..and this PS has another big boss aka the Minister aka heavy roller! Blaming the contractor is like blaming a cashier for massy’s exorbitant prices!!!! The contractor is at the bottom, he can be fired, he can be pressured to speed up work, he can be punished for not performing–there are so many things that the Ministry of Works can do to avoid delays but the common folk only see the contractor on ground! Be smart my people
