Works and Supply Minister Happy with RDA/World Bank Collaboration on Good Governance Issues
- Friday, 01 November 2013
- Clement Masiye
Minister of Transport, Works, Supply and Communications Hon. Yamfwa Mukanga has said good governance in the Road Sector is a cause that is so clause to his heart. Speaking when he addressed over 20 participants who took part in the World Bank / Road Development Agency (RDA) Media and Civil Society Organization Good Governance Training Project in Lusaka recently, Hon. Mukanga said he supported the Project wholeheartedly.
“I firstly would like to thank the World Bank for inviting me to attend this important event and for driving this initiative. It goes without saying that good governance in the road sector is a cause that is close to my heart and therefore the Project is one that I whole heartedly support,” he said.
The minister also thanked the Road Development Agency, National Road Fund Agency (NRFA and the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) for ensuring that they were involved in the Project.
And RDA Director and Chief Executive Officer, Eng. Charles Mushota said he had come to appreciate during the interaction with the participants that there was room for coexistence between RDA , Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and the journalists adding that there was absolutely no need to have operational gaps between the Agency and the two groups.
“I am happy that through this collaborative initiative with courtesy of the World Bank, you can engage RDA on any road project you wish to write about and feel free to come forward and get facts from my office or the Public Relations Office. Do not shy away we want also that partnership. We desire to publicize our works as we together save the people of Zambia,” Eng. Mushota said.
He said the experience of the Agency was that the information that was being picked up by colleagues in the media was very scanty about road projects, which in most cases resulted in distortion of facts. He regretted that the Agency was not contacted in most cases for verification of information and yet the stories became headlines in the media quoting certain NGO sources.
Eng. Mushota hoped that the Agency would begin to see the kind of reporting that would start highlighting the benefits of the roads there were being constructed country wide to the people of Zambia.
And World Bank Country Director for Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe, Kundhavi Kadiresan, said the World Bank will remain committed to spur dialogue among all stakeholders on how to improve governance in the road sector. She thanked RDA, NRFA, RTSA, and ZPPA for their collaboration in the World Bank training initiative of CSOs and the media. The World Bank boss said the willingness to engage was an encouraging sign. She particularly thanked the RDA’s Integrity Committee, who first conceived the idea with the World Bank staff.
Over 20 people selected from various Civil Society Organisations and the media (both private and public), were recently trained by the World Bank and the Road Development Agency on good governance issues in the road sector. The issues included understanding a contract document and related procedures such as the cost per kilometer, road dimensions, surfacing types and agreed delivery periods.Last Updated on Friday, 01 November 2013 13:59
