Authorities Upbeat on Neno Youth Centre Construction Completion
Authorities have expressed optimistic they will meet deadline for construction of Neno Integrated Youth Centre.
This comes barely two months after Minister of Youth and Sports, Ulemu Msungama, expressed displeasure with the slow progress of the project.
Manager for the Center, Hope Mwafulirwa, says the facility which will impart skills in agribusiness, poultry and ICT, will be ready by June.
"After the minister’s concern, we have seen tremendous effort by the contractor. They are almost at roofing level. This is encouraging. Through that, job creation under the jobs for youth initiative will be achieved," he said.
The project was at foundation stage at a time of the minister’s visit.
Mangalasi Construction Company Managing Partner, Lum Gumbo, attributed the delay to power challenges.
"The issue which was delaying us was sorted out. We will finish in time come June," he said.
