A youth activist in Mkushi District has expressed concern over delays by the authorities to construct the Makeche Bridge in Itala compound.
Bright Mumba has told Komboni Radio News in an interview that residents of Itala compound are worried that a contractor has not yet moved on site to start works on the bridge especially that the rain season is fast approaching.
Mumba is worried that if the bridge is not quickly worked on, residents of Itala compound will be cut off from the rest of Mkushi district as the bridge is the only one that connects them to the Central Business District.
He has since appealed to the relevant authorities in Mkushi District to quickly work on the said bridge in order to protect the lives of residents and easy the movements of goods and services.
