China Construction Firm Halts Dam Project Citing Shortfall Of Zambia Government Funding


China National Complete Engineering Corporation (CMEC) has halted construction works on the $499 million Kafulafuta Dam project because of lack of funding from the government. This is according to a letter dated February 5, 2020, issued to subcontractors. But Copperbelt Minister Mr. Japhen Mwakalombe has said the works have been halted not because of lack of funding but because the ground is wet.
