Paramount Chief Kyungu has expressed delight with that start of the construction of the much-awaited K504 million Karonga Stadium after government handed over the project to a contractor.
“It is very pleasing that construction work at Karonga Stadium has commenced,” said Kyungu, an influential chief in northern border district.
The site for the stadium is at Baka Research Station in the area of Paramount Chief Kyungu.<
Government handed over the site to Nangaunozge Building Contractors to start constructing the stadium early last month.
Karonga district commissioner Rosemary Moyo said the construction works for Karonga Stadium have finally commenced.
“The contractors are on the ground,” she said.
Moyo hopes that the facility will be ready for use in not too distant future.
She said the stadium is a “big project that demands contractors to be given enough time to mobilise resources.”
Community chairperson for Karonga Stadium construction project, Kossam Munthali, said they are monitoring the construction progress .
