Job op­por­tu­ni­ties cre­ated

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Min­istry of Works and Pub­lic Trans­port Prin­ci­pal Sec­re­tary Makhosini Mn­dawe has ex­pressed his hap­pi­ness over the com­mence­ment of the con­struc­tion of the roads lo­cal­lly.

He said such projects are help­ing gov­ern­ment in re­duc­ing the es­ca­lat­ing unem­ploy­ment rate, that is sky­rock­et­ing in the coun­try. He said he wished the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of such roads would have started a lit­tle bit early to help the em­ploy­ees have some­thing mean­ing­ful for their fam­i­lies for the fes­tive sea­son.

Mn­dawe also said the em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties were good news for peo­ple around the ar­eas of con­struc­tion. He said such gov­ern­ment projects were needed for com­mu­ni­ties and en­trepreneurs should take ad­van­tage of such projects.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

“Em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties are in line with the gov­ern­ment man­date to fa­cil­i­tate for job op­por­tu­ni­ties and the road con­struc­tions will help a great deal in achiev­ing the man­date,” added Mn­dawe.

Mn­dawe fur­ther as­sured that the min­istry will en­sure the road up­grades and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tions are fin­ished within the sched­uled time­frame. He said pa­tience should be ex­er­cised as the con­struc­tion con­tin­ues through-out the coun­try.
