The deputy minister for Works, Transport, and Communications, Atashasta Nditiye has directed Tanzania Airports Authority (TAA) to sue the contractor constructing passengers’ building at Songwe Airport over delay.

The deputy minister issued the directive to TAA recently after he had inspected the 11 billion/- project being implemented by DB Shapriya.

“I direct TAA to take legal action against the contractor because the government has already paid him since February 2015. To-date however, he has not accomplished the project which was supposed to be completed within eight months," said Nditiye, adding that the Government can no longer tolerate the delay.

He further added that the government would report the contractor to the Contractors Registration Board for disciplinary measures.

Meanwhile, Works, Transport and Communications Minister, Prof Makame Mbarawa, expressed concerns over the apparent slow pace of implementing the 28km road project from Urambo – Kaliua in Tabora Region.

After inspecting the 37.6 bn/- project recently, Prof. Mbarawa noted that it was behind schedule and told its contractor, namely Samota, Anam and Jossam JV, that it was incumbent on him to warn against the disturbing tendency of local contractors to go slow on public projects. 

"I want to see progress on the works…trend shows that some local contractors are performing slowly, so [you better shun their approach] and accomplish this project as required," Prof. Mbarawa said about the project which, apparently, has already been paid for, according to Tabora Regional Tanroads Manager Eng. Damian Ndibalinze.

The minister said the Government would not hesitate to sideline contractors who fail to perform as per their contracts. “They will not be given public contracts in the future,” he insisted.
