Kitwe mall suffers setback


Construction of Freedom Park Shopping Mall in Kitwe has stalled because of misunderstanding between the owners and financiers of the project.

Local Government and Housing Minister John Phiri revealed this in Parliament on Thursday during the questions for oral answer session.


Dr. Phiri was responding to a question from Kwacha Member of Parliament Boniface Mutale who wanted to know why construction of the shopping mall has stalled.

The Minister says government has instructed the Kitwe City Council to find another partner for the project so that works can resume.

The estimated cost for the mall owned by Platinum Gold Equity is 15 million dollars.
