New stadium in Livingstone
Southern Province Sports coordinator Kennedy Mubanga says the construction of an Ultra Modern stadium in Livingstone will start in the first quarter of 2014.
Mubanga has told ZNBC news in Livingstone that the project was on tender evaluation level with the contractor to be identified early next year.
He has since called on Livingstone residents to be patient as the government is committed to infrastructure development.
And Mubanga has dispelled rumours that the contractor engaged to renovate the Maramba stadium has abandoned works saying that the contractor is still on site.
Mubanga says works on some portions of the 23 Million Kwacha project had temporarily stalled because they were not provided for in the 2013 budget but not they have been funded in the 2014 budget.
He says the ministry has also made tremendous steps in improving all sporting activities in the province.
