Solid Construction Limited owned by former transporter rafik Gaffer is Embroiled in a Corruption Scandal after getting Construction contracts from the Department of Housing without supporting documents. In the meantime, the matter is stuck at PPDA as they are failing to approve the contracts for Solid Construction Limited.
All this started with the owner of the company using political Mighty and mentioning the name of the State President as having sanctioned such a deal. Rafik Gaffer pushed his way and was awarded three contracts to Construct government houses in the central region at a tune of K12 billion. The contracts lacked IPDC minutes and also evaluation forms. Apart from this the tendering process was never followed because during the opening period Solid Construction Limited never partipated openly. Now the Director General Eddington Chilapondwa is lost since Rafik Gaffer is mentioning the name of the State President. As of Friday it transpired that Rafik Gaffer is lying and he has used three officers at the department of building to clear the way for his Solid Construction Limited. These officers have been asked to write a report to the PS Mr Reneck Matemba.There was nothing like a directive from above to favour Rafik Gaffer and his company. The documents are stuck at PPDA and anything related to Solid Construction Limited should be treated with a pinch of salt. Corruption is now linked with Rafik Gaffer and he is abusing the name of Dr Lazarus Chakwera.
PPDA Director General has since written the Secretary to the President for direction. They have also copied to the ant Corruption Bureau for their attention. Rafik Gaffer sold his trucks to TransNabila and has joined the construction industry. However, his launching pad is soiled with Corruption.
