Blacklisting construction firms will end shoddy work

Editor,

A lot has been said about the conduct of some construction companies with  regard to whether they have been able to deliver on the tenders they were awarded. Reports implicating these firms in shoddy work are not something new.  

For instance, Parliament, recently ordered an audit of a controversial tender to renovate its buildings.

The lawmakers insist the renovation was not done properly and tendering procedures were not respected.

When a company is contracted, and it fails to deliver, it should be in position to take responsibility for its inefficiency.

To save other clients from being fleeced, it is only in order that firms found guilty of shoddy work or forgery of bidding documents are punished.

 I  believe, blacklisting the firms will help a great deal.
