Noel Nkoma appointed NRFA Board Chair

Finance and National Planning Minister SITUMBEKO MUSOKOTWANE has appointed Economist NOEL NKOMA as National Road Fund Agency -NRFA- Board Chairperson.

Dr. MUSOKOTWANE says Mr. NKOMA replaces AVET MULONGA HAMUWELE, who exited the board by mutual separation, in February, 2024.

Mr. NKHOMA’s appointment is effective from Tuesday 2nd April, 2024.

In a congratulatory message, Dr. MUSOKOTWANE urged Mr. NKOMA to stimulate the Board and management towards the Government’s common purpose of building a better country for all.

Dr. MUSOKOTWANE said Mr. NKOMA should prioritize the value for money in financing by ensuring that road sector funds are well managed and streamlined with strengthened payment systems.

The  Finance Minister has urged the NRFA Board to work closely with other public institutions such as the Zambia Revenue Authority -ZRA, Road Development Agency RDA and Road Transport and Safety Agency -RTSA.

Dr. MUSOKOTWANE said the Board should further work with the Department of Immigration to assess the state of operations at major borders to ascertain that systems are integrated for the benefit of the travelling public and regional trade facilitation.

He has also encouraged the board to work with the Public Private Partnership -PPP- Department in the Ministry of Finance to explore road sector financing models that will further reduce the dependency of major transport infrastructure projects on the Treasury.

He said toll managers should also be engaged in continuous training and re-training to ensure improved efficiency at toll-gates.

This is according to a statement issued to ZNBC News by the Secretary to the Treasury FELIX NKULUKULA .
