The National Construction Industry Council (NCIC) mandated to ensure that all contractors, consultants, material manufacturers and suppliers and all stakeholders in the construction industry are operating within the governing rules as stipulated in the National Construction Industry Act as well as Codes of Ethics of 2009, has spiked off on its register Tambala Building Contractors and suspended Pemi Construction indefinitely for what it claims is professional misconduct and dishonesty..
“Tambala Building Contractors and Pemi Construction were found to have conducted themselves contrary to the Code of Ethics for Contractors in the Construction Industry and have subsequently been found guilty of professional misconduct and dishonesty after going through a disciplinary process in accordance with the Disciplinary Rules governing the construction industry,” reads a NCCI press release in part.
NCCI Chief Executive Officer Linda Phiri has said that the action has been done in accordance with Section 27 of the National Construction Industry Council Act.
We understand that following this the two are not allowed to operate in the construction industry in the country.
“The National Construction Industry Council is hereby advising all stakeholders to take note of this development and ensure that they do not hire the services of Tambala Building Contractors and Pemi Construction as doing so will be in contravention of the NCI Act,” the statement which does not provide further details on the two contractors’ misconduct adds.
The National Construction Industry Council (NCIC) was established by an Act of Parliament in 1996 with the mandate to regulate, develop and promote the construction industry in Malawi.
