In a move to improve the construction industry in the country, the Contractors Registration Board (CRB) early this month deleted from its register seven local contractors for failure to abide by laws and registration regulations.

Speaking to this paper in an interview recently, CRB board chairman Charles Kitwanga said the deregistered contractors failed to abide by the Contractors Registration Act.

Most of the deleted companies were found to have allowed unqualified building contactors to use their names in winning contracts, a move which undermined the engineering profession.

However, he did not reveal the names of the culprit contractors but said six were from Dar es Salaam Region while one was from Mwanza Region added that the companies were in class five to seven.
