$33 Million FTJ University contractor vanishes: Physical address provided to PACRA appears to be fake

The construction firm believed to have been paid US$33 million as part payment for the construction of the now stalled FTJ University in Mansa applied for local de-registration in 2019.

China Energy Engineering Group Hunan Electric Power Design Institute Co. Ltd (CEEC-HEPDI), a Chinese state-owned enterprise that provides engineering and construction services, could not be found in the National Council for Construction (NCC) database with the source there saying maybe it is registered under a different name.

Documents obtained from PACRA indicate that CEEC-HEPDI was incorporated in Zambia on October 13, 2015 with registration number 120170008976 and wound up business on October 29, 2018, according to a gazette notice dated September 13, 2019
