New Zimba district takes shape

CONSTRUCTION of houses for civil servants in the recently-created Zimba district is progressing well with most of the structures nearing completion.
Giving an update on on-going infrastructure development projects, district commissioner Elizabeth Kalaluka said there are 10 medium-cost houses being built for civil servants at a cost of over K6million.
Ms Kalaluka said in an interview yesterday that six of the 10 medium-cost houses are at roof level, while the construction of 20 low-cost and two high-cost houses have reached advanced stages.
The houses, which are expected to alleviate the shortage of accommodation for civil servants in the district, are due for completion early next year.
Government is also constructing a police station, district administration offices and a civic centre in Zimba.
Ms Kalaluka said Government is determined to ensuring that infrastructure projects in the district are completed on time.
She said she is happy that the projects Government has embarked on to facelift her district have also created job opportunities, especially for the youth.
“The district is changing economically with business enterprises coming up. And am happy many local youths are also able to get jobs from infrastructural projects,” she said.
