‘Residential, office accommodation morale booster’

JIMMY CHIBUYE, Choma
MINISTER of Finance Alexander Chikwanda is confident the completion of the more than 60 housing units and a six-storey provincial administration in Choma will motivate civil servants to positively contribute to national development.
Mr Chikwanda said the new infrastructure should inspire government employees to discharge their functions effectively.
Mr Chikwanda said this after inspecting the projects on Friday.
“I am happy to see that the contractor is doing a commendable work on this project. We are happy with the progress and quality of work, and I am sure this will act as a motivating factor to all civil servants,” he said.
Mr Chikwanda, who was accompanied by provincial minister Nathaniel Mubukwanu and other senior government officials, was impressed that high-cost houses, which include two for the minister and permanent secretary, have already been painted and are awaiting electricity connection.
He said the completion of the construction of the houses will address housing challenges among civil servants.
Government has engaged several contractors to build high, medium and low-cost houses for civil servants and a provincial administration following then President Michael Sata’s decision to move the provincial capital from Livingstone to Choma about three years ago.
And Mr Mubukwanu thanked President Lungu for continuing with development programmes in Choma and Southern Province as a whole.
