RESIDENTS at Itawa Flats and Chinese Complex in Ndola have called for the involvement of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and other law enforcement agencies in the sale of the housing units as a way of ensuring transparency.
Itawa Housing Committee chairperson, Martin Banda said in a statement yesterday that there was need to protect sitting tenants such as widows, widowers, orphans and other vulnerable groups who could be manipulated by some unscrupulous people.
Mr Banda said the sitting tenants particularly wanted President Rupiah Banda to ensure that there was transparency in the sale of the housing units through the involvement of security and other agencies.
He said the president had demonstrated good leadership and also shown that his Government was concerned about the challenges facing the needy in society.
“We want to express our joy and happiness on this empowerment. The president has shown good leadership and good leadership comes from God. The Government should continue with good works to the Zambian citizens,” he said.
Mr Banda said the tenants were also happy that former president Frederick Chiluba had continued to support the empowerment policy.
On Tuesday, President Banda directed the Ndola City Council to expedite the sale of Itawa Flats and the Chinese Complex houses and that the units should be pegged at reasonable prices.

The big question is, WHY HAS MMD FAILED TO IMPLEMENT THE DECENTRALISATION POLICY?
Those in MMD know their fear is that Councils will perform better, especially the City& Municipal Councils which are under the opposition, and that would be a threat to the survival of MMD. This is the perception of those in MMD, its sad to have such shallow minded leaders that can hold back the development of the nation for their own benefit at the expense of the masses.
Finally, are MMD controlled Councils doing better than those under opposition?
Can MMD tell us why Councils they control e.g. Kaoma in W. Province, Milenge in Luapula &Isoka have had misappropriation cases (not misapplication) What of AG reports on Central Govt?
Minister of MLGH, who’s MMD, approves all budgets for Councils.
