Government has sourced 8 million euros from the German government to rehabilitate and expand infrastructure at Chalimbana Local Government Training Institute in Chongwe District.

Minister of local Government and Housing Steven Kampyongo disclosed the development today when he commissioned a K2.1 million hostels block at the tertiary training facility.

Mr Kampyongo said the funds will help improve infrastructure and increase the training programmes offered at the Institute.

The recently appointed Minister of local Government and Housing said the commissioning of the hostels is a manifestation of government’s commitment in providing better infrastructure for training students in the local government sector.

Mr Kampyongo stated that the decentralization policy will only be achieved with a human resource cadre with capacity equal to the task required for provision of better services.

Meanwhile, Institute Principal Frank Kunda said the institution will offer quality training in research, consultancy and local government training.

And Monica Phiri, who spoke on behalf of the students, said students will guard the hostels jealously and keep them clean.

Government has embarked on an ambitious programme of implementing the decentralisation policy with the ultimate aim of improving service delivery and taking power to the Zambian people.
