National Housing Authority employees rehearsing for May Day along Independence avenue in Lusaka.

Workers at the state run National Housing Authority have not been paid for salaries for the past three months.

This was revealed by NHA Acting Chief Executive Officer Waicha Ndhlovu when State House Special Assistant for Project Monitoring and Implementation Lucky Mulusa toured the NHA Headquarters.

Mrs Ndhlovu said Government must come and offer grants to the institution to enable it meet its operational costs.

She revealed that NHA is owed K 900 in unpaid arrears for its property which has made it difficult to even meet salaries for its workers.

And Mr Mulusa assured that Government will intervene in the matter and maintained that the organisation is still viable.

    • 3 months is nothing….. Workers survive on what they pay themselves from government resources, the low workers sell Government gazette papers to marketeers for wrapping Kapenta.

  4. Didn’t they march saying IFintu Ni Lungu? Lungu has money to corruptly votes by buying free bikes in Chipata, people to defect and kaponyas to terrorise the opposition.

  5. lungu and PF are being very careless, this is an election year and they are supposed to be working hard and on top of things. But alas they are clueless on many things and letting things spiral out of control. So they expect people to simply go and vote for them even after messing with their favorite commodity. A rude awakening awaits them.

  7. “She revealed that NHA is owed K 900 in unpaid arrears for its property which has made it difficult to even meet salaries for its workers”. Can you be factual and give us the correct amount owed to you. You think K900 can clear the three months arrears owed to your entire workforce at NHA!

  8. NHA Management comprises jokers. Whenever you approach them to rent either their houses or former INDECO and ZIMCO properties for offices, they have inherited and let out to public, they will tell you that those properties are fully booked and people pay years or months in advance to avoid losing them because they are on high demand. Their staff are indisciplined and the system they use to allocate those public properties is not transparent and known to anyone. They have sold out plots given to them to build more buildings to raise more money giving an impression that they are making more money than they need and today the crying that they can’t afford to pay salaries.
