Manyinga District Council in Northwestern Province has constructed the first ever civic center at a cost of K362,000.
ZANIS reports that District Council Chairperson Davinnox Chikuta confirmed the development in an interview today adding that the funds were sourced from the Local Government Equalization Funds.
Mr Chikuta said that it has been a great challenge for the Council to excuse their works effectively without proper Accommodation.
From its inception in 2014,the new Local authority has been renting a building from the defunct MUZAMA Company.
The council has also given ZESCO 1.7 Hectares of Land,where the Power Utility Company intends to Construct a Sub Station and supporting Structures.
Mr Chikula said all these Projects are aimed at changing the face of Manyinga as a District and a hub of development.
The development has excited Stakeholders in the District.
Manyinga Stakeholders Association Chairman Patrick Kamboyi said that when the local authority is functional it means development is near.
He added that the people of Manyinga have been advocating for development and they are now happy that their cry has been answered.
