“The process of selecting people to live in the houses is underway. We should be able to relocate within this year.” Dr. Hamukale said.

The Minister further disclosed that the toll gate along the high way in Choma has been completed and is awaiting certification by engineers.

Meanwhile, Dr. Hamukale has assured road users on the Mazabuka-Turn Pike road that the road is receiving attention.
