  2. If I was a member of Parliament I’ll be drafting up a bill to give option to buy and sale to Serviceman, because house is an investment that can be used For collateral.

  3. Ba Daniel D. Chisebwe, above, u sound dullo. How can u sale a police or army house, which is located in a barrack or police camp? Meaning people will be retiring & living in the barrack or police camp while new recruits have no houses. Dullo bane. Find out how other countries empower people. House empowerment is done through giving loans (mortgages) for employees to buy or build own houses elsewhere, if they are in the security wing. Actually other countries that are serious about empowering workers have done away with giving employees housing. A worker is paid a gross salary that includes allowances (including housing allowance) then with that package everyone gets own mortgage to buy own house, which they pay for over a period of their employment. And its theirs when they finish paying…
