President Edgar Lungu has commissioned 82 housing units for paramilitary police officers in Lilayi battalion headquarters Lusaka. The 82 houses were constructed by AVIC International.

The Head of State said the completion of the houses is significant in addressing challenges of accommodation of men and women in uniform. Mr Lungu said men and women in uniform also have a right to partake shares in the infrastructure development if this nation.

The President applauded the Zambia Police officers for their dedication in maintaining law and order, adding that the new occupants need to safeguard the houses. He has since urged the police command to ensure that inspection of houses is done frequently to avoid vandalism.

Meanwhile, Chinese Ambassador to Zambia Li Jie said security peace and stability cannot be achieved without motivating civil servants. Mr Jie said Zambia and China continues to share a good relationship.

And inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja noted that the commissioning of the houses is a great milestone towards alleviating challenges faced by officers. Mr Kanganja said such support is something rare in the service. He appealed to the president to consider demolishing old structures as they are inhabitable.

Mr Kanganja also expressed his gratitude to government for uplifting the standards of women in uniform.

    • Look at Lusambo he looks like a medically fool. The way he costed PF elections in Luanshya only foolish can use him again. Telling families and friends of a grown man that he slapped him? That was it 10000 votes gone!!

  1. The big question is the value of this contract to construct these 82 housing units by Lazy Lungu’s favored construction company AVIC. There is nothing in the article

  2. The whole President commissioning 82 housing units! Surely can’t Police IG Kanganja do this simple task? Are these movements about killing hangovers?

  5. Look at those degraded slum-like housing behind Lungu. No wonder 82 normal houses seem like a huge upswing for Lungu to commission.

  6. Is this all he does? In the last week he has commissioned 55 houses in Luanshya, a re-opened Nickel mine in Mazabuka, a couple of milling plants and now these 82 housing units. For goodness sake! Doesn’t he have an ‘in’ and ‘out’ tray to attend to at State house? Doesn’t he have issues to address the nation on? To answer
    questions? When does he over see what his corrupt appointees are doing?

    This is ridiculous. After these tours within the country, he will next be flying somewhere outside.
