“Hon Minister allow me to commend you and your government for improving the housing standards for our men and women in uniform in Kafue, and we can all appreciate the fact that the 40 houses will not be able to accommodate all our officers hence the need for me as area MP to lobby for more of these houses” Hon Choonya said.
