Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo says the construction of police housing units and offices by the government is a demonstration of its commitment to uplift the conditions of service for police officers in the country.

Mr. Kampyongo said government has formulated a robust plan to develop infrastructure for the police service to address the challenge of lack of accommodation faced by security wings in the country.

He said this when he commissioned and handed over six houses to Zambia police service in Chongwe.

Mr. Kampyongo stated that government is aware that a lot of police officers in Chongwe have lived and worked without decent office and housing infrastructure since the service started operating in the area in 1986.

He however assured men and women in the district that Chongwe is one of the priority areas which is set to benefit from the second phase of the housing project for security wings in the country.

“The plan for infrastructure development includes a modern police station and more housing units. This is an ongoing program aimed at constructing a total of 12000 police housing units,” Mr. Kampyongo said.

Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja thanked government through the ministry of home affairs for considering Chongwe as one of the priority areas where more housing units and office space for police officers will be constructed.

Mr. Kanganja stated that construction of a modern police station in the district will enable police officers to carry out their duties effectively.

He also implored police officers to ensure that they remain professional during and after this year’s general elections.

And Chongwe Member of Parliament Japhen Mwakalombe commended government under the leadership of President Edgar Lungu for implementing various developmental projects in his constituency such as the construction of the six houses for police officers.

Mr. Mwakalombe further disclosed that four police posts have since been constructed in Kanakantapa, Lwimba, Katoba and Kwamwena areas using constituency development funds (CDF) to enhance security and order in the district.

  1. I was looking for China man in these photos as you can not take such photos and ignore your paymasters who are building these average housing structures at huge inflated cost via another loan. NHA does construct such houses even better but has no money due to poor govt policies.

  3. “Don’t feed the trolls (aka Kaizar Zulu).” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.
    You SHOULD try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how POORLY they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re NOT worth your time of day.

    Six modern housing units constructed by a Chinese contractor in Chongwe, a town in Lusaka Province of Zambia, add beauty to the area, says…..Stephen Kampyongo.
    CHONGWE, Zambia, April 3 (Xinhua) — Six modern housing units whose construction had been undertaken by a Chinese contractor in Chongwe, a town in Lusaka Province of Zambia, have been handed over to the Zambian government.
    Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo, who represented the Zambian government, provided Chongwe police station with the houses — living quarters and an office space — Thursday, commended the Chinese contractor, China Jiangxi Corporation for International Economic & Technical…

    Source:Xinhua Published: 2015-10-28
    Zambian President Edgar Lungu revealed on Tuesday that China’s Avic International has been awarded a contract to construct about 2,350 houses for police officers.
    In remarks delivered during a ground breaking ceremony for the construction of the initial 48 houses for police officers in Lusaka, the country’s capital, the Zambian leader expressed optimism that the Chinese company will compete the project by the end of March next year.
    The houses to be constructed at a cost of 320 million US dollars will help address the current housing deficit for officers in the security wings, he added.
    According to the Zambian leader, a review of the housing situation in the Ministry of Home…

  9. The security wings under the Ministry of Home Affairs include the Zambia Police, Immigration Department, Zambia Prison Service and the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC).
    The Zambian leader said lack of decent housing is a challenge for the entire country and that his government is determined to come up with initiatives to provide decent housing for the whole country.
    Davies Mwila, the Minister of Home Affairs, said under the project 1,454 houses will be built for police officers, 677 for Zambia Prison Service, 117 for the Immigration Department and 102 for the Drug Enforcement Commission.
    Gong Jiayan, AVIC International senior vice president said his company will ensure that it constructs houses of good quality and assured that the project will be completed within the stipulated period.

  10. This is how the corrupt PF buys the services of corrupt police officers, security services and the army. And it’s no coincidence this happens a few months before the election. And as the government has wasted all monies on cadres, they had to look to the Chinese to fund and construct these houses. Not one Zambian bricklayer worked here!

    Zambia: Under Chinese influence

    FRANCE 24 English
    Some Chinese company have stopped Zambian workers from going home to their families since April last year up to now… as to prevent them from getting infected with covid-19. Chinese can come and go home as they wish. Zambians treated like slaves in our own country by Chinese people who came with nothing. Corrupt government officials wine and dine with the Chinese and turn a blind eye on the mistreatment of Zambians . Chinese buying big chunks of land.. etc..

  12. This is not what you call “empowerment”Renumerate those guys adequately for them to afford houses instead of them living in houses owned by the government.

  13. FUSEKE IS COMING YOUR WAY TROLL

    SO WHAT ARE YOU SCARED OF ??? LEAVE THEM ALONE AND TELL US WHY NO VACCINES ? KK AIRPORT ?? ECONOMIC ZONES VIRTUALLY AT A STANDSTILL , DUAL CARRIAGE WAY ?? KAFUE HOOK BRIDGE 3 + YEARS NOW.. LANDLESS CORNER TO MUMBWA WHERE BEN MWILA RAN WITH THE FUNDS ?? ROADS BREAKING UP IN ALL TOWNSHIP AFTER COUPLE OF YEARS ??????????
    TALK ABOUT THESE ISSUE MOTOR MOUTH

  14. How much kickbacks did the misruling PF officials get to actualize the building of these poor quality police housing? Those cage-like windows will be a death trap in case of fire.

  15. Maybe Zambia needs some kind of elections every two and a half years especially at councilor and parliamentary levels for with fear of shifting power balance many projects would see daylight! NHA indeed has capacity to oversee construction of housing units bit this institution has challenges of resources that are not of its own making. We have heard “We are in a hurry to develop” being sung over and over so many times and it always spans the 4 years of a term as rhetoric! It is only during the election year and the last year of a term that the citizenry experience what they should have been experiencing throughout the term! Everything is rushed and haphazard with more money being pilfered! Cry beloved Zambia!

  16. How can a Govt by the People and for the People survive on dishing out gifts? Where is the Money to buy these gifts coming from? They are Printing and borrowing Money recklessly to buy votes as we get close to the August 12 Elections. The ECL Govt has chosen to buy votes and has ignored the effect of too much money chasing few goods. They are fueling inflation and prices of goods and services will skyrocket and life will become unaffordable and unbearable. That will make ECL even more unpopular. Relying on rigging Elections and crushing Protests against stolen Elections is dangerous and may not always work. ECL is planting the seeds of Turmoil in Zambia. Sishuwa Sishuwa and EIU’s predictions will become reality by August 12,2021.

  17. In all fairness, Zambian govnt should bring to an end this type of retrogressive development. Yes the facilities are with good intentions but the govnt has no money to maintain them!!.Its best the zambian govt help the officers acquire dwelling houses for life other than building staff accommodation… infact even the sitting president should build his own house using his earned money and not draining the state coffers for acquiring a house after his tenure of office!!!!!

  18. It makes my blood boil when I see comments suggesting that Zambia is poor and has no money. Please remember that the real value of money is zero. We have all it takes to build this country of ours by ourselves. We’ve done it before during Kaunda era. We desperately need a change of mindset and those that argue that our government has no money are simply sponsored cronies of the imperialists. Yes, I will say it again, Zambia has an abundance of wealth, we just need to create it sensibly.
