Government has started working on a low and medium income housing scheme that will benefit civil servants.
At a meeting between Local Government Minister Saviour Kasukuwere and civil servants’ representatives yesterday, a technical team was set up to start working on the scheme that will provide decent accommodation for the Government workers.
I met the civil servants representatives today and we discussed issues to do with accommodation for all Government workers. I’m happy that we agreed to come up with an innovative scheme that will see the civil servants owning houses. We’re working on setting up a technical team that is led by Apex Council president Mrs Cecilia Alexander and Urban Development Corporation (Udcorp) to make sure that the scheme is well designed for the benefit of the civil servants.
He said the technical team will also ensure that civil servants are not deceieved of their hard earned money while trying to acquire accommodation.
