Responding to questions from MDC-T senator for Matabeleland South Sithembile Mlotshwa, local government minister, Saviour Kasukuwere said government will give residential stands to legislators in various cities and towns in a bid to ease the accommodation crisis facing them.
I want to thank you very much, Honourable Senator, we have not denied making sure that our members of Parliament have serviced land, if anything, we are currently going through the process of making sure that land is available, serviced residential stands to a number of our senators and members of the National Assembly. Particularly those in cities which are not preferred by the majority, for example, Bulawayo, Gweru and Marondera, we have already made strides in terms of accommodating individual interests of our MPs. It is only in Harare where, because of limited serviced land, we have not been able to progress in the manner that we would have expected.
Asked by Bulawayo Senator Tholakele Khumalo on when the allocation would begin, the minister said already some members were benefiting.
