The Public Service Commission (PSC) said civil servants who are set to benefit from the Government’s $60 million non-monetary incentive scheme should move into their new houses by April next year.
In an interview yesterday after touring the three sites for the housing units, Public Service Commission chairperson Dr Vincent Hungwe said the first housing site was at Knockmalloch along Harare-Bulawayo Road in Norton. There are two other sites in Glaudina and Dzivaresekwa in Harare. The Knockmalloch site will have 260 houses out of 600 units, Dzivaresekwa (262) and Glaudina (270). Said Hungwe:
The land in Norton has been serviced and the beneficiaries have been identified. It is expected that come the end of the first quarter of 2019, the beneficiaries will be moving into their properties. The second project here in Harare is the Glaudina one. The units are being built and there are about 270 for civil servants. Here in Dzivarasekwa, we have been informed that there are 600 units and 220 of them will accommodate civil servants.
He said those who are not civil servants can still accommodation with single bedroom units going for $18 000.
