Mr Mukanga has told QFM News that there is nothing wrong for government to begin constructing a house for the Head of State because it is provided for in the yellow book.
He explains that there is an allocation in the yellow book for the retirement homes of all the presidents which should not raise eyebrows.
Mr Mukanga says politicians should not try to gain popularity out of correct things being done by the Patriotic Front government.
He stresses that government will work depending on the activity based budget that is provided for.
Mr. Mukanga however could not categorically state whether construction works on President Michael Sata’s retirement house have started promised to inform the nation once he visits the site next week.
He was responding to allegations that government has already started building a house for President Michael Sata before he retires.
