–Kafue District Commissioner, Grace Ngulube, has bemoaned the state of houses police officers in Chiawa are living in.
Ms Ngulube, who took time to visit the police post, said the officers’ accommodation is cardinal for effective service delivery in the area.
She encouraged the officers to continue working hard and promised to follow up the matter to with their line ministry.
The District Commissioner was reacting to the concerns raised by the officer in charge at Chiawa police post, Joyce Mulenga.
Ms Mulenga had complained to the DC that the problem of accommodation was so serious that the police officers has embarked on constructing their own houses to curb the shortage.
Meanwhile the District Commissioner disclosed that the Chiawa-Chirundu Bridge has reached an advanced stage.
Ms Ngulube said she is impressed with the pace the contractor is moving and is optimistic that by the end of April the bridge will be handed over to government.
Ms Ngulube says the bridge will benefit the local people from the two districts of Chirundu and Kafue as it is costly for them to use the pontoon.
She said the bridge is the biggest project in her district and has expressed gratitude to President Michael Sata for implementing the project.
