GOVERNMENT has released K975,000 for the construction of three chiefs’ palaces in North-Western Province.
The palaces to be constructed are for Senior Chief Kalilele in Solwezi district, Chieftainess Ikelenge in Ikelenge and Chieftaines Kucheka in Zambezi.
North-Western Province Chiefs and Traditional Affairs officer Njekwa Namushi confirmed the development in an interview yesterday.
Mr Namushi said the construction of the palaces is expected to start once the tenders for the projects have been awarded to successful bidders.
Mr Namushi, however, said the project has delayed to start because the designs and guidelines for the palaces were not released on time.
