Government has approved the construction of fifteen thousand housing units for all the three defence units in the second phase of the housing project.
Minister of Defence Davies Chama disclosed the development when he addressed officers from Mumbwa Zambia National Service and Zambia Airforce Units.
The Minister said Government is working on improving the housing crisis among the men and women in uniform to ensure they live in better houses befitting their status.
Mr. Chama said ZNS is expected to have a share of two thousand houses as it is the most affected.
He also disclosed that a contractor has already been identified.
And the Minister of defence has warned the defence personnel to desist from abusing social media.
He regretted that some officers have lost their jobs due to abuse of social media and called on the staff to use social media for social interactions.
