Government says it is still committed to constructing houses for all the former Presidents.
Transport, Works and Supply deputy Minister, Richwell Siamunene says government has identified land for the housing projects.
Mr. Siamunene was responding to Solwezi West Member of Parliament, who wanted to know the progress government has made in identifying land for the construction of residences for all former Presidents.
He says government has acquired land for the housing projects in Lilayi, Silverest and State lodge and works are in progress.
Mr. Siamunene says the house for Late President Frederick Chiluba will be built in Lilayi area while it will be the same for Rupiah Banda.
Meanwhile, Late President Levy Mwanawasa’S house will be constructed in Sylverest area.
He added that Late President Michael Sata’s house will be built in State Lodge area.
Mr. Siamunene has attributed the delay to the construction project to lack of funds.
