Effectively, the department is unable to provide services to the citizens.

Confirming the development, spokesperson for the Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services in the Northern Region, Backwell Lungu, said his institution is in the process of paying the bills.

Lungu said there were some delays in processing of the rentals.

Landlord John Sichilima told the media that the department has been failing to pay rentals for six months; hence, the decision to seal the office.

But Sichilima refused to disclose how much he is owed by the department.

Some Government institutions are a shame to our country. Why can’t these public institutions own their own land and develop those lands?
MRA is one of them (they have been renting for years). I hope these prepare budgets for their institutions and Government approves the same. It’s high time the Controlling Officers start thinking about infrastructure development for their institutions. They must know their institutions are run by taxpayers money so thrift is required at every level of their operations.
