Malawi Government has said it will soon start constructing houses for middle and low income Civil Servants in the country.
Stibbe Vital Capital Funds Company has promised to support the project.
Minister of Lands and Housing, Henry Phoya disclosed the news Friday in Lilongwe after he led foreign dignitaries to Kamuzu Palace to meet President Dr. Joyce Banda on the project.
“One of the dignitaries met the president in Japan when she went there for Government business and he introduced the project. The president asked the person to come in the country so that they could discuss it,” Phoya said.
Phoya added: “The Company wants to construct houses for middle and low income categories, so government decided to priotize Civil Servants who are faced with housing problems.”
The minister explained it has taken about 30 years for government to construct houses for civil servants after the ones that were built by Malawi Housing Cooperation (MHC) were sold to people.
The company Stibbe Vital Capital Funds is based in Switzerland and has projects in Angola and Mozambique, and Malawi will be the third country to benefit from the project.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
