General manager of Mpico, Daniel Kafoteka said the government has accrued rental arrears of K4.5 billion.

“They have just added another rental bill of K1.5 billion which adds up to K6 billion. Therefore if they don’t pay, we will have no option but close down the offices and let others in,” he said.

He said the money is huge and is having negative effects on the company’s cash flow.

Officials from ministry of Lands could not provide a comment.

The government is going through difficult economic upheavals forcing the government to cut budgets for some ministries and departments.

The Govt.has money but fails to prioritize. It is management by crisis. We are waiting for fate to determine our future.


The staff at Lands need to be changed this story of non payment of rentals is going on for to long, there is need for fresh faces there, most people have overstayed, funds are diverted for personal allowances
