Chinese Construction of New Parliament to begin in Mount Hampden

By Blessings Chidakwa

The construction of the new Parliament building in Mount Hampden will begin in two months' time, and Government will accordingly create a new local authority to superintend over the development of a modern city in the area, it has been learnt.

Government, with the help of a grant from the Chinese government, will build a 650-seater Parliament.

Addressing a workshop for district administrators here recently, Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister July Moyo said the new city will be a product of joint venture between three councils -- Harare, Zvimba and Mazowe.
