South Districts' Upgrade Advances

WORKS to upgrade three newly-created districts of Southern Province have so far reached 60 per cent. The works cover Kazungula, Zimba and Chikankata districts.

Transport, Works, Supply and Communications buildings director, Danny Mfune said the contractors had performed the works at an appreciable rate and were within schedule.

The works include the construction of a post office, civic centre, 20 low-cost houses, a police post, 10 medium-cost houses and an administration block. Inspection in the three districts revealed that most works were above window level while other structures had already been roofed.
