New Pay Housing Scheme On Cards

Government has introduced a new national housing scheme for low and middle- income earners, the Home Ownership Scheme, which will see the building of high-rise flats and servicing land for sale to people on the housing waiting list.

The programme was introduced as a way of protecting home-seekers from bogus housing cooperatives and land developers who fleeced people of millions of dollars by illegally selling State land to them.

This is in line with the Zim-Asset target of 313 000 houses countrywide by 2018, while Harare Province is expected to build 105 935 houses.
