CHIREDZI
- At least 60 low income earning families are set to benefit from Zimbabwe Amalgamated Housing Scheme (Zaha) project which has acquired land from Chiredzi Rural District Council to construct 103 houses at Buffalo Range.
Zaha director general Dr Killer Zivhu told TellZim News that the project forms part of the organisation's drive to fight the housing backlogs in line with the government's housing policies as expounded in ZimAsset.
"The project is aimed at complementing government efforts to provide decent accommodation for the people and we are targeting low income earners such as the civil servants," said Dr Zivhu.
He said that of the 103 houses currently under construction, at least 60 houses will be finished by the end of this year.
"We have acquired land to construct at least 103 houses and we are confident that before the end of this year, at least 60 families will be staying in these houses. The houses will be fully connected to sewer and electricity systems because all the equipment is available," Dr Zivhu said.
He said the ultimate goal was to have land to construct more than six hundred houses in Chiredzi.
"Our target is to have land to build more than six hundred houses with our own money and then sell to the people," said Zivhu.
He said the organisation will sell the fully-constructed structures for US$40 000 which will have to be settled over an agreed period of time.
Minister of Rural Development, Promotion and Preservation of National Culture and Heritage, Abedinico Ncube, who recently toured the project, praised Dr Zivhu for his work.local
