The National Housing Authority (NHA) is set to initiate a scheme to build about 50,000 rent-to-own housing units over the next few years, Housing and Infrastructure Development Minister Charles Milupi has revealed.
According to a statement issued in Lusaka on Monday, Milupi said 10,500 of such housing units are earmarked for construction across the country this year alone.
He said the Board of Directors and Management at NHA will in due course commence the process of identifying the would-be tenants of these 10,500 three and two-bedroom affordable but quality housing units.
Milupi said this after attending the 42nd Annual General Meeting for Shelter Afrique in Abuja, Nigeria.
