Zambia: Building President's House in Advance Good Idea


THE current Constitution of Zambia provides for a President to be built a house as part of his or her retirement package.

I, therefore, feel it does not make sense to wait until a President retires before the construction can start.

The President's house is big and costs a lot of money, so it is prudent that the costs are spread for a long period of time.

In my opinion, I feel serving as President of a nation is a respectable position that deserves recognition.

I therefore, wish to commend those who have included the budget to start building President Michael Sata's house.

There is also need to consider and if this has not been done, to construct a house for former President Rupiah Banda and the two late presidents, Levy Mwanawasa and Chiluba (MTSRIP).
