President Edgar Lungu says he will engage the ministry of Lands to find out what challenges it is facing in the implementation of the land titling programme.
President Lungu says government wants the programme to succeed so that people can have title deeds.
The Head of State is happy that officers from the ministry of lands have been to various compounds to implement the project.
President Lungu has since encouraged Zambians to acquire title deeds.
The Head of State said this when he visited Namalombwe ward in Chilanga District.
He said government will intervene so that people can get their title deeds under the land titling program if its an issue of resources.
And President Lungu is happy that people in Namalombwe compound will soon have access to piped water.
This follows government’s decision to sink industrial and domestic boreholes in the area.
President Lungu said government is determined to provide clean water to people in compounds and villages countrywide.
The President also inspected a borehole which was drilled using his personal resources.
And PF Chilanga Parliamentary candidate Maria Langa thanked President Lungu for drilling boreholes in the area.
And, PF Chilanga Council Chairperson Candidate Ann Brown thanked the President for allowing ZESCO to connect people to electricity.
Meanwhile Chilanga District Council Secretary Getrude Beene said the council will soon start implementing empowerment programs for women in the area.
And, Disaster Management and Mitigating Unit -DMMU- National Coordinator, Chanda Kabwe said his institution will no longer be spending money on providing water to the people of Namalombwe following the drilling of domestic and industrial boreholes.
