The completion of 350 housing units constructed by National Housing Authority of Zambia will aid in the housing scarcity that the country has been facing.

According to the CEO for NHA MKP, Charles Holland, the company will have a pre-sale launch for the housing units at the Northgate Gardens Housing Estate which is off Kasungula Road in Lusaka.
In addition to this project, the firm had also constructed housing units at the Presidential Housing Initiative site and at the Ibex Hill residential area.
A need for more than 860 000 housing units was identified in the National Housing Policy Document of 1996 and it was recommended that 110 000 units be constructed in every year.
Hollard noted that his firm would construct quality affordable units in Zambia and through the just completed housing project more that 450 people got employment.
The current project that the company is working on has more than 200 workers with a larger number of the same being women.
Zambia currently has a deficit of 3 million housing units.
