One hundred and sixty people are set to benefit from this year’s Decent and Affordable Housing Subsidy Programme (DAHSP) in Mwanza District, acting director of public works in the district, William Kulapani has said.
“One hundred and sixty beneficiaries have been identified from two constituencies [Mwanza West 80 and Central 80] this year. The figure includes 10 beneficiaries, five from each constituency who will receive the houses as a grant,” said Kulapani.
Speaking earlier, guest of honour, Mwanza West member of Parliament (MP) PaulChibingu urged the beneficiaries to own the project.
He said: “Government is doing all this to improve our lifestyle, from grass-thatched houses to decent houses, that is good for our health.”
About 400 houses have been earmarked for construction in Mwanza in the next four years.
