Senior architect in the Buildings Department, Christopher Lindeire, has assured President Lazarus Chakwera that construction of a four-story M’mbelwa Office Complex worth K1.8 billion, which commenced in 2018, would be completed by end this year.

Speaking on Thursday when he briefed Chakwera during a tour of the project which is under construction, Lindeire said almost all construction works of the complex office have been completed.

“As you can see, the whole structural elements of this building are complete. What we are largely remaining with are finishing touches, such as plater which we are currently working on,” said Lindeire.

He added that upon completion, the office complex, which has 60 offices, will house all ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) working under M’mbelwa District Council.
