Government workers occupying dormitories at the Farmers Training Centre in Chadiza District are facing eviction.

Government workers occupying dormitories at the Farmers Training Centre FTC in Chadiza District have been ordered to vacate or pay 1000 Kwacha rebased per month as rent.
Most government workers were caught unaware by the move when some Agricultural Officers started delivering letters of increment of rent from 250 Kwacha to 1000 Kwacha for those occupying the dormitories.
Some workers complained that the Department of Agriculture has taken such a move because it wants to accommodate some Chinese contractors who have been engaged to construct the Chadiza–Chipata Road.
And Chadiza District Agricultural Coordinator DACO, Mwaba Lubasi, told ZANIS that his department has its own way of accommodating the Chinese contractors.
Mr Lubasi also says that the department has received communication from the Provincial Agricultural Officer informing him to evict people from the FTC, adding that the Training Centre was meant for farmers.
He says the FTC is just acting as a transit point, and that people such as government workers are only supposed to lodge there for two to three months in their process of looking for accommodation but that some people have over stayed at the institution.
