Government has financed K10 million for the partial rehabilitation of Parliament Motel notoriously referred to as the “slaughter house”. The rehabilitation will include replacement of aging infrastructure, fixtures, and fittings at Parliament Motel in Lusaka. This came to light when the Minister of Finance Felix Mutati briefed the speaker of the National Assembly Dr. Patrick Matibini on the measures taken by the treasury to ensure that members of parliament who do not have residencies in Lusaka has conducive lodging facilities during parliamentary and other related business. Dr. Matibini and Mutati conducted a joint inspection of the facilities last Thursday; the day before the official opening of the second session of 12th National Assembly by President Edgar Chagwa Lungu. An initial joint inspection of the facilities by the speaker and the minister was conducted in June, 2017. Speaking after the tour of the motel last Thursday, Dr. Matibini noted the tremendous progress made in rehabilitating the facilities “over a short period of time,†and added that, “time has come to relook at the situation and begin fashioning long-term improvements with the ultimate goal of rebuilding.†Meanwhile, Mutati has stated that the release of K10 million for the rehabilitation project at parliament motel is in line with the policy of the government and the vision of President Edgar Lungu to ensure the provision of a conducive working environment for the discharge of public services. During the official opening of parliament last Friday, President lungu reiterated government’s commitment to implement the decent work agenda and finalize the occupational safety and health policy; and the social protection bill, to provide a conducive environment for workers to fully exploit their potential in work places without worrying about occupational accidents. Parliament motel was commissioned in 1967 but has undergone negligible maintenance over the decades resulting in inadequacy and deterioration of boarding and lodging facilities such as rooms, the kitchen, and the dinning. The speaker was accompanied on the tour of Parliament Motel by acting Clerk of the National Assembly, Cecilia Nsenduluka Mbewe, while Mr. Mutati was accompanied by accountant general Dr. Dick Chellah Sichembe.
