Building Three New Cities
On March 2014, SONIP President Orlando Veloso announced a visit to three new cities being built in the country’s capital, that totalled 18000 houses in “Zango oito mil (Zango Eight Thousand)”, “KK cinco mil (KK 5 Thousand)” and “CIF cinco mil (CIF 5 Thousand)”.
Built on an area of 416 hectares is the new Zango which comprises 8,000 units of combined economic model, of which 2,780 single-family homes (including twin houses) and 5,220 buildings.
The “KK 5000” occupies a 75-hectare neighbourhood unlike this public housing and is characterized as a public housing consisting of 188 buildings, spread over 2 blocks in a total of 5,000 residences.
The “Cif-5 thousand,” on the other hand, further settled close to Kilamba’s spatial relationship, including the development of 5,000 residences, and began to be built in June 2012, almost like “Zango Eight Thousand.”
The 3 housing is epitomized in the construction of primary and secondary schools, kindergartens, water treatment facilities, structure centres, electricity networks as well as areas reserved for social services and/or public establishments and others on the financial stake market.
The initial area includes 9 primary faculties, 8 secondary faculties, 710 buildings, 24 daycare centers, and 50 km of roads. The project was intended to be developed in three phases, with a total of 82,000 residences in a 54 square kilometre district.
The KK is the first to be completed to benefit a substantial part of the citizens who have already paid the state and are waiting for the dwellings, according to SONIP Chief Commission Chairman Orlando Veloso.
