Nkwashi will host more than 9460 residential plots, with sizes ranging from 360 square meters, 505 square meters, 670 square meters and 1300 square meters. Our house plans are designed by among the best architectural firms on the African continent and will be made available to plot owners. These are provided by designers of the V&A Waterfront and the Green Point football stadium in Cape Town, which was part of the 2010 FIFA World Cup games Plot owners will benefit from amazing panoramic views, completely paved streets and roads, water and sewage services, electricity lines across the whole estate, and of course unrestricted access to its gardens, lakes and parks. Residents will have all the benefits of city living, but all the breath taking views and fresh air that come with great open spaces out of the city.
Purchase of a property at Nkwashi is made by application. Prospective residents must select a property from the available inventory of properties within each suburb. Prospective residents may apply to purchase more than one property. Applications will be reviewed and if successful, approval will be provided within a few minutes of submission. Once an application has been approved, the contract of sale between Thebe Investment Management Ltd and the purchaser will be signed. As Nkwashi has been designed as a fully functioning town, purchasers will not pay cash for their selected properties; rather they will simply be required to make a rate payment for communal services. Thebe will use rate payments to continue to develop and improve the estate, ensuring that residents enjoy living in the town. This would be similar to rate payments that people typically pay to their municipalities in other towns. Please note that residents have full rights to sell their properties, leave their properties as an inheritance to their loved ones, mortgage their properties or use them as collateral. All residents will have equal and full access to the town’s parks, lakes and green spaces–including for weddings, parties and other events.
Residents of Nkwashi will hold title to their properties. These will be registered with the Deeds registry at the Ministry of Lands.

Nkwashi has been designed to function as a fully self-contained and modern city. It will have its own central business district, several residential districts, an education district, several green spaces, fully paved roads, centralised water and sewerage networks and even its own democratic self governance system. In many ways, it will be Zambia’s best planned and most modern city.
Nkwashi’s residential areas will be divided into 12 district areas. These district’s will each be unique to the other, with subtle differences in landscaping. Each district will also consist of a maximum of three suburbs with approximately 300 properties each. Every district will be individually governed by representatives elected by its own residents. All together these representatives will constitute the town’s general assembly, which will represent the interests of the town’s residents.

This will require all residents to commit themselves to the town’s democratic principles and values, as well as its strict environmental and aesthetic standards. Nkwashi has been designed for people who aspire to live their lives to the best of their potential.
