ZUPED HAPPY WITH GOVERNMENT’S RELEASE OF CDF AS BUDGETED FOR IN THE 2020 NATIONAL BUDGET
The Zambians for Unity Peace and Development (ZUPED) has expressed excitement by Government’s release of the total allocated Constituency Development Fund (CDF) as budgeted for in the 2020 national budget.
ZUPED President Mary Ngoma said a total of 249, 600,000 kwacha has been released to be disbursed in all the 156 constituencies doted around the country.
Ms Ngoma said the release of the funds is a clear demonstration of government’s commitment towards service delivery and infrastructure development.
She has since called on the CDF committees, councillors and members of parliament to ensure that the funds are used for the intended purpose.
She said her organisation realises that in some constituencies the funds have been misapplied and some diverted towards non-essential projects and individual agendas adding that the distribution of the funds must never be politicised and implored all stakeholders involved to put aside their political differences and unite for a common goal of developing their respective constituencies.
Ms Ngoma further appealed to the local authorities to ensure that all CDF projects that had stalled be prioritised and completed before the end of the year.
