Lack of proper planning for the Constituency Development Fund triggers the National Government to develop and review the current 2013 CDF Act.
This is crucial to ensure all development funds are disbursed as planned to achieve tangible developments – improving people’s livelihood in all constituencies in the country.
The Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD) Selina Boso Kipili made the statement through the national broadcaster last Friday.
Meanwhile, she says the 2013 CDF Act also propose to establish Constituency Offices, Constituency Development Committees and Constituency officers.
This is to ensure a mandated system is in place at the Constituency-level to effectively manage the disbursement of funding.
