Acting Finance Minister, George Kunda said that once implemented the programme will improve collection of data in all government institutions for national use.

He noted that CDF accounted for K476 Million while other government programs accounted for K1, 413,000, 000.
Mr Kunda noted that various projects have been successfully implemented among others the electrification of Mpumba health centre and market adding and that other projects would soon be completed.
