Government says it has approved K7.3 billion for the implementation of various development programmes in Central Province this year.

Vice President George Kunda said this today, when he addressed scores of Serenje residents at Kaunda Square. Mr. Kunda said the money will be used in the construction of schools, health centers,the rehabilitation of roads and many other development programmes.

He urged the Zambian farmers to go into crop diversification, which he described as key to helping the country to address the various challenges associated with the global economic downturn.

He said government is working out modalities aimed at reviewing the Fertilizer Support Programme (FSP, in order to make it more effective in responding to the various needs of the peasant farmers in the country.

Mr. Kunda further said, government is putting in place, remedial measures to revive the country’s agricultural sector, by opening up the Nansanga farming block.

  1. What about the K10 billion that is still missing? We need to solve one mystery first before we move on to another.

  2. Kaunda Square?? Is this what Chiluba had changed to Freedom Square?? Now back to Kaunda Square..hahahahahah Ba UNIP na bawina, nga uletalika uleima by AIR………

  3. #3 Kimbanguist. I remember those days when we had a ward chairman by the name of Mr Chishimba. He used to close the market whenever he wanted to hold a ward meeting, and of all places the venue used to be the market. Imagine how inconviniencing it was nganabakutuma amapasamulopa na Lyons or Tanganda tea. On the CDF, I think some rural places like Serenje with agriculture potential it would be beneficial to, at least for two years, buy three tractors which the constituencies would be using at a minimal fee as contribution for the drivers salary and for fuel. Nomba katwishi basakalanyongo ngakuti baficitafi.

  4. What the 7.3 billion kwacha can do is being exaggerated…..I can imagine those serenje villagers ululating and dancing to this bogus information

  5. But pa Zambia pali ma sebela!

    So you clowns are just balling in tax payer’s money huh? 10 billion missing, billions spent on heifers sorry hummers, billions spent on mobile clinics, Zambian airways contract, Predator’s trips every week what the hell? Ministers fighting for allowances?

  6. plz monitor how tht money will be spent n dont just look at pictures n think the projects r done! go and observe……but tht aint even enough to build anything !!

  7. I am , what am I because of central province . I take keen interest in ,the development of central province.

  8. What can K7.3 billion do for the province as big as the Central Province?! After all the middle-men gets they cut; the money left will only be enough for pit latrines on a few rule clinics. Give me a break!!!!

  9. Why approve K7.3bn for development projects for a province when K10bn went to just a few individuals in Lusaka? Koma Maths yakana apa.

  10. Yes! Yes! Wow, is Central Province getting this on merit or because Kunda hails from there? How much is going to other provinces? We really need to know. Where is this money coming from? How was the approval process conducted? Are there any development projects needed in other provinces, and if so, when will they get funded?

  11. “Mr. Kunda said the money will be used in the construction of schools, health centers,the rehabilitation of roads and many other development programmes”…Come on Mr Kunda,this money is only enough to build ONE school,period!

  12. Kunda is not discussing issues with RB. I thought RB is purchasing Mobile Hospitals, if there’s money ear marked for them same, why duplicate the same? Kunda and RB, put your act together.

  13. The minute you read something that you can’t understand, you can almost be sure that it was drawn up by a lawyer

  14. Welcome to the Jungle where the cat loves to scratch.The rat squeals ,and the polar bear feasts on the blubber of seals.The pack of wolves be scheming on a bunch of gazelles,Where the leopards grab the wilderbeast down by it’s tail. You see the chimps they grow hips they hustle and sling in trees.Elephants for security that move tons of leaves,The bluebirds arrest parrots that love to talk or eagles that stalk fresh-water trout under the wing of the hawk .You see the vultures pick the pocket of whatever remain In the brain we watch but a shadow of the lion’s mane,Whose roar is loud enough to take the stripes from a zebra.He camouflage his bets and his spots of a cheetah shouldn’t gamble with a cheetah and not expect to get beat
    You silly goose you know he move fast

  15. Now you’re neck deep in depth with a bunch of lone sharks ,So you move on a colony of ants with aardvarks, you see most of the everglades controlled by the gators,It was crashed by the crocs who came years later,See the locusts had swarmed with the bees ,the tick moved with the fleas ,the dragonflies and the wasps shared with the seas,the crab and the leeches sucked your blood flow and they laugh like hyenas when they out to catch dough.see a million mosquitos from the West now carrying the virus that made the boars less wild

  16. The scorpion set up a sting for sly foxes, that use stool pigeons just to keep them in the boxes
    While the black widow laid a web for the bachelor, like daddy-long-leg and his hype man, tarantula ,They both prey on grasshoppers beetles and flies and they all become instant meals the moment it dies.What costs little, is a little worth,so some lose they lives wandering on the wrong turf.From birth they grow up walking the thin line,It’s like the jungle sometimes ….

While the black widow laid a web for the bachelor like daddy-long-leg and his hype man, tarantula .They both prey on grasshoppers beetles and flies,and they all become instant meals the moment it dies.What costs little, is a little worth ,so some lose they lives wandering on the wrong turf .From birth they grow up walking the thin line,It’s like the jungle sometimes

  18. The young is lost at their own cost, dreamin, Screamin how we never hold positions, that’s the meanin,Brothers we are all victims share the same grief.

  19. .The elderly shake their head in disbelief but still no relief comes.Billions of kwacha are stolen in cartels by the rich, yet the poor continue wallowing in poverty but we claim we are a christian nation.

  20. .The elderly shake their head in disbelief but still no relief comes.Billions of kwacha go missing, yet the poor continue wallowing in poverty .

  21. we claim we are a christian nation.,Romanism in tops, papers and knots.Churches and liquor stores on every corner.

  22. You cant have a good girl friend unless you gat whips and threads,every thing has gone material,I wish I was born in 1909.

  23. Surely, most bloggers on this forum need re-education. So uncritical and unanalytical. I only enjoy 0.01 percent of the submissions.

  24. So we resort to f*cking b*tches like miss dice or miss nice,just to catch an organsm so as to keep the doctor away.

  25. #32 That is the reason you will remain in Zed proud and free yet an economical prisoner,cause we speak in riddles we have gone past ya comphrension,sorry

  26. #17 Roots
    Am also wondering how a K7.3 Billion can be used in the construction of schools, health centers,the rehabilitation of roads and many other development programmes. It is a riddle for me honestly.
