K1.3 billion CDF idle


Livingstone Town clerk Dras Neves

About K1.3 billion Constituency Development Fund-CDF- for Livingstone has been lying idle in the bank because of leadership wrangles that rocked the council recently.

Livingstone Mayor, Aggrey Njekwa told ZNBC News in Livingstone on Wednesday that two CDF allocations have not been used.

Mayor Njekwa says lack of accountability by some recipients in the past had also contributed to the delay in the release of funds.

He however says the council has now approved thirteen projects at a total cost of K1.2Billion.

Mr. Njekwa disclosed that among the approved projects, is the fencing of the bus stop at a cost of K72million.

He has appealed for prudent use of the funds by the recipients.

Livingstone Council had been rocked by wrangles involving the former town clerk Dras Nerves and the council.

Ms Dras Nerves has since been transferred from Livingstone.


  1. UDA councillor Brill have also greatly contributed to the slow speed of Livingstone City Council development because he has been always been the virus of wranglings in the council BECAUSE HE HAS THE HEART OF JIHAD SUICIDE BOMMBER.Whenever things are not going his way he is ready to destroy himself and even those he claims to be serving or want to serve.If Livingstone people sleep and allow Brill to climb the Zambian political ladder DONT blame anyone but yourselves when you end up having an ALKHAIDAH link in the Zambian system of governance.
    If you are doughting ask Southern POLICE commanding officer,Dras Neves,UNIP,etc
