    • Jay Jay – At town or district level a 4-year plan is sufficient as long as it is assesed periodically. This is very progressive and we should appluad all involved. The electorate will now be in a position to benchmark progress againast this document. I wish all towns could emulate this

  1. What is in the plan? I have not read of what will be achieved in the next 4 yrs. Hope it is not just talk no action.

  2. What’s the plan? This is very poor journalism. We need to have credits on who wrote the article so we can know which journalist are poor at reporting.

  3. Is there an ecopy I can read? I hope it won’t be classified and hidden away like most Zambian affairs…

  4. i wonder who is in charge of the kabwe council , the street vendors have taken over the whole town, kabwe is the dirtiest town in zambia , so sad to see our town looking so dirty.

  5. Thats a very way to go.
    But the best would have been following the SNDP approach and let
    your SP go up to 2016 to enable continuity if it so happened that there
    was change of government. it is better to be planning within the election
    cycle so that out plans don”t get rendered useless if the mandate of governments
    change. but big up to the District Planning Unit for the Job well done.
