North-western province Permanent Secretary Amos Malupenga has dispelled rumours that the province has not been included in this year’s national budget.

Mr Malupenga noted with sadness that some people have taken advantage of the information gap and decided to mislead the people.

He said it is grossly unfair for people to mislead the masses especially those that are not able to read and understand the contents
of the yellow book but largely depend on others for interpretation.

Mr Malupenga said it is not possible that the national assembly can approve the national budget without the inclusion of one province or
sector of the economy.

He was speaking in Solwezi today during the 2015 citizens’ budget dissemination public forum organized by the ministry of finance.
Rumours have lately circulated in the district that the province has been exempted in the this year’s national budget for unexplained reasons.

But however Mr Malupenga said government is committed to simplifying the contents of the national budget by formulating a simplified version of the
budget whose aim is to address the information gap.

He called on all stakeholders to work with government in making policy choices that will drive the country to prosperity by monitoring how
resources allocated for various activities are being utilized.

And Ministry of finance principal budget analyst Willis Chipango said the citizens’ budget is part of government’s continued effort for
transparency and accountability in the management of public resources.

Mr Chipango said government realizes that people cannot meaningfully participate in the affairs of the country and hold government
accountable if the budget is not precise and simple.

  1. ECL when you receive a call from Kabila DRC, what will you answer him on the arms deal and your association with MCK which is not official from DRC government?

    ECL when the Zambians asks you about the RB and Henry Bandas sagas of corruption what will you say?

    Bambo a LungU mufunikila ku nkala naku ganiza vyamene mwana wanyoko is advising otherwise ni zanu bambo, muzaliila paka gazi ikachoke…………

    • Bwezani Rupiah Banda wants to get rid of key members in the PF.

      He is the one behind lies against Home Affairs Minister Davies Mwila and Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba. Why accuse the two ministers of meeting Dr Nevers Mumba? Even accusing the two ministers of challenging ECL. These are cheap politics of the past.

      Rupiah has observed that these are very close to H.E President Lungu, so in order to fulfill his ambitions he has embarked on a mission of causing a tumoil within the ruling PF. He want to take full control of the party.

      We the voters observed the same man bringing the MMD to its knees after his rule.

      RB should go back to his party.
      HE ECL should be very careful with this unpopular politician.

    • Not in context. Lungu is not Malupenga.

      We must be relevant in our contributions.

      Time to campaign is over and not yet.

  3. With or not on the budget you are just a wicked government. How many tones of minerals have you taken out of North western ? So many and you failed to do the road from Chingola to solwezi all you are interested in is making people die in road accidents. To all who have neglected that road here is a verse for you: Psalms 109

    • Reuben, leave the big man alone. Don’t think other readers are dull and you are the smart one. We know why you are against RB, your major fear being the support he gave to PF. RB has every right to support a political party of his choice and come 2016, he will still support a party of his choice.

  7. NE Province will gain importance shortly.
    Rumour is rife here in France that Katanga is going to secede from DR Congo.
    It is for this reason that Governor Kitumbi met with President Lungu at Mfue. On the agenda were:
    1) Keep the borders open to Katanga during the break away
    2) Supply electricity to Katanga via Kasumbalsa, as Kabila will sever the power line feeding Katanga. It is for this reason that heads were rolled at Zesco.
    3) Arms might be needed to repel an attack from Kinshasa, hence why Kitumbi was linked to helping Zambia procure defense equipment
    NW Province will be the staging post to shelter Zambian and Zimbabwean troops who will be ready to march into Katanga to fight alongside the Katangese troops.

    • @french boy be careful when you implicate citizens of other nations. Zambia as a nation can’t be involved in such an even as seceding it’s against international rules.

  8. Anything you hear from PF the opposite is true, its like working for the terrorist organisation, nothings true comes straight…………………so it is very true that NWP has been left out becuase it voted for HH…….if there is any inclusion to talk about, why cant malupenga mention just a few of those projects?

  9. Malupenga you mean you have seen any capital project for the province?
    The only solution to this nonsense is to break away from this nonsense.
    we have oil,minerals,water,rains and fertile soil we have nothing to worry about

  10. malupenga is the one who doesnt understand a shit abt this province. we must see the roads first then we will know that grz is doing smthing for N/west province. everything is dilapidated here.compare this province with other small towns like luanshya, kitwe, mufulira even chililabombwe. citizens are empowered with serviced plots there. even township roads have been done to a fair extent. what is wrong with your province? the council is even failing to demacate land which can be developed by citizens. simple simple basic things is what u r failing to do.
