CSPR welcome increment of allowance for councilors

Headlines CSPR welcome increment of allowance for councilors

The Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR) has welcomed
Government’s decision to award councillors a K3, 000 monthly
allowances from K700.
CSPR Advocacy and Communication Programme Coordinator Maxson Nkhoma
said that despite the amount not being sufficient,government needs to be
commended for its efforts to motivate the leaders.
Mr Nkhoma said that the move  would go a long way
in addressing issues of councillors being implicated in illegal
allocation of plots in an effort to make ends meet.
He said that while CSPR was aware that Government was tightening its
expenditure it would have been good for the Government to award
councillors with better conditions of service and a better amount of
salary considering the magnitude of the work they do in their wards.
Mr Nkhoma said that just as Members of Parliament (MPs), councillors
ought to enjoy good conditions of service which could help to curb
corruption in the operations of local authorities.
He said that good conditions of service for councillors coupled with
other incentives would encourage credible and competent
Zambians to work as councillors and bring a shift in the
manner the local Government operates in Zambia.

  1. How much is an MP getting per month and later gratuity? The 3pin is a mockery most of these councilors by nature of their JOB have big families on average at home they have 8 then mumbali 10 how can 3pin help????

    • Abena saulosi bamunekafye malnourished, ama councillor bamo kuti waseka, i hope he was not among those who were fighting for food hampers near heroes, or kambwili’s Gabon air disaster stadium.

  2. There is nothing that you are talking about Maxon Nkhoma! You are a beggar. You want the attention of the politicians especially these councillors so that they give you a cut. Imbecile!
