Speaker of the National assembly Patrick Matibini says there is need to reform the budget system so that it suits the needs of people.

Dr. Matibini said before the country prepares the 2019 national budget, the country should first identify people’s priorities.

ZANIS reports that the Speaker said this when he inspected and toured Pemba constituency parliamentary office in Southern Province.

He also urged Professional Assistants and Members of Parliaments (MPs) to sensitize members of public on duties of constituency offices so that they appreciate the MPs ‘contribution to the country’s economic activities.

And Pemba MP, Mutinta Mazoka told the Speaker that people in her area do not fully understand the role of constituency offices.

The Pemba UPND lawmaker noted that this has led to many misunderstandings between the community and their National Assembly representative.

The Speaker is in Southern Province to familiarize himself with the operations of constituency offices.

  1. “Dr. Matibini said before the country prepares the 2019 national budget, the country should first identify people’s priorities.”

    Are you telling us now that this government DOES NOT know what priorities are to improve lives of its citizens?

    What have these people been doing since they got elected?

    Things in Zambia are not well.

    Pretty much everyone that lives there begs for financial assistance from those living abroad. They always have a story so that you feel sorry for them. They think we print money abroad. The fact is the struggle is real, even abroad. It is pathetic as most even stop talking to you if you tell them you can not help them. In fact, most these ‘beggars’ are staunch PF supporters. They keep supporting blindly on empty stomachs.

    So spread the memo, stop…

  2. Good job Dr. Matibini. I hope they will listen to you. Animo Farm can be very unstable upstairs especially in Namwala and online, on LT. They foam at the mouth due to that disease.
