Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe says all the 156 constituencies in Zambia have received the 2018 Constituency Development Fund as of last week.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe, who is also Lusaka Central Member of Parliament says government will ensure that the Constituency Development Fund is paid on time to every constituency regardless of their demographic and geographical location.

She was speaking during the Lusaka Central Constituency open day in Lusaka at the weekend.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe has since urged Lusaka Central residents to work with her in ensuring that the CDF helps improve their lives.

And speaking at the same event Kasama Member of Parliament Kelvin Sampa commended Mr. Mwanakatwe for the initiative to have an interactive meeting with her constituency.

And some members of Lusaka Central constituency have thanked their MP for holding an open day.


  1. Blurring the line between the Executive and the Legislature. This model needs to be redesigned. It is asinine to use a mild term.

  2. These funds need to be supervised by the people in these constituencies , many times these MPs do not use the funds to uplift living standards of the people who voted for them, all we hear of in parliament are complaints about the government.
    This time it is prudent that these law makers become responsible enough to develop the areas they represent than only representing the people as victims .
    Let them give fiscal evidence of what they have done with the funds for the poor people in their areas .

  3. Comment: Yes you have released CDF, but people who are dismissed from employment have not been paid their leave terminal benefits. for example judiciary dismissed it’s employees by Absenteeism (10) upto now they have not paid them their leave terminal benefits. the director human resource and the deputy director human resource judiciary they are saying they have no funding, they continue to say from last year to date they have not received funding from you minister of finance. people want their money, release funding to judiciary before the end of this year.
