North Western Province Deputy Permanent Secretary, Douglas Ngimbu has called for the prudent utilization of the 5.5 million euros funded by GIZ to implement the local government decentralization for development programme in two provinces.

Mr. Ngimbu cautioned officers from local authorities where the programme is being implemented to avoid misapplying the money but use it for its intended purpose.

He said this when he officially opened a local government decentralization for development programme (D4DIII) meeting organized by GIZ in Solwezi.

Mr. Ngimbu commended the German government for its continued support towards various developmental programmes in Zambia.

“We value your support and hope that our partnership will continue to grow from strength to strength.” Mr. Ngimbi said.

Meanwhile, GIZ Decentralization for development (D4DIII) Programme Leader Dr. Christopher Peters disclosed that the 5.5 million euros will support 25 councils from North western and Copperbelt provinces.

Mr. Peters said the D4DIII programme which was started in March 2018 will run up to February 2021.

He also stated that GIZ has increased the number of local and international staff to implement the programme effectively.

  1. “Mr. Peters said the D4DIII programme which was started in March 2018 will run up to February 2021.”
    In March 2021 tell us what you would have achieved.
    To civil service and council officers what is development? They even learn what they already know, the only good news for them is allowances galore. Same same whether they are trib.als or non trib.als.

  2. It all sounds suspicious. Why the rich provinces of copperbelt and northwestern province only? What is Germany getting out of this?

  3. Copper being a wasting asset which you give away eats too, means those 2 provinces are the most vulnerable. So no suspicions. It will finish and there will only be holes while your province will be developed at one point if this is not done.

  6. Uhhhhmmm, a bit of truth in that Mr Jay Jay, but you need to do a little more balancing to convince us that you are no longer trib.al.
    Some of the culprits in the art of “Misapplication of Public Funds” are our very own trib.als, that is how deep and widespread this Zambian cancer has become.
