Govt to distribute development equally

General News Govt to distribute development equally

Vice President Mutale Nalumango says the government will ensure that development is taken to all parts of the country.

Speaking during the Vice President’s question time in Parliament today, Mrs Nalumango said the entire country is in dire need of development, thus everyone will receive a fair share of it.

The Vice President was responding to Sikongo Member of Parliament Mayungo Simushi who wanted to know how the government will deliver development to Lundazi Constituency.

She stated that the government is aware that there are areas that were marginalized by the previous government and will ensure that all provinces benefit equitably.

“Government will take development equitably wherever it is needed. There won’t be any selectivity as all Zambians must benefit from government programmes”, she said.

Meanwhile the Vice President stated that the government has continued to distribute grain bags for farmers selling maize to the Food Reserve Agency.

The Vice President was responding to Lundazi Member of Parliament Brenda Nyirenda on the shortage of grain bags for farmers in her constituency with the expected onset of rains this month as announced by the government.

Mrs Nalumango noted that the government is aware of the shortage of grain bags, countrywide and added that the government is currently distributing over 500,000 empty grain bags to the farmers.

  1. Shortage of empty grain bags, we are distributing? Where’s is the distribution center in Kitwe? Is it for free?

  2. We need the Kalabo – Sikongo – Angola road actualised. This is a very important road opening market into Angola and other Countries to the ATLANTIC OCEAN. I wonder why PF could not finish it after completing the Mongu – Kalabo Bridge road.

    Lusaka Times, please intervene and reign into the ads popping up everywhere on your website. Your site is now almost difficult to interact with, read or post anything due to so many poor ads inundating the page. Please do something or I will be leaving.

    Government should not be the one distributing development… they should facilitate and create an enabling environment. And where is the promised decentralization so that provinces and local governments can be in charge of their own affairs, including issues of development?

    What you should be is creating attractive incentives for private companies to do certain business in certain areas. For example, you say if you set up a manufacturing or production plant in Kalabo, Shang’ombo or Mpulungu yours goods/services/profits will only be taxed at 10% or something. That way they will all be scrambling to go and set up businesses there. The issue of everyone doing business in Lusaka is just creating congestion there. It’s not rocket science.

    Government should not be the one distributing…
