  4. Budget devolution is what Zambia has been lacking for decades. If implemented well, it will potentially make HH the best President after KK. Government needs to guide provinces to create coherent structures through which the budget devolution policy will be be implemented. For instance, Provincial assemblies, district assemblies and ward development councils. Again, brilliant idea and we shall keep flooding the president with ideas on how the budget devolution idea can be improved.
