FORUM for Democracy and Development (FDD) president Edith Nawakwi who is perceived to be pro-ruling PF has joined others seeking clarity of policy by President Michael Sata’s government.
She explained that there is need for government to seriously plan and begin to ensure that much more attention is paid to the decentralization policy if Zambians are to benefit in all corners of the country.
FDD leader whose party policy is to take decision-making to the people in districts points that the concept of decentralization being advanced by the PF government would continue to suffer more setbacks if councils were not closely monitored.
She observes the need to make sure there are functional administrative centres to make the system effective and efficient.
In an interview on Qfm call in program Nawakwi explained that if not seriously taken and explained to authorities at district and provincial levels, President Sata’s pronouncements risk yielding positive results as anticipated by the people who voted for him and his PF party in 2011 polls.
She has since called on the Ministry of Local government and Housing to ensure that all local authorities are given clear instruction on how monies are supposed to be used.
