Veteran Politician, Nason Msoni says it is prudent to consider the re-introduction of social benefit systems to cushion the impact of the removal of subsidies.

Mr. Msoni says it is time government started providing for the vulnerable persons who desperately need the assistance of government.

He says he will continue to advise government on the need to make a bigger provision in the budget for social service delivery systems to function efficiently and fairly.

Mr. Msoni adds that capital projects should not gobble up a huge chunk of the budget as this tends to benefit a few people at the expense of the majority.

He notes that the lack of proper and meaningful economic progress in Zambia is largely attributable to the kind of politics which speaks to the low caliber of political leaders and the quality of debate of national engagement.
