Presidential adviser calls for CDF transparency

Presidential adviser on parliamentary affairs Maxwell Thyolera has called for transparency and prudence in the use of Constituency Development Fund (CDF).

He said this on Saturday at St Denis Primary School in Rumphi where he toured CDF-funded projects in the district.

Thyolera said transparency ensures that there is trust among various stakeholders which in return facilitates smooth implementation of projects.

He said: “I have noticed that the community is committed to contributing to the development of this area. For instance, they have built school blocks up to roofing level using their own financial resources.

“The council, using CDF, will provide roofing materials. However, I am requesting the council to improve on transparency as the project committee at this site is not aware of the cost of roofing materials.”

Rumphi district commissioner Emmanuel Bulukutu assured Thyolera that the concerns will be addressed.

St Denis Primary School deputy head teacher Wesley Kuwale said the school needs more classroom blocks.

“The school has 14 classrooms against 2 062 learners,” he said.

Thyolera also visited Chandamale Primary School in the district where CDF is supporting the construction of two teachers’ houses.
