He encouraged members of the public to remain vigilant and report individuals engaging in corrupt activities.

He further called for discipline among local authorities, noting those entrusted with managing government funds, adding that these funds belong to the Zambian people who have the right to know how they were utilised.

He also warned individuals who have received CDF funds to repay them if they have not been utilised properly, emphasizing that the government was committed to ensuring accountability in its programmes.

Furthermore, Kanyama appealed to those who have received CDF loans and grants not to disappoint the government which aimed to promote self-reliance among Zambians through the funding.
