Ex-Siavonga District boss, Kanyama, speaks on traditional leaders supporting CDF


Former Siavonga District Commissioner, Lovemore Kanyama, has appealed to traditional leaders in the country to support President Hakainde Hichilema on Constituency Development Fund (CDF) programmes.

Kanyama said this should be done through ensuring that there was no favouritism applied to those seeking government funds.

The former Siavonga District Commissioner said this in a statement issued in Lusaka on Monday and made available to Zambia Monitor.

He also appealed to the traditional leadership and the church to fully get involved in monitoring the CDF process.

“There is need to monitor those working against the President’s developmental programmes of seeing that Zambians are empowered and become self reliant,” Kanyama stated.

He said that individuals trying to apply favouritism should be reported because their conduct was against the President’s call of trying to change the face of Zambians.

Kanyama called on the chiefs to get involved in ensuring that no one was left behind as well as those getting the funds put them into their intended activities.

“Chiefs and their subjects must be encouraged to access government funds and acquire hand pumps in order to improve irrigation farming system especially those along rivers, dams and lakes,” he advised.
