Kasenengwa Member of Parliament Sensio Banda has challenged Caritas Chipata to be categorical and mention the Members of Parliament from the province that have failed to deliver.
Speaking in an interview yesterday, Mr Banda argued to the contrary, saying in his case he has performed to the expectations of the electorates in kasenengwa
Mr Banda has explained that despite coming in through a by-election, he has managed to initiate a lot of developmental programs in the area such as giving people access to clean and safe drinking water and rehabilitating roads among others.
He says when he was elected into office, only 25 boreholes were working in the constituency but now a total of 115 boreholes are operational which is a milestone in delivering development.
Mr Banda also states that the road network was bad in Kasenengwa before he came in but the situation has changed as most roads are now being worked on in all the wards.
He has further said the construction of the Kasenengwa Mini Hospital is expected to commence soon thereby taking health services as close to the people as possible.
However,lawmaker was quick to note that members of parliament face challenges to fulfill their campaign promises due to delayed release of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) from the treasury, among others.
Mr Banda has further cited COVID 19 pandemic as an unforeseen natural challenge that affected the allocation of funds to some needy areas thereby derailing some developmental projects.
Last week, Caritas Chipata Good Governance Programs Coordinator John Mthadziko Zulu issued a statement that the current crop of MPs in the province have failed the people by failing to facilitate development.
