CDF NEEDS AGGRESSIVE SENSITIZATION-NZOVU

0

Nangoma Member of Parliament COLLINS NZOVU says the decentralization initiative through Constituency Development Fund – CDF- requires an aggressive sensitization approach to be implemented successfully.

Mr. NZOVU, who conducted CDF sensitization meetings in his Constituency, said he has noticed that there is lack of information among the locals.

He said government increased CDF to ensure that local communities are at the centre of determining their development priorities.

Mr. NZOVU said the uptake of the money for Nangoma Constituency is very low.

He cited the secondary school bursary component of CDF which only has a 20 percent uptake and the skills developed which also has a very low uptake.

Mr. NZOVU said his engagements with the locals in his constituency were fruitful as people are now aware about CDF.
