CDF put to good use

Residents here hailed the transparent manner through which their legislator Ian Kay used the Constituency Development Fund and urged the government not to stop the scheme.

Kay said that although the money was inadequate, he consulted the people first and as a team they decided to start with projects that affected them the most.

“We started by consulting the people on what projects that they wanted and we agreed on the issue of water for the clinic and generators for back-up and toilets at the bus terminus,” said Kay.

Jane Chikwanda said that women sighed with relief after Kay’s channelling of the CDF towards maternity clinics.

“We have seen that the money was used transparently after the MP consulted the people. In the past women were told to bring candles and water because the clinics did not have electricity and water but that is no longer the case as the MP has bought generators for the clinics and also installed water tanks,” said Chikwanda.

“We would like to embark on a lot of projects that are still outstanding, like libraries for schools, but we no longer have the money,” said Kay.
