Some projects under CDF, Constituency Development Fund have stalled in Katete district due to government’s delay in releasing the money.
Mphangwe Ward Councillor Vincent Mbewe told Breeze News in Katete that a number of projects have stalled due to lack of funds.
Mr. Mbewe cited Mwaziputa Clinic in Chief Mbangombe’s area as one of the projects that has stalled due to lack of funds.
He explained that the project started in 2015 but works have been suspended due to untimely release of funds for 2015 – 2016 CDF.
Mr. Mbewe stated that completing the project on time would help address the current situation were pregnant women are forced to walk long distances to access medical services.
And Mr. Mbewe has appealed to government to release the funds so that uncompleted projects can be completed.
