Breeze FM commended for airing Budget Tracking Programmes.

Chipata Central Member of Parliament, Ruben Mtolo Phiri has commended Breeze FM for its Budget Tracking Programmes.
Speaking to Breeze News, Mr. Phiri says that Zambians need such programmes to promote accountability in the use of public resources.
He says that the programmes also provide an opportunity to government to explain projects that it is undertaking in various parts of Eastern Province.
Mr. Phiri has encouraged people in the province to participate fully in the programmes so that they understand how national resources are being used.
The Budget Tracking Programmes have been running for three years on Breeze FM with support from HIVOS Southern Africa.
The programmes feature heads of government departments, who explain how they are implementing resources allocated to their departments in the national budget.
The project also involves field visits, where producers follow up on projects discussed in the studio based programmes to check on the impact they have on communities.
