NGOCC oppose Miles’ ideas

Non-Governmental Organisation Coordinating Council (NGOCC) board chairperson Beatrice Grillo says suggestions to use the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) to pay school fees for those left out of the University of Zambia bursaries is a misplacement of the purpose for the fund.

Ms Grillo said the purpose for CDF should be community based and not to manage individual’s problems in the communities.

Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa on his facebook page on Wednesday asked his constituents whether he could use part of the CDF to pay for a Lilanda resident Emmanuel Sakala who got six points but has been denied bursaries at UNZA.

Ms Grillo said Mr Sampa should instead use his influence to open dialogue for Parliament to push government to improve public education and health for the poor people in Zambia.

  1. So did the 2000 that got bursaries get 6 points? If not, then we need to know what criteria is used to give bursaries. We cant have a situation where kids who get 6 points are not given a bursary and yet some with twenty something points are given. We need a transparent system where names of bursary recipients are publicised in the newspaper together with their points.
