Good use of CDF in Solwezi impresses Veep


By Nation Reporter


VICE PRESIDENT Inonge Wina says she is impressed with the manner the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) in Solwezi central constituency had been utilised.

Ms Wina said the channelling of part of CDF to construct a maternity ward was a good idea because it was serving to improve the lives of people.

The Vice President said this in Solwezi on Friday when she inspected Kazomba maternity ward constructed using CDF funds.

She said the construction of the maternity ward would accord mothers access to conducive environment during delivery, thereby reduce traumatic pressures.

Ms Wina said the country had suffered high maternity deaths in the past and construction of maternity facilities would help reduce such deaths.

She has since implored the community in the area to take care of the facility because it was there to serve them.

Meanwhile, Ms Wina said it was unfortunate that some Members of Parliament misused CDF funds which were meant to improve people’s lives in their constituencies.
