Entrepreneurs urged to position themselves for CDF projects

Filed under: Business,Latest News |

Manyinga Town Council Chairman Henry Sakuwaha has advised the business community in the area to equip themselves with necessary documentations before being considered for local projects’ bidding.

Sakuwaha says there is an urgent need for the Business community to have Statutory documents such as business or company registration, Tax clearance and registration and Workmen’s Compensation Fund , among others before they can be considered for various works in the area.

He stated that the statutory obligations will be the needed qualifications for any entrepreneur to be engaged in various constituency development fund (CDF) projects.

Finance and National planning minister Situmbeko Musokotwane, during his Budget address in parliament las Friday said the new dawn government has given K25.7 million CDF per constituency

Stating that the revised and upgraded Constituency Development Fund CDF is meant to benefit local people,  Sakuwaha urged local entrepreneurs ensure that they legally registered their businesses.

“It’s only when you have right documentation from PACRA,NCC,ZRA and other documentations that’s when most of you, local people will benefit from CDF projects,” he said.

The Council Chairman said that it is disheartening to see local projects like building a school being given to other people other than locals.

The new dawn government’s vision is to empower local people, to enable them develop their own communities hence increasing CDF allocation from K1.6 Million to 25.7 Million, he said. Lusaka Times
