PREPARE FOR A YOUTH REVOLUTION IN 2026,HH IS A FAILED PROJECT
President Hakainde Hichilema is failing to plan development what then is his JOB? Why did the UPND wait for 5 months to elapse before they could Launch CDF guidelines late because now they are remaining with only 50 days to do everything and submit a compiled list of approved projects or else the K25.7 Million cannot be released as guided by the Law in the Constituency Development Fund Act No. 11 of 2018 of the Laws of Zambia mandates that:
15(1) a Committee shall submit to the Minister a proposed project list and the estimated costs of the proposed projects before the end of the month of March in each year in the prescribed manner and form to ensure timely release of funds.
Technically this money cannot be released before the following processes are done:
1.Advertise and call for project proposals,
2.Institute tender processes to receive bids which doesn’t take less than 2 months by Law,
3.Receive, analyse and approve all CDF project proposals across the country per Constituency,
4.Advertise and engage consultants,
- Compile project cost estimates and prepare BOQs,
- Get statutoral approvals from bodies such as ZEMA (EIAS which take not less that a month by law),
- Local government approvals for drawing for construction projects from planning departments which take not less that 3 months by law.
It is because of lack of dedication to work why our country is messed up. We advised the President to move to state house and get serious with work but we hear he gets to work by mid day as he wastes time in traffic, we told him to sit and work but he chose to be flying out of the country not less than two times per month. Now he has lost precious time and the country will suffer unless he breaks the law and do illegal short cuts because governance matters have timelines enshrine in Law.
Because of UPND POOR Planning and lack of foresight , the year 2022 is technically a wasted year concerning the K25.7 Million CDF fund no wonder they are now resorting to illegal schemes to just steal the money because the Law does not allow for investment of CDF money if it is not utilized according to the Constituency Development Fund Act No. 11 of 2018 of the Laws of Zambia 8(2): A local authority shall retain unutilised funds in the constituency account and investments shall not be permitted elsewhere..’
It is a pity our President HH is failing even to plan, he as himself to blame for being a failed project so early, we therefore advise the Youth to prepare for a Youth Revolution in 2026, HH is a failed Project as 2026 is a wasted year already. A Economic Freedom Fighters-EFF we will make sure that the President HH learns to respect the Law because no one is above the Law.
Wherever we want to go, our feet shall take us there.
Thank you and May God Bless Zambia.
