CENTRAL Province Minister Credo Nanjuwa has urged civil servants in Serenje to devise strategies that will ensure residents the area benefit from the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) that will be allocated to the district.

Mr. Nanjuwa said there was need for all Government employees to understand the budget that was presented in Parliament by Finance and National Planning Minister Situmbeko Musokotwane in order to prepare adequately for prudent utilisation of the funds.

Speaking when he and the Energy Minister Peter Kapala addressed civil servants here on Thursday, Mr. Nanjuwa said civil servants should acquaint themselves with United Party for National Development (UPND) manifesto to ensure that their programmes were in line with the aspirations of the ruling party.

“Let us understand the 2022 national budget that was recently presented, we are aware that more money will be allocated to the district but how prepared are we as a district to handle such sums of money, all those are strategies that we want you to start putting together and see how we can be efficient in the utilisation of the funds,” Mr. Nanjuwa said.

He said civil servants as technocrats should ensure that they played their role of translating and implementing the aspirations of the party in Government.

Mr. Nanjuwa however discouraged civil servants in the district from aligning themselves to politics but concentrate on duty and improving the livelihood of people they were called to serve.

He said lack of manpower and transport challenges being faced by the labour department in Serenje was not unique adding that most of the Government department in Central Province were faced with similar challenges.

The minister said the New Dawn Government was alive to the challenges and that the Provincial administration would soon embark on engaging all districts to appreciate their challenges.

Mr. Nanjuwa appealed to civil servants to remain committed to work and do away with politics to ensure quality delivery of services.
