“This has been done following initial reconciliation of allocations by a majority of district councils. This validation phase has been deemed successful by the said stakeholders,” reads in part the statement.

Nyandule Phiri added: “The Ministry would therefore like to take this opportunity to appreciate the remarkable support it got during the reconciliation and urges all stakeholders to continue the collaboration during the first phase of program implementation.”

The Ministry has since introduced the toll free number: 60606 where people will be reporting any anomaly.
