Balaka Civil Society Organization (CSO) Network have hailed Member of Parliament (MP) for Balaka Central East Constituency, Chifundo Makande, for good citizen engagement in project implementation.
Balaka CSO network through its Governance Committee recently conducted a monitoring exercise in which they were looking at how the council was utilizing the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) as well as the District Development Fund (DDF).
Speaking Wednesday during a stakeholders meeting in which Balaka CSO Network invited all Councilors, MPs, Area Development Committee (ADC) chairpersons, traditional leaders and all District Development Committee (DDC) members, Chair for Balaka CSO Network, John Bamusi, said the engagement meeting follows the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that the council signed with the CSOs.
â€œAs you noted in the report, some MPs are doing well when it comes to citizen engagement in terms of development, and one good example is Honorable Makande who is on record to be fully engaging the community when implementing the CDF, Said Bamusi.
Deputy Director of Local Government Services, Darwin Kupangani reminded participants on the CDF and DDF guidelines.
