An innovative legislator has diverted K7 million from Constituency Development Fund to buy farm inputs for 1,000 women in his constituency, a departure from infrastructure development the fund is traditionally used for.

Wakuda Kamanga : Lesson learnt that ruling party can also lose election

Wakuda Kamanga(Left) : Food first

Kasungu north east MP Wakuda Kamanga (People’s Party) said the programme, he has dubed ‘Nzotheka’ will increase food productivity in his area thereby ensuring plateful of food on tables next year.

“There cannot be meaningful infrastructural development if people are hungry. They need to have food first if they are to participate in development activities,” said Kamanga during the launch of the programme over the weekend.

The women are receiving maize seeds, legumes and a bag of fertilizer each.

Kamanga’s programme comes at a time when the government sponsored programme is dogged with problems as in most areas in the south, subsistence farmers have not received NPK ferilizer as some suppliers are demanding instant payment from the cash-strapped government.

It has also been observed that the beneficiaries of the farm inputs are not only the poor of the poorest as has been the case but included civil servants and some well to do people.

Kamanga said he hoped with his farm input programme, people will fully participate in infrastructural development fully. The programme has been hailed by traditional leaders in the area.

Fellow Malawians, lets not condone law of the jungle. Hon Kamanga is MP in the august house and pretty well knows that the money under LDF was approved by parliament for a specific purpose and not what he did. Every tambala which parliament allocates should be used for its intended purpose and not otherwise. So you can see that the country has a long way to gone because every jim and jill would like to get cheap popularity by hook or crook. Abuse of power is the order of the day and definately the law should take its course, Public… Read more »

When CDF is used to build a bridge, anyone who wishes to cross will do regardless of political affiliation. When It comes to distribution of farm inputs and other food and non-food items we know that political affiliations come first.

Govt has rules and regulations. Dc kasungu knows this and we dont why he authorised this diversion of funds? Arrest for Dc and MP is immenent here. Did every voter benefit here? A bridge benefits all. Who made selection of beneficiaries? I can see corruption here. My question to Dc do guidelines of CDF allow this? If not then its abuse of public funds
