The suggestion from Gilbert Kachamba, an economic expert, comes barely days after a proposal from the World Bank that CDF funds should be granted to councils based on performance.
Kachamba described the proposal from World Bank as a way to go in improving performance and accountability of councils in the country.
Meanwhile Kachamba has suggested publication of utilization of CDF for a previous financial year as a qualification measure to ensure transparency in local financial management.
