Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Ben Phiri has signed the decree.

This follows the increasing number of needy students in the country who lack school fees following the decision by the National Aids Commission (NAC)  to reduce the number of beneficiaries drastically owing to financial problems.

The ministry spokesperson Muhlabache Mughogho said the bursary will not be more than K3 million of the K30 million publicly financed CDF.

Mughogho said the bursary will be done in accordance with the existing bursary guidelines.

If you are changing the process it is probably just to mess it up. All you can do is provide funding osati politicizing it.
