Constituency Fund causing confusion among constituencies

Friday, 17 March, 2017 - 09:00

Assistant Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Botlogile Tshireletso, says the newly established Constituency Development Fund, has caused confusion among constituencies.

The development fund would see each of the 57 constituencies receiving 10 million Pula, on an annual basis, as a way to transforming the economy and developing communities.

However, Tshireletso says there is reported conflict between village development committees and councilors, on how the 10 million will be shared within a constituency.

Addressing a kgotla meeting in Maun yesterday, Tshireletso revealed that some VDCs have already submitted their proposed projects, without even consulting their communities.

Meanwhile, Tshireletso advised constituencies to do projects that are sustainable and that will also generate income for them.
