Southern Africa Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) Executive Director Lee Habasonda has advised the Patriotic Front (PF) government to ensure there is increased allocation to infrastructure development in the 2012 budget.
Speaking in an interview, Habasonda said his organization expects that the government will allocate more funds to building of roads and other infrastructure to open up Zambia for investment.
He also urged the PF to make sure that the budget addresses the social sector and capital projects to help citizens meet their basic needs.
Habasonda noted that once the 2012 National Budget succeeds in meeting the needs of the Zambian people it will work to the advantage of the government’s pledge to put more money in the pockets of the voters.
Habasonda further appealed to the new regime to ensure it allocates adequate resources to the constitution making process and work to amend certain laws that do not benefit the citizens.
