The PF government says it will return the £2.7 million which Britain’s Department for International Development (DFID) has requested for from its funding to the social cash transfer scheme.
President Edgar Lungu’ spokesperson Amos Chanda told government media that the money has not been touched and is intact in a Zanaco Account.
Chanda said, however, that issue of stolen donor money has not strained relations between Zambia and Britain.
He said the DFID had written requesting for the money and that Government will pay them back.
What Chanda is saying is that PF will only refund the actual money because DFID has demanded it not because the PF regime has done anything wrong.
