Meanwhile, the council chairperson, Dan Nkosi, emphasized on the need of accountability as the money was meant to help uplift the people’s living standards.

“When implementing this programme, we must always bear in mind that above everything else it is a social protection meant to uplift the lives of the poor,” said Nkosi.

He further encouraged councillors to work together with ward development chairpersons and local leaders in implementing the programme.
