THE Zambia Institute for Policy Analysis and Research (ZIPAR) has urged Government to expedite the enactment of the Planning and Budgeting Act to help reduce fraudulent activities in local authorities.

ZIPAR executive director Pamela Nakamba-Kabaso said fiscal discipline is a key element in the successful implementation of various developments strategies like the decentralisation programme.
Dr Kabaso said without the Act in place, the treasury is not compelled to make timely allocations of grants to local governments and by the time the money is realised, some of the planned activities would have passed.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
