The Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda said that 142 Members of Parliament had not applied for funds to develop their constituencies even at a time they needed PPEs or sanitisers in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Constituency Development Fund was increased to $175 000 from $50 000 but MPs are demanding that it be disbursed in United States dollars.

68 members applied for CDF this year while 67 did not apply for 2019 and only 20 missed the 2018 allocations.
