Budget Passed

Parliament has today finally allowed government   to use up to 630 billion kwacha for 2013/14 financial year without amendments.  This comes after the passing of appropriation bill this afternoon.
Speaking before the bill was passed Minister of Finance pointed out that this year budget will mainly focus on the 2014 tripartite election and free input agriculture subsidy.

Last week Friday parliamentarians completed the committee of supply and scrutinizing money allocation to different ministries and departments vote by vote.

 Speaking after the endorsement of the budget,  MCP spokes person on finance Joseph Njobvuyalema  expressed concerns that the budget has passed without taking into the consideration of major things they had raised during the committee of supply.

But Minister of Finance said the passing of the appropriation bill cements everything and that it shows that members have understood how the national cake has been allocated.
