Finance Minister Tendai Biti budgeted US$8 million to bankroll the scheme but Minister of Constitutional and Parliamentary Affairs Eric Matinenga said that there would be no disbursement of CDF funds because money budgeted for that purpose had gone to bankroll the unbudgeted civil servants’ mid-year pay rise and to buy medicine for clinics. Most legislators have not accounted for the money they were allocated earlier. –
