2022 end-year media briefing

Lusaka, December 19, 2022

To support transparent and accountable in Zambia, CUTS Lusaka held a media briefing with the call for strengthened fiscal controls.

Addressing the media, CUTS Country director Ms Angela Mulenga said domestic resource mobilisation needs to support the medium-term adjustments to create fiscal space for increased social sector spending to cushion the burden on the most vulnerable, help reduce poverty, and to invest in Zambia’s people.

In the spirit of transparency, Ms Mulenga implored government to work together with stakeholders such as CSOs and the media by making public information on Zambia’s public debt.

CUTS also emphasized the importance of publishing a timeline of the debt restructuring to enable citizens make follow ups and in-put.
