Parliament Sitting Extended to Accommodate New Mid-year Budget Statement

Ken Lipenga:To Present Fresh Mid-year Budget Statement

The current sitting of parliament is likely to go beyond next week, Leader of Government’s Business Henry Phoya has announced.

This, according to Phoya, is to accommodate the new version of the Mid-year Budget, following a dramatic withdraw of the original copy by Finance Minister Ken Lipenga on Thursday.

“The process of scrutinizing budget is very important, not only to parliament, but to the entire nation, so if it becomes necessary, we will seek an extension,” said Phoya on Friday.

Speaking at an impromptu press briefing last night, Lipenga said he plans to present the statement embracing new figures next week.

He said financial experts at his ministry are working around the clock to finalise revising the figures and prepare new budget document to enable him present it in parliament next week.

The dramatic withdraw of the budget statement plunged parliament into chaos, with the opposition suspecting foul plays.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
    into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of
    it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?

    Hi there! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had
    to ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work?

    I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    Amenewo akufunika unduna wofalitsa nkhani osati Finance chifukwa finance yamukulira njondayu.

    There is nothing tangible happening with the cabinet ministers. A bunch of people who just want to milk JB’s administration.

    Fire them all and elect a sober cabinet that has a clue!
