Choma social cash applicants not paid since Sept

By Staff Reporter

Social cash transfer applicants in Choma district who were registered in September last year have not received any payment ever since.

A concerned resident of Sikalongo settlement in Batoka ward, Loti Kaputa expressed worry that they might not benefit from the scheme.

“The government through the social welfare department must activate all the accounts so that even those who were registered in September can start benefiting,” said Kaputa.

Meanwhile, provincial social welfare officer Morris Moono said the names of those who registered in September last year were in Lusaka for approval.

He said once approved, every applicant would be paid in full.
