COMMUNITY Development and Social Services Minister Emerine Kabanshi sees light at the end of the Zambian poverty tunnel once a parliamentary draft social protection bill is tabled and assented to by President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

Kabanshi says he Social Protection Act (SPA) will enhance stakeholder coordination and lift the majority of vulnerable people.

Launching the 2017 National Social Protection Week at the New Government Complex in Lusaka, Kabanshi says the vicious poverty cycle will go and people can lead decent livelihood with dignity, once the Social Protection Act is actualised.

“Enactment of Social Protection Act will ensure sustainability of the increased budgetary allocations to social protection programmes in Zambia,” said an optimistic Kabanshi, a soft-spoken Patriotic Front (PF) Luapula Constituency Member of Parliament (MP).

Said Kabanshi: “Government through enforcement of cluster social protection interventions in line with the Seventh National Development (7NDP) will uplift vulnerable people”.
