NG-CDF drafts a five-year strategic plan

The National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) is in the process of developing a five year strategic plan that will steer the implementation of the fund.

NG-CDF Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Yusuf Mbuno said the strategic plan that is currently at the drafting stage will align with the government’s Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA) and vision 2030.

Speaking Tuesday in Machakos during a stakeholder engagement forum Mbuno hailed the fund as one of the initiatives unveiled by the government to roll out development to the grass root level.

“The government is very keen on ensuring that development starts from the bottom as all other agencies we pick up direction from the government and the strategic plan will be in line with the government’s long and short term goals,” he said.

The CEO said after the stakeholder engagement the draft strategic plan will be presented to the Fund’s board of directors after which it will be finalised and launched.

“We will also engage parliamentarians and get their input before formally launching the document,” said Mbuno.

He also called on constituencies to develop their own strategic plans to guide the operations and implementation of the fund.

“All constituencies are being guided to take the cue and roll out their own strategic plans,” noted the CEO.

The 2023-2027 strategic plan will inform resource allocation for the fund to ensure equitable social economic development across the country.
