The office of the prime minister has boasted of a 73% performance in implementation of the NRM manifesto
Making a presentation at the ongoing manifesto implementation week briefings at the OPM, the commissioner Monitoring and Evaluation Timothy Lubanga said OPM had achieved a lot in terms of rehabilitation of war ravaged areas, combating corruption and improving good governance.
He said introduction of local government performance assessments in last 2 years has helped improve accountability for funds and transparency and as a result improved service delivery
He however cited a number of challenges that have hampered implementation of some of the projects like budget shortfalls and delays in reporting and disbursement of NUSAF funds from district to beneficiary communities.
