Zambians for Empowerment and democracy Leader Fred Mutesa has charged that president Michael Sata has failed to show his political and governmental experience in his governance system.

Dr. Mutesa says the continued changes in the ministry portfolios is a source of concern as it the practice is most likely to cost more at the expense of other developmental programmes.

The opposition leader notes that Zambia has been implementing the public service reforms which have over the years have seen structural changes to suit the operations of the governance system.

Dr. Mutesa who described the recent changes in the ministrys by President Sata as costly experiments, questioned the rationale behind the continuous re-alignment of ministries.

Dr. Mutesa has told QFM that the PF is now reversing to the system that the MMD left after its experiments of trying to make the ministries suit its ill- conceived agenda failed.

He added that the PF stands to miss its opportunity to improve on the MMD record of failing to deliver to the expectations of the Zambian people.

President Sata last week announced the changes in the portfolios of selected ministries which also saw a mini cabinet reshuffle.

The Ministry of Local Government was changed to Ministry of Local Government and Housing with Professor Nkandu Luo carrying on as Minister.The Ministry of Education will now be known as Ministry of Education, Science, Vocational Training and Early Education and will be Presided over by Dr John Phiri as Minister.

Additionally, the President transferred Christopher Yaluma to the new ministry to be identified as Ministry of Mines, Energy and Water Development.
Wilber Simusa was made the Minister in-charge of Lands, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection.

President Sata transferred Dr Ngosa Simbyakula from the Ministry of Justice to the Ministry of Home Affairs as Deputy Minister with a special responsibility of spearheading the creation of district attorneys’ chambers countrywide.

Dr Simbyakula replaced Obvious Mwaliteta who was transferred to Southern Province as provincial Minister taking over from Miles Sampa who was brought to the Ministry of Finance as Deputy Minister.
President Sata also reassigned Finance Deputy Minister Alfreda Kansembe to the Ministry of Justice in the same capacity.

  1. Critics coming from all direction, advice from none. Lets give our president ideas on how things should be done other than criticizing…

    • Cricitism is advice but knowing fully well that it will be ignored. Why can’t Sata read between the lines and get on with the job? It is difficult teaching an old geriatric monkey new tricks. Sata and PF have failed. They don’t need more time, unless we want a total collapse of Zambia.

    I trust that you are very leaned. To expect an illiterate guy who never finished grade 7 to run a country is asking to much.
    For your own information Chiluba said that the guy was useless. When he was MMD secretary, he failed to produce a single report. One assumes he can not write in English.
    Did you know that the PF manifesto is a UNIP cut and paste as none of them could produce one. This time around Zambian backed the wrong tree and are going to pay for it

    • @MARY

      There is a whole industry in cyberspace and local media advising your beloved president how to run Zambia. Clearly he cannot read or maybe he is too busy redrawing boundaries of districts and provinces to care. A man of useless action, indeed. He should have had an idea why he wantewd to go to State House, not just to wait for other people to give him good ideas. Other political parties are there to grab power from the incumbent and wait for 2016 when Sata will get his arse kicked.

He’s just ruled for less than a year and cockroaches are saying he has failed.it;s like a teacher has only only checked 5/100 questions of your exam and tells you that you have failed.would you agree with such a foolish teacher?this is what *****s here are saying.we all need the economy to develop, we all need jobs for our youths but lets give our PRESIDENT time.He’s not GOD to perform miracles.this is politics and that’s how its done.am not pf neither did i vote for SATA but i do understand what it is to be in that position.thank you

  12. We knew there was nothing to offer the zambian populace in terms of leadership and his campaign gave us clues.Sata built his electoral platform on painting RB as a foreigner,that there were Zim police brought to zed and other outrageous outbursts.He just wanted to be president even if he came with no ideas.Compare that to Obama who campained on ending wars,fixing the economy and dealing with healthcare.Sata is much like a salaula dealer who thinks he can run a complex department store at the mall.

    • Problem is Zambian voters do not vote based on issues, like they do in developed countries. Sometimes, quality of leaders is a reflection of quality of voters. It may be so often in Zambia.

  13. Where were people’s priorities placed when they voted for Sata? Surely, it was just desperation and now we are paying for our costly decisions! And to those that oppose to people criticising the government on certain decisions, there is such a thing as ‘constructive criticism’. Only a true leader, who understands that he was put in office by people and therefore he has to serve them, accepts criticism and works to improve on where he has gone wrong.

  14. Starting from KK, with Levy being the only exception, we ought to be worried about the gradual decline, absence, or insufficiency of leadership in Zambia. Until we start to accept the fact that our current short supply of quality leadership has to do most directly with the absence of consensus on national purpose, we are going nowhere as a nation. Sloganeering “One Zambia One Nation”, “Unitary State”, “patriotism” or scare mongering tactics such as the threat of “treason” etc will not save this country from imploding. Only time will tell, watch this space.

  15. How do you expect miracles from a cobra. More than 40 years of dependency on tax payers and such an individual should then give you answers to the nation s challenges eg create employment. UNDER 5 makes a lot of sense. He only lacks political support & drive but has what we need as a nation Economic prowess

  16. #9 Norris, I concur with you. The man with always mocking and calling other people names. When he ascended to power many expected a lot from him. But what we have seen so far is not inspiring, if anything it is disheartening. There is no hope in hell for Zambia for the next four and half years.

    I totallly disagree with you on the issue that MCS had no plans for Zambia. I do not know where you have been. Sata had plans 1. about restoring the Barotseland agreement 2. Shaping the economy within 90 days 3. Cleaning the urban streets within 90 days 4. More money in people’s pockets within 90 days. 4. Re-introducing windfall taxes within 90 days 5. Fixing Chinese investments within 90 days 6. Reversing Zamtel and Zanaco sales within 90 days. What more promises do you want, Enka?

  21. Zambians are in the habit of voting for wrong people. Someone should do abit of research to find the root cause. Illiteracy also plays a very important part in the way Zambian populace voting especially those in big cities like Lusaka, Ndola and Kitwe. Zambians forget very quickly. A few years ago Sata was busy whiping people who did not vote for MMD in one of the compounds in Lusaka. You know the man is a bully and a dictator and to make matters worse, he is illiterate and the post of president is just beyond his comprehension.GOD is great because he is teaching us a lesson for future generations.

    • The Reason why Zambians keep voting for the wrong people is that they vote with their Tribes and not with their heads. Try something other than a Bemba if you want progress in Zambia.

  22. DR Muteas is right  many zambians thought because Sata brrageed about his experience in government. he was surrely going to turn around the country. but now it is clear that the man is lost. He is know going back to MMD type of ministries. you see kaunda at one point warned zambians, this was again brought up by chiluba………

  23. Yes # 14 i also think that an under 5 is better than a 40 years man experience in eating tax payer’s money. The man (Sata) is indeed a visionless leader, no developmental program for our mighty nation, that is why he only owns 7 guns. No economical forsight & an inmbalancement to mother. Under 5 we are behind you come 2016.

  27. This administration has been in perpetual motion from the time they came into power. The ministers have never settled down to be functional because of changes that have occur at the the drop of a hat! Sata must not take the Zambian people for granted nor underestimate their capacity to change direction if the situation so demands. They have done in the past and they will change this fractious regime that has thrived on being antagonistic or undemocratic principles at best. The die has been cast and the end is near!

  28. Ba Mutesa, an educated man like yourself should know better than to pass immediate judgement on a government ministerial change. Surely, the logical thing would be to wait for time to see whether the changes being made have borne fruit or not. You and General Miyanda, previously in the same party seem to be looking at any opportunity for cheap publicity. You have failed lamentably both of you politically and you seem to be clutching at any straws to stay aloft in the political game at any cost. You are, I believe, worthy more than you are projecting in the media at the moment, please be more objective in your criticism even if it hurts your financial sponsorship.

    • “Wait for time”, “give him time” – well, 6 months is enough time to know which way a govt is headed. And Sata’s govt is running round in circles. You just had to read Chikwanda’s complaints over the weekend about his fellow ministers to realise that the PF are clueless about their own policies. It is like a bus full of kaponyas giving directions about how to get home when nobody knows where home is. More time will just lead to collapse. Unfortunately, we have no choice until 2016.

Please be praying for Sata so that God can help him. Voters may not have known what they were doing when they put Sata up there. Just like Chelsea board.

  32. Ministry of Labour, Information, Broadcasting, Environment and Tourism, Ministry of Community Development, Mother and Child Health!!!!! What nonsense is this? Mutesa is right. You reduce the number of Ministries as a cost reduction measure but then you create more provinces, more districts…..The gains from reducing the number of Ministries is simply cancelled off by creating additional districts. Reminds me of an illiterate grade 4 who travels from Lusaka to Mongu to collect K100,000. To reach Mongu, the fool spends K300,000.

You’l just die of a stroke for nothing. Rant and rave as much as you want, guess what ? MCS will still be President when you wake up! Deal with it.. The majority of Zambians, the ones allowed to trade freely on the streets of Lusaka and CB will vote their man back cause they love him. I walked around town on Saturday. Along Cairo, Freedom way, ChaCha, Kwamwala. My heart was lifted to see growing witty unrestricted entrepreneurship. Everyone was alive trading trying to sell somemeting. I saw very fresh fruit and vegies along cha cha selling well. Commerce moves countries. All of u happing are out numbered.

  43. Sweeping UTH clean has nothing to do with running a country. some people are still waiting for a 90 day action which we now know will not come. Zambia will soon enter into self destruction mode unless the Kaponya electorate are taught the fact that talking and insults do not rule the country. The true signs are that the man(MCS) looks humbled by the challenges of Governance and has probably run of ideas already. The only unfortunate thing is that his deputy (Guy Scott) who should be planting maize in Mkushi does not yet know where he is. Clearly talking is easier than doing.? Fight corruption but also do developmental work. The 6.0 inflation is not the work of PF but that of the previous Govt’s foundation. Those who stole and are stealing now should meet the full wrath of the law.

    Please note that in exams,questions do not carry equal marks.For example,questions 1 to 5 might be carrying 60% of the total marks in that exam.It is therefore true that if you fail to answer the first five questions,the teacher will definitely be spot on when he tells you that you have failed.Sata’s main promises he made during his campaign was to restore the Barotse Agreement,create jobs and ensure that his neighbors ( people of Zambia ) do not go without food in 90 days of his coming to power. Has he achieved this as promised?By the way nobody forced him to give such ridiculous time frame.So do not blame those who are reminding him about his FAKE promises.

Obama said he will pull out of Iraq. He has done it. He keeps being reminded about all the promises he made. Like the say you can take a village from the village but you can not take the village out of him. This man thought he was heading a village … this is a country bwana.

Maybe this explains why he could not go further than Sub B at school his performance must have been very bad, he used to get 1 out 10 and ended up a Cop, platform sweeper, yet Zambians regarded him as presidential material.

I feel for him, as he will not realize soon that people are campaigning as it will be 2015. think of it this way, next year we shall all be talking African Cup of nations, then World Cup. Ba Sata and PF supporters pls do not fail to listen and act now before your own Dochi Kubeba turns around, for sure in your case you shall be told.

Look at how his cabinet is behaving like pigs which can eat anything they see. Try and error mettod has failed. Grade 7 failure from Chilonga Seminary is sweating blood. His mission was not o serve the people but only to confuse them and bring disunity while he waits for a prsidential burrial.

He had no idea who would be in his cabinet because the party was his alone. NO PARTY CARDS!!!! The strategy was to destroy the opposition and rule as a sole candidate or dictator. Just think of what happened at their conference — the first one after the party was in exisistence for how long? It is good Mr Sata is in office, the Zambians are in civic education classes.

  57. Experience is the ability to learn lessons from past
    situations and apply them in a given context. Experience is not an obvious capability in a person! The question is; has Sata got the capacity to learn from his so-called past political and government experience? I dont think so!
    Can you imagine a president creating a ministry such as —– Ministry of Mines, Energy and Water Development, is this normal? Mines, Energy & Water are huge sectors and linchpins of the Zambian economy, how do you put them in one ministry? Zambia is really in a mess!

    Chikwanda : Finance minister 1970’s (known to be computer illiterate)
    Bob Sichinga : Self proclaimed Economic Consultant (fired several times for incompetency)
    Winter : Lawyer LCC (never won a case before)
    Kabwili : Luanshya Call Boy
    GBM : unknown education
    Shamenda : junior secondary school

You praised Sata and called him sarviour of Zambia- what a shame for you to hold that niew. Even villagers are wondering what Sata is up to. As for Maxwell, people can only comment positely when something positive is done, so far nothing about Sata except taking Zambia backwards. Comment positively and tell us what’s positive with PF govt.

A lot of people voted for sata that we all know has humble education and now we are busy castigating him, I think its not fair! what we need now to do is advise his men and probably blast them up- the likes of the Phiri, Sichinga and many more ‘educated’ guys in the system that they advise HE sata to act accordingly or they boycott so we can impeach the president and get someone of average education but intelligent like Lubinda to lead us and get somewhere.We need sanity now! Insulting him won’t get us anywhere. All those that are insulting the president goes to show how simple minded they are. Let’s get educationally organised. Accept defeat lest we forge ahead. Insults or hatred wont help us. OWN UP GUYS!

  64. Criticising leaders is the order of the day in Zambia, one wonders if the entire population is on the opposition side. We need brains of wisdom to advice the president, but unfortunately none and it makes me wonder if the entire country has no wise people. It is easy to criticize that to give advice and we can see this in Dr. Mutesa who we think is educated and should know how to constructively critisize the President. While I can partially agree with what he is saying, he should critisize with the intention of bringing a solution to the table. From a person of his caliber, I expected him to bring a solution to this constant change of ministries.

  65. During the rule of late Mwanawasa Zambians never criticised his policies because they made a lot of sense and growth was seen and fighting corruption was positive and it began with state house itself with late Chiluba to account for corruption activities while head of state. Economic growth was registered and positive work attitude in govt began to be noticed unlike in Sata’s govt. Sata is the only one who criticised late Mwanawasa because of the alledged family tree concoction, propagated by M C Sata. Today PF cadres are pleading more time, Sata is not tribal and hasn’t got any family tree. My way, this liar has appointed all his relatives and others are co-head of state with him. What a shame.

  66. Mary #11, you are being simplistic and out of context. You cant compare national leadership and politics to a school exam. The politics and national leadership affect the lives of people. And secondly, the damage that bad or incompetent leaders takes ages to repair. That is why commonsense demands that once you begin to notice indicators of extreme poor leadership in a leader, such as we are beginning to see in Sata, alarms should be sounded. Its a pity that many people in Zambia are now complaining against Sata`s poor leadership style—and yet Zambian people were warned by those that worked closely with Sata including —Kaunda, Chiluba etc.

  68. @Mary, Clive Chanda, Maxwell, Italian Bunga Bunga. You guys I really don’t know which planet you live on.Our President had being bragging that he had the all the experience to run the country. How long long are you folks going to realize that the man has no clue where governance is concerned. to make matters worse he is surrounded by mostly kaponyaz ofcourse with the exception of Alexander Chikwanda who has a sound track record. Zambian will learn a bitter lesson for the ‘mistake’ they made. The writing is on the wall.

  70. If after 10 years in opposition Sata has no idea where to place his cadres in government, do you think he has any idea what to do with the country for the next 5? We are clearly in a stewing pot of sh!t!

  72. Experience in tribalism and coruption is no experience at all. Sata is not experienced. Kaunda and Chiluba told the zambians what Sata is capable of doing: NOTHING. But zambians did not get the message because they did not like the messengers. Elo lwanya.

  75. Simple advice: 1.Take 50 Zambian experts in the diaspora
    from education, health, finance, agriculture, construction, IT, engineering….!
    Better still those who have published books and international papers in their fields, while others were shouting slogans and take them into Zambia. 2. Take 25 local experts and put these two groups together to evaluate Zambian programmes. Listen to their advice after 30 days of studying programmes and projects in Zed.This Zedian thing of pakamwa (mouth) should stop. It will be a worthwhile investment, trust me!!!
