The President said he was confident that the three deputy ministers will satisfactorily discharge the functions of their respective offices both to his satisfaction and that of the Zambian people.

“As you execute your functions;be reminded that our people are the most important resource. Therefore, as leaders we should all strive and commit to meeting their essential needs, expanding the economy and creating jobs, curbing crime and corruption, and eventually transforming the state with fulfillment,” President Sata said.

“Transparency, national unity, equality before the law and placing the interests of the masses in the forefront should be our guiding principle if we are to achieve the total transformation of the country we fervently desire. I urge you all to work towards the attainment of these noble objectives.”

  1. Kasauntu! What an insult to my people! Please reshuffle this exam rigger to some other province soon. There are sooooo many intelligent Zambians around why choose this lumpen as a minister.No wonder we are so behind.

    • Eyi mujina kasauntu kanka? You pipo in NWP wanted your very own and since you have a listening president here you are….

    • Like it or not the man is your minister. Besides he is the only son of the soil in NWP belonging to the ruling party. You wan someone more “inteligent:” than Masumba, go and stand as MP win then become minister other wise funga chinwa. What Kasautu? You are the one unakuhanjika kasautu man.

  2. Congratulations to Hon Masumba, he deserves it. Now please go an engineer the whole province to go PF. Make sure there is no trace of the enclave in the name of UPND. We will fund you heavily to ensure that the opposition is nowhere near that soon to be prosperous mine. Uproot the MMD and UPND where ever you smell or see them as that province you are now going to head is very strategic to the whole economic development of our country. Make sure you strengthen PF structures in all the opposition constituencies and make sure you frustrate all the efforts of opposition MPs! viva Sata, Viva PF

  3. We will be seeking for a meeting with President Sata very soon as we conclude talks with our members at the constituencies. Chiefs in southern province have asked us to work with the PF government because President Sata means well for Zambia. Congratulations Hon Masumba for being a man enough. For us the 14 UPND MPs, we are inspired by your move.

  4. Do these guys surely have enough time to investigate the needs of poeple, plan, analyze and finally implement thier strategies to alliviate poeverty at the rate they are transfered??

    I think iliko bad iyi. mmmmmm

    • i hear sata lost his dairy where he kept a record for reshuffles now it will be worse reshuffling you while still in transit to your new posting, some will never reach their offices until 2016.

  5. Masumba,the man of the moment. WP shall now be PF,no doubt!! Opposition mukose,Sata is a deadly political strategist. Watch the space.

  6. Chalo Bantu is not normal in his operation because he is so poor and Masumba is ejoying with his family alone..minus the majority PF who are still walloping in poverty.

  7. EVEN IF HE BECOME MINISTER OF NORTH WESTERN PROVINCE..THE PEOPLE THERE WILL STILL BE TERREBLE POVERTY THAN EVER BEFORE,,WORKING WITH THE OPPOSITION OR NOT STILL THE MAJORITY ZAMBIANN YOUTHS ARE NOT EMPLOYED

  8. EVEN IF HE BECOME MINISTER OF NORTH WESTERN PROVINCE..THE PEOPLE THERE WILL STILL BE TERRIBLE POVERTY THAN EVER BEFORE,,WORKING WITH THE OPPOSITION OR NOT STILL THE MAJORITY ZAMBIAN YOUTHS ARE NOT EMPLOYED.

  9. This guys will be enjoying alone leaving our children in shackles of poverty..Masumba the youth some money pls…learn to share Sir.

  10. Surely this circus can only be found in politics a Diploma holder for a minister? A Diploma is just pure Grade 12 work. And people still wonder why civil service does not perform its because of these Grade 7’s. Sata’s kicking of the bucket will bring sanity to Zambia.

    • am glad that this is your opinion sir because you are a very retrogressive man which society doesn’t need.it could be better if you jast disappeared from the face of zambia or earth as a whole.  

    • Am sure you are just another Grade 7 boot licking for a job in this PF soap opera of continuous confusion. instead of the president governing his still politicking, these no need to appoint boys like masumba who are always high on sex enhancers ( 7 hours) just to kill opposition in parliament and pretend to want to foster development.if sata brings sensible laws they will for sue be passed in parliament but as usual his up to no good like allocating money to first or second lady’s vacant office.

    • bongwe blind supporting will kill you. Am sure you are the types that supply their women to go dance for these politicians and hope the minister ends up with her at parliament motel so as to sustain your sorry boot-licking life. by the way sata and masumba will die before i disappear from your world of boot licking.

    • Concerned citizen. You are a fool who thinks progress is in your stupid degree from university of Lusaka or yunza whatever you call it. Believe it or not Masumba has more courage than you with your phd if you have any.

  11. This guys will be enjoying alone leaving our children in shackles of poverty..Hon. Masumba give the youth some money pls…learn to share Sir.

  12. No. 15 wake up. I WOULD RATHER HAVE WISDOM THAN A DEGREE. SOLOMON HAD WISDOM AND RULED THE NATION OF ISRAEL AND PEOPLE REJOICED. MASUMBA CONGRATS AND THUMBS UP TO MR. PRESIDENT. NO 15 YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS BEHIND.

    • Am wide awake the more reason am trying to wake you from your slumber.unfortunately masumba has neither of them a degree nor wisdom no wonder he ends up dancing with Congolese prostitutes. i won’t enter the solomon debate so masumba and sata are following solomon’s bad example of liking prostitutes and having children outside wedlock?? then we in for it..

  13. Ba Sata is taking our country in a wrong direction…ba MUDALA be at easy…we have enough MPS in PF ,,why bringing these tu dancers..its not fair mwandinii,…Iam now changing to H.H and UPND…

  14. # 17 Sir ..you are not a true Zambian,,pls our country is so poor because of you and you st micheal Sata..its you to wake up or else your children will ever suffer thru their life..wake you chi kolwe

  15. concernedcitizen #15 those are very old arguments. Why aren’t the degree holders getting elected? Are they even presenting themselves for elections I wonder? Lets be objective and look to more pragmatic discussions. Bringing someone’s station in his academic acquisitions is not necessarily relevant to the tasks at hand.

    • The most part of Zambia is filled with uneducated people ( illiterates). these type of people ba kaponya will never vote for anyone who speaks intellectual sense as they don’t get half of what the person is saying. Zambia is too divided on tribal lines hence one has to stand as MP in their own Province. Zambian politics don’t allow educated people to participate, for you to be president you have to form a party. My arguments will always hold water as long as we Zambians don’t change. Frankly speaking a Grade 7 or Diploma Holder is just asking too much from them as their thinking haven’t been exposed or challenges to different scenarios( some synapse in the brain are still closed)

  16. # 17 Sir ..you are not a true Zambian,,pls our country is so poor because of you and your st. micheal Sata..its you to wake up or else your relatives will ever suffer thru their life..wake up you chi kolwe

  17. # 20 is a big fool ,,he is black in brain..wake up from slamper…still have hang overs..PF IS CHEATING YOU AGAIN ,,AGAIN,,STAND UP ZAMBIANS

  18. Each time there is a reshuffle this statement comes but why change them if the can perform (The President said he was confident that the three deputy ministers will satisfactorily discharge the functions of their respective offices both to his satisfaction and that of the Zambian people)

  19. He looks arrogant and drunk in the photo.

    ….no doubt a perfect addition to Mr. Sata’s Cabinet.

  20. Namwala District Patriotic Front Chairman Felix Chibwe says that the ruling party in Namwala District is happy that the PF is gaining popularity in Provinces like North western Province as evidenced in the Mufumbwe by- elections.In an interview with ZANIS, Mr. Chibwe said that the people of southern Province should learn from the Mufumbwe bye elections that its time they started supporting the PF Government in order to enhance development in the Province.Mr Chibwe said that just after people heard that the PF won Mufumbwe he has been receiving calls from all the 14 wards of Namwala that people want to join the PF.

  21. Why this harping on a degree? Degree holders already have had their day (MMD). For 20 years they lorded it and fluffed in the corridors of power, with zero results. People are now experimenting with lowly or not too educated politicians. Who knows they just might pull it off! 

  22. Ma reshuffles every day forgetting to service Kaseba. No wonder a young vibrant and sharp shooting UTH medical doctor has been sampling the honey inside Kaseba’s groin, siring some babies in the process. Awa, kamaniti ya mulena mulimu kona bu Chimbwi No Plan bo! Si yo ozelela kwa mukunda ka doctor-nyana kona ka shungumana ku nyomwetisa musala sona kuyoli taa sali fa mezi a mancha! Butoto bwa ma Bembastanese!

  23. Awe apa peene, Mr. president naimwe….. what do you want to prove? It is just a sheer waste of time, continue hiring and firing and reshuffling by the time you realise time would have gone for your one term rule.

  24. I now doubt Ach Bishop Mpundu’s nieces are sired by Sata. Someone else is lurking in the background as their true father, not Sata. I challenge Sata to go for a partenity test to prove these are not Katele Kalumba or Machungwa’s surrogates.

  25. THIS TIME AROUND TO HAVE ECONOMIC FREEDOM ,WE NEED ECONOMIC MANAGERS…OUR CURRENT LEADERS IN GOVT ,HAVE FAILED ,,INDEED,,WE NEED PROPER LEADERS,,NOT BA SATA WHO IS VERY TRIBALIST ON EARTH

  26. THIS TIME AROUND WE NEED TO HAVE ECONOMIC FREEDOM ,WE NEED ECONOMIC MANAGERS…OUR CURRENT LEADERS IN GOVT ,HAVE FAILED ,,INDEED,,WE NEED PROPER LEADERS,,NOT BA SATA WHO IS VERY TRIBALIST ON EARTH

  27. SO ALL MMDS SUPPORTERS WILL BE GIVEN MORE MONEY IN THE POCKETS LEAVING PF SUPPOTERS WHALLOPING IN TERIABLE POVERTY.

  28. Sata is a very clever man in 2016 his going to u turn and blame the MMD MP’s for his failure to deliver on the promises of development and more jobs. wait and see when these opposition MP’s will be booted out before 2016. politicians surely have chicken memory and their love for power and money is unquenchable just like a puppy’s appetite which can eat to death so long these food on the plate.

  29. Lovely…atleast king cobra has fulfilled his campaign promise in Mufumbwe that he will appoint their own son(Masumba) as provincial minister if elected.

  30. SO ALL MMDS SUPPORTERS WILL BE GIVEN MORE MONEY IN THE POCKETS LEAVING PF SUPPOTERS WHALLOPING IN TERIABLE POVERTY…

  31. # 41 IS A GOOD DREAMER IN ZAMBIA….VIVA LIERS VIVA POVERTY,,,VIVA IGNORANCE…VIVA POOR LEADERSHIP FROM SATA AND PF ..

  32. 31 and 34 I am just wondering as too whether you were brought up in a stable home or you are just a lunatic, a psychological casualty  

  33. @Hi Mushota,
    What is happening to you there? It is very strange because you have not posted even a single word since last night. A vacuum exists and there is no one to fill this empty space, please find something to cheer yourself up so that we can interact as members of one family and a happy future married couple. Please do not have harbor these unjustified emotions and tantrums. You are a strong young woman and you always stand up even though you fall several times on your back. Please, kindly bounce back, face the usual challenges of life and ignore those who envy you. Note that you have come a long way to be challenged by simple challenges which are even not complicated. You have been to so many places which means that you are a global citizen. Bye my love.

  34. This is a big political strategic move for PF to move into N/Western province at the same time its a move to choke MMD and UPND politically. I wonder what is going through Dr Mumba’s head right now after hearing this development just few days after unnecessary by-election, he Mumba created.

  35. This is a good move Mr president!!! Congartes Masumba…….be a humble boy as u have been a along.MMD and UPND will be a story of the past in the next few yrs.

  36. The end of zambia starts with fools like this Masumba.When you’re ready to sell your principles for a ministerial position you don’t deserve to be called zambian.Sell this fool to Somali pirates.

  37. UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, maybe i should just go back to Zambia mwe, who knows you can end up being appointed first female president! LT what do you think?

  38. Enka Rasha : So we are fools we the one that voted for Masumba? Kanshi ganifyo lekeni ichipuba chibe minister wa ifwe fwefipuba

    • Don’t be too happy to embrace him.If he can betray the other side he can also betray you.Its like a guy who marries another man’s cheating wife thinking she can’t cheat on him also.

  39. Mujima @ 1
    Like it or not the man is your minister. Besides he is the only son of the soil in NWP belonging to the ruling party. You wan someone more “inteligent:” than Masumba, go and stand as MP win then become minister other wise funga chinwa. What Kasautu? You are the one unakuhanjika kasautu man.

  40. Traitor Mr Masumba.I feel like vomiting when i see traitors like you who have sold your soul to the devil PF party.You’ll get poetic justice coz you know karma ain’t no joke.May the ground you walk on swallow your black ass.

  41. At least there is a promise kept, during campaign the head of state promised that masumbawill be made minister so it is.The north westerners have decided by voting…wishing him Gods protection..
