    • The struggle to liberate North Western Rhodesia has just started. No amount of appointments which we saw since 50 years ago will stop that.

    • Abysmal appointment.

      She should have remained in her role. Too predictable. Should have kept Scott in the same position, it would have healed many soles.

      Zambians are dull

      Thanks

    • Congratulations to Madam Inonge, she betrayed her people for that post so she deserves it.

      OMG Luo jilted. She really must be fuming where ever she is.

      Lungu should drop Luo for antagonising bashilubemba by denying Sosala to be the Chitimukulu.

      I know Chrstabel Ngimbu will get some thin under the guise of tribal balancing.

      Lungu should fire Kambwili and his careless mouth.

      Nikosa job Lungu. What has happened to the list he prepared earlier. Has it been rejected by the bemba clique or the RB ‘s Umhozi kumawa group.

      RDA must move out of state house and a new board appointed, National wide broadcasting licences to be issued , freedom of information bill to passed, wage freeze stopped , bursaries to be given to all who deserve if he wants some of us to go ease on him.

    • Chikwanda should borrow more money first and show Lungu where the money is before moving him to statehouse as special advisor.

      This will happen after a month or two.

      Control the money and food then you control the people.

      Finance and BOZ will definitely go to RB ‘s Umhozi waku mawa no matter what.

      Dora is taking information ministry.

      Kambwili must go no matter what.

    • Honestly speaking, Dr Scott deserves this! He betrayed Zambia when he chose to side with thugs. What was he thinking? That Mr Lungu would keep him with the way he dribbled all his opponents? Of course Inonge Wina deserves this position for all the dirty work she did by breaking the constitutional laws in order to make Mr Lungu win the PF candidacy, and eventually cheating his (Lungu) way to State House. What a failed state Zambia is.

      Worse times are definitely coming to Zambia since this cabinet is made up of all the corrupt people that defied the law of the land.

    • Removing Guy Scott as Vice president and Daniel Munkombwe as southern province minister is rather vindictive. Despite all the differences with Guy Scott,he did swallow his pride and campaign for EL. Munkombwe should have been kept to keepunity with the tongas and to perhaps to rub it in their faces that EL is above pettiness-alas that didn’t happen

    • @Wanzelu,
      I know Lungu has invited opposition parties to come to the table and in order to work together in pulling Zambia in the right direction. But he did not mean that you start bringing unrealistic UPND day dreams to the table.
      Financial responsibility and discipline is the backborne for national development and I am sure the leadership qualities that Edgar Lungu has exhibited in the last 6 months can only mean that he will move RDA out of statehouse and will do the “right thing”.
      Those issues of lifting wage freeze etc should be left to the national financial position to determine. As we all know the finances are in no position to support lifting the wage freeze.

    • I it’s all because of our faulty constitution. Guy Scot deserved to be President up to 2016. Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama had serious differences before the democractic party elections. Obama went on to appoint Hillary as Secretary of. State, the third highest position in the Government. Leaving Scot out of government is a sign of cowardice through vengeance. I am sure the westerners are wondering what Scot is doing trying to work with people who have chosen to live in perpetual poverty save for a few that fight with Pangas just to serve a few years in government, steal a few millions dollars, use it all on court cases and live in poverty ever after.

    • I suppose congratulations are in order for Ms Wina. In as much as she’s the first female appointee in that position, I don’t think she will bring any value to Edgar ‘s cause. I understand that when she was Gender minister, she let down a lot of women. She wouldn’t support or endorse their programs or cause. If you ask me I think she’s a weak and doesn’t stand for a thing. I think she will lose her parliamentary seat in 2016.

    • Indeed, what happened to the fake opinion poll of 80% HH and 20% EL? It is utter stupidity to believe that a candidate built through social media hype can win in Zambia. The Dean Mungomba debacle is still there for so called Hakaivotela Heka to learn from, but he wont, hes too arrogant for such things. RESULT? he will continue to inflate his ego, and as all paranoids continue to believe he is living in state house running his animal farm for cattle, chickens, goats and pigs as the country Zambia!!!!!!!!!!!! shemuna bane, shemu!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kambwili cannot be kept out for the simple reason that he has a major grassroot following and is a serious mobilizer, qualities which cannot be overlooked in politics. In short, he is bringing a lot to the table in the form of votes and that’s what wins elections. He is not the most refined man and I would normally side with you on this BUT he has grassroots appeal and has been using it effectively. I noticed that he was one of the few cabinet ministers who did not go along with passing a no-confidence vote in Guy Scott because he understood it to be an exercise in futility, the man comes across as uncouth, but he knows how to play the political game and he adjusts quickly to fight the what is best for the party above individual needs. It would be diffcult for EL to overlook this.

  23. Compliment or criticise, appointing authority is one & only Edgar Lungu. Let us support the appointments until the appointed fail. PF needs to grow, throw away the thuggery & violence. What also needs to happen is drop all the cadre appointments in various positions such as DC, PS & heading parastatals. Time to move Zambia forward. Oh & while you are at it, tell us where you are putting RB?

  24. President EL is following the foot steps of predecessor MC. By appoint Inonge Wina, EL is making sure that in this short-term, no one powerful in PF should get closer to him and try to usurp his power at the end of his term. So Inonge seems royal and can’t pull such a move. This is what Mugabe did also. Having a woman as vice ensure minimum wrangles or conflicts between the two. Moreover, women are not considered as a great threat in politics pa Zed. However, EL should consider taking Guy Scott to Min. of Mines to deal with these vulture investors squarely. Zed badly need a fare deal from the mineral proceeds. Good luck EL!

    Well deserved, well deserved, well deserved.
    very earnest, mature and realistic appointment .
    Inonge is an intelligent, sober and mature leader who clearly showed that she opted for fairness in leadership and that she aimed at giving people the leadership they wanted by way of majority wish, than politics of dribbling.
    She showed that she was a woman of unit and oneness, who desired to mediate and achieved the will of the majority than politics of ‘injuka’ we were beginning to see in the intra-PF moves.
    WOMAN, YOU ARE A MOTHER INNDEED,
    I SALUTE YOU – You deserve to be the first Zambian woman Vice President.
    A mark in the Zambian history has be made. I admire you level headedness, and the natural intelligence you possess.

  31. Madam Wina is actually quite educated even though she has behaved like a cadre & blind person. She has been appointed because she has no base is not a threat to EL presidency just like Sata appointed Scott. It is also an attempt to increase the PF performance in Barotseland in 2016 but THIS Inonge cannot deliver those votes unfortunately. Congratulations to her though, we are asked her how a normal person can support a mad man first & then how she chose to go all out for EL. Well in both cases she was promised the vice presidency, that’s why, not because of a principled belief but self preservation and self glorification. Congratulations to her, may she prove people wrong & God bless Zambia!

    Inonge Mutukwa Wina, born April 2, 1941, is the current Vice President of the Republic of Zambia. She is the first female to hold the position making her the highest ranking female in the history of Zambia.

    Education
    Wina attended primary school in Senanga, at the then Barotse National School—now Kambule Secondary School—in Mongu.

    She eventually completed her high school education at Santa Monica Hight School in Los Angeles, Carlifornia.

    She obtained a diploma in social works at Santa Monica City College.

    She also read for a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Zambia when it was first opened.

  36. Congratulations Ms Wina on being the first female VP. Like others I doubt whether you will bring much value to PF especially that you did not help Edgar in Nalolo, but obviously appointed for three reasons:
    1. Reward for standing with Edgar and keeping PF together.
    2. Strategy to appeal to female voters – see what Nawakwi got and might be a force in next elections
    3. Strategy to appeal to western vote which PF lost to UPND

  37. Frankly I expected Inonge Wina at her age to retire from politics especially after her paty’s babylon and violence since 2011. Lungu is just using her to appease Barotseland.

  38. In team HEEL there’s no portfolio for inconsequential functions as the case was in the late President Sata’s administration. Guy Scott is an integral part of the cartel that held Sata hostage and moreover misled him on a number of national issues.
    What HEEL requires is an assembly of individuals that are going to pull in one direction understanding that they don’t have the luxury of time.
    Scott must just be maintained as an elder of the party and bring back technocrats like Amb. BSK Chiti, Bwalya Ngandu and many others at the disdisposal of PF in the mainstream social, political and economical activities

  39. Well the Nkoyas of Western Province have always maintained the policy of One Zambia One Nation. I am sure the Barotse separatists are now happy that one of their own has the VP position.

    Its good for our young democracy for people to feel included in government.

    I just hope that my Nkoya relatives will also be included in this new but shory government so that we can truly celebrate the One Zambia One Nation slogan.

    One may urgue that there should be vindictiveness at the same time this falls under the realm of politics with obviously it’s nature it can’t be business as usual. Politics is about strategic alliances and associations.
    On the balance of play, HH. Wina is by all fronts a better choice.

  41. @Wanzelu&UPND

    I am terribly disappointed in UPND. Something seems to have snapped in your writing. You are not sounding erudite but rather like a little boy in the playground making empty threats.

    It seems to me that you have gone too far with this HH and your outlook on life has become negative if he loses an election.

    HH WON more ground than ever before…..than is ever possible to a new party entrant. UPND should be celebrating, but instead you are engaging in bitterness and nasty threats. This is NOT normal.

    President Lungu has an outlook that is all encompassing, and inclusive to every Zambian.

    May God Bless Our Fabulous and Wonderful President.
    Peace, Love and Shalom to All Zambians
    Let NO enemy Prosper

    • I quoted Oscar Wilde, yesterday to someone that ‘A Cynic is someone who knows the price of everything but NOT the value.’

      That is very apt for the UPND attitude at this time.

      You do not understand what you have gained, that’s the value for UPND in this election. You fought well AND NOW NEED TO STOP, THE HATE.

      You climbed to be a very credible opposition party, second place. MMD is no longer in second place. WOW IF I WAS UPND, I’d be dancing right now! After all this is a 1.9 approx. term! Why spend so much aggro!

      It’s clear you want to destabilise Zambia, but I promise you a lot of Zambians who voted for HH will not do so in future. These elections were fair and praised by ALL Independent Observers. Stop showing yourselves up and elect a new Leader.

    Thank you, Your Excellency President Lungu. It is fitting that you made Hon. Wina your Vice President. She single handedly sailed that boat in PF’s time of trouble when great Sata was out of reach to pull the party together. This is fitting. What a great giant of a woman. We ululate her and the appoint by our Wise Commander!

    WE ARE GLAD!

    God Bless Our President
    God Bless Our Vice President
    God Bless Zambia and ALL Zambians
    LOVE, Peace and Shalom

  45. This is very f00lish article. Bembas are not tribal. Why did they fail to vote for their own Mumba for the MMD.

    This is all F00lish articulation my dear.

    Just point to the tribal Tongas who can cause genocide once elected to state house as their brains are clogged with tribe and hatred for other tribes.

    We made a very big mistake in western province to vote for their tonga HH.

    Wait for 2016 Elections.

  46. No matter what whether educated or not,mama inonge deserves it ,she is not tribalistic like the so called heavily educated people.
    We need every one in this struggle to put things right for our children.For me ,i feel we have collegues in the opposition who are willing to contribute to national development.
    Congratulations Kafwaya for accepting the appointment.

  47. Lungu should have kept Guy Scott as his VEEP. I am disappointed. Am PF but don’t support EL on this appointment. This is a clear sign of bitterness and unforgiving spirit. This could have healed soles both in PF and nation

  48. Thank you President Lungu! I hope this will teach tribalists to integrate like most of us! Now HH should cry because this now is “stealing elections from him” not that foolishness he was spewing before with his Galu watchers in Zambia backers!

  49. Inonge thinks outside the box, unlike many colleagues from the West and South. If many could be like her and the Winas, Zambia would have continued in KK’s One Zambia One Nation mantra! This is a great appointment. Dr. Scott was the undoing of himself. In spite of numerous chances for him to see reality he stubbornly refused to bend. I feel bad for him even though I had wanted him to be around.

    • And what is the meaning of this bull.shite of yours? We are supposed to live in a democracy. Why should we only support parties headed by Bembas or Easterners?

  50. Congratulations Inonge and thank you EL. Appointing Inonge Wina Vice-President is not only good internal PF politics, but also good ethinic and gender balancing in national governance. It is impossible for any President to keep a person in Cabinet who treats a cabinet colleage the way Scott treated EL following Sata,s death. Any politically mature person knows that many senior PF officials do not trust Scott anymore. It is very doubtful that he will last long in PF. He has few friends.

    I am very encouraged by EL,s confidence, humility and forthrightness demonstrated this morning. I believe now Zambia has a good President, AND also a good Vice-President. Just wait and see.

  51. Really I just wanted to add that Hon Wina is sooooooooo indefatigably Zambian isn’t she? It couldn’t have gone to a better person.

    In attire, conduct and has displayed her dedication to serving Zambia. We have yet to hear the so calked Women Groups congratulate this appointment. I am waiting for reactions from Nawakwi and some NGOs groups.

    Fantastic!

    This has made a big dent in the equalities fight.

  52. Obviously this is a ‘reward’ appointment for putting her neck on the line during the PF internal power struggles. She fraudulently declared Lungu the duly elected nominee, blindsiding everyone (very shrouded).

    As for appeasing the Lozis, nope it won’t work out. The Winas are known as traitors and snakes who have worked their entire political lives against the interests of Barotseland. Especially the younger brother Sikota Wina, it’s as if he has Bemba ‘munyukunyuku’ and ‘liability’ blood running in his blood veins. The Winas have allegedly always worked with and for the Bembas.

    Anyway congratulations to her though. Looking at the depth of talent on the PF lineup, she’s probably the most capable and deserving. But this is a political appointment.

  53. Here is waiting for what Lungu will do with the infamous ‘Cartel’ that allegedly took Sata hostage. Will he go for them: Dropping Mutembo from his DPP position and asking Mmembe to pay back what he owes the tax payer? To me this will be one of the defining legacy of the Lungu presidency. Mmembe tried to make peace with him after learning in the last moments that he was headed for victory. Grow some Lungu and get that money from Mmembe.

  55. What an extraordinarily person, Mama Inonge Wina! When most major leaders had abandoned Edgar Lungu, jostling for the PF party pesidency she took great risks on principle to ensure that Lungu got what was rightfully his, the party presidency. Congrtulations, Mama Wina! You deserve that position.

  56. This is to officially announce that let be written in the annals of history that today Jan 26, 2015 HH will no longer be a factor in future presidential elections! He was officially “buried” at Chingwere cemetery! Next to him was Dr. Canasius Banda! Watch this space! Galu watchers in Zambia will awake to a very rude shock!

  58. keeping GUY would have been a good thing. appointing INONGE is also good considering the illegal works she did,but she is too soft for that position debating with bitter UPND in parliament? going round country to campaign for Lungu in 2016 its a very big doubt. its suicide mission for Lungu. its like he only targeted positions where he had interest, that is vegency

  59. This woman should have stayed in her position. What does she know concerning discussion of foreign policy. She is almost 80yrs old. Scott should have remained at that position and continue to finish the term and give advise to EL.
