President Edgar Lungu has has nominated former Barclays Bank Managing Director Mrs. Margaret Mwanakatwe as a Member of Parliament and subsequently appointed her Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry.

President Lungu has also nominated His Worship, the Mayor of Lusaka, Mr. Mulenga Sata, as Member of Parliament and appointed him Deputy Minister at State House.

This is contained in a media statement released by his special assistant for Press and Public relations Amos Chanda today. The appointments are with immediate effect.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe has an illustrious career in the banking sector both at home and abroad. She has served as managing director for Barclays Bank-Ghana and as United Bank Africa Director for Business Development among others. The President says he will appoint as many women as possible to senior positions in a bid to make gender equity a reality in Zambia.

President Lungu has also appointed Mr. Boniface Chimbwali as Permanent Secretary for Luapula Province. In a pre-appointment brief, the President urged Mr Chimbwali to quickly accelerate the delivery of services to the people because the Patriotic Front Government owes the people of Luapula a lot.

“For the people I know personally I have a strong message that I will not hesitate to remove you from office for non-performance or mal-practice. We want you to go and sail the boat and rock it. People have given us unwavering support and we owe them delivery,” President Lungu said.

Meanwhile, the President has appointed Registrar of Societies, Mr Kakoma Kanganja to the position of Deputy Inspector-General of Police taking over from Dr Solomon Jere whose appointment has been terminated. Dr. Jere will be re-deployed into the Foreign Service. The Head of State has also terminated the appointment of Ms. Brenda Muntemba Sichilemba as Commissioner of Police and re-deployed her into the Foreign Service.

The President has transferred North-Western Province Commissioner Mr. Eugene Sibote to Eastern Province swapping with Ms. Grace Chipalila while Police Commissioner for Western Province Lombe Kamukoshi swaps with Central Province Commissioner Stanwell Lungu.

The President has promoted North-Western Province Deputy Commissioner Auxensio Daka to Commissioner for Muchinga Province and transferred Mr Bonnie Kapeso to Southern Province in the same capacity.

The President has terminated the contract of Commissioner of Police for Lusaka Province Remmy Kajoba and replaced her with Mrs Charity Katanga who moves from Northern Province in the same capacity. Commissioner of Police in-charge of operations at Service Headquarters, Mr. Fanwell Siandege has been sent on leave pending the expiry of his contract on 15th February 2015.

The President has informed the Inspector general of Police Mrs Stella Libongani of these changes, which take effect immediately. The President spent most of the morning meeting all the affected individuals and calling those from outside Lusaka to inform them of his decisions.

  1. Why does the [email protected]#K state house need a deputy minister? Please save us that crap and make meaningful appointments. Again, Lungu missed a great opportunity to nominate people from other regions of the country. Common, is Mulenga the most qualified individual to be given such a position?

    • Which region? I can see people from other regions. His mistake is he has not appointed someone from South Province. If that is the point being communicated here it is valid because he performed badly in that region and needs to embrace every one.

    • Lungu is afraid to crack the whip and complete the cabinet appointments why?.

      Ayopa chaani mambala? He has the power to appoint those in MMD why poaching from UPND?

      Does it mean that only UPND has men and women of substance to join PF ‘s reckless government or what.

      Only poor and hunger stricken UPND MPs who can not survive without government handouts can accept to be co-opted into PF’s mess.

      Anyway clever ones will serve now until July next year when they will resign and ditch PF.

      Lungu is 120% Mugabe’s proxy via RB.

    • I can only comment on one or two of the above appointments and disappointments.
      1. Jere is good ridance as he was not fit for purpose with all the excuses he accorded to violence and political favourtism. Sad thing is that he continues to live on the public purse regardless.
      2. Mulenga Sata is a sad appointment as there is noting to this guy other than the name. I cant stomach how he can be propelled to a ministerial role for?? Nothing really.
      3. Charity Katanga and Stella Libongani should have been dropped. Their names are synonymous with the “PF Police Force” as opposed to Zambia Police Service which we desperately need.
      I do not know much about the rest and therefore reserve comment except to say, I wish it is on merit that they have been appointed.

    • Was it not under Margaret Mwanakatwe’s reign that Barclays bank sold off some of it’s branches and within a year or two they realised the mistake they had made only to come back with makeshift ‘tuntemba’ branches? I hope she won’t make experiments which will be fatal to our economy. Wishing her all the best.

    • If I’m not mistaken, Lungu and Mulenga’s mothers are sisters or cousins… So why is anyone surprised that he would want his cousin close by him at State House? In short, make Inonge Wina a ceremonial Veep, while Mulenga does the substantive work. After 2016 when Inonge (hopefully) delivers the Western vote, fire her and make Mulenga VP. Stage is set, the players are ready! Game on!!!

    • Why from police force to foreign service? Can we have career diplomats please? In the past diplomats went for debriefing before leaving for their post. If it was a high commissioner the spouse also went for lessons on how to behave. We have mediocrity in the embassies now due to lack of training.

    • I can bet that there is nothing Lungu is going to do to the Post. During campaigns, he was just breathing hot air. The reality on the ground is different. The Post has already showered him with praises and he has forgotten what he said. But we need our K14 billion kwacha. The Post must also pay the tax. Here is where we’re going to judge whether Lungu meant what he said or not. If indeed he stands with the people, he will not go against his word. We are waiting and watching as things unfold.

      Mulenga Sata shunted to state house partly to please Sata but in reality to block him from organising councillors as a mayor he has power to influence councillors for 2016 presidential bid and being trashed to statehouse he can be monitored in his day to day activities

  3. For the first time am getting to like the appointments that HE ECL is putting in place to ran his government effectively. Without being partisan, i find the recent appointments as a good indication of a good government in place.
    Hope that as he completes his working team, he will be mindful that meritorious appointments are all that matters in a good management programme, this includes running of government.
    He must be mindful that government management must balance social economic and political demands.

    • Planso, mukwasu, start thinking rationally and critically! What makes Tongas victims in tribalism? Just because their prefered candidate, chosen freely by them doesn’t make it into state house doesn’t make them victims. This kind of hallucinative analysis is extremely dangerous and should not be condoned by all right thinking people. Their are no victim s of tribalism in Zambia except a few wrong thinking scondrels like Jane Mulenga and her/his friends whi are peddling hatred on social media. In the big scheme of things, Tongas are working in government departments, the corporate world, in banks, shops, industries, farms and factories and they are fairly competing with other Zambians for positions.

  14. The persistent mentioning of tribalism and regionalisation is boring. This is the theory behind the people advocating tribalism or racism:
    1. They lack maturity and are either threatened by the other individual’s perceived ability to progress in life.
    2.Lack of intelligence- inability to form arguments coherently or express themselves so that they can be heard-this inadvertently leads to some one using insults or derogatory words against the other tribe.
    3.Lack of ability to articulate the thoughts in one’s brain- again similar to above,the person can’t process their God given intelligence,they become angry and take their frustration on other tribes.
    For those of you who are tribalists/racists, check which category you belong to.

If he wants to change everyone then we should as well have voted for the opposition UPND. Just imagine within the same political party he decides to make such changes! One thing is very clear, Edgar Lungu is a liar. He promised people that they were going to keep their jobs but he has fired them after campaigning for him. Given Lubinda campaigned better than Lungu, he talked more sensible things during campaigns than Lungu and should have been the first to be rewarded. Chikwanda has been retained becUse during campaigns money was being released to finance Lungu’s tours without Guy Scott knowing. Eastern province has taken over PF.

  33. The new minister of commence is a cousin to Mrs Chikwanda. She is from Malawi and one wonders why EL has appointed her. She is also a long time girlfriend to RB. When she was in Ghana RB immediately upon becoming president openned a zambian embassy and visited Ghana. RB and Chikwanda are the ones ruling now

    • No vision Lungu be careful of your appointments you are making. Remember we voted for you, we can vote you out, especially we can see that Lupiya is the one who is ruling here. We did not want him we gave you a chance knowing very well that you did not have a vision. Be warned not to be used as a stooge to Banda.

  34. Hmmmmm,Dudu Mhango,long time babe of Lupiya just when she was a young beautiful girl at UNZA.Lupiya was then Forein Affairs Minister.Dudu would be flown to UK for shopping,classic case of Sugar Daddy.she lived in comfort at UNZA.this relationship hurt late Lupiya’s wife,the graceful,beautiful Hope Makulu Banda.

    Yes,Margaret Dudu Mhango Mwanakatwe is intelligent but she also knows how to use her beauty .Sugar Dad Lupiya may have a hand.

  35. Institutional heads in the civil service should be swapped or cleaned especially in ministry of agriculture and livestock, ministry of local government and housing and health.

  36. Political appeasement at the expense of political support will be disastrous for President Chagwa. He must come to terms that keeping his colleagues
    the former ministers who supported him during the elections guessing weather they will be re-appointed will prove disastrous. He even takes leave without constituting a full cabinet. This is betrayal of the highest order. An appointment like this will not earn any political support. The madam must have been appointed as advisor to the president. She is not a politician.

  38. Inclusion of women in the corridors of power is an excellent move. From Ministries to Police service et.al. I am glad some recycled politicians have been excluded with the exception of ABC…we all aware that nepotism is at play here & will never die in Africa!!
    Mulena’s appointment on the other hand is welcomed with mixed feelings…great infusion for the younger Gen to be involved in front line politics but how can he cope with the many portfolios under his belt? Its simply an elevation to groom him for MP or future Presido…(SATA Legacy to prevail) Watch this space!!

  39. …..why piecemeal appointments….??…just give us the whole bouquet all at once man…making people become anxious for nothing…..I’m just hoping this is not one of the legacy he has adopted of appointments and swearing in every other day for three year running….and I hope that shunning of the presidential aspirant’s debate is not another sign of starving us with press conferences….anyway signs are already there when he avoided the press on his return from AU gathering…..

    • @Mwawakwitu….
      I guess you are in your early Twenties……the only cabinet you have witnessed being constituted in your adulthood is that of MCS…..
      …usually a ‘new’ president announces a ‘new’ cabinet almost all at once except may be for 1 or 2 posts…..ask those who were adults during the KK, FTJ, LPM era…
      ….all the 11 presidential aspirants including Mulyokela took note of who they wanted to work with when they were going round campaigning….it was matter of giving himself 3 to 4 days to come up with atleast 90% of the list..
      …not such kind of appointments as if it is a re-shuffle….VP today. two ministers tomorrow, even appointing deputies before ‘full’ ministers……after that he can take his time on appointing Diplomats and heads of govt wings, security etc..

  46. #33 the Dark Lord, Chikwanda is okay for the job provided he works with intelligent ministers who can guide him. In the last cabinet the ministers did not whether they were coming or going, leaving Chikwanda to poke his nose into areas where he had little or no expert knowledge. Just take for example the Mines & Energy portfolio, minister blank and Chikwanda fills the gap created with his pretence to experience and expertise. The likes of Margaret can now advise ba Mudala ba Chikwanda to do the right things.

  48. We warned you, E C Lungu and Mulenga Sata are brothers from one maternal lineage. However, monkeys are under ‘Donchi Kubeba’ in this PF/MMD RB led government. As they would say ‘Baikata panshi’ all is gone with Sata. Good riddance, lets hear how they will react.
    Their reaction will define PF in 2016 elections.

  51. At the rate Lungu is going its becoming clear that the government should prepare funds for the importation of maize for the 2016 fiscal year. We all know the state of agriculture in our country and you would think he would be taking the plight of our farmers and food security more seriously and would have appointed a credible and competent minister of agriculture by now. Truth be said if anyone in the PF can be effective at being minister of agriculture I would propose Guy Scott.
