    • Hahahaha, nice one- actually, Hapunda has a position in the party and he appears satisfied with that. Actually, Brian Hapunda is the only Tonga who does not vote for HH, or at least so he portrays in public!

    • This appointment is another victory for Zambia. It is above board considering that Lucky Mulusa has the intellectual and professional acumen critical to transforming Zambia. He was part of the Zambian brain-drain statistics we have long lost to the international market. South Africa had significantly benefited from his prowess. Its time to tap from a pool of our well qualified Zambians skilled in all domains. Injection of such brains at a high level will help give momentum to national development. In the absence of such intellectual and professional acumen in the technocrats, politics becomes circus of repetitive wastage and doom. Very strategic appointment. I pray the same drive and competency shown in SA will show up in his new role. I wish my brother good health and success.

    • Nope, that is not a job for Brian Hapunda, read the job description before you make useless comments. Edgar is building a team on merit.
      In any case why a tonga and not a kaonde, you tongas are so selfish, even nshima you will ask why it was not cooked by a tonga. Thank God the one percent made a huge difference!

    • Dear sir, how does this work, why pick an MP for this typical civil servant job. This is a new way of doing things, however, do take note that you have mixed civil service and politics, which can be costly. Wishing you all the best as you discharge your duty as head of state. By the way are you putting a MP on a civil servant pay roll?

  1. This is sharp young person who was wasting his time in politics. He needed to be of use within government and not in opposition. He was a senior fella at the Gauteng Treasury with 2 Masters degrees in Finance and will do well if he focuses on his job and not politicking.

    • Excellent appointment. Rounded with all it takes to drive success, Lucky is a perfect fit. He has the mojo to contribute significantly to national development. Intelligent transformative Zambian long denied to add value to the country. I applaud this choice. Congrats!

    • Double Masters, triple PHDs so what ni njala chabe. These days its about performance, what did he do for Solwezi Central

    • What job can fit Brian Hapunda? This chap Hapunda was expelled from UNZA for leakage. We don’t want to bring copy and paste officers in government. He is a failure who has cling on politics for his survival.

  2. How many ministers are working at state house ? What will all be doing there ? Wasting money . That’s why why PF are all bandits . Only development last fifty years in zambia is only 25 km . Airport turn off to Kabwe roundabout . So all those ministers will be dealing in the arms deal .

  3. Ya munyokola njala…. Go man. In a normal country, a person rejected in an election is not supposed to be re-appointed to such a position.

    Congrats

    • @# BREAKAWAY PARTY FROM CURRENT PF GOVT

      RB’S PIPO GETTING JOBS THIS ALL MMD
      BREAKAWAY PARTY IS SURE ON THE GROUND

    • This is not strange to Zambia where a politician loses an election and is given a Civil Service job. If you recall or read one top politician(forgotten his name John Major”s Govt lost an election but was appointed the last Viceroy to Hongkong and spearheaded the handover to the Chinese.

  4. Ba Mwisho Ba Mulusa. I hope you will exhibit maturity. I remember you in Solwezi in early and Mid 90’s. Now demonstrate what you are made of. Ensure that Kyafukuma beans is sold all over Zed.

  5. I think Mulusa is a rising star in Zambian politics. His stance on issues has been consistent. He would have continued in MMD if he had not crossed swords with Nevers. Nevers’ MMD has lost a useful asset. It is a pity that Nevers wants to surround himself with empty tins and not with real minds that can bring value to the table.
    PF have got a high value individual, probably at the advice of RB, who did say that he will help Lungu get the ‘right people.’
    This is a PF coup.

    • MULUSA CAN YOU TRUST THIS MAN VERY IMMATURE FALLEN HERO .
      PF MEMBERS YOU CANT OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE WHATS GOING ON
      RB IN CONTROL
      ALL MMD ARE BEING GIVEN HIGHER POSTS
      JOIN US IN THE BREAKAWAY PARTY .
      *******************************Ad hominem**************

  6. So what if he has double masters in finance, what are his personal achievements? Nothing!! He is nothing but a cheap job seeker. This country is not going to be developed by the likes of Mulusa but by leaders with a track record of personal achievement which they can use to change the working attitude of Zambians in general.

  7. We see RB is fund-raising,most of these appointments Lungu need to be careful. He will end up shooting himself on the foot. Ma appeasement yapaka….Mulusa was a staunch critic of PF, just like Kaingu who even tore the presidents speech in Parliament. Be careful Lungu.

  8. There is no news here. These are mere two years appointments. There will be new advisers by January 2015. Watch the space!!!

  9. Lucky is not a cheap Job seeker.

    Here in South Africa he had a top Job at Treasury head office Pretoria. He was also once a regional Director – Nedbank Group. He left all this , infact he resigned and decided to go back to Zambia. He can get a top job anytime anywhere . He has done so before

  10. Is it the PF ruling us? Or is it the PF-MMD in power? Tell us so we can make up our minds cos some of us dont think MMD has anything to contribute to the nation after staying in power for 2 decades

  11. Please Zambians don’t lie, Luck Mulusa was on a fake South African ID and had to run away from South Africa. He didn’t hold the top jobs as these are for Citizens. He also had a number of Sexual Harassment cases, so please just accept this man is a job seeker who was not there when we suffered for PF with Late Sata. This Man Lungu is creating a post that was not there when people are busy complaining about bloated cabinet.
    There are PS’s, Directors whose job is monitor and evaluate projects.
    No vision and its appeasement politics at the expense of tax payers.

  12. THIS IS A ‘THANK YOU’ APPOINTMENT ENGINEERED BY ALABI. MORE ARE COMING. NOW ALABI IS PUSHING FOR DORA’S SEAT TO BE GIVEN BACK TO HER. WATCH THIS SPACE. ITS ONE BY ONE, THEN IT WILL BE MUHABI LUNGU.

  13. HH supporters shld just keep quite. Yo HH will never make any appointments, he will just finish in that regional party. Let EL do his job, if he has decided to include MMD in his plans, we are happy. After u ba upnd claimed to had engineered the demise of mmd so u can swallow it. yes, MMD broke to pieces, but to only got the smoke (VJ, with sores in the head). Now whether its RB or MMD we support Lungu’s inclusion of them, at the end of the day they are coming to a PF run Govt with EL in charge. Good your Excellence EL!!!!!

  14. @wilz, why is that when someone sees things different from your point of view then they are HH supporters? Get some education and grow up. This is why the five fingers on your hands are not the same height. It is for a purpose.

  15. What about Fr Frank Bwalya? Someone is said he is tipped to be defense minister when Edgar feels tired of running that ministry.

  16. Chief cadre you are stupid. Why do you say tongas are selfish? I will not say anything apart from saying you are an *****.

  17. Nothing doing, 5, 10, 15 or 20 + degrees with nothing to show for oneself is neither here nor there when it comes to moving Zambia to another level in development. All appointees are job seekers who under their skins believe not in service to country but use country as a conduit for personal enrichment. Zambia needs people who have already made it in life as misappropriation of the meagre resources would be in check

  18. Not sure what is going on in this Lungu’s head. Where will the man come from to pay all these job seekers. This Mulusa is a dull chap masquerading as an intellectual.
    Just wait and see how his will dance Lungu’s ‘fwemba’ dance!
