President Edgar Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has appointed Esau Chulu as chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) subject to ratification by the National Assembly.

President Lungu has also appointed Emily Sikazwe and David Matongo as commissioners for the ECZ subject to ratification by the National Assembly.
Justice Chulu is currently serving as a commissioner at the ECZ.

He will replace Justice Ireen Mambilima who is now Chief Justice while Ms. Sikazwe will replace the late Mineva Tembo and Mr. Matongo will fill the vacancy to be left by Justice Chulu.

Meanwhile, the President has also reappointed Patrick Mvunga as chairperson of the Judicial Complaints Authority with Justice Christopher Mushabati and Lusaka lawyer Mwangala Zaloumis to continue as members.

Mr. Lungu has also repointed members of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) board.

The President has since reminded the commissioners that corruption is a serious crime against development whose consequences are borne more by the poor and vulnerable Zambians.

This is contained in a statement released to ZANIS by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda.

    • Rubbish naimwe ba misnamed Chosen One, any sensible person can see that this is a no-brainer.

      Ati credit to HH, he is trying to cling to floating straws in an effort to stay afloat as his political fortunes continue to drown irreversibly.
      Tell him that politics of Presidency is not for lazy people, you have to work hard for it and then you need divine intervention on top of everything else, which apparently he does not believe in.

    • Jump starts do not sound original. The Prezident must be proactive not reactive. This gives credit to others when it is his duty to initiate.

    • @Action Man, David Matongo is from the east? Do you know where Pemba is? Do you know who has been Pemba MP under UPND?
      Wako ni wako, an eastern appointing a tonga UPND member on ECZ, that is called independence of ECZ and not the rubbish you are talking about.

    • “Chulu” – “Lungu” – they rhyme! I wonder if this is not a well-calculated investment designed to tip the scale in favor of the incumbent?

    • You are a big laugh and just myopic.
      hh has suggested nothing and you know it. upnd carders are pathetic. ECL will finish you completely to the bones. Continue with this kind of laughable campaign and you will remain used to crying after every election results because you have stopped thinking. ‘checks and balance’ hh never urged anybody…unless you do not know…IT IS THE PRESIDENT WHO APPOINTS THE CHAIRMAN OF ECZ AT HIS TIME. He is never urged by any one, let alone on the constitution. Get a life and comment on things you can suggest. I would wonder if hh is not ashamed of such comments from his carders of your kind.

    • At last a Matongo who is Tonga has been given some little flesh to chew. Sometimes we forget that there are still Tongas in Zambia.

    • It is actually HH who forced him to appoint the ECZ Chairperson. In Principle, HH is the one governing Zambia, deputized by Rupiah Banda and the Mr. Edgar Chibuku Sangoma Lungu is HH spokes person. Whatever HH says, the Kachasu man quickly implements even when he is outside Zambia eg the issue of the retirement age which he announced in China.
      Presdent Sangoma is the worst tribalist. Why didnt you chose some one from other regions you Kachasu Embassy Park Man.

  2. This is a crucial issue and last minutes surprises are not what UPnD what to see. Therefore is it imperative to politely make a call. This appointments clears down uncertainties and helps manage worries.

  3. There is nothing that HH has done. He only got information that the president will announce the ECZ commissioner and went ahead so that we see that is the one who is working. Moreover, if its the one, then we have a very listening government and we must happy.

  6. PF leads in Chawama by 2,033. Only 12 polling stations have been counted so far.
    In Masaiti it is neck to neck with UPND. The opposition has maintained a slim lead over PF by 78 votes from 7 polling stations counted so far.
    Preliminary results from Nsenga Hills are yet to be confirmed though exit polls show that PF candidate will carry the day.

    Just received.

  7. Who is f00ling who here? This certifies OP leakages which need special scrutiny. Do not underestimate possible negative consequences of such loopholes (if any).

  8. @?Action Man, why can’t you also start your own party, win the election and appoint your own tribesmen instead of yapping negativity all the time.

  9. HH is indeed providing true leadership and guidance to one vissionless Edgar Lungu. Whether the haters like it or not, Lungu is lagging far behind.

    • Hehehehehe…kikikikikiki….this HH said this and Edgar followed, HH did that and Edgar followed, at 12:45pm HH asked Edgar to announce ECZ chairperson and two hours later Edgar did as instructed. It seems the only place where one can find morons easily and cheaply nowadays is in UPND. God help us!

  12. …Seriously, there are a lot of flaws at State House and later on Red Brick. This should not be trivialized.

    1. HH said reduce fuel prices, they did
    2. Re-instate nurses they did
    3. Recognise Chitimukulu- they did
    4. Zesco tariffs – They fired Chitundu
    4. Reduse Meali prices- they did
    5. Retirement age – they did
    6. ECZ Chairperson – they have
    the list is endless.

    When HH says that I receive intelligence reports, can you doubt him??

    President ni HH!!!!
