    • Today’s Times of Zambia headline was: DON’T PANICK. I don’t mind minor grammatical errors in smaller stories, but not the Headline of the Paper ???? Are these spelling mistakes also a result of the free fall of the Kwacha?

    • @Ndobo, don’t be tired, it just too long time for Edger to be sober. He should first change what he drinks during business, that whiskey black is no good, makes one so slow, and people mistake him to be a polite guy.

    • Dear Mr President, the kwacha is nose diving and you are busy making changes where it does not matter. Now hear this from social media kwacha is fall due to the following reasons
      1. borrowing without plans, excessive borrowing for that matter
      2. you have failed to inject confidence in the economy with a press conference where you can give economic direction to the nation and the world
      3. your absence on key economic issues has resulted into speculative or negative sentiments creating pressure on the kwacha
      4. you economic managers at finance are not alive to the global changes, hence they have a wait and see approach to economic matter
      5. you have paid too much attention to politics, hence spending more on campaigns for by-elections
      6. Corruption is on the increase in all sectors…

  1. This is what he knows best. Appointments!! He is in fact moving “wrong” people. Make changes to key ministry, the Ministry of Finance! Also come out from hiding and face the nation. Address the nation on the state of the economy and measures you have put in place. Remaining quiet will just heighten anxieties in the market.

  2. Peter Mwamba was at Ministry of health before, what did he do? This is only surviving PS from MMD to PF. Is Health improving or going backwards? Peter you have few months before UPND takes over, so do something to remember you by. Medicines in hospital are still a problem. Since you have been returned to Mnistry of health we expect you to do something this time around otherwise you are just a musical chair. Please open a window to consult a number of the doctors who are Zambian trained but are now abroad. We have ideas we can share with you how to improve the health system in that beautiful country.

  3. Iwe ma Jameson! Address the nation, hold a press conference and tell the people which direction you are taking the nation! Since PF took over power in 2011 there has never been a press conference! That in it self tells us a lot about the caliber of people at helm of this country- visionless f00ls!

  4. PF is probably the only Government in the world that has spent 4 years in power just appointing people! That’s all they know. Meanwhile the economy is experiencing a complete meltdown! What a Government! The country can do better without this government, savings would be huge!

  5. @Mambwe! You are not normal and seriously you need psychiatric treatment just like Edgar Lungu. Two weeks the BOZ Governor advised the govt to reduce on expenditure and the imbecile at state house goes on to create more districts across the country! Is that normal sure!

    The question is why are they hated.

  9. Edgar lungu is a very big embarrassment to Zambia. The drunkard has no mercy on Zambians. He is busy urinating in his trousers because of too much beer abuse while 80% of Zambians are leaving in abject poverty.

  10. Those transfers go with settling allowance of more than 40 000 kwacha at the level of PS. Some individual said government will reduce expenditure. Haa!!! Which government?? Not of Jameson. Shame. Reshuffling reshuffles.

    • He is merely reshuffling K2 notes on top of each other thinking people will turn their heads but they are wise to know its the selfsame myopic regurgitated rubbish.

  11. First of all, get a picture of this man that makes him look presidential, or ask him to shave.
    Secondly, what will these shuffles do to reduce load shedding, or the spiralling kwacha, high commodity prices.

    Otherwise, this will not make any sense and is not news worthy of sharing.

  12. What, in God’s universe and PF’s Zambia have these 3 PS movements got to do with changing anything? Routine? My president, I don’t think we can afford such actions in routine at such time as this when every move we make must have a direct proportion to sorting out the many problems we must find solutions to. If one of the three is a slaggard, we best may have dumped it and made others work. Reshuffles ain’t our friend at the moment. Unless I missed something?

  14. Looks like we are back to the days of Kaunda and UNIP, where changes was the primary function of the head of state. Making changes without explaining the reasons. If these guys are failures just fire them period. Where transfer a problem from one ministry only to pass this on to another ministry

    If a person cannot perform regardless of the field be it politics or what so ever, you do not move them in the same capacity. You either demote or dismiss them for being incompetent

  16. Dear Mr President, and copy to my fellow voters,

    Frederick Chiluba set a very nasty precedent when he began appointing Permanent secretaries and instead of correcting this you who have succeeded him, want to continue with this corrupt legacy. All because you enjoy power. Instead of correcting operations that are corrupt you have continued to appoint Permsecs, Parastatal heads and you have continued with unneccessary ownership of all the country’s media companies thereby misspending the bond money you are borrowing.

    You are supposed to leave the Public Service Commission to make appointments for Permanent Secretaries because thats what the nation pays this commission for but you are busy giving it to supervise, people you appoint out of political considerations. These people know…

  17. . These people know nothing about the civil service and are only there to wait for salaries. How can the commission supervise a political appointee? The commission is scared shiit of you so they cant discipline a wayward political appointee.

    Meanwhile your Minister of Information, a very unneccessary ministry in a democracy I must say, is busy criticising the very same civil servants you are appointing. Why he is criticising them is because political appointees can’t work. Its either you do away with the Public commission altogether because it has been made redendant by your appointments and transfers otherwise you are duplicating civil service work.

    As for my fellow voters let’s ask the next president to make an open vow to stop such corrupt appointments or we will end up paying…

  18. As for my fellow voters let’s ask the next president to make an open vow to stop such corrupt appointments or we will end up paying more taxes for institutions that dont work for us but for the ruling political party thereby draining our tax, like the civil service, ZNBC, Times of Zambia etc. Lets make these politicians answerable to us.

  19. Is this the only job that the presidents does ? When are these appointments going to end ?Sata was doing the same and he(Lungu )has carried on doing the same. Four years of non stop appointments of friends and family at a time when the economy is taking a nose dive. There is nothing wrong with the previous system. What has been wrong is the people running them. Appointing more clueless people who only care about their bank accounts is not going to change our country.
    If you have a minister who cant see that employing PF members only to work for RSTA is wrong, then we do have a serious problem as a nation. It discourages competition. Wrong people are being employed to run positions they are not qualified for and our economy is sent tumbling off the mountain cliff.

  20. @Adopt a dog You bring out a valid point. Lets make demands to our presidents instead of going to listen to manufactured manifestos.

    How many of the numerous Presidents we have had have come into office and said “I am no longer going to be the appointer for such and such an institution because I have too much authority?”

    The answer is None. Because they all love power and they want to have more power. Lots of power in one man is what has sent Zimbabwe where it is and Zambia where it was in 1990. Iam sure even HH when he takes over he will cling to all the bad practices of his predecessor. Lets wake up and lets wake our presidential contenders up!

  24. We, the People of Zambia, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what’s in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.The future rewards those who press on. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself over the elections. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on.“When we don’t pay close attention to the decisions made by our leaders, when we fail to educate ourselves about the major issues of the day, when we choose not to make our voices and opinions heard, that’s when democracy breaks down. That’s when power is abused. That’s when the most extreme…

  25. Leadership is learned behavior that becomes unconscious and automatic over time. For example, leaders can make several important decisions about an issue in the time it takes others to understand the question. Many people wonder how leaders know how to make the best decisions, often under immense pressure. The process of making these decisions comes from an accumulation of experiences and encounters with a multitude of difference circumstances, personality types and unforeseen failures. More so, the decision making process is an acute understanding of being familiar with the cause and effect of behavioral and circumstantial patterns; knowing the intelligence and interconnection points of the variables involved in these patterns allows a leader to confidently make decisions and…
