President Edgar Lungu has challenged all Permanent Secretaries to interlink with their cabinet and deputy ministers in order to provide effective public service delivery.

Mr. Lungu noted that there has been a lapse among some of the permanent secretaries in interfacing with their ministers and deputies in their discharge of duties.

The President said as controlling officers of government ministries, permanent secretaries should ensure that programmes that form part of the vision of the people of Zambia are collaboratively addressed.

Mr Lungu said this in Lusaka yesterday when he swore in Kayula Siame as the new Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Industry.

And speaking to journalists shortly after being sworn in, Mrs. Siame said she will work towards the successful implementation of the industrialisation and job creation strategy programme.

Mrs. Siame said she will ensure that there is full and active participation of micro and small business enterprises in country’s economy.

Meanwhile, President Edgar Lungu said it is no doubt that the falling of copper prices and the energy deficit has impacted negatively on the country’s economy.

Mr. Lungu said government welcomes investment in renewable energy such as biomass, and among other forms of traditional energy.

The President said this when he met a team of visiting German business delegation at State House today.

And Mr. Lungu said the country’s political stability has continued to attract many foreign investors.

Mr. Lungu assured all investors to continue investing in the country and assured them of safety of their businesses.

  1. I wish to firstly congratulate the President for resisting the temptation of appointing a political cadre to such a crucial position. Secondly i congratulate Kayula Siame for being appointed PS in this important ministry.
    To me this appointment comes as a ‘shock’ in this political era where cadres want to fill up positions that they have no knowledge about. That is one of the mistakes our leaders have been making. How could a political cadre PS inspire the technocrats in the ministry when he/she is blank about the fundamental aspects of the functions of that ministry? Can a political cadre tolerate advice from the technocrats, especially if it is going against his/her illusions?
    Another factor to consider is that appointment of cadres to ministries dampens the working culture of the…

  2. MR President maybe someone is not telling you the truth. Things are not well in the nation. The only thing we need now is for you to act for the masses not those surrounding you. I feel their interest is earn a living and to bring you down. Fire the ZESCO director he is doing nothing and all the area managers. We have unplanned load shading schedules that are frustrating. We don’t want you to see a ZESCO van torched to see this. The level of torarance for the people is becoming low especially where l stay in Garneton Kitwe. The load shading is extreme. Just today from 06 am till now 15:00 there is no power and one cares. I will write the same letter in the newspaper soon if nothing changes.
