PF Lusaka Province Youth Chairman Kennedy Kamba says civil servants should not expect any improvement in their conditions of the service because they did not vote for President Edgar Lungu.

In an interview, Mr Kamba said majority of civil servants abandoned the PF on the August 11th polls and they do not deserve to benefit from its stay in government.

He advised President Lungu to focus on improving the livelihoods of the poor in compounds whom he said turned up in large numbers to vote for the PF.

Mr Kamba said it will be unfair for government to start increasing salaries of civil servants who did support the party’s re-election bid.

“Our message as youths in Lusaka is that those that should benefit from this government are the people in Kombonis (compounds). The people in Marapodi, Kuku, Jack and places like Chipata compound. Those are the ones that supported us,” Mr Kamba said.

He added, “Civil servants betrayed us by siding with the other party and now that we have formed government, they should not expect anything from us. Our focus should be on making sure that the poor people in the compounds benefit.”

Mr Kamba said the PF is a party for poor people but noted that some civil servants who received salary increments three years ago did not vote for the PF in 2016 due to their own reasons.

    • Does he forget that he is a civil servant himself as his paycheck comes from taxpayers’ money? That’s just utter stupidity! There is no way a ruling party should be allowed to blatantly show discrimination and favours according to political affiliation. This kind of reasoning just takes us backwards!

    • Kennedy Mamba, that kind of thinking is misplaced.

      Who voted for who has nothing to do with salaries and development.

      Are you also wanting to behave like HH who does not understand democracy?

      When it comes to governance, whoever wins does the right thing for every citizen, those who voted for him and those who did not.

      Kamba, don’t behave like the people of Nambala who started victimizing others on suspicion they voted for ECL.

      Ba Kennedy, campaign is over now. It is time to work, and work for everybody, every village, every town, every city, every chiefdom, every Province.

    • Lungu is a shameless thief! Imagine imposing himself on the Zambian people even though he is an unwanted element, a thorn in people’s flesh! Lungu is a serious abomination to the Zambian people and humanity at large. This guy’s remarks are a clear indication that only a minority voted for Lungu. Shame on you shameless Lungu Kaminaminsa Jameson.

It is a known fact that the IMF Austerity program will call for among other things a public sector wage freeze. So this loud mouth should not bring ridicule on the Presidency with wild statements that just create acrimony.

We are all tax payers don’t think iwe Chi Kamba are above other citizens by virtue if your party Being in Power. You have already made tribalism prominent in Zambia don’t bring another divisive dimension PLEASE

    • Wow! This guy is completely lost. Or is he telling us that the 2016 vote was not secret after all. PF was monitoring how people were casting their votes. I see some people here even want to explain how they voted. Is that the level of confusion that we have reached. Am not surprised though. Ba Edgar himself from his own mouth said he will only take development to hia strongholds where people voted for him. Now that its coming from another senior party member perhaps that’s the official PF development strategy.

    • There you have it. This is what we’re up against. This is how dictatorial regimes work. You vote for us or we’re going to make your life miserable. You pay to play. What dictatorial governments do is they make sure you understand that if you don’t cast a vote for them, they’ll make your life a living hell. So this guy’s view of the people’s mandate given to them as a party to lead the country, is to be selective in which citizens deserve to be helped, and which do not. It’s a form of discrimination based on Party loyalty, which is totally unconstitutional. Not that a political party put in government is supposed to serve ALL the citizens of the country. So it’s either you’re PF or you’re doomed. They’re now trying to create absolute loyalty to them. Maybe next it’ll be…

In short, it’s either be loyal to their party or suffer. That’s typical of dictatorships. They run a tight corrupt ship, like the mafia. What’s wrong with political leaders in Africa? Is it just mere ignorance of politicians or what? In any civilized western country, what this guy has uttered is enough to have him thrown out of office. I mean do these people even have a basic understanding of what it means to be in public office?

  1. There are civil servants who voted for PF. He is correct though that the majority of civil servants including defence wings and those in the private sector employment did not vote for PF.

    I offer reasons why they voted for change. Zambians by and large abhour corruption, looting of state resources, oppression and dictatorship. And Lungu was the picture of all these evils. He muzzled private media, took corruption to unknown levels, broke the ceiling of looting of state resources and in just a year he pocketed K15m, Lungu used executive and judiciary wings to suppress freedoms.

    There will be nothing to dish out to the deceived in the kombonis. The state coffers are dry and those in the private sector will be unwilling to pay tax to fuel corruption.

  4. Levy Patrick Mwanawasa, a Lawyer, managed to put cadres in their place. I hope Edgar Chagwa Lungu, a lawyer will do the same.

    This is the kind of cadre reasoning that Zambia does not need at this point in time. What this Cadre is forgetting is that the greatest buy of goods and services from the people in the compounds is the civil servants. If Civil Servants spend a significant amount of their money on goods and services offered by the so called poor. The Economy is a well linked machine and I don’t expect a cadre like Kamba to understand this this trickle down theory.

    This caderism needs to be put in it’s place until 2021. Now is the time to develop the country across party lines regardless of who voted for who.

      Kamba is draws his inspiration from a template that we all know; Edgar.

      Ruthless, ton of bricks, big stick, I will crush you. Dictatorship. Oppression. No dissent. Mugabe and Mu7 compatriot.

      There is nothing to expect in Zambia under Edgar Lungu apart from even more heightened:

      1. Suppression of freedoms
      2. Extra judicial killings
      3. Denial of basic freedoms through draconian use of POA
      4. Melt down of the economy as lenders refuse to give lifeline
      5. Political risk and intolerance
      6. Theft and looting of public resources. Lungu will in a year steal more than what he did in past 1 and half years.
      7. Endemic corruption as everyone goes to cash in.
      8. Hunger, disease and poverty.
      9. Impunity and disrespect of the law by cronies of Edgar.

      I think you are emotional and exaggerating. Again we don’t need this type of approach to problems we have in Zambia. Let us be sane, honest, sober, objective and solve the problems we have Zambia.

      These outlandish FUDs ( Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt ) you are preaching and spreading wont help us move Zambia forward. The constituency you are appealing to with your discourse, frankly doesn’t even care about Zambia, but themselves..

      No doubt Zambia has problems and they can be solved and we have to be honest in our assessment and framing of those problems than play this party caderism that am condemning Kamba for.

      Far be it for me to spread anything other than toscin signs of perilous times ahead. The crescendo of ominous clouds of a failed state on the back of intolerance, corruption, grand state resource looting, clamp down on all freedoms stares us in the face.

      At a time like this, many chose to ride the gravy train which soon becomes bogged down in a sewer.

      The moment any government choses to suppress the media, then you have a self fulfilling prophecy of dictatorship and its twin of economic breakdown. Peep south of vic falls.

    • My curiosity is how they can run govt for the benefit of unemployed and unemployables in the slums. Lungu will not be able to create more civil service jobs, and he cannot give salary increments to civil servants. Subsidies from mealie meal, fuel and electricity will be removed. The only people who will not feel the impact are those removed from the money economy and survive on kachasu only. The slum dwellers are going to be fcuked, per Kaffir Zulu.

They didn’t vote for you because they are feeling the pinch of the economy you have mismanaged. i.e they are paying more for the loans they got cause you have worsened the interest rates…. from 18% to 40% meaning if one was repaying K1800 for his loan, they are now paying K4000. moreover, they pay the tax whilst the so called vendors pay nothing…..

What you have said is a sweeping statement that has NO BASIS and CANNOT BE PROVEN. Mind the way you articulate issues for the public or else you will discourage even those people who have support for your party, PF. In fact it is not your party, but a party for intelligent, wise and learned people NOT YOURSELF. Meet me in town (Lusaka) so that I off-load all the words I have for you. What you have said is really discouraging to civil servants.

And even if they did not vote for Lungu so what? They had to vote for a candidate of their choice and you don’t even know who exactly they voted for. If you don’t have anything sensible to say just keep quiet. No wonder why you stole the votes, there’s no way a party with such low caliber of people could have won those elections

  31. First and foremost, were would money for salary increments have come from? My understanding now is that the IMF is here, if you are a civil servant the last seen you want to see is your employer (GRZ) sitting on the same table with the IMF. The IMF will not tolerate any unnecessary fiscal government spending especially that of addressing civil servants plight. Civil servants expect no salary increment in the coming years what you should hope not to expect or need to dread the most are retrenchments. Second, which monies will GRZ be using to develop compounds. Under IMF GRZ need to be sustainable in their expenditure, that is spending according to what they collect from tax payers. They be no further loan borrowing, no construction of roads, no new schools or clinics, hospitals.

  47. Across all Party Cadre opinion is that this is a partly flawed advice to gov’t. Civil Servants are supposed to be the centre for delivery of gov’t policy and programmes. We cannot spite them. Their salaries must be maintained with the economic performance indicator. Raise where appropriate if inflation hikes up. I think what he means to say, (and I am sure he will want to issue another press release, apologising for his emotional outburst); is that Civil Servant demands for higher salaries above inflation will not be tolerated. The problem with demonising Civil Servants is that they will only grow more corrupt and start extorting money from innocent citizens for doing their job. PAY THEM ON TIME EACH MONTH, that’s the best advice His Excellency should attempt to instill in the…

    • PAY THEM ON TIME EACH MONTH, that’s the best advice His Excellency should attempt to instill in the next 5 years. These people are vital to a working gov’t. If the gov’t wants to go to war with an unsupportive Vivil Servant (which is what this chap needs to be saying), the gov’t can remove Civil Servants that are derailing its rule, and that us righteous. The gov’t should appraise each Civil Servant’s job performance. Measure how quickly they are processing services in line with their duty if there are bottlenecks in services such as the slow Land/home ownership title processing, then terminate contracts immediately. If these appraisals are done quarterly, the gov’t can catch any disobedience. Set their performance targets high. Trade Unions will probably go ape, but the…

  48. Do you know what Democracy means Kennedy Kamba. Ask somebody to educate you. Civil servants have a right to vote for who they like. Arent you ashamed that the Civil servants who know you better did not vote for you? Ask yourself why they did not vote for you.

    • @ninala, you are correct! but please note that Civil Servants are supposed to be non-political, non-partisan because they are the backbone of the government delivery in its years of rule. That is why their jobs are the most secure of all sectors. They get job protection and are not removed after each gov’t. The idea is that they provide Continuity, so yes the gentleman is correct in voicing concern in Civil Servant mutiny.

  51. Effect will always follow cause with unerring certainty. Do not be deceived. GOD cannot be tricked.. A man shall reap what he sows.
    Brethren you can never expect orange fruit from a pine tree. You shall know them by the fruits. A good tree bears good fruits a corrupt tree like wise. For by your words you shall be justified and by the same words you shall be condemned. It is better to keep quiet and make people wonder why than to speak and make them wish /regret you had not. Silence is the best substitute for wisdom.

  52. Comrade Kamba us correct and on point about development in the Compounds, all compounds including Kalingalinga, Chawama and all those others Kamba mentions. This is the easiest target for His Excellency, President Lungu because the development will stand out as testimony. The type of development needed through development programmes is Road Building, some like Kalingalinga already have tarred roads which are now desperately in need of repair, so it is just a partial spend to bring them up to scratch. Complete sewage works already in action. This area has become an economic hive with industry every where along the roads, very impressive. A lot us already happening currently in the last five years. Local Markets like Chelston, need to be developed and improve sanitation in them to…

    • Local Markets like Chelston, need to be developed and improve sanitation in them to draw the locals back to shopping there than in supermarkets like Spar etc. the poor in these compounds can be helped very quickly and they are deserving folk who are hard work ing entrepreneurs who are self helping than depending on gov’t fir jobs.

  54. Civil servants and other stakeholders should not for granted Kennedy Kamba’s comments. He is speaking/ expressing HIS MASTER’S VOICE. A lot of not user friendly civil servants will systematically be purged from the system. Just wait and see how thing things will unfound once Edgar C. Lungu is sworn as Republican President and Cabinet put in place. Kamba is a Provincial Youth Chairman for Lusaka Province not National Youth Chairman so where does he draw all that power to wash down the civil servants and the like. It speaks volumes of well schemed events to unfold in the next five (5) of Edgar C. Lungu’s reign.

  57. Mr.Kamba,watch your mouth. In what capacity are you making that statement.? Your statement on civil servants salaries not being hiked is a dangerous thought.What you are saying has the potential to put the country on fire.Which data are using to base your statement. ? Yes some civil servants did not vote for PF and they voted for the candidate of their choice,and that is what democracy is all ,and yet most overs voted otherwise.Dont make our president fail to rule this country due to your utmost selfishness as people who surround him.Are you saying because Western,Northwestern,Southern and other provinces did not vote for him ,then they will not be developed? No,lets not slide the country back into an era of segregation based on the voting pattern.

  62. The International Monetary Fund will help Zambia only if the government stops spending. Remove all subsidies on food and fuel. Sell Zesco to a private company to gain profits.
    The Zambian Government has approached the IMF for a bailout believed to be in the region of US$1 billion mainly for balance of payment support. IMF wants government to cut on spending on civil servants and building projects. “We certainly have our own concerns about borrowing and too much borrowing. Zambia of course borrowed on the issued sovereign bonds at high rates.

  63. PF Lusaka Province Youth Chairman Kennedy Kamba what you are saying that civil servants should not expect any improvement in their conditions of the service because they did not vote for President Edgar Lungu. This is foolish thinking worse than Nevers, GBM, Martha Mushipe and HH. Don’t you know that there civil servants who have suffered because because aligning themselves with PF since its birth. To tell you the truth more civil servants voted for PF than UPND. Don’t you remember civil servant being chased from some districts and provinces for being suspected of being PF people. You is like all southerners, Westeners and North westerners voted for UPND, not at all. Mind you, if majority civil servants did not vote for Lungu and all southerners, Westeners and North westerners voted…

    for UPND he was going to lose to HH or not manage 50 plus 1. Mind you civil servants are more than 300 000 and the difference between Edgar and HH was 100 530. If you subtract just half of 300 000 from 100 530 you get (49470) This shows how important was civil servants votes and will be. I hope you have learnt something from this explanation MR. KAMBA if you are still doughting just ask all DCs in the country they will give you the good picture to correct your wrong thinking.
