Siavonga DC turns his public office into a political arena for receiving defectors

Headlines Siavonga DC turns his public office into a political arena for receiving...


Siavonga District Commissioner (DC) Lovemore Kanyama has turned his office into a political party arena for receiving stage managed defectors to the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) Party.

Receiving defectors who claimed to have joined the PF using a public office at the district Administration, Mr Kanyama welcomed them for declaring their support to work with the PF government.

Even when reminded if it was the PF’s policy to receive defectors in  public offices, Kanyama claimed he received them because they have pledged to work with the ruling party to bring development to the district.

Among the defectors included the Oliver Muuka who is one of the people who stood as Independent candidate for the position of council chairperson in the last year’s general elections.

The others are Macklon Sialanga from MMD, Donald Hamoonga from UPND, and Michael Hamakole who said is not from any political party.

Mr Kanyama told the defectors that they are free to come to his office anytime and no one will harass them.

He said Siavonga people should not doubt because government is working to develop the district and the entire Southern Province.

However, the senior PF leadership in the district has distanced themselves from the defectors to the ruling party arguing that it was not the duty of the DC to receive people willing to join PF but the party leaders.

The leaders who did not want to be named said the purported defectors were fake and it was also wrong for Mr Kanyama to receive them in a public office.


  1. haha its just that this guys are small fish with no following that is the reason seniors are not on the side of the DC if it was someone with a sounding following pf would have said it is a free country

    • No job description for DCs, ni chipantepante chabe.

      Even lorry boys a given word of mouth job descriptions pf DCs, nothing ni vinani mwamene mwainvelela.

  2. The D.C we have now are not professional. Imagine a solwezi D.C went to a training center sponsored by the mine to request that they should recruit her people (relatives). without shame when the company is playing a fair game for all the poor but she wants all for herself.

  3. Just Just look at how ugly this thing is. Am sure it had an ugly heart too. Busy abusing public resources for political gain. Galu iwe. Typical pf thug

  4. As usual P.F rotten bandits Not Working, just using government taxpayer funded office to plunder, & focus on Chakolwas 2021 “Vision” as 2021 is the only Vision Chakolwa has.

  5. Iwe matako yako! Why do you play with public office? Those offices do not belong to Pf nor Edgar. Useless DC! No I don’t subscribe to the idea of appointing cadres into public offices because these offices are supposed to be held by professionals . During the tenure of Edgar lungu things have been messed up.
