    • Bwana I thought you were in the forefront of rewarding cadres like Mwamba with these jobs, instead of exploiting them on your farm of trucking business.

  2. In all fairness its the politicians that have caused this scenario. This started way back in MMD but taken to another level by PF and I am sure UPND would have punctured the sky

    • Your comments about UPND merely reflect your prejudices as they have never run govt.

  3. The day that political operatives called district commissioners stop drawing civil service salaries and benefits is the day the moral high ground will have been reached to make such pronouncements.

    So why is this chap so scared of being out of power?? What is being hidden??? This is what is called dictatorship by stealth, even the perpetuator doesn’t know his condition!

  5. On President Edgar Lungu and his presidency, of what joy is it to be a leader of a people not totally amenable to your leadership and who view your governance style with a pinch of mediocrity! Democracy is a dispersion of electorate numbers that has no truth to the general feelings of the people! African “Democracy” is veiled autocratic rule as the winner takes it all with no real regard for participation in governance by the loser! Let not Civil Servants be part of political rhetoric and threats for unless found wanting in their discharge of duties their tenure of office outlives or spills over parties that form government at election cycles!

  6. Dickson Chasaya retired a long time ago from the civil service. Is this country really short of vibrant young people to take up such positions?
