Deputy Secretary to Cabinet Christopher Mvunga has called for a change of mindset in order to successfully implement the 7th National Development Plan.

He said this during the official opening of the formulation of volume II of the plan in Siavonga today where he said Volume II seeks to spell out the implementation of the recently launched 7th National Development Plan.

The Secretary to Cabinet stated that all Zambians must commit to ensuring that the plan is a success and that citizens must be optimistic that the set goals can be achieved.

He further explained that His Excellency the President wants the document to succeed without fail.

“Civil Servants must work hard in implementing the plan and any civil servant that will not support the Plan will have to be retired from the civil service.” He said.

Mr. Mvunga also directed the Ministry of National Development Planning to develop a comprehensive communication strategy that will allow Zambians in all parts of the country to understand the contents of the document.

He urged the Ministry to translate the document into several local languages that will make it easier for citizens in certain parts of the country to understand the document.

And speaking at the same event, United Nations Resident Representative Janet Rohan stated that the plan is of a very high standard and indicated that the UN would like to use it to show case the 7NDP as one of the best practices among UN member states.

She stated that it is important that other countries learn how Zambia has manged to develop such a coherent and well-articulated plan that reflects the principles of sustainable development.

“The plan is of a very high standard and indicated that the UN would like to use it to show case the 7NDP as one of the best practices among UN member states” Ms. Rogan said

    We always have good plans and intentions. But implementation is a different story. We borrow money from IMF and others for implementation purpose but the money disappears into personal bank accounts.

    KK had 20 National Development Plans, they all failed.

    Development comes from the bottom NOT from the top. Sustained development comes from the private sector NOT from Govt. Ask USA, Germany, Japan, or closer to home, RSA.

    I think Mvunga means we change our mindsets to drinking our heads off & break-dancing. The caliber of PF ministers is disappointing.

    1st it was their humble but dictator, christian but jealous, bible-reader but drunkard, evil buff_oon president boasting of bribing an IMF official.

    Then comes the 3 time ACCA flunker, another dull buff_oon called Mutati revealed that he doesn’t know how much the country’s external debt is or that ZRA has exceeded its collection targets.

    Now this spoilt brat of a jester called mvunga.

    Zambians please wear your seat belts, hard times are coming your way.

    Amapange ubwingi!
    It’s all talk and no work.
    I have been hearing about these national plans since I was little, 50 years later, we have nothing to show for the plans.
    We get worse by the day,
    Since now it’s “DUNUNA REVERSE” don’t get too excited with PF plans, it’s all about “more money in their pockets”.

      Did you mean he looks drank? I don’t understand how the President has surrounded himself with the likes of Chris Mvunga, no wonder the economy is on its knees.

    When did this spoiled brat become Deputy Secretary to Cabinet?
    How did he transition from politician to senior civil Servant? There are many qualified career civil servants yet a kadansa comes & bypass them.
    Other than his Kumawa patronage & Jameson whisky drinking partnership what other special qualification does he possess to sidestep seasoned C/servants?
    Chagwa is really hell-bent strategically slotting in his fellow WniW!

    I can’t even bother to read what this drunk is talking about! Is this not the same guy who was deputy finance minister to Chikwanda who was filmed drunk singing RB praises! These are just words to please gullible Zambians but when it comes to implementation- Zero. I can’t get excited, not a bit!

    Really laughable change our mindsets when you should lead by example..take you lazy boss Edgar as one he has travelled on pointless trips to Lesotho, Kampala in the last 5 days then decides to have a working visit to CB on Friday. What are you going to do on CB on Saturday and Sunday?
