    • If you became president, you’d be a fool not to assemble your own team in strategic positions… just reality!


  1. what of some of us cadres that campaigned for u Mr president , u are just recycling people , bring in some from OUTSIDE the box , we have waited for too long. ANY CHANCE for me? Cos. i can see MUSHOTA promoted to TAKE OVER ANTHONY’S JOB IN SWEEDEN


  2. The President should also have confirmed the appointment of Paramount Chief HH of the Namwala people. Isn’t this not official yet? Didn’t his MPs move that motion when they came back for allowances?


  3. I do not agree that there shouls be more appointments for Tongas, Tumbukas and Lozis. Zambia is blessed with many professionals from all tribes some of whom are more educated than those holding certain government positions. A balance from all tribes would make Lungu’s party stronger. Tribal politics does not last. We hope the next President will not follow this route. Zambia belongs to all tribes not just a few.


  4. For someone to be appointed as ambassador it means someone else has been recalled from that position. In your reporting, you should have mentioned the people recalled.
