Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Mr Davies Mwila has said that that President Edgar Lungu, acting in his capacity as Party President and in line with the powers vested in him by the PF Party Constitution, has appointed Information and Broadcasting Minister Kampamba Mulenga and Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya to the Party’s Central Committee with immediate effect.

“His Excellency the President has since called upon the duo to ensure they discharge their functions diligently and in the interest of the Party. I also take this opportunity to congratulate the two comrades and assure them of the Secretariat’s supportive role. There is no doubt that the two will add a lot of value to the Party through these appointments”, stated Mr Mwila.

“In the recent past, some Members of the Central Committee have been appointed to respective positions, including Diplomatic postings. The nation is aware that our National Chairperson Hon Dr. Ngosa Simbyakula is our Ambassador in the USA; Hon Alfreda Kansembe is our Ambassador in Brazil, Mrs Oyati is District Commissioner in Luampa, former Northern Province Chairperson Mr. Felix Mfula is Zambia’s High Commissioner to Canada. It goes without saying that two Members of the Central Committee were expelled from the Party, namely Hon Chishimba Kambwili and Hon Mwenya Musenge, respectively. The Party leadership is therefore taking steps to fill the vacancies created by the above developments,” said Mr Mwila.

    • Under pf party constitution the president is authorised to make such appointment . In your warped mind and in your party yes it can work like that. Talk of upnd even the position of the presidency is not elective but tribal appointment. In other words in upnd there’s no position which is elective. They are all appointments based either on tribe or business partnership.

  3. Ok in all honesty starting from president, both the late and current, PF has the most mediocre, extremely shallow, non strategic members both ordinary and the Ministers. They have absolutely zero attributes that would make the younger generation aspire to be like one of them. The MMD had big brains and people who knew what economic strategy was. They saw the big picture. Opposition rantings were just mosquitoes in their ears that they just waved away coz they knew that dwelling on pettiness like what PF thrives on would be too much of a cost to implementing policies that kept the kwacha at K5 to a dollar and commodity prices stable. Very painful the clueless dunderheads that took over. While progressive nations progress and evolve, we chose to devolve.

    • I share your views. One wonders whether this is the best one come up to lead and govern, given the endowment of brilliant and knowledgeable people the almighty has blessed this country with. It explains the mediocrity, plundering and corruption that is endemic in the administration; birds of a feather indeed flock together!

    • -“The MMD had big brains and people who knew what economic strategy was…”-MMD LEFT A ONE PISTON ECONOMY THAT WAS HEAVILY DEPENDENT ON COPPER WHICH SHOOK MASSIVELY WHEN NECESSARY INFRASTRUCTURAL PROJECTS STARTED HAPPENING AND THE PRICE OF COPPER PLUMMETED!!

      -“Opposition rantings were just mosquitoes in their ears that they just waved away …”-THIS ATTITUDE EVENTUALLY LED TO THE FALL OF THE MMD AS THE GREATEST POLITICIAN ZAMBIA HAS EVER HAD, MCS DISLODGED THEM AND SWEPT TO POWER!!!

      -“…too much of a cost to implementing policies that kept the kwacha at K5 to a dollar and commodity prices stable…”-WITH COPPER HITTING $10,000/ton AND BEING A SINGLE COMMODITY EXPORTER, ZAMBIA HAD EXCESS FOREX ON THE MARKET. AT END OF 2012 IT CRASHED TO BELOW $5,000/ton LOSING ALMOST 45% OF…

    • …ITS VALUE AND CORRESPONDING INCOME THE COUNTRY EARNED FROM COPPER. MWANAWASA “ECONOMIC SUCCESS” COINCIDED WITH HIGH COPPER PRICES WHILE THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS OF PF COINCIDED WITH THE FALL OF GLOBAL COMMODITY CRASH OF 2012.

    • Because I live in the real world. Because I know that our economy has remained the same from KK to Mwanawasa: a single commodity economy that needs diversification. If the price of copper hits $10k/ton today, the economy will pick up and the xcg rate will fall. Remember, how the economy was under FTJ with copper at $3k/ton???

  6. The President will make my day the moment he removes (sacks) Bowman Lusambo. Are there no better persons on the Copperbelt than that primitive bowman thing? He will cost the President valuable votes in 2021, in this age of 50%+1.

  7. If it were another political party I know appointing people like this, you should have head comments like look at the names. This is a tribal party. But when others do it, like in this case, they say call it stronghold not tribalism. kikikikikikikiki

    • Kanonga ebo. If other parties appoint ati there is no democracy in the party.

      Kanonga ebo. If others get on a plane, visits other countries ati they are denting the image of the country.

      Kanonga ebo. If someone makes it in business ati where, how, when, what, who, beve they keep changing suits like diapers.

      Kanonga ebo……
