Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila has warned District Commissioners (DC) that are not willing to work with the PF administration that they risk losing their jobs.

Speaking when he officially launched the Central Province PF party mobilization in Kapiri Mposhi yesterday, Mr. Mwila said District Commissioners are appointed at the recommendation of district and provincial party officials, adding that the top leadership reserves the right to terminate contracts for DCs that were not willing to work with the ruling party.

Mr. Mwila noted that DCs are appointed at the discretion of the Head of State, hence, the need for them to pay allegiance to the appointing authority and his party.

The PF Secretary General called for intensified party mobilization at all party ranks and file to enable the party sustain its popularity in the country.

    Does this make DC’s civil servants? Someone clarify please. If not, should they be drawing a government salary? If yes, shouldn’t the posts be open to everyone?

    • The danger of appointing cadres as District Commissioners you have a situation where the likes it f Davies Mwile, a mere cadre to warn them for not singing long live PF. Such offices should be occupied by non cadres so that Mwila cannot have guts to threaten people.

  2. Mwila confirms that DCs are PF party cadres! They should then all be removed from Government payroll, to start drawing salaries from their employer, PF.

  5. This drive to bribe people with bicycles and mealie meal….FTJ tried it, RB tried it. Where did that take them? Politicians never learn. Just do an honest job and you won’t have to go round bribing people.

  7. I don’t blame Mwila. He’s just doing his job over things he found. The problem is with everyone who drafted the constitution. What is the function of a DC??? Why are they party functionaries??? Can we all address this matter with the Justice Ministry as they spearhead the addressing the lacunas in the constitution!!

  9. I quote, “district commissioners are appointed at the recommendation of the district and provincial party officials”. This position is the senior most at district level and should be occupied by a technocrat who has experience in public service. Alas in Zambia even people with just a grade 12 certificate are given this position at the expense of well qualified and educated people at the district level. The end result are serious quarrells and passive resistance and no development.
