Lusaka Province Minister, Bowman Lusambo has challenged Government Heads of Departments in both private and public institutions to work hard.

Mr. Lusambo said it is through hard work that can change the mindset of the people to effectively contribute to national development.

Mr. Lusambo stated that the positive contribution by departmental heads could help change the face of Lusaka and the nation as a whole.

ZANIS reports that Mr. Lusambo said this today when he featured on 5FM radio “Burning Issue” programme.

“Lusaka Province can be a shining example if we as leaders work hard. Then, other provinces can follow our path,” he said.

And Mr. Lusambo has reiterated his call to weed out what he termed as “bad eggs” from both the public and private sector.

The Minister notes that their still some people especially civil servants with a bad working culture in the Civil Service.

“There are still some bad and good eggs in both the private and public sector. To the good people, l must congratulate them but for bad eggs, please, watch out,’ he sounded.

Last month, the Lusaka Province Minister sent away over 40 civil servants at the Lusaka Provincial Administration for reporting late for work.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lusambo noted that government is determined to transform Lusaka province to becoming an economic hub.

He assured that roads in his region are being constructed, rehabilitated and maintained in order to open up and spur economic development in Chilanga, Chongwe, Chirundu, Kafue, Luangwa, Lusaka and Rufunsa districts.

The Minister also pledged to de-congest Lusaka through widening up some major roads in the city.

  1. MMD is really working. Mutati and Lusambo chasing on one side and Magie on the other. Where is Kampyongo for Lusambo to his job.

    • Lusambo is ok as Lusaka province minister, he knows all streets and all his former MMD youths.
      If only could walk into Miles office and make him dress in overalls that would be good for PF.

    He will be transferred again, just like Kambwili, Mutati, Kalaba, Chimese.

    • @Jay Jay, I agree with one part, we NEED REFORMS, POLICY REVIEWS BUT WE ALSO NEED CHANGE IN APPROACH AND MINDSET; a lot laws, disciplinary procedures, regulations exist but are NOT applied!! If we take the recent example of Police Officers caught receiving money (bribes or extortion) without receipts, WHERE HAS BEEN THE ENTIRE POLICE COMMAND, ACC and DEC TO CATCH AND DISCIPLINE ITS OWN STAFF ACCORDING TO GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SERVICE REGULATIONS??

    • Policies and reviews are in place, people are still beating the system, so this works in the interim as a deterrent.
      Thumbs up Bowman.

    • The Political Analyst – What reforms are in place when officers can disappear in the morning for 4 hours without anyone taking notice…why are officers handling cash and issuing receipts in the first place. Just imagine how much the Council and govt loses if officers can collect K2000 from 2 hours on an illegal roadblock.
      Moreover you can not carry out reforms with the same bad apples like Kakoma and his COs …you need an overall root and branch reforms to cleanse the whole system, then again with corrupt ministers overseeing all this its impossible.

    • zambiaisours – In Tanzania or Kenya they have a Special Unit of undercover officers tasked to root out these kinds of dirty cops but in Zambia we know that the officers were going to give a share of that to their boss back at Police Station and corruption is endemic . …am telling those officers were treated diplomatically as they were stealing its no different to a Shoprite worker who is stealing food or things from the shop or money at the till.

    • Mutulang’oma – again there you go with outdated thinking of the 60s …being a Labour minister is not about moving about inspecting every establishment and shown on camera its about policy implementation, modernizing the system.

    • The enforcement of policy can be done by minister from time to time. Minister of labour can ocassionaly visit companies to enforce compliance to labour laws. Sata and Kambwili did it, and consequently spoke with so much knowledge. So bwana JAY-JAY, its not an anomaly for minister to visit companies.

    • So Bowman will be at Ministry offices in the morning waiting for late comers, then rush to Kafue to check of late comers there…then drive around looking for illegal roadblocks… when Bowman or Mutati are transferred its back to square one..use your heads for once!!

  11. Silly Zambians praising Bowman for what, using his position to bully powerless citizens now we have lost a mother, wife and police Officer because of his use of public humiliation. 90 percent of the police force is corrupt right from the top. reason being that they get peanuts so how do we expect them not to accept bribes when their salaries are below living wage
