  1. Zampost and ZICTA being spit and urited on by even such an MP as Kafwaya?? I didn’t even know that Mutoto Kafwaya is a minister. But Zambia naipwa… Kafwaya ni minister?? No wonder…..

    • I don’t believe in such decisions. The board should hv a fixed term and left to get on with it without interruption. Dissolution suggests that the board members hv misconducted themselves and the Minister has to intervene to restore order. But then things like that are for normal countries.

    • In the history of Zambia each time a new minister is appointed he dissolves the board appointed by his predecessor. It is inconceivable that all these boards have been incompetent. These boards must be appointed in such a way that competent boards are allowed to continue with their work.

  2. Two more useless and failed parastatals that need to be shutdown. Parastatals do not create jobs but cadres unqualified for the required skill set. Shut them down as they add zero value to the economy.

    • Whn I sometimes argue that Britain granted independence too early, this is one of the reasons. You are deep in a crisis, those who should take responsibility think it’s your finest hour.

  3. Every time there is a ministerial reshuffle just know that the new minister will dissolve the board without giving any reason as to why he is undertaking it. Boards should have KPIs: I have a feeling most of these boards are picked by ministers to rubber-stamp their decisions and their looting. What are MPs doing in Parliament this wasteful mediocrity has to end, why did Brian Mushimba not dissolve this board? These ministers have to accountable, this is why these boards are filled with likes of Sunday Chandas, Paul Moongas and Antonia Mwanzas.
