DEDUCT my salary starting this month in support of President Edgar Lungu’s call for senior government officials to sacrifice part of their perks, Minister of Lands and Natural Resources Jean Kapata has said.

Ms Kapata said there was need for patriotic Zambians to die a little for the good of the economy.

She said in an interview that the deducted funds would help cushion the poor against the increased prices of essential commodities.

Ms Kapata said Government should effect the Presidential directive to cut salaries immediately and that she was ready to surrender a chunk of her salary even this month.

“I want to support President in the salary deduction and I also offer my deduction starting this month because it’s for a good cause and money should be directed or given to the poor especially women,” he said.

Ms Kapata called on Zambians not to politicize the President’s directive as he had the plight of Zambians at heart.

“I am of the Catholic faith and my church teaches that we give alms to the less privileged so the presidential pronouncement is timely and I thank the President for this good gesture,” she said.

Ms Kapata also wished Zambians a blessed new year, saying that God would favour Zambia in all its endeavours.

    • This minister and his boss are front line corrupt leaders.

      Now they want others to start engaging in corrupt activities to make up the difference in salary.

      Please reject this request by these thieves.

      Things keep getting worse and we have not even started repaying debt.

    • Jean is clear, she is in support of her president and not her mandevu women dancers.
      I wish she could also withdraw 20% from her Mukula account to buy electric chainsaws, for villagers cutting her Mukula logs, their hands are bleeding from using axes!!

    • The Mukula Madam your catholic faith doesn’t teach you to steal from the poor…just remember that all that $180 million Mukula export to China had this woman’s signature.

    • It is not the only thing we’ll be cutting. We will cut the mukula fat bank account too. There is no escaping the wrath of the people come 2021 trust us on that one. Enough is enough.

  1. Mrs Jean Kapata, where’s your letter to the Secretary to Cabinet stipulating that this starts immediately in January 2020? If there’s no such letter, this is just for newspaper headlines.

    • Nemwine, this is proper chipantepante,i thought it was a directive since the exited PS was fired for saying it is voluntary, now here comes Mrs Mukula volunteering, we are in problems,this government is not even fit to run a nursary

  2. But madame, you have an alternative source of income via Mukula tree scams. The people you want to submit to this salary reduction have their salary as sole income.

    Do you want them to find alternative source of income like you? Or Lungu?

    Just stop these jokes already madame.

    You should have left this behaviour in 2019.

  3. This government was advised to stop reckless borrowing. And what did you call the people that advised you? Lunatics? Some say Yes, they were called Lunatics!

  4. Someone say Yes, they were called Lunatics! Yet these were well meaning citizens with the future of Zambia at heart. Let’s see how much these salary cuts will yield for the first Euro bond bullet payment due in 2022. It makes me shudder to realise we are being led by such.

  5. Mama Mukula, your salary will be properly cut after your Drunken Corrupt party is no more, & you are safely where you belong -Pr!s0n!
    Isabel Do Santos of Angola is currently being taken to task for her role in State Plunder /abuse of office.
    What more iwe, & your Princess [email protected]!la Mukula the first?

  6. I sense cabinet entire is not in agreement with President Lungu. Pandemonium as entropy increases, ministers engage in individual commitment to appease Edgar. Jean hide your face. The more this face appear in media the more PF gets humiliated. SG ask some of these mukula associates not to appear in media!
    Calamity!

  7. “Ms Kapata said there was need for patriotic Zambians to die a little for the good of the economy.”
    These words should be directed to every MP, and national assemble big Whip.
    Ordinary Zambians have been sacrificing from independence, that is a fact and not even an opinion. From the Kaunda’s UNIP and ANC days, citizens have always been patriotic. High ranking government officials have not.

  8. This is insulting the collective intelligence of the Zambian people.Your alms to the Zambian cant develop us.This strategy is cheap and purely political

    • And it proves that these people live extravagantly. For someone to sacrifice part of their salary means they have got other bigger sources of income

  9. No Jean Kapata, No. It is not right and not the best thing to sacrifice part of your salary. You work for that money and you deserve to be paid in full.The right thing is for you and fellow Ministers to start paying back the salaries and allowances you got during your illegal stay in office in those 3 months in 2016.

  10. And when are you going to pay back the Zambians the proceeds of crime you got from the illegal sale of mukula trees?

  11. This does not make sense. There is a court order that these goo.ns pay back the money they fraudulately got when they stayed in office illegally and they have all refused to pay back. Now whats this so-called presidential order. Just keep your salary madam and stop fooling us.
    Disaster!!!

  12. Such a shame to have this country reduced to this level of collecting money to take care of the less privileged. A thinking government comes up with more concerted measures for taking care of its people. The mediocrity of this leadership is stifling! The miserly “donations” from a leadership that has stolen millions from its own people is an insult and a stupid joke. And she mentions belonging to the catholic church as a way to placate herself from the thieving? Jean, have no shame?

  13. Yes mom. It’s good to know you are in support of your president and not in support of your electorate. Nice!

  14. Here is another Gladys Nyirongo on a grand and stupendous scale. Can she fit through the current narrow prison doors? I doubt it, may need to expand the doors.

  15. Can you also as a patriotic Zambian transfer all proceeds of your Mukula smuggling to the state confers and vow to never engage in the trade of it. Viva patriotism viva!

  16. So Jean Kapata has confirmed that the salary cut is voluntary, is she gonna be fired like Chand Kasolo for contradicting President Lungu? Or there two laws in Zambia?

  17. The pf was formed on the ethos of being pro poor people and sacrificing for the better good of the nation. This gesture by jean only goes to prove that pf is a working party that has the nation’s interest at heart. Well done my sister. We hope more will emulate including opposition Mps.

    • @Kaizar Zulu ©
      What logic framework did you use to draw such a rationale in your dry comment! I thought PF manifesto is about building systems which ultimately contribute to social security and more money in the pockets.

    • Luapula boy by us in pf sacrificing our salaries, we can channel this extra cash towards social security for the poor in our society. If you need me to explain further please do not hesitate to contract me .kz

  18. Your action to publicly declare and comply your salary reduction to please Edgar Chagwa Lungu will still not extricate you from Mukula tree theft case, Zambians will not forget.

  19. First of all pay the wages you got when you illegally overstayed in cabinet as a fake minister after parliament was last dissolved. Then ,and only then we will know that you mean well for the poor people of Kabompo who have never ever seen tap water coming from the tap or have any chance of it happening under the leadership of your [email protected] the Swaziland mansion landlord.

    • @Kongola, looks like, bro! That is why the twat has grown muy grande kohones and thinks he is doing great PR. To the contrary, KZ, we can hardly wait to see them shrink…

    • Haha you guys give me the giggles. To set the record straight I have not been offered a job in the diplomatic field. Far from that. I am ever so close to our humble leader EC Lungu. I believe the British flag is what has led you to wrongly deduce my location. I have always used a British server to communicate on public profiles for security reasons. I am very much in Zambia and my home is open to all those that want to discuss constructive issues with me and our party. Remember 2021 is not far. I am very busy strategizing on the ground to ensure uwr another pf success. Pawbato. Kz

  20. @KZ, confirming what we already know. You make such glaring mistakes, you are removed and you are still close to Mukula Chagwa!?! Great! Keep those jewels coming!

  21. Strategizing another Chavula who has never seen the inside of the court to explain who gave him access to the ECZ computer protected zone .Where is he anyway because he allegedly arrested by the PF police .?

  22. Strategizing another Chavula who has never seen the inside of the court to explain who gave him access to the ECZ computer protected zone .Where is he anyway because he was allegedly arrested by the PF police .?

    • That is a matter for the police authorities. Why don’t you ask them? If someone breaks into your house are you going to ask pf what happened to him?

  23. From a nurse crying for night shifts in order to balance up expenses to a donor of a salary to the less privileged in society, all in a spate of less than 10years….Bantu ba beula ngati mu government…. So teti lomba bankala ba salary donor….

  24. That’s your Jean Mukula Kapata. Now she is showing you that she has stolen enough and is not afraid to show it to you. “What are you gonna do about it?”

    • The problem with 5 time election losers is that they see negativity in everything. Why can’t the opposition MPs follow suit and reduce their salaries also ? Jean was not obliged to do so. What have you done yourself to help the poor ? Let us appreciate when people are selfless. Kz

    • Look who’s talking about helping the poor!
      I know for a fact that I have not stolen from the poor, I have not been firing shots at the poor, I have not instructed the police to lock up the poor, I have not beaten up the poor victims of my “reckless driving” etc etc….

  25. Ba Kaizar na PF yenu i can assure u 4 sure that u can fool people 4 some time but u cant fool people all the time. The Zambian people Know that they entrusted their Country in wrong hands people are suffering and their is no one who is even showing concern in finding tangible
    solutions to help people all u are doing is playing politics and mocking people all the time. All the time playing blame game while u are the ones in power wat a shame sure tamumfwa nensoni sure. One thing i know for sure is that wat goes round comes round. From the time of DR Kaunda their has never been a time wen Zambia,s reputation has drastically dropped like the way its dropped under PF and Zambia has never had a leadership thats too playful full of comedy, unclear policy directives, like this regime under PF…

  26. Why doesn’t Lungu cut his salary first.Then after a few months ask others to cut their salary.Peter Carlos Hinds.

    • I WOULD RATHER YOU KEPT YOUR SALARIES AND DID YOUR JOBS TO PUT THE ECONOMY BACK ON TRACK THAT’S THE JOB DESCRIPTION. HERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR CUT 20% OF MY SALARY TO SHOW SACRIFICE FIRST OF ALL YOU DON’T FEEL THE PINCH BECAUSE YOUR SALARY AFTER YOU DEDUCT 20% IS STILL IN THE MILLIONS OR HUNDRED THOUSANDS. YOU WANT TO SHOW PATRIOTISM SET THE SALARY AT K10000 AND REMOVE ALL THE PERKS OF FREE FUEL FREE FOOD AND ALL THEPRIVILEGES YOU ARE GETTING. WHEN IN THE DRIVERS SIT YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF THE CAR AND WHERE IT GOES YOUR DON’T MAKE WRONG TURN AND CONTINUE ON THE PATH AND SAY SORRY FOR INCONVENIENCE BUT TO SHOW I’M SORRY GOING TO CUT MY SALARY. BEST SOLUTION GET THE CAR BACK ON TRACK OR THE PASSENGERS NEED TO CHANGE THE DRIVER

  27. This is an era of economic growth.I think the whole idea of a salary cut is irrelevant.Peter Carlos Hinds.

  28. You have a well known dumb thug pretending to be a normal person and trying to defend PF misdeeds here.
    Surely is this the best representative Lungu and PF can give us here?

  29. THIS IS TOTAL NONSENSE FROM JEAN AND HER BOSS! THIS IS THE LAST NAIL IN THE COFFIN FOR YOU TO BE REMOVED IN 2021! THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN COME AND SAVE ZAMBIANS FROM THIS NONSENSE AND GREED IS PANJI KAUNDA, ALL THE OTHER POLITICIANS ARE JUST USELESS AND BELOW EXPECTATIONS! PLEASE PANJI FORM A PARTY AND YOU WILL SEE HOW IT GROW LIKE WILD FIRE!

  30. WHEN YOU FRUSTRATE CIVIL SERVANTS LIKE EDGAR LUNGU IS DOING NOW HE THINKS THEY ARE STUPID, BUT THESES ARE THE PEOPLE WHO CAN EASILY BRING DOWN A GOVERNMENT! THEY ARE JUST TALKING QUIETLY, BUT WHEN TIME TO ACT COMES ITS LIKE A TSUNAMI! AND LUNGU SHOULD NOT SURPRISED!

  31. Its too early to start fooling people in 2020. Such behaviour should have been left in 2019. It just show how uncaring these pf thugs are. What difference does it make!!! Who benefits from such rhetorics. We are tired of insults from these pf crooks.
    Disaster!!!

  32. @Kaizar Zulu.. Loosing elections 5 times is a test for authenticity. Mr Sata’s persistence (MHSRIP) is what made him Zambians to trust him to lead the country despite the unfair treatment by MMD at the time. HH in my view is the only person who is ready and deserves to lead this nation to prosperity. He has also demonstrated this consistency in his business life. The same can not be said about Edgar Lungu who was an opportunist and has never been tested for authenticity. The only thing protecting him is the OFFICE of the president. Strip away the office and reality will dawn. Let me educate you sir.. Failure is the secret to success! Ask Thomas Edison “When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an…

  33. Cont.. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” “Great success is built on failure, frustration, even catastrophy.”

  34. @Kaizar Zulu..Let me educate you sir.. Failure is the secret to success!

The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” “Great success is built on failure, frustration, even catastrophy.”
    Be aware that the truth about Mukula,underhand payments, land sales etc will be uncovered. I am afraid that a lot of people are headed to prison.

    Madam Kapata, people are not going to sacrifice for your incompetence. You cannot borrow yourself to success. You need a strategy given that Zambia is endowed with a lot of resources and it is unacceptable in 2020 that Zambia is listed as one of the poorest countries in the word. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  35. Ba HH? Not him hes just a crook that one, and hows he going to win with tribal support! That one is just a day dreamer! We want a clean person, Panji Kaunda. HH is already a well known thief of Privatization of public companies during Chiluba era. In addition to all this, HH is just too dull to lead a country!

  36. KZ , I would rather stick pins in my eyes than waste my time asking the PF police who act on political directives from the likes of yourself and [email protected] instead of being lead by evidence of crime .Why are you still using UK servers paid for by tax payers when you are supposed to have been fired ? The people of Chavuma need to use the money you are wasting on UK servers to build water treatment plants so that they can start enjoying tap water. Pro poor KZ …tell us , when are the people of Chavuma going to get tap water like you have got at your so many houses ?
