  3. It seems Mr Bwalya has experience and qualifications. This is the way to go, no more party cadres in parastatal companies. Of course it is BQA (Bally Qualities Always)

  4. Ba Engineer, ekalupato mwakwata pali Chagwa?? Nimwe ba upnd cadre. Now we shall treat your comments as they should be treated!!

  5. Ahmmmn, I would have preferred a forester or a natural resources manager to run ZAFFICO as CEO. That fellow will be lied to all the time about when to plant & harvest timber. Disease & fire controls. Or general expansion of the plantations. He’s background also is more into mining. I see problems.
