Feature Politics PF appoint President Lungu's Daughter as Chairperson for Chawama Constituency

The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) in Lusaka Province has appointed Nkholoma ward 1 councillor Mrs Tasila Lungu Mwansa as it’s Chairperson for Chawama Constituency taking over from Mr Joseph Shanzi, commonly known as ‘Joe Katete’ who died last week after an illness.

Speaking during the Unveiling ceremony in Lusaka today, Mrs Mwansa said she will work with everyone to unite and grow the party in Chawama.

Mrs Mwansa said she accepted the appointment because of the love she has for the party and hopes to continue from where her predecessor left from.

She has however warned party members in Chawama Constituency against indiscipline and engaging in lawlessness as it has the potential of tarnishing the image of the party.

“Our members from Chawama let us love each other, let’s not allow indiscipline and lawlessness in the party, as Chairperson I will not allow it. We are not a violent political party. Let us also not allow the opposition to use the few people to destroy Chawama today,” she said.

Mrs Mwansa said her first task as Constituency Chairperson will be to mobilize the community and party members to get National Registration Cards (NRCs) and register to vote.
And PF Lusaka Province chairman Paul Moonga said Chawama is a Constituency that is close to the heart of the party President who is also the Republican President, Dr Edgar Chagwa Lungu as he served as Member of Parliament before he became President.

He encouraged Mrs Mwansa to work extra hard and serve the people of Chawama in order to grow the party.

Speaking at the same event, PF Lusaka district chairman Forbes Mufyaya said the party decided to appoint a new chairperson following the confusion which was reported in the Constituency following the death of Mr Shanzi.

He said the leadership vacancy after the death of Mr Shanzi had the potential to destabilize the party in the Constituency.

He said the party leadership in the Province settled for Mrs Lungu because of her experience working as a councillor in Nkoloma ward 1 of Chawama Constituency.

  1. To say the truth if the spirit of such was at the begining of 2016, l trust PF would have strived to stay but alas, its too late and people have decided to change the wave.

  3. The genesis of Bill 10 was an evil out come of the dialogue process which Zambians thought to mend when many were injured as a result of the worrisome and doubtful 2016 General elections.
    This animal came in to hijack the whole plan to hount Zambians. God is God and we still wait for this rotten leadership to give answers to un asked and asked questions of 2021 elections. UMULANDU TAUBOLA.
    WHETHER YOU HIDE YOURS SELVES IN THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER OR NOT ZAMBIANS SHALL ASK YOU TO EXPLAIN AFTER 2021.

  4. The end is near for Edgar Lungu and you will hear all sorts of things to please his family but they shall not succeed.

    PF must go!

  11. Spaka Zambia belongs to the Zambian people and not upnd diasporans like you who lost your citizenship after adopting your colonial masters one.

    The majority in Zambia decide who rules this nation. Over 4 times the people have rejected your demigod hh. Nothing is going to change because hh is arrogant and not saleable. Tasila understands hard work and starting from the bottom. Meanwhile the self entitled loser hh thinks he is too good to serve in any public office lower than the presidency. Watch him fail..he will be ruled by tasila one day

  12. This appointment fits very well into the symptoms of a first family on its way out. Potipher Tembo will make mince meet out of Tasila if she dares to contest the Chawama seat

  13. We need more young women in leadership…Look at Finland….! Am not against her being the chairperson, but for as long as they applied the right criteria to pick her am fine with it!

  14. Tasila,
    you went to America with your mother who married a white man who raised you and you adopted his name. you only came back to Zambiaonce your father become president dubiously . who voted for you ?your dad as usual imposed you, look at the sad faces of the people you are addressing. next year tamwakapite! enjoy this year , and the the forest you had fenced off, the mukluk trees. the courts will decide.

  15. flag Corruption scandals: 48 Houses Social Security Cash Luxury Presidential Jet Ambulances Fire Trucks Mukula Trees Ndola-Lusaka Rd Malawi Maizegate Fuelgate Swaziland landgate Zesco Loans

    Nepotism! It’s the perception of it and it’s not good at all.
    She’s a carbon copy of her father… wow!

  16. These Muppets think this is North Korea. We won’t allow dynasties in Zambia the country that showed Africa how to remove a president from power without killing him.

  17. Do you think if she wasn’t the presidents daughter she had even the remotest chance of being appointed? Of course not!!! Purely politics of appeasement and nepotism at work.

  18. Bad decision, if u ask me. Paul Moonga wants to save his position ahead of Lusaka Province convention. This will mess up the votes in Chawama big time. This is politics

  19. I think she has done well before in faciltating for the upgrading of a playground for the local community . She might wow possible investors to do some other projects for the benefit of the greater chawama constituency .
    Lets give her chance and support.

  20. just the look of the faces surrounding her says a lot, did she get the position because she earned it or because her dad used his influence? wako ni wako? nepotism and dictatorship? i hoe such thinks won’t happen next year
