  1. Why do you accept promotions on political grounds? Soon someone is going out and that means that you go with him or else work as though you are in opposition

  2. This is a very powerful appointment and I have all the confidence in you sir.

    All those making fun of his last name remember that your leaders name is hichilema HichinyeIe

  3. How can you move forward when you always appoint from within …look at Zamtel, Zesco its always that the same rot rising to the top.

  4. The Road Development Agency (RDA) board had suspended chief executive officer Elias Mwape and director for Human Capital Elias Mwila for abuse of office back in June 2020 to date we have not heard anything in the courts, one can only conclude political involvement. Now you appoint any one from within…these are corrupt boards who are composed of cadres who just want continue lining their pockets.

  5. Tarino sorry we didn’t appoint your dull father or your tribesmen. We know that is the only way you would be satisfied with any appointment

  6. Congrats George Manyele on your new appointments as Director and CEO of RDA. This brings freshness to the badly managed RDA since the days of KMB boy late Nsanda who managed RDA from statehouse laden with toxic corruption. Mr George Manyele as a professional will create a departure from the culture of corrupt tendency that has let down Zambians on the quality of service delivery in road construction.
    Well deserved promotion and prove to Zambians expectations.

  7. It’s extremely bad manners to make fun of another citizen’s family name. That’s the name that links him to a family in Zambia. It doesn’t always have to be a name familiar to u.
