Fred M’membe calls on President Lungu to Immediately Fire all Corrupt Ministers and Permanent Secretaries

Headlines Fred M'membe calls on President Lungu to Immediately Fire all Corrupt...

Socialist Party President Fred M’membe has said that if President Edgar Lungu really wants to prove he is serious about tackling corruption, he must fire all ministers, permanent secretaries, and other public officials involved in corruption and financial malfeasance, and fast track their prosecutions.

In a statement released to the Media, Dr. M’membe said that Cabinet Ministers and all public representatives whose departments are implicated in acts of corruption and wasteful expenditure must be fired.

If President Edgar Lungu really wants to prove he is serious about tackling corruption, he must fire all ministers, permanent secretaries and other public officials involved in corruption and financial malfeasance, and fast track their prosecutions.

Dr. M’membe said that President Lungu must show decisive leadership and genuine commitment to addressing the corruption, maladministration, and incompetence that is stifling the performance of his government by firing ministers who are in breach of their oath of office.

Dr M’membe further said that dismissing Dr. Chitalu Chilufya from his post as Minister of Health was a positive thing, but it was not enough, adding that the president must now turn his attention to other corrupt ministers and other public officials who have betrayed their mandate to serve Zambians.

Dr M’membe accused the president that throughout his presidency he has always, shielded his appointees by turning a blind eye to their infractions, noting that money looted from the government has cost individuals, families, and communities dearly and has affected service delivery in some of Zambia’s poorest areas.

Dr M’embe said that the mass anarchy that has come to characterise President Lungu’s government must end as millions of Zambians’s lives and jobs depend upon it and that there is need for expeditious criminal prosecution of all the culprits

Dr M’membe concluded by saying that if President Lungu was serious about fighting corruption he must act now by closing the loopholes in the state tender system.

  1. That’s why you will never get a vote. In your mind it makes sense to change the entire cabinet for only 4 months before parliament is dissolved. These are the people who when given power waste money anyhow. Youe want on top of gratuity to be giving retirement packages for ministers who have only served 4 months. Socialism has always been silly anywhere

  3. Actually ECL needs to fire himself.
    He is part and parcel of the corruption being perpetrated by the ministers and secretaries he appointed.
    No way they are corrupt without him knowing

  4. Ba Edgar tabakwata sana amano, he should have appointed a woman as minister of health. He should have appointed Olipa Phiri, or one the embattled females in the name of Jean Kapata or Nkandu Luo. Are there no Indians who can help these PF?
    This is sad, can’t think of any human in PF who save people from COVID……

  5. Lungu only acted to save his butt , after those extrajudicial executions , people are in no mood for him and pf.

    If he had not been seen to act, his fate would have been sealed ……

    However , the sacking only buys lungu limited time…..

    He still needs to find , between now and july , about £500 million to bribe Zambians to vote for him…

  10. @Inonge Lubasi, is not the president work without any minister on dissolution of parliament? If he can work for 3 months without a cabinet, why cannot he with fat ugly corrupt ministers? Zambia is better off without fatafat ministers. Cheers Comrade M’membe.

  11. President elect Biden has invited President Hakainde on his swearing in ceremony on 20th January, the only politician invited from Zambia.
