Speaking when he held a meeting with civil servants at the District Administration Boardroom yesterday, Mr. Muswema reminded civil servants to remember their mandate to work with the government of the day and to execute their duties accordingly.

  4. The same DCs were in the forefront of being partisan. Just abolish that position. It was never there during unip and FTJ just introduced it to give jobs to cadres who were left out of appointments and wanted rewards. They have no job description even.

  9. The PF left because of stubbornness. If the UPND want to remain at the top, they must learn to listed: and listen very carefully. The best advice comes from the unexpected sources.
    Lawlessness is emanating from UPND supporters who are venting their frustration on PF for the perceived previous govt’s iron handedness. Denying this won’t help UPND in any way.

  10. The police service needs to be equipped and left to be professional as they execute their services. The president must completely stay away and not interfere. Political caderism must be banned completely it has a lot of disadvantages to the Nation and breeds divisions of the worst order. I do not want to be scared to criticise the ruling party or even wear a branded t-shirt for the opposition for fear of being attacked and brutalised. What we saw and experienced under the PF regime must come to an end for the sake of a safe Zambia,

  11. PF yalala yalala! We told you that PF party was going nowhere. Where is PF today?

    Michael Sata must be crazy about Edgar Lungu in his grave for destroying the party he labored.

    Bally is fixing everything and whatever was broken will be fixed.

    Zambia Forward!
