  1. In my opinion, UPND already had a cabinet in waiting. But the problem of voting along tribal party lines means majority MPs are from one tribe. Cabinet ministers are appointed from ruling party MPs. However, Hon Kambwili put a spanner in the works by exposing to the nation the tribal voting patterns of UPND. Appointing a majority Tonga cabinet from majority Tonga UPND MPs will prove him right. So the problem causing the delay in appointing a cabinet is how do you only appoint a cabinet from the majority Tonga MPs and the remaining from the two affiliated strongholds? It means long-standing members will have to be left out causing dissent. It’s a tricky situation.

  2. Government of lies and rumors….looks like we are in for a rough 5 years with HH and his minions…
    Spaka and Tarino Orange don’t you miss Lungu yet

  3. What’s so hard about announcing? Felix mutati, Charles Milupi etc. Forget about tribal balance- people just voted for more jobs, Mr. Lazy!

  4. Don’t rush the president. This is not a PF government which did things without thinking. Our president is a good decision maker. So take a chill pill.

  5. What impact is this having on govt business? Surely he must have had an idea as to whom will get what portfolio even before the election? Not very impressive at all
    Bally has been off to a very poor start in my opinion.

  6. Hichilema’s enemies and detractors on LT and in PF party want him to make rush decisions so they can pounce and savagely attack him.

  7. Mr President Zambians are in a hurry so start the ball rolling with announcement of
    Cabinet.This rumour is telling you just that.
    Bally start showing you are in control and
    Move quickly with actions before they start
    Loosing hope.

  9. NOTHING OF VALUE TO ANNOUNCE AS USUAL. JUST SHOWING ANOTHER PAIR OF BALLY GLOVES. MAYBE A SPIN ON KK’s Handkerchief.

  10. We want a working Govt. They won the election 3 weeks ago and we haven’t got a Govt up to now.
    This Bally mentality is taking us nowhere. This fella is going nowhere and talking too much without delivering anything.
    Now, he is sending that small boy Bwalya to put up a poster ati he there is no evening presser!
    So what are we going to do? Even a bad Govt like Lungu’s Govt is better than having no Govt at all. Policy decisions on many issues are wanting but Hakainde ain’t gonna give us one. This one ni one term Govt if it goes on like this; this not what we voted for.

  11. Bally is still excited about winning the election without knowing what to do with it. His inexperience is so obvious that he can’t even form a Cabinet within 3 weeks. He probably needs 2 months.
    This fella is going nowhere and now totally lost in the Govt protocols. He surely needs a crushed course from the veteran VJ.

  12. He didn’t expect to win the general elections nor did he expect to have so many MPs. Hence the confusion, he doesn’t know whom to choose.

    That’s the problem of being a strong believer in yourself only, running the show alone and creating fear in everyone surrounding you.

    Look at his MPs, they are all quiet because they fear his heavy handedness.

  13. To be honest, I don’t think we are waiting for any miracles to happen. The cabinet will be more of ours than theirs

  14. @Ayatollah … hardly surprising that you do not recall our Visionless one having gone into some seclusion in Mfuwe, only being accessed by some shady characters, for at least one whole week, before announcing his first ever Cabinet.

  15. Speed kills.
    But still the president can’t be this slow when the whole world is in the fast trail lane.

    Mr. Hichilema, your cabinet however much long time you take, it still won’t be accepted by everyone. So get going. It’s a fast lane, sir.

  16. Munyati , Chilyata ,Moto ,Lazi et al small minded chaps what did 10yrs of PF rush decisions lead us to? High inflation,depreciated Kwacha,famous Eurobond default,depleted forex reserves…

  17. Our President His Excellency Hichilema Hakainde is a strong decision maker and so patient. He does not rush to act things like what others did. Have patience, he will do what we want as a Nation(Zambia). Not always complaining kwati you don’t eat??

  18. Hahaha ,inconsistent Mulongoti Machayi contradicting himself.Ati “speed kills” and then “It’s a fast lane, sir” . HH shouldn’t listen to such ill advice from fence sitters ,equivocators,prevaricators like Machayi .You’re accusing HH of indecision while displaying the same trait…hypocrisy.

  19. Ayatollah – The man without a vision announced cabinet in good time because he just picked his drinking friends full of useless chaps, bench warmers and empty suits like Chitotela, Davis Chama, Jean Kapata,Joyce Nonde Simukoko and we can not forget the wanker David Mabumba

  22. This president must be very dull or a time waster why keep the whole nation in anxiety, for three weeks is this how you are going to rule this nation.
    We thought you were going to do a better job but kuwayawafye badala.
    Come on being president is not a joke nor jokers .
    Zambians are eager to see your capacity to drive to higher hights, but to the look of things we doubt it all.
    That is what kaponyas do in the streets do when they want to con you.
    They take in all directions until you are frustrated.

  23. Bally, ensure that you do away with PF boards, and CEOs especially appointed by Chilufya. They are full of PF chaps who can frustrate your efforts.
