Appoint Expert Team To Help Root Out Opposition Loyalists, HH Told

Headlines Appoint Expert Team To Help Root Out Opposition Loyalists, HH Told

President Hakainde Hichilema is being urged to immediately assemble a team of experts to help him achieve his vision of governing the country.

Governance Activist Sam Zulu says a team of experts should be set up to help President Hichilema appoint credible and capable people to various positions key in governance.

Mr. Zulu says doing so will help the seemingly vacuum created by the lack of officers in certain positions such as Permanent Secretaries and Diplomats that were relieved of their duties after his ascendancy to Presidency.

He says the President should see this as a critical matter of urgency.

“While President Hakainde Hichilema means well in most of his policy pronouncements, he needs to assemble a team of experts, and this he must do and treat as a matter of urgency,” he notes.

Mr. Zulu says as a result of not appointing key authorities in public offices, some workers especially those in the civil service are being demotivated.

He says people voted for change to have opportunities for jobs and businesses from the United Party for National Development administration and keeping some of the loyal PF functionaries in the New Dawn government is unfair.

He notes that people lost trust in the then governing party Patriotic Front and hence the need to have fresh and new individuals take up from those that are known PF functionaries.

He has since advised President Hichilema to root out all bad elements in the civil service that are still aligned to the former governing party and would in turn make the President’s efforts to govern difficult.

He says the President should act immediately for the country to get on a smooth road to development without impediments.

  1. It’s waste of time. He already has a list of cadres that he wants to replace other cadres so why should he even waste time to appoint other cadres to advise which cadres to fire? Don’t think too much about non issues otherwise we’ll think that you’re not thinking. Can you make suggestions that make sense. Bally is in trouble, his sponsors are telling him what to do and now self appointed experts have assumed the role of advisors. Cadres have also an idea of what he should do and they want it done. Why do people even jostle to be President? It’s a lousy job

  2. We are in the mess Thanks to PF for denying Zambian people presidential debate. Now we are at state of affairs that is confused full of difficulties.

    You haven’t seen nothing yet with UPND administration I’m still upset about the UPND administration first trip to New York. Nobody should justify first UPND administration trip to New York, please you owe Zambian people apology. Wasting there one lifetime opportunity to make Real change.

  3. ALL governance positions should have checks and balances plus some non partisan positions.Yes you need some opposition watch in some places for Zambia’s best interests.

  4. I don’t think moles infiltrated the previous regime or where placed anywhere to frustrate the efforts of government but instead discontent amongst qualified civil servants grew against their cadre bosses who had completely no idea of how to run the affairs but plunder…we surely need a total clean up and lets install qualified people

  5. PF cadres drink cold water. All of y here. Do u think for a second that HH has no plan of governing? Think again. Cos u must be joking. Delaying to replace pf cadres is becos “ we fire , clean and hire”. In UPND we don’t fire & hire. Remember GBM when he was fired ? HH takes his time to hire again when he has fired cos he can do the job of a fired person.

    So how do you go about purging suspected PF stooges? Oh “open your mouth you speak like a PF, you are fired!”.
    Just need to put proper strategic planning in place and ensure it is implemented at all levels of govt.
    Ensure tangible, measurable outcomes and review them every 6 months… everyone should be answerable to someone, starting with the President to the toilet cleaner. Eliminate wastage like per diems, cars, allowances and secretaries. Let these people get to work and sweat – i.e. remove incompetence, laziness and corruption, you will be OK.

  11. It’s happening!!! Government by the UPND for the UPND.
    Non-UPND people now at risk of unemployment etc. A trigger for mass emigration and secondary brain drain.

  12. Pay heed to advice or head for the hills. PF is an entity full of scandalous characters. They used the taste and addictive ingredients of money to brainwash people including technocrats. These technocrats are still in high offices where they have mastered the art of corruption. If they are not gotten rid off, they will get even more sophisticated and frustrate efforts to cleanly move forward. They should all be taken to where they belong.

  13. This, sadly, is now turning into a witch-hunt. I know of some very professional and seasoned civil servants who were in service even before came into power who have been dismissed presumably because their surnames were linked to the so-called PF regions. I feel for those still hanging in there; they must be suffering from acute anxiety about their future.

  15. Just like the ” outsiders” felt marginalized by the PF regime, the dependants of these people you want fired will not take it well… and mind most of these dependants voted for Upnd which means more votes lost. Let’s break this vicious circle of revenge.
