Ministry of Information and Media says new Government has scored various successes in 100 days

General News Ministry of Information and Media says new Government has scored various successes...

The government says the New Dawn Administration has scored various successes in its 100 days in office.

Chief Government Spokesperson CHUSHI KASANDA says the UPND government has demonstrated its commitment to the rule of law by freeing the governance and oversight institutions such as the Anti-Corruption Commission, from political instruction and interference

Ms. KASANDA adds that the government has also restored the reportorial and editorial independence of the media, the safety of journalists in radio stations and other media houses around the country who were constant victims of violent attacks by party cadre
under the previous Government.

She has stated that government has also been highly facilitative and supportive of the media’s efforts to come up with a self-regulatory mechanism aimed at strengthening their profession.

On Human rights, Ms. KASANDA says government within the first 100 days has also ensured that police harassment against people who hold divergent views is addressed.

She says government has also ensured that there are no arrests without investigation, no unwarranted use of teargas by police against citizens and No use of excessive force by police recorded against citizens expressing themselves.

Ms. KASANDA who is also Information and Media Minister says public service workers who were retired on the basis of tribe and other unfair considerations have been asked to state their case and be considered for reinstatement.

On the deadly Covid-19, the Minister says the fight against the pandemic has been one of Government’s major pre-occupations during the 100 days in office.

She cites interventions such as re-launch of the vaccination campaign on October 6 by President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA to encourage members of the public to get vaccinated in view of the imminent 4th wave and mobilization of 1-point 6 million doses of Covid-19
accines during his visit to the United States of America in September as among the successes.

Ms. KASANDA said this in a statement to ZNBC News in Lusaka this evening.

She also noted the sealing of leakages in the procurement process, getting rid of cadres in markets, correcting imbalances in the Farmer Input Support Programme, and strengthening of land administration by implementing land reforms, land audits, land survey
, land mapping and property boundary demarcation as among the successes scored in the 100 days.

The minister further said government, under the leadership of President HICHILEMA has hit the ground running in delivering development to citizens and pledged making the country a better place for all.

    • She is very sharp and very okay. Of course she is measured as well showing maturity for a government spokesperson, can this propaganda against her stop, us Zambians who voted for change are very okay with her, a breath of fresh air actually

  2. The ACC is being mentioned, but none of the PF corrupt thieving bozos have been arrested, including Edgar China Lungu. Police roadblocks still demand money during nighttime. The Kwacha has continuously depreciated since election day. Cooking oil is even more expensive now than before the election. Loadshedding is worse now than it has been for years. You want me to go on???

  4. No arrests without investigation? What happened to Davis Chama? The minister of Home Affairs was silent about it, despite being a lawyer of many years at the bar, and so was the minister of Justice.
    Independence of ACC? Didn’t the President announce there would be ‘a big asset recovery’ within a few days, and ACC announced the forfeiture of the 65 million? (Without conclusively establishing where that money came from?). ACC was instructed to simply close that case, by whom?
    Also, ACC has not arrested any one person for corruption, not one!
    Covid response is based on copy and paste and not medical knowledge that makes sense in our country.
    Alas, there are some positives, but not a very good start.

  5. The only remarkable achievement he has made is to convince Zambians is that the only perfect people are in three provinces and deserve to be awarded and it has happened.
    And that the seven other provinces are clique of thieves who must be punished and their parliament seats nullified because they were ill gotten, and those in the three provinces were rightly earn in transparent manner and must be retained.
    He has managed to create hatred for people from the seven provinces and it is working for him.

  6. Another achievement is if you failed to perform in PF and was sacked if you were from the three provinces you are recalled back, namely Kajoba, Kalyalya, Moonga, and Musokotwane to a few.
    I will end here for now.

  7. Only rejected PF Party members, UPNDs competitors in the last elections, and haters are not seeing the successes of the UPND government, us Zambians are seeing the successes distinctly clear

  8. It is a fact that the damage done by the PF was excessively high, it will be naïve for any reasonable being to think change can come in 100 days, the good thing is that the UPND pronouncements so far are pointing in the right direction.

  9. The constitutional mandate is five years, stop this 100 days issue which is not even constitutional, let UPND do its work please, what 100 days, such things don’t exist. Wait and see, already you can see positive direction, are you being harassed by cadres in bus stops in markets and bus stops anymore. IN 100 days civil liberties and peace are returning, which is the most important thing

  10. @Kaizar Zulu – The only good attributes you seem to appreciate in women are of a sexual nature. Most women that feature on this forum, are either your former bed mates, or you know well enough to patronize! I think this is wrong and just makes you appear to be a misogynist! Belittling women’s achievements
    because of their gender, is completely unacceptable in this day and age! Please don’t do it. Thank you.

  11. I havent heard her talking but what I read about her press conferences doesnt sound bad. It sounds better than Dora and Kambwili who were always fighting someone . I f not fighting The opposition then they are warning journalists. These guys so far havent been wagging fingers at journalists. Im sure journalists are happier now than before. Citizens would just love to hear the president repealing the presidential defamation criminal law and t also show via policy enactments.the entire nation that governance and oversight institutions such as the Anti-Corruption Commission, have been freed from interference. If you dont show the evidence its like you are merely hiding your whips to bring them out at a time when the said institutions misbehave.

  12. Don’t blow your own trumpet let the people judge for themselves what you have achieved and where you have failed.

  13. Zennia since when did telling the truth equate to being misogynist? Go and shove a tree up your shani shani and leave me alone

  14. Yep – you too leave the women alone! Do you have a wife…imagine how she must feel every time you claim to have accomplished your evil ways with other women? Respect please.
