Congratulations on your appointment
Is your Superstar Bowa going to reduce petrol and paraffin prices to K15 per liter tomorrow? or you will just pay him with “congratulations”. you Fvckers
Reynolds Bowa was running Petrotech Oil with his friend Dyson Mweene. This company is no longer in business. The last time I checked it had sold it petrol station in Chibombo to Mt Meru Petroleum. For him to chair the ERB board without a possible conflict of interest, it means he has to resign his board membership of CEC Plc if he has not done so already.

Sounds a knowledgeable fella.
Thank god they didn’t appoint that crook Johnston Chikwanda…he knew they were jobs coming starts writing articles everywhere!
Where is his PETROTECH OIL CORPORATION?
This is what I voted for. Competent people in right positions without looking at their surnames. This is the Zambia many of us wanted. A Zambia for all Zambians.
Congratulations Mr Gilbert Phiri. I wish you all the best in this new endeavour, as you apply your knowledge, experience and expertise, in the Energy Regulation Board.
Let’s hope this board will not just be a rubber stamp like it was in the previous government and it will actually be independent enough even to challenge some decisions of the appointing authority.
Thank the Lord that Johnstone Chikwanda wasn’t appointed – he has his fingers in everything: especially the till. Corrupt friend from Edgar China Lungu!
The real question is how independent the ERB is going to be, or will they just follow orders from state house like the previous board.
Congratulations Mr. Bowa on your appointment. I worked with ba Sir at Caltex Oil Head office and his performance was exemplary and he’s profoundly experienced he has a wide expertise in petroleum products and am of the strong belief that he’s going to perform wonders , he definitely has the abilities. He’s the reason why my vote is valid. I voted wisely.
