  1. Today the so called president wondered why coincil workers had not been paid. Now when this promise of Jobs was made, I said anyone can proclaim creating thousands of Jobs but it’s another issue paying those roles. So now you can have 11 000 Jobs by title but not get paid. You will eat your job titles haha

  2. Mbuzi Meeeeeee, Appreciate Zambians being employed by the current government neglected by PF regime. The fight against corruption has began to recover massive assets acquired through PF corruption in the country. Recovered assets to benefit all Zambians. In the mean time, world rankings puts president HH 5th best president in Africa. Hope you will respect the world assessment.

  3. It is drop in the ocean. Governments have been employing these numbers year in year only there have not been making media shows.

  4. @kci, propagating lies.
    Do not insult un employed teachers and health workers trained more than 10 years ago without jobs.

  5. The recruitment exercise going forward is ok. In terms statistics 12 candidates are competing for one position which is fair and if the exercise can be continued every year until a significant number is reached.
