    • So whn u were appointed,it was on tribal basis?
      this is employment,if one has the qualification,he or she can get the job irrespective of tribe!Chikopo iwe

    • He is educated, and qualified, unlike you who, like in everyone else in Jonathan Mutawire aka Edgar Lungu aka Meno-Meno’s government, who was appointed strictly on the basis tribalism, and then looted the country and left it in an inescapable debt trap. The reason why we know that you are an angry, envious, uneducated and unqualified tribalist is that you do not even know that a Lozi is NOT a member of the “Bantu Botatwe” (not Batatwe)… and that is all I am gonna say

    • What is the qualification required to serve your nation? Last I checked not even the presidency has an academic requirement above a g12. So go and eff yourself. Fuseke

    • That is why you looted the and raped our country. You are too stupid to realise that in order to perform, you have to understand, in order to understand, you have to learn; to learn is to be educated. You, a kaponya, should not have been anywhere near power. You and your kaponya president, the tribalist who stole k40, 000 from his client and got disbarred by the law association of Zambia for, thought that running Zambia was like being the conductor and driver of a minibus, where you could steal from owner everyday. You should be in jail for what you did

  1. Nalishebo is a solid guy. I worked with him on a number of assignments including ZHDR. Well-done and congratulations.

    • He would never be hired in PF because his first and last name are both wrong; they are not Mwansa, Musonda, Chileshe, Phiri, Banda, Zulu as an example, and that is why Kaizar Zulu is so angry that he EARNED this position

    • Nega nega is that the reason why those names you have listed have not been employed in this role? Good to know how appointments are made under hh. Very tribal dogs

    • Kazar Zulu, the names I mentioned are just examples. In your government, all the appointments were of people from two regions. If you were from the South, Central, the West or the Northwest, you were not being hired a primary school teacher, never mind as a government minister. Therefore everyone there was named Zulu, Phiri, Chanda, Mwewa, Chishimba, Chilese… that is the reality of PF, YOU WERE AND ARE Tribalists. We have to say this because it can never again be the way our government is run. HH has hired the most tribally balanced governnment since Kaunda. This is why all of you are so angry. This is why all you cry when he fires the incompetents he hired.
