President Hichilema Makes Changes to Service Commissions and DEC


President Hakainde Hichilema has made changes to various Service Commissions and the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC).

President Hichilema appointed Choolwe Beyani as Chairperson of the Civil Service Commission. Additionally, Rodrick Chewe and Ms. Gladys Phiri Selemani Tavaris were appointed as members of the commission.

Moreover, President Hichilema transferred Mr. Mwamba Peni from the Emoluments Commission to the Cabinet Office as Permanent Secretary Special Duties.

Furthermore, the Head of State appointed Beatrice Liluya Mpanga as Deputy Director General of the Drug Enforcement Commission.

Other appointments include Akalamwa Sumbwa as a member of the Local Government Service Commission and Ronald Hichibulo as a member of the Teaching Service Commission.

Antoneill Mutenthwa was appointed as a member of the Police Service Commission, while Felix Ngoma was appointed as a Commissioner at the Police Public Complaints Commission.

Meanwhile, President Hichilema transferred Tom Silwindi from the Correctional Service Commission to the Police Service Commission and Simon Kabanda from the Police Service Commission to the Correctional Service Commission, both in their capacities as Commissioners.

This is according to a statement issued to the media by Chief Communications Specialist at State House, Clayson Hamasaka.


  1. Job creation is in commisioners. How much free salaries do they get these uselesses?
    And HH didn’t throw away Clayson WtDog Hamasa. He has a right name.

    • Stop trying to misrepresent me. I never said this nonsense. My Tonga uncle does not need your employment. My Tonga uncle is self-employed, feeding you maize and the beef you would not know were it not for him. But if he wants employment, he has a fair opportunity under HH, unlike the case was with Michael Satan, Bwezani, Edna Lungu and Frederick Chipuba where all the jobs were reserved for Bembas and Nyanjas.

  2. We thank our able leader for these changes His Excellence Hakainde Hichilema, CDF, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces

  3. Glad that Peni boy has gone to a nothing job just like all those other PS sitting idle reading newspapers drinking mugs of coffee and driving posh cars….

  4. The Ministry of Special Duties has 406 senior civil servants receiving salaries for doing nothing. While Edgar put cadres on the Zesco payroll, this one is piling them up at Cabinet Office. If you through a stone into Cabinet Office, 98% chance is that it’ll land on someone awaiting redeployment.
