PF says Zambians will have Final say on Deputy Ministers

Patriotic Front secretary general Davies Mwila has said the ruling Party will listen to the people on the National Dialogue Forum (NDF) proposal to reintroduce Deputy Ministers.

He was speaking when he welcomed former UPND vice-president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) to the Party secretariat this afternoon.

Responding to a question from journalists on whether the Party had u-turned on its position to scrap Deputy Ministers to save money,  Mwila assured Zambians that the ruling party will listen and do exactly what the people will say on the matter.

“On the question of reintroducing Deputy Ministers, the Patriotic Front will listen to the people. In the meantime, NDF is sitting and we’ll wait for the process to conclude but we’ll listen to the people,” said Mwila according to a statement issued by PF media director Sunday Chanda.

    No need we have PS as assistant ,think of expense even now some are still claiming their money some died leaving there money unclaimed .the economic is bitter why should we pay deputies who don’t even do the work just warming chairs.when this was removed they saw they had no work to be done by them

    Deputy ministers are elerevant as at now, cabinet ministers, provincial ministers and permanent secretaries can be carried out to run the government and it has been all the way up now without any problems and there is no crisis at all on having them.

    He should have said Zambians of Malawian origin will have a final say on the nonsense already known as nonsense.
