I Gladly Accepted the Job, says New Finance Minister

“I got a phone call yesterday when I was preparing to go to Church. When I picked up, the President said ‘this is President Lungu’. I thought it was a prank but when I listened carefully, it sounded like him. He asked to see me and I came to State House, he offered me the job and I gladly accepted it,” said Dr Ng’andu who replaces Margaret Mwanakatwe, the Lusaka Central Member of Parliament.

    It’s a lie the president arrived in the evening from luapula, he attended church service there only arrived around 19:00.

      Boss, Presidents can call from any where including the sky

    How many ministers are we going to change in order to better the economy ? Only God knows when things can improve , it would appear there is a problem to find someone qualified enough for the job!! Or maybe there is need to consult the retired leaders like Dr Magande before it is too late?

    Accepting is one thing and performing is another!

    We need sober minded people to handle such position, those who are nt corrupt in their mind

    Its a good move Hon Mwanakatwe is a friend but i never thought she would manage the ministry of finance and i felt Mutati suited that ministry very well than Magret. Anyway congrats to the new minster, wishing well.

    You have been free of trouble, but you have gladly accepted to join the thieves, you have also gladly accepted not only to escort them to prison but also to spend the rest of your time with them right there.

    Countrymen and women, do you think the Minister of Finance will perform to our expectations when he is in the ” den of corrupt elites ?” Remember, one person can not fight a dozen. For our Economy to change we need more than one hardworking person. God help Zambia.
