    I think 💭 the changes are good but they must ensure that they put a right ✔️ person for that particular ministry and also those who are choosen should be accountable

  24. Winnipeg Nyirongo

    Exercising the duties of Presidency!!!!·Let these reshuffles work in the betterment of PF Government!!!! Otherwise, most of these Ministers are corrupt and they are thieves, hence turnishing the image of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu. Thanks, let them work well in their respective new positions!!!!!


    What about the labour ministor she is just holding a position of ministry for nothing, those are the people to be fired.How can someone pump huge sums of money in private company while the salary is K800 and she kept on sleeping in public office for nothing.Mr President Sir, if today u go round in different companies people are suffering just to get some penut, find someone who will understand people’s lives she is doing nothing out of all the ministors.

  26. Unknown person

  27. Maybin Mwelwa

    Mr President, Congratulations! You Are In The Right Direction By Making Those Changes. But
    Mr President…Sorry Maybe You Are Mistaken By Giving Us Prof.Nkandu Luo Has Minister Of Livestock And Fisheries. Do You Want Her To Close Fishing Forever Like She Did To CBU? No…No…No, Just Retire Her Before She Make Things Evening More Worse.

    Cries From Luapula Province.
