President Edgar Lungu has sprung to the defence of newly appointed Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe that her detractors will thank him for that decision later. He said that even his ascendancy to the Presidency had people bent on scandalizing him as a drunkard but has since proved his critics wrong. President Lungu said he was shocked some critics had gone as far as creating turbulences in the market just to prove that Mwanakatwe was not the right choice for the position of Finance Minister. “Before I became President there were people who said that Lungu is a drunkard he can’t do anything. So I would encourage her to just work hard,†he said. “When you reshuffle cabinet the way I did, there is bound to be turbulences, politically, economically. I feel sorry for her because people are saying so many poor things about her. I can only encourage her to work hard, she is equal to the task, and I have no doubt.†President Lungu relinquished Felix Mutati of the finance portfolio and appointed Mwanakatwe with some forces resisting her appointment.

Please post for me Can the minister of higher education Professor Nkandu Luo just come out openly and tell us the truth behind the closure of UNZA and CBU unlike these lies we’re getting from her. If indeed she really care about our plight why didn’t she start these renovations the moment she just took up that ministerial post. It’s so painful to play with our emotions and be taken granted ;today you say UNZA will reopen before the month ends the next day we hear you on radio saying UNZA won’t open as scheduled due to poor sanitation. C’mon we’re fully aware that the monies meant for these two public institutions were channelled in the fight against cholera. So my humble request to you mama is, next time you go on radio is when you want to announce the date for reopening nothing else. Thank you. 2nd year UNZA student.
