President Edgar Lungu has arrived in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia for the 28th African Union Ordinary Heads of State summit. And President Lungu has reportedly put his stamp on reshuffles and recalls in the diplomatic and at permanent secretary level. The Head of State will join other Presidents where elections for the African Union chairperson and other positions will be conducted with some Zambians putting up bids in some committees. He is expected to arrive in Addis Ababa around 16:00 hours and will hold bilateral talks with several Heads of State whilst in Ethiopia. On reshuffles the mass of ruling party supporters that have been waiting on the wings to step in after President Lungu won the August 11 elections may finally have their chance. The replacements will be a start of putting the stamp of the President Lungu era following his having won the elections to shake off the shadow of his predecessor Michael Sata. The post Pres.

Three teachers have been dismissed in Luapula province for sexually abusing students. The move comes at a time when sex scandals in school have come in focus following an alert by an alleged victim at Kasama Girls that has led to the suspension of three teachers and a guard. Teaching Service Commission Chairperson Jennipher Chiwela said the three teachers have been dismissed after their sexual acts at a named school in Chiengi came to the attention of the authorities. Chiwela said that the trend was worrying as parents would think twice before entrusting their children in the hands of teachers.

People’s Party president Mike Mulongoti says the endorsements and counter endorsements of President Lungu’s 2021 bid are a waste of time. Mulongoti said that he was of the view that President Lungu did not legally qualify to contest the 2021 elections and wondered why the debate was being entertained. President Lungu has told the nation that he qualifies to contest the 2021 elections after having been twice voted in office although the first attempt was to finish of late President Sata’s term. “First of all President Lungu does not qualify by law to contest elections in 2021…the debate is a waste of time,†Mulongoti said. “It just shows how greed African leaders are and want to stay in power forever.†The debate has refused to whither with some opposition political parties aligned to the ruling Patriotic Front taking the matter to the Constitutional Court seeking a declaration that President Lungu qualifies to contest.

He said that even the ECZ had been feeding the media houses with stories whenever approached to honour their obligations. The political parties were outdoing each other flooding the media with campaign messages but may not have been as keen in paying for services rendered.
