    • Felix Mutati good appointment but umm so what will become of MMD as a party? Because as far as I know, this is not a coalition government. What happens when Mutati differs with Lungu? Fired! And who is going to own MMD? Lungu or is it Nevers Mumba? Quite a confusing scenario here more like the constitution itself. What a confused country altogether.Where is Mushota?

    • Stop being deluded you PF maggots. Is Mutati in authority to stop Lungu and his gang from syphoning money from government coffers?

      Mutati performed under Mwanawasa because Mwanawasa was not crooked like Kaminamisa Lungu and his bunch of thieves.

      Mutati has confined himself to political failure because all the blame about the impending failing economy will be heaped on him ,just like Chikwanda.

      PF tarnishes good people’s intentions no matter what their creditials are as long as thugs continue to call the shots.

      Even Lungu has failed to discipline his thugs so he just goes with the flow. They rob the government coffers and steal from the public and share the loot with Lungu.

      Zambia is sinking under PF just like Zimbabwe sunk under ZANU-PF.

  6. I pity Flelix Mutati as new Minister of Finance.He will find Treasury coffers empty and with illegality and illegitimacy he will find foreign financing hard to comeby.Until the electoral malpractices,irregularities,fraud and Petetion are resolves Mutati will find no financial joy from Aid Donors and multi-lateral financial institutions like the IMF and World Bank. These Institutions do not normally finance illegitimate regimes who have committed electoral fraud and human rights violations.

  9. HE Lungu just pick people who are going to perform to your expectation. If you do tribal balancing you will bring in wrong people who are bent on destroying government. We know what some people can do. They will bring destruction and they join the other side afterwards. Pick a working team your excellence

  12. Most of Sata’s people have been left out. Very Good for them for supporting fraud. Very shameful for someone like Mutati to join failures that have destoryed the country and will continue to do so. He thinks this is Levy who had the people at heart – he will start receiving instructions from Kaizer Zulu like junior accountant

  16. Dont worry children of God, our heavenly father who art in heaven is not sleeping, he will always protect his own. People should read the Ten Commandments also should know that the wages of SIN is death. The truth shall always set us free before the Lord. All those that tell lies, who steal shall face the wrath of God.
