Presidential Special Assistant to the Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda has tendered in his resignation.

Chanda who has served from 2015 said  he has already delivered the  resignation letter to President Edgar Lungu.

 Chanda said after reading through the draft constitution, he has understood the constitutional clause which requires civil servants who intend to aspire for political office to resign two years before an election.

Chanda said he does not want to be caught up with the clause in case he decides to aspire for political office in future.

And Chanda has since thanked the President for according him an opportunity to serve the country at a highest government level.

“Last evening I tendered my resignation to His Excellency the President and he has accepted my departure into the private sector.  I have perused the draft constitution particularly on the requirement for civil servants to vacate office two years ahead of elections and I do not want to be caught up in this clause should I aspire for political office in the future,” said Chanda.

Chanda has been very critical of the opposition, in the past he even had an altercation with NFC leader Chishimba Kambwili in which many people said he behaves like a politician.

Recently the NDF proposed that Civil servants must wait after two years before joining active politics after leaving the service.
