Civil rights activist Brebner Changala has observed that the alleged failure of the Patriotic Front (PF) government to issue governance policy guideline is a sign that Cabinet has been disbanded.
Mr. Changala says he is particularly concerned that President Michael Sata has continued being absent in the public and that government itself also being dodgy about telling the nation about the wellbeing of the President.
He has told Qfm news in an interview that he thinks that it is important the President Sata shows the nation that he is leading the nation by his mandate.
The Civil rights activist notes that President Sata alleged absence from the public eye is a great source of concern and it is also allegedly affecting economy and has brought about unnecessary rumor mongering which he says is a further threat to national security.
He says it as if the country is on auto pilot and no one seems to care as Cabinet itself has allegedly failed and must be condemned.
Mr. Changala has particularly singled out the President’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations George Chellah as one of the people that have failed in their mandates as he has allegedly stopped informing the nation about President Sata’s work.
But Mr. Chellah has told Qfm news in a separate interview that State House has never taken Mr. Changala’s views seriously.
Mr. Chellah notes that therefore engaging Mr. Changala in any matter is a waste of time.
He says State House will thus not engage in any shadow boxing with the civil rights activist as he only appears to be a busy body.
The President’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations says State House remains focused on delivery on the mandate that the Zambian people gave to President Sata.
