Confirmed: ailing Sata fired Ben Phiri due to poor health

It has now been confirmed that ailing dictator Michael Sata has revoked the appointment of Ben Phiri as Luapula Province Permanent Secretary.

This is according to a statement released in Lusaka yesterday by  Sata’s mouth-piece George Chellah.

Comedian Phiri was sworn-in last week on Friday during a ceremony at State House.

In a statement released by Chellah, Sata did not give reasons for the revocation but the Watchdog has been told that Ben Phiri is too sick to work.

This just shows the stupidity that goes on at State House. Sata just wakes up after cleaning his urine bags and announces that he is appointing someone without giving security officials a chance to check the appointee’ suitability.
