But Sata already has a name of relative in mind.Intelligence sources have disclosed that President Sata prefers a Mr. Chisha Mwanakatwe while Kabimba wants Sata to appoint Morris Mulomba.
The source said Sata requested Kabimba to meet him again on Monday (today) to strike a compromise.
Sata told Kabimba that if they do not agree then he would look for someone else. Mr. Mulomba worked at BOZ as Director Banking Supervision and Regional Director for Ndola office.
He was the Project Manager for the Kwacha rebasing programme and retired soon after the rebasing programme was concluded.
He is a very close friend to the Kabimba. Kabimba is pushing his own tribal agenda in the PF. All the people have appointed are from the Bantu Botatwe (Tonga, Ila, Lenje) grouping or their traditional cousins in Northwestern and Western province. Kabimba is a (Swala) reject from Mwembesh, according to Mike Mulongoti but for political purposes, he claims he is Tonga.
Sata on the other hand is obsessed with appointing Northeners especially from Muchinga
His choice, Chisha Mwanakatwe is still working for BOZ as Regional Manager for BOZ Ndola office.
His late father John Mwanakatwe was a close family friend to Sata. His brother Mupanga Mwanakatwe is the incompetent but highly corrupt Managing Director for Zamtel.
Sata personally appointed Mupanga as MD after Zamtel was nationalised from Lapgreen.
Dr. Bwalya N’gandu has replaced Benard Chiwala as PS ministry of works. Chiwala was fired last week for reasons which the Watchdog has been told but under verification and shall be availed to the public soon.
