He was until his appointment, Director for Press and Media Development at the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
He also previously served as Managing Editor of the government owned Daily Mail.
He is due to be sworn in this morning at State House.
People in the know say Chipampe is puppet for Amos Chanda as he is the one who influenced who influenced his appointment as Managing Director at the Zambia Daily Mail. He also made him Director at the Ministry.
That means Chanda will still have remote control as Chipampe is not really very intelligent.
