    Too late. All of you are getting fired come 2021. God has heard our cry. Being a Christian is about power not being a fool as you have perceived us to be. God has power over the devil.Wishing you happy time in Zambian jails where you all belong.

    Why don’t you give us small CVs of the incoming Ministers just to have an idea of where they are coming from?

    Well overdue. Good riddance to bad rubbish. The mansion and other homes he obtained while in tenure must be confiscated. Government officials have no right to abuse their civil servant positions to enrich themselves.Period. Nobody is above the law. He must face criminal charges for stealing money that never belonged to him. By holding these officials accountable for abusing their high offices will send a strong message to others not engage in such lawlessness acts.

    What about the officials within ministry who worked with Dr Chilufya? I imagine the PSs, the senior directors for procurement and accounting. The heads of pharmacy and other equipment used in hospitals? Do they get a pass? Shouldn’t they go with the minister? Otherwise they will initiate the new minister of health in the same crookedness

    Iwe PFoool One, is this enough punishment, just sacking a proven PFief? This Chilufya pfief must be prosecuted and jailed. PFoool One will also be prosecuted for corruption and treason after August 2021.
