The weeping by State house aide Lucky Mulusa when he saw how civil servants were suffering in the new district of Ngabwe in Central province has angered President Edgar Lungu because the act displays him as an irresponsible leader.
On Saturday, Mulusa who is on an allowance making mission under the pretext of inspecting projects made an act of openly weeping in Ngabwe after seeing how civil servants were abandoned in an area without electricity, security and any phone network.
But a Watchdog source inside State house has revealed that the act did not go well with Lungu who went as far as saying Mulusa’s weeping was because of the whisky he had taken and was merely expressing emotions out of beer.
This is the second time Mulusa’s good boyhood has angered Lungu, the other time he was sent to calm the peaceful demonstration by UPND in view of the failure to reopen Mulungushi Textiles in spite of government promises in pre election time but Mulusa ended up exposing the fertiliser and detergents which were being sold at the industry by the leasee Mohammed Enterprises Tanzania Limited (METL). Hadn’t it been for Rupiah Banda’s intervention, he could have been fired.
Sata hastily declared Ngabwe a district in 2013 but to date no structure has been created, the district commissioner operates in a tent while other civil servants live in dilapidated village houses called guest houses where they pay K1 per night.
