The system of executive board members who occupy full-time office space was curtailed by late Levy Mwanawasa due to wastefulness.
The only ones that were allowed under Mwanawasa administration to enjoy these facilities were chairpersons of Teaching Service Commission, Electoral Commission of Zambia, Police and Prison Service Commission.
For the rest, the Mwanawasa administration allocated these people vehicles and allowances at their disposal during special assignments, mainly presidential trips.
