Party cadres running parastatals: Kabimba, Willie Nsanda to run Zamtel

THE government has appointed a new board of directors for Zamtel to be led by PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba, according to the pro-PF government newspaper the Post.

On January 24, 2012, President Michael Sata dissolved the board of directors of Zamtel and appointed Dr Mupanga Mwanakwatwe as acting chief executive officer and chairman.

The dissolution followed President Sata’s acceptance “without reservation” of findings of the Sebastian Zulu commission of inquiry investigating the US $257 million sale of three quarters of Zamtel to LAP Green Networks of Libya in 2010.

According to sources, the new board of directors comprises former Chimwemwe PF member of parliament Willie Nsanda, PF member and Lusaka Province Permanent Secretary Charity Mwansa, Ministry of Finance permanent secretary Dr Abraham Mwenda and a Mr Mwiinga.
