Sata employees Brian Hapunda as political secretary for Southern province

President Michael Sata has created a job for former UPND youth coordinator Brian Hapunda.

Hapunda, who resigned from UPND a few weeks ago has written on his face book page that

‘I wish2 thank HE President Michael Chilufya Sata 4 appointing me Southern Province Political Secretary on my special day (birthday).

Hapunda, who was UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’ s agent during the 2011 elections struggled to explain to his friends on face book what exactly his new job entails.

His sceptical friends asked him whether this is a PF job to be paid by Wynther Kabimba or he will draw a salary from government coffers

He responded: ‘my job description inter alia (among others) is to Coordinate all Political activities of the Party & Government in the entire Province, be a good will ambassador of the Party & Government etc.

He said these (political secretary) are new Portfolios.

He said he is taking up the job to serve what he called his people and and mother Zambia at large.

‘It’s a huge challenge for me at 29yrs also considering the Political landscape but I’ll not fail to work for the best interest of my people. My Office will be in Choma-New Provincial Capital’ wrote Hapunda whose father Fredrick Hapunda is the PF government ambassador to Russia.

Hapunda resigned from UPND recently.

He was late last year appointed envoy to South Africa but declined the appointment citing commitment to his party UPND.

But from that time, he was side-lined from the party as he was seen as a spy reporting directly to president Sata.
