Sata press conference canceled

The press conference which was supposed to be addressed by new President Michael Sata has been canceled.

Local and international journalists who went to cover the event at State House were turned away by security personnel at State House.

Police officers at state house told reporters that they were not aware of any press conference today.

Five days after been sworn in, president Michael Sata has not appointed a cabinet despite promising during campaigns to develop Zambia within 90 days.

Sata promised to put a good constitution in place within 90 days and to honour the Bartoseland agreement.

He also promised to, within 90 days, create million of jobs for youths.

He also promised to re-introduce the windfall tax on mines, though he has already indicated that he will not honor this particular promise.

Anxiety and expectations are high among voters who expected to have more money in their pockets during the reign of the man nicknamed King Cobra due to his conduct.

Inside sources say Sata wants to include MMD officials and former State House workers in his team, a development that is said to be annoying PF cadres.

Sata is also said to have courted NGO leaders who werre vocal during the MMD government.

Among those said to be on Sata’s list of appointees are Transparency International Zambia,  SACCORD bosses , and people Like Joyce Nonde Simukoko who has the past three days upped her media presence.
