  1. Why inform us about this man`s sacking if you can not tell us the reasons why? Just trying to prove that you are a resolute leader. Yes resolute when the firing has no political consequences for you. Fire Chitotela and Chitalu Chilufya and the whole country will clap for you. Not this window dressing with small fish.
