This morning we joined Cabinet Ministers to officially open their induction workshop at Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka, Zambia.

During the ceremony we emphasised that you, our People, expect nothing less than what you elected us for and no Cabinet Minister should place self interest above that of the People.

We told the Ministers that they are in office because people want water, jobs, business opportunities and quality healthcare services. In the absence of these things, no Minister should be walking with his or her head high.

Our vision is that of lowering the cost of doing business and bettering lives of all and as such we will not be shy to make necessary changes at whatever levels including at Cabinet if there is ineffectiveness in that portfolio.

This New Dawn means working and working hard for the people of our Country. Today’s induction workshop should be a benchmark on how Ministers will operate and this will be the trend going forward as it will be helping us appraise the Ministers.

Five years is a short period of time and we have to deliver the people’s expectations and all Ministers must work hard.

We have a nation to run and YES, we have to deliver the jobs, business opportunities, education and quality healthcare services among others, which we promised the people of Zambia.

Let’s get on with work because this is not time for luxury but delivering change. There is no time to sleep in meetings, but deliver for the people who elected you to office.

May God Bless our Country.

Hakainde Hichilema
President of the Republic of Zambia.

  1. People like Lungu lusambo and Sikazwe cannot understand these things. Very shallow minded people like the PF can’t understand anything.

  2. Thank you so much President HH for taking time to open an Induction for Ministers. Unfortunately, 90% of admin staff are PF sympathisers and are still in posts, so not sure if you are ruling or PF is ruling.

    PS’s, Directors, and senior PF Sympathisers are still in their posts while the people that supported you are languishing in the streets.
    Please look after them and ensure that they have jobs otherwise 2026 will be a different story. Just to let you know that if your approval ratings was 60% on 16th August, 2021, they have today dropped to 49% and this is true.

    • One thing you have to learn is that the policy of UPND is to provide service to Zambians.
      The heart of the president is to unite the country and not divide it.
      The former pf Directors, PSs are still helping in certain investigations. The problem with some Zambians like you is that you are used to the organised confusions that have prevailed.
      I totally disagree with you on the approval ratings dropping to 49%. Instaed the approval ratings have risen above 60%. Go to the markets and ask those who voted pf if they have been chased away then ask them their views.
