Replacing Professionals with Cadres has caused problems

Bryan Chipeta

President Michael Sata’s decision to indiscriminately fire and retire professionals in the Civil Service is the main reason why we now have confusion and policy failure in the country.

The PF Cadres who are now holding key positions lack the requisite knowledge and experience on how to manage policy and coordinate economic management. Policy changes such as the removal of subsidies require dialogue so that the key stakeholders and the general population can plan for the expected impact.

The PF has just dropped a bombshell on the poor masses and that in itself is poor finishing (PF).
