Ex-Siavonga District Commissioner, Kanyama, urges civil servants, others to stay away from politics


Former Siavonga District Commissioner, Lovemore Kanyama, has advised civil servants, chiefs and the clergy to stay away from active politics.

Kanyama said public workers, chiefs and the clergy should always work and support the government of the day.

The former District Commissioner said this in a statement issued in Lusaka on Monday.

He stated that the institutions must always play an advisory role in the running of affairs of the country and not leaking government documents to opposition political parties.

“Even as we approach the campaign moods towards the 2026 general elections, let’s at all cost desist from siding with politicians because no one knows what tomorrow will bring,” Kanyama said.

He appealed to politicians to focus on the hunger that had hit the country and see how best the country can switch to full time irrigation farming system rather than politicking 24/7.

“Zambians are well informed about the happenings in the country. The church, business houses and non governmental organizations need to partner with the government in helping our people,” Kanyama noted.

He advised that even as government planned for human beings, it should also remember to plan for livestock.
