PF faction accuses govt of meddling, sabotaging career of civil servants


The Patriotic Front (PF), led by Edgar Lungu, has accused the Local Government Service Commission and Civil Service Commission of sabotaging the careers of civil servants.

Raphael Nakacinda, the Faction Secretary-General, alleged that numerous innocent civil servants had been unjustly dismissed as part of a scheme to cleanse the civil service.

According to Nakacinda, many local government employees, including Public Relations Officers, have suffered similar fate.

“We are aware of the orchestrated removal of council Secretaries and town clerks by Ackson Sejani, Chairperson of the Local Government Service Commission,” he stated.

Nakacinda also claimed that Choolwe Benyani, Sejani’s counterpart at the Public Service Commission, had been actively purging the civil service.

He alleged that over 400 qualified individuals at the Public Service Management Division had been unfairly dismissed.

“We are cognizant of the manipulative tactics being employed to influence the 2026 elections through state institutions such as the Zambia Information Technology Authority (ZICTA), National Registration Department, Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ), and the Zambia Police,” Nakacinda asserted.

Furthermore, he expressed concerns regarding the appointment of known party members to key positions within the ECZ, such as Mwaangala Zaloumis as Chairperson, MacDonald Chipenzi as Commissioner, and Brown Kasaro as Chief Electoral Officer.

Nakacinda alleged that President Hakainde Hichilema had lost mass popularity and was determined to stay in power using alleged underhand and illegal methods.

“We call upon Zambians to reject these machinations and to help restore democracy in Zambia,” he advised.
