Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services permanent secretary Emmanuel Mwamba announced the development at a press briefing in Lusaka yesterday.
“I have brought Mr Isaac Chipampe to the ministry, he will be heading a new portfolio which has been created. My predecessor had created this particular portfolio. With the movement of Mr Chipampe to the ministry, Mr Anthony Mukwita – deputy managing director, will act as managing director at the Zambia Daily Mail with immediate effect,” he said.
Mr Mwamba said Mr Chipampe will help the permanent secretary to facilitate the growth and development of a vibrant and professional public and private media in the country.
He said Mr Chipampe will co-ordinate activities of public media institutions and ensure they operate in a professional manner in accordance with the national goals and aspirations.
“Mr Chipampe will help the permanent secretary facilitate dismantling of the debt stock the public media, namely ZNBC, Times Printpakand Zambia Daily Mail, including Zambia Printing Company, owe to statutory bodies such as NAPSA and Zambia Revenue Authority,” he said.
Mr Mwamba said Mr Chipampe will also help the permanent secretary facilitate dissemination of relevant information on Government policies and programmes.
“This is a huge task, admittedly, but with Mr Chipampe’s professional stature, quality and calibre, success is assured as he is a joining a vibrant and winning team at the ministry,” Mr Mwamba said.
Mr Mwamba directed all media heads to “depoliticise” public media institutions to make journalists professional.
“The media heads in the public media institutions are further directed to ensure that there are no personal-to-holder reporters attached to certain government ministers in terms of news coverage. This should come to an end with immediate effect,” he said.
And Mr Mwamba said the process of appointing the board of directors for Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) and Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) has reached an advanced stage and will be announced soon.
