The Young African Leaders Initiative is now calling on Republican President Edgar Lungu to expedite the appointment of his full Cabinet in order to allow all Ministries focus on dealing with challenges facing the people.
In an interview with QFM News today, YALI Governance Advisor Isaac Mwanza believes that during his working holiday, President Lungu has had enough time to reflect on how he intends to run government and the type of suitable persons that would help him deliver on his promises to the Zambian masses.
Mr. Mwanza says the nation now expects President Lungu to finalize his Cabinet appointments and ensure persons are appointed on the basis of their capacity to understand the direction government intends to take in serving the Zambian people and on their capacity to deliver.
Mr. Mwanza has further called on President Lungu to avoid appointing people that will not be able to objectively advise him or help him to deliver because of fears to point out what he may be uncomfortable with.
He adds YALI believes that President Lungu has the capacity and commitment to now appoint more young people to leadership positions in the same manner he has appointed some women.
