Bwalya Ng’andu off to Muchinga

Barely 48 hours after appointing former Bank of Zambia (BoZ) deputy governor Bwalya Ng’andu as Works and Supply Permanent Secretary, President Michael Sata has with immediate effect transferred Dr Ng’andu to Muchinga Province in the same capacity.
Dr Ng’andu was sworn in as Works and Supply Permanent Secretary on Friday last week but sources have told the Daily Nation that the former BoZ deputy governor had been moved to Muchinga after he was reported to have complained about his demotion.President Sata’s press aide George Chellah declined to comment when contacted but sources said Dr Ng’andu was not happy to have been removed from his lucrative job at the Central Bank. Efforts to get a comment from Dr Ng’andu failed as his mobile phone was switched off.
