Shiwangadu member of Parliament Steven Kampyongo has warned newly appointed district commissioners to stay away from politics.

Mr Kampyongo observed that contrary to what  President Hakainde Hichilema was saying when he was in opposition that once in power, he will appoint DCs based on merit, the calibre of new DCs is questionable.

He said that the newly appointed DCs should be orientated on how to work rather than being political.

Mr Kampyongo said that the new DCs should not come into offices as politicians but as civil servants.

“These new DCs should not come with politics, they should be taught how to work and more importantly let us give each other respect,” he said.

And member of the central committee Catherine Chileshe has urged new PF members of parliament to emulate Mr Kampyongo.

Ms Chileshe said that Mr Kampyongo has set a good example to young politicians through his good leadership. She explained that because of his good leadership ,the people of Shiwang’andu have been voting for him.

“Our new MPs such as Sunday Chandra should learn from Mr Kampyongo, he has set a good example for young politicians.

“ Because of his hard work and good leadership ,the people of Shiwangadu have been voting for him,” she said. She wondered why the UPND candidate in Shiwangadu  Albert Munanga decided to petition the elections when he lost the elections with big margin.

Meanwhile Lukashya member of Parliament George Chisanga said the outcome of the petition cases in Shiwangadu and Lukashya has proved that the judiciary is independent.

Mr Chisanga said that now that the two cases have been thrown out, it is time to work for the people.

On Wednesday Lusaka High Court judge Bonaventure Mbewe upheld the election of Shiwangadu member of Parliament Steven Kampyongo following a petition filed earlier this year.
