Former Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has advised ministers in the new dawn administration to let off their hands in the affairs of civil servants for the sake of productivity in government.

The former cabinet minister has signed out the recent impromptu visit by minister of health Sylvia Masebo at Lusaka’s Chipata level one hospital where she took a swipe at some health personnel who were alleged found pressing their mobile phones, that such a move and remarks by the minister of health is a clear intimidation to the health workers.

He says there is no proof pointing to any of the nurses or doctors who were playing with their phones while on duty hence it was wrong for the minister to conduct herself in such a manner which demeans a noble profession like that of nurses.

He adds that the minister should quickly come to the realization that this is 21st century where most of the works such required by health workers and other professionals can be done online hence the embarrassment on the health personnel was uncalled for.

Mr. Kampyongo says surprisingly the minister went on making wild allegations of medicines are getting missing in clinics and hospitals when in fact government knows very well that there are no such drugs in the facilities to be stolen by health workers as alleged by the Minister.

He has since advised the minister not to allow her political emontions to penetrate into the operation of the civil service as she is prisiding over a very sensitive ministry which requires a sober minister as opposed to someone who maybe overzealous.

Mr. Kampyongo says UPND ministers should not dare civil servants whose life span to the system is longer than that of a minister and any other politician.

Meanwhile the former Minister who is also Shiwang’andu MP has wondered why former defence minister Geoffrey Mwamba allies GBM has become a suspect of corruption under the UPND government the allegations which occured some years back and later on went to save as vice president of Hakainde Hichilema now president.

He said this during an exclusive interview with Muvi tv news in Kasama district of Northern province.



  1. We do not want the indiscipline that was rife in the pf to be found in the New Dawn government. Those people are there to work. Time enough to look at their phones during their brief break. Stop criticising everything. You people are just showing yourselves up. Who would want you back in power really?

    • Koma zoona chika kampyongo you forgotten shapa wakungumaa d many civil
      Servants whom you retired in national interest. Vipuba vimaibalan fast

  2. Tell this idiot to voseek. What does he know about running ministries, tebupuba bwa balya njikwite u wakufumishe pa katondo straight into an office you did not deserve?

  3. Ka kapyongo, ulimbwa sana.
    You forgot, that you were very pompous, tepapa, where are you. You are just a dog licking from its wounds . Tondolo, musuma, sana.Elyo, umukashi wobe, abomba mu Givernment, you better shut up, limbi, eulekweba, ifyabupu, careful, ka kakunkuibiti, you don’t have a presidential height, efyo namano yaipipila.

  4. No brain leadership. Yes, nurses spend time on their phones instead of attending to patients. What stupidity ati modt budiness is transactef pama phones? Nursing care in wards or clinics? Get real ba mwankole imwe. We want oyr money back. Am sure the purchase of those war vehicles and equipment for the police is still being investigated. Where there is a will there is a way. You will return all your ill gotten wealth back to the zambian people.

  5. In the first place Stephen Kampyongo you were a misfit as Cabinet Minister, your appointment to a ministerial position was an insult to the integrity of professional ethics and leadership. From Katondo Street vendor to Cabinet Minister with just the experience of thuggish and barbaric behaviour.

    Kampyongo you are dull and ignorant you do not know what intimidation and interference is in the administration of performance management?

    Your PF government was the waste government which created a bad working culture in the civil service. We need to work together to bring change mind set among poor work culture in the government.

  6. Some comments do not even deserve to appear in the media because they are futile.Kampyongo doesn’t see anything wrong workers busy on phones at the expense of performing their respective duties .Is that right thinking ?This is purely Katondo Street type of looking at critical issues.God is always great coz He can raise even pipo with feeble minds to top govt Office.Let Sylvia execute her diligent duties n stop criticizing. positive actions.I recall an incident involving a Nurse n the patient whereby the former left the injection in the arm of the latter to answer her phone call.Does anyone recall what followed ?

  7. How many times have you heard jack mwiimbu giving warnings to his fellow Zambians? Only a dull katondo street man Steven kampyongo.so you wanted people not be treated? This is a man who fired police officers.

  8. This little guy, all the things he vomits always tends depict how he acted in power.

    His little minds carries Alot of fear and insecurity. He is always trying to invite ordinary people to cover him on sympathy grounds.

    Kampyongo stop exposing your self. No one has forgotten who you really were, the wrong you kampyongo did. It will come out eventually but do not ask for people to protect you.

    They are still hurt by your deeds. You are a real uncouth character who needs to be just crudely dealt with. So when you get to stand in front of villagers, do you convince yourself that they don’t know about the firetrucks?

  9. It is a matter of time, all the saboteurers who were planted by the ex governing party will be exposed, shamed and weeded out if the system.
