Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya has been axed for failing to competently supervise his Ministry, according to a reliable source who spoke to Zibani Zambia.

President Lungu is reportedly annoyed with the failure by Health Minister to competently coordinate the works at the Ministry of Health.

President Lungu who has allowed his Ministers to freely operate said he expects his Ministers to be above board in the manner they supervise their ministries.

The President has been on record as saying he won’t tolerate wrongdoing but would not run a Government of witch-hunt.

President Lungu has since appointed Bwana Mkubwa MP Jonas Chanda as Minister of Health, while nominated MP Raphael Nakacinda become the new Minister of Water Affairs.
