I am available to serve in President Lungu’s cabinet, glory be to God, opposition leader Rev. Dan Pule.
Rev. Pule who heads a political party called Christian Democratic Party (CDP) says he extensively campaigned for President Lungu and is now ready to work if he needs him.
He says it is time for work and not politicking as Zambians are expecting alot from government. He has however promised that he will also campaign for President Lungu even in 2021.
President Lungu made the eight nominations he is provided by the constitution last week. This means that if he is to give jobs to people like Rev Pule and those who campaigned for him, it has to be in Civil Service and Foreign Mission.
