Eastern Province Permanent Secretary, Emmanuel Mwamba has been transferred to Western Province barely two months after he was posted to Eastern Province.
President Michael Sata has with immediate effect swapped Mr. Mwamba with Western Province Permanent Secretary, Betty Mushala.
Mr. Mwamba announced his transfer Thursday morning during the Provincial Joint Operations Committee meeting in Chipata.
Mr. Mwamba says that he received a call from the president asking him if he can work in Western Province which he says as a civil servant, he was ready to work anywhere.
And Mr. Mwamba has advised government departments and parastatal companies that the programs that he had started pushing for them in the Province should not end because he has been transferred.
Has says that the programmes should continue despite having a new permanent secretary.
Mr. Mwamba is expected to be in Western Province on Monday next week.
