zambia's immigration boss retired


The Director General For Immigration Department Anderson Phiri Has Been Retired In National Interest And His Deputy Moola Milomo Has Been Appointed To Act As The Director General.


Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu Says Mr. Phiri, Who Was Supposed To Retire Next Year  Had His Retirement Short-Lived Because Of The Mess Obtaining In The Department.

Mr Lungu Has Pointed Out That The Way The Deportation Matter Involving Henry Clark And Jane Skaramangas Was Handled Left Much To Be Desired As The Orders To Have The Two Deported Were Not Executed In A Manner Which The Ministry Of Home Affairs Expected.

He Says Something Was Fishy In The Immigration Department And Hence The Axe Had To Fall On The Head As The Person In Charge.

And Lungu Has Since Directed The Acting Director General Mr. Milomo To Clean The Mess In The Department As Well As Re-Organise It Because The Ministry Received A Lot Of Complaints Regarding Corrupt Tendencies In The Department.

He Has Advised Mr. Milomo Not To Be Complacent And Allow The Scourge Of Bad Working Culture And Wrong Attitude Towards Work By Officers To Go On Saying People Voted The Patriotic Front (Pf) Into Government Because They Wanted To See Efficiency And Effectiveness In Service Delivery In Government Departments.
The Minister Has Since Advised Officers In Other Departments Under The Ministry Of Home Affairs To Learn A Lesson From The Immigration Issue Saying Those With Laxity And Sloppiness In The Way They Discharged Duties Will Be Next To Deal With
