The Local Government Service Commission has equally been dissolved with immediate effect.

Local Government and Rural Development Minister Garry Nkombo said President Hichilema has that assured that the appointment of the Local Government Service Commissioners will be set as priority.

He said this is after the President returns from his tour of duty in the United States of America.

“The responsibility of appointing and disappointing members of any Commission is solely the prerogative of the Head of State, this was done in accordance with the Service Commission Act No.10 of 2016 which provides for this remedy in an instance of a vacancy of commission chairperson,” he said.

Ms Yevuka assumed the acting chairperson position by virtue of her being the vice chairperson of commission at a time there was a vacancy,
