Zambia Air Force (ZAF) Commander Eric Chimese has been relieved of his duties, Minister of Defence Davies Chama has confirmed.

“Yes, I can confirm that General Chimese is no longer the ZAF Commander. It is only the President [Edgar Lungu] who can remove him,” Mr Chama said in an interview yesterday.

Asked why Lieutenant General Chimese has been fired, Mr Chama said the Constitution allows the head of State to appoint or dismiss anyone without giving reasons/Smart Eagles.
