President Edgar Lungu has terminated the appointment of Mansa Central lawmaker, Dr Chitalu Chilufya as Health Minister.

Chilufya is reportedly linked to a financial scandal involving the supply of $17 million worth of medicine, unearthed by the Auditor General’s Office and the Parliamentary Accounts Committee.

It has since been established that a supplier, Honeybee, supplied leaking condoms, gloves and fake medicine.

Meanwhile, Bwana Mkubwa Member of Parliament and Water Affairs Minister, Dr. Jonas Kamima Chanda, has been appointed new Health Minister.
