Please do not expose our identities, John Chirwa will get us all fired.
This letter is meant to expose John Chirwa the Zesco Area Manager for Kafue and his nonsensical deeds. He has been seriously bombarding us and continuously harassing by his lack of managerial skills. This chap boasts that he reports to President Lungu and that no one, not even Mundende the Zesco MD has jurisdiction over him. Of course this is bull*t. He is so big-headed and has literally ruined the working moral for employees at the Zesco Kafue Area Office.
John Chirwa is basically a Technician by qualification, his predecessors were either Diploma Holders or Engineers. How he got appointed to this prestigious position is still a shock to many. In Zesco, John Chirwa originally rose from working as a fitter “cannibalizing” distribution transformers at the Transformer Workshop. John Chirwa’s dangerous little managerial knowledge has brought the Zesco Area Office in disrepute. He walks too tall for his height, and makes a total mess of the work environment.
John does not only poison the work environment, he further went ahead to influence the Divisional Human Resources to transfer his girlfriend who was a Cashier in Lusaka. Upon arrival at Kafue, she was assigned to an unidentifiable job. A job that does not exist in Zesco job listing. John Chirwa created a job not befitting Job Descriptions of the Limited company and slotted his girlfriend in that same non-existent job. In the quest to create an own empire, he recently recommended all suspected persons who may have been against this crazy agenda. This is the same girl friend who has made John Chirwa – Kafue Area manager to abandon his entire family complete who are now languishing like they were fatherless.
While some artificial house keeping has been commenced, the transfer of that girl to Chirundu which is still under John Chirwa is far from being a solution. Can Management be thorough is dealing with pertinent issues like this. Madam Sampa (Wife to Kelvin Sampa MP Kasama Central), tried this jig.
The earlier Zesco Management realizes that John Chirwa is a hazard in Kafue and act accordingly the better. This is not John Chirwa’s company. John Chirwa must be moved from Kafue to create harmony and tranquility. He must be moved to where he can work without bullying people daily. What he is currently doing now is unacceptable.
