"I got a phone call yesterday when I was preparing to go to Church. When I picked up, the President said ‘this is President Lungu’. I thought it was a prank but when I listened carefully, it sounded like him. He asked to see me and I came to State House, he offered me the job and I gladly accepted it," said Dr Ng’andu who replaces Margaret Mwanakatwe, the Lusaka Central Member of Parliament.
