“Good morning beloved citizens, we are doing things in a phased and coordinated manner that will yield positive results. My first Cabinet appointment is the Minister of Finance this morning. I shall keep you updated as we progress.”

Hichilema later posted announcing that Situmbeko Musokotwane was the new Finance Minister. He said:

Situmbeko Musokotwane is a former Minister of Finance, and Government Secretary to the Treasury under the Multi-party Democracy (MMD) government also known as New Hope MMD.

While some hailed Hichilema for appointing an experienced person, some said the new leader must consider the youths in his appointments.

Hichilema won a landslide victory in an August 12 election, defeating outgoing president Edgar Chagwa Lungu by over a million vote marhin.

He has promised change for Zambians, saying the struggling economy will be revived.
