On August 30 2022, Patriotic Front-PF Facebook page uploaded a circular initially released by the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) in which it has advertised the position of Chief Executive Officer. In a caption which was not part of the advert but was just added to the circular, Patriotic Front-PF claimed that the advertised job opportunity was for citizens belonging to a particular region. It says people who were from other regions should not bother to apply. Leading up to the August 12 2021 general elections, some political parties alleged that if Mr. Hichilema were to be voted into power as President, most prominent job opportunities in government would be availed to people belonging to the region the current President hails from. Reacting to the caption added to the job advert, many followers of the page wondered how giving job opportunities to certain region was tribal.
