Katuba opposition UPND Member of Parliament Jonas Shakafuswa says he hopes Miles Sampa’s party is not formed to propagate a Bemba president.

Shakafuswa however says It’s is good that a youthful leader in Miles who considers as a brother has finally come out and founded a political party.

“I congratulate him. I just hope this party is not premised on a belief, as GBM put it that ” a Bemba can only be a President or vice President,” Shakafuswa says.

“This kind of thought has no place in modern day Zambia,” he charges.

Shakafuswa says “It will also be interesting to hear Miles’ take on political violence as he was the one of the major sponsor of violence in PF. He sent thugs to go and beat up people in church whose sin was praying for the enactment of a new constitution at the Matero Bicoga church. He sent thugs t disrupt the Katuba by election. But these got a hidding from my people.”

The outspoken Katuba MP says people have to learn that in politics there will always be divergent views.

He says a good leader accepts and tolerate other people’s views. He says he hopes Sampa has learnt his lesson and will do better.

  1. Good observation Mr Shakaz.Such thoughts should never be the driving force to form political parties by anybody. We will be watching as events unravel.

  2. HE HAS STATED THE REASONS FOR LEAVING PF ;WHY HAVE YOU STARTED INSNUATING AGAIN. HE IS A YOUTH PRESIDENT AND US THE YOUTHS ARE BEHIND HIM.VIVA MILES VIVA DEMOCRATIC FRONT.

    PF HAS BEEN INVADED BY MMD THUGS AND LOST CORES ON WHICH IT WAS FOUNDED; THE LOWER TAX, MORE MONEY IN PEOPLES POCKETS MOTTO.

    WHO IMAGINED RB AND DORA WILL BE SOWING FROM THE SWEAT OF SATA; WHO THEY CAGED AND INSULTED.SHAME. IT IS NOT ABOUT TRIBE BUT BRINGING BACK THE ORIGINAL PF.

  4. Miles is riding on Sata’s popularity and few reporting adverts of the Post Newspaper. But these are not adequate to make him win 2016 elections. He has a lot of work to do.

  8. You are the one who is a tribalist shakafuswa, please don’t confuse mix the two issues here as they are totally different and unrelated. What Miles has expressed is simply ambition, so there is nothing tribal here. Don’t hinder people from exercising their democratic rights to aspire for higher political office by putting around their necks a tribal tug no. Miles is a Zambian just the same way you and I are. If you have a vision, passion, ambition and money form yours also or better still continue being a political prostitute I have come to know about you, maybe just maybe you could be in State House one day through prostitution or forming your own party . But remember you are not growing any younger as time is fast disadvantaging you.

  9. Sampa needs first to apologize for propagating that for Southerners to make it to State House they need to marry Bemba men. I dont know whether when he said that he was drunk or what. But look at people he is already surrounding himself with, the Kasolo’s of this world etc. Sampa is a tribalist to the core. Why didnt he join Chipimo, Magande, Miyanda or his fellow cartel member Kabimba?

  10. Shikafwasha, you have a short memory, there has never been a Bemba republican president in Zambia since independence and it’s a relapse of his mind due to tribal driven mentality. Shikafwasha is a senior member of the UPND and for him to say this about GBM has a lot of anger in many senior members . Shikafwasha is speaking on behalf of UPND. It shows GBM is not accepted and is being used for political gains in Northern and Muchinga period.
    Our founding father KK is from Malawi, Chiluba was Lunda from Luapula musangu village, mwanawasa lamba / lenje and Sata was Bisa . There fore no Bemba has been. President and I don’t know why every one think Bemb have been ruling this country. The only thing that Bemba are good at is to mingle with others and propel someone they think can do better.

  11. Pafwenamwine,

    You are dead right. There is prevailing myth that Bembas have dominated the Presidency in Zambia because of misconceptions of who Bembas are. Some people think anyone who speaks Bemba is a Bemba. In my family, for example, we are a nixed patchwork of Lunda from Luapula, Bemba from Kasama, and Lungu/Mambwe from Mbala. Our language of communication in the family is Bemba. Does that make us Bemba? I know Shakafuswa very, very well at a personal level from the UNZA days to the present and I am disappointed with his tribal utterances because I have never and still do not regard him as a tribalist. He is Lenje and speaks fairly good Bemba and has a beautiful Bemba – speaking wife from the north. Does that make him and his family Bemba?

  12. I was left wondering why PF cadres resorted to sorting out Miles Sampa at SMKI Airport, Ndola if he was not a factor. And reminder to Miles Sampa cadres have no color they can fit in a vessel as long as it suits them. Today one can use them to cause all sorts of political violence but once you change camps they will violently turn on you. Is Sampa not the same man who organized cadres to attack church members in Matero not very long ago. I hope young Sampa has learnt a lot of things within a short time following his resignation from PF Govt. and finally the PF membership. Depending on how he is going to carry himself and his members he may end up in political wilderness like late Bean Mungomba and others. Wish Miles the best as he markets his DF to Zambian voters. For now let PF stop commenting on MS as he is not a political factor in their own thinking.
