The ruling Patriotic Front has stopped Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa from going round the country mobilising members.

Sampa who according to insiders from the ruling party is organising to announce a breakaway from PF has been going round mobilising members.

But this morning, PF Information Chairperson Frank Bwalya announced at a media briefing in Lusaka that Sampa should now restricted himself to Matero.

“We wish to make it clear that Mr Miles Sampa who is our member of parliament for Matero constituency in Lusaka is not among party officials with the mandate to go around the country undertaking mobilisation activities,” Fr. Bwalya said. “Therefore in the absence of permission from concerned authorities Mr Sampa should confine his mobilisation activities to his constituency”

Bwalya also said only those with the party’s mandate will be allowed to go round the country mobilising.

“We have seen the need for our party hierarchy to provide guidance on this subject of party mobilisation as follows;

  • No party official is allowed to undertake national mobilisation activities without the full blessing of the party hierarchy.
  • For avoidance of doubt we wish to mention names of party officials that are allowed to go around the country mobilising members of our great party. These are our Party Leader who is also Republican President Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu. President Lungu, nicknamed “Mr Walk the Talk” after delivering the people driven Republican Constitution which he promised, will continue taking time off his busy schedule of state programmes to interact with PF officials and inspire party mobilisation. Other party officials allowed to undertake national mobilisation activities are our Secretary General Mr Davies Chama and his deputy Ms Mumbi Phiri. Others are chairpersons of sub-committees of the Central Committee namely Mr. Chishimba Kambwili MP who is also Chief Government Spokesperson, Ms Jean Kapata MP, MCC Charles Banda, MCC Frank Bwalya and Mr Stephen Kampyongo MP.
  • Similarly all party officials are advised against undertaking membership mobilisation programmes outside their area of jurisdiction namely province, district, constituency and ward.
  • Our party structures are therefore advised to shun any member claiming to be on a national mobilisation programme to the exclusion of party officials from relevant party structures.

Bwalya said PF shall remain a democratic party in which internal democracy shall be encouraged. He said PF members are therefore free to exercise their democratic right to engage in discourses on various subjects of interest to them.

But he said President Lungu was the ruling party’s candidate for the August 11, 2016 presidential election.

“At this juncture, allow me to reiterate our position regarding our presidential candidate for August 2016. Mr Edgar Changwa Lungu remains leader of our party enjoying a 5 year tenure effective January 2015. Since the forthcoming presidential and general elections fall within the said 5 year mandate, President Lungu remains our candidate for the August 11, 2016 presidential election. This is non-negotiable.
Against this above background, we wish to advise those with notorious ambition to stand as republican president on the attractive PF ticket to come to terms with the futility of their desires,” said Bwalya.

He charged that the PF will not allow any member nor any group within the party to take members back to the period of confusion and extreme vulnerability the ruling party found itself in after the death of founding leader late Michael Chilufya Sata.

“We have put that bad patch behind us and we have managed to strengthen our party in readiness for the forthcoming general election. As such, we have no time to entertain elements in our party that don’t mean well for our leader Mr Walk the Talk, Edgar Chagwa Lungu and party in general,” he said.

  2. What nonsense! They are banning party members from mobilising their support and at the same time claiming that the PF is a democratic party where members are free to engage in any discourse with fellow party members. What sort of madness is this? This is a confused party where people don’t know whether they are moving forwards or backwards. No wonder the backtracking on all the decisions they make.

  5. Inonge Wina a traitor has also been betrayed by the party they helped to put in power twice, with Micheal Sata when she ditched HH and UPND after a scandalous park of PF & UPND, and during the use of hands voting of Edgar Lungu at Mulungushi who finally got the cup of presidency. Today she is among those blacklisted to talk freely on Panga Family. Shame. Anyway vote for HH and UPND on 11.08.2016

  6. All those mentioned are of questionable character. Very vulgar and has no respect of others. Let us wait and see. Any violence in the country those should be the first people to arrest. They rank among the most quarrel some individual both within and outside Panga Family. To term them we must NOT vote for any of them including Parliamentary seats.

  8. Miles Sampa is a free person and is free to go wherever he wants. If you do not want him to mobilize PF, then get rid of him so that he can enjoy his freedom of movement. You are already panicking even before Miles Sampa has resigned. Frank Bwalya, Miles Sampa is a PF member and if you are not comfortable with that fact you can leave the PF. I am sure ECL was referring to Frank Bwalya when he said that some PF members have become big headed.

    PF Die Hard.

  9. PF is cracking, wait and see what will happen before the elections. They have underrated sampa.

  10. Murder him or lock him up through the key, in the absence of that mubepelefye. The man is a free citizen of this country free to be where ever he wants at a given time or allover the place at the same time. Uyu umwenso wayamba ukutinya nomba.

  12. uuuuummmmmh! I’m curious about this Team. Edgar LUNGU, Davies CHAMA, MUMBI Phiri, Chishimba KAMBWILI, Charles BANDA, Stephen KAMPYONGO, Frank BWALYA and ofcourse an outlier Jean KAPATA. Anything strange here? Turn this around and Imagine it was UPND that had such a list. Just imagine the headlines in the Times of Zambia, Daily Mail and the Daily Nation if this was UPND. Imagine Gravazio Zulu reading the dead News on the DEADNBC describing this Team if it belonged to UPND. This could be very interesting. May I ask? Could this be by design or a mere coincidence? Someone is clearly telling us something about PF here. May be it is Planet 9. Anyway, this is clearly a tribal team spiced by a Gullible Kapata who is being used in the tribal battles. Conclusion: The New PF is tribal.
