  1. Eliminate the distance between yourself and your likely opponent. First rule of intra-party politics. This way they can challenge you without implicating themselves in your failures. Regardless of the result in the Chawama constituency Lungu walks away clean. If the PF wins Lungu takes credit for leading the PF. If they loose Miles as campaign manager takes the fall and is effectively eliminated from 2016. Grand master move by Lungu. Miles Sampa check!

  2. Cosmo has lost his mind. He carries no weight at all in politics, his popularity depends on his unnecessary drama (e.g fainting at funerals where you you are not even a family member, shame). Now, he wants to embarrass his wife kolopa style, insala yaba no musebanya mwe lesa. In short, Cosmo is a big fat joke and no one can take him seriously. He should get a real 8 to 5 job this one.

  4. MMD not participating, well, well.. as expected, PF is a big brother now. scared of entangling RB with LUNGU. Good move, it is only the courageous to dare the battle. The Blessed ones from Birth will always go for it. Just watch the space, Zambian politics unrevalling.

  5. Good move Mr. President. Let Sampa start being exposed for future attempts at pick office. Time for Sampa to remain loyal and keep the faith but should distance himself from cartel coz it can spoil him and lose track. Let him work well with Edgar. Everything has time.

  6. …Miles, you should have refused. There are looking for any reason why you should not be trusted withy with power.

    They know your ambitions. Their plan is to finish you before you realize it…Don’t trust Kambwili, Kalaba and Kapata including Kapeya and Kaingu.

  7. Destiny will always follow those it is intended just as King David who never thought about it a single day became one at the instance of God . So if Sampa will one day be President of this great Country, then it would still tress back to what God had for him from the beginning. Let Sampa not be misguided by disgruntled elements. Everything has time. After Lungu it may be even someone we may not even think of now , who knows it can be Catrherine Namugala?
