Matero PF Member of Parliament, Miles Sampa has been reprimanded and made to apologies in Parliament for absconding sittings for 22 days without permission.

  7. What a stoopid slap on the wrist! According to Zambian labour law if you abscond from work for 16 days continuously you are supposed to be automatically dismissed. Now this guy- you are not even docking his tax paid salary. A tase!

  9. And then you guys sack workers at UTH for going on strike when this kama guy is technically absent from work for a stupid and childish reason .The Panga Family ought to be ashamed of themselves . An apology is not good enough. It is just a slap on the wrist .Cut his wages by 22 days and sack him from government. Lungu needs to sober up and see things using lenses of a common man looking for a job and can’t get one because this very Sampa accepted a budget to freeze jobs in government.
