Lungu with Sampa
Lungu with Sampa

DEPUTY Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry Miles Sampa has called on young people to ensure that they get national registration cards (NRCs) and register as voters.

Mr Sampa said it is important that young people register as voters in large numbers so that they could take part in next year’s tripartite elections.

Speaking after inspecting the NRC issuance exercise in Matero, Mr Sampa said the youth need NRCs and voters’ cards to vote President Lungu back into office next year.

“It is through you young people that we can vote back President Lungu as head of State; through you that Miles Sampa will be voted back together with all the serving councillors,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Sampa has warned business owners and traders to stop quoting goods and services in United States dollars.
He said Government does not need to re-introduce Statutory Instrument number 55 to compel businesses owners to quote in local currency.

“We don’t want to be forced to go that way. It is so simple when you go to South Africa or United States of America, you cannot be allowed to use Kwacha because it is not legal tender,” he said.

Mr Sampa said entrepreneurs should be patriotic and respect the laws of the country.

The deputy minister also said Government is firmly in the driving seat to steer the economy of the country to greater economic prosperity. He said this will be made possible if all Zambians become active agents of development.

And Mr Sampa, who is Matero member of Parliament, has launched a K215,000 worth ablution block at Chunga Market, which was constructed through Constituency Development Fund.

“Our late President Michael Sata used to tell us that we people in communities should always show people compassion and build toilets for markets,” he said.

Mr Sampa said the first thing people of Matero decided to do was to build toilets in all the markets so that they could trade in hygienic environments.

  1. Deep down his heart, Miles Sampa knows that Edgar Lungu is a failed leader who has failed to provide his daughter Tasila with Menstrual Pads. We dont want Lazy people this time, we want people that can help Zambians get out of the economic messy that has been caused by Rupiah Banda and his Son Edgar Lungu.

    • @Nelson,
      You must be a product of some broken home without culture but anger and self rejection. FYI, Tasila is Graduate of a top USA university in the East coast with internationally valued Master’s degree. She had a professional career in the US for years earning big grudas. It’s no surprise that institutions such as UNESCO choose to work with her instead of you trapped in hatred and incidiaries.
