President Lungu has rejected a proposal by a group of different emissaries who went to state house to suggest he should fire Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda or Minister of Information and Broadcasting Service Chishimba Kambwili and appoint Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa in either positions.

The President says the proposal by some emissaries that he should appoint Miles Sampa as either Minister of Finance or Information is absurd saying he will not make comments on the matter.

President Lungu’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda said the President does not want to comment on the departure of former Commerce Deputy Minister Miles Sampa but only want to put it on record that prior to his resignation some emissaries approached the Head of State to make proposals that he be appointed as cabinet Minister which he refused.

Mr. Chanda said the proposal was not made by Mr. Sampa himself but other people who met the president at state house as emissaries in recent weeks and a day before Mr. Sampa resigned.

President Lungu’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, who could not disclose the names of the emissaries, said the President has decided not to comment on the resignation of Mr. Sampa from Government but noted that Mr. Sampa remains a member of the Patriotic Front.

He said the President finds the suggestion absurd because the emissaries proposed that the President appoints Mr. Sampa to his cabinet to settle the issue of the inclusion of Bemba speaking people in Cabinet saying Mr. Chikwanda and Mr. Kambwili are all Bembas hence the proposals were considered absurd.

Matero MP Miles Sampa resigned from his position as Deputy Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry but has maintained his membership with the ruling party.

  1. This is not making. But is Chikwanda and Chimbwili not bemba? This is not adding up. State house is just trying to create a story to discredit Miles Sampa. I don’t support Miles Sampa but on this one I am on his side. The guy is just being discredited by state house for resigning from government.

    • The whole president issuing such a reckless statement sure. Ok there were emissaries but what is that got to do with us ba president. Surely ba Lungu how many other emissaries have you received since you became president? So now you want the people to find wrong in ba Sampa because of this careless statement. That is why Zed politics. Ba Sampa expect more arsenal against and towards you. These mafias who you called friends will break you soon. Just like Mpombo, he resigned and they attacked him heavily until he entered chimbokaila. Soon there will be cases of corruption coming your way so prepare yourself.

    • Mr Chanda, the nation cares less about your tribal talk, it does not feed anyone. In the meantime, next time you open your month inform the nation what you are doing to reduce the inflation rate which is killing us. Ask your boss to stop politicking and start governing and show leadership on the economic front which is at all times low.

    • Everybody approved that Miles and Panji deserved full cabinet portfolios.
      So appointment of Hamunene and Monde is tribal, not performance based?

    • One only has to see how even Kambwili gave a cautious response to the resignation that it has rattled the PF. Rachael, who is very much in-touch with the grassroots knows Miles has a lot of support on the ground and is being truthful about it.

    • That’s Miles Sampa for you, a spoiled brat who stamps his feet and throws tantrums in haste when he doesn’t have his way. I wonder if he is last born in his family! But government is not his father’s house!

  3. Politics yabu fontini here. Tribal stuupidity at play all the time. We never heard of Government talking about tribes until Edgar Lungu became President.

    Only emissaries to appoint Dora Slitty were accepted.

    Anyway, Iam not even Bemba but dont subcribe to tribal shiit!

  7. On this one, I think State House statement is true. Knowing the insatiable appetite for power for some of our Zambian tribes, I wouldn’t be surprised.

  9. As they say, you have to be a UPND cadre to qualify for absurd reasoning. If you are not one I am afraid that you will never understand them, but never mind and don’t waste your time trying. Somehow, they think that kind of reasoning and even uncivil language is what will them look smart and popular, just visit social places even weddings or shopping centres and it will not take you a moment before you notice them by their boisterous attitude. Even in government offices, they simply cannot keep their mouths shut and carry out government business diligently. They not realise that it actually decampaigns their leadership. Fortunately, that kind of reasoning belongs to a tiny minority.

    • @hopelessness … I SUPPOSE YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF TO BE OBJECTIVE AND EDUCATED? LOL YOUR COMMENT SUGGESTS AN INCLINATION OF SYMPATHY OR SUPPORT FOR THE PF. REALLY YOU ARE THE EDUCATED AMONG US. KEKEKEKE! WITH THEIR DISMAL PERFORMANCE AND OBVIOUS FAILUTE YOU STILL SUPPORT PF AND YOU HAVE THE AUDACITY TO CALL OTHERS CADRES. IF YOU WANT TO SEE WHAT A CADRE LOOKS LIKE TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR. I USED TO BE PF BUT BECAUSE I AM NOT A CADRE I ADMIT THE FAILURE OF THE PF AND WITHDREW MY SSUPPORT. THAT IS OBJECTIVE TO STAND BY AND SUPPORT FAILURE IS BEING A CADRE. PF HAS FAILED AND UNTIL THERE IS A CHANGE OF LEADERSHIP THEY NEED TO GO!!!!!

  10. This childish and foolish statement from Lungu just confirms how Lungu and his minions have been deeply wounded hurt and pained by Sampa’s resignation – it’s a fatal wound for 2016!!
    It has been almost a week now since Miles resigned but the mother fu.cker Amos Chanda has come with more than 10 incoherent statements on the same issue – what’s wrong with Lungu? A President but no brains! Compare Miles to Kambwili – and you choose Kambwili (it like choosing Barabas)!!

  11. For sure ba Lungu don’t be so petty as to start fighting battles that are not there. Just do your work and people will appreciate you and not Sampa. But if you are not doing according to peoples’ expectations they will think sampa is a better candidate than yourself, and if you know you are what it takes you can’t start getting gittery over Sampa’s resignation.

  12. This is being very childish, State house is privy to secrets and why reveal such only to create division amongest the bembas and hate. No please we deserve better and matured officals at State house. Lungu you have just failed and looking for any excuse to gain cheap popularity. Divide and Rule will not work. It was Global, Triblism, what next.

  13. President has decided not to comment on the resignation of Mr. Sampa from Government

    Hahahahahaha, ironic!
    The fact that you have commented on the issue contradicts your statement. You have even gone further to spill the beans about the so called emissaries. Amos, aren’t you the spokesman for Lungu? You are his mouth piece and as such, we the well-meaning citizens take whatever you speak as Lungu’s words.

  14. Miles has been mistreated by Lungu. Just because he almost got the PF Presidency! So now people know at Lungu is very vindictive and his prayer day a sham!! We always knew that he has not forgiven his enemies. So why drag the rest of us to prayer day when you have not repented Lungu?

  15. This is not PF. It is MMD thieves riding on PF ticket. Things are bad at grassroot level, nafiLungula including the kwacha because original founders of the party are being replaced every day.

    2016 is the deadline for the mess. Convention is urgently needed to remove the mess or else 2017 it will still be ukuLungula.

  16. Zambians are very civilised to buy these cheap lies. We are not fools. We shall show you the exit door in 2016!!!!

  17. For, 2016 is time for PF to cry.

    We removed MMD from power in 2011 but Lungu has brought back the same people we rejected.

    Original members/ founders of PF are being fired everyday and being replaced with MMD recycled material.

    We zambians are very civilised, we shall press your exit button next year

  18. It pains but i must admit that AM DISAPPOINTED WITH ba kateka…without the Bemba Vote Edgar would never be president. He cant be making tribal comments just because he hates Sampa so much. He should not forget that Miles has more following in PF than Ba Kateka. Ask ba Kambwili, he will tell you the truth.

    If you dont reconcile with Sampa. Am voting for change with UPND. FULL STOP.

  19. Very usel—ess pipo advising the president.Nowonder they are found drinking around 03hrs and shooting pipo anyhow.The president is not normal.I’m sorry we need a new leader in PF.This is the reason the kwacha is depreciating like toilet papaer.Miles sampa can’t do that.Please sampa keep quiet n don’t respond.The president is not honest.We PF members are annoyed and frustrated of what’s happening.and lungu should know that he has destroyed the country.Infact we’ll not vote if he is playing with ulubemba.He should change and if he thinks by cheating pipo will vote 4 him the he’ll be become da first president to rule 1 year.Indeed this man is chakolwa.He is unfair to Sampa.We genuine members are trying to unite da party but uselessssss chaps sorround the president are making…

  20. I’m also telling ba Chakolwa that if he won’t unite with Sampa jst bcoz he is more popoular than him,i’ll not vote for PF.I’ll stay home coz i don’t also believe in UPND.I start campaigning in our strong holds n tell pipo not to vote 4 PF.Why are u trying to cheat us that sampa sent emissaries to state house?Again u’re trying to confuse Kambwili and chikwanda so that they can hate Sampa.ooppps bembas are not stupi—–d like that.We are very alert n stop tribal politics bcoz next year u’ll leave state house.U have just killed yo self ba Lungu.Don’t use pipo.Guy scott indeed saw no leadership in u.We are sorry 4 letting Guy Scott down indeed the man has wisdom.Please lungu eat well next year kuya bebele.

  21. Imwe ba UPND, is it logical for you to be so engulfed with someone in another party and leave your failed leader HH at the helm and confusion of your party. HH is llike some opposition known leader in some country not too far from Zambia who thought by aligning and selling the country to emissaries, he will one day lead that nation, am sure you the rest of the story.
    At first this chimbwi called HH used to say “am Obama”, “am young” without first analysing the situation. Where are these slogans today? Now he is busy saying he Donald Trump, why can the f00l be himself, is he too ugly to face even his brain washed carders?
