Miles Sampa gestures the DF symbol during the radio programme on Hot FM

Announcing their defection in Kasama’s Location Suburb at a named councillor’s residence, the cadres charged that the PF has lost its founding vision of being a beacon of hope to all Zambians.

They alleged that following the death of founding party president, Michael Sata, who later became republican president, the PF has embraced people it accused of having mismanaged the country’s resources.

Radio Mano reports that the defectors said the same people that the PF has embraced have since hijacked the party, stressing that it is against this background that they decided to join the Miles Sampa led Democratic Front-DF, saying it is the only hope for Zambia.

And receiving the defectors DF-Kasama chairperson, Zebron Kashiba said the massive defections from the PF shows that the ruling party is politically finished.

Mr. Kashiba, who is former Kasama District Political Secretary, was the first to ditch PF in Northern Province to join newly formed DF.

    • @Factor, Spot on after the President assented to the constitution these guys have realized that they are now irrelevant hence joining an opposition which probably take ten years to form gov`t. By then they would have finished there Grade 12.

      PF is a big party, it will still remain strong.

    • PF needs to enroll back in the school of Zambian politics. In view of all these defections, they, and not the opposition, now appear the most vulnerable.

    • Folks all these mock defections. Wait for real defections after dissolution of parliament.

      Biggest winner of defections after dissolution of parliament will be the only organised UPND party.

      People ‘s anguish in Zambia has started scattering PF in all directions.

      VIVA UPND AND THE HH TEAM

    • If the story is true, why not disclose the councillor’s residence and the name of the councillor himself and those who have defected? Continue living in the dream world Mr Km

    • Ba Miles Sampa does not a have a party. Last time I checked his DF was de-registered. It’s true those councillors do not have grade 12 certificates because if they did, they would know this already!

    • @1.1 THEY ARE NOT MENTIONED BECAUSE THERE WERE NO DEFECTIONS AT ALL. AS WE HAVE READ THAT THEY WERE RECEIVED BY SOME CHAP HE WAS GOING TO ANNOUNCE THEIR NAMES. BUT, AGAIN WHICH PARTY HAVE THEY DEFECTED TO AS DF HAS BEEN DE-REGISTERED? THE FACT THAT THE DEFECTORS DID NOT EVEN KNOW THAT DF HAS BEEN DE-REGISTERED TELLS YOU THAT THE DEFECTORS ARE SO ILLITERATE AND BLIND WHO DON’T KNOW THAT THE DITCH IS IN FRONT OF THEM. ALTERNATIVELY, THEY DO NOT HAVE GRADE 12 CERTIFICATES SO WHEN THE PRESIDENT SIGNED OFF THE NEW CONSTITUTION IT WAS END OF THE ROAD TO THEM. AND DECIDED TO MOVE WHERE SAMPA IS DISHING OUT FREE MONEY- SANGWAPO.

  1. While I agree that the PF has embraced new comers and that they have hijacked the party, it is equally wrong for founders if indeed they are, to defect.They are supposed to remain steadfast and fight this confusion amicably.It is true senior PF members have been sidelined as is evidenced by composition of the presidential entourages in and outside the country trips.BaKambwili, BaMwila, na BaLubinda nabambiko micitepo cimo.I am not inciting you to rebel, but discuss this in your PF meetings.

  2. It very nosenscuall for anyone to claim that Mile Sampa is not a factor you will see where Edgar and his Sangwapo group will go.
    So this senseless for priest will say, he is not factor.PF has been destroyed by Edgar Just like RB destroyed MMD.
    There is nothing to doubt about that only BAKANDILE bakwa LUNGU will rubish that.

  3. It is interesting that talk of defections by PF members to join Sampa’s faction is merely revolving around the Bemba speaking people. It will not be a surprise to Zambians when the faction led by Guy Scott, Kaseba, GBM Sampa which rebelled against the candidature of Edgar Lungu, later regroups as soon as Parliament is dissolved. If the Bembas and the Tongas think they are superior to other ethnic groups in Zambia, what are the survival chances of the peoples of Central, Copperbelt, Eastern, Western, Northwestern, when the either the Bembas or the Tonga grab the Republican Presidency? FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

    • We could vote for a Tonga Presidency for now and see how they deal with agriculture. We have tried those thieves, sorry I meant Bembas, for too long. Their nepotism is sickening and they have stolen the whole treasury. Madness is doing the same thing and hoping for a different result.

  4. Even in UPND, then founder members are sidelined. GBM just joined and became vice President. I know people who have died as ordinary members in UPND, yet they suffered for it.

  5. PF cadres are really crazy. They were shouting at the top of mountains ati MMD was evil and corrupt and needed to be kicked out. Zambians did that and now they are back ati we can’t win without MMD. Just five years later. Now which normal person would join them in this confusion. Cadres I understand get some 50 kwachas and chibuku to cause mayhem and support these insincere politicians but a normal person who has been to school trumpeting this PF confusion is really shocking.

  7. thats why the only way PF can at least have a chance of emerging second in these elections is by having a pact during first round otherwise coming second in the first round is debatable going by how PF is unstable in its strongholds of Northern and CB. i think the only places where PF is still very popular are shanty compounds in Lusaka and CB and Luapula. the rest is really debatable. so the idea of getting the Eastern MMD MPs is the only hope for PF to replace the ones they are losing. as for UPND, they need to make sure that they get the Garry Nkombos to stand in Lusaka, central for them to have a good chance of winning this elections. should UPND think this is a matter of a run off, they will get a shock of their lives if they allow a re-run. that will be their end mark my words. you…

  8. Is this daily exodus and mass walkout from PF genuine or stagemanaged? Nonetheless, every vote counts.

  9. Things fall apart. The center cannot hold. The chimbuya between Bembas and Nyanjas or Nyasas is just for convenience. But once Bembas have their own, they will not support you.

  12. Meanwhile everyone knows that Sampa is a sponsored project aimed at dividing Pf votes to give way to a Tonga grouping. People are sacrificed not knowing that by supporting miles they are indirectly supporting upnd. The beneficiary is miles because he has already pocketed the cash and the big loser is hh because he is losing again

  13. Yes they may not be grade twelve but remember that they are voters. They can’t stand as councillors or mps but they can vote. That is what makes the difference. so their defection is has an impact the PF. Watch out Frank Bwalya.

  14. Watch out Miles.People are jostling for your perceived money which they think you have.Once you are milked dry,all money hunters will vanish.Your colleages,Emanuel Kasonde ( MHSRIP ),B.Y Mwila ( MHSRIP ),Dean Mung’omba ( MHSRIP ) and the surviving Enock Kavindele learnt the hard way.In Zambia,money moves from candidates to followers while in Europe and America,money flows from supporters to candidates campaign fund committees.

  15. THE LOSER IN ALL THIS IS ELIAS CHIPIMO Jnr. I THOUGHT UNCLE ELIAS WERE INTELLIGENT TO SEE BEYOND HIS NOSE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER FOR UNCLE ELIAS TO JOIN THE RULING PARTY. OR AT LEAST BACK THE RULING PARTY IF IT’S STATE HOUSE HE WANTS, DEAD OR ALIVE. ALAS, HIS GOOD NAME AS THE MOST INTELLIGENT AND REASONABLE OPPOSITION LEADER HAS JUST GONE INTO THE TRIBAL DRAINAGE. NOW, HE WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH TRIBALISM WHICH MEANS HE HAS CUT HIS POLITICAL LIFE VERY SHORT. UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCE, HE NOW CAN NEVER WIN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS. WASTE PART OF ZAMBIAN POLITICS- NO FORESIGHT AT ALL.
