UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and Democratic Front leader Miles Sampa gesture to their supporters who came to witness the signing of an election pact between UPND and DF.

Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa wish to have his political party registered has again hit a setback.

This time around, the Registrar of Societies has rejected Mr Sampa’s application to change the name of his party from the deregistered Democratic Front to the United Democratic Front.

Chief Registrar of Societies Thandiwe Mhende announced in an interview that Mr Sampa’s application was rejected in accordance with the Section 9 of the Societies Act.

“Yes I can confirm that my office did receive an application to register the United Democratic Front but we later on realised that another political party under the name United Democratic Front was in the process of registration which meant that we would have two parties using the same acronym which is against the provisions of Section 9 of the Societies Act,” Ms Mhende explained.

Ms. Mhende also revealed that Mr Sampa has now applied under a new name the People’s Democratic Front (PDF).

    • Indeed Mrs. Mhende, nobody know tomorrow, Sampa might just be your future boss. The way you are treating him, don’t you think you are being unfair to him. Remember he is also a citizen. Tomorrow it will be you being treated like that by these same politicians. Timely warning and friendly warning warning mama.

    • Yes, he wants FRONT at the END!

      The man is an iddi.it! He cannot even register a party and he expects Zambians to trust him to run the WHOLE COUNTRY??

      What a clown!

      He should try BACK instead of front. Or maybe BACKSIDE. Or better still ARSEHOLE!

      That would be the most appropriate!

  7. Nichola you are the biggest fool on this blog , do you even know how companies or parties are registered.
    you provide three options and depending on the finding they will tell you which ones are existing.When they did they decide to broadcast this rubbish. this is the work of scared drunkards,anyways it all starts like this he will one day make it.

  9. Miles should write down atleast 15 names in advance so that when they refuse, he immediately shows the next name. Pa last ba zanvela soni beka and give him. I don’t know why they are treating him like this. They think they are stopping him when they are making him popular.
