We sent out the below media statement regarding our former alliance partner and my young brother Miles Sampa.
6th September 2016
We take note of the democratic decision taken by the United Democratic Front President Miles Sampa yesterday.
As UPND, we would like to sincerely thank him for the great partnership him and his party members brought through the Alliance we entered into via a Memorandum of Understanding.
True to our Memorandum of Understanding, Miles Sampa did not join the UPND, but we had a great alliance that made us traverse the country and campaigned together, while recognising that he was also a leader of his own political party with membership in Zambia.
We would like to sincerely thank him for the extra votes he brought for us through our working relationship, and we would now wish him the best as he grows his political party or indeed in any decision he would like to take as it is his democratic right to do so.
