The ruling Patriotic Front will soon introduce membership cards for all its members, party Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has disclosed.
And Former PF Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa will be reinstated as a member of the party this December.
Mrs. Phiri revealed that the party has resolved to introduce party membership cards as a way of enforcing discipline in the party.
She said the party leadership will be making an announcement on the issue of membership cards.
The PF Deputy Secretary General was speaking during a live Let the People Talk programme on Radio Phoenix.
Mrs. Phiri said the party leadership is worried that some unscrupulous people mostly youths are committing crimes whilst wearing PF regalia and pretending to be PF members.
She said the PF leadership is worried that unruly conduct by some youths purporting to be members of the PF has gone unabated.
Founded in 2001 by late President Michael Sata, the PF has never had any membership cards.
Mr. Sata believed that membership cards would open up PF Members to harassment and victimization by the then ruling MMD government.
And Mrs. Phiri has disclosed that Miles Sampa’s imposed leave from the PF will come to an end this December.
She said by December, Mr Sampa who applied to return to the PF would have served the three-year mandatory period required for one to be reinstated.
Mrs. Phiri said the PF is happy that old members that left the party to join the Rainbow Party and Mr. Sampa’s NDF are now returning to the party.
Poor miles sampa lost sheep going back home after eating dry grass for 3 years
Let us all agree as Zambians not to engage in violence. It is a degrading act. Police should deal firmly with perpetrators regardless of Party affiliation. For PF cadres can do anything with impunity.
@Ndobo kkkkkkkkk , dry grass.
People forget that Miles was voted PF President in Kabwe.
Miles Sampa is all over the place. He does not know whether he is going or coming.
1. He quit PF
2. He formed his own part
3. He formed an alliance with Chipimo’s NAREP
4. Turned into a priest/father/pastor or Jesuit
5. came back to plead to join PF
6. Went into oblivion
7. Was then spotted hanging around the same PF guys he was showering abuse at
8. NOW he is crawling back into PF
What a waste of a seemingly intelligent guy who could have even been President.
Miles get a life
PF now coming out of the woods where they have been hiding. But hiding from what, if not from their own shadow?
Miles Sampa isn’t a Mnangagwa Emmerson is he ( question mark, sorry the question mark on this laptop I am using is not working). OR is Miles Sampa now thinking I should have stayed in PF so that I would have been a Mnangangwa. PF watch out, you will be caught out this guys is coming with an agenda. His appetite for being President has not been satisfied and he is now thinking that with Kambwili out of the picture and the Mnanangagwa lesson he will pull it off. If I was PF I would not let such a guy anywhere near the PF Secretariat.
Yamunyokola njala! The strongest force in Zambian politics…Njala…
A m I reading this correctly, you mean a Party like PF doesn’t have any form of records as who are truly PF Members? Really, no Membership Cards? There should be the core Members and Sympathizers and the core members are recognized via a members card. They pay annual fees for being a member. I am surprised.
This explains, why the PF members think if you have a different opinion, then you are UPND.
I like Miles and I knew he was coming back, he’s a brave warrior. Manje kwasala ba GBM. As for Kambwili, forget!
Mmmmh! So all these neanderthals like njimbu, terrible and ndanje are just manner less, cardless, careless, cadres, not even pf recognizes them, then why do they cry for recognition too much?
We people we forget easily, Mugabe was elected and left people with land is forgotten and hated,,, unelected mnangwangwa like lungu is ‘loved’ and cheered
He is going back to eat some more before he jumps to UPND or Socialist Party.
Lungu and PF are doomed.
All PF ministers will be behind bars in 2022
This is what happens when you are a mosquito…you only know how to live off taxpayers money …very soon Sampa will dishing out cash like those PF kids!!
This is not democracy, whereby people who hold different views from the party in Government are denied access to Govt jobs and tenders? Such practices are what has led to stagnation in Africa.
If Africa is to develop, it has to move away from such. Let us make full use of all our people’s talents, whether or not they share the same views as the party in Govt.
We should be grooming future leaders and there are 3 that any party among the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise should embrace and start grooming to effectively take over in the near future. These three are Miles Sampa, Mulenga Sata and Vincent Mwale.
We should keep these guys in the loop, give me them as many responsibilities as possible, rotate them as much as possible and cross train them on every opportunity we get. Once well trained, these kids have the ability to offer strong leadership and stir our enterprise in the right direction.
Either one of them is a great candidate for a future President & CEO of the Zambian Enterprise … let’s invest in them. A country is only as good as the future leaders it can produce.
Zambia Is Greater Than Any Single One Of Us ~ B R…
Miles is the next PF presidential candidate. Lungu simply wants to give it back to where he got it. #Watchthisspace
No party cards…mmmmm. Interesting way to run a party
Miles Sampa, yes.
Membership Cards, no, no, no.
You are right, even membership cards can be “hacked”. Let us just be vigilant in preventing our party regalia from being abused.
You really needs membership cards, what I’ve seen mwandi. Some members in various constituencies have made cards that read ‘presidential security, security wing, committee member, party affairs’. They are all self appointed to various positions. What’s more strange is e.g. at roadblocks or checkpoints they just show their phony party cards to traffic officers or RATSA officers and they are given a pass.
Hope this membership card aspect will bring some sanity in the PF party and the country. I have seen cars with a number plate PF??? Makes me wonder if the police or RATSA can stop a car with such plate. Crimes can be committed by occupants of such vehicles but no one would dare stop such a vehicle
I need a card corresponding to my membership coming from 2001 when we could not agree to the awakening of Mwanawasa from his comatose slumber.
Miles Sampa is so unprincipled. Political prostitute
ba Miles tabalakula, now he can smell an opportunity of becoming a president in pf than in upnd! this wat he was he needed to do wait for his time en no rush!! impulse decisions! as for the cards, NO the indiscipline witnessed among the youths have nothing to do with not having ID, Sata (mhsrp) was so clever not to introduce party cards so as to prevent mmd from faking defections!! He then only adopted a slogan PF ni pa mutima!!! thats why i say the current crop of politicians cant match the old folks!!!
Miles Sampa my foot!
Why didn’t you say as it is…” miles Samoa my ass”
Waste of money which will really need after you hand over government to another party in 2021. Just my opinion….take it or leave it.

Cards, no no no. Enemies will print replicals and toss them away claiming they have resigned from PF. True membership is in one’s mind.
Any law breaker should just be arrested whether carrying a card or not.
So that’s what pf does imwe bantu.
Lungu 1st make poverty history then introduce your member cards to the “Zambian museum of by-gone poverty”
Too bad for Miles and his fellow cohorts, it is too late, the PF is fast sinking
They’re testing the water, or they need the money.
I like the humility shown by Mr. Sampa, the man has brought himself down to earth, he deserves to be re-instated. I’m sure he has repented and learnt something although in a hard way. Let Mulenga Sata, Guy Scot, Namulambe etc follow suit. Let them swallow their pride and go back to where they belong so they remain relevant politically, we need such kind of humble leaders in our country. Equally PF must embrace them as their own, don’t stigmatize or look down upon them. For PF to win in 2021 they need numbers and so their door must be open to them
They will earn my respect when they start productive talk and policy talk, all this talk by Mumbi is just crap she had to say for the day to make herself relevant in PF.
The idea of cards i think like many other have said its not a good idea ,for miles double yes because even ck and many others including hh cant much him, he is a politician ,I can see the A team come 2021 ,lungu ,mutati,sampa,lubinda,kalaba,kampyongo,frank b,lusambo,musukwa,chiteme,kangombe,nathan,chitalu c,kapata, only this names upnd again it will be the same story of three provinces no doubt ,wait and see.
Cards dont make sense at all. I am sure the owner and founder of the party MC Sata is turning in his grave over cards. He never liked them. MHSRIP.
Introducing cards would be detrimental to PF. There’s a genuine reason the founder of PF didn’t want cards for his members. The reason to have cards in PF ain’t that sound. If they were, the founder would have introduced them after becoming president. Don’t kill his legacy like this.
Paramount Chief Hazaluza Hagain should join too so that he can be given a position of Section Chairman in Namwala! That will be better than deceiving people and being deceived that he is presidential material. He can’t even be an MP in my view!
Good move and my PF card number should be 10 or 100!!!
We shall soon welcome Hon.Miles Sampa back home.please adopt him in 2021 in Matero where Lloyd Mulenga Kazhiya is doing nothing.this man simply won in Matero because people just vote for PF candidate!!!
As for HH,am sure today he has believed our words that only God makes one a president.Mr Mnangangwa the new Zimbabwean president has been made president by the people of Zimbabwe just like ECL got it in Zambia minus FIGHTING FOR IT!!!HH has fought for the presidency since 2006 in vain!!it will be worse for HH in 2021 because some politicians(Miles Sampa,Guy Scott,Mulenga Sata,etc) who won HH some votes in PF strongholds are ditching upnd!! WINA AZALILA IN 2021!!!
NJIMBU BB 2017!!!
@ Daudi, the founder of PF indicated at that time that one did not require a card to belong to the party was clever approach because the party was still in it’s infants. I am sure he would have as well gone this route now that PF has grown and just for the record to know how many genuine (registered card carrying) members are there. It’s good information for one to make plans.
