The ruling patriotic Front has described as misinformation being orchestrated in some sections of the media on reports that their Mayor candidate had promised to deliver free wifi to the resident of Lusaka within 100 days.

In a media statement made available to the media, PF said that what their candidate promised was to start the process for the free WiFi project within 100 days and that he did not say the project would be completed within 100 days as insinuated

Below is the full statement

Lusaka, Zambia, 28th June 2018 – Patriotic Front salutes the media houses which attended the maiden appearance of its Mayoral candidate Hon Miles Bwalya Sampa when he featured on the PF Interactive Forum on 27th June 2018 where he laid bare his vision which is anchored in the grand Party manifesto for 2016-2021.

For the purpose of clarity, we will address also the misinformation being orchestrated in some sections of the media. This is with regard to some of the pronouncements made by the PF Mayoral candidate, Hon Miles Sampa, as part of his vision for Lusaka.

Hon Sampa said he would ensure that Lusaka City Council starts the process for the free WiFi project within 100 days. He did not say the project would be completed within 100 days as insinuated

In addressing the need for the council to generate income for improved delivery of services, Hon Sampa said he would ensure the rates reflect the economic value as opposed to rates which do not make business sense for the Council. He made a strong case for stakeholder engagement in order to arrive at a win-win situation.

His statement did not mention what is being falsely implied by the said media houses, which is that in 100 days he would hike rates for medium businesses and malls to increase revenue for the council.

Lastly, Hon Sampa was at a barbershop/salon where he met with many other customers and members of the public, among them was former UPND Parliamentary Candidate for Chilanga Constituency Cde Charmaine Musonda.

In the spirit of good faith and mature democratic practice, he exchanged greetings and took pictures together with other members of the Campaign team.

This is as it should be with evolved political contests. We are pleased that while we may belong to different political parties, we are not enemies and must continue being cordial with each other.

This is the unity we would like to see among all our members and all Zambians in all sections of society as we move towards the heroes and unity holiday. We can disagree without becoming personally disagreeable.

    • People who vote for such PF need to have their heads examined.

      Mbandu-Killer was part of M. Sata PF00Lish campaign team that
      – promised more money in our pockets in 90 days
      – eradicate youth unemployment
      – Revive Mulungushi textiles, NCZ, Mansa batteries etc
      – Govern based on 10 commandments
      – Chase away tu ma Chinese.

      2,000 Days later
      – Zambians have no money & a huuuge debt,
      – a collapsed economy,
      – our desperate jobless youths are dying under collapsed black mountain & called Scavengers
      – PF is now a corrupt den of thieves in Govt looting treasury empty
      – Now have millions of tu ma Chinese ra.ping our minerals & mukula trees. State house is now a conference room for tu ma Chinese.

    Please be advised that voting for this guy is putting the Bose of all Rats in the office….no direction no drive no sense of commitment. He is after $$$$ this is guaranteed.
    UPND or Kambwili should probably be given a chance.

  4. Lusaka is twinned with:Tajikistan Dushanbe, Tajikistan, since 1966;Lebanon Beirut, Lebanon, (2018);United States Los Angeles, United States, since 1968 and Russia Izhevsk, Russia..So make Lusaka a pseudo of these cities.

  5. The fact that a BUS driver can STOP to pick you where there’s NO BUS STOP,But the same driver will REFUSE to drop you where there’s NO BUS STOP,Proves that people ONLY need you when it’s BENEFICIAL to them.

  7. Why promising things that have already been implemented. Problem Zambians you easily forget, this project started in 2016 and the company behind this free Wi-Fi in Lusaka is a a South African consortium of companies, Edgy Nicollo Group, in partnership with MTN Zambia.

  8. HE WILL JUST WIN BECAUSE HE IS PF. OTHERWISE, HE TALKS TOO MUCH, HOWBEIT UNNECESSARILY. WHY MAKE SUCH PRONOUNCEMENTS? THERE IS VERY LITTLE ANYONE CAN DO IN LUSAKA ALONE. THE MAIN PROBLEMS OF LUSAKA ARE STREET VENDING, UNCOLLECTED GARBAGE AND POOR DRAINAGE. THE REST ARE EITHER DIFFICULT TO SOLVE OF ARE NOT MAJOR PROBLEMS.

  9. These people are like the Nigerian National team who went to see their President and promised him that they will the world cup and take it to Nigeria. At least this time politicians were lied to not the other way round . This promise of free things does not add value to anybodies life but just encourages laziness .As a matter of fact the first thing these PF scum bags think about when elected is their bank accounts ,mansion and sending their relatives to foreign missions abroad .

  12. As a PF supporter i dont believe anything will change under Miles Sampa’s leadership as mayor of lusaka. This time around am going to vote for a UPND candidate in protest to the PF Government’s mismanagement of the governance of the country and grand corruption. UPND might not win the election but the fact that for the first time since i started voting for PF in 2006, this time around am taking my vote to UPND. In doing so, am advising other Lusaka residents and Zambian citizens to protest the PF poor governance and grand corruption by voting for the UPND so that thieves know that their days are numbered. Miles is not interested in serving the people but in serving his pocket, Zambia does not need such low calibre leaders anymore!
