President Edgar Lungu and Lusaka Mayoral Candidate Miles Sampa in Bauleni

Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa says he has 100 percent unflinching loyalty to President Edgar Lungu.

Reacting to reports that he is being lined up to mount a challenge to President Lungu for the PF presidency ahead of the 2016 elections, Mr Sampa said he has no intentions of challenging President Lungu.

“Having come out of the Mayoral election, I realise that some of those that lost both during the nomination process and some from the opposition that lost the inter party elections have now resorted to malicious propaganda meant to plant disunity for the Mayor vis-a-vis Ministers, PF top leadership and His Excellency the Republican President Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu.
For the umpteenth time but not the last, I Miles Bwalya Sampa wish to categorically state and affirm my unflinching loyalty and undivided support for our Party and The Republican President Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu now and beyond 2021,” Mr Sampa said.

“Any person or group stating or hinting the opposite, are simply expressing from their figment of wild imagination,” he said.

“I do not have interest in contesting for Presidency, Iam very content and grateful for what my party PF and the President have given me as Lusaka Mayor.”

He said through this position, he wants to contribute towards the development of the greater city of Lusaka.

To those that have dared to read the PF constitution, they will realise that I don’t even qualify to stand as a presidential candidate at the next PF convention. So Mwaloba Ilyauma in your cheap scheme simply because you have no support Pa Ground in the upcoming intraparty elections and wish to abuse my name hoping to redeem your dried up fortunes.”

“I have a job to do as Mayor and that’s to support the Vision of the President and that I shall successfully do without fear or favour, with or without propaganda from apostles of hatred.”

    • Sampa is a coward indeed and ungrateful to God who gave right-size body to be president. HH uses his figure properly.
      Kambwili is disadvantaged by his body structure, everything else is presidential.
      Sampa is waste

    • “Reacting to reports that he is being lined up to mount a challenge to President Lungu for the PF presidency ahead of the 2016 elections?” Last time I checked, we were in 2018 :/

    • How this guy ended up as Mayor is beyond me…anyway you voted for him and his mediocrity. He is not going to step on any corrupt soul in LCC or Lusaka, to him Mayor is just a stepping stone to amass wealth.

    • Sampa has no ballz to stand up to Lungu. He is spineless. He is the main reason our country is in a mess. His weakness & cowardice allowed a widow-swindling, corrupt, tyrant called Lungu to set up an illegal PF convention where Lungu was voted on thru the lifting of pangas.
      How can he challenge Lungu when just the other day he was kneeling at Lungu’s feet begging for a job?
      Sampa traveled to Europe to borrow Eurobond loans. He needs to be in the forefront giving solutions on how to repay the billions, not politicking for his belly.
      No wonder his wife left him. Mxxxm!!!

    • He actually said from the voice clip he was on with Sylvia Masebo “I have no intention of cleaning Lusaka …”

    • THAT’S THE EVIL THAT COMES FROM UPNDEADS – SOWING DISCONTENT. WELL SAID.
      The statement,
      “…to mount a challenge to President Lungu for the PF presidency ahead of the 2016 elections, Mr Sampa said he has no intentions of challenging President Lungu.”
      looks and reads dununaed reverse. We are looking to 2021 and LT is still in 2016.

  1. But to appear to make Lungu as being untouchable in your party is also wrong. In fact people who are ‘bigging’ you up this way forget too easily. I think you are a coward Miles and you are miles away from contending for Presidency. Miles go away miles away.

  2. You are about to get fired like Kambwili. Stop talking gabbage PF and Zambia does not belong to Edgar. And Edgar is not God to go unchallnged. Put away that fear, if people are talking about you that means they want you not Edgar.

  3. Of course no one within the PF dares to challenge the dictator for fear for their lives and being locked up by the state police. Lungu has made it clear that he will do whatever it takes to breach the constitution and stand for presidency when he is not eligible. This guy will be hard to get rid of and i see zambia turning into the next uganda and zimbabwe. We warned you.

    • @Zed Patriot- No one is presidential until they become president. Leadership is learnt and behavior is taught. Nothing is presidential about Trump except the presidency. Let us not mold ourselves in the image of what others have drafted. Be your own person.

    • @11.1… you were spot on until you brought in the name of one Donald J. trump. For your own good begin to like this man trump. many years after he is long gone as POTUS, small minds that supported Hillary will realise just how he stabilised the world by his toughnes and straight foward talking. Trump is just his own man, ready to break anything as long as its not in the interest of USA, AND THATS HOW A LEADER CONCENED ABOUT HIS COUNTRY SHUD BE

  6. Coming out publicly to denounce something shows cowardice. You have an option to ignore and make sure you let your boss know what your plans are. You can state clearly that you want to serve as mayor until say 2026, that is enough. Circumstances change very fast, there is a chance that the judges will rule against Lungu’s 2021 bid, what will the Zambian people see you for when you throw your hat in the ring? Sampa can make a good mayor, a president, clearly too flip-floppy for this.

  7. Not to worry i am betting on BOMANI LUSAMBO at the Convention. And i wish Mr. Mutati was in the PF as well. Presidency would look great on him as well..

  9. What happened to term limits? Is going op for third term? Are we having a Mugabe, Museveni dictatorship in Zambia? Is constitution dead? Wasn’t Lungu grandfathered in the old constitution?
    Sampa should not even talk about Presidency of anything? It’s an insult to Zambians. Even muMayor is a mistake. That guy qualifies to be a newspaper delivery boy period. We know that PF does not have quality leaders, but Sampa and Kampyongo, Davis Mwila, Davis Chama, Lusambo, what is the difference? Same trash.
