Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa has announced that he is withdrawing from the race to recontest the position of Lusaka Mayor.
In a letter addressed to the Lusaka PF District Committee and copied to PF Secretary General, Mr Sampa said he has decided to abandon the Mayoral race.
Mr Sampa said this was done after consultations with his wife, his mother, his children, his sisters, his brothers, the extended family and friends.
“On the 12th and 16th March, 2021, I lodged in my application with Lusaka PF District and Provincial offices to re-contest as Mayor of the City of Lusaka in the upcoming 12th August General Elections. I attach herewith a copies of the said application letter for your ease of reference. After further consultations with my wife, my mother, my children, my sisters, my brothers, my extended family and my friends, I wish to withdraw the aforementioned application forthwith,” Mr Sampa said.
“Accordingly, please consider the application Null and Void hereon,” he said.
This is the miles I know!
I dont think you will deafet Tamba for the constituence position ,is it because of the lose you suffered yesterday? Anyway good lucky.
Sampa was more interested in sound bites in front of cameras instead of holding meeting to find out rootcause of problems and resolve herein ……….
Thank you for your letter. The party wishes you well in your future endeavours.
To the rest of you, remember that the pf party is bigger than one individual. Twalumba
Can someone update on free WIFI project, was this delivered? I remember the noise around this project and I seem to have lost track.
“Miles Sampa unveils an ambitious 100 days plan for Lusaka, promises free Wifi”
“Miles Sampa launches free WiFi pilot project in Lusaka”
“Sampa ups the ante for his Free Wifi Promise, Vows not to Shave until it is delivered”
I reserve my further comments, until any well informed person updates.
HA HA GOOD RIDDANCE
ALSO MINISTER WILL CUT OFF HIS FINGER IF LOADSHEDDING IS HERE IN MARCH KIKIKI
He has just been asked to go back to Matero and pave way for someone else as Mayor. He will probably shave now. Mile Sampa is useless. So many things he has failed to do in Lusaka and he concetrated too much on removing the hybrid chicken on great east road. The whole Mayor losing to a chicken.
Lusaka deserves better than this boy he has had more success in increasing his profile and his personal life oh and his Boba TV…he can not delegate, the City council officials dont like him. I said it after the death of sleepy Willy that Lusaka needed an independent candidate. What kind of Mayor moves his office to the CBD so he can oversee refuse collection ..this how myopic he is and all those plants he planted are dried away like his childish vision.
In Zambia we need to review the powers of the Mayor he needs to have control of the Police, the council…you can not do anything tangible if you have a dull insecure Local Govt Minister like that Charles Banda.
Sampa should just join forces with Simon Mwewa and launch a TV show for comedy ….Sata was not a fooooool to appoint his nephew as a deputy Minister he knew the boy was useless.
In as much as I don’t agree with miles on certain issues, I think some of the comments here are too hurtful and just plain wrong. Let us learn to remember that you are dealing with a human. You don’t need to like spmeones views but at least you can respect them. Grow up ba upnd diaspora
Today HaTarino wants to praise my father MC Sata and yet on his other comments just few hours ago he was criticising him. Even when he was alive you insulted him and yet today you proudly put your ugly fingers on your keyboard and type those hypocritical words. You deserve to be punched in your balls
The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “Don’t feed the trolls.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.
You should try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how poorly they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re not worth your time of day.
Data is the cause of all these problems we have, the man was power hungry even when he knew he was dying and left this dull one ball dander head of a ka worst president on earth… Just yellow teeth teeth everywhere, ifiko
But umu guyiz Miles chipuba zooona…
ZK SAYS SOME COMMENTS ON HERE ARE TOO HURTFUL ??? OMG ARE HIS COMMENTS NOT WORSE ???
CALLING PEOPLES WIVES AND CHILDREN DRAGONS AND BACKWARDS
AND NEEDING A BULLIT TO THE HEAD ETC ETC
YOU ARE MENTAL BELIEVE ME YOUR TIME IS UP AS A POLITICAN
AGAIN HOW STUPID IS STUPID
It’s not surprising, Miles Sampa has tried hard to seal the financial leakages at LCC. Today services at LCC are express, you don’t have to spend days to renew your Business Permit. Workers are paid on 18th of every month. Now thugs that illegally collect money from markets, bus stations and illegal bus loading sites are in charge of the PF Provincial Committee. The illegal toll plazas in Kanyama will now spread to other townships. Miles can’t expect anything good from Kamba’s committee. I support his decision
Go for it Miles. I thought you had a plan and for sure that plan will soon be known by everyone. The greatest weapon in a war is not how sophisticated your weapons are but surprise.
We is still waiting for you which will be a big surprise to many.
tikki – Don’t feed the troll
I just saw a live broadcast on my feed showing Sampa with a job of people behind in front of the camera picking refuse with Hi-vis jacket…that how silly the man is he has all these people watching him cleaning instead of encouraging everyone to participate…there are no enforcement of policies like all of these publicity seeking politicians immediately he leaves office in August its back to square one as there are no structures in place…cadres will still be collecting all the revenue instead of the council.
Monze Halwindi- What plan is that? So long as you have PF thugs collecting revenue at bus stops, markets, leasing out pavement space to street vendors you are just scratching on the surface…its March and August will soon be here….do not be hoodwinked by cheap publicity stunts go to Namibia or Botswana and see how it is to have serious councils and Mayors.
Excellent, time to give others a chance to stand. Matero is good for Sampa, he will win without a doubt. Best wishes to you Miles!!
PLEASE TELL ME WHO IS PTER SIBANDA WHO CAME FROM FROM ZIMBABWE ????????
