Matero Member of Parliament, Miles Sampa has disclosed that he is likely to form a party and will announce his position in the next two days.

Sampa who was on Sunday in Kasama to consult with Paramount Chief Chitimukulu, said he refuse to attend the Press Conference as he was aggrieved that fundamental issues according to him, were not attended to.

He said he had various options before him that included formation of a political party or reconciliation.

He also hinted that he might form his own party and carry officials to build a party that will contest the 2016 elections.

But has alleged that no genuine reconciliation had taken place.

Addressing party officials in Kasama, Sampa disclosed that he had a three-hour meeting with Mwine Lubemba, Paramount Chief Chitimukulu on Sunday on 21st December 2014.

But Mwine Lubemba, Paramount Chief Chitimukulu is said to have snubbed the proposal to solicit his help for a formation of the party or the request to support any other

And former Deputy Secretary General Anthony Kasolo has attacked the General Conference that elected Edgar Lungu, as Party President was a sham since the election was done “by show of hands”.

‘’Ifyongo mwaumfwile ku Lusaka, amapepala yale mibepa ubufi. Pantu ta batu bweseshe ifi puna. Bushe icilonganino chatushilile bashikulu, General Conference yesu bushye ku imya amaboko?” Kasolo said while Sampa was heckling and shouting “kwati mashilu”.

Kasolo also accused the media of peddling lies and said they will never give up on their cause.

Kasolo also lamented that the reconciliation that was brokered by the Church was meaningless since his position of Deputy Secretary General and that of former Secretary General Bridget Attanga were not restored.

He claimed that when he founded the PF with his “grandfather”,
‘’Ubu chenjenshi bwa nkonko, Pungwa tasakamana”

In an 18minute and 42seconds public recording made available, Miles Sampa has accused the Edgar Lungu camp of punishing his supporters in the party

He said that the PF did not belong to anyone.

“ twa iminine ten (10). Ilyo twabwele ku Lusaka, natile ati ukuchila icipani cifwe, natu balekele’’.

He said the reconciliation was false because it was just a cosmetic show for television and the rest of the media while the party structures allegedly remained divided.

He said as far as he was concerned that before negotiations could conclude, a press conference was held prematurely.

He feared that his supporters were being sidelined and punished for supporting him. He said his supporters in Mazabuka, Mongu and Chipata were being punished.

He said his officials in Chipata were given suspension letters.

“Ine icilenkalipa cha kweba ati abanensu na bakwatako ubuchenjeshi”.

He alleged that officials that supported were being replaced by people from the so called parallel structures.

He said he has been consulting the Church, Bishops and other stakeholders and felt that time had come to consult traditional authorities and make his own decision.

He said whatever position he takes whether it was reconciliation or formation of his own political party, he will state on his own.

He insisted that he was his own spokesperson and did not need any other person to speak for him.

And supporters told Sampa that they will “follow” whatever position he will take.

Sampa said he will hold a press conference soon and state his position.

The opposition MMD President Nevers Mumba has advised his fellow politicians not to use the recognition of Henry Kanyanta Sosala as paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking people as a tool for their campaigns.

Addressing a rally in Kasama District in Northern Province this afternoon, Dr. Mumba says it is unfortunate that most of the political parties are using the recognition of Mr. Sosala as a way of getting into State House.

Dr. Mumba states that there is need for politicians to engage in meaningful campaigns and not use issues that they cannot fulfill.
And Dr. Mumba has urged the people of Zambia not to vote for the PF for failing to pay farmers up to this time.

He wonders how most farmers will buy their farming inputs when government has delayed to pay them.

He has assured them that he will fight for them until they are paid all their dues so that they adequately prepare for this farming season.
