Before we accuse UPND of sponsoring Miles Sampa to destabilize the Patriotic Front, let us look at this matter without political lenses.

Edgar Lungu loses elections, and he officially resigns from politics and from his position as President of the Patriotic Front. His letter to the cabinet confirms this. This decision is also confirmed by the Patriotic Front as a party after they advertised the position of Presidency of the party and those interested were asked to pay K200,000.

Miles Sampa just like others expressed interest to fill up the vacancy in the office of the Party Presidency. Edgar Lungu was very much aware of what was happening, he allowed this process to go on.

At this point mingalato started. The convention to elect the new President could not take place. It was excuse after excuse. Edgar Lungu started playing games with the candidates because he had plans to return back into politics. ECL started playing mingalato because he wanted to come back as President of the Party despite having resigned.

As part of mingalato, Lungu appointed Raphael Nakachinda as secretary general of the party. Despite this move being illegal. Throughout this process, Edgar Lungu and his mingalato did not care about democracy.

Fed up with Lungu’s Mingalato Miles Sampa called for an ‘extraordinary general conference’ where he was elected President. In short Miles, also started playing mingalato. Where is UPND or President Hakainde Hichilema in all this?

Edgar Lungu was caught pants down at his mingalato by Miles Sampa. In 2014 ECL played the same mingalato and got away with it but this time Sampa was miles ahead in thinking.

PF claims democracy is under threat under the New Dawn. What was democratic about getting K200,000 from candidates and later imposing Lungu as President? Was it democratic to deny members of PF a convention for two years?

This confusion has been brought because of Edgar Lungu’s greedy and selfish motives and no one else. It is Edgar Lungu who has been playing mingalato all the time and he should never play the victim. Bill 10 was mingalato, Hatembos case was mingalato, treason case was mingalato but HH was equal to task and God saved him.

If you kill by a sword, you will die by a sword.

  1. Very accurate recollection of events but the truth does not matter anymore. Let’s wait and see if it will matter in court.

    • Sob boss, the PF idiot called Indigo Tryol has no clue about these bizairre PF political brouhaha. The together with Sishuwa are aggrieved for being left out of government appointmen. The PF fools contain too much poison against HH in their bodies.

  2. This guy and his cohorts don’t care about Zambia. They have no remorse for the economic mess they left behind. Nor for gassing their own citizens. For them politics is a casino. A ticket to plunder.

  3. What you have said is correct.
    ECL cannot absorb 2021 defeat.
    Very few leaders accept.
    He wants to show that he is still a force
    But I doubt it.
    Let’s wait and see.

  4. Lol….shallow thinking. And you think ECL swindled the 2million from his MCC’s?. C’mon man that 2million was a shopping budget for his daughter. That’s nothing. It’s their party’s law which compelled him to come back after what the government did with miles Sampa. There was no way around it.
    This country is going to hell with It’s economy. Criminals have been given police holiday with no police checkpoint from Chililabombwe to Kapiri. Criminals will be free to move their things.

  5. PF is the true representation of hypocrisy, lies and lawlessness.

    They have a twisted sense of morality. Only what they say is right and democracy means giving them free reign to do whatever they want while they deny others the same kind of treatment.

    PF was a disaster for our country. It will take two generations of consistent application of law and order for us to recover morally, politically, spiritually and economically. They destroyed our country in every area of human endeavour.
