Former Matero member of parliament Miles Sampa is lobbying to be nominated as vice-president after the position fell vacant following the expulsion of Richard Kazala. Kazala was expelled by the FAZ Council for gross misconduct alongside committee member Blackwell Siwale. FAZ president Andrew Kamanga and members of his executive are due to make the replacements. Sources close to Sampa have disclosed that the failed politician is trying to make a comeback to public life through FAZ. “Miles has been sending different people to Mr Kamanga to consider him for the position of vice-president. He really wants the position,” the source said. “There is no indication he will get it but he is hopeful.” Miles was first co-opted in the FAZ Executive Committee after vigorous lobbying when four ExCo members resigned between 2009 and 20011. The former UPND campaigner who attempted to make a PF comeback but was rejected has recently been trying his luck to come back into active public life.

Opposition UPP leader Saviour Chishimba has gone into hiding claiming state operatives were after his life for exposing corrupt activities of high ranking officials. Chishimba says his laptops and other document have since been stolen after unknown people broke into his house. BELOW IS CHISHIMBA’S STATEMENT STATE OPERATIVES UNLEASHED ON ME: PRAY AND FAST FOR ME Fellow comrades in the fight for justice and members of the international community; I have had to go into hiding after escaping a dragnet of armed men in suits. I had received information earlier, but I ignored it. I urge you all to intensify prayer and fasting for me. God will surely strike all who seek the blood of the innocent. It is not a crime to demand for transparency and accountability from our leaders. One sure thing is that I shall not die, but live to declare the works of the LORD in Zambia and in as many nations as the LORD God of Heaven has given me. I am made for signs and wonders from the LORD! The people of Zambia are suffering because of corruption and God demands justice for all. Why can’t state resources be deployed to serve the people instead of pursuing an innocent citizen? Demanding K100 billion (US$10 billion) from a political party? We have stated before that Zambia belongs to all Zambians and we must all live securely together in dignity, unity and peace. If it is the evidence you want to destroy, make no mistake, it is secure in a place you cannot enter. We were not born yesterday to keep critical documents in our houses or offices. The two laptops and a few documents that you stole, after an illegal entry into my house, are the very last ever! I am now wiser and smarter. God bless our nation! Saviour Chishimba UPP PRESIDENT The post Saviour Chishimba Goes In Hiding; Says State Operatives After His Life appeared first on Zambia Reports.
