Sampa is free to resign, he is not the first-Kambwili


Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says the resignation

of Commerce Deputy Minister Miles Sampa from government is within

his democratic rights.

Mr Kambwili says Mr Sampa, who is also PF Matero Member of Parliament, is free to resign from government because Zambia is a

democratic country.

He says that despite Mr Sampa having resigned from government, he is still PF Matero Member of Parliament and a member of the ruling party.

Mr Kambwili says Mr Sampa is not the first Deputy Minister to resign from

government since the PF assumed office in 2011.

He cited then Defence Deputy Minister Davies Mwila who resigned in

2013 but continued as Chipili Member of Parliament.
