BREAKAWAY PF FORMED

173

A NEW breakaway political party from the ruling Patriotic Front (PF), to be called the Democratic Front Party (DFP), has been formed and is likely to be launched this week.

The party has been formed by some of the PF members of the central committee who contested the ruling party’s presidency at its last emergency national congress following the death of President Michael Sata in October last year.
Forms and other stationery for the new party have been distributed in Northern Province where alternative structures have been established, according to PF Kasama district youth secretary Aaron Zimba and the Daily Nation is in possession of the same documents.
The disgruntled PF members of central committee have now regrouped with the hope of contesting this year’s Presidential and general elections to undermine and weaken the PF to make it impossible for the ruling party to garner the required 50 per cent plus 1 vote.
The group hopes to play “king maker” with an opposition party and therefore gain power through a political alliance.
The breakaway political party is said to be bankrolled by some external financiers who are channeling their money through a named media house in the country following the failure by the Wynter Kabimba-led Rainbow Party to gain national support.
But PF deputy spokesperson Frank Bwalya said the PF had heard rumours that some known PF members were planning to form a political party but stated that such a political party would have no effect on the PF because it would be like a branch cut off from the main tree.
He said the ruling party had heard testimonies by people allegedly being recruited by the leadership of the breakaway party that the structures had been formed in selected regions of the country.
He said the group of PF members planning to form their own political party was doing so after having vowed that they had reconciled with the PF and President Lungu.
He said the new political party was going to be formed at the ‘‘backdrop of a chain of lies’’ because the known leaders of the party had declared their loyalty to the Head of State.
“We are happy as the PF, the party led by a reasonable and accommodating leader in the name of President Lungu, did not fall into the trap of expelling members who had been looking forward to be forced out of the party.
‘‘It had become very clear some memebrs of the central committee were looking for an excuse to be expelled so that he could blame President Lungu for their exit. But President Lungu had been smart and knew that such members were looking for someone to blame for leaving the PF and creating an impression that the Head of State was purging the relatives of late President Sata and the Bembas from the ruling party,” Fr Bwalya said.
Meanwhile, Mr. Zimba told the Daily Nation from Kasama yesterday that the breakaway political party had already formed structures in Northern Province.
He said the party in the province was born under the disguise of a football tournament dubbed the Michael Chilufya Sata Memorial Tournament which took place in Kasama between November last year and January this year.
“It is nothing new to us because we know that there are some old members of the PF who have been drafted into the provincial structure in order to weaken us. These are the same people who have been going round the province, and Kasama in particular, collecting NRCs, voters’ card numbers and phone numbers for their recruits,” Mr Zimba said.

  1. Do not underrate Miles Sampa the ground hs been set for all Zambians to realise that it is possible to make a decision out of poverty and riches.pf is gone in the same manner MMD went.lolo.

  2. …MILES BWALYA SAMPA HAS GROWN BIG HEAD AFTER BEING A MENTAL PATIENT FOR MATERO CONSTITUENCY,AND SERVING AS A DEPUTY MINISTER,AND HE THINKS HE CAN BE PRESIDENT FOR MOTHER ZAMBIA. HE IS JUST TOO OVER AMBITIOUS,AND POWER HUNGRY. BU KATEKA BWA CHALO TABWISA NGA MENO YA MUKANWA,UFWILE WACULAKO NGA CULA PANONO. AND THE NAME OF THE PARTY SOUNDS LIKE ONE THOSE ORGANISATIONS THAT GIVE FERTILISERS TO FARMERS ON CREDIT…

  3. BA sampa ninshi muna dyamo kuli hh?why do u wnt to confuse us mu pf? at first u dd it but we recieved u as mwana wa pakomo nd u re doing it again pa last minute?God wil punish u nd u won’t go anywhere but pf wil remain victorious. ask winter nd munkombwe musela kwakaba .viva pf. we shall stand nd win without u. fo those who wnt to follow him u cn go before its too late we wnt to organize ourselves okey. together we stand God help Edgar c LUNGU.

  4. these are just levels of how disorganised we r as zambia,,how many parties will we ever have????y cant we only have MMD,UPND N PF..unlike every one including nawakwi,mulyokela etc think can b president wen they will never b,and I wonder were these pipo get the FAKE courage from.

  5. DFP ba sampa u are goin no were u can ask yo friend winter kabimba how things are now in his nashala neka part………………u hve resigned frm pf nd how are u goin to pay back de loan u got frm indo bank

  6. Time will tell, i have no problem with this, somehow i just lost confidence in our politicians.They just don’t have Zambia at heart.Its like each one for himself and who has a chance to get rich via politics and not working truly for Mother Zambia.If and only if, our politicians hard Zambia at heart, am sure we would have had 2 main political parties and 2 would still be enough in a democratic country so we claim.Because if we had 2 political parties people would mean business for real and not all of us wanting to be bosses.You can imagine a house with 10 fathers in it,all wanting to lead, what kind of a house would that be?Some have to be kids, a wife,workers and husband as the heard of the house,Zambia is one and only one person can be president at a time.

  7. Ideally, is to split the vote for pf & give advantage to the opposition & if that happens, a re-run is possible, when the re run is done, Democratic Front Party will back the opposition so that pf loses lamentably.Wapya munzi,pf in trouble. The same person you say is not a factor now as pf, you’ll now see how he becamz a factor at that time.Watch the pace of MS.He’s there to do the damage to pf.Ignore him now but you’ll remember him tomorrow.

    • He doesnt own anyone my brother,i hope you knew the size of Zambia well,classic example,Lubansenshi and Bangweulu,did GBM help you win in these areas brother Muchindu?infact in Bangweulu UPND came third,Zambia is too big,Wynter Kabimbi another example and was more known than Miles as pf SG,where is he today despite the publist from the post news paper?today miles has become your darling yet in 2012 he was the most hated in SP and upnd threatened to kill him when he was sent to be deputy minister there,am sure you remember this and remember Matero is not Zambia and neither does he own pipo of Matero,only God owns them,by the way how much has he done for Matero pipo?

    • Some of the allegations are worrying esp of SP wanting to kill MS.MS is a Kolomo Sec School in SP product!went to campus as a product of Sp. 2de pipo want to trivialize issues for political gain of which am sad & touched.Much as I understand that he doesn’t own pipo but…However,am gotten into another web of issues, let me sort out this one maybe I’ll come back to you soonest. I wanted us to debate more & further educate each other.I may learn something from you in a similar matter you could have learnt from my opinion of thought, thanx & may ref to our debate. Please, take care.

  8. Zambians surely, all of us think the favour of high leadership is bestowed on all of us by God, NO…God knows who, hence not all of us can be that especially by hook or crook. God hates people who ask for His favour with selfish interests, and there is a number of these political chaps; Winter Kabimba, Miles Sampa name it, it’s not possible guys we beg of you. All what you’re doing is to divide the country and take it backwards in terms of forging ahead with development. What is wrong with fusing into the already existing meaningful bigger parties if you mean well and care for this country, than starting from zero and just confusing the electorate??? Zambian politics, awe mwe, I get disgusted…

  9. Hungry for president with no plans,no vision, dirty minded. Now wet and see who gona make it to 50+1. It will lyk Zimbabwe mugabe alone coz any1 who has a business think of becoming a president. Jst open a company ad employee zed pipo not invo vapuba wat u re doing? Relish mind.

  10. As a party we are not afraid of this we have been in this before and we emerged winners! let them go ahead it is their democratic right but we will meet on the ground!

  11. Sampa u 2 young and childish 2 rule zambia kam 2016 u wil even lose yo sit in parliament……even if u pipo wer 2 join hands with HH, GBM,MASEMBO. Believe u me u cnt bit Hiz Exellence L

    • lol,,bali navo chitika bantu,,,, i never saw this actually,,, there is another party that was announced a few weeks ago,,,full of young vibrant leaders,,, then thez this! yaba! they will just split the votes

  12. Zambia wil not dvlop.The problem we hav z that we hav a lot of greedy & selfish indvidual hiden agendas planted among us. We dont want 2 work hand in gloves with others & this z th rzon y we hav so many parties. Dvsions & breakaways wont take us anywhere, let us learn 2 share & unite.

  13. its a pity to note that some we still have a lot of people who are power hungry. 50 plus one will see them thru. Instead of making our country a better place others are busy trying to satisfy their ego. PF NAFUTI
    NAFUTI.

  14. Guys don’t underestimate sampa, if this all thing is tribal then it wil be difficult for us zambian to choose cuz now its tribal jst saying…..

  15. Problem you do not want to join the existing parties simply because you all want utuma horse kuntanshi ya motorcade yenu. You all can’t be presidents mwe bantu and you better be careful with your resources bambi nibakandile.

  16. Am yet to read the constitution as to how many political parties and what criteria to contest presidency. Hope Muliokela and Sondashi wont emerge from their slumber and contest in August

  17. Sampa is just a threat to himself, because this maybe the end of his political career. He is too ambitious and speed thrills, but it kills as RTSA may put it. Instead of putting the votes together they have chosen to spread them encouraging unnecessary issues like reruns. Nevertheless wina azalila because they are abusing there democratic rights, which has become so funny. Everyone wants to be a President sad development for mother Zambia, this is even giving me more appetite to vote for ECL.

  18. Corrupted people with corrupted mind, Zambia will never develop unless we future leaders start ruling. They ‘re all power hungry, want to get rich not to develop the nation. Which country in developed countries or in Africa has as many political parties as Zambia. Foolish minds.

  19. Sampa is not yet mature in politics, PF is not jst a party bt government!! Kabimba was once a substance n a vocal guy h thot h can stand on his own, look at him now! There was Mulongoti in mmd look at him now. He wil wish to rejoin PF at som point, let him taste police cells first akalapila h is bin deceived by thoz spacois he loaned out

  20. If the authors of this article have the facts, why can’t they mention those individuals behind the formation of the party. For now I take this as a mere rumor.

  21. “..has been formed…” is it registered? the time frame for theme to show the nation what ‘they’ are offering is minimal. Do not be diverted. #DevelopmentNamumonaKabiliMutwishike

    • Continue hallucinating.you campaigned for 4 months and PF had only 3 weeks and you lost.and now you are thinking of uprooting someone who’s already at the helm.grow up politically you U/5’s!
