Miles Sampa’s loose alliance

I could not help but laugh my lungs out over the formation of an alliance between National Restoration Party (NAREP), 4th Revolution Party and Democratic Front (DF) whose beleaguered leader Miles Sampa is going to be its presidential candidate for the August 11 battle of battles.

I laughed because all of them are just like birds that have been flown out from a prison box.

Secondly and probably more importantly, this alliance, to me, smells of something I won’t mention here. But it really stinks.

Ok let’s start. The leader of NAREP is Mr Elias Chipimo Jnr (north) 4th Revolution Party, Eric Chanda (north) and controversial Democratic Front –DF Miles Sampa (north). Was this by sheer chance or calculated move to shut out other regions from this remarkable alliance?

Is it not possible that this alliance was formed for the sole purpose of killing the Bemba votes for President Lungu?

There have been sleazy accusations against UPND being a tribal and regional political party, but how does one explain the above alliance?

And the first thing its leader Miles Sampa says is that he is in it to fight hunger ad calls that a revolution! But I somehow totally agree with Mr Chipimo on his cry for Zambia to build a strong future without injury and loss of life. For now all I can say is that this alliance has a lot of donkeywork to do if it will have any sway on the political scene of this great country. And I wish them the best of luck.

GBM, Sampa please stop it

It does not make any sense at all. First it was GBM who wanted to be in parliament on PF (matter is still court) while he was UPND vice president and now Miles Sampa is in the same boat.

The question really is; do these people on political move make up their minds? Or are simply floating pockets who just want to drift on because they are not sure of tomorrow?

Ba Sampa you resigned from PF which took you to parliament so why should you want to sit in the House one PF ticket which you ditched and you hope to walk two feet taller?

I don’t know what the trouble is with my Northern Province tribal cousins. They make one good step forward, and make two backwards. That is being a coward.

If they are real men, they are supposed to get on with their lives as planned. It is not possible to belong to two parties at one time for the sake of the cake in the House.

I strongly feel that there should a clear law to put such undecided characters in a tin box once they make such a move. It will save time and tax payers money.

If you are UNIP please remain so and if you decided to abandon UNIP to join Mr Muliokela, please do so without looking back at UNIP. Then, and only then will earn respect from members of public.

I bet with this exhibition of indecision, not many people will take them seriously while their political aspirations become doubtful. Only time will tell.

Institutionalising inefficiency and corruption

PACRA issues a company registration certificate within two days of application and this is after they have done all the verifications and calculations.

But ZPPA and CEEC issue their certificates within 10 to 15 days. Why??? They have no verifications or calculations to make.

All they do is check whether the checklist is fulfilled. Do they really need two weeks for that? Just to check a list.

At CEEC, an officer proudly told me to check after 10 to 15 days while at ZPPA I was told to check after ten days, but that  if I wanted it fast we could talk.

What does that mean? Pay something to some individual to quicken the machine.

This is the more reason why we should have charters of service in all public institutions.

How can somebody take two weeks to check a list of five items?
