Lungu-NgulubeMatero PF Member of Parliament Miles Sampa has revealed that he has no intentions of forming a new political party following his resignation as Commerce Deputy Minister.

Social media reports emerged on Monday that Mr Sampa is teaming up with Guy Scott and Dr Christine Kaseba to form a new political party to be called United Patriotic Front.

Mr Sampa said he intends to focus on serving his constituents to the best of his ability, as well as strengthening party relations nationwide.

He also said that he is not in talks with any opposition leaders about his latest situation.

Writing on his Facebook page, Mr Sampa said any media statements to this effect should be disregarded, considered false and completely unfounded.

‘On October 29th I resigned from my position in government, which I believe is the right decision. With that said, I would like to make it abundantly clear as to what this means going forward and lay to rest any misconceptions,’ he said.

‘I am not forming a political party and neither am I in talks with any opposition leaders. Any media releases to this effect should be disregarded, considered false and completely unfounded.’

He stated, ‘I remain a committed member of the Patriotic Front (PF). It is my desire and intention to be able to join hands to strengthen the PF party with a specialised focus on the youths and grassroots.’

‘I am immensely grateful for the overwhelming messages of encouragement I continue to receive on a daily basis. I thank you for your support and look forward to continuing to serve the Patriotic Front and the country at large. My passion has and always will be service to the people.’
