Ministers Sampa, Luo caught on camera browsing Zambian Watchdog during meeting

Filed under: More News |

The PF government is relentlessly fighting online media but its top members are key followers of major websites reporting on Zambian politics.

On Tuesday, finance deputy minister Miles Sampa – President Sata’s nephew – and  minister in charge of chiefs Nkandu Luo, were caught on camera during a Lusaka council meeting keenly browsing the Zambian Watchdog as deliberations were underway.

This was on Monday during a full council meeting which was also attended by Vice-President Guy Scott who is Lusaka Central MP, Mandevu MP Jean Kapata, Matero MP Miles Sampa, Kabwata MP Given Lubinda and Chawama MP Edgar Lungu.
Thirty councillors out of the 33 were present at the meeting which started at 14:55 hours and closed after 18:00 hours.

The latest attack on the PF government on online publications is coming from Clement Andeleki – the Registrar of Societies in Zambia.

Andeleki has given the Zambian Watchdog a 48-hour ultimatum to provide a physical address and pay up K18 billion or face de-registration.

President Michael Sata, Wynter Kabimba (justice), Goeffrey Bwalya Mwamba (defence), Given Lubinda (foreign) and information permanet secretary Amos Malupenga have all among top PF officials wanting to see the Zambian Watchdog disappear.

  1. In case you are under rating the substance and existance of the watchdog. Some of us we start with the watchdog then proceed to the office read a borrowed post newspaper just to check chocklet’s catoon. I may buy the daily mail for adverts. But I don’t forget to re-check the watchdog just incase of any breaking news. Even before going to bed, I check the breaking news. Keep it up ZWD.

  2. Interesting… If they could read like that in public, what do they do in private at the office?

    Luo, its a good thing you got that job. You started looking really clapped and knackered. You really needed it, mwe!

    Now keep your head down, get paid, get business and wait another 4 years before you lose your job along with all your minister friends.

    This time, I will not shut up until you all account for every loose deal and kwacha. If you pocketed anything you and your cohorts will spend time as GRZ trophy!

  3. Clearly, some of you have never attended some types of meetings. Its quite possible to catch up whilst in a meeting, if you are sharp, like Miles.

  6. Miles Sampa thinks he is cool. Ipads should be used for productivity not browsing porn on the job.

  7. That’s the way to go Miles. I respect a man who takes his time to know what the critics are saying. And I will defend the rights of those critics to continue saying what they’re saying.

  9. Andeleki has no respect for the majority of us who follow this site. WD please do an article specifically targeted at him the way you did with GBM, Masebo, Dr Kaseba and all those who have no respect for freedom of speech.

    • not reading in an important meeting where development issues are being discussed

      • My friend, you make a critical error in your assumptions. You assumed the these two give a fick about development.

        socrates - October 4, 2012

    • So why deprive them of that facility by closing it down or de-registering it?

  15. Miles Sampa is a good man although he has paid a disgrantled man CALLED HAMIYANZE to condem HH BUT THAT MAN WILL BE MANHANDLED VERY SOON.Miles is doing that because he is a nephew to Sata but come 2016 we will adopt him under UPND for matero constituency.VIVA HH 2016

    • Miles Sampa and Hamiyanze. Lets hope Miles Sampa’s relationship with Hamiyanze is not like that of a horse and a rider. Miles riding and Hamiyanze a horse. Hamiyanze will soon marry a bemba because that is Miles sampa’s main agenda. Am told the man said a poem in Parliament entitled “I have a dream” I have dream that one day all single men will go to Muchinga , Luapula and Kasama to marry bemba women and all single women in Zambia will only accept bemba men. That is Miles’ poem.

  22. Why Andeleki? Is ZWD a society association or club that they should register with the registrar of societies? Mu Zambia twalilaba basic social studies which taught us seperation of powers. Thats why the president can be come the overseer of RDa.

  23. Given the murkiness of who is on the take for the cartels and who is not, it’s a wonder that they even made a stab at interrogating anyone. It was postulated right after the event took place it was federal officers on the take.
