Lusaka ~ Sun, 27 Sept 2020

Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa said State House minister Mr Freedom Sikazwe have resolved their misunderstanding that arose during the wedding ceremony of President Edgar Lungu’s daughter, Tasila, on Saturday.

Mr Sampa, who wrote a complaint note to Mr Sikazwe after allegedly being denied chance to sit at the same bench with him at church, says the matter is now water under the bridge.

His explanation is as below:

“Yes, he refused me and my partner to sit on a bench; he was with wife and Danny Pule (only) and asked if I was even an Invited guest. We had to go seat somewhere behind. 2 minutes later, the Minister of Health walked over to the same bench, he (Mr Sikazwe) was in front and he allowed them to seat on the same bench. So I walked out of church and went to the Priests office for a note pad and pen. I wrote that note and took to where he was seated. His act spoilt my mood in church and for those questioning why I looked sad (as per some Pic or meme circulating), that was the reason why. In his mind, I am at Cadre level and I and my partner don’t deserve to be at a venue he is at and more so seat on the same bench with him. I was at the Wedding because Patrick and Tasila sent us an invitation card, to which we are grateful. He however called me some time after church to apologise and so that’s water under the bridge from my end. Ba Sikazwe is generally a good person away from work duties and I used to seat next to him in Parliament around 2013.
I however get the feeling that he is amongst those, the few in top position who think painting me black is what will get them look as good performers to powers that be. They have nothing good to say about me, no matter how good I try to act for the party PF, the Government and indeed the President Dr Edgar Chagwa Lungu.”

    Sometimes it is good to let bygones be bygones. Mr Sampa You will not be able to explain everything that happens because there are two two sides to this story. Raising dust all the time is not a sign of maturity. Intelligent people work very hard to settle dust ordinary people work very hard to raise the dust. At your level Mr mayor you should know that very few people eat fame.

    Join Socialist Party Mr. Sampa. You will be given chance to stand as a councillor. By the way, did you remember your godfather Mahtani, chairman of crooked finance bank you worked for?

    Ba Sikazwe Is Even Free To Exercise The Devilish Freedom Of Esteeming A Colleague Of No Value, Sure!

    How develish and unmanned Christian who is able to excicise such unmanned behaviours inside God’s ‘place of worship. As some people are saying sikazwe is an elderly person, to me he isn’t an innocent person but a sick person who needs attention from medical personnel as well as being counselled. Please people judge well for your judgement to be recognized. Incredible that was a respectable wedding so to say. Amezing

    Lets analyse sampa’s letter how wrong was it? Or what was wrong for sikazwe instead of his actions to find out what made sampa be in that church. As the letter implies sampa beged to know why as it was in church and at a respectable occasion.
