Youths from the ruling PF in Kasama have appealed to nine contenders in the PF presidential race to withdraw their candidatures and rally behind Miles Sampa.
The PF youths said the move to support Mr Sampa, who is also Matero, is aimed at giving the party leadership mantle to youthful, vibrant and energetic leader.
This is contained in a statement signed by PF District youth officials and read their chairperson, Geoffrey Mbulo.
• But PF presidential aspirant, Geoffrey Mwamba has accused his fellow contender in the party race Miles Sampa of dishing out money amounting to K250, 000 to the provincial party officials to woo support from the region.
In a telephone interview with Mano News this afternoon, Mr Mwamba popularly known as GBM charged that party officials in the province have since shown bias towards Mr Sampa.
He further accused regional party officials of doctoring the list of delegates to this weekend’s convention.
