LUSAKA Mayor Miles Sampa will be dishing out neckties from his collection of over 120 – but only to Capital City residents who give satisfactory answers to his quiz.
Sampa announced on his Facebook page this morning that the number of neckties kept climbing during his time as a banker and member of parliament.
The neckties in the mayor’s closet now number 127.
“I will give out 125 neck ties and remain with 2. After all my current job is mostly in the field with boots (Jombo) and no tie,” Sampa announced.
“As a gesture of giving in 2020, I have decided to float them free (one per person) to whoever within Lusaka City will give the best answer to simple questions I may pose periodically,” the mayor wrote.
According to Sampa, the giveaway is also gesture to start the new year afresh.
The recipient of the first necktie will have to tell the mayor, in not more than 20 words, the best part of Lusaka City.
The candidate must be Lusaka-based and state the Constituency they are based.
