Patriotic Front (PF) youths in Lusaka have charged that it would be suicidal for the ruling party to expel former Defence Minister Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba because the Kasama Member of Parliament was not only a household name in the Zambian politics but had greatly contributed to the victory of President Michael Sata and the party.

The PF youths have vowed that the would fight against the expulsion of Mwamba because without him, the PF was still going to be in the opposition.

The PF youths have warned that the 2016 general elections would be easy for the ruling party without Mwamba and have appealed to President Sata to immediately reconcil with the former Defence Minister because he was an asset that could not easily be rebeled against.

PF Lusaka district youth vice chairman Benja Siwila said the people caling for the expulsion of Mwamba and Lusaka Province chairperson Maggie Mumba were oportunists who had not contributed anything to the party.

Siwila said Mwamba and Mumba were among the cream in the PF and that the ruling party could not afford to lose members that had made the party to be what it was today.

Siwila said the Kasama parliamentarian was an influential man in the politics of the country and that it would be a mistake for President Sata to frustrate him out of the ruling party.

He told the Daily Nation that President Sata and those who were calling for the expulsion of influential members like Mwamba and Mumba should know that the ruling party won the 2011 general elections because of the youth vote and that the same young men and women were angry that a group of people were trying to hijack the party.

Siwila said there were senior central committee members that had roundly been rejected by all organs of the party and that it was such leaders who were supposed to leave the party because they had managed to divide the ruling party all all levels.

“As youths in Lusaka and some other parts of the country, we are extremely saddened by the developments in our party. Ba GBM (Mwamba) has been a household name in the PF and everywhere else in the country and we cannot afford to to the elections in 2016 without this man.

What is annoying is that those who have caused so much damage to the party are the same people calling for the expulsion of influential leaders like Mwmba and Mumba. We are not going to allow this and in case they have started thinking we are down and out, the have it wrong because we are going to make sure that they leave our party,” Siwila said.

Siwila said the PF would have a bigger challenge in 2016 because of the wrangles that have rocked the ruling party stating that the leaders had stopped thinking about mobilising membership because they were preoccupied with schemes to purge their percieved enemies.

He said the youths had resolved to protect Mwamba because they knew how much he had done for the party.

Siwila said the people who built the PF were being frustrated and that those who were scheming to take over the ruling party should know that they woulf not find it easy to do so.

    For GBM, i would also give moral support because he is not an *****. The man has a big heart. He is not like winter Kabimba who has no respect for anyone except for Sata and Given Lubinda who is selfish.

    But I would not support GBM for presidency

    I supported PF and Loved the president but i no longer have that support it has been eroded by the party and many friends are now disapointed with the PF. I will support GBM especially if he joined UPND i think its the only party i can support for now despite being tribal i have been left with no option. This other parties are just jokers.

    What is there to vote for PF in 2016?
    Disgrace of violence, lack of leadership, isolationism of Zambia by regional and international community leaders, falsehood and deception of 90 days, no constitution, youth unemployment and no money in Zambians pockets?

    northern province PF provincial chairperson has postpond the demonstrations aimed at chasing away GBM from the province, the party and the constituency. A group of notorious cadres from luwingu, chilubi, mpulungu and kasama where sent back to their respective areas. GBM reisgned his ministrial position and cadres feel insulted. Many civil servants, teachers, agriculturist, doctors, engineers and drivers have resigned from government i have never seen such a thing. all these people above are employed in the name of the president. atini Ndobo? Cadres are just trying to continue tunishing the former good of the president Michael Chilufya Sata. if you rewind from 2009, 10 and 11 one would think is not michael Sata. he has be destroyed by post masters editors. sata was given the entire staff…

    The pangas are coming back. That is inevitable. This is the first time in my life that I will support violence because it will be PF against PF and I am so desperate for this idiotic party to vote itself out of power. Just watched Sata addressing the nation as usual in his bored and uninterested way. His new year message which did not touch, not even a bit, on the current crises with regards high cost of living and other contentious issues. it was just the usual nonsense of govt is going to do this and that and create over 300,000 jobs bla bla…. then i changed the channel to cartoon network which I found more informative than what this vomit of a president was blubbering about. I never knew what it felt like to hate a human being until Sata and crew came along.

    When your enemy’s house catches fire, you celebrate and dance. Hand him gasoline and paraffin and diesel and any flamable substance to throw on it. Watching PF self destruct is fun. GBM has resigned but remained in the party. He’ll make a real “pigs ear” and shambles of things before he leaves. More division and in fighting. Yipeeee!

    Watch the monkeys as they try to out do each other in debasing themselves. Hear them “spill each others beans”. The whole country will know who stole what. and when.
