Zambia Police in Riot gear on Airport Road during the laying of the foundation stone by PResident Sata at the Kenneth Kaunda International airport

Over 50 armed policemen were deployed in Kasama this morning in what residents believe was an attempt to block Former Defence Minister, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba from featuring on Radio Mano at 10am.GBM was scheduled to feature on the live program to explain development projects in the constituency.

The Former Defence Minister said he is in his constituency on a retreat reflecting on his future and does not wish to generate any contention .

Mwamba who is Patriotic Front (PF) Kasama Central Member of Parliament said that he had taken time off to reflect on his past and the future.

“I am here with my family. I want to go and check on my land where I want to start farming. I am with my wife, grandchildren and my other relatives. We are having fun, I like infinkubala, I am reflecting on my past and future,” said Mwamba.

He wondered why people wanted to make his resignation an issue when he did it on moral grounds.

GBM said that the heavy presence of armed Police officers in Kasama was creating tension among the people and has since asked government to allow him enjoy his peace after leaving government.

I resigned on my own because I had to defend my family,there is no need to panic

He said that the heavy presence of police in Kasama had created an impression that there was confusion and tension when there was nothing to panic about.Mr Mwamba was speaking ahead of the arrival of two ministers Miles Sampa and Jean Kapata dispatched to meet with local party officials.

Mwamba said that there was no reason why government should send armed police officers in riot gear as if there was tension or anarchy in Kasama adding that he was enjoying his peace with his family.

“The people are worried about the heavy presence of police in Kasama and they fear it could be because of my presence but I think there is no need to panic. I am getting fillers that some people think I would incite people to violence but for what benefit would I be doing that? I cannot do that and I am above such politics. I resigned on my own because I had to defend my family,” said Mwamba.

The Kasama parliamentarian said that there was no need for the authorities to get agitated by his resignation from government advising that government should be happy that he had decided to resign because his family was special than political appointments.

He said that the action he took was out of principle adding that mid this year President Michael Sata sent him to Northern Province to discuss the impasse between Bashilubemba and government over the enthronement of Paramount Chief Chitimukulu and that the Head of State was aware of what was discussed. Mwamba said that the continued silence and disparaging remarks against the Chitimukulu by government had annoyed the people of Kasama and Northern Province as a whole hence his decision to quit from government.

“They have told me that they are not happy with the decision by government to degazette Chief Mwamba as the Chitimukulu. This matter has been discussed at length with the President. But you see people here are asking me as their MP what is happening. There is no answer. I cannot tell them anything because the President has said nothing over the issues and my fear is that when I come back in 2016 to ask for votes they will reject me because it would have meant that I have failed them,” said Mwamba.

Meanwhile a Kasama resident said this is a sad day for Zambia.

‘GBM is MP for Kasama Central and today, he can be prevented from speaking to the electorates. Parliament has a duty to ensure good laws are made for Zambia.People in Kasama are very annoyed over this development. Sata does not know that he is decampaigning himself by appearing this desparate,’the resident said

      You are mildly making this gbm popular with this desperate coverage .

      What a joke of a country. Anyone aroused by this man’s coverage is delusional so is tge coverage.

      A morally poor country has been dragged in far deeper mad than was necessary
      It doesn’t take my ACCA, CIMA MSc Bsc MBA to analyse this as well

      Give it up

      If GBM makes Sata,have sleepless nights to the extent of risking another heart attack, then he is not useless like you think. Sata is seriously worried that the Northern and Luapula votes will no be divided massively.
      What ever he does from now on will simply strengthen UPND ‘s position as the only credible party to restore all the dignity ,freedom and peace Zambia is losing each second that passes.
      It also fair to note the irony with which GBM used the Chitimukulu issue to champion his political agenda when he demonised HH for attempting to pay homage to Chitimukulu and supported the enthronement of Mwamba not long ago. All this proves how a sincere man HH is in matters pertaining to governance.

      Bashilubemba should vote UPND to get rid of Sata and his madness.

    • Folks ,

      Now is the time to start thinking ahead. Lets forget the tribal stupidity peddled by Mmembe and his clique via his past paper and begin to rally behind UPND.

      UPND has 6 provinces under its belt right now and more people in other provinces are fast realising that and joining the cause to de-campaign this st.up.i.d government of Sata and his madmen. If Bashilubemba can also join in, then come 2016 Zambia will easily manage to get rid of PF’s mad government and restore economic prosperity, peace, low cost of living, rule of law, fair justice, high standard of education,high standard of medical care , sound agricultural policies and above all freedom.
      GBM should use his business acumen to find a way to punish these mad PF stooges.
      HH and UPND are the only way forward for…

Do people really think that once voted in, HH would be insane enough to prove people right by appointing tongas all over the place? He is more astute than that. Sata is dull and uneducated that is why practising rampant nepotism and tribalism is no problem for him.

  2. Waiting for statement from Dishonourable Mwansa Kapeya, Minister of Misinformation and Lies as to why the Police, a law enforcement agency, should deploy armed police to protect a radio station. Where they tipped off that armed robber were planning a robbery? Why should a public service be engaged in stopping an MP from entering a radio station. Is there a crime or any public disorder likely to happen if GB went ahead?

    • I concur.I am totally opposed to show of force at the slightest provocation or suspicion thereof.Government has overreacted to involve police on a purely party squabble.You are making a hero of an individual you could have easily dealt with politically or diplomatically.What’s more with using armed police at every turn, is the danger that people may get used to seeing armed men and may one day dare the men in uniform with disastrous repercussions.Use police sparingly for state law and order only,like at the palace and Linyungandambo infestations.

      Have contracted Sata’s confusion disease? The writing is on the wall. See how you have moved from supporting Sata to divulging information that some of us have known for years, that Sata is pure Tanzanian period. Both his parents and uncles and Aunties hail from TZ. His parents came to Zambia as economic migrants in the 40s when sata just a young man.
      To put the record straight, having a Tonga father or coming from TZ is not an issue at all. What is an issue is how he is threatening and disrespecting all our traditional institutions and they way he busy stealing and damaging the peace and tranquility that once existed in our lovely Zambia.Under Sata there is no more fair justice,no rule of law,no freedom,but only more poverty ,starvation, intimidation, and high cost of…

  7. These are situations where soldiers decide they are tired of all this nonsense and decide that maybe they would like to stay in State House for a bit as well while they promise fresh elections and since GBM was their boss, they would decide that maybe he would be the best to stand while Sata and ka Kaseba are chilling mu prison. And how come ever smiley Kaseba cannot appeal to her i.diot of a husband to reinstate ama nurses? does it mean she cannot see how people are suffering coz of no experienced nurses?

  9. Personally I am very happy with the happenings currently going on in Bembaland especially what is GBM is experiencing. This is the same man who foolishly sent ZAF fighter jets to terrorise and intimidate Lozis in Barotseland and how ironic of him to cry foul about the deployment of armed police to his doorsteps. Now he is about to reap the whirlwind!
    The same applies to bemba and PF cadres on this blog who rejoiced and insulted defenceless lozis who were being rounded up indiscriminately, tortured, locked up and had trumped-up charges of treason slapped on them.
    This GBM/ Sata stand-off will be vicious and protracted because it is bemba against bemba. In the meantime the lozis are on respite while watching the scenario from the terraces. GBM, we warned you to leave lozis alone.

      Right on the nails’ head.
      This is the same GBM as defense minister sent his troops to Barotseland saying….”Lozis will be sorted out severely” as I recall GBM’s echoing threats of violence and intimidation against the people of Barotseland.
      Now today it’s HIM, GBM yapping about peace?
      Shocking hypocrisy indeed. GBM sent military hardware to Barotseland, why is he crying?
      GBM before you remove a needle in your neighbors eye, remember to first and foremost, pluck out the log in your own eye.
      Barotseland is nothing but Litunga.

    IF THE RULES OF THE EMPLOYMENT OR CLUB LIKE UPND, PF, NAREP ETC STIPULATE THAT A MEMBER OR EMPLOYEE SHOULD SEEK CLEARANCE FROM HIS EMPLOYERS TO APPEAR FOR RADIO OR TV INTERVIEWS, THEN I DON’T SEE WHY ANYONE ELSE SHOULD NOT COMPLY.

    WHAT LT IS NOT SHARING WITH THE YOUNG UNEMPLOYED BLOGGERS ON THIS SITE IS WHETHER ANYONE TRIED TO CONTRAVENE CLUB RULES….

Its only that we dealing with cheap chaps like you and Sata, who cant even appreciate that GBM bought Sata and his wife ISUZU double cabs. THIS COUPLE was very poor 2 years ago but today, they can afford to throw GBM away. Power is sweet and it corrupts absolutely. As you go up, dont forget the people who put the staircase for you, lest they decide to remove the same. no soft landing.

      I totally agree with you.
      This just proves that the tribal nonsense Mmembe tries to use against UPND is all rubbish. Tribal politics has only existed since PF came to power and the only party that practises tribalism is PF. Unfortunately its backfiring big time because Zambians are above tribal politics in this era except Mmembe and his PF minions of course. So if tribal politics works then why is PF ripping it self apart through Bemba on Bemba fights.
      All I care about right now is the pace with which GBM will destroy PF in Northen and Luapula provinces. GBM please accelerate the process, people are tired of PF’s monkey business.
      For now only UPND and HH will bring back the Zambia we are losing under these PF f.o.o.l.s.

  18. Imagine the tax dollars government is paying to deploy 50+ cops to Kasama for something that basically started off as a family dispute. This manpower could have been better used to reduce crime and deter drink driving on our roads during this festive season. If these selfsame leaders like Sata and his greedy deadwood cabinet are unable to sort issues in their own backyard, in all honestly how on a earth can they even contemplate tackling more complex issues in Western Province.

    We are paying a heavy price for electing this man….we can do better than this.

Bakateka, ba Sata, because he has certain presidential powers, he has to abuse those powers. Why don’t people talk about Sata’s abuse of power, his involvement in affairs that doesn’t concern him?

    This is what happens when you give the hallowed national responsibility of leading the country to an illiterate and nja tuwe (dog).

    Does this Sata-n have advisors? Don’t you know you advisors that the free flow of information, ideas and opinions are human rights and essential to the functioning of our democratic order?

    Every Zambian has the right to hold views without restriction. Who is Sata-n to stop people from expressing themselves?

    • An inability to think outside the box is what beguiles the Northerners. Uppermost in their minds is regional superiority as opposed to national superiority. As such, they have been prone to fall for charismatic i.d.i.o.t.s as their flag carriers. Mr. Frederick Chiluba was a total disgrace and so is the incumbent.

      It is unthinkable that Northerners can vote for one outside of their domain, because in their view, that would be tantamount to forsaking their region. And because they vote as a block, their vote in a general election is significant. Mr. Mwanawasa did win in 2001, not because he won, but only because Mr. Chiluba had to have him as his successor and so rigged the election in his favour. And may not the same be said or Mr. Banda’s win in 2008?

    • Different countries have different criteria for choosing their leaders. In Zambia, a charter box is a crowd-puller and usually carries the day. It’s usually the colour, and not the depth and breadth of what comes out of one’s mouth that we go for. The more comical a politician is, the more likely he will be voted as president. Few, if any, know that there is something called “brain” that is usually critical to one’s success as a leader.

      Unfortunately, it is usually the empty calabashes that make the most noise and thus attract our attention. We have not yet, as a nation, demonstrated the capacity to discern the wisdom of an aspiring candidate. It’s usually one’s flair and not his fortitude that steals the show and for which we fly!

    Comrade this is the problem with some us who have never worked and followed some code of conduct.

    A meeting with your constituents differs from meeting the entire province or speaking on a provincial FM without clearance. Its indiscipline.
    It will be like a branch chairman calling for the resignation of a constituency treasurer!

  37. GBM must not be underestimated. Take the landslide that the PF had in the Northern Province and give it to the MMD and RB would still be president!

  38. If Scott, Kawimbe and Masebo are graduates of Sata political academy, Sata is graduate of Kaunda academy. Sata is the only political leader whom KK has publicly praised for doing a good job. Sata may do to GBM what KK did to Kapwepwe.

  39. I am anxiously waiting for learned, well researched, unbiased and civilized comment by Hon. Kabimba (SC) as it is expected of the Minister of Justice in a democratic inclusive society who in so far, has been conspicuous by his silence.
    On the other hand, let me be ready for usual arrogant and patronizing justifications of loose interpretations of fundamental rights, Constitutional provisions and meaning of so much wanted and expected Democracy.

  41. Mushota, my dear don’t be short, sighted, for someone with the accolades you claim to have it makes sad reading that you can sink so low, Bill gates has no papers like you, but you know Him and use his products to carry out your work, GBM can employ you and feed your entire family with surplus to share. In the end your ACCA, CIMA BSc and MBA mean nothing to people like him, because without them he did 100times more than you could do ever in your life. @Ndobo, what has resigning got to do with treason??? What grade are you??? You need to go back to high school, or you need a proper advisor…. @Zambiano fat albert deserves the coverage my man, if He didn’t you wouldn’t be hearing about him and the police would waste all there tu fuel just for this man. It shows just how well deseving…

    Bill gates is an innovator. Bill uses his brains to make money.
    Whereas GBM uses patronage and politics to make money.
    Please read about the reasons he gave why he chose to go into politics : to fight personal battles against MMD and to win contracts.
    According to GBM, MMD were interfering with his business.
