Police this afternoon, warned and cautioned Kasama Central MP Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba for eight counts for offences which he is alleged to have committed between 1st April and 30th November, 2012.

Police Spokesperson Charity Munganga Chanda said whilst acting as Republican President, Mr Mwamba is alleged to have committed the offence of Disobedience of Statutory Duty C/Sec 126 Cap 87 of the Laws of Zambia.

He is also alleged to have Abused his Authority of Office C/Sec 21 (1) (a) and (b) of the Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012 by directing and influencing the award of a contract for supply and delivery of 9, 10 and 12 meter wooden poles to Zesco Limited on a one year running contract to Arizona Marketing and Distributors in which Company he was a Director/Partner.

As Director/Partner of Arizona Marketing and Distributors he is alleged to have committed three counts of uttering a false document C/Sec 352 of Cap 87 of the laws of Zambia involving Manufacturers Authorization, Company profile and Pole Specifications to the Zambia Public Procurement Authority and ZESCO purporting them to have been issued by Board Timber Limited of Zimbabwe when in fact not.

Further Mr Mwamba, acting in his capacity as the then Director/Partner of Arizona Marketing and Distributors has also been warned and cautioned for two counts of making a false document C/Sec 344 of Cap 87 of the Laws of Zambia namely a company profile for Boarder Timbers and Poles specifications purporting that they were issued from Border Timbers Limited when in fact not.

In the last count, he is alleged to have forged two manufacturers authorization documents C/Sec 342 of Cap 87 of the laws of Zambia purporting that they issued by Border Timbers Limited when in fact not.
Ms Chanda said investigations into the matter continue and Mr Bwalya’s wife Chama and Daughter Sibongile will appear for more questioning tomorrow at 10 Hours.

But Mr Mwamba says his lawyers have asked for more time to study the offences and will issue a statement soon.
He told Reporters outside Woodlands Police Station that despite what is happening to him, he will remain a loyal member of the PF because he still loves the party.
Mr Mwamba said, as one of the founder members of the PF, he will remain faithful and loyal to the PF leadership.

Also present at the police station were MMD acting national secretary Kapembwa Simbao, MMD Kasempa MP Kabinga Pande, National Revolution Party president Cosmo Mumba, Alliance for Better Zambia (ABZ) president Frank Bwalya and political activist Dante Saunders.
Police cordoned off the police station keeping Mr Mwamba’s placard and red card brandishing supporters at bay.

  1. GBM, don’t resign let them instead induce a bye-election on the electorates. I will tell you why its should be so.

    • PF is a reckless “TAYGO- a circus club of Tweaks As You Go. Unpatriotically, PF thrives on inefficient improvisations devoid of national or strategic thought process. Well, they don’t have the grey matter in their heads not mentioning a Gameplan for our country or indeed a proper model for the common good of the 13 million+ Zambians.

      With PF, its Tweaks As You Go all the way to hell as Man of God TB Joshua’s prophesy is being vindicated. Everything in this circus club is done without overtaking major analysis.

      What a calamity to the nation we are faced with!!

    • Why so much presence, how can the man run away?

      It is the slim ones, who are difficult and lure most of us women, because
      they are talented everywhere.

      This is comical in every sense of the word

      Thanks

    • GBM. We are with you. Just to put you in perspective here:

      1). Bashi Lubemba will declare Sata prohibited in there Chiefdom, and that includes Muchinga and Luapula Provinces. Remember, we are very loyal to our Chiefs and will listen to what Mwine Lubemba will tell us.
      2). Sata is already prohibited in Western Province, can not win in Northwestern and Southern, let will not talk about the Eastern Province.
      3). Copperbelt and Lusaka Provinces, alinyela ukufumina menshi……

      In short, Sata aitaya…. Viva Team GBM

    • LusakaTimes, have you done photoshop?
      How can a Range rover be in Zambia, even british people cant afford those expensive cars.

      Some of us need answers!

      Thanks

    • GBM! GBM! GBM!,,,Where is My friend Nostradamus?,, Nostra boi, my boys on the ground tell me that you chantered a plane direct to Lusaka, you then accompanied GBM`s legal team to woodland police and you flew back immediately after the interview…yayayayaya
      Sata has created problems for himself,, on one front HH, on the other GBM plus the disease..kaya

    • @Ndobo… I was at the briefly, its classified! I was on special encrypted “Go meetings” with the legal team. By-the-way, your Chief Enyambo Yeta helped us, I wonder WHY!!
      You remember when GBM was Acting PRESIDENT!! Do YOU? !! That was a week to remember!! At least we brushed that out and finally deleted.
      GBM GBM GBM….!!

    • @Nostradamus
      Dont wonder, Mulena (Chief) Inyambo is a bussinesman.. sleeping partner in Arizona thats why hes tight naba chikwanda,, so ya his bussines interest is threatened.
      why not think Arizona trucks are safe in sesheke??

    • What continues to amaze me is the continued lack of strategic thinking and risk assessment by the PF leadership. Surely someone must have suggested that they consider all possible ramifications for taking this route as opposed to “publicly thanking GBM” and push him out in a different but calculated way. The only way Sata knows in dealing with adversaries is to unleash the forces of the state on individual citizens irrespective of who is watching. Clearly every Zambian and anyone for that matter can tell that this is political persecution by any measure and it also confirms that PF are the worst corrupt party in Zambian history if they can publicly protect their ministers. What an evil way to be. Kabimba and Masebo must be hiding something with state interference in their cases.

    • Paolo – Seems you’re still in the stone age. Try and do some research before your comment baba, before you start showing your ignorance on this forum.

      GBM fears no one, not even Sata. He just has respect for the man, as a well mannered Bemba man.

    • GBM’s mouth is victimizing his body. The man has been behaving like an ostrich that buries its small head in the sand thinking it has hidden itself. GBM’s riches are connected to Govt contracts and to be on radio radio daily denouncing the same Govt is the most damn thing l have ever heard of. Fili uko tileya.

  2. Indeed animal farm,but I thought he was cleared together with kabimba by ACC.What has changed now, anyway its politics in Zambia.

  3. Behold medieval times are upon us yet again! So this is only showing up NOW!??? Are you guys even watching your own circus??

  4. This shows that Kabimba also has cases to answer.But why should government work like this really?These are offences that were raised when he was still a cabinet minister and was “cleared”. Why now?

  5. When he was still a cabinet minister, the Anti Corruption commission had advised that he was cleared and there was no tangible evidence.
    Has evidence suddenly been found?

  6. Animal farm indeed run by a baboon. They cleared the man together with kabimba now they reopen the case just because he is in bad books with the baboon.

  7. Zambia icalo caba Christian! Where is Mr. Sata, who claims 2b a Staunch Catholic the Church that believes in the rule off law taking this nation to????? Is PF serious? Ba Sata mwatunfwishe nsoni fwe ba Katolika mwandi!

    • Christians kwisa? These people calling themselves Christian this and that are deadly hypocrites. Ba nyandulwe, safunika kunkala pafupi na mpoto ya ndiyo! Bad people. Abweletsa ziko pansi.

  8. Zambia icalo caba Christian! Where is Mr. Sata, who claims 2b a Staunch Catholic the Church that believes in the rule of law taking this nation to????? Is PF serious? Ba Sata mwatunfwishe nsoni fwe ba Katolika mwandi! Ati Zero tolarance to Corruption! Kaya!

    • Do you ever learn on when to use caps and when not to!!!!!!!!!!!

      GBM fears no one. Just to put you in perspective here:

      1). Bashi Lubemba will declare Sata prohibited in there Chiefdom, and that includes Muchinga and Luapula. Remember, we are very loyal to our Chiefs than politicians.
      2). Sata is already prohibited in Western Province, can not win in Northwestern and Southern, let alone Eastern Province.
      3). Copperbelt and Lusaka Provinces, alinyela ukufumina menshi……

      In short, Sata aitaya…. Viva Team GBM

  9. I have always thought that GBM needs to visit a plastic surgery to have that apron r around his waist removed. He would look a lot thinner with it gone, he looks fat because of the excess skin hes remained with after losing weight.
    By the way, theres nothing wrong with necessary plastic surgery, iyabipa ni cosmetic plastic surgery especially if you can afford it.

  10. This is a political persecution GBM is undergoing. Where is the law in Zambia? is crime only committed by those who have differed with PF? How many times has Rupiah, Nevers, Hakahinde, Father Bwalya and many more been to court and police station? PF U ARE playing with fire. Remember God, the world and Zambians are watching the SELECTIVE JUSTICE being introduced in Zambia. Here in UK people resign on moral grounds, when they don’t agree with certain things. Mwamba knows alot about PF and the end of this fight might end at a sad note. What Mwamba has done for PF can not be compared to those after his life. Lets wait & see. PF don’t spoil your own game. U may go quickly in the history of Zambia.

  11. @lombe c, what’s the hate for my man?
    I read nothing in her writing worthy getting so worked up about- she’s formal & has spoken her mind as usual, which should be encouraged.
    please take a deep breath and relax. cerebral blood vessels are more fragile nowadays- you may just burst one over nothing.

    by the [email protected] Mushota, GBM during his interview said he can buy any vehicle under the sun without putting a dent in his account. Beside, ever heard of Japanese used cars? plenty in Zambia!

  12. Thats GBM for you! Obviously those hungry cops were even smilling when interogating him whilst winking meanwhile wishing and crossing their fingers so the loaded guy could drop some one dollar change on the floor! Hihihihihihihi… am just loving this show and the staging was excellent, check out the ride and the police characters ……..yessss!

  13. these cases are going no where. by the time they are concluded in the courts of law, the instigator will have passed on. so GBM worry not because it is just a tide passing by. nfula pakuya ilonaula ifisabo. shipa fye we mwaume just like HH is withering away the pressure and sending it back to the sender.

  14. Three issues:
    a) GBM guilt is not questionable (do not worry GBM, Nchito will as usually mess-up)
    b) what about his Cabinet partners in plundering Zambian people?
    c) no authorization from above?

  15. Interesting to note that since GBM left the PF inner circle there are NO more coffin parading demonstrations againist Winter. I am not fan of Winter but I can’t help but notice who the cause of that confusion was. Rent a crowd brigade!

  16. Now ACC under test. Initially GBM and Kabimba were cleared but after resigning GBM has the case to answer. What next? Kabimba?

  17. @Mushota,
    What is a range rover? Are you informed or not?
    Take a look at the following:

    *********

    It is very clear that you have remained behind in knowledge and exposure.
    Now you have a better understanding.

  18. ZAMBIA SHOULD with immediate effect DISBAND THIS USELESS RUBBER STAMP, THAT’S KNOWN AS -THE ANTI CORRUPTION COMMISSION!
    It is a Sheer waste of Public funds, that could be used for improving hospitals, paying Nurses, or building a better Woodlands Police station rather than using Welensky’s old outdated dilapidated station.
    This A.C.C is just a pay-station for P.F cader’s to enlarge their bellies, & steal @Tax payers expence
    1. Why did these Useless A.C.C officers find G.B.M with no case to answer, months ago, only to change the tune once it suits them? We are Not Daft & Heads will roll, once P.F is out of office as A.C.C officers are collecting a wage whilst telling us lies- PURE CORRUPTION!
    2. Any sane Zambian who thinks I.D.C will work, better check whats happened in G.B.M’s…

    • (continued)
      story, where the Inner people are protected to Rape our resources @ expense of ordinary Zambians, & once one leaves the (Coven of Crooks), they lose all protection of the P.F. Mafia lords.
      A.C.C, I.D.C, KANGALUWI proposed Mine, are all Gravy Trains for a Very Nepotistic, Tribalist, & Most un- trustworthy Government we’ve ever had the misfortune of having since our independence in 1964.

  19. L.T, Behave & post the second part of 26. I’m getting more concerned that U r becoming a Cadre Paper, as the continuation of 26, is NOT offensive in anyway but truthful.

  20. The issue is not whether GBM is guilt or not. Lets reflect; GBM and Kabimba were declared CLEARED by ACC what has changed now. Why should cases begin to come when he has retired? This simply means even when GBM was minister government knew about these corruption cases but kept quiet because he was on their side. We can then conclude that Kabimba was right when said PF is very corrupt but one can only be investigated when they become “enemies” to the party?

  21. A banana republic where laws are selectively applied only if one gets into bad books with the misruling buffoon @plot 1. Why are these bogus charges being brought up now if these puppets of justice are not politically compromised?

  22. ACC/POLICE?

    FORGING A ZIM LETTER HEADED DOCUMENT IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.

    REMEMBER MPOMBO’S CASE? MPOMBO IS IN JAIL FOR FORGERY.
    HE PRESENTED FAKE RECEIPTS WHICH WERE PURPORTED TO HAVE BEEN ISSUED TO HIM BY SOME LODGE….

    USUALLY CASES LIKE THESE ARE UNEARTHED WHEN SOMEONE LEAVES PUBLIC OFFICE.

    GBM SHOULD HAVE JUST KEPT A LOW PROFILE WHEN HE LEFT PUBLIC OFFICE AND NOT TO ENGAGE ‘THE BOMA’ IN A DUEL VERBAL FIGHT. GBM MIGHT REGRET.

    ZRA IS STILL COMING!

  23. RUSSIAN MILLIONAIRE,

    AS A BUSINESSMAN OR AS A POLITICIAN, DON’T COMPETE WITH THE STATUS QUO FOR SPACE. REMEMBER THE RUSSIAN MILLIONAIRE, MIKHAIL KHODORKOVSKY OR JULIUS MALEMA NEXT DOOR OR OUR OWN MBOMBO!

    1. Khodorkovsky Was Charged And Sent To Jail For Fraud And Tax Evasion.
    2. Malema Is in Court Today For Tax Evasion.
    3. Mpombo Is in Jail For Fraud.

    I AM AFRAID GBM WILL GO IN FOR FRAUD AND POSSIBLY FOR TAX EVASION.

    GOVERNMENTS ALL OVER THE WORLD KEEP CERTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT US CONFIDENTIAL.THEY WILL CORNER YOU, IF YOU TRY TO SMARTER THAN THEM.

  24. @mushota i think you need to come out of the diaspora you are living in, it has clogged your brain…Range rovers are not a rare sight in Zambia we actually have a dealership you are free to walk in a droool seeing as you don’t see them were you seem to be living

    • @ Mushota I have heard people say you are a PHD student.
      I don’t agree with them coz you debate like you are fro Chibolya compound.
      I also own a Range Rover jst for your own information.
      Come back to Zambia I marry you ok?

  25. NEVER EVER TRY TO OUT-SHINE YOUR BOSS. AND REMEMBER PRIDE GOES BEFORE A FALL. TO WIN A BATTLE AIM AT REDUCING THE NUMBER OF YOUR ENEMIES.

  26. Ba sata wake up from your slumber before it things get worse.these people you ve embraced re destroying your reputation,is resigning a govt portifolio a crime?

  27. Chaps, you surprise me. This fat wobbly blubber thinks he can fight the state machinery. The fact is if he did commit those offences, the state will make sure that they hang him to dry. Problem is these guys forget that they will one time be out of office and their deeds will be exposed. You can not use your office to pay yourself back for the contributions you made to your party, gbm must understand this.
