UPND Supporters welcome GBM and HH

Opposition UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says Kasama PF Central MP Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) was unanimously elected and accepted as party vice-president by the entire UPND structures at all levels.

Speaking when he addressed what UPND media unit described as a mammoth crowd that welcomed the UPND team at Kasama Airport yesterday morning, Mr. Hichilema told the people of Kasama to ignore those saying GBM was imposed on the people.

“I want to thank you people of Kasama and Northern Province for giving us such as gallant friend of mine and fellow citizens to be the Vice-President of the UPND, the party that will form government in the next few months with your support. Like we said, GBM has not resigned from PF, the party he tirelessly worked for to put in government but has now been hijacked by other people without a vision these colleagues had. But as usual they have appetite for creating bye-elections even when farmers have not been paid and there are other serious economic challenges facing the country,” Mr. Hichilema who spoke in Bemba told the jubilant Kasama residents that later lined-up the entire route from airport to town center.

And Kasama MP GBM said he was happy to be the Vice President of UPND, a party which represents all people in Zambia and has a clear alternative policies to economically liberate the country.

The Kasama law marker said Zambians were one people and must all solidly rally behind the UPND leadership that has people’s interest at heart.

“The entire country is now shouting ‘Zambia Forward. Are we people in Kasama and Northern Province going to remain? GBM asked the crowd that responded they will not remain”. I cannot mislead you people here and it is important you all come with me in the UPND and its leadership. I don’t just move anyhow like others who are being paid money at the expense of the country.

I know what I am doing and it is important we join hands and save our collapsing economy through Mr. Hichilema and the UPND leadership. I know the PF are pushing for a bye-election here even when they have not paid you for your maize and there is no medicines in hospitals.
If they push for it, we should show them that we can’t accept the nonsense of having wasteful expenditure when the country has no money,” GBM told the crowd.

The UPND team comprised President Hichilema, Vice-President GBM, National Trustee Bernard Mpundu, Senior Officials Fredson Yambayamba who was also losing candidate for Senga Hill, Former MMD National Secretary Richard Kachingwe, and other senior party officials in the province and district.

  1. Double-speaking GBM, how can you be in two parties at the same time? Define where you stand unless you are fearing defeat in a by-election. Test your popularity in yoiur new party.

    • The bye election looming in Kasama is shaping up to be a bye election of all bye elections and will firmly shut the door to any more bye elections consciously induced by a sitting MP. This is a game changer.

    • GBM has got problems in submitting to other people, and it’s only a matter of time before he takes the confusion he brought in PF to UPND.

    • UPND let go of Kapita, just wondering why PF are making so much noise over GBM? HH and UPND have made a very smart decision. The gain for UPND in terms of GBM is more than a 100 times what PF will get from Kapita.

    • GBM was disowned by PF a long time ago. He is the one clinging to the party when they have clearly asked his fat behind to leave. He was a non-issue in the previous elections and he still will be in the next.
      Congrats UPND for your new Vice President who still wants to be PF!

    • It will be interesting to see what will happen to the top upnd leadership when they lose in the Kasama by- election…

      Let I said before and saying it again, it doesn’t matter who stands on a PF ticket in Northern Province or a UPND ticket in Southern Province, the opposition will always lose in any case.

      Setting the records straight here… this is not at all being tribal but only articulating the realities of where we are now as a country and our fledgling democracy. It is a very sad development but it is reality at this very minute.

      And just so know, this by-election will have a huge bearing on the victorious party in next year’s election…

    • @ Mist, you can have both. You can drink cow milk and eat cow later. GBM wanted to continue milking the PF cow they sold to RB.
      But styupidy PF decided is to slaughter a cow, so GBM says fine then lets go and buy another cow, this time a Tonga bleed.

    • Woooow!!! The mammoth crowd that lined the streets of Kasama included pupils coming from writing their mock exams!!!

  2. This is where UPND loses it or as we used to say in Lusaka AITAYA..

    Number 1: ..how can this be a mammoth crowd?

    Number 2: When were these elections held at every UPND branch level to elect GBM and who were the other contestants?

    HH and his crooks think Zambians are sleepy and dwanzy and all you need is lie to them to get them vote for you. No UPND you have lost it , stop lying We all know GBM was hand picked by you HH the great financier of UPND and the rest had no say

    • GBM is going to regret joining UPND the day the rest of party starts talking behind his back in Tonga after using him. I hope he understands Tonga.

  4. Regardless of which party GBM belongs to, I have just never been a fan of this fat dude. The fact that people see leadership qualities in GBM worth praising just goes to show how poor we are when it comes to having a pool of quality leaders to choose from.

    It is the same characters jumping from one party to another who add no value to our development as a country. I know that it is said “numbers matter in politics”. I would rather have quality than quantity. I would rather be right and in the minority than wrong and in the majority.

    • What is also disconcerting is how people change their opinions about someone simply based on the party that they belong to. Just look at how GBM and Masebo are being celebrated on Zambian Watchdog now simply because they are supporting UPND. Equally, the Watchdog was an ardent supporter of RB when he was facing his trials now he is persona non-grata number 1 simply because he endorsed Lungu! GBM is a known violent thug who beats his wife, has made ethnically inflamatory statements including one in which he falsely accused some Tongas of plotting to kill Bembas two years ago and has faced allegations of corruption in his business dealings but UPND are prepared to overlook all of this simply because he has joined UPND! The fat b’stard should be in jail and not a VP of a political party!

  6. GBM has betraying us the people of Kasama and he will lose big time for causing unnecessary election.His behaviour politically is uncalled for:All he thinks of is how he can become president….selfishness.

  7. @csar I agree with you 100% I don’t see anything worth praising about GBM his followers mistake his wealth to wisdom. The man amazes, surprises me when he fronts his wealth at all his political adversaries eg calling Mwimba Malama and Chisala mwenchushi mwe when they were challenging him to resign and show his popularity in Kasama. Now that his seat is vacant let him contest and we will see if people of kasama will vote for him.

  8. My brothers and sisters. What is happening to this years marketing season? Is govt going to buy my maize? Im told the bus fares from Katete to Lusaka will now be at K170.00 and a small luggage bag K20.00.
    The spares for my tractor are costing twice as much due to the ailing Dora.

    Is this the meaning of Kolopa?

  9. Ignore the plot at yo own peril you verbal-panga weilders! UPND have won a very principled son of the soil, who clearly and undauntedly rejected Sata’s gun-point politics in the Chitimukulu saga – GBM chose FAMILY above political promise! I for one found that very astute, read what Mwinelubemba has been writing and fill-in the blanks! Elo lwanya I tell u Folks – FOWARD !!

  12. HH I really was routing for you. Comments by people discrediting you I found a logic way to make sense of what you were trying to say. I thought because of your education was the reason for me to elect you as my president so you can move our nation forward. I am sorry to say that this is not moving forward with GBM. It won’t be long before you have a miscommunication which might end up with blows and insults. In my opinion GBM is not the right candidate for the position because he is not a team player. He has aspirations of being president and everyone knows that. Maybe your strategy is the wealth you gentlemen have but you need more than that when managing a nation. You know your economics and one key indicator to a nation is education. There are far much better candidates than GBM.

  18. When where the elections for JBM held? GBM should just know that he is just being used by HH to gain popularity in northern province and he will be replaced by a Tonga if by any chance UPND forms government. UPND is a tribal Tonga under five party which failed to accommodate even their tribal cousin Sakwiba Sikota.

  25. The people of Kasama must exercise their highest use of their morals and natural intellect in balancing their opinion on a man who had his feet in one party then played for another until forced to give up his seat.

    He is a man eaten by unfulfilled ambition. We have seen him change his support of PF after a long charade of forgiveness. He is a deceitful man joining another in a campaign of corrupting the minds of Zambians in an attempt of winning power.

  28. UPND’s desperation with the lack of talent is pitiful. They have nowhere to go now but put up the last decomposing apples in the bottom of their rotting barrel. Nothing like knocking nails into your own coffin is there?

    GBM is an !d1ot who is very volatile and goes off at the drop of a hat and cannot deal with pressure. He is pathetic weak with zero charm or leadership qualities. Well and so are HH and Banda so am sure they will make a interesting ‘leadership’ team.

    This gives a whole new meaning to the old saying – “Any chain is as strong as it’s weakest link”.

And anyway why even bother explaining that GMB that sack of maize was overwhemingly or is it unanimously supported by the Unproductive Now Defunct Party structures, who asked them, if I may ask, telltale signs of deperado!

I think its time for Zambians to vote out PEF government,how do you continue borrowing like this,You can’t always plan your debts repayment on revenue collection from people the few taxpayers are over stretched by these unplanned debts that Lungu and his government are incurring we as the Zambians deserve better,i love mother Zambia and its my hope that when I return home I can save in a corrupt free government,the only party that can save Zambia from this mess according to me is UPND,look at the party!,put a side tribal lines,the party has great minds,its full of men and women of great wisdom the likes of Mutati,Mr Patel.Vote for UPND for what it stands for not tribe,if Zambia voted on basis of tribe then Mwanawasa tribe lines would have continued becoz that was the best government ever!

  32. Lungu is only 6 months in office and you say he has failed. Do you know what it takes to turn around things nationally. This is where you should begin to weigh the lies of opposition saying they can turn tables overnight. Under5 yesterday confirmed he can only manage to see progress of economy after 5years. It took mwanawasa a term before we could see real working govt that’s why in 2006 sata nearly won because things were not good in levys first term. So all you opposition should grow a brain and start looking at real challenges the present govt is facing. It will be retrogressive to replace pf next year after they have now gotten to know the system.

I am sure many PF MPs who are sitting on the fence will jump to HH and GBM’s side. They are just waiting for gratuity only. Ba Lungu Moslem Chagwa Kaminamisa jemasoni Vodka will cry like Lupiya .

  35. GBM BRINGS A DARK CLOUD TO UPND!
    Darkness has befallen us again. We have in UPND a mad man called GBM, who is so illiterate with his money that after insulting Tongas in Kabwe just before 2015 elections he can turn around and fool Zambian that he is not tribal. HH has made a double mistake because I know deep in my heart my MPs in Parliament are weeping and lamenting where our Party is going.
    I have not heard from our mother Mutinta Mazoka speak on the GBM saga because there is enough nausea in Southern Province at the site of this insulting cruel, hard-hearted fellow who even fight and beats up his own workers openly.
    MP Nkombo’s comment on GBMwaits, but my advice to my brother is “Take courage and surprise your enemies by standing in 2016.” To hell with the 4 time loser!
