UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has charged that Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda must be fired for mismanaging the economy.

And Mr Mwamba has observed that the current PF administration is very different from the PF which formed Government under the leadership of late President Michael Sata.

Mr Mwamba said Mr Chikwanda is responsible for the current economic woes that Zambia is experiencing.

He was speaking Sunday afternoon when he featured on a special Burning Issue radio program on 5 FM from his plush Kabulonga residence.

‘As much as some of these economic challenges are global in nature, as a Businessman i can tell you that my cousin Mr Chikwanda has failed to manage the economy, just look at the rate of the depreciation of the Kwacha, the man has failed to respond appropriately,’ Mr Mwamba said.

He added, ‘If it were up to me, i would have fired Mr Chikwanda a long time ago because he has failed to advise Edgar (President Lungu).’

‘Yes some of these things might be global but not at the extent at which the Kwacha is depreciating, as a Businessman, i am not able to plan. The blame should be on the President and his team, if i had a chance the first person i would fire today is my cousin Mr Chikwanda because he has mismanaged the economy.’

He continued, ‘Edgar is not being assisted at all. He has no economic background like myself and HH, he cannot even use his intuition and make certain judgements based on his experience, he is just a lawyer. He has not been a businessman before.’

Mr Mwamba also labelled the PF administration under President Lungu as a flop.

He said the current PF under President Lungu is different from the one that existed during the time of late President Sata.

‘May President Sata who is my mentor rest in peace, the man took me through the a lot of political lessons and that is why today i am one of the most outstanding politicians in Zambia but i will tell you about PF today, there is PF blue and PF Green,’ Mr Mwamba said.

He added, ‘The PF which is in power today is not the PF the people elected, the PF of today is now MMD, can you see the cabinet ministers appointed today? These are the Ministers we were fighting? Dora Siliya at some pointed insulted Sata and GBM when she came for a bye election in Kasama, Dr Kaingu tore Sata’s speech in Parliament right in our eyes.’

He said a lot of things have gone wrong under President Lungu adding that governance under the PF has crumbled including all key sectors of the economy.

‘Even if i was serving in PF today, i would have resigned out of principle, i would not have worked with Hon Siliya and Hon Kaingu.’

Mr Mwamba added, ‘Governance under the PF is a total flop, they don’t even know whether they are going backwards or sideways but let us not cry about spilt milk, we should move forward, we have 2016 to come, Zambians i have interacted with have realised that it is time to change government.’

    • It is wrong to say fire Chikwanda.
      It is better Chikwanda just resign himself because he has stopped working and he no longer used by Edgar.
      Sata used to leave Chikwanda as acting president, only one time he made mistake he left instruments of power to Edgar and never returned. Edgar has never left Chikwanda as acting president or even go with him on his trips, like Sata used to do.
      It is Edgar who need fired.

  1. UPND is also not RED its green and blue. Look at Masebo, GBM, Wlliam Banda, Nalumango,Maaureen Mwanawasa, Milupi, Felix Mutati , all these pipo did they form UPND? GBM, open your eyes these Tongas called HH, they are using you they think having u in place they can have votes from kasama just wait after 2016 elections they will dump all the NON TONGAS. Lungu may look not done well but HH is not the alternation to leadership. Look , GBM,HH and their teams, buy in LUASKA AND KAFUE WHILE THE MINES ARE BEEN CLOSED, they cant even help pipo who work in the mines.

  2. Where is william Banda who insulted sata, where is hh who called u a big body with small brain. Were u initially in upnd or u just joined them. To me Dora, kaingu and yourself u r just the same. The only difference is that kaingu and Dora have joined a winning team unlike u a perpertual loser

  3. I have differed with you GBM on so many issues but on this one I totally agree with you on the Doro and Kaingu issue.
    those are just empty as a empty grain bag just in PF to eat nothing at all to add to the PF

    • I was also wondering, how do you rate yourself? I thought people are supposed to tell! And if people have not yet said it, then there’s no way to label oneself as Outstanding Politician. We have not forgotten ba GBM, when the big man was leaving us you had not reconciled with him and you in fact resigned from his government. So don’t smear us butter today, we were also there!

  4. IT IS SELF EVIDENT THAT THE PF GOVERNMENT HAS COMPLETELY FAILED. COME 2016 THE PF HAS TO GO. WE CAN NOT CARRY ON LIKE THIS. LUNGU AND RUPHIA BANDA HAVE TO BE RETIRED. FOR ALL THOSE STAUNCH PF CADRES DENIAL OR NOT THE TRUTH IS RUPHIA BANDA IS NOW PRESIDENT OF PF AND IS RUNNING THE SHOW!!!!!!

  5. But that HH called you BEMBE KAWALALA for him it is ok? What of the UPND is it the same with you as vice president and you want the PF to remain the same how you left Sata in PF!!!

  6. UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba observed that the current PF administration is very different from the PF which formed Government under the leadership of late President Michael Sata…..

    was Mr Chikwanda not part of the team?

  7. PF GOVERNMENT IS ZAMBIA’S FAILED PROGRAM INDEED. THE POOR OLD CHIKWANDA IS A TOTAL MISPLACEMENT AND HIS WRONG JUDGEMENT HAS DRAGGED OUR COUNTRY INTO SERIOUS MAD. LUNGU IS NOT A SERIOUS LEADER FOR HIM TO KEEP MINISTERS LIKE CHIKWANDA WHO ARE DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO MAKE OUR COUNTRY A BETTER COUNTRY. LUNGU DOESN’T LOVE ZAMBIA. LUNGU IS JUST A TICK THAT IS SIMPLY SUCKING BLOOD BEFORE IT DROPS DEAD.

  8. Stop the rot and gabbage. Tuli babemba bonse and don’t think your using the bemba tag will win you the presidency. God chooses who becomes rulers and makes *****s like you lose even more.

  9. VICE PRESIDENT FOR (Ulya Palya Ni Devil) UPND ECHILONGANINO MWAJOINA LOSHENI IFYAKUCHITA FIRE HH NAIMWE MWEBENE MUICHITE FIRE BCOS YOU ARE NOT FIT TO BE IN POLITICS YOU BUSSINESSMEN.WHY CANT YOU DROW LESSONS FROM DANGOTE YU & HH ARE SUPPOSE TO BE EXPORTING GUDS,ADVISING GOVT ON POLICY MATTERS BUT~ ANYWAY GBM REST FIRST YU VE JOINED A GROUP WHICH PRETEND TO LOVE U BUT BACK BITS YU SAYING U CANT BE VICE PRES WHEN THERE HAVE BEEN MPS WHO HAVE STRUGGLED WITH THE PARTY IN HARD TIMES. THEY HAVE OPTED TO USE & DUMP U LIKE A BABY DAIPA. TAKE CARE BANDA LOST A WIFE.TONDOLO MUSUMA LELO NGAWAMUBALA KUTI~

  10. Gbm is really of low education , he is forgetting that he has not resigned as a pf mp and he is a recycled politician in upnd.

  11. GBM, am very surprised that a person like you who claim to “be a seasoned politician today” can start choosing and selecting who is supposed to join a party or not. I thought politics is all about numbers! What ba GBM should have stuck to in your interview is the focus on Chikwanda and his performance as Finance Minister and not advising PF which person is eligible to join the party.
    Have you forgotten that you have just joined a party in which its leader, HH, never respected the late President Sata and also kept insulting you when you were in PF? How many right offs have since joined Ulya Palya Ni Devil (UPND) party and you have kept a blind eye?
    Your interview to say the least is as empty as your leader! We all know that some of the things happening in Zambia today is because HH…

  12. contd
    Your interview to say the least is as empty as your leader! We all know that some of the things happening in Zambia today is because HH borrowed a lot of money for the January 2015 elections and assured the lenders that we would win, now that is very clear that he will not win General Elections, he doesn’t know where the money to repay back will come from and hence he is busy asking investors to stay away from Zambia to make seem that PF has failed. This is the bottom line of things, your HH is highly indebted man and sooner than later you will know the truth which we all know you dont know, the lenders will be on him once he loses the 2016 elections.

  13. UNIP had people from ANC and UPP. MMD had people from UNIP. PF has people from MMD and UPND. UPND has people from PF and MMD. Zambia has just been recycling the same politicians or the same ideologies in disguise.

  14. To speak the truth whether I like GBM or not, we in PF have failed the Zambian People. But failure is a world problem bwana GBM. Do not blame us.

  15. Mwanawasa and his team under the new Deal Govt Managed Zambia ‘s economy better.This was after Privatisation has already happened. Not at any time did they blame H.H for having played a role in the privatisation of the mines like we hear today.Rather they worked flat out to revamp the economy to the point of reducing the US$7billion debt to US$500m ,the value of the kwacha came to as low as K3000 to US$1. (KR3.00 to US$1)
    The question is why can’t it be done now? Why not take advice from Magande and Caleb Fundanga these men are still arouind in Zambia?

  16. GBM IS A PRINCIPLED MAN. HE REFUSED TO SELL HIS OWN TRIBE BECAUSE OF POSITION AS DEFENSE MINISTER WHEN BA SATA TOLD HIM TO GO AND STOP HIS CHIEF SOSALA OF TODAY.
    I SALUTE YOU SIR GO FORWARD.

  17. This grade 12 drop out has now got the guts to say he is an economist? Lol give us a break yes ECL maybe ‘just’ a lawyer but a law firm is a business at the end of the day so he ahs run something of note but you sir never saw the insides of high education and that’s why you can make such careless statements. As Alex is your cousin and yes the family forest of PF died with your nephew so too will UNPD when they lose next years elections again…..

  18. @sure please get your facts right. When LPM took over Government Zambia had qualified to HIPIC so most of its debt was written off to give Zambia a fresh life. It was the hard work of Katele Kalumba, Stella Chibanda, Prof Mweene to mention a few that got the cooperating partners to forgive zambias debt…so when Magande came to the fore he didn’t have a headache of looking to settle foreign debt….hence we had money to play with and play we did, the treasury had reserves hence we could afford to waste money on the Task Force or whatever fancy tickled us…when LPM fell ill we again played with cash even when the French government picked up his medical bill we pretended we where paying so we ate some more cash….enter Lupiya I mean Rupiah lol..by the time Sata took over we took Zambia…

  19. ..’with Dora and Kaingu on board, I could have resigned out of principle….’ what is trying to tell Kabwili….
    ……these interviews were by the interviewee himself prepares the questions to be asked… don’t make sense….there are a lot of questions which arose out of GBM answers but were not asked…what sort of journalism is that…???

  20. Sour grapes ! just come back home to PF where you belong.UPND will just mess you up.They want to use get votes from bembaland and there after dump you.

  21. So the great bag of maize thinks he is a better economic manager because he runs companies which were awarded contracts under dubious means. Here is some news for, should HH lose the next elections then I can safely say your companies will also go down. Your businesses like those of most Zambians has been dependent on patronage from politicians. Remember how you awarded your self that ZESCO contract.

  22. COMMENT
    Ba GBM, from your comments we can safely say that you are a failed politician, and certainly a failed economist (but are you an economist anyway?). The current economic problems have their roots in the government which you were very much part and parcel of, do you that we are fools to divorce you from the current economic challenges? You were with Chikwanda while he passed all those SIs, and when you passed all those mineral royalties. Worse still, your current president publicly advocated windfall taxes while today he wants to tell us different stories. Just shut up GBM! By the way GBM, do you honestly believe that you are Vice President to HH? Can you be allowed to take over from HH? Or can Canissius take over? Never, you guys have the wrong ethnic DNA to qualify, so shut up…

  23. Ba GBM, from your comments we can safely say that you are a failed politician, and certainly a failed economist (but are you an economist anyway?). The current economic problems have their roots in the government which you were very much part and parcel of, do you that we are fools to divorce you from the current economic challenges?

  24. Atleast GBM is a principled man than Kambwili,remember when he was told to choose between Sosala and his job. Unlike Kambwili he was just yapping he can’t work with Dora but today where is Dora working right in the stupid PF with him. Come 2016 ni ZAMBIA forward chabe and I regret voting for the visionless Lutuku president.

  25. Honestly do you expect American yo have voted for a General as president bcoz of Osama bin laden? GBM needs to think twice before making his pronouncements.
