Opposition UPND Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba has refuted rumours circulating that he has quit the UPND as he prepares to rejoin the PF.

In a statement, Mr Mwamba who is commonly known as GBM said the rumours are baseless.

He said he has no desire to return to the PF adding that the ruling party has allegedly failed the Zambian people.

Below is Mr Mwamba’s statement.

I Would not normally respond to rumours but I am forced to depart from this norm because remaining silent may be construed as consent.

In the past few days the rumour mill has generated a story that I have or will resign from the UPND as I have intentions of going back to the Patriotic Front.

Let me categorically state and this is official that no iota of me desires to return to the PF, a party that has in a short lifespan sent the Zambian people into extreme abject poverty never seen in this country’s existence.

As a sane person how would I leave a progressive party such as the UPND that has the programs and strategies that would emancipate us from the lack of direction and plans of the PF.

The PF has failed the Zambian people, and in desperation they have now began to use methods that they intend to confuse the Zambians by running a propaganda and malicious campaign on unsubstantiated issues and hope that some of us will look like we have no morals and are job seekers.

I entered politics to serve the people and not for my benefit and I joined and accepted the position of Vice President Administration of this great party and will remain so until the party decides otherwise.

My position is that nothing will make me leave UPND ,and for PF? What a fallacy. Not a party that has no focus and no love for the people they are supposed to serve. A sinking titanic indeed.

Hear it from me, I have not and do not intend to resign from the UPND and will work tirelessly to ensure that the party forms government come August 2016. So all haters sorry.

    • “My position is that nothing will make me leave UPND ,and for PF? What a fallacy. Not a party that has no focus and no love for the people they are supposed to serve. A sinking titanic indeed.” These are truly strong words from GBM. I believe PF has been pleading to him so that he should return because the party is gradually fading. We are here to support GBM and the UPND to help us in this mess PF has created.

    • First, very poorly written statement full of hate & bitterness. Are these GBM’s actual words or he just said to someone “ndembelakofye ifilifyonse endesha mwaice”. I notice that that statement is also not signed. All in All, GBM may be rich but is brainlessly worse than Donald Trump and neither an asset to UPND nor PF.
      Wumfwa iwe GBM, you’re not a factor at all in Zambian politics.

    • But lets not forget that he is fighting a court case to retain his seat as a Pf Kasama MP. It cant be easy standing on the fence for a man of GBM’s stature. Personally I a by-election in Kasama would be a litmus test on just how influential GBM is in the north and how much in-roads UPND has made in the north.

  4. look at the PF propaganda machinery scratching their heads, all their dirty tricks seem to bouncing. They need to try propaganda massaging of the 21 %inflation, the job losses, the load sheading and fall of the kwachas. Or they can advise lungu to create a mess and reverse it to look like he is working, like the ZEACO tariff u-turn.

  5. The fact that he has responded means something. It is like you dumped a girl now you want her back then before you can speak to her then word is already on the street. Do you think you can say you really want that girl? We have been kids before ba GBM now that we have grown up we no longer behave like kids. HH GBM please grow up in 2016.

    • For the same reason that Solwezi MP and others who are still hanging on as UPND MPs while on PF payroll. The reason is gratuity and saving tax payers money on baseless bye-election.

  11. This is a funny one. And he was fighting in court to the wire wanting to be PF member of parliament for Kasama, while being a VP for UPND. Why?

    If the VP goes to Canilias Banda. . GBM will roar like a lion. If Lungu had to asks GBM to run as VP in PF. He will flush UPND in the toilet.

    It appears he gas been forced to say something as HH contemplates on choosing a running mate. Lastly GBM has not added value ti UPND. Better he discharges himself.

  15. Those supporting GBM are as childish as he is. Who doesn’t know that GBM has zero grey matter. I actually feel pity for because no Tonga will ever open their doors to a non-Tonga believe it not. GBM is being used here. Am warning GBM to think twice about UPND-Tonga before he is diched like a used toilet tissue. Don’t say I did not warn you.

  17. The rights of equal citizenship secured by political justice are not subject to the calculus of others. It appears GBM has sent a waive of shock to most of his political rivals. Democracy is all about making responsible decisions meant to make others accountable to their deeds. Puteni cimwela!

  18. Iwe Wanu Ngwee listen. GBM is a factor and a real threat in PF nerves. Let PF police give these gallant soldiers- GBM and HH permits to hold rallies then you will see how the Zambians have have abandoned you. ECL is a president of copy and paste type of a leader.

    We also have a phone conversation in which GBM called General Education Minister Dr. John Phiri asking for help to facilitate him with a grade 12 certificate.

  29. SAIDI CHIBWANA of ngungu ward in Bwacha constituency, kabwe. He will not stand as an MP on UPND ticket, coz he is a G9 failure. This is a guy who only served for three months as DEPUTY MAJOR, under kabwe municipal council in 2014. SAIDI CHIBWANA forged a G12 certificate & he was exposed. With the new constitution am happy, failures lik him will not stand & i will keep am eye on him.
