UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba commonly known as GBM has assured his supporters that he is in high spirit as he prepares for police questioning set for Woodlands Police Station on Wednesday.

Police in Lusaka originally planned to question Mr Mwamba on Tuesday over a police raid at his business premises in Lusaka where some youths were apprehended after they were found with what police called offensive weapons.

But Mr Mwamba has confirmed that he will attend the interviews at 09 Hours and that he is in high spirits.

He said the youths apprehended by police are not a militia wing of the UPND.

Mr Mwamba reiterated that it is the ruling PF that has a militia youth which he said disrupted the UPND’s recent mobilisation on the Copperbelt.

He has since thanked the UPND youths for having protected his delegation whilst on the Copperbelt.
“These thugs are the same ones that endangered the life of Hon Miles Sampa and numerous others on board a flight that was due to land at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe recently. The thugs are led by someone known as Chile 1, others are Tobi, Solo, Obert, Niza, Laz, Kabobola,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Lusaka Magistrate on Tuesday granted bail to 17 youths belonging to the UPND that were arrested by police after a raid at a business premises belonging to Mr. Mwamba.

The youths who included one female have been charged with offensive drilling.

    • I am generally independent minded when it comes to politics, my interest are merely to see that Africa & Zambia in particular has in place effective leadership that would allow the citizens to tap into their creative ingenuity and develop themselves and their communities.

      However it does amaze me that someone, anyone claiming to have the interest of the nation can & in this particular case be supporting the sort of leadership that PF of Edgar Lungu has instituted. This makes no sense to me, this isn’t rocket science, it is & has to be obvious that no country on Earth can and or has been known to make progress under such conditions of governance. The question is who are these people supporting PF? Are they genuine Zambians? Are they just some selfish individuals who place their…

    • Are they just some selfish individuals who place their personal desires above the good of the nation? Are they Judas Iscariots? Friends, ladies & gentlemen, let us be sensible & for once let us do the right thing for the sake of the our nation. You must never forget that our personal selfish interests are better served in a progressive, successful nation. In that sort of a nation, we all have a chance at making for ourselves decent & dignified lives & layout a future of hope for our next generation. Do the right thing for once Africans, think & however hard this might be for some of you, do try please.
      Thank You

    • I go to Gold Gym, because my wife Zumba there. I never see a bunch of youths. But at YMCA, I only see some yoyoyos just like those kaponyas from GBM gym. Bad customer base.
      What’s my point? GBM needs to upgrade. Make gym for diplomats, you never be summoned to police.

    • Lungu is a febble president now finding comfort in whisky to quench his desperation.

      The youth Lungu arrested will be vindicated and set free after which they will sue the government for damages.

      How can a militia of 21 be trained using one machete nine rounds of ammunition without a gun? Lungu is going mad with desperation . He needs mental psychoanalysis for sure.

      All these actions by PF are helping undecided voters to now support UPND cos they see madness and desperation in PF.

      VIVA UPND THE PARTY OF CHOICE IN 2016.

    • Militia training in a gym and at home?……Hmmmm. Such a militia ought not to be taken serious, it is certainly ill trained and useless.

      Most if not all houses have offensive weapons. Search any home, you will find weaponry; knives, hammers, slashers, screw drivers and sometimes Pangas, more commonly used by Political F00ls. All you have to do is qualify them as “offensive” and all heads of households will be answering that charge at the police stations throughout the country. This is how ridiculous this sounds.

    • What drama in my country! Let Lungu be careful the way he is kicking this country. It will be sad when he leaves office in August. PF has been rejected by the majority especially the workers and farmers in Zambia because it has made life miserable. I hate to say it but I voted for these buffoons who have killed the economy. Not again can I make such a mistake neither can a poor farmer think of that! MMD was even much better than PF under lungu.

    • Kambwili and Frank Bwalya once said GBM is not a factor. Why is he being questioned now if its not for the fact that he has cemented the penetration of UPND in PF former strongholds.

      I can not wait to see how the campaigns will pan out in CB Luapula Muchinga and Northern Provinces . Evidence on the ground suggest that people will do a donchi Kubeba on PF because balelya beka.

      85% of Zambians are saying PF kuyabele uno mwaka whether they rig or not.

  3. GBM is a thug. He uses his money to entice the youth, buys them Junta and chibuku then unleashes them on his perceived political enemies. Look at how he knows all the thugs he helped create in PF, he couldn’t bring them with him (from PF) to UPND.
    UPND would have done better to distance itself from this man. But UPND will go into an alliance with the devil just to win an election.

      he helped create the militia and his creation has turned against him.

  10. There is no bad publicist. Any publicist works for the parties involved. In this case, PF and ZP are campaigning for UPND without realising it. The undecided voters will be asking questions as to what really is the problem that ZP has summoned GBM to police when the PF cadres in military attires can walk freely on our streets. The PF cadres carry different types of weapons, even firing guns and shooting people yet the ZP pay a blind eye. It is ridiculous to expect any serious militia training to be training in such a location. How on earth can a 21 militia group train with 3 machetes and expect them to cause damage to a country?
    What effect does this nonsense have on our foreign visitors coming to Zambia for various reasons? Imagine the apprehension this is to them when they hear the…

  11. I might be wrong but the guys in the picture do not look like they can afford gym fees, let alone three meals a day.

    I go to the gym and that is not what my colleagues and I look or dress like.

    They are flashing UPND symbols. They look like true militias (or would be militias) to me.

  12. THE PAIN OF IMPORTING A THUG FOR VICE PRESIDENT
    UPND never ever engaged in such tactics because Mazoka left a very disciplined party. Any member who is worth his or her sort should carefully analyze the moves being taken by GBM because we are now headed for disaster. GBM is the one who introduced those red berets in PF and when he left PF the thugs were still loyal to him up to now. Who the hell does this man think he is? HH has now clearly shown that he is ready to sacrifice us for his personal agenda with GBM. We need to replace HH as soon as possible because there is chaos in the party and we can not allow our selves to copy criminal activities of PF to succeed in August. We are just being fooled by a thief who beats his workers and wives. It is painful. BB

  15. guys .. this is not the first time panga’s and offencive weapons have been found in GBMs property. maybe the evidence is week but we don’t know the whole story and for UPND cadres to suddenly see GBM as a peaceful person when not long ago he was a chikopo who only knows insults and violence is amazing. clearly violent chaps have left PF … the Kadobi’s and their leader Kabimba, GBM, and the intercity bus terminus guys and we all know where they have gone. whats really sad is that someone releases money to buy pangus meant for violence. even ba supporter sure awe

  17. THE AGONY OF IMPORTING A THUG FOR VICE PRESIDENT
    it is very disheartening to note that GBM has brought criminal activities to our party which Mazoka (MHSRIP) left clean. This so-called vice president for administration beats workers, his wife and so on and we make him vice president. What a joke! The guy is now scheming violence all over and this is sending fears in the electorates. Why do we waste time leaning on HH who has brought this troubled crook? Does HH think the best way to win an election is to become a criminal? GBM has fooled him. Today HH wants to talk, and walk like a thief ( I won’t mention tribe please)…All because he thinks it is thieves who win elections. Let us replace this HH with another credible person. GN for my choice. Time is running out. I am always warning…

    Thats is the game plan. We cant allow thieves to take over the party and bring shame through criminal elements gotten from their forefathers. GBM come from criminals and he is making our party dirty. Let him leave with his compatriot HH. We are winning in August, but with another leader not HH. BB

    • And who buried K2 billion at his farm? Whose son ran away after the 2011 elections because of economic offences? Who forged a certificate at NIPA and ended up being a PF MP and a jailbird? PF has also embraced thieves and criminals. It is a Zambian political thing to embrace thieves and criminals. There is no morality in Zambian politics – – anything goes!

  26. UPND fans should not be surprised that GBM has been arrested on these violence related charges. He was the Chief Architect of the violent PF cadres of Inter-City who doesnt know this. By giving GBM a high appointment UPND has just brought PF violent tendencies in their own back yard. As genuine UPND followers , lets petition HH to delink us from GBM afterall he didnt consult us in the first place ! Why should GBM be senior to Jack Mwimbu?

    Zambia One and Spaka cannot tthink beyond their nose, calling me an imposter, wasting their already useless time. Go on with HH, because I and many others in the party are thirsting for change because the all time loser cannot guarantee us a win in August this year. DO your mathematics well and see how lamentably HH will collapse on the 50+1 platform. You are the same people who kept telling KK “all the people are behind you” when everybody behind was chasing him away from State House. You are very dangerous morons thinking the rubbish GBM has brought to UPND has any glimmer of glory. Nothing but crimes. VIVA GARRY. BB
