Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili

Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has condemned the behavior of UPND Vice president Geoffrey Mwamba who allegedly slapped a trader at Kitwe’s Chisokone market.

Dr Kambwili says it is shocking that the UPND leader vented his anger on an innocent trader after marketeers expressed displeasure at his presence at the trading center.

He was speaking in an interview with ZNBC news in Mufulira.

Dr Kambwili has advised Zambians to be weary of some of the leaders seeking public office in the August 11 election.

Meanwhile, UPND has refuted claims that Mr Mwamba assaulted a marketeer at Kitwe’s Chisokone market.

UPND presidential Campaign team member Frank Tayali says Mr Mwamba had a peaceful tour of the market where he interacted with the marketeers.

Mr Tayali told ZNBC news in Kitwe that it is sad that false stories are being spread that Mr Mwamba assaulted a marketeer.

On Thursday, UPND Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba and former Matero MP MILES SAMPA were forcibly chased out of Chisokone market in Kitwe by irate marketeers after they attempted to address the traders.

During the confusion Francis Musonda a trader at the market alleged that Mr Mwamba, popularly known as GBM slapped him.

Meanwhile, there was confusion at Moba hotel in Kitwe on Friday when members of the United Party for National Development-UPND blocked police officers from issuing a call out to party Vice president Geoffrey Mwamba.

The UPND members stopped the police officers from meeting Mr Mwamba who has been issued with a call out over the alleged assault on a trader at Chisokone Market on Thursday.

The UPND members blocked the officers at the lobby of the hotel before escorting them out of the premises.

The cadres were led by former Lubansenshi Member of Parliament Patrick Mucheleka who was visibly angry.

The UPND was scheduled to hold a press briefing at the hotel, when the police officers arrived with the call out.

  1. But you know that GBM is a GBV criminal that deserves a restraining order on women. How do you leave him loose? As that Webster Mwenso’s daughter (Wife) he uncontrollably absuses.

    • Police should stop restraining themselves dangerously. Finally start using TASERs on these hired thugs. Freez them all and get the job done to enforce law and order.

    • I feel very embarrassed by our Media especially our own ZNBC, They fail to stand and show interesting Incidences that people are missing from all angles. Especially from the Opposition side.

      To watch the true Political situation in Zambia People should also watch MUVI TV. Even if these guys are criticized at list the content is real and very interesting than the 80%Edited ZNBC.
      Enjoy wisely

  5. As we said before HH is getting himself in a pickle with these PF rejects. I wonder why he would even consider having people from the opposition party. They have no education yet HH speaks of having an educated nation. Most of them are thieves, lack a simple grade 12 certificate and some, known as crooks. HH remember: “Birds of a feather: flock together.” These thugs are dragging you in the mud. They are failures with nothing to bring to the table. Now PF will use this against you when this GBM crack head came from PF. I feel sorry for his wife and she will probably be his punching bag when getting rid of these frustrations in the media.

  7. Senior citizen is a cadre employee based at the zambia embassy in USA. He supported Rupiah against PF, when PF won he went mute together with MMD Bootlicker after sometime he suddenly started supporting PF. So this is the kind of people we have who switch political parties like dippers. Senior Citizen is just a hungry cadre who is just like other zambians who can write good English with bombastic words but with nothing really to show.

  10. PF is a party borne of thugs. Sata was the biggest chamba smoking corrupt thug ever.

    ECL the convicted fraudstar is taking opposition intimidation further, he hides behind a church yet instructs his thugs to perpetuate violence and intimidation against the opposition.

    ECL is a fraudstar, a convicted fraudstar, if he wanted free and fare campaigning he just has to issue instructions.
    But this fraudstar in state house thought after spending $10 billion our money his spontaneous dancing will automatically put him in state house.

    The Zambian people have refused to be poor beggars despite our wealth under PF.

    Country men and women, brothers and sisters,
    Come August you shall be free from this corrupt tyrany called PF.

  15. Great Father of glory, pure Father of light, in Jesus’ name, make all anti-breakthrough designs against HH be shattered to irreparable pieces, in the name of Jesus. I command open disgrace on the mask of the enemy. I paralyze all evil legs, eyes, mouth roaming and frothing about for HH’s sake. I trample upon every enemy, serpent and scorpion of HH’s advancement and promotion. I break every evil collective unity, confederacy organized against HH , in the name of Jesus. Let all evil counselors against HH follow the wrong programme. God of my Lord Jesus Christ, my Father of Glory, let the backbone of the stubborn pursuer and strongman break. I destabilize the evil strongman and controller of Zambia. Let the fire of disgrace fall upon demonic prophets assigned against HH. No dark…

    • Immortal, invisible, God only wise, let the fire of disgrace fall upon demonic prophets assigned against HH. No dark meeting held against HH’s behalf shall prosper. God, my Father and my Lord Jesus Christ , I reject every satanic re-arrangement of HH’s destiny. Every power contending with HH’s divine destiny, scatter unto desolation. Every local charm burnt against HH, be roasted into impotency. Every stronghold of failure, be broken, in Jesus’ name. Anything planted in HH by enemies, come out with all your roots, in the name of Jesus. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Are these not the same people who said they would as PF reverse the so called failings of RB ‘within 90 days?”….As for Sampa he is a known lair… when his uncle was ailing and about to die he posted pictures posing with him on the challenger saying all is well…who has forgotten how Muhabi made him look silly in an interview until he admitted that ’90 days’ was politics and now he can say he is shocked at the poor miners….awe no second chance for these thugs

    PF kaponyas, be careful don’t embarrass your selves too much, like how some known bloggers were screaming, jumping and shouting on the above lies by PF only to find it was all lies and now you look like foo.ls.

    UPND have footage of these visits and if there was any truth in the assault ZAF, ZNS the police and the army would have been sent by lungu to flash out and arrest GBM.

How fair is it you can allow bloggers with user names such as called “buck teeth lungu, lutuku presdo” to post people who outrightly insult a sitting. Head of state and then you dissallow some of our comments where we the ProPF bloggers only answer back to their lies with valid points which they fail to answer back to without insults. Be fair, some of our points have made Lsk Times to become more read by bloggers and yet you continue to be biased. Please change your ways.

      If this was true that GBM assaulted a marketeer, we would be seeing ZAF jets looking for GBM.

      In bweengwa desperate PF told us they sent commandos to rescue kidnapped PF officials as the story goes. All along the dramatic rescue was armature lies.

      PF know full well this is lies and the footage is there.

The wife will not talk because she has to protect her marriage. This guy is simply a rude , ill mannered and dangerously dull for our democracy. The neighbors who have lived near this guy (GBM) will tell you of stories of slappings. Ask those who lived in Avondale near where this moron lived. I mean Gardenia street.

  28. ZNBC and Kambwili should have carried out investigations to get the facts right. Chisokone Marketers refused of having seen the act until he left the market. PF carders only came in the market in about 30 minutes after GBM and group had left, after which they started harassing the council officers for allowing GBM in the Market. Ubufi tebusuma bane. Echo ichalo chashalila kunuma pantu tusuminisha nefyabupuba.
