President Lungu arrives with the Vice President Inonge Wina at the PF 2016-2021 manifesto at the lunch of PF Campaign in the Heroes Stadium

PATRIOTIC Front (PF) deputy chairperson for elections Kelvin Bwalya has expressed shock at United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema’s comparison of the PF and UPND running mates.

In a statement, Mr Bwalya expressed shock at Mr Hichilema’s claims made during a Press briefing on Tuesday that Vice-President Inonge Wina could not match his running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, who is known as GBM.

According to Mr Bwalya, the UPND leader was quoted as having questioned if the people could compare the two running mates.

Mr Bwalya said the PF could not compare the two for what he termed documented reasons and cited some issues of violence in which the UPND running mate had been involved in.

He said Mr Hichilema had shown that he lacked what it took to be a national leader when he attacked President Edgar Lungu over his choice of running mate.

“Of course, there are other incidents of violence that cannot be referred to because they are still in courts of law, such as threats of violence on President Lungu by Mr Hichilema’s running mate who threatened to go for the President’s throat, in derogatory reference,” he said.

Mr Bwalya further cited an incident in which Mr Mwamba had been accused of beating up a marketeer and issuing threats on Local Government Minister Stephen Kampyongo.

He said Mr Mwamba’s violent conduct was well documented in The Post when he beat up his wife, sister-in-law and workers while Ms Wina was a mother who embraced everyone.

He further accused Mr Hichilema of embracing violence through his choice of a running mate while President Lungu embraced love and unity through his choice of Ms Wina.

He added that it was sad to see a person aspiring to be a leader embracing violence.

“GBM is a documented symbol of violence. It is a fact. We are, however, happy to remind Mr Hichilema of these sad documented violent facts of his running mate any time he dares us,” he said.

  1. OF COURSE GBM IS A LOT MORE ACCOMPLISHED THAN INONGE WINA. THERE ARE VERY FEW ZAMBIANS THAT HAVE ACHIEVED AS MUCH AS GBM.

    • @Loadist you are the man.If we had 80% of the Zambian leaders thinking like you Zambia would have been very developed now the problem is the majority are shallow minded like Kelvin Bwalya,Kambwili,Frank Bwali, Mumbi the list goes on

    • If only you had respect and love of the women folks or girl child, you would have hidden your passion for male chauvinists who believe women are objects of unparalleled violence and humiliation. Where on earth do you get a conscience to adore GBV like this against a champion of women in Inonge?

    • Iwe ka Loadist, shame on you, how do you support chi Fart Albert the wife battere as accomplished. Ulichipuba sana, you guys in Zambia think when one is worth $3.3 million is a lot of money and he can buy the nation by beating women, marketeers and whoever. True, we are in a third world country, no wonder we have people like you.

    • @Loadist and Saka. You are very shallow minded fellows. GBM what ever he is called got most of his riches through stealing, I mean over invoicing govt contracts and not delivering in most cases. Remember the mealie meal supplies to the army. the Zesco polls tender, the FRA transportation he got bullishly over small transporters. the arms deals as defence minister. This chap is simply a thief and you are happy with him. You must be lunatic.

    • @Senior Citizen & Zillion: In case you are conveniently forgetting let me respectfully remind you that, Mrs Wina sat and watched unmoved while a young woman was stripped naked and assaulted during youth day celebrations. That young woman’s only crime was wearing attire for an opposition party.
      If Mrs Wina has any strength the defense of women and girl child rights is not one of them. try another one.

    • Mmmmmmm! off course. you cant compare the two. GBM, bantu sana. He has accomplished what many of us even with PhDs can only dream about. Even as a crowd puller, he only compares with HH. In Luapula, Northern, Muchinga and Copper belt HH cannot even pull such crowds GBM pulls. And those are not the ECL type of rented crowds going from rally to rally around the country in Marcopolo coaches with free beer and food and comprised of teenagers who just want to listen to top Zambian music yabene JK etc. Only an unprecedented type of rigging never seen anywhere in Africa can save your father in law Chagwa.

    • One of my happiest days as a Zambian citizen was the day Hakainde chose GBM for running mate. GBM for those of you jealousy folks who may not care to know is one of the very few Zambians whose money and assets are traceable and from pure hard work, hustling and shoving the business way just as HH. You can insult these 2 guys for whatever reason you have, but as for me, GBM and HH are my models for their sheer guts and grit and may God help them to come and lead this concept called Zambia where it seems as if getting rich is sin!
      Forward to August 11th.

    • Inonge Wina is more accomplished than GBM. She was there for our liberation from the devil’s seed. Explain how he is more accomplished than she is please. We are waiting. Having businesses is not the only measure of accomplishment. The UPND vice president, beat up his sister in law, and wife. That is just crazy accomplishment right there.

      Viva President Edith Nawakwi.

  4. Put the two together and hear who knows what he is talking about. One of them could be in diniel of facts and reality of the situation on the ground. Accept your failures, apologise and tell the people how you want to do it different. Stop talking about personalities as this only shows how petty and jealous you are. Leave me the voter to choose, don’t decide for me

  5. Inonge Wina is a woman made of steel, she exhibited outstanding qualities at the height of division in the ruling PF. Mama Inonge Wina is dependable, efficient and wise leader who could be trusted. She has a bachelor of Arts degree from University of Zambia, she served on a number of boards of non-governmental organisations and as president of the Young Women Christian Associations.

  6. its not easy to compare oranges and bananas but here is one factor that most of you have ignored, the running is a shadow position until president’s death and it is at that point we should be looking at and worrying about. If HH or ECL were to die in office, The GBM or Inonge would take top office. its a question of what happens from here that is worrisome. GBM may want to get all the riches to himself but to me this is far much a better evil than the other one. In an event that Inonge assumes power, what will happen with Barotse issue? do we see Inonge going against her kinsmen? Wont this be the point at which Zambia will split into two if not three? Lets think outside the box for once regardless of our political affiliations

    • With Inonge will be mute. Why would we want to split from Zambia? As a Nkoya it makes me happy that it is possible one of our own would lead this neglected country. She would in fact show the likes of GBM and HH true Barotse wise leadership.

      For now though Viva President Nawakwi.

  7. You deny the whole nation the chance to put on free clothes; regalia. An innocent lady was striped for such and yet you claim to embrace love and unity.
    Shameful hypocrites!

    Since when did having a different opinion become a crime in our Christian nation. Don’t tarnish the name of my father.

  8. IN TERMS OF CREDIBILITY, WHEN PF FORMED GOVT, GBM WAS APPOINTED DEFENSE MINISTER WHICH IS NUMBER 3 IN THE HIERARCHY, WHAT POSITION DID INONGE TAKE OR LET ALONE, ECL WHO WAS APPOINTED DEPUTY MINISTER? WHERE IS THE TRUST OF SATA AT THIS STAGE? I GUESS WE CAN FIND THE ANSWER SOMEWHERE HERE.

  9. Jay Jay. I totally agree with you. How I wish people could be more analytical. How I wish we could look at where we failed as a nation, accept it with apologies and then convincingly tell us how differently you want to do it unlike where one arrogantly refuse to accept the shot comings but instead choose to demonize those with different views.

  13. Inonge Wina defeated Scot Muzungu Opusa and the defectors to UPND including GBM to ensure that ECL ascends to the throne after the demise of Sata. How can you surly compare the two? There are in two different worlds. All these arguments will be put to rest after 11th August. For now UPND continue dreaming that you have already won the elections.

  14. For Gbv’s wife to have him reported at the police station im sure it was too much for her to bare. This day and age gbv thinks beating your wife is a sign of love. Not only does he beat the wife even his workers. Do we really need someone with such temperament..just because he is rich??? We have a mature able leader who is equal to the task and thats bo Inonge!!

  15. @Hawari and jay jay, GBM was appointed Minister of Defense as a settlement for monies he contributed to PF, but he lacks wisdom hence the blatant abuse of office for self enrichment with no malice. Its on record that Edgar Lungu is the only one who acted as President more than once and he was in-charge of three ministries. GBM will face a lot of challenges as the leader of the house looking at his level of education, a form 3 certificate from Mungwi Secondary School.

  16. I think he can be compared to Mama Wina. GBV is one thing they have in common because she condones it and never did a thing when a young girl was being stripped naked. GBM partakes in the activity so they have one thing in common.

  17. LUNGU IS DANGER FOR ZAMBIA. LUNGU IS NOW BECOMING A MATURE DICTATOR WHO IS OPPRESSING HIS OWN PEOPLE FOR HAVING DESCENDING VIEWS. LUNGU IS A SMOOTH CRIMINAL. THIS SATANIST AND POWER OBSESSED REPTILIAN AIMS TO CAUSE SERIOUS ANARCHY AND LAWLESSNESS SO THAT HE CAN CLING TO POWER ILLEGALLY. AS ZAMBIANS WE NEED TO STAND UP UNITED AND DISLODGE THIS DICTATOR FROM HIS SEAT. WE NEED DECENCY TO COME BACK INTO OUR COUNTRY BY VOTING OUT THIS LUNGU. LUNGU IS VERY DANGEROUS TO OUR SOCIETY. INFACT LUNGU HIMSELF WILL DIE A VERY CRUEL DEATH.

  18. Inonge Wina has good morals as compared to GBM. Its true that GBM has money but GBM behaves like a kid who is crawing. There are people with Money like Alexander Bwalya Chikwanda, Lawrence Sikutwa who behaves maturely and responsibly unlike the way GBM behaves. His reasoning leaves so much to be desired. Inonge wina is intelligent as compared to GBM who has gone very far in forging his papers, imagine going as far as a PHD Certificate. if GBM had a PHD we would have been calling him DR GBM by now. You cannot compare GBM to Inonge honestly

  22. Inonge presided over a chaotic convention in which ??? out of ??? delegated voted for ECL as Party President (by general show of hands. Wherein ECL won the PF presidency by an unknown and undocumentable percentage.

    GBM showed some level of dignity and earned respect (in my books) over the Chitimukulu saga. (Incidentally, there was a role played by ECL in the position of Minister at the time.

    • @CRANE EXACTE MUNDO!!! YOU ARE RIGHT ON POINT. THAT IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY EXAMPLES IN WHICH GBM HAS DISPLAYED HIS COURAGE. WHILE INONGE WINA AND EDGAR LUNGU WHERE COWERING WITH THIER TAILS BETWEEN THIER LEGS LIKE “NKHUKU ZA LOAN” GBM STOOD UP FOR SOSALA AND THE CHOICE OF THE BEMBA ESTABLISHMENT. INFACT WAS IT NOT HOME AFFAIRS MINISTER LUNGU THAT ORDERED THE POLICE TO SURROUND THE RESIDENCE OF SOSALA? GBM FEARS NO ONE AND HAS ALWAYS STOOD FOR THE PEOPLE. I HAVE NOTHING BAD TO SAY ABOUT INONGE WINA BUT SHE IS NOT AT GBM’S LEVEL. NO WAY NO HOW!!! OLO ONE DAY!!!!!

  24. You can’t compare a d0g (GBM) to a tigress (bo Inonge) it’s just not on!
    GBM has no reasoning capacity and that’s he just gets things by PF, just like he gas hijacked the docile UPND and its followers purely for personal gains.

  26. You can’t compare a d0g (GBM) to a tigress (bo Inonge) it’s just NOT ON! GBM has no reasoning capacity and that’s why he only gets things by P just like he has taken over the remnants of UPND and their docile followers. It’s a mafia take over of UPND and at silver plate since HH intimidated everyone in UPND from the time Mazoka died.
