It was a mistake for Hakainde Hichilema to make Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM)-an insulting and violent person with a propensity to battering anyone who does not agree with him, including his wife, says Non-Governmental Organisation Coordinating Council (NGOCC) Chairperson Sarah Longwe-his running mate.

Ms Longwe said GBM’s personal character was a danger which the country could not risk taking.

Speaking in an interview Ms Longwe said Mr. Mwamba should never be allowed to take up any leadership position in Zambia.

She said Mr. Mwamba was one person who would never change from his violent behaviour.

“We have said it over and over again that GBM is a batterer who can’t lead the country because he’s a threat to women, and anyone who crosses his path.”

“He has apologised several times but even the apology is questionable, because how many times has he apologised to his wife after he’s beaten her? He does it over and over again,” she said.

And Ms Longwe has reiterated the need to support women vying for various positions in next month’s general elections.

Ms. Longwe said that the women’s movement had initiated various campaigns strategies for all female candidates in the elections.

She observed that women were good leaders and would contribute massively to the development of the country if given a chance.

“We are supporting women who are participating in the elections at all levels. So far, we have issued posters and stickers which we are giving to various people. We also go in communities to encourage people to vote and support women,” Ms. Longwe said.

Meanwhile, Ms. Longwe has expressed sadness on the low number of women participating in this year’s general elections.

She said despite efforts to increase the number of women participation in elections, the number had remained marginally low.

“We are very unhappy that there are very few women participating in this year’s general elections. The percentages are alarming and this is before the election.

“So far the female Members of Parliament that have been nominated are 106, out of 661 which is 6 percent, for the ward councillors its only 415 which is 9 percent out of 4566 and for mayors its only 11 percent, only 40 women have been nominated out of 331. We are very disappointed,” she said.

    How come you are silent about presence of CONVICTED RAPIST of MINOR sharing platform with CONVICTED EMBEZZLER?

    • That is a public manifest of dangerous incompetency driven by immaturity, impulsiveness, desperation, and lack of informed decision making leadership. Its synonymous with messianic thinking amateur in-chief politicians. As far as Hichilema is concerned, he has made a wises and safest decision in a chauvinist. He believes that to be GBV Chief, is honorable and deserving to be executive leadership of our national state. That is spitting right in the face of girl child whom he expect to vote them in.

      WHEN GBM WAS APPOINTED BY HIS CONFUSED PRESIDENT AS RUNNING MATE WE NEVER HEAD UTUNTEMBA -NGOs ASKING HH TO WITHDRAW HIS APPOINTMENT. ALL THESE WE ARE HEARING TODAY ARE BECAUSE CONGO HAS CONVICTED AND JAILED KOFI OLOMIDE. IN FACT IT WAS ECL AND PF WHO HAS BEEN COMPLAINING ON BEHALF OF MOSTLY WOMEN, OTHER PEOPLE IN GENERAL. MWILABEPO BUFI BA NGOs.

    • The light at the end of the tunnel is quickly fading off for HH. We knew this will happen. It took a little longer, but it has now happened. No right thinking person can vote for HH knowing GBM may end up being our president. Let us all stop GBV by giving Lungu and Bo Inonge our votes. Let us do it for our children.

      What it means PARDONED by another CONVICTED?
      And after been PARDONED after serving less than 1/3 of sentence, he was appointed by CONVICTED EMBEZZLER to be “AMBASSADOR” against GBV???
      Please, stop insulting human intelligence. If you are condoning RAPE of a MINOR, you are the same scum as the CONVICTED RAPIST.

WHERE WAS THIS WOMAN WHEN KANENE ASSAULTED MANY TIMES ONE OF HIS WIVES, WHEN A WOMAN WAS STRIPPED NAKED, WHEN A WOMAN WAS SHORT, WHEN THE POLICE REFUSED TO GIVE A MEDICAL REPORT TO ALLOW A KASAMA WOMAN WHO WAS BATTERED BY POLICE FOR SUPPORTING UPND GO O THE HOSPITAL. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE NGOS HAVE ALSO BEEN TURNED TO PF CADRES.

    • Sarah Longwe, you are now demonstrating how UN-USEFUL your “kantemba”NGO is to Society – IF YOU FEEL VERY STRONGLY ABOUT HARM TO WOMEN, go ONE TO ONE WITH CHAGWA challenge him on the following, as COMMANDER IN CHIEF, he just has to crack his famous BIG WHIP to bring justice to the following:

      1] Has he reimbursed the poor widow whom he embezzled, NOW THAT HE IS A MILLIONAIRE ON THE BACK OF ZAMBIAN TAX PAYERS????
      2] The young girl who was stripped naked by thugs from a party whom we all know, anyone apprehended???
      3] The kapokola who SHOT Mapenzi, making her son an orphan, & whose ORDERS THAT Kapokola was following??
      4] The kapokola who through a teargas canister almost killing GBM’s sister, due to her asthma,anyone apprehended????

      Before you complain about GBM, yes he was…

    • … yes he was cautioned by police if I remember well, but case was withdrawn, public prosecutor didn’t push it – on those grounds, HH has felt it prudent to ask him to be running mate.

      IF YOU COME BACK WITH SOME CONCRETE ANSWERS, you might just be able to redeem your NGO, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, may NOT REDEEM your PERSONAL CREDIBILITY – just join “Lungu’s so-called “Christians!!”

      Vote WISELY 11/8/2016!! Vote ZAMBIA FORWARD!! VOTE UPND!!

    • You cant do a Koffi Olomide on GBM. In reverse, we’ll do a koffi olomide on PF. Majority of voters are wife beaters, its common in zambia. Im sure each one of us has wife beater in there family. GBM is a hero in the world of kaponyas. Infact HH will get more votes than he did before because of PF failing the people and GBM’s muscle.

  2. We know it was a big mistake to use GBM. But mistake was not because he fights with wife, whom he loves.
    Mistake was that Edith Nawakwi, the only work under HH.
    Now Nawakwi want to go and chess Bo Inonge and become Vice to the losing Edgar.
    Vice-president is not immortal, GBM will be replaced in no time. What we want is to win elections in 1st round.

    • Longwe is a PF supporter who had nothing to say when GBM was battering his wife as a Minister in PF. Now she is finding a good reason to dig at UPND. She should be transparent enough to say that she is voting for her tribal mates in PF.

    • I hope GBM reads these messages about being replaced in NO TIME! We knew from the beginning that Kalusa is simply using GBV for tribe balancing while he has no confidence in GBV and will either have him eliminated or impeach GBV after winning elections or just outright take a bill to parliament so that he replaces GBV once he has won the elections.
      Everybody beware of the looming doomsday if UPND by some miracle won!

  4. these women movements are so annoying on their selective responses to women issues! a woman is shot dead in Chawama…they are quiet A woman is undressed naked in Lusaka they are quiet….. “Therapist” is rapping in front of the Republican President as he campaigns they are watching….. since women are encouraged by women to go and vote for women I am also going to encourage men to vote for men candidates also that there is 50~50 gender balance

    • @Careless Whisper, comment right on! You only spoiled it with the 50-50 whatever. All Zambians, regardless of gender, should be encouraged to participate in electing the people who will running the country as well as participate as candidates. As for these frustrated selective women, we all know which side of their bread is buttered.

  5. Coming from Sara Longwe, the Women Movement Chief Hater of PF and Edgar Lungu, is really a huge blow to HH’s leadership skills and decision making. Even his supporters like Sara feel late down on Under 5’s desperation for Plot 1. It is clear she is definitely not voting for the HH-GBV ticket, oh sorry I meant to write HH GBM ticket

    • HH should have known the negative reaction to appointing GBM. I think he might have even been advised by his people but chose to ignore them. Also, the most annoying thing, is that all his interviews on radio and other fora, no one has bothered to bring up the GBM violence issue. He needs to explain his thinking behind this appointment.

  6. When GBM was in PF no one condemned his actions when he beat Chama. Citizens condemn the act before these women groups did anything. In fact the women lobby welcomed the rapists pardon singing praises to Lungu. In the rapist’s case the one who defiled a child later battering two women to a pulp shortly after his release, is now the GBV ambassador pardoned and endorsed by Lungu to even the UN question this act. Tasila Lungu was headline news with the rapist so which person is more at fault here. Most have never agreed on HH picking GBM but if that was his strategy to win the elections its better than beating, killing, brutalizing innocent women and children to throwing people in jail to remain in power.

  7. Sara Longwe says that “GBM should not be allowed to take up any leadership position in the country”. How can this be achieved? It is by not voting for HH. For if you do not vote for HH, then you will not allow GBM to be the country’s Vice-President. It is as simple as that.

  8. Who is this Sara Longwe? Is she HH or ECL or EN supporter? As human beings we all make mistakes and GBM has made mistakes in his life. Given a choice I would rather vote for a wife beater than a thief and murderer. Lungu’s hands are dripping with Mapenzi Chibulo’s blood and within 18 months in Office Lungu has stolen K23.7million tax payers money. We will vote for HH,GBM and UPND. Its a done deal.

      When Longwe was a young secondary school teacher the government refused to grant her maternity leave. This violated the government’s obligation under an International Labor Organization convention. Longwe formed a lobbying group that succeeded in forcing the government to introduce maternity leave for teachers in 1974.[3] In another run-in during her career as a teacher, she…

FEMNET, which was established in 1988, has the goal of assisting NGOs to contribute to women’s development, equality and rights, and to provide an infrastructure for information and empowerment.[3]

      In 1998 Longwe said that the school system contributes to women’s subordination, so lack of schooling should not be seen as a cause for the low socio-economic status of women.[10] Longwe has been…

  14. On top of that, UPND would be a very corrupt government. HH, GBM, Bob Schinga are proven tenderpreneurs, getting rich through government tenders, not engenuity. They are getting money for campaigns in exchange for government contracts if they won. GBM was the most corrupt minister in Sata’s government, records are there, just search the Post newspaper and Zambian watchdog archives. Bob Schinga was reported to the anti corruption for fertiliser corruption by no other than Hakainde Hichilema, search on the Internet for the letter as reported by the watchdog. UPND is not the change Zambian should fall for, even if PF has issues. Leave PF in office for now and assemble a proper team to take over in 2021. For now PF is a better devil than the worst devil UPND. I am voting PF for now.

I HAVE HEARD THE 10 POINTS OF UPND WHICH ARE ALSO GOOD IF UPND CAN BE COMMITTED TO THEM. THE PF HAS STARTED SOME PROJECTS WHICH I THINK ARE GOOD. THESE NEED TO BE ALLOWED TO BE COMPLETED. WE HAVE ISSUES WITH COMMODITY PRICES. SOME OF THEM DUE TO GLOBAL PROBLEMS BUT OTHERS ARE SELF-INFLICTED. CAN THE UPND DO ANY BETTER OR EVEN MAKE THINGS WORSE? I DONT KNOW.

Your question “SHOULD WE GAMBLE AND PUT THEM IN POWER? My answer is NO don’t even think about it. You shouldn’t vote cautiously, but with confidence because as you have said it yourself the PF’s projects ought to be completed. You say the UPND’s 10 point plan is good and i say it is nothing but a skeleton of the huge PF manifesto.

The UPND T0ngas in Southern province dont have a slightest clue of how dangerous this GBM they are suddenly banking on is, soon and very soon, they will know how violent the man is. Two things have already been planned by GBM in UPND:
    1. Upon their defeat on 11 August, he will immediately call for change of leadership change in UPND and stand as an alternative leader.
    2. He will claim that he has spent so much money on the campaigns and the only way to recoup it is by leading UPND which apparently has already been taken over by him and the cartel. If you have realised by now, Miles Sampa’s UDF is dead and buried and so the only platform these shameless crooks can be heard…

    Miles Sampa’s UDF is dead and buried and so the only platform these shameless crooks can be heard from is by hijacking an already existing party, in this case UPND.
    So, the desperation and incompetency that HH showed the country by choosing GBM as running mate is haunting him and killed.
    UPND have since realised that their support is still in Southern province the registered voters in that part of Zambia cannot and will not make them win a General elections MORE SO UNDER THE 50%+1 new constitution requirement hence the threats of violence when ECL and PF are declared winners.

  26. @ Now and Then, this is not “someone ‘s past” GBM has been reported as insulting and threatening to beat up his campaign managers in northern and muchinga province and anyone who crosses his path including senior Police officers like Mr Kapeso. This is not his past it is his way of life and true he should not be allowed to come near State house. That’s why for me and my house hold we are voting ECL and Bo Ma Inonge Wina on 11th August 2016…….#ECL.

    • That is what GBV says to his wife before he clobbers her one! He is so violent that he has on a number of occasions put his wife in hospital. What would be disreputable is to have a vice president who actually killed his wife whilst in office.

All marks of selfishness to get to State House at any cost to Zambia. God forbid!

    • My dear it is not about PF, they wanted to pass it through parliament but PF realized that its too late Parliament is closed. What would have happened is that ECZ, appointed by Lungusha, would have had no time to bring the so called referendum to the people at voteni. All what we have seen in the past was only selected people to seat and make decision then throw it in parliament and eventualy pass a ruling.
      Since when in Zambian record did we had a yes/no referendum where all Zambians were involved? See the symbols and this means a lot to me.
      COMING TO GBM, BA PF NAMUFILWA AND YOU ARE AFRAID THAT WHEN UPND COMES IN LEADERSHIP, MOST PF LEADERS WILL BE ARRESTED FOR THEIR MANY WRONGS.

    • Better the devil you know than GBV. If HH wanted to retain his moral high ground he should not have chosen GBV as his running mate period. Not only is GBV a violent thug, there many questions surrounding his business dealings when he was defence minister. HH should be more discerning with the company he keeps and not be so desperate to state house because if you sleep with dogs you will get fleas. Unfortunately for HH, his mouthpiece the Watchdog have already documented the real character of GBV and that is the reason many of us will support ECL and Inonge Wina.

      That devil must never be a convicted thief, vision-less, idea-less, drunkard, hypocrite, violent, condoner of murder, a one track mind that discusses petty issues rather than critical national problems like the clown currently occupying high office. Don’t you agree? Look for a better devil if you must have it so. All GBM needs is anger management while Lungu must serve a prison sentence for thieving. When are you people going to demand and insist on quality leadership? In any case PF is out along with its drunkard leader.

  41. The Zambian women’s movement should have taken a position on HH’s appointment of a known GBV perpetrator, GBM, as running mate ealier. However, the recent case of Congo musician Koffi Olomide caught on camera furiously kicking one of his dancing queens, being deported from Kenya, being arrested in Congo DR and threatened with a long prison sentence, the ACSZ decision not allowing Koffi to perform at the Lusaka show are enough grounds on which the Zambian women’s movement is justified to revisit its stance on HH’s appointment of GBM as running mate. Whether madam Longwe has been given money or not to come up with her latest stance, as the Zambian Watchdog is trying to suggest, is beside the point. The issue is about what signal the appointment of a known GBV perpetrator as…

  42. The issue is about what signal the appointment of a known GBV perpetrator as presidential running mate sends to the entire world on Zambia’s commitment to fight GBV. The wrong signal that HH’s appointment of GBM as running mate sends to the entire world is that Zambia rewards perpetrators of GBV, with GBM being one such perpetrator. This appointment also speaks volumes about HH’s judgment, or lack of it, which which raises serious questions about HH’s political will, or lack of it, in fighting GBV and his suitability for the top Zambian job of President. For how is HH going to speak convincingly against the GBV and muster enough political will to fight the vice if he becomes President of Zambia with GBM, a known GBV perpetrator, as his Vice President?

    0

    • The issues I raise about HH’s judgement, or lack of it, and his suitability for the top Zambian job are issues that can be raised about HH’s judgment, or lack of it, and his suitability for the top Zambian job on other matters related to violence in general. We have to date not heard anything from HH about the brutalizing of an FDD female candidate in Namwala. He has remained conveniently mute because it does not affect one of his members. No wonder HH is not concerned about GBM’s violent past because the victims of GBM’s violent acts are not persons close to him. Now, do you want someone to be President of a country who will only be concerned about those close to him?

  43. #43, which nonsense, is GBM not violent and foul mouthed? He is and there is no disputing that. Bringing up other names rather than Inonge WINA IN COMPARISON to GBM’s violence and uncouth language is failure to reason at Kamau #41.
    We will not have a VEEP who is like a smoldering volcano sharing power with the president. In the event that the president dies, we Zambians cannot end up with an Idi Amin Dada type of president at any cost.
    Even my old mother was asking me what was wrong with GBM, when she read the insults he hauled at Kapeso. For this reason, HH will not be voted for in the 11th August 2016 elections.
    UPND cadres on LT may rant and insult, but most Zambians will simply not take the chance!

  45. @43 – to add to what @Mundetelele has said – In case, you don’t believe that GBM is violent and foul mouthed, he was just two days ago insulting Bonnie Kapeso, the Police Commissioner on the Northern province, calling him names and threatening to fire him immediately they took office. Really, I don’t see how anyone can defend GBM, he is a serial offender and has no shame in his behaviour. If he did, he would have stopped and started exhibiting (vice) presidential behaviour but he hasn’t.

  46. Yes Kapeso deserved the insults because he is a criminal breaking into peoples’s homes just because he was paid by Kaminamisa.

It is you who is not fit for being morally bankrupt.

    • He was appointed as Defence minister not elected to the office of the defence ministry. He was imposed on the people but this time the people will be the ones deciding. If i may ask, what did you like about GBM when he was Minister of Defence? To my knowledge he abused his office by allocating more vehicles and personnel to himself. I can only imagine how he would be carrying himself around if GOD FORBID he was to be vice president of the great republic of Zambia.

    • Exactly! I hated the fact that GBV was defence minister under Sata and my views have not changed now. With UPND you can do anything as long as you support them then all is forgiven. Remember how the Watchdog you to literally incite readers to insult Masebo by calling her all sorts of names including insulting her ‘*****’ son? As soon as she jumped ship all is forgiven. The reverse is true for RB, when he was facing corruption charges he was being persecuted to the extent that HH was supporting him in court but when he was acquitted, all of a sudden the judges were corrupt! The Watchdog are so hypocritical that they were criticising Lungu for sidelining the like of Suba whose appointment as PS they had previously criticised as an example of Sata’s abuse of power and nepotism.

It is dominated by people from Southern Province (Tongas), followed by people from Western Province (Lozis) and two Bembas (GBM and Mutale Nalumango). HH’s cabinet will be worse than Sata’s. I want him (HH) to win though so that he can face the wrath of Zambians on the issue of his UPND tribalism ; perceived or real. This “cabinet” will definitely cost UPND and HH many votes.
