United Party for National Development (UPND) vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba commonly known as GBM has been put on bed rest.

This came to light this morning when Mr Mwamba failed to appear in the Magistrates Court at Lusaka Complex in the case where he is charged with threatening violence against the Head of State Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

When the matter was called in court 4 before Senior Resident Magistrate Ms Jenpher Bwalya State Prosecutor Dennis Manda informed the court that the state was ready to proceed with trial but that the accused was not before court. He said neither the sureties for Mr Mwamba were in court.

But one of the lawyers representing Mr Mwamba Ms Martha Mushipe informed the court that her client was unwell. She presented a note to the court showing that Mr Mwamba was put on bed rest for some days.

And when contacted for a comment about the development PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya who reported Mr Mwamba to the police causing his arrest in March said he couldn’t speculate on whether Mr Mwamba was indeed unwell.

“I can’t speculate on whether GBM is telling the truth. But what I think is that his illness was sudden and it must have occurred immediately after he finished insulting President Lungu at a press briefing yesterday (Thursday) at his residence”, said Fr Bwalya.

The PF Deputy Spokesperson who was also President Lungu’s Deputy Campaign Manager in the just ended general election said Mr Mwamba’s sudden illness was God’s way to remind him that it was an abomination to insult the leader God had chosen for his people.

The matter has been adjourned to 28 September 2016 and bail for Mr Mwamba has been extended.

  1. GBM has serious matters to attend to, he is gathering and compiling evidence to show that Lungu lost the election.

    • I have 110% Respect for this Lady. I loved it when Ms Mushipe ‘BLASTED’ the ECZ last week! Zambia needs more people that will stand up for the rights of the people.

    • @1Qwela Chiti..what evidence is he compiling?The guy was in Northern Province for the greater of voting and election counting! Those with evidence who had agents at the polling stations and a reliable PVT cannot wait this long to file a petition. I watched the presidential petition in Kenya,it was done within a few days, far away from end date.These people started by saying they wanted recount in 3 constituencies (Munali,Mandevu and Kabwata). Evidence should be pretty easy to compile for 3 constituencies especially for people who knew what they were doing! Mwaliteta and others have just been charged with aggrevated robbery a case which is likely to develop into something serious when we consider that it the ECZ involved at election time when the same UPND was interfering in the process…

    • Please cite Frank Bwalya for contempt of court for commenting on court proceedings:

      “I can’t speculate on whether GBM is telling the truth. But what I think is that his illness was sudden and it must have occurred immediately after he finished insulting President Lungu at a press briefing yesterday (Thursday) at his residence”, said Fr Bwalya.

  2. This ex-father is the Devil’s advocate. How can he possibly say God is punishing GMB for insulting Lungu? Who is Lungu? Shameless thief and drunkard and yet this ka Bwalya wants to lower God to the level of Lungu’s disciple.

  4. Bwalya do not accuse God of choosing a dancing queen for us. God can’t chose a candidate without a vision for his people. A candidate who can’t face his people on national debate to tell his people what he has in store for them.

  5. This is the problem with our courts. Too too much freedoms. Cases that could have taken a day or two would take years. I wish we could be having time limits to court cases. If you take some one to court the court sets time limit it will help

  8. When did Lungu become God’s appointed? God does not deal with thieves and murderers. Lungu is a thief and has blood on his hands. Everyone gets sick including Lungu, so anyone sick well.

  9. It is disgusting to say God chose Lungu, not even the Pope claims he is chosen by God. What the F.U.C.K is this s.t.u.p.i.d.i.t.y, and who really is buying into such crap….ati God chose him, say god, maybe.

  10. Is the name ‘Fr Bwalya’ a religious title or a household name? I would want to know better so that I can understand him better. In the religious circles, I don’t find such people with ‘Fr’ title, being vulgar and haters. Planting hate in every speech or word spoken. The day will surely come. But better we know him better first.

  20. Nowadays in Zambia even an election defeat has become an illness. Martha Mushipe behaved like a headless chicken when the results started going to ELC’s favor. She thought it was a talking competition,ECZ are serious, and fair [email protected] you’ve made my day “GBM and Cholera”

  22. The free mason constitution states that “Losers must stay in control of a tribal party and petition presidential elections even when results are clear”. It also goes as far as stating that ” GBM must fake an illness when summoned to answer his insults against the head of state.” Retrieved from the Dundumwezi archives.
