UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has threatened to sue Daily Nation Newspapers Editor in Chief Richard Sakala for publishing what he termed as lies in his newspaper.

Mr Mwamba said Mr Sakala has published a story with a burner headline “GBM INSULTS BEMBA CHIEF” but that when one reads the story there is no single insult attributed to him.

He explained that the issue he raised was about a chief being used to peddle hate between Tongas and Bembas under the sponsorship of President elect Edgar Lungu.

“I find it appalling that Mr. Richard Sakala and his trash newspaper the Daily Nation have waged a war against me. In todays edition, Vol 3 Issue 1439, there is a screaming headline”GBM INSULTS BEMBA CHIEF”.

“However, when one reads the contents not even one insult is attributed to me. The issue here is about a chief being used to peddle hate between the Tongas and Bembas on sponsorship of Edgar Lungu and his minions. The purpose is to bring about a division between these tribes when none exists.The paper further castigates in their editorial of the same issue with innuendos that I am insulting and threatening my perceived enemies.

“Let me state for the record, that informing the nation on the misbehaviour of an eminent personality, like a chief, does not constitute an insult,” he said.

Mr Mwamba explained that he belongs to the Bemba Royal family and his politics has nothing to do with Bembas but the well-being of all Zambians.

“I belong to the Bemba Royal family and my engaging in politics is not for Bembas alone but for all 73 ethnic tribes of our motherland. My project is to bring all these tribes together and serve them with equity under the spirit of One Zambia One Nation. No tribe is greater than the other or more Zambian than the other,” he said.

He added “In view of the ongoing and the intransigence of one Richard Sakala and his Daily Nation newspaper, I am left with no option but to seek legal redress for the numerous malicious and scandalous articles that have been attributed to me by his paper.”

    • That “burner headline” aside, I find Richard Sakala’s recent conduct and behaviour extremely divisive. Only time will tell.

    • Why talk about taking legal actions to the masses instead of plunging and just do it.

      When someone says I will sue, you imply you are upset and have no intention of.

      Sakala is not better than GBM

      Live GBM but he doesn’t belong at the apex of any Givernment formation. Minister at most.

      Strikes me as not having a high IQ level

      Thanks

    • the failed politicians are the PF they have only won through corruption! How can you be proud to support a corrupt party! If the election results were legal and true the PF would have told the UPND to take the matter to court to prove they had won it fairly – but they have not ! They are trying to stop the court process and while they are doing that they are trying to cause anarchy in the country so that they can send the army in.
      OPEN YOUR EYES!

  3. Sakala is an ex-convict who is bitter.Now that he has a fellow easterner in power he has no choice but to be a vuvuzela for one Chagwa. He is trying to make as much money as he can and does not care at what cost so that he can recover what he lost after his time in prison.Shame.

    • Sakala didn’t even lose any money when he was in prison. He stole money when he was press aid. He is just another misguided individual fanning anarchy in the country. He is trying to mimic the post newspaper but his stories are not supported by facts and evidence.

  5. GBM thinks that insults are only the ones he uses when insulting his workers or children. The insult in this case is implied in his assumption that the Bemba chief has been used as a pawn in bringing about the factionalism. GBM has indeed insult the Bemba chieftancy by implication.

  6. GBM, your former arc enemy Mmembe’s POST NEWSPAPER is the most divisive, insulting and warmongering, but because they support you now for conveniences, they are now angels. Let me tell the you Sakala’s DAILY NATION is more balanced that the POST these days. CHEAP ZAMBIAN POLITICIANS AND CHEAP MEDIA, CRY MY BELOVED COUNTRY.

  8. In our tradition making allegations against a chief is insult enough and gbm knows this very well. Lies like alleging that Mwata Kazembe had endorsed HH and rubbished President Lungu are insulting to our Chiefs

  11. Zed can be so unintentionally comedic. Same guy stands accused of ethnically cleansing his own on some wild charge by self projecting parties. I think Metaphorical Kung Fu Kick in the Throat of ED guy is right. We need to all chill on this tribal bull droppings.

  13. WHAT DO EXPECT FROM ALL THE TABLOIDS LIKE ZNBC, NATIONAL TIMES OF ZAMBIA, AND DAILY MAIL? WHEN THEY SPEAK EVIL AGAINST UPND, IT IS GOOD NEWS BUT NOT A VERY SINGLE DAY HAVE THEY SAID GOOD ON OPPOSITION BECAUSE ALL THEY DO NOT WANT MULTIPATISM IN ZAMBIA. ALL ARE HATERS OF THE TRUTH AND THAT IS WHY THEY WILL TRY BY ALL MEANS TO REMOVE OPPOSITION.

  17. Laughable indeed, surely you mean to say that GBM has become a topic of discussion and making headlines, even “burner” headlines? Surely don’t we have anything better to read or write or do? Even sleeping or using up some tissue in the toilet is more useful than reading or talking about GBM. It would more productive to speculate about President Lungu’s new cabinet.

  18. Ba Upnd ask yourselves why all relatives of Gbm lost the election in Kasama. This included his daughter. Umusalalu towards his workers and the general public is the reason.
