GBM

As we go through the present tribulations of those in power and their advisors and the total disregard of the human rights, freedom of speech and the rule of law and indeed the constitution. Let us be mindful that the country is being put to a test never before experienced.

The happenings of the last few weeks have exposed a scheme where those with power wish to bring about discontent and blame it on others as the always do.

The stubbornness and lack of fair judgement will come and haunt those that have taken it upon themselves that they wield power and think they shall wield it in perpetuity.

As the saying goes “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”…But when it goes you are left lonely and isolated, and vulnerable to all sorts of retribution and answerable to all abuses that one did when in power.

One has to do the right things in accordance with the constitution and not go on an ego trip. State power is temporal and Zambia is not a monarchy. The same people urging others on will deny when things sour.

Only cowards use state institutions to fight their personal battles and institutional loyalties are temporal.

These same institutions end up standing against you and swallow you. One ends up blaming the same institutions that were used in the first place.

As things unfold, one is drawing closer to total isolation and our legal processes are proving that.

Furthermore, the Christian Council, Chiefs and well-meaning civil society organisations have correctly analysed, put their case and advise has freely been given.

It’s up to Mr. Edgar Lungu to take it or leave it. Do not take this country to levels where you will not be able to fathom or control.

It is important to do the right thing and listen to advise and to not admonish the international community whom the government continues to run to, to sort out our social and economic messes.

    • The issue sir is the Abuses of authority you have ignored comments made by Mumbi Phiri that HH will be confined and other recordings we have heard which are not short of suggesting that there has been undue influence on the decision by the Police. Simple question…tell me whats treasonable about what happened? Its the Presido to set disciplinary standards in institutions.

    • That case is a sheer waste of time by making Zambians turn their minds from more serious problems we are facing brought by PF regime. HH will be compensated heavily by us ordinary Zambians because of careless PF cadres.

    • @government: we know you are PF cadre. It is clear Lungu is a coward. He is abusing his authority to get on HH being the strongest opposition. Zambians don’t need what PF are doing, they want true leadership with a vision to change the country. Its madness and shameful that PF have made themselves seen to have no vision but attack Opposition. 2021 is around the corner. we want to see results not fights.

    • JUST IGNORE THIS FAT MAN. HE DOESN’T KNOW THE IMPLICATIONS OF LAWS AGAINST A SUSPECTED CRIMINAL. WHO IS GOING TO RELEASE A SUSPECTED CRIMINAL WITHOUT GOING THROUGH TRIAL? IT WILL BE ILLEGAL THE THE PRESIDENT TO PADON A SUSPECTED CRIMINAL WITHOUT TRIAL WHICH CONCLUDES IN JAILING THE CRIMINAL. THE FAT MAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN ADVISING HIS BOSS OBEY THE LAWS OF ZAMBIA RATHER THAN HAVING BEEN ENCOURAGING HIM TO BREAK THE LAWS AND INSULTING EVERYONE IN GOVERNMENT CIVIL SERVICE. IF FOUND INNOCENT HE WILL BE RELEASED BY THE COURTS. SO, JUST BE PATIENT, FATIE.

    • PF supporters level of dullness is amazing and amusing to say the least. How do you support a team which cannot even put a charge sheet together. HH should be released and let him enjoy his freedom.

    • I like the Zambian law.. there is law in Zambia for those who break the law. Arrest them throw away the KEY.
      Gen Kanene for president. I have been to prison, I know it all.. 2021 Vote for Gen Kanenen fight for your country
      Herod asked his people, who do you want me to release, Jesus or Barabasa? The people chose Barabasa!! Barabasa! And Jesus faced the death sentence!!
      Zambia who do you want. ZAMBIA WAKE UP,
      General Kanene is the next president of Zambia! , VIVA ZAMBIA

  2. It is indeed up to the courts to release HH if they find him with no case to answer. GBM and HH do not recognize President Lungu. So they should simply pray that the court releases HH.

    • Its not about praying but that his arrest in the first place is nonsensical. After you have seen that the Mongu incident isnt treason you start talking about dates unknown but between 10th October, 2016 and 12th April, 2017. Guys are you serious????????? This Country is for everyone. Be fair. Condemn the undue influence Amos Chanda was head giving to Kanganja and leave CEC Liquid alone, why raid a company when you dont have evidence? Who is going to be spared in all this? This isnt about HH, its about our rights and freedom. Where is Tayali, whats the update??? Why is Mwaliteta still not tried???

  3. I hope and pray as a former defense minister iwe tunka mafi in GBM you didn’t set HH up knowing what treason entails just to take over the UPND presidency after hounding out the only other UPND vice president in Dr Canissius Banda. We are not as gullible as you presume. But of course the tongas in Gary Nkombo, Jack Mwimbu are not going to let you take over Mazoka’s part that turned tribal. I miss the Big Andy Mazoka because he was not tribal. Even mwine lubemba has told you already. You are not going to run a tonga based party no matter what gimmicks you play against them because they are fanatical about their own.

    • yes i agree with you mayanda,thisis more reason why fat albert didnt show up himself at court ground to support HH coz he want to take over the UPND leadership of which he has already taken over

    • I miss Mazoka too. he was a good man, very fair and very patriotic to all Zambians. all the people that worked with him have nothing but good to say about him. may his soul rest in peace. these chaps have ruined his vision, am sure he is tossing in his grave. this is not what he envisioned. not this madness… not this tribal party. Mazoka was a man of substance. what happened to upnd?

  4. SHAME ON YOU WHO THINK H.H IS CRIMINAL ..WHAT KIND OF ZAMBIANS ARE YOU ? ITS UNBELIEVABLE PEOPLE LIKE YOU EXIST IN OUR MIDST PRETENDING TO BE CHRISTIANS.SURELY ARRESTING H.H BY DAMAGING HIS PROPERTIES DOESN’T MAKE SENSE AT ALL.MOST OF YOU MAKING NEGATIVE COMMENTS ON THE VICTIM ARE SIMPLY COWARDS WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND HUMAN RIGHTS AND PROCEDURES.

  6. HH did what because he thought it was right and President Edgar Lungu is doing what he is doing because he thinks its right so let our courts of law decide who is right.

  7. The vice president of Zambia and my brother gbm do not worry sir we have everything under control. The pf legal team are very daft and we are letting them dig their own grave. It is easy to see that the pf controlled state lawyers are dragging their fit on a case without merit because they are controlled. However they don’t care because at end of day its taxpayers money they are chewing. Greedy dogs

    • @NEZ
      Please, refer to GBM as Acting President of UPND. That is why you fail to respect President Lungu. Is it because you have no paramount chiefs in your area why you have no respect for leaders? I am reminded about what late historian and MCC Ben Kakoma said about the problem of leadership in that part of Zambia.

  8. GBM please dont worry.if President Edgar Lungu is wrong on this one,he will face the law alone once he leaves office.besides,if what you did in mongu is not bad,then the court will soon release HH.therefore,its only the court which can tell the Zambians who is wrong between president Edgar Lungu’s Govnt and HH’s team.stop ranting via media because your HH is still innocent.lets all allow the law to take its course!!CCZ,two Embassies and some NGO’s gave one sided story.if they are neutral,they should have blamed both HH for his bad behaviour in Mongu,the was he has been disturbilizing Zambia since 11/08/2016,namwala arson,the killing of a PF cadre by upnd in Kanyama recently etc,unlike simply blaming PF Govnt.if HH continued with his terror acts against the Govnt,soon Zambia was going…

  9. 1. GBM, are you not the Acting President of UPND? The incumbent is incarcerated for a long long time mr running mate. Or maybe the chuundus will not allow a monkey in maize field to lead them?
    2. GBM is missing from names of the people charged with HH, they are all chuundus, does this mean that they did not trust him of course?
    3. But I notice that GBM is toning down on his language, probably he is not sure where he stands as he has realised that things are being done behind his back clearly. Next time his language will include “His Excellency Mr Edgar Lungu” thereafter adding “President”. Watch this space, Terrible tells you.
    4. By the way GBM, tell HH that next time he should build a tunnel from that bunker ….kikikikiki. You don’t just wait to be smoked out like a rat.

  10. 5. And how irresponsible was hh to hide with a wife and son, why didn’t he send the wife and children to an auntie or the village so that he remains alone to face the TEARGAS? He clearly must have KNOWN after he hurriedly left Mongu that the law was going to RAID him like a ton of bricks for suspected criminal activity.

  14. We all agree with what GBM has said: It is plain wrong for the state to use its machinery as a tool to suppress its perceived enemies, opponents, or citizens. But let GBM be honest enough to also agree with the obvious truth that … IT’S EQUALLY WRONG FOR THE STATE’S PERCEIVED ENEMIES, OPPONENTS, OR ANY CITIZEN FOR THAT MATTER TO FRUSTRATE THE GOVERNANCE OR RUNNING OF THE STATE. So as we speak about wrongs in our society, we ought not to merely stop at condemning the ills committed by the state. We have to go as far as properly advising HH (and whoever else) on the need to respect the law. That’s how fair statements work, no biases, no bigotry. Didn’t we all learn in our childhood that what is good for the goose, is good for the gander? Zikomo.

  15. GBM’S dream world,wake up big man ,Zambia is not your milling company .it’s a nation governed by rules of law and just behave like your age and you won’t be found in such nasty situations. Come to terms with the truth, there is headship in zambia and for as long as you behave like kids you won’t have it easy.

  18. ‘It’s up to Mr. Edgar Lungu to take it or leave it. Do not take this country to levels where you will not be able to fathom or control.’ Says Fat Albert, but remember Fat Albert and HH that you pushed your luck too far. Zambia is a sovereign state and all well meaning citizens should abide by the laws of the land, failure to abide by the same would result in what has happened. Your party UPND is a danger to the nation, you always believe in violence as a way of solving problems. After elections Zambians went through unthinkable situation, the president did not react and you thought he was weak, plse you should not mistaken wisdom and humility with weakness. I thank God who gave ECL wisdom not act during the Kuomboka ceremony because innocent people could have died due to HH/UPND greed…

  21. this man hh is very powerful that the whole world have come to recoginize him as a ligitimate president . his spirit is not broken even in unforetold hardship considering how the whole case started on the night of 10th/o4/2017. he is really a man no wonder the whole court stands up when he enters the court room. god man bless your man to save the poor.

    • Blackbull, there has no politician who has saved the poor. Politicians always save their interests every where in the world. HH, ECL, MCS, RB, LPM, FTJ, KK, can not save the poor, that is why the poor are still with us.

  22. People should be calling for a fair trial instead asking Edgar to release HH. If Edgar did this it obviously mean he’s the one behind the arrest of HH. By the way as predicted one chief has said he’s not aware of that chiefs ‘ meeting and he doesn’t know how his name found itself on the list since he was outside Zambia.

  23. WHEN CHIEFS FROM OTHER REGIONS ADVICE UPND TO ACCEPT LAST YEARS ELECTIONS,THEY ARE CALLED ALL SORTS OF NAMES.
    WHEN THE CHURCH AND OTHER NGO’S THAT AGREED ECL WON ELECTIONS ADVISES UPND TO ACCEPT LAST YEAR’S ELECTIONS,THEY ARE CALLED ALL SORTS OF NAMES BY THE UPND AND HH.
    TODAY CHIEFS FROM SOUTHERN PROVINCE ARE CRYING THAT THEIR SON SHOULD BE RELEASED FROM PRISON,THEY ARE CALLED WELL MEANING CHIEFS AND CIVIL SOCIETY.
    SOME ONE BECOMES WELL MEANING TO UPND WHEN THEY SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE.
    SATA,MHSRIP WAS ARRESTED BY MWANAWASA,NO BEMBA CHIEF PARADED HIMSELF BEFORE ANY MEDIA HOUSE TO DEMAND HIS RELEASE FROM PRISON.ALL THE PF SUPPORTERS WAITED UNTIL THE COURT ACQUITTED SATA TOGETHER WITH THE BEMBA CHIEFS. NO MARKET WAS BURNT NOT EVEN ANY BUILDING FROM NORTHERN REGION.
    NOW PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA…

  24. It is really not the happenings at the Kuomboka alone that triggered the arrest but a combination of many. The people in Government have surely been tolerant but even that has its own limits. The tolerance has misled the UPND in thinking the government is weak. Such conduct as exhibited by the upnd has potential to put the poor at risk of fighting each other while the rich run away to various places of safety. Take a leaf from Me.m.be of what the rich are capable of.
