GBM taking Oath
GBM

UPND Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba has travelled to India for specialist treatment on his knee.

A member of the UPND legal team who preferred to remain anonymous told Journalists in Lusaka that Mr Mwamba flew out of the country last week.

The source said Mr Mwamba was expected to undergo surgery on his knee which should keep him in India for at least two weeks.

Rumours have surfaced on the whereabouts of the UPND strongman after he missed party leader Hakainde Hichilema’s two recent court appearances in the case he is facing treason.

He was missed his own court case last week in a matter in which he has been charged with threatening violence after he allegedly threatened to go after President Edgar Lungu’s throat.

Some PF sympathizers have been spreading rumours that Mr Mwamba has fled to Mauritius fearing arrest abandoning Mr Hichilema at a critical time.

But the source said Mr Mwamba will soon be returning back home after surgery.

“All I can tell you is that he has travelled to India on a medical trip on his knee. We might require surgery there. His family has requested that we allow them some privacy as you know medical issues are very private,” the source said.

    • get well soon, true Zambian patriot. Your nation still needs you. You have chosen national unity over tribe; you have created hundred of jobs in our country; and you continue to fearlessly voice out against poor governance.

    • Knee problems? My foot! How can you leave our president in jail and you are traveling around? I think we made a mistake putting you as VP of our beloved party. Take this as official warning that we do not like this mannerism. If you are absent by tomorrow’s court case then count yourself out. We are serious.

      What is Nevers Mumba busy engineering or laboratorying?
      Okay honestly speaking, is it a loss if GBM (the arson mastermind) comes back as cargo? Just curious here, no malicious intent.
      Otherwise, let him survive, we need him beaten again come 2021.
      Enemies of progress! Merchants of Death!

    • Ba Sebenza I totally agree with your sentiments. I once broke my ankle and I was 90kgs. Doctor ordered loss of weight if my leg was to heal properly. I lost 25 kgs to 65 kgs and I have a near perfect ankle despite the surgery.
      GBM simply needs to lose weight! His ailment is self inflicted.

  3. As usual idle minds are discussing GBM. Find a small holding, do tomatoes, impwa and other stuff. Wake up now. PF has failed, they wont feed you, make a plan B. UPND is not tested yet, and may not be trusted, Don’t follow economic refugees like Mushota

  4. Hopefully the UPND clowns have now realized who is charge of our great country! When you push your luck too far, even a goat bites. President Lungu was duly and constitutionally elected on 11 August 2016 by the majority , 0ver 50%+1 mark, and to see the behavior of HH and his supporters trying to fool themselves as a consolation of their sustained defeats beats us.
    The case HH is facing is very serious by any standard and let UPND start looking for alternatives, HH is a criminal of the highest order, TREASON!

  5. Fat Albert can’t afford treatment in India. He’s broke he mistakenly diverted all his finances in the united Ponio Nio Dogs Campaigns. Hoping he would be reimbursed with Contracts and a hefty payback by Blood Thirsty Egocentric Satanist in April when he was promised to be Inaugurated as President.

  6. A knee problem is what has taken him to India? Even if he gets the specialist treatment he has gone to seek, as long as he does not shed of that weight the knee problem will recur. The massive weight he carries is putting pressure on his knee, that is what any doctor is likely to tell him whether in India of Zambia.As they say, prevention is better than cure. A healthy lifestyle is cheaper than drastic surgery. Let GBM learn to take better care of himself with the money he has. Ukukwata indalama techilyelyelye iyo!!!

    your comments are all about tribal attacks and may God give you grace to find ways of contributing to the nation. Your comments nowadays sounds inhuman and pleasant and no wonder many have said that though you are a PF guy, your comments sound Antichrist may be you are an urgent of the devil.

      I have always respected you, yours is the kind like me that has stood the taste of time.

      HH has caused the instability of peace because of miscalculated and unthoughtful decisions.

      I am afraid, I hope he remains incarcerated, be it not what you want to hear from me.

      Now you are talking SH,IT!! Why didn’t your fake Doctors, Professor Mulla or Professor Krikor, treat Rupiah Banda’s knee problem only for Rupiah to spend 2 months in South Africa at the expense of Tax Payers!
      And Unlike Rupiah, why shouldn’t GBM who is using his own hard earned money get the best treatment wherever he wants in the world? Moreover, successful treatment does NOT only depend on the skills of Doctors like Mulla or Krikor but mainly Hospital equipment and Lungu has NOT brought that equipment to Lusaka. Do you get that Ar.sewhore?

    HH lying about attempt on his life – GBM

    Reacting to Mr Hichilema’s disclosure at a media briefing in Lusaka yesterday, Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba has since appealed to Zambians to ignore such seditious information, saying people should instead preach messages of unity and love.

    Knee surgery in India? That is strange, the best knee surgeons are in Europe, ask Ruud van Nisteroy.

    And now who is acting president of UPNDonkeys given the shortage of courageous men and women in the “opposition party”?

  20. Is the whole purpose of the LT a place to exhibit xenophobia by the likes of Mushota? The hatred she has for Tonga speaking people of Zambia is beyond belief. I think this site needs to be referred to the press complaints commission if one exists in Zambia. We use this site to stay abreast of the current issues affecting Zambia only to be confronted with the bile and vile from one Mushota. Is it the whole purpose of this site? We all are capable of turning the airwaves bluer than blue that we can promise you. Mushota would even wish her mother did pop her at all. Trust me.

    During struggles like this one, you don’t all have to be in the country. Go and refresh your mind like Mmembe did. Make sure you check how to ma businesses are doing and also pass through South Africa on your way back. The likes of Thabo Mbeki where camped in Zambia organizing something while Mandela was in jail. That is how freedom fighters do it.

    Same as “Her Majesty’s Government” which will be called “His Majesty’s Government” when a male takes over as King. No need to lose sleep over terminologies or become a comedian in court, you have a more important problem locked up in a Lusaka prison.
