Running Mate GBM addressing the press conference
FILE: GBM addressing the press conference

UPND Vice President Geofrey Mwamba has vowed not to abandon incarcerated opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema.

In a statement, Mr Mwamba said he is not a political prostitute like many other politicians.

His statement comes after a series of news articles in the Daily Nation purporting that Mr Mwamba has fled Zambia and abandon Mr Hichilema.

Below is Mr Mwambwa’s full statement

 

Let them speculate, that’s their wish, I am not a political prostitute like many other politicians,

I can prove my point. I didn’t abandon Late Sata when he was at his lowest moment politically and economically, I stood by him up to the time he achieved what he wanted to be, President, even now, I ll not abandon my president H H despite His incarceration by Edgar’s P F/ M M D regime on tramped up charges,

This is a scheme they have come up with to distabilize our party which will not succeed at all.

My appeal to you all our members and supporters is to remain steadfast, focused and loyal to the president and the party as your leadership is still intact.

I m still H H’s vice and shall never abandon him, COME RAIN COME SUNSHINE.

Comrades, this is a passing phase. We shall overcome not too long from now.

Lastly, I wish to state that my loyalty is still to President H H, long live H H, long live UPND and long live the Zambian people

    • He is in UPND for presidency so he cant go anywhere. The plan is he takes over UPND as northerner and sells it to PF.

  1. Ah, so this is an old picture from the picture file. I thought GBM had come out in the open. But it looks like he is still speaking from his facebook page.

    • Zambia is going nowhere. The country is a huge bantustan and is being led by ecadres who cannot look after their family.
      Zambians have been fooled by the silly Dununa Reverse motto. Now you are all paying for it. Instead of building the nation you are fighting each other over stupid stuff like the Post News. FIGHT for UTH, Fight for SCHOOLS, Fight for JOBS, fight for a better ZAMBIA!!!

  3. No matter how GBM rants,the fact is he has abandoned HH because he has never visited GBM in jail or attended his court sessions.INDEED ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS!!GBM HAS ALREADY LOST THE LITTLE RESPECT HE HAD FROM UPND FOLLOWERS!!!
    We always advised you GBM/HH to respect those in Authority,but you have now learnt it the harsh way!HH will behave f00lishly by keeping you as his Veep because loyal members are seen and trusted in times of trouble!!!YOU AS GBM HAS BEEN HIDING SINCE 10/04/2017,THE DAYS YOUR HH HAS BEEN BEHIND BARS!!!SO WHO CAN TRUST YOU NOW?ONLY F00LS!!!

    • NJIMBU,
      YOU ARE COLLECT.
      GBM IS A COWARD.
      UPND MUST BE AWARE THAT A TRUE FRIEND CAN BE KNOWN WHEN THERE ARE PROBLEMS.
      THEY WERE TOGETHER IN MONGU DISRUPTING PRESIDENTIAL MOTORCADE AND THE MOMENT HH WAS ARRESTED,GBM HAS NEVER SEEN HIS BOSS.
      ABAUME TABABUTUKA NANGU YAZANDA.COME OUT IN THE OPEN AND VISIT YOUR FRIEND.IAM SURE YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE BETTER BEING A FORMER MINISTER OF DEFENCE AND YOU SHOULD HAVE PUMPED SENSE IN YOUR BOSS NOT TO BE RECKLESS.
      IF HH MUST BE PUNISHED. PERIOD”
      IF IT WAS A COMMON MAN LIKE ME BEHAVING LIKE THAT IN MONGU,IT SHOULD HAVE HISTORY BY NOW AND HH IS PERPETUAL LOOSER OF UPND AND HE IS NIT ABOVE THE LAW.

  4. PF/MMD regime is at it’s lowest moment. Their persecution of HH has been a PR disaster.

    It was a good distraction as they brought IMF, INCREASED Electricity fares, sold ZCCM-IH for a song to an Israeli SIDO.

    Tyranny & police brutality will never carry the day. We went through this in UNIP & MMD. We SHALL NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, Ever go back to the dark days of one party dictatorship & economic mismanagement.

    • Fuel prices were increased substantially. People complained but things have stabilized. Electricity tariffs have been increased, people are complaining, but things will stabilize. Clearly, the increases are due to removal of subsidies. Prices are going to be cost reflective – all that we should agitate for baba is accountability of the funds that will be raised. We want to see jobs being created so that many homes have an income and that there are decent incomes in homes. Reckless behavior as in the case of HH is a contributing factor to high handedness by those in power. Learn to behave.

  5. The UPND is finished Mr GBM. there is going to be a third force which will command the respect of Zambians. Not UPND. HH has a big big problem. Every one knows he lost the Elections. Even the Catholic Church which had a PVT system knows that HH lost the Elections. The only way to discipline this man is for the Catholic Church to come out in the open. Give the nation the PVT results. We followed everything on Radio Chengelo. we were not even bothered by the ECZ Results. And HE Edgar Lungu won the Elections clean. So what does HH want?

    • PERPLEXED,
      ASK UPND 100 TIMES, THEY WILL NOT PRODUCE THEIR PVT TO SHOW HOW THEY WON ELECTIONS.IT IS LIKE ASKING MILK FROM THE STONE.THEY ARE CRY BABIES.THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY EVIDENCE WHAT SO EVER TO SHOW THAT THE ELECTIONS WERE STOLEN FROM THEM.
      THE CATHOLICS WERE VERY CONSISTENT WITH THEIR PVT AND AND I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY UPND CAN NOT TRUST THE CATHOLICS WHO EVEN DID THE PVT FOR PF IN 2011 WHICH INDICATED THAT PF WON THE ELECTIONS.YOU ARE COLLECT,PF WON CLEAN.UPND SHOULD ASK OTHER OBSERVERS AND THEY WILL TELL THEM THEY THAT LOST ELECTIONS.
      THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS HH TO HAND OVER POWER TO SOME ONE ELSE AFTER LOOSING FIVE TIMES.

  6. This should not even be spoke about. It’s an obvious situation that our vice president will always support his president. A few rotten eggs in pf want to cause confusion because they know that soon hh will be released and then full force pressure will resume such that one rat will start kunyu fainting in state house

  7. Why are upnd supporters blind? How serious is fat Albert’s knee problem? Hakabwa Hakapuba has been behind bars for 32 days and not a single day have we heard the condition of fat Albert. Fat Albert destroy upnd they are stupid Tonga’s.

  8. So HH has not told the fat donkey that he has repented. The man he is pledging loyalty has betrayed him then. At an appropriate time HH will address the nation. Where will that leave you Mr Fat Donkey?

  9. By the way, just remembered. When is Donald Trump coming to rescue HH? Isn’t this the time when HH needs Trump the most?
    NEZ and Stephen Katuka, please donkeys tell us the latest, or is Trump too busy with his James Come(d)y ?

  11. I meant to say GBM has never visited HH in jail or attended his court sessions.So he has lost respect in upnd no matter how NEZ pretends here.
    As for you NEZ,nobody in PF cares or worries about GBM!!in 2016 your HH choose GBM as upnd veep in order to win the North votes.DID THAT HAPPEN?BIG NO.upnd got zero MP in Luapula,Northern and Muchinga despite GBM camping there.even GBM’s daughter Sibongile Mwamba lost in Kasama badly!PF and ECL came out number 1 in the North,hence GBM has no impact!!ASK MILES SAMPA AND MULENGA SATA WHY THEY ARE TOO QUIET TODAY!!!SO WHICH PRESSURE CAN HH&GBM GIVE ECL AND PF?NEZ,you are a dreamer!!!
    Look,Edgar Lungu is already in the history books as Zambia’s 6th president.your children in Dundumwedzi will ever learn that at school even 50 or 100 years from today…

  12. Continue…
    Even if ECL lose in 2021,nobody will delete him from history book as Zambia’s 6th president.THIS FACT MUST SINK INTO YOUR SICK HEAD NEZ!!!
    But HH may end up like late B.Y.Mwila,Anderson Mazoka,Dean Mung’omba,General Tembo,etc who died while trying to enter plot one!!!
    Nez says “PF is trying to divide upnd because they know HH will be out soon”.ARE YOU SURE?is it PF who put a gun on HH’s head to behave that bad in Mongu?NEZ LEARN TO BE REAL IN LIFE AS YOU SOUND VERY CHILDISH!!!
    Moreover,what if HH’s treason case is committed to High Court on Monday then Trials continue for a year or so,will you say the same?NEVER INSULT THE CROCODILE NEZ BEFORE YOUR HH CROSSES THE RIVER!!!

  16. What GBM meant but did not say
    1. I am still H H’s vice and I shall not abandon him as long as I am vice. Its the closest and only chance that I have come to become President of Zambia finally.
    2. I have been in three parties MMD, PF and UPND so by Zambian definition and practice I am indeed a political prostitute.
    3. I am not too clever to realise that I am not culturally correct to be accepted by the majority of UPND members. I remain a bemba monkey.

  17. @14.1 NEZ, yes I am obsessed with you because I thought that I can save you before you completely mutate into a donkey. Please answer my questions below:
    1. Is Trump still preparing to come and save HH? You will now agree that HH is a common liar thriving on gullible donkeys like you.
    2. HH has been found with a case to answer. That means that it has been established that he DID insult the police despite what you call contradictions by state witnesses and what you thought was “clever grilling” by your defence lawyers led by Keith Mweemba. Interestingly HH has offered no defence to the charge, in other words he IS admitting guilty as charged.
    3. Note the comment by LT that from initial excitement created by a noisy lawyer Keith, the court fell into hush silence when HH was put on his…

  18. …….3. Note the comment by LT that from initial excitement created by a noisy lawyer Keith, the court fell into hush silence when HH was put on his defence. That means EVERYBODY including donkeys present understood the implications, why can’t you?
    4. HH has a battery of 43 lawyers, laughable indeed, but makes a lot of sense for some of them like Martha Mushipe, who is yet to appear before a LAZ disciplinary committee to be found guilty and stripped of her licence.
