President Edgar Lungu says he does not have full information about former UPND Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba rejoining the Patriotic Front.

President Lungu says as it stands he does not know anything but is yet to get full details on the matter.

Speaking to journalists upon arrival from Luapula Province on Tuesday evening, President Lungu asked whether Mr. Mwamba had resigned.

And when asked whether he has forgiven Mr. Mwamba who has asked for forgiveness for the insults he had been showering on him, President Lungu maintained that he is yet to get full details on what transpired.

And commenting on Lusaka Lawyer Kelvin Fube Bwalya’s decision to call the PF presidency, President Lungu says it is normal for anyone to contest the presidency.

Yesterday, Lusaka Lawyer Kelvin Fube Bwalya popularly known as KBF has announced his intentions to challenge President Edgar Lungu as PF Presidential candidate for the 2021 general elections.

Mr Bwalya said that the living standard for the majority of Zambians have dropped to unacceptable levels and cannot be allowed to continue.

Speaking at the Taj Pamodzi Hotel in Lusaka on Tuesday when he launched his book dubbed “Zambia Must Prosper II”, Mr. Bwalya appealed to President Edgar Lungu to pass on the mantle of party Presidency to him saying he has fought his race.

Mr Bwalya has also charged that the PF has made a lot of mistakes in the governance system which has resulted in the breakdown of the rule of law.

He further stated that the PF must admit that they have failed the Zambians especially youths who are grappling with the high unemployment levels in the country.

Mr. Bwalya also unveiled what he called a blue print to resolving the country’s social and economic challenges.

  1. See your life now GBM, you were Veep of Zambia’s biggest opposition party and now you have been reduced to people like Davies Mwila running away from you, not even Antonio Mwansa was available to meet you. You are not smart GBM, you should have just played the fool in UPND while waiting for the second highest office in the Land.
    For ECL to say he doesn’t know the details of your rejoining is an insult to the once mighty GBM.
    Sad.

    • Lungu is a hypocrite and that’s what puts me off of him. He is a typical liar. He lies as if he is lying to kids.
      So, he is saying he has no information about GBM rejoining PF? Then what sort of intelligence does he have? GBM was Lungu’s enemy #1 and a serous threat to his presidency before they parted ways, even after. So can a normal person say he has no information about GBM’s return?
      He is sickening to the guts.

    • What cheque??? Gather facts before you talk. Didn’t you see how GBM was marginalised by the tongas. You shud even thank GBM for having stayed long in the tribal party

    • These people are shameless liars and they dont care same way GBM was saying PF is beneath him to rejoin…I mean who sent soldiers to guard his house over the weekend.
      As for KBF this boy just makes noise when he is hungry like Tayali who will attend everyday of dialogue forum just to get paid…KBF will soon retreat and apologies we know his trickery.

    • ECL is clear.
      1. He is just learning about GBVM resignation from UPNDEAD and is yet to grasp what’s happening.
      2. KBF or whatever you call him too is a surprise package. He has the right to challenge ECL but obviously not in the way the later put it.
      So what is your problem, bane?

    • President does not know about such an important political development?
      What an irresponsible thug at Plot 1!

      Zambia is doomed. Failed state.

      Chinese have stopped working on all projects not being paid by the government. government owes $123 million to the Chinese contractors.

      Useless kaponya is head of state.

  3. It is very evident that GBM is not very welcome in PF, if anything judging from the lukewarm manner senior party officials are reacting to GBM`s rejoining drama.Many PF officials know GBM personally as a selfish,ambitious,ill-tongued,arrogant,treacherous and boastful man who can not rejoin PF just to remain an ordinary member.For many of them GBM is a threat to their own political ambitions.The main aim of getting GBM is to destabilise the UPND but after this GBM will be a bigger problem for the PF than for the UPND for whom his departure has provided a timely opportunity to reorganise. GBM ,because of his many friends and tribesmen in PF, will have more space to disorganise in PF than he had in the UPND where he had few friends and little influence. The PF have just transferred a black…

    • Do you remember Amos’s words?
      ‘Chanda who was drinking Savannah dry, also mocked the UPND vice president GB Mwamba.
      “Chilya chipuba chi GBM instead chibwele twise lya nacho,” Chanda said.’

    • Typical of incompetent people they did not know what they were doing by using GBM to distabilise UPND,now they realise that they bit off more than they can chew.Time to sit back and watch the never ending PF drama.For UPND the departure of GBM is a blessing just dont replace him with Kambwili,the two belong to the same whattsup group…

    • We shall depend on God because most of these people calling themselves leaders are selfish,lairs and wolves putting on sheep’s cloths.Zambia belongs to all of us and to one individual,if there’s a way in there’s always a way out no matter the matter.

    • He will be accepted just watch cause he is needed to be the pen that destroys UPND since he was inside and at the helm. But he will be used and then thrown because he was not loyal. He will be given a platform to speak and reveal secrets of UPND but no position. Just watch. He did a traitor they too will do a traitor. He will understand when they say Politics is a dirty game.

See your life now Geofrey, you were Veep of Zambia’s biggest opposition party and now you have been reduced to people like the SG running away from you, not even Antonio M was available to meet you. You are not smart Geofrey, you should have just played the fool in Hakainde while waiting for the second highest office in the Land.
    For the Great one to say he doesn’t know the details of your rejoining is an insult to the once mighty Geofrey.

  9. Miles Sampa back he also had ambitions, Bwalya Fube KBF has also got ambitions of becoming PF president. Now the arrival of GBM, yaba yankalako bad munyumba umu. ECL should serious scrutinise those around him. But this is the problem of going for third terms.

    • For the first time in a long time a USA sitting president may be challenged for the 2020 nomination. So it’s normal. Harry Kalaba should have been as courageous as KBF and challenge ECL at the convention.

  14. At least one of the younger politicians (not the recycled bootlickers) has the b.alls to challenge Lungu at the convention. It’s his Constitutional right – and please read his ‘blueprint’ on the economy before concluding whether it’s useless or he himself has no genuine clue on what he wants for the country.

    I would say the same for HH, please hold a convention for 2021, long overdue.

    Knowing the PF dunderheads and bootlickers, they will all gang up against KBF and declare that they only know one candidate – back to the UNIP days, I guess.

    • I listened to his economic plans on radio. They are all detached from reality. You can’t just say abracadabra and 500,000 are created in flush. No that can only happen in utopian environment. KK created more than 250 jobs using money from the mines over a period of time. These companies are gone and the mines are not ours. Such promises like the 90 days etc are what make politicians liars.

  15. Fube is courageous really remember Kavindele during the UNIP days. This is Zambia we are too timid to stand up and before long he will be forced to back out. Its sad but we say we are a democracy. My eyes are open if it happens I will have great respect for the President and PF Cadres. If it doesnt go through I will remember that Zambia has a history or umuyaya (eternal leadership until the people say no not a party it has never happened). Good luck ba Fube you may just overturn things and bring democracy to life by trying

  16. ECL playing the ignorance card so as not to offend the PF loyalists who never left but are still not recognised the way GBM was. Does this mean our intelligence are not telling him anything or that he never watches or listens to any news whatsoever?
