Deliver the eight bags of fertilizer you promised – GBM challenges HH

Feature PoliticsDeliver the eight bags of fertilizer you promised – GBM challenges HH

PF aspiring candidate for the position of party president, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, has challenged President Hakainde Hichilema to honor his electoral promise of delivering eight bags of fertilizer to each farmer. Mr. Mwamba, popularly known as GBM, has also said the President must reduce the price of fertilizer as he promised during the run up to the August 12, 2021, elections.

The former Kasama Central Constituency lawmaker says, “it is disgraceful to be telling lies in the name of politics”, adding, “this erodes public confidence in politics and politicians alike”. He says Mr. Hichilema touted his farming credentials as a way of convincing the public that his promises for increased allocation of fertilizer and reduced prices of the commodity are possible.

Now, Mr. Mwamba notes, Mr. Hichilema was not telling the truth. “Clearly, the man duped the Zambian people and, on that basis, ascended the presidency. Unfortunately, anything founded on lies is fragile and never lasts long”.

The veteran politician has reminded President Hichilema that Zambia is a Christian nation and that the President himself is not just a Christian but an elder in church. For these reasons, Mr. Mwamba says the President must be an exemplary politician who is faithful to the nineth commandment that says, ‘thou shalt not lie’.

The veteran politician says the Zambian people that have been robbed of their food security through unfulfilled promises must bring pressure to bear on Mr. Hichilema so that he gets back to his electoral agenda.

Mr. Mwamba has warned Zambians not to be hoodwinked by the so-called consultative meetings the President has been holding with various sectors including farmers under the pretext of finding solutions to the country’s development challenges.

“President Hichilema is lost at sea as far as the development challenges of this country are concerned”, the former Defense Minister says, adding, “talking shops are a ploy to buy time as he hopes that he might just stumble upon some magic wand that might make him a successful President. But none of that is happening”.

  1. All the money has been spent on CDF which has indirectly rewarded cadres. Forget about fertilizer… it’s been buried with the promises.

  2. Did PF deliver more money in people’s pockets in 90 days, because for ten years there was no delivery from PF on all promises including more jobs and lower taxes. Zero

  3. I we mambala, if they delivered in October that was a great delay. Here were in December and no delivery. Stop defending just because he’s your leader. Correct him when he’s wrong.

  5. UPND is on course, there is a lot of clean up going after the exit of the fiefdom so some things will delay. Even PF was in serious delay in the previous years. So just chill, vokamba kamba full

    • What clean up… more than a year? I am sure you already have an excuse for the impending hunger in the country. Come to think of it, how come we have had surplus produce if the system was dirty.

    Forgeting that the man was implicated in dubious cults where sincerity is not in their vocabulary but telling lies is their nature .

  7. “it is disgraceful to be telling lies in the name of politics”, So says a man who told us how good HH was when he left PF. Then the same man told us how bad HH was. Isnt it indeed “disgraceful to be telling lies in the name of politics”?
