GBM evades police at Lusaka Magistrate Court

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba was this morning whisked away from the Lusaka Magistrate Court premises by party cadres after word went round that police were planning to arrest him.

The UPND vice-president had been away from public eye for nearly two months prompting speculation that he had fled the country in search of asylum in a foreign land.

But the man commonly known as GBM made mockery of those rumours by making a dramatic appearance at the Hakainde Hichilema treason hearing.

News Diggers! reports that after the Hichilema treason case was referred to the High Court for trial, GBM and other political party leaders went outside the courtroom to chat.

Journalists then started taking pictures of the UPND vice-president while others prepared to interview him.

However, when some police officers who were inside the courtroom started asking where GBM was, UPND cadres rushed outside and literally dragged the former defence minister away.

The cadres caused commotion as they cleared the way for GBM at the Magistrates’ Court. They then got him on to Nevers Mumba’s vehicle and sped off.
Earlier, GBM said he did not flee the country.

“Where are Richard Sakala’s journalists who were saying I ran away? How can I run away from my beautiful country? you think I can leave my wife and my party?” asked Mwamba when he made a dramatic entry into the courtroom.

  4. Is President Lungu still in charge of the State?
    If he still is, then Zambia has a raw dictator in the making and he is learning very fast.
    Mugabe must be blackmailing him to ensure he follows his prescription
    How can he allow these illegal attempts to completely destroy a legally registered political party and persecution of a political rivalry in a country declared a democracy and Goddriven?
    No, President Lungu cannot be party to all this.
    Who are the mafias controlling the president?
    Mumbi Phiri? Too shallow! Trying to support for personal benefit and a very callous woman. Enjoys humiliating rivalries.
    Father Bwalya? No. Unless he is promised huge money.
    Kaiser Zulu? Possible.
    Amos Chanda? Just wants to keep his job.
    Kamba and Lusambo? Showing gratitude to the president for the undeserved rewards.
    Davis Chama???

  8. @hijackers,its indeed Heimmler’s night of the long knives,reminds me of the Gestapo in Nazi Germany,but ultimately its the battle of good over evil,light and darkness,and we know that throughout history right up to present times the winner will always be the forces seek to uplift the persecuted and downtrodden no matter how bad or terrible conditions might become to endure, it surely comes to pass…
