The opposition UPND says the petrol bombs found at its presidential running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba’s residence during the riad by State Security were allegedly planted after the House was cleared.

Party Secretary General Stephen Katuka has said this following reports that petrol bombs were found at the Residence of Mwamba or GBM as he is famously known.

Katuka also says K345, 000 went missing from the house during the search.

The State Security around 4am on Wednesday (today) raided GBM’s House in Kasama and picked about 30 Cadres who were guarding the premises.

Below is Katuka’s statement to Zambian Eye in full:

We would like to make clear the facts concerning the raid of GBM’s house in Kasama in the early hours of this morning, during which members of his family were teargased, including small children.

The items allegedly found were only recovered once the house was cleared. We know these have been planted.

We also categorically deny the existence of petrol bombs in the residence. What they claim to have found were in fact empty bottles, as you might find in any residence.

Further, a large amount of money totaling K345,000 went missing from the house while it was being searched.

With the media under strong pressure from the PF, only a few outlets have checked the facts on the case with us. We are calling on all media houses to take note of these facts in their reporting, because they have a responsibility to make sure reports during this tense period are well informed and free from bias

  3. Petrol bombs, what for naimwe ba makaka ba PF ? Edgar Lungu and his PF minions have now desperately gone mad, with wining re-election with all means possible. What a f00lish President we have at State House. Zambia is neither Uganda nor Zimbabwe and if that is what your mentors, Museveni and Mugabe are advising you to do we mwana wa mbwa we, tawatukwanishe, walobe lyauma. What a useless president you are pretending to be humble, mwana wakwa Lesa kanshi mu mutima obe uli ngoshe, uli lusato – To hell with your evil and primitive leadership. Ndekweba ka cikala tawakaipule, leave GBM and those innocent souls alone.

    Stupid Humble President

  4. When Jesus says Yes no one can say No. They will try to persecute you but God’s Will will prevail. Do not lose your faith Brothers and Sisters. If the Police had a permit, why didn’t they conduct their search in the presence of owners of the house?

    When did it start funny politicians. No presidential or senior member of the party has ever been killed at least in my life.
    Zambia is democratic ever since Chiluba introduced it.

  9. KICKS OF A DYING HORSE.

    THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA HAVE DECIDED.

    SINCE CHILUBA INTRODUCED DEMOCRACY; NO KILLINGS LIKE THE CURRENT KILLINGS HAVE OCCURED. THE OPPOSITION AND PEOPLE WERE FREE TO SPEAK AND EXPRESS THEMSELVES.

    19 DAYS TO GO TO STOP THIS NONSENSE.

  12. Even a five year kid can tell that the story about petrol bombs at GBM’s house is fake. If UPND had some bombs, the party could never store them at any of the leaders house. As UPND we do not have intentions yet to use force and we would not like to go into state house with use of force. We wish to go into state house the same way KK, Chiluba and Sata went there and the mood is so good for us and we would not wish to spoil it. By the way why is it that PF Government is targeting its victimization on GBM alone when we have two vice presidents?. It is clear that they are doing this because he has refused to be compromised to the PF evil regime.
