I will not respond to political matters during Easter – GBM

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Suspended United Party for National Development UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba better known as GBM has refused to comment on his suspension because it is Easter weekend.

Meanwhile, GBM said he he will hold a press conference on Tuesday to inform the nation on his next move, adding that it was insensitive of the UPND to be issuing “irritating” political statements during Easter.

“I can’t be issuing political statements during this period. I am a strong Christian. I will respond to those issues after Easter,” GBM said.

The UPND National Management Committee (NMC) met on Good Friday and suspended GBM for allegedly issuing derogatory statements against the party and forming parallel structures.

At a meeting, the NMC, through a secret ballot, voted overwhelmingly by 75 votes to 0 to suspend GBM.
