Minister of Defence Mwamba

Defence Minister Geophrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) has defended President Michael Sata’s appointments saying there is no nepotism as family members filled into public offices worked for those positions.
There has been an observation that President Sata has formed what people call ‘family forest’ by appointing relatives into public offices. Mwamba or GBM as he is commonly known is said to be Sata’s relative while the Ministry of Finance is run by his Uncle and Nephew who are Minister and Deputy respectively.
But Mwamba today (Thursday) told QFM a Lusaka private owned radio station that even if Zambians complain of President Sata’s appointments of relatives to cabinet nothing will change. He said Sata is appointing the people who ‘fought’ with him to remove the MMD.
Mr. Mwamba wondered and asked where the people complaining of nepotism today where when the PF were campaigning to get rid of the MMD. He said people can complain but President Sata will not change.
Mr. Sata when he was in opposition accused President Levy Mwanawasa of having formed a ‘family tree’ government by appointing his relatives into public positions.
