I will destroy UPND if they mess with me am a national Leader – GBM

Filed under: Breaking News |

Opposition UPND Vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) has threatened to destroy the party “if it mess up with him.”


GBM was reacting to the decision by UPND president Hakainde Hichilema to reinstate Northern province chairperson Ilunga who GBM dropped.

“I will destroy UPND throughout Zambia if they mess with me am a national Leader,” said GBM.

GBM says if he is messed up, he will not only destroy the party in Northern province but the whole country as he was a national leader.

And GBM says he is a King who always want to have authority and speak out on issues affecting the people. He says he does not want to be treated like former UPND Vice president for Politics Canisius Banda who could not exercise his authority.

GBM says the UPND leadership must know that he (GBM) has an independent mind who is not cowed by material things. He says he quit the Defence Ministerial because opting to stand what he believes in.

He also took a swipe at UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka for interfering in the Northern province leadership.

  1. If it is true, it is sad development. GBM is needed in UPND and has been loyal to the party. If GBM goes then HH should go as well. You cannot be bringing people and then you leave them out when it suits you??

  2. I agree with you Monze; that is, as you have said, ‘if this report is True.’ HH should exercise caution on how he handles his senior colleagues. If GBM leaves due to frustration that will be very damaging to the party; very very damaging.

    Tribalism aside but I mean well when I say that UPND can never be strong without the partnership of some big guns from other provinces especially Bemba land. Take care Mr President of UPND.

  3. The problem with our leaders is selfishness, for now GBM understands that UPND will stand a better chance in 2021 if kambwili was a running mate. And HH might want to frustrate him to pave way for Kambwili. I noticed because i did not see GBM in Roan.Why cant the leaders find the way of working together without the unnecessary fightings. HH and the UPND leadership should demostrate leadership by making GBM understand why and the benefits not that he is a lesser human being. in UNIP some great people paved a way for kaunda for a sake of a greater goal even the MMD days some people paved way for FTJ and Mwanawasa for a greater goal they wanted achieve. were are these people who knew that what they believed in was much important thir individual interests.
