Keep your dirty politics off chiefs, GBM tells off Kampyongo

 United Party for National Development(UPND) strong man Geoferey Bwalya Mwamba says incarceration has raised Hakainde Hichilema’s political∞ fortunes as the case was with late Michael Sata who was twice thrown in jail by President Levy Mwanawasa on politically motivated charges.

And Mwamba fondly refered to as GBM has urged chief Mukuni not to be intimidated by Home Affairs Minister Steven Kampyongo.

Mwamba said in a telephone conversation that Hichilema’s political profile has marched his entrepreneurship magnetism following his incarceration that has been perceived by western media as politically motivated charges.

Mwamba said even Hichilema’s ex-political confidant Michael Sata suffered the similar fate in the hands of late Mwanawasa but what those incarcerations especially the serious one of car theft did was raising his popurlarity graph.

“Actually that is not questionable because someone in the village wants to find out that ‘who is this Hichilema who has been illegally incarcerated by Edgar (President Lungu).so the profile of HH has risen. This is what also made late Sata’s polical profile to rise. When he was detained for 45 days the scenerio  raised his profile. I know the Zambian people they are very peaceful and understanding. They do not want someone who abuses his power by incarcerating innocent people.

Mwamba expressed regret that President Edgar Lungu who came on the political scene as humble as lamb is using state intustituions to suppress the voices of the opposition.

” They want to silence the opposition. Who is going to talk for the poor? They have increased Zesco tariffs, if the opposition is silence they will do anything at will and with impunity. Meali-meal prices will escalate becuse no one will be talking for the Zambian people,” he complained.

Mwamba, however, said President Lungu will not cow down the UPND into silence despite the incarceration of their leader Hichilema.

“We will continue talking for the poor and Hakainde Hichilema should know that he is innocent and he will be released and he must be released unconditionally, ” Mwamba said

Meanwhile, Mwamba says Home Affair Minister Steven Kampyongo should keep traditional leaders off  his “dirty” politics.

Reacting to Kampyongo’s remarks that his police will pounce on a certain Chief for sponsoring sabotage in a sharp reference to Chief Mukuni, Mwamba said in respect, Kampyongo should not entangle himself in thicket with Chiefs.

He said Kampyongo and his boss  President want to silence the voices of Chiefs who are vocal.

The former Kasama Central Law Maker said the two gentlemen have realised that not every here chief can be bought   with a pieces of silver so they want to silence them by giving them false charges.

“…but I appeal to chiefs, please do  not mind Kampyongo’s rantings. They just want to silence the chiefs but we are saying no to that,” he said.

Mwamba said Kampyongo and President Lungu should not think PF will be in power and there will be a time when they will account for the wrong things they are doing to the the Zambia people.

    HH is in prison because he often received advice from GBM. But GBM is free. GBM has now gone for Chief Mukuni telling him not to be intimidated. Soon it will be Chief Mukuni in Mukobeko prison and GBM will still remain free. That’s how Bembas are. I believe that HH lost elections partly because he chose a wrong vice president. I just hope he has realized this.

    Yes HH chose a wrong vice leaving long standing Nkhombo and Mweetwa because of his selfishness and great affinity for power.GBM was told that he would not go with UPND to Muchinga because that seat is a preserve for Tongas
