GBM Denies Rift with UPND and HH
Vice President of the UPND, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has strongly denied rumours he has fallen out with the Hakainde Hichilema.
Online reports had suggested he was being offered K50 Million to re-join the PF. However, during a join press conference with Mr Hichilema, GBM stated the reports are categorially untrue.
“There has not been any differences as peddled by enemies of the our party and progress, both within and outside. I am still enjoying a wonderful relationship with my brother President Hakainde Hichilema and our great party, the UPND,” Mr Mwamba said.
“When I made that decision to support the ideals of HH and the UPND, I did it with all my conscience and faculties intact and nothing has changed and need I emphasise here, I cannot be bought by a bunch of crooks as I believe in earning my keep through hard work and legal means and not handouts. I give, not take. I came into politics already successful and so unlike others I am able to say I am incorruptible,” he said.
“For 6 to 8 years the PF have tried to break me financially but to no avail and soon and very soon they will be history, surely what sane person would blatantly aboard a sinking boat, when come next elections we will be forming Government, to emancipate our citizens from the suffering they are going through currently by this uncaring bunch of clueless thieving individuals.”
The two leaders used the opportunity to encourage UPND party members across the country to remain united and focus on mobilisation. Mr Hichilema noted that the country is looking to the UPND to provide social and economic development and he will not let them down.
