GBM Defends Cabinet Composition ‘The Individuals Fought Hard For The Position’

Defence minister Geofrey Mwamba aka GBM

Defence minister Geoffrey Mwamba says the appointment of the current cabinet ministers should not be mistaken for nepotism because the individuals fought hard for the positions.
Mr. Mwamba says President Michael Sata cannot look outside for people to work with in his inner circle when he has people he worked hard with to remove the MMD from power.

Mr. Mwamba says whether it is nepotism or not, the allegations being made will not change anything because the cabinet ministers are already serving in government.

He wondered were those accusing the President of practicing nepotism expect him to place the people he closely worked with while in opposition.

    The very error made by RBB. He antagonised all, but one, sectors of the Zambian society. He told them he never asked for their votes. He called them names, amambala. His eyes opened too late to the stark reality that he needed the other people to continue enjoying the spoils of being in Govt.
    What GBM confirmed is nothing new. Kapwepwe and Chiluba must be smiling in their graves; for Bemba hegmony; Bemba loading it all on all the other tribes has always been their prayer. And this is their finest hour. Yet only the Tonga and the Barotse are tribalists.

    dead frg its you who is shallow minded how do you expect someone to work with a stranger who doesn’t understand the party structure, separate ministerial positions which are political from technocratical ones people of southern province didn’t want to associate themselves with pf same with other places only a few individuals sacrificed beyond tribal lines and worked with Sata people like Lubinda, Shamenda, Chenda and few others and they have been given portifolios in govt. i will do likewise if i was in opposition then form govt through patience and hard work… keep on complaining and lets see if it will help

    Then why appoint opposition MMD MPs as deputy ministers, did they also work very hard to remove their own party from power? And you Taima, Phiri, Mukata, Masumba and all you other traitors what national service are you in government for when we have been told in black and white that all ministers are in their jobs today because of working hard to remove the MMD from power. I think I will write a book documenting all your treachery, so that your children and many other Zambians should read for many years to come how you were an obstacle to the growth of democracy in this country; how you thought only of your stomachs and not your country; how your children were educated not from your hard work like many other Zambians but from contributions from poor Zambians in the name of taxes. My shame follow you and the generations that follow you for many years to come!

    GB only confirms that PF is a tribal based party. How come that only Bembas worked had to put PF in power? You came to power through tribalism and you therefore first have to fulfill tribal promises. This very bad, that is we have dull ministers like you GBM. Even to date, its only the MMD that is truly national in character.

    what a stuupid reasoning lets just face it sata is sowing a dangerous seed of tribalism, what anoys me most is that there is nothing one can point at as a positive developmental project PF have achieved since assuming office apart from giving jobs to relatives and naming places

    EVER SINCE WHEN DID GBM BECOME THE PRESIDENT’S SPOKESPERSON? FIRST DEAD FROG IS RIGHT, WE SHALL NEVER MOVE AT A FASTER PACE IN TERMS OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, BECAUSE OF APPOINTMENTS MADE ON PATRONAGE, WITHOUT GETTING THE BEST TEAM THAT TAKES INTO CONSIDERATION EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS. THE COUNTRY IS GOING NO WHERE BECAUSE PF WILL KILL INNOVATION. FURTHER PF NEEDS TO BE SENSITIVE TO THE TRIBAL ISSUE. THOSE WHO ARE CONSCIOUS OF TRIBAL MATTER ARE OVER 40 YEARS OLD. UNTIL THIS GENERATION DIES, THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP THIS NATION TOGETHER IS TO BE SENSITIVE TO THIS VERY IMPORTANT MATTER. LET US NOT CHEAT OURSELVES AS PF.
