Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba – GBM
I know you have waited for my position following the developments of yesterday and today. I wish to confirm that the uproar following my visit to the Chitimukulu Designate’s Residence Henry Sosala Kanyanta-Manga is most unfortunate. I have not commented on the stand-off between Government and the Bemba Royal Establishment because I declared interest in the matter, from inception. But this did not preclude me from visiting my family members, including the Chitimukulu Designate. As GBM, I refuse to allow political differences to separate me from who I am- a loyal member of the Bemba Royal Establishment and a free citizen of Zambia.
I was born a Mwamba and politics is something I joined along the way. I am and will always be a servant of the people. But each time I am called Mwamba, inside me something does not just acknowledge this as a historical truth about my identity; most importantly, it speaks to my whole being as a Mwamba who belongs to the Bemba Royal Establishment, Mwamba the Zambian, Mwamba the African and Mwamba, a Citizen of the World. This also means that before I am anything to anyone else, I have family obligations, such as meeting with family members, which I cannot disown under any given circumstances.
There comes a time in the life of a man when tough and principled decisions have to be made. This is that decision. I wish to confirm my resignation as Defense Minister from President Michael Sata’s Government with immediate effect. I thank him for the opportunity he gave me to serve the people of Zambia in this capacity.
God bless Zambia
It’s final, says GBM
