President Michael Sata is planning to frame former Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba (GBM) as a coup plotter.
Government sources say the plan has reached an advanced stage and is also being pushed by Fred Mmembe, Emmanuel Chenda, Wynter Kabimba and ailing Sylvia Masebo.
‘The idea is to divert the attention from the publicity GBM has received by painting him negatively to the public’ said sources.
‘PF Government has realized the impact of GBM’s resignation which most chiefs across the country are in support of.
The idea is, if GBM is labelled a coup plotter, he will be presented to the public as a power hungry man who is willing to stoop as low as in to put the entire country in jeopardy just to fulfil his insatiable desire.
