UPND rally at Lusaka Magistrate Courts this morning when GBM appeared for mention on charges of unlawful drilling with 19 others.
In court before the rally, Geoffrey Mwamba pleaded not guilty to one count of unlawful drilling, unlawful training of soldiers.
Mr. Mwamba who is jointly charged with 19 UPND youths pleaded not guilty before Magistrate Mwaka Mikalile.
It is being alleged that Mr. Mwamba was involved in the training of the youths without the permission of the republican president.
Magistrate Mikalile has since set 23rd May,2016 as the date for the commencement of trial.
The matter relates to the arrest of UPND youths who were found training at a gym at Mr. Mwamba’s building situated on Luanshya road in Lusaka, where offensive weapons were also recovered.
This followed President Edgar Lungu’s wild claims that the UPND was training a militia group for purpose of causing anarchy should the opposition party lose the August 11 elections.
