UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) Vice-President for administration Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba says the arresting of his party president Hakainde Hichilema is a political scheme meant to distabilize the party.
And Mwamba says he will not abandon Mr Hichilema even when he is incarcerated despite the speculations that he a political prostitute.
“Let them speculate, that’s their wish, I am not a political prostitute like many other politicians,” Mwamba says.
“I can prove my point. I didn’t abandon Late Sata when he was at his lowest moment politically and economically, I stood by him up to the time he achieved what he wanted to be, President, even now, I ll not abandon my President HH despite His incarceration by Edgar’s PF/MMD regime on tramped up charges.”
He says the scheme to destabilize the party will not succeed at.
“My appeal to you all our members and supporters is to remain steadfast, focused and loyal to the president and the party as your leadership is still intact,” he adds.
Mwamba also says that he is still H H’s vice and shall never abandon him.
“I am still HH’s voice and shall never abandon him, COME RAIN COME SUNSHINE. Comrades, this is a passing phase. We shall overcome not too long from now,” Mwamba says.
He has further pledged continued loyalty to the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
“I wish to state that my loyalty is still to President H H, long live H H, long live UPND and long live the Zambian people,” says Mwamba.
