Davies Mwila resigned due to GBM’s plunder at Ministry of Defence

Former deputy defence minister, Davies Mwila, who resigned last week in a fashion not characteristic of Zambian and perhaps African corrupt politicians allegedly left his position in frustration to the high levels of plunder going on in the ministry of defence led by Defence Minister Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM).

Highly placed sources in PF have told the Watchdog that GBM, also commonly referred to as ‘tendalama shabanoko’ (it’s not your mother’s money) in the ministry has literally found a gold mine in the ministry and is plundering without sharing with his juniors such as Mr. Mwila who had to resign in frustration.

Sources say Mr. Mwila has been complaining to ailing dictator president Michael Sata to check the level of plunder in the ministry of defence but the president is seems to either be an accomplice or is completely powerless to stop GBM because he claims he wants to get back the money he put in during campaigns.

“Thats why Mr. Mwila has also been asking for promotion to run his own ministry where could possibly benefit alone but is disappointed that even in the last promotions, he was again sidelined hence his resignation. He is now frustrated with the turn of events in PF including squabbles and is on his way to his constituency to consult on the way forward,” sources said.

Highly placed sources say Mr. Mwila is also scared that he may just be a victim of arrest for national plunder under the new government when he is not benefiting as much as he should have.

    I’ve never been impressed by the claim that GBM is monied. This makes people think he already has it and has no need to steal. So the door to the chicken coop is left open…

    Will not buy into this cheap story. GBM can’t stoop so low…. But MuMmembe can!!!!

    Kabimba should be fired this week please so we move forward. I do not expect GBM to respond to this.

    Zambians, wake up from your slumber, GBM is stealing from the poor by enriching himself. How can you possibly think that he is getting back what he put in the PF campaigns, the man put in nothing more to compare with the billions of monies he is getting through abuse of office. If he is indeed a business man, let him leave the office he is holding and fairly compete with other business people out side the realm of power and we will see if he will make the money that he brags about so much. Compatriots, let us keep a close eye on this type of leadership and ensure that they don’t ascent to the highest office as I shudder to imagine what he could do in the name of getting back what he terms his investment in the party

      Join them if you can’t beat them, else you continue wallowing in extreme poverty.

      HH did the same when given to privatise those companies and can do the same if given the presidency.

      You thought MuMmembe cared about you, see what you got!!!

    When did a thief run away from a honey pot? There is more. Bembas have no ethics.

      Start with your Sata and PF.

    What GBM is doing happens every where in the world even in democratic america. Did you think when he was donating to the PF campaign he did it out of love, he has to get a return on his investment.

      In other words you are justifying corruption?Lord have mercy on you and your PF plunderers

        Forgive him for he does not know what he is doing.

    Just keep the records. We will deal with him if it is true. Somehow, I think kabimba is running out of ideas

    Genesis of Brain Malfunction (GBM).

    GBM raping the national treasury!.

    This revelation is linked to the squabbles that have locked PF. It has nothing to do with plunder but Mmembe and group are just trying mud sling GBM.

    Disgusting happenings.Why on earth should these leaders plunder public to this level.

    Since we have no better means of STOPPONG THIS ROT, we invite Bin Laden to strike Ministry of Finance and BOZ.
