Mr. Mwamba popularly known as GBM said he had been receiving massive support and encouragement from the Constituency.
“I wish now to inform the nation and the electorate of Kasama Central that I will not be detracted by all these innuendos and that I shall be contesting the Kasama Central seat as member of parliament in the forthcoming by election on the UPND, the party that I belong to and I am vice president of, Mr. Mwamba said.
“I also wish to answer to innuendos from the Patriotic Front making rounds that I am terrified to contest for the seat, particularly that made by their Deputy secretary general Mumbi Phiri.
Let me, begin by saying that the decision by the Honourable Mr Speaker has raised a lot of questions, however, I will not dwell on that at this particular time.”
Mr. Mwamba said his decision to accept the position of Vice President for the United Party for National Development was done with a lot of soul searching and consultations.
