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 H H despite His incarceration by Edgar’s P F/ M M D regime on tramped up charges, This is a scheme they have come up with to distabilize our party which will not succeed at all. 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. I m still H H’s vice and shall never abandon him, COME RAIN COME SUNSHINE. Comrades, this is a passing phase. We shall overcome not too long from now. Lastly, 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 The post GBM Breaks Silence, Says “Long Live HH; I Shall Never Abandon You” appeared first on Zambia Reports.

[Monitor] Maj John Ntambara and I lived in Nyamirambo near the staff houses of Banque Nationale du Rwanda. He was with Rwanda Police (but at that time, the police and the military were almost one). While he worked in Gisenyi, I was a 'petty trader' plying my business between Goma (in the DRC) and Kigali. For those not in the know, DRC's Goma and Rwanda's Gisenyi are only separated by the international border; otherwise they are one sprawling city on Lake Kivu.
