Opinion: The Operation Destroy GBM

There is an active operation in the Patriotic Front government to get rid of Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba commonly known as GBM or at least destroy his character, reduce his chances and completely shatter any hopes of his silent ambition to take over the leadership of the ruling party.

Conversely, there is a strong current preparing party general secretary albeit an unpopular figure Wynter Kabimba, who is also justice minister, to take over from President Michael Sata.

That is why every time President Sata makes a trip outside Zambia, which according to sources, would include a medical review stop over to some unknown destination, competition for strong presence in the limelight from both the Kabimba and GBM camps heightens.

If GBM is not strengthening his PF constituency, he seizes every opportunity to remain in the limelight despite a hostile ruling party media machinery working against him.
