DEFENCE minister Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has surrendered his ministerial vehicle after the state withdrew military escort from him, sources have revealed.
But Mwamba, who refused to comment on the matter, only said he had enough vehicles to use.
The sources said Mwamba handed over his ministerial vehicle on Friday, saying he does not depend on government transport.
“It’s the withdrawal of military escort that annoyed him. He was so annoyed,” the sources said.
When asked to comment on the matter, Mwamba told the reporter to ask justice minister Wynter Kabimba and Post editor-in-chief Fred M’membe.
“Nakana ndekenifye neka, kepusheniko ba Wynter na M’membe. Nakalya mulefwaya muleshitisha newspaper pe lyashi lyandi, nakana bane. Awe mwandi nalileka naba Post (Leave me alone, you can ask Wynter and M’membe. You want to be selling the newspaper on my story. I have stopped dealing with The Post),” said Mwamba.
