GBM returns, confers with HH in courtBy Joseph Mwenda on 8 Jun 2017
UPND vice-president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba this morning got party supporters jubilating in court when he showed up unannounced.
Mwamba has been away since the Hakainde Hichilema treason trial started on April 11.
It was reported that Mwamba was avoiding being arrested and opted to stay out of the country.
His lawyers last week informed court in the case where he is charged with proposing violence against President Edgar Lungu that he was undergoing surgery abroad and he would stay away for two months.
But the hefty businessman made a dramatic return and got all court attendees up on their feet as they jostled to shake hands with him.
This was before hearing started in the HH treason case which was expected to come up for determination on whether to refer it to the High Court for without judicial review.
UPND supporters filled up the court room as soon as the doors were open at 08:20, leaving little room for those who could squeeze in and stand.
About 20 Minutes later GBM entered in the company of Major Richard Kachingwe and several other UPND officials, causing drama in the courtroom as his supporters chanted his name.
A few minutes later, HH and his co accused also came in, creating a emotional scene as the two opposition leaders hugged across the docket barrier.
“How are you doing?” GBM asked HH who responded, “I am doing well, how did you travel?”
The two continued to chat for about 15 minutes in low voices before the treason case was called.
HH then waved at his supporters, blew some kisses at them and proceeded to confer with his lawyers
