Former Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba’s dramatic entry in Parliament this afternoon momentarily disrupted debate on the floor of the house as he stole the limelight.

The Kasama central Member of Parliament who walked into the house at about 15:00 hours 30 minutes after the house was in session attracted cheers from Members of Parliament mostly from the opposition who called him by his initials GBM.

The is forced Liuwa Member of Parliament Situmbeko Musokotwane who was debating on the floor of the house to pause as the Kasama central lawmaker proceeded to take his seat on the backbench amid continuing cheers.

Some Members of Parliament could be heard referring to Mr Mwamba as ‘umwaume’.

Mr Mwamba returned to Parliament as a backbencher as the house resumed sitting today having resigned from his ministerial position as defence Minister over the impasse surrounding the recognition of Henry Kanyanta Sosala as Paramount Chief Chitimukulu by government.
