GBM's mobile phone
I was at a Patriotic Front rally in Matero townshoship at the weekend. One of the prominent speakers was Lusaka businessman and Kasama central Member of Parliament Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba or just GBM. Mr Mwamba is a busy man. He kept receiving phone calls on his mobile gadget during the meeting. I was curious. I hoped as a billionare, which he claims, he would have one of the latest techonology on the market like say, an iPhone, iPad even a blackberry or such trends. And you cannot blame me for having such thoughts. It is what would come to anyone's mind immediately you experience such a situation.
The gadget he was using was a simple Nokia handheld with rubber strings to fasten the facility.
Broken and I thought some missing pieces were lost during one of his confrontations with either the wife or the latest imbroglio with hi brother's wife.
I also thought he was a humble man who does not want to "show-off" like some of the Lusaka boys do.
lets also not rule out the possibility of being technologically challenged because it is unbelievable that some of the biggest wig-wigs in the city are just struggling with the use of modern techonlogy such as computers and cell phones, apart from driving aitomatic cars.
