Katele tells Rupiah not to interfere in MMD presidential race
Opposition Movement for Multiparty Democracy MMD former national secretary Dr. Katele Kalumba has pleaded with former president Rupiah Banda not to interfere in the election process of the new party president.
Dr. Kalumba says it is important this time around for party members to allow for a democratic process in electing next MMD president.
He says suspicions that president Banda is siding with a named candidate are derailing the party’s democratic process.
Dr. Kalumba says some members are already frustrated with the back-door process the MMD is using to elect the new president.
He says for once, the MMD members should be allowed to elect a leader who will carry forward the vision and aspirations of the party.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with QFM radio, Dr. Kalumba said the MMD should forget about bouncing back to power if a back-door system is used to elect the party president.
