Muhabi backs Nevers for MMD presidency
MMD Lusaka Central losing Parliamentary candidate Muhabi Lungu has endorsed the candidature of former Zambia’s envoy to Canada Nevers Mumba as party president ahead of the extra ordinary convention on May 25th.
Mr. Lungu said as a concerned member of the former ruling party, he has put forward a five tire criterion to be used as a basis for which the party should elect its eligible candidate.
He said that Dr. Mumba has shown uncompromising courageousness of dangerous and difficulties that befall him in his career and has the capacity to appeal to the three key demographic groups on the party’s electoral map which are youth, Christian coalition and regional demographics.
He adds that of the seven aspiring candidates that have expressed interest in the MMD top job, Dr. Mumba is the most suited for the job as he meets most of the criterions of leading the party.
Mr. Lungu adds that it is imperative that the former ruling party elects a leader with the robustness to face difficulties and be brave enough to confront the aggressor.
He says immediately the MMD has a substantive president; he will become the main competitor and an automatic target for the governing Patriotic Front.
