Police warn and caution Nevers Mumba for defaming President Sata
MMD President Nevers Mumba has been warned and cautioned for allegedly defaming republican President Michael Sata.
Dr. Mumba who appeared for questioning at Woodlands Police Station in the company of his wife Florence, several party MPs, party officials and his lawyers was interrogated for over 30 minutes.
And Dr Mumba told Journalists later that he will not be intimidated by schemes to arrest him by President Sata using the police.
“Let me make it clear that insulting is not in my nature. I’m a Pastor, I don’t even remember when I last insulted anyone but I will come out whenever there is evil happening in this country to speak out,” Dr Mumba said.
He added; “I know it’s not right for this President to continue lying to the people of Zambia. Are we not supposed to question this government? Can’t we ask?”
“I know it’s not right for this President to continue lying to the people of Zambia. Are we not supposed to question this government? Can’t we ask?”
Dr Mumba vowed that he is ready to pay the highest price to ensure that the freedoms of Zambians are protected.
“There are ploys to assassinate me. President Sata left instruction to have Nevers arrested before leaving for New York but I want to make it clear to this government that we will not stop speaking for Zambians.”
He said it is the duty of the opposition to hold this government accountable for every lie it has told the Zambians.
He added, “It’s now two years and none of those promises President Sata made has come through, if jail and assassination plots is what he will use to intimidate, let him be my guest.”
Dr. Mumba said he is merely performing his duty as an opposition leader of providing checks and balances.
He added that for as long as the PF government fails to fulfill their 2011 campaign promises, he will continue criticizing them.
Dr. Mumba was summoned by police to appear for questioning following remarks he made on a radio program on Joy FM last week in Lusaka.
