Share

Movement for Multi Party Democracy Kafulafuta Member of Parliament George Mpombo says the threats he is receiving from the party Leadership may deter him from challenging president Rupiah Banda at the party’s convention next year.

Mr Mpombo says threats on those eyeing the MMD presidency have continued to increase as the party draws closer to the convention.

He says the intimidation and threats coming from the MMD leadership have become clear and unbearable.

He however maintains that he is still a fully fledged member of the party contrary to statements by party chairman Michael Mabenga that he is no longer a member of MMD.

But MMD Elections Chairman Mike Mulongoti has dismissed assertions by Mr Mpombo that those that intend to challenge president Rupiah Banda at the convention are being intimidated.

He says no one is being intimidated and that those wishing to challenge Mr Banda are free to do so.

Mr Mulongoti has since challenged those who have intentions to challenge president Banda at the convention to make their intentions known.

He has maintained that MMD is and will always remain a democratic party to when it comes to electing its leaders.

  1. He better stay home, otherwise he may NOT see the following day. With the dictatorship in Mwadya Mweka Daddy.

  2. Anybody remember what happened to Kavindele, or Nevers when he wanted to Challenge RB? Too many Zambians with short memories.

  3. There goes chicken. Just like Kavidele, after making so much noise about challenging KK, he just chickened out on the last huddle. Mpombo is a coward and chicken, as they say with feathers everywhere and no balls. Hon Katele has given you guarantee of protection and please don’t lie about intimidation. Just get into the ring.

  4. Mpombo go to the convention and challenge RB. yes RB is busy dishing out money to people so that he is annointed or goes through as party President. But your losing will expose them. Do not fear or at least leave the Party now and re-join Pact through UPND.
    It is a fact the deligates are toilored to toe the party line and vote the incumbant. Levy lost, kavindele withdrew this shows that it is hard place but go for it.

  5. Cold shivers at last, but am sure they havent squeZed you to a pop, any way just left the white flag like many of them8-|8-|8-|8-|8-|8-|8-|8-|8-|8-|8-|8-| COWARD

  6. Following “Mr Mulongoti has since challenged those who have intentions to challenge president Banda at the convention to make their intentions known..He has maintained that MMD is and will always remain a democratic party to when it comes to electing its leaders” is MP and Minister Mulongoti in his right frame of mind not to know that MPs Magande and Mpombo have publicly announced that they both intend to challenge Mr President and MMD acting president RB Banda at the MMD’s forth oming convention should it ever take off, even without intimidation which Hon MP Mpombo is referring to in this article?

    Whatever the case MMD is a monarch of late and let it prove me otherwise.

  7. According to the POST of today ““Rupiah Banda did not only dupe you his own people in Eastern Province, he has also duped people who worked hard for the MMD for 19 years. When MMD started, Rupiah Banda was in UNIP and he was telling you that MMD is a party for thieves but in the night he was meeting MMD and when all of you woke up in the morning you found that he is the Vice-President in MMD government…Today the same person is the President and has hijacked the leadership of MMD. He is a political hijacker, he by passed everybody in MMD,” Sata said and this could be why he seems to intimidate MMD presidential seat aspirants after MMD has been made a monarch party.

    B blest all.

    Bushe walikumanina iwe mwana ? I doubt anyway ,i have never met any person with a physics background umutuntulu.Starting from from my profesor in my physics foundations course to some guys from the physics faculty i drink with.I think your all guy`s have issues to do with the brain,:-?`

  9. The man is playing politics to oil the processing of his ‘exculpatory letter’. He is playing pseudo-prodigals son, i hope his friends catch him on this.

  10. The big question is, WHY HAS MMD FAILED TO IMPLEMENT THE DECENTRALISATION POLICY??
    Those close to MMD know that their fear is that Councils will perfome better, especially the City and Municipal Councils which are under the opposition, and that would be a threat to the survival of MMD. This is the perception of those in MMD, its sad to have such shallow minded leaders that can hold back the development of the nation for their own benefit at the expense of the masses.

    Finally, are the MMD controlled Councils doing better than those under the opposition?

    Can MMD tell us why Councils they control e.g. Kaoma in Western Province, Milenge in Luapula and Isoka have had misappropriation cases (not misapplication)??

  11. I think it is obvious that all these guys will cry foul eventually. I thought Mr Mpombe would be man enough to put up a good offence for the MMD Presidency, but he is chicken,,, quack, quack, quack!!!

    who are you exactly. for sure man you are an MMD flick. You are a supporter of poverty and soon you will be silenced believe me.
