MMD youth wing today plan to lock out National Secretary Richard Kachingwe from the party secretariat.

MMD youth wing coordinator Bowman Lusambo said the youth in the party would today march to the party secretariat to hound out Major Kachingwe from his office.

Mr Lusambo said in an interview yesterday that the youth would no longer tolerate Maj Kachingwe’s maneuvers to undo MMD president Nevers Mumba.

“Today we are going to fish him out of the Secretariat together with Chembe Nyangu. We will camp there until the National Executive Committee (NEC) calls for a meeting to discipline Maj Kachingwe and Mr Nyangu,” he said.

He said other secretariat staff and NEC members would be allowed to carry on with their duties without hindrance.

“We will not be intimidated by his military expertise, what we are saying is that he should respect our party president and the Members of Parliament,” he said.

Mr Lusambo said claims by Maj Kachingwe that he was instrumental in keeping the MMD afloat after its defeat by the Patriotic Front (PF) during the September 20, 2011 general elections were not correct.

He charged that members of the party were aware that Maj Kachingwe and President Sata were old time friends who had continued working together.

He also charged that Mafinga MP Catherine Namugala and Maj Kachingwe were delaying Dr Mumba’s party programmes.

Maj Kachingwe on Wednesday vowed that no ‘rogue elements’ would hound him out of the former ruling party.

Maj Kachingwe also disclosed at a media briefing that there was a clique in the party which was targeting to destabilise the secretariat.

Maj Kachingwe and Mr Nyangu have in the recent past come under attack from within the party that they had been compromised and were allegedly working with the PF.
But Maj Kachingwe said it was not his style of politics to insult the Republican President as promulgated by some people in the MMD.

He said some people had been accusing him of not issuing strong statements against the PF and President Michael Sata in particular.

Meanwhile, sources within the MMD yesterday revealed that MMD MPs met with Dr Mumba at his residence in the morning to chart the way forward on the impasse in the party.

And MMD chairperson for elections Gabriel Namulambe said it was important for the party to realise that it had problems which needed to be resolved internally.

Mr Namulambe said in an interview that party members should desist from running to the press to iron out their problems.

He said those with issues should come out in the open and lay on the table any problems which needed to be resolved.

“Let us accept that there is need to sit down and sort out the problems. There is need to face the problems head on instead of going to the media,” he said.

  1. This should be a showdown between Kachingwe vs Sata and not Kachinwe against his own MMD youth.Sata is the root of all friction and division in zed.

  2. Politics are very different from formal employment, if you aint performing in formal employment they issue a warning letter. if you continue under performing they charge not this sort of thing in politics where you fish out someone from the office with a mob

  3. Sata has got nothing to do with this. Kachingwe categorically pointed out the fact that he will not insult Sata so is that a problem…? You what a leader like Kaingu…a retrogressive, archaic and nincompoop politician. What Nevers wants is for Kachingwe to go for Sata’s jugular. Is that the way to lead? No. Does it mean if you have divergent views then you should be enemies? No!

  4. Iwe ka lusambo,respect democracy, nyangu and kachingwe were elected at the convention so wat ur planning is lawlesness. Get it frm me MMD will never bounce back to power.its this nosense which made yo party loose power,u allowed chaps lyke william banda to attack inocent citizens.don’t be foolish u’ll need PF one day coz politics in Zambia ar just that.take yo tym Man! Are u employeed young Man? Look after yo family harrasing nyangu and kachingwe won’t solve problems MMD is facing! Infact MMD is now irrelevant politically!

  5. Lusambo is indeed the rogue distabilising the MMD! Major plz take drastic action against this rouse rogue, suspend him he does not own MMD at all! He’s a proper case of gross indescipline like masumba!

  6. Nevers must resolve this. He is the one who threatened to make Zambia ungovernable. Now PF has outsmarted him. Wapya baisa. Lelo, Lelo!!

  7. Oblivion here we come! Clueless, visionless leadership in the MMD is headed for crush landing. All MMD MPs who are sharp like Masumba should jump on the sailing PF boat. Ther is no need why smart MPs like Mukata, Taima, Namugala, Mutati should continue under fake pastor Mumba who thought politics was simply talking alot with no solid mobilisation strategy. Ati MMD youths, watch and learn from Zambia’s greatest politician MC Sata. Sinyinda is now a disgraced vangabond after following HH’s bantustan enclave politics. Viva Sata, Viva PF

  8. IN LIFE ITS EITHER YOU ARE THE RIDER OR THE HORSE. KACHINGWE MUST CHOOSE HIS MASTER AND WHOM HE GIVE HIS ALLIGENCE. ON NAMUGALA, SHE IS ONE WOMAN THAT MMD MUST KNOW THAT SHE REPORTED MOST OF THOSE CASES THAT MPS WERE ANSWERING IN COURTS. SHE ENTERED BOARDERED AREAS AS SOON AS PF CAME INTO POWER TO REPORT HER FRIENDS.
    WAKE UP MMD, YOU ARE UNDER SIEGE. SOMETIMES IT TAKES A GOAT TO HELP THE SHEEP TO MOVE. NEVERS USE THOSE GOATS AROUND YOU AND BE A LION ON THAT CHAIR THAN SHEEP, ITS NOT FELLOWSHIP TIME, ITS WORKING TIME. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN YOU THINKING LIKE A SNAKE BUT REMAIN HARMLESS. I THOUGHT THAT HOW MR. SATA GOT THE THROWN, THO HIM WAS BITING SOME PEOPLE AND STILL IS.

  9. Major Kachingwe, if your own people cannot trust you, it’s better to step down, ask sata for a job in foreign service and continue with life

  10. You will be surprised in 2016 when Nevers Mumba will be voted into office. Some of you will drop dead. Sata is trying to finish MMD by all means but he will not manage. The MMD is the strongest party in Zambia and it will remain strong whether Kachingwe an soldier is their or not. Wilatutinya ka kachingwe no bu soja bobe ubwakale, uko.

  11. I meant: an ex-soldier.

  12. You chaps who are celebrating MMD wont disappear anywhere, thats wishful thinking. All parties face difficulties but it is how this crisis is handled that matter. The party is bigger than any individual. Kachingwe must show why he should not be disciplined? Why did make an appointment without the knowledge of entire party leadership not even his president? This is undermining authority and double dealing. Just like you cant hold a party meeting without secretariat knowing, it is a disciplinable offence. Being national secretary makes him not above party rules and procedures. If he is objective like he claims let him apologise for the mistake, being CEO must know better the rules. Did you ever hear a PFor UPND SG make an appointment with Mwanawasa or RB, without consulting party leadership?

    • MMD WILL SURELY NOT DISAPPEAR ANYWHERE. JUST LIKE UNIP HAS NOT DISAPPEARED. IT WILL BE ALIVE, BUT IRRELEVANT POLITICALLY.

    • analyse issues critically…MMD has made history and it will be remembered just like UNIP but bouncing back my friend is a non starter…forget about this party and make your own if you are a politician….just advising…

  13. NAMPUNDU, I FULLY AGREE WITH YOUR SENTMENTS. IF ANY THING, KACHINGWE IS WHAT I WUD CALL A SELF CONFEESED BETRAYER OF HIS BOSS NEVERS MUMBA, HIS FELLOWS IN THE NATIONAL EXCUTIVE AND HIS PARTY AT LARGE. HE MUST BE EXPELLED WITHOUT DELAY. HE IS A DANGER TO THE PARTY. LET THE PARTY REPLACE HIM WITH KABINGA PANDE AND HIS DEPUTY MUKONDO LUNGU AND FOR THE WOMENS AFFAIRS FIND A FEARLESS WOMAN WHO WILL MOBILISE THE FELLOW WOMEN IN ZAMBIA.

  14. Bane, we all know that Kachingwe nimuselela kwakaba, so l dont see why MMD cant see that! Word of advice, MMD must appreciate their lack of foresight which made opposition miserable and now is haunting them. So let them resolve the matter quietly by even lobbying for a job for kachingwe from PF so they rid of the opportunist. Infact its high time they started their house in order by overhauling the party constitution spelling out exactly how the party shall be governed and in breach, the consequences. As is the case now, nothing will be making sense.

  15. If nevers does not find a way to handle this,this will be mmds burial!Instead pf breathing life into it they are practically sucking out the little in it.

  16. politics at its best nevious mumbwa has come to finish you guys the way he finished his church and party.please guys just join the boat before it is full.viva pf we expect kachingwe namugala and nyangu to come with more followers .plus those ten mmd mps and their followers.yaya pabwato more 110 years in power.

  17. #9 point of correction we’re nt
    chaps,if u call yo family members chaps,we’re not part of yo family organisation.online media is nt abt disrespect bt accomodating other pipoz views.be civilised u MMD thug.

  18. MMD youths should not relent,Major Kachingwe has never been known to work in the opposition.During 2001 General Elections,Major Kachingwe had a Vanette in which he loaded Cabbages and carried youths going round in Kabwata Constituency and they were denouncing late Levy Mwanawasa as a cabbage while he was throwing cabbages to the people.Kachingwe was then in FDD.Surprisingly,immediately Mwanawasa was elected President,he warmed himself to State House and ended up enjoying appointments into government.I’m therefore not surprised for Kachingwe’s behavior towards Michael Sata.If Kachingwe remains National Secretary any longer than he has been,MMD will go into oblivion while Kachingwe will go back into Diplomatic Service.

  19. ..AWE BANE, NEVERS MUMBA SAID HE WILL MAKE DIFFICULT FOR SATA AND PF. HE SAID HE WILL FIGHT HAD AND MAKE SURE THE BUDGET FAILS. HW PROMISED TO UNITE WITH THE OPPOSITION TO BRING PF DOWN, NOW WHERE IS HE? HIS PARTY IS CRUMBLING DOWN, THE HOUSE WHICH IS DIVIDED WILL NEVER STAND. BA NEVERS LANDENI TUMONE. POLITICS FOR YOU. YOU MIGHTY THINK EVERY ONE IS ON YOUR SIDE, YOU ASK YOUR FORMER PRESIDENT RUPHIA BANDA

  20. Bashikulu, I need to come and see you urgently, it’s getting too hot for me in the MMD. I would appreciate a ‘brown envelope’ and a job, please.

  21. Uncivilized way of approaching issues is by locking up of offices. That is Tekela Banda’s tactics that are still at play by the believers of violence ideology! MMD will never come back to power no matter what! Remember what happened to UNIP that is the same way things will go. The MMD leadership also is job on training using wrong methods to run the party. I feel pity for people who are still clinging to MMD. Just know that after PF rule it will be another party.

  22. Imwe bonse mwebalelanda mwachepa sana am a military man and not happy that MMD chose Mumba instead of me so am going to make sure Mumba and the party finishes before 2016. Bowman Lusamboa am as old as your father so respect me how will I provide for my family if I dont go to plot one soliciting for brown envelopes? If you want you can also go there after all Dora and Namugala were there too. What do you want me to do you chap?

  23. You put a known opportunist at the helm of the party, expect such problems. For those not in the know; this Nevers Mumba had applied to stand on PF ticket in 2006 in Chinsali. That was after Levy had fired him. MMD is finished and this is a sad development for Zambia. Nevers was never and will never be part of the MMD that we created. To him it is just a vehicle to riches.

  24. MMD will never bounce back to power. You people,have you forgotten that zedians never eat back what they have vomitted? Oblivion is near. Just continue with your phd’s. kudos awaits me
