Expelled Mafinga MMD MP Catherine Namugala has revealed that Dr. Nevers Mumba has allegedly started asking MMD MP’s to increase their monthly contributions to the party in order to support his flamboyant lifestyle.
Mrs. Namugala told a media briefing in Lusaka yesterday that the move was selfish especially that most MP’s have to finance their constituency programmes using personal funds and are also fighting expensive election petitions.
“This man’s lifestyle is very expensive and he is now asking MP’s to start contributing K3.5 million to the party so that he can continue living flamboyantly.”
Mrs Namugala also called on party members to demand for a fresh convention before the former ruling party goes into extinction.
She said that the dismal performance of the MMD in the just ended Mpongwe bye election is confirmation that the party is doomed under the leadership of Dr. Nevers Mumba.
“This is hard for us MMD members to accept that our party which has just been out of power for a year and half can come out number three in the Mpongwe, a seat it won by a landslide in the general election,” she said.
She said in Luswishi ward election in Mpongwe, the MMD polled a pathetic six votes only three votes better than UNIP which received three votes.
“How can the mighty MMD even fail to field candidates in eleven ward bye elections?”
Mrs. Namugala said the Mpongwe results should serve as a wake up for MMD members to realize that their party is dying.
“Our party is dying and Mpongwe is a wakeup call,” she said.
When contacted to comment MMD president Dr. Nevers Mumba maintained that views expressed by expelled Mafinga MMD Member of Parliament Catherine Namugala’s splinter group does not represent the views of the party.
Reacting to scathing attacks from Ms. Namugala after suffering another humiliation electoral defeat in the Mpongwe parliamentary and other Local Government by elections, Dr. Mumba who was reluctant to respond to the attacks said it was wrong for journalists call the group a faction because they are not part of the MMD.
Dr. Mumba told ZANIS in an interview last evening that Ms. Namugala’s group was expelled from the party hence its views does not represent that of the party before referring the reporter to get a comment from newly appointed Communications Director in the Office of the party president, Muhabi Lungu.
And when contacted for a comment, MMD Communications Director in the Office of the party president and National Executive Committee (NEC) member, Muhabi Lungu said the party is focused on reorganizing its self.
He challenged Mrs. Namugala to officially join the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) instead of sowing seeds of discords within the party.
Mr. Lungu who is also immediate losing aspiring MMD Lusaka Central parliamentary candidate, dismissed assertions that the former ruling party was heading for political oblivion under Dr. Mumba’s leadership.
He justified the defections of some MMD parliamentarians and other members to the ruling PF saying it was difficult to gain back public confidence premised on the electoral pledges that the PF made to the voters.
Mr. Lungu explained that it was normal for a defeated ruling party to lose members to the PF following the ruling party’s vigorous campaign against the party prior to the elections.
He however pointed out that Dr. Mumba’s faction is working tirelessly in order to restore public confidence so that it can challenge the ruling party in future elections.
And on calls from the splinter group to hold a national convention, Mr. Lungu said the party has hold two national conventions within three years that ushered in the Rupiah Banda and later Dr. Mumba in office.
He added that the party would not succumb to the group’s demand and accused Ms. Namugala’s group of fighting Dr. Mumba and the MMD on behalf of the ruling PF party.
No doubt, she is a hired gun and that is the characteristic of hired guns to target personal issues. I doubt if Nevers Mumba is that daft to go to MPs and say , “hey guys fund my flamboyant life style”.
Namugala’s statement sounds like a line from Sata’s playbook of lies and smearing opponents.
Nevers is a real problem that does not want to listen!
It seems he wants to be President at all cost, I remember him praising Sata before being fired from Canada.
Given the chance Nevers can stand on PF ticket. In the words of Muhabi Lungu, Nevers has tried multiple vessels and hopefully this is the one to take him to state house. And if its not I guess he will look for the next one.
Iwe Nevers Mumba is a power hungry man just like the hungry hyna (HH) of UPND.These men are driving their parties into political oblivion at a very fast rate!Nevers is a dictator judging at the way he has handled MMD since he was elected as president of MMD.True leaders dont just expel their members without hearing their views.It seems that if a member has a different view from that of Nevers that memebr should be expelled.It is the same in UPND.
Birds of the same feather disgracing each other in public: Namugala must understand that it is the ordinary Zambian taxpayers that have been funding her flamboyant lifestyle as minister too. The only difference is that Mumba is actually ASKING and quite reasonably asking from the privileged who still have access to state resources whereas ministers and govt officials merely still from public coffers without ASKING!
Sorry, I meant “…. STEAL… and not STILL..”
Tell Mumba to get a Job, He will turn you Namugala into a cash cow,he is a broke guy,he has not even a kantenmba business.
Not withstanding her personal life what Namugala is saying could be true. How else do you explain the the political situation on the Mpongwe by election. Did Mumba even bother to campaign and retain the seat ? What kind of leadership and sacrifice is he displaying when the party is renting him a mansion in Kabulonga. MMD are finished with Mumba as president. The faster they realise the better for them.
Nothin wrong with Nevrs Mumba he is bameless.Its just Namugala’s sour grapes cultivated using toxic MCS brand of fertilizer.
mmd how can you have neverlands as president?
Continue fighting, that is what you wanted how can you elect someone who failed to run a church and his own party. Dont even blame him just blame yourselves
Too much sex is not good for namungula,,, she is getting confused. sex is suppose to a de-stresser like its to alot of well grounded beings, but its proving toxic to namungula´s head.
I am sorry I just cant stand this woman. I cant see past her filthy words of instructing Zambian women to be as scantily dressed as possible to get attention. She is so shallow and whorish. Her and winter Nevers deserve each other.
Nuby, Nuby, Nuby………….
THIS PARTY IS NOW LED BY SOMEONE WHO IS USED TO A FREE-OF-CHARGE LIFE. NEVERS MUMBA ALWAYS THINKS THERE SHOULD BE TITHES AND OFFERINGS EVEN IN A POLITICAL PARTY TO ACCOMMODATE HIS LAVISH AND EXTRAVAGANT LIFE. EVEN OUT OF UMUTULO AND TITHE HE USED TO RECEIVE FROM HIS FLOCK HE JUST SQUANDERED ALL THE CON ON LAVISH HOLIDAYS WITHOUT EVEN THINKING OF BUILDING HIMSELF A HOUSE AT LEAST A CHEAP ONE MUCHIBOLYA. THAT’S THE WORST NIGHTMARE HE FEARS (LEAVING PARTY PRESIDENCE TO BECOME HOMELESS), WHENEVER SOMEONE IS SUGGESTING A CONVENTION. SO, HE IS SERIOUS PARASITE.
we had an opposition that could make sense when ever it could speak.
you are right, PF
Catherine may not be an angel but sje is a formidable politician and she is right, Nevers is not taking MMD anywhere. Him and the wife are very irresponsible Zambian eho always want it big, despite not beinghardworking!!
If you gave Namugala to me, it is the night that would be short. lol
All sorry! MMD is still alive!!!!!
It died with FTJ, the man was short but tall! did you ever hear all these wrangling when he was on that chair, yes he pulled his Italian jobs well, no tall man with a weapon btwn his legs or woman could stand and make useless noise like todays mmd members, the guy was a born leader, when he spoke we all listened and heard, waoh oh waoh! where are such men in Zambia today, i mean minus the Italian jobs, we need such no nosense men, i miss kafupi for his leadership skills minus the Italian jobs and the brothels, not this primitive political nonsense we have today even from the so called educated and rich, what a flop! and whats worse? a flop in everything, name it alles! what a shame!
The assumption that never s is the automatic presidential candidate is wrong. Even for him to be putting up poster’s for 2016 is wrong by all accounts. The party constitution is very clear. There is the party candidate and the MMD president on the other handThe two roles are separate. Please be guided accordingly.
MMD should not not respond to such issues by expelled wounded buffalos… they should just say, “No comment.” or better still, “Excuse me, Who is Namugala!?” and move to more important issues.
NAMUGALA WHAT,S WRONG IWE CIMAYO WE ALL KNOW THAT U ARE A HIRED GUN ALL U WANT IS MONEY.JUST WAIT WHEN THE CONSTITUTION PASSES AND THAT 50+1 IS INCLUDED HOW HH AND NEVERS WILL PLAY THE GAME. FOR NOW THEY WANT 2 SHOW THAT THEY CAN,T WORK TOGETHER SO THAT CNP DOES NOT MANIPULATE THE 50+1 AND THEN THAT,S WHEN U,LL C HOW PIPO WHO HAVE GONE TO SCHOOL OPERATE.UNLIKE U WHO ONLY USES BOTTOM POWER TO EXCEL.THOSE GUYS ARE READY TO DEPUTIES EACH OTHER EITHER WAY AND U,LL C HOW IT,LL B VERY EASY TO REMOVE CNP.PIPO ON THE GROUND ARE FED UP WITH LIES OF CNP AND 3 YRS FRM NOW HE BE VERY UNPOPULAR TO AN EXTENT WHERE BY IF HE RIGS 2016 ELECTION HE,LL BE REMOVED BY SOLDIERS.HH DIDN,T WANT TO DEPUTIES THE GUY BCOZ HE KNOWS HOW THE CROOK OPERATES.HE CAN DEPUTIES MUMBA BCOZ HE WANTS ZAMBIA TO DEVELOP.
Muhabi Lungu, would I be wrong to call him a political Party liquidator? He only joins parties which are at the verge of collapse & there is some kind of isambo lyamfwa (property grabbing) going on, remember he was KK’s spokesperson & later on Francis Nkoma….now Nevers….but one thing we can not take away from him is his eloquence.
Namugala is right MMD MPs are the ones paying for Nevers’ house in kabulonga as well as his upkeep,this man cant even fend for himmself so why on earth would you allow ichitekwa like him to run the party???
TWALIMWEBELE… PASTOR MUMBWE CANNOT TAKE YOU ANY WHERE…..HE IS A PRASITE AND FAILURE. WORK UP QUICKLY BEFORE IT IS TO LATE.
MMD PRESIDENTS ARE NOT CHOSEN BY ITS POPULACE. THEYWEN FROM SLUMBER AND IMPOSED ON MEMBERS. CHILUBA WOKE UP MWANAWASA AND MADE HIM PRESIDENT. MWANAWASAOUND BANDA ON THE FARM WITH TANDIWE AND ASKED THEM TO COME TO LUSAKA. WHO IS THE NEXT TO BE RESURRECTED AD BECOME MMD PRESIDENT…….?
“Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned” Nevers just move back to Kitwe and re-claim your Church and your Riverside mansion. I’m sure you will sleep better
I SEE MMD NOT WINNING ANY SIT IN 2016.UPND WILL B AT THE DISTANT SECOND POSITION. AS AT NOW LET THE OPO CONTINUE DREAMING. NAMUGALA JUST LET THAT YO SIT WE GO 4 ANOTHER SO AS TO BEAT THEM AGAIN.
Developmental issues please…
MMD MEMBERS START PREPARING TO PAY TITHES TO YO LEADER. U HAVE CHOSEN TO B LED BY SOMEONE WHO HAS LIVED HIS ENTIRE ADULT LIFE ON MUTULO.
i agree with you. All he knows is tithe and mutulo plus pastors basket. He cannot endure the hardships MCS has endured for 10 years. Next he will be found begging in Busses at intercity in the name of preaching the gospel and never visit the ill in hospitals because there in no offering- HYPOCRITES.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This the the beginning of the End for MMD, Nevers was just a junior lab assistant until he was given bu Dokota by bogus born again church. He loves to live a lavish life style together with his wife who comes from well to do family. Musotwane was the best candidate as Mutati also stole from ZESCO and was fired together with the guy who buried the money
mmdead for ever! This is good news so go ahead you nonsensw mmd supporters bla bla bla period.
Why can’t she join pf?i think Namugala is being used by some big fishes within the party,as we are sailing,MMD will be the thing of the past because of the poor way of leadership exibited by Dr Mumba.By the way why did you choose him?blame yourselves because he was away and he only came just within three months and you elected him as your foolish party president,you are also foolish as well..just shut your stinking mouth you Namugala.
The womenfolk of Zambia must watch out for a treacherous and virulent prostitute. Namugala really stinks with her scent that grabs married men. Namugala and Nawakwi are the perfect twin queens in the art of deception. Men know very well that prostitutes can shout the worst of insults to men who respect their families and refuse to dish out money recklessly. The pattern is the same in even in work places where descent men are dispised by husband-grabbing secretaries.
walilalapo nankwe bu colour bobe, useless secretaries abuser.
IWE MUMBA, how do you organize a nation before you organize your small party, UKUMFWA NAKO TAUMFWA
Careful MMD this man will sale you party or just abandon it the way he did with his church.
IWE MUMBA, BUSHE KULABA UPENA NGAWASANGUKA POLITICIAN? PANTU MONA UKO WAFUMA, NSHAKWEBE IFINGI
I am very excited for the MMD loss in Mpongwe bye-election.
This is a party I HATE most in the country. I am Missing Andeleki who had almost wetted my appetite to obliterate this party on the face of the Earth, thru deregistration.
85% of people who were in MMD are flourishing on wealth corruptly obtained, but the Irony is that, they are using the same corruptly obtained wealth to defend them in courts of law.
I know that in courts they can be acquitted on technicalities but not with GOD. There will be NO issues of technicalties with God.
With God the question would, “Did u still when u saved under MMD as a blah,blah blah?”
“yes my Lord”
The lord would ask another question,
“Did you know that, that was sin?”
Then they would answer,
“Yes my Lord”
The Lord would then…
I am sorry I meant “steal” , and not still.
when you served not saved
I DO NOT SUPPORT THE MMD. BUT I THINK BOTH NAMUGALA AND NEVERS MUMBA ARE RIGHT ON ONE HAND BUT ALSO WRONG ON THE OTHER HAND. FIRSTLY NEVERS HAS THE LEGITIMATE RIGHT TO BE PRESIDENT FOR MMD. HE CAME IN VIA THE BALLOT. MMD CHOSE HIM. SO IT WILL BE UNFAIR TO HOUND HIM OUT. LETS BE FAIR WITH NEVERS MUMBA. BUT AGAIN NAMUGALA IS SPOT-ON WHEN SHE NOTES THAT MMD IS DEAD OR DYING. IT WILL BE NAIVE FOR MMD TO REFUSE THE INEVITABLE. MMD NEEDS TO WAKE VERY HARD TO REVIVE THEIR PARTY. THEY FOR SURE CHOSE A WRONG PRESIDENT. BUT AGAIN IT IS NOT THEIR PRESIDENTS FAULT. THEY HAVE SHOT THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT. AND THEY HAVE TO DRINK THEIR BITTER PILL.
HELL hath no fury like a woman scorned!!!!
What Catherine is saying may have made sense before she joined the Kachingwe group. Now it appears ” sourish grapersh”. Her integrity is equally on the line. Skeletons in the closet.
USHE KANSI NAMUGAAALA, BA NA KU KAANA MWA!!!???
WHY U HATE THIS MAN SO MUCH!!!????
WE KNOW THERE’S MCS BEHIND U!!! U’VE BEEN TOLD TO WAIT B4 U CAN RELINGUISH YO SEAT, TO GIVE THEM MORE TIME TO ORGANISE CASH FOR BYE-ELECTION CAMPAIGNS!! USELESS EVIL POLITICIANS!!! U WANT TO FINISH EVEN THE LAST DROP OF A POOR ZAMBIAN’S BLOOD!!!
GOD’S JUDGEMENT IS AT HAND!!!
IS’NT IT CHEAP POLITIKING TO SAY THAT WHOEVER DIFFERS WITH HIS PARTY IS A PAID UP THUG? ISNT THIS THE REASON WHY SOME COLONIALISTS SAID AFRICA WAS NOT READY FOR DEMOCRACY?
He ran away from PF livingstone violence and he tells us donti kutina
@29.1 The London eye, thank u so much for that observation, its really supposed to be, “served” and not, “saved”
Also @28 its supposed to be “whetted” and not “wetted”……just another correction,lol.
LT website is now part of Post newspaper and PF party.
The LT newsmedia has abandoned reporting truth in favour of PF govt to peddle lies like the Post and other PF govt state media compelled to offer apologies daily as part of its reportage to the nation.
namugala you are right mumba mukulu sana afwile akwata inganda iyakwe secondly mmd kwasila out of 36 local govt elections we had both mmd and upnd scoped only 6 the rest pf hammered which tells alot about the sinking of these two parties run by hungry hyenas
