Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) President Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba has expressed dismay at the ongoing power struggle in the ruling Patriotic Front Government after the demise of the Republican President Michael Chilufya Sata on 28th October 2014. Dr Mumba says that it is shocking how PF party leaders are outdoing each other to succeed Mr Sata to the point that the nation is becoming ungovernable.

Dr Mumba said he is disappointed that last night, some PF cadres rioted and began burning tyres and throwing stones at vehicles after learning that PF Party Secretary General Edgar Lungu was fired by acting Republican and PF President Dr Guy Scott. “This kind of Stone Age politics is unacceptable,” Dr Mumba said. ”

This situation is regrettable for a nation that just celebrated 50 years of independence. It makes a mockery of the whole struggle for independence and reinforces the view that Africans are incapable of running their own affairs”, said Dr Mumba.

In MMD, we never had this kind of senseless confusion. When our President Levy Mwanawasa passed away in 2008, we mourned and buried him with dignity and there was complete peace and harmony and a smooth transfer of power to Mr Rupiah Banda. We also had several leaders in MMD, more than ten, jostling to succeed Mr Mwanawasa but they did it respectfully. There were no violent warring factions and no MMD cadres rioting and insulting the memory of the late president,” Dr Mumba said.

Dr Mumba cautioned that if anarchy is allowed to take root in the nation as rival camps in PF fight each other, it can lead to chaos and political instability. He urged the PF to put its house in order for the sake of the 14 million Zambians, many of whom supported the PF but who will end up victims if the vicious power struggle continues.

“I urge Dr Scott and his team to think beyond their own interests and put the nation first. Let them put aside their differences and send off Mr Sata next week with honour and dignity. Then let them maturely choose the PF candidate to avoid unnecessary bloodshed and chaos. In the meantime, we expect the law enforcement agencies to be completely professional and avert any violence between rival factions in PF. I urge all Zambians to pray for our leaders so that we have peace and stability.”

  1. Ba Nevers, where have you been all along? This is the time you have to comment when peace has been restored?

    • I meant to say when “peace” has temporarily been restored in PF. Anyway Pastor, it’s better said or done, than never.
      I see the presidential race to be between Edgar Lungu and HH. Ps Mumba may have an outside chance.

    • I’m one of Dr Scott’s principal supporters but was very disappointed with his decision to fire Edgar Lungu. My advice to Dr Scott is stay away from the so-called cartel (if it exists) and cement his own legacy as a safe pair of hands during Zambia’s darkest hour. That debt-ridden cartel mafia cannot hold Dr Scott or indeed Zambia at ransom and should instead pay the monies they owe to DBZ, ZRA, NAC and others.

    • Mumba has short memory, there was alot of fighting among cadres.
      Even that Maureen Mwanawasa chased away Ba Sata in Chipata, when he attempted to follow body of his friend.
      Truly the PF saga is too much, but I think it is simply devastating that Ba Sata has gone too early, Scott is too touched, worse than the real Zambians.

    • He is right, MMD behaved themselves. even taking Mwanawasa around the whole Zambian with one word. Not these PF Pigs?? They have embarrassed us. Don’t votes for PF, they are under 5s, they will mess Zambia.

    • @MM-The Bible says:Be slow to speak and quick to hear.So what Dr Mumba did is a sign of wisdom and maturity.He speaks after so many things have happened and analysed.Therefore,he speaks from an informed position other than than just comment any how for the sake of publicity to be known that you exist.Dr Mumba has shown good Leadership quality of being silent and just listen and observe and comment later if need be.

    • @MM Le Grand Patron Wa Zabanga, Dr. Mumba’s timing to put his views is a hallmark of quality and decent leadership. He consults, reflects then respond with appropriate words everybody expects to hear from a leader. You should know by now that Nevers isn’t a sangwapo-type who jumps on every bandwagon of mob-psychology. For some some faceless desperate and ill-advised regional party leaders, it is common.You know who!. These will stop at nothing but try everything to be seen relevant. Even on issues they don’t have a clue about, they would rather state the obvious in fake emotional tone yet no thought whatsoever.

  2. I thought you are also in the same boot.RB wants to come back and take leadership of MMD.What’s your comment DR Mumba?It is just a matter of time you will in the boot with PF .
    Anyway ,good observation.

    • @Banda Levy-Maturity and wisdom shall be demonstrated.However,the sad news received that Mr Banda’s wife has been diagonized with cancer,I think it will be wise and a moral thing for him to stay away from his divisive comeback call and stay by the side of his sick wife.

    • @wu, you are spot on. A quality leader, reflects, thinks, consults and listens before he speaks or acts. Not yap yapping all the time. They say, empty tins make the loudest noise lol

    • @Harry-Don’t misuse words.If at all Rupiah makes that mistake of appearing on the scene again,it shall be Rupiah jostling for power against Dr Mumba.Dr Mumba is already in power as the MMD President.Revisit your English vocabulary you might have learnt in nite school.Dr Mumba is NOT jostling power from or against anybody,but it’s pipo who want to fight against him,due jelous and lack of understanding of the time we’re in,in this ;ubilee Season.This Season has got it’s own leadership.Rupiah had his own time.

    • RB is wise enough to know that he passed his sell-by-date more than half a decade ago. Now 80th birthday is starring in his face. With his beloved wife bana Mpundu sick in hospital, the last thing he would want is put himself in political firing line. His less-than-clear stance on return to frontline politics does nothing good for anyone. It only destabilises and divides the MMD. Anything less than full support for the party leader he handed the baton over to will be unwise and selfish given this is the only time he’s got left to promote fresh leaders of his children and grandchildren’s age going forward. The country cannot emphasize enough, this is Nevers Sekwila Mumba’s time.

  3. Looks like Nevers just woke up from a slumber. I guess he hasnt seen the statement from Nyama soya. Start preparing no Nevers, after burial might be too late to handle RB.

  4. A Preacher turned politician (the bible says money is the root for all evil) CAN’T BE TRUSTED FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.

  5. Mr. Mumba – Don’t be too comfortable, RB is coming back on 12th Nov 2014. The confusion you are seeing in PF is nothing compared to what is coming your way…………..

  6. PF has not beaten any leader in this fracas. I remember the way ba Kachingwe ba ponwene ku ma MMD thugs sponsored by Mumba & Muhabi. Yaliko badi. The PF one is ok.

  7. @ Susanoo which bible says ‘money is the root for all evil’? Money is fine but ‘loving money’ instead of loving GOD the creator of Silver and Gold is wrong …. When you check 1 Timothy 6:10, the bible says “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs”.

    Well said Rev. Dr. Nevers Mumba PF must show restraint and mourn our late leader with some dignity….

  8. Mr. Mumba has spocken well, what his forgetting is that in his party currently both of his vice presidents have made it clear that they dont respect that he is their president…

  9. Ba mumba smell the coffee under ur nose,u busy throwin stones knowin very well dat u live in a glass house,Rb has already made his intentions known,wait till the mmd thugs led by scorpion kadobi harangue u major kachingwe style

  10. HE STARTED PF ALONE,WITH THE DEATH OF SATA THAT MARKS THE END OF PF.THE DAYSATA WIL BE BURIED,HE WILL BE BURIED WTH HIS PARTY,THE PF.MARK MY WORDS.

  11. I totally 100

    I totally 100% agree with Chanda the power struggle in the PF will continue.Even if they pick another presidential candidate,he or she will not be accepted by the PF cadres.for sure mr sata will be buried with PF on the 11th November 2014.

  12. PF IS GONE FOR GOOD. GOD JUST GAVE THEM THREE YEARS. RB HAS LOST BEFORE HE EVEN BEGINS. HE HAS A VERY SICK WIFE AND WANTS TO BE DISGRACED. THINGS HAVE WORKED AGAINST HIM, BECAUSE HE WAS BANKING ON 2016.

    BUT KNOWING GOD, HE HAS DRIBBLED HIM THROUGH THE DEATH OF MR. SATA. THERE IS NO TIME FOR A CONVENTION. NEVERS IS BOTH PARTY PRESIDENT AND PRESIDENTIAl CANDIDATE. FULL STOP!!!! DOES RB REALLY THINK NEVERS WILL JUST ROLL-OVER AND ALLOW RB TO TAKE OVER, AFTER ALL THE NONSENCE HE HAS SUCCESSSFULLY FOUGHT AND WON. HOW WILL HE OVERIDE THE MMD CONSTITUTION. WHOEVER IS ADVISING RB DOES NOT LOVE HIM.

    NEVERS IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE AND RB WILL END UP BEING VERY, VERY, VERY EMBARRASSED. RB RAN AWAY TO BOSTON FEARING THE PF CADRES AND ‘HIS’ FRIEND.

  13. FREE ADVISE TO RB. ASK THE OTHERS WHO HAVE FALLEN AT NEVERS’ FEET FOR FREE ADVISE AND THEY WILL TELL YOU “NEVERS ASEBANYA MUDALA.”.

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. HE WAS IN CANADA WINDING UP NOT EVEN INTERESTED IN WHAT WAS GOING ON AFTER MMD LOST ELECTIONS. SUDDENLY SOME MMD YOUTH AND WOMEN STARTED CHANTING THAT “WE WANT OUR PRESIDENT TO COME BACK FROM CANADA.”

    BEFORE OUR VERY EYES, THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPENED AND NEVERS ASCENDED TO THE MMD PRESIDENCY. BE CAREFUL.

  14. @katingo nsambe,u have opened up my eyes,with all what Dr Nevers Sekiwila Mumba has gone through & to see him standing up to this day,I give glory unto God Al might,surely God is at work.
    During every golden jubilee,God always does something un usual & let all of us trust God for a miracle perhaps the time has come for this nation to be lead by a God fearing person.
    Viva Dr Mumba & viva MMD & u have well spoken.

  15. Ba Nevers, mwiba comfortable, so many people don’t want you as president, stop championing yourself, we hear the people bring confusion, are the ones who want to bribe MPS to vote for them, and are promised 50 million Kwacha, by GBM, these are the people who are bringing confusions, does GBM, has a degree? How can he communicate with the world? With that grade 9 English? Please, I wouldn’t waste my vote, on pompous people like, the so called Lubinda, Kambwili, over my dead body, these are the ones who are causing confusion.
