Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) National Secretary, Muhabi Lungu, has dispelled media reports that the National Executive Committee (NEC) has unanimously adopted MMD president, Nevers Mumba as its candidate for the upcoming presidential by-election.

In a statement to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Mr Lungu said this is not the correct position that was taken by the National Executive Committee.

Mr Lungu said it is highly dishonest for anyone to communicate to the media on a non-resolution or any subject matter discussed for which they were not authorised.

He said the NEC did not mandate anyone to communicate to the media about its discussion or the direction that it gave.

Mr Lungu said as Secretary to the NEC he did not issue or authorize any individual to issue any statement on behalf of the party.
He said the statement that has been issued purporting to be emanating from the MMD Secretariat is, therefore, false, dishonest and intended to disrupt the direction given by the NEC.

Mr Lungu has since urged the media to disregard all statements about decisions made by NEC unless they emanate from the office of the National Secretary.

  1. A house divided can not stand.It seems there is no -one in Zambia interested in putting their personal ambitions aside. At this juncture UPND seems the only united party.Might as well all rally behind HH. At least he has a brain and commands respect in his party.

  2. Where we r going as a country NO ONE KNOWS….. BUT GOD KNOWS!
    Its flight 2015HH chabe.

    Its a ‘Do or Die’ situation for UPND.

    Viva UPND Viva HH Viva Zambia

  3. Please verify your stories before jumping to publish them. We are convinced that the evil cartel is trying to influence these elections using online media propaganda. Someone is busy trying to confuse the electorate by fabricating stories. I wonder if it’s the same chap who claimed that UK Zambians endorsed Kambwili? desperate times for desperate people.

    • Wamene uyu katelo ali kuni kansi? He or she seems all powerful. Omni portent and omni present. HAVE WE NOT GONE OVERBOARD HERE?

  4. Its all a sign that most Zambian political parties are not organization but a gathering of people with intentions to feed them selves. Very shameful.

    Rubbish of the highest order from these political parties and the numbers are even too much . We need to regulate them

  5. Its interesting…….the battle is on. FROM TODAY ONWARDS I WILL EVER PAY ALLIGIENCE TO ZAMBIAN WATCHDOG they give 99.99999999 news accuracy.
    Even whn Sata died they told us.

    Who is running ZWD I may ask?.

  6. The notion that Rupiah Banda should be allowed to contest the elections ahead of Nevers Mumba is just preposterous and a recipe for anarchy. It does not matter which individual one supports for the presidency for one to see that this is shameless and bare-faced skulduggery by Banda and his cronies. This chancer slid away with tail between the legs after Sata beat him leaving others to pick up the pieces,and he now has the gall to try and impose himself on people again in such crass fashion.If I was ever in doubt, I now can see just why the people of Zambia unceremously showed this jerk the door in 2011.The man has no scruples and every Zambian of good will must say no to him and send him back to the gutters where he belongs?He is a disgrace.

  7. THE TRUTH HAS FINALLY COME TO LOGHT THAT MUHABI LUNGU WAS INDEED A WRONG PERSON TO BE SECRETARY GENERAL OF MMD.

    HE HAS BROUGHT THE SAME ‘COWARD HYENA LIVED LONGER’ TO MMD. HE LEFT A MESSED UP UNIP TO BRING CONFUSION IN MMD.

    WHAT GUIDELINE HAS HE GIVEN TO RB ON THE CONSTITUTION OF THE MMD? INSTRAD OF JUST SAYING, ‘RB AND NEVERS SHOULD TALK ONE ON ONE’ HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN CATEGORICAL THAT NEVERS IS THE ELECTED PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. BUT HE HAS BEEN KEEPING QUIET.

    MUHABI STEP DOWN ON MORAL GROUNDS. DOES THE MMD CONSTITUTION SAY ITS MPS WHO WILL ELECT A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE? PLEASE TAKE YOUR CONFUSION AND GO BACK TO UNIP. YOU LISTEN TO TOO MANY VOICES INSTEAD OF HAVING PERSONAL CONVICTION ABOUT A MATTER. DORA WAS RIGHT. YOU DO NOT QUALIFY TO BE SG OF MMD.
