Adopt Nevers Mumba or MMD dies – MMD youth

MMD cadres brandish the party symbol in Chilanga constituency.

As MMD youth, we are shocked that some members of our National Executive Committee have elected to support the candidature of former President Rupiah Banda on the MMD ticket.
As we have stated before, the return of Mr Banda to politics is bad business for Zambia. This is retrogressive and only goes to serve personal and selfish interests.

We wish to warn that failure to adopt Dr. Nevers Mumba as presidential candidate will mark the end of the MMD. As youths in the party, we will work to annihilate the MMD if Dr Mumba is not given the adoption ticket.

We cannot sit and watch our beloved MMD be dragged in ancient form of politics by a small group interested in serving its own selfish interests.Dr. Mumba has made several personal sacrifices to ensure that the MMD stays afloat. He used his strong leadership skills to make the MMD attractive once more. Majority of those supporting Mr Banda abandoned the MMD, they are now regrouping because they know they will milk some money from him.

It should be stated in no uncertain terms that we will ensure that the MMD dies if Dr Mumba is sidelined. We will work flat out to ensure that the party is buried in the annals of history.
Mr Banda should be reminded that just three years ago, he was soundly rejected by majority of Zambians. What does he think has changed in the last three years?

Looking at events of last few weeks, we have made some conclusions, Mr Banda is a greedy and destructive old man who does not deserve any form of respect. He can never be a statesman. What kind of a man abandons his sick wife battling with cancer to come and grab a political party he voluntarily left?

    • On the political scene, I trust Nevers the most. If he stands, I vote for him. If he doesn’t, my second is HH. Otherwise, no one else.

      PF ends here! So much has gone wrong since PF came in. Their work has only been roads in which on the other hand, they used road contracts to enrich themselves through relatives. That’s why RDA was taken to state house. They used distant relatives to get contracts so that future investigations will not directly link them.

    • I must say I like the new Mushota. He/She speaks like a reasoning being now. The old one must have died with our president

    • I told you fellow bloggers that Nevers Mumba has no stronghold in Zambia.Northen province is for PF were mumba comes from.No stupit politician would pick a leader without a strong hold.This happens even in the United states of America there states predominantly for republicans(Anglo Saxons) and Democrats (Hispanic,Black Americans and mixed races)Banda has a stronghold Eastenr province, all he needs to win is to add own a few urban vote especially in LSK.PF strongholds are northern,Muchinga and Luapula,parts of copperbelt.HH has a stronghold that’s why UPND will never die.It has southern,western,north western,Parts of central and Lusaka.It is likely Banda and a PF candidate will split the votes and HH will get it.That iam positive because God has hiden the wisdom from PF and MMD.

  1. Though Banda has the constitutional right to run for President, it does seem to me that in this case he is being aSelfish Grand old Dad leaving his sick wife for Political Glory!!! and thats what I call IDIOSY!!

    • Nevers Mumba is smoking too much chambaaaa these days; these MMD buggers can suck my cork left to right and stuff some creamy garlic cream along with some sausages through my bottom then hammer it off like savages attack a piece of nice shiny black bottom; evans mfula at evaduco reporting live from lusaka fish market

  2. VIVA YOUNGMAN! LET’S NOT PICK BACK RUBBISH FROM THE DUSTBIN. RB IS JUST TRYING TO CREATE A SAFE HAVEN FOR HIS RUN AWAY, LIKE FATHER LIKE SON, CRIMINAL SON. RB’S GOVERNMENT WAS VERY CORRUPT. IT’S ONLY THAT IT IS NOT EASY TO CONVICT PEOPLE ON CORRUPT PRACTICES BECAUSE THEY COVER THEIR TRACKS AS THEY GO.

  3. Yes they should, Not this Old Man RB again. RB is not needed, is not wanted, should not try a comeback. All those planning to support him just want easy-quick-fast money. Not this time, no more presidents in their 70s, we are tired!!!!

    To be clear, RB1.0 was a disaster, it was so baaaaad that we ended up with the PF government. People were so disgusted with his leadership and the impunity of his governance that they picked a lesser bad government, the PF.

    Who on earth is feeding this man with illusions that RB2.0-reloaded will be different? No more Old Men. He should go and take care of his wife (He said she has cancer, this is no time to abandon his wife for Statehouse)

    Rupiah Bwezani Banda stay in Retirement

  4. From the on-going confusions in both camps, its easy to see that both the decapitated PF and the defunct MMD are the two sides of one coin. The similarities in their manner of confusions says it all, i.e. they both lack a clear futuristic ideology first and foremost, there is infighting in both camps as to who should be their Presidential candidate and yet both camps are saying their respective party constitutions provide guidelines on how to go about it. This is a clear sign to any well meaning Zambian not to entrust our Country into their hands. The chaos we are seeing from these two camps is just a tip of an iceberg. Our Country deserves better.

  5. You people don’t get it. Two things why Banda wants to come back are as follows:-
    1. He wants his dying wife to be buried as a First lady and since he will be the president he will dictate that she be buried at Embassy Pack.
    2. He wants to influence the dropping of criminal charges against his Children so that they can freely operate there criminal activities in the country and finish off what they started. So be carefull even as we choose our next president. Let us giving him a resounding NO.

  6. Zambians should bury RB politically if he stands. We will not let his family abuse Zambia like their vegetable garden. We don’t want to pay for his medical and funeral bills. He can waddle off to his farm in Chipata.

  7. Banda was busy snoring when Mumba was suffering to keep the party alive which banda left for dead, now he see’s a chance he wants to bounce back and enjoy someone work. Just sit down banda, focus on your family and cling on the the littlest dignity left in you. You stole from Zambia, and you want to steal again? Come on…you have shown your true colors on this one.

  8. Bowman Lusambo, who the hell is this thug? Does he have any political affiliation? He eats from every rubbish pit! These are the *****s who breach the peace because they get paid. Why is he so scared of RB’s comeback. Let every man decide his own destiny.

  9. Quote
    ‘ As youths in the party, we will work to annihilate the MMD if Dr Mumba is not given the adoption ticket.’

    We will bury you in the annals of history.

    Youth spirit!

  10. First and foremost, I would like to agree with other bloggers that it is everyone’s right to stand. As for RB, he is exercising his right too. However, now that for now he is in active politics, his monthly allowances being paid by Govt must be suspended. All benefits he is enjoying by virtue of being a past president must be halted. This is also a wake-up call to Zambians that our constitution needs to be water tight. We needed a provision stating that if a former president comes back in politics and contests position of president, he/she loses all state benefits and these can only be reinstated upon second retirement if he/she wins and if he/she loses, benefits will not be reinstated. Just like what happens when a widow remarries. After second divorce, original benefits are forgone.

  11. Just wondering what could be pushing our renowned stateman, RB, to such illogical actions! If I were him, I would consider this totally unthinkable!

  12. You are right Lusambo, RB is a fake character, he should never have been President of this country in the first place. Equally a fake character is Nevers Sekwila Mumba. The chap could have been President by now if he had not been so disrespectful to late Mwanawasa by failing to apologise when Levy asked to do so over that Katumbi issue. As it is now, he shall be dribbled even of the right to stand as Presidential candidate of a finished political party, the Mwadya Mweka Daddy (MMD).

  13. Personally I will be looking at the calibre and track records of presidential candidates. As of now RB is not a presidential material. He is facing criminal charges in the courts of law and that tells alot. Although he is innocent until proved guilty, he is better kept out of presidential race.

  14. We installed RB 1.0 into government, and all the files were corrupted, the system kept on rebooting. We went into safe mode uninstalled RB 1.0 and installed Sata 3.1. Sata 3.1 was running perfectly, but we did not make some backup and it crushed when we needed it the most. The makers of RB 1.0 recalled it from the shelves and replaced it with Neva 5.1, which was an improved version of RB 1.0. Neva 5.1 worked perfectly as an open source software and just as it was about to be launched, fights in the company arose because a few selfish individuals wanted RB 1.0 because they can corrupt the entire computer and extort money.
    Many end users know what RB 1.0 is capable of doing on their computers, and as such, if Neva 5.1 won’t be launched, then the alternative will be installation of HH 4.0…

  15. I agree with Bowman Lusambo 100 percent! Banda had his time and he flopped. Its time the party looked forward not backwards

  16. You are right Lusambu.Banda should be at bedside of his wife.Hes too old and looks like a canddate fo r heart attack may be he wants to die in service to have a better burrial send off.Cos has motivated this man to stand after he neglected his party and Mumba has indeed workrd hard to maintain MMD as compared to UNIP which collapsed after it became an oppositin party.

  17. Sport on ba Die Hard!! Rubbish Boy still wants to be president. Everyone starts from failing then winning but for him he started from winning and he wants to go on failing. Rubbish Boy just go and comfort your young wife.

  18. THOSE WHO ARE CALLING ON OUR OLD MAN ANYOKO TO CONSIDER THE HEALTH OF HIS SICK WIFE ARE WASTING TIME. HE CANNOT CARE FOR HIS WIFE.

    IT IS EVEN A FALLACY THAT HE CARED FOR HIS FIRST WIFE WHEN SHE WAS DYING OF CANCER. ALL THOSE WHO KNOW THIS OLD MAN WILL RECALL THAT THAT IS WHEN HE CARRIED ON A STEAMY AFFAIR WITH A THEN UNIVERSITY STUDENT.

    HE WAS WITH HER IN LONDON ALMOST EVERY MONTH WHILE HIS WIFE WAS DYING. PEOPLE TRIED TO TALK TO HIM BUT HE WAS TOO CARRIED AWAY. HIS WIFE HAD CANCER BUT DIED MORE OF A BROKEN HEART. THIS STUDENT LATER BECAME A CHIEF EXECUTIVE IN ONE OF THE BANKS.

    HE CANNOT CARE FOR HIS WIFE NOW.
