Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) President Nevers Mumba has expelled his Party’s National Secretary Muhabi Lungu and his vice Chembe Nyangu with immediate effect.
Speaking at a media briefing this morning Dr. Mumba said he had expelled Mr. Muhabi and Mr. Nyangu for insubordination and that it would be difficult to work with them as the party reorganises itself in the run up to the 20th January elections next year.
The opposition leader said the job of the national secretary is to organise the party and that keeping the duo would not be in the best interest of the party.
He said these two were insubordinate to him and accused Muhabi of using party funds to fight him despite being the person who fund raised the money for the party.
He explained that the decision to fire the duo is not in anyway a way of revenge against them but to ensure that party reorganises it self to ensure that it bounces back to power and that it would be difficult for the two work with others.
Mwansa Mbulakulima has since been appointed to act as National Secretary with Winnie Zalomous as his vice.
The opposition leader has also revoked ten Presidential Nominations but that the party’s National Executive Committee will have to ratify all these decision.
He also said the party will carry out an audit the books of the party to determine what has been happening in the last thirty days.
And Dr. Mumba says he is open to the idea of working with the former President during the campaigns but that the decision should came from the former Head of State.
He said Mr. Banda’s input would be welcome and that he is ready to work with him.
The MMD leader has also indicated that he will this afternoon be meeting members of parliament.
