THE MMD has pleaded with its Members of Parliament (MPs) endorsing the candidacy of United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema to get back to supporting the former ruling party’s Nevers Mumba in the January 20, 2015 presidential election.

MMD acting national secretary Mwansa Mbulakulima said it was not too late for the parliamentarians to revert to supporting Dr Mumba since the campaigns were only reaching their peak.

“All the true sons and daughters of the MMD must come back and support the party’s candidate Dr Nevers Mumba. We are offering an olive branch to all of them,” he said.

Mr Mbulakulima said that the alliance with UPND was started by Dr Mumba and the agreement was that each party would go it alone in the election and that the only obstacle was the purported adoption of former president Rupiah Banda.

He warned that should the MPs remain stubborn, the party would have no choice but invoke the law on a parliamentarian who crosses the floor.

The actions of the parliamentarians endorsing Mr Hichilema have repercussions that attract disciplinary action.

    • Iwe Mbulakulima, don’t just target those MP’s endorsing HH, what about those MMD MP’s endorsing Lungu like Dollar Sillit?

  1. If Mumba is too blind to see that MMD members are protesting against his leadership then I don’t really know what I can say about the man. Your time is up, start thinking of a new career after elections and leave the party for a younger face to give it any hopes of resuscitation.

  2. Aren’t they just 6 MPs who are supporting UPND and the rest (28} are supporting the PFools? Why worry about the 6 instead of the 28?
