MMD president Nevers Mumba says the party leadership is willing to dialogue with expelled members of the party to resolve their differences.
He said, however, that the expelled members must be willing and indicate to the leaders that they want to dialogue.
“Negotiating, dialogue is always an option.They must be willing and say let’s talk,” Dr Mumba said at a press briefing in Lusaka yesterday.
“I sent a letter to Muhabi Lungu last week to let him and the other members know that the door is open,’’ Dr Mumba said.
He said the expelled MMD members should realise that they had injured their party and used their resources and energy to build other parties.
“They cannot just come back and cause further injury, they should follow procedure,’’ Dr Mumba said.
He said it will be difficult to reconcile with the party if the expelled members remain adamant and behave as if they did nothing wrong.
Dr Mumba said the members were expelled for going against the party rules and therefore need to acknowledge what they have done.
He said the current leadership will do everything within its powers to save the party from extinction, adding that the party is being re-organised, starting with the grass roots in all the provinces.
