MMD President Nevers Mumba has vowed to viciously fight back any dissent in the former ruling party.
Dr Mumba said enough is enough adding that he has tolerated a lot of opposition to his rule and that time has come to put an end to the situation.
He said the rebels in the MMD have worked hard to weaken its platform from the day he was elected into office.
Dr Mumba was speaking when he closed the first ever MMD National Policy Conference at NRDC in Lusaka.
The conference which attracted over 300 participants drawn from across the country ran for two days.
Dr Mumba said he has shown tolerance to his opponents within and outside the party without retaliation.
He said time has come for the MMD to heal and re-establish itself on the country’s political landscape.
‘I don’t care how powerful you are, i will fight you till the end. I don’t care how much of a Goliath you are, David faced the biggest Goliath and as long as we are on the right side of the law, the right side of the constitution and the right side of God, we shall win this fight,’ Dr Mumba declared.
Asked if there is any possible alliance between the MMD and the ruling PF, Dr Mumba said information regarding the cooperation between the two countries will be made public at an appropriate time.
He also charged that he will be the one to lead the MMD into any alliance with any political party.
Meanwhile, Former MMD National Secretary Muhabi Lungu has questioned the legality of the resolutions made at the first ever MMD National Policy Conference held in Lusaka.
Mr. Lungu says he does not think the Conference which attracted senior party officials from around the country has the authority to make decisions on behalf of the former ruling party.
He has told Qfm News that this is because important party National Executive Committee (NEC) members such as himself and the party National Chairperson whom he says is Mr. Kabinga Pande, were not present.
Mr. Lungu has also wondered how preparations for the party’s convention which party President Nevers Mumba alluded to have commenced when the NEC has not made such a call.
