PF Government Agrees With MMD On Constitution – Nevers Mumba

Headlines PF Government Agrees With MMD On Constitution – Nevers Mumba

MMD's Dr Nevers Mumba
MMD’s Dr Nevers Mumba

Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) President Dr Nevers Mumba has said that the method selected by the Patriotic Front government for the constitution making process is the most realistic and cost-effective, bearing in mind the amount of time available before the 2016 Tripartite Elections.

Dr. Mumba declared that the selected process is the official MMD position and presented by himself during the Presidential Debates held at the Mulungushi Conference Center in the run-up to the January 2015 Presidential By-Election.

He said the reality, which some sections of society are not fully cognizant of, is that there is not enough time to fully prepare for a Referendum before the 2016 Elections. This would require a national population census and a time-consuming mass sensitization programme in all 150 Constituencies with complex logistics. A Referendum is necessary to enact the current draft constitution because of amendments contained in the Bill of Rights.

Dr Mumba further said that government is currently running a budget deficit and is unlikely to be able to fund a Referendum as desired by certain quarters. He said sourcing funding from donors is also going to be a challenge as the biggest donor, the United States government, has already ruled themselves out. Other donors may be more inclined to fund more important developmental projects.

  1. Well said Dr Mumba, thats why you have that PhD, its not for nothing, you are a politician of modern times, you are fit to be in the Obama team…..

    • Another failed attempt at job-seeking ba-Nevers. How do you think Lungu would want to associate with political and religious failures like you? Getting just one percent of the total votes cast? What value do you think your dead MMD will bring to the equally dying PF?

    • The next stop for Dr Mumba going by the vibes of his oratory will be to ABANDON his flock. This guy never ceases to amaze me. And he calls himself a pastor? The rest of us should be saints then! Watch this space the man will abandon ‘his’ MMD for a job or agree to have his MMD faction to be absorbed into a party the will offer him prospects or personal benefits. The guy just makes me sick to my stomach. Why should such treacherous people even be listened to? Given Lubinda (bless him, now MoAgric), accused of being treacherous is a man of very high moral standards compared to this ‘man of God’, actually Man of GOLD. Go away!

  2. Hahahaha, job seeker!!! New ambassador to Brazil. Go well as you sell your party to PF for 3 coins

    • It’s a sad that pipo always want to see the negative side of individual.mr mumba well done don’t be like those politicians who never see anything good from those they don’t support.those against his statement tell us your kabimba or HH position.

  3. Spoken like a spokesman for the government. How come there is always an excuse to anything important by the government, always saying there is no money or time for this or that, oh but wait we have cash for the bye elections we are causing

  4. If Zambia has to be saved and change it’s imagine globally,I’m of great conviction that they should vote for the man of a higher leadership quality like Nevers.The man is born a fighter and his charisma second to none.Keep pressing on!

    • But this a clergy who misappropriated government funds in USA.you are forgetting? Some of these politicians are up to no good.

    • What leadership quality? With Nevers style of democratic leadership, there are only two rules:
      Rule No. 1: Nevers is always right and
      Rule No. 2: In unfortunate case that Nevers is wrong, then Rule No. 1 shall apply.

  5. PF president campaigned and promised Zambians a constitution before 2016. Are you telling us that he didn’t have information that the government he was pushing himself in is broke? Politicians should know that we are not *****s. They should not take us for granted. For me PF under Lungu is performing more badly surpassing Sata’s who was also useless

  6. The constitution in 90 days after , September , 20011…now we are fast approaching 2016.
    Weo Nevers you are nervous of PF. Njala ni yoipa. RB told u kuti ‘nipase mupando kuti tiwine ulye bwino’. Weo wekana kuti yayi . Wona lomba.

  7. In case I forget or get carried away. Fellow bloggers please keep this tab and remember it when it comes to pass.

    “Nevers Mumba has sold MMD at un disclosed fee. He has been further rewarded based on his Christian Faith with a position in Israel.”

    Mark this space. A little bird whispered to me.

    Mukesa nshinina or vice versa.

    • I am not surprised that this man can sell MMD, which is not even his. The guy can actually attempted to se MMD to Akashambatwa Mbukusita Lewanika (one of the founding people or even to Chiluba all out of desperation. Such greed should not be permitted by the so called man of God or actually Man of Gold! Go away.

  8. If I compare the maturity of Nevers and the HH, Nevers id far above the under five! He says things that are realistic. True of the matter is that we don’t have time do a referendum all because of Ukwa’s attitude when he become the President! He spat in the face of the people who supported him including NGOs. Had Ukwa been serious about the constitution Zambia would have had a new people driven constitution by now! if anyone thinks we absolutely need a new constitution before the next general elections, then let us be ready not to hold them in 2016 may be move them to 2018 and make sure the new constitution is in place!!!

  9. What happened to the road map Lungu said HH stole from him? As for Nevers,well he should just change his name to Judas.

  10. What have u been paid for killing the party that brought democracy into our country? Ambassador somewhere Nevas so u can misappropriate funds like you did in Canada?

  11. IT IS IMPORTANT TO FIRST UNDERSTAND WHY A NEW CONSTITUTION IS VITALLY IMPORTANT ESPECIALLY NOW.

    MONEY OR FUNDS IS A NON ISSUE IN COMPARISON WITH THE MAGNITUDE OF THE ENACTMENT OF A PEOPLE DRIVEN CONSTITUTION.

    UNTIL THE NEW CONSTITUTION IS ENACTED ZAMBIA WILL CONTINUE DRIFTING BACK TO THE STONE AGE ERA.

    IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT THOSE WHO HAVE USED PUBLIC FUNDS TO TRAVEL AND DISCOVER HOW OTHER SOCIETIES EXCEL IN DEMOCRACY AND STANDARD OF LIVING ARRIVE BACK AT KENNETH KAUNDA AIRPORT NOT BELIEVING IF ZAMBIA IS A WAR TORN COUNTRY.

    IT IS SHAMEFUL AND IRRESPONSIBLE.

    BEING A ZAMBIAN TODAY IS NOT A VERY PROUD THING. WE HAVE BEEN MESSED UP! !
