MMD Spokesperson Raphael Nakacinda says assertions that there is confusion in the party are misplaced as the party has moved on from the confusion that rocked the former party during the adoption of the party candidate for the January 2015 elections.

Speaking in an interview Mr. Nakacinda refuted claims that the party leadership had failed to run the former ruling party as it has worked hard to restore order through inclusive dialogue among members.

He explained that the party had made great strides in reconciling the party and that he was happy that their efforts to reconcile had paid dividends as older members have returned and are participating in party programs and working towards wining the next general elections.

“The party was engulfed in confusion during the run up to the last elections as a result of the former President trying to stand on the party ticket that created a lot of uncertainties among members which led to some of our members supporting other candidates during the past election but as a Party we have made efforts in reconciling those members and a lot them have since come back and are even speaking out on behalf of the party.

We are happy to see the likes Honourable Mutati speaking on behalf of the party and continuing to reaffirm their commitment of their membership with MMD.

He reiterated the Party’s desire for unity and reconciliation among its members.

” our desire us a party leadership and the membership across the country is to see that there is unity and cohesion at national level among the leaders and that should trickle down to the grass roots.

We should stop any attempts by either our opponents from other political parties or other stakeholders like the media from creating an impression that there is confusion within the Party.”

He further said the Party will forever be proud of their record as regards to the adherence of democratic principles.

“As MMD we are proud of our record of adhering to democratic principles and any suggestions and view that people my hold that would enhance the chances of MMD in 2016 can only be arrived upon and decided through a democratic process and we will continue as MMD to respect and uphold democratic principles.

” Anybody who attempts to replay the ordeal that we experienced prior to the Presidential by -election and consequences that followed will not be tolerated. Such people will be viciously dealt with by members of our Party who have been injured and suffered a great loss as a result of the confusion created by senior members of our Party. Our appeal is that let us all hold hands together and rebuild our great party. We have no time as elections are around the corner,” he said.

  1. VERY MATURE STATEMENT FROM A VERY MATURE PARTY/ WELL SAID NAKACINDA. THOSE WHOA RE SAYING THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF CONFUSION IN MMD ARE THE VERY ONES WHO WERE THE CHIEF ARCHITECTS OF THAT CONFUSION. MUTATI HAS NEVER SUPPORTED HIS PARTY AMD SEEMED TO HAVE HAD A HIDDEN, DIVIOUS AND WICKED AGENDA EVER SINCE HE LOST TO NEVERS IN 2012. EVEN IN PARLIAMENT HE DRIVES HIS OWN PERSONAL AGENDA NOT MMD.

    HE IS ONE OF THSOE WHO HAVE DESTROYE MMD DUE TO PERSOANL SELFISH AMBITIONS AMBITIONS. HE HAD THE AUDACITY OF FLYING AROUND WITH AN OPPOSITION PRESIDENT AND NEVER ONCE TRAVELLED WITH HIS OWN PRESIDENT ON CAMPAIGNS. MUTAATI (tonga) SHOULD KEEP QUIET ABOUT CONFUSION IN MMD. YOU ARE THE WICKED POWER THAT WAS WORKING AND PULLING STRINGS . YOU CROSSED THE FLOOR. STAY IN UP AND DOWN PARTY.

  2. ITS VERY ANNOYING FOR MUTATI TO SAY THERE IS A LOT OF CONFUSION IN MMD WHEN HE WAS ONE OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECTS OF CONFUSION IN THE PARTY. HE WAS FLYING AROUND WITH AN OPPOSITION LEADER IN 20111 CAMPAIGNING LEAVING HIS OWN PARTY LEADER STRANDED.

    MUTAATI PLEASE KEEP QUIET. YOU CROSSED THE FLOOR AND WENT TO UPND DUE TO SELFISH PERSONAL AMBITIONS. EVEN IN PARLIAMENT YOU NEVER SPEAK FOR MMD. YOU HAVE YOUR OWN PERSONAL AGENDA. STAY IN UPND WHICH YOU ABANDONED AS SOON THEY LOST THE ELECTIONS AND YOU HAVE NEVER CAMPAIGNED WITH THEM SINCE BECAUSE U KNOW UPND WILL NEVER RULE THIS COUNTRY.YOU WILL NEVER WI IN LUNTE BECAUSE SOMEONE IS ALREADY CAMPAIGNING THERE. YOU LET DOWN THE PEOPLE OF NORTHERN PROVINCE. GO ND STAND IN MAPATIZYA.

  3. MUTATI HAS INFURIATED ME. MMD’S FORTUNES HAVE BEEN DESSTROYED BY THE LIKES OF MUTATI. YOU NEED TO NEED TO FORGIVE AND SUPPORT NEVERS. HE IS THE ONE WHO WAS VOTED IN AS PRESIDENT. YOU CHARACTERS BROUGHT OUT YOUR DAGGERS BECAUSE YOU FELT HE WAS AN OUTSIDER BUT HE IS AN INNOCENT MAN. ITS NOT HIS FALUT THAT ALL THOSE DEVIOUS CHARACTERS WHO HAVE STOOD IN HIS WAY HAVE FALLEN ON THE WAYSIDE.

    ITS SELFISH PEOPLE LIKE MUTATI AND RB WHO HAVE PUT THIS COUNTRY IN THE PF MESS. IF MMD HAD STOOD STRONG AND UNITED IN2011, PF WOULD BE HISTORY BY NOW. BUT BECAUSE OF SELFISHNESS YOU HAVE PROLONGED THE SUFFERING OF THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA WITH FI PF WHO DONT KNOW ANYTHING.

    THE LIKES OF MUTATI NEVER FORGIVE. MUTATI HAS NEVER FORGIVEN NEVERS FOR TROUNCING HIN IN THE INTENAL 2012 INTERNAL ELECTIONS…

  4. Did Nakachinda hear Mutati properly? Mutati said the current leadership of MMD has failed which includes the likes of you Nakachinda. Why do you want to stick to MMD like a tick sticks to an animal? I can assure you Nakachinda MMD would get some seats if your boss Nevers resigned, it could even win the presidency of Zambia. But not with Nevers at the helm.

  5. Nakachinda u should explain what u mean in details when u say MMD believes in principle of democracy. How do you claim to be democtaric under NEVERS MUMBA who dont what to go to the Convention to refresh the mandate, he is just too arrogant to be called a democrat. NEVERS MUMBA does not beliave in MMD Democratic principles he is a just a dictator who only what to hear what he wants, that is why he send ELIZABERTH CHITIKA here in Copperbelt to cheat people that the convention can only be held in 2017, that is misleading party members MMD Constitution is very clear about the Convention u dont need to manipulate and put her own thinking (chitika) as directed by NEVERS MUMBA. In short NEVERS MUMBA is not in MMD to help it bounce into govt he is a Party President for fund-raising venture…

  6. The MMD erred on their own. MMD had strong representation in Parliament and should have elected a parliamentarian as president of the party. It is simple. That said, Felix Mutati has sold off to the UPND and I do not see how he will retain his seat.
