MMD Spokesperson Raphael Nakacinda says his will issue a comprehensive statement on the pronouncements by President Edgar Lungu on the PF’s desire to form an alliance with the former ruling party.

Speaking in an interview Mr Nakacinda said the party has laid down procedures and that if an alliance is to be formed it has to come about due to an agreement among party members and that issue will be up for discussion during the National Executive Committee meeting which the party will be holding soon.

He said the MMD is a democratic party which practices intra party politics and that the issue of an alliance is something that needed to be discussed before any statements could be issued.

He also indicated that if the party is to go into any alliance then it will be because of mutual understanding between the two parties and not out selfish interest of individuals.

Mr Nakacinda also disclosed that his party is working on a template that will ensure the participation of all members when choosing a running mate.

He said as the mother of democracy in the country, the party’s leadership does not want to impose a running mate on the membership.

He also said the position of running mate was too important to be left to individuals to chose because it would have a bad bearing on the party and would be a recipe for intra party confusion.

President Lungu on Tuesday disclosed that he had formally contacted MMD Leader Nevers Mumba on the possibility of the two political parties forming an Alliance in this year’s elections.

Speaking when he addressed PF members in Chipata Eastern Province, President Lungu said it will be difficult for both MMD and PF to attain the 50 percent plus one threshold if they do not work together.

The President said he was looking at the day when former president Rupiah Banda and Dr Nevers Mumba would work together.

Mr Lungu who paid a glowing tribute to Mr Banda said the former head of state should continue to be praised because without him he was not going to be in State House.

“First of all let me pay tribute to president Rupiah Banda for joining hands with PF during the January 20th 2015 presidential elections by helping us to win the elections. I know without president Banda would not been the President of this country. I will be happy to see president Banda and Dr Nevers Mumba to make peace,” he said.

He said the best thing for any political party was to put the house in order for the common good purpose.

He said had been exchanged the notes through short an SMS with Dr Mumba to work together because themselves MMD cannot manage to win the general elections.

“This morning (yesterday) I was talking to Dr Mumba through SMS to say let’s work together,” he said.

President Lungu said he was not the one who caused confusion in the MMD stating that in any political party including PF there was confusion until God prevailed the situation.

He asked the party members in the ruling party to embrace new members in order for PF to manage the 50 plus one threshold of the votes.

He said he was aware that with few numbers the he cannot attain the 50 + 1 but he was looking forward for more votes from people in Eastern province.

He said currently Zambia does not deserve a re-run saying there was need for people to vote en masse for PF to avoid the same on August 11th .

President Lungu said Energy Minister Dora Siliya left MMD and joined PF in which she re-contested and won the Petauke Central parliamentary by-election convincingly.

He said there was also nothing wrong for him to appoint someone from opposition as a cabinet minister.

He said United Party for National Development (UPND) appointed Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba as vice party president stating that the moment he appointed Richwell Siamunene as defence minister, the opposition political party started talking unnecessarily.

      If HH “…is finished…..buried….”, why are so much obsessed with him? Afraid of his memory or afraid of his resurrection?
      Either way, thank you for keeping his name alive and relevant.

    • And again Pastor Mumba has become a vice president under a new constitution. He will be the running mate to Edgar. Meaning if PF wins Mumba becomes Vice president, which will give him a big chance of ascending to presidency.
      According to him sometime in the late 90s or early 2000s he said God will one day make him president.

      HH s next stop is Western province followed by Northwestern then CB Luapula Northern and Eastern..

      Police are being warned that people are angry out there They should not in any way interfere with people s rights yo assemble and welcome their beacon of political hope. People have now started to react and beating up the police in retaliation to police attacks.

    • I have predicted the formation of MMD -PF and now it seems to be here with us. After this election aftee PF is defeated nothing of MMD and PF will be left.

      On the death of MMD and PF we shall see the rise of DF and rainbow parties.

      One interesting thing is that Sampa spearheaded the BICOGA church attacks while was instrumental in the misapplication of POA as justice minister in PF. But today they are victims of the same monster they helped create and feed. How nice!

      Chama is dead quiet and it seems what ZWD said about Lungu sidelinning him is absolutely true. What is his next move? I can see him joinning DF very soon.

      VIVA UPND AND HH TEAM.

    • LUNGU HAS TO ACCEPT THE REALITY, WHETHER HE LIKES IT OR NOT, THAT THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE ARE RESOLUTE TO VOTE FOR UPND AND HH ON AUGUST 11. EVERYONE HAS SEEN THAT PEOPLE IN PF AND MMD GOVERNMENTS HAVE DISADVANTAGED MILLIONS OF ZAMBIANS OVER THE YEARS BY SERVING THEMSELVES INSTEAD OF GOVERNING THE COUNTRY AND SERVING THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. RIGHT NOW THERE IS SERIOUS CORRUPTION AND THEFTS GOING IN OUR COUNTRY DONE BY THE POLITICIANS IN POWER AND SOME TOP MMD OFFICERS.THESE PEOPLE, ENDORSED BY LUNGU, ARE BUSY LOOTING THE TREASURY. THE SELFISH DUAL CITIZENSHIP CLAUSE THEY INTRODUCED IS MEANT TO PROTECT AND BRING INTO OUR COUNTRY A LOT OF THEIR RELATIVES FROM MALAWI, DRC, MOZAMBIQUE AND ZIMBABWE TO COME AND ABUSE OUR RESOURCES, AND GO BACK TO THEIR RESPECTIVE COUNTRIES ONCE OUR COUNTRY HAS COMPLETELY…

    • These media online social news providers are not competent and efficient in terms of reporting on important matters. All they are concerned of is their own propaganda to suit what they want. There are important issues happening in Zambia and all we see are baseless articles. Take for instance the riot that broke in Choma yesterday as police wanted to block people from welcoming him. The Kambwili interview where Bemba got angry with him on his tribalism remarks in Kasama. Lungu being booed anywhere anytime he heads to! That is news that people want to hear. Now Its not news I have just told you.

If you want to thrive with principles you have to make alliance with the right party that’s gonna win and that which is respectful to ALL ZAMBIANS. If the party that is holding the “floor”right now is shaking to the extent of begging for alliance, think twice or it will be sinking sad.

    • I wonder what Mumbi Phiri meant by this, “when I go to my place in Muchinga, I normally tell them that they should not wait for our colleagues that may be Mary Phiri has gone to vote in Msanzala and we are just seated, we are going to cry. You have heard what is happening – us Bembas and those from Chipata are accused of being tribalists, when we are moved from power, do you think we are going to stay? Open your eyes, we have eyes, we see but we don’t see clearly, we have ears we hear, but we don’t hear clearly, we are asking that we should listen properly),” said Mumbi – Source from The Post

      Is this the reason we are seeing MMD and PF joining hands?

    • This year’s elections will be very interesting indeed. DF and Rainbow hope to cut away a chunk of supporters from PF mainly in the CB, Northern and Luapula. Reality on the ground is totally unsupportive of joining either of them, but streaming ahead to be part of UPND the only party with sound policies and honest leaders.

      UPND has 97% votes from Western, Southern , Northwestern, and Central provinces and 70% votes from Lusaka province guaranteed. So it only needs to get an average of at least 35% from PF and MMD stronghold to win decisively.

      Without rigging UPND has a chance of winning by more than 65% of the votes on the conservative side of things.

      So people don’t just imagine a better Zambia, make it a reality by voting UPND this August and make yourself, your family proud…

    • @mbala man
      The last thing on RB’s thieving mind is caring about Zambia. All his thoughts are about how to continue staying outside of prison walls. Promoting Lungu or some other thug for president is one strategy he is using to achieve that. I don’t know where you were at the time RB was president when he conspired with his kids to strip Zambia of its wealth. Had he been allowed to continue Zambia by now would have been reduced to a shell, skeleton, completely stripped of its money. But I am positive that soon after August when the thugs show us their backs exiting power things will get better.

    • Lungu is a thoroughly “takataka” President. He is roping in Mumba who got less votes than Nawakwi, even less than spoiled votes, a year ago. Corruption by RB and MMD brought Sata and PF into power in 2011. When did MMD launder themselves into being a credible party? PF have all the evidence of grand corruption by MMD but retaining power is everything for Lungu. We have the two most corrupt parties in the history of Zambia coming together. This is a Jemason drinking and dancing cancer calling itself President.

  4. Now the Party that PF kicked out of Government in 2011 because of MASSIVE CORRUPTION is joining the PF party in Government that has been even MORE CORRUPT since they were elected!

    With a worthless Kwacha and a COLLAPSED ECONOMY can Zambia survive a DOUBLE DOSE of plunder, looting and stealing? PF has already borrowed TEN BILLION DOLLARS that has disappeared and will have to be repaid by the poor Zambian taxpayers.

    With copper prices down and miners jobless, where is this money going to come from?

    Maybe Lungu will start selling Zambians as slaves again, or just sell the whole country to the IMF.

    After only 50 years our Independence has been stolen from us by these criminals!

  5. There’s a pungent smell of fear in the thug party, and panic. Ati Sampa isn’t a factor but they are spending sleepless nights over his dumping them. Shame. Appealing to rejects and criminals for help won’t work. MMD is dead. If Lungu is wise he should throw in the towel already and quit to avoid a humiliating defeat by HH.

  12. De ja vu..once again Mumba auctions his party in exchange for vce presidency. This time its the once mighty MMD, which remains a shell of its former self. Meanwhile staunch MMD members (Mutatis, pandes etc) still plan a hostile takeover to salvage whats left of this once mighty force before man of god totaly annihilates it by selling it to PF.

    Panic also grips the ruling party with the establishment of a break away fraction lead by young and ambitious Miles Sampa who threatens to bite off a huge chunk from their traditional strongholds.

    It is seemingly plain sailing for the largest opposition party but they still face an uphill battle trying to counter the negative PF propaganda which is taking its focus away from consolidating its base.

    • ECL is not saying he cant win the election, he can win and will win but what he doesn’t want is waste tax payers money by having a second round in case he does not get the 50% +1 vote passed in the new constitution. The truth is that no one can be able to get that threshold in the first round if there are no pacts. The other point is that MMD became divided when RB supported PF while some of the MMD MPs supported either UPND, PF or MMD. so ECL wants to avoid that division by bringing Nevers and RB together to support him for the presidency so that he can win in the first round!!!

    • Iwe Mwanalunga, you are truly not a politician, just like most HH supporters. MMD despite losing elections to PF in 2011 had votes except they had less than PF. To date there are people who are still members of MMD and who still believe that MMD can still make a political come back. These are the voters that His Excellency the president wants to tap in.
      If let’s assume HH still continues being stubborn, think and believe that his UPND can attain the 50% +1 votes in the coming elections on its own, then he is disillusioned as even Madam Edith Nawakwi will soon be power brokering. The Zambian elections will never be the same again, even the insults some parties trade and hip on other parties will backfire.

He will do it again because you guys are still trying to win via SP. It will not work. Try rebranding UPND.

  18. I sense a “YES”. However, it is good to note that Nervers Mumba does not have control of MMD. It is a tricky position because this would mean working together in a run-off election. In the first round, it will be beneficial for the PF and MMD to run independently. UPND can also make use of Nawakwi in a similar manner.

    Daniel PULE CDP – 3,293
    Ludwig SONDASHI FDA – 2,073
    Peter SINKAMBA GREENS – 1,410

  27. UPND, why should you waste your time questioning the credibility of the PF and MMD alliance? 50%+1 clause involves politics of convience, not conviction. They will take their alliance a notch higher and rush for the smaller parties as you, UPND, stick with your ego to run it singlehandedly. Politics of winner-take-all do not apply here. The earlier you woe your like-minded partners and hit the ground running, the better. Everything else is null and void, an exercise in futility.

  30. Those who are condemning Lungu for courting MMD to win elections should stop and understand that as president he has a duty to keep his party in power! Even HH was courting MMD for Jan 2015 by-election it is just that things did not work well. How come you fail to mention the fact that Mutati, Lungwangwa,Musokotwane,Muchima,Katele who supported and campaigned for HH in Jan 2015 were also MMD(the same MMD that Lungu is courting). Lungu is just being transparent on this! HH could also be doing the same thing albeit quietly. In fact HH started courting MMD immediately after the alliance with PF broke down.After August 11 as the winner may emerge with a big majority, and that is what Lungu is targeting not pride based on past records that did not deliver victory!

  31. No comment, the President of PF has stated that he has approached his counterpart in MMD to an alliance. Let’s see how it pans out, it’s a waste of time and space to be speculating like uPMD cadres.
    But then you can understand uPMD frustrations, they did announce their desire for an opposition alliance and effectively got a snub in return. Tell HH to approach other party leaders using sms like Edgar has done……kikikikiki.
    When uPMD called for an opposition alliance, didn’t I advise uPMD cadres that it would be a non-starter because no one would like to work with them (except Mr Milupi) because of the tribal tag which they have not clarified since 2005 almost 11 years now. I also advised them that PF and MMD are a more natural fit as an alliance because PF is an off shoot of MMD,…

    • That is what you were saying even last time. Your part and your hh have no respect for elderly people. This is culturally stupid and that is why some people come wider you people to be uncultured beyond repair. The only remedy is to stop your insulting and disrespectful hh from coming to plot 1 and even in 2016 hh will be defeated. You only win at insulting .

    • I and my household as mother of 3 young adults are giving ECL and PF our vote. I’m not taking chances with this politically untested HH. So call me mad but I’m convinced he is not suitable because of the pomposity, regional allignment and suspicious wealth acumulation. I repeat, we are voting for ECL = 4 votes!

  33. I also advised uPMD that PF and MMD are a more natural fit as an alliance because PF is an off shoot of MMD, and they probably still drink tea together. The PF alliance with RB in January 2015 should be seen in that light, even the apparent feud in MMD was a family affair between brothers and beyond the control of uPMD. Those who have eyes should have observed the warm brotherliness between Mr Sata and RB even after the former defeated the latter for President of Zambia, and even though the mmembers of the Urinal Post tried hard to alienate the two, shamefully unsuccessful. That friendship naturally continued from Mr Sata to Edgar Lungu.

  34. Mr Kanganja said in a statement issued in Lusaka yesterday that he met United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema and senior party members of the opposition party to discuss their concerns over the application of the Act.
    He said the UPND should comply with the provision of the law and observe peace and order.
    “I have taken note of concerns raised by the UPND leadership and I thanked them for promoting dialogue and I encouraged them to feel free to engage the police command each time they have concerns,” he said.
    Mr Kanganja said the UPND will not be stopped from exercising its freedoms as long as the opposition party complies with the provisions of the law.
    And police have advised political parties to abide by the law and desist from premature…

  36. And one thing which underfive cadres and their leaders need to learn is that the January 2015 alliance between RB’s MMD and Edgar’s PF did not result in RB becoming the Vice President of PF. Their interests are not so narrow as in uPMD where GBM had to be made vice president in order to win his support. Remember that the planned alliance between PF and uPMD failed because uPMD wanted their leader to be the president of the alliance. Anything else was not possible because of the unwritten rule in uPMD about who can be leader of uPMD (and any alliance with them).

  37. The problem with some opposition political leaders is that they are too pompous and they think they can do it alone which is not the case this time! Come 11th August, 2016 will send their party into distinction.

  38. @ kwa george, MMD is MMD, there is nothing like RB’s MMD or Mumba’s MMD, those are non-existent differentiations seen from the half blind eyes of blind uPMD. Take it from me, PF is an off shoot of MMD, and there is more likelihood for the two to forge an alliance between them. All those MMD members who seemed to support uPMD in January 2015 are much wiser now and will no longer be available to uPMD. In short the political ground has shifted, especially after edagr has proved himself to be a man of steel after inheriting so many problems and agreeing to face them squarely. Some underfives would probably be crying to their mums. Want a hard tested and proven leader? You got it, Edgar is there!

  40. I would not meet Mr Sata to dialogue with him national issues or peace in the nation because I know that he can call for my arrest before we finish the meeting as I can tell him the truth that might injure his feelings,”.

    “The best I can do if I want to dialogue with him is to write to him and not meeting him in person, never, I have been writing to him and responses have been given, I shall continue doing that meeting him will lead to my arrest,” said Mr Hakainde.this is what has made him to fail in the current political scenario coz he never wanted to get blessings from the elders nowonder why he is a failed politician

  41. I would have thought MMD no longer have a single well, let alone a spring, out of which to draw water from. Am I wrong? Which geographical areas do they, at least, still have a resemblance of a footing? Which are their strongholds?

  42. The 50 percent plus 1 is here and it is the high time Zambian political parties came to grips with this reality. It does not make sense therefore for parties such as MMD, FDD, Heritage, Narep, APC, Mulongotis party ( I am afraid I do not know its title), Rainbow, the newly formed DF, Sondashi’s, Magande’s etc should go it alone. They will never make it. And it will also not do for everyone of these leaders wanting all to be running mates. For PF, I hope whichever parties they go along with, leaders from those parties will not hold at ransom with this “ I am running mate or nothing”. The news therefore that PF is talking with MMD to go together is good news indeed. And we all hope Nevers will not demand to be running mate or nothing. We hear that’s how the RB candidature in the last…

  43. @ it’s not a laughing matter

    Well…one hand washes the other my dear friend…if it’s all done in good faith and Dr Mumba is willing to work with PF and help Zambia..i think it won’t be a bad idea if he is the running mate for Edgar…I guess people thought the 50 plus 1 was a joke….but now we all know that Zambian politics will never be the same again…
    PF+MMD+FDD= 50 plus 1 no doubt……or PF+Rupiah MMD and Nevers MMD= 50 plus 1 no doubt.

    Real drama will unfold once the running mates have been chosen

    2016 vote(PF) Edgar
