RB promises to meet Nevers Mumba to bring harmony in MMD


Former president Rupiah Banda

Former President Rupiah Banda says he plans to meet with the MMD President Nevers Mumba to find solutions that will bring harmony in the party.

Mr Banda says when he returns from Uganda where he is leading a team of international observers for the forth coming elections in that country,he will meet with Dr Mumba to restore peace in the party.

Mr Banda says calls by President Lungu for reconciliation in the nation and the MMD is justified because of the squabbles the party has been experiencing.

He was speaking to the media shortly before he left for Uganda.

The former head of state noted that he has not met with Dr Mumba as was reported in the media and cited that it is unfortunate that individuals want to sow confusion in the party.

Mr Banda however said it is important that debates that are on going are mature and truthful

And the former head of state has urged Zambians to remain calm and civil ahead of the elections this year.

He said it is important that peace prevails in the country regardless of different political party affiliations and ideologies.

Meanwhile opposition MMD on the Copperbelt has called for unity of purpose in the former governing party.

MMD Copperbelt spokesperson Peter Phiri said the continued squabbles among rival factions in the party are worrying.

Mr Phiri is urging opposing groups in the party to bury their differences and unite.

Mr Phiri has also taken a swipe at some leaders in the MMD whom he has accused of using money to bring about anarchy and confusion.

Mr Phiri has told ZNBC News in a Press statement in Kitwe that MMD aspiring candidate and Lunte lawmaker Felix Mutati should sit down with Party Leader Nevers Mumba and resolve any differences.
