MMD National Secretary Mwansa Mbulakulima has assured members that former Republican and Party President Rupiah Banda is not coming back to take over the party but to try and unify it.
Mr Mbulakulima said the former President’s heart bleeds when he sees what is happening in the party which made him President hence would like to play his party in trying to harmonise it.
He said his role is to meet stakeholders and all the parties Involved so that a solution is found to stop the infighting that has characterized the party since losing the 2011 general elections.
“There is no possibility that Mr Banda wants to take over the leadership of the party. That one I can give you a categorical answer, it shouldn’t even cross your mind that he wants to take over the leadership of the party. He wants to help the party that made him President of this country. His heart bleeds when he sees wrangles in his party and he is trying to see if he can play his little role in unifying the party,” Mr Mbulakulima said.
Mr Mbulakulima also warned that if the party continues in its current state of self destruction the consequences my be unbearable as it would it up without neither an MP nor Councillor.
“If we are going to continue quarrelling then the party will remain fragmented and what you are going to see is what we experienced in January and ultimately we might have no MP, we might have no Councillor because the might has gone down.It is prudent that as leaders that we collect things and let everyone on board if we are to be counted as a party that is credible and as a party craving for leadership in this country,” Mr Mbulakulima said.
