Nevers Mumba reading The Post newspaper
Nevers Mumba

Opposition MMD leader Nevers Mumba this afternoon stayed away from the much publicised reconciliatory meeting with former President Rupiah Banda.

The meeting which proceeded without Dr Mumba was chaired by Northmead Assemblies of God Presiding Bishop Joshua Banda and was held at Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia offices on Kamloops road in Lusaka.

Mr Banda, suspended MMD Spokesman Rapheal Nakacinda and suspended MMD National Secretary Mwansa Mbulakulima including other senior party officials attended the meeting.

Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia Executive Director Reverend Pukuta Mwanza also attended the meeting.

And addressing Journalists after the closed door meeting which lasted for an hour, Northmead Assemblies of God Presiding Bishop Joshua Banda said it is a pity that Dr Mumba did not attend the first meeting especially that he is key to the reconciliation.

Dr Banda said reconciliation is inevitable if the MMD is to survive.

“We are seeking to bring reconciliation so we began the process and we will take time to talk to everyone who is important in this process and we are now identifying all the parties in this process,” Dr Banda said.

He added,” We believe that the MMD as a former ruling party has an important role to play and what goes on with them is important for the country.”

  1. What is the role of Bishop Banda in all this?
    Critics may say, he is using his office to propel Edgar’s agenda?

    • Pukata Mwanza and Joshua banda are agents of PF and are using wako wako ni wako to ensure MMD forms an alliance with PF to help Lungu cling to power when he(Lungu) has failed.Abashi hypocrites.The issue this is about the economy.HH a program.

    • Bishop Banda should know these are dynamics of groupings and he should have let this mess up take its natural course it’s the only way the MMD would have come out stronger so for sure this stinks Rupiah and ECL … Remember the condition he gave to form an alliance, he wanted a united MMD. Because a split one in the last election struggled to beat spoilt votes

    • Since it’s women’s day tomorrow let me give credit to one woman Namugala who kept hammering at the fact that Nevers was a wrong chap altogether for the MMD. She was called all sorts of names but alas!! I actually Love the silence she has now taken over this issue. Big up Women!!

    • Nevers Mumba is a lonely man, he expelled everyone in MMD, I feel sorry for him,,,,but most important I think Never Mumba feels Joshua banda is small to him to be on the centre of the meeting

    • I see tribalism in Joshua Banda’s activities. Edgar Lungu. Rupiah Banda. Joshua Banda. First, it was his Northmead Assemblies of God church that was associated with another scandal where his bishop attempted to bribe a Post newspaper journalist for the sake of advancing Edgar’s interests. Now this. How come he never called for reconciliation between Miles Sampa and that Chanda guy who claimed ownership of the DF? Surely, that also has implications for the country? Why is it that his efforts are only in a direction that advances the role of PF? It is people like Banda who are giving the church in Zambia a bad name.

    • BANDA, MWANZA, BANDA !!!!!!!!, ARE THE KEY NAMES FOUND IN IT. WHY NOT INVITING OTHER PASTORS LIKE IMAKANDO, LIBINGI, KAZHILA? IT IS NOT RECONCILIATION BUT WANT TO HAVE MUMBA MEET BANDA WHO IS MUMBA’S ENEMY NUMBER ONE. MONEY MONEY, MONEY.

  2. And this is your Pastor who is always preaching about reconciliation to the masses in church about what the bible says…I hope the docile blind followers are learning a thing or two from this.

  3. What kind of pipo are these who cant have respect for fellow human beings? surely how do you describe men of God, president, ministers as *****s, fools? This is why i appeal to other tribes not to vote a Tonga untill they learn to respect other tribes.

  5. They’ve lost the plot surely. Why is Banda heading this instead of Dr Mumba who is Party President. Wasn’t Banda defeated last election when he had his nomination legally removed by courts?

    Of course Dr Mumba will not play underling!

  6. Nevers himself told us he was reconciling with Rupiah. The problem here is 1. Mbulakulima seems to be ahead of Nevers 2. Nevers views Joshua as a junior.
    Nevers as usual is being petty.

  7. When MMD had difficulties in January 2015 elections, Bishop Banda confined himself to reconciling PF and ignored MMD because Nevers Mumba was at an advantage over Rupia Banda. Bishop Banda put on the colour of a pastor and went to cry with Guy Scott and Lungu reconcile. The whole business was Wako Ni wako abd was aimed at enthroning Lungu who would in turn give him a position. Lo and Behold, Bishop Banda’s Church, yes, his offices (Whether at his instruction to his Jr pastors or not) have been used to Work against those perceived to be Lungu’s Enemies especially Mmembe. He has been rewarded publicly by being made a Bishop of the Church of the country committee (This man has never built a big church unlike his friends like Imakando, Fortune Mwiza, Pastor Walker at Family life Church or…

  8. That’s where Bishop Sky Banda stood out among the Pentecostal Bishops. He never chased after the media or anything that cast him on limelight. And why should these reconciliations be publicized in media. Counselling of any form offered by Church ministers must be confidential. Never Mumba is their colleague, they don’t have to embarrass him like that in public as to why he never showed up. I have a feeling Nevers wasn’t given a detailed briefing about this meeting. I doubt his fellow pastors even spoke to him personally. Maybe they just sent the word through Bowman Lusambo.

  10. WISDOM SINKAMBA – Tongas are just hard working people. Just accept that this is a fact. Secondly the subject matter at hand herein, is Joshua Banda who have been told by Nevers Mumba that you can not fool every person. Joshua Banda is now just a campaign Manager for PF. I have respect for Imakando as he has refused to be used by some politicians who have lost direction. Viva HH, Viva UPND

  11. I Love Mumba – It is funny that MMD wants to move away from Democracy to negotiations! Joshua Banda should meet the factions separately and then together.

  12. This has got nothing to do with Ecl,the trouble with most of you is that you are so obsessed with Lungu such that anything that happens in this country you link it to him. Truth be told most of you won’t even be here to cast your votes in August. HH has destroyed the once powerful UPND under Mazoka which had 47 MPs and now only has 26 with two vice presidents being Patrick chisanga and sakwiba sikota who they got rid of because of not being tonga. Garry nkhombo called zambian voters *****s when UPND lost the last elections, munkombwe was on TV when he was saying it was time for a tonga and not any other tribe to rule and HH was busy smiling. ECL will still win the election!!!

  13. I smell a rat in these so called reconciliation talks. Its a trap for Nevers. These people have never accepted Nevers as President. Nevers be careful and don’t trust RB or Mutati. Its a trap. Wikayako. These are crooked men who can do anything for money.

    You have done a lot forMMD and they were just watching doing nothing. What do they want now? Walk away from these fake talks. Its a trap. Is Rev Pukuta Mwanza neutral enough to be a a go-between? He recently announced that Zambia is not ready for a Christian President. Imagine! And Nevers you are the only Christain residential candidate. So he was saying Zambia is not ready for you. Dont waste time with these talks.

  14. THESE TALKS SEEM STRANGE. IT MAY BE A TRAP AND NEVERSSHOULD BE CAREFUL.

    IS REVEREND PUKUTA MWANZA NEUTRAL EOUGH TO BE A GO-BETWEEN? A FEW WEEKS AGO, HE SAID THAT ZAMBIA IS NOT READY FOR A CHRISTIAN PRESIDENT. NEVERS DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME, JUST CONTINUE CAMPAIGNING. DONT EVEN TRUST ECL.

    HE SHOULD HAVE HAD PRIVATE TALKS WITH YOU BEFORE MAKING THAT ILL-CONCEIVED STATEMENT. HE HAS FUELED PROBLEMS IN MMD. PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR A GOOD PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO SEES A LIKELY PRESIDENT.

  16. Funny reconciation! It is like having a wedding without a bride. How can a recociliatory meeting between RB and Nevers Mumba take place without one of the principal people?
