MMD President Nevers Mumba says the resignation of his 11 parliamentarians is a relief to the party.

Dr. Mumba says 10 of the parliamentarians are the same persons that supported the UPND in the January 20, 2015 presidential elections and there move does not mean anything to the party.

He told ZNBC News in Lusaka today that the 11 parliamentarians were already rejected together with the UPND in the previous elections and their union will not change the political landscape in the country.

Dr. Mumba reminded the 11 parliamentarians that Zambians will judge and vote against them together with the UPND in the August 11 general election.

He said the departure of the 11 members is insignificant and that their move leaves room for genuine MMD members to contest their seats.

Dr. Mumba said the MMD is still strong in Western and North Western provinces with a high chance of returning the seats.

Eleven MMD MPs on Monday defected to the UPND.

  1. I wonder who was rejected between and UPND and MMD in 2015 if UPND had more votes than MMD and UPND did better than ever?

    • “the 11 members is insignificant and that their move leaves room for genuine MMD members to contest their seats”…. Should rephrase to “their move leaves room for genuine MMD members to contest their seats and lose the election”…any sane person knows YEMU-YEMU Dee is the UNIP of today…but kudos to Nevers for the continued faith in dead cow to provide milk

    • Nevers, you are living up to your low levels of leadership qualities, who is still following you at this stage. You are not worried when the party is losing members.

    • I sympathise with the good Dr, if you were in position how would you deal with all this mess surrounding him? We all know he doesn’t have weaith to talk to about, he’s probably digging himself a grave financially but he’s powerless to look in the mirror and say to himself enough is enough I’m done. His wife needs to drag aside him and tell him a few home truths because on his own he’s incapable of making sound decisions, the lure of power and has mula tainted his judgment.

  2. Putting a brave face on. Relieved is probably not the sinking feeling in your gut but chin up until the reality sinks in that the mountain just got steeper. You’re tougher than me. I would be curled up in a corner bawling like a week old baby.

    • @ A Phiri…. Muuzeni uyu munthu ni olimba on the outside.. I’m certain when he gets back home Florence will be hard put to console him as he will be “Bawling like a week old baby!” In the morning he will put a brave face and suspend Howard Kunda for talking about a convention!

  4. Truth be told: Dr. Mumba has failed as leader of MMD. It was a serious lack of principle and serious opportunism for Dr. Mumba to have decided to back PF, a party MMD claimed had destroyed the Zambian economy. For real PF has destroyed the economy. So Dr. Mumba wants PF to continue mismanaging the economy? MMD, as a party is finished. After Aug 11, 2016, MMD will be like UNIP. Watch the space! Zambians are angry and they are right! They deserve better!

  6. Spot on Nevers Mumba. The 11 are tribalists. And so are we. We will vote on tribal lines 11 Aug. Wako ni wako. Namugala has pledged support for Lungu and so is Austin Chewe..just to illustrate my point. This election will be about tribes. It sound silly but that is how it will be.

  8. Nevas, you are no fit leader. If I were president of a party and I lost 11 of my key members I would be worried because then I would think how many votes will I lose. Rember those MPs were elected by voters and for them to have won surely the convinced the people on something. They will tell the people that elected them and convince them to join the party they have defected to. So mr preacher man, how many votes will your party lose? I have said it before and i will say it again, You are just a stooge put into MMD to destroy the party; yOU WERE NEVER A MEMBER OF MMD MEMBER. WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR PARTY NCC? OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT? TRANSFERED TO BOTSWANA LIKE YOU DID YOUR CHURCH? BWANA LEAVE MMD TO IT S TRUE MEMBERS AND SEEK THE FACE OF GOD AND GO BACK TO THE PULPIT. YOU WERE CALLED BY…

  9. One thing I love Mumba about is that he is to a large extent not antagonist but speaks with love and maturity. That is what we need from our leaders, however to I situate that the defection is meaningless is a cry of a dead horse. MMD is now history and lives in political grave yard in the family of the oblivion. You will see what upnd will do to both your newly found love in Lungu and mmd

  10. IT IS VERY INTERESTING TO WATCH WHAT IS UNFOLDING IN THE MMD. NEVERS HAS FOUUGHT NON-STOP BATTLES AGAINST THE LOSERS WHOM HE WALLOPED IN 2012. NOW GOD HAS REMOVED THEM FOR GOOD…THEN AGAIN THESE LOSERS HAVE NO SHAME. IF MMD WINS IN AUGUST, THEY WILL UNASHEMEDLY CRAWL BACK WITH CROCODILE TEARS.

    NEVERS WASUKA WASHALA KUMAMTWI TONDOLO.

    FELLOW ZAMBIANS, IF WE HAVE ANY INSIGHT, THIS IS THE MAN TO RULE ZAMBIA, NOT ECL…DEFINATELY NOT HH.

  13. It’s sower grapes the ones that highlight tribe are the ones that are tribalist themselves it looks like it’s the only card that they ve to dongle or wave unfortunately it doesn’t sell anymore to the ordinary zambian try something else people are not naive anymore.They are tired of the tribal and violence being perpetuated by the same tribalist cos they have it @ the back of their mind that they are the superior ones therefore tag and brush other tribes with whatever colour they want.They are not any special we know them by their deeds they are so hypocritical that they even hide themselves in Church to pretend that they are the most humble and yet very cunning only to deceit the vulnerable whom they ve taken for granted.

  15. 11 MPS leaving a party is a very big lose Nevers stop living in denial because some more will leave your party those people’s supporters have also left you mind you. You have truly messed up the MMD and you will be remembered as such.

  17. Loosing those 11 tribal traitors is a blessing for MMD. An opportunity to reorganize and link up with PF to wallop them and consign them to the tribal cartel of history to which they belong. They never accepted Nevers from the beginning and always aligned themselves to their tribal shonongo leader. Nevers should be celebrating.

    • It’s not a blessing it’s losing the national character every one fond of MMD used to sing about.

  19. Ba Nevers Mumba has completely destroyed MMD due to his leadership style. There is a strong rumour that most of the remaining MMD Mps will defect to PF. Ba Nevers Mumba might remain with no-one to finance the MMD party. Just watch the space.
    Full time politics was not meant for Pastors or Priests, better to remain where God wanted you to be – in the pulpit. It’s sad to see how Ba Nevers Mumba has finished the once mighty MMD and how our friend Mr Frank Bwalya is busy damaging the image of PF.

  20. This reaction from the ex-pastor, when normally he should worry about such a thing, he is almost happy about the exodus from his already dead party, I mean what does it say about his mind? I am always confounded by paradoxes like this one. What kind of politicians do we have in our country? If you say this guy is sadistic or psychotic or suffers from some deadly mental problem I will agree.
