Headlines Felix Mutati vows to remain in MMD

LUNTE MMD Member of Parliament (MP) Felix Mutati has vowed to stick to the former ruling party because of his strong conviction that he has what it takes to help in its rebuilding process.

Mr Mutati, who has urged all members to remain united, said he believed that the party was still strong and would make a positive impact during the August 11, general election.

The Lunte parliamentarian said this in Kitwe when he addressed scores of MMD members.

Mr Mutati, who was in Kitwe to carry out an assessment of the MMD, was impressed by the massive turnout of people whose enthusiasm had given him the spirit to forge ahead.

He condemned the suspensions and appointments of people without any form of elections as this was having a negative effect on the party.

He said his decision to remain in the MMD stemmed from his strong conviction that the party needed transformation in order to marshal a good number of votes during the elections.

He said an alliance with other parties would not make sense if the MMD was not going to make any meaningful contributions to it.

“My position on the issue of alliance is that I will go with whatever decision the party is going to make, but what I believe is that when going into an alliance, there has to be something one should contribute,” he said.

He urged MMD members to refrain from acts of violence that had recently characterised the political arena in Zambia.


  1. Hmmm, in what capacity was Mutati addressing his Kitwe fellow members of the MMD? It sounds like he has already taken over the presidency of that dead and buried party from Nevers Mumba. It’s hallucination for Mutati to think that his party can make an impact against the likes of HH in the August election. He needs to ask Edgar Lungu about this. No wonder he’s forcing the police to fight his political battles.

  2. He never had this strong conviction when he campaigned for UPND in the last election. Now that he has been banished from MMD and he has no chance of being adopted by UPND, the man is clutching at straws. Looks like his political career is in its 11th hour.

  3. MMD might not make it through the 08/11 polls but remeber that when UPND/FDD or God forbid, PF goes in power, we still need an opposition to be taking checks & balances

  4. Again, the Zambian politicians have not failed to baffle. This is exactly the UNIP template when it was floundering before going belly-up. When are we going to severe ties with the past and forge ahead in a new direction kansi? At this rate even the little shreds of credible opposition we had will disappear in the weed-chocked Kafubu river of political demise! Awe mwe!
