MMD Acting spokesperson Pastor Reuben Sambo has clarified that the order by Judge Mubanga Kondolo (SC) was a refusal of an interim injunction that the MMD was seeking to restrain certain individuals from holding meetings in the name of the party.

He said at the moment the party is preparing for the 2016 elections and the decision of NEC to have the convention in 2017 remains unchanged. As such, MMD members are encouraged not to be swayed by any misinterpretations in the media.

On Friday, Daily Nation reported that the Lusaka High Court ruled that was nothing to stop the Felix Mutati group in the MMD from holding a convention to elect the next president of the party  because there was no documentary evidence before court to support the fact that MMD president Nevers Mumba was elected for a five-year tenure of office in April 2012, and therefore a party convention could be held.
Lusaka High Court Judge Mubanga Kondolo said there was also no evidence to support the notion that the convention could only be held in 2017.
In what the paper described as a landmark decision which has far-reaching consequences for the former ruling party which has been rocked by leadership squabbles, Mr Justice Kondolo allowed MMD Lunte Member of Parliament Felix Mutati and 11 others to hold a party convention to choose the president of the party.
