PATRIOTIC Front Secretary General Davies Chama has said that the continued wrangles in the MMD have contributed to the delay in finalizing the PF-MMD alliance.

Mr Chama said that the ruling party wants to go into an alliance with a united MMD and not a divided one.

Mr. Chama noted that the divisions in the MMD have continued to escalate, adding the PF understands the challenges the MMD is going through having gone through similar challenges last year.

Mr. Chama however, stated that even without an alliance with the MMD, there are political parties that have endorsed President Edgar Lungu including some MMD Members of Parliament.

Yesterday, Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), Nevers Mumba has charged that President Edgar Lungu had become elusive over the formation of an alliance between the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) and the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), Nevers Mumba has charged.

Dr. Mumba had revealed that he has been reaching out to President Lungu on the need for the formation of an alliance between the PF and the MMD but that the Head of State had not responded on the matter.

Dr Mumba said this in Lundazi yesterday when he met MMD members and encouraged them to remain focused and ignore calls for a national convention this year.

President Lungu had extended an olive branch to the MMD to consider forming a working alliance with the PF but the former ruling party has been engulfed in international squabbles resulting into the party splitting into factions.

President Lungu has on several occasions stated that the PF would only be able to form an alliance with a united MMD and hoped that the wrangles would be settled.

But yesterday, Dr Mumba said currently, there was no working relationship between the PF and the MMD because according to him, President Lungu had not responded to the matter.

Dr. Mumba confessed that there had been communication breakdown between the MMD leadership and its grassroots on the proposal for the formation of an alliance with the PF which he said had resulted in some MMD members endorsing the candidature of President Lungu.

  1. The trouble with Dr Mumba is that he understands there are changes afoot that might unseat him as a Leader of MMD. HE APPEARS TO BE STRADDLING two horses at once which are going in different directions. Anytime now his trouser seams will split as his legs performs wider splits!!

    Of course it is wise to wait until the problems settle. He is trying to secure a safe passage into PF by going in as Leader so that he can get a bigger reward.

    • Nervous may be very dull if he cannot read the message. The answer is that there will be no alliance because Nervous cannot deliver all his party’s MPs to PF as some have already endorsed PF and the others have endorsed UPND. Nervous has no leverage and political assets. PF have lost interest. No wonder Lungu is no longer texting back.

    • These 2 look like bali nyenga ama ule sana. Look at their complexion. this chama looks abit grey and ba lungu nabo pamenso nam cheeks ayakulu. Ukutemwa ba gelo

  2. JUST LIKE THERE WAS NO NEED TO FORM UP AN ALLIANCE WITH UPND FOR PF TO WIN THE 2011 ELECTIONS, THERE’S STILL NO NEED TO BE IN ALLIANCE WITH MMD FOR PF TO WIN THE AUGUST 2016 ELECTIONS. PF WILL WIN THE AUGUST ELECTIONS EVEN WITHOUT GOING INTO AN ALLIANCE WITH ANOTHER PARTY. IN ANY CASE, MARRIAGES BETWEEN POLITICAL PARTIES DON’T WORK- EVEN IN MAJOR DEMOCRACIES. THIS IS SIMPLY BECAUSE OF DIFFERENT POLITICAL IDEOLOGIES WHICH CAN NEVER BE COMBINED TO MAKE ONE IDEOLOGY. MOREOVER, MUMBA WANTS THIS ALLIANCE DEAD OR ALIVE BECAUSE THAT’S HIS ONLY LEFT ECONOMIC LIFE-LINE AFTER THE AUGUST ELECTIONS. HE IS THINKING THAT AT LEAST HE WILL HAVE A JOB OFFERED TO HIM AS A RESULT OF HAVING HAD GONE INTO MARRIAGE. MARRIAGE BETWEEN PF AND MMD WILL BRING A LOT OF CONFUSION AND FURTHER DEFECTIONS.

    • Boyi this August is tricky for PF. Last year infintu nilungu slogan worked very well and sympathy votes helped propel Lungu. Also the fracas in the party made Lungu look innocent and people of Zambia love people who look innocent. But Man, this time Zambians have known this dude to be lazy and lacking foresight for this country. HH lost by 20000 votes and it is also possible all those who voted for HH in 2015, will still vote for him. As for ba Lungu, Lusaka and CB will be a big battle. Hunger has really affected most Zambians and they attribute this to PF. PF in August 2016 Kaya???///

  3. PF IS BETTER OF WITHOUT THIS MARRIAGE WHICH WILL ONLY SERVE MUMBA’S ECONOMIC APPETITE. MOREOVER, NEVERS MUMBA WILL NEVER ADD ANY VALUE TO PF BEYOND THE VALUE ALREADY ADDED BY MMD MPs WHO HAVE ALREADY ENDORSED ECL AND PF.

    IFINTU NI LUNGU NAFUTI, NAFUTI.

  4. People read between the lines, Lungu would have used Rupiah to calm MMD madness down, now that Nawakwi is in the picture, a bigger factor than MMD or Nevers, he’s become reluctant to respond to calls for an alliance with MMD.

  5. @ House Fly
    You chaps really dont stop to amaze me. Do you expect Government to be feeding your families that you have willingly been implanting all over? Just work hard badala and feed your clan, there is no hunger in Zambia. And please stop this generalisation that there is hunger simply because you have mispalced priorities. Your family is your responsibility and dont expect to be fed by someone else.
    My question to you is, how many of your brothers or sisters have ever taken care of your family when they also have theirs to look after. You chaps waste you weekends drinking beer and womanising and you blow your salaries or wages you expect someone to resolve your issues, stup1d f00l. Learn to be real otherwise you will die of BP. This mentality of spoon feeding does not work and…

  6. Bwana do’nt potraiy Zambian to be lazy just because you are enjoying the loot with the people in Government,we built houses and bought a lot of cars under MMD, but we are unable to buy used engines for our broken cars because of your dollar things. Don’t think all people are fools,This year is the year to subdue the Pfools

  8. 11th august 2016 Lungu kuya bebele because most of zambian people have opened their eyes. in fact 2011 he won because he store the votes for hh and he knows better. watchout mwana

  9. ONE MAY ASK, WHY DID ECL SUDDENLY MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT HE WANTS TO WORK WITH NEVERS, AND YET IT IS BELIEVED HE HAS NEVER ENGAGED NEVERS IN A ONE ON ONE MEETING? HE MUST WAIT. NEVERS IS UNNWITTABLE, IF ECL’S INTENTION WAS TO EMBARRASS NEVERS, ITS NOT POSSIBLE.

    HE IS THE ONE WHO WILL BE EMBARRASSED.

    .THINK ECL KNOWS WHAT NEVERS POSSESSES BUT WANTED TO NEUTRALIZE HIM. HE IS TRYING TO COPY MCS IN THE DONCHI KUBEBA GAME BUT HE IS AN AMATEUR. THIS WILL BACKFIRE. NEVERS IS A MAN OF GOD. HE HAS BEEN TRYING TO PLAY MIND GAMES ON NEVERS USING MUTATI AND RB

    IF ANYONE BELIEVES CHAMA, THEY ARE IN THE SAME CLASS.
