RB and Nevers Mumba after the reconciliatory meeting

Former Republican President Rupiah Banda says the former ruling party was formed to exist and has called on members to ensure that the party continues to exist.

Speaking after meeting MMD President Nevers Mumba to iron out their differences, Mr Banda said there are some cowards who are running away from the former ruling party due to the challenges that have continued to rock the party since losing elections but that it was in the nation’s best interest to ensure the continuous existence of the party.

He said no one should allow the democracy that the forefathers fought for to be eroded by the differences in opinion because MMD was a democratic party and divergent views should be allowed.

Mr Banda also denied allegations that he was causing the confusion in the party saying he was too old to be fighting with his son.

Asked if their thorny issue of the party convention was discussed, Mr Banda said the two camps were still talking and that they will resolve the matters of the two camps in due course.

And the former Republican President has called on the press in the country to help heal the nation from the wounds of political violence that continue to rock the country.

He said that it is in every groups interest to speak against political violence because when war erupts it will affects every one regardless of their political inclination and that people will start meeting each other in different countries as refugees.

Meanwhile Dr Mumba said the MMD stands ready to make a positive contribution to the governance of the country.

He said the party will ensure that a deliberate path is created to ensure that all aggrieved members who wish to return and make a contribution through the MMD and its leadership are amicably brought on board.

The reconciliation talks had collapsed a few weeks ago after Dr Mumba refused to meet the other group when he was invited to try and chant the way forward for the party.

Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) chairman Bishop Pukuta Mwanza , Northmead Assemblies of God overseer Bishop Joshua Banda and a new addition in the person of Reverend Father Chilinda of the Roman Catholic Church chaired the meeting.

  1. But why reconcile RB and Nevers? RB is a retired politician. Our good Bishops should have reconciled the two warring MMD factions of Mutati and Nevers. Am I missing something here?

      How does one not having a Grade 12 certificate make his late father turn in his grave? Sata is turning in his grave because his son has joined people who were his enemies. Remember Chimbwi No plan Book by HH. Remember the Tongas through their online publication the watchdog how they were publicising Sata’s illness and how they celebrated when he died. Or Mulenga Sata is blaming his father for not avoiding him a chance to acquire a G12 cert.?

    • The only thing I hate more than the stinking stench of MMD and their rotten habits which I always complain about, some of these very bad habits to have sadly crept into my beloved PF is the rotten evil, s.a.t.a.n.I.c behaviour of blood thirsty UPND scum who are cowards and trouble makers that would rather see Zambia in flames just so they can rule despite them being rejected several times at the polls. Both MMD and UPND are big hopeless losers!

    • Trying hard to reconcile MMD for the benefit of Edgar Lungu and deny Zambia true leadership from UPND. A Mwanza, a Banda, a Lungu etc.

    • Am NOT SURPRISED Mumba was VERY RELUCTANT to “CHANT” the way forward!! Chanting in front of “Kanitundila?? Sure??” The only good thing to come out of this meeting, WAS TO CHECK-MATE Mutati!! He now can’t continue with his cowboy rallies around the country, becoz Chagwa will now set the dogs loose on him as the God-Father has now reigned in the “PRODIGAL LITTLE PASTOR” So MMD lives to see another day!! The strategy now, is to “SHARE THE STUFFED VOTES AROUND” i.e. instead of all stuffed votes being PF, some can now be printed in the name of MMD so that during counting, MMD will seem to be making a resurgence, ONLY TO AGREE TO A COALITION at the LAST MINUTE!! THERE is no other incentive for Mumba to be licking RB’s bottom apart from being promised some position!!

      Vote wisely…

  2. These Bishops whatever they are called are PF cadres. They all sit on the so called Tabernacle Board of Director’s National church building committee which is Chagwa’s church building. Anyway this is now the chance for Mumba to go in an alliance with PF and at least get a job.

  3. I’m also missing something. I don’t understand the composition of MMD. What I know is that all MMD MPs except for Award Kunda of Serenje ( Bata ba Kunda) are either in PF or UPND. The only MP I know remaining and fighting Nevers is Mutati.

  4. Is it a way to prepare Dr Mumba for the sale out of the part to PF? Remember that some of these so called me of God are the ones that were involved in the pushing for the agenda of Lungu to threaten Dr Scot and push Mile Sampa out of the equation when he was iligitmately /iligally decleared as PF candidate ! As Dr Banda C puts it , what is illigally gained doesnt last! Where is that thief in the name of WILLY NSANDA? Surely, he is waiting to face THE GREAT ONE, THE MAN ABOVE WHO CANT BE CHEATED! Be carefull for all what you do because in judgement even your intents and motives are going to be judged!

  5. Meaningless, there is nothing to reconcile there politically as MMD has no members to talk about and they may not even contest these elections. It has come too late bosses as you are desperate to work with visionless Edigar for your patronage. This is an empty effort im sorry.

  7. MUMBA IS LOOKING FOR HELP SO HE GET A JOB. MUMBA IS SELLOUT, FAKE PASTOR AND TRAITOR TO THE POOR AS A MAN OF GOD. NOW HE THINKS HE CAN RUN THE RB FACTION OF MMD WHICH IS ALREADY PF AND THEN HELP HIMSELF GET A JOB. THE TRUTH NEVERS, IS THAT THE RB FACTION IS ALREADY WITH PF SO YOU STILL MEAN NOTHING TO INCOMPETENT LUNGU.

  10. RB you are a coward yourself. You were the first person who ran away from MMD before the other guys left. MMD is like this today because of your love for power. You are a very greedy and selfish man. Even for the same reconcile meeting you were just pushed

  13. RB is a fool. He shud have taken he role of a statesman and help unite the nation other than misguiding the pipo. I Even doubt the clergy men who presided over the reconcilian. RB old as he is, shud have acted as a unifying factor between Mutati & Nevers, or any other warring factions to ensure peace is sustained in the nation. Cipuba camunthu.

  14. I had a lot of respect for Joshua Banda but he is now taking a position in politics which is not good for a man of his standing. He did the same with Guy scot during PF wrangles after the death of MCS.
    The Church should come in on issues that have a national character (like the political violence meeting they facilitated at Cathedral)
    The small internal issues should be left to democracy.
    If they are internal party problems in 4R or Narep, are they going to help sort out the issues there?
    Bishop as an evangelical pastor, you have lost your way!
    You have heavily been involved with PF which is not safe for the flock. Remember one of your elders was removed because of issues to do with politics and PF?The house of prayer and other PF programs,
    Rethink Pastor and you are leading the…

  16. BIT LATE FOR THE RECONCILLIATION, LUNGU HAS GIVEN THE TWO CONDITIONS BUT PEOPLE ARE MUCH WISER NOW WITH ALL THAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH. MMD IS LIKE UNIP NOW IT HAS BECOME A FAIRYTALE. BANDA SHOULD NEVER HAVE ABANDONED THE PARTY AND SIDE WITH PF AND NEVAS SHOULD NEVER HAVE HEADED THE PARTY. THE TWO HAVE CAUSED THE DEATH OF MMD.

  17. Pf has been weakened after the departure of most influential members. Mmd is a dead party that was kicked out by Pf for mainly corruption. Pf has brought poverty and misery . Many Zambians are disappointed with the way Pf is managing the country. UPND is the only party of choice right now.

    • When UPND has huge crowds you say criwds don’t matter and cannot translate into votes. By the way, the Under 5 term was used the year HH first contested the elections and is now really obsolete. Also SAD that the true sober PF chose Sampa at Mulungushi and ECL had to hijack the presidency. Today..anybody who leaves PF is not a factor. The only factors are those who join…. people who cannot win any seat like: Bwalya, Mumbi, Chama, etc

  19. Both Dr Nervers Mumba and Bishop Joshua Banda were at Hillcrest Technical Secondary School at the same time. The bishop was about 3 years behind. Nevers finished in 1978. Connect.

  22. Lungu has embraced RB to help him win the elections this year. By so doing Lungu has alienated the founders of PF party and in the process weakened PF. RB is also helping Lungu to win these elections by hook or crook. Hence the selection of an Arab printer to rig the elections in favour of ECL & PF. Thru RB Lungu has hired Ugandan Poll riggers to help him retain power at all costs. If these tactics fail to deliver victory to Lungu then the election riggers will be in trouble. The RB factor and the planned rigging of elections could backfire badly if Lungu is not careful. Time will tell!

  23. Eddy – even when Frank Bwalya , Davis Chama and Mumbi Phiri leave PF they will tell people we have left PF because we are not a factors.

  24. It cannot work. MMD must brand itself as a pro- youth party and rally behind the leadership of Howard Kunda, the only person who has won a by- election on the MMD ticket since 2011.
