MMD National Secretary Mwansa Mbulakulima says the Party has reached the point of no return regarding the holding of the Party National Convention which he announced two weeks ago.

And Mr Mbulakulima said the talks which were held by former Republican President Rupiah Banda and Party President Nevers Mumba was between the two regarding their individual differences and not that of the Party.

Mr Mbulakulima said the issue of the convention is non-negotiable and that it will go ahead with or without Dr Mumba and that all the Provinces were geared and ready to attend the convention on the announced date.

“The meeting which Dr Mumba asked for was between him and the former Head of State were Dr Mumba believes that there are some personal differences between the two and we are not preview to that but for us a party of which I am the National Secretary our position still stands.

“The issue of the convention stands, Dr Mumba took the matter to court and the writing is very clear from the Courts of law and we have gone very far in organising the for the convention. All the ten Provinces are geared,” he said.

He accused Dr Mumba of what he termed “desperate action” to try and stop members from organizing by writing to all the Police Stations in the country of which he commended the police for refusing to take sides on the matter.

Further Mr Mbulakulima explained that Dr Mumba tried to influence the decision of Mulungushi University after he heard that he gone to inquire about the charges for using the facility for the forthcoming convention.

He said Dr Mumba he sent the acting party Spokesperson Reuben Sambo to tell management to refuse to grant them the use of the facility and management at the institution refused to grant them their wish.

He called on members not to be deceived that the meeting was for the party because the meeting was meant to iron out the differences between Dr Mumba and the former President.

Meanwhile Mr Mbulakulima has cautioned both the PF and the UPND not to be lied to that Dr Mumba was representing MMD when discussing any possible alliances saying MMD will only negotiate for possible alliances when they come from the convention.

He said Dr Mumba can only talk on his own behalf hence anyone engaging with him should bear that in mind.

On reports that he had a secret meeting with UPND President Hakainde Hichilema Mr Mbulakulima said they were aware about all the maneuvers that Dr Mumba has been making to try and meet his opposition counter part including arrangements for the two to meet outside Zambia.

Mr Mbulakulima was reacting to the meeting which was held between Dr Mumba and former President Banda in which they later announced that there was no rift between them.

The meeting followed allegations that Mr Banda was funding factions from within the party to disturbalise it.

Mr Mbulakulima has since invited Dr Mumba to the convention scheduled between the 20th and 22nd May.

  4. MMD is a spent force. They r not even worth wasting time on. Convention o no convention, what’s left is factions of disoriented individuals. We saw this with UNIP. Most zedians ve fogoten about unip, until they hear 1 individual announce a running mate – which make 2 pipo to the party. MMD has reached same level. Same like FDD. O of them shells of there formerselves!

  5. MMD had a perfect start in 1991, with a formidable team of technocrats and abundant goodwill from the populace who had child like faith in them. We hoped they would take Zambia straight to the stratosphere economically. Little did people understand that they had empowered hardcore white collar criminals without a shred of conscience. After twenty years of systematic plunder and currently exacerbated by the most clueless and evil party Zambia has known, PF, the country has gone back to and past square A. Anyone who entertains even a fugitive thought of the possibility of MMD bouncing to power and must be given a chance again is retarded. This party is dead.

  6. Why should mbulakulima feel he is more MMD than DR Mumbai? I thought the issue of convention should be in UPND not MMD. The problem with Mbulakulima and Mutation is that they are no longer needed in their constituencies so being in MMD leadership is the only way to survive. You are now like Mulenga Sata who can defend his father’s legacy in other pipo’s party Shame!

  7. poke – even when he is sidelined in all decision making. Very dull comment. BY the way PF is not for Sata but the people of Zambia we chungwa.

    All political parties are meant to serve Zambians and not families. He has gone where he can express his views without anyone accusing him of doing this or that because it it his fathers party.

  8. You have all heard of the product life cycle – introduction stage, growth stage, maturity stage, decline stage. MMD is in the decline stage, there is no meat on the bone any more, there is no bone as well. the following are time wasters and in complete decline – Mutati, Nevers, Mbulakulima etal. Friendly advice, dissolve the party immediately.

  12. Did you notice one thing about Zambian political parties? There is ill preparation of leaders to take over their parties, especially when faced with untimely incidents, like when the leader dies, the one who takes over the party is found wanting, this is a clear case of I’ll preparation my the sitting leader. This has been demonstrated by those who took over after the untimely death President Levy & President sata, respectively. There is great need for sitting Presidents to prepare for eventualities, by preparing their successors in accordance to the wisdom imparted to them, in running the affairs of the state, including the visions of there parties. The ability to impart knowledge to others unselfishly, is the evidence of true leadership.

  13. Dr. Mumba must be supported my well meaning MMD in the quest to align it to PF because Dr Mumba being a pastor carries with him a moral massage for zambia and the entire world . Mr mbulakulima must for once stand still and Think about the benefit of peace and the benefit to work with the Pf to protect the much needed intrest of the poor for which the Pf is an ambassador .

  14. Mbula ntweno, kabiye fye mukulima, you will find your younger brother cultivating and sowing for you, There is nothing news worthy here, what happened to UNIP will happen to you and what is happening to you is soon to happen to your partner. The bag manufacturers need to increase production as we anticipate a lot of packing back to the villages.

  15. MBULAKULIMA IS EMBARRASSED THAT THEIR GOD-FATHER DID A ‘DONCHI-KUBEBA’ KUNYUNYA ON THEM AND THEY ARE IN TOTAL CONFUSION.

    WHICH REGALIA WILL THEY USE NOW AT THE CONVENTION? THE TRUTH IS MBULAKULIMA IS BARKING A WRONG TREE AND NOW HAS NO INSIDERS IN MMD TO TELL HIM WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON. FOR THOSE OF US THAT KNOW, ITS NOT THAT NEVERS HAS BEEN TALKING TO HH. ITS THE OTHER WAY ROUND. LET HIM ASK THE MEDIATORS WHO HAVE BEEN GOING TO DR. MUMBA’S HOUSE TO TALK TO NEVERS.

    THESE PEOPLE HAVE FOUND HH EMISARIES ON A DAILY BASIS EVEN GBM LINING UP PLEADING TO SEE NEVERS.
