The Zambia Police has rejected an application by a faction of the MMD for a permit to hold a National Convention in Kabwe this weekend.
Central Province Commissioner of Police Lombe Kamukoshi in a letter dated May 18th, 2016, addressed to suspended MMD National Secretary Mwansa Mbulakulima, stated that holding the convention would be tantamount to Contempt of Court as he had a pending case.
And MMD President Nevers Mumba has welcomed the rejected of an application by the Police Command.
Dr. Mumba says calls to hold the convention are illegal and anyone who attempts to attend will be cited for Contempt of Court.
He added that Mr. Mbulakulima is a suspended member of the Party and therefore has no authority to call for an executive meeting.
And when contacted by ZNBC News on phone, Mr. Mbulakulima said he was not aware of the rejection for a Police Permit to hold the Convention.
Mr Mbulakulima last week announced that the MMD would hold a national convention this Saturday in Kabwe.
