Suspended MMD National Secretary Mwansa Mwansa Mbulakulima has charged that MMD President Nevers Mumba acted emotionally when he announced an alliance with the UPND.
Commenting on the alliance, Mr Mbulakulima said Dr Mumba should have reflected on his political and personal life before running to UPND.
Mr Mbulakulima said Dr Mumba has not solved any of his many problems by resolving to form an alliance with the UPND.
“Mumba should have reflected through his MMD leadership bumpy journey,” he said.
Mr Mbulakulima said Dr Mumba should have first of all resolved his problems and gone as a clean man to the UPND because even where he went he would find his enemies who left him.
He said the twelve former Members of Parliament who recently endorsed and joined the UPND left the party because they did not agree with the leadership style of Dr Mumba and now he would find them in UPND.
Mr Mbulakulima said Dr Mumba’s journey from the time he took over the MMD presidency from former Republican President Rupiah Banda his journey had always been bumpy up to date.
He said Dr Mumba had only taken his problems to the UPND following his decisions to back president Hichilema.
“I know Mumba very well. I don’t think this decision has come from deep down his heart.
“He (Mumba) has acted emotionally to what happened in Kabwe at the convention. We have talked about this issue before with him (Mumba) and I know that the decision did not come from his heart but he has emotionally reacted,” Mr Mbulakulima said.
Yesterday the MMD leader decided to officially sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema with the sole purpose of working together ahead of the August 11 general elections.
The MoU stipulated that the two political parties should continue working out modalities of furthering their partnership.
Dr Mumba said the national executive committee (NEC) had convened last week in Chibombo and unanimously resolved to form an alliance with the UPND ahead of the August 11 general elections.
