Nevers Mumba

MMD president Nevers Mumba says his party has resolved to return to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to declare that he is pulling out of the presidential race.

Dr Mumba said ever since his decision to form an alliance with the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), his party had resolved to have one flag bearer in the August 11 elections.

He said the UPND and its leader Hakainde Hichilema would be the main body of the alliance and that the MMD would help the team in ensuring that the alliance records victory.

“We will soon go to the ECZ to reverse the decision on me standing and we only hope they could refund us so that we can use the money for campaign logistics,” he said.

Earlier, ECZ spokesperson Cris Akufuna said as far as the commission was concerned, Dr Mumba was standing as MMD president in the August 11 elections and that he had paid a deposit.

And Mr Akufuna said the nomination fees were non-refundable and that whoever paid should not expect a refund after a change of mind.

He said the commission had not been informed whether Dr Mumba was withdrawing from the race or not and that he would only give a concrete position after the close of nominations.

“Dr Mumba is a candidate and we have his name among the nominees for presidency, so the new twist of him supporting another candidate is not much of our business since what we know is that he is a candidate,” Mr Akufuna said.

    • He is not a ‘Dr’, just another pretender to the doctorate throne! he is in the same pot as ‘Dr’ V.J. Mwanga, ‘Dr’ Kambwili’, ‘Dr’ ……….. so many others. Ask them what they researched on, zero!

      However, ‘Dr’ Mumba has made the right political decision to join UPND!

    • Victor the “Dr” is honorary. He did not go to school to get this Doctorate. In other words he did not research on anything. In normal circumstances he is not even supposed to be called Dr. It is usually people like Nevers, Kambwili, Vernon Mwaanga that are so obsessed to being called “Dr”. The ones that went to school and are genuine “Drs” do not even mind just being called Mr.

    • Mulicipuba yama. HH has never worked for ZPA and moreover he was just a young man at the time of privatisation, not older than 28, how could he have duped the entire then cabinet and ZPA board. Try to be a little less ignorant, read and your head a bit more.

    • @ Msana Wanzili Lack of integrity or Deceiving the process has no age limit… HH as a young man could have been used by the powerful then to be party of those who looted in the privatisation of State Companies and that has been the allegation for Mr HH to account for his involvement and what role he played with the other powerful people not active in politics now but were party in the privatisation program… HH has been targeted simply because he’s seeking the highest office in the land and this is not unusual as long as he does not give a satisfactory response, that will continue haunting him for the foreseeable future…

    • Abena Ponyo & Zakeyo, you harp on about HH seemingly having swindled the Govt through privatisation – what is ironic, is that Non of th previous govt nor PAmaFI have found the guy guilty enough to prosecute – if they had awhiff of misconduct, they would have swooped on it to throw him behind bars – so save you smelly brethe to accuse people like we ALL KNOW – CHAKOLWA KAMINAMISA WRUNGU – before December – the chap will FOR SURE HAVE BEEN A REGULAR VISITOR to Woodlands Police Hut, if NOT ALREADY IN CHIMBOKAELA!!

      Vote wisely 11/8/2016!! Vote Zambia Forward!! Vote UPND!! Abantu Baya!!

    • Fake Katondo Boys and Msana Wanzili – Not being found guilty is no proof that someone did not act unethically. Will you please explain why HH is on the boards of the companies he helped to privatize and we know were undervalued? Can HH show that his well wealth accumulated progressively as opposed to a quantum jump? He is seeking the highest office in the land and scrutiny is fair game and not witch hunting. Zakeyo is right on.

    • The Philosopher – We will not leave him alone. He wants to be our president and he seems to have a dubious past that he is failing to account for. Not being charged with any offense does not entail absence of guilt.

  4. Well, vs mumba has indeed rushed in the latest decision, but that doesn’t make HH a bad man. It’s also true that too many thugs have joined HH. But even that doesn’t make him a bad man. Infact ain’t you the same people that called UPND a Tonga party? Now that all the bemba’s have joined you are still crying foul, saying all the thieves are in UPND. You must understand that bemba’s are thieves, and if you want them in the party then the thieves will be in the party. Now the challenge is in taming them. Mwanawasa, brother to HH, tamed them. I have a strong belief HH will put them on a leash.

  6. Sour grapes! Just give him his money back!! If Mumba was supporting the visionless Chegwe Wrungu, that would not have been an issue and ECZ would have refunded the monies without questions. ECZ will have to meet any costs in his name since he is not standing.

  7. Nevers Mumba had not paid the full amount so even if ECZ refuses to refund he should not appear on the Presidential Ballot becoz he has not paid the full amount. As part of their rigging plans the PF had planned to take away some votes from HH’s tally and give the votes to Nevers Mumba. The whole point is to reduce HH’s votes and give them to someone else so that HH does not win. This is a trick imported from Zimbabwe and Uganda.

  8. This Akufuna is full of confusion. To participate as a Presidential candidate one has to pay the full amount of the fee. Its only UPND and PF candidates who paid the full fee so ECZ told us yesterday. If a candidate who had paid half of the fee decides to withdraw from the race how does he remain as a candidate with his name appearing on the ballot paper when he has disqualified himself by not paying the balance of the fee? With more than 2 months to go b4 the poll date why should Nevers Mumba after officially withdrawing from the rave remain a candidate and with his name appearing on the ballot? Does it suggests ballot papers have been printed already? I smell a fish here. Shades of rigging? ECZ must explain in the light of Akuduna’s comments.

    • Nyoni – ECZ acts in good faith that when you pay a deposit you will follow through – especially at the high level of presidential office. By the part payment, candidates locked their positions. That is why if you died after nomination is complete, your name will still appear on the ballot. Pastor Mumba is just a disorganized, arrogant man – now I understand why late MC Sata wanted to nail him. Please stop singing the broken LP of rigging.

  9. The man is a disgrace…he could not even come up with the full fee and he wants to seek higher office with such indecisiveness…really laughable. Just go back to church where there are docile people who believe lies.

  12. Sorry No Refund!Because you have lost you want your money back. Its like failing grade 12 and asking for your money back. What a sore loser indeed. Don’t forget to pay the people back that $500, 000 you took fom Canada under false pretense of a Zambian Cultural Program from Barrick’s. You are a thief and not a Dr. nor a preacher. I think HH is losing his mind accepting this mess.

  13. Nevers is hurting. He has lost his presidency and he is living in denial. It’s over Nevers, you’re now a UP N’ Down party cadre. Banakunyunya anso bad futi. As far as the Registrar of societies is concerned Felix Mutati (FM) is the Mwadya Mweka Daddy (MMD) president. You were toppled in Kabwe. Ukalilele na lomba iwe musankwa?
