MMD President Dr. Nevers Mumba has expressed alarm at the shocking levels of ignorance and inexperience being exhibited by President Lungu on important constitutional matters that hinge on poor governance and disregard for rule of law.

Commenting on the Constitutional Court ruling that Ministers’ continued stay in their positions beyond the desolution of Parliament on 16th May, 2016 was illegal and were now required to re-imburse all monies received in allowances and salaries since that date. Dr. Mumba wondered how President Lungu could have made such a blunder even on Deputy Ministers when the position was now not in the Amended Constitution and that the entire case only proved the theft and lack of regard for public resources by the PF Government.

Dr Mumba further said those that had accused President Lungu of being unfit to occupy the highest office in the land had been vindicated since it appeared that the country had been on ‘auto pilot’ since January 2015 and perhaps explained certain questionable political and governance decisions made by Mr. Lungu, which had led to the current pitiful state of affairs in the country. He said it was now clear that President Lungu and his advisers were all simply incompetent to run government.

Dr. Mumba further said it was extremely disturbing that a lawyer of President Lungu’s stature could superintend over a government so fraught with lawlessness and recklessness plunder of national resources never experienced before in this country. He said right now the country was grappling with trying to understand how a lawyer president could allow a former president, who was actively involved in politics, continue to draw hefty pension benefits in defiant violation of the Benefits of Former President’s Act Chapter 15 of the Laws of Zambia, which stipulates that any former President who engages in active politics immediately forfeits claim to the benefits. But it now appeared that Mr. Banda had met his match in President Lungu in defying the rule of law and violation of the Constitution of the land.

“It is gratifying that the Law Asociation of Zambia has won this case to bring sanity to the nation. We now appeal to the Association to petition President Lungu on the unfortunate case of former President Rupiah Banda being allowed in active politics while drawing his benefits in clear violation of the law. We also request LAZ to censure and question the Attorney General, the Minister of Finance, the DPP, the Secretary to the Cabinet and the Secretary to the Treasury to answer to the taxpayers on how this case has been handled which was another case of obvious abuse of office and authority on the President’s part.

“This is not based on anything personal against Mr. Banda, but must be addressed for the sake of precedence and posterity,” he said.

According to Dr Mumba , Mr. Banda was recently awarded K5 Billion (un-rebased) which was the purported value of a house he is entitled to as a former president. Last week Mr. Banda joined President Lungu on the campaign trail in Eastern Province to campaign for Mr. Lungu and the Patrotic Front, in violation of both the Principal and the Amended Benefits of Former Presidents Act.

    • The ruling of the constitutional court is an indictment on Edgar Lungu. This man is a lawyer but he is am embarrassment to the profession. He stole a clients money, was debarred and by chance he become president. In a civilized country Edgar Lungu would have resigned after that ruling.

    • Losing a case is not a sign of incompetence ba Mumba. How many cases has LAZ lost before? There is no lawyer who does not loose a case. On this one they need to make it clear in the constitution. I would not be suprised if the ministers took this case to another court and the ruling becomes different.

    • It’s protruding ignorance to believe that judicial deliberation that results in a verdict unfavor to the respondent, is being incompetent. How many cases have you lost yourself? Be advised that the Concourt has set a precedence that will humble you soon. It’s verdict is supreme and final.

    • @Obatala Lungu Jameson Kuyabebele! If Lungu is a Lawyer the I am an astrophysicist.
      The man has absolutely NO clue about law. I actually believe that when Rupiya Banda hired those Image builders for Lungu last year they concluded after a few second of talking to Lungu that he was an empty tin and the only way to make him win was to keep him from talking altogether, hence the ‘HUMBLE MAN NAME’.
      Now that he has had to talk to sell himself the results are there for all to see.

    • It only proves that the ConCourt is free from Executive influence and so when they rule against HH’s petition you all MUST respect that…

  4. @Saulosi, you are such a dunderhead! Can’t you see that Mumba is talking sense here? Please do not allow the Lungu/PF thuggery blind you just because you are benefiting from it. A precedent is being created here. How would you feel if HH won and this political thuggery continues in a UPND government where you might not be directly benefiting as you are now? Ubututu nobukopo tulesha kumushi 🙁

    • @MaryGoRound, you have a point, you do I agree with you. Most people supports even something that is wrong, there is no way RB can be actively involved in politics and still getting his benefits on top of that he gets earlier than anyone before him. This is corruption.

  7. Why did Mwanawasa unceremoniously drop you from the position of Vice President? Ba Mumba, Thursday 11 August is here and the reality will dawn next week, imwe together with the Satanist (HH) you are now worshiping will be sent to hell through the ballot.
    You chaps, the cartel and GBM have made it very easy and assisted to eliminated UPND from the political platform. I cant wait to see who amongst yourselves will ever be heard of once President Lungu crashes you on 11 August 2016?

  8. Nevers Mumbwe and (HH) why do you want a shortcut to State House? Why should the chosen one resign? This is Africa. Lungu is for the people.

    Politics is not for babies. Try in 2021. Wimps.

  9. Pastor Mumba could you please stop fooling yourself, Zambia’s poor in northern and eastern provinces are also having a debate about their future – you are simply not listening. Go and read history, no nation or empire that didn’t take care of the poor lasted. UPND is elitist and this is why their future will be bleak on Thursday. Pastor Mumba tell us something on tribalism.

  10. ECL is more clever than ka failed pastor Nevers Mumbwe or sorry Mumba…ECL knows HH will petition the same ConCourt in a few days from now…So when the ruling is in ECL’s favour all of you celebrating should respect the decision of the ConCourt because it is independent and free to make judgments with no hand from ECL…

    VIVA LUNGU! You have dribbled them again! Let them ask for the money you will pay in installments over 5 years starting next week….ke ek ek ek ek ek ke

    • So you are saying that Lungu has dribbled the nation by falsely allowing the Constitution Court to deliver the judgement in favour of the nation so that when P.F rigs the elections and UPND petitions it and rule against UPND it will appear has if the court is independent? Mwailasha.

    • Wishful thinking…., Lungu will not be “allowed” to steal an election when he loses in 2 days time. There will be NO case for the constitutional court to rule on. Besides, this court on rules on constitutional matters lol

  11. Kateka has proved the job of president is beyond his ability to cope with. Blunders like this shouldn’t come as a surprise. They are to be expected. He is incapable of doing things correctly.

  12. DR Mumba at it again……he is forgetting that it is the same diarrhea mouth that made him lose his favor with the late president mwanawasa. Pastor,you are not fit for anything now,not even to point a finger at anyone.
    Hatred and anger will kill you.Go back to church.

  13. Quite disappointed in how the pastor has turned out & how he has made character assassination his business now. Concourt ruling is mere interpretation by court & not a guilty verdict or admonition. 3 of the 7 things the LORD hates & cannot tolerate is (i) feet that harry off to do evil (ii) a witness who tells 1 lie after another & (iii) someone who stirs up trouble among friends Prov 6. Look around Pastor & check whether you should be in environment you find yourself. It’s not too late to turn around.

  14. NEVERS MUMBA HAS A RIGHT TO BELONG TO A POLITICAL PARTY OF HIS CHOICE ACCORDING THE CONSTITUTION OF ZAMBIA, HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER & ILO CONVERSIONS. THE FACT THAT NEVERS HAS JOINED POLITICS DOES NOT MAKE HIM A LESS HUMAN. HE HAS THE RIGHT TO COMMENT ON ISSUES AFFECTING THE COUNTRY AS HE DOES NOT LIVE IN A VACUUM. COMING BACK TO CHRISTIANITY, WHEN KING DAVID SINNED, GOD SENT NATHAN A MAN OF GOD TO GO AND CONDEMN THE KING. NEVERS HAS EVERY RIGHT TO CONDEMN LUNGU IN THIS CASE

  17. BITTER PASTOR;PRODIGAL SON – IT IS CLEAR POLITICS IS NOT YOUR PORTION. HE STARTED AS A RESPECTED SON OF THE LIVING GOD, THE TOUCH BEARER. HE ENDS UP LIKE A DISGRACED BOOTLICKING POLITICIAN
    ================================================
    Rewind! Once in the Bible upon a time, a rich kid asked of his father’s portion of promised riches. He went his way and squandered everything thinking he was smarter than anyone. Behold, everything he touched never worked a wink. But God is patient, the lost son was upbeat about success. Alas! It just never worked until the time of reckoning. Prodigal NSM’s time of reckoning is fast approaching. The vineyard is waiting for the spiritual version of this gallant man.The pulpit is waiting. Come back son.

  18. Ba Mumba, as usual surrounded by confusion, when it suited you with regards to 3 former heads of state it was fine, MGRTS. Alas today a court ruling has been passed with regards to Ministers and Deputy Ministers, Ba Rupiah as former head of State can comment as spectator please tell me why is the RB and Mutati factions, not were you are? Have you seen RB dawning PF attire or waving PF symbols? Ba Tata Ba KK should he also be under microscope? Ba Miyanda should he be persecuted by PF for commenting on National issues during heated election time? Ba Mumba sit bback and watch how it’s done. To the voting public don’t be confused we have had enough time and now it’s time to excise our constitutional right get out there and vote for your candidate don’t be side tracked by failed…

  21. Pastor Mumba please go back to pulpit because as at now your anointing has expired you need fresh anointing to be Imparted By a Prophet of God for you are just a pastor who can not discern, use knowledge and wisdom. Your Prophecy is waiting for you. right now if you are to be called a pastor then you are no better than an elder from SDA.
