MMD President Dr Nevers Mumba has gone on hunger strike to protest against the court refusal to hear the presidential petition challenging Mr. Edgar Lungu’s victory in the disputed 11 August.

Dr Mumba is currently remanded in custody at woodlands police station for criminal trespassing after he went to the Zambia Natinal Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) offices on 8th September to seek clarification over an unclear news item on the station’s 1900hrs bulletin on the ongoing court cases on the petition.

Lawyers representing Mumba told journalists Saturday afternoon that police went to his house with a search warrant reportedly looking for stolen firearms and other offensive weapon.
“Unfortunately, the search ‘drew a blank’ but the police went ahead and detained Dr. Mumba,” Jack Mwiimbu told journalists.

Inspector General Kakoma Kanganja issued a statement saying police had detained Mumba for his address regarding the disputed election.

“Mumba has been detained at Woodlands police station,” he said. “He will appear in court after all formalities have been made on Monday.”

  1. That’s a good start ba pastor, you fast pray , repent and then go back to the pulpit. Look now you have two necklines developing ..fasting or hunger strike as you choose to call it will definitely trim that fat around your neck and waist line and get you back into shape so you become that firebrand evangelist again

    By the way it has been scientifically been proven that fasting or hunger strike is actually good for your health

    • Fast for 40 days and nights during which time you should seek an absolute self imposed solitary confinement of no interruption from wife, children or colleagues that would make you impure. You will be reincarnated from insanity of declaring civil war on Zambians to a rational citizen in the new world.

    • PF are not smart, you can’t start arresting opposition leaders before you even have a confirmed president, at your self declared extraordinary holiday for your best of all Edgar.
      Lesa- ni malyotola.

    • Hunger strike ni pa zed you will die pofye! Your friend died ku south Africa trying to fast for 40 days concort will take years oho!

    • Nostradamus, PF are smart. The art of war, they could have arrested someone with influence but chose Mumba to send a message. He’s the most inconsequential of the Alliance members, no party, no political clout. No one is protesting in the streets because of Mumba, that should tell you something.

    • @Chilyata you know that caterpillars are more nutritious than red meat and they don’t give cancer like red meat? Try to educate yourself and get down your high horse.

    • Ba Mumba nabena, ati muzachiona lelo, sinizadya nshima na beans. Is HH on hunger strike as well? GBM is quiet now, just weighing on the situation

  2. Good….very good….izamunyokola njala….
    ….and what is this man fighting for?

    After Tuesday please Mr Mumba drink poison

    Edgar Lungu 5 more years

    I thank you

  3. katondo boys…..lesa nimalyotola….. It might not be in the five yrs but one day….hoping that the servants quaters will still be available…. Na cross boarder business yabaaaa madam ikabwela…..hey!!!!

    • Are you the hateful, bitter, vengeful, vindictive people to give power to? You answer yourself yet you still think there is hope in the future!

  4. Pipo dont worry this lost Pastor he knows that after Tuesday he will be given bail or police bond he can no longer starve for 10days is not a man of God but man of god or goat. Lol

  5. Try 40 days fasting. I only manage 12 hours that’s when I leave home at 6.30 to 18.30 when I return. Otherwise it’s Good for cholesterol, blood glucose & pressure, body mass and the main essential activity that all men need to be sane.

  6. THEIRS NO DEMOCRACY IN ZAMBIA WE BETTER GO BACK TO ONE PARTY STATE,OTHERS ARE ENJOYING,OTHERS ARE CRYING.SEKA UPONOKE.BA YESU ISENI BWANGU MUTUTEKE.

    • Which one party state iwemumbwe it’s your under 5 Tongaman who is destroying the Tonga Zambia relationship. Thank God he is BURIED and BANNED from active POLITICS.

    • Emmanuel, please don’t misinterpret DEMOCRACY!!!. We could consider USA and UK as the most developed democracies in our age. That does not mean that everybody agrees to the same things in those countries.
      For example in the UK – in recent past they had a referendum to LEAVE or REMAIN in the European Union. The LEAVE campaign got 52% vote while the REMAIN campaign got 48%. The margin was close and even there up to now the REMAIN campaigners are still protesting like HH and Dr. Mumba in Zambia – however life goes on.
      In USA we now have a movement calling itself BLACK LIVES MATTER. I wish this movement called itself ALL LIVES MATTER. The USA is an advanced democracy but riots and protests are endless.
      IN SHORT – BE IT IN DEMOCRACY OR DICTATORSHIP THERE WILL ALWAYS BE DISGRUNTLED…

    • Yes that’s true, but through proper protest that should never be allowed to violate people, judiciary and throw a sneer at the Law of the land.

  7. PLEASE MY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT TO ALL OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES HERE IN ZAMBIA IS ACCEPT THE RESULTS OF THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS THAT TOOK PLACE ON 11 TH AUGUST 2016,AND ADVICE THE NEW ELECT PRESIDENT THAT LET`S GO TO ONE PARTY STATE BECAUSE IN ZAMBIA DEMOCRACY CAN`T WORK.EVERYTHING IS UNDER GOVERNMENT.PELENI ABANTU INCHITO BWESHENI UMUTENGO WA BUNGA, AMALAITI,FOR YOU TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.WE DON`T WANT ANY CIVIL WAR I HAVE JUST STARTED MY LIFE MY DAUGHTER IS YOUNG MWAUMFWA.

  8. Dr. Mumba go on fasting until you die that’s when we will know that you really mean it, but if it is just for appeasement you will just fast for three/four days and eat in arrears. Ba Mumba start by repenting your self for the pulpit that you have abandoned and go for earthly pleasures! Remember, Zambia shall be served, is this what you meant when you were a man of God?

  9. BEBE YOU WANT INSULTS I BEG YOU.I RESPECT YOU,LEAVE ME ALONE IT WILL NOT BE GOOD.I HAVE NEVER INSULTED YOU,MIND YOUR WORDS BOSS.

  10. YEAH! LET HIM FAST- THAT IS HIS GREATEST OPPORTUNITY. SINCE WHEN DID HE LAST FAST. AMONA FULU THOSE WHO FAST INVOLUNTARILY BABA PA PICNIC. FACT IS HE IS FINDING A METHOD TO GET OUT OF HIS MASSIVELY FAILED POLITICAL CAREER, BUT IN A STUUPID WAY. DON’T MIND HIM NAFWITE FYAKULYA FYA FREE. THE MAN HAS NEVER BOUGHT HIS OWN FOOD INCLUDING HIS UNDER PANT. THE PUBLIC BUY FOR HIM, HIS WIFE AND BABIES. AFTER SOME DAYS HE WILL LIE TO THE WORLD THAT GOD HAS SPOKEN TO HIM TO GO BACK TO THE PULPIT. NINSONI FYE AKWETE TO JUST SAY HE HAS LAMENTABLY FAILED IN POLITICS- ESPECIALLY, THAT HH EVEN FAILED ON WHOM HE WAS BANKING FOR ANOTHER POSITION THAT WOULD HAVE MADE HIM GET FREE FOOD, AGAIN. NAMENSHI ALEKE UKUNWA SO THAT GOD ‘TALKS’ TO HIM QUICKLY. MEANWHILE, I THINK KA SAUSAGE KAPYA MU GRILL, SELA…

  11. Fighting? What do you mean? For what? Who is on your side? How do you know? God detests unrighteousness. He is about to show you who He is. Trip all your schemes or ……..

  12. It is surprising to note that many people are happy with the dictatorial tendencies currently happening in our country and see nothing wrong with that. Wait till u are mistreated that’s when u will realise that wrong things should not be supported.

    • There are no dictatorial tendencies only perceived ones from upnd inventions. You have chosen a path and so shall you walk on it. Your party president is saying he will not recognize ecl as the president of Zambia but when did he ever recognize him? In 2015 he lost and still did not recognize Lungu. We cannot be surprised at his frustrations! It must be really hurting!

    • Not perceived but rather mischievous misrepresentation intended to waylay the innocent or those they pompously refer to as ‘uneducated.’

  13. Akasaka ka bena Zambia tata mwalya abena Nevers “Nervous” Mumba mweba “Kristu” na mwina, nama wrinkles mumukoshi (behind your neck), symbolising how much of Zambia’s free money you have enjoyed. I only hope that that hunger strike will be longer than the one for the one you helped impose on street kinds. Maybe, that hunger strike will help you to self-introspect, repent, come out pure and go back to the pulpit as someone has already pointed out (that is, if you are going to come out of it and “eat in arrears”.

    I will never waste my vote on your friends HH, GBM and more so, yourself.

    Please bring breakfast my daughter!

  14. Police, Sirs, ….Force feed him …..if you really must….we don’t oppose his self imposed rule to curb his excesses. Very welcome and the best decision he has made in years!

  15. I don’t see any sensible commenets on this article because it’s a pf platform. Ubukopo. Wait for 5 years. You will cry foul.

  16. Instead of fasting to get people saved, you go on hunger strike just to try and get another mortal into Office as Republican President. What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and yet forfeit his soul?

  17. ATI CRIMINAL TRESPASS! WHEN THE ECZ, JUDGES AND LUNGU ARE THE ONES WHO ARE EVIL AND CRIMINAL, HOW CAN THEY SAY BE INNOCENT BEFORE GOD?
    WE ARE WAITING FOR A LIBERATION BY TUESDAY TO SEE THE EVIL JUDGES AND PASTORS FOR MONEY TO GRACE THE ILLEGAL SO CALLED INAUGURATION CEREMONY.

    I HAVE ALSO JOINED IN PRAYER AND FASTING TODAY FOR JUSTICE WHICH HAS BEEN LOST BY THESE JUDGES WHO ARE CORRUPT SO THAT GOD WILL SHOW THEM THE MESS WHICH THEY HAVE DONE.

  18. BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO READS THE WORD OF GOD AND BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO HEARS IT AND TAKE TO HEART WHAT IS WRITTEN IN IT BECAUSE THE TIME IS NEAR.

    LOOK HE IS COMING IN THE CLOUDS AND EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM EVEN THOSE WHO PIECED HIM, AND ALL THE PEOPLES OF THE EARTH WILL MOURN BECAUSE OF HIM.

    WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE CON COURT JUDGES OF ZAMBIA, ECZ- PRISCILAR MULENGA ISAACS, CHUULU AND THEIR TOP POWERFUL BEAST EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU AND HIS TEAM?

    MAMA MAMBILIMA AND MWANAMWAMBWA, MY WARNING IS THIS THAT DONT FEAR MAN BUT FEAR GOD AND IF YOU WILL BE USED ON TUESDAY, REMEMBER HOW STIFF IT SHALL BE WITH YOU ON THE FINAL DAY OF JUDGEMENT

  19. Fasting to go to Mukobeko I suppose! I thought we fast for a good cause but look at this case: the man is fasting for the Armageddon team, criminals and crooks etc and their filthy activities!I do not understand this.

  20. ATTENTION POLICIANS !

    Some of the political battles you are fighting might be in futility!

    Here is what you may not know;

    Most times God give people chances only once and when it slips away it’s for good.

    Pause and look at this;

    1. Chiluba called Brigadier Godfrey Miyanda at night to go to state house and he refused and ran to the Post to go and announce that Chiluba had called him at night. That chance went to Levy and he became PRESIDENT of Zambia.

    2. Levy called Nevers Mumba, nominated him as MP and appointed him Vice President. Nevers became pompous and could not humble himself when Levy apologized on his behalf in the USA where Levy was attending the UN General Assembly. Nevers was quizzed by reporters over Levy’s apology to Kabila and Nevers replied that he…

    • CONTINUED,: that he did not regret what he said and Levy fired him for lack of remorse and arrogance! Nevers was acting as Republican President and he lost it for good. Who knows if he could have become president following the untimely death of Levy?

      3. HH had agreed to work with Sata as vice following their pact to remove MMD from power. At the eleventh hour HH dumped Sata who later won the presidency in 2011 and HH would have become president following the untimely death of Sata. He lost it and its gone for good.

      There is a silent voice of God in many things which people don’t listen to until its lost for good.

  21. Dr. Mumba you are starving and the petitions are eating and having sex. What a joke. Anyway you die you have no value, you failed God and now want to die for HH big up man

  22. NO No, he’s not on hungry strike but has asked others to endure on his behalf as he avoid big sister’s children rental demand on his kabulonga residence occupancy due and avoiding Cosmo Mumba kid brother.

    • But there is a guy who stormed DNBC first to prove to Zambians that he hadn’t been evacuated to SA after he had allegedly collapsed. Why was he also not charged with criminal trespass? Kashimba Chimbwili etc have also stormed the same station before, why have they not been charged?

  23. Seeking political relevance the wrong way! You’re inconsequential, Mr Mumba! No one will miss you. Not even your colleagues in the alliance! Go back to the pulpit ba Pastor. There might still be some naive and gullible lost souls out there desperate for salvation, even your brand! After all, Karl Marx said “Religion is the opium of the poor!” It makes poverty a little more bearable!

  24. That’s very good! he needs to lose weight anyway. He thinks the international community will come to his rescue. Cage the mambala.

  25. UPND HAS BEEN TELLING LIES. THE LAWYERS OF HH ARE NOT AS DULL AS WE THINK. THEY ASKED HH TO GIVE THEM HIS EVIDENCE, ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT HE HAD NO EVIDENCE FOR THEIR ALLEGATIONS. THT IS WHY THEY RESORTED TO DELAYING TACTICS IN ORDER FOR THE CASE TO DRUG ON AND ON WHILE MILKING HIM OF LEGAL FEES.

  26. By Emmanuel Mwamba

    Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili and Anthony Kasolo last night stormed the public broadcaster and ordered the removal of video statements made by PF chairperson Inonge Wina and her members numbering 27.

    “How could you lead a story with suspended officials? Prominence should be given to the Acting President.”

    And Acting President Guy Scott called Director of Programs Kenneth Maduma and threatened him with dismissal.

    Kambwili, who ordered that reporters remove the Inonge Wina statement, refused to leave until the 21:00 hrs news was aired.

    “I know where the allegiance of this newsroom. I will replace all of you. You are a stupid bunch. We reached a quorum but you decided to cover that woman and her bunch of criminals when they are suspended,” he said…

  27. Ka Chakolwa MUSEVENI-WANNABE has pulled wool on PF00LS who think they own government.

    CHAVULA is a free man. No one even knows his true identity, whether he was even a zambian.

    LUNGU recruited image builders who helped him appear holy, humble & wise when his actions are hypocritically opposite.

    He claims to be holy when he is in the pocket of Chinese & made k23million (undervalued) in 1year
    He claims to be humble when he is brutal & persecutes anyone with an opposing view. He’s a Museveni-wannabe
    He claims to be wise when he has thugs like Kaizer Zulu as advisors
    He claims to have done wonders with the economy when the truth is that the country’s economy is in shambles, that’s why IMF has been brought in.

    We fought KK & won
    We fought FTJ & won
    We fought RB & won
    We…

  28. It is really sad to see the spirit of the people of Zambia. People becoming muderers by their words. You will all give an account to God for your words of hate and disrespect. It is clear by most of your words that you people need to repent. You are promoting a way of life that will have no freedom of speech and expression in Zambia. Debate issues and not insults. Your words lack wisdom. So sad indeed. If you think Dr. Mumba has done wrong, what benefit do you get by wishing him dead?? He is someone’s son.. Someone’s husband and someone’s father. How would you feel if someone wishes you dead?? What you think in your heart you are.. How can you be proud of wishing someone dead?? That is witchcraft and you will be surprised when you face your maker alone without social media and without…

  29. This is one reason I disdain PF. kambwili went to terrorise ZNBC staff but it was not trespass for him but for Pastor Mumba who went to seek clarification. Ba pastor be strong. just don’t overfast your body. PF have touched God’s anointed and not the Jameson man whom the Pete Lusaka bishops are calling God’s anointed. your God will give you justice. in a few years time Lungu will be history like RB. Kanganja and other cadres will be no more.

  30. We don’t care even if you can go on hunger strike. Please go and don’t drink even water because on Tuesday it is Green Green Green all is set for ECL for 5 years

  31. Good for you ba Mumba, please just start fasting and while you are at it,remember to repent and ask for forgiveness. The PULPIT is awaiting you. Otherwise, if you continue to resist by the time God is done with you! You will regret ever being a POLITICIAN..
