Nevers Mumba

Mr. Edgar Lungu would be my first witness to affirm that when he was elected President in 2015, I was the only major losing Presidential Candidate who attended his inauguration at Heroes Stadium which I attended with my wife and some senior MMD officials. This was in recognition that he had been democratically elected and as there was no petition against his election I felt morally and duty bound to stand with him.

This year we were against attending the day of prayer and fasting as it stands as a mockery to justice. Mr. Lungu’s Presidency is in dispute and as stipulated in the newly amended Constitution, which he himself willfully and expeditiously assented to, it gives any aggrieved party the right to petition the election before inauguration. Sadly, in a dramatic turn of events, the PF made desperate last minute manouvres to block the hearing of the petition which was the only constitutionally accepted avenue of determining the legitimacy of the 2016 election and also determine the rightful winner of the election.

The current attempts by the PF to use a prayer meeting to sanitize a stolen election will not be in the interest of either the nation or the Bible. Scripture is very clear when it deals with the sincerity and integrity of prayer. It says that,

“If you bring a gift before God (prayer) and you remember that someone has ought against you, leave your gift on the altar and seek to reconcile with that person and then come and give the offering (prayers).”

Instead of facing up to the opposition demands for the Petition to be heard, Mr. Lungu has chosen to be unreasonable and rule with an iron fist using police brutality and locking up his political opponents, shutting down free media to silence dissenting voices all deceitfully ‘covered by prayers and fasting’ and is not interested in reconciling with anyone or finding consensus on how to move the country forward.

The national prayers in their current form are more of an affront to the nation as they are meant to prop up an individual instead of honoring God and his word by seeking genuine reconciliation and resolution of the disputed election. As things stand, Mr. Lungu will have to deal with the ‘ghost’ of the disputed election and all its staggering illegalities and electoral malpractices which will surely trouble his conscience if he chooses to stubbornly pursue this path.

Unfortunately, some misguided PF surrogates have already started saying that now that the Prayers and Fasting have taken place, the opposition should accept Mr. Lungu as democratically elected and allow the nation to move on. This is an extremely troubling projectory for the PF to think that merely by holding the Day of Prayer and Fasting, the blatant violations of the Constitution and electoral irregularities experienced in the 2016 Election should just be ‘swept under the carpet’ and we all move on.

If we become so casual with such crucially fundamental governance issues as a country, what does the future hold for future elections? What then is the real value of the amended Constitution over which so much time and resources were spent? What kind of Zambia are we creating?

The only achievement of these prayers as unfortunately being shown by the above position is to bury all our heads in the sand and caress the egos of Mr. Lungu and a selected number of ‘palace’ pastors who are fighting for relevance and recognition in the eyes of man by wishing to legitimize an illegitimate president.

My history speaks for itself that if the right procedure is followed, the rule of law protected and a transparent process reveals that Mr. Lungu actually did win the election, I will be the first to congratulate him as the democratically elected president and accord him the honor due to him. But as it stands, we have a disputed election and no prayer meeting will fix or resolve that. Mr. Lungu needs to humble himself and ensure that the petition is heard.

Zambia shall be saved from religious deception.

    • Japanese, China are not Christians and does not pray to the “invisible sky god” and yet they are so productive and RICH. Zambians waste so much time blabbering nonsense to nothingness and expect money to fall from above.

    • “But as it stands, we have a disputed election and no prayer meeting will fix or resolve that.”

      But how gullible are Zambian people, not to recognize the deceitfulness of Lungu. Ask Lungu a simple question, before we pray , why are you closing the media houses and imprisoning the opposition members. ?

    • Zambians are delusional, these prayers are a waste of Breath. No amount of prayers will get rid of Lungu and PF’s financial incompetence.
      Rather than closing your eyes, you need to wake up to the reality of your worthless PF leadership and get rid of them asap.

    • Does anyone know the title of the video about Zambia and Ghana that has gone viral?

      The African American pastors preaches about how Zambians do not use their heads to think but rather fill up the churches and pray for a better life instead of using brains to do the right thing.
      The pastor explains how Zambia sold the copper mines to foreigners for 25 million dollars, to foreigners who are not Christians and does’nt pray to a christian god BUT made 75 million dollars within 3 months from the same copper mines!!!
      What does that tell you?

    • For some of you who were still wearing dippers, the Pastor was referring to how KCM was sold by Levy Mwanawasa’s MMD government.

  2. ‘But as it stands, we have a disputed election and no prayer meeting will fix or resolve that’, says Pastor Nevers Mumba the man I knew to be a man of Prayer. You mean you can not take your troubles to God for a solution? Kwena na muwa eeee. To you prayer can no longer resolve a problem? You no longer believe that if ECL stole the election God can remove him from that sit and give it to the one elected? You preached to me when I was young in the show ground but now it is me to preach to you pantu na muwa sana bane. You have gone back to the foods of pigs in the muds and you are enjoying that. You are a let down and do not shot the Bishops and Pastors that are still serving God. I was a student at CBU and whenever I passed near your house along Jumbo Drive in the morning I could hear you…

    • @ Katwisi Mwe,
      Bane prayer s not an escape got for not using your senses. You must read from the Bible that, “… you do not receive from God because you pray amis…” Misguided prayers don’t move God. It’s utter foolishness for us to call for prayer and fasting, for the purpose of reconciliation when we are sited next to our enemies we don’t want to talk to.
      I submit that the president needs to reach out to his perceived enemies and seek reconciliation instead of hiding behind prayers.
      The president must address the misappropriation of public funds instead of praying for God to heal our economy.
      Prayer doesn’t fix the economy. You tell me if China prays, if Japan prays, if Singapore prays, if Dubai prays.
      What fixes the economy are good decisions and accountability.

  3. Well said nevers Mumba.

    The petition is not about HH or GBM it is about the future of our elections to be seen as free and fair and respect for the law.

    The precedent lungu wants to set should not be allowed. Zambians should have the confidence that the person with majority votes is elected as leader. Not this mockery lungu wants to bring…..we’re crookes can feel free to manipulate the vote, absolutely not.

  7. We all know you were seeking for a job just as when you crossed over and our Party Leadership embraced you…but we told the inner circle how can we forget how you sent thugs to beat up Kachingwe or indeed your dishonest behavior when you were sent to foreign service. Never mind your illusionary thoughts about a neighbor about to attack us when you served a the second most powerful man in the land. You and I know the ruling will go against the party you came to destabilize, but for the likes of you we would have beaten PF clean. Go and mobilize your own party and leave us alone..Continue to pray for MMD..we the people are in postmortem mode we shall release the results at the referendum….Zambia Forward.

  8. If lungu did not steal votes, he would let the petition go ahead since he has nothing to fear.

    On the contrary PF seem afraid of this petition.

    Lungu let the petition be heard, the truth shall set you free.

    • Of course it is lungu. In zambia lungu has the last word on everything.

      Look at the AG report, only when lungu signalled that fake selective investigations can go ahead did we hear that some investigations had started.

      There is no independence anywhere. Lungu appointed every one and controls every one.

  13. Katwishi and Biemba, read and listen what Nevers is saying. He is not refusing the power of prayer. He is simply saying you can not steal and call short sighted people like to come prayers. What nosense is that. Finshi Lungu amilisha such that you can even fail to understand simple reasoning.

  15. Those who think we just pray are misguided. Very soon you will start accusing Christians of marginalizing others business wise. We are coming slowly but sure with clean money no kick backs contracts. Pure business .We are on the streets, markets, financial institutions, agricultural, real estate etc. We are genuine born again Christians who attend the national prayers. We are from Catholic, UCZ, Pentecostals, Evangelical, Presbyterian.
    Our hope is not in EDGAR LUNGU our agenda is to ensure peace prevails regardless of what happens in any elections. No election process is perfect as you can see and hear what is happening in your USA.

  16. You will be shocked when you together with your earthly god ECL find yourselves in hell despite your fake prayers. You rainbow/sun worshipping hypocrites! The real faithful ones are discreetly seeking the face of God…in private. God gave you your talents, don’t bury them, use them to multiply them.

  17. Someone please recommend a therapist for me for clicking on this page. Mr. MUMBA, Now you are so far from the voice of GOD RIGHT NOW DUE TO POLITICS. Shame that the UPND leaders and support can’t advice you to go back to the PULPIT.(THEY WILL BE ANSWERABLE TO GOD, WHEN THEY DIE) Am sure they are aware of this. On Earth we say an ACCOMPLICE TO A CRIME. Just so you know, the anointing of the HOLY SPIRIT that gave you Authority then and now and causes people to LISTEN and FOLLOW when you speak, is STILL PRESENT IN ON YOUR HEAD. Just ask for FORGIVENESS.GOD IS KIND AND MERCIFUL.

  18. ECL IS A TROUBLED SOUL. ALL YOU PARASITES WHO DEPEND ON HIM TO EAT DO NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS GOING THROUGH. BECAUSE OF THE DECEPTION AND DRIBBLING HE DID ON THE 23016 ELECTION, THE DEMONS WHICH HAD ALLOWED HIM TO CONTINUE WHEN HE DRIBBLED THE PF AT THE MULUNGUSHI CONVENTION HAVE NOW WOKEN UP AND ARE GIVING HIM NO PEACE.

    WHY IS HE THE ONLY ONE SEEING THE BEES WHICH ARE CHASING HIM AROUND? IMWE FI PF, KULI BUKABWALALA BWENU MWALAIPASHA KATEKA.

  19. UPND & you Pastor Mumba had your day in court but you hired lawyers who cant count days & who were busy trying to move the whole of ZNBC & ECZ to the Constitutional Court. Like Trump is doing now in the USA in circumstances were he is more likely to lose your HH was busy saying he will reject the result. Whether you like it or not history has recorded that you had your day at the ballot & in court & you lost. International & local observers have approved the process. You can deny it for the next 100 years but God has His chosen leader now in State House who is the President of Zambia.

  20. are 2016 elections still under discussion? we need to forget about Dr. Mumbas rantings and ignore his bitterness which he will account to God.
    In my view the more we comment on anything from him the more his inflated ego becomes big, so the best is to ignore him, for he is not worth a comment.
    Just look at his article, he himself does not want to repent and paints other Christians who attended Gods calling Black, to me it shows he left christianity a long time.
    He says dont go to Gods alter while holding a grudge against your brother when in actual sence those who held prayer meetings went to reconcile with themselves and our Lord, and that should have been a platform for reconciliation for Dr. Mumba and those agrieved.
    As a man of God he should reflect
