MMD Die Hard Youths National Coordinator Gerald Chiluba has described the relationship between embattled former MMD President Nevers Mumba and UPND president Hakainde Hichilema as a perfect fit.
And MMD Lusaka Province Youth Chairperson Elision Malambo said the only members of the party remaining with Dr Mumba are those he came with from the church when he joined the party.
Speaking when the duo featured on Pan African radio on Friday Mr Chiluba who has taken over the controversial youth wing of the former ruling party said the two leaders deserve to be in the same party because of their never concede defeat attitude.
He said Dr Mumba continues to mislead the MMD membership and the nation at large that he is still the president of the party even when it is clear that people are not interested in him just like Hakainde Hichilema who continues to fight the will of the Zambian people who have denied him an opportunity to be president for more than 5 times.
He said the two individuals want to force themselves on Zambians who have categorically said no to them.
“There is something wrong about Nevers and HH they both do not concede defeat, look at HH he is claiming to be the president of Zambia when he is not, look at Nevers he also claims to be MMD president when he is not, HH is in court today trying to force himself on Zambians who have categorically said no to him on five occasion same as Nevers who is also trying to force himself on the MMD membership using the courts.
“Just a few days ago Dr Mumba told his confidants that he had quit politics but a few hours later the decision was rescinded. Zambians have now completely lost hope in the two. These two are indeed a perfect fit, just look at their behavior when they go to court; they are busy insulting the same judges they want to seek help from, they have now become a laughing stock to the Zambians,” he said.
Mr Chiluba also called on republican president Lungu to use his executive powers and stop what he termed as nonsense by the UPND President.
“We are calling upon president Lungu to use his executive powers to intervene and stop the nonsense by the UPND and bring the country to order because people are now tired of politicking and now interested in economic and developmental matters,” he said.
Meanwhile Elision Malambo said the people Dr Mumba claims to be members supporting him are his stooges who came with him from the church when he sold his party to the MMD.
Responding to a Mr Zulu who called in to say that the panelists were just masquerades, Mr Malambo said Dr Mumba was an imposter who came in the party with the sole purpose of making it his meal ticket.
Mr Malambo who claimed to be more senior in the party than the former republican vice president said that there is no structure in the party that is supporting Dr Mumba because all the members recognise the presidency of Felix Mutati the person elected at the convention which Dr Mumba shunned due to his fear that he would suffer a humiliating defeat.
