FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM THE NATIONAL SECRETARY’S OFFICE – MMD

MOVEMENT FOR MULTIPARTY DEMOCRACY – COMMUNIQUE

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) at its regular meeting held on the 6th October 2017 in Roma, Lusaka deliberated on a number of issues and key among them were:

1. MMD CLARIFIES ITS POSITION ON THE ALLIANCE

It was resolved that the MMD shall continue to operate as an independent Political Party whilst working in partnership with other willing political parties in all matters of national interest.

The National Executive Committee members appreciated the appearance at the meeting of the UPND, ADD and PP Presidents who came specifically to give weight to the idea of the continued Alliance.

2. MMD PROVINCIAL AND DISTRICT ACTIVITIES

Taking note of the reports from all the Provincial Chairmen confirming that all the party structures country wide are intact and functional, the National Executive Committee resolved to undertake Provincial and District Tours from now up to the first quarter of next year.

3. MMD NEC ELECTS NEW TOP BRASS

In a bid to reinforce the operations of the Party, the National Executive Committee elected Rev Reuben Samboh, who was until the 6th October, 2017 National Secretary of the Party to the position of Vice President -Administration. Madam Elizabeth Chitika, the National Treasurer now takes over as National Secretary. Mr Malama Sokoni, the Deputy National Treasurer to act as National Treasurer. Mr Nyoni and Mr Peter Phiri were both elected and confirmed as nominated members.

4. MMD DISOWNS THE RUPIAH BANDA/MUTATI SPLINTER GROUP

The National Executive Committee would like to clarify once again that there is only one MMD led by Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba. The purported faction led by Mr Mutati, who was duly expelled, is an illegal group created by former President Rupiah Banda as a negotiating instrument with the Patriotic Front. The case to determine who gave them the authority to hold that illegal gathering they keep calling a convention, is very active in Court (due to their numerous appeals) and shall be concluded soon.

    • But who is the legally elected president of MMD? Why can’t this issue be taken to court and be resolved once and for all? Isn’t there a court of arbitration in Zambia that can help resolve this issue so we can be spared from the noise about this nonsense? Who can be the arbiter in this matter? It is confusing. Let’s form an umbrella organization for political parties, whose mandate, among others, would be to deal with issues of this nature.

    • If these two, Mumba and Mutati cannot resolve internal MMD Party issue, how can we entrust them to solve national issues?

    • In Zambia it seems some people like to believe lies,injustices and illegalities.This RB/MUTATI issue has been explained over and over several times,but people have just chosen to believe a lie/nonsense.MUTATI IS NOT MMD.He was expelled and the courts upheld the expulsion when he appealed
      This Mutati nonsense is the RB PROJECT to just disturb MMD to favour ECL on wako ni wako basis.Finally this nonsense is coming to an end.Justice may take long to be delivered,but surely and slowly it shall be done.They say the wheels of justice are usually slow but they do turn.

    • NEVERS MUMBA IS ONE LAZY CHAP WHO THINKS LIKE A BABY. NM, IS ALWAYS THINKING THAT ZAMBIANS WILL KEEP ON FEEDING HIM AND HIS FAMILY. THE OTHER DAY YOU WERE LAMENTING ABOUT ZAMBIA BEING INVADED BY MUSLIMS. OF COURSE IT IS STUP1D AND LAZY PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO ARE LETTING THE MUSLIMS OCCUPY THE VACUUM. YOU LEFT THE PULPIT THINKING YOU CAN MAKE EASY MONEY IN POLITICS. BUT EVEN WHEN YOU DID (MAKE MONEY) YOU STILL STAYED UNTIL PEOPLE NOTICED THAT YOU ARE JUST A GREEDY CHAP.

    • It seems LT does NOT stand on the side of legality.Their attached comments to the MMD PRESS RELEASE are so biased,leaves much to be desired and do not reflect that LT has been following this MMD Saga,where RB has brought confunsion in MMD.Please ba LT be professional and legal in your reporting.Follow issues legally.Dr Mumba is the legal MMD PRESIDENT AND NOT A FACTION PLEASE.

    • MPs ‘belonging’ to Mutati is NOT un issue.An illegality is an illegality no matter how long it takes.Infact this RB/MUTATI GROUP,where thinking that Dr Mumba and Team will get tired as RB said so that he gives up and then the expelled Mutati will ligitimize his position.But alas that has not happened.Mutati will do well to just formally join PF,otherwise he will be Partless like Miles Sampa.

    • How can you claim to be the leader of a party whose MPs give their part of earnings to another person instead of you? And why didn’t his team win even a ward councilors seat? This beats logic.

  2. Nevers Mumba can claim as claiming is free.but by law and according to the court ruling,the real MMD president is Hon.Felix Mutati.
    Even the MMD MPs who are in parliament report to Felix Mutati.the MMD secretariat in Kabulonga where Nevers Mumba and Major Kachingwe were beaten some years back is currently being run by Felix Mutati’s MMD.these are facts.today Nevers Mumba’s so called mmd does even have an office.SO UPND AND THEIR “NASHALA NEKA PARTIES-ADD,MULONGOTI AND NEVERS MUMBA) MUST NOT CHEAT ZAMBIANS!!

    • @ Ba Njimbu’-Please don’t mislead people-Which court ruling are you referring to?.The Supreme Court were shoked how that purported ‘illegal gathering was held in Kabwe,and they threw the case back to High Court for retrial(fair hearing).The Mutati faction has been frantically making appeals to date.This now has come to an end.Just wait and see what may happen soon or later.

    • Njimbu are the same useful i.d.i.o.t.s trying to give spineless Mutati false hope that he is MMD President when in actual fact not and he is going nowhere.How can a non-member of MMD become president of the same Party that expelled him?.Mutati has stayed this long simply because he is supported by ECL/PF.Wait and see

  7. If a party wants bad luck at elections, it associates itself with Under5 and UP.NDonkeys. This applies to individuals too, look at how Kambwili will finish up, look at Miles Sampa, Guy Scott, Mulenga Sata, even Nevers Mumba himself. It was the same with late Mr Sata. When he was planning an electoral alliance with Under5, people told Sata that they wanted to vote for him but Under5 gave them the creeps. Sata kept U5 at arms length and saw his support base swell. It’s anybody’s guess what would have become of Mr Sata’s political career had he agreed to align with U5. Somehow people don’t feel comfortable with U5, even his own UP.NDonkeys feel the same except that there is a tribal element there.
    U5 is not likeable even by children, what more their parents. Contrast that with the…

  8. ….U5 is not likeable even by children, what more their parents. Contrast that with the comfort, pleasure and smiles that children feel when they meet with Mr Lungu or his wife Esther, genuine smiles. Someone once said you can tell who will win an election by the smiles from childten. It must be true because parents feel comfortable with someone whom their children feel comfortable with.

    • Terrible not everyone smiles when the see him. This morning when we were stopped to give way to the presidential motorcade. Not a soul. smiled or hootered in solidarity. Everyone was mute including the police. There was no excitement at all. It was like a funeral procession passing.

  10. Keep pushing MMD. Ignore the day dreamers, not even a million dollar fire tender can quench you. You are on course with a lot of support country wide. They will scorn and discourage you but ignore them like poop

  11. These so called alliances in Zambia, what are they for? Does it mean every sitting government is an enemy of the country? Why can’t a political party work on its own to win an election?

  12. This is old news, a party that obtains less than 20,000 votes cannot even win a high school popularity contest. MMD is irrelevant, actually, Mutati will jump to the PF when the presidency is offered to him. Watch and see.

  13. NEVERS MUMBA is a degerous politician how can he appoint a girl friend CHITIKA to be illegel National Secretary without shame or fear of her husband. coming to the issue it is illegal and incorrect for ba LT to address NEVERS MUMBA MMD President because the real owner of the party countrywide party officials spoke at the convention am challenging you ba LT to produce the court rulling which restored this tired pastor back to MMD Presidency

    • @ Ba fake ‘true blue’.That so-called Kabwe gathering is the one being challenged in Court.There are many questions to be answered.Which existing legal MMD Organ that sanctioned that ‘convention”?.2Who provided the legal Electoral College Attendance List?.Mutati was duly expelled,Mbulakilima,Nakachinda on suspention,Kangwa of Kabwe left MMD after the loss in 2011.So really this manufactured RB/MUTATI night mare,what a shame and immoral behaviour.This was just an RB PROJECT to find a way to negotiate for his court case with ECL/PF,which as we all know ended in aquittal by ECL as a trade-off.Mutati is just a useful i.d.i.o.t used by RB for his selfishness

    • Surely the people who can support RB & MUTATI actions are immoral to say the least.When MMD was nearly deregistered,RB & MUTATI were nowhere near to help raise the money (K400m) that was required.Dr Mumba single handedly raised the money.Now because the Party is still there,they rise against the man who saved the Party from deregistration-Very immoral indeed.And RB does not even behave like a man who once saved as a Republican President of the country.He is so selfish,pathetic and shameless.

  14. U READ THE MMD CONSTITUTION IMWE BA MWANALUSHI MUYUNDA IT DOES NOT GIVE absolute powers to NEC MEMBERS or Presidents to call for the conventions and the drafter of the MMD Constitution knew that there will be Presidents who are dictators like NEVERS MUMBA who bulldoze everything to suet his ego, that convention was called by the members/party officials of the party as per article 15 of the constitution so just shup up if u dont know anything just continue butlinking this lost pastor actually its u who is fake because u dont know MMD Structures even one branch official like your NEVERS MUMBA who thinks the party is just be a president

    • Ba ‘tulu bulu’-Mutati was expelled.The records are there at Court.This debate is going nowhere.Let us just wait for the courts to conclude justice.Do you know that the injuction obtained by Dr Mumba to stop that gathering was thrown out in the night on Friday without the other party being present,just to pave way for that RB/MUTATI PROJECT on Saturday the following day.That night action was suspect.That’s why the Supreme Court were shocked on how this issue was handled.Just wait and see.

  15. NEVERS mwaiche you are used to being spoon fed. Now you want to lean on UPND hoping they can give you a challenging position. What about its own two deputies and the lawyers, where do you place them? And who would want you for the position of President when you failed to run the office of the vice.

  16. one last question for ba muyunda, what makes you to be more confident about the case which is not even started the hearing, do you know that the expulsion of mutati was done to prevent him from challenging Nevers Mumba at the Convention so it falls off with the new republican constitution. tell me what offence did mutati commit for him to be expelled? That is the reason mutati lawyers applied for the case to be heard by Constitution court because they know that its constitutional matter why is Nevers Mumba refusing the case to be heard by constitution court and why is that judge siyavwapa insisting to hear the case which is not under his jurisdiction? so ba muyunda just keep on dreaming, NEVERS MUMBA IS FORGOTTEN IN MMD HE IS GONE CHALIPYA if he wants let him form his party and stop…

  17. Iwe PRIEST stop cheating and your Nevers Mumba that MONEY which was paid to Registra of Societies did not come from NEVERS MUMBA or organised by him it was raised by DORA SILIYA you can ask her if you want. the problem with this pastor he tell lies just to win favours from the people he always want to get credits from things he did not do. Ba Priest stop exposing your ignorance on MMD Issues this just shows that you are not a member of the party because if you were you can NOT be attacking RB because it was RB who saved the MMD to be declared bankrupt by SATA and get de-registered just after election because king cobra sent NAPSA, TIMES OF ZAMBIA, DAILY MAIL AND ZNBC TV on very very old credits which were even accumulated when he was National Secretary the total amount was above…
