Dr Nevers Mumba and HH during the news conference at UPND news conference
MMD faction leader Nevers Mumba says the pact with the United Party for National Development (UPND) is non-existent as it expired after the 2016 general elections. Dr Mumba said the resolution to announce the expiry of the pact was reached at the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.

MMD president Nevers Mumba says the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) met on Wednesday and resolved to end the alliance as it was restricted to the 2016 General Elections.

Dr. Mumba says the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that was signed between the two political parties has since expired.

He has told Journalists in Lusaka that MMD will now direct its energies on the rebuilding and healing of the party.

Dr. Mumba is concerned that the party is not participating in any by election there more reason it should start mobilizing itself ahead of the 2021 General Elections.

And when contacted for comment, UPND 2016 chairman of elections Gary Nkombo said he was not aware of the decision by MMD to announce their separation but only wished them well

    • Nevers and his factional and non existence MMD can hang. They brought nothing to UPND. Nevers was just a chancer hoping when UPND wins HH will give him a job.

    • Nevers and HH cannot be in an alliance and both stand in 2021. Nevers is simply paving the way for his candidature in 2021 after realising that UPND is of no use to him, an indication that he does not see UPND forming government anytime soon. It’s all systems go for PF. They will sweep the 2021 elections virtually unopposed. What with UPND developing cold feet in Kasenengwa for starters?

  3. Next please sit down with Felix Mutati and unite the two factions. As it’s now I don’t see Upnd surviving up to 2021. We don’t want a fragmented opposition. Even if you fail to form government we would like you to have enough numbers in parliament so that the PF don’t do what ever they want. MMD shall be saved.

    • Don’t worry yourself about UPND surviving. Your tactics of buying off the opposition can only go so far. UPND is here to stay my friend no matter how much you wish it to go away. Nevers came alone and he is leaving alone because the bulk of MMD are in PF anyway so sit down and chill.

    • Dudelove I don’t want Upnd to become extinct because it’s healthy for our country. In fact it’s you members who want to finish off your party because you don’t want to accept your shortcomings.

  5. HH denied National prayers and thought to win popularity on his own energies,so God is speaking to him that without God you can’t go an far. UPND minions sit down, accept National Prayers and ask for God,s Guidance or else remove HH on top and put God fearing Person to lead you.

  6. Very bad for democracy, but the current happenings are fore warnings on a much daunting humiliation for UPND and HH in particular. GBM no doubt, must be emptying his office drawers to relocate his party membership . Most likely he will go mute for a while and when he re emerges he would come back with the final death dealing attack on UPND. Better late than never, UPND take a brave introspection of yourself.

  7. I really like Dr. Mumba’s political gymnastics – if this was an Olympic game he would be winning Gold medals through and through.
    This guy is an opportunist and he is a good barometer for the ruling party. THIS SHOWS THAT HE HAS REALISED NOW THAT THE UPND IS SINKING HENCE ABORT SHIP.
    Now PF will be looking for where the Doctor’s destiny is next??? Then that will also be PF’s target to demolish before 2021 elections.

  8. Let all the local looters go and leave only the parts faithfuls. UPND is still as intact as it has ever been. The shaking will strengthen the party even more. To the UPND members, be strong.

  9. UPND has been coned into peace accords. This paved the way for pf to have access to UPND youths. The youth leadership has bee paid off by PF and soon they will be telling their great leader ati “FOOTSEKI”. There are more defections coming. HH has lost it. Watch the space.

  12. I now realise we have too many dull people in Zambia. How can a citizen hope for an opposition party to sink are you dead brain who will make checks on the government on your behalf,If not we need even stronger opposition parties not to ma yes bwana parties .Some of the corruption and bad governance issues we are now seeing is due to the fact that we have weak opposition parties

  13. I now realise why in the USA some people have more voting power than others Zambia will never develop if we keep supporting political parties the way we support The Zambian National Team this is politics this is a matter of life and death.Politics is the difference between high taxes and low taxes it’s the difference between dirty town and a clean town .To be honest the PF is not doing such a great job under ECL we have a lot of room for improvement let’s be objective

  14. PF is working hard, the next politician to buy is HH. Just before filing for 2021 general elections, HH will vanish in thin air running away with campaign money for UPND. A joke of the century.

  15. I will say it again.
    NEVERS MUMBA & MILES SAMPA ARE CHANCERS, & SPECULATORS WHO ARE CUT FROM THE SAME CLOTH.
    Nevers NEVER intended to be with U.P.N.D. He only joined H.H, coz of bitterness after President Jona adopted Mama Inonge as Presidential running mate.
    WATCH THIS SPACE, Nevers will be in P.F within the next 6 months.
    These are the Goons begging President Chakolwa, for nighttime dark corner meetings.
    With “Poloticians” like this, ZAMBIA IS DOOMED!!

  16. Comment: I love Dr Nevers Mumba alot , look people before you condem, Nevers is a strong man and I think he is one of the best quality leaders we have in this country,remember how much he has defended democracy in this country, he was fought from every angle to surrender MMD to fake owners like Felix Mutati , he was fought by former head of state Rupiah Banda (enze kumpasani Moni ayanu) . but he never gave up , Now that the Court has given back MMD to Nevers as legally elected president of MMD , the Same people who fought him have suddenly seen good in him, he has suddenly become attractive to the PF. we know the idea is to give Nevers a job in foreign service so as to empower Felix Mutati,s camp since ligetimate president will be out. That’s PF plan,tell me ,how many times has the PF…

  17. I read most bloggers above saying hh must go & be replaced by so & so. What everyone is overlooking is that this party is financed by hh. And so it was even under mazoka. Thats why when mazoka died hh from nowhere came & took over from his fellow tonga scattering prominent people then. So bottom line is upnd is hh’s pocket. If hh goes upnd will be worse off. Now if you remember before the 2016 elections an audio clip was released were was castigating tongas to focus on the president than MPs because he said they were not contributing their pay to the party. That was the first indication that hh was feeling the pinch on his panama money. Today we can see that the party is broke. And thats why people are running away because they are now expected to finance own campaigns. So things are bad…

  18. PF wants to UPND to die but what they don’t know is that they will be dead before UPND dies. PF is only strong because of power and our resources. Remove the power and they will crumble like a cookie. They might be the present but UPND is the future and it will only be a matter of time before people get fed up with PF. Zambians are very patient so PF don’t take their patience for granted, all this buying of opponents without improving people’s lives is going to back fire. People are still hopeful for PF to better their lives, but their bad human right record and trickery is going to be their down fall. The world hates dictators like ECL, you saw him begging Turkey because no one else wants to him.

  19. Surely why blame apf for the dying of upAndOWN!!It is clearly showing that this moronic, deceitive,tripartite bantustan party has no vision for the party and you want apf to be mobilising for their growth and strength!!No ways.Lucifer is a chancer who relies on other people’s structures.His hatred for FTJC is haunting now!You are not mmd leader,go back and revived victory ministry. Remember,you created your own party and later killed it?!
