Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) other president Felix Mutati on Friday On Nevers Mumba, Mutati said he will not waste his time in courts with the other MMD president Nevers Mumba because the party will not be fixed in court.

Speaking on Friday when opened a two day Luapula provincial conference with a call for “Democracy to thrive in the party and the nation at large, Mr Mutati said that to be president of MMD, you need to go for elections and not the court, adding that it was as simple as that.

“Us as MMD for you to be party President, you need to go for elections, simple and period. In 2012 I stood with him and others but I lost. I did not go to courts, no because that is how democracy is. If you lose you leave for your friends, clap for him (Nevers Mumba) he is our own also. You the people of Chiengi, you are our people.

“There is nothing to worry us here. I have told the National Secretary to deal with the Court issues, have you seen me at court, no, my court is you the people who elected me. We don’t have time we have elections (in 2021). So all these issues of court are in the hands of the National Secretary,” he said.

Mutati further said that MMD was not formed for individuals but for all Zambians and that the party does not impose leaders but elects its leaders by holding periodical elections for the leadership in all structures of the party including the presidency.

The MMD President who is accompanied in Luapula by his two vice Presidents, Mutolo Phiri Vice President political and his counterparty from administration Anne Chungu, National Secretary Raphael Nakacinda and Chairperson for Elections Gaston Sichilima among others said it was important that MMD reorganises itself because they are the people who brought democracy in the country and that small political parties can’t continue to pluck from the MMD and boast of being popular.

He said the founding fathers of the former ruling party formed it so that it can be a vehicle for development and that it should reorganise so that democracy continues to thrive in the country.

“The MMD was founded to give oxygen to democracy for national development. Let us not betray the confidence that our founding leaders gave to us. After the convention in Kabwe we agreed to go for an alliance with the Patriotic Front for the purpose of the people of Zambia on which this party MMD was founded,” he said.

On the alliance with the PF Mutati called on members to concentrate on fixing their party.

“In any marriage every thing is not smooth. We have issues with our alliance PF but these are bedroom issues. For us, ours is to grow our party MMD and they (PF) will give us respect,” he said.

Mutati also told members that NEC picked Luapula province to be the first to have provincial conference because it has a special place in the hearts of MMD members.

He said NEC needed to honour the memory of the first Party President by ensuring that it reorganises Luapula province first and that other provincial conferences would follow soon after Luapula.

Earlier the party members held a minute silent in honouring their departed Presidents Frederick Chiluba and Levy Mwanawasa.

The former ruling party MMD had earlier put its national tours on hold, with the intention to hold the Luapula provincial conference.

With the large masses that went clad in MMD regalia to witness the conference, its yet to be seen what is the mother of democracy has in store for the Zambian people.

    • This guy is hoodwinking these poor souls to keep him in a job. I pity the folks that fall for his trickery. The MMD is a lame duck it cannot even contest any by election meanwhile this guy keeps cheating people that come 2021 he will challenge the PF??? Big JOKER. I am embarrassed to have even backed the idea in the past that this guy would make a progressive President of this here country

    • Finally someone sees it. He will ditch his party and join the PF and be elected party president. But for all that to happen, the Judiciary will have to surprise us.

    • Have you noted anything reasonable in Mutati speech as quoted above?
      “Us as MMD for you to be party President, you need to go for elections, simple and period……”.So is he admitting that all this noise and havoc he has created is intended just to force Never Mumba to organize elections so he can stand against him? Is he admitting that his part of MMD is fake meant to force Mumba to go for elections?
      Absolutely du,ll leaders !!! who do not even know what they are talking about….no wonder we have such bu.lsh.it leaders in government

    • Its perilous for Mutati to behave with impunity because for now he knows the guardians for the rule of law are subservient to the mighty PF that he beds with. Let good governance be restored to Zambian democracy then the country will be sanitized hopefully that the people once again have their dignity back! I can’t wait to be led by the upright new generation leaders!

  1. HH please listen to Mutati elections are not won in courts.if the people want you no matter what you will get to rule Zambia.But your rants and disrespect of the current leadership will haunt you.come up with ideas on how to shape your image as a leader in waiting not PF this or that .we want UPND to demonstrate starting from holding elections within the party not the way you including yourself is imposing yourself.

  4. I thought the courts said Nevers Mumba is the legal party President. How does a president of a party become a mere minister in another party running the government. Its understandable if its just one of the Party MP’s who has become a minister in another party. Why I also question Mutati’s eligibility is like the story of Solomon when a woman lost her baby and the baby of the other woman was brought and the King suggested the child should be cut in half.. The owner of the baby refused but the one who was not was eager that the cut the child.. And we know who the owner was. Same behaviour here Mutati wants this party dead and be swallowed to become part of PF

  5. Both Mutati and Mumba are motivated by their greed for power ,nothing to do with the health of their half dead MMD party.

    • In my opinion, Hazaluza Hagain! No party recognised as a TRIBAL UNION in Zambia can EVER win an election in Zambia. Zambians are smarter.

  7. Mutati cannot waste his time in court when he knows that he will lose as he is an illegal MMD president. That’s why he is now relying on people power to keep him there.
