Feature Politics MMD requested to participate in the upcoming Mwansbombwe by Election

The Opposition New Hope Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) in Luapula Province have thanked Party President Dr. Nevers Mumba for honoring Dr. Frederick Titus Jacob Chiluba and have petitioned the Party to participate in the Mwansbombwe by-election.

Last Thursday, during the 30 years celebrations of the MMD, the New Hope MMD Party President Dr. Nevers Mumba honored Dr. Frederick Chiluba as a Champion of Democracy.

New Hope MMD Luapula Provincial Chairperson Mr. Jackson Mwewa, in a statement circulated this morning said that the MMD in the Province was intact and fully behind the leadership of Dr. Nevers Mumba.

“We would like to inform the Nation that the New Hope Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) in Luapula Province is intact and we are fully behind the leadership of Party President Dr. Nevers Sekwila Mumba. We would like to urge the public to ignore reports that some of our members have joined a party led by an expelled disgruntled individual”, Mr. Mwewa said.

Mr. Mwewa then thanked Party President Dr. Nevers Mumba for honoring Dr. Frederick Chiluba.

“Secondly, we the MMD in Luapula are extremely delighted over the decision by our Party President Dr. Nevers Mumba to honor the First MMD President Dr. Frederick Chiluba. Dr. Chiluba who is a son of the Soil in Luapula. Our late President Chiluba did alot for the people of Zambia. This decision to honor him is long awaited and the MMD in Luapula Province are extremely happy over this decision and we would like to thank Dr. Mumba and the MMD”, Mr. Mwewa said.

Mr. Mwewa then said that the People of Luapula Province miss MMD and pleaded with the Party to allow them field a candidate in Mwansbombwe by election.

“The people of Luapula miss the MMD. According to them, life whilst we we’re in power was affordable. Everyday we keep receiving goodwill messages from all the districts in the Province. We have received a petition from the people of Mwansbombwe pleading for us to participate in the upcoming by election following the demise of the late Member of Parliament Hon. Rodgers Mwewa. We have since forwarded that petition to National Secretary Hon. Elizabeth Chitika. By participating in the Mwansbombwe by-election, we shall be honoring the legacy of President Chiluba”, Mr Mwelwa said.

  1. With all his flaws we still have to acknowledge the late president chilubas contributions to multi party democracy. He is the reason parties like upnd can continue behaving like kids without any repercussions. We should be thankful for this freedom

  6. If I had my way, I would call a meeting of all the parties and try to convince them to agree that the party that held the seat be allowed to go unopposed so that there’s no wastage of resources. We’re facing a crisis now and hv to go to general elections in less than 12 months. I know I don’t live in a normal country where it’s so difficult to agree as a nation even on things that are in our collective interest. That’s why u cannot hv me in politics.

  7. I feel that they will participate and might even win the elections.

    Watch Nevers Mumba and his New Hope Team

  8. MMD is still a formidable Party what is failing is its leadership. It’s shocking that even political nonentities now have got guts to insult FTJ after he brought democracy. How many could stand up to KK in those days? It wasn’t easy to unseat KK, even Michael Sata joined the MMD far much later and only after he was fired. FTJ endured UNIP brutality for many years including several attempts on his life. I agree with Mwanta Enoch Kavindele’s call for FTJ to be accorded the respect he deserves because he served the nation. Some people have committed more crimes than even what FTJ was accused of and they know that if he were alive he could’ve dealt with them.

  9. Why? They know themselves better. They are not ready or realise it’d be a waste of deposit.

  10. Ayatollah – When MMD was being formed FTJ was scared to attend the meeting. Talk about the Winas, Chitala, and VJ, yes. Chiluba just sneaked into the leadership of MMD because of Arthur Wina’s problems with alcohol. In its current form, MMD under Nevers Mumba will not create any traction. Nevers Mumba is forcing himself on political relevance – he will not get anywhere.

  11. Isn’t that tribalism for a Luapulan to say that? If a Tonga were to thank the President for honouring Mazoka, what would we say?
