I am not withdrawing-Nevers Mumba

Share

New Hope MMD Presidential candidate Dr. Nevers Mumba has refuted social media rumours suggesting that he has been paid to jeopardize next week’s polls.

Dr. Mumba says the rumours are unfortunate saying they are being peddled by his adversaries to create a false narrative of him.

In a Facebook address, Dr. Mumba said he holds strong values and cannot betray the Zambian people under any circumstance.

And Dr. Mumba said he will on Monday hold a press briefing and has assured his followers that he will only speak against the many ills that are happening in the country.

Dr. Mumba who insists that he is contesting next week’s polls says it is disheartening that people are alleging that he has received huge amounts of money to change his mind.

Meanwhile, Dr. Mumba has asked the Church to remain focused and pray for the nation as the country heads to the polls.

  1. Your only challenge is your opportunistic stance, the moment you said I told them that if the President wants to work with me he has my number, that was your own undoing, because what do you stand for, you know very well that People don’t want this President and you say such things, the best you could have done was to go to the UPND Alliance

  2. I think you are a good man, but getting the vote from Zambians, just forget it. The vote is for the UPND alliance, I am just preparing you mentally

  3. You guys as opposition are just so disorganized. By now the opposition Socialist party must have put up an injunction against PF continued campaigns in Shiwang’andu because of the reported PF violence there, the SG of UPND should have delivered a letter to the PF secretariat on the continued attacks of the UPND candidate by the PF candidate on the Copperbelt with insistence on issue based politics. No matter how much academic these actions would seem they would still go a long way for the record

  4. What impact does it have whether Nevers withdraws or not, he is a complete non factor in these elections, I just don’t understand how Politicians in this country overate themselves. To prepare you opposition people mentally, this is a two horse race, it is between PF and UPND Alliance with a strong possibility of a new government

  5. Wanyeka mudzi! There’s commissioning at break neck speed with a frenzy of promises and fake plans. It will not be surprising to hear a surrogate has been triggered to disturb the polls. Nevers, clear the air mwandi.

  7. The way Nevers Mumba says I was vice president of Zambia, if he only he knew that this is a very ceremonial job which does not even require much thinking, its mainly just assignments from a President more or less chola boy

  8. The CV of being a Vice President is very weak as this is and has been a handpicked job which is just ceremonial in nature

  9. Heard you a number of times saying you were the vice president, that is just a hand picked job and very ceremonial. Tell us what you personally practically initiated as vice president

  10. Thanks MMD, you performed fairly well whilst in government, the PF came only to worsen things, the economy is totally destroyed, I don’t even understand the PF’ case of wanting to come back to power.

  11. You are no factor in this election. You will not win and doubt if you will even get a vote from anyone. Not even your family or Victory church member can vote for you. If I were you , I would get the $1,000, 000 offered and retire quietly.

  14. @Shamboko, the fact that Nervers Mumba is on the ballot then he’s a factor. If he withdraws now then there will be no elections at Presidential level next week. It means the ECZ will invite fresh nominations and conduct elections in 30 days. This means all those Presidential ballot papers will go to waste. So don’t downplay the role of players you don’t support in this elections. Respect others.

  15. He should have just stood as an MP instead of wasting all that ECZ fee…he is just wasting money from his foreign Christian friends as he has a habit of living beyond his means.

  18. Nevers Mumba should just find something meaningful to do with his life….this man is a conman and it looks like he is working with PF on the low….no wonder he is not campaigning…..and probably Lungu promised him a position After August 12th…

    He did the same thing during last elections they gave him a brown envelope and he stopped campaigning for MMD….

  19. He stole embassy furniture at the Zambian embassy in Canada…when he was ambassador in Canada they used to refuse to give any help to Zambians…he had very rude employees working with him….I visited the embassy and I was treated like a piece of shiiiit……all I wanted was information

  20. Church leaders should remain just that – church leaders. Without exception they make bad politicians.

  21. One of the 12 will betray Zambians this coming week.
    We can exclude HH, Lungu, Mumba and Mwamba.
    This leaves 12 and from the debates held, I have an idea of who will chicken out if he can be given back his newspaper and businesses.
    What the majority of Zambians do not know is that the PF Constitution states very clearly that the party will dismantle capitalism. PF IS A SOCIALIST PARTY.

  22. Mumba Nevers Spoiler Kapenda, we know your stinking political acrobatic games especially before, during and after elections! You aren’t intellectually grounded at all, you show yellow when the tough gets going. So fuc.k off!

  23. Anonymous – Do you not see the Chinks donating funds to PF you never say anything? You see them doing free construction works in Chawama for little Daddy’s girl Tasila and giving donations to Ester Foundation you never say nothing. China practically owns you as they own all your strategic assets until you pay them off their loans….isnt that auctioning off the country?
    Now you have these allegations about $300,000 from Vandata Inc donation …what wrong with that? They have faith in HH’s polices …KCM case is still in ongoing and I can see it costing the govt billions of dollars in lost revenue when Vandenta file in a claim.

  24. Atleast with all his weaknesses Nevers Mumba is by far better than Edgar Lungu but not better to rule the country. Edgar has just been a disaster of a President, however its not his fault that he has failed, it is just that God did not give him the gift of leadership

  25. It is utterly illogical to insinuate Mumba is bought by the Patriotic Front. Any one not for UPND is assumed to be PF surrogate. Why would Edgar buy Mumba? For what reason? When you are losing a fight you can even accuse a housefly of blocking your weak punches.
