Operation Save MMD disputes Nevers Mumba’s claims about MMD’s attempted deregistration in 2012

Share

Operation Save MMD has issued a press release, categorically denying allegations made by Pastor Nevers Mumba that the Patriotic Front (PF) led Government attempted to deregister their party in March 2012, and that the MMD never made nor paid any annual returns from 1991 to 2011. The group, which holds political differences with Mumba, has challenged him to produce evidence to support his claims and demanded a written apology for his remarks.

In the press release, Hon. Gaston Sichilima, speaking on behalf of Operation Save MMD, clarified that Pastor Mumba has no right to comment on the attempted deregistration of the party, as he wasn’t party president at the time. The group claims that they had already resolved to pay through the late former President Mr. Rupiah Banda and Mjr. Richard Kachingwe, before Mumba became party president in May of the same year.

Furthermore, Operation Save MMD refutes Mumba’s allegation that the party never made nor paid any annual returns during their 20 years in power. The group asserts that they have copies of all the returns they made in the 20 years they were in power and challenge Mumba to produce evidence to support his claims. They accuse Mumba of attempting to tarnish the reputation of the MMD by lying to further his own interests.

Operation Save MMD also criticized Mumba’s leadership of the party, accusing him of running it like an animal farm and handpicking people for elective party positions who cannot question him on whatever wrong he does. The group believes that Mumba is the wrong person to lecture anyone on democracy when he has never allowed democratic intra-party elections in all organs of the party.

The group concluded by demanding a written apology from Pastor Mumba for lying that the MMD never paid annual returns during their 20 years in power. They have also offered to testify alongside the then Registrar of Societies, Hon. Clement Adeleki, to dispute Mumba’s allegations.

  1. “The group claims that they had already resolved to pay through the late former President Mr. Rupiah Banda and Mr. Richard Kachingwe, before Mumba became party president in May of the same year.”

    These people are jokers they are asking Nevers to back up his claims yet they themselves are hiding behind someone who is no longer with us that they agreed with verbally. A party full of clowns that was once the mighty MMD…I dont know why no Political author writes a book titled “How to destroy a Political Party” this book can be used as a reference. PF is headed in the same direction where they want to retain Lazy Lungu instead of moving forward.

  2. It’ll be more befitting for the group to call itself “Operation Kick out Nervers Mumba and not operation save MMD. Nervers is holding on to power illegally and in abrogation of the MMD Constitution. His 2nd and final term expired long ago. He’s a man without shame. All those that were elected with him left long ago. He’s nashala neka Pastor

  3. Nevas Mumba is a disgrace to the men of the pulpit. He’s got a forked tongue. He’s not ashamed to lick some private body part for favors. He should repent and cleanse himself of the shame he’s brought to the once vibrant and motivational Pastor Nevers Mumba of Victory Ministry.

  4. Nevers Mumba stole Embassy furniture in Canada and he was fired for insubordination and corruption by Levy Mwanawasa…
    This Man is a big crook

  5. But this group’s arguments are importent. Ati: He has no right to comment on the attempted deregistration of the party, as he wasn’t party president at the time.
    Does that fact deny him the right to comment? Try and reason properly

  6. Nevers Mumba is very ungrateful he deliberately mispresented the facts just to turnish the reputation of the party and all the past MMD Presidents as if they were not responsible or not respecting the law bcoz he is aware that the party complied with it’s statutory obligations and they submitted the annual returns at the Registrar of Societies every year starting from the time of President Chiluba and these records are in files which are kept by Chitika at her home where she shifted the MMD party Secretariat after failing to pay rentals at Kabulonga office
