Nevers Mumba Criticizes Proposed Opposition Alliance

Share

MMD President Nevers Mumba has expressed skepticism regarding the proposed opposition alliance, asserting that it is primarily motivated by animosity towards President Hakainde Hichilema rather than a genuine commitment to serving the people of Zambia.

Dr. Mumba highlighted that certain remarks made by leaders within the opposition suggest a movement fueled by hatred against President Hichilema. He voiced concerns that such sentiments could undermine the potential for constructive dialogue and cooperation among political parties.

During an interview with ZNBC News, Dr. Mumba emphasized that the proposed alliance could also inadvertently serve the interests of former President Edgar Lungu, who currently lacks a political party. He urged respect for the MMD’s decision not to join the alliance, stressing that it is the party’s democratic right to make independent choices.

The statement from Dr. Mumba comes amidst ongoing discussions among opposition parties to form a united front against the ruling party. A press conference held on January 31, 2024, saw political parties announcing their intention to establish a broad cross-cutting national movement. Mr. Sakwiba Sikota SC, President of the United Liberal Party (ULP), has been appointed as the interim Chairperson of the grouping, with Ms. Chishala Kateka, President of the New Heritage Party (NHP), serving as Coordinator.

The primary task for the interim leadership is to finalize the name for the group and seek registration with the Registrar of Societies. Once formalized, additional political parties expressing willingness to collaborate will be integrated into the alliance.

Participating political parties in the proposed alliance include the United Liberal Party (ULP), New Heritage Party (NHP), Citizens First (CF), Forum for Development and Democracy (FDD), Golden Party of Zambia (GPZ), National Democratic Congress (NDC), and the Patriotic Front (PF).

    • When we formed MMD this man was hell bent to see us fail and end up in jail. His wish to destroy the MMD was granted when Levy Mwanawasa appointed him VP….and he succeeded to destroy the party.

  4. God has a way of dealing with hypocrites. At 64yrs he’s still living a life of deceit and bootlicking. Nervers has no shame, just like John Mambo. These men can’t advise anybody. They have no integrity. My appeal to the youth is not to make such characters as your role models because you’ll end up like them. They had opportunities to make a honest life but they squandered it

    • @ Deja Vu, it seems you haven’t been close to Mumba and his family or to those that have worked with them. His isn’t a wife that can see anything wrong with what he does. They’re the same

  5. TO BE HONEST DOES MMD EXIST? BA NEVERS ARE YOU SURE OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING AND DOING IS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE? MMMMM……………. KAYA MWANDI WHEN THINGS ARE BAD OR WHEN IS LOOKING FOR A JOB YOU CAN DO ANYTHING MMMM BUT ABAKULU TUKWETE PA ZED Y KANSHI WHO HAS BEWICTEHD ABA KULU BAPA ZED…………………

    • So was HH jealous and bitter when he was looking for alliances…. you know why we are stagnant? Because we support anything whether wrong or right.

  6. Nevers is like a wave that is tossed to and fro. He is an egocentric person who sees himself as the best. Better than any other person. He is inadvisable and too puffed up for nothing. He left the church in the hands of his nephew, Lubuto Nsofu. But due to his selfish motives, he came back and started claiming authority over the church. Lubuto left and started running his own church without Nevers hands on it. This is how selfish this man of gold is. MMD is a skeleton and a shell of itself, as long as Never is a presisent.

    • Exactly my thought! If he doesn’t want the alliance he should just keep calm.
      I don’t see anything wrong with the formation of an alliance, as Tikki has stated, it’s a democracy. The voters will choose what they want.

  7. Papa Mumba you are always a disappointment to the Zambian people, you always disgrace yourself in public why? There’s no ability of leadership in your statements anymore can you please try to be quiet for sometime? Because you no longer make sense at all.

  8. What is this disgraced ar$e licking convict on about? Nevers please do us all a favour and start stamp collecting as a hobby…who knows you might just be good at it as you are good at nothing.

  9. IF YOU HATE KAIZAR ZULU THEN YOU SHOULD HATE ECL. IT IS KAIZAR ZULU WHO MADE ECL PRESIDENT AFTER HE GOT FIRED BY PRESIDENT SATA; HE WAS ENTERING STATE HOUSE ILLEGALLY TO SEE ECL. KAIZAR ZULU IS THE ONE WHO GOT G12 FORMS FOR CB AND LUSAKA AND THEN FEEDING CHULU WITH WRONG FIGURES. THE CLINICAL OFFECER!

  10. The behavior being exhibited by Dr. Nevers Mumba is very bad. Mr. Mumba can play a big role to reconcile the two leaders former President and Current President

  11. The behavior being exhibited by Dr. Nevers Mumba is very bad. Mr. Mumba can play a big role to reconcile the two leaders former President and Current President. You are a pastor blessed are the peacemakers

  12. When known men of “God” turn awe from God less alabapa ubupuba. The MMD once a vibrant political party was drowned by one Nevers Mumba because of his very poor leadership and lack of political party organisational skills. He now waits in his office on a laptop for the crumbs to fall from Hakainde Sammy Hichilema’s table. Shame isn’t it he destroyed the party that most of us worked so hard to support. The circulating audio about miles Sampa is a perfect fit for this Nevers Mumba.

  13. The lack of critical thinking among our citizens is incredible. Thinking and analysis is free people. Take a look, we are living with a huge debt burden caused by somebody (ECL) who does not even realize how much trouble he has caused for this country and its people. This is exactly what Albert Einstein meant with the quote “You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”

  14. Forming a coalition by these parties is the best thing they can do, for them to become an effective opposition. I can’t believe that Nevers would oppose that. I don’t think he’s that dumb not to know that this is a good idea. Most likely he’s just trying to win favors with HH. Shame on him.
