HH lead UPND officials to give Mumba solidarity

Movemement for Multiparty Democracy – MMD leader Dr Nevers Mumba who was earlier arrested by the Zambia Police has declared that he will go on hunger strike until justice prevails.

 

Mumba has been charged with criminal trespass after he allegedly stormed ZNBC studios on the evening of Friday September 9, 2016.

 

Mumba who has also been denied bail said he will not eat anything in protest.

 

Meanwhile United Party for National Development – UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema led an entourage in offering solidarity with Mumbai.

 

And  speaking to Journalists, Hichilema described the event as a clear sign of dictatorship.

He says he is however not surprised because President-elect Edgar Lungu is a dictator who has planned to arrest all the opposition leaders.

 

Meanwhile Dr Mumba has issued the following statement:

 

This is a journey for the brave, for the determined, in order to change the course of our country, so that we can have a country that is loving, a country that is tolerant, and a country that does not intimidate it’s citizens. I said these words at my arrival at the airport in 2012 when I came to enter this arena of politics as MMD President.

 

Today, these words ring more true than ever before as the current regime starts to exert a tighter grip on draconian tendancies, coupled with the shut down of the independent media in order to numb our people and create a dictatorship.

 

The Police surrounding my home earlier today to search for alleged “stolen firearms” is an example of the intimidation we continue to face as leaders. Even though not a firearm or ammunition was found, I have been placed under arrest on tramped up charges of “criminal trespass” on ZNBC, our state owned public broadcaster where i had gone to verify the source of a story that was aired on the news earlier in the week.

 

To all our supporters out there, please pray for me and my colleagues. Remember, this is just the beginning, today it is me and tomorrow it may be someone else. I want you to be strong when they intimidate, and accuse you falsely. For even our LORD, Jesus Chris suffered many things for the salvation of man, and I, Nevers Mumba, are but a servant and no servant is greater than the master.

 

Finally, I wish to address those of our friends who, at the hieght of this struggle, will choose to take the easy path of indifference. I ask you the question, how do you want the future generations to remember us? As the generation that threw away all the hard earned gains in our respect for fundamental freedoms and in the economy, just because we were too timid to express our views and opinions?, or do you want to be part of a brave and determined group of people that chose to stand up and be counted as having stood, with a clear conscious before both God and fellow man that you did all you could to serve the cause of JUSTICE, MORALITY, INTEGRITY, PROGRESS, FREEDOM and BROTHERHOOD, for this, our beloved nation of Zambia? I know that on this matter, some of you will chose the truth, and some of you will choose a lie, but ultimately, in this game, there are no bystanders, CHOOSE, you will CHOOSE.

 

Let Freedom Ring!!! Let Freedom Ring!!!!

  1. God, please help your children. You cannot be a bystander while Edgar keeps on locking them one by one even when he knows that he is the one who started it all, he stole the election. STEALING is breaking not only the Zambian law, but Your Moral law, the TEN commandments. So please punish the thieves… and not vice versa. Here me o Lord, my God, in Jesus’s name and for His sake alone, Amen.

    • We only hope that he was not tempted, out of political expedience, to ‘prophesy’ that HH would win the elections.

      And hopefully, HH and GBM did not base their hopes on ‘the possible prophecy’

      If such may have happened as an error, I think there is still a way of reasoning it in a Godly way, than resort to infighting people to use criminal methods to try and effect the ‘possible prophecy’.

    • We PF supporters are the majority and democracy numbers matters most. Nevers has now remembered to fast when his yappings have landed him in remand prison. Next its HH and for him even the judiciary won’t help since he has been insulting them at every given opportunity. For GBM it’s worse that big tommy is not used fasting.

  4. Unfortunately for Mr. Mumba he will be totally ignored. He is not a factor in Zambian politics. This is sour grapes. Mumba has been rejected everywhere he has gone. Even his party MMD rejected him. This is actually a hunger strike in futility. Only HH and possibly GBM care. Do not be surprised if Mumba will vie for UPND leadership was HH to quit. He will then run this party down because of his high appetite for good living.

  7. I wish to appeal to Dr. Mumba to end his hunger trike. He can be on hunger strike if he is fighting normal people. The ECL Pf hi fighting is not a group of normal people.

  13. Who is now SADC Chair person. I think he needs to call for a meeting to discuss the deteriorating situation in Zambia. If he fails to be pro active and things unfold, it means that SADC will become irrelevant.
