Nevers Mumba isn’t “job fit” for MMD – Lucky Mulusa

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) and National Executive Committee (NEC) member Lucky Mulusa has said that Party President Dr Nevers Mumba is not capable of taking the MMD forward, reports Thom Shonga for the Zambian Eye.

Mulusa said this in a recent interview on the Zambian Eye’s Hot Seat program.

The former Solwezi Central Member of Parliament says that Dr Mumba and team have failed the MMD and that it is costing the party’s relevance in the country’s political discourse.

“We elected Dr Mumba in May 2012 more or less in a business style of hiring a manager and giving them a set of performance areas, indicators and timelines. We noticed that there seems to be a problem in terms of achieving a “job fit” and delivering agreed deliverables,” explained Mulusa.

The former MP further said that the MMD is bleeding membership and is quickly losing relevance. He demanded for a change in the leadership and that it cannot continue in a “business as usual” style.

Asked by moderator of the Hot Seat program Owen Miyanza what was the problem with Dr Mumba, Mr Mulusa said that under Dr Mumba’s stewardship the MMD has failed to undertake the necessary activities that would have made it stay relevant.

“We have failed to visit and stay connected with the grassroots. We have failed to engage on important national issues. We have more often than not failed to field candidates in certain local government by-elections,” Mulusa said.

Mulusa whose parliamentary seat was nullified by Supreme Court and has since petitioned the nullification further said that fund raising was another failure of the current MMD executive.

He said the MMD NEC has failed to show ingenuity on the political landscape. This has been perpetuated by DR Mumba’s exclusive leadership style.

Mulusa explained that Dr Mumba has his own inner circle that includes Muhabi Lungu and Bowman Lusambo who fail to advise or wrongly advise him.

“For instance, instead of going for the Litunga’s wife’s funeral, he chose to be in Lusaka issuing unproductive statements with Lusambo,” Mr Mulusa said.

Mulusa said that he and his colleagues feel that politics are not Dr Mumba’s calling.

The Zambian Eye Hot Seat program is hosted on its Facebook Group Page that has more than 25,500 members and has in the past hosted some of Zambia’s eminent persons such as MMD founder member Mr Akashambatwa Mbikusita-Lewanika, ABZ President Fr Frank Bwalya and Katuba MP Jonas Shakafuswa among others.

  3. Mulusa and the gang should take over a dead carcass and we will see if they can perform a miracle to raise it. Yes, they will perform a miracle as we already know that they are now an extension of the Bwinjimfumu cartel working agianst Nevers so as to align MMD with PF and preserve the bemba voting block intact. In due course in the second term if PF makes it, they will be appointed into government. Walls and trees see and talk no matter where and Zambians are not dull anymore.

  4. Mr. Mulusa and Dr. Nevers Mumba, you are the two people whom i have admired so much in today’s Zambian Political circles. Seriously this move of removing Dr. Nevers Mumba is not welcome. You cant blame Dr.Mumba on what is happening in MMD. Instead give him support. Dr. Mumba is not has bad as u put it. Bring in a new leader trust me things must even be worse.
    Remenber you just lost Presidential elections. It is expected that u can lose a couple of by elections. Put seriously every time Mumba appears on the scene. He brings in a sense of hope.
    i saw him recently in Solwezi and have met him a couple of times, in my opinion that man is truly a Presidential material. If u really love MMD, for now give him support.
    And the ideal of embarrassing leaders in public creates questions. Mr. Mulusa you are my hero please and i have been following you, i believe you are a listening person. Support your leader and when your time comes u will also be support.
    Am non Partisan, but i believe that we need a strong opposition in our Country.May the almighty God guide u.

  6. What could Nevers do when he was fought from the day he became MMD president to date? How can the man be expected to perform when he was not given any chance to operate?

    In my view, Nevers is a strong man among men because he has not faltered in the midst of so much difficulties.It requires God to intervene because no man could manage. Thanks be to the God of Pastor Nevers Mumba. Now quickly do an injunction preventing Mutati and his PF crooks from masquerading as MMD and stop them from interfering with MMD.
    Use 5the police to quickly remove them from the secretariat.
