Opposition MMD says the nullification of its Kasenengwa Parliamentary Seat by Supreme Court on Monday has justified calls to have a fresh general election.

MMD leader Nevers Mumba in his special address to the nation demanded that President Sata immediately calls for fresh elections instead of continuing with the by-elections. He charged that if the Parliamentary elections were not free then the election of President Sata was equally not free and fair. But these calls were dismissed by President Sata who called Dr. Mumba as a desperate person.

Following the nullification of another seat and many more anticipated, MMD has insisted that a snap fresh general election be called to stop the by-elections that have been ongoing since the 2011 polls.

“The nullification of the newest seat shows what we have been talking about all along that the PF’s appetite for elections will continue which is why we are calling for general elections,” said Muhabi Lungu who is Director of Communications in the MMD President’s office.

Lungu said the the MMD anticipated the nullification of Kasenengwa seat adding that the trend has been that all cases that have been dismissed but appealed to Supreme court have had these seats nullified.

The MMD leader has stated that 33 of his party’s seats have been targeted.

    • I agree with you,MMD is indeed bouncing back.Some times it’s difficult to know what God is doing.Remember the Joseph story in the Bible.Many negative things happened to Joseph even by his own brothers(family),the likes of immoral Namugala and traitor Kachingwe.But Joseph was just being pushed to a place God wanted him to be in Egypt where he became Prime Minister of today.I just appeal to Dr Mumba and the entire genuine MMD Membership not to despair.God is in control.Zambia Shall Be Saved

      • Humanly speaking,Joseph would be called finished.He was sold as a slave by his own brothers,accused of attempted rape by Potipher’s wife,ended up in prison.But with all these misfortunes,Joseph became Prime Minister.Surely you can not compehend the workings(ways) of God.

      • It’s only the uncircumsised phillistines who can not know what God is doing that can call it the joke of the century.Enilightened pipo do not judge by sight by what they hear(Is.11:3)
