MMD President Dr. Nevers Mumba speaks to the Clergy from various congregations at Victory Ministries in Kasama on 11th February 2016The Electoral Commission of Zambia says it will proceed with the application of ‘ousted’ MMD leader Nevers Mumba as the party’s Presidential candidate in this year’s elections.

ECZ Public Relations Manager Chris Akufuna told Hot FM News that as far as the Commission is concerned, Dr. Mumba has paid his nomination fee to contest as MMD Presidential Candidate in this year’s general polls.

The former ruling party has been split into two factions after the Felix Mutati-led group successfully held a convention to replace Dr. Mumba with the former Lunte Member of Parliament. The convention also elected a new National Executive Committe (NEC).

The faction further resolved to go into an electoral pact with the ruling PF, meaning its leader Mutati will not take part in the presidential election but will endorse the candidature of President Edgar Lungu instead. However, they have indicated that they will field candidates at parliamentary and local government level.

But the Mumba faction insists that the former republican Vice-president will be the MMD presidential candidate and have gon ahead to pay the presidential nomination fee.

  1. I don’t know what is wrong with “movements”. Remember the MDC T, MDC M and MDC D in Zimbabwe. Here in Zambia now we have MMD N and MMD F. Circus. Just disband this movement and form a party.

    • I can assure you,the spineless Mutati group(movement for mutati democracy-‘mmd’) is going nowhere.Mutati group only exists in minds of immoral characters and wako ni wako paper of Richard Sakala’s Zambia Daily Lies Newspaper.How can expelled and suspended ‘members’ convene a convention of the Party that expelled and suspended them?.Only the enemies of logic can tolerate this circus and nonsense.

  2. The ECZ riggers know that if now allowed, Nevers Mumba will endorse HH. If Nevers Mumba is wise, he will do what Mutati did by endorsing someone with real chance to win.

  4. ECZ and their fellow criminals PF have realized that Mutati’s endorsement of Edgar amounts to maximum 20 votes. They are realising that it is actually Nevers who has a sizeable following and so the plan is to allow him stand so that he can split the vote. This is exactly how they run government- trial and error.

  6. Right. Kubuta. It’s kids play. I pity Nevers. It’s all because of lack of principle just like his colleague Joshua Banda from Northmead Church.

    • @ Paulo-No,the traitor or Judas is Josha Banda who sided with the Rupiah goup all along just like in the Bible in 1Kings1:7, the Priest Abiathar sided with the wrong group-Adonijah who impossed himself as king without following procedure.Later everything came to normal when Kind David did what was supposed to be done in installing the King of Israel-1Kings1:32-50.

  7. People who think of a sitting government to rig are just paranoid because in 1991 and2011 the opposition won the elections. If people have spoken through the vote is irreversible. Let all parties campaign and convince the electorate.
