Felix Mutati

Shortly after suffering rejection from the Patriotic Front, a severe setback in his bid to take over the leadership of the MMD through the backdoor, the Supreme Court dealt another heavy blow on Felix Mutati as it reaffirmed its verbal ruling made on Friday 29th July, 2016 to overturn the Judge Sikazwe Lusaka High Court ruling which the Felix Mutati clique relied upon to hold a convention in Kabwe where Mutati was imposed unopposed as President of the MMD.

Speaking after the formal delivery of the reading of the written judgement by Supreme Court Judge Nigel Mutuna, MMD National Secretary Reverend Reuben Sambo has said this ruling effectively reverts the party leadeship to the status quo of what obtained before the Judge Sikazwe ruling with Dr. Nevers Mumba and the MMD NEC at the helm of the party.

The Supreme Court has refered the matter back to the Lusaka High Court for determination of the legality of the Convention as it was not part of the appeal to the Supreme Court.

Reverend Sambo has therefore requested the Mutati group to now be magnanimous and return all party assets including all motor vehicles that they wrongly confiscated and were now distributing to unauthorized persons including an independent mayoral candidate. He has also requested the group to vacate the Party Secretariat without further delay.

  3. Someone, please explain to me. Does this now mean Nakachinda and Mutati have been silenced? They have also been very vocal that they are the legal MMD leaders.

  13. This appears as stalemate. Noone can return assets as things stand. Until the high Court decides otherwise Mutati is within his rights to call himself MMD president. But let the court decided on the legitimacy of the convention. Reverand Sambo should not be carried away at this stage. It appears both Mumba and Mutati will spend most of their time in courts of law, which is unfortunate.
