Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) President Dr. Nevers Sekwila Mumba yesterday said that if Felix Mutati had done what he did to the MMD to the PF, the party in government, he would have been incarcerated at Mukobeko Maximum State prison for treason.

Dr. Mumba who was yesterday’s guest on the Hot Seat program at Hot FM said that the current MMD impasse started in January in 2016 when Republican President His Excellency Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu announced in Chipata that he and the Patriotic Front wanted to work with the MMD.

“Some unscrupulous people led by Hon. Mutati thought that because they had the money and connections, they would illegally remove me and the MMD leadership and impose themselves so that they could go into an alliance with the Patriotic Front,” Dr. Mumba said.

He said that these people met possibly under a tree or at a beer hall where they decided to organise an illegal MMD convention to impose themselves on MMD.

“The Convention they organised was illegal because it was organised by non members and against the Constitution of the MMD, which states that only the National Executive Committee (NEC) can organize a Convention. Imagine, at this Convention our membership wasn’t present, our NEC wasn’t present either. I as Party President was not present. Imagine organizing a FAZ National Conference without FAZ National executive committee members,” remarked Dr. Mumba.

Dr. Mumba said unlike the current practice in politics where Politicians organize Youths with all sorts of weapons like Pangas to attack their opponents, he and his leadership decided to use the civilised way of the Courts of law.

“Because I joined politics to introduce morality and intergrity, I am patient enough to wait for as long as it takes until justice is served. For the record we have won three Supreme Court judgements which have all been chosen as selected judgements. By this I mean that they are landmark rulings which are used in court as referral and precedent setting cases”, Dr. Mumba said.

Dr. Mumba further revealed that what Mutati and his group did to the MMD was simply a Coup by trying to remove a legitimately elected leadership of an organization.

“If Mutati and his group had done to PF what they did to MMD , right now as we speak they would have been incarcerated at Mukobeko Maximum State Prison for Treason for trying to over throw a legitimately elected leadership’, Dr. Mumba said.
