Felix Mutati at the MMD Secretariat

Zambia Centre for Inter-Party Dialogue (ZCID) has explained that it base it’s recognition of Felix Mutati from the official records at the Registrar’s office.

ZCID said this in a statement below:

As Zambia Centre for Inter-Party Dialogue (ZCID), we have received various queries from the media as well as members of the general public regarding our position on the MMD leadership.

As a Center, our basis for recognition of the leadership of any political party, whether it be the PF, UPND or indeed MMD, is based on the official records as maintained by the Registrar of Societies. Based on our most recent search of the records at the Registrar of Societies, we noted that President Mutati’s leadership is currently the bonafide leadership of the MMD.

However, if there will be any changes in the official record of the MMD leadership at the Registrar of Societies, then we as ZCID will at that time revise our recognition accordingly.

It must be noted that, in future, should any of the parties that are contesting the MMD leadership obtain a court judgement that changes the status quo; it will be their individual responsibility to notify the Registrar of Societies about any such judgement and to cause the official records to be amended accordingly.

As Zambia Centre for Inter-Party Dialogue, we wish to make it categorically clear that it is not part of our mandate to interpret court judgments of feuding parties of any political

We base our recognition strictly on the official record of the Registrar of Societies, at any given time. The centre shall remain neutral, and open for further engagements in its quest to deepen our country’s democracy.
Thank you.

  2. ZCID is surely a moribund entity, do you just pick any record without questioning even if it is laced with poisonous chalice like MMD brouhaha? ZCID must disband immediately they are up to no good but PF Party Surrogates!

  3. So these zcid do not recognise the Zambian Courts just like their god parents the PF?

  4. The official records are now outdated as a result of the court decision.
    It surprises me how the ZCID expected the records to disappear automatrically. Records will still be there until they are updated. ZCID must respect the authority of the courts. They must not adopt the system of disrespecting the law from the PF. That is why people are questioning the validity of ZCID. Why should they start with a mistake even before they begin sitting? The answer given for choosing Mutati is not genuine. They were dictated who to choose by the PF.

  5. Iam very surprised with our institutions.On interview Oxgen of Democracy (Prime TV) Kalani Muchima told Nakachinda that the Records shows Nevers Mumber not Mutati.The court also ruled in favour of Never Mumba.So which stance are you now taking?Pehalps tell the registra to publish the names of the two to end this impase.
