Nevers Accepts UPND-MMD Pact Vice Presidency, As Cracks Emerge In MMD

FILE PICTURE: Mumba sharing a light moment with RB
OPPOSITION Movement for Multi-Party Democracy [MMD] leader Pastor Nevers Mumba has accepted to be vice President in what is believed and expected to be the UPND-MMD working pact.

Sources within the two opposition parties have hinted to Tumfweko that the two leaders arrived at the decision in a meeting held recently at a named Lusaka residential Lodge.

However, this development has angered some senior Leaders in the MMD who feel the former ruling party deserves a much more Luminary position than the vice Presidency saying that it is the second largest political party in Zambia.

The sources also disclosed that the meeting which was chaired by both Mumba and Hakainde was characterized by Hakainde’s big spending talk.

“Hakainde is a Problem and that is why he even failed to accept the vice Presidency in the PF-UPND pact because of his pomposity”, said the source.

The source also explained that Pastor Mumba was desperate for any position in the pact as long as it works well for the elimination of the Patriotic Front [PF] from government.

Sources claimed that some members within the MMD NEC like Chembe Nyangu, Dora Siliya and Major Richard Kachingwe have strongly opposed Pastor Mumba’s decision adding that this will divide the party.

The NEC members have since threatened to leave the Party or diselect Mumba if he doesnt rescind the decision.

But when contacted for a comment, MMD spokesperson Dora Siliya could neither confirm nor deny.

    The editor of Tumfweko. I had thought this publication was based on reporting on true events! Please retract the story that UPND and MMD have entered a pact and that Dr Mumba is Veep.
    Firstly MMD has no pact with UPND and no such meeting took place between myself and Mr Hichilema. In any case if there were to be discussions between the two parties, it is not the presidents to make such decisions but entire party structures would have to be involved.
    MMD is not desperate for any arrangement. There are no cracks in MMD as purported by the article. Our team is united in rebranding our party and position ourselves to form government at the next election. We however continue to enjoy cordial relations with several opposition parties including the UPND.
    There is absolutely no truth in this story. I wonder what your intentions are. Please check your facts with institutions and individuals named in your articles otherwise you shall lose credibility.
    Nevers Sekwila Mumba

    The sight is indeed a gossip one.Tahnks to the Party president for a quick response.
    MMD is the Largest politcal Party in Zambia.

    Local Govt seats:
    MMD 572
    PF 522 there about
    UPND 263 ” ”
    Parliamentary seats:
    PF 64 there about
    MMD 52
    UPND 30
    So its a fallacy to say the MMD is a dying party.MMD is an institution governed by the committee system.MMD has changed its Leadership 4 times.No individual can claim suppremacy on the Party as compared to other parties.
    MMD shall continue to be rellevant to many Zambians out there as a pioneer of Democracy and Freedoms in Zambia.You can can not erass History.
    The libralization of he economy from 1991 to 2001.
    HIPIC complition point and the debt cancellation from 2001 to 2011 these were complex issues we dealt with and won MMD a lot of kudoos with the people of our great country.The list list is endless compared to the wrongs that could occure in some spots.

    whether the story is a lie or true MMD died when Nevers was chosen has party president u clergy man never resigned from his party the same manner he left his flocks in church is the same way he left his party members so for MMD does not exist. if they chose mutati or situmbeko i would have been an MMD carder for the first time. so both UPND and MMD have no Vision unless they change leaders.

  15. Kaesha   August 25, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    If this is true. Its a sheer waste of resources. The next President is Elias Chipimo Jnr. I have seen it from his humility, he accepted the invitation to go with the President last time not because he was obliged to becuase he is wise. I voted for PF last time i will vote for Chips nxt tym not that i want to because i want batata batushe kano ngaba Lubinda bakeminina awe ninshi ni PF. FOR NOW IS pabwato go go go!

    Nevers at it again, he sold his own party for VP position in Levy’s rule, now he is doing the same to MMD, Ekupwa uku nomba emuemudi……..

  17. non political   August 25, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    the all issue lives much to be desired. i feel pf are still in government until 2016 so y pact now instead of ensuring that pf works by checks and balances. the response have seen from mumba questnable i hope its the president of the pary responding to story. pastor lead us to good politics and we will stand to support you. do not be afraid you are odained by God and no will remove that from you.

    Good news! Or is it?

  24. Gluco   August 26, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    You PF thugs, what’s the excitement all about? This ka PF website is full of lies and propaganda.

  25. Jojo   October 15, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    But honestly what do you expect? The MMD coming back to power? No matter who the MMD can filled in as presidential candidate it cant win an election now. Dora and all others including RB know that exactly. All they need to do at the moment is to ride on the support of another party like the UPND to be a subordinate power sharing patner in government. It will work PF thugs. It will not devide them.

  26. Jojo   October 15, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    After all Sata has failed to fight corruption and is now indulging in it deeply through RDA. Is MMD worse? Hell NO.
