MMD in Western province elated with RB comeback
Kaoma, November 20, ZANIS —MMD members in the 16 districts of Western Province are elated with the comeback and subsequent adoption of Rupiah Banda as the party’s candidate in the forthcoming presidential by-elections.
In a statement issued to ZANIS, Western Province Publicity and information Secretary David Nchengu said the adoption of Mr Banda and the suspension of party president Nevers Mumba is in accordance with the provisions of the MMD constitution.
Mr Nchengu said the stance taken by National Executive Committee should be supported by all well-meaning MMD supporters in the country.
He said Mr Banda is better placed than Dr Mumba to win the republican presidency and urged the tele-evangelist turned politician and his supporters to rally behind the former head of states.
Mr Nchengu appealed to MMD members in the province and across the country to support the candidature of Mr Banda and vote for him in order for the party to bounce back to power.
Mr Nchengu also praised party national secretary, Muhabi Lungu, for being firm and bold in suspending Dr Mumba for gross misconduct.
