MMD President Nevers Mumba has described as words spoken too early the insinuation that the MMD under his leadership has lost its relevance to Zambia’s governance system.
Reacting to former MMD and republican vice president Enoch Kavindele’s call for the former ruling party to disband owing to its alleged inability to add value to the governance issues because of its persistent squabbles, Dr. Mumba says the MMD is currently undergoing a reconstructive clean up.
Dr. Mumba has told Qfm News by telephone that people should wait for this clean up to run its course before judging whether the former ruling party is still relevant to the country’s governance system or not.
He says he is not particularly inclined to go into a debate over what Mr. Kavindele is calling for as he does not understand the angle he is talking from.
The MMD president says he does not further know the pressure that Mr. Kavindele is under to make a suggestion of disbanding MMD the more reason he fears to make a direct comment on this suggestion because he will only be helping a source he may not necessary want to help.
Dr Mumba however says his understanding of things is that the relevancy of Democracy can only be judged by the Zambian people.
Dr. Mumba is further of the view that the relevance of any citizen or organization in Zambia can only be judged over a period of time.
He says this is why he does not feel prompted to argue against Mr. Kavindele’s call.
