MMD Women National Chairperson Faustina Sinyangwe has warned her predecessor Catherine Namugala to desist from issuing unwarranted attacks on the MMD leadership.
Mrs. Sinyangwe says Ms. Namugala is no longer a member of the MMD following her expulsion and that her attempts to call for a national convention are lacking in the ideals provided for in the party constitution.
She says Ms Namugala’s motives to fight the MMD through a parallel structure are an act of selfishness and will not yield positive results.
Mrs. Sinyangwe adds that for as far as the MMD is concerned, the next national convention will take place in 2016 and that there is no crisis that would warrant an extra ordinary National executive Committee (NEC) convention.
Mrs. Sinyangwe was speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka this morning.
And speaking at the same occasion, MMD national treasurer Mwansa Mbulakulima has clarified that MMD president Nevers Mumba is not on any salary or allowance for being party president.
Mr. Mbulakulima who is also Chembe Member of Parliament says Dr. Mumba’s services as party president are purely out of sacrifice.
He says allegations by Ms. Namugala that the MMD leader is demanding more contributions from MMD parliamentarians to sustain his lucrative life are unfounded.
