Nevers dismisses convention call

Multiparty Democracy (MMD) president Nevers Mumba

MMD President Dr. Nevers Mumba has dismissed the resolution by some National Executive Committee Members led by Dr Brian Chituwo for the party to hold an extraordinary convention to elect a new party leadership.

Other NEC members who made the resolution to convene a convention include Michael Kaingu,Dora Siliya, Kapembwa Simbao,Lucky Mulusa and Chembe Nyangu.

But Dr. Mumba has told QFM News in a telephone interview that the statement issued by the NEC members led by Dr Chituwo is not representative of all the NEC members but that of a few with a hidden agenda.

Dr. Mumba states that the NEC members calling for an urgent extraordinary convention want to bring confusion in the party.

He says every political party has problems but that it was very wrong for the few NEC members to state that the MMD has problems considering that it is not the only political party with problems.
