MMD cadres sing outside DEC

Movement for Multi -Party Democracy (MMD) National Youth Secretary, Tobias Kafumukache, has warned other opposition political parties to stay away from the wrangles that have rocked the former ruling party.

Mr Kafumukache said the ongoing issues surrounding the MMD presidency is an internal party issue and that the MMD youth wing expects no outsiders to interfere with the matter.
Mr Kafumukache made the remarks after some alleged reports that some UPND sympathizers and UPND medial aligned organisations have launched a campaign to support embattled MMD leader Nevers Mumba.
In a statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Mr Kafumukache has since warned of stern action against outsiders championing the support of Mr Mumba and urged them to immediately stop.
Mr Kafumukache stated that it is the members of MMD themselves who have resolved to remove Mr Mumba because he has failed to lead the party.
And Mr Kafumukache has said the MMD has drastically lost popularity due to Mr Mumba’s crippled style of leadership.
Mr Kafumukache has further maintained that an emergent extra ordinary convention is the only solution which will help to rejuvenate the party and to save it from total collapse.
The former ruling party’s leadership is divided following the decision by top party officials who are calling for the removal of current president, Nevers Mumba and convening of a convention to elect fresh office bearers.
