Mr LUNGU has denied issuing any statement, or authorizing anyone to do so on behalf of the party.

He has indicated that whatever decision will be arrived at will be communicated to the public through official channels of the party.


This is contained in a press statement issued to ZNBC News in Lusaka today, signed by Mr LUNGU.

Earlier, today statement apparently issued by the MMD media team claimed that the MMD had adopted Dr MUMBA as its candidate for the upcoming presidential election.




  1. It’s because Mr Mumba just like Kabimba are hard to sell to the Zambian people. Dr Mumba is not popular any where including his village in Chinsali…. At least RB has Eastern province, western province and some parts of Muchinga.

  2. Why so much confusion in Political Parties this year? Does it mean our so called leaders can’t raise above pettiness and resolve their. This level of selfishness from people who want to lead this country is dangerous,
