Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) National Secretary Muhabi Lungu has been thrown out of his office by Dr Nevers Mumba’s supporters from the Copperbelt.

Mr Lungu told ZANIS in an interview in Lusaka that supporters of Dr Mumba’s stormed and forced him out of his office.

He said the actions of the cadres are against democratic tenets that the former ruling party espouses.


Mr Lungu said he has since reported the matter to Police to help resolve the situation peacefully and avoid begetting violence.

He said he had instructed his cadres not to retaliate against Dr Mumba’s supporters in order to safeguard peace.

And Mr Mumba has confirmed having received an order of interim Injunction from the high court restraining him and the NEC from interfering with Dr Nevers Mumba’s duties as MMD President until the matter is disposed off by the court.

Mr Lungu said he will consult with his lawyers before issuing any further statement on the interim injunction.
