Those who want to bring confusion in the MMD should go and fight with others because the former ruling party is now a focused party which wants to bounce back into Government, MMD president Nevers Mumba has advised.
“I will not tolerate nonsense in MMD, those who want to bring confusion in the party should go to their homes where they will be fighting with their wives or husbands, not in MMD. Those who want to come back to MMD should follow the right procedure, instead of bringing confusion.
“I have been fighting for this party, I have gone to well-wishers to beg for money for running this party. As a clergyman, I have a spirit of knowing those who are coming to MMD to cause confusion and I will be able to point out,” he said.
Speaking yesterday at Jubilee Lodge in Kitwe at the Show Grounds during a seminar for constituency and district leaders, Dr Mumba said he was not there when the MMD lost the 2011 elections to the PF and so no one should accuse him of having destroyed the former ruling party.
He said he took over the MMD when the party had nothing in its account and that he had to start looking for money to run the party and fight battles which President Michael Sata allegedly started against the party.
“No one should accuse me of destroying the MMD because I was not there when the former ruling party lost the 2011 elections to the PF. I was just told that during campaigns, you were putting the MMD Chitenge material for campaigns everywhere. Trees and Dogs were wearing the MMD Chitenge material for campaign, but you lost.
“So don’t accuse me of having destroying the MMD. When I took over the MMD, it had nothing in its account and I had to start looking for money to run the party. I also had to stand firm and fight battles against President Michael Sata who tried by all means to destroy the MMD,” Dr Mumba said.
He said he had spent more than K150million on his tour of the Copper belt where he was doing a fact finding mission regarding the strength of the party.
Dr Mumba said he was impressed that the MMD was strong on the Copperbelt, but advised the party members to reject any attempts by some senior party officials who wanted to bring confusion when the party had attained its stability.
