MMD president Nevers Mumba says UPND president Hakainde Hichilema’s apology over his remarks that anyone joining the MMD now is out of their minds was made to him as an individual and not to the former ruling party.
Dr. Mumba says if he accepted Mr. Hichilema’s apology and forgave him it does not mean that all MMD members would do the same.
He says it could happen that despite some MMD members seeing the text apology, they could still be waiting for a public apology from Mr. Hichilema.
Dr Mumba says it is important that political leaders concentrate on why they have been put in their positions.
The MMD leader adds that leaders should also begin to respect each other.
And Dr Mumba says the perceived fight between the MMD and the UPND will die a natural death.
