Opposition Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) president Nevers Mumba has maintained that the speculated hinted political comeback of former President Rupiah Banda is still not on the former ruling party’s current agenda.
The Opposition Alliance on which it has been suggested Mr. Banda should make a political comeback has left the decision for Mr. Banda to contest the position of Alliance leader, whose elections are yet to be held; to the MMD itself to which he is a member.
But Dr. Mumba has told Qfm News by telephone that the debate on Mr. Banda’s political comeback is not the former ruling party’s issue for discussion at the moment because the matter it is not even on the discussion table of the MMD.
Dr. Mumba says the MMD has its program it is following and therefore it refuses to be drawn in the current debate of the former Head of States political comeback as it does not help the objectives that the MMD has set in its program.
He says this is besides the fact that Mr. Banda himself has not stated whether he wants to stand on the MMD when he eventually makes his hinted political comeback.
The MMD president says it will be thus unfair for Mr. Banda and the MMD itself if he to part the said
