NEVERS MUMBA FIRES MUHABI LUNGU, I AM NOW BACK IN CHARGE;

Filed under: Statements |

NMUMBAMMD President Nevers Mumba has in the last few moments announced he has relieved the party’s National Secretary Muhabi Lungu and his deputy Chembe Nyangu from their positions.

The development comes after the Supreme Court ruled Mumba was the official MMD Presidential candidate.

Lungu infamously staged an internal palace coup with others and installed former President Rupiah Banda as the party’s President.

The political future of Banda and his long line of vociferous supporters like Lungu, Kaingu and Lucky Mulusa has now been thrown in limbo as they had already begun printing of campaign materials in Banda’s name.

Mumba is now back fully charge of the former ruling party and is expected to continue purging and ridding it of those that had conducted the mutiny.
