The MMD National Executive Committee meeting resolved on Saturday to expel Mr Nyangu and 17 others including Members of Parliament for gross indiscipline after the endorsed and campaigned for other presidential candidates in the January 20 presidential election.
But Mr Nyangu said expelled the 18 is a sign of madness on the part of MMD President Dr Nevers Mumba.
He said there is no way a single individual in the name of Dr Mumba can expel all those senior members without following procedure.
‘This is just madness and rubbish. Dr Mumba can’t expel me because i was elected at the convention and i can only be removed by a convention of if i choose not to stand. As President, he has no powers to expel any member,’ Mr Nyangu said.
He said the MMD constitution does not give absolute power the President of the party.
‘He is now abrogating our party’s constitution at will and some of the members he is expelling have dragged the party to court and the court process is in motion and he is now showing contempt of court by this action,’ he said.
Mr Nyangu added, ‘as for me, am not even worried because that action does not amount to anything. It is just madness.’
