Filed under: Statements |

muhabi bathExpelled MMD National Secretary Muhabi Lungu is this morning expected to hand himself in to the Police after a man hunt was launched for his arrest.

Mr Lungu is wanted by Police for organising an illegal meeting.

In an interview, Mr Lungu confirmed that he will hand himself in to police at Woodlands Police and hear his charges.

ā€˜Iā€™m ready for the police, i have never been the one to run away from the law,ā€™ he said.

Mr Lungu is being sought by the Zambia Police after he convened an illegal meeting of fellow expelled MMD members including Mr Kabinga Pande, Faustina Sinyangwe, Joyce Musenge, Kenneth Chipungu, Chembe Nyangu, and others who left the party earlier.

The illegal meeting initially took place at Chrismar Hotel but was dispersed by the police.

Led by Mr Pande, the group claimed that their expulsions were null and void and they declared the constitutionally elected MMD National Executive Committee (NEC) dissolved.

Mr Lungu had earlier committed fraud by using MMD letter heads to write to the Police and sign the letter as National Secretary even though he and 19 others were expelled at a NEC meeting attended by over 40 people on 31st January 2015.

On Saturday, the police called Mr Lungu and summoned him to the police station but he did not show up and defied the police and the courts of law that have ordered him or his agents not to interfere with the operations of the office of the president of MMD Dr Nevers Mumba.
