The MMD in Mwandi constituency have called for the expulsion of the suspended Copperbelt provincial executive from the party.
MMD branch chairman George Simulilo has said his area will not allow people to harass party president Dr Nevers Mumba because he was democratically elected.
“Leaders should not lie. Tell people the truth and even when there are difficulties, do not hide and you won’t have problems. That is the type of leadership we have with Dr Mumba.
“We have no problem with him and we are 100 percent behind him. I heard the provincial chairman who was suspended that they are going to form parallel structures. We don’t have such in our constitution.
“Where does he draw the power to do that? Such people should be expelled. Let them not fear if its 20 MPS causing problem, let them fire those MPs. We don’t mind even if we remain four members in the party but committed,” he said.
But suspended Copperbelt MMD chairman John Chilambwe has threatened to mobilise party members to get rid of Dr Mumba when he is expelled.
