Mutati Says He is Still MMD President

MMD president Felix Mutati says he will not abandon the party because he draws his mandate from the membership who voted for him at the last convention in Kabwe.

Speaking during a meeting with party officials from Lusaka Province at the MMD secretariat in Kabulonga, Mutati said he would not be leader of the party if the membership did not want him and that he will continue to save as the party president as long as the membership approved of his leadership.

He said a lot things had happened and had been said about the MMD since he was elected president of the party with some stakeholders suggesting that the party leadership was compromised but that people should not mistake his silence for weakness and use it to insinuate that the party was dead because the MMD can not and will not die.

“For as long as democracy exists, the MMD will survive. Unlike other political parties we have continued to show the nation that we are not a one man party and that we are indeed the mother of democracy, my election as MMD president is a clear indication that we have upheld our core values as a party which is the introduction and the practice of democracy.

“I wouldn’t be in parliament neither would I be in cabinet without you, unlike what you’re being told by those that wish us bad, those that hope to see us fail that the alliance is between me and H.E Edgar Lungu, no, the alliance is between the MMD and the Patriotic Front, Felix Mutati as an individual is nothing without you his people, you sent me into this alliance to represent you and I will continue to do so for as long as you say I should,” he said.

He also said MMD cannot die because it is party with vast membership across the country adding that the party will not be excited with politicking because as the mother of democracy the party membership knows when and how to do their work.

Meanwhile Lusaka Province Chairperson Donald Chilufya assured Mutati that the province was intact and solidly behind his leadership.

He said no distractive elements will be entertained as the province has continued quietly mobilising the party structures to ensure that the party is well oiled to participate in elections.

The provincial officials further castigated their former leader Dr Nevers Mumba who continues to bring confusions in the party with what he described as pure malice and lies.

He said it was really sad that Dr Mumba continues to lie that his is the president when he knows that he is not and that the former party leader should realise that the mandate to be president is drawn from the membership and not the courts.

    It was jubilations when they illegally elected you as Mmd president. You went on and dinned with the tigers .They offered to protect you up to the sun and it was heaven on earth when you were made finance minister until they smelled a rat and shown you the exit through a ceremonial way of giving you a works and supply ministry which you accepted shamelessly. Now hell is loose,your new found job is dwindling on tree tops after the courts declared Mumba as the legitimate leader of Mmd. Manje ba mudala you are saying you are still mmd President ,kodi munyozela court olo court niyanu mungachite vili vonse vamene mu funa?..nkhanza bati. Patsani mpatha court isebvenze mwaufulu mangolongoma iyai.

    This matter is still in Court. What will happen when the supreme court declares nevers Mumba as Mr president? Better you leave now and enjoy the fruits of being a minister while it lasts becoz you will not be seen after 2021 either way.
