Serenje, Sunday (November 10, 2019)
SERENJE’S Muchinga Constituency Member of Parliament on the MMD ticket Howard Kunda says Felix Mutati cannot decide to quit the fight for MMD Presidency as an individual.
Mr. Kunda who is also Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chairperson says the third largest party can only respect a collective decision.
The senior MMD party leader told Serenje Radio that party members are on the ground consulting the masses on the way forward regarding the apex position.
And a member of the MMD who served in 8 Ministries Gaston Sichilima says no one is mandated to announce the closure of the case adding that an appeal is more likely.
Mr. Sichilima says wide consultations are still on going.
Earlier today, Felix Mutati said he respected the decision by the Lusaka High Court that declared Nevers Mumba as President of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD).
Mr. Mutati said he would not appeal against the judgement.
And following a decision by the High Court which ruled in favour of Dr. Mumba as duly elected President of the MMD as opposed to Felix Mutati, Dr. Mumba demanded MMD MPs to renew their loyalty failure to which the MMD NEC would decide.
