MMD faction leader Nevers Mumba says the pact with the United Party for National Development (UPND) is non-existent as it expired after the 2016 general elections. Dr Mumba said the resolution to announce the expiry of the pact was reached at the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
MMD president Nevers Mumba says the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) met on Wednesday and resolved to end the alliance as it was restricted to the 2016 General Elections.

Dr. Mumba says the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that was signed between the two political parties has since expired.

He has told Journalists in Lusaka that MMD will now direct its energies on the rebuilding and healing of the party.

Dr. Mumba is concerned that the party is not participating in any by election there more reason it should start mobilizing itself ahead of the 2021 General Elections.

And when contacted for comment, UPND 2016 chairman of elections Gary Nkombo said he was not aware of the decision by MMD to announce their separation but only wished them well


  1. The UPND is still as intact as it has ever been. In fact it’s good riddance to have all impostors leave the party. That way you remain with real and strong faithful members. There’s nothing that indicates that the party is finishing. Inadvertently, majority of so called bye elections are being held in so called PF strongholds. So, reading between the lines one sees that there’s not much change that has taken save for a few non factor ward elections in UPND strongholds. Being in opposition in the current dispensation where there are no jobs, there’s rampant corruption by thugs in the party in government, dead agric and tourism sectors, has forced many including Nevers and Maureen to want to join the looters of the national treasury because that’s where there’s honey. Elsewhere, it’s all depravation and hopelessness. Therefore, let the looters go. Time will vindicate the UPND and other well meaning opposition parties. To those who remain in the UPND, be strong and soldier on. Start mobilizing country wide. Never say die.
