Nevers Mumba Scoops MMD Presidency

Nevers Mumba Scoops  MMD Presidency

Never Mumba has been elected Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) president with a landslide victory over his closest rival Felix Mutati during the party’s 3rd extra ordinary convention held in all the ten provinces.

Dr. Mumba polled 870 votes in the re-run against 422 votes of Mr. Mutati.

Returning officer Clement Zulu declared Dr. Mumba as duly elected president of the MMD at the party secretariat in Lusaka which was the totaling center.

A re-run was inevitable as none of the seven candidates managed to amass the 50 percent plus one threshold required by the party Constitution.

In the preliminary stage, Dr. Mumba outclassed his opponents by polling 548 votes representing 41.7 percent while his closest rival Mr. Mutati managed 366 votes representing 27.8 percent.

Former finance minister Situmbeko Musokotwane was third with 280 votes representing 21 percent with Kasempa Member of Parliament Kabinga Pande polling 89 votes representing 6.7 percent.

Other candidates are Kapembwa Simbao who collected 20 votes representing 1.5 percent and Chisamba Member of Parliament Moses Muteteka managing 5 votes with Enock Kavindele collecting only 4 votes.

And speaking shortly after the announcement of results, MMD national chairperson Michael Mabenga who was acting president said the results reflect the will of the general party membership.


Veteran politician Vernon Mwaanga urged the losing candidates to support Dr. Mumba in reorganizing ands rebuilding the party ahead of the 2016 general elections.

The convention also saw the amendment of MMD constitution to allow for two positions of party vice president where one will be in charge of administration and other will oversee political affairs.

    The way things are unfolding in Zambian politics clearly indicates that Elias Chipimo is solidly on his way up to State House, slowly but surely.

    Oh my lord…..!!! We are now finished,our party is now being run by a YOBALI .

    We can no longer trust man anymore ,What happened to the church ? What happened to his own party ?

    Lets hope PF will accept us .

    I find nevers highly hypocritical and morally impotent, politically he is a prostitute. Remember that he first told us that his calling as a preacher was higher than politics? When did that change? Nevers went so far as selling his party NCC in order to become veep. He won, only because of regional, tribal dynamics, Luapula, northern, copperbelt, lusaka and central must have voted for him. Miles Sampa’s theory might be true after all. Lets wait and see, by the way, do u remember that nevers had applied to stand on the PF ticket in 2006 but was rejected?

    Whether you like it or not Pastor Mumba is now MMD President and I think he will be able to provide checks and balances to pf. Pf is scared of him no wonder at one time it took two ministers, shamenda and lubinda, to hold a press conference in order to tell the nation that the Pastor had no house. Shame shame shame!!!!!

    I think MMD has made a mistake by making pastor nevers mumba as president. His name has this connotation of pentecostalism or fundamentalism. All he will do is to polarize the members. By the way, he will not feature well with the poor because he is by nature of his religious affiliation ant-poor. He is also likely to run the party as a pentecostal ministry. Yalaba party ya ba Pente. Many members will fail to cope with pentecostal mentality and the party will not attract the majority of zambians: the majority of zambians are poor. MMD is now Victory Ministry. Too bad for MMD; it is sad.

  14. Dr. Smash   May 26, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    Surely this man is a pastor. I hav respect 4 pastors so I can never vote 4 any one who is a pastor to take up politics instead of preachin behind puppets. Mumba shud not call himself a pastor 4 him to win my heart bt congrates 2 him. HH shud be replaced as well – nt by a pastor tho

  15. godwin   May 26, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    MMD is finished,the only man who was to resurrect MMD was Felix mutati but MMD members have chosen a crooked pastor to run the affairs of the already dead party.we shall see how Zanbia shall be saved.but be assured that MMD shall never and never be in govt again.

  16. maloza   May 26, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Movement for Mad Dogs will never be in power again they should just join their friends UNIP in chingwere cementary!!!

    Nevers lost in Northern province but scooped the presidency. Can Hakainde lose in Southern but still exist? For a finished party, it is a challenge to see Democratic national elections. NAREP, ZED, UPND, HP, FDD and a host of other inconsequential parties, let me see you hold your candles. to mmd. YOU CAN’T!!

  21. MTP   May 27, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Its like most of the bloggers ar not gud at analyzing issues. Mumba was not fired for incompetence but he was starting to gain popularity therefore he became a threat. 2. wen he wanted to challenge the late in 2005, the late knew that he wud carry the de therefore his expulsion from mmd. in 2003 he wanted to serve ze country that’s y he dissolved his party. Besides wen the righteous rule pipo rejoice therefore let all well-meaning Zambians support him. LEADERSHIP COMES FROM GOD

  22. friday chellah   May 27, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    the real MMD are either dead or out of the country because all the money they steal is out there. The rest of you are just left over’s who will amount to nothing.

  23. Afcon 2011 PHIRI   May 27, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Dr Mumba does not even have a house, president who has no fix aboard. A homeless president. Shame on mmd de finished party.

    MMD never cease to amaze me. They seem to have an unlimited capacity of electing wrong people as their leaders. They elected RB when Mangande had potential for greater appeal on the Zambia. This time around, the chose Nevers Mumba instead of Mutati who has won the confidence of a lot p[eople. Any way the truth is that MMD has an upper battle and does not a need flipper for a leader. Never has demonstrated his ability to dissolve a party for his own personal convenience

  31. Man Muta   May 28, 2012 at 6:15 am

    Zambian politics are a joke, Never Mumba has never been MP, could not even stand or win as MP from his home town Chinsali. People in MMD need serious brain development.

  32. tswana   May 28, 2012 at 8:08 am

  36. isaac   May 28, 2012 at 10:40 am

    point of correction nevers was fired not because of being popular, he was fired cause he was the first zambian vice president to hold a press conference in abscence of the sitting head of state. he did this at government house when dr mwanawasa was out of the country.according to the zambian constitution this is unheared of.thats why mwanawasa may his soul rest in peace fired him.infact in nevers, zambia can have the most pompous president ever.our comfort is that mmd they will never rule zambia again.

  37. Big T   May 28, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    am not an mmd fun but i strongly believe nevers will do it for mmd,non of the other sapirants had the zeal that nevers has and its only him who makes sata shiver.nevers is going to state house,you can count on that
