MMD has no president, claims Namugala

Hired MMD lawmaker Catherine Namugala was Sunday night featured on the State owned and PF controlled ZNBC on which she cast aspersion on party president Nevers Mumba whom she said was not the leader of the biggest opposition but represented the defunct Reform Party.

Namugala, who is one of the few MMD members expected to defect to the ruling Patriotic Front to survive prosecution from corruption allegations, accused Dr Mumba of launching 2016 campaigns when the party had not endorsed him as its candidate.

The Mafinga MP was a close ally of former President Rupiah Banda but has made a sudden u-turn to flirt with PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba and President Michael Sata.

Namugala and Lunte MP Felix Mutati are earmarked for poaching by the PF but have been assigned to destabilise the MMD as their immediate assignment.

She accused Dr Mumba of being an outsider who was not eligible to contest the position of MMD president.

Dr Mumba beat Mutati with a landslide to assume the position of MMD president during the MMD mini convention in May 2012.

Meanwhile, MMD acting National Secretary Kapembwa Simbao has said those flirting with the Patriotic Font were weak souls that could not stand in the opposition. Simbao was speaking during Muvi TV’s the assignment programme.

    MMD preaches so much about democracy, but reflect on how the leaders are chosen. 1990-1991 chiluba considered highjacked leadership, mwanawasa handpicked in 2001, RB pushed in leadership in 2008 from UNIP/MMD and preacher man from another party elected by few MMD nec members and keeper of the party constitution. NATURE OF THE PARTY.

    She is a disgrace!

  7. Mpongwe   January 7, 2013 at 23:34

    She is a disgrace, it pains to call her names but she has left alot of people with no alternative. The only people who are proud of her could be ba PF, otherwise mama we are disappointed with you. To claim you only came to know Nevers through disgraced Andeleki puzzles me. Nevers has been around before Mwanawasa through to RB’s time, today you pretend it had to take Andeleki………..xxxxxxxx

  8. Mpongwe   January 7, 2013 at 23:27

    Disappointed with Namugala. She has been around even in the time of Levy Mwanawasa, she never had the courage to question Mwanawasa, she was there with RB and Nevers was around she had no problem. Nevers has been in public domain from time immemorial and she pretended all was well. RB a good friend to NAMUGALA was around when Nevers took over and no one had questions. Today, Namugala wants to tell me she only came to know Nevers when Andeleki introduced Nevers to her. She is a disgrace, after all the admiration she won she has turned out an imposter, hired gun. I would love to have the opportunity to ask her what really happened to her old self. Mama you are Judas Escariot, it pains to call you names but the alternatives are very marginal

    thank u the interviewer for asking sponsored pf cadre namugala that in MMD no one is ready for discipline Dr mumba could u discipline these thugs who have lost touch to democrancy

  15. coolman   January 7, 2013 at 17:20

    a leader who is not disciplined cannot lead effectively.His own life will stand against him.He will not be agood testimony of organization though he/she may profess politics his/her life will be a contradiction Namugala and the like this shows there was no discipline in the previous government i can see these people who are putting allegations to Dr Nevers Mumba are the ones who were doing things minus the powers of executive there were untouchable i am reminding sata to be careful with these introvents he is wasting the resources of this country by paying these chainamas who have been chased away from well meaning parties i persannaly recommend the interviewer for asking pf sponsored namugala that in MMD members they dont like to be disciplined which is true VIVA Dr Mumba discipline these thugs they are going no where eg Lubinda saga

    Kabimba amaitamba ya Namugala ?????Life in the political arena is SO SWEEET…..

  18. Umkonto We Sizwe   January 7, 2013 at 16:16

    My advice to Namugala is very simple. Nevers was democratically elected by the members throughout the country and that is the beauty of MMD compared to any other party in this country. She may not like Nevers as a leader which is normal but to suggest that he is not a leader of MMD is a total misrepresentation of facts.

    If she strongly feels there is something lacking in Nevers let her approach him and iron out the differences with him and in so doing she will be helping in building a better and stronger MMD but for obvious reasons best known to the PF she will do everything to see to it that MMD is destroyed. For now she must realize that whoever may be elected president of MMD assuming Nevers is hounded out, supporters of Nevers will also give Namugalas MMD president a tough time and eventually the MMD will go nowhere.

    Maybe the saying that politics is a dirty game may as well be so true considering the many happenings in the so called big political party’s in this country.

  19. Jamela   January 7, 2013 at 16:15

    She should just leave Mumba alone and continue looking for feaces when there is still time. She is just one of those political prostitutes who can be used at a fee.

  20. Mzee hekima   January 7, 2013 at 16:14

    Namugala is a waste of space in this country.

  21. Michael Chilufya Mumembe   January 7, 2013 at 16:03

    From that interview, I concluded that Namugala knows nothing about democracy. Nevers was elected by more than 75% of the votes and the decision of the majority of the MMD members should be respected by all. Saying that the members did not know that he was still President of Reformed Party does not hold. We all know that Nevers join MMD during the Mwanawasa period. Even Namugala knows that he abandoned his party and joined MMD. Abandoning and getting an MMD card is enough evidence to say Nevers is an MMD member. And since joining MMD Nevers has actively been supporting the course of MMD. I think Namugala is just BITTER either because someone she favoured(Mutati)lost the elections or an external hand is enticing her and paid her money to destabilise MMD. The worst she did was to attack NEC members that they are toothless just because they don’t support her stance. And how can you wish death in three months for the party that you belong to? Is this the period given to you to see to it that MMD is dead?

Dreamer! Come 2016 so close, if ukwa is wise he has to start using that money on substantial things. Development ba fi carlar

  32. Ulemu ni Wabwino   January 7, 2013 at 11:58

    Only a fool can be talking about the Reform Party existing because it is common knowledge that the party does not exist. This is the same folly exhibited by Andeleki. If RP exists, what is its membership as at December, 2012? Who submitted the 2012 returns? The answer is no one. I have always thought that Namugala was a sharp politician but listening to her last night it is clear she does not mean well. Doesn’t she know that a club’s (political parties operate like clubs) leadership changes the moment the membership or board appoint/elect their leaders? It does not take effect when one misguided Andeleki gives consent. Namugala even went as far as saying Rupiah is the president of MMD. It is as foolish as claiming KK is the president because you have read a 1990 document. Wise up Namugala and declare your interest.

    Ba Namugala displayed what Ba Simbao termed as politics without intelligence.
    but a friend who nevers’ security told me that Ba Namugala would never like Nevers because he turned down her sexy advances when he was VEEP.
    Ba MMD keep Simbao is very intelligent.

  34. staycool   January 7, 2013 at 11:53

    I was disappointed with namugala. because of women like her it is difficult for most of zambian women to trust their vote on a women. the women we have in politics today in zambia have no qualities of good leaders. Namugala you are a disgrace.

  37. MMD DIED HARD   January 7, 2013 at 11:45

    It is very unfortunate that a senior member of NEC can undress her political party like this in public maybe her intentions are to leave. MMD has electrol procedures and a procedure to correct mistakes. I am very sure Namugala is aware of all this and she has decided to misdirect herself and the public. There are people who dont like Nevers as MMD president and they have a right. But unfortunately Democracy states that he voted for a term of 4/5 years. The haters need to wait for there time. The MMD elections were not partitioned. Its very sad that the people we looked up to can go so slow. Sure we are very far from democracy

  38. Blakoma   January 7, 2013 at 11:43

    Catherine Namugula should have been the MMD spokesperson during the Rupiah regime not Dora bokose.She’s smart and doesnt talk from without..

    Reform party has been inactive for 5 years now. The first thing Andekeli should have done is deregister the party. Technically and legally Reform party stopped existing three years ago. Dr Mumba is rightly the elected President of MMD and did qualify to stand as president

    Namugala is quite a funny woman. Someone must investigate these allegations: Did she not have a child with her brother-in-law, a white man? Did she not orchestrate the deportation of the same man and grabbed, imposed herself as administrator for the estate of her late sister who did not have children with the white man and then grabbed Interland Filling Station in Lusaka, another filling station in Isoka and Chicken Inn (restaurants)? This should say much about her character and flirting. Who knows Namugala very well?
