The two preachers have told Lungu that by adopting Mumba, he will win the support of Pentecost churches and will not have to worry about Catholics and other old churches such as SDAs and Baptists.
A senior PF source has revealed that sidelined PF secretary General Davies Chama and State House special assistant for politics Kaizer Zulu have bought in the idea of adopting Mumba.
The source said however Lungu is receiving serious objections from Dora Siliya, Michael Kaingu, Stephen Kampyongo and Mumbi Phiri who argue that Mumba has no numbers.
“Those names and many others are saying but what value will Nevers Mumba bring to the party,” the source said.
” There is confusion. The President is telling people that he has been convinced by some Pastors to work with Nevers Mumba so this Woman running mate has been shelved for now,” the source said.
