The MMD in Mazabuka has welcomed the decision by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to drop Mr. Jeff Kaande as the party’s Deputy National Secretary describing the development as good riddance.
MMD District vice chairperson, Takawira Mahere told ZANIS in Mazabuka today that, removing Mr Kaande from his position is good riddance and long overdue.
Mr. Mahere said Mr. Kaande deserves such punitive action because he allegedly contributed to the confusion that had rocked the MMD in Mazabuka and Monze districts following his un authorized dissolution of the party organs.
He said the dissolution of the party organs led to the resignation of district and constituency officials in Monze district.
Mr. Mahere said it had to take him to restrain senior party officials in Mazabuka district from resigning because he knew that Mr Kaande’s directives did not have the blessings of the party national secretariat.
He also congratulated Education Minister Dora Siliya on her appointment as party spokesperson.
Mr. Mahere also urged NEC not to entertain any members creating confusion in the party.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mahere has challenged the Southern Province MMD executive committee to resign their positions on moral grounds for failing to reject directives by Mr Kaande to dissolve the two districts.
Mr. Mahere threatened to de-campaign the provincial executive committee if it does not resign within three weeks.
