MMD National Secretary Muhabi Lungu has dismissed as mere politicking claims by former party Spokesperson Dora Siliya that the former ruling party is dead.
Mr. Lungu says it is unreasonable for anyone to suggest that the MMD is on the death bed when the party has seats in Parliament and has been participating in by-elections.
Mr. Lungu has told Qfm News that it is such insinuations that he has now become tired of responding to as party Chief Executive Officer because they are baseless claims.
He adds that in view of the position Ms. Siliya has taken against the party, the MMD leadership will leave it up to the people of Petauke Central to decide who should be their candidate in the pending by-election in constituency.
Mr Lungu has also disclosed that the MMD has information that Ms. Siliya is allegedly among some people who want to form a breakaway political party.
He however says the MMD is not bothered by such a rumor.
