The MMD in Ndola has with immediate effect suspended its Vice Secretary for Publicity and Information Alex Mubanga for threatening to beat up Former Vice President Enock Kavindele at the fourth coming national convention.
The suspension has been announced by Ndola District Executive Chairman Cephas Katongo thursday.
Mr Kayongo says the MMD is a responsible party which should not condone irresponsible statements from its members like the one attributed to Mr Mubanga in Thursday’s issue of the Post Newspaper.
Mr Katongo said the MMD has no crack squad and people should ignore such utterances which he said are misplaced.
He said the ruling party will continue to protect everyone in Zambia and will not habour any militia.
Mr Katongo said Mr Kavindele is free to attend the national convention and contest any position of his choice.
He however said no one will vote for him because the district has already resolved to support President Rupiah Banda.
And Mr Mubanga has accepted his suspension saying he is a loyal member of the party and will respect any action taken against him by any organ of the party.
