One group led by Maureen and openly supported by Fred Mmembe alleged that the late President Mwanawasa had wanted Magande to succeed the fallen leader.
The other group was basically composed of government machinery that put its money on the candidacy of the then Vice President Banda.
Maureen is not talking about Magande, she is using him to send a message to President Sata about the urgent need to anoint his
successor before God forbid something bad happens to him!
It is not a secret that a succession battle is currently underway in the PF with two groups emerging. The GBM group and the Wynter Kabimba group.
Maureen worked closely with Fred Mmembe during the Magande Presidential project to succeed President Mwanawasa.
We would be forgiven for concluding that she is working with the cunning Mmembe to force President Sata to anoint Wynter Kabimba successor before it is too late!
