The Post Newspaper has reported in today’s edition that Mongu has been engulfed in suspicion after chairman for the dissolved Western province MMD committee Namasiku Namakando arrived in Mongu unable to walk and talk, from his ‘reconcili
atory’ meeting with President Rupiah Banda at State House.
According to the Post, another member of the dissolved committee Kenneth Musangu has been confined at home after he suffered a stomach upset and persistent headache upon arrival in Mongu from Lusaka.
Musangu, who was the provincial youth chairman in the dissolved committee said (to the Post) Namakando stopped talking and became seriously ill en route to Mongu on a state house vehicle last Sunday and was rushed to Lewanika general hospital upon arrival.
Another source told the Post that Namakando is not walking and not talking and that he is on a drip.
But the Daily Mail reports that suspended MMD Western Province executive committee has reconciled with the party leadership and has pledged to deliver a 100 percent vote to President Banda in the 2011 general elections.
Mr Namakando confirmed in an interview (with the Daily Mail) in Lusaka that the executive committee decided to reconcile with the party in the interest of the people of Western Province and the nation.
