Nevers Mumba said : “Dr. Chanda should prove to the Zambian people and the donor Community. In my opinion, I think he should learn from the failures of Dr. Chilufya and do the right thing. He has an opportunity within a short time to change the ministry of health and restore donor confidence,” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “So the challenge that we have is to bring back donor confidence. The Ministry of Health is a donor aided ministry and with scandals of corruption, the sector suffers. Besides that, the firing of Dr. Chilufya has brought about some relief and donor confidence,” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “We, in the Movement for Multiparty Democracy, are disturbed with the blunt and open practice of tribalism and tribal tainted talk. There are many examples globally and even close to us of what tribalism can do to a society. Tribalism is the first step to a divided society and onward to a fully fledged genocide,” “What is most unfortunate is that we know the individuals in our political organisations who are sick with tribalism but we are unwilling to take decisive action all in the name of ‘politics being a game of numbers’. In our view, this is where we are missing it on all sides of this discussion” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “We propose, as we do in the MMD, that tribal hegemony be punishable by exclusion from our rank and file. It does not matter what one brings or what one is or has, if we establish that an allegation of tribalism is proved, such a person will immediately be excommunicated from the party with near zero chances of readmission,” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “Just to call it out, while we continue to associate with very well known tribalists in our parties, is not enough. We demand that all political parties begin to move towards actively disciplining the members who have been accused of tribalism. We should then make public the steps we have taken against such individuals. This matter is so serious and urgent. It can not wait another minute,” External link

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “We have submitted that the legitimacy of his presidency can only be confirmed after the petition has been heard. In this regard, we hold the view that the hurried inauguration has undermined both the spirit of democracy and the legitimacy in the presidency. The actions of Mr Lungu therefore continue to be illegal,” External link

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “Their view, whether wrong or right, remains sacred. It's God given. A president cannot take it away just because it offends him. A policeman cannot take it away just because he has a gun. The public media cannot take it away just because it is an overly successful propaganda machine for those in power,” “There is a myth being propagated that anyone who disagrees with the manner in which the August election was conducted must be arrested and charged with inciting citizens to rise against a ‘democratically’ elected government. This is a fallacy and a contradiction of both the Constitution and God's will for mankind. Every human being is free to disagree with any authority if there is reason for such a disagreement. Mr Lungu has no power over the will of any Zambian. Not even God the Creator has control over the sovereign will of man” External link

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “There is always a remnant. The myth therefore that no one should question the election of Mr Lungu because he has already been inaugurated will represent the lowest standards of understanding democracy and the rule of law. There is a petition, which has not been heard, and that petition represents the position of millions of Zambians and cannot be wished away,” “The only answer to peace and prosperity in our nation is for all of us to give justice a platform and ensure that the petition is heard” External link

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “It is not over until the justice system provides answers to the many difficult questions Zambians are asking: ‘Why hasn't the petition been heard?’ ‘Why didn't President Lungu step aside after the petition was filed?’ ‘Why did three judges of the ConCourt illegally write a ruling, which was not applied for by either the petitioners or the respondents?’” External link

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “Since we are sure that Mr Lungu did not win the election, we therefore believe he is not the legitimate President of Zambia. We shall insist by using all democratic means that the petition, which challenges the election of President Lungu, be heard. We believe the Constitution guarantees our right to be heard. We shall be heard and the true winner of the just-ended election shall be known,” “We demand the removal of all ConCourt judges for failing the Zambian people at the most emotive hour in our country's history. We demand the transformation of the electoral commission by removing judge [Esau] Chulu and Mrs [Priscilla] Isaac, who were in the forefront of rigging the last election and transform the ECZ into an independent electoral commission” External link

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Front ) : “Our only caution is that this exercise shall be done in the absence of any form of violence. We are enjoying enough nationwide support to achieve these goals without violence. This crusade therefore signals the beginning of non-violent mass movement to reclaim the lost votes. In the same spirit that the opposition has declared that no violence shall be entertained, we urge the police service not to provoke peaceful democratic processions connected to this call for the petition to be heard,” “We are aware that a lot of opposition supporters across the nation are facing very difficult times. The Patriotic Front cadres have gone on rampage to brutalise ordinary citizens perceived to be opposing the illegal regime. Some of you have been thrown out of markets, some bus and taxi drivers have been chased out of their ranks, others have been fired from their jobs on the basis of association to the cause of justice. We call on all Zambians not to lose hope” External link

Nevers Mumba stated : “Like David in the Scriptures, we have inquired of the Lord whether to pursue those who have stolen people's rights and votes. The answer is that we shall pursue and we shall recover all. This is what we have decided to do today. Some of you have become distraught because the inauguration has already taken place. Both Biblical and Secular history attests to the fact that truth cannot be buried forever. Examples abound and we want you to draw strength from this history,” “This is your right.

Nevers Mumba said : “There’s no way that the Constitutional Court can revisit that decision, they should just pay. Those ministers should not have even been appointed. They are being petitioned and based on that ruling, they are still going to lose their positions,” “That decision cannot be reversed, they are not the owners of the justice system, the justice system belongs to God and to the Zambian people so they can’t say that the Attorney General should revisit that decision, how can he revisit it? He is not the court and the ruling has been made and we are confident that the court decision will be enforced” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “It is the same thing with President Lungu, he has many problems, he has gone beyond the line of being considered a responsible person because he should have stepped aside and allowed the Speaker to act, the ruling has not yet been made and they rushed to get him inaugurated in an irregular manner but I think that he is going to pay in the same manner that the ministers are going to pay by being penalized and paying back the money. The time that he was president when he should not have been, we have to deal with that by law and see how the law is going to treat him,” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “I usually don’t comment on what Mutati does because what he does is of no consequence to the MMD at the moment, he is not considered as one of us, he is an expelled member. But having said that, I think that the entire MMD team is now justified and I think that the Supreme Court’s decision is also justified that Mr Lungu had to find a weak link in the MMD to sponsor so that he could destabilise MMD and Mr Mutati is now being paid for it; obviously now he is being rewarded for the destruction that he and Mr Rupiah Banda did to MMD,” “He was a mercenary sent by Mr Lungu to destroy MMD and now he is being paid for his mercenary work by the mercenary sponsor. His appointment does not affect MMD is any way. MMD has never been under Mutati. There’s no legal statement that gives him authority to be called MMD president. He was only being called president by the public media; ZNBC, Times of Zambia, Daily Mail plus the PF controlled Daily Nation. He has no legal standing and there’s a Supreme Court ruling against him but because the gentlemen are in power, they thought they could change the law by insisting that he is president. But he has never been president [of the MMD]” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “I am doing a letter to Edgar Lungu telling him about our concerns and disappointment. He will not shift from the issue on the table and the issue on the table is the petition. If it’s not heard, he cannot be President. He can go to the inauguration but it has no legitimacy. The best thing for him would have been to hear the petition and after that, if he became Present, I would be the first one to salute him. He can go to the inauguration but he is paralysing his future. My arrest is trying to shift from what we are fighting for; let him account for the 300,000 votes that are missing; where are they? Chagwa knows where the votes are and if he doesn’t show us, this battle will not end and will go on forever,” “He will have the most uncomfortable stay in State House. If I were him, I would say ‘let’s hear this case so that the truth can come out’; that’s my position. This arrest and detention is what I needed to get my resolve. I am now looking forward to this battle. Paul did not give up, Peter didn’t give up, Kaunda didn’t give up and Jesus didn’t give up, it just made them stronger” External link

Nevers Mumba said : “The police and courts have refused to listen to us because the suspected thief of your votes is very well known...They claim we reported the case after midnight of Friday 2nd September and the station was closed and therefore the case could not be heard. The suspect, the Patriotic Front and the ECZ are alleged to have stolen votes in Kanyama, they stole 14,000 votes; in Lundazi they stole 8,000 votes. They have stolen from every constituency and our computation says they have stolen over 300,000 votes from Hakainde Hichilema and Geoffrey Mwamba. We therefore come here to inform the owners of the stolen goods, the stolen votes. We want you Zambians to tell us if you will agree for the thieves to take the goods because the police station was closed when we reported them,” “These goods that have been stolen are your goods, we were only security guards. Do you therefore want your goods to remain stolen? We have to ask you now because this is a fight for justice and not only for HH and GBM but the fight belongs to you the Zambian people who voted for justice and better life. It’s now for you to take up this fight from this point, we stand solidly as your leaders to provide leadership. We cannot dispose the thief unless you fight for your votes and now bring this case to you by asking you to fight for democracy with us and take that which has been stolen from you” External link

It is now clear to all that there appears to have been another ulterior motive for insisting on rushing the Referendum,” “Regrettably, most of the people interviewed on various electronic media platforms in the last few days have said they did not know what the Referendum was about and therefore either voted ‘NO’ or simply abstained from the referendum vote altogether” External link

This is a misguided position, which does not align itself with the spirit of the new Constitution," "Those who were part of the last constitution commission understand that one of the reasons for amending the constitution was to create a level justice platform for both the petitioner and the petitioned.

He was threatened in 2015 that he would not win the election. He brought confusion in the MMD by enlisting Mr Rupiah Banda to parade himself as the president of MMD and began to talk about an imaginary alliance between MMD and the PF, which every Zambian knew was non-existent because me as president had signed absolutely no document with them.

This money is not even there in our Constitution; it is not written that they will be giving former presidents cash for their houses. The Constitution stipulates that a house shall be built for the former head of state and handed over to him or the family,” “Behind closed doors, they connived to make Mr Rupiah Banda have money to use during this election. They did that in total disregard for the [other] late presidents; [Levy] Mwanawasa’s widow is still waiting for the house, [Frederick] Chiluba’s widow is still waiting for the house.

That has been proved by what happened in Kanyama where they stole 14,000 votes from HH and they threw them in a bin.

Nevers Mumba said : “We, in the Movement for Multiparty Democracy, are disturbed with the blunt and open practice of tribalism and tribal tainted talk. There are many examples globally and even close to us of what tribalism can do to a society. Tribalism is the first step to a divided society and onward to a fully fledged genocide,” “What is most unfortunate is that we know the individuals in our political organisations who are sick with tribalism but we are unwilling to take decisive action all in the name of ‘politics being a game of numbers’. In our view, this is where we are missing it on all sides of this discussion” External link

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “We have submitted that the legitimacy of his presidency can only be confirmed after the petition has been heard.

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “Their view, whether wrong or right, remains sacred. It's God given. A president cannot take it away just because it offends him. A policeman cannot take it away just because he has a gun. The public media cannot take it away just because it is an overly successful propaganda machine for those in power,” “There is a myth being propagated that anyone who disagrees with the manner in which the August election was conducted must be arrested and charged with inciting citizens to rise against a ‘democratically’ elected government. This is a fallacy and a contradiction of both the Constitution and God's will for mankind. Every human being is free to disagree with any authority if there is reason for such a disagreement. Mr Lungu has no power over the will of any Zambian. Not even God the Creator has control over the sovereign will of man” External link

We shall insist by using all democratic means that the petition, which challenges the election of President Lungu, be heard. We believe the Constitution guarantees our right to be heard. We shall be heard and the true winner of the just-ended election shall be known,” “We demand the removal of all ConCourt judges for failing the Zambian people at the most emotive hour in our country's history.

Nevers Mumba stated ( about Front ) : “Our only caution is that this exercise shall be done in the absence of any form of violence. We are enjoying enough nationwide support to achieve these goals without violence. This crusade therefore signals the beginning of non-violent mass movement to reclaim the lost votes. In the same spirit that the opposition has declared that no violence shall be entertained, we urge the police service not to provoke peaceful democratic processions connected to this call for the petition to be heard,” “We are aware that a lot of opposition supporters across the nation are facing very difficult times. The Patriotic Front cadres have gone on rampage to brutalise ordinary citizens perceived to be opposing the illegal regime. Some of you have been thrown out of markets, some bus and taxi drivers have been chased out of their ranks, others have been fired from their jobs on the basis of association to the cause of justice.

Nevers Mumba said : “I usually don’t comment on what Mutati does because what he does is of no consequence to the MMD at the moment, he is not considered as one of us, he is an expelled member. But having said that, I think that the entire MMD team is now justified and I think that the Supreme Court’s decision is also justified that Mr Lungu had to find a weak link in the MMD to sponsor so that he could destabilise MMD and Mr Mutati is now being paid for it; obviously now he is being rewarded for the destruction that he and Mr Rupiah Banda did to MMD,” “He was a mercenary sent by Mr Lungu to destroy MMD and now he is being paid for his mercenary work by the mercenary sponsor. His appointment does not affect MMD is any way. MMD has never been under Mutati. There’s no legal statement that gives him authority to be called MMD president. He was only being called president by the public media; ZNBC, Times of Zambia, Daily Mail plus the PF controlled Daily Nation. He has no legal standing and there’s a Supreme Court ruling against him but because the gentlemen are in power, they thought they could change the law by insisting that he is president. But he has never been president [of the MMD]” External link

If it’s not heard, he cannot be President. He can go to the inauguration but it has no legitimacy. The best thing for him would have been to hear the petition and after that, if he became Present, I would be the first one to salute him. He can go to the inauguration but he is paralysing his future. My arrest is trying to shift from what we are fighting for; let him account for the 300,000 votes that are missing; where are they? Chagwa knows where the votes are and if he doesn’t show us, this battle will not end and will go on forever,” “He will have the most uncomfortable stay in State House. If I were him, I would say ‘let’s hear this case so that the truth can come out’; that’s my position. This arrest and detention is what I needed to get my resolve. I am now looking forward to this battle. Paul did not give up, Peter didn’t give up, Kaunda didn’t give up and Jesus didn’t give up, it just made them stronger” External link

The suspect, the Patriotic Front and the ECZ are alleged to have stolen votes in Kanyama, they stole 14,000 votes; in Lundazi they stole 8,000 votes. They have stolen from every constituency and our computation says they have stolen over 300,000 votes from Hakainde Hichilema and Geoffrey Mwamba. We therefore come here to inform the owners of the stolen goods, the stolen votes. We want you Zambians to tell us if you will agree for the thieves to take the goods because the police station was closed when we reported them,” “These goods that have been stolen are your goods, we were only security guards. Do you therefore want your goods to remain stolen? We have to ask you now because this is a fight for justice and not only for HH and GBM but the fight belongs to you the Zambian people who voted for justice and better life. It’s now for you to take up this fight from this point, we stand solidly as your leaders to provide leadership.

It is highly hypocritical for you and the PF to be pretending to love God, pretend that you love to pray, you are humble when you are in fact heartless and corrupt individuals looting national resources,” “Play with anything, but have respect for the Creator. You can’t mock God my friend. No matter how powerful you may think you are, no matter how much power goes to your head, God can never be mocked.

He has never been any success story in politics. If he was popular among his people in MMD, he should have just gone for a convention. He came from a party which went into oblivion and tried to hijack the MMD for which he did not have capacity. This is just leadership failure and that is why he has abandoned it [MMD] to go and join UPND as a cadre,” External link

Cris Akufuna said ( about Nevers Mumba ) : “Dr Mumba is a candidate and we have his name among the nominees for presidency, so the new twist of him supporting another candidate is not much of our business since what we know is that he is a candidate,” External link

Hakainde Hichilema said ( about Nevers Mumba ) : “In the 1960s, we all came together to liberate this country, there was no segregation and we delivered, demonstrating the power of unity. In the 1990s, once again, we united to deliver multipartism. How is it that today when we are challenged with an economic crisis, we will not achieve unity of purpose in order to deliver economic and social liberation? My argument is that we will be able to achieve unity of purpose to guide our people to economic liberation. Now is for us to walk a path that is singular, to unite. We have the UDF working with us, we have several individuals working with us and now we have you, Dr Mumba and your team, how can we fail to deliver? It is not possible,” External link

Mwansa Mbulakulima said ( about Nevers Mumba ) : “He (Mumba) has acted emotionally to what happened in Kabwe at the convention. We have talked about this issue before with him (Mumba) and I know that the decision did not come from his heart but he has emotionally reacted,” External link

Mwansa Mbulakulima said ( about Nevers Mumba ) : “However, I am here to tell you that nothing of that sort is either with us or with the courts of law and I want to tell you that the meeting in Kabwe is going ahead because the court has not prevented us from doing so. If there were contempt proceedings against us or any injunction in place, do you think we would be here having a meeting? What Dr. Mumba is doing in legal terms is called forum shopping” External link

Mwansa Mbulakulima said ( about Nevers Mumba ) : “As we speak to you now, there is no injunction that has been served on us to stop the convention and as you can see, we are going ahead with registration of delegates and all other logistics are already in place. By Friday [tomorrow], all the delegates will be in Kabwe and the convention will go ahead; even his threats at management of the Mulungushi University that he will burn the institution if it accommodates us are baseless,” “We shall justify to the police that there is no injunction in place because we are certain that their action to stop the gathering is based on such a court action, but it’s not there! Mumba should just avoid embarrassment by not even attempting to pay for nomination fees for the August 11 polls because he is the biggest liability that Zambia has ever had politically” External link
