Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba, the Party President of the Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD), visited Ndola within his nationwide tour. The local ward, branch and district officials welcomed him at Lowenthal Theatre.
The Party Vice President, Reuben Sambo, the National Secretary Winnie Zaloumis, the National Treasurer Hon Elizabeth Chitika, as well as provincial Chairperson for the Copperbelt Denson Chisunka also attended the event.
The party has been torn apart into two factions headed by Dr Mumba and Felix Mutati. They have been battling in court for legitimate control of the party. So far, Dr Mumba and his legal team have won all the court rulings. The MMD leader thanked the members for their resilience and keeping faith in the party even at its darkest times.
In his turn, Chisunka thanked the President and his team and emphasised that all the genuine MMD members were supporting his leadership as he had proved to be brave and very measured.
