Through blood and sweat, Zambia shall be saved-Dr Mumba

“I’m determined through sweat and blood not to let you down the people of Zambia, am determined to pay the highest price through sweat and blood for the liberties of our people in this country. We are a free people, we got our independence in 1964 and we are not going back 50 years as a country.”

Interview with MMD President Nevers Mumba

This  interview was conducted with Nevers Mumba, President of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), on Friday 16 November 2012, exclusive to Zambia Reports.

You’ve been president of the MMD for nearly six months now. What is different about the party now, and what are your objectives for the future?
To answer that question one has to appreciate the state the party was in when I took over. We had just lost an election, our president had stepped down, and many of our members were being pursued by what would turn out to be false corruption accusations. As the party was demoralized, the first thing to do was to address the malaise. Full interview from source

Zambia envoy: Attack 'politically-motivated'

Zambia's high commissioner to Canada has rejected allegations, made by his country's president, of financial impropriety at the Zambian mission under his watch.

Nevers Mumba says that Michael Sata's comments are a "politically-motivated attack," and he is now considering legal action against the government he is still currently serving.

Mr. Mumba is Zambia's former vice president and a political appointee of the then-ruling Movement for Multi-Party Democracy. That party was in power in Zambia from 1991 until last September, when it lost a national election to Mr. Sata's Patriotic Front party.

Along with being his nation's chief representative in Canada—until his announced departure in December—he is also the president of the Ottawa Diplomatic Association, an umbrella group representing the diplomatic community in Ottawa.

A Nov. 16 report published by the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation, a state-owned TV station and website, voiced Mr. Sata's feelings with the following statement: "The president is concerned that information obtained so far suggests serious financial impropriety at the mission in Toronto, which is under the supervision of Dr Nevers Mumba."

"The president hopes that Dr Mumba's impending visit to Zambia will provide law enforcement agencies an opportunity to engage him on the financial matters at the mission he supervised as high commissioner until his recent recall."
