Literally down and isolated, Kachingwe fights on
Expelled MMD National Secretary Richard Kachingwe has been abandoned by all NEC members. He has only been left with his lawyer Hobday Kabwe.
When formally announcing Kachingwe’s expulsion from the party today, party chairman Kabinga Pande was given solidarity by Party president, Nevers Mumba, vice president for political affairs Michael Kaingu, Party Spokesperson Dora Siliya and deputy national secretary Chembe Nyangu. More than 30 MMD MPs were also in attendance.
Others who could not attend in person send solidarity messages to the party leader Nevers Mumba.
Be that as it may, Kachingwe is still fighting. He has gone to court and will later today hold a press conference.
And the MMD says they will pay crook Clement Andeleki the K90 million Balance it owes the Registrar of Societies.
MMD chairman Kabinga Pande said the party has already paid K300 million and wondered why Andeleki is panicking overt the remaining K90m..
MMD national Chairman Kabinga Pande confirmed at a the expulsion of Kachingwe from the party at a press briefing at party president Nevers Mumba’s residence in Lusaka Tuesday morning.
Mr Pande says the NEC resolved to expel Major Kachingwe at its meeting held yesterday for alleged misconduct in accordance with article 19 of the party constitution.
He says Senga Hill Member of Parliament Kapembwa Simbao has since been appointed national Secretary on interim basis until elections for the new national secretary are held.
Mr Pande further stated that the NEC further invalidated Major Kachingwe’s letter nullifying Dr Nevers Mumba’s election as party President.
He accused Major Kachingwe of single handily invalidating the election of Dr. Mumba without authority from NEC or the national convention.
