MMD bans pro-PF Copperbelt executive
MMD deputy national Secretary Chemmbe Nyangu has appointed former provincial secretary Tryson Simukoko as care taker
Three weeks ago, the MMD on the Copperbelt driven by PF money passed a vote of no confidence in their president Nevers Mumba and demanded that the National Executive Committee (NEC) should dissolve immediately.
MMD chairpersons representing seven districts on the Copperbelt announced the resolution during a media briefing in Kitwe yesterday.
A new leadership team, the district leaders said, should be constituted to start on a fresh note.
District leaders from Chingola, Kalulushi, Chililabombwe, Chambishi, Mufulira and Kitwe said failure to dissolve the MMD NEC would prompt more than 900 members to resign from the former ruling party in 90 days.
Chingola District chairperson Jackson Kawaya, who read out the resolutions, said Copperbelt members were demanding the immediate holding of a national convention to usher in new leadership.
