Easterners cannot be trusted, says Kachingwe

MAJOR Richard Kachingwe says Nevers Mumba is wasting his time to ride on Rupiah Banda’s name in Eastern Province.

And Maj Kachingwe described Mumba’s sympathy for Banda, who is facing corruption cases, as fruitless.

Maj Kachingwe, who is former MMD national secretary, said he owed no apology to Mumba because he was an illegal party president.

“Nevers Mumba thinks that people in Eastern Province like RB but he has been rejected. If you look at the 2011 elections, he just managed to get a few votes from there,” he said. “You see, people of Eastern Province cannot be trusted. They change easily; they are quicksand.”

Maj Kachingwe maintained that MMD was going nowhere with Mumba at the helm of the party.

“I have never and will never apologise to anybody for what I did. I know someday a reasonable NEC will sit and endorse my decision against Mumba. I know what will happen with Mumba at the helm of the party,” he said.

“Mumba doesn’t mean well for the party.
