Financial woes in MMD need urgent attention – Mabenga

MICHAEL Mabenga says the financial woes that have crippled MMD need urgent attention.

Commenting on MMD deputy national secretary Chembe Nyangu’s statement that the party’s finances were dwindling because sources of funds had dried up, Mabenga, who is former MMD national chairman, said he was shocked that the party was facing serious financial constraints.

“This is the question of money and money demands that you should be able to sit down and discuss as a family. It is them to discuss and solve their problems,” he said. “The best thing to do is for those people to sit down and see how best they can sort out their problems. It is difficult for outsiders talking about their problems.”

Mabenga urged the MMD leadership to strategies on how best they could sort out its problems.

“Yes, it is the party I treasured; the party that I spent time on, but I knew other people will take over from there. It is difficult to see what is happening there.
