MMD denies being broke

MMD Treasurer Mwansa Mbulakulima has refuted assertions that the former ruling party is on the verge of bankruptcy, QFM reports.

Mr. Mbulakulima who is also MMD Chembe Member of Parliament says assertions that the former ruling party is broke are merely political propaganda. He says the party would not have embarked on the nationwide tour dubbed hope tour if its coffers are running dry.

Mr. Mbulakulima has further told Qfm in an interview that his party’s participation in the thirteen out of fifteen local government by-elections scheduled for Tuesday next week is another proof that the MMD is still financially sound. He adds that the strength of a political party is not measured on the basis of how much money it has but the membership.

Yesterday, The Post Newspaper quoting Deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu reported that the former ruling party’s account was running dry.
