MMD suspends entire Copperbelt provincial executive committee

THE MMD has suspended the entire Copperbelt provincial executive committee.

But Copperbelt Province MMD chairperson Joseph Chilambwe says the real fight to kick Nevers Mumba out of MMD had started.

And suspended MMD chairperson for women affairs Catherine Namugala has applied for an injunction to restrain party’s acting national secretary Kapembwa Simbao and the MMD, from expelling her.

MMD deputy national secretary Chembe Nyangu yesterday suspended the entire Copperbelt provincial executive committee with immediate effect.

Nyangu said the party had appointed provincial secretary Tryson Simukoko to take care of the province for administrative purposes.

Nyangu said the committee had been suspended for indiscipline.

But Chilambwe accused Nyangu of being used by Mumba and Dora Siliya to champion their selfish interests.

He said people on the Copperbelt would not be cowed into supporting Mumba’s failed leadership.
