Sata, PF cannot shut my mouth – Nevers

MMD president Nevers Mumba says the frequent arrests will not shut him up.

And MMD Eastern Province chairperson Alexander Miti says his fellow former district commissioners defected to PF from MMD selfish reasons.

Addressing Eastern Province and Chipata district executive committees at Pine View Guest House on Saturday, Mumba said President Michael Sata was worried with his ascendancy to the MMD presidency.

He said he had faced frequent arrests from the time he assumed the position of party president.

“You may be saying that ‘from the time we voted in 2012, he has only come today!’ ‘Let me say, you are the ones who sold me! When you voted for me, President Sata” said ‘where is Mumba? Why have they made him president? Police, arrest him! Whatever I say, they arrest me, throw me in prison, court (cases) every day. I wanted to come here but I couldn’t because I was arrested. In December, I was arrested three times in one month,” Mumba explained.
