Mumba group twisting court ruling - Nakachinda
IT IS Nevers Mumba and his team who are twisting facts about court proceedings but we are not dis-mayed because we know that such shortlegged imaginary victories come with lies which they have continued peddling, Raphael Nakacinda has said. Mr. Nakacinda, who is the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) national secretary, has al-leged that Dr. Mumba’s team on Thursday circulated a statement to the media claiming that Lusaka High Court had reinstated Winnie Zaloumis as party national secretary when the ruling was on a pre-liminary issue questioning her ‘Loci Standi’ in the main case. He said his party leadership had initially restrained itself from reacting to what he termed as “the des-perate propaganda” due to the national mourning period granted to late former freedom fighter Mama Chibesakunda Kankasa. “We are equally in receipt of the last ruling in the High Court on the preliminary issues which is why we are not even surprised to see lengths to which Dr Mumba and his group are willing go to gain cheap political mileage. They have continued to unceremoniously lie hoping that one day their lies will graduate into the truth. “We restrained ourselves from reacting to these falsehoods seeing that as a nation we were in a period of national mourning celebrating the life of a heroin in late freedom fighter Mama Chibesakunda Kankasa MHSRIP,” Mr. Nakacinda said. He said the nation should not be duped into believing that there has been a court ruling to do with the main matter because the main matter had not been heard by the court and that assertions that its law-yers had dumped them were also lies. He said its counsels had been withdrawn from the High Court matter to avoid having the same lawyers representing the party both in the High Court and the Constitutional Court.
