Mumba group twist­ing court rul­ing - Nakachinda

Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS - By NA­TION RE­PORTER

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.
