State House has dismissed accusations by MMD leader Nevers Mumba that it was financing troubles in the former ruling party.
Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, George Chellah has since advised Dr Mumba to stop tarnishing the image of State House by dragging it, in his malicious agenda against the President Michael Sata.
Mr Chellah advised Dr Mumba to concentrate on stabilising his party from self inflicted problems instead of apportioning the blame on President Sata.
“We find his utterances baseless, wild, time-wasting and malicious, the Zambian people have been following the events, the turbulences, and the fights happenings in MMD and these are not new but well documented,” Mr Chellah said.
“Just like the Zambian people, State House has also been following these events through the Press and it would be very unfair to drag President Sata in the confusion”.
Mr Chellah said in reaction to Dr Mumba’s statement that President Sata wished him well in his endeavour to stabilise the MMD, so that it could contribute to the democratic governance of the country.
“The President wants to see a stable opposition political that will provide checks and balances to the ruling Party,” he said.
He said trying to heap the blame on President Sata would not help to stabilise the MMD, but instead further fuel confusion.
“Dr Mumba should devise better ways of stabilising the Party and I emphasis, President Sata would like to see MMD survive to provide checks and balances,” he said.
