Dora-SiliyaSome MMD members opposed to the leadership of Nevers Mumba have continued punching holes in the party’s August 19 Mangango by-election loss by pointing fingers to the top leadership.

Former party spokesperson Dora Siliya said the loss was a result of the current party leadership to transform the party.

Siliya also denied that there were plans by the ‘rebel’ MMD former senior members to form a splinter political party from the MMD.

“If in a local government election like in Siavonga you can get five votes, even behind UNIP and yet in MMD we are supposed to have 24 ward executive officials and many branch officials 24 each at each branch and you get five votes truly who is behind you, it means nobody is following you,” she said.

“So whether it a breakaway party or not is not the issue, the issue is that there is total failure in the current leadership to transform the party into a viable opposition and it will continue losing elections until the real leadership issues are addressed.”

The MMD only managed a paltry 145 votes in the Mangango by-election and some quarters within the party are already screaming change in the top leadership.

Party President Nevers Mumba has warned that he will not tolerate any member of the party using the Mangango loss to criticize the top leadership of the party.
