FORMER President Rupiah Banda has dared MMD president Nevers Mumba to expel him from the party, saying he [Mr Banda] has the right to support President Lungu.
Mr Banda, who was speaking in an interview following a statement by MMD president Nevers Mumba that the former president would be expelled from the party because he supported the PF, wondered why Dr Mumba, who is a clergyman, is failing to show love for people but is instead sulking and being emotional towards him [Mr Banda].
“Dr Mumba should not forget that he is a pastor who should preach peace and promote unity in the nation instead of being emotional towards me like he has been,” said Mr Banda.
The former head of State also said he has never quarrelled with Dr Mumba for him to be so emotional towards him.
“I don’t know why he is too upset like that. As a clergyman, he should be the one spearheading peace and unity in the country,” he said.
Mr Banda insisted that Dr Mumba should be able to give love to all people and stop attacking him.
He also said Dr Mumba is a pastor who should lead by example and demonstrate to the nation that he is a man of God.
Dr Mumba yesterday said Mr Banda would be expelled from MMD because of his continued campaigns for the PF.
He cited the recent Solwezi West PF campaign rallies, where he [Mr Banda] shared the PF campaign platform as reason for expelling the former republican president from the MMD.
