Party president Dr. Nevers Mumba says the MMD has accepted the development after receiving the resignation letter from Mr. Mutati.
Dr. Mumba says it was Mr. Mutati’s view that there was divided support for him mostly among MMD parliamentarians.
Accordingly Mr. Mutati indicated that some MMD MPs were allegedly petitioning his removal and that since he did not receive full support he had to step down.
Meanwhile Dr. Mumba has charged that it is premature for people to insinuate that the MMD has lost the position of leader of the opposition in parliament when the speaker of the national assembly has not delivered a ruling on the matter.[youtube 8k6_sB2_-Gc]Kindly note that all comments will be reviewed for appropriate content.
