Nevers' attacks on Judiciary unnecessary, says Mangani

PATRIOTIC Front Chipata Central candidate Lameck Mangani says MMD leader Nevers Mumba's attacks on the Judiciary are unnecessary.

And Mangani (left) says Mumba went too far by attacking him that he was prompted by poverty to petition the election of Mtolo Phiri.

Mumba has questioned the credibility of the Supreme Court following the nullification of Dora Siliya's seat for slandering the Patriotic Front candidate in 2011.

"The people of Zambia cannot be surprised with the outcome of the Chipata Central petition, they know what happened; the outcome of the Petauke Central petition. The Judiciary, in my view, has been very impartial and they have done their work properly," Mangani said.
And Mangani says the diminishing fortunes of the MMD will be made public on July 25, 2013.

Reacting to attacks on him by Mumba, Mangani said being a religious man, he did not expect Mumba to use bad language.

He said Mumba knew deep in his heart who was practicing politics of the belly between the two of them.

"He knows how I joined politics; he knows my position and my standing in politics. Up to now he (Mumba) is a president of a political party but he is still living in a rented home. So I don't expect him to say those things. I respect him he is my traditional cousin but I think he went too far," Mangani said.

He said Mumba knew that the fortunes for MMD were quickly diminishing in the province.

"The diminishing fortunes of MMD will be seen in the outcome of the elections of Chipata Central, Petauke and Mambwe. You will see the outcome very soon. So he (Mumba) doesn't need to go to the radio and insult me. He is getting angry because he knows that he is almost losing in these three constituencies," Mangani said.

And Mangani said the people of Chipata Central and Eastern Province in general had resolved to work with the government.

"The people of Chipata cannot be shy to indicate their position on this matter. So everywhere we go I think the mood has changed, even some of the people that I thought were staunch MMD, they have resolved that for the sake of the Eastern Province and for the sake of Chipata, we are going to give the Patriotic Front a vote on 25 July, so the mood is very good," Mangani said.
