- “Why would anyone want to kill him? What political relevance does Dr Mumba have.

NEVERS Mumba is nervous for nothing, no one wants to kill him, Patriotic Front (PF) deputy media director Antonio Mwanza has said.
Mr Mwanza told the Daily Nation yesterday, “Why would anyone want to kill him? What political relevance does Dr Mumba have.
“I have had a very long chat with Dr. Nevers Mumba. I have known him for years. When Dr. Mumba was elected president of MMD I was invited to present a paper to the MMD NEC on the future of the MMD.
I warned Dr. Mumba and his NEC about everything that is happening to him now and that which has happened to the MMD since losing power to PF in 2011. The truth is, no one wants to kill Dr. Nevers Mumba; why would anyone kill him, of what threat or relevance is Dr. Mumba to Zambia’s political landscape,” he said.
Mr Mwanza said Dr Mumba should not be nervous, instead he should take an honest self-introspection and reflect on his life and the choices he had made.
Let him read the story of Jonah, he said, and he will understand why his life has been a disaster ever since he left the pulpit.
He said it was never too late to do the right thing, saying that God loves Dr. Mumba, he should just do what was right.
Dr Mumba was quoted in some section of the media saying that some people want him dead, they had been trailing him for two months now.
He said he was really scared when on the way to the dungeon his captors turned on a road to a place where the first Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba was killed.
