Leader of Zambia’s Movement for Multi Party Democracy – MMD- Nevers Mumba has been arrested in Congo DRC after his meeting with former President Kabila failed.

The MMD leader travelled to meet former President Kabila

Dr Mumba was supposed to meet with General Joseph Kabila, former President of DRC ostensibly to seek financial support ahead of 2021 general elections in Zambia.

However, Gen Kabila did not show up and Dr Mumba was instead arrested by heavily armed security forces.

When contacted for a comment by Zibani Zambia, Foriegn Affairs Minister Joseph Malanji said he is waiting for the report from his counterpart from DRC and Home Affairs before they could begin to use diplomatic channels to secure the realise of Dr. Mumba.

Mr Malanji has cautioned opposition leaders to avoid the temptations of seeking dirty money from militia groups or foriegn entities which could threaten both the security of Zambia and those countries.

A source has told Zibani Zambia that President Lungu is concerned with the situation of Dr. Mumba especially that it comes at time when the political situation is volatile in Congo DRC.
