Smart Eagles, an online media, published an article on their Facebook page on the 5th of October, claiming that Dr. Nevers Mumba who is the President of MMD had taken leave from active politics. The article quotes Mr. Cephas Mukuka and alleges that during the Nation Executive Committee (NEC) they resolved that they would grant Dr. Mumba a Sabbatical leave in the interest of the party. The article further states they agreed to change the name of the Party in the interest of rebranding the Party.
