Aford executive member and Mwenifumbo sympathiser, Dan Msowoya, said this in reaction to High Court Judge Charles Mkandawire’s decision to annul parallel conventions the party held in May this year.
“We fully agree with the key points of judgement and we have proposed that this should happen by December 14 or 15 2018,” he said.
Ironically, the Mwenifumbo camp has not had any formal communication with the Enock Chihana camp since the ruling was made on Friday.
Aford secretary general, Christopher Ritchie, while acknowledging that the two sides have not been communicating, said they are moving in the right direction.
“The only communication we have made so far is through the media. So, the letter we are writing now is the first formal communication to our friends. We believe they will be able to understand and appreciate the need to hold the convention on the proposed dates,” Ritchie said.
Chihana could not be reached for a comment Thursday but, in an interview recently, he assured that he would reach out to the Mwenifumbo camp for the party to approach the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections in one piece.
