Bowman Lusambo says his MMD Die Hard youth movement will never die because it is a legitimate movement within the broader MMD family with shared democratic ideals and values.
Mr Lusambo who is MMD Die Hard National Coordinator says the movement has been in existence since the days of late President Levy Mwanawasa and that it will never cease to exist.
He says the statement attributed to MMD Deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu threatening to ban the existence of the movement goes to confirm that there is an alleged evil scheme within the MMD to annihilate the youth movement from the political scene.
He adds that attempts by Mr Nyangu to write them letters threatening to ban the MMD Die Hard are nothing but laughable, adding that it is almost comical for Mr Nyangu to issue threatening statements against the very organization that he personally used to his benefit when it suited him.
Mr Lusambo says the MMD Die Hard has existed to protect the party’s interests against individuals with questionable, narrow and selfish interests.
He has advised Mr Nyangu to simply encourage them to play their role of protecting the MMD.
He states that Mr Nyangu will do well to concentrate on party administration which includes disciplining truant members who are causing divisions by calling for an illegal extraordinary national convention.
Mr Lusambo says they find it odd that Mr Nyangu who appears keen on meting disciplinary action against the MMD Die Hard appears disinterested in bringing to book cantankerous members causing anarchy in the party.
He adds that the MMD should concentrate on rebuilding ahead of 2016.
Mr Lusambo says Mr Nyangu and other leaders opposed to their existence should do a little self-introspection to find out how they personally benefited from the existence of the MMD Die Hard.
