The opposition MMD has with immediate effect suspended its National Youth Secretary Bowman Lusambo for alleged gross misconduct and bringing the name of the party into disrepute.
Party Spokesman Rapheal Nakachinda told Journalists that Mr Lusambo was suspended on Monday, September 22 2015.
Mr Nakachinda said Mr. Lusambo has been suspended due to his failure to toil the party line.
He said Mr Lusambo’s close association with the ruling Patriotic Front has been a source of concern for the MMD.
Mr Nakachinda added that Mr Lusambo clearly failed to advance the causes and beliefs of the MMD.
‘Yes i can confirm that Bowman Lusambo has been suspended from the party. A few weeks ago he was served with a letter charging him for gross misconduct and bringing the party’s name in disrepute for his continued statements and utterances through the media that are against the party policy on many issues,’ Mr Nakachinda said.
He added, ‘His clear alignment with the PF even when as a party leadership has made its position clear, you see him going contrary to that position.’
