MMD Die hard youth wing has also observed that in whatever context the story was published in which Mr. Hichilema was quoted, the youth wings find it distasteful and racist and unZambian for the UPND leader to allegedly make such a statement.
National Coordinator Bowman Lusambo has told Qfm news in a statement that youths of his party further find remarks by the UPND leader hard to believe that he being an opposition leader who is vying for the highest political office in the land could harbor such racist thoughts.
Mr. Lusambo says Zambia has come a long way in its 50 year history and his youth wing interactions with other youths in the country today show that the country has healed from its colonial past.
He says youths in the country will not allow leaders such as Mr. Hichilema to drag the nation back to its colonial times because people in the country have embraced all races and creed for the betterment of all.
And the opposition youth leader has observed that Dr. Scott’s performance should not be judged based on the color of his skin or where his ancestors hailed from.
He says as MMD youths they will judge Dr Scott and his fellow PF leaders’ performance based on what they promised the people of Zambia.
He adds that as the country celebrates its jubilee year, the call of his party’s youths is for politicians to remain united and show love and tolerance towards one another.
