MMD Die-Hard National Youth Coordinator Bowman Lusambo has condemned MMD youths in Kawambwa district in Luapula Province who allegedly verbally abused Home Affairs Deputy Minister and Kawambwa PF MP Nickson Chilangwa over his physical disability.
Mr Lusambo says as MMD youths, they feel moved to apologise to Mr Chilangwa and place on record their disappointment with such behaviour attributed their colleagues in Luapula Province.
He says as MMD youths they believe Mr Chilangwa is competent in politics and his physical disability should never be a political issue.
Mr Lusambo adds that as MMD youths, they have always treated Mr Chilangwa with utmost respect and admiration for his strong will to grow his political career, stating that he is a true example of courage and hard work to the youths beyond the disability movement.
He laments that the behaviour of the said youths in Kawambwa is unZambian and does not in any way represent the strong beliefs on equality that the MMD as an organisation espouses.
