MMD National Youth Bowman Lusambo is on Monday set to meet the leadership of South Africa’s opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) headed by Julius Malema.

According to a letter dated August 28 2015 from the Office of the EFF Chief Whip and released to the media, the meeting will take place at EFF Headquarters in Braamfontein, Johannesburg at 12 Hours on Monday, August 31 2015.

The two leaders are expected to discuss a number of issues such as the participation of young people in politics and the economic emancipation of young people in South Africa and Zambia.

They will also explore how the EFF and the MMD could strength mutual cooperation for the deepening of democracy in the two countries.

Commenting on the invitation, Mr Lusambo said he was looking forward to meeting the EFF team to share experiences on the MMD youth wing we can galvanize the youth vote especially as we head towards 2016.

“Mr Malema has emerged as a true icon for the New Africa, he represents great hope for the continent which if managed properly, all its inhabitants can live a decent life,” Mr Lusambo said.

The Economic Freedom Fighters is currently the third-largest party in both houses of the South African parliament receiving 1,169,259 votes and a 6.35% share of the vote in the 2014 general election.

  1. I hope Lusambo will not learn the hate speech and divisions that Julius Malema brought to the ANC that led to his expulsion. Do not come back to provoke the already the already intimidated pastor cum politician Nevers Mumba.

    • I like Bowman Lusambo, he is not that violent like PF thugs. He fights, he fights with fists.
      Ministry of Youth should pay for his trip. Please support Bowman, the MMD Die-hard.
      UPND need produce such a strong figure too.

    • In meeting a hardcore nationalist in Malema, Lusambo is better off to prepare a policy paper which he should also share with Zambians focusing on his Zambian Indigenization policy and plan for strong internal pressures that more often result in the state’s intervention in the private sector. Its easy for populists to say that our primary objectives of the indigenization policy is to create opportunities and empower locals; to maximize local retention of profits; and to raise the level of intermediate capital and goods production. Populists suggests that the country’s Enterprises Promotion Decree should be predicated on a strong feeling of political and economic nationalism. But is this sustainable beyond utopia?

  3. I respect a number of issues Malema espouses to boost the dignity of citizens resource and business ownership. However, i believe his proposed radical approach with respect to indigenization Policies if blindly followed would be realistically injurious to any country in an interdependent and open world order. Fact, MMD founded and and still thriving on values of “neoliberalism” is actually mother of this Chicago school of economics-neoclassical school of economics in Zambian politics which Malema detests with passion. At every opportunity he expresses perplexity at just what neoliberalism is to Africa because it favors the deregulation of markets and industries, the diminution of taxes and tariffs, and the privatization of government functions, passing them over to private business…

  5. Who is Bowman going to represent. MMD or himself? Does EFF & MMD share ideology or is it a case of people who don’t stand for something falling for anything (as aptly put across by Wynter).
    On a different note, like Julius’ brutal politics or not, we need it in Zambia. Deleleshini ya chilamo.

  6. South Afrika has a vibrant constitution that has allowed all sorts of characters to make it to the stage. In Zambia we are still grappling with petty blockades against expression and association. Add to that the fact that we always think one ethnicity is out to get the other and you have a good mix for intimidation and self-defeatism.

  7. I THINK LUSAMBO IS GOING ON HIS OWN. HE IS A PUBLICITY SEEKER. JULIUS MALEMA IS A LOOSE CANON AND WE HOPE LUSAMBO DOES NOT BRING THAT RECKLESSNESS HERE.

    EFF IS ESPOUSING THE MUGABE VERSION OF COMMUNISM/SOCIALISM WHICH IS NOWHERE NEAR MMD POLICY, MAYBE RAINBOW APRTY.
