MMD National Youth Secretary, Bowman Lusambo has said that the statement attributed to veteran politician, Vernon Mwaanga on suspected rigging of elections is careless and must be condemned.
Mr Lusambo said that Dr. Mwaanga’s statement is a threat to national security.
Mr. Lusambo told ZNBC News that it is a known fact that Dr. Mwaanga’s statement is merely meant to incite Zambians to reject the election results in an event President Edgar Lungu wins.
Mr. Lusambo said Dr. Mwaanga, and the opposition political parties know too well that President LUNGU is headed for a resounding victory.
Dr. Mwaanga was on Saturday quoted in the media urging opposition parties to strictly monitor and scrutinize the tallying of votes in the forth coming elections to avoid manipulation and abuse of the electoral process.
Meanwhile, Mr Lusambo has said that Zambians should desist from entertaining visionless political party leaders who do not see anything good in others.
Mr. Lusambo said that he is not surprised that the UPND Leadership has condemned the move by President Lungu to deliver about 80 percent of the new constitution saying they do not see anything good in the government.
Mr. Lusambo said that such leaders should not be taken seriously saying it is not possible for President Lungu to fail to deliver in all areas as claimed by the UPND.
He said that such kind of bitterness exhibited by leaders UPND President Hakainde Hichilema is not good for a developing nation like Zambia and that political players should strive to co-exist.
Mr. Lusambo said that it is important that where the party in government has done well they should be commended, and where they have not fared well they should be condemned saying that is the kind of check and balances the people want to see coming from the opposition.
