MMD Diehards Youths National Coordinator Gerald Chiluba says there is nothing sinister about the demotion of their leader Felix Mutati as the move is meant to booster team work.

And Chiluba has commended his party president for jump starting the country’s economy which he found in a state of disrepair when he was appointed.

In a statement issued to the media outspoken youth said MMD members were greatful to president Edgar Lungu for the extraordinary gesture towards the party when he entrusted the country’s economy in the hands of their leader.

“As MMD Die hard youth wing we wish to thank His Excellence President Edgar Chagwa Lungu for having selflessly appointed Hon. Felix Chipota Mutati to serve as minister of finance.

“The gesture was very extraordinary not only in the political life of Zambian politics but also in the political life African politics. Because it calls for trust and confidence to entrust the sensitive ministry like ministry of finance into the hands of an opposition leader.

“We wish to categorically state that, the appointing of ministers is the President’s prerogative and therefore no one can question the presidents wisdom to switch players on the pitch as the driving interest of the coach is ensure that victory is achieved by using techniques that sometimes cannot be understood by spectators,” Chiluba said.

Chiluba thanked Mutati for his valuable contribution towards repairing the country’s economy and that he hoped the spirit of hard work will be taken to his new Ministry.

“We also want to thank Hon. Felix Mutati for having jump start the country’s economy which was almost in the state of desrepair, because of his valuable contribution and team work he managed to move the vehicle of our economy a thousand miles ahead. We are confident that he shall take the spirit of hard work to the Ministry of Works and Supply because our interest is to effectively and deligently serve the Zambian people,” he said.

To the opposition, Chiluba said there was nothing worthy of celebrations because his President will continue to add value to the governance of the country through his new post.

“As MMD youths we want to assure Hon. Mutati of our continued unreserved suppport in his new jacket as minister of works and supply and we shall continue to act without hesitation to defend him and the party from unwarranted attacks.

“Finally, we want to urge some opposition political parties not to make an issue out these reshuffles because there are a normal thing in every government in the world. Therefore, there is nothing sinister about the reshuffle of Hon. Mutati for the opposition to be yapping uncontrollably,” he said.

Mutati was last week removed as Minister of Finance and taken to the Ministry of Works and Supply.

    • Why thank Lungu and not the Zambians. It’s not LUNGU’S country, he is just abusing his authority bucause the Zambians voted out MMD anyway. GO AWAY MMD die hards!

    • This brainless MMD dunderhead is just reading a hand written script whose author is no doubt Mutati himself just to remind the govt that Mutati still belongs to MMD and its a sign to show that Mutati will almost certainly jump ship come 2021 or even as early as next year. Mutati is a snake, you can never trust a snake!

    • This was unnecessary by Chiluba.

      Saying that, that is how Lusambo became a Minister. So there is a method to this madness.

      Thanks

  1. There is nothing to “die hard” for in these politics of the belly. This boy is just scavenging for food. Work hard boy.
    The economy which is now growing at 4% down from the 6% wen Mutati was appointing can’t b said to have been jumped started.
    Lets use statistics in presenting our case not talking anyhow.

  2. Kono bulushwe bwamwa Zambia bwa nyenyisa, I mean, the economy is seriously debt riden and the IMF just ordered Lungu to fire Mutati and ask for a debt reschedling from China and yet this is a horrific performamce these MMD lunatics deem as being a “contribution and team work he managed to move the vehicle of our economy a thousand miles ahead’. Anyway, maybe the chap was misquoted because the Zambian economy is on that same road Kabila was on the other day in Katanga, stuck in the mud making zero progress! And this to Chiluba is progress, you bet he is measuring us by his ancesteral home standards, Katanga. Ba Chiluba kwena mwa luba!

  3. MMD Die Hard Youth Coordinator is a redundant position. Just call yourself MMD Youth Chairperson or something like that. The genesis of the Die Hard blabla was when Nevous Mumba came back to Zambia from Canada (where he was High Commissioner) and factions developed between his camp and the RB camp. The Nevous Mumba faction had a youth grouping supporting him (led by Bowman). They could not call themselves MMD youth since such a grouping already existed in the official party structure, they branded themselves MMD Die Hard Youth and Bowman called himself the coordinator. As they grew in stature and profile becoming more outspoken than the official MMD youth faction, they slow started positioning themselves as the voice of the youth in MMD and they dropped the ‘die hard’….and Bowman…

  4. ‘….and Bowman became the MMD Youth coordinator. Today he in Lusaka Province Minister and believe it or not fancies himself in State House in the not so long distant future. That is the caliber of the politics and politicians in Zambia. We may scoff at the current MMD Die Hard coordinator, Gerald Chiluba, but history shows he is on the right projectory. Lord help us.

  5. These were all sorts of cadre support arguments to try to convince the people that the king has new cloths but the facts are all there to see, he is stack naked. Lungu’s competent credentials have been debunked ad nauseam, yet they still proved irresistible to those who wanted to give a veneer of pseudo-logic to their tribal bigotry. I whence wholly abhor the likes of this unintelligent fool called Chiluba’s opinion above
    It’s like listening to Dora Siliya talking about Lungu in feats of faux-intellectual acrobatics, non-factual contortions designed to force a square peg into a round hole, and Nkandu Luo’s refusal to acknowledge the mountain of evidence of the shameful incompetence and kleptomania that characterise Lungu’s governence reminded me that however friendly or educated the…

  6. are, they all subscribe to Lungu’s stinking kleptomaniac tendencies that are bankrupting this country. Be it Chiluba above with zero education or Luo with her PHd from god knows where Brunei is, they are stinking thieves that would do anything to loot state coffers.
