“Don’t Kutina The Panga Family” – MMD Youths
Movement for Multi party Democracy (MMD) National Youth Treasurer Lengwe Cornelius Bwalya has charged that it is a shame that at such a time as this in our nation, we have a vision-less, over-zealous dancing President. He said when a lot of our people are in pain and anguish through their loss of jobs and many other social economical challenges been faced, President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is busy trying to add to our misery by subjecting our people to suppression of their civil liberties.
Mr Bwalya’s comment comes in the wake of continued Police brutality that has rocked the nation in the recent past. Most notably was the teargassing of a peaceful meeting held by MMD President Nevers Sekwila Mumba in Lundazi of which the Police has said is acceptable. Furthermore, Mr Bwalya expressed dismay at the intimidation of ZAMPOST employees who were dragged and forced to disperse when they protested against their board, among other grievances.
“President Lungu should be ashamed! Zambia is a democratic state. How many people is he going to drag into police cells for their constitutional rights? How do you treat peaceful demonstrators like thieves? We watched with absolute horror how the police handled the CBU students and now the ZAMPOST Employees, The Post Newspapers, MMD. Who is next?” Mr Bwalya wondered.
“We know both the President and his top dog, Inspector-General Kakoma Kankaja are still excited at the prospect of being where they are today. But may I remind them that their days are numbered. This nation is a nation under God and people right now are so confused with the prospects of 2016 general elections and PF think they have already won. Believe me there shall be surprises.”
Mr Bwalya further urged all well meaning Zambians, the Church, Civil Society Groups and all stakeholders to stand up without fear to this moral degradation of our society by the “Panga Family” government and save the nation. He said we can not afford to lose the peace and tolerance we have enjoyed for so long in this nation to be taken away from us by a group of power hungry individuals.
Mr Bwalya said looking at what is happening in Burundi, there was evidence everywhere around of the need to preserve our peace, encourage political tolerance and uphold democracy. He said that MMD Youths are resolved to stand by the slogan “Don’t Kutina” and shall not be intimidated by the PF but will fight for justice and the freedoms that were fought for in the past.
