Lusaka MMD youths warn Kavindele, Shakas to stay away from party convention
Enock Kavindele

Lusaka Province MMD youths have warned that former Republican vice-president Enoch Kavindele and Katuba MMD parliamentarian Jonas Shakafuswa will be physically barred from the party Convention because of their negative comments and insults against President Rupiah Banda.

MMD Lusaka Province youth chairman Chris Chalwe in a press release yesterday indicated that if Kavindele and senior leaders who knew that they were in bad standing with the party wanted to cross the line by going to the party Convention, the choice was theirs.

“As for Mr Kavindele Sir, we shall not allow you in the Convention because of the negative comments and insults against the President, the party and the leadership. The same goes for Mr Shakafuswa and any other senior leaders who know that they are in bad standing with the party,” Chalwe indicated in a statement that was also copied to Lusaka Province acting MMD chairman William Banda.

“If you Mr Kavindele and others want to cross the line the choice is yours, but you must be mindful that the (GIMBOZ) Youths will be waiting to give you a warm welcome because we are the defence, security and military wing of the party.”

Chalwe stated that as MMD youths in Lusaka, they wanted to inform some senior MMD members that the positions at the convention were not up for grabs as they might be thinking.

“The Party presidency all of us we know it is for His Excellency the Republican President Mr Rupiah Banda and it is not negotiable,” Chalwe stated. “The Party Vice-Presidency is reserved for the Hon Vice-President of the Republic Mr George Kunda, for one obvious reason, it is his time to be Party Vice-President.”

Chalwe stated that Vice-President Kunda deserved the position of MMD vice-president because he had served under two past presidents, Frederick Chiluba and the late Levy Mwanawasa, diligently and with total loyalty and allegiance.

“Hon Kunda has never changed colour against the MMD, he has never turned his back against the party, and he has been there for the women, the youths, for the party even in very difficult, hard and trying times,” stated Chalwe.

Hon Kunda has proved beyond any reasonable doubt he is the man for party vice-president. So we shall campaign for him and support him. We are already consulting and strategising with our other colleagues in the eight provinces.”
