MOVEMENT for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) national youth coordinator Bowman Lusambo has described Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) leader Edith Nawakwi’s attacks on President Edgar Lungu as distasteful and malicious.

“As MMD youths, we have been compelled to respond to continued attacks on President Edgar Lungu by FDD leader Edith Nawakwi. We find Madam Nawakwi’s attacks distasteful and malicious because they are devoid of any facts and merely based on personal hatred and jealousy,” Mr Lusambo said.

He continued, “It appears Madam Nawakwi is basking in the front page headiness offered to her by the Post Newspapers without knowing that she is being used by the newspaper to drive its Edgar Lungu hatred campaign.”

Mr Lusambo added that Ms Nawakwi should be the last person to criticise President Lungu’s governance style because she lacks none of that.

“Zambians have never forgotten how Madam Nawakwi working with her cohorts denied starving Zambians their right to food when she irregularly handled the Carlington Maize scheme,” he said.

“The Carlington Maize saga is a reminder of Madam Nawakwi’s ineptitude and lack of fitness to hold public office. It therefore follows that Madam Nawakwi should not preach to anyone least President Lungu.”

Mr Lusambo added that Ms Nawakwi has no moral authority to preach good governance because her entire political life is littered with scandals.

He advised Ms Nawakwi to be relevant to the political process in this country by offering constructive criticism rather than engaging in cheap political attacks.

“If there is anyone driving Zambia into a ditch, it is the likes of Madam Nawakwi who are hell bent on attacking President Lungu day in and day out. It will not pay for Madam Nawakwi and her accomplices to keep lowering the integrity of the presidency,” he concluded.
