MMD youths have given Mufumbwe Member of Parliament Steven Masumba a 48-hour ultimatum to resign from the party.
The youths have accused Mr. Masumba who is also Local government deputy minister of campaigning against the MMD.
MMD’s Die-hard Youths National Coordinator Bowman Lusambo has told ZNBC News in an interview that Mr. Masumba has lost favour with his constituency.
But Mr. Masumba has described the remarks by the MMD youths as petty politics.
He has told ZNBC News that he believes in politics of development, adding that he is still popular in Mufumbwe.
