The BMD youth league's National Working Commitee yesterday resumed for an urgent meeting following the leaked chats from the UDC NEC whattsapp group.
The purpose of the meeting was meant to discuss the current state of the BMD and its relations with the UDC and to try and see if we could call for a meeting with the BNF, BCP, BPP youth leagues as well as Moono wa Baithuti to broker peace between the UDC contracting partners.
The idea to call for Adv Sidney Pilane to step down from the parties presidency was not part of the agenda.
It was done to fullfill the interests of a few individuals for their own selfish ends.
I asked to be excused from attending the meeting yesterday because of my tight schedule, and so all this was done and agreed
The BMD exists in a democratic setting were freedom of expression is at the core of our foundation, any conversation about who should step down is allowed but there has to be a constructive debate on the said matter and win each other over through superior logic and not on the basis that one is not sellable or appealing to people.
It is unfair and undermining the efforts and contributions Adv Sidney Pilane has made to the BMD.
We know that the letter was leaked deliberately by one of us as an attempt to draw division and humiliate the Adv Sidney Pilane.
Yours in liberal democracy.
