Harry Kalaba is slowly becoming irrelevant despite having impressed everyone with his resignation. I have always said Kalaba is better off in the background – under someone’s control. For now I feel like he has two options or maybe three which are as follows:
1. Harry Kalaba he is very good at making good and touching speeches but he lacks three qualities needed of a politician in Zambia. The need to be radical, practical and physical. His speeches are not shaking the incumbent president……they are beginning to sound rhetoric. To resolve this problem Kalaba needs to surround himself with people, youths inclusive who have the qualities that he doesn’t have. He also needs to have a lot of people and pages on social media to share his posts and speeches. To campaign for him – in short.
2. The second option is that he should consider working either with HH or Kambwili. But I am more of the view that he should try to work with Kambwili. The two can make the necessary noise country wide and they will shake the ground nearly daily. They will even attract more people from the PF to join them.
3. The last option is for him to stop making speeches and remain quiet. If he can’t be physical and radical in the fight against corruption then he is doing nothing. Dr. Chishimba Kambwili has performed well so far in the fight against corruption. He has been able to bring out factual information and he points out the things that are affecting us….what Kambwili is missing is that….he has focused so much on attacking the incumbent than he has on telling the Zambian people of what he intends to do if voted in as President in 2021. He needs to go out in other areas other than Lusaka and Copperbelt….
I am actually sure that the PF members at grassroot level and even the cadres still count Kambwili as their own person. Because of that they can’t harm him but will just pledge allegiance to the finger that feeds them otherwise Kambwili is more like the owner of the PF….he can turn tables any minute….he still has the necessary support of the PF.
