Kalaba To Be Unveiled DP President In August

Former foreign affairs minister Harry Kalaba is set to be announced as Democratic Party leader in August.

DP interim spokesperson Judith Kabemba has announced that Kalaba was the party’s choice.

And the party has claimed that none of the existing political parties are playing their role of keeping those in power in check because they have dedicated their allegiance to individuals and not people that elected them in office.

Kabemba said the Democratic Party has come to change the status quo of politics in Zambia and those underrating it will be in for a rude shock by 2021.

She says political parties in Zambia have sold their allegiance and are failing to satisfy Zambians on their role and it is the reason Democratic Party has come on the scene to play a role that others have abandoned.

“Most of those that we trusted with responsibility of standing up for this country have decided to give their allegiance to individuals and not mother Zambia, lack of political will, high levels of thirsty for materialism and corruption amongst the current leadership is what has continued to deprive Zambians from accessing essential amnesties,” she said.

Meanwhile, Kabemba said the party is aware that Kalaba is still a serving Member of Parliament under the Patriotic Front and still hopeful that he will lead Democratic Party during the 2021 elections.

She said Kalaba has exhibited that he is a good leader by resigning from his ministerial position due to corrupt practices by those in power.

“We didn’t join exiting parties because we have seen that the parties that are there right now are not providing solutions to the Zambian people, when you look at the current parties, show me which party is not lifting a stone, show me which party is not lifting a panga, honestly are those the political parties you want us to join?

“The answer is a big no, we have principles, we have values that we are standing on as a Democratic Party and we want to bring something new to this country,” she added.

Kabemba has announced that Democratic Party will be launched in August this year in Kitwe.

    Good luck Harry, hope you will contribute positively to the democratic governance of this nation in the capacity of opposition party.

    Congratulations Mr Kalaba but bear it in minds that politics is not an easy game you need supporters and popularity. If you won’t be care this may mark the end of your career. Look at some if your friends who rushed in making their own parties they are now finished. The likes of Mulongoti, Gen Muyanda , Tayali the list is endless. So let’s hope you don’t want to be like them just increasing a number of parties that don’t provide checks and balances. Ba Kabemba, NAREP has never lifted stones and panga including FDD under Madam Nawakwi so don’t lie. It is easier said than done. Wait and see what force others to fight back.

    First of all resign from those parties that lift Pangas then we will know you hate Pangaism. Short of that you’re still one. Also run away from ‘sweet talk’, be as close to the truth as possible otherwise you will be amoung those who failed to make it. Good luck!

    Be truthful to God and People.When good leader leads people rejoice,but when bad leader leads people cries.Because of unfaithful ,when people leave office they are jailed.We are suffering as if we are in a poor land,but because of poor leadership.In the Name of Jesus Christ they are stealing.so Mr kalaba be steady and listern to God and people who real fear God.Some pastors now,instead of advising the president are quite just looking for money.instead of worshipping God they are worshiping a person.good lucky Mr kalaba,God bless.
