Kalaba Warned and Cautioned by Police Over Copperbelt Meetings

Police in Ndola have questioned former Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba for allegedly holding illegal meetings on the Copperbelt.

And Police have recorded a warn and caution from Kalaba.

Kalaba, the Bahati Constituency Member of Parliament for the Patriotic Front arrived at the Ndola Police Headquarters around 10:06hrs accompanied by a sizeable number of cadres.

He was quickly whisked inside the division headquarters amid tight security while Copperbelt Deputy Commissioner of Police Wamunyima Wamunyima chased all journalists and directed police officers to lock up any media personnel.

And speaking to the media after being questioned, Kalaba said he had been summoned to answer to allegations of holding illegal meetings.

“They allege that I have been having illegal meetings because I didn’t get permits from the police, so a warn and caution statement has been taken, it’s nothing for me in the quest for liberty,  things like this will continue happening but the Zambian people are counting on us,” Kabala told Journalist.

He said he had never been afraid of being arrested adding that no amount of intimidation will stand in his way.

      Why not? Does it take special qualifications to be a President? List them so that we see whether he qualifies or not.

    He is a free citizen of this country. Let him meet whomever he wants. This is why we say this country is in a dictatorship.

      There is no law that requires anyone to get a permit. You only need to notify the police. The two are different.

    He comes from where Nevers Mumba comes from, stealing is in his blood. The history of the Economy rundown of this country is full of thieves who have gone with impunity because of tribalism.Some people only want to get political power in order to abuse and steal tax payers money.The penal code must be amended so that a government worker who is convicted of an offence involving public funds must serve a custodial sentence.

    I would advise my young brother kalaba to merge with Kambwili for the good of the opposition. Besides we can’t have FIVE(5) presidential candidates in 2021 from the northern region alone i.e. kalaba, Kambwili, nervas Mumba, mutati, chishimba. Mind you regional votes will be drastically split and give PF an advantage. Please think over this before its too late otherwise you are confusing us!!

      Good analysis these are people whose intentions are now very well known ! Of course to enrich themselves. Zambians are very careful and they shall not be duped by regionalists and tribalists whose sole aim is to pursue an agenda of wako ni wako kind of politics. Zambia needs unity and oneness not selfish people who want to get into politics for personal gain.

    sometimes I wonder why many people are hungry for power,honestly the corruption that Mr kalaba is saying that it’s his reason for resigning from pf is lack of competence.Imwe we send the members of parliament to represent us and be a voice for the voiceless but instead, when something goes wrong they break away and forms a political party. Don’t run away from the battle field comrades,you had to stand firm and fight the battle with all your might. it is only posterity that will judge you guys

    If we allow an investor employ two people and we allow it, it means we’re going to have half of our population as investors, and what will be dangote in this nation, the owner? The contracts we give to foreign Nations and unqualified locals, what is the role of Zambia national service, why do we still have it in defense if not to construct roads, bridges, farm blocks etc. Poverty is an issue of the mind.

    Was Kalaba cautioned because he did not inform the Police on his meetings? Or is it the usual of Public Order Act.
