    Looking forward to 2021! Hon kalaba you have my vote! Don’t be pressured to resign as MP , that was a mandate given to you by people of Bahati not PF! With that in mind any well meaning Zambian would avoid by elections at all costs with our current economic status. Instead on focusing on why we as a nation keep sinking In debt and the high levels of corruption you are busy asking for a by election, zambians can be petty at times what a shame!!!

    I knew it this man &kambwili r friends kambwili acted as John the Baptist to prepare the way for kalaba that’s why I can’t vote for pipo who were once Pfs bcoz amano yamoyene all they want is to become presidents not to work for the pipo

    Kalaba is a better candidate than HH joined hands with thugs of his kind Muna Janta and Valentine Chitalu to rip off pensioners through his two outfits.

    Africa life financial services used to siphon off billions out of Zambia for their overseas cuts and Africa Life Insurance used to pay paltry pensions to retirees. The whole scheme is a Ponzi scheme.

    Africa Life Insurance has been externalising millions of Kwacha every year disguised as reinsurance premium through HH’s criminal partners Africa Life South Africa. During the last 10 years over K417 million has been externalized.

    What is BOZ doing about it?
    When is ZRA moving in to slap transfer pricing penalties?
    When is the PIA appointing an independent actuary to investigate and report ti the Ministry the scam HH is running to find his elections from policyholders and retirees money?

    • Henry

      Why only HH’s businesses target?

      Why Sikutwa whose Madison Financial company has faile to pay back as little as K250,000 to a depositor is not investigated by BOZ?
      Are they not aware that Madison Financial had no capacity left to pay depositors back?
      They lost K54 million as loan given to Focus Financial group that is closed by BOZ?

      Is BOZ not aware of the fact that Atlas Mara Bank is struggling to meet it’s capital requirement due to Madison group not able to pay K150 million it owes to it for a loan it gave to Sikutwa’s company on personal guarantee of Dikhta and financial guarantee of Madison General Insurance?

      What is governor of BOZ doing about it?

  21. Corruption now will be worse

    Kalaba shall never be a President of this country. Even the people who support this good for nothing tribalist can just keep on dreaming.

  22. Victor Mulemba

    Iwe we need Kalaba he has come as a Redeemer pliz don’t criticize HK. He is the only one with the key to open and stop vices like corruption, injustice, nepotism and no equity in the way the incurbent government is running the affairs of this nation. Honestly speaking I can’t worst my vote on a leader who has got no heart for his pipo.

  23. Sibweni

    Harry kalaba is ready 2 bcom leading political leader no but a leading political dreamer wait and see. DA Is a party whch is die natural politically. Hk is undecide whether PF or DA bcoz is thirsty 4 money and mining business is doin with friends and no political leader has pipo waitin if he wins election 2 give them contracts bcoz that’s truth. We poor pipo used by political leader 2 reach state house and once there receive only rich pipo comin 2 invest and things wil remain the sam has it was in unip,mmd,pf and it shal b in DA.

  24. Mr. K

    Kalaba is a fool simple

    • muchindu

      HH is a heartless capitalist.
      His worker are paid 650 kwacha a month with shanty huts to live and work 14 hours a day.

  25. Bamuna

    And why is Kalaba still PF MP if he claims to be principled?

  26. Vivy

    eh yoo you gat my vote in 2021.Proudly bahati resident

  27. Abi

    Zambia things,,tiyenayo

  28. soso

    DP is a BID

  29. Topgun

    Who’s fooling whom. You formed the party for yourself

  30. martin

    if kalaba is true to himself and selfless, he should stop drawing a salary under a pf held seat since he thinks pf is corrupt,
    the trouble in African politics is that people who have failed in business get into politics to get rich but in the western world, people get into politics to drive reforms in policies that affect them when doing business.

  31. chilufya jacob

    hon kalaba can’t win election in 2021,the reason is simple when sailing a party it takes time if you can recall that party yaba B Y Mwila ZRP,my friends let’s think deeper.
