Kalaba’s Party De-Registration Stands, Orders Home Affairs

The Ministry of Home Affairs says Harry Kalaba’s Democratic Party remains de-registered after the Court of Appeals overturned the stay of execution by High Court that had allowed the party to continue operating.

Home Affairs spokesperson Nephas Chifuta said the Democratic Party would not be allowed to operate in light of the court action.

Kalaba resigned from the Patriotic Front on Tuesday and accepted to lead the Democratic Party ahead of the 2021 elections.

FULL STATEMENT

Press release on the non-existence of the Democratic Party.

Members of the public may wish to be informed that late last year the Democratic Party sued Government through the Attorney General on the basis that the Registrar of Societies rejected to issue their Party a duplicate Certificate of registration despite having paid the annual subscription fees during the amnesty period.

The matter proceeded before the High Court which ruled in favour of the Democratic Party. Being dissatisfied with the High Court ruling, the Attorney General appealed before the Court of Appeal which has now issued a stay of execution of the High Court judgement, thus, reinstating the decision of the Registrar of Societies pending full determination of the matter before the Courts of Law.

In view of this current status quo, the Democratic Party is advised to forthwith cease to conduct any political activities across the country until the Court of Appeal orders otherwise.

The Ministry of Home Affairs in its quest to ensure that law and order is maintained, respectfully appeals to the deregistered Democratic Party to adhere to the stay as any violation to this order shall be met with the full force of the Law.

Nephas Chifuta,

Public Relations Officer,

Ministry of Home Affairs.

    Fear has engulfed u guys. Just let Mr Kalaba go ahead, u can not thwart the plans of God u failed Government. U have completely failed the pipo of Zambia no wonder u ar not comfortable of seeing others with potential of transforming this country for better. Y are yo hearts filled with this kind of evil.no matter yo maneuvers u are likely to make, Zambians have lost hope in the failed government of PF ,there is no life span for u after 2021.

    Does it mean that the PF is scared of DP and Harry kalaba ? I don’t think there should be such concerning the DP. Let them operate. ln fact it is a new party that can cause sleepless nights. bushe what’s happening in this country ? what is wrong in letting DP keep their mobilization. what the authorities forget is that by doing this, they make these parties strong and giving them publicity.

    There is nothing like fearing Kalaba. This case has been on it is a matter of law and order. Kalaba is only popular in Luapula period. The best he can do is join the crusade of one man political parties being led by Hakainde. If the matter went to court Kalaba should just challange the court ruling.

    Register it as MENOMENO PARTY if that’s wat u want

  8. Domity Stylish Kafwamba

    The more the parties the less the chances of getting 50+ that’s why they are avoiding Kalaba.

    When you see a party inclining towards the east, just know it is dying. These are last violent kicks of Pf.

    Let the rule of law take it’s course, no one is blocking any part to register, but it is imperative to follow the tenets. Even in the Bible, those who abrogated laid down statutes were, God remove His spirit from them. Most of you are myopic, you can’t see beyond the horizon.

    PF is scared of Harry Kalaba. Edgar is going down unless he changes the ball game. Zambians are already fed up with his mediocre leadership and it seems he can’t read the mood it perhaps his advisors are sugarcoating the unpleasant reality.Even though it’s kind of too late unless Edgar makes radical changes that appease the masses, he is going 👇. Politicians seem not to value lessons learnt from history, either individual mistakes or those made by others whether Zambians, Africans or other parts of the world. Restricting the opposition is not an answer any more given the mood of the masses, search for other answers;its your responsibility.

    That’s what they said when they took the Post to the slaughter house. Let the rule of law take its course. They had the highest court in their pockets innit?

  15. Fenny Nkandu

    The Patriotic Front and its cartels are scared of Harry Kalaba and the DP. Their plan is to kill the DP, but they have failed and they will fail. They are scared so they are now looking for cases against Harry Kalaba. PF please leave Kalaba alone with his party. Why are you showing us your weakness by wanting to have DP stop operating? Shame on you. Kalaba is destined to be the president so don’t stop him.

    SHAME ON YOU BA PF (Pathetic Fools)

  16. Togarasei

    Please people lets focus on the topic. Here is a free workable solution for Hon Kalaba in the face of this challenge; quickly fly to SCOAN in Nigeria and meet Prophet TB Joshua for serious prayers.

    Those are the moments when you realise that you have done nothing in the almost ending exams.

  18. TUMELO

    Kalaba is the next President come 2021 pf is afraid. The will of GOD will prevail.pf time to go, bye.

  19. Alismallz

    It looks like pf is afraid of HK and DP please don’t show us that you fear him just do your work right

  20. Chilankalipa

    Even if DP was to freely operate from now on, winning an election can only be in HK and Bushiri’s dreams. Ala fimo kutekanya low low low low. If HK isn’t careful, he might end up the Kabimba way. Plan years not months to form a government. Of course the appeal might be the work of PF through the AG and it is a legal provision which even if abused there is nothing one can do but to wait. Ba HK just join your friends do not die with the appetite for Plot 1.

  21. Enlightened Youth

    @Chilankalipa. I have news for you. The will of God does not take years to play out. God can choose to install or remove anyone at anytime as he sees fit. Our current President is an example. Who knew about him before 2016? It just took a few months to get him into office. Be enlightened my friend to avoid heartache and grief. You dont have to remain in the “Pain” zone. Chikalamikalipa fye nga tamwaka isule amenso.

  22. Big Daddy

    Most of us have burning ambitions for power. We only need to be surrounded by people with wisdom to advise us on the right time and season to pursue such dreams. Kalaba is puffed up with bitterness just like his other brother and under such circumstances his dream will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained. Voters be careful this is not the time to help people get into power for selfish ambitions. Sometimes this guy has moments of brilliance and other times exhibits foolish pride.

  23. mr patriot

    My appeal goes to H.E Edgar Lungu.please mr president jst do yo part if u were destined to b our leader up to a certain period dont force, by wat u do fo us zambians de vote wil tel wether we ar hapy or not nd jt let mr kalaba do all he wants dont b intimidated its God wo choose wat cannot choose wether u,kalaba,HH,chipimo,nawakwi,or anyone.dont b shaken by external factors jt b you.
