FILE: President Lungu share a light moment with Foreign Affairs minister Harry Kalaba at Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission in New York where he addressed Zambian’s Living in United States of America

Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has commended Harry Kalaba for resigning his position as Foreign Affairs Minister.

Mr Kambwili said Mr Kalaba’s departure from the PF government is the beginning of something huge.

He said the resignation of Mr Kalaba will be followed by more big names because a revolution is coming.

“You kept you word my brother. It’s better to leave the den of thieves and fight for your country,” Mr Kambwili wrote on his Facebook page.

“Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba resigns from the kangaroo government with immediate effect. Citing the rampant corruption that is robbing the ordinary Zambian citizen of their wealth.”

And UPND Chairperson for Strategy and Mobilisation Sylvia Masebo says the resignation of Mr Kalaba is commendable.

Ms Masebo said Mr Kalaba’s resignation must surely shake the false foundation with which the PF Government has claimed it’s legitimacy.

She said the development is profound and a rare principled stand not seen in Zambia in a long time.

“We live in a time where greed and the quest to enrich oneself at the expense of the masses has taken center stage in African leaders. To find a leader who will resign on moral grounds citing high levels of corruption in his government is a rare occurrence in African politics and needless to mention, Zambia,” Ms Masebo said.

“Our forefathers fought for independence so we could have social, political and economic freedom. The levels of looting and gross mismanagement of state resources that we are currently witnessing under Edgar Lungu’s regime is disheartening and unprecedented and threatens national security and unity.It must be stopped not tomorrow or next week, but now!”

Ms Masebo said the decision to resign by Mr. Kalaba is noble and should be commended by all patriotic Zambians regardless of political affiliation.

“He is a rare breed and his actions should be emulated by all those sitting government officials that are not in agreement with the unprecedented levels of corruption and looting by the PF government.”

She added,”I still insist, it’s not a partisan affair but a Zambian issue that affects every citizen of any colour, creed, sex, tribe and religion. Let’s join forces and weed out these elements of corruption that are impoverishing our country.”

“If we don’t speak as one people to stop this wanton plunder of our national resources by crooks and criminals that control our Government, who will speak for us? Every Zambian voice from Kaputa to Gwembe, Chipata to Mongu, Mbala to Sesheke and Zambezi must speak out and say enough is enough!”

Meanwhile, Luapula Province PF Secretary Francis Musunga has said that Harry Kalaba’s resignation as Foreign Affairs Minister is a huge relief to the party.

Reacting to Mr. Kalaba’s resignation on Tuesday, Mr. Musunga who is also Samfya Town Council Chairman said the PF in Luapula Province would now breathe a collective sigh of relief following Mr. Kalaba’s exit from government.

“Honorable Kalaba’s resignation is a huge relief. It should have come earlier than this because we became fatigued of Mr. Kalaba’s clandestine activities which include sponsoring anarchists who are now removing party flags in Mansa,” said Mr. Musunga.

Mr. Musunga said Mr. Kalaba had become a danger to the unity of the party because of his treacherous behaviour.

He said his resignation was long overdue especially that President Lungu had kept him even when he continued to sponsor confusion in the Province.

Mr. Musunga said the PF in Luapula Province had always been ready to meet Mr. Kalaba in the Bahati by-elections if he chose to recontest.

He said Mr. Kalaba had no capacity to defeat the ruling party in the Province because the structures were intact and fully behind President Edgar Lungu.

Mr. Musunga explained that he had appealed to Mr. Kalaba to be patient with himself before engaging in an agenda to become President.

“I personally talked to Honorable Kalaba and advised him against being too fast and overly excited to challenge President Lungu. He became big – headed and forgot that it is PF that made him who is. He was a nothing before PF picked him to contest the Bahati seat,”

    • Harry has not left PF, not yet, tekanyeni.
      Yaluma is next.
      Inonge will resign.
      Kambwili should have resigned, not fired.
      GBM resigned.
      I wonder why Chikwanda is still sponsoring PF, he has no relationship anymore.

      LUNGU SHOULD NOW PROVE HE IS NOT CORRUPT BY INSTITUTING AN INQUIRY
      NOW INTO THE FIRE TENDERS SAGA.
      MASEBO AND KAMBWILI ARE LIKE THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK. THEY SHOULD JUST SHUT UP

    • Meanwhile Dora, Mutati, Kaizer and Kampyango (the 4 riders of doom) who have completely destroyed PF are enriching themselves by the hour. The President failed to listen to our advice. The people are not happy today, the PF govt have scored many own goals- everything was in place but complete failure on the part of govt priorities, luxury SUVs, fake govt contracts, so many travels abroad with an entire entourage that just accumulate huge bills, killing farmers with an unfair maize price for the sake of millers connected to some people in govt. Kampyango last advice for you is improve the cells because you and your fellow riders of doom are definitly going in after an almost certain defeat in 2021. Kambwili and Masebo you are just opportunist crooks and you too should be in cells! Well…

    • I HAVE NEVER BEEN A KALABA SYMPATHIZER OR FAN – HE PLANNED UNNECESSARY FOREIGN TRIPS FOR ECL. KALABA HAS BEEN SO INCOMPETENT IN ALL THOSE EXTERNAL PRESIDENTIAL TRIP PLANNING.
      ===================================================
      THE ACCUSING FINGER, WE AWAIT MORE NEWS ON THIS WONDERFUL RESIGNATION
      With the aforementioned, KALABA can not make a good president. The chap would circle the world gallivanting as he pushed his master to. Its a case where he wanted to travel on those useless trips ECL frequented. KALABA is equally corrupt I bet you. The real falloff was the LPM resignation 1994.

    • MOST OF US HATE CORRUPTION – NOW CAN YOU PEOPLE WITH INFORMATION ON THIS EXCRUCIATING VICE EXPOSE THE I.D.O.T.S PERPETRATING IT IN GOVERNMENT.
      ===============================================
      Please be that great whistle blower Zambia needs so that the people can decide whether to bring down this alleged corrupt regime legally. Are we witnessing yet another case of a disappointed fellow who never got his way. Now HK take all those alleged corrupt incidences to appropriate institutions. Else, you are just another accomplice.
      Its either ECL is doing a great job sealing all those loopholes or these cowards don’t have civil knowledge on how to impede corrupt practices in Government through laid down legal means.

    • If it was in developed countries, the Police and Anti-corruption bodies would have called Mr.Kalaba and Mr.Mulusa to get evidence on their resignation.This is no small matter Zambians.Two ministers in two weeks have left cabinet all citing corruption and all this is being taken as business as usual?
      These pf shenanigans must account for the plunder of public resources

  1. A challenge always arises when a villager, brought and exposed to the city by a relative eventually feels he too can be the boss so he decides to rebel..
    Mr Kalaba can be;
    genuinly consened of the corruption or
    it could be a way of him saying he deserves to be the leader.
    An inquiry of the corruption levels at MOFA will determine whether he was able to control his own ministry/household

    • Here is the thing. Both Kambwili and Masebo were fired from government over allegation of corruption. So they are the wrong people to applaud Kalaba for his actions and revelations

    • That’s the problem with us Zambians, we lack analysis. Kalaba although as minister of Home Affairs was accused ati Scarface is using foreign trips to amass wealth, has not been very controversial and resigned on his on accord. A disgraced person like Masebo has no moral reasons to celebrate this honourable resignation.

  2. While some are commending the resignation, others are relieved but the masses are still questioning the wrongs and the failure to deliver. A government that seems to forget it’s call of duty must be reminded.

    Quote: “Our forefathers fought for independence so we could have social, political and economic freedom. The levels of looting and gross mismanagement of state resources that we are currently witnessing under Edgar Lungu’s regime is disheartening and unprecedented and threatens national security and unity.It must be stopped not tomorrow or next week, but now!”

    In all honesty, we are even late. Not now but it should have been stopped yesterday or better yester year!

  4. Yes they are some top leaders who aren’t working according to the PF manifesto and it’s true it’s time for them to be relieved of their duties now.
    There is always a barometer to measure their performance and the people on the ground know who are hard working PF members or just power hungry hyenas.
    Look at the first people to commend the departure this lazy Kalaba, Masebo and Kambwili, unless you don’t these chaps you can celebrate but for us who know them, it’s a big plus for them to have left PF. Masebo thought Chongwe was a personal to holder seat and did nothing to develop it, where is she today? I wonder whether UPND know who many political parties this woman has tried but failed just like HH.

The koswes have started falling and dying in the wrong places and the bubonic plague is upon us, God help us, these koswes think you had anointed their chief koswe when in actual fact you gave us intelligence to make sound judgment when chosing who to lead us, we got so lazy to the point of not even taking time to hear chief koswe sell or outline what he was to do for the electorate.
    That dununa reverse song must have had the devils autograph on it.

  7. Kalaba was not with pf from the word go after last elections. This was a known fact but lungu kept him under a surveillance and alot was happening. Imilandile, utumapinda, nimiponto.
    Alikasesema mubi . We wish him the best noko alaya . 2021 Pepi Sana will see if he indeed kalaba is popular on the ground.
    I liked kambwili but he was just too fast for plot one.
    Pf will use your force against it’s to win any elections.
    Certainly ndc will be third in 2021 so they are not a factor.
    We in pf have done our physibillity studies and know how 2021 out come will be. Trust me yes 2021 will be tough but pf will win smoothly

  9. SYLVIA DORICA NAFWA MASEBO IS THE MOST USELESS CHARACTER TO COMMENT ON KALABA EXIST FROM PF CABINET… WHEN SHE WAS INVOLVED IN ALOT OF CORRUPTION AND ABUSE OF OFFICE.. EVEN AFTER PEOPLE DEMANDED THAT SHE RESIGN.. SHE ADAMANTLY RESERVE.

    Hon Kalaba NDC doors are wide open. welcome home.

  10. The only nauseating thing I find about this Kalaba saga is the number of big black pots calling the kettle black. In this confusion thieves, the corrupt, avowed tribalists, even those who inherited parties on a tribal card, those who do not allow internal democracy in their parties but preach national democracy – virtually all the vultures – will present themselves as green not black. Kambwili, Gbm, hh, Masebo, kalaba, all the vultures present themselves as the solution when actually they are just another problem, another set of thieves.
    This has religious roots. Jesus said, ‘If you have not sinned yourself go ahead and stone this woman’.

    • True….we on the Kopala can pretend to support Kambwili because we know that right now he’s in a giving mood. All I need is to tell him how the people of Lufwanyama are anxiously waiting for him blahs..and he will dip in his pockets to support my ” mobilization” of Lufwanyama.

  12. Ba kambwili, your friend has resigned. You were fired and unceremoniously expelled from pf. See the difference? As for lungu, I don’t see him completing his term. A serious revolt leading to impeachment is now very likely if he doesn’t change course. It’s now very clear even to some of us who voted for lungu that the guy is stealing with impunity.

  13. This desperation by the opposition is childish and opportunistic. Masebo and Kambwili has no morals, after being part of the rot, today want to be champions of better governance. Thieves chasing thieves. We need a new movement led by a sober and experienced person to lead our country. Where is VINCENT MALAMBO, EDITH NAWAKWI, PATRICK CHISANGA, GODFREY MIYANDA? Zambia can’t be led by frustrated upstarts.

  14. When times are hard such as now the only opposition.politician that I am willing to listen to is Greens Peter Sinkamba. He will study and give a considered opinion. He may make human mistakes but he doesnt pretend to be God.
    You shall judge them by their actions, there are those who jump to conclusions, the ignorant, those who are waiting for their chance to lay their greasy hands on the national loot, those who want their tribe to lead, but they have one thing in common, use every opportunity to get our vote after they put us in a state of emotions.

  20. Kalaba resigns ok so what and who is next? Us Zambians we’re not fools. Corruption this has been there it’s there and it will be there whether unip mmd pf or whoever to be. Some of these leaders toking celebrating Kalabaresignation.com are not even worth to tok about it. As if given a chance to lead this nation they would be any different. And from now on any minister who resigns should at least cite 1 or 2 areas where corruption has taken place in gvt. Not jst saying I hv resigned bcoz of too much corruption. By the way without corruption many people wud lose their jobs in this world Zed inclusive. I’m not supporting corruption but I don’t like Ministers who will only tok abt corruption when things get sour on them.

  23. Let them resign but they should tell their electorate the reasons and what they are going to do about it. If the only reason is that because they didn’t share in the road deals or mukula deals then it begs the question why resign in the first place? I think Mulusa meant well coz he started talking about these things while he was inside and was fired for speaking maybe the truth. Opposition have the right to commend these guys and they should not be insulted coz that’s what they have been talking about.

  24. The biggest mistake president Edgar Lungu has ever made under his tenure is to fire Kambwili.african politics are for people like Kambwili who talk too much.Harry Kalaba’s resignition could have had no impact on PF if Kambwili was still in cabinet.ECL cannot remain with the likes of Lloyd Kazhiya Mulenga,Michael Katambo,Bowman Lusambo,Nkhuwa,Ronald Chitotela,Davis Mwila who have no following then hope to win in 2021-its impossible!!
    ECL SHOULD UP HIS GAME IN 2018.HE CAN STILL REDEEM PF ONCE HE DROPS THE LIKES OF KAIZAR ZULU AND STARTS DOING RIGHT THINGS!!there is too much corruption under ECL.let him start giving huge contracts to Zambian firms who will be keeping the money within to boast our economy,etc!!

  25. KAMBWILI WAS REMOVED BECAUSE HE CARED TO OPPOSE THE PRESIDENT’S VIEWS, WHICH IS ALSO CALLED DOING HIS JOB BY RAISING QUESTIONS AND BEING AMBITIOUS. THE PRESIDENT IS TOO WEAK TO DEAL WITH REAL MINISTERS. HE ENJOYS THE PRAISES NO MATTER WHAT HE SAYS.
    AS WELL, PLEASE STOP DISTANCING THE PRESIDENT TO ALL THE DEALS THAT HAS SEEN ZAMBIA BECOME MORE POOR AND MORE CORRUPT. MAKE NO MISTAKE HE IS THE FACE OF KAIZER ZULU AND CORRUPTION.

  26. Comment:Hon Kambwili and ba Masebo, don’t overcelebrate. Hon Kalaba is still PF, at least for now. Knowing Hon. Kalaba as I do, I don’t think he can sink so low as to join NDC. My humble advice to Hon. Kalaba :remain focused. Refuse to be misled by political failures. If you have evidence of corruption please report to ACC so that the guilty ones are prosecuted and dealt with. Corruption is a cancer which can easily lead to the downfall of a nation if tolerated.

  27. ” I see the man with the hat winning the elections, and I see the opposition petitioning the elections; but the man with the hat will emerge victorious and eventually be sworn in. I also see THREE MINISTERS from the ruling Party rising against the president…but again he will emerge victorious because God is with him.”
    These were the words or the prophecy of a Nigerian man of God prior to the elections and they have come to pass. God bless Zambia and God bless ECL.

  30. If it’s a white man who has resigned we say “whites are principled people” but if a black man resigns ati “he has presidential ambitions” or ati “after what the President did for him! is this how he can thank him?”.Kalaba has given us reasons for his resignation, so no need to speculate

  32. Kambwili and Masebo are perfect bed-fellows who thrive on unproductive political controversies. As Masebo and Kambwili dine and “twist” their misana to celebrate the resignation of Harry Kalaba as Foreign Affairs Minister, Masebo should pause from her usual rhythmic sighs and pick up the courage to advise Kambwili to formerly resign from PF so as to take up his role as President of NDC in readiness for the 2021 Presidential Election I rest my case.

  33. Besides, the Zambian Constitution stipulates, in a civilized manner, that all persons (black, white & yellow) who were residents of Northern Rhodesia as at 24 hours on 23rd October 1964, are all legally qualified as Citizens of Zambia. Despite the fact that Sylvia is Zimbabwean by origin, she is 100% Zambian. In this regard, Kambwili can whisper to Sylvia to gracefully drop the name “MASEBO” and adopt her true maiden name. as a mark of respect to the true MASEBO CLAN.

Zambian farmers are not benefiting anything but just being used.We have no leader who can help farmers receive their money after selling their Produce to ZCF in 2016; Some farmers have not been paid their money by FRA after selling their maize in 2017. E.Voucher very useless program and farmers have been calling for the removal of Dora Siliya as Minister of Agriculture but nothing is being done.We have people in government who have no care.The entire PF leadership is not helpful.
