PF Copperbelt Youth Chairperson Nathan Chanda says Harry Kalaba thinks his contribution to the Nation can only be achieved if he is elected President of the Republic.
Mr Chanda said accused Mr Kalaba of criticizing President Edgar Lungu without giving any practical and tangible solutions to Zambian problems.
“All we hear is when ‘am President’ will do this, will do that. Those speaking the loudest of changing things, were even given an opportunity to serve in government before, but we have never seen what they achieved and done for majority citizenry,” he said.
Mr Chanda who is also Luanshay Mayor was reacting to Mr Kalaba who was on Radio Icengelo, where he just centered on attacking the government.
“The question is what he did for the people of Zambia when he saved as Foreign Affairs Minister. He wants to blame the government over things that are global in nature and affecting not only Zambia but other countries. This is high level of hypocrisy which should not be expected from individuals who claim to be leaders.
“Mr Kalaba has traveled the world with government resources as foreign affairs minister and we wonder what has blindfolded this man. We expect a lot from this man who is now behaving like a misguided missile. His ignorance has been exposed to the world as he should be the person to understand better the global changes and challenges,” he said.
He said that it doesn’t take one being Republican President to contribute to the development of the country.
Mr Chanda said that if Mr Kalaba failed as a minister he can’t succeed as President.
“Our humble advice is better he concretes on developmental issues in his constituency than enjoying the allowances his getting on a PF ticket his calling names today which made him to be where he is,” he said.
