It’s God who stopped PF’s Bill 10 rubbish – Kalaba

 

By Agness Changala-Katongo

Harry Kalaba says God has stood in the way of the PF to have convened Parliament just to pass Bill 10.

And Kalaba said Health minister Dr Chitalu Chilufya should stay away from announcing COVID-19 results and instead concentrate on his court case.

Speaking with Daily Revelation on the announcement that 15 members of Parliament have tested positive to COVID 19, Kalaba the Democratic Party president said God does not want to deal with rubbish.

“Yes they had Bill 10 to convene Parliament but God has stood in their way. God doesn’t want to deal with rubbish,” Kalaba said.

He added that it was sad that two memebers of Parliament died due to greedy and selfishness.

“That’s why it’s sad we have lost Rodgers Mwewa (PF Mwansabombwe Member of Parliament) and Mwenya Mukonge (Independent member of Parliament for Lukashya Constituency) all because of greed and selfishness. Those two members of Parliament would not have died had Parliament been not summoned to come and play politics,” he said.

Kalaba said Parliament had now been degraded just to play politics insisting that there was no need to convene.

He said there were school children in non examination classes who were not able to go to school because of the situation the country was in, wondering why Parliament had to go ahead.

“From where I stand and as Democratic Party, I can tell you there was no need to have summoned Parliament just to consider committee Reports. We have lost lives as a result of negligence by the authorities,” Kalaba said.

He said there was no compelling reason because this time around, Parliament was all about considering the Committee Reports.

He said the country was in extra ordinary times yet typical of the PF government, they were politicizing everything.

Kalaba said even the announcement on the 15 memebers of Parliament was political because on one hand they were telling the nation of those infected and at the same time said there was no money to fight the pandemic.

He described the maneuvers as rubbish.

And Kalaba said peope are tired of watching Dr Chilufya giving updates instead of concentrating on his court cases.

“Dr Chitalu Chilufya should stay away from announcing COVID-19 results. We don’t need him to announce. Let him concentrate on his court cases. Right now as things stand, we want him to concentrate on his court cases so that he can exnorate himself. Let him leave the technocrats and permanent secretaries and other experts to do that job” Kalaba said.

He added that Dr Chilufya is making people lose interest in the COVID-19 results and making it a mockery due to his compromised moral standing in society.

“There is no moral standing. Let him give us space. We don’t want to be prejudicial but leave it to the technocrats. He is making it a mockery,” said Kalaba.

    Harry Kalaba STOP using God’s name in vain. You probably need to learn how to read the good book. Deuteronomy 5:10-11 But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands. “You must not misuse the name of the LORD your God. The LORD will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.

    People should be careful Harry Kalaba. He likes to use religion for political manipulation instead of talking about actual policies that can alleviate poverty or create jobs.

    He was in government in 2016 when a so-called Nigerian prophet known as Amata was brought to campaign for Lungu.

    If God was involved, did he also reveal himself to the PF? I hv a serious problem with invoking God’s name in politics. In fact as it happens, there’s a lot of prayer among politicians but where’s God’s love in their politics?

      Lusaka Businessman and Board Member of the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) Sipho Phiri was been dismissed from the board of IBA for allegedly alarming the national by posting a tweet on social media claiming that the figures being released by the Government on COVID-19 are not a true reflection of the reality as no testing was being done.
      Mr Phiri, whose Saturday 5th April 2020, the tweet was widely shared by many Zambias, including the opposition leader, Hakainde Hichilema who agreed with him., claimed that Zambia has no new COVID-19 cases because it had run out of test kits and was not testing any cases.
      “Don’t be misled by anyone… there are no new cases in Zambia because we haven’t been testing!! Corona is moving.. we just can’t record it.” he tweeted
      According to reports, Phiri appeared to have gone against a strong caution by IBA that condemned unethical reporting on the COVID-19 pandemic, where the institution called for objective, fair and responsible reporting on the pandemic.
      The report further said that his tweet on testing caused alarm as many tweeter users asked him to provide evidence for such an alarming tweet, especially that he is considered to be a senior member of society and many people reminded Mr. Phiri that the process surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic was being monitored by many international partners and stakeholders and could not be faked or hidden. Other people called for his arrest if he failed to provide evidence and substantiate his wild and alarming claims.
      But on Monday evening Mr. Phiri posted a message announcing his own dismissal from the IBA Board.
      “Well that must have been the shortest appointment in the history of the Independent Broadcasting Authority!” “Fired after 2 Board meetings..maybe I was a bit TOO INDEPENDENT “ he tweeted. Must say though there are some excellent Board members & great staff at IBA. I wish them all the best.”
      The IBA is responsible for regulating the broadcasting industry in Zambia, by ensuring the promotion of a pluralistic, ethical and diverse broadcasting industry.
      The functions of the IBA include among others, to grant, renew, suspend and cancel radio and television broadcast licenses.
