The resignation of Honourable Harry Kalaba as Minister of foreign Affairs of the Republic of Zambia must surely shake the false foundation with which the PF Government has claimed it’s legitimacy.
This indeed is profound and a rare principled stand not seen in our Country 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.
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!
The decision to resign by Hon 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.
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!
