2021 Presidential elections are going to be quite interesting, it is amazing how every candidate is confident and convinced they are the next leader of Zambia. The 5 times losing HH echoed that now it was time for his presidency in 2021. Chishimba Kambwili is another one on this bandwagon, once a part of PF with no complains, but now that he is accusing his former buddies corrupt which causes us to wonder why didn’t call it out when he was still a part of PF.
Now the Democratic Party president Harry Kalaba seems also confident 2021, he will be the one to be sworn in as republican president. There are claims amongst his followers he was prophesied to be the next leader come 2021 Presidential elections by a prominent prophet. The former foreign affairs minister made the remarks it is now his time during a press briefing at his party’s headquarters in Lusaka this afternoon. Today marks two years since Kalaba resigned his government position citing corruption and mismanagement. After a frosty relationship with the PF following his resignation, Kalaba was expelled from the ruling party last April.
After the expulsion, Kalaba also resigned as Bahati Constituency Member of parliament upon which he installed himself as Democratic Party president. Kalaba has been on a countrywide mobilisation campaign insisting that he is the next president of Zambia. He says the Democratic Party has enough support from all parts of the country to win the 2021 vote.
“There are those who say Harry Kalaba cannot win because he has not lost an election before but where is it written that unless you lose an election that is when you can become president, we are going to win the elections and mark my words today,” a confident Kalaba told journalists.
“Keep this video, the person you are looking at is the one that going to lift the bible next year as the seventh president of Zambia, he said. He added saying: “It’s a fact, it’s going to be that way.” Sending his supporters into applause. Kalaba says the PF had failed to improve the lives of Zambians and needed to be kicked out of office.
The 43-year-old says Zambians have accepted him as the only alternative. Those close to Kalaba say, the former minister draws part of his confidence to win the 2021 election from a prediction made by popular Malawian pastor Shepard Bushiri. According to Bushiri’s predication, Kalaba will win the 2021 presidential election.
