PF Kick Kalaba Out
The Patriotic Front has expelled Bahati Member of Parliament Harry Kalaba from the party, with immediate effect.
He has been expelled for 12 months, following his resignation as Foreign Affairs Minister. Secretary General Davies Mwila informed journalists he had been expelled for ‘gross misconduct’.
The disciplinary action was instigated by the Luapula Province PF committee that wrote to the Central Committee.
‘The Disciplinary Committee found Mr. Kalaba guilty on several counts:
1) Acting in a manner that is likely to bring the name of the Party into ridicule or contempt or disrepute. This is as per Regulation (29c) of the Patriotic Front Constitution.
2) Spreading false information or rumours which tend to injure the reputation of the Party, or any of its leaderships contrary to Regulation 29(h) of the Patriotic Front Constitution.
3) Committing any act which in the opinion of the Central Committee is not in the interest of the Party contrary to Regulation 29(o) of the Patriotic Front Constitution.’
Since his resignation he has been at the helm of the Democratic Party, where he intends to run as their Presidential candidate in the 2021 general elections.
