PF cadre Maxwell Chongu was on Friday humiliated in a party WhatsApp group after a posting of his article claiming that Prophet Joshua Iginla’s message to President Edgar Lungu on the 2021 elections was instigated by foreign affairs minister Harry Kalaba.
Chongu, who calls himself a die-hard PF supporter, posted in the KOPALA for ECL WhatsApp group warning Kalaba that his ‘office’ would organize ‘real protests’ with coffins against him and not like those being done to force finance minister Felix Mutati out of office if he does not cut links with prophets.
“Good morning fellow countrymen and women, comrades from the Patriotic Front Party, all protocols observed. The holy bible clearly tells us to say and I quote! ‘Touch not my anointed and do no harm nor say evil about them’ end of quote. However the same holy bible also clearly warns about fake prophets and teachers of the law in the book of Mathews if am not mistaken and I quote! ‘Jesus said be careful of the teachers of the law and the Pharisees, they receive respective greetings, wear long lobes and seat on my fathers throne, practice what they preach but do not practice what they do’, end of quote. Surely Hon. Harry Kalaba needs to be extra careful with his association with one fake prophet, a conman who happens to be prophet Bushiri’s connection (chola boy) here in Zambia and resides in PHI. I am reliably informed by my officers that not so long ago, this same prophet called Hon Harry Kalaba for a meeting at his house and openly told him to say you will be the next President of Zambia come what may; just wait for 2021 and maintain a low profile, minimise talking and leave the rest to us,”
Chongu claimed in his posting.
“This is the same prophet that at some point swindled Mwansabombwe PF member of parliament out of a lot of money using the same strategy. Let me make mention that this so-called prophet has been the center of scandalous behavior hiding in the name of the church. Hon. Harry Kalaba, you may wish to know that at the age of 25, this same prophet was deported from Zambia and repatriated to Congo for his crookedness using the name of God, sleeping with married women. According to my records, it was his master fellow conman prophet Bushiri who necessitated his comeback to Zambia. In case people didn’t know, prophet Bushiri has formed a network full of fake miracles and prophecies duping innocent people worldwide out of huge sums of money and politicians have not been spared. It’s the same prophet Bushiri that has facilitated prophet Seer 1 to [get] back to South Africa after being deported from Zambia.”
He stated alleged that it was the Zambian prophets connected to Kalaba who influenced prophet Iginla to “force” President Lungu to step down.
“Now with their network full of magicians pretending to be prophets or real men of God they want to use their counterpart in Nigeria Bishop Ignla to force President Edgar Chagwa Lungu to step down. Let me warn the these fake magicians hiding under the pretext of prophets that as Patriotic Front party die-hard, I am always a step ahead of your plans and I will not [sit] back, relax with my arms folded waiting for you to execute your evil intentions but I will expose you and thwart all you plans because this is not a CHURCH but POLITICS,”
“I think its not too late for Hon. Harry Kalaba to come out clean on this one for the office of the Patriotic Front die-hard has got all the information, including records, when your prophet was deported from Zambia. I am very much aware of a scam to make Hon. Harry Kalaba PF president above all the republican President come 2021 by these so called prophets spearheaded by prophet Bushiri through his agent, a prophet currently residing in PHI Lusaka, but that won’t happen. These magicians who are failing to foresee real calamities like floods and other things that are affecting the world are busy stealing money from innocent people with their fake prophecies mainly targeted at politicians. Hon. Harry Kalaba, cut your association or you will have yourself to blame when you see real protests with coffins not was is happening over Mutati.”
But one of the members of the group told off Chongu, saying he and his ‘officers’ were just gossipers and rumour mongers hell-bent on tenting people’s reputations and fanning confusion while planting a seed of disunity in the PF.
“Hon Kalaba is among the best performing ministers we have in our Cabinet, he has handled the foreign ministry diligently and continues to represent our country and H.E. ECL well internationally. Why drag him into your gossip intelligence? If it’s not Ministers and MPs talking under a tree at Levy stadium in the night, it’s Ministers talking ill at a party or funeral or wherever. Frankly, we are tired of these your ‘officers’ giving all sorts of fake stories on our own leaders. The President did not mince his words when he warned of the ‘enemy within’,”
stated an unknown group member.
“How many people follow and respect the people u call fake prophets? Are you not offending the very people whose votes we shall come to ask in 2021? Are you helping PF grow with your outbursts? The only thing fake from where I am seated is your so-called intelligence and officers that report to you. Let us build our party and not help our enemies by destroying ourselves first.”
The response to Chongu’s statement got several reactions, with a Ms Robinson saying the members were tired of the PF cadre’s postings.
“Twanaka nafyo mwe. Let’s progress. This is retrogressive, very retrogressive,” she stated.
And a Mrs Phiri stated: “The other day, we were discussing CK, yesterday Mutati, today Kalaba. Hmmm I am afraid now it’s like we’re too much giving room to the opposition to talk about. Let’s unite…and wash our dirty linen indoors than giving opposition headlines. Thinking out loud.”
Prince Robert Mushili stated: “Indeed, why not seek private audidence with Hon. Kalaba before publicizing your findings; worse still you end your advice with intimidating threats. Where is the respect and honour for our leaders? This appalls me…is this the purpose of this group? Ba group admin, tufumyenimo mwe, this is actually demeaning and gives some of us no pride in this whole arrangement. Ask participants to censure some of their expressions.”
Tresford Mukuka: “No, no, no please, don’t attack ministers, MPs and genuine party members and officials.”
