“UBZ president Mr Hector Sondo stated that his party has been following Hon Kalaba’s political life keenly and his party appreciates the exceptional leadership which Hon Kalaba has demonstrated throughout his time in government. He further stated that his party was convinced that Hon Kalaba is the right man to lead Zambia as President in 2021.
President Sondo urged Hon Kalaba to accept the DP invitation saying it is worth a sacrifice to take for his country,” according to DP spokesperson Judith Kabemba.
“It is time to put political and self interest aside and stand for a decision that will better our country. Besides, we all joined politics in order to contribute positively to national development. Therefore, when we see good leadership, we all need to render our support knowing that our time will also come,” said Sondo.
The duo said they had decided to join DP because “it is the only party that will provide true leadership, bring sustainable development and uphold the need to respect human rights that are being violated everyday”.
