Harry Kalaba, President of Democratic Party has said that the time is coming when he will present evidence on the corruption allegations he is making against Zambia's President Edgar Lungu.

According to Harry Kalaba, it will be difficult for him to present evidence now because the Law Enforcement Agencies will not act on it. He said that law enforcement agencies are being intimidated by President Edgar Lungu, thus this is currently not possible for him to reveal the evidence.

He has also suggested Zambia's Head of State to be patient with him saying the evidence will be presented at the time he does not expect and no one will defend him. "Everyone knows, Jets are being procured, someone is getting money from oil being procured for this country, all that evidence is coming at the right time," Kalaba said, as reported by Lusaka Times.

He has also challenged President to tell the nation why he fired Emerine Kabanshi as Minister of Community Development and Social Welfare if it was not for corruption. On the other hand, Lungu President Lungu has challenged him to go to the anti-corruption and report the acts of corruption that he claims he saw in the ruling Patriotic Front Government.

Lungu has further said that President of Democratic Party must not use the issue of imaginary corruption to tarnish the image of the Party when everyone knows that he resigned from his position as Foreign Affairs Minister so that he could start pushing his Presidential ambitions.
