MMD founding member Akashambatwa Mbikusita Lewanika says politicians of today should learn to put their differences aside and seek each other’s advice in times of need.

Meanwhile, a Pentecostal pastor in Senanga district of Western Province has prophesised that Bahati PF member of parliament Harry Kalaba is a rising leader who must be careful with those who want to join him.

The duo was speaking when Kalaba paid a courtesy call on them in Mongu and Senanga respectively.

“So this is a lesson that you people should learn, [in our days] despite our political differences, anyone of us could go to anyone of them as a parent,” said Akashambatwa.

And Kalaba said Akashambatwa was one of the people who inspired him.

“I am really honored to be hosted by this man. He is one of those that have really inspired me in what I do. This province has been defined by a lot of people and he is one of those,” Kalaba said.

Kalaba who also visited various churches in Mongu, Limulunga and Senanga districts appealed to the church to pray for the leaders.

“It is the responsibility of the body of Christ to always pray for the country. we have intercessors here who should be interceding for us leaders so that whatever we do should be the will of God and that we should be like John the Baptist and that Christ should increase in us as we decrease in ourselves. We are in extra ordinary times and extraordinary times, the loan wants to raise men and women,” he said.

And pastor Nicholas Tembo of the Pentecostal church in Senanga prophesised that Kalaba was a rising leader but warned him to be careful with those wanting to work with him.

“I can assure you that keep on fearing God at every stage because many are the times that people will pretend to love you but in reality they are not with you. I am seeing already [that] you are rising. And you have to be careful because when you begin to rise, a lot of things come your way, just be careful which type of people are coming along because sometimes it is not everything good which attracts good people. Sometimes good things attract bad people. May God give you wisdom. What I am seeing are reshuffles. It is also our prayer that if God willing, He can give you as our president according to his time. I t is a great revolution and we are praying that may God continue to use you,” Pastor Tembo said.

Kalaba also paid a courtesy call on Chief Nyumbu Kashingula at the new Mushuwa royal palace in Limulunga district.
