A backroom battle is raging over what role former Foreign Affairs minister Harry Kalaba should take up in the National Democratic Congress (NDC). Kalaba has had an invitation to cross to the NDC but remains hesitant given he wants to stick it out in the ruling Patriotic Front for the top position that President Edgar Lungu has no intention of relinquishing.
