Kalonzo termed Bajaber as a selfless leader who fought for the growth of Wiper Democratic Party and had the best plans for the party towards the 2022 general election.

“I am speechless as the Party leader since I have been close to Bajaber through our virtually meetings and he had big plans for the party, may his soul rest in peace,” revealed an evident pained Kalonzo.

Big blow
