Harry Kalaba (born 12 June 1976) is a Zambian politician who served as Minister of Foreign Affairs of Zambia from March 2014[1] to January 2018 when he resigned from his role.[2] He is also Member of Parliament of Bahati constituency in Mansa, Luapula.


On 2 January 2018, Kalaba announced his resignation from his role as Foreign Minister in a Facebook post. He said his decision was prompted by the "swelling" levels of corruption "perpetrated by those who are expected to be the solution".[2]
