In October 2013, due to a disagreement between their club TP Mazembe and the Zambian Football Association over international call-ups, Kalaba and two other players (Nathan Sinkala and Stoppila Sunzu) were the subject of a Zambian arrest warrant. All three players later had their passports confiscated by Zambian immigration authorities, before being pardoned by the Zambian government.
He made his 100th international appearance against Mozambique national football team in June 2017 but was substituted in a 1-0 defeat and was in the opinion of national team manager Wedson Nyirenda too hasty to return to the dressing room rather than watch his teammates and needed to be disciplined. He was not chosen in the squads for the 2018 World Cup qualifying matches against Algeria national football team and Nigeria national football team in autumn 2017.
