Elections have been rigged- Sata

Headlines Elections have been rigged- Sata

Patriotic front leader, Michael Sata on Saturday morning stormed the Electoral Commission of Zambia election results center claiming Thursday’s presidential poll had been rigged.

Mr. Sata, who was visibly angry accused the ECZ of releasing inflated figures.

He alleged that constituencies in Eastern Province can not have 75 percent turnout when the poll has been characterised by apathy.

Mr. Sata said he was surprised that Acting President, Rupiah Banda is catching up with him in results released so far.

He also accused foreign journalists and international monitors of being biased because they have not portrayed the facts on the ground.

But ECZ Public Relations Manager, Chris Akufuna,said he could not comment on the matter because the PF leader had no facts.

Mr. Akufuna said the commission is just releasing results from constituencies where all parties have representatives.

  1. Well , kind of expected this didn’t we? Ghost voters all who have voted in favour of RB? Well, once someone is sworn in tomorrow, you can forget all about turning things around.

  2. i agree with sata the turn out has been around 30% across the country hence total votes could have been around 1300,000. The apathy will not end because of rigging. why voting when the will of people is not prevailing? Zambia! Peace be with you Zambia!

  3. I agree with Sata, why has the international media not covered our elections like they did for Zimbabwe and Kenya. With this kind of nosense, Zambia will not develop.

  4. I LIKE SATA’S LINE OF REASONING SOME FIGURES ARE JUST TOO MUCH IN CERTAIN VILLAGES, WHEN I WAS IN ZAMBIA I HAPPEN TO TOUR WESTERN PROVINCE RURAL AREAS AND I CANT IMAGINE 7000 PEOPLE VOTING IN LIUWA EAST OF KALABO, THE PLACE IS A PLAIN WITH VILLAGERS WHO LIVE APART WITH POOR LEVELS OF INTEREST IN POLITICS, 7000 VOTERS HELO VJ

  5. Yeah! I am enjoying this. The only candidate who had ‘MAMMOTH’ rallies at each and every place is NOT winning by a landslide. And now he is crying. Ooh! Poor old man. The boat has sunk, the old bath tab and even the one you used for filing nominations have all sunk too. The time of reckoning has come. Sata you are NOT a democrat, you are a dangerous dictator. How can you accept these results when you have NEVER been elected even in your own party. Don’t waste our time, just go home and cry. What was the cost of hiring your chopper? Wina alila manje. This is good!

  6. I know its painfull to lose an elction i sympathise with you PF supporters. MMD is popular in rural areas so what sata should do is to start compaigning in rural areas (all provinces) instead of lusaka and copperbelt. Eastern, Nort Western and Western voters have denied Sata’s chance of becoming the 4th Zambian president. Hard lucky cobra ukutangila tekufika you know bemba better than me. Try again. Fred Mmembe must be crying now and VJ is laughing.

  7. Rigging or no rigging, Sata and HH have just proved to be strategically and tactically deficient. They should have learnt from the 2006 elections. As for Sata, he thinks he is such a political geneous. Its time he allowed other people to take over from him. Three times of loses is enough. Get out of the way mdala!!

  8. You have lost. If you won they would have been faith. So now that you lose you theink they have rigged. Please pass the evidence to the high court. VJ is a zambian national so he has got a RIGHT to travel any where in Zambia hw wishes.Friends, this is way you get when you votes on tribal lines. Once again, CB,Lusaka, Southern, Northern and Luapula are not Zambia.

  9. it was clear from the word go that mmd will win. looks like mmd is worse than kaunda’s one party system and wamuyaya slogan. we also have to blame the oppotion for their greediness. if they had merged, things would have been different. but them all power hungry. hope in 2011 we shall see a change, unity and fairness.

  10. But Satas strongholds also has similar number of voters in the rural areas..and the voter turn out was almost 60% on the copperbelt.. no one complained

  11. -why does the ECZ put dull people in rural area who can take 2 days – just counting 5000 papers?
    -why should it always be MMD strongholds counted last?
    -why is it that MMD strongholds have always people who are lazy in -terms of work and simple arithmatics?
    -why should it be that MMD stronghold’s voters turnout ARE IN big percentages while the rest of the country has below average?

    I can go on and on but somebody needs to give me reasonable answers on the above plz.

    IT SEEMS I WILL NEVER VOTE AGAIN COZ ITS ALL POINTLESS.

  12. Ba Sata Ba Post can misled remember those headlines “Mwa mukola”. I thought it will be like in 1991 81% led by PF.

  14. Just shut up,Loud Mouth.Hold your Venom and leave VJ out of this.
    How can one man be so infamous about so-called rigging.
    He slowly turning him into a myth.
    The post built a cult around you and you actually started to believe it yourself.
    HH,make up with Saki and others then you will be considered favourably.Kozo

  15. That thief VJ again has done it again…but this time he started at a wrong time..no wonder PF wins the day

  16. 8 #i agree with you i understand why people end up becoming suiced guy’s me i am read to be used just for the seek of villager who do not know anything but just to sale zed for a packet of sugar

    for the international media that’s why mugabe dealt with them they are really annoying.
    it is not over until vj and the team are under 6fits my heart is bleeding.

    any way let us wait and see.

  17. International media have nothing to do with anything, we as Zambians have to fight our own battles, not the internatonal media. Those celebrating a rigged election show that they appreciate what MMD can do at all costs to stay in power. I mean where have you seen a single party staying in power for 18 years. C’mon people thats why we got rid of Kaunda in the first place!!! This is what we fought against in 1991 but here we are celebrating.

  18. HE IS NOW GETTING THE JITTERS BECAUSE DE-JAVU! ELECTIONS ARE NOT WON BY PARTY CARD CARRYING MEMBERS BUT INDEPENDENTS. YOU CAN VOTE FOR OR VOTE AGAINST. MOST PEOPLE VOTED AGAINST KAUNDA IN 1991. THE STRONGER THE FEELING AGAINST SOMEONE THE MORE PEOPLE COME OUT TO VOTE. APATHY MEANS THEY HAVE NOTHING TO CHOOSE EITHER WAY. GOING BY THE NUMBER OF DEFECTIONS IN ZAMBIAN POLITICS, THERE IS NO CLEAR BLUE WATER BETWEEN THESE PARTIES, BECAUSE WHAT ONE SAYS TODAY IN ONE PARTY WILL BE WRONG TOMORROW WHEN THEY CROSS OVER.

  19. all parties agreed on the modalities and fine details of the voting process. just because you are losing,you want to disturb the peace.
    you have your monitors in place at all these stations. they count all that put theur balot papers in the ballot box and then reconcile and verify at the end of the day. where is the oportunity for rigging. please.dont be a sore loser an d start making accusations unless you have solid proof. the mature thing is for you to compile your facts and present them in a petition. simple.not rabble rousing.just admit you failed to acknowledge the power of the villagers, who have turned out to be the trunk card for RB.sorry there will be no next time for you sata

  20. let me pose a question, why haven’t we witnessed a situation where mmd’s so called strongholds being announced first? VJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJ

  21. Leave VJ out of results not all zambians voted for Sata. Some voted for HH, others RB and yet others saw leadership in General GM

  22. WHEN I COME TO ZAMBIA I WILL SHOOT VJ HE LIKE TO DRINK AT PALMWOOD LODGE IN CHADLEIGH I WILL AMBUSH HIM, WATCH THIS SPACE, PF 2011.

  23. HH should realize one thing. Running a business is differnt from governing people. In business you deal with commodities that have no feelings which you can manupulate at will. In politics you deal with people full emotions and feelings not very easy to manupulate. So the fact that he could be successful in business does not translate into success in politics. In the meantime, forget about 2011.

  24. Imwe losing iliko bad but lets not lose our senses how can you accuse the international media of rigging? or not bringing out what is on the ground? what? they are not monitors but reporters! And by the way international media will not waste resources in a peaceful country like Zambia when neighbouring Congo is boiling.They will ask a resident part time correspondent to update them!

  25. One thing iv noticed in Zambia is that those who really fight to become president never make it..Just look at our history…Kapwepwe really wanted it but Kaunda got it.In 1991 FTJ was not even one of the founders of MMD but he scooped the seat.2001 LPM was just woken from his sleep.RB then retired from politics was appointed by Levy and now hes president.Therfore SATA and HH can never be presidents of Zambia because they really want it..Lastly my advice for you who want to become president is all you have to do is just chill and for sure someone will come and wake you up from slumber.Its plain and simple “BOLA PANSHI”..Thats the strategy im using!!

  26. Hmmm, it looks like RB will be our next president. Next it will be in house campaigns or should I say selection of the Vice President…. I wonder who RB has in mind?? Who’s going to continue as a cabinet and who’ll be replaced. Any idea???

  27. SATA is a wrong person to complain about rigging. He, with FTJ, enjoyed rigging when they were in power. This old thug thinks we have already forgotten. He must just retire from politics and start looking for money to pay for the chopper he was using. This guy will collapse because of credits. Athough i dont support RB he is a better evil

  28. It’s funny how shallow people sink,now you’re blaming the international media for reporting ”what is on the ground” .
    It seems PF likes this quoted statement,”what is on the ground” my a..
    Just accept that you’re only strong in urban areas,you need to go deeper,the ruling govt has advantage coz they run the whole country & touch all corners.

  29. True “Voter Rigger”.The levels of aparthy we have noticed in this election could mean one thing among many reasons. None of the candidates were appealing enough to the electorate.

  30. I kinder knew this was gonna happen.Elections in Zed r meaningless. The gvt in power owaz still n cheat,Wats tha point of havin election wen ya gonna cheat? MMD u r cheats

  31. Although theres room for rigging Sata cannot win in eastern province just as RB can’t in northern.If Sata can accept that less than half of the people who attended his rallies were not eligible voters then he should accept the results that he was not popular country wide.Somehow the POST ZAMBIA is to blame for their one sided role in reporting.Mulongoti first thing sort THE POST OUT. They have become big headed to the extent of forsakening some vital news other than politics. Shame!

  32. Please lets have proof of rigging and not just rumours.facts and not figments from ones fyamba intoxicated mind.
    how come one didnt hear of any problems when it seemed PF was leading.
    dont get me wrong, i voted for change as i believe that change is necessary as these mmd are to cosy with power. they needed to be changed even for the sake of change no matter who comes. even Ngondo if that was the case. but the villagers have spoken for us and dealt us another blow, just for a few packets of sugar and chitenge. such is our sad predicament.

  33. Vote Rigger walasa! your analysis is great. When a ruling party sees long lines it should get worried. then people want change! voters will not burn themselves in the sun if they feel ‘so,so.. could be beta’ or ‘they are all the same’. Apathy is always a booster to the ruling party!

  34. #42 you shod be very carefull. rigging or no rigging sata aleteka. what you should is start parking your katundu going back Southern Rhodesia or Nyasaland whichever will be nearer to you or even DRC if you don’t mind.

  35. compare the results from the remote corners of the country, they are havin more votes than urban areas with dense populations. I suggest central statistics provides the demograhical data for comparisons with the voters registration figures.

    I have been to most border towns and there are large numbers of illegals from neighbouring countries especially along the Angola/DRC border line. With the questionable credibility of some MMD leaders, one wonders if these political/economic refugees are not the reason such madness continues to exist during elections.

  36. What about those ballots that were already marked?? In Zambia we will quetly accept it and the riggers will be declared as winners. Yet we want the international media to do something about it when we as Zambians can fight for justice ourselves

  37. Sure ba ECZ this is how you can treat your fllow citizens?????? Our chief justice a shame to society no legal guidaince for the masses!!!! Swearing ceremony on a sunday so that no one can stop the process hahahahha!!! shame on you Chief Justice and ECZ.I trust God will restore the pride of Zambia

  38. I CARELESS ABOUT A COUNTRY WERE PEOPLE IN HIGH POSITIONS CLIMB THE LADDER THROUGH CORRUPTION AND RIGGING, I WILL NEVER RETURN TO SETTLE IN ZAMBIA, NAKULAUMFWAKOFYE, MWANYA MWACHULA ELYO KWACHA IS GOING DOWN I HEAR THERE IS RIOT IN CHIPATA COMPOUND AKWIPAYANENI BA MUMBWE. I WILL BE WATCH YOU ON CNN. LUPIYA BALANDA FOR PRESIDENT WHAT, IS NOT EVEN A MAVERIC OR CHARISMATIC ASTITUTE POLITICIAN, BUT GOD HAS A SENSE OF HUMOUR, LUPIYA FROM BEING LIFTEN AT THE FARM TO VICE PRESIDENT TO PRESIDENT MAMAMAMA, ANYWAY CHULENIPO, BA ZAMBIA.

  39. # 57 the President does not seat in parliament. no need for a sleeping bed. for you own information alot of us doze when the message is boring. ever heard of boring preachers? ask the christians they know beta!

  40. sata knows that mmd will rig the election, he was part of the riggers when he was in power.
    MMD are doing to him, what he did to others when he was in power,

  41. PF, you bunch of SORE LOSERS hahaha, had you won it, you morons would have been insulting us by now! Face it, your leader is a kaponya & well meaning Zambian’s can never take that geezer seriously…Accept the poll results & strategize for 2011, assuming Sata will still be breathing. MMD is more than an individual, on the contrary, if Sata kicks the bucket today, that’s the end of the PF pipedream…

  42. And you call this democracy? The people who dont pay tax choose a leader.

    there is no democracy in Zambia? I will never cast my vote again. I mean what is the point?

  43. Sata, too bad if you will lose. Just resign from active politics. I’ve resigned from Voting. Zambia is a one party state …PERIOD!!!

  44. i have been checking BBC and CNN for the last two days for news on our elections and there is ZERO coverage. We have so many YO BALLY zambians in ATLANTA and they cant even phone in and ask why there’s no news. Im going to write to BBC linoline.Bali tumpa!!! We are being robbed and they are quiet.Only african news is Congo.

  45. F%&* this election. It seem there is nothing we can do about. The f&&* MMD have rigged again. We have put our selves at risk. The Investors are now leaving

  46. There’s NO way MMD is always going to claim they win only from the rural areas! Marubbish fiiii MMMMMDDD!

  47. Please people….it is free and fair elections…DO NOT be sore LOSERS..If RB wins ..please accept defeat and move on..and leave PEACE in the Nation..

  48. #75, ba fred.. mwala chula nomba. the problem is you got a 100kmph tongue and 50kmph brain. better get a ticket form zambian airways to katwishi. we gonna get you!

  49. # 16. Waiyasa nondo muliso! Let sata learn democracy in his party, then he can lecture to us about the processes of a national election…he can’t preach the gospel with the left hand, and use the right hand to pass dirty money in form of bribes. Sata is never meant to be Zambian Presient. fate will continually prove that

  50. lekeni sata ateke…. these elections have have been rigged chachine…. chi nyama soya…taukwete ne nsoni surely we muntu.how possible is it that tha residing officer of munali constituency, had ballot papers oredy marked with his nem rb. how dare you. you myt as well just be like your grandaughter.

  51. I am supprised that you guys thought PF could win. You have so much “fake” as opposed to “faith”.

    PF, HP and UPND lost the day they all lodged in their nominations. I bet if it was a 2 horse race, the opposition were going to win. You’ve got to win with a landslide margin to dislodge MMD. I tell you.

    So all you guys swallow your pride and concede defeat. As for SATA, i have one word for him. RETIREMENT!

  52. Twakula pyangafye kufyalo fyaba sungu! After all pa ZED life yalikosa. Same politicians and same parties …bwafya! Down presser man seems to be winning, and our country will fall!

  53. kay # 8,
    VJ is very innocent.Your advocacy of killing him might just turn out to be the call on Sata, Lubinda, Nsanda, GBM and yourself.You are very vulnerable than you think the internet hidding you.VJ is just a strategist who has trained many people to think.He has never been to any polling center not even the marubbish PF talk of him being in Luapula and northern province.I’m more closer to VJ and talk to him more than you would believe.During this election we have have been analysing things before and during the voting period taking on his Lusaka home landline in the Roman township Zamtel exchange. Had he he been out, i wouldn’t have been receiving or reaching his home line.

  54. 53 WALASA MUDALA. THATS THE POINT. HEY PF GUYS WE TOLD YOU ON VOTING DAY WHEN IT WAS REPORTED THAT APARTHY HAD CHACTERISED LSK AND CB. YOU REMEMBER ON THIS BLOG HOW WE CELEBRATED THAT PIPO HAD NOT TURNED OUT IN LARGE NUMBERS? BLAME YOUR VOTERS WHO DIDN’T VOTE

  55. #74 YOU ARE RIGHT.KAPONYAS LETS GO ON BLOGGING.WHERE ARE YOU? A GRADE 4 CANT RULE MY DAUGHTER WHO IS IN GRADE 6,SHE IS MUCH MORE EDUCATED THAN SATA-N.

  56. Any body herd from HH? he can confirm if theres rigging or not.HH join the MMD team may be you stand a better chance of being a vice president and later achieve your dream.you become more popular if you saved in the govt. of the day. If there was no tribe differences surely you should have been our president .
    “i’m from eastern”

  57. Satas kaponya style outburst at Mulungushi is the kind of pres we saved ourselves from. i now beleive there is a god!

  58. You all have to ask yourself one question: is Zambia going to be worse off if RB continues for another three years? I think the answer is NO! Will Zambia be worse off under Sata? There is possibility that we will be turned into another Zimbabwe! Remember he has already said that there will be no presidential election in 2011!!

  59. Zambians, thank very much for voting MMD. I have been a diplomat for the past 12 years, thanks to MMD. I was so worried that we are we are losing. I dread the thought of coming back home. It just scares me. I am enjoying my life here, of course through Zambia tax payers money. My salary always comes from Zamiba on time, unlike those loser students in Russia. I also have a number of allowances like three cars, white people cleaning my house, 4 security guards, 2 druvers, 3 cell phones, 4 paid holidays, a 12 bedroom house, swimming pool, my own bank account with 1.3 million dollars, all my children are here with me, total 5 and receive free education, paid by Zed gov, total $70,000 per term.

  60. Yebo number 16, Waiyasa nondo muliso! Let sata learn democracy in his party, then he can lecture to us about the processes of a national election…he can’t preach the gospel with the left hand, and use the right hand to pass dirty money in form of bribes. Sata is never meant to be Zambian Presient. fate will continually prove that. Leadership comes from God

  61. nEXT TIME THERE ELECTIONS YOU SHOULD INPRISON ME PLEASE, I CAN’T HELP IT CAUSE THEY OFFER ME SO MUCH MONEY. NAKU ZIMBABWE THEY CALLED ME TO RIGG. AM THE MASTER MIND. HERE I WORKED EXTEREMLY HARD. FORGIVE ME ZAMBIANS. ELO BA RUPIAH HE’LL BE A SLEEPING PRESIDENT AND THATS THE PAINFULL PART ABOUT MY ASSISTANCE IN RIGGING. CATCH ME IN THE STATES I’LL BE ON HOLIDAY.

  62. Lets NOT get emotional here, we all know the status quo pa zed.Wait until the final results are announced then you can complain, I really cannot understand what the fuss here, PF is leading but the lead is sliming coz MMD stronholds are coming in. We all know PF is a town mouse, very poor showing in rural except Northern and Luapula, but come on people Zambia has nine provinces.You cannot rely on LSK and CB then two rural provinces, If PF losese tough luck, go form a coalition with UPND as long the two leaders continue to selfish they will not dislodge MMD period.

  63. Mwebantu kwana nangu tapasoswa 20 years with mmd, what are doing we need a change, too much of everything is bad. variate is the spice of life

  64. I am supprised that you guys thought PF could win. You have so much “fake” as opposed to “faith”.

    PF, HP and UPND lost the day they all lodged in their nominations. I bet if it was a 2 horse race, the opposition were going to win. You’ve got to win with a landslide margin to dislodge MMD. I tell you.

    So all you guys swallow your pride and concede defeat. As for SATA, i have one word for him. RETIREMENT.

  65. Bachi dilibula filya cha ledilibula abanankwe ninshi chali ichimuntu nacho,he’s got a test of his own medicine for the 2nd time around ha ha ha ha,am going to drink a few beers,by the time i come back i should find him off the radar,at least we are better off with slow thinker(RB) than a clown with rotten teeth.You should see the international media’s reports saying he’s a fan of Mugabe so Zambia would have been labelled an enemy of decency if were to be ruled by him. LOL

  66. The only reason I would come home, is to marry a new wife. I dont like my current wife, she looks too old for my status. I dont blame Banda for getting a sweetie young wife. By the way Banda will maintain my position, I am related to his wife and we run a company togeather (commercial farm).

  67. IT ALL STARTS IN YOUR OWN YARD..IF YOU WERE NOT VOTED BY ANY ONE TO BE THE LEADER, HOW WOULD YOU EXPECT TO BE VOTED FOR SUCH A BIG POST?SATANA JUST RESIGN…..PANKOLOKOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  68. I HATE TO DO THIS BUT HAVE TO DO IT! IN YOUR FACE THE PA BWATOOOOO, THE BOAT WON`T SAIL,NEXT TIME USE A TRUCK OR BUS MORE PRACTICAL CONSIDERING ZED IN LANDLOCKED. SORE LOSERS

  69. The boat has sunk and Nalikwanda is afloat. Stop comfusing people when you lose the elections. You won in the CB and LSK and that was not rigging, nonsence.

  70. By the way THE POST has nothing to appologise for. They will continue to haunt RB the same way they did LPM in the beginning. After all if Zambia is democracy then Mmembe is free to write what he wants.

  71. my people of zambia. i must confess i am rigging these elections. this is only because i need enough money to send my two little twins to school. without a corrupt mind like mine, they will never be anything i will achieve in this life of mine. your vote doesnt count as long as vernon is alive.

  72. HEY GUYS U REMEMBER HOW YESTADE SOME OVERZEALOUS PF CHARACTER IN THE DIASPORA WAS BOASTING THAT HE’S COMING BACK PA ZED TO TAKE UP SOME POST IN THE FOREIGN SERVICE, SOME ONE ELSE WAS ALSO SAYING THAT COME MONDAY HE’LL BE MOVING IN A PAJERO AND BODY GUARDS, WISHFUL THINKING. HEY IT WAS A DREAM, WAKE UP.. IT WAS A NICE DREAM

  73. The difference between the number of votes received by RB and Sata is so small that there can be no shortage of conspiracy theories. The truth is that politicians have failed to capture the imagination of Zambians and many couldn’t care less about who is president (hence the apathy). One day the people will be fed up of all this nonsense but that may be after our country is brought to its knees. Revolution is impossible until it becomes inevitable.

  74. Lon live MMD, we will rule for not less 50 years. Most of you PF will be dead by then, from heart attacks. Whoever causes trouble after the elections will be whipped by the army, inrespective of age or tribe.

  75. Its simple to read a poor mind.If the elections were rigged then HH rigged them in Southern,Sata rigged vthem in Luapula and to balance it all RB rigged them in Eastern.So shut up and wait for the final results.Sata is only known for causing trouble without reason.He thinks to be called king cobra is good.Its evil to be named after a snake mr satan

  76. Sata will never rule Zambia.It is just not his destiny;it was never meant to be.The opposition tried their best but it just wasn’t good enough.How many times is VJ,the self confessed drug dealer, going to retire and come back to this political monopoly that is MMD?What do these 70+ year old politicians like RB and MCS care about what happens to Zambia in the next,say, 20-30 years.They wouldnt care less because they simply won’t be around by that time.As for who is going to be the next ‘Moses’ in 2011, zambians should usher in a relatively younger leader who has no past connections with UNIP or MMD,not necessarily HH, but we’ll see how things pan out between now and then.

  77. mr sata must accept defeat though i know its hard to after all those mammoth rallies. you should have made sure that your cadres had voters cards. the post also played a row in misleading.you concerated in areas that you were already popular. too bad but its over never meant to be president.

  78. The parties were represented at all polling stations. The turnout in northern and Eastern were equally high.Sata rejected the use of electronics for election transmission and even calculators for adding, why then should he complain about delay. Last nite all the parties were called by the Returning Officer (Chief Justice) to show evidence of rigging so that they can stop the counting and Sata said all was well. what has changed? “Shimalila talangwa kumulomo” literally translated “dont look at the mouth of the mourner”

  79. The choice between Sata and RB is leaving me in a dillemma. Choosing between two evils. It’s hard for me to accept that either can become the president. But thanks be to God the Almighty that the next term is 3 years. Note that I am not saying ONLY because 3 years is long enough to destroy a country.
    Reasons – Sata is a hooligan.
    RB is a puppet surrounded by evil characters i.e. FTJ, VJ, add on you all know them.

  80. Imwe bantu RB is a qualified economist just be vigilant and hold him to his promises. the President is only as good as his people. Why is Mugabe bad because people have allowed it! why havent we risen against MMD because some people love them so they are not all that bad. Why did we rise against KK ? It was too much! so dont force everyone to think ‘yaba! its too much mwe!’

  81. haha zambians, ukukwangala 20yrs with MMD,is not so easy it’s time to change takwaba over ,over viva Sata, nangu bayamba ukukwibila.

  82. According to my sources, from OP its final, Banda has won by 28,000 votes. Amen. I am keeping my diplomatic position. Thank you Zambians again. stop by my house if you visit USA. I will look after you, just like how you have looked after me for the past 12 years.

  83. I cannot understand why results, which for the first time are being counted at polling stations, should take more than 48 hours to be announced in certain places. Are these places so remote that it takes more than a day for the presiding officers to get to the provincial centres or its VJ’s way of exciting the opposition before pulling the rug from under their feet?

    Remember the same strategy was deployed in Zimbabwe, and who was there to help? VJ!

  84. Sata you are a dog. You almost took the day. I will never forgive you. This election caused as a lot of money. Next time, please have a heart for others.

  85. #100 you got the point right,imagine the numbers for UPND and PF combined this game could have been over a long time.Rigging come on guys PF is town based and they have got the votes to show that.MMD is rural zed and now we are seeing the votes from the rural parts of zed.UPND have got the votes where they are popular the south.Anyways we only have three years to go plan well now and MMD will be out but as long as we continue to think that i can win it alone we will always divide the votes and they will always win.Come together PF and UPND full stop…

  86. TYPICAL SATA NO FACTS. THESE HAVE BEEN WELL RUN ELECTIONS. SATA IS A BAD LOOSER. WE WILL SEE WHERE HE WILL GO NOW. HE CAN ALWAYS WORK AS CHIEF CORDINATOR OF INSAKA’s IN NORTHERN PROVINCE.

    WHY TARGET THE EAT SATA HAS LOST MESERABLY IN SOUTHERN, WESTERN, NOPRTH WESTERN AND CENTRAL. HIS POPULARITY WAS A MMBE MANUFACTURED PENOMENON.

    VIVA DEMOCRACY ! DOWN WITH ENTHINICITY ! DOWM WITH THOSE WHO SPEND ALL THEIR TIME WORKING FOPR BEMBA DOMINATION. IOT HAS BEEN REJECTED

  87. Guyz, Villagers donot know anything about economy or but MMD is using them out of their ignorance to rule our country. All merger economic zones do not wants this nonsense called MMD. When are we going to be liberated from this inslavery? We have been colonised by this MMD always stealing votes on expense of the most poor people in the world. The abuse is done in our own country.

  88. I only have one word for Michael Chilufya Sata

    RETIRE MUDALA. GIVE IT UP.

    You tried and it didn’t work for you.

  89. #121
    “A president is only as good as his people”.
    What a timeless piece of wisdom. I have always thought so but could not find better words to say so.

    Thanks man(woman), whatever case may be!!!

  90. A real and thinking person will not just look at the figures as they come but also consider places, population density and the environment from where they come.

    DON’T JUST SUPORT COZ OF PERSONAL HATRED. BE REAL AND REASON

    YOUR FOREFATHERS STRUGGLED AND DIED FOR YOUR INDEPENDENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE SELFISH?
    THE KAPWEPWES WERE NOT….. JUST FOR YOU MY DEAR.

  91. Under what abnormal circumstances Sata’s victory is certain.Viva Sata Viva PF,warning;riggers will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    Pabwatoooooooooooooooooooooo!
    Mwamukoloooooooooooooooooooo!
    Twalubuka.

  94. HEY LET ME NOW DO WHAT I CAME HERE FOR,TUJOBEKO FIRST SO THAT I GRADUATE WITH A DISTINCTION, AT LEAST I AM ASSURED THAT I WILL COMPLETE MY COURSE WITH RB IN OFFICE, OTHERWISE WITH THE OUTBURSTS FROM SATA AND HIS TAIWAN CONNECTIONS ALL ZAMBIANS COULD HAVE BEEN DEPORTED OUT OF CHINA HAD THE SNAKE WON.. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SAD TO BE DEPORTED WHEN YOU ARE JUST REMAINING WITH 6 MONTHS TO GRADUATE. THANK YOU ZAMBIANS

  95. Where is Maestro HeHeHe Chief internet campaign strategist for Up and Down (UPND_. HH’s political career just got its final nail in the coffin. What’s his comment?

  96. Sata, Sorry Boss!! You have just lost clean game! Go back to the drawing board and carry out a postmoterm. Geee!! Your sponsors are now ghashing thir teeth for having ponsored a wrong chap. It looks like State House is not for yu mudaala!!

  97. Im not surprised aba bakabalwe the POOR FINISHERS (PF) this is always their song ati we rigged lyonse fye ati we rigged just regroup and continue swinging from trees or wherever just admit defeat u definitely couldn’t beat us with levy alive and u still cant beat us with him gone u are just useless and zambians have once again rejected u and when i say zambians i am not including some (PF) monkey cadres on this site because some of them havent been home ever since they saw a white man abroad, chwe chwe chwe chwe!!!!! Sata chapwa even ur party will now replace u you have cost them three elections!!!!

  98. GUYS AMA PF NABA TUCAYA CHECKMATE IYIBI BAD.ITS A CHESS GAME.WE FAILED TO MOBILISE OUR SUPPORTERS MU MA URBAN AREAS.ITS VERY PAINFUL HOW CAN WE LOSE IN KAPIRI AND KAFUE ? BA PRESIDO KING COBRA SATA LET US CONCEDE DEFEAT PEACEFULLY.WE LOST CLEAN GAME.THERE WAS NO RIGGING.

  99. the boat has failed again to reach the shores. free advice to sata he must retire from politics. RBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB vivaaaaaaaaaa

  100. Let Sata tell us how the rigging is done since he has done it before to the late Mazoka. He just used to hear that rigging exists now it happen to him. VJ is a man, i thing before he dies with the talent, someone should take over from him. The problem with Sata is that he never asked vj how this is done. If he new he would have disclosed.
    Too bad for Sata his hopes for plot 1 have now come to an end.

  101. Game over!!!

  102. FutureZed thanks for the clarification but was a SAD man was actually a good one. I was too fast to conclude that the man had become the ‘late’ thus …. was a SAD man suited my fantasy =).

  103. A population of 13 Million plus people, 700,000 people decide a leader. Bwafya pa Zambia. ????????. Something should be done

  104. it’over my brother. banda won. think twice kaponyas. this is the result of running a party on tribal lines. we knew the boat will be stuck in mud. it all happened.so think twice again for the comming elections in 2011.

  105. God save us, if it is true that there were malpractices in this election let the Lord reveal. What happened to the man in Munali who was caught with MMD stuffed ballot papers as was reported in the post and on the blog. Only God can save us if indeed there were malpractices Christians need to be in prayer otherwise if the malpractices were true, the devil will always still the blessings of Zambians any time he feels the standard of living for Zambians will change. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers in the heavenly realms but thank God for Jesus who has already disarmed all the principalities and powers and we are seated with him in the heavens.

  106. BA RB ba using napkins muma trousers ka? Kaya ni ba president ba shani. I wish him short live in state death should stuck on him as he gets into state house next week

  107. I saw no reason sata wasting time insulting HH. When in fact he should be advising the young man how to win the elections. we knew HH will not be a factor in these elections.there is no need to choose another leader in pf just join with HH. PF and UPND will taste the power.kaponyas

  108. To SATA and HH, we told you to work together. You never listened beacuse you are both naive and power angry.

    Sata and HH, these are self inflicted political wounds. Count your losses as you lick your wounds.

    You too naive politicians should have won by 60%.

    Anyhow thanks Mr King Cobra and HH for contributing to our democracy.

  109. 155, that’s another way of looking at it lol and I hope we can now move on and face reality instead of asking for re-counts based on imaginary or engineered rules only aimed at making a mockery of our young democracy. We still have hope for Zambia.

  110. The years are against sata.so join hands with HH. Remember HH has nothing to lose. he is rich. sata has alot of debt from the people he hired the chopper.

  111. And it was only yesterday when this same Sata was telling RB not only to concede defeat but also to hand over power to him. And today??? Yeah, good for you Sata. Go learn democracy (I mean elections) within PF first before you come to expose your rotten teeth singing about rigging. And it looks like some of the bloggers who were posting the ‘pabwato’ nonsense here were also ‘hired’ and have sunk with the boat. Now we can rest be assured that we share never have a dictator like you Sata in state house. It is a Tsunami for you and your kaponyas!!!

  112. Ifa, lelo nimalilo! Pabwatooo has sunk. my condolences to all PF (poor Finishers) kaponyas! Think twice, Kaponyas cant rule Zambia. Die hard with your dreams!!

  113. No one will take away Sata’s victory.
    Viva Sata
    Pabwatoooooooooooooooooo!
    Sata 4 presido
    Sata 4 state house
    Sata 4 Zambia
    We don’t want a sleepy presido who will only wake up when all of us have been privatised.Long live Sata.

  114. STOP CRYING BABY WOLF!
    SATA HAS ALWAYS SAID EASTERNERS HAVE UNIP POT HOLES IN THEIR HEADS, SURELY HE SHOULD BE LAST TO SEEK THEIR SOLACE.
    NORTHWESTERNERS…ARE BASIX KOLOKO?
    THE ONLY DEVELOPMENT YOU EARMARKED FOR WESTERN PROVINCE ARE TOILETS…BEACAUSE MWANAWASA DID NOT PROVIDE FOR THEM!
    PLEASE CALL OFF THE BLUFF OLD BALLY WHRE IS EVERYBODY ELSE WHILE YOU ARE DOING ALL THESE BUMP DANCES?
    ELECTIONS ARE ABOUT LOSERS AND WINNERS, ONE OF THE TWO, GO AND HAVE A CONVENTION MAN YOUR TIME IS UP
    NOW IS TIME TO WORK, ELECTION CIRCUS IS OVER TAH1

  115. The Rattled Snake with its red eyes has been politically killed.Its mouth has been left with useless venon flouthing.Democracy can only be enhanced and president on by Democracy.The Democratic peace theory say “Democracy does fight democracy” Sata and M’membe are anarchists who rose to destroy democracy with their narrow interest.Henceforth will take M’membe head on as a political opponent.He should prepare for rivalry in the private media from alternatives.All incentives he unfairly enjoyed in a competitive market from GRZ is abash.

  116. About two weeks ago, I mentioned that Sata will lose these elections. Why? Rural people value Fertliser more than tax relief. Apparently, most of them don’t pay tax for reasons of low income or sheer poor ZRA administration. Most rural people have no income to talk about. Therefore to see Sata’s face being paraded on a vehicle with “low tax, more money in the pockets” was an insult! RB is a genious! He reduced the price of fertiliser from +K200 000 to K50 000!!! That was a winner!
    Learn a lesson: Miners and Lusakites will not choose a leader even if they band up in millions. Worse if the spoilers like HH and GM are around. Rural Zambia is our SAVIOR. Diplomats must thank the villagers.

  117. haaaaaa….. rotten teeth lost. He can not even brush his teeth before going to his rallies to acompaned by kaponyas.wakeup.

  118. What do you expect from greedy politicians? 2006 if sata and hh had merged victory would have been theirs. They did not learn a lesson. By-Elections if they had emerged victory was gonna be theirs. I do not see hh or sata rule as @ any time. My advise for U magwam sata is retire and take care of your health so that you can see your grand children and their children, as for you hh pliz relocate and concentrate on your carrier else where. RB YOU ARE THE MAN! I AGREE WITH YOUR PLAN TO BRING IN TILYENJI, NJENKWA ETC INTO GOVT. BYE TETA, MBITA, MULONGOTI ETC. CHILUBA REVIEWED TUNNEL TO WIN POPULARITY, MWANAWASA REVIEWED CORRUPTION AND NOW RB…. WELL ICANT WAIT TO HEAR YOUR MSG INORDER TO GAIN PP

  119. ECZ AND YOUR SYSTEM–YOU HAVE FORCED A PRESIDENT ON US,WE DO NOT NEED RB FOR ZAMBIA AT LEAST MAGANDE WAS GOING TO BE BETTER.
    RB HAD NO PROGRAMME UNLESS IT STARTS NOW.
    IN THIS VIEW BRING IN A GOOD SYSTEM TO ENABLE ANYONE TO VOTE ANYWHERE AS LONG AS HE OR SHE HAS A VOTERS CARD.
    IF ANY ONE HAS RIGGED-REMEMBER OUR GOD IS NOT ASLEEP–YOU WILL SEE

  120. Viva rural Zambia! Viva! Viva Unzasu Leaders, Viva! Viva to all the Chiefs in 9 provinces, viva!! Viva keeping investers, viva! Viva to cheap fuel, viva! viva, cheap farming implements, viva!

    Okay, that’s it! There’s no winner. None vanguished, except the snake is banished to a small hole FOREVER. Zambians, lets move on. Keep HH. He is worthy keeping. If I was Banda I would appoint HH in my cabinet.

  121. In a Tight race like this …the Void balots papers will need to be closly loked at indeed now to determin how void they are …note that most of the voids came from PF’s strong holds

  122. I can now look for ubunga, cook, ubwali and smile. The cobra is slowly dying. Zambia is very educated, and we need educated people on the platform. Those kaponyas ran away from Jelita and Mulenga classes, now they think they can rule and revive our economy panse Ba Missed Calls!! We look now for a vibrant leader in 2 years to come. Let the sleeping cobra go to the dentist and also maybe to S. Africa for heart check up!! Imagine a constable to be the president!!!

  123. bane the only way to change gov is for the oppisition to join forces period. but because everyone wants to be president its chaos.

  124. vviiivvvvaaaa rb rb rb rb…..i told u chaps who where saying pabwato,lets hope u had saved some energy for crying.ni pa nkoloko

    SORRY ZAMBIA

  129. #182. There was no rigging. Don’t buy stories from Sata. Can’t you see that he even accused international observers of being bias. Will you buy that too? Well, this is Sata speaking. Did all the foreign reporters act unfairly? Imagine how arrogant and Sata is! Storming into an office instituted by the Laws of Zambia with the Justice seated there. Imagine the stubbornness! This is a mad man. Please take a breath, you’ll thank the people of Zambia for their choice.

    This is democracy. Don’t belittle those who win. The rigging story is useless. For me, I only surmise that Mr Sata had attempted to rig elections before and he knows the tricks..he is haunted by the evil past.

  133. IYE TATA!!!!!!!!! UMUNTU ALAFUMYA KWISA IMPIYA IYA CHOPPER MWEBANTU, ALL OF YOU WHO ATTENDED THOSE MAMMOTH RALLIES SHOULD COME TOGETHER AND BAIL OUT YOUR president.ULUSEEEEE

  134. You can not call yourself a SNAKE and expect to be blessed. Sata its time you considered changing your cursed name.

  135. CONGRATS RB! HOPE YOU WILL REMEMBER ME IN YOUR GOVERNMENT. YOU ARE MY MAN. LETS NOW DEAL WITH M’MEEMBE. ITS EIHTER YOU ARE WITH US OR YOU SUFFER THE CONQUENSES OF LOSING.

  136. #70 Shimaster and #88 Sweet Zed Concluder.
    Never dispise your origins. You are who you are, what you what you are because of where you come from. ‘Umushi libwelelo’ in one way or another. As much as you may not vote today, you can develope Mother Zambia by positive thinking and positive contribution. Lesa amipale no lupwa lwenu, engapala ne calo cesu even in the present situtation.

  137. i think pa zed we r not ready for democracy. pipo don’t value stuff that to dem comes free of charge that which is paid for not. we value our independence coz pipo paid wit their lives, and we’ll do anything to defend it coz we ve testmony of how much we had suffered it get. as for democracy, think its a myth until someone pays and the way i see it, its time pa zed pipo started thinking wther we are serious abt democracy. some pipo ‘ll do anything just to remain in grz to dem wat matters is they ve a job, they don’t give a damm abt the welfare of the masses, as long as they re comfortable, but that time is far spent. the judicially re also to blem coz they re not pro active, they re so

  138. Mmbe’s post is a threat to Zambia peace and love for each other. The Post promotes hatred amongst tribes. it promotes Bemba superiority. it pretends to be hammering tribalism, but by highlighting overblown situation instead funs hatred and hate amongst tribes.
    it is time the post is relegated to just a mouth piece of Bemba tribalist like Sata.

  139. God is the one who gives us leaders but these people are imposing themselves on us causing so much pain and suffering on us the innocent children of God. Our God believe me fellow bloggers is great and will continue striking them with death. meantime we are geared 4 chaos! PABWATO……!

  140. HH + Sata’s votes = 1 100 000!!! That is democracy! There was poor judgement from these two guys. They misled 1.1 million voters and spoiled their votes. They are guilty! Stone them! guilty! RB would have conceded defeat by yesterday had these guys come together just to grab power in the last 2 years. Then compete on different tickets in 2011. They just couldn’t agree.

    Sata stormed out of that meeting which was attended by KK. It is on record that Mr Sata is a very sick man! HH would have compromised, but Mr Sata stormed out. Does that ring a bell? You can see what the man is capable of.

  141. #185 u made me die of laughter.tell them..a grade 4 or standard 1 cant rule us.viva rb,the boat is history now,hh is hostory too.now nkoloko itiking’a

  142. #184, leave VOID alone, he has won more than Heritage party in this election, close to HH. Where is Maestro hhheehelle????????????????

    Ba MUNKOYO na imwe mwalubila kwisa? You can’t abandon these International/global duties yu commenced here. Please end your leave Of abscence. We need you here ASAP!

  143. Why is the toothless cobra spitting that the elections have been rigged? When he was leading, he was busy smoking a cigar. We don’t want kaponya language in schools. We Zedians will always go for the lesser evil. How can a democratic snake become a president when he never held any convention in his party and he kept on sucking all those mps who tried to reason with him? I am sure Ama Chinese will now introduce free kungfu classes to all the women and innocent zedians!!

  144. pabwatooooooo…..? make noise all the time shutup kaponyas. Try from now to regard other tribe as important as every one else.

  145. ifyo nshakabwelele mu zambia, anyway sorry Zambia tatufwaya ku cinja, we don’t learn from minstake lwenu, nauleumfwa bwino kumangalande akalanda kuli iwe

  146. I PITY ABOUT A COUNTRY WERE PEOPLE IN HIGH POSITIONS CLIMB THE LADDER THROUGH CORRUPTION AND RIGGING, I WILL NEVER RETURN TO SETTLE IN ZAMBIA, NAKULAUMFWAKOFYE, MWANYA MWACHULA ELYO KWACHA IS GOING DOWN. WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLUMBER? ARISE! ARISE! ARISE

  147. #202. Zambia is for all Zambians: Elections should not divide us. Keep you infectiuos xenophobic hogwash to yourself!

  148. dem bootlickers ‘ll be dem first to flee de country wen a call is made to pay 4 democracy!
    wen solo took over zed, dem cowards were no where to be seen, yet they had the guts to question dad abt the methods of interogations. and guess wat, he asked dem where were they wen dat was happening coz dem courts were closed wit no judge insight!

  149. mubobo # 195,

    Those are men of valor and true patriot who saw the danger of entrusting this nation to an illiterate, hatiful and manipulative Sata.I will petition RB to bring them on board.Exactly 44 years after independence, you don’t need some who is an educated to preside over a country in complex times.RB is a Qualified Economist, Business Executive and Zambian’s tested Top Diplomat world leaders will easily convesrse with instead of taking insults on the international stage.We need someone who can see through the mind of Economic hitmen.Zambia will not eat insults.

  150. Tick tock, tick tock… The hour comes round every 60 minutes. The boat can’t sail on dry land. MMD iwina pa last minute!

  151. BANE HOW COME RESULTS FROM AS FAR AS CHIENGI AND KAPUTA(BORDER AREAS) ARE IN THEN KASENANGA RESULTS WITHIN CHIPATA ARE NOT OUT-I WAS NOT SUSPICIOUS BUT NOW I’AM TOO TOO SUSPICIOUS—VJ ALA YOU SHOULD LEAVE US ALSO TO CHOOSE NOT YOU ALONE EVERY TIME

  152. but u pf chaps are just dull! ine naledabwa sana, how can u go to chembe with your ‘pabwatooooooooo’ slogans when the pipo there have a brand new bridge? listen chaps, ine kwesu kulya ku mansa we don’t use a boat to cross a river if there’s a bridge across the river! ni banda uyu mwalemumfwafye lelo apika nsima!!!!!!!!!!

  153. Quite frankly, the rate at which we are going in Zed, we will end up being led by a DOG. Honestly, where has RB been since 1991?What advancements can he bring to our country.This is the second time that Zambians are voting for someone who was initially woken up from deep slumber.The choices we make will surely come back to haunt us.

  154. back to mulongoti and mpombo politicks. or now it will be wako ni wako from family tree? good luck zambia. fellow zambians refrain from riots it’s not worth anybody’s blood. letus just wait for the promises to be fullfilled.

  155. Lwenu, let’s hope insala, ubulofwa, etc…, fikaleka na Hiv, ukufula mukufwya ukufwa uku suvivor, ohhh weeeh, naumfwa noluse, be like Americans Viva Ubama. Nomba imwe mwalekesha Sata and H.H. umopa aba ngalimilubula, nomba hooooooo! tuka mona fertilizer mwapoke ngaikakonkanypo. Like dis tamwakakule bamambala, kumushi!

  156. I have to confess. I am the biggest apathetic voter. I haven’t voted since the 80s. And surprise! I voted for one Michael Chilufya Sata in Kabwata! He has not paid me back yet so I can’t spend my vote.

  157. It unfortunate that ba Sata has to tire-down the inaguration speech.
    last nite he was dreaming announcing cabnet appointment. When he woke up this morning reality stroke!

    That is life… we all have dreams…and when you’re 70, you realise that I can only do this much.

  158. When Sata was winning in CB and Lusaka etc, there was no rigging
    but now that he is losing there is rigging. Lets be realistic as
    Zambians, even the poor villagers’ votes do count. These elections
    have been free and fair, the winner takes it all.

  159. #215 andn #216
    Time will bring you back home. In the mean time see how you can positively think of your home country and contribute where possibly can even if you may not like the choice of your president.
    Ukukotela kwanbene kwaba ne mitabo tabo…all the best for now bane.

  160. I HOPE MY RELATIVES FROM THE VILLGE WILL COME TO BOTHER ME ABOUT FRETILIZER COZ I STRUGGLE TO GET MONEY.
    ANYWAY FOR THEM ITS FOR FREE FROM RB.

  161. Home is home bane, even us who are outside should feel for our home country. All our relatives, friends, impushi, inkonko, bapushi are at home. One day we will come back and we will be like a phiri an bwela!! But we need to find a good leader who sho provide employment opprotunities also back home. I miss akabwali bane!!

  162. #231, honestly cant you see that we need some one fresh , not the candidates from this group this time around? none of the four are presidential material. But what do we do in the mean time? they say “a lion sometimes can eat green grass when there is no meat” its a saying somewhere I can remember….

  163. HEY DID YOU KNOW THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE AT THE RALLIES WERE EITHER CHILDREN, UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE OR HOMELESS AND HUNGRY. FREE FOOD AND CLOTH ALWAYS ATTRACTIVE. OTHERS WENT TO WATCH THE CHOPPERS AND THE EXPENSIVE 4X4s IN CONVOYS. LEARN A LESSON FROM THIS. USE DOOR TO DOOR CAMPAIGNING (VJ STYLE) IT IS MORE EFFECTIVE.

  164. People in rural areas bali nanzelu kuchila bankala mu town. Look at the way they vote!!

    Our cities are full of Kaponyas!! Headless chickens!!!

  165. but me like Thandiwe too much! yes uyu wine mukazi wa banda, me luv u thandiwe too much thats why i voted 4 RB so maybe VJ can organize 4 me!guys wats yo advice?Hey any news about Joe the Plumber?I asked someone 2 orgainize a job 4 sata as one of Joe the plumber’s backing vocalists.Did u read yahoo 2de? It was reported that Joe the plumber has become a country music star overnight! Anyone here who has listened to sata’s voice wuld agree wit me that Sata’s voice sounds like some of those country music legends so thats why i asked someone 2 organize 4 sata somethin like this.Is it tru that VJ is behind Joe the plumber’s sucess?????pls help!!!!!!!!

  166. Dzikomo kwambili uko kum’mawa, Kumadzulo naukonso kum’poto kwa Zambia potilola kuti titsogolere dziko lino. Dzikomo pamavoti omwe mwapasa Aba a bambo Lupiya Bwezani Banda. Ndine okondwa ndipo aSata tizabathandiza kubweza kaloba makamaka pankhani ya chopper yomwe anatenga pankhongole.

    Chalu chinzuna ichi bati?

  167. How voters were registered for the Elections? The other day I might have heard that roughly around 1.6 Million people registered. Do those figures matcvh up with the actual number of votes cast? So from the totals we have been given it’s well over 1.7 Million votes is it why Teta is confident of around 60,000 win margin?

  168. wot up its the King i hop ya all going to some in area coz im planning to do a colabo in ya counrty n i dont really dont wanna get stuck in cheap politics.

  169. People i think am getting confussed. i post one thing and oppose my self in another posting. I think i ve to go to a mental hospital.

  170. its final,chaps from rural areas have employed,rb,teta,saki,ben mwila,vj,nawakwi,christon,siwulapwa,nevers mumba, and the rest,are these the learders we need in zambia,no commrades we can do better than having rb in power,its painfull for aperson like me coz am gonna feel the effects of the economy.there’s tension in lsk rite nw.

  171. Its time for snake and others to go to live in the rural areas. You know those Missed calls “Kaponyas” are lazy and they don’t even know what rural hardship mean. Zambia is not only about towns. What did the cobra promise on agriculture inputs? The most intelligent people are in rural areas. Most Zambians in towns are mixed blood not pure Zambians. Half-Nigerian, Half Zambian, Half- Congolese, half Zambian, half Zimbabwean, Half Zambian, Half Senegalese, Half Zambian, including half mwenyes!! But many pure Zambians are in rural, that is why they voted wisely!!

  172. Koma mwahita bwino kusankha mukulu mphuno. A Sata asadandaule pankhani ya nkhongole, tizayesa kuthandiza kubweza. eeee RB mwazina yake BWEZANI

  173. MMD GUYS YOU’LL REGRET THE CHOICE YOU’VE MADE BELIEVE ME. I DON’T MEAN TO CURSE BUT ITS JUST PLAIN TRUTH. GUYS I’LL REMIND YOU OF WHAT AM SAYING ON THIS SAME FORUM.

    AND I’LL BE THERE TO LAUGH!! OH YES LAUGH AND I’LL LAUGH VERY HARD AND ALL Y’ALL MMD PEOPLE. HH OR SATA ARE THE BEST PEOPLE TO LEAD ZAMBIA.

    SALARIES FOR MINISTERS WILL INCREASE NEXT WEEK AND UNZA WILL CLOSE IN THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER.

    GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

  174. Vinthu Vena mwebanthu! I like that, you remind me of my village! Yai vote yuoneka monga yesebenza kwa akulu Mphuno. Tupempha tyala kuti nimphuno yeka yati ibe kula, mutu osakule yai. Zikomo monse povota pankholoko. A Sata tibakulungile thobwa, ankhazike mtima pansi.

  175. Sata waona manje wayamba kulila. The crowds you attracted across the country decieved you. The Post decieved you. You pulled out of the alliance with UPND because you were over confident.If only..(sure) you had formed an alliance with UPND, you could have been president.Dont be too hungry for power.Unfortunately this was your last HOPE. Rest in PEACE.

  176. if you know that the elections were rigged, dont dare get into office!!! Cheating is a sin, and whatever you try to do wont prosper!!!

  177. No tension Pliz why did sata wait until he had lost before saying there was rigging? its because he was leading! now that he is not leading rigging comes in? let him justify not just shouting. anyone can say what he is saying. thats why even people abroad claim rigging when they are not in Zambia.

  178. I propose college votes in our next constitution. There is noway, rural people who don’t pay tax, don’t understand issues can be deciding for us

  179. Mr.Sata go home it is over,Mr.HH you go home too you gave the election away you both are to retire and leave the seats to others.God nite and happy retirement.

  180. u chaps abroad,can u shut up,becoz u dnt contribute anything to this country and u did nt vote,if war broke up u wont be there to defend,its us who will sufer.keep yo comments our there ku fyalo were u treated like scrap,u dnt knw our hardships,

  181. just remembering…all that Tonga vs Bemba hegemony…what has it come to ha! now people are back to their senses lets talk….one Zambia one Nation!

  182. The Problem with Sata just like most people abroad they read the Post too much. Sata read that paper everyday and started believing the lies that he was winning. Voters and people can see beyond the post. The MMD did and chose their own candidate who is not going to write off debts for companies in which Fred has a stake.

  183. I was walking along bwinjimfumu road at 1700hrs today and saw a lot of mmd cadres dancing at their campaign centre. What that means i dont know . May be its signalling their victory. Yaba pf and satamania is now the late. Its over over. This should be lesson enough to both sata and POST that no amount of negative reports would change people decision.

  184. The boat has indeed sunk, in it – a king cobra, head crushed. The cobra is dead, long live the cobra. Democracy has survived.

  185. Post News paper is the only paper one has to pay to read on the net. Lets face facts, if Sata was to win the elections, how was he to rule with the majority in opposition? How was he going to change policies that have been going on for at least two terms? How was he going to single handedly clean the mess in the government with the minority? I would advise the opposition next time to team up and make one in order to win. Secondly, PF, was never popular in the rural areas, just as the post does not so much report on rural areas. They wasted their space and time criticising akulu mphuno!!!Wake up guys!!

  186. sata will never be a president of zambia. the blood of nkumbula, paul tembo, kaunda, penza etc is on his head together with ka chiluba.

  187. whether sata wins, HH, RB or Miyanda, I dont think I ‘m gonna feel the impact. But come 2011, MMD should beat it!!! Whats the point of having so many parties when all the people that become president are from MMD? Its high time we changed! Am pretty sure if I also joined MMD today, I ‘d be chosen president, even though I dont know much about politics. blyat suchka!!!!

  188. Fromn now onwards I have STOPPED rendering any sort of financial help to my pipo in the village. They seem not to understand that even the little that I manage to sent them is so VERY HARD earned due to much of my pay going to Mwadya Mweka Daddy through the HIGH tax Im charged EVERY month.

    I am so upset cuz I was thinking my vote would make me choose someone tht was going to at least do me justice by reduce the EVIL tax I am being charged. BUT, thanks to our village counterparts, I still have to LIVE with the HIGH taxes. Goooosh!

    NO MORE FINANCIAL AID TO THE VILLAGE; bazazitandiza na vitenge na fertilizer from RBB from now on. Maybe they will come to learn what it means to be under MMD.

  189. #157 M Obama: how many votes decided the US elections in 2004? I think you don’t deserve that name. check other countries and you will find that it is normal in a competive democracy to win even by 1 vote especially in a simple majority

  190. Totals (144/150 Constituencies)

    PF 679,082 39%
    MMD 688,190 40%
    UPND 323,409 19%
    HP 12,640 1%
    Void 21,725 1%
    Percentage of results verified: 95%

    This is really good, to see Sata lose the elections again. We will now see what the POST will do. By the way, Isaac Chisuzi assured Zambians that peace will prevail and that they had the mandate to ensure that we continued to enjoy peace. VIVA RB!!!!

  191. The elections could have been rigged basing on the facts on the ground, Mulwita at civic centre for exmple, cases being investigate at Masaiti and Mpongwe police stations to name but a few. Each and every vote should be verified in all provinces. The opposition and other stakeholders should first start with the spoiled ballot papers and make sure that this was not done in bad faith just to favour an individual candidate.

  192. Mr Sata, you are too aggressive and tend to throw away support. How do you expect to win elections quarelling with your MP’s and Counselors who are supposed to be your campaign agents?
    You are too much of a self centered person and often underate others.Politics are based on persuation and numbers.Some of your statements during camapaigns where unrealistic and scaring. It’s too late, if you were a young man i would have advised you to change your campaign strategies for future elections. HARD LUCK COBRA

  193. Im happy that MMD has taking the lead this is good news very, very, very good new
    sata you deceive to lose ulimulwele just order yourself a coffin you are bout to kick the bucket backwards who knows!! just kick it im tired of you sata

  194. And so again! The villagers have given us a president?????? But zoona, we are poor. Just ka fertilizer makes us lose our rights to decide. Our people should be taught about how to vote also how can Void beat HP like that? I hope the so called void were not meant for Sata! Another rigging gimmick!!!!!! Now we have a sugar daddy in State House, yaba abena Zambia zoonaaaaaaaaaa!!!

  195. PF HAD ITS BEST PERFORMANCE AFTER LOSING ELECTIONS 3 TIMES.SATA SHOULDNT HAVE WALKED OUT OFF THOSE NEGOTIATIONS WITH HH.HE NEEDED THE VOTES IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE TO WIN BECAUSE THOSE WERE GURANTEED VOTES FOR HH.SOUTHERN PROVINCE STOPED VOTING FOR MMD IN 1996

  196. The post deceived sata. I remember reading something like satamania in southern and western province, wamona Fred Mmembe(The post) ubufi bulaya nokubwela. Fred Mmembe and your reporters mwalikusha Sata umutwe. Filya tabachita.

  197. SATA NEEDS HH TO WIN ELECTIONS AGAINST MMD,THE POST SHOULD NOT LIE TO HIM,HH AND SATA NEED EACH OTHER.LET THEM START WORKING TOGETHER NOW.SATA WILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT WITHOUT HH

  198. I dont care if the elections were rigged! In fact I am so happy! Sata cant rule us guys. I am to drink castle now…na mahule mbwe!…2011 its Hule for Presido! Gwendolyn where are u!! LOL!

  199. awe mwandini chashupafye coz we really wanted change watever the outcome at least we know its wat God wants wetha rigging or no rigging umutimaffye ukukalipa twanaka naimwe ba mmd

  200. I just pulled out my calculator, the Total number of voters registered were 3,643,628. The number of Voters who cast there vote was 1,670, 709.

    At 1500 today results from 137 constituencies the total number of voters plus the spoilt ballots or rejected (Void) was 1,670,709, Can the number go higher?
    If 2,200,000 million ballot papers were printed, and 600,000 suplus were on earth is RB getting voters from?

  201. As for you M’embe, I’m one of the people who have respected your newspaper over the years. However, your targeting of RB in preference to Sata made you lose focus. Your misinformation made the campaigns difficult to follow. Please in future, dont put your personal interests ahead of public interests. I would have voted for Sata but because of your biased publicity against RB, I changed my mind and voted for RB just to prove that you are just a newspaper to inform the public and not to influence them to vote for your preferred candidate. To say the least, you did not only embarass but journalist fraternity in Zambia. No wonder your preferred candidate has miserably lost. SHAME.

  202. mmd victory will be enjoyed by them and thier children outside zambia.for the rural dwelers,u wont see helicopters till 2011,never to vote again,never again,first lady is my agement married to some wrinkled chaps called nyama soya sorrounded by thieves

  203. sata show us eveidence there was rigging ba mudala you just did not dogroundwork esp in rural areas goes to show you neva learnt a lesson in 2006 to intesnfy campgins in rural areas. hey but dont cry yet the results are still trickling in.

  204. THE POST WAS ONLY EFFECTIVE IN LUSAKA ,BECAUSE THEY STOPPED COVERING HHS MAMOTH RALLIES,AND INSTEAD THEY DEDICATED THEIR PAPER TO ZAMBIANS ABOUT SATAS POPULARITY WHICH IS NOT REFLECTED IN RESULTS FROM WESTERN,PART OF CENTRAL,NORTH WESTERN AND SOUTHERN

  205. I have to agree with Sata this time. It is inconceivable that areas that have only 5000 votes take two days to count and those that have over 20000 are counted in a few hours. Democracy is dead in Zambia. However Sata and HH made it much easier for MMD to alter the results by not going into a pact. This is possibly the end of King Cobra. We usher in a worse breed of plunderers in RB and his sick cartel.

  206. MMD guys truly know how to rigg no doubt about it, but its quiet sad that we r going to have such corrupt pipo ruling our country, the likes of VJ….God help our nation

  207. 1 WE ONLY KNOW MMD HERE
    2 MY VOTE IS EQUAL TO THE PERSON IN AVONDALE
    3 MMD IS CONSTRUCTING THE SENANGA SHANGOMBO
    ROAD,HIGH SCHOOL,GENERAL HOSPITAL,RENOVATED SCHOOL
    SUBSIDISED FERTILISERS,MORE TEACHERS IN BASIC SCHOOLS ,

    THESE THINGS WERE NOT DONE WHEN SATA WAS IN MMD.

    YOU PEOPLE IN LUSAKA DONT FORCE US TO VOTE INTO OFFICE SOMEONE WHO WILL BUILD A FLYOVER BRIDGE IN LUSAKA. DEVELOPMENT THERE IS DEFINED DIFFERENTLY FROM HERE

    CWE CWE CWE CWE CWE CWE

  208. Back to Basics I suggest that political parties once there candidate fails to win elections they should look for someone else to stand on there ticket or give them a not more than 2 tryies. Sata has had 3 they should look else where for leadership (PF that is) the same with UPND you can not just be putting forward the same chaps and say there is democracy in the country and the parties.
    We can not as a nation be short of leaders if i was of edge i would be putting my name forward and so would a lot of people on this blog. We all have something to offer but no opportunities especially that people want to stand on party tickets until they are in there death Bed ???

  209. Why can’t sata accept defeat gracefully? When he thought he was leading, he didn’t cry foul. now that he is clearly losing he wants to point fingers. its a no-win situation with this kaponya

  210. This is a great day pontiac or pontif or whatever his name has gone to hung himself.

    “Pride comes before a fall”

    “He who laughs last laughs best.”

    finally signing out – Good bye guys. please have elections in PF first before you ask the country to vote for you.

  211. It is not possible to have more than 21K spoiled ballot papers. You will find that the spoiled ballot papers were in favour of the opposition and not RB. This is where the rigging orignates. Can somebody prove me wrong?

  212. results for chisamba are up to nw not yet in why?pa chisamba pepi sana. hw come results 4 mwandi and kaputa hav been received?

  213. Anyone that celebrate MMD victory is either corrupt or does not pay tax HEAVILY the way most of us Zedians on the ground do. MMd victory just spell out increased Tax(reduced income for average person like myself), increased salaries for constitutional office holders(MMD), more and M O R E corruption.

    Maiweeeeeeeeeeee. How can we allow these people to continue to subject us to their cruelty, Teta, Mulongoti, VJ, Chital, C H L U B A, Nevers, Cosmo, Nawakwi etc. God Help us.

    I would have settled for HH or Sata.

    Amazing what fertilizer sugar and chitenge can get you into mwe! Maybe I should just find means to leave this country to one where my services will be more appreciated.

  214. HEY GUYS FORMULA ONE FINAL QUALIFYING LIVE FROM BRAZIL ABOUT TO START. POPI ARE YOU THERE MY FRIEND, SEE HOW MASSA WILL EDGE OUT HAMILTON, MASSA FOR POLE POSITION.. GUESS WAT VJ IS IN THE STANDS INVITED BY THE FERRARI PRESIDENT.. VIVA MAN UTD..

  215. The election is too close to call, zambians deserve a run off between sata and RB for the sake of peace and stability.
    RB can’t claim a majority endorse from zambians…Do not object becoz of money or constitutional legality..we deserve a free and fair elections in zambia…
    It is clear whats zambians want but MMD during the night cooked the polls to favor RB…

  216. 328 Princess, London keep your mouth shut if u have nothing to say ok,enjoy our zed taxes money,dnt say anything about what u dnt knw,u being in london shows or werever u shows that u not zambian anymore

  217. #322 ELDER STATESMAN

    SHANGOMBO IS NOT A CLUSTER OF RAMSHACKLES HOUSING 10,000 PEOPLE WITHIN THE RADIUS OF 3 SQUARE KM LIKE CHIPATA COMPOUND.

    THATS WHY PF AND HH MISSED IT BECAUSE TO START WITH THEY DO NOT KNOW THE RADII,TERRAIN,PEOPLE DISTRIBUTION ETC.

    LET PF GO FOR A CONVENTION. IT WAS GOING TO BE AN INSULT TO WISE SHANGOMBA RESIDENTS TO HAVE SATA IN PLOT ONE. FOR THE PAST 9 YEARS WHO ELECTED HIM AS PF PRESIDNT. YOU TOWN DWELLERS ARE A DISGRACE

    VIVA DEMOCRACY VIVA RB

  218. Sata and HH are dull leaders they should have learned from the past election. Zambians relax go home and sleep suckers.

  219. A RUN OFF IS NEEDED there is a reason why we have a simple majority

    Hamilton for pole in Brazil to stop all your vudo tricks

    Chelsea still 5 up

    its a lovely day

    ok Hamilton in top five who cares it will still mean he has won but the boy wont settle for second best.

  220. The Southern African Development Community (SADC) has declared Zambia’s elections transparent and free as main opposition leader Michael Sata maintains a slight lead over acting President Rupiah Banda. Leader of the SADC’s electoral observer mission to Zambia, John Kanene, says the presidential elections were well managed and conducted in a credible, peaceful way. SABC News

  221. People of Shangombo decide where this election goes and yet they have no idea what drives the economy or what are good or bad economic policies. They have made us suffer for the past 2 years

  222. #342, kaponya!! firstly maybe if you write in nyanja or lozi i may get your point. your english is too basic for me.
    secondly, you being a sata sympathiser only proves why he thinks elections were rigged. you are one of those who assume zambia is 3 provinces- lusaka, CB, luapula. you should have advised your man to campaign in the whole country and not just stick to his strongholds.

  223. #350, has SADC issued a statement over those ballot boxes with marked paper found in possession of that guy in Munali?? I guess not, those SADC chaps do not want to get into conflict with Zambia, so the only ting they do is declare the election free and fair

  224. Mr Sata and PF, please do to give up yet. At the moment, the is only vote difference of 9,108 but meanwhile, you have 21K spoiled ballot papers which have not yet been verified.

  225. Uyo Kanene is saying “Fre, Fair and Peacefull” when he has not even consulted the local observers and major stakeholders in these elections, people that have been on the ground all this time. Atamingila chani (brown envelop yamugwila naye).

    Final results are not evenb yet issued but he issues a statement, what a tourist in the name of “election (or is it erection) observer!

  226. @307 – what do you mean rural dwellers should be taught how to vote? They DID vote, unlike their urban counterparts, who sang, danced, drank, but didn’t vote. They voted in their best interests, as it is their constitutional right to do. Why are people complaining as if rural dwellers owe YOU their votes? If you wanted Sata, you should have registered and voted yourselves, and exercised your OWN votes. Non-voting PF supporters only have themselves to blame.

  227. The people that sweat and drive this economy are the ones that pay the most taxes i.e. the middle working class Zambian, the small businessman. They are the ones that have rejected RB, BUT in the end it is Shangombo that has the final say

  228. l have been looking for good news all day l cant seem to get it anywhere! RB winning ,Areseral losing at Stoke, Obama dealing with issue of his aunt who is living illegally in america and has contributed to his campaign which is illegal.l cant wait for the day to end

  229. Number 315 (TJ)the ECZ did not print less ballot papers than the registered voters. Where did you get the 2.2 million ballot papers printed from? 1.67 million voters is about half of the number of registered voters (3.6 million). I do not see where your confusion is. The 600 000 ballot papers were in excess of the number of registered voters and were not used. MMD just sensitised their members on the importance of voting and they turned up in numbers. HH did the same and his also voted in their numbers. Clearly PF depended on rallies and did not emphasise to their members that they needed to vote for them to win hence the apathy in their area. They could have won if many of them voted.

  230. #345 would you please stop throwing your MAN U vs HOE trush on this blog find somewhere to recycle your MAN U garbage am here not even a fun. if you cant cant talk the language to this blogg it best you stay off your computer i bet you are at a cafe posting nonses.

    What do you out of MAN U nothing u are just a slavery supporting wrong thing

  231. UCHIPO, MASSA WILL WIN. VJ IS IN BRAZIL, WE ARE SKIMMING SOMETHING TO SEE HOW HAMILTON WILL CRUSH OUT TOMORROW. MASSA IS PROVISIONALLY ON POLE AMID RAPTUROUS CHANTS FROM AROUND THE STADIUM.. VIVA VJ…

    WHO IS THAT ONE INSULTING MY LONDON PRINCESS, LEAVE MY PRINCESS LONDON ALONE PLIZ

  232. Dull chaps and their crazy leader, they forgot about varying demographics in Zambia. Even here in the U.S McCain will win in his strongholds and will lose in Barrack’s favoured areas. Why isn’t Sata angry with Southern province? Sata should blame HH who refused a merger! You know what,Sata’s time is up. Presidents are made from heaven! Learn to accept defeat batata, ba Michael.

  233. Peace Be Still people of Zambia. Facts are before us. THANKYOU RADIO ICENGELO for professional updates, analysis and the appropriate comments. You educated us. Fr Frank please go counsel Mr Sata,remind him, there is a reason why RB got so many votes on C/Belt and the most loyal just stayed away… Pf kaponya cadres have made it easy for MMD to win! again I say Live with it, RB is President.

  234. I shall start to EVADE these HEAVY taxes so that basobe ndalama yoika mu ma brown envelops. No more issuing receipts. Kako nikalimumala zo ona.

  235. 354.Princess, London,its not about english my dear,this is africa and enlgish is not my mother tongue ok.am telling u whats happening rite now,we dont need chaps who left this country to tell us what do,u dnt knw hw it feels like survive in a country like zambia with mmd policies,there fore it will be wise for u to keep yo brains and probably support some one in england.

  236. The current politics are scietifically driven and it is important for PF to embrace science and reflect.There rallies did not transform into vote – wrong marketing.And the rallies were just a forum for people to be entertained by a joker.Sata should embrace democracy in his party is not a sole trader shop.

  237. Parliament needs to get to business and pass these laws before the next elections 1.All the Chiefs are not to campaign for any political party 2.No giving sugar or corn meal to villagers by politicians because that is buying votes from poverty stricken Zeds

  238. Tough luck king Cobra! I hope you dont take this personal. Its the name of the game. Players change but the rules remain the same.

  239. whatever is gonna happen,i have stopped voting,have done it since 96,its seems it aint helping me in anyway,i quit

  240. #364
    Leave the guy alone it is not alwyays about politics nafi pita get on with your life .

    mossad-kgb

    Massa is good in Brazil but Hamilton is equally good on any day so let the best man win my only warry is the boy always want number 1 even when number five is more than good enough considering that he would be f1 chap. And on VJ if you think he can do it is ZED am sorry its not possible at international level his methods are country specific remember ZIM

  241. It will be very easy to catch a cheat by simply looking at the number of registered voters various catchment areas, the number of people who voted less deaths. The opposition can easily get this data from CSO, schools, as well as from traditional leaders who are well versed with population in their localities. Someone somewhere is bound to make a mistake with figures.

  242. 319.tax payer urban area, Why talk about your age mate’s marriage?She’s our 1st lady pls!!!!!!!!Are u married yourself? I mean happily married?You sound frustrated coz i can read even your #342.Thandiwe is on cloud X right now being tutored on how to make a good 1st lady!What are u doing yourself wit yo no-wrinkles man????

    1.RB is not surrounded by thieves.
    2.Yes,Villagers won’t see helicopters before 2011,actually they don’t need to see them- what for really?
    3.MMD victory is being celebrated by a lot of us and since u sound so bored u’d better come & join the party! the winning party thats it!!!!!!

  243. #327 UCHIPO, you are talking sense but for sensible politics. PF is Sata and Sata is PF. No Sata, no PF. He has never even subjected himself to elections. He is the fundraiser, the general secretary and the grass root himself. Remember his trips to Malawi? Remember his money laundering in South Africa? He earns his money by being United Nations ambassador for Taiwan. He used to be anti-mainland China because he thought Taiwanese could take over when he kicks out the Chinese. Now he has mud on his face because China has 1.7 trillion dollars in reserve to cushion the credit crunch. Taiwan will be borrowing from China through USA. Politics hey!

  244. for the last two months, the strategic plan from sata is to alert of presidential poll will be rigged, like he was sure to be the futur president !

    he knows that he wont be the president but wants to push people think that presidential poll had been rigged….

    when he will receive money he’ll stop these annunces

  245. I must be missing something that Mr Sata is saying about 75% turnouts? The highest turnouts going by the official results on the ECZ website are in the C/Belt and Southern province mostly won by Mr Sata and HH respectively. Lusaka mostly won by Mr Sata also had high turnout rates. The highest official turnout I have seen so far is Bweengwa at 60.93%, won by HH.

  246. tax payer urban area

    Do not loose hope my friend just because your vote was on the wrong candidate this time round there will come a time when we shall have a leader that will completely stand out from the rest.

    That day we will have no problem deciding who leads us into the future with hope. Remeber people did not really understand these elections its less than 3 years rule a continues ion of what the late president has put in place.eg someone even said they will rule for 5 years after these elections

  247. And now you RB, you have promised the Zambians a lot if things during the election should you win, are you honestly going to keep your promise?

  248. It was the power of us villagers which proved too much for sata. I managed to give ba Sata his present. Let the old man rest now, no need to break his heart further.

  249. Dear fellow Zambians,
    Why are we always suprised with the election results when we know very well that it is us the same people who vote for polical parties other than the issues the individual candidates put across. It is us the same pipo who in 2001 voted for MMD and rejected UPND and PF. it is the same pipo now that want PF instead of the monster(MMD) that they gave us in 2001. In 2001 we had a very good opportunity to remove MMD from power, but because pipo vote for politcal parties voted for MMD. It will be very difficult to remove MMD as long as this kind of mentality remains.
    2011, lets vote for the best candidate with the best solutions for our country.

    viva zambia

  250. VJ. That is the national problem we have. And now he says he wants to sue Lubinda. He must as well just sue the entire country.

  251. #393 – Uchipo ,

    When is the hamilton race? i really hope he wins. Hey I learned today that the political commentator who comes on CNN often Amy Holmes was born in Zambia.I’ve always liked her comments.

  252. EVERYBODY VOTES FOR THE CANDIDATE WHO HAS SOMEHING FOR HIM. NOW HERE IS THE SCENARIO. 400,000 IN FORMAL EMPLOYMENT AS TAX PAYERS. THIS IS ABOUT 4% OF POPULATION. 4 MILLION REGD VOTERS. THIS IS 10% OF VOTERS. SO PROMISING LOWERING TAXES IS GOOD FOR 10% OF VOTERS. 60% OF ZAMBIANS LIVE IN RURAL AREAS AND PROMISING CHEAP FERTILISER IS GOD FOR 50% OF VOTERS! SO WHO HAS BETTER POLICY? RB OF COURSE.

  253. it over over abatata!!!! cobra and the boat its over. you dint do you ground work. its a done deal . ba dan pule and the rest who joined the boat at the last minute shame! no jobs for you. the thug GBM you must be cursing yourself for misjudgement.

  254. YOU LAIRS. ARSENAL 1 VS STOKE CITY 2 NOT 0 2 AS YOU ARE REPORTING KAPONYAS. SATA LOST TODAY KAPONYAS. THANKS.HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA…

  255. ***You see what kind of media in Zambia***

    An Observer Critisises Media
    A SADC observer says there was a lot of media bias particularly by the print media in the run up to the presidential election in Zambia.

    Dr. Mokete Pherudi has described media bias in an election as a time bomb that could fan violence.

    He has called for the formation of an election media committee that would set codes of conduct for covering elections.

    Mr. Pherudi however commended the Electoral commission of Zambia for professionally conducting the presidential election.

    The SADC observer mission has described Thursday’s presidential election as free and fair.

  256. PF and UPND. We are tired of know it all MMD. Can you guys put your act together and rally behind a single candidate for 2011? This candidate should not be sata and definitely not Hakaivotela Humwine. But a new leader with clean credentials. Please or else we wont vote for either of you in 2011 because you are wasting our efforts.

  257. Stop mentioning VJ. You started looking for him in luapula when he is in Lusaka.haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…………..daga smoker lost. shutup.

  258. BANE BANE BUSHE ISNT IT POSSIBLE FOR SATA AND HAKAINDE TO COME TOGETHER NOW!! BEFORE THIS MAN IS INOGURATED? INSTEAD OF CHASSING AND TRYING TO FIND HOW AND WHERE THEY RIGGED BECAUSE ITS OBVIOUS BUT YOU CANT NAB THEM CAUSE THEY ARE IN GOVERMENT!!

  259. #397,

    You need to review the areas where PF has done well. Urban, informed rural areas. So that outdated theory that PF is made up of Kaponyas is has no proof whatsoever.

  260. MONSTERS – RIGGERS: I had a dream last night; one that will stay with me, for as long as I live. It is a dream of a lot of Zambians.

    We were living in a world, there was no pain; no hungry people. Everyone was at peace with one another. This man in my dream told me he’s from the future, coming to give something better even though I that: One monster dies another one comes alive.

    When we came to this world we were prepared to fight a battle but we found a war. When we came to this world, we were prepared to fight demons but we found the devil himself. Indeed, one Monster dies, another one comes alive! One “Rigger” dies, another one comes alive!
    We’ll regret this move of Re-electing MMD

  261. The Post , first wanted to put down Great Kalu a truly Zambian son ,secondly they criticised Levy’s Govt. through out and now it was RB .What a paper!They now lose with Sata.Mulongoti Deal with them next week.

  262. UCHIPO THE RACE IS STILL ONE, THEY ARE GOING FOR FINAL ROUND. THIRD QUALIFIERS TO DETERMINE WHO GOES ON POLE POSITION

  263. Amy Holmes (born Lusaka, Zambia,1973) is a conservative political contributor for CNN and has appeared on Fox News[1]. She has also appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher several times. Holmes graduated from Princeton University with a BA in economics in 1994. She is an independent conservative.[1]

  264. If you were not voting because he is from your area and you need change then let see when he became vice president to HH. Haaaaaaaaaaa
    pabwatoooooooooo…………..lost today. you troubled me alot you kaponyas today you will seee me.vote sata and HH. YOU will see change
    HH still have 32 billions.SATA is block now. tell him to brush his teeth please. how can he be our leader too dirty old man kaponyas.

  265. #354. How do you tell your friend that “your english is too basic for me”. He answered you well (#370). Just because you are in Uk lero you begin kumeka. Ataseeeeeeeeee! A Jemusi with imferiority complexes. By the way, we don’t even know what you do over there? I am proud Zambian and English is not our mother tongue. You can’t even acknowledge the effort that your friend has put in to learn this colonial language. Come back to Zambia. Who knows may be you are the beneficiary of misused Tax payers money!!!!!

  267. shutup!!!! Arsenal lost but not your figures you are telling your fellow kaponyas. Tell sata to brush his please. He has mentallity of a thug.

  268. mossad-kgb am here i av seen masa take P1. well VJ at work P4 for hamilton is not so bad but with alonso just behind him am afraid for him. masa has less fuel than hamilton and you know how the ferrari pit stops are or can turn out to be. the key for hamilton is to be calm or attack kimi right from the start int turn 1 and hope to force an error from him and pass him. put on some distance between him and alonso then he will still be champ regardless of masas win. we meet tomorrow after the race. i will cheer for hamilton stil. the boy is so Goooood. hope Heiki can fend off alonso.

  269. #410,

    But why did Amy Holmes dump the Zed name? Unless of course its was a colored Zed guy with a white name who was the dad.

  270. #404. SMOOTHCRIMINAL
    Sata & HH can get together whenever they feel like but it won’t make any different because this was a Presidential election,should PF & UPND form a pact,they would only control decision making(make noise) in Parliament but don’t forget the final say is with the Executive President in this case Bwezani Banda & to make matters worse HH & Sata filed in nominations separately so at the moment,no pact will help unseat MMD.
