Zambia’s main opposition leader Michael Sata has launched a court challenge to demand a recount of the vote in the Oct. 30 presidential election, his party’s lawyer said.

“I know that (my colleagues) are currently in court filing a petition. I am now working on some more documents which we will submit to the court next week,” Winter Kabimba, lawyer for Sata’s Patriotic Front, told Reuters.

“We are actually going for a vote recount which must be done by way of a petition.”

Sata, who lost the poll to Rupiah Banda, has branded the election to find a successor to late President Levy Mwanawasa a fraud. Mwanawasa died from a stroke in August, two years into his second five-year presidential term.

Political tensions have been rising in Zambia, Africa’s biggest copper producer.

Zambian police arrested 38 people on Thursday after violent protests over the arrest of a priest and radio presenter in the country’s second-biggest city, Kitwe, a police spokesman said.

Police said the arrest of Frank Bwalya, a priest and manager of Catholic-run Radio Icengelo, which has been critical of Banda’s government, sparked the riots.

  7. So are long as the judges are appointed by the ruling party’s executive, this petition is going nowhere. I am a hard core PF supporter but I like being rational. Let us organize our party and go for convention. We elect our leadership and get moving. I can only see the petition as an opportunity to make changes in the electoral process. VIVA PF.

  8. What do we mean by patriotism in the context of our times? I venture to suggest that what we mean is a sense of national responsibility … a patriotism which is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime….

  10. It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace–but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

  14. Sata’s Inconsistency. In 2006 he refused to go to court and didn’t want to parade himself in front of judges saying ” yes my lord, yes my lord” which was useless. Now he will go and parade himself and say “yes my lord”. Lets wait for the verdict after three years!

The matter is now before the courts so commenting further will not do.Let us have confidence in RB,Sata and the Courts of Zambia.lets also give them chance to work.All this mess can not be blamed on RB but on Sata and his guyz who were designing the constitution.Our constitution has loopholes created by sata and chiluba

    IF THE COURTS RULE AGAINST HIM HE WILL SAY THEY ARE CORRUPT BECAUSE THEY ARE APPOINTED BY THE GOVERNMENT. I COULD HAVE BEEN SUPPORTIVE IF IT WAS SOMEONE REASONABLE LIKE HH OR RB OR TK BUT SATA! AWE TESANA! HE IS A CANTANKEROUS AND CONTRARY POLITICIAN WHO WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED UNTIL HE IS PRESIDENT. A MAN WHO WANTS POWER SO MUCH IS POWER HUNGRY AND DANGEROUS FOR POLITICS. THE QUESTION PEOPLE MUST BE ASKING IS ‘WHAT IS IN IT FOR HIM?’ SURELY, IT IS NOT TO BETTER THE CONDITION OF THE PEOPLE BECAUSE LIKE SENATOR MC CAIN IN US, HE HAS BEEN PART OF BOTH KK AND CHILUBA’S GOVTS FOR MORE THAN 15 YEARS! WHAT EXACTLY DID HE DO FOR THE COMMON MAN?

  20. Provoker #29. MMD will not rule for ever. This is truth my friend. There has been large kingdoms & countries , but in the end they all fall.It the people’s will that wins in all the cases. We should wait for 2011 and see some of us in the PF come to the fore. Sata is not the only leader in PF. We are mutating by the day and that is what politics are. We have learnt a lot of lessons in these past elections. Just look at the margins (MMD Vs PF)from 2001. Look at the margin in the last elections. 2011 MMD kuya bebele.

  26. eH HE. What did I say? I told you Sata has got a plan every minute hatching plans to distract people from development. He is power hungry. By the way he is also de-campaigning himself even more cause campaigns are not just about the time you stand on the podium and tell people why they must vote for you. Fellow voters let me tell you, the change you want and believe in starts with you. Dont wait for someone to change things for you it begins with you. Thats why there is a difference between hardworking and lazy people. Be responsible and be the change you want to see.

  27. He may not be president now or in futurebut I admire his charisma and determination which is largely lacking in even the most educated of our politicians. His activities as in being lark about politics will put him in our history books. In years to come, our children will use him as a basis of arguing out just cause and shaping the tenets of democracy as we cry for it now. Whether we like him or not his actions are destined to enter our Zambian history books unlike the quiet diplomacy that chops off the finishing of a well ground story. I simply enyoy Sata as an indivuidual who sets tone to how ordinary Zambians view their leaders and gives us much to talk about, be it something + or -.

    While we are busy demonising him and calling him names, the ‘undereducatd man’has beaten us all in being part of Zambia’s history. Entering the Zambia Law reports (maybe)with this current case. My Question is, Where is your and my part on the Zambian scene other than ceaseless blogging surmounted with insults and unprintables??? Let us pick one or two good traits from this dedicated son of Zambia and use it for our benefit regardless of what our beliefs are.

  34. Something u pipo must understand about Sata is that he has a very unpredictable Temperament & hard working .Which means he is capable of bringing change( by taking us back at least 30 years and also capable of of being a danger to our country) Yes we need change but not the Sata change!!You pipo supporting him will cry if he ever comes to power…..Back to the topic.. What he is doing is the right way to go but i can asure u that if the out come doesnot go in his favour, It will be back to ranting, panting and throwing stones!!Zambians u have a very short memory!!!!

Obama’s victory is what we need here in Zambia. we prayed hard to God to answer us get lead of MMD but again they have rigged us lets be patient will soon get to know who is the Zambian president after a recount of votes. but make sure they explain what action to take to those people who where caught with ballot boxes. we need a proper answer and not story. do your level best before we get involved in this seriously

  47. Sata’s move to go to the courts is good as this will give a good impression for our country being democratic, even though we know for sure the judge and everyone else cannt make him win.But it good for the constituition review commission on ammending or changing some parts of our constitution for the betterment of our country.

We appreciate the fact that they can NEITHER write NOR read, but that they cannot even interpret pictures is scary! If anything HH comes closer to Obama, age and school wise. Even vision wise. There is nothing in common between a very grade 4 dropout who has achieved nothing in life and Obama whose record of excellence speaks for itself. Its a shame and scandal to compare Obama to a kaponya. Shame!!!!

  100. In certain parts of the world if the percentage difference between candidates is as small as it was between Sata and RB a vote recount is automatic. This case is going to embarrass ECZ and MMD. Numbers don’t cheat.ECZ would have to reconcile all the votes to the voter register and account for the extra voters cards that were printed. You will see what will happen.Kalale will fail to explain his numbers. RB has appointed George Kunda as his Veep because he knows that he is facing touch legal challenges based on facts. MMD will try by all means to avoid vote recount

    I think RB is appointing people who will be defending him not people who are to work.Look at Mpombo,Mulogoti,VJ etc.Anyway may be they will work.

    By the way i heard Magande last week had handed in a resignation.I think you knew that this government will take Zambia to the drains this time will stop talking about a fast growing economy but poverty

But we need PF people, they are also important, we need them to man our bus stops and markets. I mean isn’t that what they are known for? Lets continue our good work. We have a nation to rule.

People like Fr Frank Bwalya, the servant of God, knows how painful it is for the poor. The catholic church has been turned into a social organisation who supports the poor instead of the Govt.

The man lost clean, he has no support in five provinces where Kaponyas’ are few.

As for Sylvia babes, you’re a truly hardworking woman but your big mouth speaking to Post newspaper reporters landed you in hot soup! and to all of you bloggers hatin’ on VJ, he has better statesman credentials that your lumpen leader Sata will ever have! Not too sure bout’ Georgie Porgie as VEEP, he’s very smart but lacks charisma which a geezer like RB needed to balance his cabinet (Akashambatwa or Mutati would have been better picks???).

    Why do you insult Sata because of his lack of education,considering that 70 % of Zambians are in fact in the same category? Should we only listen to the opinions of people who have a University degree? Whats makes you think that just cause you have one then you are better than him?

    Does it not occur to you that people relate to him in a way that they may not to an intellectual?

    as someone with a University degree I can appreciate why the poorest of our people are inspired by someone who has made it through sheer will and determination and street smarts, cause he inspires them into beliving that even they can make it!

    Ecomomically speaking, if you were a person living in Chimwmwee township, whose ecomnomic policies would you agree with? Policies that would see the market liberalised and foreign investors coming in and bringing their own labour force, stealing jobs that poor Zambians can do? Policies that force the govt. to spend less on Health and education? or Pro poor policies that grow Zed businesses and provide employment and opportunites for Zambians?

I listened to Robert Sichinga on Phoenix this morning and he alluded to the fact that Zed needs young and fresh blood to be at the helm.

  168. 349. Miss President,
    Mugabe created opportunities for its own people the Zimbabweans. He did this by giving land to his people to empower them. He was looking at the government cash available then. He did not see the implications of his moves. He did not know that those foreigners were necessary for investment in the agric sector which was the main stay of the economy. That empowerment of his people has turned out to be power striping too for his own people. PF can do exactly the same, and if they get similar results they would go ahead and get surprised. How sad!

DID YOU NOTICE THAT MRS SATA-KASEBA DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN CAMPAIGNING FOR HER HUSBAND THIS TIME? SHE WAS NOT EVEN AT THE HIGH COURT. SHE HAS GIVEN UP ON THE OLD MAN, SO WHY DON’T WE ALL?

    It’s blind royalty and boot licking that will take this country back to the stone age. Anyway lets wait and see what happens between now and 2011.

    Yes I do have future political aspirations but to be honest i am disilusioned by the selfish and self serving atttiudes of the so called educated Zambian elite , who only care about themselves and not about the majority of Zambians who are poor and suffering. Anyway
    I am not comparing Sata and Obama,perosonally, just in that how Obama represented change for the Americans, the common man in the Zed support Sata because they see him as someone who got to where he is thoroughh hard work and they hope he can change things for the beter, simple as! People need to be inspired by their politcians and like him or not, Sata is an inspireing and formidable character!

    I agree with Mugabe in principal because land especially in Africa is an emotive issue, and no ways should more than 90% of prime arable land be owned by White non african farmers, that is a travesty in a continent which has only been free from the chains of colonialism in the last 45 years or so! However I stress I do not CONDONE the VIOLENCE that ensued that is so wrong, as well as the vote rigging and the supression of the opposition.
    Howver I ask you this? How can any ecomomy survive, when the Western Leaders strangle your economy and you can import vital commodites like fuel, medicattion etc? How can you survive after more than 8 years of sustained ECONoMiC SANCTIONS??

Yes Mugabe made some mistakes, however belive you me the Brtish and US govt’s knew what they were doing and the best way of imposing regime change in the Zim was to undermine Mugabes intentions! dont believe everything you read in the media becuase everyone has their agenda and the last thing our fomrer Colnial leaders need is powerful,nationalistic African leaders that threaten their commerical interests! be warne

  189. #406, Magande it is not so much about being dismissed, he did not just want to embarrass the President, Magande wanted to resign because according to him, he did not want to fight with cadres i.e. Teta and Mulongoti, imagine him sitting in the same cabinet meeting with empty tins like Tetamashimba and making cabinet decisions. Dr Musokotwane like Magande are not politicians, which gives me some confidence and Dr Musokotwane is highly ethical.

A governor is equivalent to a DA in our times. Now, can you Surely say a DA or DC has put up a bridge? Secondly, SATA never initiated the construction of Mezarf flats, it was Government. A government project is collective, therefore, it cannot be attributed to one person. Can you surely, say the sitting LSK Provincial Minister has built the CANCER Diseases Hospital?

They are both christians. They are both tall (and not dumpies).

They are both highly ambitious along the lines of service to the people. They both have a large following of people. Endless list

  221. #14 CHIMBU… Going to the corrupt Zambian courts doesn’t matter. What is heavily questionable is investing to much belief in external systems and tending to use them more than your local systems. Using Zambia’s systems (we understand they are all corrupt) is a good starting point. You cannot correct, correctly something (or a system) you have never used. Sata is very right to use Zambian courts. Mind you, “you can’t miss what you cant measure”. When I was a school boy at Kamwala and Kabulonga Sata used to wear shorts and gum boots to go and join gabage collectors at the city centre market using a shovel to scoop rubbish from the ground into skips.

  222. So SATA knows what he talks about. He introduced long distance and commuter buses for lusaka city council. When a bunch of drivers and conductors decided to still their collections. He instantly fired them and hired a fresh group of drivers and conductors. It was during the time I was joining the city council as an accounts officer with other colleagues. Instead of straight away becoming account officers SATA deployed as on buses as conductors until he employed actual conductors. The point is, the man is brilliantly quick in making business decisions and this is where other people find problems.

In his political career, SATA has initiated and implemented a lot of changes in the country. When RB (and others) was a governor of lusaka a lot of people died at at the two rail crossings in the city but never bothered to do anything. During his governorship, SATA built the two over-bridges and thats how lives were spared. It needs someone with peoples’ lives interest to do that. Thats what SATA is.

SATA’s interest is only to be a servant of citizens of Zambia and not master. He wants to deliver and encourage people that things are doable. Be reminded that a political arena is no beat contest ground at all. Anyone old or young can have the vision to serve the people. Thats why in America (US of A) age descrimination is a serious crime. An individual or company can be jailed for that.

  238. It is a long wrong move, please concentrate on registration of voters in urban areas so that we are not by passed by our rural colleagues again. Chiluba’s case has taken 7yrs, this petition may take 4 years, Bwana Sata drop this petition case or else it will be a judicial academic exercise.

  240. Let Sata persue justice lest the MMD blame him for every ritous behaviour which we all know is coming from people who wanted change NOT only PF. People without jobs; jobs but no decent salary; failing to pay for their school children and those thrown in the streets not for their own making, the list is endless………..

  245. We do not even need any proof, sata lost elections. Who says this Sata is a hard worker, just dictating even if you are giving wrong instructions. This man likes blaming people for his failures, thank God he did not win. Sata cannot even draft a letter he needs people to do that for him. What kind of a leader is he going to make just making noise like an empty tin. Please Zambians we should not always be choosing the least let us learn to think outside the box. This man is not presentable he can just embarass the nation through his loud mouth. Kunda is even better than Sata because he can write a manifesto for a party like mmd. Viva mmd in 2011 to the same.

  246. I DON’T SEE MUCH SENSE IN COMMENTS PASSED BY THOSE LIVING IN ZAMBIA. BLOGGING MUST BE LEFT TO US LIVING ABROAD COZ WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO ANALYS ISSUES CONSTRUCTIVELY.

  247. Fair results and congrats Chipolopolo.
    Meantime:
    Vote president HH and his UPND Team for a possible youthful team of GRZ to lead Zambians to economic independence.

    Kala kabotu alakuyasa mavwa. This is our time, as youths, and this is surely our moment to work with new Personal Computers tools – calculator boy – to serve all Zambians of all backgrounds for a real ray of change and hope that all can believe and trust in.

  248. certainly like your website but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality however I will surely come back again.
