President Rupiah Banda

President Rupiah Banda has dissolved parliament and cabinet, and has set 20th September as the date for this year’s tripartite elections.

President Banda says after consulting the Electoral Commission of Zambia on all logistics for holding elections, he is satisfied that the country can hold the polls and has signed statutory instrument number 76 0f 2011 for holding the presidential and general elections.

President Banda has also signed statutory instrument number 77 of 2011 for the Local Government elections.

This means that both the Presidential, Parliamentary and Local government elections will be held on the same date.

But president Banda says he and the vice president will continue running affairs of the nation and representing Zambia in international affairs until another government is ushered into office.

The president has says state functions will continue to operate normally.

Mr Banda says the decision made is in line with the Zambian constitution.

He says permanent secretaries will help him run government while the police and the army will continue to safeguard Zambia’s sovereignty.

President Banda says Zambia’s stability is underpinned by peace, unity and economic development and there is need to ensure that the elections are violence free.

Mr Banda has called on all candidates and players in the elections to ensure adherence to election guidelines.

President Banda has drawn the attention to the revised electoral code of conduct to ensure that there is harmony during and after the elections.

President Rupiah Banda’s FACEBOOK STATUS

Rupiah Bwezani Banda:
“I am really happy that the country will be going to the polls on Tuesday 20th September. Why not join me on Monday for the MMD campaign launch at the Intercontinental Hotel here in Lusaka? Nafuti nafuti!”

=====================================================================================

President Banda says International observers are welcome to come and monitor elections in Zambia.

And President Banda says government has managed to develop the country.

He says the Zambia of 2011 is different from the Zambia of 2006 as the country’s economy over the last five years has grown to 6.6 per cent.

Government also managed to implement prudent fiscal and economic policies that saw the inflation rate plummet to a single digit.

The country also witnessed two consecutive bumper harvests under the leadership of the MMD government.

President Banda has thanked all cabinet ministers for their contribution to the economic gains made during the period.

President Banda also reminded the nation that over the period 2006 – 2011, the country lost two presidents, Dr Mwanawasa on August 19th 2008, and Dr Chiluba on 18th June 2011.

    • Don’t be too sure, are the ballot papers serially numbered?? who is in charge of printing them, last time they were printed in Durban South Africa VJ paid them a visit and MMD won, one would have expected someone from the ECZ to visit the printers. Not forgetting dead people are able to vote in most villages!!! will RB behave like Bagbo !!??? are we using transparent boxes or will the boxes come with votes pre-cast?? pray for our democracy

WHY TUESDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER, IT SHALL BE A HOLIDAY ON TUESDAY, COUNTING AND DECLARING MP’S STARTS WEDNESDAY, NO WORK HEART ATTACKS, THURSDAY WE START GROUPING IN OUR SMALL ENCLAVES, FRIDAY POSSIBLE VIOLENT CRIES AND GNASHING OF TEETH. THE WHOLE WEEK WE SHALL BE AT WORK, BUT VERY LOW PRODUCTIVITY. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THURSDAY SO WE REST AND PRAY FOR THE WINNER OVER THE WEEKEND.

  19. Actually elections have been set for September 20, 2011 not 28th. Whatever the case,  its ramble in the jungle. MMD is battle ready while others are still scrambling for who to nominate in constituencies around the country. They are busy imposing their kith and kins; tribesmen and women without a cooling period for their mess.

  21. I think RB’s pronunciation is at fault on the election date. I listened in and have recorded the speed. Sounded like 28th, but was 20th because of the Tuesday.

    It is the way he pronounced twenty -yeth sounded like twenty -eighth

    he needs a coach on how to speak clearly.

    SO Date is 20th September

    • That’s an impossible question to answer as results will likely be delayed, should the current president be trailing behind. Chances are they will finish counting the urban areas and push ghost voters in rural areas to ensure that RB goes through. But I hope your Scottish fiance is loaded and not too old, well he must be seeing you are going to Paris for shopping, its the age that worries us the!

  32. # 44,
    Kudos! I actually watched him live too. Indeed he said “twenty -yeth” which sounded like “twenty -eighth” but to clear it all, he mentioned tuesday September twenty-yeth. All in all PF kaponyas say they don’t watch independent ZNBC and ready balanced Lusaka Time, the Zambian WD and SUFZ. How come they are confusing themselves with what came clear on ZNBC?

  33. I heard the president say TUESDAY, I REPEAT TUESDAY 28 SEPTEMBER. Is it that there is no one to advise the president or write his speeches? He is actually using last year’s diary (2010)  when 28 September fell on a Tuesday. The old chap is living in the past, and you wonder why the country is not developing

  35. will miyanda manage to organise his coalition in less than two months? i dont think so.The battle is between RB and MC.RB has his own weakeneses and strengths.Same applies to MC.But which one between the two on agregate, is suitable for the top job?
    As much as we need change, in my opinion, RB is better.

  39. #55 (Mushota), I can already guess the timeline….voting commences 06hrs to 18hrs..but extended to 20hrs in some remote areas (power cuts, etc)..results start pouring in from Lusaka and line of rail around 03 next morning… by mid day Sata is leading, by 20hrs RB catches up, by 04 next morning RB is leading..by 10 he’s sworn in. By 10.30 Sata wants to beat up a BBC journalist and threatening legal action against ECZ or something like that.

This time we have advised them to start announcement of results starting with MMD’s perceived strongholds if they have any at all left.

  90. With the daily mess Sata is creating in his circus party, he has no cooling period to transform into credence and miraculously galvanize his insanity into better good.MMD is battle ready from border-to-border and has successfully finished its party logistics in all constituencies, wards and Branches. Losers are still plugging in their relatives and sending snob Patrick Mwanawasa to provinces accessing their imaginary popularity.

    The electoral system is not about pockets of tribal votes but winner takes it all from the aggregation of cast national wide votes.

If he loses he will have a heart attack because he will understand that that would be his last chance and the end of his dream. Are we willing to take chances for another by-election. Vote wisely.

  104. Hey Zedians!!! Vote wisely in the forthcoming elections. U have seen economic development that the country has achieved in the last few years.This is because of prudent fiscal policies that RB and the past on Presdo( Mwanawasa RIP) had put into place. For the country to achieve what it has achieved its because of good leadership of RB. Lets maintain this government & peace in the country. No Kaponya, Call boy in govt. Don’t trust Satan to run the affairs of Zambia, if u do make this mistake of allowing call boys to run the affairs of country, it will never develop…..VIVA RB. Nafuti nafuti…

  106. 156 Chief- MMD 1// I agree with you, only those whose eyes are tinted with tribalism will fail to recognize RB’s contribution. He sustained the poor nation’s economic growth into middle income, stabilized all macro-economic parameters. Massive infrastructure developement: schools, hospitals, railways, roads etc. Zambians what else are you looking for that RB has not done? Mind you these are achievements in two years only. Tribalism down, the old man is good.

  113. Zambia is at crossroads! Reelecting RB will not be a disaster for the country, although he has failed to stop corruption and has undermined the other branches of government (Judiciary). Managing of revenue from the mines is a [email protected] up! However, Sata does not seem to offer much, him being from MMD with the other rejects from the same party. HH is potentially a good vote but to me he seems to have delayed branding himself and telling Zambians what he can do. Apart from his youth I do not see any positive attributes or what he brings to the table.

    It is a difficult call to make for Zambians and I feel that the youth in Zambia have been systematically excluded from participating in national matters. Hence the shortfall in high caliber candidates in presidential and parliamentary elections.

I am not a supporter of any political party, but I can safely tell you that schools, hospitals and roads (new) are being constructed over the country by GRZ. My work entails travelling around the country and I can attest to this fact. Most rural districts had Rural Health Centres but now District Hospitals are being constructed, Technical High School for Girls are being constructed as well-the Ndola one has already been opened. I travelled on the Senanga-Sesheke Road in December-contractors were busy working on it. RB will go with his head high if he is voted out!

  170. Take this as serious prediction PF- 44% , MMD- 33% . Where will Wiliam Banda, Dora, Chanda Chimba, Lifwekelo,.. go there after? Keep well receipts, if you have that you used to create hatred towards MMD through your ZNBC programs. MMD miscalculated, you don’t win people by scandalising but by befriending.

  171. @255 BASHI LULU “MMD miscalculated, you don’t win people by scandalising but by befriending”. Watch the recording of Mr Sata’s rallies on Chanda Chimba III’s Stand Up for Zambia, see and hear what Mr Sata had to say about Levy Mwanawasa, Sylvia Masebo, Panji Kaunda and many others. The tragedy of PF and Mr Sata is that they cannot criticise anybody without people saying “look who is talking!”

  172. @250 Poor Zed People, “We need to advocate for a true constitution, why should the nation leave with uncertainity about election date. …The new leader should be put under pressure to give us back our proposed constitution. And not the Kunda lead constitution making process…….we need to progress as a nation”. The writing is on the wall for all who can read. Among his many misdemeanours if Mr Sata cannot allow a single ballot at his so called national convention, are Zambians so gullible that they expect him to give us a true constitution?

  173. We are on the ground. The other day I found myself in a debate with a PF cadre (he was alone otherwise I would not dare). I said something about Mr Sata’s negative record and history and the cadre asked me whether I thought that people don’t change. I said of course people do change, but Mr Sata hasn’t, he is the same old foul mouthed and deceptive politician. I pointed out that even the Post has never stated that Mr Sata has changed from the picture that they painted about him in their past editions. When I challenged the cadre to state what he thought had changed about Mr Sata, he looked away almost with tears in his eyes. I couldn’t help but sympathise with the poor cadre for the lies that he has to absorb before someone tells him the truth.

  174. The truth of the matter is that there is poverty in Zambia, we have schools without teachers and no teaching aids, we have hospitals without medical stuff no drugs and equipment even in old hospitals. very few roads are being done as copmared to the number of roads required to be done. the money used to do these projects by the last kicks of a dying horse is borrowed and will have to be paid back through the nose. The so called investors are getting our copper without any meaningfull tax. Thats why we are for change for sanity. Corruption nipamishi!

  175. @259 kangwele, “The so called investors are getting our copper without any meaningfull tax. Thats why we are for change for sanity”. Well, I have news for you, Mr Sata has categorically stated that he is quite satisfied with Zambia’s current mining tax regime and would not change it if he came to power. Now this is not my opinion, and it was not reported by the public media but by an independent and internationally respected news agency, Reuters. Your comments please?

  176. Yeeeeeeessssssssssssssss! its time. I am here at the border of northern and luapula province where people are enjoying the fruits of unpreceedented growth and middle income status. There is a shiny new rural health center serving 12 000 people up to 35km away, or and it even has 2 nurses and a public health tech (we call him doctor). There are also 4 basic schools and 3 community schools, we are happy even if one has two teachers, after all we need the girls to get married when they turn 14 or grow breasts (whichever comes first). I was surprised yesterday I met a 16year old girl who is single and she says she still has her english (ichisungu)! Anyway just to say that we happy with the good policies of the MMD and Alabi.

  179. @259 kangwele, many of us when we read the Post we do so with a pinch of salt. We know that it is not the “independent” tabloid that it claims to be, except to the extent that it represents Mr Mmembe’s individual “independent” opinion. As an individual Mr Mmembe wants to use his paper to select leaders for us all, the 13 million of us, even when he knows that those “leaders” have a murky past which was revealed by himself Mmembe, amply and abundantly recorded in past editions of his own “newspaper”. Well he can fool some of you, but not all of us. And fortunately we have Chanda Chimba III on the side of truth.

    • He has actually lost the last three elections; 2001, 2006 and 2008 now going for the fourth in 2011. Lost to LPM twice and once to RB, I guess he is used to losing twice to the same candidate. lol.

  185. Some opposition leaders have spent all their time 24/7 criticising everything that the government has been doing. Instead of telling people even one thing of what they will do or do better, they have foolishly believed that criticising will bring them the much needed votes. Now they have only 50 days to sell themselves across the country. I hope that they learnt Zambia’s geography well when they were in secondary school, that the country is not only Lusaka and Copperbelt, it is a large country of 753,000 square kilometers. To cover this vast expanse during campaigns is not a joke especially if you travel by road, even if Rupiah Banda has tried his best to level the playing field by repairing or tarring most of the roads across the country.

  188. No normal and patriotic Zambian would expect RB and MMD to lose the 2011 tripartite elections.RB has fathomed all armchair critics and their political dreamers every patriot consider parody.He has systematically galvanized his victory with resonating national programs.I pray Sata doesn’t enter into a stroke this time around after losing 4 times in a row. What can one expect to gain from Icasa Nkandu Luo, Mulongoti, Mpombo, Mangani, Derrick Chitala, Masebo,John Mambo, Kabimba, GBM, Kapijimpanga and such criminals? What is the reason Zambians would risk with these chaps again?

  189. @269 concerned, in addition to peace politics is about governing and delivering development to the people 24/7, it is about bumper maize harvest, stable food prices, schools for our children, hospitals, roads etc. There is no holiday or election period where development is concerned, unless we stop eating, shopping, travelling, becoming ill, or even going to school until after elections. Sane people know these simple facts, that is why they will not change a government that delivers on these things to usher in unknown elements who have not even been polite enough to tell us what they can do for us if we voted for them.

  200. If Sata or RB wins, it is very likely that non of them will finish their terms due to old age and Zambia could end up having another Presidential By-Election. It is a shame that none of the main political parties are headed by young Presidential candidates with the exception of HH. However, HH does not seem to have the “Obama factor” and therefore ruled out of this year’s elections as a winner. Looking, ahead, the main political parties should start grooming future leaders so that we don’t end up with “old politicians”. HH can win 2016 if he re-brands, collaborates and works with others outside UPND.

  201. OOPs the news of Mr Mwansa Chriticles-Permanent secretary of ministry of science and technology to be adopted is quiet clear that RB now realises that he didn’t choose candidates properly. he is changing people he annouced adopted with new comers who didn’t even apply to contest.He makes wonder!What was the reason for him to announce adopted candidates if he knew certain candidates would be removed?He is bringing more confusion in the party.Maluba for Mwansabombwe was adopted by MMD.How come he wants to listern to Mwata kazembe who doesn’t like Maluba?Is mwata the all constituency?MMD wanted maluba but RB wants to impose Mwansa who refused to stand at first.But the news is that the man has been issued threats if refuses, therefore Mr Mwansa has no choice but to stand

Masebo is empty, Mulongoti is empty, Mangani is empty, but Luo and Chitala they cause such embarrasement on the learned fratenity.
