President Michael Sata receives instruments of power from outgoing President Rupiah Banda as Chief Justice Ernest Sakala looks on at the inauguration ceremony at the Supreme Court in Lusaka
President Michael Sata receives instruments of power from outgoing President Rupiah Banda as Chief Justice Ernest Sakala looks on at the inauguration ceremony at the Supreme Court in Lusaka

Former Republican President Rupiah Banda has refuted assertions that American Ambassador to Zambia Mark Storella and first Republican President Kenneth Kaunda persuaded him to concede defeat when he lost the 2011 presidential elections.

Mr Banda told Radio Phoenix in an interview from Kenya monitored in Lusaka yesterday that contrary to reports, at no time did Mr Storella nor Dr Kaunda persuade him to concede defeat.

“I have never had a visit from Dr Kaunda…I haven’t seen him other than at the funeral of our late mother, his dear wife. As for the American Ambassador, he is there in Lusaka, you can check,” he said.

Mr Banda said fortunately both Mr Storella and Dr Kaunda were in Zambia and was hopeful that they would one day come out in the open and tell the people the truth.

He said it had dawned on him that he was losing the elections just after midnight on the day of counting, and yet there were still some flock of people peddling falsehoods that it was not his intention to accept defeat.

“Of course it was my idea to concede defeat in the election results. Nobody could have forced me to do otherwise,” he said.

He said it was in view of the foregoing that he felt that he was in a better position to advise whoever would lose in the Kenyan elections to concede defeat.

Mr Banda said unlike in Zambia, the Kenyan press and the people from that country had rejected hatred as a way of campaigning and was hopeful that Zambia could learn something from that.

Meanwhile, Mr Banda is happy with the resilient spirit exhibited by the Kenyan people in that country’s general elections.

This was according to a statement released by the Office of the Fourth Republican President’s deputy administrative assistant Kennedy Limwanya.

Mr Banda felt the Kenyan elections which took place on Monday had proved that Kenyans were ready to move forward and close the sad chapter of the 2007 elections.

Mr Banda who is in Kenya under the auspices of the Carter Centre International Elections Observer Mission said this when he visited the Elections Observation Group (ELOG) offices where the Mission was shown how the parallel voter tabulation was conducted.

The Carter Centre team also paid a courtesy call on Kenya’s Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo who assured that his officers were ready for any eventuality that might arise after the announcement of the final results.

    • Couldn’t he resign? Why just the way Banda conceded defeat, Sata should just step aside so “the leaders of tomorrow” (remember when you were told that you were) can take control.

    • Even if 2016 were to come tomorow your prayers will be in vain because there is no credible opposition leader that can run Zambia better than Sata.HH and Nevers Mumba are power hungry and have no vision to take Zambia forward in anyway.We know them too well that they will never be presidents of Zambia.Keep dreaming and building castles in the air!!

RBB is a terrible liar and one day his lies will catch up with him

    • I daily offer prayers in thanxgiving for the gift of this great country and especially for the five Presidents God ever blessed to lead this nation. Human as they were and could be did and would err, but it was God out of 13 Million who handpicked the five men at appointed times to rule over Zambia. If anything has gone wrong or righ with our beloved Republic, every citizen has contributed a percent to the wrongs. We need to grow up, be honest that for everything there is a season and God is blessing this nation every moment. We need to remain united, work hard to defeat poverty than to count on Govt. Whether we like it or not God has allowed the present president to rule, he needs the chance, respect and support till we get another opportunity to elect another one if need arises.

  8. Says RB two and half year’s later when he realises the prudence of conceding without persuasion. Yes, KK and Storella will not say otherwise because they need you and Zambia to be a good example. Meanwhile, 15 people died in Kenya ellections at your watch RB, but no word to condemn the incident would come from your mouth. You want to show everybody that you are an angel yet you are allowing your son to evade the law and allowing Amsterdam to abuse your countrymen. In your message after the election you should have put it clear that you concede to give example for all other African leaders to follow the rule of law. Your words are a little too late now and we already know what happened that night. Why now, RB, Why now? You want the commonwealth team to hear?

It pleases us to know otherwise-to bad for you.

    • #8 Mama,

      You are of low caliber like PF Sata who has not up to now realised he is President because of his inferiority complex.

      Honestly if u are a normal person u can not defend the indefensible THUGS PF Sata & his evil rotten corrupt Ministers who deserve to be shot in front of State House by Zambians.

      How do u defend Sata & his ministers for the shortages of Mealie Meal, Fuel & Farming input which never happened in Zambia since we Zambians removed UNIP Dictator human sacrifice satanist Kenneth Kaunda in 1991?

      U need to be fair to us Zambians who are suffering.

Yes it was expected that there would be violence, but it has been mitigated to the barest minimum. Why do you always want to look for faults where none exist and ignore those that are plainly in your indolent faces? like our Economy, Employment, Agricultural crisis where basal dressing is delivered in February..ZNS cadets raping civilians and for the first time in Zambia’s history, the list is in exhaustible so I will put etc.. You can hate RB all you want, that is not my problem, I want you to concentrate the problems Zambia is facing now because they are no longer his problem!

    • @Nkwazi__Flying: A true statesman advises his government and not alienating it. If RB is an angel and was good at governance, he will still be good today and advise the president on how to rum the office. Yet again, Shaka oZ will say it would be a waste of time. You cannot preach love in a foreign country and live with hate in your own. You cannot claim to respect other governments when you do not have an ounce of respect for your own. It is easy to tell your neighbour not to pee on the bed than to tell your family when they know you peed on the bed the previous night. This is what RB is doing. He wants to show credibility in the international forum while he is despised even by MMD in his country. Now he wants to clear the air about his concession because his actions that night still nag.

They are willing to move mountains to get him in prison, now tell me is that a government that is willing to take advice, from Chipomo, Miyanda, Milupi, Sikota to HH and many more non politicians, this government has been advised. How much of that advise has been heeded? Jesus himself preached everywhere else but Nazareth unless someone wants to correct me. Which MMD dispises him? Kachingwe and Namugalas? And what concession are you talking about? Whatever it is, how does it improve or degrade your life or mine?

  9. Nobody is an angel. There is always a dark side of every person. The problem comes in only when a person’s dark side outweighs the lighter side. I believe that is not the case with RB. Mark my word, no amount of hatred, jealosuy or malice will take away anything from the man’s growing stature as a statesman. Zambians should be proud that one of their our own is involved in promoting free and fair elections in Africa especially that the continent’s elections are usually marred with fraud and malpractices.

    • We are proud of RB but is he proud of us Zambians and the system we have? When Sata came in power he respected RB and asked him to represent the country in one or two ocassions. The RB goes to write an apology letter to Bush. Everything else that follows we all know. Now he is using a foreign ‘lawyer” to despise our government. This is not the making of a statesman. In order for you to be a statesman you need to respect your state. Sata defeated him, so what/ Let him get over it. Now for him to higher a loud mouthed lawyer to despise everything Zambian government is not right. Our government may be bad, but it is ours and we should put out heads together to support and correct it. Not hate and criticism day and night. What has HH and Mumba done to help with governance? RB their leader.

    • @john katobela and Shaka Oz: Apart from insults and hate what else do you have in your peewee brains? As Veep RB was mute. As president RB in three years was almost alienating Zambia from donors and other partners. He even disrespected the OP. He never listened to anyone when it come to corruption and underhand deals. Zambia turned to be his private company. If you think I am lying, why do you think he does not want to answer any question? A “statesman” who cannot answer questions from his state. Where is RB today? Tell me any one thing he has done to build democracy in Zambia since he left office. MMD rejected his call to maintain presidency. It took threats from GRZ over his severance for him to let go. Now he says I conceded without persuation. Shameless. I love RB. He is adorable.

We will support PF and when they fail us we will support others. We support policies and plans not people. We did not support RB’s policy on corruption. We still do not support RB’s policy of lawlessness which he is fostering by shielding his son. We do not support his policy of turnishing Zambia’s name. Yes we maybe maggots and animals to you, but thank God we are still His creatures. We bless you for cursing us. May you reap what you sow in Jesus Name.

  11. Things are not alright in Zambians! Zambians are suffering more than they did even before 1991!

    It is very predictable & with no doubt that Dictator Sata & his greedy corrupt Ministers are in for a rough ride, they will honestly be killed & lynched by Zambians in front of State House the way Gadaffi of Libya was killed or if they are luck they will be chased the way evil UNIP dictator was chased in 1991.

    When i comment about Sata to be overthrown in whatever way, paid up & Ministers/PF cadres using govt resources on the internet react in a negative way.

    We have never experienced Mealie Meal shortage before since 1991 not even when Zambia had Maize shortfall!

    Very soon spontaneous riots will start that will cage Sata & all his corrupt PF leaders

    • Zambians are not as stupid as you think we are. Your analysis about the condition of Zambia is faulty. Please stop refering to the president as dictator. A dictator cannot allow people like HH who are constatly insulting him to go free. HH calls Sata as having no brains. He called him Chimbwi no plan. Sata has let HH go without him retaliating. HH and Mumba are pushing the envelop. They are both abussive and a pain to Zambia’s democracy. Yet Sata has not dictated over them. There is no negative declaration of governance that Sata has made.

      As for mealie-meal, you should learn to fend for yourself. Government does not manufacture maize, People, you and I should manage our food and rations. When we fail, and if the government fails to help us manage, we shall voice out. We are not damn.

But that does not remove the fact that RB is lying and it should not take him 2 years to respond to statements made in September 2011. Of course RB is an agel to you and I have no quarrel with that. please keep on telling yourself that. Also keep on telling yourself that MMD will bounce back. I do not hate RB, HH, or Mumba. I only hate what they represent. RB – corruption and deceipt. HH – godlessness and atheism. Mumba – having the form of godliness but denying the power thereoff. Mumba takes the name of the LORD in vain.

      As for you two. You may call Sata, who was annointed by God to lead Zambia, names. But it would remove from the fact that he is leading Zambia. 2016 God’s will will prevail.

      U are not even aware that Sichinga apologized to Zambians over the issues, u have stopped to think with your brains now u think with anus & stomach!

    • @ Shaka Oz. Check your facts HH is an Occultist and he will never enter in a Church or talk about God. Have you ever heard him call upon the LORD of Hosts?

      Mumba has love mammoth more than GOD. He declared it when he was veep. The God removed his favour and all he touches now turns into sour grapes. Look at MMD before and after Mumba.

      When the country was mourning, a pastor was supposed to offer comfort. But not Mumba, he was in SA fighting for Zambia to be blacklisted. The pastor sent thugs to bit up Kachingwe. Tell me is there is any godliness in all these. At the rebranding retreat in Chilanga se preacher that perception is better than reality. The Bible teaches about wolves (reality) in sheep skin (perception). The man has lost it. He needs repentance.

  12. RB is a World Statesman not mentioning Zambians statesman. A very innocent man who has been justified innocent by evil Mmembe & Sata’s evil leadership & open tribal corruption in Zambia

    Unlike Rupiah Banda, corrupt evil Dictator Sata will be prosecuted before he even leave State House, not mentioning Lusaka

    Am just happy that Zambians hatred towards PF & Dictator Sata & his corrupt Minister’s deficient leadership style is building high up at a very high speed no one will stop it until it will explode in Sata’s face

    Sata is a petty man with an inferiority complex, the man can not be saved by anyone.

    Sata is a failure as every Zambian can see Mealie Meal, Fuel, Farming input shortages & Zambians queuing for essential commodities like in the communist UNIP KK’s days.

    • Only lossing MMD cadres and their relatives hate Sata. They think he put closed their endless treassure hole for them. Shaka Oz, soon your RB state funded computer will breakdown and we shall hear from you no more.

      Who is more a failure? The failure who loses an election from a failure or the failure who wins an election from a self proclaimed statesman? Now the statesman says I condeded without persuassion. Come to Zambia and face the Zambian’s whom you want to expel from commonwealth. The Zambian’s whom you are depriving the rule of law to prevail on your son James.

      Surely Zambians queuing for Mealie Meal, Fuel & Farming inputs shortages in Solwezi, Chipata, Lundazi, Kasama u call these Zambians losing MMD cadres & that they like Sat who is causing the misery they are suffering from?

      U are insulting Zambians! This how insensitive u animals PF kaponyas can be! U have no emotions & u think Zambians who are complaining are MMD cadres

      How can a Zambian who never experienced shortages of Mealie Meal, Fuel & Farming inputs like Sata?

      U really need change in u psychopathic heads. Otherwise u will wake up one day when Zambians will be on the march to State House to Lynch & kill Sata & all his evil ministers

    • Ba Shaka Oz, There are shortages of commodities in Zambia. You resort to insulting and hating the president. This is the damnest thing I have ever seen or heard. What solutions have you provided. I am sure you do not expect Sata to provide a solution since you have despised him as a psychopath, brainless dictator. A political problem is soved polically. A financial problem is solved financially. An economic problem economically. Commodity shortage by commodity provision and not insults and hate. The only Zambians insulting the president are you, the MMD and UPND cadres. The PF cadres are also suffering from the shortages and are not happy. But hate and insults will not put food on the table or fuel a car. Grow up. Be constructive. MMD will not bounce back just deal with it or forever cry.

      You have a very low IQ. U imbecile. Am not talking about MMD bouncing back neither am i an MMD nor UPND cadre, Your answers are very childish & they can just be compared to MASEBO & Kabimba’s low IQ child who was sent to Zambian Embassy in Japan.

      Zambians are not facing perennial political nor economical problems. These is the first time Zambians are lining & queuing up for Mealie Meal & Fuel. Which only happened in communist Eastern Europe or countries undr sanction like Zimbabwe.

      Zambia is not under sanction mind u?

      U ignorant low IQ PF animal, Sata & his incompetent tribal ministers are the ones who has created all these for the first time in the history of Zambia since Zambians removed another evil UNIP Dictator KK in 1991!

      Sata need to solve these problems since he has created them himself. There are no political issues in Zambia its Sata who has created them.

      Just imagine your prostitute PF mother queuing for Mealie Meal & being pushed by guards & taken advantage of? Its not a good thing to pass through.

      Only Sata likes to make Zambians suffer like this because he is a sadist

    • But Ed, can you explain to me why these commodities are ALL in short supply? Who is responsible for it? We should not have to advise Sata because the has f*kn Ministers employed for that purpose. He appointed failures and thieves who are hounding out the hard-working amongst their ranks, and guess what birds of a feather do? I would ascribe to the brainless dictator idea too because no right thinking president sits back,laughs and insults when he turns on his own words that he said in promise to his people, doesn’t see anything wrong with the state of the nation under his rule but is very happy to blame his predecessors, using the police like bloodhounds and borrowing money with no real plan for repayment. We are not all daft like you ED, we wanted change for the better.

      U animal PF kaponya! Do u call these hardworking?

      U are very insensitive evil pig who because u have free govt computers & internet to use & waste off do not evn understand what an ordinary Zambian struggle is!

      No wonder Sata increased his salary the first thing before he did anything for Zambians even when they were experiencing mealie Meal shortages & with empty stomachs.

      U will end up provoking Zambains to take to the street & lynch u from State house & lodges

He allowed chinese guys to shoot , kill and insult Zambians as if they were dogs. I feel so sick to see RB open his mouth. Let him just keep quiet, thats why we removed him coz he could not protect interests of Zambians. Shame on him.

      & What is Sata doing u animal like Sata?

      Dictator Sata is even gone further than that; He is a proclaimed communist who sent Injustice Minister Kabimba to communist autocratic dictatorial govt in Cuba & Sata will be going to China as a proclaimed communist to address the Chinese media.

      Mind u moron chimpanzee, Sata has never addressed Zambians journalists nor Zambians at large but he is going to China.

      Communists do not understand the language of language of democracy like just u Sata has failed to adjust to democratic way of life from the way he used to run opposition PF the communist way.

      Sata is just evil.

      Just wait, it is just too early for Zambia to experience Mealie Meal, Fuel & Farm input shortages so early.

  17. RB is doing good work now and possibly representing Zambia well out there. But he was not a good leader. He encouraged corruption and even weakened lwas that were put in place to check the practice. He cared little about the counrty. He sold Zamtel for a song. He was about to sell all GRZ schools and hospitals. God saw this and intervened.
    Sata has reversed a lot of these negatives and is now starting activities that will improve poverty levels in the country. Bitter people do no see this. All they know is condemn him and offer no solutions. They even forget, the president works with several other people, and most of them are far learned and experienced tnat the bitter bloggers. If things remain as they are now, PF would still remain the best option in 2016.

  23. Why is so much effort being expended trying to WHITEWASH RB’s corruption and shortcomings when he was in office? If he is such an Angele, he surely doesn’t need to convince anyone of this. Zambians are perfectly capable of remembering the “good” things he did and graciously thank him for it.

    Nonetheless, trying to LAUNDER himself might work among the international community, but it surely will never suffice with Zambians who lived through the short but intensely corrupt three years of RB’s rule.

    As the saying goes; “The best defense is an offense!” And all you have to do to realize that this is the strategy at work here is to simply listen to his rabid lawyer (Armstad…) and MMD cadres speak!

There are few bloggers who want the right thing to be done instead of Zambia wasting more money on prosecuting a non-winnable case. Imagine the Courts and State prosecutors dedicating their time to a lost cause like it was in the ftj situation. You can cry all you want that Chiluba was wrongly acquitted well if the court says so then he is free.

The only stars on ZNBC were Rupia Banda, George Kunda, Dora Siliya Bums, Ronnie Mphuno Shikapwasha and heads of fake NGOs like Kalonde, Siulapwa, Chifire, Lifwekelo etc. It so happened that Zambians were able to dispell this bull fart from Shrek.
