The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has disclosed that it will consider transmitting presidential election results through fax from all the districts to the national results centre in Lusaka.

Earlier, the ECZ has planned to transmit the results electronically using a digital system.
ECZ Director Pricilla Isaacs said bad weather has hampered the operations of the commission and affected its network for the digital transmission of results.

Addressing a press briefing at Mulungushi International Conference Centre this afternoon, Ms. Isaacs said her organization has no control over the weather which has led to the late commencement of the presidential poll in some parts of the country.

She said if the network challenges continue to persist, ECZ will use the parallel transmission of results by fax machines from the districts backed by hard copies from returning officers.

Ms. Isaacs has meanwhile told journalists that ECZ has made progress in delivering election materials and staff to the 72 polling stations that had not yet received the items when voting in the rest of the country opened at 06.00 hours today.

She said out of the 72 polling stations that were affected, 34 stations had by this afternoon received the election materials.

She said efforts were being made to ensure that the remaining polling stations in Mafinga, Chama, Petauke, Rufunsa, Mitete, Lukulu and Mwinilunga districts receive the materials so that voting can commence immediately.

Ms. Isaacs has since commended the Zambia Air Force (ZAF) for working tirelessly in the midst of bad weather to deliver the election materials.

She described the voting process across the country as progressing well adding that voters were turning up to vote despite the heavy rains.

And Ms. Isaacs has brushed off claims by opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema that late delivery of ballot papers to his strongholds in Western and Northwestern provinces was a ploy to defraud the electoral process in favour of the Patriotic Front candidate, Edgar Lungu.

She explained it was the heavy rains that delayed the deployment of election materials in the named areas.

She has since assured voters that started voting late or are yet to start that they will be given the standard twelve hours period of voting which was allocated to all other polling station in the country.

Ms. Isaacs said results of the poll are expected to start filtering into the national results centre, which is Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka, at 23.00 hours while the final results will be announced by Friday 23rd January 2015.

  1. No faxing. Announce them at the respective polling stations then we can piece them together ourselves. That’s how RB failed to rig the last election.

    • REUTERS NEWS AGENCY REPORTS…

      And here I quote Reuters Jan 20, 2015..

      “LUSAKA (Reuters) – Voting began on Tuesday for the next president of Zambia, one of Africa’s most promising frontier markets, in what shaped up as a tight race between a populist lawyer and a wealthy economist.

      Edgar Lungu, leader of the ruling Patriotic Front (PF), is seen having a slight edge over main rival Hakainde Hichilema, a businessman whose United Party for National Development…”

      It goes on to say…

      “With no reliable opinion polls, few experts are keen to call a clear winner in the contest to succeed President Michael Sata”..

      To all UPND supporters guys reality check..this is the international media reporting that PF is actually gonna win.

    • @LLoyd Banks,

      That is so very welcome. Have you joined the anti-rigging squad?

      Viva for fair and free elections.

      Abash rigging machines.

    • ECZ do what is right as you don’t owe anyone anything but integrity and the donor community is watching. If the will of the will speak then Mr HH you have to bow down and call it quits. With the kind of money you have, I would consider opening a bank called HH Farmers Development Bank (HHFDB) you would make a killing and still give out the cattle loans and become the biggest magnate in Southern Africa. I will come and have a word with you Sir win or lose.

    • @2020vision,

      instead of desperately repeating your message from “RUETERS” I suggest you ask LT to put it up on a page. That will definetely calm your nerves.

    • This is a case of poor planning by ECZ. They knew the type of weather they would be dealing with and should have put in place contingencies to ensure that ballot boxes reach polling stations early in the day despite the weather. That is why they are heavily funded and should not give any excuses. They did not have to wait for afternon to react to the weather. Results from stations voting after dark will not be representative of normal situation especially with the anticipated apathy as people would have gone back to their homes leaving only a few to cast their vote.

    • You know I’ve read HH like an open book. He know is going to lose these elections.What he is doing is merely coming up obviously with a reason for UPND to readopt him as their candidate for the 2016 elections and one of the only excuses he can legitimately use is that the elections were rigged but knowing dull, brain dead zombie UPND supporters they probably will change their constitution to allow this loser to stand again..my word if he does which I doubt, chances are he will resign (as I predicted earlier) after sobering down once results are announced) but fellow bloggers it”ll be his 5th attempt at the Presidency and if he loses again which he is likely to he might just get a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most failed attempts at a Presidential election!

    • @pretty. I am a die hard PF supporter and would love to see them win but in democracy, the majority wins. If my brothers and sisters in Zambia say they want HH to win, then it should not be taken away from him. Rigging is a danger to our peaceful Nation and it should be stopped at all cost.

    • Does not make sense. ECZ cannot say they failed to obtain a simple 5 day-weather-forecast and plan in advance. This is rain season in Zambia, how does an institution like ECZ fail to factor in the weather aspect?!

    • @pretty you know I actually did put up a link but it was removed I’m sure its a policy not to allow URLs of other sites. Anyway The “Reuters” article is there for all to read as I’m sure some of you already have.Just go on their site and YES I AM TAKING IT EASY, I’m on my 5th round of mosi..just taking in everything that us in TEAM EL predicted and the celebrations haven’t started yet though I know EL is winning but we will wait …more predictions are coming through…@wanzelu where are you hiding???? On the same issue of the international media reporting what we in Team EL already knew and that is EL is winning as mentioned in another thread.. watch Al Jazeera’s report on the elections where they in clear audible English say “Edgar Lungu of the Patriotic Front is the favourite”

    • BA LUSAKA TIMES I BEG YOU NOT TO REMOVE THIS LINK, KINDLY ALLOW THE DOUBTING THOMASES TO READ FOR THEMSELVES AN ARTICLE FROM A WORLD RENOWNED AND GLOBALLY TRUSTED NEWS AGENCY AND NOT A THIRD RATE TV STATION BY THE NAME OF MUVI TV..BLOGGERS THIS IS THE REUTERS LINK TO THE ARTICLE THAT MENTIONS EDGAR LUNGU AS BEING THE EXPECTED WINNER POSTED ABOVE..

      http://af.reuters.com/article/topNews/idAFKBN0KT18D20150120

    • Graduate of Robert Mugabe, Paul Kagame and Nigerian Rigging Schools, Edgar Lungu is deftly proving to be the new master of the game. His well-oiled rigging machine is invincible. Zambians are once more, out of luck. Congratulations EL for a perfectly staged rigging job.

    • My Phone is jammed with questions and concerns and that famous word “update”
      We are so far doing very well across many parts of the country. A sample of some results counted so far show a good picture for the Patriotic Front.
      We are doing very well in Eastern, Lusaka, Copperbelt, Luapula, Northern and Muchinga provinces. Some parts of the Central Provinces Like Kabwe and Kapiri urban also show good results.
      But however hold your fire. let’s wait for results from ECZ and from the various Parallel Voter Tabulation NGOs and ourselves.
      And please note that the results will remain provisional or unofficial until ECZ confirms them.
      Out of 6456 polling station, voting started late in about 74 polling stations and voting might continue up-to tmrw in those affected areas

    • Kasenengwa and Mkaika in Eastern Province have voted overwhelmingly for HH. More to come. Solwezi landslide as well in favor of HH.

  2. cry baby hh,whatever mode ecz uses,hh will cry foul.Loser is what you are badala.You will forever win online elections and cooked up opinion polls,as for real elections,no way.

    • mr rupia banda and nevers mumba are lovers; last time I saw them getting the honeymoon suite at Pamorzi hotel, then suddenly there was some serious screaming on the 6th floor. we believe mr banda then successfully penetrated his big black rod into nevers and nevers started preaching gospel while making out; in all this action HH was seen kneeling and taking a headder from voda lungu’s pants in the next room. Evans Mfula at Evaduco Reporting live from Lusaka suburbs

    • Lets until ever head is counted.PF hold your fire.Election in Zambia have lost meaning as they have been reduced to Tribal head count.

  3. These elections are a shame! Why is PF using ZAF planes when Edgar Lungu still holds the defense & justice ministerial positions?
    Its undemocratic mannerism for Lungu not to relinquish his positions of authority in govt.
    Shame!

    • @ skeleton
      True. In the spirit of fairs they should have let EL step down from Defence.
      Now zaf grounds opposition helicopters at last minute with no viable alternative. Win should be not only fair but be seen to be fair and unbiased, where all efforts are made and seen to be made towards making the playing field level. What we don’t want is anything that with bring chaos and arnachy, that should be our collective concern. Now when other candidates start saying it’s unfair how can we convince them otherwise in such circumstances?

    • @Skeleton @Alfred Bulaya I agree with both of you and wish to state it is indeed a shame.

      All hope is not yet lost until the final whistle is blown.

    • Kasenengwa and Mkaika in Eastern Province have voted overwhelmingly for HH. More to come. Solwezi landslide as well in favor of HH.

    • Crying as usual. No longer pompous. Didn’t your Moses say he has already won and nothing can be done? Under fives, conceding defeat like a child in a wet diaper, through crying..

  4. “Ms. Isaacs said her organization has no control over the weather which has led to the late commencement of the presidential poll in some parts of the country”.

    I find this statement stu.pid… didn’t ECZ know that this is rain season? Why is ECZ acting surprised as if it rained in June?

    • Stop being stuupid iwe, she is right and besides they could not have delivered the ballots earlier for security reasons and avoiding the same you people claiming rigging in advance. Everybody knows it is rain season and must expect delays in the delivery process. But the goodness is that the people will be given the stipulated twelve hours to do the voting. So HH should just keep quiet and wait patiently, that is how it is done. We all know he has the best possible chance to win this election.

  5. Mr. Moses Wanomba (HH) is winning these elections by a landslide, according to the opinion poll conducted by the very credible MUVI TV. I mean why panic when it is projected you will win with over 84 per cent of the votes which cannot I believe be overturned through rigging.

  6. I THINK WE SHOULD SUPPORT THE ECZ. THEY HAVE WORKED VERY HARD. YES WEATHER CAN BE UNPREDICTABLE AND DEVASTATING. RIGGING IS OUT. PRISCILAR ISAACS MADE IT CLEAR THAT POLLS WILL BE COUNTED AT THE POLLING STATIONS IN PRESENCE OF ALL REPERESENTATIVES OF POLITICAL PARTIES AND RESULTS SIGNED BY THE POLITICAL REPRESENTATIVES, STUCK AT THE POLLING STATIONS THEN SENT TO LUSAKA FOR TOTALLING AGAIN ACCOMPANIED BY PARTY REPRESENTATIVES. THE TOTALS AT THE POLLING STATION MUST TALLY WITH TOTALS RECEIVED IN LUSAKA. REPRESENTATIVES OF ELEVEN POLITICAL PARTIES MAY NOT ALL FIT IN A SMALL HELICOPTER. BUT ALL VOTES WILL STILL BE RECOUNTED AT THE TOTALING CENTRE IN LUSAKA AND HAVE TO AGREE AND BE CONFIRMED WITH THE TOTALS AT THE POLLING STATION.

  7. ECZ cant Rig infact what UPND should do is to Sincerely trust and Work with ECZ by giving total support.

    As for @Skeleton:- indeed you are a Skeleton in PF we respect the Constitution where does it ask for one to resign their portfolio. A president is more powerful as commander in chief and no one ever resigned for Elections Sake and they use the Encumbrance entitlements. ECL said it we wont use GRZ resources and true to that fact-thus leadership.
    Just Mwawa no Excuse!

  8. Does not make sense. ECZ cannot say they failed to obtain a simple 5 day-weather-forecast and plan in advance. This is rain season in Zambia, how does an institution like ECZ fail to factor in the weather aspect?!

    • “They did not know that you can get 5 day weather forecast. An they have no experience in dealing with this set of circumstances”.

  9. Muvi TV Opinion Polls can’t hold because:-
    1. it is not a Credible Station due to partsan reporting.
    2.PF Supporters / Sympahers noticed 1.) above and realised no need to waste our time.
    3. Muvi TV is not across the country and as such the sampling was poor.
    4.Looking at all above the Poll’s right place is the rubbish Bin.
    It was surprising how a candidate can allude to Opinion Poll as backing him. What No-sense; only a Vote matters.

  10. Ati final results on Friday? But why?

    There has been enough drama already. Do not hold on to results if you can get all of them before then.

  11. Fright HH2015 prepare for bad weather on the copperbelt you may consider an emergency landing at SM Kapwepwe airport in Ndola

    3 polling station in Ndola and 2 in Lufwanyama

  12. Rigging -how? I thought VJ is not with PF but with opposition. The ZWD reported way back that VJ has Twelve(12) tactics he normally use when you ask him to help in these politics of the belly.He originates from another planet. I have therefore advised Honorable Mulyokela to seek help from VJ

    • Iwe counting at polling stations started at at 18hrs, watch the space for more result, make sure you have airtime to call your doctors just in case

  13. I have just gone round polling stations for Mandevu, Munali and Matero Constituencies! ECL is confortably leading! This simply means that ECL is grabbing Lusaka! Ba Kopala start throwing the data! Meanwhile, Castle Juice continues!

    • We can safely say El is comfortably leading on the Copperbelt, in most polling station counted he is leading with other 80% check ”peoples pact page” on faceboob,

      So if EL is leading Lsk and CB were are we in terms of final results?

    • @Shikulu kanyanta, are you a witch? That flag is not Zambian, so how did you tour Lusaka? We need to know. You blogging from outside Zambia and lying that you are a roving reporter. Typical of PF who lied about Sata’s health until he died.

  14. Guys,its not easy to rigg these elections unless all the observers connive and inflate figures,,let alone IT systems you have overated the defense is a sorry sight for us who know whats there!

    The Truth is too much Anxiety for Nothing,,,,When the votes are totalled,they will only be one winner HH or El,,having recieved the voter turn out…an apathy existed in most Urban parts of the country except the rural areas,,,Your Next President is being elected by Rural areas because most of you bloggers have no Ink on your thumbs…The Odds of a Vote split is something PF supporters have to start to worrying about as results come in,,,,if the voter turn out is almost 35p.c…I would rather stop insulting and wait for completion of exercise becuase the final vote may be 100 apart..Tekenyeni..

  15. Mufulira Central, Kantanshi and Kankoyo Constituencies, ECL is leading in all the polling stations confortably! Barman another round please!

  16. Kalulushi, Wusakile, Chimwemwe have all given ECL a confortable lead! Come on ba Kopala keep on posting the data! Waiting for Nakonde, Chinsali and Mpulungu! Ba upnd start preparing yourselves for Cardiac failures!

  17. Enjoying listening to cengelo. ECL is leading confortably. Where is UPND Revolution win.

    Tomorrow UPND will definately concede defeat. HH has got 10 years to win an election in Zambia

  18. My Phone is jammed with questions and concerns and that famous word “update”
    We are so far doing very well across many parts of the country. A sample of some results counted so far show a good picture for the Patriotic Front.
    We are doing very well in Eastern, Lusaka, Copperbelt, Luapula, Northern and Muchinga provinces. Some parts of the Central Provinces Like Kabwe and Kapiri urban also show good results.

    Out of 6456 polling station, voting started late in about 74 polling stations and voting might continue up-to tmrw in those affected areas.

  19. HH gets Nega Nega in Southern Province with 3442. ECL gets 5.
    Of course tribal vote at play.
    ECl sweeps Copperbelt with a comfortable lead. Specific numbers will follow after I verify with the PVT team.

  20. Kasenengwa and Mkaika in Eastern Province have voted overwhelmingly for HH. More to come. Solwezi landslide as well in favor of HH.

    • Ubeja iwe suntwe! Actually the oposite is true! Almost all polling stations in Kasenengwa and Mkaika have ECL confortably leading. Check your facts mwana correctly before you develop Cardiovascular Accident!

  21. hahahahahahahahaha

    We have won………

    Keep on blogging……HH is very popular online and not with the real voters…

    2015 EDGAR IS EDGAR…….ONE EDGAR,,Waumfwa!!!

    I thank you……..yes yes yes,,,,,,,EL

    • It is not just about winning but about being able to govern the country. Am told the govt coffers are empty.

      Good luck Zambia.

  22. Beware of false Results.
    The Post is posting results on their Facebook page. But e immediately noted serious discrepancies.
    Example; Nega Nega UPND 3042, PF 5
    This is a false results because Nega Nega has 1435 registered voters!!! So where did The Post get 3042.
    So guys be alert. We are alert.
    PF is doing very well on 6 provinces. UPND is doing very well in one province. We are sharing the 3

  23. Updates from Radio Ichengelo is surely bruising those in the so called HH2015 flight! Before day break, surely this flight will break in mid air because the deafening sound from ECL2015 Dreamliner is causing havoc to this small and insignificant plane called HH2015 which has an engine with a single pistone! Look up in the sky and you will see thick smoke all over the southern skies where it took off, hoping against hope that it might land at plot 1! Wishful thinking!

    • The voting pattern is very biased, why??? Are we honestly saying that Tongas are the best and not any other? Look at the strong holds for them, all from their tribal cousins and their own region!!!!
      Democracy yabufi iyi mwe!!!

  24. Data from Mansa, Bahati, Chiengi, Mpulungu, Chinsali, Nakonde and Kasama indicates that Edgar is leading with wide margins while those from Mazabuka, Choma and Monze indicate that hh is abnormally leading but the turn out was low!

  25. I cant see upnd internet voters here! Where are they? Iam pretty sure by tomorrow afternoon, Livingstone General Hospital will be full of people with serious hypertension complications!

  26. We should respect HH for the courage of trying in our country’s growing democracy. However, he should not be spared rebuke for being a lone wolf closed up to counsel. Blogs are a good overt source of valuable data yet he could not take the counsel that he remains with many underlying issues unresolved with Zambia. Xenophobia seen against EL is not a saleable campaign bite. I warned you to to sober up and drive home a mature campaign. We may be blogging yet vastly experienced and schooled. Congrats brother EL you deserve this mandate.

    • Senior Citizen

      Well said my brother….lets all move forward as Zambians and work together,,,,,ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION

      ONE EDGAR IS THE PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA

      i thank you

    • Bakalamba. How many times have we advised brother HH to change his strategy and ditch those leeches around him? All we have had from the likes of Wanzelu et al is insults. You really can’t blame anyone but UPND

  27. WE HAVE WON ROAN CONSTITUENCY BY 70%, CHEERS !
    ==================================================
    I want to thank you all Roan Constituency patriots for bashing the opposition and I appreciate you all for showing me that you still have confidence in me and the PF.
    AS Roan we have no room for tribal politics; and it was good riddance for people like Daniel Munkombwe to drown himself in a tribal clique.
    For the opposition in Zambia to beat the Patriotic Front, they have to work hard and rebrand their parties into national ones with focus!
    AHEAD for Roan Constituency, we are going to do 30KM more of township roads. We are also going to commission the building of a new Secondary (HIGH) School…
    STAY PUT FOR More results as we humiliate tuma opposition.

    • Emmanuel, at one time I thought you where normal. Just are confirming to me your otherwise. Relax Emmanuel and be calm. You’ll have a shock of your life time when EL appoints you Kalabo DC.

    • Iam convinced beyond reasonable doubt that the upnd camp is already disoriented! Aready some polling assistants for upnd in Mandevu and Matero constituencies have even gone to sleep in anguish! God help these diapper politicians!

  28. LETS ALL UNITE AND WORK TOGETHER AS ONE ZAMBIAN BIG FAMILY…..TONGA,LENJE,LALA,LAMBA,NGONI,LOZI,TUMBUKA,
    KAONDE,KACHOKWE,BEMBA,LUVALE,NSENGA,MAMBWE ALL ZAMBIAN TRIBES,,,,,NO MORE TRIBAL POLITICS

  39. Please note that a proper picture is beginning to emerge as declaration of constituencies begins. Polling stations results are not in proper context until they have been totalled and collated at constituency level.
    Here is an example of results that are ready at Constituence level:
    1.Nchanga PF 11,388, UPND 2666
    2. CHIMWEMWE PF 15,214, UPND 3499
    3.CHILILABOMBWE PF 10, 126 UPND 2780

    Katondo boys

    • ati PVT team……Zambians have spoken,,,NAYSAYERS HAVE NO ROOM IN ZAMBIAN POLITICS……WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH A RAISED CLENCHED FIST,,,,,,,,,THIS IS POLITICS MY DEAR

      Please come and joy the celebrations at heroes stadium

      i thank you

  41. Am still collecting results from our PVT and will give you an update soon. Please be patient. Huge chunk of polling stations uncounted are in North Western, Western and a few in Northern.
    Eastern, Copperbelt and Lusaka have all completed and filed the results with our PVT team.

  42. Ba PF dont be excited, you will be very shocked soon. Polls from North Western and Western Provinces havent been reported yet. Southern Province has reported very few so is Central Province. You are merely celebrating Luapula, Northern and Eastern which are all PF strongholds. Wait, ala wina azazinyela

  43. AS we prepare for the Inauguration of Zambia’s SIXTH President, Honourable Edgar Chagwa Lungu, let us all preach peace and unity.
    Let everything that has breath speak one-ness.

    i thank you

    • This is a sweet People’s Victory convincingly sealed with the ruling Mandate delivered to a people’s President one Edgar Chagwa Lungu of the ruling PF.

      No doubt, Brother HH was another worthy and formidable candidate, but unfortunately he fell short of winning the confidence of the majority. As a result, Brother EL is comfortably heading to Nkwazi House as Zambia’s 6th Republican President. It is called democracy.

      This victory has been made possible by the people directly in the campaign, foot soldiers on the ground and i blogosphere. Bravo team!

  44. Congratulations Edgar Changwa Lungu for winning 2015 presidential elections. We already know the results. Live upto the expectations of zambians coz we won’t spare you . Give us a new Constitution as soon as you are sworn in.That will be your weapon to scoop 2016 aswell. I wish you all the best as you begin your new role soon.Be wise and don’t take all those who voted 4you 4granted. Zambians are watching and will be Judges. They have employed you to implement good policies that will enhance their businesses and change their lives for the better. DON’T TURN YOUR BACK on your Employers or they will use the balot in the same vain to remove you from POWER.Congrats once again.

    i thank you

  45. Ala ba Katondo boyz muzadabwa, just wait and see. The math is not adding up for Vodka. HH has won the race with a comfortable. The independent PVT has hinted a big win for HH. You’re celebrating results from Copperbelt, Luapula and Northern. Big wins from other provinces in favour of HH are yet to pour in and absorb Vodka’s small wins. Dont be fooled. Emmanuel Mwamba and Anthony Mukwita have melted away from the social platform. They have already been informed of what is about to come. You’re going to have a shock of your life my dear. Dont just pee and poo in your pants. This is another 2001 elections (Andy Vs Levy). Andy was leading in the beginning sending his fans like you into wild jubilation before Levy’s rural votes poured in. History is repeating itself. This is flight HH2015.

  46. Make no mistake, we have selflessly delivered this people’s victory to EL not to become its cheerleaders, but effective watchdogs that will put the Lungu administration to work and accountable to the people for the common good. Should they fail, we the same foot soldiers that have driven this campaign this far, we will again mobilize ourselves and relaunch a more intelligent and resolute campaign to dislodge them for another people’s party. The motive is to get a people centric government conscious and accountable to the people.

  47. Monze basic polling station

    • YES DNPU HAS DONE A REMARKABLE JOB IN THE SOUTHERN PROVINCE…NO DOUBT,,,,,,,ALL ZAMBIANS ARE AWARE OF THIS,,,THIS IS A FACT…..and for this reason……EDGAR LUNGU IS THE SIXTH PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA,,,,NO ROOM FOR TRIBAL POLITICS…..updated info coming up very shortly…trying to get the figures right first,,,,

      i thank you

  48. STAY PUT FOR More results as we humiliate tuma opposition.

    The current info filtering is that Patriotic Front are headed for a huge LANDSLIDE thumping of the others country-wide.

    PF is doing very well in 6 provinces. DNPU is doing very well in one province. We are sharing the 3

    Out of 6456 polling station, voting started late in about 74 polling stations and voting might continue up-to tmrw in those affected areas.

    Katondo boys

    i thank you

  49. Living stone and Chilanga constituencies, both under PF MPs, have fallen to HH. Edgar beaten by HH in these two constituencies where the MPs come from his party, PF

    • Here is an example of results that are now ready at Constituence level:
      1.Nchanga PF 11,388, UPND 2666
      2. CHIMWEMWE PF 15,214, UPND 3499
      3.CHILILABOMBWE PF 10, 126 UPND 2780

      Continuous Parallel Voter Tabulation! Updated Results!! 23:00hrs PF 24,670 and UPND 14,141! I will update in tens!!

      And kabushi Constituency
      PF. 12,475
      UPND. 2,762

      What Province is Livingstone???

      i thank you

  50. HH has beaten Edgar at State House polling station. At UNZA, too, plus Chilanga constituency. Also parts of Kasama Central constituency. HH is coming out a very strong close second in Lusaka district, a PF stronghold

  51. Unverified results from Western Province and most of Central Province particularly in Mumbwa, Nampundwe, Keembe and all polling stations between Kabwe and Lusaka are showing a big sweep by HH – a margin that will potentially swallow Edgar’s gains on the Copperbelt and Luapula. This is in addition to huge votes collected from Southern Province and North Western Province.
    Edgar is ahead in Northern Province but not with a strong margin as expected. His lead in Eastern Province is equally small – much smaller than what was collected by RB in 2011.

    • #67 My brother, kindly slow down. This election got 6400 polling stations country wide to report on and help you aggregate winning votes from.

      If i may humbly ask you, how much do you know Zambia in particular Kopala, NP, Luapula, Muchinga and EP? Example post results from EP constituencies you have gathered so far so i can help you understand that your report is highly flawed. My friend, i should humbly say am privileged to be one of the patriots that served this country and know Zambia like the back of my hand. I served this country by routinely covering the country for over 18 years stepping in chiefdoms, villages and districts. If my memories serves me right, we have too many polling stations captured in these reported results. i have been laughing at how M’membe is updating.

  52. And what province is Kabushi, Nchanga and Chimwemwe? Just curious, maybe these areas could be in heaven.

  53. And why not commenting on UNZA? Did you miss it or your eyes are hungry for Southern constituencies? No wonder you are Katondo boy.

    • Shi Mpundu pa nkoloko

      Just make sure your data is accurate…..

      Example; Nega Nega UPND 3042, PF 5
      This is a false result because Nega Nega has 1435 registered voters!!! So where did The Post get 3042.
      So guys be alert. We are alert.
      PF is doing very well in 6 provinces. UPND is doing very well in one province. We are sharing the 3

      i thank you

  54. A servant of the people, a humble man, Hon. Edgar Chagwa Lungu is about to stir Zambia into a new dawn…

    “As we go forward and begin the next chapter of our nation’s history, it is my hope that reason and calm prevail over the passions of the moment, that we remember that we are all brothers and sisters living under One Zambia, One Nation. Peace and unity will deliver Zambia a prosperous and successful future, but it is a peace and unity that we must all work for together”. RUPIAH B BANDA

    Katondo boys

    i thank you

  55. Did you also forget about Chilanga? In which province is it?
    Am sure this is the reason you are being ignored on this forum, and only fools like you mr Katondo boy are chorusing with you.
    Kindly engage Reliable Source who is giving us credible reports and assessments not your cadre celebration which is full of stupid and useless funfair. You sound like you are either high on something or mentally retarded.

    • my dear friend…even mentally retarded people are humans just like you……even the dull and the ignorant,,,they,too have their stories to tell……We know DNPU is very good at insults and for this reason HH will never RULE ZAMBIA,,,,I SAY NEVER.

      i thank you

  56. Here is another example of results obtained outside Southern Province:

    CHILANGA CONSTITUENCY:

    UPND 6413, PF 4321

  57. @Shi Mpundu, who is this crap going by the name of @Katondo boys? He needs to come to Canada and stop changing diapers to to the old in USA. I guess he ran away from school and sought economic refugee in USA. He has no life. Just count how many comments he has posted on this forum without taking a break.

  58. How many Southern provinces do we have in Zambia??? why didn’t late MCS create more Southern Provinces? why why

    i thank you

  59. ECZ Director, Priscilla Isaacs says this because of the rainy conditions that have hampered the timely distribution of ballot papers and deployment of poll staff in some constituencies.

    Speaking during a press briefing at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre last evening, Ms Isaacs said voting may be extended in the affected rural areas where heavy rain hindered ballot distribution.

    She said most bridges in rural areas have been submerged putting pressure on the Zambia Air Force which is now servicing more areas than initially planned.

    The commission has contracted Zambia Airforce to distribute and collect electoral material and staff in remote areas not accessible by road or water transport.

    She has appealed to Zambians to be patient and peaceful.

    i thank you

  60. People must look at the Voters register especially Western and North western, HH has no chance he should have atleast taken Lusaka but alas so far PF is winning comfortably in Lusaka, CB, Luapula, Northern, Muchinga and Eastern

  61. I think to expect that HH would win this election is being dangerously disingenuous.

    We have blogged here over the last 3 months why HH and Nevers’ candidacy are failed projects amongst Zambians across the largest voting blocks. Unfortunately, such relevant truth has never been valuable to both HH and Nevers. Instead, in case of HH it has elicited the worst uncultured reaction socked in insults instead of thinking through. Here we are, our professional blogging is being vindicated as EL becomes the 6th President of Zambia barely 1 month in the race. It can never be more sweeter than this.

    Congrats EL you have sealed your Presidency with Zambians.

  62. Naumfwa umwenso Boyz Girlz naumfwa umwenso on behalf of UPND bloggers who’re still talking….

    As predicted EL has taken Lusaka, CB, Northern, Luapula, Muchinga and Eastern. Central is a wild card.

    HH has taken Souhtern, Western and North-western.

    Based on 2011 voters register (per province) my further predictions are as follows:

    CB even with a turnout of 35% of which PF gets 75% of votes is capable of cancelling UPND’s gains from Southern province @45% turnout with HH getting 85% of votes cast.

    Remember according to 2011 register CB has 16% share whilst Southern 12%.

    Lusaka on the other hand will cancel HH’s gains in Western and N/western province. Note that these three provinces’ turnout will be relatively the same; say in range of 30 – 40%.

    Lusaka has 15%…

  63. BA KATONDO 10 BOTTLES OF MOSI INCAPACITATED ME SO I HAVE JUST WOKEN UP…YAYAYAYA..WHAT DID WE SAY??? BA UPND WHAT DID WE SAY…

    AND HERE I QUOTE MYSELF…

    “January 21, it will be announced…Edgar Lungu is leading in the elections

    January 23/24 it will be announced…Edgar Lungu has won the elections

    By the first week of February it will be announced…HH has resigned as UPND president..”

    Ya first let me sober up and then the verbal assault (without insults or swear words) on UPND bloggers will begin..

    BA ZAMBIA WE LOVE YOU!!!!

  64. IF RIGGING ALLOWS LUNGU TO EMERGE A WINNER, THEN ZAMBIANS WILL BE AT WAR BECAUSE WE WILL NOT ACCEPT THESE RESULTS! THERE IS NO WAY LUNGU CAN BE IMPOSED ON US! I VOTED YESTERDAY AND EVERY OTHER VOTER WAS SAYING THEY WERE VOTING FOR ZAMBIA FORWARD WITH HH. NOW HOW DOES LUNGU COME INTO THE PICTURE? WHO VOTED FOR LUNGU TO MAKE HIM A WINNER? WE ARE GOING TO FIGHT BECAUSE WE SHALL NOT REMAIN DOCILE ALLOWING THE SAME PEOPLE TO RULE US OVER THE YEARS. ZAMBIA IS FOR ALL OF US. LET US GET READY FOR WAR!

    • @ Truth
      Which part of Zambia are you in?…they did a Donchi Kubeba on you!…kekekekekekeeeeeeeee utulo ba guy! There is no rigging, just accept whichever way the results will go. Let US get ready for war, whose ”US”?

  65. upnd rally, attend, PF rally attend, UNIP rally attend, Sondashi rally attend, Green Party rally attend and get their regalia, BUT when voting do donchi kubeba. CONGRATUALTIONS HIS ECL, OUR FIRST LADY MADAM ESTER LUNGU,

    MWEBATU FINSHI MULEFWAYA NATWISHIBA FWEBENEE, EDGAR EE LUNGU EEE, LUNGU EYO TULEFWAYA, TWAPWANIKA FINITO!!!
