ECZ suspends election results announcement and asks cadres to refrain from violence while waiting

Headlines ECZ suspends election results announcement and asks cadres to refrain from violence...

Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) Chairperson Justice Irene Mambilima has suspended the announcement of election results from constituencies.
Justice Mambilima told a media briefing this morning that this is to avoid influencing voting in the 51 polling stations that are voting today across the country.

Justice Mambilima said the commission has faced unprecedented challenges in the conduct of the presidential election due to the unfriendly weather resulting in some areas having not voted yesterday because they where inaccessible by road.She explained that in some constituencies only two polling stations could be accessed by road.

Justice Mambilima said the Commission has made a decision that it would not be appropriate to give out the tally of the results so far verified because of the other voters who are voting today.She said those voting today should vote with a free mind unhindered by speculation of who is the leading and trailing candidate.

Justice Mambilima said the commission will only release the tallies of the results after people in areas where voting is going on today have voted.
The 51 polling stations where voting is being conducted today are in Mafinga, Kaputa, Mitete, Lukulu West, Senanga, Kapoche, Chama North, Chama South and Limulunga.

And Justice Mambilima has advised the UPND and PF to cage their cadres.Justice Mambilima did not mince her words when she categorically stated that it is only PF and UPND cadres that would resort to violence as results are being awaited.She has further advised against premature celebrations by political parties before all the results have been declared by the commission.

Meanwhile PF candidate Edgar Lungu has taken an early lead in Kasama district.According to the results obtained this morning, 49 out of the 50 polling stations from Kasama Central Constituency have so far been counted putting Mr. Lungu in the lead at 11, 509 votes, followed by the UPND candidate Hakainde Hichilema who is trailing at 3, 439 votes.

The UPND has taken a lead in Solwezi Central Constituency poll results with the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) taking the second place.The UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema polled 14, 737, PF’s Edgar Lungu polled 4,219 while United National Independence Party’s Tilyenji Kaunda came third, with 84 votes.Forum for Democracy and Development’s Edith Nawakwi polled 81, Movement for Multi-party Democracy’s Nevers Mumba 64, Dr. Ludwig Sondashi of Forum for Democratic Alternatives polled 56 while Eric Chanda of the Fourth Revolutionary party polled 39.Elias Chipimo of National Restoration Party got 33, with Godfrey Miyanda of the Heritage party 31 and Green Party’s Peter Sinkamba polled 13 while Christian Democratic Party‘s Daniel Pule got 7 votes.

Statistics from Transparency Internation show that out of 30 constituencies PF leads with 302,590 votes with UPND trailing behind with 168,008 votes.

    • A lot of people do not know HH and what he stands for, it is about time he showed maturity and show he is ‘the one’
      Do not throw your toys out of your pram, in 20 Months, which is what you initially planned, It would actually suit you, to make a momentous assault on the Presidential election.EL, could be the shortest president ever in Zambia. The ball is in your court. You may want to start by replacing your Vice President, who in is a loose cannon, I am referring to Canisus Banda.
      Start by having a team who have influence in other provinces where you are lagging. People Like GBM, Lubinda, even Kabimba, the Post might seem far fetceged but forgoing your ego, they are the people to approach and get rid of Andrew Banda, Mwanawasa who have no influence whatsoever but were positioning…

    • The ECZ are incompetent for me , I do not buy what the High commissioner is talking about.

      Thanks

    • ZWD ahead of the game again and us at LT we follow….the game is only over when the fat lady sings.

    • Tooooooo bad, any way any any any way, we had exciting campaigns.
      Don’t even think of violence, Zambians are allergic to RAINS, no one want to stand in rain and that is why elections are delayed and ONLY 30% of registered voters voted.

    • HH is heading for Victory. Just watch. PF is in trouble. Copperbelt is the only strong and Eastern for PF Lusaka is a swing province. Look at the results so far. HH has really done seroius damage to PF in Copperbelt. Numbers don´t lie. now watch what is to come.

    • My humble appeal to all PF Members and Edgar Lungu in particular is that they should concede defeat just like Rupiah Banda did in 2011 wen he lost to Micheal Sata.

      To say the truth, iam not a PF supporter but I have credible information that Edgar Lungu has lost the elections to HH by more than 100 thousand votes.

      Zambia is a peacefull country and Edgar Lungu will go far in the history of this country as a man who helped bring back peace in the country by quickly conceding defeat.

      My advance congratulations to HH for winning the Presidential Election.

    • ECZ didn’t think of this before announcing the ‘the results thus counted’…goes to show you that ba Mambilima and the lot are just dull!

    • To those that have been smearing Tongas with tribalism, look at the latest voting patterns (from ECZ) for constituencies in the following province:

      Southern province: PF – 30%; UPND – 70%
      Copperbelt province: PF – 80%; UPND – 20%
      Lusaka province: PF – 53%; UPND – 47%
      Eastern province: PF – 64%; UPND – 36%
      Luapula province: PF – 88%; UPND – 12%

      PF scores 30% in Southern province whereas UPND only 12% in Luapula? Who is the biggest culprit here?

      I suggest this nonsense of tribalism should be put aside as we move forward as one Zambia One nation.

    • @Mushota, to understand what the High Commissioner is saying, start by being objective and perhaps buy a brain.

    • Lord, i would careless, they announced and then stopped announcing after they were asked to stop by HH.

      I do not need to decipher that, they are incompetent. They should be proactive.

      Simple as, and Ireen has outlived her usefulness as well.

      These are facts not fictions.

      Thanks

    • Technically speaking Mambilima is under EL’s reporting chain as Justice minister! When we point out that EL should have resigned these positions going into these elections you termed us ‘cry babies’ who are unwise between them and us. Education is a great leveller but you shoot it down. People who have not attained a grade 12 education level should not be allowed to vote. They are a danger to themselves and democracy…debate but don’t insult me.

    • @Mushota- Ireen has done nothing wrong. The facts are that the numbers are just not pouring in for the UPND and this is due to the regionalism they portrayed in Southern Province campaigns. Also, there truly is no answer HH has for the massive rejection he has endured from the Copperbelt. This election is all but over. ECZ has been very professional and that is why they have considered HH’s view that results would be influenced by announcing results (in my opinion it is pointless considering PVT results are being published).

    • SAVE OUR SOUR

      You called us names but lol, we are winning

      ZWD and their descendants must be having diarrhoea and their endorsements must be turning into sour

      Thumb me down please I want to know how many ZWD descendants are still hanging on this blog

    • @Onehitwonder- Let us understand how the Judiciary works; it is independent of the Legislature and Executive. Edgar Lungu has little say of legal issues affecting the country. Ireen has not in any way portrayed favoritism, she is being observed. The reason you see HH storming buildings is because he has acknowledged within himself that the presidency has slipped past him. HH ignored Central Province in his campaigns and that is what is harming him greatly. HH also got the endorsement of politicians who are not very influential. The PF will continue holding a significant lead for the remainder of this election. Not to mention, PF has won Lusaka by 65%.

    • I have just been informed, that Hakainde is 913,810 and Lungu 785,050.
      I don’t trust those numbers but my sister says private tabulation, can someone comment.

      I got those on text message, I can forward if someone cares.

      Personally I think Lungu will probably somehow win.

      Thanks
      BB2014

    • @BIG L…….even those VOTES frm NORTHERN BLOCKS are just ‘cooked figures’ HH did VERY WELL than wht is being put ACROSS. Also if you look at Few ‘STRONGHOLD’ of UPND picked the margins are just ‘cooked’.

      If you dont want Tongas to be part of Zambia tell us. We r read to shed blood if thts wht it will take.

      For 50yrs we ve waited dont take us for fools. WE WILL FIGHT till we bring the GLORY to the dead Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula.

    • @1.8 Reality stop your lies and wait for the official results. What do you say to these official results?

      Pemba – UPND 13,338, PF 203
      Mpika Central – PF 7,212, UPND 572

      I rest my case.

    • I appeal to all of you to just keep calm and carry on with your lives. These elections are over and another one will be held in 20months. ECZ will announce the official results and that its that simple. All this bickering will take us nowhere while these politicans will continue to live a life of luxury- win or lose. So why not use all this energy you spend on unproductive politics for the good of your own family and community? Don’t get sucked into the hype and let God lead.

    • As usual, LT bias is manifested in the mention of TIZ’s figures in the thirty constituencies counted yesterday which were by and large PF strongholds. TIZ has updated its figures that now show UPND with an unassailable lead of over 150,00 with almost all votes counted as at today. Lungu has lost this election because HH made a better showing in Lungu’s strongholds while Lungu failed miserably in HH’s. This is a reversal of 2011. I will analyse these results when I post under my real name.

    • Gary Nkombo caught insulting Zambians when it became inevitable that the UPND had lost the election.
      Last month, Nkombo was accused on insulting Minister of Youth and Sport Chishimba Kambwili in Parliament.

      ONE EDGAR…..

      i thank you

  1. You guys are really behind…the current stats are UPND 1,053 and PF 896. You must have checked TIZ reports early in the morning before they received results from Eastern and Southern

    • @chanda Chilengu

      Kanshi where are you getting those figures from. Been to TIZ site but am not able to find the figures you guys are referring to.

      Am I supposed to tally manually or vhat? I mean vhat!

    • This is no joke bane…..don’t bundy around numbers that are not verified.

      Aren’t you fearful of the dreadful consequences of heightening hope from malicious speculation?

      Zambia is One Nation and I do not want confusion…

    • The results from Transparency International Zambia show that out of 30 constituencies PF leads with 302, 590 votes with UPND trailing behind with 168,008 votes. These 30 constituencies are mostly PF strongholds. Meaning HH has harvested 168, 008 votes from PF’s farm before he can start harvesting from his own farm. Meanwhile, there are about 130 constituencies remaining and most of them are UPND’s strongholds and others which UPND ransacked from PF. If you are a PF cadre, you should be worried that your strongholds (30 constituencies) have just given you 302, 590 votes. HH will win. Just wait and see. My advice is that, Ukutangila pa ZNBC TV bashifwe tekufika.

    • @Mpasa- do not be misled, the largest constituencies in Southern Province have been included. Copperbelt is yet to be concluded, Muchinga Province is not even counted yet. Lusaka has rejected HH, with margins of 20,000 in Mandevu etc. This is not promising. Edgar Lungu has won this election. Denial is not healthy for the heart!

    • @2.1 Pretty – Go to facebook.com/tizambia – all the data is there and up-dated as results come in.

  2. Even tomorrow they will lose, breaking news, Hon. EC Lungu, to step-down as minister of defense and home affairs, to assume as H.E EC Lungu.

    • Technically speaking Mambilima is under EL’s reporting chain as Justice minister! When we point out that EL should have resigned these positions going into these elections you termed us ‘cry babies’ who are unwise between them and us. Education is a great leveller but you shoot it down. People who have not attained a grade 12 education level should not be allowed to vote. They are a danger to themselves and democracy…debate but don’t insult me.

    • @Pretty
      TIZ has a facebook page but they only have results for 30 constituencies so far. The other figures are coming from TIZ sources i guess.

  3. And most of these results are from PF strongholds of CB, Lusaka and north provinces. Please PF Dont start celebrations yet as HH has won this election.WATCH the Space.

    • Lol. Do not be misled, the votes in Southern Province, Western Province and N. Western Provinces cannot eclipse the major votes for the PF in Lusaka, Copperbelt and the rest of the country. Wherever HH is sitting, he is wondering; “where can other votes come from other than from these three provinces?”

  4. i just wanna salute justice Ireen Mambilima for being a non partisan and herd the concerns of that complained coz this was psychologically going to affect electorates who’ve not yet cast tier votes in our cousins’ strongholds

    thanks-

  5. My humble appeal to all PF Members and Edgar Lungu in particular is that they should concede defeat just like Rupiah Banda did in 2011 wen he lost to Micheal Sata.

    To say the truth, iam not a PF supporter but I have credible information that Edgar Lungu has lost the elections to HH by more than 100 thousand votes. HH got 45% while Edgar Lungu got 37%.

    Zambia is a peaceful country and Edgar Lungu will go far in the history of this country as a man who helped bring back peace in the country by quickly conceding defeat.

    My advance congratulations to HH for winning the Presidential Election.

    • Lol, you guys are just desperate now. Edgar Lungu has won the elections. Southern Province has been counted materially. Eastern Province, not really concluded. Copperbelt has really injured UPND. Oh and Lusaka has gone PF’s way too. It is a done deal.

  6. I conceed defeat, as a party we might start looking at strategizing for 2016 which is Zambia’s last chance to have HH as president…..

    we missed Mazoka, and now its HH…

    Gary is right….

    • Thats where you are wrong pretty ,its not about money . This is Africa where they choose someone who relates to them and is humble not pompous rich fo.ools

  7. Wow that was sound warning coming from Justice Mambilima that the UPND and PF to cage their cadres. She did not mince her words for sure.

    For those who started celebrating yesterday – you know whom you are – she is advising against premature celebrations.

    Let us wait and see how the elections result will be.

    This will be a long wait.

    Running out of popcorn?

    Viva Zambians
    Viva #peacefulnation.

    • @Pretty, I sounded this warning to PF cadres that their celebration could be short lived. I specifically had a bitter exchange of words with an ***** by the name of Katondo Boys who spent the whole night celebrating on this space. I carefully analyzed what @Reliable Source was posting regarding the voting pattern, then sounded the warning to PF cadres. I give credit to Reliable Source who in the midst of wild celebration by the PF cadres maintained his cool & consistently cautioned against early celebrating. His words are now matching with what the chair of ECZ has spoken today. I was the only one that supported Reliable Source for which I got a disgusting rebuke from the imbecile PF cadres in particular Katondo Boys who seems to be repeating what Emmanuel Mwamba is posting on…

    • @ Shi Mpundu pa nkoloko,

      I saw those comments last nite. @Grand was even asking for our whereabouts and I said am around.

      I was reading the comments yesterday but @Katondo boys comments were so overwhelming that I became anxious. @Reliable source was somehow comforting me and I tried to put up a brave face. 🙂

      Last nite, I thought of the children from poor families who can’t afford to go to school, farmers who suffered to get their payments, HH efforts to reach out to the all Zambians with his message of Hope and Help etc and I said to myself anyway the majority has decided.

      Viva #Peacefulnation

      Viva #TeamHH

  8. And this is the man who used accuse our late President Sata as being a dictator. This is worst desperation order of a losing candidate in an election ever seen.

    Imagine this Satanist HH by Miracle, was president of Zambia, can he honestly accept an election defeat? The fact that the closest his party has come to is number two should not excite him and that Zambians must realize they are dealing with a pure Satanist who should not be taken lightly.

    We implore all peace loving Zambians to denounce this man and his desperate maneuvers.

    Edgar Lungu is the sixth President and NOTHING will change this because people have spoken through the ballot and NOT through comprised MUVI TV opinion polls .

  9. MR MKANDANSENGA watever u call yoself.its foolish to give yoself stupid comfort that HH is winning wen u know thats not true.how can HH win an election wen his just won in 3 provinces?southern,western,northwestern.HH has done very bad on the copperbelt,Luapula,norhtern,muchinga.he’s been beaten with huge margins,while in eastern although he has tried,he has still lost.in Lusaka HH has only tried in Lusaka central,the rest he has been beaten with huge margins.he has even lost central Province.PF has done very well in northen,muchinga and luapula even better than eastern province were Lungu comes from.this shows that PF has broken tribal barriers while UPND has only done very well in Southern HH’S homeland,Western,and northwestern his cousins.UPND must replace HH with a more national…

  10. Am looking for Katondo Boys. He made a fool of himself last night celebrating for results from two provinces.

  11. We told you Anderson Chisala, Jessie Wa Mu Town, Pretty, Blago, Wanzelu, One Hit Wonder and all those chaps who kept insulting Edgar and everyone supporting PF. Well there you have it – Edgar C. Lungu is Zambian 6th President.

    Viva EL Viva PF

  12. Someone tell me; What morals does a man have when he plans to rule a country with monority support;

    Support of only 3 provinces,
    only 28 MPs in parliament.

  13. BREAKING NEWS:

    A credible PVT report conducted by a consortium of civil societies led by TIZ has concluded that Hakainde Hichilema will win the election with a comfortable margin.
    The exist polls that have been collected from all the constituencies minus polling stations that are currently voting give the following results:

    HH 1,101, 900
    ECL 1,013, 889
    Nervous 122, 079
    Edith 98, 244
    Chipimo 67, 071

    HH is ahead by 88,011
    The total registered voters in the remaining polling stations that are currently voting is 21000. Therefore, even if Edgar gets all the votes which is not possible anyway, he wont be able to offset HH’s poll results.

    HH will be the sixth republican president.
    A big congratulations for HH.
    This is my last posting ladies and gentlemen. Thanks for your…

    • Dream on but do not expire from BP when final results are announced. Stay healthy and alive by taking a healthy dose of realism.

    • Indeed let it be your last posting becuase its too dubiuos. Firstly the registered voters in Zambia are 5,166,088. your tally gives 2,403,183 thats a turn out of 46% not even adding the smaller parties. Turn out has been estimated to be around 32% to 35%

    • Wishful thinking! Concede defeat. His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu. Hichilema Hakaivotela. The following are the UPND strongholds Muvi TV opinion polls and Zambianwatchdog

    • @Jojo,

      why sign off? You have to be part of the celebrations. Anyway, have been speaking with reliable sources in Zambia and can confirm your data.

      Viva #peacefulnation.

      Viva #TeamHH.

    • Now that is just desperate. How is that possible when HH’s votes have dried up after Southern, Western and N. Western? Tell us?

    • Your report is very false because actually, considering the turnout, the winner could win with just 700,000 votes. That is the fact. Be logical.

  14. By the time ECZ releases the official results many will have blown their guskets…! The snippets released so far are for people to cool their heels, sober up and think about their next move…. Some of the happenings remind me of one Mwila (MHSRP) who travelled all over the country and thought that the crowds at his rallies would translate into votes, and lol was he disappointed!

  15. …..even those VOTES frm NORTHERN BLOCKS are just ‘cooked figures’ HH did VERY WELL than wht is being put ACROSS. Also if you look at Few ‘STRONGHOLD’ of UPND picked the margins are just ‘cooked’.

    If you dont want Tongas to be part of Zambia tell us. We r read to shed blood if thts wht it will take.

    For 50yrs we ve waited dont take us fool fools.

    • lol… @Andersen Chisala, take it easy. Am not tonga but we as UPND have won. Zambians have won.

      Viva #TeamHH

      Viva #FlightHH2015

    • @Anderson Chisala

      I agree. Relax. Just a little while longer and we will begin popping champagne and katubi. You have been in the trenches with us from the get go. We know, no doubt about it, HH has bagged this election. The end of the nightmare is nigh and PF and it’s assorted thugs will be no more.

  16. You can say whatever you want, but it’s over. Yes the registered voters about 5 thousand plus, but remember there has been a serious voter apathy. Whether you take or reject what I have posted is up to you. Sign me out of here.

    • HH has lost the election indeed. That is merely wishful thinking. HH has failed to arise from the avalanche in Copperbelt of 200,000 votes. It is also safe to say that he has lost Lusaka by 65% of votes. Mandevu, Lusaka Central, Kabwata (we are yet to hear Chawama). Southern, North Western and Western will total about 150,000 votes for HH; this is not enough to recover from Copperbelt avalanche! HH has also lost Central Province as we speak, it really is over. But then again, it never began!

  17. Pretty has pleaded with me not to leave the platform. As a woman I have listened to her, therefore wish to continue especially comforting our friends on the other side who were basking in the frenzy of imagined celebration.
    Just in, HOT FM 87.7 has reported that TIZ has categorically refuted claims made by Emmanuel Mwamba that the organization has collated results showing a big win for Edgar. This is the second denial in less than hours after the National Democratic Institute (NDI) refuted similar claims made by Mwamba. NDI was even more categorical stating that they are not even involved in PVT. Thus, Mwamba who is heavily quoted by some of excited PF cadres on this platform has been discredited and humiliated.
    Le the game continue, am loving it.
    Ichibemba chitila, ukatangila…

  18. @Jojo, If TIZ and NDI have refuted Mwamba’s claims then we can rightly say they have endorsed what MUVI and Zambiawatchdog have reported suggesting that HH will have an edge over Edgar based on their PVT. TIZ has not issued a statement denying what MUVI and Zambianwatchdof have reported. Secondly, if you go back to the speech made by the ECZ chairperson, she said the results from PVT are in the public domain because the results were collected by the observers present at each and every station. However, we have not just officially verified them as official, therefore cautioning early celebration. In other words, do not publish PVT results because others are still voting. Do not celebrate yet because it will jeopardize the voting exercise that is currently going on in some polling stations.

  19. Lol…let people not be wishful. The current gaps may not be recovered. PF is quick approaching the 500,000 barrier. If you know the Zambia electoral map you will concede that N. Western and Western Provinces CANNOT give you 300,000 votes.

    • Are you trying to comfort yourself with a deficiency of wisdom? You are a way too behind @Lord Voldemont. The numbers you are quoting are verified and official results that are in custody of ECZ. Exit polls are suggesting a different picture. Have you heard the PF making any noise now? Have you seen how the police have swiftly removed all the PF cadres that took over Mulungushi Center brandishing pangas? Have you noticed that Guy Scott has toned down? The ECZ chair is collaborating with UPND? And that UPND has issued a statement thanking Zambians for taking part in voting? HH is calm after taking custody of exit polls collected by the PVT team which shows a convincing lead.

  20. My prayer for Zambia is that after the elections, no matter the results, we become united as KK tried so hard for us to be. That we see political opponents as persons interested in developing the country using means we don’t necessarily agree with, and not as evil persons bent on destroying the country.

    That we agree that our diversity, including in political views, is a necessary ingredient to meaningful development. That the issue of tribalism, nepotism, racism and other such vices be treated with contempt they deserve and be weeded out of our minds.

    We as Zambian’s can be better than what we are now. If not for our own sake’s then for the sake of future generations, we ought to work at being better.

    God Bless Zambia!

  21. YOU GUYS ARE VERY DULL. TIZ GAVE RESULTS FOR 30 CONSTITUENCES AT 14:00 HOURS WHEN PF WAS LEADING AT 302,590 AND HH TRAILING AT 168,008. BUT HAVE SINCE ADDED MORE THAN 10 CONSTITUENCES AND PF IS STILL LEADING BY A WIDER MARGIN. PLEASE GO TO TIZ FACEBOOK, THEY ARE UPDATING EVERY MINUTE. AT EVERY 30 CONSTITUENCES THEY WILL BE GIVING A SUMMARY. SO PF IS LEADING EVEN AFTER 43 CONSTITUENCES HAVE BEEN COUNTED.

  22. (HH) control yourself badala. These last kicks of a tse-tse fly infected sleeping cow you are displaying will taint your infant legacy.
    Don’t be unruly Hingombe Hilede (HH). Tame that cane rat William Banda and accept defeat if you don’t win.
    We shall also accept if we lose.
    Retire peacefully if you shame UPND with loss again.

  23. OFFICIAL AND CREDIBLE ELECTION RESULTS UPDATE:
    How it all started in the early hours of today 21st January, 2014
    =================================================
    I have added two critical pictures here to give you detailed insights.
    PF set for victory
    Edgar Lungu’s surprise alliance with ex-President Banda – which may involve major policy compromises – should carry the day at the polls
    The presidential candidate of the governing Patriotic Front, Edgar Lungu, has surprised Zambians by joining forces with former President Rupiah Banda, whose Movement for Multiparty Democracy was defeated by the PF in the 2011 general elections. After unexpectedly being obliged to stand down as a candidate, Banda has put the MMD’s massive store of campaign materials – including four helicopters…

    • @Pretty, never mind the posting by Katondo boys. He has lifted Emmanuel Mwamba’s posting on facebook word for word. This guy Katondo boys as Shi Mpundu mpankoloko puts it is a joker. He is merely parroting what his PF propagandist Mwamba is waffling. Mwamba has been disowned by EU, NDI and TIZ for wrongfully attributing statements to these credible organizations. If you have somebody like Katondo boys crawling behinf Mwamba then there is something wrong with that individual. He may need a psychiatric evaluation. It is all written, it’s over for Edgar. What the UPND team is now doing is guarding the votes that have been graciously given to them by the good thinking people of Zambia. A UPND anti rigging squad has been dispatched to all areas to ensure that the results are not tampered…

  24. I know PF cadres wont like this, but they have to take it even if it is bitter to swallow.
    HH this morning met with the chair of ECZ in a closed door which PF officials wanted to snoop in. After the meeting, landmark decisions were made and HH was seen walking out smiling. Guy Scott was also quick to order ZAF to allow UPND anti rigging choppers fly the skies of Zambia to reach other parts of the country that are still voting.
    Now here is the statement from UPND:

    STATEMENT:REMAIN CALM AS CORRECT RESULTS WILL BE COMMUNICATED –UPND Image builders

  27. ECZ ITSELF IS A RIGGING MACHINERY WITH MAMBILIMA BEING THE MAIN RIGGING TOOL THERE. WE SHALL NOW STOP VOTING IN ZAMBIA BECAUSE IS PROVING A MOCKERY. A FEW GLUTTONS ON OUR LAND KEEP IMPOSING LEADERS ON US. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THESE ELECTIONS WERE RIGGED BY USING ADSORBENT BALLOT PAPERS WITH IMPREGNATED CHEMICALS TO CHANGE THE X MARK MADE BY A VOTER TO BE ACTIVATED AGAINST THE INCUMBENT’S NAME. LUNGU DID THIS ARRANGEMENT WHEN HE STARTED VISITING SOME CROOKED COUNTRIES ON AFRICA TO BE INTRODUCED TO THIS CRIMINAL ACT. LUNGU SHOULD BE CAGED BECAUSE WHAT HE DID IS CRIMINAL! ABASH LUNGU ABASH PF. ABASH XAVIER CHUNGU AND ALL THE OTHER CROOKS!

  28. HaPretty, calm down you will have a heart attack… Reacting to every post is a cyber fight you can not win.

    The fact is EL is leading in 7 provinces; CB, Lsk, Luapula, NP, Munchinga, EP and CP by decent margins. HH can win SP, NW and WP by 100% and still lose. This is fact and not fiction.

    • @PanAflicanist,

      God forbid. KAtondo boys was hanging his laundry and you didn’t ask him to calm down.

      Have a reliable source in Zambia who has confirmed data.

  29. TIZ cautions the public against misleading media reports and invites people to visiting their websites or facebook page for accurate information. **** , According to official results posted on TIZ facebook and collaborated by results from ECZ just before tallying was suspended PF Edgar Lungu polled 302,590 while UPND HH has 168,008

    i thank you

  30. Hope you will be able to recuperate from your frustration and bitterness after recording an early lead last night. This is a game of politics.
    Remember, ukatangila tekufika bane.
    HH is now preparing his inauguration speech and is sitting in the comfort of his luxury house in the upscale township of Kabulonga.
    It’s done.

    Bye, I need my hot coffee now.

  31. I’m waiting till the results are called formally. I am calm. Should HH win, I’ll be pleased. Should Lungu win, I still feel that we have brought issues to the fore that may never have been addressed.

    The Me-Too agenda should be implemented, the chief justice issue should be resolved (Ireen Mambilima), nepotistically appointed diplomats recalled, the innovative economic empowerment ideas should be heeded, chiefs….etc

    In other words, don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. There is a lot to be gained from the pow-wows we’ve had in here and other media outlets. There have been brilliant ideas espoused here, confirming the wealth of knowledge that Zambians everywhere have.

    Madam Justice Mambilima, carry on.

    • Nice to “see” you.

      It’s turned out to be a long wait. But am holding onto hope. Hope for the disadvantaged.

      Unofficial results from a PVT in Zambia are putting HH ahead of EL.

      We just have to wait.

      Viva Zambians.

    • @Pretty

      Hello Pretty, my dear. It’s good to see you too. I know you’ve continued to fly the flag as always on here.

      Indeed we continue to hope and await the final count.

      ‘See’ you soon!

    • Hahahaha..Jessie and the rest of TEAM DELUSIONAL..heheh looks like your uncle HH isn’t want Zambians want..well you and him certainly share one thing in common and that is MISPLACED CONFIDENCE..I told you to get out of DREAMLAND but a chap like you cursed with low IQ is like a drug addict but in your case you are hooked to stupidity..oh and how is the chill zone??? Anyway us in Team EL are just counting the hours our reps have confirmed just as Transparency International has that our candidate is ahead so far that your uncle HH has all but lost…shame badaala but you send me your address I’ll mail you a pack of used toilet tissues for your tears..POOR YOU!!!!
