Edgar Lungu calls for calm in the wake of ECZ ‘s suspension of updates

Edgar Lungu

Patriotic Front (PF) President Edgar Lungu has called for calm among his supporters and the nation in general ahead of the full announcement of the January 20 presidential poll results.

This is according to a statement issued on his behalf by PF Secretary General Davies Chama.

Following a high level discussion Mr. Chama held with the PF Presidential candidate, Mr Lungu advised Zambians that the ECZ’s decision to suspend the announcement of results was at the behest of the opposition UPND president Mr. Hakainde Hichilema who presented a complaint demanding the suspension of result updates until voting ends in some 51 polling stations located in some western parts of the country.

ECZ has extended voting in 51 of the total of 6435 polling stations countrywide.

Mr. Chama said the PF President has called on the opposition leader to not to “panic and act irresponsibly” by not informing his supporters that Mr Lungu is responsible for the suspension of updates by the ECZ.

“Anxiety is rising among our supporters and among his supporters as well who are now reported to be protesting saying that ECZ was planning to rig the vote. The suspension has been done at his request but he has neglected to inform his followers that this development is due to his actions,” Mr. Chama said.

“Despite all these actions of panic from the opposition which are leading to heightened anxieties,” Mr. Chama said, “Hon Lungu is calling for calm from our members. We call upon the UPND leader to advice his supporters to remain calm. We would also like to warn him to refrain from all forms of disorderly behaviour that has the potential to disrupt law and order,” Mr. Chama said.

Mr. Chama observed that as results steadily trickling in results that are in possession of the ECZ, the reality of an impending defeat has dawned on Mr. Hichilema. Mr. Hichilema was exhibiting irresponsible behavior designed to inflame people’s emotions instead of waiting for the results verification process to take its full course.

On Mr. Vernon Mwaanga’s “rigging” warning, Mr. Chama said the word is widely associated with Mr. Mwaanga’s name as the PF has never known its existence since the party was formed in 2001.

Meanwhile the Secretary-General of the PF has clarified that the Parallel Vote Tabulation (PVT) results it challenged TIZ to release was conducted independently by Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) and not by the National Democratic Institute (NDI).

Conversely James Thornton, the British High Commissioner to Zambia has echoed Mr Lungu’s call for calm saying Zambians should patiently await the ECZ announcement of the results tomorrow and maintain peace.

” Also as a party we would like to clearly state that the violence in the recent past, sporadic as it maybe, has at all times been perpetuated by the UPND and not the Patriotic Front. Hon. Lungu has re-affirmed the peaceful nature of the PF which under the late President Michael Sata conceded peace three times. At the expense of sounding monotonous, we would like to conclude by stating that the delay in announcing the results has been necessitated by UPND, not PF. God Bless you all.”

    • KAWALALA,FOUL MOUTHED!HOW DID HIS WIFE FELL WHEN HE SAID NALIKANA UKULALA NANKWE REFERRING TO MASEBO!
      WHAT HUMBLENESS IS THAT?

    • Bloggers EL did not insult Masebo as reported elsewhere. I am not on EL’s side but read the Post of Tuesday 20th (who by the way are not EL’s supporters) where it is reported as direct speech. It was only an insult on the ZWD and of course from all those repeating words that that never were. EL simply said “My wife was asking me why that woman is always on my case…..What did you do to her? I said katwishi kwena ifyo fine ifyo namuchita efyo amfwaila” Seriously ZWD has done more harm than good to HH’s campaign. Ask any zambian linguist,they wont isolate an insult in that statement. Perhaps one John Phiri’s innovation of bringing local languages back will help prevent further related calamities.
      Part of today’s confusion is brought about by people believing in everything they read online

    • @ This is me
      Those were the EXACT words ECL uttered, not what is being reported on ZWD. Okay ZWD, we all know on which side it leans and we all know who the psonsors are. All the same it will not change anything votes were already cast the other day, unfortunately!

    • Wait until he drinks the country to its knees,then you will know the mistake you have made. Wait until he brings in his boko haram colleagues and you and your children are subjected to sharia law. Then we will see who has the last laugh! Us with dual nationalities will be home and dry.
      In fact,trouble won’t be from UPDN,it will be within PF itself. As when they win,they will all be wanting to be given the high posts. The fights and defections will begin again,next week. Harmony now,disharmony among PF leadership. I suspect Mwamba will want to be V.P, so will Inonge and Luo. I foresee 2 vice presidents so as to satisfy everyone if EL wins.

    • UpDn WILL SPLINTER AGAIN MARK MY WORD. SOME UpDn MEMBERS WILL HEAD FOR RAINBOW PARTY WHILE OTHERS WILL HEAD FOR THE PF. HH WHEN HE IS DECLARED A LOSER NEED TO CALL FOR A CONVENTION AND THERE AFTER STEP DOWN. IN A DEMOCRACY YOU CAN NOT HAVE A LEADER WHO HAS LOST 4 ELECTIONS STILL CLINGING TO POWER

  1. 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…

    i thank you

    • Ba Chama tekanyeni ati “Anxiety is rising among our supporters and among his supporters as well who are now reported to be protesting saying that ECZ was planning to rig the vote. ”

      But the pic LT has chosen depicts a person with anxiety. Welcome EL to the school of anxiety.

    • @The Engineer (Australia now Germany),

      lol.

      This is actually serious. Anxiety is dangerous in excess. We were making fun of Cosmo Mumba fainting but am afraid a few will suffer the same fate.

    • @Skeleton continue living in dream land. I hope you are in Zambia and not relying on what the ZWD is fabricating.

    • Its this type of thug language coming from PF that worries us in the UPND. Just look at the way they warning Mr. HH and “his supporters” as if they not a part of Zambia. Its this lack of courtesy and diplomacy that a lot of us detest. There’s a tone of hatred towards HH and UPND by PF which is evil and diabolical to say the least. PF does not own Zambia despite their incumbency. And don’t conclude that HH is losing. PF will be shocked.

    • I like lungue but not much Dacis chama, the way he uses words sometime no so profesional, he should have said ”we advise them” not ”we warn them”
      Lucky that profesonal

    • Zambians have consciously bought your simplicity, reality, humility, temperament, patriotism, agility, maturity, intellect, composure, focused and servant leadership traits. By every virtue they see fresh air of new leadership style in your candidacy. Please accept our conferred mandate of honor to lead and rule our country into transformation. Remember its us the people who have made it happen. Listen to us as your employers for the common good. Its historic 1 month in the race then President.

    • @skeleton I have seen these results on TIZ, now stop lying to yourself and your fellow upnd – There are several EL strongholds which have not been released and there is a difference of about 150, 000 so no matter what happens there is no way HH can bury that gap.

      Another defeat for HH…we told you.!

      Viva EL Viva PF

    • @skeleton, actually that is what has caused HH diarrhoea. He saw those places as his ‘game changers’. Then he looked at the deluge sweeping through from Chililabombwe going clockwise across Zambia up to Feira. Anya nakashi. Sadness befell your man, even Mutinta can’t console him. Kalesasuka-sasuka fye.

    • Hard luck UPND, u make a nice opposition, just wen u knw u cant we, u could not accept,
      you went far calling the future president all ssorts of names,
      He is their, you have all lived to see it so you dont deny u wer not ther.

      EL, the promised one and the coolest, PF is there to stay, stroger than b4

    • @Pretty

      The problem with most bloggers is lack of analysis of numbers…

      When Western, Southern and Nothwestern total results come in people will have a shock….

      The trend is that the MMD vote in most places MMD won in 2011 have gone to UNPD. MMD won Western and North Western. Should these votes move to UPND as the trend is going in places PF lost in 2011…

      A shocker is coming

    • Bola ni panshi ati Ba Maite bawina ichungulo

      ….. after 60 constituencies and 851,818 votes counted

      PF 469,910 (55%)

      UPND 350,023 (41%)

      Balance the rest of the parties.

      The big numbers yet to come from Southern, Northwestern and Western including Central province.

      PF strongholds counted already we are in for a shocker…. don’t tell me i never told you… going to get some more good German beer

    • @Senior citizen
      Zambians have consciously bought your simplicity, reality, humility, temperament, patriotism, agility, maturity, intellect, composure, focused and servant leadership traits. By every virtue they see fresh air of new leadership style in your candidacy.

      That is what you want in the next president,unfortunately Lungu is a hypocrity.His mouth is very foul.Lungu is nikawalala who was once deregistered.as lawyer.
      What freshness are you talking about?Kambwili,Nsanda,Tasinta Luo?
      Ifintu ifya kutumpa ni Lungu.

    • @TheEngineer (Australia now Germany)

      They are pretending to be confident. Guess hoping their “interventions” will work.

      In all fairness, HH had put up a good campaign but I think Zambians have voted along tribal lines. Hope for the sake of those who voted for Hope and Help that HH wins otherwise I feel sorry for the disadvantaged.

      Viva Zambians

    • What ever the result , HH and UPND will not be under pressure like Lungu and PF and MMD.

      If PF wins , it will be expected to deliver on all things people complained about.

      I expect more confusion to engulf the MMD-PF pact because RB’s MPs will expect Lungu to give them senior ministerial positions which the PF stooges endorsed him for. On top of that RB ‘s camp wants relatives of his people appointed in most missions abroad.

      So kaya.

      Lungu has already started sweating and needs a whisky to cool him down.

      Please Scotty give Lungu a whisky before he faints.

      Viva HH.

    • @wanzelu and what of the MMD-UPND pact with the likes of your future UPND president Mutati..some of us see further than !diots like you…your HH is getting the boot for losing HOW MANY TIMES HAS YOUR HH LOST OH YES 4 TIMES, well HH will soon be in the background and Mutati is taking over UPND…WATCH THIS SPACE…AS FOR 2016 PF is certainly taking it AGAIN Just as we predicted we would win 2015 despite having only 3 weeks to campaign come 2016 UPND wont have a chance in hell…

      NOMBA NI EL2016

    • The truth is both PF and UPND have the results through their respective PVTs. And the truth is Lungu has lost because if Lungu won, they would be pushing Justice Mambilima to announce like they did in 2011.

    • @FAKE VISIONARY…ACCORDING TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL WHO HAVE OBSERVERS STATIONED AT ALL POLLING CENTRES PF IS LEADING BY A CONSIDERABLE MARGIN..SO UNLESS YOU ARE SAYING ECZ, TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL OBSERVERS FROM AU, SADC, EU, BRITISH HIGH COMMISSION, INCLUDING INTERNATIONAL MEDIA HOUSES LIKE REUTERS, AL JAZEERA..ALL OF WHOM HAVE REPORTED FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS AND HAVE ACCORDING TO THEIR REPORTS PF’S EDGAR LUNGU AS THE FAVOURITE AND LEADING IN THE ELECTIONS..UNLESS YOU ARE SAYING ALL OF THEM WERE BRIBED TO MAKE EL WIN..WELL IS THAT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING???HOPELESS CRETIN YOU ARE!!!

    • The 2011 Pf is not the 2015 Pf and with the existence of Wynter’s party. It is highly doubtful that Lungu has the numbers to win. Sata even had to win in Livingstone for him to become president. If Lungu wins then he has rigged, no doubt about that.

    • 60 Constituencies Compiled so far. The TIZ PVT will resume tomorrow.

      Here are the statistics from the 60 Constituencies
      _________________________
      Total Valid votes cast – 851,818

      4R – 2,715
      NAREP – 2,816
      UPND – 350,023
      UNIP – 4,996
      PF – 469,910
      HERITAGE- 2,300
      MMD – 7,938
      FDD – 7,771
      CDP – 1,520
      GREEN – 671
      FDA – 1,158

      UPND chaps by the way these results include Southern, North Western and Western Province. There are only 3 constituencies for HH and 6 constituencies in favour of Edgar – thus, the 119, 887 gap cannot be closed. In short Edgar has whooped HH with a knock out punch.

      We told you chaps…..viva EL viva PF

    • iwe iwe iwe ,,,,,ala whats happening here????,,,,bush mouse lungu is lead is 60 constituencies only!…. Zambia has 153 constituencies ,,, 50 constituencies in western provinces were voting today,,,think before you start dancing!!!!

    • @2.7 Ndobo – Voting is taking place in only 51 polling stations, not constituencies, in various parts of Zambia. The total number of registered voters at these polling stations is only 21,000. You do the arithmetic – maths might be too difficult for you.

  2. You are right the levels of anxiety are reaching the ceilings. The hormone cortisol is in control…..lol.

    So we have to have humour if we are too survive. Our bodies produce the “happy hormone” endorphin.

    whoever wins stands a chance of winning in the next elections. This is the time to back to the drawing board.

  5. The reason why the West will always remain several steps ahead of us in Africa is that even in an election like we behave like animals, castigate everyone and call them names, we even threaten to deal with them forgetting that we need them. A known HH supporter within TIZ is responsible for the confusion. Which science or statistics, can you use to conclude that HH is winning when 36 constituencies have not completed voting and 58 constituencies have not finished tallying the votes. In Zambia, there are no exit polls that can give you the trend of results. Further sampling 5 voter out of 200 voters on a polling day is not good enough. So this is the problem with HH because he woke to believe wrong things by this staunch supporter and his director of research.

  6. Sensible press release although full of inconsistencies and contradictions. Zambia is one big country with lovely people. We were all campaigning for the person we feel would better for Zambia. Whoever takes the day, let them foster the peace and harmony we have forever enjoyed. The level of ignorance being portrayed by some bloggers on this site is unbelievable. You talk about killing people,grounding the plane, majority of you are encouraging anarchy, it’s wrong. Once the peace gets lost,it’s difficult to recover. The tribalism that has been exhibited is so shameful. No one tribe is superior in Zambia. Tribalism is synonymous with racism. What has happened to Zambia? I’m worried. At the most,the beneficiaries will be the politicians and you people being used will remain poor

  7. Bo Skeleton,
    the ECZ did not announce those results after Your HH demanded no more elections updates. seems no one can ever win with your demands. soon you will be saying ECZ are upholding/delaying the results…. malabishi

    • SKELETON THE VOTING PATTERN IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE DOES NOT FIT IN WITH THE PATTERN IN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. SOUTHERN PROVINCE TOWNS APPEAR TO HAVE HAD SUCH HIGH VOTER TURN OUT WHEN COMPARED TO TOWNS OF SIMILAR SIZE. IS HH TRYING TO RIG THE ELECTIONS? EVEN WITH RIGGING HH STILL CANNOT WIN.

  8. EL is calm becoz he knows he has won.

    These pipo gambled big and lost big;
    Moreen the Moron
    Mutati Mutiti
    Chifumo GBM
    Dipak the taliban
    Masebo – Zambia open or sperm bank
    VJ – Diplomatic Drug boron
    Munkombwe – the tonga carnivo
    Katele Kalumba – the bush doctor
    Matobo Mutale Namupango

    On the other hand I want to thank HH for participating and legitimising the EL presidency.

    • @ PanAfrican,
      If your children saw your blog and asked what you meant,what would you tell them? Why do delight in using insults? Is it lack of human intellect?
      Why use foul language? You insult one woman,you are insulting all of us.

    • APPLESEED ONLY A FEW WEEKS AGO YOU WERE BUSY INSULTING EL ON THIS VERY FORA. WHAT HAS CHANGED? SENSING DEFEAT ARE YOU?

  9. OFFICIAL ELECTION RESULTS UPDATE: Tulekolopa ma Votes.
    ====================================================
    Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at 09:17 AM
    1. Patriotic Front = 23,015
    2. UPND = 5,400
    Look out for updates soon and avoid getting fake information from desperate Media Houses.

    i thank you………

  10. I think Edgar’s sentiments sound mature and to me this statement indicates that he already knows that he has won. He is calm and collected. The voting pattern by our colleagues in southern province unfortunately also paints a very wrong picture on the tribal tag. There is no way the ruling party can be getting so low votes. Look at the voting pattern for other regions! This for me confirms that the region is truly leaves much to be desired

  11. STUPID LUNGU! WHAT CALMNESS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT WHEN YOU HAVE ROBBED US OF OUR RIGHT TO BE RULED BY A LEADER OF OUR CHOICE BY IMPOSING YOURSELF ON US THRU USING BALLOT PAPERS IMPREGNATED WITH CHEMICALS TO CHANGE THE X MARK MADE BY A VOTER? WHAT ARE THOSE TWO PRINTED MARKS DOING BEHIND A BALLOT PAPER? YOU LUNGU YOU ARE A CROOK AND A CRIMINAL! YOU ARE DIRTY-MINDED AND POWER HUNGRY. YOU WENT TO CROOKED COUNTRIES IN AFRICA TO CONSULT WITH THEM HOW TO RIG SO THAT YOU ASCEND TO POWER. YOU HAD TO PAY HUGE SUMS OF OUR MONEY SO THAT THEY CAN DO THE DIRTY JOB FOR YOU. YOU ARE STUPID AND YOU WILL NOT LAST ON THAT SEAT! IF IT IS A TONGA WHO WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT YOU SAY HE IS TRIBAL, BUT IF IT IS A BEMBA OR NJANJA THEN HE IS NOT TRIBAL. HH TREATED YOU WITH LIGHT GLOVES, BUT SOME OF US WILL NOT!

    • Pretty

      “POLITICS IS POLITICS”….do you remember who said these words…..?? His name is Wynter Kabimba.

      Its the same all over the world….not only in Zambia..thats the name of the game…..at the end of the day….someone has to shed tears…..

      Zambians have spoken….and this time they want Edgar Lungu to rule.

      Like i said before please feel free to come and Join us on Saturday at CBI Building in Matero….come drink Chibwantu and Fanta munkando…please bring all your UPND friends with you.

      Katondo boys

      i thank you so much

    • Stop crying. If the voters pads had magic ink HH would have lost in South Province. HH said God had told him that this year he would be president. GOD cannot lie, therefore it is either HH was lying or he was in a state of wishful thinking. I Am ashamed of those notables who mislead HH that he had nthe best plan. The more HH complains with no valid excuses the less chances he will have to scoop 2016. election. HH should study why is loosing in order to incorporate winning strategies. He should learn to respect people’s choices. I wish him the best in the next election.

    • So you know very well that you have lost cleanly. Stop insulting. If you have some skills of fighting let’s meet in the ring were there is assault.

      As things are EL is leading by about 180,000 votes with only LUSAKA, copperbelt, full results known. The other PF strongholds like Northern, LUAPULA, Eastern, Muchinga and central are yet to be announced.

      Already southern Province has been cancelled by Eastern results and the remainder is all bonus for PF. GAME OVER, ITS EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU IN STATE HOUSE.

      THIS MAN IN EL WILL DEVELOP ZAMBIA BEYOND ANYONE ‘s IMAGINATION. GOD BLESS.

    • According to TIZ its, PVT is based on 60 constituencies and have closed for the day until tomorrow morning but yours is based on 65 constituencies. Where are you getting this information?

  14. I understand HH anxiety- Imagine he started campaigning on28 October 2014 while Lungu had only 29 days to cover the whole country. Add this to the money he must have given to his agent to buy votes and media to distort stories.

  15. One CHAGWA LUNGU PRESIDOOOOOO , 6th in the line of serious Duty. PaaaaaaaaaaaaaaBwaaaaaaaaaaaaToooooooooooooooooooo. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May the loving soul of MCS rest in Peace. Tusche I muchibote CHAGWA LESA.

  16. Mr Lungu and Mr Hichilema, one of you will President and the other one leader of the biggest opposition party . You are both young and intelligent and for all we know good people, please make a difference. You have the opportunity to halt the polarization of this beautiful country. A private meeting at personal level would help to build confidence. Respect for opponents and acknowledging their contribution to the country’s unit and development will earn you respect from everyone.

    • This indeed is wisdom Sky Bird, if only either EL and HH examine their conscience without being influenced by those surrounding them. Zambia deserves better and its citizens have suffered for too long for benefits that still remain a pipe dream due to greed in man putting servitude to the rubbish heap.

    • Sky Bird, what a lovely blog…wish we had more sensible blogers on this site! The problem with have the likes of TRUTH!

  17. WE SHALL GO TO WAR IF LINGU IS OFFICIALLY DECLARED WINNER! IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN WAR IN ZAMBIA, NOW YOU WILL SEE IT! THIEVES HAVE STOLEN OUR VOTES! ABASH CROOKS. ABASH LUNGU. ABASH XAVIER CHUNGU. ABASH ALL THE ZAMBIAN CROOKS AND THOSE ONES FROM OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY WHO HELPED LUNGU TO RIG THESE ELECTIONS.

    • IF WE YOU WANT WAR THEN WAR YOU SHALL HAVE. YOU UpDn SUPPORTERS SHOULD REALIZE THAT ZAMBIA IS FAR BIGGER THAN SOUTHERN PROVINCE AND THAT YOUR POMPOUS HH IS NOT LIKED BY THE MAJORITY OF US ZAMBIANS. CHANGE YOUR LEADER AND REBRAND YOUR PARTY. RIGHT NOW UpDn IS NOTHING BUT A TRIBAL GROUPING OF TONGAS, ILAS, LENJES AND SOLIS.

  18. When God Says “YES” my dear brothers and sisters….this is the fufillment of prophecy….

    This is Victory for all Zambians…Scott,Miles Sampa,Kelvin Sampa,
    bo ma Inonge Wina,Kambwili,Nsanda,Father Bwalya,Rupiah Banda,Brian Hapunda,Mulenga Sata,Patrick Mwanawasa

    WE HAVE WON

    i thank you

  19. HH handlers should start preparing conceding statement, while those for Edger should update their draft victory speech. Job well-done to all PF supporters. God is on your side.

  20. Going by the marked regional voting, ECL just needs to breach the 700 thousand mark to win this election, with voter turn out been 33%.I do not see HH passing the 550 thousand mark. Time to rebrand upnd and shrugging off ethnicity labels. It is ECL at Plot 1, what a milestone! Congratulations Mr President!

    • THERE WILL BE NO RE BRANDING OF LEADERSHIP.IF THERE IS ANY PARTY TO THAT NEEDS RE BRANDING IS PF AND MMD.

      THE PARTY IS STABLE.WE DID NOT DRIBBLE ANY ONE OR USED VIOLENCE TO WIN THE PARTY PRESIDENCY.

      THERE IS ONLY 8 MONTHS REMAINING BEFORE ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL BYE ELECTION.

      UPND HAS PENETRATED DEEP INTO THE PF STRONG HOLDS.GOD IS ALLOWING THE ZAMBIANS TO GIVE THEM THEIR CRY FOR SAUL.

  21. If what I’ve been reading about ka Lungu being an alcoholic is true, then I can guess that since the burden of campaigning has been lifted off his shoulders, the kaponya has been drinking like there’s no tomorrow. He sure looks wasted in that photo.

  22. Transparency International Zambia 2 minutes ago· 60 Constituencies Compiled so far. The TIZ PVT will resume tomorrow.Here are the statistics from the 60 Constituencies. Total Valid votes cast – 851,818 4R – 2,715 NAREP – 2,816 UPND – 350,023 UNIP – 4,996 PF – 469,910 HERITAGE- 2,300 MMD – 7,938 FDD – 7,771 CDP – 1,520 GREEN – 671 FDA – 1,158

  23. I suspect Anderson Chisala to be “Truth”. I can tell the level of frustration and stolid comments. Too bad if you were promised a job and good riddance to mediocrity. ECL chabe!!!

    • Jasmine

      I told these die hard UPND bloggers that come January 20…wina azalila…….and Truth wants to go to war,,,,war with who???

      Maybe they want to fight Katondo boys…but we don’t fight physically..we do it through the ballot box,,,,and we have beaten DNPU and am sure this is it for HH…he should now retire.

      i thank you

  24. Take it easy dear PF carders.

    Wait until all the votes have been counted, otherwise some of you will end up taking poison taking your life short. If Edgar has really won, then wait until all votes have been counted.

    HH is winnnig these elections.

    There is nothing good for Edgar Lungu.

    ITS BYE BYE FOR HON LUMGU, BUT WE WILL MISS YOU DEARLY.

  25. Take it easy dear PF carders.

    HH is winnnig these elections.

    There is nothing good for Edgar Lungu.

    ITS BYE BYE FOR HON LUMGU, BUT WE WILL MISS YOU DEARLY.,.

  26. A bulk of results with huge scores for HH from North Western will wipe out Edgar’s gains in Northern Province with an extra to be moved to destroy parts of the urban C/belt in which Edgar has a commanding lead. Southern alone will deflate Edgar’s score in the remaining parts of C/belt and sink Lusaka. Be reminded that HH has done fairly good in the rural C/belt and Lusaka.
    Western will deal Luapula and Eastern. Eastern only requires a small fraction of poll results from Western to be neutralized since HH is trailing within a safe margin in that province. Central will swallow Muchinga which was previously part of Northern in the 2011 elections and the remaining bulk of votes from within Central province will be an extra bonus to completely seal HH’s victory. Then it will be fireworks.

    • whatabout these pvt which we have been informed of? anyway my source in nwp says they gathered info for nwp which is favourable. thanx for the update.

  27. My apologies for this long absence from the forum. Am still compiling data from North Western Province using my credible sources that are embedded in the system. This may take longer than expected because results from remote areas of Mwinilunga, Kabompo, Solwezi East and Zambezi are still be sorted. This is the province which has not been added yet to the official tally at the ECZ.
    As for Western Province, the task will be more challenging because most of the ballot papers from remote polling stations have not yet been reported to their respective central tallying centers. Most of these areas have presented extreme challenges in terms of accessibility due to bad weather that has left streams and rivers filled to the capacity with makeshift bridges completely destroyed.

  28. @ mwine munzi
    My bro,
    I have never insulted EL. I have called him chakolwa which is real and Chikwanda confirmed it when he was taped by the post newspaper! If We are defeated I wl concede and be sad for Zambia for I had hoped for better healthcare and education which PF has failed to institute. I’m in healthcare you see and my heart bleeds every time I’m unable to treat a patient due to lack of resources,period. The rate at which people die in Zambia is shocking and I will forever champion for the poor and I dream to see a day when common sense will prevail and people will vote for brains and not on tribal lines. I’m hopeful one day, Zambians will realise that they get a raw deal from their leaders? And thus my choice is and will be HH.

  29. Results which were not being announced by ECZ. Choma Central , HH 21,921, Lungu 2145. Monze Central, HH 14,727, Lungu 1045. Siavonga HH 12,817, Lungu 1361 with a few polling stations still counting. Bweengwa HH 10,487, Lungu 79, still counting. Moomba HH 8276, Lungu 100 still counting. Livingstone Central HH 19,126, Lungu 8,363. Solwezi Central HH 14,737, Lungu 4,219. Mapatizya HH 13,849, Lungu 357. Pemba HH 13,338, Lungu 203. Mbabala HH 12,996, Lungu 126. These margins plus to come from areas where HH has won, will significantly impact the results where HH has not won.

  30. Whoever…..no…..let me say whichever party wins, for Zambians have no analytical capacity for individual capabilities and what they stand for, will be what Zambians deserve! I guess each one that cast their vote did it to their conviction and not coercion! For those who cast their votes such as self proclaimed christians who based their judgement on religious untruths such as Satanism, they must know they have committed sin by usurping Gods powers to judge. The only pitiful thing is that a small percentage of the 14 million plus Zambian population will have decided how the nation is guided! Real democracy and objective voting is at least still ten years away and no less.

  31. I wonder what HH is thinking now wherever he is. Is there a future for UPND in politics under HH? UPND must consider looking for another president as this man HH is a specialist failure in politics. You don’t lose elections like this

    i thank you

  32. Breaking news, Edigar has won the election while HH has lost terribly and he is thinking of quitting politics. Its really too bad and sad for HH. Any way he has 2016 to try which he will lose again. I guess he is sick in bed this time mourning silently .

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

    • Truth Hates

      We all know the winner…just playing delaying tactics,,,,

      hahahahahahaha

      ONE EDGAR…..

      I thank you

  33. 60 consistuencies: PF 469,910 , UPND 350,023- Total votes cast 851,818-There are many more constituencies whose results have not been announced, concentrated in Eastern,Southern, Western, North western, Copperbelt and central. Expect a total number of the still to be announced votes to some where slightly above 1,000,000. This figure can perform wonders. No party should celebrate as at now as tables can be turned upside down by announcing a few of the coming results. Any party, PF or UPND can carry the day.

    • pvt

      Carry which day? please, stop alarming people with false figures…
      PF has won these elections…no doubt

      i thank you

    • Reliable information from UPND stronghold is that EDGAR LUNGU has won comfortably

      Welcome Mr President sir EDGAR Lungu.

      Thank God.

  34. @Pretty, the PVT results are real. ECZ is wary that is such information can inflame the tempers & cause chaos in the light of voting which was still taking place in the remaining 51 polling stations. The landslide for Edgar does not include the huge scores of HH from Western, North Western & Southern. This is the very reason why HH stormed Mulungushi centre to seek audience with the chair of ECZ. His concerns are why only areas where Edgar is winning are being announced. To be fair, a compromise was reached, that is to suspend the announcement until those that are still voting have done so to avoid a psychological impact on their behavior. Voter hearing that one particular candidate had won will be discouraged to go and vote for his/her candidate thinking it will be a waste of…

    • Transparency International Zambia chapter vice president JOESPH KALUNGU says his organisation has NOT declared any candidate in the Presidential race but is merely sharing information received from various constituencies.

      Mr. KALUNGU says the aim of TIZ is to promote transparency during the election process.

      He says TIZ deployed monitors in a number of polling stations in the 150 constituencies to monitor the voting process that took place yesterday and today.

      Mr. KALUNGU notes that it is only the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) that is mandated to officially declare the results of the Presidential elections.

      Mr KALUNGU said this is in statement released to ZNBC news in Lusaka today.

      He said his organisation has not speculated any PVT results today and is depending on…

  35. It’s done, can never be reversed. Congrats to ECL and all of us who Voted for PF. We hope Katele is not busy flying around, Mutati, GBM and MUnkombwe including Lameck, you people misled HH. HH in his current State is not salable apart from his home and some neighbors who are sympathetic. But it’s never too late you guys who endorsed HH should spearhead re-branding of this party to some acceptable level.
    Guys Please don’t forget to take your Suits to the Laundry in readiness for Friday Supreme Court function.
    Zambians have decided ECL 2015

  36. The truth is both PF and UPND have the results through their respective PVTs. And the truth is Lungu has lost because if Lungu won, they would be pushing Justice Mambilima to announce like they did in 2011.

    • Besides the suspension of announcement of results by ECZ has caught edgar by surprise as he was hoping to order the ECZ to just stop further vote result announcements midway the whole process to rig the outcome in his favour and annouce him winner, assuming that since most of votes counted were in his favour with huge margins, there could have been no way for the opposition to catch up with his PF. Thats why he tried to order the army not to give permits UPND helicopters. This is a very big blow to edgar.

      considering most of edgar’s strongholds have already been counted, its a big puzzle how he going to hold onto his so called “leading by big margin” when his zeros from UPND strong holds start rolling.

  37. The truth is both PF and UPND have the results through their respective PVTs. And the truth is Lungu has lost because if Lungu won, they would be pushing Justice Mambilima to announce like they did in 2011…

  38. The truth is both PF and UPND have the results through their respective PVTs. And the truth is Lungu has lost because if Lungu won, they would be pushing Justice Mambilima to announce like they did in 2011.,,

  39. The truth is both PF and UPND have the results through their respective PVTs. And the truth is Lungu has lost because if Lungu won, they would be pushing Justice Mambilima to announce like they did in 2011..

  40. official ECZ election results which is being celebrated by our PF cadres on this platform does not include the HH’s strongholds in which has scored big. ECZ has only released 30 constituencies out of 150. Please pay attention to details not just yapping “ifintu ni Lungu” whatever nonsense.

  41. BA ZAMBIA….. mediocrity lovers.. wallowing in poverty

    Heading to a failed state with the drunkard in-charge..

    It would be hilarious if it was not very serious.

    Okay I know not to Judge a book by its cover but I have heard this man talk and just look at the picture.. Kwena guys…… lol… Only in Zambia does Presidential material looks like this.

    Later

  42. @appleseed …… I hope he stops drinking if he is elected.. coz all that booze at his disposal would be deadly and I am tired of State funerals..

  43. @This is me, thank you for the clarification. Actually I could not bring myself to believe the alleged insult being peddled by some cadres and ZWD and attributed to Hon Lungu. I know that whatever his failings Edgar cannot utter such insults.
    Come on ba ZWD, let’s practice some decency and truths in our reporting. Surely just these few weeks you have changed yourselves so much, no actually destroyed yourselves……these days ZWD reports are no better than fart.ing.

  44. For our President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, our anthem in these elections ( for all PF ) is expressed better in this song online at:-
    THE LYRICS FOLLOW
    OLLY MURS – ARMY OF TWO – LYRICS

    m(dot)youtube(dot)com/watch?v=mdHOxdrJzNQ

    I came, I saw, tore down these walls
    Block one way, I’ll find another
    You know you’ll always be discovered
    If it’s me, you choose, I can’t lose
    I’m in love with you if you love me too, yeah

    Don’t ever change, and I’ll stay the same
    We’ll be swimming in the same direction
    And we’ll never lose this connection
    Nothing they can do can stop this army of two
    We’re marching to the future, yeah, it’s me and you

    So just follow my lead, repeat after me
    Our faith is the bullet, hope is the gun
    And love is all we need
    Now fear’s on the run
    We’ve already…

  45. Ba VJ tell the young man the truth. You have been in the game for a long time. Your political career was resuscitated by NMD because of the tribal cluster which was in the majority and had influence. It’s also true your winning of elections was as a result and not because of your own accord.
    Oops. ..or maybe it’s complicated as you might be among individuals who were out sourced and generously paid as a consultant.
    ilyashi lya muchanga….for HH kwacha Zambia Musankwa

  46. GOD BLESSED, GOD FAVOURED
    His Excellency President EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU
    RECEIVE YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
    NO MAN CAN TAKE WHAT GOD GIVES AND GRANTS
    NOT BY DESIGN NOR HUMAN WIT

    GOD BLESS ZAMBIA
    GOD BLESS EVERY ZAMBIAN
    PEACE, LOVE TO ALL

  47. BEFORE I Take a short break; be ready to know that we are moving in this direction, and keep calm and all relaxed as we await for ECZ.
    1. PATRIOTIC FRONT = 702,921
    2. UNITED PARTY FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT = 528,563
    FROM AN ESTIMATE = 122 constituencies
    @ 21:58 Hrs, on the day of the Lord, Wednesday, 21st Jan. 2015

    i thank you

  48. YOU CAN NOW REST IN PEACE PROF.MICHAEL CHILUFYA SATA BECAUSE YOUR BELOVED PARTY PF HAS RETAINED POWER UNDER THE MAN YOU YOURSELF GAVE US ZAMBIANS-EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU!!!CONGRATS PF LOVERS FOR RETIRING TRIBAL HH!!!

  49. Ebeneze!!!!!!! Thid far the Lord has brought us. We choose to forgive those who offended us and ask for forgiveness from them. congratulations ECl

  50. Let me educate you on what to look for in news. when you hear the words ‘high level’ in a sentence, it means that Lungu is not speaking or meeting Davies Chama as party president only but as Republican president. as you have seen there is quite a lot of state bite in the message to HH. he is literally saying it to him as head of state not just as pf president
