    • TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS LOCAL AND ABROAD. Like we told you,stay calm.we are about to finish compiling the

      results for all 150 constituencies.So far we are done with 140 and HH is leading with 20,000 votes.The remaining seats : 3 are in

      northern province,2 in eastern,chama district to be precise and 5 in western province. And we can confidently say that the upnd is the party that is producing the next head of state.whatever propaganda is there from our colleagues please ignore,as matter of fact,they know what we are talking about,but they just want to bring confusion.We refuse in the name of our lord Jesus Christ.

      ONE ZAMBIA,ONE NATIONAL & ONE PEOPLE.

      ZAMBIA FORWARD.

    • I have been reading comments from people that Tongas should learn to live with others, just what do they mean? What about those married couples from different tribes, with one being Tonga? Why is it tribalism when Southerners vote for credible leadership? So Tongas were not tribalists when there were voting for MMD and PF in the past few years?

      Let’s look at the Copperbelt province. Given how much that province contributes to our country’s GDP it should be a world class province by now. I just don’t understand how people can vote for the same rubbish politicians who only entered politics to make money for themselves. Zambians really need to wake up!

    • So that’s 37 not counted for Edgar and 24 not counted for HH… And the gap of 59000 to be closed. Plus 9 from central province to be shared….

    • @MM LE GRAND and other members of TEAM DELUSIONAL PLEASE READ THIS MORE THAN ONCE TO GET THE GRASP OF REALITY..

      For HH to beat EL he needs to get the 59,537 votes from the remaining 70 constituencies and then he has to top up on the votes which EL will get from the very same 70 constituencies…IS REALITY SINKING IN YET..EH GUYS IS IT ???? Sorry guys even in terms of probability its very, very unlikely unless you tell me 50% of the voters in Northern, Muchinga, Eastern and Luapula voted HH which we all NOW KNOW THANKS TO THE OTHER RESULTS THAT THEY DIDNT…

    • @MM Le Grand

      Only a few days ago we looked at the distribution of voter registration across the 10 provinces based on the 2011 voter registration which is also being used in the current elections.
      It indicated that Provinces like Western Province only offer 8% of the vote while Southern, Eastern, Copperbelt and Lusaka offer higher % returns for candidates.
      It is a fact that one will need at least three of the big blocks to take the day and the real battle grounds are CB, Lusaka and Northern/Muchinga Province.
      The candidate who takes these will carry the day and so far PF looks to have secured those even before considering EL’s Eastern Province which he is expected to take.
      It will be close but EL will take the day.

    • In short, this works out as follows: PF is execting to gain from 31 constituencies (Central, Eastern, Luapula, Northern, Central and maybe Lusaka) and UPND from 24 constituencies (Southern, Western and N/Western).

      UPND STRONGHOLDS OF NW, WESTERN AND SOUTHERN HAVE A TOTAL OF 27

    • Vision, whatever, are you sure Central is PF. This was MMD & trend is 90% of MMD has crossed t UPND! And looking at PF losing margins, 59, 537 is an easy figure to liquidate! Besides, unpaid farmers are in those constituencies remaining. Just helping you come to grips with idea of losing.

    • @ Commodore
      I am 100% behind your statement. Zambia is a poor country but what has worked so far for the country is the unity which used to be there.
      Sata in his 3 years ruined the relationships between the 72 tribesbadly such that the environment of tribalism has festered like a bad Boil!
      We seriously need to be united as country before it becomes worse. The problem is,the politicians are more than willing to advance tribalism to profit their greediness.
      Just look at how the PF were so RACIST towards Guy Scott. It was so shameful and cringe worthy.
      A leader worthy their call- should unify Zambia as it was in Kaunda and Chiluba era

    • And the tragic thing you are seeing is the sliding of the nation into the previous North Eastern Rhodesia (East and North) and North Western Rhodesia (Barotse land, Southern, Soli land, Lamba land and North Western).

      This cannot and should NOT be allowed to continue lest a schism of the nation occurs.

      There is no other explanation…..Lungu or HH, whoever emerges the winner must reach across the national divide and break this wall.

    • Absolutely. We need to have “One Zambia, One Nation.” It was great not to have all these tribal sentiments being aired. Let us bring up our children not to see tribe but the person.

UPND chaps, read today’s Post Newspaper comment, “When you have lost an election, taking carders to protest will not change anything, it simply means you never did you homework in efficient and effective manner, start preparing for the next election”. So we all know who has been taking carders to protest the results, hahahahah….

    Why can’t ECZ release all the votes cast and received?

    As for TIZ, what on earth are they doing? What is the point of their PVT, only to parrot what ECZ say?

      There is NO take over of security. In fact, I didn’t see any Policeman.

    Today is the day one Edgar Lungu ditched the Proven Failures (PF) into political oblivion! The problem with PF is that, they are intoxicated with Donchi Kubeba sickness and therefore, even the demise of Sata, PF is still the same dwellings of denial.
    No amount of Donchi Kubeba sickness can stop Gods time. The violence that PF put people throughout the country and pay back time is here.

  14. Sorry mates, I have very reliable data that HH has indeed won but questions to be answered are: i) Why was voter turnout so high in Southern and Western Provinces? ii) Why did North Western vote against EL given that three of the country’s main mines are there and several hundred youths from there are employed in the mines? iii) Why was turnout so high in Central Province (districts in the south like Chibombo and Chisamba and Mumbwa) rural high (than districts in the same province like Serenje and Mkushi) than urban places like Kabwe town? iv) Why did we allow VJ join UPND and not offer him a job in PF? What was Guy Scot really doing? Did he help us or helped the opponents in the cover of the night? I have too many questions!

    • Go and ask your grandfather those questions. We told PF not to ejaculate quickly. We are reminding them not to ever do that. The fact is that whereas PF members were following wherever Lungu went, UPND spread out to all constituencies at once. PF is gone whether you like it or not and this should be a big lesson. I am just sorry that they will have difficulties to pay back what they borrowed from Boko Haram.

Stop comforting yourselves that HH will win, come back to reality and accept defeat or else one will have a stroke or a heart attack.

There is no need to start being negative in what one says on any of them. Why are you people always behaving like animals that God never gave the ability to reason. You went to school, but it is like going to school was shear waste of time for some of you. I mean your comments should be of mature nature, after all it is the same Zambia where we all belong and cherish so much. As for me I give Kudos to both gentlemen. One thing to note here is that there is NO IDEOLOGY at stake, both of them just want presidency, period.

  26. All of you are living in the Past. Here is the latest:

    PVT Results from 140 constituencies now show HH/UPND are now IN THE LEAD by about 20,000 votes ahead of EL/PF.

    So what we are waiting for really is for the ECZ announcements to catch up with the PVTs. All PVTs and the internal reconciliations of the political parties themselves now indicate HH/UPND in the lead. Now it is just a question of whether UPND can maintain the lead to the finishing line. According to PVT, there are only 10 constituencies that have not sent in numbers: 3 from PF strongholds, 2 from Eastern province which is so far neutral, and 5 from UPND stronghold. Do your numbers…!!!!

    • Which PVTs are you referring to when during the latest ECZ briefing, UPND Senior lawyer Martha Mushipe acknowledged defeat by over 5,000 ballots according to their PVT and brought in calls for a possible recount.

      To say they will lose by about 5,000 votes is just one way of comforting themselves. The fact is under the current defective constitution, even one vote is enough to win you an election. Bottom line is the UPND have unwittingly publicly admitted defeat.

      What happened to the now infamous MUVI TV opinion poll that sent UPND supporters into ecstasy? HH will win this election by a whooping 84 percent.

  27. I’m still calmly waiting for the final count. Browsed quickly through the comments…..didn’t you guys know campaigning ended @ 1800hrs on January 19th????

    So what’s the beef? The die’s been cast.

    I kinda expected camaraderie now, with warm friendships being forged after the good fight…

  28. I thought Tumfweko.com announced around 4 am this morning that EL has won and that security have already secured his home-bamambala even showed a picture of HH apparently sobbing after having conceded defeat. I went for a shift in frustration thereafter thinking we are dead and buried only to come back and discovering that it is actually still game on, how sweet!!……….Faka, kunka mulilo HH bana badie nsima!!

  36. The results are already well known. HH is a 4 times loser! They are just postponing in UPND pain for you 1 tribe party. EL has won 7 provinces. How can u win the Presidency with only 3 provinces, regardless of whether you all turn up 100% to vote? How? Two of your provinces voter list is cancelled by Copperbelt alone. Lusaka cancels out ka Southern province, meaning the remainder of eastern and all the northern provinces is just MBASELA. Work with other tribes, Zambia is 1 country.

  37. Rasco absolutely right. No need to be harsh against each other. This competition is good for us citizens because it will make whoever will win to work hard to our benefit. Never in Zambia should we encourage landslide victories.

    So bloggers stop being hard on each other and the loser should start planning for 2016.
    In my views it will be very dangerous for the opposition to win this election because they will have to impress for the next one year which is impossible to achieve.

  39. NOTHING BUT THE REAL AND REAL TRUTH

    To all Zambians who prefer nothing but the truth, please hear this truth from me and not the propaganda you are being subjected by people that only want to alarm people.

    HH is now leading Edgar Lungu with more than 27 000 counted so far 141 constituencies counted so far.

    Very soon the ECZ will declare HH the winner of the 20th January 2015 Presidential Elections.

    HH IS THE 6th PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA.

      Lets embrace each other at the communion table of oneness and nationhood.

  41. APOSTLE AUSTIN LIABUNYA said this during a night of cross over service he conducted in the township of Area 23 at Music Crossroads tent in Malawi’s administrative capital Lilongwe in the wee hours of 1st January, 2015.
    “What will happen in Zambia during the coming elections is similar to what happened in Malawi during her elections” said the Prophet to a listening congregation adding, “there will be fake alliances
    among political parties.”“They will not win; God will scatter them by fire.”
    Describing HH as a youthful leader, the Prophet said “The young man must be clever “I see stealing of votes from him. He simply needs prayer so that this issue of stealing votes from him should not happen otherwise God has said he will win….and if they will steal his votes….”

    This is the equation used to verify the final results.

    Its not a matter of simple addition.

      I will not reveal more….let him who has insight dwell into what chumbu is pointing to.

      The law of averages and marginal incremental differentiation is the tipping point for this election.

      I now appreciate those differential calculus classes….there is something in the offing that will surprise everyone in Zambia.

      Look at it this way……two people found 18 sealed boxes filled with bundles of cash. The stronger one got 12 sealed boxes and the other one just managed to get 6 boxes. Who got the biggest loot of cash??

      Think carefully…….is it possible for the one with 6 boxes to have got more cash than the one with 12 boxes.?

      You get it…..kkkkkkkk…….there is a shocker on the way!!!

      Or 5 Monze’s to catch up and a few Namwala’s in order to win.

      Impossible.

      Mrs Lungu just start preparing a few phrases as you learn to mingle in the diplomatic world.

    • A total of 80 constituencies have been counted and announced so far with PF candidate Edgar Lungu getting with 533,613 while the UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema has 474,076 votes.
      The gap between Lungu and HH is 59, 537.
      The breakdown of the 70 remaining constituencies is as follows:
      Southern Province has 7 remaining
      Western Province has 14 remaining
      Central Province has 8 remaining
      Copper belt has 5 remaining (Rural)
      Eastern Province has 11 remaining
      Luapula has 4 remaining
      For Lusaka all have been completed
      Muchinga and Northern Province combined have 14 remaining
      North Western has 7 remaining.
      From the above breakdowns, 36 remaining constituencies are in the UPND strong holds where they are expected to win all of them with good margins that may offset Edgar Lungu’s…

    • He is note wrong. Check my post @ 64.1

      The argument is actually simple. If it were in Mr Sata’s time, this election would have been over as EL has led in in most constituencies thus far. BUT….AND this is the BIG BUT…..he has NOT managed to draw the massive turnout and votes that Mr Sata had and also this time and for the first time UPND has made a decent showing in PF stronghold from 1% to close to 15%. BUT ALSO it has managed to maintain the massive sweep of its strongholds.

      I gave a differential calculus anology using 18 sealed boxes of cash….and perhaps I could be onto something.

      Whatever happens, let us both camps, PF and UPND, maintain peace in Zambia.

    • @Lord Voldemort (The Dark Lord)

      I voted HH.

      The strongholds that PF has are not what they were in ba Sata’s time. Ba Sata won the 2011 elections with only FOUR provinces but with massive sweeps in province.

      Did EL have command of these strongholds that in the time of ba Sata only gave HH less than 6 000 votes for both Northern and Luapula? Did EL record same massive sweeps that ba Sata had? HH is now scoring same in two constituencies in the bastion of PF (CB, Lusaka, North and Luapula).

      That is the achilles heel of EL; his lack of sweeping command of PF strongholds.

  52. When U cannot Identify all voters in the voters roll use the Kth analysis in sampling and select an appropriate sample would be voters Given those characterises in those constituencies

    You will observe that the Voters mean in sample-turnout and population (registered voters) tend to crystallise around a normal distribution

    Given the characteristics of the voters in Zambia its either a plus or minus for the other candidate

    In this case the candidate with a larger sample makes the grade

    Put on excel and sell that Edgar has a larger sample in those outstanding areas and therefore will carry the day

      It now all depends of the make up of the 50…I know most are UF strongholds. Even if they share the spoils half half PF will carry the day.
