We have been shocked by reports in the media of attempted interference at the ECZ offices by Ministers Nkandu Luo and Jean Kapata. Allegations have surfaced that the PF cabinet minsters have sought to apply pressure on ECZ officials to distort the results.

These accusations are even worse than PF behaviour at ZNBC in recent weeks in which PF cabinet ministers reportedly sought to apply pressure on the national broadcaster to influence coverage of their campaign.

Whilst we are alarmed by these reports we remain confident in the ECZ. We know they are working hard to uncover such schemes and address any resultant distortions accordingly. We urge the ECZ to take strong action against the perpetrators.

  1. Good afternoon Folks.
    The war is on its last legs with all battles so far won. Victory is certain.
    Ifintu ni nani??

    • What is shocking is that Zambians can vote for such people to lead them. Very unfortunate. No wonder President Obama says it difficult to help Africa because most African countries choose to elect people who are not worth leaders to lead them. Zambia is a classic case.

    • HH has won the elections. The ECZ knows this and Guy Scott has been informed. This is why Nkandu Luo and Kapata are harassing ECZ so they can corporate and manipulate the figures. All these dilly-dallying going on means there are lots of discussions going on. The PF however is trying to do all it can including hacking the ECZ website so they manipulate the results. Emmanuel Mwamba and Xavier Chungu are the masterminds of all this hacking business. 2 Zambians and 1 Kenyan have been arrested in connection with this. Otherwise HH is our next president.

    • Ifintu, fintu nshi??? Bu kabova???

      Ena aishiba fye “uku chita” te??

      Abena “tasinta”, twebeni ko – kanshi fintu nshi???

    • One day you are accusing ECZ of trying to rig for PF the next you are commending them.. the other day you are accusing ZNBC of not covering your candidate.. Finshi mufwaya bushe???

    • Chils

      Campaigns are over. Political parties are still visible but the country should be more visible. So we should now sober up and get back to looking at one another as fellow Zambians, brothers and sisters. Hatred should give way to co-existence and mutual acceptance. There is life beyond politics. Above all the 6th president will be for Zambia and not one party. He will be expected to embrace everyone and develop all places including those in which he has been rejected.

      ONE EDGAR

      i thank you

    • There is no way Edgar can BEAT HH.
      Ba Luo we know tht you ve lost go and be CHIEF CHITIMUKULU because thts what you wanted.

    • Ministers asking the two sisters (ECZ girls; Irene and Priscilla). ‘Co-operation’ as may be misconstrued would not be in the interest of democracy, which we are presuming Zambia is thriving to achieve.

    • Katondo-Emmanuel Mwamba, as Lungu’s press aide I thought you would do a better job at answering the question. its simple, did your ministers threaten Mambilima?

    • Dipack the taliban ,he was the first with his HH to storm Mulungushi ,where HH cried uncontrolably ,even the post reported this.

      Chiwamila imbwa kuluma mbuzi

    • LOOK AT THESE UGLY WOMEN OF LUO AND KAPATA IYEEE MAYO BUBI NE MITIMA ISHIBI .
      BA JEAN KAPATA YOU THOUGHT YOU CAN DELIVER NWP
      LEAVE MAMBILIMA ALONE .SHES NOT LIKE CHIBESALOMBE THE CORRUPT ILLEGAL CHIEF JUSTICE

    • PF President Hon. Edgar Lungu upbeat, calls for calm
      Lusaka, January 22, 2015 – With 90 constituencies having been called in so far by the ECZ that are showing that our candidate Hon. Edgar Lungu is comfortably ahead in the race, I would like on behalf of the party, to re-affirm our call for calm as the Commission finalizes the results.
      As a ruling party, we fully comprehend that the Zambian people want a complete set of results and a winner declared as soon as possible but then we are also cognizant of the fact that the law does exist and it must be followed so that we continue leading by example.

      i thank you…..

    • I told them this foward foward you like shouting, mukapitilila pa state house, for sure HH apitilila state house

      EDGAR HAS WON

      i thank you

    • Ireen Mambilima has confirmed that some officials from a certain party went to harass ECZ officials at 1am this morning. Clearly they were not UPND. All attempted manipulation and intimidation should be exposed.

    • These women are an embarassment. I suppose they do depend on continuing with politics as that is their source of income. Ngandu Luo if it is true you are embarrassing the medical profession. Jean Kapata, who is she? All of a sudden she is being a nuisance!

  2. What is shocking is that Zambians can vote for such people to lead them. Very unfortunate. No wonder President Obama says it difficult to help Africa because most African countries choose to elect people who are not worth leaders to lead them. Zambia is a classic case.

  4. Ba UPND after fabricating the story in ZWD you want to authenticate it by condemning it in LT.

    The calibre of leadership we have witnessed in UPND can never look on while the perpetrators are on and about their illegal business. I mean, police would have been called to the scene and arrests made and paraded for all to see. UPND would have called for another suspension of the results call outs.

    SO ubu bufi ba Dipak mwabepa, Mulabeja basa

    • The calibre of leadership we have witnessed in UPND bra… bra…. bra
      You can compare the leadership in UPND with thpse scattered brains you have in pf.

    • The calibre of leadership we have witnessed in UPND bra… bra…. bra
      You cant compare the leadership in UPND with those scattered brains you have in pf.

    • If even cadres can not be arrested for violence, you think they will arrest their ministers? No, PF is a lawless party–we have had enough. Abash lawlessness, abash PF, & viva UPND!

    Good Luck boys.

  6. Let’s hope the delayed results are not being influenced by Guy Scott to make maneuvers against Lungu.

    I don’t trust Guy Scott. Hon. Lungu if you win drop this guy before you even form government.

    Don’t tell me adding numbers should take three days. We are not talking millions here. We are talking thousands. This was not a general election where people are counting votes for MPs and councilors as well.

    Release the results so that people are free. Don’t hold the country to Ransom Ba ECZ. Is it about more allowances or what?

  7. MAY ALL THE PROGRESSIVE ZAMBIANS CONDEMN THIS GRANDMOTHER LUO AND KAPATA’S ACTIONS. THIS IS THE CROOKEDNESS WE HAVE ALWAYS SUSPECTED IN PF. LUNGU AND HIS TEAM ARE CROOKS WHO SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO IMPOSE THEMSELVES ON US. THESE THIEVES ARE USED TO WIN BY HOOK AND CROOK. THEIR HEARTS ARE FULL OF PRIDE. THEY THINK THEY ARE GOD,AND SO THINK THAT TONGAS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO RULE OUR OWN COUNTRY, WHY? PEOPLE HAVE CHOSEN HAKAINDE SO LET HIM RULE OUR GREAT NATION BECAUSE HE IS A 100% ZAMBIAN WITH FULL ABILITY TO LEAD AND UNITE THE COUNTRY. LET HH RULE.

    • That is why I would never support these women. What can they teach their children? To cheat! Just who do they think they are to try and manipulate what the people of Zambia want? Just accept if PF is losing. You have had your time and you have failed the people of Zambia and that is why they don’t want you.

  8. Justice Irene Mambilima is addressing the press at Mulungushi Conference Center. I can’t speculate what she is talking about. The briefing is in session. But I still maintain what I posted last night that HH will emerge the winner in this election.
    Details about Justice Mambilima’s press briefing will come to you momentarily.
    Good day.

  9. Thanks UPND for giving us a good fight….thanks Hakainde Hichilema.

    EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU HAS BEEN HIRED BY THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE

    i thank you

  10. Viva UPND. There is nowhere Kachasu man can win this election. HH had worked so hard for this victory.

    Thanx Zambians for your output !!

    • Anderson Chisala

      Please lets all show some respect to our Candidates….please stop calling Edgar Chakolwa..its not nice…By Saturday he will be your President too.

      ONE EDGAR

      i thank you

  11. Pf celebrated faster than the results could flew hahahaha HH is taking it soon we will rule and PF was puting numbers in front of figures so what wants to happen is ,since they are said to have been adding twos in front in 30 constituences,we shall mutiply 2000×30 and subtracr the figure from their votes hahahaha we are gone

  12. 10 more constituencies have been added. Edgar has broadened the gag from 59, 000 to now 65, 000.
    The added ones are 3 from Northern, 2 from Eastern and 1 from Southern.
    Keep tracking.

    • Mabisi

      Yes he is leading but you have rounded off figures….

      Please check my correct Data

      ONE EDGAR

      i thank you

    • But those are from his strongholds. This means that from the remaining 60 he has less than 25 from his strongholds. Remember we have about 14 from Western, 7 from NWP, 5 from Southern and about 10 from central among which are Chisamba, Kemba, Chibombo, Itezhi Tezhi and Katuba. These are UPND strongholds too. Remember too that Copperbelt rural has 4 more which include Kafulafuta, Mpongwe, Masaiti and Lufwanyama which are all promising for HH. So nizee mudala. Dont prepare yourself for serious embarrassment.

    • The gap appears narrow but filling it is a huge task. The fishing ponds in the power bases for UPND are quickly running dry.

  13. For a ruling party to fail to retain the Presidency within 3 years of winning a general election shows how Zambians are becoming sophisticated, notwithstanding Copperbelt and Luapula voters who are stuck in political and tribal limbo. No jobs, no money, no food – Zambians were feed up of PFoolish lies. Kuya bebele!

  14. EDGAR LUNGU CONTINUES TO LEAD AFTER RESULTS IN 90 CONSTITUENCIES ARE ANNOUNCED- ECZ
    At the latest briefing Electoral Chairperson Irene Mambilimba has announced that after adding 10 new results from constituencies, Edgar Lungu remains ahead of his closest rival, Hakainde Hichilema in the presidential race.
    Below are the latest results announced by ECZ
    LATEST UCZ PRESIDENTIAL RESULTS
    90 Seats- PF 590,252 (50.75%)
    UPND- 524,976 (45.14%)

    i thank you

  15. Highlights of the press briefing:
    (1) Political parties should advise their cadres not to behave irresponsibly in such a way to create chaos & disrupt the work of ECZ.
    (2) Police should ensure that the tallying center remains free from interruptions and unruly behaviour from political cadres.
    (3) Political parties should refrain from announcing premature results that have not been officially verified by ECZ
    (4) ECZ will not be pressured by outsiders to carryout its functions
    (5) ECZ will only make known the winner of the presidential election after all votes have been officially verified by ECZ.
    (6) Results from 10 more constituencies have been added to the official ECZ tally, bring the total number to 90. (Edgar leads by 65,000 margin).

  16. Director of ECZ has categorically dispelled rumours that have gone viral on social media suggesting that foreigners broke into the ECZ computer room with intent to hack the system. According to Priscilla Isaacs (Director of ECZ) such stories are lies. “ECZ premises will remain secure and no unauthorized personnel can have access to our facilities” said Priscilla Isaacs in a hushed up briefing.

    • THIS IS TRUE! ONLY THEY JUST CARPETED IT BECAUSE IT IS HIGHLY SENSITIVE! PF THIEVES ARE AT IT AGAIN! THESE ARE SERIOUS CROOKS AND LOOTERS! WE SHALL FIGHT FOR THE FREEDOM OF OUR CHILDREN. FIGHT FOR JUSTICE IS ONE OF OUR ROLES AS ADULTS. WE NEED TO LEAVE A GOOD LEGACY FOR OUR CHILDREN.ONE KENYAN AND TWO ZAMBIANS WHO ARE ECZ WORKERS AND PF’S EXTENDED ARM OF RIGGING AND CROOKEDNESS. LET TRUTH PREVAIL. THOSE FIGURES FROM COPPERBELT SHOULD BE REVISITED.

  17. Priscilla Isaacs is now taking questions from members of the press and stakeholders at Mulungushi Center.
    Stay tuned.

  18. UPND guys, please stop spreading lies. We have just heard from ECZ 17hours briefing that it actually the UPND senior party officials who harassed ECZ officials. You so bad liars. That is why you are losing. You cannever be trusted with authority. You will spreading all sorts of untruth. Cage your Patel. He is the one who went to ECZ.

  19. Emmanuel and your fellow criminals, you are strong you guys.

    Last night you didn’t sleep, you were busy cooking yo propaganda at Tumfweko saying security has surrounded the house of Edgar Kachasu Lungu.

    But to my surprise, I found Edgar drinking bear at his home.

    To tell you the truth, HH is the next President of Zambia.

    • Dipak Patel is a shameless liar. We just heard for the Chairperson of the Commission during the 17 hours briefing. It is Dipak himself and other UPND senior officials who stormed and harassed the ECZ. Just imagine how many other lies Dipak is sending to his own party and the nation. How can you trust such a person. He could have been or still lying to HH and his team about many things. He is only after getting some job. UPND do you think the nation is not following things as they unfold?

    • OH DEAR DEAR LOOK AT YOU TWO UGLY WOMEN PAFIMENSO KWATI NIPA AAAAAAAAANUUUUUUUSSSSSSS.

      VIVA HHHHHHHH

    • Ba Sara, It is very easy to call other people ugly hidden behind your computer screen where no one can see you. As a woman yourself, you should be able to express your disregard for these women in a manner that does not make you look so bad yourself. Let’s be mature in the way we express ourselves. This rant is a very ugly look on you….

  20. UPND must condenm it’s cadres who stormed the ECZ we all heard on TV from madam Pricilla Isaac. She was visibly annoyed with the HH thugs. There was no mention of the two Ministers , lie you morons.

  21. Dipak Patel must just start thinking of how he is going to pay the so many million dollars he got from he knows who, back. That’s why afuna kufuntha.
