Dr Canisius Banda talking to journalists
Dr Canisius Banda

The opposition UPND has described the results of the January 20 presidential election released by the Electoral Commission of Zambia as fake.

The party has since demanded that the winner of the election is not declared until the verification of all results is done and consensus about them is established.

In a statement released by its Vice President-Politics Canasious Banda , the UPND said even if this takes weeks, the declaration of the winner must not be based on fraud, but on the truth.

Dr Banda said Zambia is a democracy and every citizen has the responsibility to invest in the growth and maturity of this democracy.

‘The holding of elections is fundamental to this end. It is the expectation of the citizens that through these elections, they will have food on their tables, clean and safe water in their homes, unhindered access to education and healthcare, employment and affordable housing,’ he said.

He added, ‘However, because of the fraud that we have witnessed, this goal of the citizens might remain a pipe dream. It has been observed that though the citizens have confidence in our electoral process, this process is in danger of failing them because of the Patriotic Front’s continued interference.’

‘We are aware of bad elements that are in our midst that are making a mockery of our electoral democracy. Because of their malpractice, their deliberate manipulation of results, citizens are having their vote stolen.’

Dr Banda stated that it is in the interest of every citizen that the ECZ is strengthened and that it conducts truly free and fair elections, because unity and peace in the nation hinge on this.

‘We are aware, as we had earlier warned that the transfer of results of the presidential election held on the 20th January 2015 has been marred with gross and glaring irregularities,’ he said.

Dr Banda charged that many of the results so far publicized by the ECZ do not reflect the actual voting pattern of the citizens as admitted by the ECZ itself.

‘Many of the results have been manipulated to suit the interests of one political party. Many of these results are fake, they are mere products of deception,’ he said.

‘Note that it is the interest of every citizen that accurate results are given. The truth must prevail. All of us collectively as citizens must ask for nothing but the truth. Anything short of this, is unacceptable to the democratic rights of our people.’

Dr Banda has since thanked all Zambians including members of UPND and supporters for the manner in which they have conducted themselves so far.

‘It is only fair that the wishes and aspirations of the Zambian people that cast their vote are respected. The discrepancies in the election results observed so far are a very serious concern that border on national security,’ he warned.

‘We have successfully participated in this election and know that we are headed for victory. It is therefore important that we all handle this matter with the seriousness it deserves. We therefore wish to appeal to all Zambians and stakeholders to let the electoral process to be concluded in a fair, transparent and orderly manner. We further wish to thank all the citizens that voted for expressing their will, and we shall do whatever we can to ensure that their will is respected.’

      Ugh! Are you so indolent that someone “should cage this man”? Time of spoonfuls are over, please try to cage him yourself rather than slumbering from without dear!

      On the otherness, Viva HH, Viva Hakainde Hichilema, Viva, UPND and Viva Forward.

      Last kicks of the discarded PF who have resorted to rigging votes. Confusion has confused the visionless PF leadership.

Be realistic it is common knowledge that NOT all can win. Job seeker you are. I start doubting if you a wise man from east, I think you are un wise man from South. Wake up Banda you think if HH win will give you a job, you are mistaken. You will be the deputy minister, all the cabinet will be Tongarised. WAKE UP BANDA

    • Canisius still got his mind locked up in students politics instead of national politics. Listening to this guy and Dipak reveals why HH has been being more self damaging remarks. UPND need to hit the bar of maturity right now. Otherwise, the end has come home. EL is coming out more and more a mature statesman ready to Govern the country to peace; stability and development. Flictional politics albeit have no future in Zambia.

    • The language Dr. (?) Banda is using is not of a responsible person but an alarmist and bitter loser. Can this man realise if voter turnout in 7 provinces that voted overwhelming was equally as in 3 provinces that voted for HH, the gap between two would have been over 600,000 votes. EL is representing 7 +3 states whereas HH had the mandate of a narrow group brainwashed by selfish tribalists and gold-diggers. As for Mr Banda cage the person for calling a due process a fraud. He is involved in libel of Judge and her equally respectable citizens.

    • UPND and it’s leadership believed in false prayers provided by a big church in emmasdale by it’s bishop and youth pastor who tried to influence the members to vote for UPND but alas the member knew that it was a ploy as the man of God was after a big offering. Shame that we should use the church to deceive people. Work members and never allow such to happen again

    • There were a lot of ghost voters in Southern Province created by VJ and PF have not made an issue out of it. It is the only Province that has recorded over 50% of turn out whist the rest of the country has been below 30%. So the good Dr. should just learn to grow up and accept defeat.

  1. I guess this is the concession speech by UPND from. PF must have won this election. Not bad regarding the fact that all polls had put you at running away with this one at 80%

    I think you should be proud and you have done well and how you handle yourself now will board well for you in 2016, but the way you have started. I must say it not promising.

  2. True, this is not a party convention that KaniminamisamLungu thinks he can arm wrestle his way to victory. This concerns the entire Zambia and due process should be allowed to prevail in a free and fair manner. If ECZ has noticed and admitted that there are irregularities then no winner should be declared whether PF or UPND until results are verified.

      We only accept genuine results, and reject results from thieves. Why inflating Chawama figures from about 13 000 ++ to about 18 000 ++. Isn’t this thieving ? In your mind it is kubuula fye?.

You are lucky the confusions in MMD and defections of MMD big shots to your party has reduced your embarrassment. Come 2016, you will learn that Tribal politics have no place in Zambia bcoz the Zambian people will vote in numbers to neutralise your votes in one province.

  6. ECZ is the Electoral Con-mission, the rigging mechanism of PFools. TIZ, church mother bodies and anybody who did PVT from polling station results should present their results to ECZ and ask for all discrepancies to be reconciled and explained. Otherwise what is the point of PVT if not to verify the credibility of the election results? ECZ are incompetent and a vessel for making a mockery of our electoral process.

Be magnanimous and accept defeat, by all accounts you’ve run a Dar much better election campaign but you’re are ruining your bright chances for 2016. If you’ve ears stop this childish behaviour. Can you give us 20 examples of fake results. ECZ have credible results it’s ZNBC that’s a scumbag that altered the credible results handed to them by ZNBC.

    • No matter what you do to some one from southern province they will not appreciate if you are not Tonga. This government has done a lot for the province including building animal Deeping tanks and health posts in a number of areas. Did they see that? no. They are all HH blind. what they get from HH no body knows. It is just all about tribalism.

      Tribalism is in there blood, even in the church. As those who are fellowshipping with them in that church.

    • As always and typical of Tonga culture, they never admit their role in how they are perceived. This election has confirmed once again how tribal Tongas are. Did you notice how those less tribal Easterners are? UPND wan one constituency (Sinda) and getting reasonable votes across. Tongas, be reasonable. For as long as your voting pattern and ideology remains as always: “Vote Tonga, vote UPND”. Remember Tongas have never voted any other party in the face of a Tonga party. Prior to 1972, Tongas always voted ANC; you voted for MMD in 1991 because there was no Tonga Party. Came NP under Baldwin, you voted for it. When Dr. Akashambatwa (The lady) took over, you stopped voting for it. Came UPND; you never looked back. When Mazoka died and Sikota looked poised to take over: Remember the uproar!

    You have done extremely well as UPND given the tribal tag the party wears.

    This is time to strategize, time to reflect on what has gone wrong and move on.

    Remember there is rainbow party in the corner so the next elections might be tougher.

    You need to strengthen your national character as a party.

    The earlier you concede defeat the better so that people can begin to see maturity in the party.

ECZ should not be initimdated and should be given the professional space needed. UPND and PF meet with ECZ this morning ,so this statement is surprising. Its my sincere hope that he retracts this statement and engage ECZ on his concerns. As voters we hope that we can have a winner by midnight tonight as the longer it goes on the more the aniexty will grow in the nation. Let’s all rally behind the ECZ as the only credible source of election results. The approach taken by Cannius will come back to haunt him and UPND in 2016.

    PF, be humble in victory, celebrating a narrow win in other people’s faces only stirs emotions. UPND, be hopeful in defeat, it is clear that your party is necessary for the development of our democracy and perhaps the nation in one or more ways. The performance by the PF & UPND have clarified that now, 50+1 truly is possible. It would be a great thing if Zambia can only have two political parties, it will really bring fairness.

Word I have is inauguration is tomorrow, it will sad if a death will divide our nation and few will benefit. I hear the Indians who were providing fuel for EL’s choppers are awaiting all various benefits. The Elite few will benefit for sure!

    All elections in Zambia open to monitoring and observation by local and international organisations respectively upon obtaining the necessary accreditation. The observers and monitors express their opinions on the conduct of each election through reports that they issue at the end of their missions.

  35. In some polling stations in Choma, Edgar Lungu actually got 0 votes. Now think of this: at each polling station, each political party is supposed to have one of their members resident in that area as a polling agent. In view of this, how possible is it that Lungu couldn’t get even one vote from his own agent? Does that mean there was no PF polling agent at the polling station? Or does that mean that even the PF agent there didn’t vote for Lungu? This is very suspicious!! There is something very fishy with results from Southern Province which requires further investigation. Can this Dr. Canisius Banda shed light on this? Whose results are fake Dr. Banda??

  36. ZAMBIA will be UNITED against TRIBALISM

    Mwe bantu its one Zambia one nation! we have all seen how our friends in southern province voted; clearly it shows that we are not together with these people. I wonder if every single southern province voter truly believes in the UPND manifesto and if UPND has ever delivered anything for the people. It is a shame when people do not show appreciation…PF govt has many positive developmental plans for the region and they are currently in motion, by 2016 you will see this development. You should stop this trend of wanting to be in the limelight all the time. Your personal successes are just that “personal”.

    • Nixon, i am not from Southern province yet i understand why most southerners are behind HH. Tribalism is when you surport a candidate merely because he is from your tribe even when one lacks the needed qualifications. On the contrary, when the candidate of your tribe is the one who reflects excellent qualities and you support him, that is not tribalism and is normal in any society. YOU CANNOT COMPARE HH WITH E LUNGU. SEEING THAT HH IS THE BEST CANDIDATE AMONG THE CONTENDERS, THEY SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE AND THAT IS WISDOM. WE NEED QUALITY LEADERSHIP AND MUST DESIST FROM VOTING FOR VISIONLESS LEADERS SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY BELONG TO OUR TRIBE. CURSED BE EDGER LUNGU AND THOSE OF HIS TEAM WHO MANIPULATED THE ELECTION RESULTS. LET THEM BE ACCURSED.

  38. It is therefore important that we all handle this matter with the seriousness it deserves.
    ECZ and PF have taken the peace we enjoy for granted…….. as supporters who have voted for UPND we not allow this nonsense. ready for come what may…….. they burnt tyres and used panga.. for RB to concede defeat. we are willing to do more than what PF did…..alert and active….. all the way to state house

    The trend of tribal voting will damage relationship across the nation. The old people or politicians are the ones interested in boasting about tribe, because they want to say things like “at least tongas have achieved this or that and are better than bembas” or “tongas are intellectuals…not these other tribes that cannot reason”. Old people like Munkombwe and VJ still desire to be in the limelight, they would like to see their “own” in power so that they can claim it is their protégé. Southerns are really suffering from this problem because it is in their DNA and the only way to get rid of it is to ensure that they intermarry up to the 4th generation so that they stop thinking and believing that all the best things in life come from tongas; so stop the nonsense!…

    Zambians need to be serious….history has shown that the Zambian model is not sustainable…where crooks are in position of influence and power. There got to be a solution!

    Maybe not today but in good time…

  42. The 120 days all started when we lost HEMCS (MHSRIP), who fell sick on 20th October, 2014 who later passed on in London on the 28th October, 2014 and we needed to conduct Presidential Elections; which His Honour the Acting President Dr. Guy Lindsay Scott called for to be held on 20th January, 2015.
    WE HAVE WON THE ELECTIONS WITHOUT DOUBT; Congratulations ba PF !
    Get ready for Inauguration time-table so that we can deliver our President ELECT, Edgar Chagwa – to his residence at office at Plot 1 housing State and Nkwazi .

  43. Zambian is a Failed State, it cannot hold credible elections. The rubbish that the PF and ECZ idyots are sowing will be felt by younger generation when the Lungus, Chamas etc, are long gone.

    I thank God my children are America. How do you raise children in a country like Zambia?! Corruption, nepotism, tribalism, theft, no meaningful civil discourse, panga culture, name it.

  44. Dr Banda is setting a very bad example for our democracy. We have institutions that are observing the elections and those mandated to take care of all the election responsibilities and we all believe that these are credible people and institutions we have put in place. Just because we are losing does not mean the ECZ is corrupt and is favoring any individual. From the onset UPND had convinced themselves of victory even before a single vote was cast. So this is normal reaction from them, as far as they are concerned there is only one winner and that is HH. Any other result is fake and incorrect, I wonder what would happen if all the participating political parties took the same route. It is really shameful the behavior being exhibited by UPND.

  45. EL this and that, HH this and that, PF this and that, Upnd this and that, what do all these stand for? Nobody knows just waffling through and through that is what Zambian politics is lots of rhetoric sidestepping discussion on real issues for a road map! It is just become boring and without a mind like Guy Scotts’ on leading we are headed nowhere! While African leaders weave around issues and see leadership as a way of enriching themselves the WHITES see leadership as providing a service and accounting to the electorate to justify the privilege given them to lead! The past few weeks under Scott have been refreshing making me wonder why we did away with colonial masters who for example levied families for failing to send their children to school as no child left behind!

  46. Well done PF and UPND,

    My concern however regards the voting pattern in Southern province. In polling stations in SP where HH got 100% votes and other parties got “0” , Is it that not even one person had a different opinion? What kind of tribalistic tendencies are these comrades? What these Tongas don’t know is that they are digging their own grave, next tym other provinces will not vote for you, they will be like bakaivotera abene, Tongas you have set a bad precedence, you shud know that No man is an island.

    Congrats Edgar, God bless You

  48. fellow Zambians back home , reading most of the comments makes me very Sad i thought our democracy had matured i was wrong . Most of the comments that people are putting across are not issue based but slander. I have been following these elections from day one of the voting and reading some of the comments one can tell some people are writing from without. In very true democracy any aggrieved party has a right to raise concern I do not see any thing wrong with Dr. Banda raising concern. Judge Mambilima a woman of high standing acknowledged the anomaly so where is the maturity by UPND BRAVO all fellow UPND members back home I salute all of you for the Job well done

  51. On the contrary UPND has leaked voters ballot papers in Choma Dundumwezin Namwala and Itezhi tezhi in a fictitious voter turnout

    Its something that ECZ should also supervise and monitor choongo areas It was an order given by tonga loyalist in support of HH to win

    Please ECZ investigate and ensure systematically rigging by HH sympathisers is curtailed very sad experience

    This is a farming season and people are out in fields with Mbabala registering such a tirunout its a source for ECZ to investigate real time

  53. I don’t understand why everyone is bashing Dr C. Banda. He’s raising very serious and important issues that have been cause for civil strife in other failed nations. Zambia isn’t immune to this.

    His allegations must be given the attention they deserve. Democracy should not only be transparent, free and fair but it must also be seen to be otherwise the confidence of people in the system is eroded. Even if there is only one case of electoral malpractice, that is enough to lose confidence in the process. We shouldn’t accept fraud in election results and “just accept” defeat for the sake of whatever reason.

    As for Tonga tribalism allegations, I have seen similar big margins against HH in Bemba speaking provinces so why the double standard? Be real! Failed State indeed.

  54. Ladies and gentlemen: does it mean that all the brothers and sisters in Southern Province have seen are negatives? There have been no roads taken there? No health posts, no schools? Surely, there could not have been even a thousand voters to appreciate what the PF has done for them? This election is indeed an eye opener for 2016. Some people will remain what they are no matter what! So, 2016 must be different. You the 7provinces wake up and don’t pretend, you are not loved, be ready for 2016!

      They mess up and disadvantage some people even at work places.

      Bantustans are too polluted with hatred. They will never rule if they dont embrace the one zambia, one nation motion.

      They are too jealous of people from the other 7 provinces.

    • Must. You are very right on this one. For example there is a 74 km gravel road being tarred in Bweengwa constituency, Monze-Niko road. However PF got 79 votes in that area. Honestly it’s really difficult to understand and please these SP guys. How do you explain that project being nothing to them. Something is wrong. Secondly are the guys in SP telling us that no one smokes marijuana in that area because no one voted for the Green Party. Lol
