The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) have issued a statement  saying that they verified votes from all the 150 constituencies,  contrary to claims by United party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema that they only verified 32 constituencies.

In a statement released to the media and signed by ECZ Director Ms Priscilla Isaacs, the commission advised the UPND leader to petition the results in the Supreme Court of Zambia as provided by the law instead of continue to malign the commission.

Below is the full statement

  1. I despise ka Lungu as much as the next guy does. But naiwe ka Hakainde, knock it off. Move on with your life. Maybe you will win in 2016 maybe you won’t. Really nothing to b!tch about.

    • Mr. Hichilema, no one was born to be president of a country. If PF stole this election from you, so what? It’s time to move on.

    • I used to think Sata was bad at crying foul after losing and election but this is another level.
      HH will do well to “feel” the mood and temperature in the nation before taking such a firm line. Everybody knows that he lost marginally and any accusations directed at the ECZ will only serve to allienate him from the public and he will see how much that 46% of the vote will dissappear in 2016.
      Lungu is on a good path for now and the nation is simply not interested in cry babies.
      Where are the “endorsers” to give this guy some advise? I can offer my services if you are happy to pay for that!

    • These elections were rigged. The people involved are already revealing how their were doing it. This includes getting the votes for smaller parties who couldn’t afford agents at every polling station and adding those to PF; changing the PF numbers from say 200 to 2000 by adding another zero or changing from 200 to 1200 by simply adding a 1, etc. The only way to bring this matter to a close is to allow the opposition parties to do a 4 way reconciliation as follows:
      1. Number of ballots cast at each polling station;
      2. How those ballots translated to votes for each candidate;
      3. How the votes for each candidate were recorded and then adopted by ECZ;
      4. The results announced by ECZ.
      This doesn’t required any political party to waste resources going to court which we know is also…

    • Well there is some truth of the rigging. ECZ has just admitted to various irregulrities of swapping the results meant for UPND giving them to PF.

      ECZ verified only 32 such irregularities and refused to verify the others why?

      On top of that had Lungu allowed ZAF to let UPND take its monitors to voting centres all these irregularities would not have been there in the first place. And HH would have conceded defeat having been satisfied that his monitored were not barred from monitoring his results in all the centres.

      In the light of what ECZ has admitted, these elections were massively rigged. Only a f00lish and stupid person would think otherwise.

      Like I said, PF and Lungu’s victory is like a castle build on sand. Soon and very soon people will start coming out to tell the…

    • Folks

      Be warned that, when ever an election is stolen in Zambia bad things tend to happen to the president. It does not matter how good the president elect who stole the elections turns out to be , a curse still follows them up to the grave in a short time.

      In Zambia if the just ended election was stolen, those involved will continue to lead miserable lives no matter how hard they try to be normal. Things will start happening to them that will remind them of their evil actions even though they will be in denial.

      Any one involved in rigging the just ended elections will NOT see 2016 in one peace. Nature has a crude way of dealing with such rogue elements.

      It shall come to pass folks not far from now. So confess or else?????

      Ignore my prognosis at your peril.

      Watchout!

    • I don’t know if I should use the word immature for HH’s behaviour but out of respect I will say that he is really, really bitter. I have great respect for him but this kind of behavior is really disappointing, so is the behavior of most of the UPND supporters on this forum. I expected to see a show of courage and concrete campaign strategies, that would have been so encouraging for us outsiders.
      Insult me if you want but why cant you UPND supporters listen to other people? I don’t take sides because I like to criticize from a neutral point of view and am telling you that your behavior is working against you.

    • Mwanawasa, Sata never enjoyed stolen victory. I therefore think, Lungu will not enjoy this victory too.

      Already he sweating to create a balance between RB and the Bemba factions.

      He has left the Northern factions in limbo and they will engineer his down fall just like they engineered RB’s or engineer his death just like they did to Mwanawasa.

      If he is clever he should clean up the judiciary , ECZ , Red brick, DEC , Army and ACC. Make sure that these institutions have a balanced tribal composition not the way it is right now, where the majority in all these organisations are from one tribal grouping.

      Lungu needs to take an affirmative action if he is to survive because they will dribble him the same way HH has been dribbled if he does not change the compositions of these…

    • I also blame the ECZ for not responding earlier. They should have addressed it and laid it to rest quickly. Now, it looks like he HH is making you sweat and you are on your toes because he won’t stop. You were sleeping while he was slowly becoming the loudest vuvuzela you ve ever had to deal with. Inefficiency.

    • UPND needs to publish its findings and write a report titled. How the 2015 election was rigged. Then they needs to convince voters that getting up from our homes at the risk of being panga’d by PF and going to vote, risking our livelihood by campaigning for UPND in the markets and our homes only to have our votes stolen , will not happen again.

      Otherwise UPND supporters will lose hope that nothing will change however we vote , voters distrusting the process is worse scenario than proving that PF rigged. We need to maintain the trust of voters and work towards avoiding a repeat and assure our voter base that we have this process sorted.

      Stop crying about 2015, most of your supporters , me included believe you. PREVENTIVE MEASURES MOST BE SORT AND IMPLEMEMTED SUGGESTIONS MADE TO ECZ

    • TO ME, HH IS PLAYING PSYCOLOGICAL MIND GAMES ON THE ECZ, KNOWING THAT THERE WILL BE ANOTHER POLL IN 18months. HE’S CREATING AN ATMOSPHERE AND PSYCH THAT SUGGESTS THAT AN EDGAR LUNGU VICTORY CANNOT BE GENUINE. BUT THESE TACTICS COULD WORK TO HIS DISADVANTAGE AND THEY IMPLY THAT HES SCRED OF EL AND CAN HIMSELF PROJECT ANOTHER LOSS TO THIS GUY, SO HE HAS TO CREATE AN ANSWER IN ADVANCE IN ORDER TO AVERT HUMILIATION… HOW SAD!

    • I would rather believe what HH has said than any PF minion yapping nonsense when ECZ has admitted to some irregularities.

      History shows that HH gets the last laugh when ever what he has said is misunderstood in the first place then later he is proved to be right.

      No one will enjoy stolen victory. Luo who went to ECZ to intimidate the ECZ staff is yet to know that she been dribbled. Many more will cry foul and begin to spill the beans about how they rigged the elections.

      The biggest loser will eventually be Lungu who will be scorned by the Bemba clique when they realise the mistake they made and decide to back HH in 2016.

    • @Wanzelu,
      Before you solidify your fallacies that “ECZ has admitted to some irregularities.”
      Read the letter again paying particular attention to where those irregularities were found. You will note that it states quite clearly that the irregularities “WHERE ON THE UPND’S” tabulations where (in their desperation to please their South Afrian financiers) twisted the higher votes for themselves just to be ahead and reflect their online polls.
      I am sorry, there is no way anybody would accept that HH was cheated to loosing the election.
      Go and sue ZNBC for posting wrong results. You never complained about winning Chingola when it was wrongly posted in UPND’s favour did you? If the vote was stolen, then UPND was there stealing too..

    • Ladies & Gentlemen,
      Please hold your breath and open your eyes. No need to beat the Skeleton! Listen up!
      Firstly those irregularities shouldn’t have existed, thus in itself fraudulent. Secondly, ECZ’s acceptance of disparities in the votes, shows that the whole elections where marred by “simple” but cunning way of swapping actual presidential results.
      Thirdly, even ZNBC broadcasted biased & wrong results. And forthwith, ECZ should have called the elections null & void hypothesis b’coz of the empirical evidence of vote swapping! Who knows the whole election results where swapped in favor of PF? I reckon thus how the rigging was done, confused the whole country with disparities. ZAF banned UPNDs monitors using its planes was unjustified!
      ECZ has failed.

Lets only watch as they weep and understand their despair. They are truly looking a very sorry sight. I hope they will recover quickly

    • I voted for Edgar Lungu, so there was no rigging as claimed by under 5 politician. The biggest problem HH trusted the endorsement from people like Lameck Mangani, Fat Hubert GBM, fined politician Felix Mutati, Convict Katele Kalumba, Thief Maureen Mwanawasa, Spent grain Daniel Munkombwe, Drug dealer VJ Mwanga. One man Party Charles Milupi, and the likes of Mucheleka.

  3. Of course the ECZ can verify stolen votes which were manipulated by ZAF. HH and his team were stopped from going to the polling stations in question by ZAF Why? HH and his team were not using any ZAF transport but their own, so why stop them? They were stopped so that the ZAF team could collude with polling agents and give wrong figures. If you read the Malawian Watchdog, you will know why HH will not petition the results in court because God is already working on the case! The same peophet who prophesied the ascendence of Edga Lungu to the throne has now predicted his down fall. GOD’S TIME IS THE BEST!

      If this is the calibre of accusations then I can see why HH is opting for social media and not the Courts.
      You mean to say that you do not know that security authorities will have to issue flying permits? And without specific authorisation from ECZ to allow campaign helicopters to fly after the campaign period is over (Not election and voting), The authorities (ZAF in this case) will NOT give you a flying permit.
      And as for your Malawian fake prophet, ask him to check with his counterpart in Nigeria TB Joshua.

    • @ISO, airspace is not a play ground for HH to be flying from one polling station to another during such a perilous time. If, say, he crashed accidentally or due to bad weather, would you not be the first one to say he was shot or something? You must praise ZAF for blocking him from playing ‘touch’ (akabwambe) in the air.

  4. Oh, talking about the UPND,

    Are these not the same people who said they had a copy of medical record for Edgar Lungu?
    Later they said they knew nothing about the issue, they were simply hearing about it in the press.
    You want to believe what UPND says? You can go ahead.

    Otherwise ECZ is to be commended 100%

    Am not sure the strategy UPND is using, of falsehood works – May be.
    But I doubt if it will win them more votes next year.

      Why go to UTH for medical review before going to a grueling AU meeting. The guy has no stamina for this work. He did not go for medical check up, he went for medical boosters and dialysis,

      It is expected that after the AU , he will again be tired as the boosters would have worn of so get will need another procedures, we know the game being played by the KOLA KLUX KLAN. EL is scared for his life because he was put their Asa cabbage , the same way Mwanawasa was allowed to be President.

      Samoa knows he doesn’t need to wait till 2021. He wants to be VP but RB and EL have put Inonge as VP as insurance that if the Kola Klux Klan speed up his sickness power will move west. So they have to…

    • What Hichilema is worried about is the impending exit of Mutati, Mucheleka, GBM and Mutale Nalumango even Canesius Banda from alliance partnership because it will again remain a Tonga Party and the little votes they got from Northern and Eastern Zambia will evaporate. Katele Kalumba will also not be around in 2016 as he is likely to be jailed. The nearest for HH and the best chance was this year when PF was in turm oil but come 2016 it will be a different ball game. Watch the space.

  5. HH is delusional and confused, the ECZ should really not waste time on this guy because he is not making sense to even his supporters.

    The truth is he was defeated by a disorganised PF fraught with internal wrangles and only started campaigning late, and despite good turn out in his strong holds and low turn out in PF strongholds, he still lost.

    He knows that PF will be a different animal in 2016, organised, their base energised and without internal wrangles and he wont have the head start in campaigns and he stands zero chance of defeating PF in a two horse race under the new constitution if he even makes it past the first round of voting.

    HH knows fully well that this was his only genuine chance and he came short and he can’t believe it!! Hence the hallucinations. Ignore him

    • Mutati is worried because he will not win his seat in Lunte under UPND and he knows it, Nalumango is worried that people in Kaputa will reject her on UPND ticket, GBM now knows that what is popular in Kasama is PF and not him nor HH so he is busy with plan B and Mucheleka is in trouble because the rival is already campaigning in his constituency and he now knows he will not make it on UPND ticket. So just watch the drama ahead as Edgar plans for 2016, remember he is going for a retreat and come 2016 he will win with a land slide.

    Let me tell you, you Monkeys that should your troubalism go out of hand, Tongas, Lozis and People from NW Province will rise against your barbaric behaviour and demand that you go back to your trees in Mucinga, Northern and Luapula Provinces. These three provinces are the only Bemba Provinces and no any other.

    The Tonga Blood you are spilling you haunt you, I am telling you the truth. And any Senior Party Member who indites the carders should be ready to face the rough of revenge.

    Tongas loves Zambians and they wouldn’t like it to get divided.

I think they are good, jovial, naturally outgoing, loving, intelligent and peaceful people. Anyhow, it is time UPND and HH stopped being tribal. It had not helped them and it will not at anytime. Continuing on this path means continuing to lose elections by UPND. Unfortunately, the party and its leadership never seem to learn.

      I know you want this forum to be as free and democratic as it can be. But FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY COMES WITH RESPONSIBILITIES. I do understand there is a thin line between hate speech and disagreeable speech, but I feel you can tell the later from the former. Clearly the one above is pure HATE SPEECH. Therefore, I feel you will do us all a service by NOT allowing this kind of hate speech on your site/blog.

It is only bitterness which has driven you to write such a comment. The children who are born from intermarriage of Southerners Northerners, Easterners and Westerner will fight you including people who think like you. To tell you the truth I love the Tongas, Bembas, Lundas, Ngonis and all tribes in Zambia because I have family because of intermarriage and friends. Shame to all who profess tribalism.

  15. It is indeed sad to note that people today are pelting hate speech on each other. Why on earth should you preoccupy yourselves with matters that do not contribute an ounce to your economic and social lives.

    For me, i think if each one of us who like posting hate speech could only turn one day and post something positive about the other person, all this tension around will be significantly subtracted.

    I think this social media can be used in a more positive manner than we are doing now. It is totally un-zambian. where have we thrown our cultural values?

    The way forward is that despite our diverse affiliations we can influence the current situation by at least sending an article that is talking about loving your enemy.

    Let us populate this page with positive articles.

Wake up folks. He is losing again in 2016

Tongas still saw through the appointment of edga lungu who is controlled by bembas. Who is really smart here? Bembas should not waste their time by thinking tongas will vote for a bemba by intimidation and insults. Anyone who resort to such tacts means he is defeated upstairs. If I was PF, I would take a different strategy of doing good to win the hearts of southerners. After all Tongas have nothing to lose because southern province has everything. If today we made every province a country, Muchinga, Luapula and Northern put together could not surpass the resources southern province has. Say cattle! Tourism! etc

    • ISO, sometimes ego-centricism can be blinding to realities of things. Be careful you do not become sick by thinking you have everything in Southern province and all other provinces have nothing. Do you really mean the rest of Zambia depends on Southern province for survival? Tourism is not only Victoria Falls. Economy is not only cattle. May I know your level of education? This will allow me to talk to you at your level. There is a difference of voting on party lines and on tribal lines. It was that people in Southern province voted on tribal line while other provinces voted on party lines. You re trying to tag in NW, W provinces, but this will not work because people in these provinces will not buy your idea of turning them into being Tongas when they are not. SP is isolating itself.

  20. Transposing means exchanging, putting red things in the bag which should contain green things and viceversa. It shows UPND played monkey tricks with election results when tallying. They were trying to steal votes from the mighty but humble PF. Job well done ECZ for stopping thieves in their tracks. There is talk of political violence continuing even when elections are behind us. Is it anyone’s guess as to who is behind this ugly scenario? If HH insists that he won elections he is giving ammunition to his blood thirst red beret thugs. The police should cage him

  23. I would like to agree with most of the bloggers on this site that it is the high time HH moved on. His song is now sounding like a broken record. HH greatest undoing is his mixing with losers. Mangani, Milupi, Mutati, Maureen are losers. In Eastern Province who is Mangani? Levy Ngoma delivered Sinda for HH in a short period, those are people to put in his campaign team and not Mangani or Canisius. In Northern maybe Mucheleka or Simbao are better than Mutati or GBM. In Central Province, he needs to scout another person because Chituwo, Shikapashya or Maureen will take him nowhere. In Western Province Sakwiba Sikota would have been a better bet but unfortunately he is in the PF camp. So he will have work there just like in North western. On the Copperbelt he will need to work extra hard.

    THE MAIN POINT WHY UPND WILL SONTINUE LOSING IS DUETO THE FACT THAT THE NAME OF THE PARTY AND THE PRESIDO ARE TOO LONG TO MEMORIZE ON THE VOTING DAY. THINK OF THE AREAS LIKE CHADIZA TO SAY, “I AM GOING TO VOTE FOR HAKAINDE HICHILEMA FOR UNITED PARTY FOR NATION DEVELOPMENT” AND ANOTHER SAY I AM GOING TO VOTE FOR EDGAR LUNGU OF PATRIOTIC FRONT. UPND IS SOMETIMES MISTAKEN FOR UNITED NATION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (UNDP) WHICH IS NOT FOUND ON THE BALLOT PAPER. TO A MAN AND A WOMAN FROM THE VILLAGE THESE OBSERVATION ARE REAL.

    It is indeed sad to note that people today are pelting hate speech on each other. Why on earth should you preoccupy yourselves with matters that do not contribute an ounce to your economic and social lives.

    For me, i think if each one of us who like posting hate speech could only turn one day and post something positive about the other person, all this tension around will be significantly subtracted.

    The way forward is that despite our diverse affiliations we can influence the current situation by at least sending an article that is talking about loving your enemy.

    When people don’t know when you are joking and when you are serious they will never take you serious. You remember the story of ‘boy and the lion’.
    The boy kept telling false stories; in the end nobody believed him even when it was true this time around.

    Earlier , I said:


    Oh, talking about the UPND,

    Are these not the same people who said they had a copy of medical record for Edgar Lungu?
    Later they said they knew nothing about the issue, they were simply hearing about it in the press.
    You want to believe what UPND says? You can go ahead.

    Otherwise ECZ is to be commended 100%

    Am not sure the strategy UPND is using, of falsehood works – May be.
    But I doubt if it will win them more votes next year.

    These are realities you can accept or deny. Up to…

      I totally believe that am a rational thinker and fair minded. The way the story of EL being sick and someone having a medical record could not develop because the Medical Doctor was about to break ethics.

      Now. Whether EL is fit or not is only conjecture. The truth maybe around the corner. We are yet to find out.

      I think the King makers in Zambia have been ECZ in Zambia. I was disturbed to note that the 2001, 2008 and 2015 elections the difference is within the standard deviation of cast votes.

      Should Upnd go to court to prove the allegations..probably not. It will be wasted effort as shown from 2001.

      You know sometimes I feel sad that the only true democratic elections we ever had were in 1991. Thereafter my doubts grow bigger day after day…

    You said you are a free thinker, right?
    If yes, I suggest we stick to that position.
    The free thinker theory contracts political and propagandist theories.
    A free thinker will not mistake an assumption for a fact; neither will he mistake an allegation for a fact.
    You say figures manipulated in northern provinces, when in fact you have just heard about this allegation and have no proof.
    In order to engage intellectually, we have to take assumption for assumption and fact for fact.
    We must be informed enough when speaking authoritatively.
    The figure you have given of 1000 and 3000; where did you get them?
    Are you referring to ZNBC errors in transmission which was questioned by every Zambian?
    ECZ made errors in airing results, which had no bearing on ECZ figures.

    I expect free thinkers like yourself and myself to be very consistent in our patterns of thought.
    When use the Medical Record Issue, you have tried to argue that it was because of ethical issues.
    May I remind you that the person who told the media and nation he had records in his custody, is the same person who later said he knew nothing.
    Are you telling me that medical ethics were introduced after his first statement? Or are you saying that these ethics were there even before but the individual involved was ignorant of them?
    Getting to another issue, the ECZ trucks that were impounded; what was the basis for suspicion? You may say vigilance, as it was claimed – but vigilance cant have basis? Can I suspect just because I feel like, or am I expected to have basis?

    and NOT, ‘ECZ made errors in airing results, which had no bearing on ECZ figures.”

    ECZ figures were correct, and were verified both by UPND and PF working with ECZ. And ECZ explained this time and again, that ZNBC airing of the results was erroneous and , thus, ZNBC was stopped from airing ECZ election results are their (ZNBC) system was making errors when airing. This airing by ZNBC had no bearing on the individual figures and totals of ECZ, which were in fact correct.

I have looked at the clear and straight forward response from ECZ chaired by the able leadership of Justice Mambilima (I listened to the lady each time she explained issues -ah man, there is great integrity and value there!!) and the woman among women, madam Priscilla Isaacs (very balanced and intelligent).

    It is clear that UPND’s schedule of results was rigged. If this was done intentionally by UPND, then they attempted to rig the elections. But thank God for the efforts made so far by our able electoral commission who have put up many transparency controls, open even to the public eye like mine, their attempt failed.
    But if UPND simply made their mistakes in tabulation of results (and were not looking for a way of crying foul) then at this time I expect that the story would shift.
