UPND victory reports are mere speculations-Davies Chama

Headlines UPND victory reports are mere speculations-Davies Chama

The ruling PF has rubbished predictions from the Economic Intelligence Unit that the opposition UPND will win the August 2016 elections.

The EIU in its April forecast report predicted that the UPND will emerge victorious in the August elections especially that former Vice President Miles Sampa and Democratic Front leader Miles Sampa have partnered to support the UPND.

But in an interview, PF Secretary General Davies Chama said the EIU April forecast is mere speculations and that the PF is not bothered by such reports.

Mr Chama said it is impossible for the UPND to win this year’s poll alleging that the party is not popular.

He said the PF is guaranteed of victory because of the many developmental projects it has implemented.

Mr Chama said the EIU is an organised that depends on biased analysis from people that are aligned to the UPND.

He said the PF broke off from a pact with the UPND after it realised that the UPND was not as popular as it claims.

Mr Chama said the PF has delivered unprecedented development in the four and half years it has been in government to warrant its staying in power.

He said the PF interacts with the real voters on the ground unlike the UPND that relies on fictitious predications for its campaigns.

“The real people on the ground know that the PF is the only party for Zambia, these EIU people can write whatever they want to write but they don’t even vote. The PF has delivered and Zambians know this and this is why come August 11, they will vote for the PF,” Mr Chama said.

Mr Chama said the EIU does not have any credibility and authority to predict who will win the next general election in Zambia.

“The problem with the UPND is that they live in their own world, they think they are very popular and yet they are not. This is their undoing in most elections,” he said.

The PF Secretary General said the ruling party has even started entering the traditional strongholds of the UPND.

“We are now very strong in Southern Province, Western, North Western and Eastern Province. We have a national wide appeal and that makes us even more strong,” he said.

  1. EIU is a highly respected publication that will not issue speculative reports. They have a reputation to protect. They predicted Sata’s victory in 2011. August 11, Edgar and PF kayak babele

    • When EIU predicated Sata’s victory you didnt call it mere speculations.

      Chama, dont forget that Lungu beat HH by only 1%, this is not a gap to get comfortable with….. PF has messed up a lot and exit from government is inevitable.

    • Where did Sata get such incompetent pipo from?They don’t inspire not only from their looks even when they speak.Ba Chama come 11/08 you just have to go.

    • Finally Mr Chama, you have found your voice. Where is your vice as she is the one who is always talking on this subject.

    • Predictions that HH is the more likely winner this year, are not a surprise. PF have kicked themselves out of the Zambian presidency. It will call for a miracle or rampant rigging for them to remain in power.

    • EIU predicated RB victory in 2011 and NOT Sata victory. In 2015 they predicted HH victory and NOT ECL victory. In 2014 they predicated Labour party victory in the UK and Not Conservatives.
      In short am saying, EIU is a bunch of grade2 researchers from bweengwa. There corresponding partners of journalist are on the payroll of Kachema. And they are also relying on fake white man called scott. Wait these chaps will stop dreaming about Zambian elections after August 2016. Whenever they will be hearing ati elections in Zambia, they will be running away as if ni chibanda chibapisha!

    • DAVIES IT IS GOOD TO DREAM. KEEP ON DREAMING IF YOU THINK PF WILL STILL ENJOY THE 2011 GLORY. IJANZA KUMBELE! VIVA HH VIVA! VIVA UPND VIVA! CHANGE, HERE WE COME!

    • How did this guy get into national leadership? He`s so low in leadership credentials. He calls EIU not a credible publication? Really? Does he even understand the words he`s using?

    • Only a fool with a slanting forehead like that would respond to mere speculations, that kind of forehead has being scientifically proven to be a sign of more aggressive behavior.

    • SATA’S VICTORY WAS OBVIOUS SUCH THAT EVEN A F00L WOULD HAVE PREDICTED. SATA’S POPULARITY EVEN IN HIS POSTHUMOUS STATE CAN NOT BE COMPARED TO HH. HH WAS AND STILL IS NOTHING AS COMPARED TO THE LATE SATA. HH AND UPND CAN’T WIN ELECTIONS WHEN PF HAS GRONE TOO STRONG. HH AND UPND’S CHANCES WAS LAST YEAR WHEN PF WAS IN TATTERS. NOT NOW WHEN PF HAS EVEN GONE INTO UPND’S BEDROOM. ANYWAY, IN A DEMOCRACY EVERYONE IS ALLOWED TO DREAM AND EIU CAN DREAM WITH UPND.

    • Where has Chama been all along? Was this monkey finishing off the maize field? PFools rubbished an international credit rating agency for voicing on the Zambian economy. This is their fatal trait. We have liars and thieves running govt.

    • PETER STOP DREAMING IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY JUST KEEP QUIET. PF SHOULD ONLY BOAST ABOUT BRIBING RIGHT NOW TASILA IS IN CHIPATA TO BRIBE VOTERS BUT ZAMBIANS WILL VOTE FOR UPND. MY FAMILY BENEFITED FROM THE BICYCLES BRIBES BUT WILL VOTE FOR UPND AND ARE USING THOSE BICYCLES TO CAMPAIGN FOR UPND DOOR TO DOOR.

  2. Chama’s tone has changed in recent months. He’s rarely in the limelight. I believe he feels sidelined by his boss in preference for Mumbi Phiri.

  3. Predictions are always on HH’s Side but the Outcome awe sure. What happened last year…?almost all opinion polls and predictions favoured HH. RESULTS……………….

    • @4GHOST, JUST LET THEM DREAM ON. I LIKE THE WAY THEY COMPARE THE LATE MC SATA’S SITUATION TO UNDER 5’s. THESE ARE TWO DIFFERENT ENTITIES WITH THE LATE MC SATA TOTALLY HAVING HAD DIFFERENT APPROACH AND LANGUAGE FOR THE PEOPLE WHICH EVEN HH HAS TRIED TO IMITATE BUT COMPLETELY FAILED. HH HAS STARTED LIFTING BABIES, HH HAS STARTED GOING TO THE SAME St IGNITIUS CHURCH, BUYING CIBWABWA AT OPEN MARKETS, TALKING LIKE SATA, WALKING LIKE SATA THINKING PEOPLE WILL CHANGE THE WAY THEY LOOK AT HIM AND SEE MC SATA IN HIM- NOTHING. THE ONLY THING LEFT IS PROPOSING TO MARRYING KASEBA- WHICH IS NOT VERY FAR LOOKING AT THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING.

  4. who are the remaining heavy weights in PF,no one.lol lol Lungu is Shaka the Zulu who chased everybody around only to remain with Mumbi Phiri and Nawakwi.Bo inonge is the last disappointed woman.She will teach Lungu kwa bulozi.

  5. History always repeats itself and yet people fail to learn from its lessons. Satamic cult UPND has been beaten countless times at the real polls, not these fake propagandist polls. What is EIU? They’ve never even been to Chavuma, Kalabo, Chama, Sesheke or Shangimbo. (HH) and kindergarten sycophants, you cant win elections by relying on Nega Nega votes and fake influence from disgruntled corrupt elements like GBM and Miles. You will cry loudest because come August, the Zambians will chose prosperity over pomposity. We are thankful to those who voted rationally for the PF in 2011, 2014. (HH) musatanyo, you missed your chance when you rejected Late Sata’s pact. Proud F0OL

    • No chance for Tongas. PF kuntashi. Whose EIU. If you put a Tonga in State house, Zambia is in big trouble. Akaso and discrimination will be the order of the day.

    • Kudos and CBu

      Bembas and Tongas are so intermarried that hoodlums like you can’t separate.

      Bemba s and Tongas alike are suffering from PF economic disaster. Besides is PF a.Bemba party for you to be worried of a small tribe in the south?

    • Comment:
      you really bitter with hh man! I have always followed your commentaries on hh, imagine God says he has (hh)s to be a president where would you be? would you hang yourself or go to heaven to change God’s thought.You re calling him to be satanic based on circumstantiality kind of evidence. Let us try to be liberal in spite our of differences in terms of ideological settings.Check also your picture profile who knows what you are, who you are?????? lungu or hh let move on!

    • @M.Kudo,it hurts you so much when you hear that HH and UPND are becoming more popular in Zambia than pf hence you resort to insulting HH.I agree with you that history repeats itself_KK thought he would not be removed from power,MMD thought it would not be removed from power and now PF government and supporters like you, think PF cannot be removed from power. I think you have an empty, dry and hard skull. Propose me so that I give you some grey matter and that skull of yours will no longer be empty and dry.

    • Realism in Zambian Politics isn’t just believing into imaginary winning BUT about having political skills of how to do it and how to win it. From my own stand point, there is NO Political Party at the moment which is more acceptable and more popular than PF

  6. Wait until may,11 and see how UPND campaign teams will swim across Zambia.It is not only HH but the entire UPND machinery of more than 200,000.Each province will have a high powered delegation.VIVA HH.We shall work like bees or Red Ants.Victory is certain.

    • Please don’t disclose the UPND secrets at this time!!! This is a battle….don’t disclose your arsenal too early.

    • YES! LIKE THEY SWAM LAST ELECTIONS. IT IS NOT UN USUAL FOR UPND TO SWIM ON CAMPAIGNS AND ON THE MEDIA INCLUDING OPINION POLLS.

    • @Peter Pan: in forecasting, a 1% margin of error is immaterial. That’s how close Lungu won the last election, something that rocked PF because they thought HH was unpopular. And you should be worried because Lungu’s leadership was untested then. Now we know he is an incompetent flip-flopping violent and drunkard bully who spends his private time partying with biatches.

  7. One thing that can not be taken away from PF is that there is visible infrastructure development, particularly roads, although project are carry-overs from MMD. Not withstanding this, people have also experienced severe hardships under PF. It may be difficult to promote PF now than four years when they delivered a power packed knocked out punch on the MMD because people are experiencing escalated political violence, cholera, mealie meal shortages, high cost of living, power cuts, intermittent supply of water and other services. PF’s continued reign will depend on what the citizens value most, infrastructure development versus good health, stable and sound education system, and an affordable cost of living. PF’s pact with MMD is a trick move given that people rejected the later due to…

    • Chester what you have said is rubbish. What infrastructure development are you talking about. These PF fools borrowed money that our children will have to suffer to repay the international community and inflated the cost of the roads for their money in their pockets (commissions) The 2.5 billion wasted Eurobond could have built many more roads in Zambia…..stupid *****s.

  8. I remember the Post and Muvi TV did the same in the past election, but the result favorited the humble EL and PF. UPND wins in the media, PF wins elections.

    • Hubble my foot!! You are such an idi,ot to be brain washed in such manner, how do you confuse dullness/clueless with humbleness?

    • As again get your brain tested before you pronounce ECL humble, LUNGU is very cruel, heartless Don’t care attitude anyone voting for PF is a fool because high cost of living affects everybody regardless of who you are

  9. Pf exit on 11 / 8 is inevitable. . UPND has become very strong on the ground in every province. Pf is no longer popular and will be wired in first round.

    • Do your own check on the Copperbelt, Kitwe and Kalulushi even Ndola and you will see that the ground has shifted significantly to the UPND. But then again, talk is cheap….go and do your own research on the ground:

      Mealie meal, groceries, saladi, sugar, soap, boom, milk, everything at all time high driven by high double digit inflation. Sure mealie meal climbing by 400% in a year!! Our kids have no jobs because PF have increased their retirement age by another 10 years!! No job, No Money, High Borrowings, High Taxes, High Suffering!!

      And with this mayhem, why would anyone want to consign themselves to another term of suffering.

    • What are colleagues in PF should have done is to seriously have taken that whisker victory with humility…..PF won in January 2015 on the back of Sata and his demise and their plea to complete the term of bashikulu.

      In my view, they could have gained traction if they had given the button to Miles Sampa who would have collaborated well with Guy Wachikoti. But ECL cut his nose to spite his face. And the rest is history…the deck of cards crumbled!

      There is NOTHING and I repeat absolutely ZERO that PF can do to reverse the economy to pre Jan 2015. The head winds are too strong and the ballast of the storm unforgiving. Elections are won not by rhetoric but food and shelter for a government in power.

      And no lie will do this time as PF have exhausted their inventory of good…

  10. most zambians think humble is wise, its not. lungu is not humble. we need intelligent leader not dull or what they call humble! may be churches need humble leaders, not a country. we nee brilliance

  11. Latest news!!!! sadly another road traffic accident involving post bus in chibombo area and has claimed many innocent lives whats going on Zambia????

  12. Let’s wait and see but what I know is most people would not risk having a Capitalist as President. Farmer Input Support Programme, mass infrastructure projects, dual citizenship for all Zambians including some of you abroad that have been insulting ECL all these initiatives will either be stalled or completely removed if HH and his crew of very selfish and bitter people enter office. UPND are on record of saying they would reverse the dual citizenship clause as well as cut down on government staff.
    PF is winning the August elections!
    2016 ECL nafuti

    • @2020vision

      You absolutely and fabulously wrong…..UPND believes the bedrock of the economy is agriculture. Brace for herds of cattle on the pristine grazing lands of Luapula and Chambeshi plains / swamps. We shall make Zambia a net beef exporter.

      One of the key initiative is the massive fish re-stocking of the bangweulu which has been depleted of fish. We shall restore the dignity of our folks in Luapula especially. There is currently too much suffering, and although Western Province say they are underdeveloped, I beg to differ.

      Maize will grow in abundance in Muchinga and Mbala will be awash with beans etc.

      Here comes Kachema musuma!!

    • You are just a baboon, as lost as PF. If you are winning, why are you killing innocent Zambians one after the other in accidents. We know what you are doing. Repent!

  13. Ati acelareted development wil make pf return power i dont think so the cost of living comes first development second wth this hardship pf will lose

  14. Mwila is living in denial. PF exit is inevitable. People are just fed-up with the nightmare. There are brand new voters that are already frustrated by PF inability to deliver even simple things like mealie-meal. They boast about constructing roads, but is that a priority? At the expense of eating? Chiluba once asked what’s the point of erecting buildings (roads) at which you point at on an empty stomach? Building roads before buying food is itself a sign of lack of wisdom. Not very clever.

  15. chama (2016) The problem with the UPND is that they live in their own world, they think they are very popular and yet they are not

  16. WYNTER Kabimba says people must be careful with the choices they make on August 11 because they will end up with a government that is worse than PF. – , Kabimba cautioned Zambians against voting on impulse on August 11. “Zambians have voted in the past. Just going back to 1991, they voted out UNIP and brought in the MMD. At the end of the 20 years of the MMD, it proved to be worse than the UNIP government that they had voted out

    • And of cause PF turned out to be worse than MMD by far. Kabimba was saying vote for Rainbow instead of UPND because PF IS a bygone. Why can’t you understand English you *****. ?

  17. President Lungu is as sharp as President Obama and believe you me come August 2016, the man will be spelling out his developmental economic activities from State House. There is no opposition strong enough to unseat the PF. PF has a strong backbone and foot print all they need to do is to be focused.
    Have you noticed that whenever PF deals and overcomes with some economic challenges, the opposition gets lost deeper and deeper.
    Its only under the PF that Zambia has experienced the economic development being undertaken in this country. Surely, eating will always and has always been there but what supports that eating is development which PF is doing. So, the opposition must forget forming government especially under the 50%+1 requirement.

    • There’s no evidence for your claim. Lungu is the worst President Zambia will ever have. A thieving drunk with violent tendencies will never compare to Obama.

  18. 1 KINGS 3 vs. 5 the lord appeared to him {Solomon (Lungu)} in the dream and asked him; what would you like me to give you? Vs 9 give me wisdom to rule your pipo (Zambians). The lord was pleased that Solomon ( Lungu)had not asked for riches (like HH and GBM) I will give you what you have asked for. Chapter 5 Solomon (Lungu) prepares to build the Temple while HH built himself a very big house. Come August 11 Solomon (Lungu) as indicated in chapter 6 is coming to build the Temple. Solomon’s enemy starts with HA (1 Kings 11:14-16) and lungu’s enemy starts with HA. Will the Edomites (UPND) and their leader (HA) win in 2011?

  19. Over The Horizon (2016) President Lungu is as sharp as President Obama and believe you me come August 2016, the man will be spelling out his developmental economic activities from State House. There is no opposition strong enough to unseat the PF. PF has a strong backbone and foot print all they need to do is to be focused.
    Have you noticed that whenever PF deals and overcomes with some economic challenges, the opposition gets lost deeper and deeper.

    • Lungu will be eaten by maggots as in Acts if.you continue blasphemy that he is a god,!

      A true Catholic wouldn’t agree to be lifted up vainly as you are doing.

  20. On the media HH will always and come to the actual voting they loose big time. Viva ECL the down to earth president.

    Wina azalila come August 14th when ECL will still be at state house.

    • If social media is not important why has PF been spending millions of dollars of public funds in blocking The Watchdog? The Chinese govt spend billions in controlling Internet access. The truth is that every blow against an incompetent and brutal regime counts.

  21. Can Zambians be easily duped? I hope not and this is really something you can only pull off with a child.

    I do not think any adult would say you are a brilliant let alone humane to get a hug mortgage in HIS or HER name and then present this house as a gift and evidence of your hardwork for their benefit!

    All infrastructure being carried out are being funded by loans that PF has got using Zambians’ current and future earnings. And perhaps this is understandable. What is unacceptable is to lie that the infrastructure development we are now seeing is a result of PF efforts. NO. This is each Zambian bearing heavy burden for the next century.

  22. EIU has failed in the past. for one thing, how do you call the results of an election 4 months before the polls? Not even in the US where predictions are based on polling people on the ground. In this case it is pure speculation most likely influenced by those with an interest in Zambia’s resources. You have to remember these so called think tanks have a slant to the right and are pro business. The whole article is void of a crucial element, statistics. There are no hard core figures to back up the assertion. You honestly think Kapita’s defection to PF is insignificant, or MMD’s alliance with PF?

  23. HH shall keep on winning on opinion polls but ON ACTUAL VOTING DAY PF SHALL CARRY THE DAY AS ALWAYS!!THIS EIU PREDICTED VICTORY FOR RB IN 2011 AND HH IN 2015,BOTH ELECTIONS WERE WON BY DIFFERENT LEADERS.surely how can EIU say that hh will win because of Miles Sampa and Guy Scott’s endorsement?this is shocking because these 2 have almost zero support on the ground as many Zambians have seen that both hate Edgar Lungu with a passion for no proper reason!!CAN VOTERS PROMOTE POLITICS OF HATRED CONDUCTED BY THESE 2?NOT IN ZAMBIA.if anything gbm will add more votes to upnd than miles sampa and guy scott.Dr Guy Scott has no tribe or province to follow him!!THATS WHY HH CRIES AFTER LOSING BECAUSE HE IS MISLEAD BY WRONG OPINION POLLS!!PF IS BY FAR THE FAVOURITE TO WIN 2016 ELECTIONS!!

    • Keep on dreaming, you have only 13 weeks to live on cloud 9 and then you will land like thud on mother earth.

    • OUT GOING LUNGU HAS NOTHING TO TELL THE ZAMBIANS, HE ONLY DEPENDS ON BRIBING THINKING HE WILL WIN, NOTHING, WE WILL GET THE BRIBES AND DO A DONT KUBEBA VIVA HH VIVA UPND

  24. I am telling you zambians, should you miss this window of escape that God is giving you & happen to vote pf back you will have yourself to blame. Worse than zimbwabwe, zambia is going to become. pf has borrowed carelessly, they borrowed even from individuals in neighbourin countries. Where do you think they got the money & bicycles that they are distributing for free? they will not have money for paying back the loans, and for growing the economy, it will be rhe most miserable 5 yrs zambia has never experienced, mark my words!

  25. I am telling you zambians, should you miss this window of escape that God is giving you & happen to vote pf back you will have yourself to blame. Worse than zimbwabwe, zambia is going to become. pf has borrowed carelessly, they borrowed even from individuals in neighbourin countries. Where do you think they got the money & bicycles that they are distributing for free? they will not have money for paying back the loans, and for growing the economy, it will be rhe most miserable 5 yrs zambia has never experienced, mark my words!!!

  26. If social media does not matter, how come PF has spent millions of dollars of public funds blocking the Watchdog? Because they know every blow counts.

  27. I agree – all PF threats like 400%electricity tariff increase will happen if PF wins. Selling cheap electricity to Zimbabwe while Zambians are in darkness, exporting all maize while Zambians are starving, exchange controls etc All the issues PF have flip-flopped on will be implemented.

  28. Ba Davies Chama, learn to be objective. When somebody warns why not take the warning seriously instead you dress them down. It is like a doctor telling you that you are sick and you need to take measure about your health, you tell the doctor that he is merely speculating about your health, anyway, keep on dreaming, August is just about 13 weeks away.

  29. CHAMA, YOU SHOT MUSHAUKWA , YOUR HISTORY IS CRINAL THATS WHY LUNGU SIDE LINS YOU FOR MUMBI SO JUST KEEP ON DREAMING WITH INFRA STRUCTURE AND ROADS . WE DONT EAT NEITHER OF THE TWO, THATS WHY YOU WILL LOOSE THIS YEAR HEAVILY TO HH

  30. I’M TIRED OF SAME SLOGANS used by our coleags in the ruling party,pleas people, under 5s are those who call others under5s.

  31. We did not put this Government in place to put food on our tables but create an enabling situation which is conducive to attract people to invest in those areas. And this exactly what the PF has done and continues to do.
