President Lungu gestures at the PF campaign launch rally

The ruling Patriotic Front launched its manifesto and a new Chitenge material to a record crowd of an estimated 120,000, believed to be Zambia’s first true mega rally.

The new National Heroes Stadium with capacity of 60,000 was filled quickly by its supporters around 11 Hours and overflowed with all the stands, pitch and outside full rising to an estimated crowd of 120,000.

The event was spiced with performances by some of the country’s leading musicians.

By the time President Edgar Lungu was arriving at 14:30 Hours, the PF supporters who filled the stadium beyond its designed capacity went into a welcoming frenzy and cheers.

In his speech, President Lungu promised to build on the infrastructure development program by creating jobs and food security in his next 5 years if re-elected into office.

And President Lungu used to occasion to announce that Vice President Inonge Wina will be his running mate.

And Mrs Wina thanked President Lungu for making her running mate in the 11th August election.

She has told president Lungu that she is shocked with the appointment but that she is happy that she has chosen as running mate.

In response, President Lungu told Mrs Wina that there was no need to substitute when a player is scoring goals.

He has told her to work very hard to win the election.

    • That is as surprising as a murder inn Detroit US, getting solved.( sarcastic…)

      She handed him the leadership by lying to Guy Scott.

      She is past her sell by date.

      She is offers nothing at all, honestly this will hurt In the long run.

      Even Mumbi Phiri as distasteful as she is , has some personality than this Wina.

      Sorry i just don’t know what she offers at all.

      Thanks

    • It is not only numbers, his message was also rich in content. Workable programs designed to improve lives of people if he can be given necessary support. I listened to UPND message too but it sounded hollow to me. HH’s message lacked the methodology!

    • God is great. It is a done deal deal for HH. Inonge Wins is a walkover. She has no constituency and can’t even win as MP in her previous constituency. You can’t get power from a bemba and ignore them. Bemba’s now are moving enmass to UPND where they will have a Bemba Veep at least. moreover western province is UPND second bedroom. Plus Lozi’s can’t support a PF government that has been dribbling them since 2011. Thank you God for this mistake. Mutati would have delivered more than Inonge.

    • Just look at how hungry and hopeless the people are in the last picture. I can guarantee you that 75% of the people in this crowd have no sustainable jobs or cannot even afford three meals a day but yet the go support someone who increases his salary three times within a year, charters a plane for $300,000 when they are suffering. I always wonder why some Zambians will never learn a lesson. I am suspecting that these people went for the music rather than Lungu.

    • INONGE WINA IS UST THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR RUNNING-MATE. SHE IS FULLY PATRIOTIC, LOYAL, HARD-WORKING, EQUALLY HUMBLE, AND SHE HAS DEEP KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF NOT ONLY POLITICAL ISSUES BUT ALSO ECONOMIC AND INDUSTRIAL ISSUES. SHE IS A VERY LISTENING AND UNDERSTANDING LADY. SHE FULLY DESERVES THIS GESTURE FROM ECL. AND AS YOU HAVE PUT IT- IT’S A “DONE DEAL”. I FULLY SUPPORT HER.

    • When engineers design anything they always put in a FACTOR OF SAFETY. This is why the stadium was able to withstand the crowd of over 100,000 although it was designed for 60,000. In earth quake prone areas there is factor to take care of seismic forces. Long live the engineering profession.

      This indeed was a “Mega DONCHI KUBEBA Rally” -am sure all the kaponyas bussed to the stadium enjoyed the day – surely a True “Sonta epo ule lye!!”

  1. Meanwhile, Honourable Madam Inonge Wina, mother of the nation has been named Presidential Running Mate for the PF as Kaponya (HH) fails to verify GBM’s grade 12 status. GBM grade 6 drop out has given UPND Kasama Central to his qualified daughter Sibongile. Canicius Banda has been dribbled and flown out to South Africa on holiday, leaving UPND shenanigans to the blood thirsty scavengers, Hungry Hyenas and vultures. Nkombo has been ousted like a rat. Miles Sata, Mulenga Sampa and Maureen Mwana Wansala and Scott Mmembe are still destabilising UPND. Meanwhile Kaponya (HH) tries to polish his Satamic image with 500 crooked Bishops. But meanwhile 2021, Western Province shall lead the Zambian Presidency. Kudos!

    • PF has delivered the Presidency to Western Province. This is how politics should be. From Levy, to RB, to Sata, to Lungu and now to Wina. This good for our democracy. Let us not be dictators like Kaponya (HH) for 10 years failing to win elections. No wonder he has failed to announce the Running Mate. Dictator Kaponya (HH) wants to be President and Running Mate to himself

    • Madam Inonge Wina you are a true Mother to the Nation and your children are our people. We have such a wise and humble, talented, God-fearing President who is leading our nation to greater heights. Thank you to the PF Leadership for having a focussed, organised and mature leadership. We have now remained clean and strong, very united and all we have to do now is point to the projects we have completed over the last 5 years. Meanwhile others think that coercing 500 Bishops can clean their Satamic FreeMasson cult behaviour

    • I know it’s about numbers but I think politicians (whether UPND, FDD, PF, MMD) put so much stress on themselves trying to fill up the rallies with people. Sometimes I feel rallies are meaningless because the people who attend have already made up their minds on who to vote for.

  6. I am disappointed the PF have not stated their plans/vision. LT has a big headline but no substance in the story, what is it that people should expect in the next 5 years. Are the people going to eat infrastructure. President Lungu should take advantage of such occasions to address issues that will improve the economy and their lives.

    0

    0
    • That is because Lungu has no plan or vision for the country. Just himself

  7. Not impressive,with all those buses from all the 10 provinces ,I can see some empty seats ya orange,so which full full capacity , just because open wings were filled up doesn’t translate to full stadium capacity .

The country side is saying sonta apowabomba. my translation as as a bemba is that “people are saying we c an not remove a working president” ECL has achieved what others failed to achieve in 27 years, 10 years, 7 years, 1 1/2 3 years”. ECL is an achiever whether you like it or not. ECL State Councel for president 2016.

    • David, sorry that the numbers at the P F rally have confused you. The Party President, Edgar Changwa Lungu, clearly out lined what the P F will do in the next five year once the people give them another mandate. The P F have proved that they can work, and surely lets us give E C L his five year term in office. Please learn to be objective. If you are a lazy BAAM, them you can’t see the use of infrastucture, because you have a small brain.

  14. If UPND called a rally at same stadium today, even without free publicity by ZNBC and use of state resources and musicians, it can fill the stadium. That is Lusaka, the capital city by the way. In short, the attendance is no reason for celebration. MMD danced with confidence after the mother of all rallies; so meticulously arranged in Mandevu, only to lose. Worse still, EL cannot address crowds and that was a huge anticlimax…it showed immediately what people came for!

  16. Honestly speaking, picking Inonge Wina might seem to be a good move but this is a very big mistake by Lungu because Mrs Wina has passed her sale by date. The woman is 75 years and by the time the 5 year term ends if at all the PF wins she will be completely finished. She is supposed to retire after this elections. She is a stumbling to would be young vibrant women aspiring to be politicians. Anyway it is wishful thinking that she would e one day the president of Zambia.

  18. Ba LT, did you count the people at the stadium in excess of the stadium capacity? 120,000 estimated attendance is not a reason to feel euphoric. For God’s sake, those people came from all over the country! Lusaka population is pushing towards 3 million.Let us suppose the attendance was 120,000. That means Lusaka contributed 90,000. Where were the other 2.5m plus people? The popularity yardstick used by PF is therefore flawed.

  21. Bemba’s dribbled again by Edgar. I wonder what Mutati, Harry Kalaba etc are now thinking. He made Mutati run around and hijacking Nevers Mumba’s presidency only to be told on the very day of overthrowing Nevers Mumba that too late, madam Inonge is already on the throne. I wonder where Dora, Luo, etc are now. They’ve been hit unbelievably. Any way for UPND its a day of celebration. But knowing Edgar, tomorrow he can change and name another running mate.

In fact it won’t be long before we hear that cadres are complaining of non payment of money promised for attending this rally.

Shallowness, lacking substance and idleness of the mind is what can lead people to start arguing about crowd numbers instead of critically analyzing UPND’s 10 point plan and PF’s manifesto or whatever it is.

  27. PF are excited after taking cadres from all corners of the country to Lusaka. How can Chagwa win elections with his pathetic performance in his 12 months in office? All the industries would close and bank interest rates would be over 100% if by an unfortunate miracle Chagwa found his way back to statehouse after 11th August.
    It’s only PF cadres that rate Chagwa a total failure as a performer

  28. THE FACT THAT THE STADIUM WAS FULL BY TEN HOURS SHOULD TELL YOU A STORY. IT WAS FILLED BY PEOPLE WHO CAME FROM AFAR AND ARRIVED IN THE NIGHT AND EARLY MORNING. OTHERS WENT FOR FREE ENTERTAINMENT. IN MY VIEW PF ARE FOOLING THEMSELVES. IN KITWE PEOPLE WALKED LONG DISTANCES TO ATTEND THE RALLY NOT FOR ENTERTAINMENT. IT’S EASY TO FEEL UP THE STADIUM GIVEN ITS LOCATION WHICH IS NOT THE CASE WITH FREEDOM PARK.

    • MANOMAMBULWA,

      UPND are the ones fooling themselves. Early in the morning on Saturday, I witnessed thousands of people walking to Heroes Stadium voluntarily from as far as Kalingalinga and Mutendere. If people came from outside Lusaka, should that surprise you? My foot! This was expected because this was a national inaugural rally to flag of the PF campaign! Even the UPND rally at Freedom Park was supposed to have the same national character, but it fell far short in size compared to the PF rally even though the UPND bused in supporters from all parts of the Copperbelt and beyond. By the way, can you tell us who HH’s running mate is?

  29. When people say a good number of bloggers are are outside Zambia, sometimes you may doubt it but with what transpired today at Heroes Stadium and at Freedom Park in Kitwe, I think they are right. How does somebody find it possible to argue with numbers physically seen? I thought this would be an opportunity for UPND to re-strategise in the remaining three months to gain as much numbers from Lusaka as possible. The best way to win in life is first to acknowledge the reality on the ground then take practical steps to address the challenge then one emerges a winner. But to say those multitudes came from other provinces is self denial. Ok UPND has work to do. Even their Kitwe rally did not reflect the assertions of that miners are angry with PF.

  33. Just look at how hungry and hopeless the people are in the last picture. I can guarantee you that 75% of the people in this crowd have no sustainable jobs or cannot even afford three meals a day but yet the go support someone who increases his salary three times within a year, charters a plane for $300,000 when they are suffering. I always wonder why some Zambians will never learn a lesson. I am suspecting that these people went for the music rather than Lungu.

      Let’s be real my dear friend….you don’t have to sit and wait for your govt to spoon feed you….building or developing a country is a joint responsibility..so whether you are UPND or PF we all have the responsibility to help develop Zambia….and by the way those beautiful souls in the last picture are NOT HUNGRY AND HOPELESS….please find better words to describe my Zambian family…..it doesn’t matter whether they are UPND or PF or FDD…as long as they are Zambians they are my people

      August 11 vote PF ( Edgar )

    • @Katondo boys. The reality is people are suffering, hungry, jobless. You name it and it should be called as it is. After borrowing 2 billion USD. Can PF account for all that money? and how exactly it has improved people’s lives?? There is more crime today in Zambia than any other time our country’s history? There is more poverty today in Zambia than any other time in Zambia history? There is more jobless people in Zambia than any other time in Zambia history? There is more corruption today than any other time in Zambia history? There is more breach of rule of law in Zambia today than any other time in Zambia’s history? All in all, Zambia has become unstable in various ways: economic, social etc. What can Lungu claim he has done to change this?

  35. I am sick of this allusion to “infrastructure development” by Lungu. The prioritising is wrong – or at least it has to go hand in hand with development that has a human face and actually improves the quality of life (industry, sustainable agriculture policy that makes food a basic commodity not a luxury, reliable energy, water, sanitation, a health and social care pathway, sewerage systems, information technology that statistically informs planners of the demographics and social needs) In short, what’s the point of roads that do not transport local produce to local industry? Or dodgy buildings without medicine or proper health personnel?
    By the way, Kigali City (Rwanda) is 2016 city of the year. Cleanliness, but also progress in the human development index.

  36. UPND and its Supreme Leader HH cannot win the coming elections because they have no manifesto on which to lean on… Their manifesto is reactionary to what ever the PF does…UPND has no clue how campaigns are done because they consider themselves to be intelligent and insult the ordinary people of Zambia who support the PF…The truth of the matter is that the Supreme Leader is a Trojan Horse for the imperialist and he thinks the can propel him to State House no wonder he overrates himself together with some UPND supporters who worship him…

  37. Here’s the thing. During signing of the constitution the stadium was empty and pf was embarrsed. So this time they hired buses to collect cadres from all over the country to fill up stadium… The results of this.. One of the buses carrying cadres back to Ndola was in an accident and people died. Sincerely how desperate And selfish is this Ba pf? Using innocent people and now someone’s mother someone’s father has died. And for pipo like kudos .. Yes for now u can enjoy the cheap Tt u re given to blog but think of a future u want your children to grow in.

  38. UPND you have just been clobbered on this one you never expected it. PF has strong mobilisation on the ground while UPND has strong mobilisation on social media. Don’t think that it will be easy this time around because PF is more than ready to defend its strongholds. Lusaka is very much PF don’t cheat yourselves. Its unfortunate that those friend from Copperbelt were found in an accident.

    UPND you have no clear understanding of what alternatives you need to propose to move PF support base. PF has worked so please don’t think that by just saying Ubunga wadula then people will follow you. PF has solutions to the challenges and they are solving them you just know how to complain.

    Hard luck guys the writing is on the wall just start accepting that August will be a very bad month for…

    • Upwi n d is for educated people that’s why they are very popular online. It’s for those with degrees, MBAs, and Doctorates. You can do the math and get the percentage of those people from the Zambian population. Please add those in the diaspora too. Keep in mind that the majority of the elocatorate have a very basic or no formal education at all but they have voter’s cards just like the educated ones.

  39. Tragedy has fallen on cadres who were ferried from the Copperbelt.The bus they were in was involved in an accident and some passengers died.Why did they have to travel to Lusaka.Just like the UPND and parties ,the PF will have to campaign on the Copperbelt.Just stay in your respective town.You lose your life just because you attended a party rally.What a terrible loss.

  41. HH has a 10 point Plan. What vision or Plan does Lungu have? Will choosing Inonge Wina as a Running Mate strategic and will she add value to Lungu? Does Inonge Wina have strong support in Western Province? Inonge Wina is loyal but not charismatic and so of what use is she to Lungu?

  44. MANOMAMBULWA,

    UPND are the ones fooling themselves. Early in the morning on Saturday, I witnessed thousands of people walking to Heroes Stadium voluntarily from as far as Kalingalinga and Mutendere. If people came from outside Lusaka, should that surprise you? My foot! This was expected because this was a national inaugural rally to flag of the PF campaign! Even the UPND rally at Freedom Park was supposed to have the same national character, but it fell far short in size compared to the PF rally even though the UPND bused in supporters from all parts of the Copperbelt and beyond. By the way, can you tell us who HH’s running mate is?

Kwena Ba UPND muli mucibe.Why sayig that Bembas are dribbled?Do u think bembas believe in tribalism like UPND party?Ifwe fwe ba bemba nowonder we can’t vote for UPND bcoz u believe too much in tribalism.HH couldn’t even pronounce maize in Bemba.The man can’t learn.So if UPND is cheating itself that UPND will win because bembas won’t support PF then u’re cheating yoselves.Teti tovote tribal party who wants to use GMB and Mulenga Sata.Twalicenjela saana.U’ll never see votes in Northern,luapula muchinga n cb bcoz we know that HH loves tribalism n hates bembas

    • Thank you Moscow. Walanda bwino sana. These people don’t listen and they never learn. Anything Lungu does they observe using tribal rose coloured glasses. Not everything is about tribe. That same tribal card they are using is what will bring them down for the 5th time. Yes, we will vote on tribal lines again on the copperbelt because southern province has the same voting pattern. In eastern province, we are going for one umozdi kumawa, wako ni wako. No violence but nga mwatukonka, kumiponona.
      Mpaka litente. Umuntu ni Lungu. Nga tauli Lungu ninshi tapali efyo uli.

  46. Yes some people came from outside Lusaka but the majority of the people came from within Lusaka. Do your arithmetic. How many buses would have been required to bring in people from outside Lusaka for 100,000 people assuming only 20,000 people came from within Lusaka? You are the same people who said the stadium would never be filled. I can only imagine your celebrations had the stadium not been filled.

    • Ba Senior, we were there. Most of these people came walking out of the compounds. Some were on public transport and when there was a traffic jam at some point, they jumped off the public transport and started walking. There were a few that were ferried because they belong to particular wards and those wards organised their own transport. But honestly just as you have said, how many vehicles could have ferried 100 thsnd plus cadres? The writing is on the wall. Ichintu chintu umwene. Umuntu ni Lungu chapwa.

  48. I think 11 August will end in tears for those projecting a misguided model of popularity. The opposition has used violence and arrogance to project that they have gained popularity. What is miscalculated is that in Northern Province rural, PF is very popular. UPND has covered some insufficient ground in Kasama Central, but even their choice of MP shows that they will lose lamentably. Northern Province could go 35,000 votes for HH and 400,000 for Edgar Lungu. All I can say is that watch Eastern and Western Provinces closely. If Edgar Lungu scores 70+% in Eastern Province, you might as well stop counting ballots. Copperbelt will not vote HH, he will improve their, perhaps 90,000 to 450,000 and perhaps no MP (maybe Kafulafuta, Masaiti or Mpongwe).

  50. Jumping around and dancing without a clear plan for mother Zambia is trying to dance away from important issues. Seriously, what is Edgar Lungu’s plan for Zambia? Why is it costing us Zambians 2 million dollars per kilometer of borrowed money to build our roads, while in South Africa its 400,000 dollars. Why is my future, and my children’s future being subjected to this extra cost, hence extra debt? These are the issues we should be debating.

  55. PF leadership spent more than US $2.3 million dollars taxpayers money to ferry people around the country in more than 1000 hired buses for the Saturday Heroes Stadium event where they were expected to launch their manifesto. Bills seen by the Zambian Watchdog indicate that close to US$ 500,000 was spent on paying musicians alone while delegates were also being paid some allowances for attending, and that is minus hotel bookings.PF is a party of deluded corrupt politicians it is now time flush out these idi-ots.

    2. HH hasn’t yet denounced his membership as a free mason, that satanic movement. Why? Baba, you are still a member and us Zambians know it. We shall not make such a mistake of putting you in state house.
