    • The truth is coming out, people who filled the stadium came from all 10 provinces and not just from Lusaka. 30 buses came from Copperbelt and about 20 from Western and central provinces.

      HH managed to fill Freedom Park with only Copperbelt residents, PF will get a shock of their lives on 11/08/16.

    • It would take 10,000 marcopolo busses to fill that stadium. Continue comforting yourself with that illusion of people coming from outside Lusaka

    • HH also admitted the Kite rally had people from other provinces. The two rallies were important occasions that required all party organs to be present.

    • Something thinking. Those people who filled the heroes are Edgar’s supporters regardless of where they came. Besides HH had people from copper belt which is not one town. But all are his supporters and no big deal.

  6. What difference does 5,000 cadres ferried from other parts of the country make out of a crowd of 120, 000 attendees? A bus can carry maximum 80 passengers meaning that 5,000 would need 62 buses. Unfortunately there were less than 30 big buses at the stadium meaning the majority of people were from within Lusaka.

    Love him or hate him, Lungu pulled the largest crowd ever in history of Zambian campaigns. The stadium was full in the stands, some people were seating 3 on a seat of 2 people, the stairs were full, the pitch grounds were full, and out side thousands were just loitering around unable to go in.

    • Sontapo, that is not true. we saw the buses enroute to lusaka with the PF chitenges so do not say those were lusaka residents only.

  7. Condolences; we may have different political view points but we are still one Zambia one nation. Let’s work together to stop the carnage on our roads; one life lost is one too many; especially one so young.

  8. 120,000 people in a stadium taking less than 60,000? Was there someone counting the people? Anyway 11 august is coming. Was it not because of free T shirts and wrappers? Just wondering

    • I was wondering how the number 120,000 was arrived at. Were there some kind of tickets sold or this is the number of legitimate PF names on the register? Otherwise that is arbitrary which is misleading and self comforting.

  9. My understanding is that this was a national event requiring the presence of all party organs? So why fret about where the attendees came from?

  10. You can f00l some people sometimes but you cannot f00l al the people all the time. It is sad that EL and his PF have continued to risk lives of our people in such a manner. This is what we have always been saying that they are ferrying people from towns and they have continuously denied it. I wonder what Kambwal and that Frank Bwalya will say about this issue. MHSRIP

  11. Typical pf abuse of everything, is that heroes stadium not supposed to hold 30,000 to 40,000, even engineers would tell you, liers 120,000 who did the counting? If it was 120,000 people in that pitch wouldn’t be running up and down chasing that motorcade, who is pf to defy all odds of physics.

    • It is global. A 40,000 capacity stadium can accommodate 120,000 people. Kikikikiki

  12. Most of the attendees were bored citizens who went for the entertainment, on voting week the employment and hunger status will dictate on who gets their vote.

    If they are hungry, they will vote HH. If they are not hungry ECL
    if they are unemployed, they will vote HH, if they are in employment it’s ECL.

  13. The PF had one bus of seniour party officials from Central, Eastern, Luapula, Lusaka, Muchinga, Northern, North Western, Southern and Western for the Campaign launch. The number of them was less than 1000. The rest of the people came on their own because of the love that they have for the party
    Why are some people offended at the fact that the Heroes Stadium was full?
    Why are some people bitter with the success of that program?
    Why. …………….?

  15. These rallies will not translate into votes so PF to win will havw to rig the elections at all levels from ballot printing to vote counting and tallying.

  16. Even the PF vuvuzela TV said people from the TEN PROVINCES of Zambia filled the stadium. What is there to argue?

  17. Of course they will fill the stadium with bribery. Throw some beer, Chibuku and Kachasushi and BINGO! To those considered as the elite throw in some Jameson. Promise a free concert by musicians and entice people with incentives and voila! This is not the way people and you are all being bribed. Here a person lost their life because of PF. Probably this is due to drinking and driving and this falls on the so called lawyer fake president who should have seen this coming when you mix alcohol and driving. No Vision! No Leadership! If he truly had a vision he could have seen this happening. If he was a true leader he would implemented road blocks for police to monitor and stop drivers under the influence. What a president indeed! How many more to die due to carelessness?
