    • Absolutely electric for a Lungu landslide victory. Its deep calling unto deep. Here a common man is emphantic on rallying around his very own leader from the commoners’ community. See them in unwavering spirit for real power people power and own destiny. They are electrifying the tempo to challenge schemes and lies of plutocratic crooks known for being loaded with insults and incorrigible hatred. When Zambians decides, they win big. Watch this space for a people’s victory match. Giving a full ruling mandate to one ECL. Salutation!

    • Its hard to take what this guy says seriously-because what he says is totally different from he puts in practical. When he says he will allow HH to campaign, he is actually telling his thugs to remove all HH campaign materials, stop the main opposition from doing door to door campaigns among other vices. He is double tongued, slippery and untrustworthy individual and that is why he keeps flip flopping in almost everything!! The reason for this is because in the begging, his ascendance to power was built on thuggery and crookedness!!

REMEMBER HE HAD TOLD MINERS THAT NO ONE WOULD LOOSE THEIR JOBS. ALAS WHAT FOLLOWED SOON AFTER IS NOW HISTORY. PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA REMEMBER THIS: ONCE BEATEN, TWICE SHY. IF YOU VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED TO ENDURE THE FRUITS OF HIS INCOMPETENCE AND CORRUPTION FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

    • It’s a shame because it’s not really upto him to allow or not to allow HH to campaign he is supposed to have no say in this….systems and institutions should be solid enough to ensure candidates campaign freely …..we are stuck with colonial and post colonial tendencies that are so neolithic in nature….it’s a shame that a lawyer such as Edgar should be issuing such statement

    • Where are the real journalist in Zambia nkashi? Why doesn’t anyone ask this Jameson Whisky champion about the following issues he has sat on for so long;
      1. Why does he not allow ZNBC cover the opposition as much as they cover him?
      2. Why is he not condemning violence coming from his Kaponya followers-we have seen a number of pictures of badly beaten UPND followers, who later we are told have died in hospitals. As head of state he is supposed to condemn this brutality because he is a president for all, be it UPND or PF
      3. Why has he sat on this Concourt so as they do not make a decision on illegal/legal ministers, we are tired of seeing crooked ugly faces in the likes of Musenge, Kabwili, Scarface kabulu and annoying dwarfs like Kampyongo (lolest, kikikiki!)
      4. What is his agenda on…

    • the economy, apart from talking about HH and GBM during his rallies, he rarely says anything meaningful on how he is going to revive the ailing economy. OOh please, PF cadres, please save me the trash of me having to go searching for your manifesto…ECL is the PF supremo, he is supposed to explain to me and my grandmama in the village what he has got instore for us voters because we are his employers-you do not tell the prospective employer’s interviewing panel to go and dig deeper into your CV during the interview unless of course you do not want the job which is at stake.
      5. There is too much corruption especially among his ministers-why is he terrified craking the whip? Is he not incharge?
      Who ever calls himself a real journalist pa Zed should ask this Chagwa man these questions…

    • What amount of hardship and painful circumsdtances would make people wake-up and say ENOUGH -IS- ENOUGH??? Will the majority of the electorate ever reach such a point? Do the majority want more than they have right now? When will people stop putting faith in a bunch of un-educated economic managers who are responsible for the current economic crisis that Zambia is going through??

The so called journalists even at press conferences are only good at shopped questions lacking any depth! And Zezemba you have made my day that one doesn’t tell the employer to go search deeper for ones CV any serious employer would show such the exit door!

    • THIS THIEF IS NOW COMING OUT IN THE OPEN AFTER HIDING FOR A WHILE IN STATE HOUSE. HE WAS IN STATE HOUSE WORKING ON MORE RIGGING MECHANISMS AFTER SEVERAL OF THE PREVIOUS SCHEMES WERE EXPOSED. LUNGU IS A VERY DIRTY CRIMINAL. I WONDER WHY SOME ZAMBIANS HAVE DECIDED TO SUPPORT THIS LOOTER WHO IS PULLING DOWN OUR COUNTRY EVERYDAY, turning millions of Zambians into beggars. LUNGU MUST FALL! CHAKOLWA MUST FALL!

    • HH is now complaining about the increase in maize price.
      He blames Lungu claiming he is inconsistent.
      But wait a minute, I hope HH will not be rigid leader. As a leader flexibility is important – you have to have a listening heart, and understand and manage dynamics. You can’t be so rigid even in the changing dynamics.
      HH did not have anything to say.
      Lungu Scored by raising the maize price.
      HH’s 10 point plan received punches by this increase in maize price.
      What HH was trying to do here was to try and mend his 10 point plan, but I did not see his effort do much here.
      Edgar Lungu has scored

For your information most of these people are those who never attended the Rally at the stadium. I attended the rally at the stadium but never went to this Rally. So this is another full stadium for you. You should be counting – two stadium filled so far, ie lsk only. next will be in chawama. you expect another full stadium there as well. We want to make sure you don’t come up with excuses when we hammer you on August 11. We want to make sure that GBM looses weight after August 11 and your HH will sale that Mortuary he has belt in Kasama. Guy Scot will go back to the farm and concentrate on feeding his swines. Mulenga Sata will continue with dog breeding career while…

    • “If I lose I will not accept the results, if I win I will accept the results of this same election, held under the same environment”, Please, Please, Please!!!
      I think that for me I see dishonesty, selfishness, greedy and not allowance for democracy in HH’s conduct.
      “If I pass No.1, then our teacher is good and knows how to teach; if someone else passes No.1, then our teacher is bad and does not know how to teach”, says a pupil. Do you believe this pupil?
      “If I win, the process is good elections are free and fair, if I lose, the same exact process is bad and the elections are free and fair”, SURE!!!!
      And you still manage to get people to trust you???

    • HH is VERY VERY VERY DISHONESTY.
      You cannot say that if I lose I will not accept the results.
      But you say that if you win you will accept the results – in the same environment, same elections, same rules, same atmosphere.
      Who then can trust you HH? Under normal circumstances a person will not trust a person who says if this same thing is given to me then it is a good thing, but if the same thing is given to someone else it is poisonous – same thing??? Is that not an act of selfishness??
      I had little respect for HH but his conduct is becoming a big trial for my trust in him.
      Doesn’t HH have advisors? If he does, is that what HH’s advisors advise him?

  1. President Lungu is a good leader. He is a breath of fresh air. His ministers though leave way too much to be desired. Starting with the minister of home affairs, the one that said prisoners can vote. Then their is Kambwili, that shall probably say something crazy right after the president ha denounced violence. Thank you first lady for your words. Kavindele and Captain Chewe, thank you for being there and not saying anything. HH, and my president Edith Nawakwi should be allowed to campaign as freely as they want. That is Zambian democracy.

  5. President Lungu said HH will be allowed to campaign,so in the past months and weeks Lungu thru his agents did not allow hh to campaign.this is a clear admission of his involvement in police force.deceiption is transporting cadres from all lsk townships just for comforting yourself.mmd did the same in 2011,remember when voting if you ar happy with the economic outlook or you are worse now than u were 5 yrs ago.the future of your destiny depends on your wise vote.Dr pule,God does not choose political leaders,as a pastor you kno that bt bcz of tuma envelopes u are misleading the masses.

  10. Well done President Edgar Lungu. You are winning this election because you are chosen by God.

    • True @Eddie, that Rainbow on 18 October, 2015 was confirmation of God’s favour on us as Zambians. The calling for national prayers by the President was no mere act, but God was fully behind it. The critics of that event are now ‘mauless’ and I hear they have also started ‘believing’ God (I hope it’s not just to appear good before us). I also hear that they have started embracing the ‘One Zambia One Nation’ slogan rekindled by ECL. Clearly, there is no originality in opposition if they can be copying everything from smart ECL and PF. I do not want to commit suicide by voting out a God-favoured ECL. Can’t never!!!

    • Very correct, we already decided. Right now, we just enjoy watching the hallucination drama in the opposition, how I love to see the panicking, the confusion, the disunity, the ‘mwembeshing’ (or carbon-copying) of PF policies!! The moment you start seeing such in the enemy camp, just know that they are gone. One may wonder why – well, its God’s doing. I mentioned last time that the opposition should enjoy their freedom to campaign before the most loved PF comes on the scene. The little gains they have scored will be wiped out in one or two strolls. It’s indeed kolopa pa 11 August 2016. Viva ECL, Viva PF.

  18. Its a very big crowd, pretty much like a mega rally that was organized by one Joyce Banda on Zambia’s eastern frontier before the big bang. In a mathematical equation, the body language speaks a minus. Such voters tend to sit on the fence and can be swayed either way.This same body language is similar to what the UPND in Chipata experienced. The foot prints in the North and CB are more clearer. It is just my personal objective analysis as a student of politics.

Some ascend from a nobody to the richest in the country beating the likes of Tom Mtine and Enock Kavindele. This HH guy is a real swindler. It is just that he stole during the period when most Zambian including the educated ones were still sleeping. Luanshya Mine valued at $12m when at the same time New Castle United were buying Allan Shearer at 50 million British Pounds. What a joke of a Valuation Consultant. The fact is this HH crook was at the centre of the failed privatization programme.

The violence certainly worked very negatively to parties perpetuating it. If the playing field is leveled, then let us have fun and may the best man win. Go for it HH and UPND, it is time to go into over-drive now:)

  28. Why are you Zambians always gullible,you mean to tell me that you cant differentiate between a real crowd and a well paid,bused crowd.Look at these photos closely and tell me if you see any reality in them.Besides,even if you were bring out the entire Zingalume compound together,it wouldnt number to such a crowd.The crowd is fake,all pictures were taken in 1 angle accept for 2 pics.And then Lungu is not talking he is just standing there and staring at crowd,then the other pic he is only displaying the PF symbol with no Microphone in his hand again.Its like someone passing by to say hi on an ongoing event.The first 6 also rolls are definitely PF but the rest of the crowd were definitely there for other reasons.I can conclude that this for sure wasnt a PF event,PF just hijacked,this is like…

    • Redbull,

      Believe whatever you and theorize as much as you can about photographic angles, the pictures are a true and accurate reflection of the rally. I was there, voluntarily and not bused in from the outside as you insinuate. There were so many people and cars just finding a place to park was a challenge.

  29. If the truth be told Lungu is a hypocrite, a thug and a crook. When he say elections will be free and fair the opposite is true. Lungu cannot win these elections freely and fairly. He will rig these elections at all costs but the rigging will fail to give him victory. Time will tell.

  30. These photos are part of the rigging plan,either they bused people from around Lusaka to there,or their I.T department merged crowds of people using a computer program.There is absolutely no way that you can ve such a crowd in a Lusaka compound.Especially that Lungu lives in Lusaka also where people are more used to seeing him around than any other provincial compounds.He failed to pull crowds in the Copperbelts where people dont see him everyday,why wud people that see him everyday crowd like this for him in one day?No ways.And given today was a sunday people are preparing for work and school tomorrow,unless all these people here were street kids from all lusaka compounds.

    • @ Redbull, you are leaving in a dream world young man. Why are you busy blabbing and blabbing on campaign photos. Why can’t you debate objectively on better issues than waste space on this platform. My dear, campaigns are about numbers, whether supporters have been ferried from far and wide it shouldn’t be a problem. When our national team is playing at levy Mwanawasa, fans from different places come to watch the match and similarly this also happens in politics. You need to have supporters to talk to and then you will have the energy and confidence as a player. Kanshi Muf waya abanenu without the crowd. HH and UPND does the same, ferrying their supporters from all walks of life, it is a game my dear

Why wud people squash like this to just see a kaLungu?just to see him and not to hear what he will say because he has nothing sensible to say other than building roads and bridges.It is a fake crowd.It is too tight to be real especially that this was an unplanned meeting,just from blue you ve a big crowd-without any public announcement.If its a real crowd where are the other officials that attended this meeting?-show us LT.HH’s crowds are prepared for,announced weeks before he goes there.Now this guy Lungu has people falling from heaven on un announced meetings.Just like he has 23m in 1 year.Miracles-abracadabra………….hhhe….bruuuuuuuu!

    Look at the last photo. Guy in the white shirt -center of photo, with arms raised looks larger than the rest of the crowd.
    If you are this gulliable, no wonder you vote for, & put drunkards /embezzlers in positions of trust, power, then wonder why the nation is seriously stagnating, whilst the drunken corrupt embezzlers get rich at the expense of our poor suffering masses.

  33. Firstly, can’t Lungu address a rented crowd without mentioning HH? What is he going to do and how? Secondly, what’s all this nonsense about Lungu “being chosen by God”? Leaders are chosen by the people or impose themselves on the people. So God chooses good for nothing evil dictators? Like Amin, Hitler? And if they start off ‘alright’ but become butchers of their own people, why doesn’t God remove them? This irrational justification of perpetuating the rule of those incapable of leading, must cease.

  34. I fail to understand why we spend time debating tje obvious. Look here guys Edgar is popular among citizens and that is naturally. When Edga campaigns he dors nit exert any effort at all. Contrast this with HH and his team. When .HH campaigns you can see that he puts in 20 times more effort to achieve just a fraction what Edgar puts in
    Look at the contorted face of HH when he campaigning? it looks so painful and yet for Edgar it’s like taking a shower. The difference is that Edgar is naturally likeable and telates to people but not HH.

    • It is like that because lungu is favoured by a secrete code that only people from north western Rhodesia will continue to rule zambia.HH is seen as a black sheep from North western Rhodesia who should never rule.This is a myth which God will un do in zambia to show all zambians that he is God of the oppressed and down trodden people.Just like he did with Obama is USA God Jehova has raised HH’s hands very high for Lungu to tourch.I say in white and black Lungu is the easiest Presidential Candidate to beat.HH will be Victorious in a dramatic way that most Zambians will be [email protected] June,2016 is the day of my prophecy,watch for this day.

  38. If these pictures are genuine why is Lungu busy trying to rig these elections? Lungu and PF know they have lost support in their former strongholds and there is no way Lungu can win without rigging and violence. The persecution of GBM thru character assassination, court harassment and blackout of UPND and leaders on National Radio and TV and state owned press is popularising Team HH. High cost of living, misgovernance, mismanagement of the economy ,violence, thuggery etc are all campaigning for Team HH and UPND. There is nothing Lungu can do turn around his election fortunes in less than 2 months. Lungu is lonely in PF and all the big guns have deserted him for valid reasons. Nobody sane trusts Lungu and without Trust and confidence in Lungu it is a done deal. Not even rigging will save…

    • Musonda,
      The final register of voters is 6,710,455 as at 5 May 2016. In the UPND strong holds, the picture is as follows: Southern Province (812,590); Western (499,873); North Western (556,855). The total number of registered voters is therefore 1,869,318, representing 27.9 percent of all registered voters. In the PF strongholds, the picture is as follows: Copperbelt (1,038,434); Eastern Province ( 777,379); Luapula (511,057); Lusaka (1,121,846); Muchinga (349,411); Northern (399,784). The total number of registered voters in these PF strongholds is 4,197,911, representing 62.6 percent of all registered voters. Central province which might provide the swing votes has 643,226 voters or 9.6 percent of all registered voters. Given these facts, is there really any need for the PF government…

  41. Bakalamba HH can’t win this year ba UPND.The problem of UPND cadres is that they are so blind that since 2001 they have been declaring UPND as a winner despite knowing that UPND support is based on bantu botatwe.No one can be cheated that bemba speaking pipo gonna vote for HH despite appointing GBM.UPND always loses bcoz it practices tribal politics.For HH to choose GBM he thought bembas would feel sidelined in PF but that was a crazy mistake.Leaders should be principled.We are geared to teach HH a lesson that tribal politics don’t pay.It’s the same bembas he thinks are sidelined who fought for Edger Lungu.unlike UPND when Mazoka died Tongas wanted Mazoka to be replaced by a Tonga.What a party!Infact this year we are voting like pipo in southern province.We hope that will be the end…

Pipo, HH is so selfish and in his companies the only CV u need is to belong to bantu botatwe.These pipo should change their mindset.We need unity and not a party full of pipo who are tribalists like HH and GBM who think some in tribe lines.For pipo in UPND Quota…

See the poster at UTH, along church road was burnt, at munali roundabout etc. It should be acknowledged that both UPND and PF are coming electoral crimes. But for you as a blind you only see HH. Is it because of tribe?

  50. People love Edgar Lungu.
    HH needs to understand this.
    Lungu dos not need to pour too much sweat like other candidates.
    He has exhibited the character Zambians are looking for.
    He does not pretend – he is himself.
    and it is the honesty character that Zambians are looking for.
    He identifies with people and belittles no one.
    He calls no one – dull, he respects everyone.
    He also has a natural fear for God – not being seen to use God for marketing purposes like others may be trying to do.

  54. The President also told UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema that the elections will be free and fair and that the UPND leader will be allowed to campaign. Is it Lungu who should allow HH to Campaign? That shoes an inept leader misleading and mismanaging the Nation and the economy. Zambians are now wiser and can see through Lungu’s hypocrisy.

    • UPND blogger cadres are extremely resilient as always. I know that after 11 August 2016, most of them will defend themselves with after all I feed myself and you are the one who will be suffering while their mothers in rural Zambia are starving.
      Let me tell you, from a registered voter since 1991 when I was at UNZA and we voted out UNIP that HH will lose these elections emphatically.
      The Zambians have not trusted HH enough since 2008. Now he is yoked with another misfit GBM, it is even more difficult to warm to UPND. Maybe if he had choosen Canisius Banda, HH would have a higher probability of winning, but still it would be hard.

  55. What UPND has done well is propaganda. HH tried this year but he is losing, ECL is a likeable guy.

    UPND propaganda via Watchdog and The Post is talking about rigging as a fallback plan when they lose. I find it amazing that people believe stories in ZWD and Post.

    Why complain about ZNBC when UPND events are live on Muvi TV and HH is on all radio stations?

    Has HH ever condemned Larry L Mweetwa or Zambian Watchdog?

  56. Last week I meet some old man at a car wash and I told him I will vote for ECL because I identify with him as an ordinary human and very humble. He engaged me and stated that it is better to vote for HH and GBM because they are business people. I told him that is very scary as the 2 of them will simply enrich themselves further and that GBM is very crude and I cannot visualise him as VEEP. At this point he lost his temper and told me off that who are you to criticise GBM who is employer, I answered a simple voter with children.

There is no room for subsidies in Capitalist economy. GREED, CORRUPTION AND UNEMPLOYMENT are the three major disadvantages of Capitalism.
    Currently more than 70% of National Budget goes to Civil Servants salaries now add the cost free education , Fertilizer and so forth.

Another observation:In all the pictures the cameraman taking these photos seems to have been in a chopper but many small things dont add up.1.There is a small group of people just after the stage that are in a small shed,where is this shed coming from.These people seem to be seated when they are infact standing.There is a guy in middle of crowd with his hands raised from a distance but,he is as visible as though he was close.The last 3pictures,was the cameraman standing on the podium or he was suspend in the air,cos images dont match with his position.Lastly,take a 5seconds glance at any of these photos and you shd start feeling dizzy.This dizzy effect is coming from mixed up pixel ratios using a computer program.This PF photo editor made alot of mistakes,I run a business where i shoot…

  62. weddings and etc.So am talking from experience-this is my field and career.another last thing,these pics look like a hollywood movie.The reason why people in movies are squashed is becos the cameraman arranged them before taking the photo.Here,this is a reality event,in reality,you need little space between each other,for people to walk and mingle around.These people look like they were just planted there,for more than a week,waiting to be harvested.If really this crowd was real,then we shd ve had atleast 10 more deaths resulting from people stepping on top of one another.But if there was no single accident or death,then that tells it all.
