Kabushi PF Parliamentary Candidate Bowman Lusambo has been summoned by the Ndola District Elections Conflict Management Committee after the UPND complained over what it says are provocative campaign messages.

The UPND in the District has written to the Ndola District Elections Conflict Management Committee complaining over Mr Lusambo’s campaigns messages targeted at its leader Hakainde Hichilema.
The party says Mr Lusambo is behind the three mock coffins that were draped in UPND chitenges that have been going round the district.

The party also claims that Mr Lusambo has been distributing posters with the words R.I.P HH which it says is provocative.

And Ndola District Elections Conflict Management Committee Chairman Roy Kuseka has confirmed that Mr Lusambo has been summoned to appear before the Committee at 14:30 Hours today.

Mr Kuseka said the Committee wants to establish some facts behind the reports regarding the nature of campaigns that Mr Lusambo and his team are engaging in.

According to the Electoral Process Act No. 35 2016, one of the mandates of the Electoral Commission of Zambia is to manage electoral conflicts and resolve disputes.

These committees are composed of a Chairperson appointed by the Commission; a Vice Chairperson; One representative from each registered political party; representatives of civil society organizations and representatives of such Government ministries and institutions as determined by the Commission, such as the Zambia Police, Anti-Corruption Commission and the Drug Enforcement Commission; and the secretariat.

The National and District Conflict Management Committees have powers to mediate electoral conflicts, advise the conflicting party in an election conflict, report the matter to the police for further action where a crime is committed during elections and recommend the revocation of accreditation of any monitor or observer to the Commission.

The Committee does not however have judicial powers or powers to disqualify the candidature of any person participating in the elections.

Meanwhile UPND Cadres also displayed a mock coffin of PF President Edgar Lungu at a rally address by UPND President Hakainde Hichilema.

    • I am asking my self why no one has taken the PF misleader Vodiga Rungu over the abuse of government resources when a Zambia Air Force helicopter flew provocatively over the UPND Chawama rally last weekend.

      For as long as leadership of the Electoral Commission and other important government institutions are appointed by the office of the president, Zambia will continue to be a defacto one party state pretending to be a democracy.
      The playing field is clearly not level and advantages the ruling party while severely marginalising the opposition.
      Conclusion: The 2016 campaign is not free and fair and will result negative appraisal of the fairness of the election if the PF wins.
      Watch this space.

    • MMD die-hard Lusambo should be carrying Mutati coffins.
      I don’t like the PF methods of coffins and dressing dogs.
      I remember when Kabimba was running PF, and Lusaka thugs went in streets with coffins. .. And where was Lusambo…

    • SUCH BEHAVIOR FROM PF AS EVIDENCED BY PEOPLE LIKE LUSAMBO SHOWS YOU HOW MEDIOCRE AND LOW QUALITY THE PF LEADERSHIP IS. THE UNEQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH IS THE MOST UGLY DEMON WE HAVE IN ZAMBIA, AND CRIMINAL EDGAR LUNGU AND HIS PF MINIONS HAVE PERPETRATED THIS UNFAIR AND INHUMANE ACT ON MILLIONS OF THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. THIS IS A DEFINING MOMENT FOR ZAMBIA. LET US DO OURSELVES A BIG FAVOR. LET US VOTE FOR A TEAM THAT HAS THE ENTHUSIASM TO JERK OUR ECONOMY AND OUR STANDARDS OF LIVING UP. LET US VOTE FOR HH AND THE UPND TEAM BECAUSE THEY MEAN WELL FOR ZAMBIA. PF MINIONS ARE BUSY SPREADING PROPAGANDA, TRYING TO SCARE THE ZAMBIANS BY SAYING THEY WILL BE SEGREGATED AGAINST IF HH BY THE TONGAS IF HH WINS. THAT IS A VERY SERIOUS LIE, AND KAMBWILI WILL HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR SPREADING MALICIOUS…

  6. In the Bible, the number 6 symbolizes man and human weakness, the evils of Satan and the manifestation of sin. Man was created on the sixth day. Men are appointed 6 days to labor.

    A Hebrew slave was to serve six years and be released in the 7th year. Six years were appointed for the land to be sown and harvested. The number 6 is also associated with Satan in his temptation of Jesus.
    LET US QUICKLY USHER IN THE 7TH PRESIDENT IN ZAMBIA.GOD OUT OF HIS MERCY MADE OUR SIXTH PRESIDENT TO SERVE A SHORT TERM SO THAT OUR SUFFERING IS NOT PROLONGED.

    • Quoting the bible out of contest is hypocrisy! How about declaring black Friday and refusing to join the nation in worship? Is that also part of God’s plan? Leave Jehovah our God out of this man created madness. He will in his own wisdom appoint a ruler and he can never be wrong, neither can he be mocked!

  11. @Vilifier,@Observer,Your observations are right.At times these World bank/IMF will want to know whether you know what you need the money for.At times we get loans as individuals from the bank & go to “drink it”!

  12. It has taken PF too short a time to reap what they have sown. It was only last week that they planted a coffin of HH and they are reaping already in Western Province. Lets us see what Edgar and his Police and his ECZ will do now. Lol

  15. I hope our intelligent friends are following what is happening be H. Clinton, Obama and Trump and try to compare it with Zambian situation. If Trump was Zambian, he would by now taken over 20 cases to the constitutional court. Just like the guys from the under five clinic.

    • I think Trump is more aligned to Edgar than HH when have you ever heard ECL really articulate issues without reference to a paper or simply saying I have no vision of my own ??? Similarly trump just says will make America great again …..sontapo sontapo such senseless slogans

  16. The problem with UPND followers, mostly Tongas anyway, take HH as a small god and that he is the most intelligent. The truth is, HH is just a simple zambian and not by any account the most intelligent, there are better and highly more qualified economists working in government than HH. Government is a system not an individual. Like Obama said last night, what we need is a leader not a ruler. HH has poor leadership qualities, therefore, more of a ruler type than a leader, just like Donald Trump in the USA.

  19. I see a great and vibrant future for all Zambians, young, old, men and women premised on leadership of humility, hard work, dedication and passion to develop our great country. Zambia, like any other nation on planet earth, has witnessed the effects and challenges of global economic meltdown and turmoil but in the midst of it all, Zambia has come out stronger, resilient and determined to transform its potential to reality.
    The developmental achievements across the breadth and length of our nation witnessed in the last five years, driven by belief and faith is a clear demonstration that another FIVE SOLID YEARS under President Lungu leadership, Zambia is poised to be a beacon and hub of economic prosperity. President Lungu is embracing, tolerant, predictable and humble but firm and fair…

    • And with all your lopsided …Lungu minion…. analysis you have forgotten that you finished the money and borrowed on top of it…and now have asked the IMF to come and manage your budget and expenditure…ichikulya chitwa. …essentially what you don’t see will kill u….. Kaunda did it and PF have done it again…you won’t have much in the next five years my brother I pity you seriously …even in the Bible there is a parable of Talents …PF are the servant that spent everything without growing what was left

    President Lungu is embracing, tolerant, predictable and humble but firm and fair and his heart is Zambia no wonder our PF founding father Mr. Michael Chilufya Sata identified him as such and left him with the mantle to carry on the with the vision and future we all desire amongst millions of us, yes Sata saw it in Edgar Lungu!
    I therefore urge all Zambians, young old, men and women to turn out in their large numbers and multitudes to reaffirm and give President Lungu a resounding YES Victory on 11 August 2016 and let those driven by envy, hate and anger continue in their limited thinking. Vote Edgar Chagwa Lungu and PF for a transformed Zambia with equal opportunities and endless imagination….

  21. One other thing I like about PF is their creativity. We saw how everyone danced to Donchi Kubeba in one election while others followed copying and then dununa others want to copy. Can the under five Tonga tribal political party be original for once and come up with something their own. Even dressing is that of Malema in South africa, The symbol is that of Hitler. Bowman’s coffin is more creative. Next PF will dress a cow in PF Chitenge and say “they have defected” then the someone will go crying.

  22. HH and GBM call themselves businessmen but we all know of true and successfully men and women in this country with clear and traceable record, these two dont have either. One of them privatised our mines (former ZCCM) and our industries on Copperbelt for a penny to the Zambian Treasury and millions of dollars to his bank account and another is known for deceit, violence, bragging, hate and vulgar language with no respect for our women and mothers. Both, their workers get meager wages and in most cases go without pay altogether. They have left many feel cheated, the recent example being the case of Canicious Banda, left homeless and snabbed at the last hour of being the reasonable and faithful running mate simply because both HH and GBM believe in nothing for the ordinary Zambian but…

    They have left many feel cheated, the recent example being the case of Canicious Banda, left homeless and snabbed at the last hour of being the reasonable and faithful running mate simply because both HH and GBM believe in nothing for the ordinary Zambian but themselves, records are their to verify these facts, so can you entrust your future in such characters? The choice is simple, President lungu has proved and demonstrated that Zambia is about the people and live by your word. Vote massively for President Lungu and the PF, the future is indeed brighter and greater things are about to happen under ECL’s five year leadership

  29. UPND yalisashila! The hate speech that HH spews against Lungu is worse than this. I am surprised that UPND cadres have the audacity to comment against Bowman when Lusaka Times has a picture of UPND doing the same thing. UPND cadres seem to be thinkers.
