UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema

United Party of National Development (UPND) leader, Hakainde Hichilema has accused the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) of colluding with the PF to alter the 2016 general election results.

Speaking after a meeting of Political Party leaders with ECZ, the UPND leader said that it was unfortunate that the ECZ had failed to deliver the Form G-12 to various polling stations, for compilation of the election results.

“The ECZ (Electoral Commission of Zambia) is somehow conniving with people in the political arena to delay the release of results so that PF thugs armed with guns take over the polling stations at night and write fake results,” United Party for National Development (UPND) candidate Hakainde Hichilema told journalists.

“They are trying to generate the results.”

However, the UPND leader urged his supporters to stay peaceful.

“What is going on is collusion between the PF, Police and the ECZ to steal this result especially presidential results,” he said.

“Don’t fall into their trap to be driven into violence”

This afternoon, the Electoral Commission of Zambia held a closed door meeting with leaders of political parties at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre, the National Results totaling centre, who contested yesterday’s general election. The meeting, which started at about 16.30 hours, ended around 18:20 hours.

The other opposition leader that attended the meeting was FDD’s Edith Nawakwi while President Edgar Lungu was being represented by PF Secretary General, Davies Chama and National Chairman, Ngosa Simbyakula.

Other parties, which have also sent representatives, are Rainbow, UNIP, DA, UPP, Green Party, and PAC.

Meanwhile, FDD leader, Edith Nawakwi disclosed that the meeting agreed that the police should go round some polling stations, where anxiety has heightened.

Ms Nawakwi also said that the discussion was also centred on the release of the election results and the circulation of the G-12 Form to pollings stations.

Earlier, the ECZ had rescheduled the commencement of the announcing of election results to 18 hours.

ECZ Public Relations Manager, Cris Akufuna explained that the decision to reschedule was arrived at consultatively, between the political party agents and commission Chairperson.

    • What is the purpose of the international observers please? Are they only in hotels or they are also spread around the polling stations to practically follow through the whole process from voting to counting to announcing the results in order to ensure that in the end they can say with certainty whether or not the elections were free and fair? Don’t the individual political parties participating in the elections send representatives to monitor the whole process as well?

    • Sad indeed. I`ve never seen a country whose people are so unconcerned about the there future and future of there children like Zambia. How do you explain this support for Lungu and PF. What is it based on? Because when you dig into all the economic and development statistics on Zambia, this country is headed into a dark hole. When you statistics like Zambia being ranked 3rd hungriest nation on earth, inflation at more than 20% economy growing at 3%, $7billion in debt, unemployment at 80%—-its so scary. But to people in Zambia—–no big deal! Yes, it might not be a big deal to you —–but how about your children? There is something very, very, serious about Zambia minds.

    • Such outrageous claims are reckless, childish and unpatriotic. Learn to lose with honor and move on. Zambians have decided and just learn to humble yourself. How were you expecting to beat a seating Government by flashing 10 bullet points scripted on a tissue paper claiming its your national development plan? As if not enough, of all people you select Chief GBV as running mate. Learn to respect the will of Zambians.

    • Bingo, I voted at a school in Chaisa. What I saw in that classroom was heartbreaking. I couldn’t believe Zambian children sit in that room to learn. Now as you are saying, the people who went there and voted for PF were saying we are very happy that our children, brothers and sisters sit in this kind of room to receive their education. I am told Zambian teachers are among the hughest paid in the sub region but what they are giving back to the children of Zambia is pathetic. The outside environment was an eyesore. In 1998 When Zambia was going thru its worst economic times, Kaunda won by an 80 % landslide victory because of using the same tactics of intimidation employed by PF. This election can never be declared free and fair.

    • HICHILEMA STORMS MULUNGUSHI RESULT CENTRE CLAIMING RESULTS ARE BEING CHANGED

      “He brought a man his team had caught who has turned out to be an innocent”.

      United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema accompanied by a horde of cadres this afternoon stormed Mulungushi International Conference Centre (ECZ Result Centre) and claimed that his team had apprehended a man “hacking into ECZ system”.

      Hichilema appear to have been sent into panic following early results that show that the Patriotic Front and it’s presidential candidate Edgar Lungu are leading in six provinces out of ten.

      His presence at Mulungushi has caused a delay in announcing of election results by 3hours.

      Hichilema demanded for a meeting with ECZ Commissioners and Priscilla Isaacs…

    • Separate from Zambia?? Read history sir. All tribes just came here including Barotse people. The best thing you can do is to ask which route your ancestors came from and follow it back. But even where they came from, chances are that no one will know you. So if you are Ngoni Mpezeni will give you the road map. But from the tone of your statement you are likely from the south. So just speak to one chief they will give you some direction. For your own information no one will follow you, you will go alone. Southerners are not fighting for separation even though most of them vote for UPND due to the leader coming from their which is the case with PF most easterners vote for them. So just go to the drawing board and strategies.

    • You absolutely right and I totally agree with you…..it will probably take next general elections for people to realise that they need to vote for the future not a president but sound governing principles and the less recycled politicians…….In SA ANC has shown decline in voting after 24 years in power people have got tired of liberation songs and speeches now its about securing the future for the kids by electing they that want to use men and women that want development rather than being partisan to old school of ‘kanabesa…sir…bwana’ for now its tricky for Zambia….in time it will happen

  9. And ECZ Chief Electoral Officer Priscilla Isaac has revealed that a man believed to be a PF member has been detained by police after he was found to have accessed the ECZ Data centre at the Results Centre at Mulungushi International Conference Centre.

    Ms. Isaac said she expressed concern over the security procedures at the data centre and called on ECZ officers to strengthen data security to protect the process.

We don’t want parties that have satanic symbols in Zambia but let the pf liberty symbol continue to rule. Peace belongs to God and we take it from Him. Those two dull boys hh and gbm can’t take my vote. They boast a lot. If they say they have too much money,what to they still need? To suck the little chilies left from what he stole? Noooooo

  17. PF caught in the act of rigging at Mulungushi Centre. How does this justify a comfortable win for PF. Shame on you. This is not being patriotic and totally un Zambian. This is unacceptable behaviour.we cant afford to be the nxt Zimbabwe and Uganda combined together. Shame on you PF.

  19. Real men tend to think in terms of solutions. That is understandable because fixing things makes a man feel useful.Offering solutions is HH way of showing his people that they can rely on him for help.so UPND are baffles when their solutions are not readily accepted. “I can’t understand why you would talt about a problem if you didn’t want a solution!”But “understanding must precede advice”.people lets look where HH is because thus where the solution is. We are not here to please others but our own brighter future and our children in next day to come! FORWARD

  21. In Zambia we worship and embrace poverty, failure, criminals. We never learn. people are seated as though nothing nasty is happening. A few selfish people are stepping on our young democracy and we are not even bothered. Everything in this country has been thrown to the wind, High rate of inflation, runaway exchange rate, high unemployment among our youth, poor health care, grand corruption, lawlessness mention it the list is endless. Our country is in DUNUNA REVERSE GEAR /SYSTEM and we are happy to dance to such nosense. We will have ourselves to blame if we let PF steal this election because things in economic terms will be worse, lawlessness will be order of the day for the next five years.

  22. When u see ECZ delaying the announcement of the Presidential Winner that should tell u the encumbent, Lungu is losing and Ecz is struggling to give him a lifeline. The results have been posted and Observers know HH has won this election outright. Lungu cannot come to terms with the loss so he is pressurising Chulu to come up with cooked results and declare him the Winner. That is why its taking long for ECZ to announce these results. All stakeholders and Observers are watching every step Chulu will takes. Could this be Chulu’s waterloo? Time will tell!

You guys do not have what it takes to lead Zambia and your supporters are pathetic too! Just go in ministry departments where you have the “HHs” and you will see what Zambia now will be afraid of! Politics 101.
