HH accuse ECZ of colluding with PF to rig elections as PF leads, with 24 Constituencies left

Headlines HH accuse ECZ of colluding with PF to rig elections as...

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema addressing media from his residence
UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has accused the country’s election mangers the Electoral Commission of Zambia of deliberately not providing the G12 in Lusaka so as to live room for manipulation of results.

Mr Hichilema who spoke at a media briefing held at his house around 22:40hrs Sunday, said the G12 sheet is the only proscribed document which is the legal requirement used for recording ” the will of the people.”

He said nothing can replace the G12 document which is supposed to be used to authenticate the results and that the document was deliberately left out in Lusaka so that the ECZ in collusion with the ruling PF can wait for results from other provinces and use the Lusaka vote to compensate for any deficits.

He wondered how G12 can not be available in Lusaka where the ECZ is located adding that some polling stations are a stone’s throw from ECZ offices.

He explained that the omission was a deliberate move made to secure votes for the PF saying events in some polling stations point to that fact.

He further claimed that PF cadres took over polling stations shortly after the close of polling further adding that some cadres were voting more than twice while others went to vote with premarked ballots in their pockets.

He also accused the ECZ of trying to promote instability in the country by colluding with the PF to take away the decision of Zambians.

Mr Hichilema has since vowed not accept the results describing the process and results as a coup on democracy by those who control the army.

He said he will fight for Zambians and called on well meaning Zambians to fight with him.

And President Edgar Lungu of the Patriotic Front has maintained the lead in Presidential Election Results from 132 constituencies out of the 156 constituencies country wide.

Electoral Commission of Zambia -ECZ- Chairperson Justice Esau Chulu has so far announced that Mr. Lungu has 1,454,165.

His closest rival Hakainde Hichilema of United Party for National Development now has 1,383,594

The margin stands at 70,571 votes

ECZ is yet to announce results from 24 constituencies and the next update is scheduled at 06:30 hours this morning.

  1. Set a date for re-run. No one reached 50% of votes, despite HH & Edgar both doubled votes they got last year.
    Unfortunately votes counted are more than registered voters. ECZ answer to 5 -7 : It can’t.
    It will take them 4 days to count that. So the earlier the rerun, the better so we have final results before 24th October.

    • VESSEL PF: “requestdockingcoordinates”

      DOCKING STATION:”look for nearest station and guide the ship.”

      VESSEL PF:” condition preventing docking is in effect”

      DOCKING STATION: “hold-position”

      VESSEL PF:”recalldockinginstructions”

      DOCKING STATION:”all clear approach”

      VESSEL PF:”after fulfilled initial real docking condition,vessel stopped near the docking seat,depth control was used to approach while stern vertical thrusts went all out”

      VESSEL PF: “all clear DOCKING NOW COMPLETE”

      DOCKING STATION:” good job Captain EL and welcome to State house”

      2016 Edgar has won

    • HH is mentally unstable. He is a textbook case of grandiose schizophrenia! He thinks the whole country is against him. Very deranged. Basically, he is running cult in Southern Province. This is what adverse childhoods can do to people!

      Please raise your children well to avoid more bitter crazies like HH

    • UPND Lets NOT BE DISTRACTED,This move would be falling into the TRAP OF DELAYING RESULTS & ALLOWING TIME FOR RIGGING!!!

      GIVE Ba PamaFI ENOUGH ROPE TO HANG THEMSELVES!!!!!!! THE LONGER THEY TAKE TO RELEASE, THE FEWER EXCUSES & INCREASED PANIC TO MANIPULATE RESULTS & HENCE INCREASED PROPENSITY TO MAKE MISTAKES!!!

      WE ALREADY HAVE ELECTORAL MISAPPROPRIATION ON OUR SIDE, EX-MINISTERS HAD UNFAIR ADVANTAGE/ILLEGAL ADVANTAGE BY HELPING THEMSELVES TO GOVT FUNDS FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS!!!
      THEIR WINS WILL BE NULLIFIED, BUT WE SHOULD ALSO SEEK TO PROSECUTE FOR DEFRAUDING OF GOVT FUNDS!!!!! THEY HAVE NO DEFENCE FOR HAVING STOLEN THOSE FUNDS – MARTHA PREPARE FOR THAT CASE, RATHER THAN HALTING THE RESULTS PUBLICATION!!!!!!!!!!!

      #CHAGWAMURDERER HAS FALLEN!!!!!!! PamaFI KUYABEBELE!!!

      I thank you!!

    • Sore loosers UPND.
      We all knew you could not win Zambia.
      Zambia is a lot more than southern, Western and northwestern provinces.

      What ungrateful and tribal people you are. Disgusting. Don’t even say easterners or northerners are the same because you got much more votes in these areas.

      I hope the other provinces will do the same.

    • Guys pa RSA, PERSONA NON-GRATA, aka “THE HIGH COMM” was on a plane last night for Jo’burg, TIP THE RSA chaps, he is PERSONA NON-GRATA, the chap that pleaded for him to come there is LEAVING PLOT 1, THEY SHOULD CAGE THE CHAP!!!

      #CHAGWA HAS FALLEN!!!! #PamaFIKUYABEBELE!!!!!!

      I thank you!!

    • Looks like a funeral house. Who has died. The chancers like Nevers are looking groomy and wondering where their next silver will come from now.

    • PRESIDING OFFICERS & OTHERS being USED TO RIG, you see, when ARRESTED LIKE THE CHAP FROM KANYAMA, YOU WILL BE ON YOUR OWN FACING CHARGES IN COURT – RIGGING OF ELECTIONS IS A VERY SERIOUS CRIME, DON’T THINK CROOKS LIKE CHAGWA WILL BE THERE TO PROTECT YOU!!!!

      #CHAGWA THE MURDERER HAS FALLEN NOW TRYING TO STEAL VOTES!!! #PamaFI KUYABEBELE!!!!

      I thank you!!

    • Regionalists will always be regionalists. Look at the paltry votes Lungu got in Southern Provincince particularly and what hh got in other provinces. What has Hh ever done for SP, NWP and WP?
      Rampant tribalism was at play.
      SHAME.

    • @1.1

      Katondo boys AKA Emanual Mwamba.. God is watching you. You might be clever in people’s eyes but God knows every heart. Very soon God will expose. You will not be allowed to set the country ablaze. Yes you be docked in SA but soon you will redock in LSK…watch the space….

    • Nostradumas,
      You are praying for a re-run because HH has no hope in hell of winning this election. Umuntu Ni Lungu

    • Zambians will never respect procedures…some of these mistakes never happen with the exams of Grade 12s. ECZ board have to go after this!

    • EACH & EVERY ONE OF THE 77,000 VOTES THAT HAVE BEEN HIDDEN/WITHDRAWN IN LUSAKA, WILL HAVE TO BE REINSTATED!!!!!! NOTHING LESS THAN THIS SHOULD BE ACCEPTABLE!!!!!!
      NOT REINSTATING THEM means WE AS A COUNTRY ARE REALLY NOT INTERESTED IN DEMOCRACY, JUST AS WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN RELIGION BUT PRETEND TO BE CHRISTIANS – ONES THAT STEAL & KILL WITH IMPUNITY!!!!

      THERE WILL BE NO NEED FOR A RE-RUN!!!!!!!!!!

      WHAT IS REQUIRED IS SIMPLY A RECOUNT!!!!! IN FACT A RE-COUNT IS A BRIDGE TOO FAR!!!!
      WE HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE OF ELECTORAL MALPRACTICE & IMPROPRIETY WHICH ECZ HAVE GLADLY IGNORED – AS ECZ ARE SO INCOMPETENT & CORRUPTED – WE ARE THUS IN UNCHARTERED WATERS, & in all HONESTY THE CHIEF JUSTICE , with ALL THIS NAKED & RAMPANT MALPRACTICE/IMPROPRIETY – CANNOT & WILL NOT IN HIS LEGAL…

    • …..WILL NOT IN HIS LEGAL CONSCIENCE & HIS LEGAL DUTY, BEFITTING A CHIEF JUSTICE, WILL HE SWEAR IN A PERSON WITH SO MUCH UNCERTAINTY, HANGING AROUND THEIR AUTHENTICITY AS A TRUE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT – HE IS THE LAST STOP IN THE PROCESS!!

      A SO COMPROMISED ECZ CANNOT & WILL NOT FORCE HIM TO DECLARE A FRAUD INTO OFFICE!!
      NOT EVEN CROOKED DEFENCE CHIEFS CAN FORCE HIM TO DO SO!!
      ECZ HAVE TO BE DISMISSED FROM TOP TO BOTTOM!!!

      DEFENCE FORCES, OP & POLICE SHOULD NOW MOVE TO SECURE THESE BALLOTS, AWAITING AN “EMERGENCY ECZ” OVERSEEN BY THE CHIEF JUSTICE, TO CARRY OUT A RE-COUNT!!!!!
      THIS, SO THAT HE IS REASSURED THAT THE PERSON HE SWEARS, IS INDEED THE GENUINE CHOICE OF THE PEOPLE!!!!!

      THIS WILL BE THE TURNING POINT IN ZAMBIA’S HISTORY – CHOOSING BETWEEN THE PATH OF PEACE or THE…

    • …..THE TURNING POINT IN ZAMBIA’S HISTORY – CHOOSING BETWEEN THE PATH OF PEACE or THE PATH OF CHAOS – we all KNOW WHICH THUGS HAVE & WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS!!!

      #CHAGWA THE MURDERER HAS FALLEN!!!! #PamaFIKUYABEBELE!!!

      I thank you!!

  2. No fighting, what sort of a leader are you, you want to cause a civil war, no wonder the people have rejected you. It’s a bitter pile to swallow but you just have to swallow it. Let Gbm take over,maybe he might win in 2021.

  3. Voters in Zambia no longer decide the winner it’s the 1diots counting and announcing who are. Son Satan Chakolwa please we the majority sober minded people have rejected you.

    • Zambia is a failed state. As a country, Zambia is a mockery of what a country could look like. Zambia is just another big black hole in Africa masquerading as a country.

    • The majority in Cowthern Province elected HH…He will never be President based on 3 provinces…Sorry

  4. lungu is not good for zambia yet he still gets all these votes what are the people of zambia thinking total ignorance.under lungu zambia will not be able to heal the wounds this drunk will bring the country is heading for a total collapse. no eduction,health,infrastructure and economy. the kwacha will be like the titanic. goodluck to those *****s that voted president jamieson is all yours. bad judgment get ready to sink the boat. hh is a good man solid and safe.

  5. I have watched most African countries fumble even with the most straight forward aspects of governance such as conducting transparent electoral process. I shake with frustration and resignation at the backwardness of some African countries. I pray no more for Africa. God seems to have left her to her own devices. Look at Zimbabwe, Uganda and now Zambia. Zambia, once an oasis of peace is no more. In a very short time now, Zambia will consolidate her posture as another basket case. Her Kwacha is still in a band of “the world’s worst performing currencies. Africa will forever remain a backward continent as long as it propels and encourages forth backward individuals without vision. Many seek political office to amass wealth. A few seek to genuinely serve their people. We all must weep…

  6. Ba Zambia We …We Love You!!!

    As predicted we have won, these elections were free and fair and both International and Local Observers have confirmed this!

    HH you have been crying since 2006! This is your last run, no more just go back to Namwala and brai yourself some pig trotters as you hand over to GBV!

    We said it, we knew it and it has happened!

    #HungryHyenaHasFallenForThe5thTime

    Ba Zambia We…We Love You!!!!

  7. KATONDO BOYS WARNS HH

    HAKAINDE HICHILEMA PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT ONCE THE ECZ ANNOUNCES THE FINAL RESULTS AND EDGAR LUNGU IS DECLARED THE WINNER, YOU WILL BE CHARGED WITH TREASON IF YOU MAKE ANY STATEMENT THAT WILL INSIGHT VIOLENCE….EDGAR IS ABOUT TO RETAIN THE INSTRUMENTS OF POWER WHICH IS AT THE MOMENT IS IN THE HANDS OF THE ZAMBIAN JUDICIARY………

    JUST BE CAREFUL…..OR ELSE

    Edgar Lungu has won

    i thank you

    • And your point is? Every party has strongholds except Rainbow. HH in his desperation forgot about eastern province and unceremoniously discarded Canisious Banda like a used tampon in favour of the fat wife beater. He failed to penetrate cosmopolitan areas such as Lusaka and the CB and you expect him to win?

  8. so you *****s you think HH is the best leader of the zambian? no no just tell him to retire and hand over the party to his Tongas. you even told you on HH to bring all new comers. now what these Mumba, GBM, LUPANDO MWAPE ,SAMPA, MWALITETA ,SATA HAVE BROUGHT IN THESE ELECTIONS? UPND FROM THE START SAID IT , THEY WONT ACCEPT THE RESUITS. THEY UNDERMINE PF AND THOUGHT HAVE WON THE ELECTION EVEN B4 THE VOTE IS BEING CAST.

  9. OUR JOB IS DONE NOW LETS LEAVE BLOGGING FOR BITTER UPND LOSERS,,,,THEY CAN NOW START CONSOLING THEMSELVES……STAY ONLINE UPND,,,,WE ARE NOW OFFICIALLY OFFLINE,,,BACK TO REAL WORK,,,TALK TO YOU IN 4 YEARS TIME,,,byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    EDGAR HAS WON

    I thank you

  10. Nothing new . HH will not accept the results. I GUESS even if he wins. How can he claim they rigged in Lusaka where most monitors were. Where his headquarters is? If they rigging claims were from Luapula or Northern or eastern one would understand.

  11. I have a hard time reading some comments here – my two pence, Mr. Hichilema is the most unpatriotic Zambian who has ever vied for political office! No love for country, just plain ego!

    I am the best, therefore…
    I am wealthy, therefore
    I am young, therefore
    I am intelligent, therefore

    Life doesn’t work like that, people will not vote or hire you just because you think you are the best and your opponent is rubbish, it doesn’t work like that.

    You can’t get a chick by trashing her current – big no.

    May the best man win.

    • Patriot well said. I am so, so very happy to make your acquaintance. Through out this campaign period HH has equivocally failed to explain how exactly he is going to achieve what has eluded the rest. Ok he talks about free education? How is he going to achieve this if I may ask? If we stop paying school fees who will pay the teachers and lecturers. As things stand most foreign investors are not meeting their full tax burden. This translates into a deficit in government revenue. This deficit has to be catered for somehow. then he talks about subsidies, this too will create another deficit in revenue. so then where will he get money to cover this deficit/ simple borrow! and more borrowing. as a country we spend more than we make. why? we don’t manufacture! we have no value adding…

  12. What makes HH think that he has won when most of his MPs have lost? HH should thank PF for adopting weaker candidates in most constituencies otherwise he was going to lose like rains. Come 2021 PF will work even harder learning from Tonga’s who they thot had changed

  13. Whoever voted for Chakolwa is as 1ditioc and stupid as the Son Of Satan ECL. If Chakolwa wins I ll cease to be Zambian there is no way I can call such a visionless,useless,dullness,directionless,brainless,needless,ruthless,spinless and a hardcore criminal as my president.

    • Ako usulile ekopa noko. You vi ba Tonga have a different view of Edgar BUT the rest of Zambia has just proved you otherwise #NkomboForUPNDpresidencyNow!

    • HH look around you. Have you noticed that the only people championing your ‘fight’ for the Presidential vote are Hungry Hyenas like Nevers Mumba etc ? Why isnt Munkombwe, Mweetwa etc helping you fight ? You sidelined the winning team for newcomers such as the Sata Family Forest ( The Cartel) . You are in this presidential fight alone ! As Southerners we voted for our MPs and since they have won, we see no reason to fight for your belly. Our MPs will be getting the parliamentary salaries and gratuities even without you at the helm. You are on youre own !

    • Mukalipo baba? I thought you had done us all a favour and you know what yourself. I guess you are a masochist, waiting for the final results to come and really hurt you then you and your ka friend ka Splaka ujeni will do the most gracious thing you have ever done in your lives and end it all. Surely that would be the best thing for you both as living with so much hate, bile and bitterness cant be good. I wonder when is the last time you laughed or even just smiled? My God, it must be so sad being you, imagine existing day in and day out with all that pent up rage. It must be exceptionally painful when you see all the love that ECL is getting I bet, but you know what you can do to end all that pain…….

  14. Fellow Zambian at home, I live in the USA. Please help me understand your Electral system as regards the counting and tallying of votes.

    If votes are counted and captured in the presence of each party’s agent and aspiring candidate before transmitting the figures to your Central Place for consolidation and authauntication . One would assume that agents and candidates would have the election figures on their phones or note books as reference in case of dispute.

    What is going on between ECZ AND your political parties?

    • This is the shocking aspect of this election. UPND Agents are always present and even take pictures of the final polling station results. So is is quite baffling that this ka HH should be crying all the time without facts ! I think its time Garry Nkombo took over UPND. Yes we need a convention right after the elections.

    • All parties are represented at every stage from printing of ballots to verification of results during the voting in polling stations they are represented and it is relatively impossible to manipulate

  15. We all know your agents were present throughout has any of them disputed the results they authenticated ? Were any of them threatened or coerced to approve wrong results ? Own up my brother, Zambia has just rejected you again !

  16. Tongas we can forgive you but we shall not forget. Believe me come 2021 we shall vote like you. All PF needs to do is to reduce HH’s votes from CB, Lsk, CP, LP,EP,NP,MP by adopting strong candidates and grow the economy. PF should Quickly change leadership in all structures. We need sharp,vibrant leaders who love PF not money

    • What will happen if in 2021 there won’t be Tonga candidates on the ballot. Tribalism is useless. Stop it. Zambia has more than 72 tribes. Should we all be voting for tribesmen in elections. Perhaps that explains the apathy. Those that don’t have tribesmen on the ballot simply stay away.

  17. HH made a fake pvt for himself. In zambia very few people know what a pvt is including HH himself he shld ask experts from FODEP who know what pvt is and how it is used to help empower himself and his party with real knowledge about a pvt not guess work knowledge. Sorry sir your pvt was a gonga inquire where you can get an o.g one. Others the elections were free and fare why are your polling agents not make a fassy about the elections results because they are the ones who were on the ground and not you. Bana kugonga Bantu bako on the ground this was really operation jumbo of ship has managed to dock using the usual don’t kubeba pattern left as alegacy by the PF founder. Patali telelo try 2021 and 2026 may be your hand can stop going permantly forward without stopping it might just land…

  18. So it seems the long journey has come to an end now, all those PVT numbers that UPND was talking about yesterday was all false? Mr. @kudos has done his job, he disappeared from the forum to focus on…… while the other Katondo boys was busy covering him.
    Its going to be hard for HH to change the decision, these people will do everything just for HH not to enter State House. They killed (Mapanzi), now they rigged and they are prepared to do anything to have him in the office. Its a crucial moment, if not handled with care, we can experience more life loses, so I urge fellow Zambians to refrain from these power hungry mongers for the sake of continued peace. Thank you to those who stood for the cause of change, 5 years is not too far away.

  19. HH look around you. Have you noticed that the only people championing your ‘fight’ for the Presidential vote are Hungry Hyenas like Nevers Mumba etc ? Why isnt Munkombwe, Mweetwa etc helping you fight ? You sidelined the winning team for newcomers such as the Sata Family Forest ( The Cartel) . You are in this presidential fight alone ! As Southerners we voted for our MPs and since they have won, we see no reason to fight for your belly. Our MPs will be getting the parliamentary salaries and gratuities even without you at the helm. You are on youre own !

  20. My brother we are equally as astonished as u are, what u hv said is exactly the case here but u know some leaders are not wealth to lead people coz they are too hungry for power to be trusted & only intrested in sheeding blood to sacrifice for their wealth,lf lndeed they are fighting for us why cant they allow the situation to cool for the sake of peace then they come back to us and seek the way forward?They are perusing their own agenda.Otherwise we will handle them don’t worry they are our brothers and we love them.Christian

  21. President Lungu, am grateful of the massive development you have brought generally in Zambia and in my place in particular and for this me and many who appreciate your hard work have renewed your 5 year Presidency.
    Now let’s ensure that the Provinces that have stood by you receive massive infrastructure and human development, it will only be justice to this. Ignore the other 3 Provinces which don’t appreciate.

  22. It is unacceptable not to provide to provide results other than those on G12 especially in Lusaka. And why did PF cadres take over the polling stations? The answer to resolve this dispute is for all votes in Lusaka to be counted again with the list of all who voted verified. All excess votes should be rejected. An election rerun in Lusaka or where there’s a dispute should be done with no cadres allowed t the results

  23. @Zambian, I like your thinking!! Political parties are represented at respective totaling centres and and one wonders how the rigging issue is arising.
    Defeat is really painful especially when you spent a fortune on your campaigns!!!

  24. Stupid Zambian why don’t you stick to the low & rules of elections ( 1) G12 form is the symbol & evidence that shows people voted in an election …. why is the ECZ accepting results with out G12 as a referee or an officeter ECZ must not count any result which comes with out G12 form …they have the power to stop all this sheet if they want cut out Lusaka results …if ECZ didn’t issue Lusaka province G12 forms then don’t announce the result how will you know that those results represent the will of the people or better still call for a quick presidential elections in Lusaka province ECZ is not competent if they fell to solve this issue

  25. People listen I am a Zambian born in Zimbabwe.Zambia’s democracy is admired the whole of Africa.By allowing clueless Lungu you are shooting your own leg.Can’t you Zambians learn from Zimbabwe situation.HH has a vision to help your children.Gone are the days of talking about tribalism,the country needs to dvelop.

    • @Lungu, chatile chobe iwe kolwe! When HH has failed to help his own farm laborers. How can he help me and the rest of Zambians? Wabe tall-lay!

    • @Lungu Shut up and go back to Mashonaland. you are obviously brainwashed. HH has the makings of a Mugabe. bootlicker!

  26. What is unfolding now is Edgar’s true colours. I sat with Edgar in class, like my other LLB 1977/81 classmates, I know him. He did not win the PF elections at Kabwe against Sampa, he used violence to get through and got that stupid lady Judge Mungemi Zulu to ‘endorse it at the High Court. He did not win the last presidential by election in January last year, he did not win these elections. Edgar is violence and lies. This is his surname! He will not easily go without violence.

    HH has won these elections!!!

    • So you are a lawyer, of what sort? You seem to be so lagged in expressing yourself.
      Don’t be so mushiperized, anger not good for your health.

    • @Common criminal indeed you are a fool. Ichinyambalala. Fake and ignorant. Walipena. Tawakwata amano. Ulichipumbu and am sure takwaba amano ekowafuma. You are a dull person am sure you don’t have common sense either. You talk without thinking at all, I could go on and on coz there are more names I can think of to call you. You are a waste of breathing space so I end here….FOR NOW!

  27. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT PF RIGGED THE ELECTIONS WITH THE HELP OF ECZ AND SECURITY SYSTEM. I FEEL SO BAD FOR MY FORMER COUNTRY THAT THERE IS NO MORE PATRIOTISM. BESIDES, THE CULTURE OF READING SEEMS TO BE A SERIOUS PROBLEM LIKE LUNGU SAID SUCH THAT EVEN THE ENTIRE AG FAILS TO INTERPRET THE CONSTITUTION PROPERLY JUST TO FAVOUR CROOKS. DARK MOMENTS FOR ZAMBIA INDEED! RIGGING ELECTION JUST BECAUSE PF HAS STOLEN SO MUCH AND ARE SCARED OF BEING FOUND OUT! ADDITIONALLY, THE HATE THAT NO OTHER TRIBE FROM THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE RAILWAY SHOULD RULE ZAMBIA. WE SHOULD LEARN FROM CHIPOLOPOL’S 2012 WIN OF AFCON THAT IT WAS BECAUSE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY THE GROUND HAD A NAME FROM EVERY PART OF ‘ZAMBIA’ SO IT WAS A NATIONAL TEAM INDEED AND WON. THIS TRIBAL POLITICS WILL ONLY HELP…

  28. THIS TRIBAL POLITICS WILL ONLY HELP ZAMBIA SINK FATHER AND FASTER IN LUNGU’S QUINQENNIAL REIGN OF TERROR COMING. MARK MY WORDS.

  29. Whether or not there was over- or under-counting of PF and UPND votes is only part of the issue. In the new 50+1 formula, any manipulation of votes for minor-party candidates could make it look like the “winning” candidate got more than 50% of the total when they did not.

    The margin between PF and UPND is not the full story or even the story that matters. Watch the 50% instead.

  30. No its not divided,come to kopala we are one. its just our friends in the three regions who are being so so tribal in their voting. Even foreing observers where shocked at some results which where coming from these 3 regions.

  31. Let’s be honest with ourselves, the playing field was very rough from the word go.UPND,wait till the winner is announced and you are free to petition the results within 7 days. Bring all the evidence at your disposal to prove that the election was stolen.

  32. With the of mobile phone communication, it’s almost impossible to rig a n electionin in Zambia once a vote has been cast.

    An election manager or a returning officer at a polling station counts and collates the results in the presence of everyone, agents, observers, winners and losers etc. The results are faxed or emailed to a Central tallying center copied to each party’s local and national HQ. Any major discrepancy in the results ie polling station, local party Hq NATIONAL Hq , candidate and the tallying center can be easily and quickly reconciled.

  33. The greatest regret for Zambia is exhibited by the comments that you see on this platform. You get to see the full spectrum of open tribalism and this partisan bias that one fails to even appreciate concern arguments that one makes. Let look at a few things for example, before the consititution was amended to reflect the 50 + 1, no candidate had ever go close to 50 percent, dont you think it is suspcious that suddenly the scales have been tipped in such a way that the elections are now a two horse race. What happened to the votes that Edith Nawakwi got just last year. Has she suddenly became so unpopular that she get zero votes even when she has voted for herself? Also how do you explain the ECZ suddenly saying they will stump electrol votes as official because the printing company did…

  34. Zambia does not need a Tonga for president neither does she need any other tribe as a president. What Zambia needs is a Zambian president who will convince the people of Zambia that he or she has policies that will enhance the economic prospects for all Zambians in this great nation. The voting patterns exhibited by our brothers and sisters in the Southern province shows something more than tribal voting and devoid of any democratic principle. HH has won with a sizeable number of votes from other provinces, but any other president in Zambia will not get anything worth talking about. This is a clear more than tribal voting pattern which is not good for our great nation. Every single tribe in Zambia would like to have their own president if that were to happen where do we leave Zambia? The…

  35. The Lungu-Mambwe tribes who where early settlers in Zambia (16-17 century) together with their Tonga compatriots have embraced every Zambian president voted in Zambia and have also supported HH in some wards e.g. (Kaizya in Mpulungu) but you cannot say the same with those in Southern province. Mwanawasa a bantu Botatwe was supported in the northern province on principle. You cannot talk of principle with our colleagues in the southern province, democracy does not exist there.

  36. Yaba! Simbotwe kisimbotwe fela kono asinangana. Viva ECL it’s my pleasure and opportunity to welcome PF and ECL to rule and reign for the next 5 Health and wealth yrs. God bless ECL and God bless Zambia

  37. SALADI & WATER Cannot mix.

    Best is for Zambia to be split into N/E Rhodesia & N/W Rhodesia. Voting patterns show regionalism & best way is to split the country so that western, N/W, rural C/Belt, Southern, part of Central & part of Lusaka form 1 country. We can implement our 10-point Plan

    The rest can form N/E Zambia & rule themselves even by electing self-confessed corrupt drunkards & kaloba addicts like Chikwanda.

    Mwanya IMF is at JFK Airport on the way to Dununa Reverse the Kwacha.

  38. To my former classmate HH:
    Mwana, you have fought a noble battle but there is a time to win and a time to lose. There is no need to tear your country apart and set it on fire all because yoy must win at all costs.
    And if you still want to continue in politics, there is still plenty of time for you are a young man. Pick up the pieces and analyse them one by one, try to figure out why God has denied you for the 5th time. From me your class mate, my advice is that you should go back to your former self as you fight for 2021. Your current path and especially the company you have adopted around you is sadly not the best for an otherwise intelligent young man. My classmates were all responsible citizens, please dont become an exception because of GBM and like ilk.
    Yours former classmate.

  39. Zambia is bigger than north western,western and southern provinces.
    UPND should understand that Zambians have said NO to their leader (HH).
    PF has won this election No re-run.VIVA PF

  40. All you people ridiculing HH will regret by next week when all hell will break loose under ECL. Everything is going up because of IMF conditions and the difference with HH and ECL is that HH already has a plan while ECL as usual has none. Now I know that Some Zambians are used to poverty. Anyway wait for next week! We shall see who the insults will turn to. By the way HH is rich, he just wanted to save Zambia!

  41. This NGO upnd is a perpetual loser and a real time waster! Give us a break you quarks! Your fake online polls blinded you, alas the situation from real voters is very different! We have taught you a bitter lesson you mangwarms!

  42. I want to be very honest with all you people. I’m not a fan of HH but I feel strongly for him as a fellow human being. Losing 5 times!!I remember how terrible we used to feel each time the late Sata lost an election. Then you would ask yourself, what about the candidate himself how is he feeling? Here it’s not HH who is a problem. The problem is the voting pattern. Even if another Tonga person takes over UPND,the voting pattern won’t change anytime soon. I do remember Nawakwi warning the UPND during those succession disputes after Mazoka’s death that tribalism is an enemy to UPND.They should always remember that they are just 3 of them,Southern,Western and North-Western Provinces against 7 other provinces. So they will always be fighting losing battles.

    • And we remember how Eastern province voted in 1991. The rest of Zambia voted FTJ including the Tongas of Southern province because we all felt that there was hope in FTJ. But baku Eastern supported their in-law. Lol. To be honest I feel HH is better leader than ECL. But we had leaders championing tribalism like Kambwili who was preaching CNN. If Edgar has won has a lot of work to unite this deeply divided country. A christian nation promoting hate speech and tribalism. I feel for Tongas who have been insulted left right and center including by their own national leaders.

  43. If PF stole votes from Kanyama constituency what can stop them not stealing from Mandevu. Matero, Munali and others areas like Lundazi where the announced results are more than the registered voters. Anyway this is Africa .

  44. GONE IN THE HISTORY AS A REJECT A REJECTED PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE THAT ATTEMPTED MANY TIMES AND EACH TIME HE FAILED HE GAVE A LAME EXCUSE

    IF YOU HAVE A NATIONAL WIDE APPEAL YOU DONOT NEED A CALCULATOR AND SURELY THERE IS NOT A SINGLE VOTE RIGGED YOU HAVE JUST LOST

    AS FOR GBM HE gave you a lead AND now YOU SHOULD HANDOVER TO A CANDIDATE WHO COULD WIN IT AS YOU WILL NEVER IN ZAMBIA !!! GBM is PF he will soon throw in a towel and say YOU WASTED MY TIME

    CONGLATS MR PRESDENT ELECT EDGAR CHAWAMA LUNGU

  45. MPS VOTES HAVE A CORRELATION WITH PRESIDO IN ZAMBIA ONLY UNDER EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES AND SIMILAR IN TOTAL

    YOU HAVE JUST LOST YOU WILL NEVER WIN A ZAMBIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS TRY CONGO OR GAMBIA

    MISPLACED VOTES IS FOR LUNGU NOT YOURS WHERE YOUR CADRES TRIED O INFLUNCE THE OFFICERS BUT GOOD PRESIDING AND SUPPEVISION BY LUSAKA CITY COUNCIL AND TOWN CLERK IN PARTICULAR EVEN YOUR AGENTS IN MUNALI HAVE CONCEADED DEFEAT AND SAY ITS TIME TO CHANGE THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

    • Yes HH has put up a good fight. He should congratulated. He should allow the gains he has made in PF strongholds go to waste by disputing elections. He should just go back to the drawing board and plan for 2021.

  46. UPND and their insults, can’t you just blog without calling people stu-pid. insulting, anyway you are like your leader. Not everyone can agree you with, respect other people’s opinion.

  47. In Bemba we say uwawa tabula kabepesho. When HH poured 30810 votes in the tribal dundumwezi where Edgar got only 252 votes, from the Tonga way its fine. Now that he has been taught a lesson in Lusaka he is crying. This is total madness to the fullest. if you see a presidential candidate moving about, especially if he is seen at Mulungushi and asking to be the one representing his party as opposed to his agents, just know that he has lost.if he had won the system(OP) would have reached out to him the security befitting an incoming president or just asked him to stay home. Michael Chilufya Sata was seen at Mulungushi hunting for Dan kalale the system did not bother to follow him because they new he had lost. TONGA STOP TRIBALISM TWAPAPATA. ABABEMBA TABAKAMIPELE AMA VOTES MUFWAYA

  48. ok, these are joskis…every one knew that EL would retain the presidency. HH’s time is yet to come, may be in the future he might be the next Abraham Lincon.

  49. Well well, my president, your president and our president, the time we have been waiting for………….ECL has won this years elections 2016! Congratulations your Excellency for the victory. At 1,708,999 with 54 % and the difference of 303,666 with his number 2 runner.

    From your friends in Livingstone 2016

  50. Why is it that HH ALWAYS comes with claims of vote rigging ?! This man is just too much. You have your party reps there checking, as do the other party.
    When you were leading in the votes (because the Southern & N Western votes), you were happy and there was no vote rigging. As soon as other constituencies get counted and Lungu takes the lead, you immediately start going on about voter rigging. You need to stop displaying these childish tantrums and antics and ask yourselves why you are always falling short. Almost there but never quite there…
    It’s a wonder you have not yet worked out the winning formula which Hon Mazoka used – an inclusive party ! UPND at that time was not a Tonga party – it was a party for all and had a mix of tribes.
    Not these last minute crossovers like Masebo,…

  51. Difference of 70k is small PF will fight to win…..all in PF should come to reason why this close gap this time around……if PF wins watch you will be packed politically like MMD in 2021 as some of you will be mad that you voted for PF after you get ignored….voting for HH is the only way to end UNIP politician s who built MMD and now PF….

    • SP. Where all the power is generated and the beef you buy comes comes from. Source of all electricity generation, sugar and all southern border entries.
      WP. Home of the brave and land of beef and oil
      NWP. The hub of serious mining and the Makishi
      Lambaland. The owners of the emerald and copper mines
      Lenje/Soli. Food basket.

      And oh….educate me on what Luapula and Muchinga contributes to the family table?

  52. Cry babies plotting against a decision made by the people for the people and the institution put in place thereof! You will be what you always have been: LOSERS!

  53. Are the losers from one region who had misplaced hopes still watching this space? I told them to! Watch now what will happen to the marriage of convenience soon!

  54. @Lady Gaga, crawl back to your little cave and hold a party with the man who got all the money from Zambia’s privatization programme! What plan do you think he has apart from tribalism?
