Riots have broken out in most parts of Southern Province following the re-election of President Edgar Lungu.

Shortly after the declaration was made, some UPND supporters took to the streets of Choma burying tyres and blocking roads in protest against Mr Lungu’s re-election.

Hours later the riots spread to Monze, Magoye and Livingstone.

In Choma riot police have been deployed and teargas canisters fired to disperse the protestors.

They say the election has been stolen from Hakainde Hichilema by the Electoral Commission of Zambia.

Some interviewed said they have suffered enough and will not allow another election victory to be stolen.

Some market stalls in Monze and Choma of Southern Province have been gutted by protesting residents following the reelection of President Edgar Lungu.

Southern Province Commissioner of Police Godwin Phiri,who confirmed the development yesterday, said the police were on the ground to control the situation.

The Southern Province overwhelmingly voted for Mr Hichilema in Thursday’s elections.

    • PF should be ashamed of themselves. Lungu lost, I like Lungu but cheating to get back to power is wrong and just destroys democracy. HH won and this is a test to our constitutional court.

    • UPND SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR ENCOURAGING TRIBALISTIC VOTING IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE. WE REMEMBER WHEN hh WAS CHOSEN AS THE PARTY’S LEADER IT WAS ALL BASED ON THE QUALIFICATION OF BEING A TONGA,
      THERE SHOULD BE A LAW AGAINST SUCH BLATANT TRIBALISM IN ZAMBIA.

  2. For the first time in the history of this country we have witnessed real rigging without any guilty feeling! Remember what happened to Mazoka! Where is Mwanawasa?

    • There was no rigging. You just lost. You thought by voting like that you would win. Zambia is bigger!!! Zambians have just said not to tribal politics.

      They are only destroying their own infrastructure and property by these riots and it may take time to repair them. So it is them who are losing twice

    • There was no rigging for some of us who were privileged to be in mulungushi we knew on Friday that HH had lost what took time to announce the results was verification. HH won in 3 provinces while the rest were taken by Lungu. You must very naive and absurd where do u even get the logic to explain where one party gets the majority of seats in Parliament then you expect the one with minority seats to win. How do you expect one to rule the country when more than half of his votes came from one region? To say the least Tongas are pathetic. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. HH always plays to the gallery and should grow up.

    • Mwanawasa died of a stroke and Mazoka allegedly poisoned … isshhh this thing goes a long way man. Just realised that even then southerners where despised. What a Nation what a people. We a peace and reconciliation moment as a country. But not engineered by the church it is a compromised institution now i dont know who will trust it going forward.

  3. Riots allover the South. Let the people of Zambia speak up for once and force Lungu to the negotiating table. A broad based government of national unity is what is needed to heal the wounds. The country is divided right now. A challenge at the ConCourt is not enough. Twice the elections have been stolen .

    • @ Dungu, I was going to understand and agree with you if riots were being contemplated countrywide! This is a regional feeling rather than a national one and it is part of UPND strategy to force a government of national unity. It had already been talked about and exposed in the past! The fact they voted overwhelmingly for UPND regardless of what PF had done in that province does not mean that everyone agreed with them. The only way to challenge Lungu’s re-election is through the Constitutional Court not riots and Govt.of National Unity is not provided for in our constitution!

      You have a sick utopian mind. A GNU based on a tribal cause cannot fly in Zambia. I had expounded on this scheme for many months on the threads and here we are. I’m being vindicated that you guys have been merely chasing a GNU. Sorry its not gona happen.

    • A government of national unity my foot! What for? Because the Tongas are fighting? Imagine if UPND had to form Government what would be its composition? It’s not the option now they should cut their losses and move on. A GNU never works.

    • @5 Bull’s hit,sad to hear of deaths. All these because one person has lost an election?!! The problem is that some of the people from that province feel when a person ascends to some position of responsibility then they all elevate their status. This behavior shows that with HH in power those who voted against him or those he hates especially Bembas would have been victims at the hands of his tribes men. I will not be surprised if those killed are non-Tongas especially Bembas and Easterners!

    • 2011 Sata wins elections and shops and property supposedly owned by MMD supporters were looted. The cops folded their arms the Government then did nothing to correct the situation. A seed had been sown and these are the fruits of it all. Institutions of governance must be independent of all political interference and must remain functional at all times. The current situation must not be allowed to continue were cops are perceived to be henchmen for those in power and are unable to act professionally and impartial.

  7. They should have rioted in the same way when HH sidelined the people Mazoka left for Satas Family Forest and imposed ‘Dr’ GBM as running mate. You just scored an own goal. Infact with the Dundumwezi Formula bring on a re-run you will even suffer more defeat. Why should we be held at gunpoint by your so- called PVT. If PF produces GBM’s forged G12 certificate even HH will be disqualified. Tukafilila munsenga mwe ngombe mwe !

      Do not think that leaving your country will disconnect you from your roots. Whatever it is you ran away from will follow you even there until you let God help you. Clearly you are not passionate about our land and its people.

      I forgive you for what you have said. But if you preach anymore unfounded word which God has not ordained for Zambia, your own tongue shall work the same curse against you. But if you pray for Zambia and speak a blessing, your tongue shall work blessings for you a hundredfold.

      Zambia is blessed regardless of any…

  10. Just may be if UPND did not welcome all those whose common interest was their hatred for Lungu, the Zambian people might have been sympathetic. I mean those who “DEFECATED NOT DEFECTED” to UPND from PF and MMD. The likes of Muzungu wopusa Scott, GBH, KIlometre Sampa, Jonah Nevers Mumba who is still in the Whales belly for abandoning Gods mission, incompetent Mulenga Sata and horde of non performing MMD MPs. These people did not did not add value to UPND and did not bring any meaningful numbers. All they spoke about was their hatred for Lungu and continuously, insulting and mocking his back ground and belittling the development projects which the masses have witnessed and benefitted from in Zambia. This might have annoyed the voters who were hanging on the fence and changed their vote…

  13. Iyoo kwena there’s foolish dribble in Zambia. This election victory does not count for a democratic process. It’s a regression of democracy. The elections were not fair not free and not credible! Thanksgiving rally to legitimize violence, brutality, oppression and repression? Deep down in yr hearts you know you have stolen the votes. The least you can do is sit down and shut up!!!

  14. But kwena! Is it all necessary to riot over an election as though one has been sentenced to death! I like what one Caritas Father said last night on ZNBC TV: “Democracy is floating oneself to the people, but the people speak through votes. Once they speak, you don’t impose yourself upon them”. The voting pattern itself reeks of blatant “Kapatulula” in the region, and if they want their candidate to win, they must embrace “One Zambia, One Nation”

  16. IF hh WAS A NATIONAL LEADER AND NOT A REGIONALIST THAT HE IS, HE WOULD CONDEMN THE TRIBALISTIC VOTING PATTERN PARTICULARLY IN SOUTHEN PROVINCE BUT THAT CAN NEVER HAPPEN.
    WHAT WAS ALSO SHOCKING WAS THE VOTING FOR HH IN WESTERN AND NW PROVINCE. WHAT HAS HH EVER DONE FOR THEM TO DESERVE ALL THOSE VOTES.
    I ALSO FEEL FOR MRS INONGE WINA FOR THE EMBARRASSINGLY LOW SUPPORT FOR ECL IN WESTERN PROVINCE. AND YET THE MOST COSTLY PROJECT EVER IN ZAMBIA IN THE NAME OF THE THE KALABO COULD NOT CHANGE THE MINDSET OF THE PEOPLE IN THAT PROVINCE.
    WHAT DO THEY WANT? NO DEVELOPMENT THEY WOULD SAY THEY ARE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST. THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

You the Southern Province have reaped what you sowed for Lungu and the Zambian people- Losing an Election, brothers and sisters no govt of national unity.

    • I am the lawyer. My advise is that no court will find anything wrong with the ECL camp but everything wrong with HH. The election results were being processed strictly on HH’s directives/commands, no votes were stolen fron HH – this is a case of a child who has eaten his share of food from his mother without when his friend waits outside and he goes to demand that he eats the food of his friend prepared by his friend’s mother. If his friend’s mother denies him access to the food he says banjibila ifyakulya.

      The EVIDENCE is clear. The G12 forms for the Lusaka constituencies were not completed as required under the Electoral Act. The ECZ has publicly admitted that this is a FACT!

      No proper court in the world can possibly refute such clear and unambiguous EVIDENCE.

  21. On the single tarred road to NW, the road disappears long before you reach Solwezi. A 2 hours journey takes 5 to 6 hours. Accidents occur due to invisibility caused by dust on the road. And yet A significant portion of TAX comes from mines in NW. A friend of mine in PF conceded that they could expect little from NW on that account. The NW vote is not tribal. It is purely a rejection of exploitation and non development period. Be issue based when you discuss on forums. MMD proved that if you bring development to NW, you get the vote. Stupid govt stopping even the development of NW railway.
    The Muzungus have given up after having their offer to maintain the road rejected by RDA who have uprooted even the little Tarmac that was left. They Muzungus have bought planes to fly from Ndola to…

    • I am also in solwezi. but your information is not all accurate. the people who confused things are the locals here and the council of elders. the RDA is made up of local people who refused to release funds because of regionalism. development funds have been sitting in the bank but the locals refused to use the money to carry out projects simply because they don’t like the seating president. before you go and call me names, I am from here as well. am a pure breed Kaonde. no mixture. but the attitude here is wrong. that’s why development will never reach us. get rid of the council of elders! they are retrogressive!!!

  24. While Tongas have been absent from the Zambian governance system since independence, they are not amongst the poorest of Zambians. Tongas have a culture of wealth creation and they are patient. I think HH is more magnanimous than myself because he wanted to share his capacity for wealth creation with the nation. Am not like that, instead I will be the President of the Zambian Economy just as the whites have managed to be the masters of our economy it doesn’t matter who cheats himself they are the president of Zambia. The world economy is at a logical level. Those who tie their minds to physical boundaries are doomed to failure-like 95% of Zambians.

  26. God created the earth without boundaries. Boundaries were created to uphold the principal of divide and rule. But eventually even the minds of many have been divided in suit. Be citizens of the world and decide to be a citizen of any country by the currency you decide to adopt. See, this world has abundance as opposed to scarcity that has been preached to you people ever since you were born. Thats why Zambians are now thieves, most of them. Most have bastered children, they copy in primary school, cheat at secondary school, University, School of Law, pretend to offer service, steal government resources, steal company time mention it.

  27. People in Zambia no longer value quality. While many envy HH, I envy him too, his capacity to create wealth. My consolation is that I measured him and very soon I will surpass him because God has blessed me with Wisdom, I prayed for it when I was a small boy – my mam advised me to earnestly pray for it – MHSRIP. And I tap from the source of abandance of knowledge and time is on side because am still young. I extrapolated a curve of wealth accumulation up HH’s age, my conclusion is he has not done much.

  29. Stealing limits how far one can go because you are limited to what is available. You can’t steal what does not exist. Your creativity is therefore atrophied. One needs to guard themselves against behaviors that subtract from ones faculties. If there were no borders called Zambia people of Zambia would talk about never having gone round the world, now you have people who talk about have never been to a border point, why not talk the world and the world economy. This is a very small country and very small economy. Jesus said those that are faithful in the little will be faithful in the big things, its character that he talks about. In other words character fits all sizes.

If the Zambians have not decided to change government, NO SINGLE PROVINCE OR INDIVIDUAL can do… I have been a voter since 1991…

    History…

    1. From UNIP to MMD – The whole Zambia decided to change the system and it was successful. Not even KK could change the decision of the Zambia.
    2. From MMD to PF – The whole Zambia decided to change the system, and it was changed… Not even RB could change the decision of the people.
    And now the people have not decided to change and no single one or two provinces or an individual can change that… The whole Zambia should decide and PF will lose… So do not…

  42. Tongas thought were very clever people. That type of voting does not work in Zambia. Truly now I believe that tonga people are selfish. Why should you be voting on tribal lines. For me I do not belong to any political party, but sometimes give credit were it is due. People from Western, Southern and North Western Provinces will never appreciate anything good. If HH ask you to eat faeces, surely you are going to eat. This is not good fellow Zambians. This is One Zambia One Nation. This is not Edgars country alone but for all Zambians. Mind you, whether you have been suffering the entire life, HH will never resuscitate you. You will continue suffering. All you need is to work hard rather than crying for spilt milk. Typical tongas

  44. Tonga’s won’t be allowed to lead mother Zambia, even GOD can’t allow that to happen because their intentions for mother Zambia are very pathetic, Tonga’s thinks hh is god,to them hh can bring heaven,to them hh is something more than GOD,so this kind of people are not worthy to be called human beings.to them elections are rigged & even hopeless hh can’t condemn his tribalistic voting pattern,to him it’s normal . anyway just know that it will be difficult for tonga’s to produce a presido, otherwise they will feel cursed if they won’t change this pathetic trend.timely warning…!

  45. Shame upon Tongas in Southern Province and their tribal cousins in Western & North Western Provinces for exhibiting tribal voting patterns which have misfired in your own faces.

    • The only problem with our brothers from ”Dundumwezi” is lack of exposure. Sibayenda to see how life is lived in other parts of the country! Place of birth Dundumwezi, school, dundumwezi community school, secondary Dundumwezi Basic, College Popota College in Choma, work agricultural assistant in Dundumwezi! Eish you cannot vote like that honestly…it’s not things!

  46. The problem starts with HH who claims his votes were stolen when deep down his heart knows he just lost.He demanded for verification of results from his representatives compared to ECZ and results tallied.Now why waste time to allow his followers who don’t seem to be thinking up right destroy their own and only infrastructure in the expense of tribal voting?HH IF YOU ARE TO EXPOSE GOOD LEADERSHIP COME OUT IN THE OPEN AND TELL YOUR FOLLOWER THE TRUTH,DON’T BEHAVE LIKE LUCIFER IF YOU ARE NOT THE ONE

  47. Hey people we are led by our constitution, not people, the presidents are just operatives of the law. They can’t do anything outside the law. So the most important requirement for presidency is the ability of one to uphold the constitution. About development the country is just supposed to have a national development plan which is adhered to and is non-partisan. Performance of parties and presidents in governance is supposed to measured against this blue print with milestones. Not people just accusing each other and claiming to have done and that. For example, it should be possible to take a president to ransom for doing something good for people which was not part of the plan i.e increasing civil servants salaries.

  48. This lawlessness must not be allowed to go on! Lock ’em up including those who are instigating the mob! Let Hazalusa Hagain repair the damage in his tribal land. I am sure Nosedramas and Je Je agree! Everyone knows that this is an overwhelming defeat of a Tonga party and those who Watch Dogs in Zambia Online and the Post Newspaper! What is your take guys?
