Poorly conceived use of legal systems sometimes plunges countries into turmoil. In Zambia, let us not experiment with the law and politics. The electoral majority legally voted for Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

Remember the George W. Bush elections in Georgia and ballot boxes in church yards. There was no Acting President. It’s 50%+1.

Lungu should be sworn-in and the courts should do their part, albeit, performing the role of peace makers.

Let us not pay a blind eye to the judicial activism that is creeping through the window into political rule. It is a dangerous trait.

In life, people throw stones at a mango tree that bears good fruit! Chagwa is that tree right now. Let us defend our democracy. The future is on that Tree despite the maneuvers of some people who want to bring our future down with their middle aged battle zone tactics.

The silent majority that voted lawfully for Chagwa cannot have their vote trashed through our deficit of political will to defend their collective and decisive act of voting for Lungu with more than 50+1.

To ignore the will of the electoral majority would be a traversity of democracy.

Yes, the law must and should be respected, however, it is equally true that what the law cannot properly handle remains a preserve of the people.

As such, the political constitution of government is the sovereign act of the people. Hence any judicial review of procedural questions of mistakes of a process cannot and must not invalidate the substantive will at stake; the lawful election of Edgar as President until August 2021 .

As Observers have rightly noted, it can only help in improving future processes. This is not a matter of law as such but of policy consideration. The effect by the court not to heed this humble opinion especially against the background of mindsets like the Dundumwezi factor may lead to unintentional chaotic outcomes and widespread emotional damage.

Edith Nawakwi could as well be right. What needs to be looked into is by what means was the Dundumwezi outcome made possible? Was it by sheer appeal of the UPND manifesto to voters in the affected regions?

I suggest that those involved in handling “concerns” do so in a responsible, creative, anticipatory and visionary manner that would resolve the outcome into a state respectful of the will of the majority.

If all regions had done a “Dundumwezi” would the outcome be any different? Edith Nawakwi could as well be right. What needs to be looked into is by what means was the Dundumwezi outcome made possible? Was it by sheer appeal of the UPND manifesto to voters in the affected regions?

I have no evidence to answer this vexying question but any reasonable man on the street might be excused to suspect something less than politically right was being used materially or symbolically; that is, in words including perhaps, a hate campaign.

We have a dangerous situation at hand. We are in fact in murky waters that we have never before been in. Let no one ignite the wrong match stick!

At a time like this, our Clergy must come together and set up dialogue symposium. They are an important factor in reading our national sensibilities than may be possible with a newly constituted judicial organ; respectable as the learned court might be.

Our legal fraternity know that decisions of court that break new ground come from Judicial authorities who read into both the law and policy.

It takes courage and wisdom and not merely intellect, to depart from established legal positions.

Our courts are just beginning to handle us in a new constitutional order. I urge that if they have to err, rather it be in the interest of peace than poisonous technicality.

Let there be peace and let the substantive will of the masses prevail.

I pray for civility and peace on the motherland.

    • Nega nega tug hasn’t worked for the PF. Neither will Dundumwezi. Zambians are more intelligent than that. They know that ECL never even campaigned in Dundumwezi. they know that nothing has been seen from PF government in Dundumwezi and yet you expect them to give you votes. Stupid.

    • Poverty and democracy do not mix, everyone is looking for a piece of cake from the guys in government, so the reasoning is compromised because if you say the opposite then you will note get that piece of cake, Look at how everyone is praising the guys in government, its not that all is well its because everyone wants a share of the cake, In short make the people poor and you can control them, This is what PF is doing.

    • Excerpt from “Kashikulu Mwankole!”

      There is a general belief that some of Africa’s long serving leaders, only manage to hold on to political power that long, on the sustenance of the magical powers of witchcraft. Examples of such leaders though few and rarely established include Zimbabwe’s Mugabe. The case of Zambia’s Katele Kalumba who hid in a rat size hole at his farm, while on the run from police is well documented in the press and police arrest records.

      Katele Kalumba, former foreign minister, vanished for three months after his arrest was ordered on charges of plundering the nation’s resources. Despite the best efforts of a large team of police and reported sightings from as far as Belgium, he was living undetected in a tent on his farm in north-western Zambia.
      Police say…

    • Ba Katele, I’m trying to see your wisdom in what you have written. However, the growling of your hungry stomach is disturbing me. You want the will of the people to prevail yet you discourage those who vie to establish the true will of the people. I thought you would be wise enough to see that calling for stakeholders to abandon the legal course of verifying beyond any reasonable doubt that ECL was truly elected president is injuring ECL’s legacy as a president. When some foreigners are caught manipulating the sovereign elections you want the nation to sit quite and praise the system. Where is your patriotism? When are you going to grow up sir and understand that running a country is not about serving your selfish interest. When we trusted you with leadership, what did you do? What…

    • Ba Kalumba please! What legacy did you live in the Zambian political scene. You sir, are among the disgraced politicians Zambia is not proud of. When we called on you to lead by example you plundered the nation. Do you think decisions for a few is the decisions of the Zambian people. Your call should have only ended at calling for the will of the people to prevail. Your opening statement was great until you spoiled it with explanation of what you intend to gain from rhetoric. Yes, we know Lungu has a soft spot for those who sing praises to him. Look and RB and General Kanene. For you, you may get a banjo and compose a praise hymn for Lungu under the “Christians” for Lungu. Your criminal cases and records might be purged.

  3. It is no secret that there was intimidation of other voters in Southern Province by the UPND. But HH should not become a bad loser by disputing elections where he clearly lost. I mean, it was very clear that the UPND was going to lose due to high turnouts in Lusaka (where they nearly did not campaign), Luapula, Eastern and Northern Provinces. Copperbelt also rejected HH regardless the problems faced by the mines.

    • “To ignore the will of the electoral majority would be a travesty of democracy.”

      The will of the majority of Zambians in this election is not reflected in the manipulated results. When we have a true and accurate accounting, yes we can go forward.

      Until then we will not agree to this fraud!

      Chuulu and his chaotic ECZ organization have disenfranchised over 85,000 registered voters in their scheme to rig the election in Lungus favour!

      Is that “the will of the people” ????

  4. it seems in this country everyone has been blind folded with selfishness which has resulted to people over looking the poor Zambians, this is the country that has seen massive increase of the cost of living due to the government poor planning towards the development of the nation it is so sad that people are not looking into the future. we appreciate the development pf has brought but we don’t appreciate the poverty. hh means well for this country and it pains him to seen Zambians suffering in the hands of the selfish leaders who have been there since we don’t know liberates our nation please its one Zambia one nation not the same recycled people being in the government.

How do people believe him if the GBMs, Lupando Mwape, Guy scots, Dipak Patels who have been around for a long time become his bedfellows if he wanted to change things? Or is it that he wants to be President which is everyone’s right. And there is nothing wrong with that. In fact there are lots of benefits being a president of a country than being a business person. Does it really pain him to see Zambians suffering? Well I would agree for People like Alipo Dangote – it really pains them to see African suffer.

  5. Dr Katele Kalumba the learned one enmeshed into witchcraft. The intellectualy blessed one with a twisted mind. I haven’t forgotten the shock I experienced at Learning that he too can dumb into the occult sciences, that he too can manipulate the ethers and disappear into air at will and escape police manhunt.
    Strange that today his logic fails him.
    If the police want to search your house because you’re a suspect why would you thwart their effort if your conscience was clear?
    If the pf’s conscience is clear let them relax and allow their grieving counterparts satistify themselves in whatever way the law permits.

    • @8.Wells, You are WRONG, what if you believe some one could be coming to plant evidence on you or just wants to harass and inconvenience you? What came from chasing trucks and planes ferrying election materials? Asking for recount is ok but why not even use polling certificates which were signed by all polling agents in presence of election monitors? There is also what is called PUBLIC INTEREST!- What is the implication of nullifying an election and holding fresh polls under the same “tarnished” ECZ? What will happen to all those regions that largely voted PF and are not rioting when some one tells them that they did not actually win? What if another person as we are hearing challenges the practices in Southern and other UPND strongholds during voting?

    • @Bwafyaa, Katele is talking about the will of the people. The petition is about establishing what the will of the people is. In the past vote tallying, the will of the people was obscured by a lot of irregularity where 1+ votes of the people was not accounted for or was misplaced. This is what both UPND and Nawakwi are both advocating for. If Nawakwi says the votes in Southern province were manipulated then it makes the UPND resolve to petition the results even stronger. If FDD brings evidence of malpractice in Southern Province, then the current results are really not the will of the people.

  7. Dear Dr. K. Kalumba,
    If ba LT have correctly published verbatim what you wrote, then then you are contradicting yourself. You say :-

    “ … any judicial review of procedural questions of mistakes of a process cannot and must not invalidate the substantive will at stake; the lawful election of Edgar as President until August 2021 ….”

    In other words, in plain English you are saying even if the law finds it has not been followed in electing Lungu, the law must not declare the elections unlawful even if there is proof?? Because it will hurt the feeling of the voters? What is this?. Where does it leave the rule of law, and re-engendering investor confidence in our Country?

    This clause in the constitution should be revisited when Parley gets into session. We Zambians have a serious problem; we talk too much to a point where we entangle ourselves in a mess and lose sight. So much for giving the newly signed constitution some kind of life, yeah. It looks like we have just opened an avenue for every losing candidate to delay inauguration on account of feeling cheated based on shear envy and jealousy.

    ==================================
    In a sense, the justices had no choice in the case the US of A. When the contest between George W. Bush and Al Gore proved too close to call, the contestants resorted to a series of lawsuits in an effort to settle the matter. These suits proceeded simultaneously in the state court system and in federal court. The cases largely concerned the matter and manner of vote counting (and recounting) in the pivotal state of Florida. There were charges of voter intimidation, ballot rigging — all manner of political shenanigans. Something had to be done. So no democratic political scenarios are purely ideal. We just strive to get to the ideal line.

He knows that ECL is not taking the country anywhere but he chooses to support him because he knows they belong together. Why is a witch even talking about the clergy? He knows the clergy in this country are mostly trash (who knows maybe he goes witching at night with them). I refuse to listen to a man who deliberately chose the devil for a master.

    • Zambia is full of spineless people who pull back at the first sign of defeat. This characteristic alone makes us incapable of being a leading nation in anything.

      We need this. We need people who can challenge the status quo. We need people who can push the envelope. We need people who are courageous to test the elasticity of the law.

      Zambia has always lived on the verge of peace and tribulation. That edge needs to be extended by actions such as this. We need to know who we truly are as a people.

  38. Katele Kalumba is one of those Politicians Zambians had confidence in until his true character of corruption and witchcraft were exposed. Zambians must ignore Katele Kalumba completely. He is WICKED and actually a serious danger to this country.

  39. Zambia is divided to the core, very true. Remember the insults that have been thrown at the Lozis (over Barotseland issue) the Tongas, not only during the campaigns but even before and the government looked the other way. Those that have insulted were left to do so at will, do you really think people cannot react. These are the results unfortunately, this is a reaction of a group of people who feel insulted. Despite Bo Inonge Wina being VP (Kaingu even reminded them of this), Nalolo rejected PF? What does that mean, can they hate their own, or their own has opted to close her eyes to the injustices to her own people. There is no turning back, despite the reconciliatory tone being used now by those who said and did wrong things. UPND, is no longer a political party, but has become a voice…

  40. through people (from Southern, Western, North Western, etc) have to speak. You call it a tribal party (your opinion), but it is not! Check the statistics if you know what that it is! Watch the space! If the judgment on the petition goes the against PF, of course may be unexpected, it will be a wake up call to all.

  42. Was there any controversy in Georgia with respect to 2000 USA elections? I do not remember that. I was in the USA and I am still here.

  43. Who won? The candidates with most MPs won and this is consistent with all credible PVTR. The problem with UPND caders is that they are blind followers exercising dogmatic royalty. To them HH (their leader) and Larry Mweetwa (who did their PVT) are infallible. We call it ICHIMPWENA!

    The same Dr. Kaluba you are insulting today was your darling when he supported HH in the 2015 by election. He is discussing progressive ideas and you respond through character assisnation. This should be a warning to GBM and Nevers.

    All claims by UPND concerning rigging can be summarized in just two words : ‘MA RUBBISH’!

  44. Dear Dr Katele Kalumba, The US election you mention was decided ultimately in the electoral college. The State of Florida (not Georgia) had a razor thin margin – so close that a recount seemed likely. The Florida Supreme Court finally ruled that in the State of Florida ALL the votes will be recounted not just the districts selected by the then outgoing Vice President, Al Gore. Please do your homework. Zambia is in a precarious situation facing it’s version of Watergate. You have boldly proclaimed that “The electoral majority legally voted for Edgar Chagwa Lungu.” but fail to either realize or fail to mention that serious voting improprieties may mean these precious votes were not LEGALLY COUNTED. The credibility of Zambia to the world rests with this court case. God bless Zambia…

  46. @ Loser. some of you people surprise me, why do we forget so soon about certain events? Just because JK did dununa song, you are all over praising the chap. on which side was JK in 2011 elections? wasn’t he on RB’s side mocking Sata at the time? Lets have morals as a people, JK has no morals, if he did, he would be nowhere near PF just like Dora & RB. These are the same chaps who once prophesied that PF would never rule under Sata. Then today when PF is in power, they are enjoying the fruits of the tree they refused to water

  48. Dr katele is a mentor to some of us. When he opens his mouth, we remove the plugs from our ears wanting to hear something sensible being said at least for that moment as he is NOT one who yaps unnecessarily. We thank you.

  49. Stealing votes has become normal to some people commenting here. What if it was the other way around? Don’t be selfish.
