Patriotic Front (PF) Chikankata Parliamentary aspirant Kavwumbu Hakachima attributes her loss to a lie disseminated by the United Party for National Development (UPND) to the electorate a day before polls that she had been arrested with possession of pre-marked ballot papers, reports Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde.

In a statement, Ms. Hakachima said a day before elections she was in Mazabuka till 18:30 hours and received a UPND fake message to all wards that the PF candidate was in police custody after being found with pre-marked ballot papers.

Ms. Hakachima, formerly Chikankata District Commissioner said many of her supporters did not vote because they were in a panic mood, with many demanding to see her physically in police cells.
She noted that the electorates were confused as they were told that she was just released on police bond.

Ms. Hakachima has however stated that there is a reason why it happened like that and such she will not petition the liars, opting to be vindicated by political posterity.

“Let me comment about chikankata friends. Firstly let me say sorry we lost it. A day before elections I went to Mazabuka up to 18.30 hours. Then UPND sent message to all wards that candidate Kavwumbu had been arrested after being found with papers already marked”

“When I came back I found news that I was in custody. We couldn’t get help from chikankata radio to tell people that this was propaganda. At 05hrs my supporters panicked asking why i got arrested and I said am not in custody”

“So people started demanding to see me physically to prove I was not in cells. Then I quickly started going to polling stations to show myself. When I got there, again I found a mob of UPND who chased me from polling stations claiming I was a thief who had stolen votes”

“Thus how we lost on 11th August, 2016. People could not vote for me and I could not manage to go to all polling stations to vindicate myself. Finally allow me to say…friends there is a reason why it happened this way…am still in a shock how I got treated as a criminal by UPND” she said

  1. It is no secret that UPND used intimidation to gather votes in Southern Province but they still lost. Evidently, everyone voted on tribal grounds. You were a few tribes short.

  3. @ LUSALU; You are absolutely right. ECL got more votes this time in Southern Province compared to last year’s presidential bye election. More over one of the Chiefs in Southern Province urged people to join a party of their choice if they were fade up of one political party. I REALLY SALUTE THIS chief!

  4. UPND lost elections because of the character of its leaders HH and GBM. volatile, violent and vindictive.

    Who in their sane minds would vote for such? Just like Kambwili as well.

  8. The southern Vote was a fake one which needs petitioning. Please PF look into the fake southern vote. We hear that Voter-turn out was average than what the fake results show. Please petition the southern vote so that we know exactly what happened.

  9. I hope PF will not put that chap Simbiyakula as their head lawyer for the petition, I have no faith in this man who missed the deadline for nominations of MP, missed the plane going to Dubai to witness the printing of ballot papers, he will mess up things. If anything, ECL should get rid of him.

  11. I salute you for being a patriotic Zambian. Surely both camps may have suffered casualties on their way to victory or defeat and to continue fighting may not be in the best interest of the nation and the parties we aspire for. The best way is to go back to the drawing board and re-strategise for next election or other opportunities. The reason why we win or lose is our strategy and whatever our opponents capitalise or fail to caapitalise on is our strategies. Both victors and losers and their supporters alike, need to start working on their new strategies to serve mother Zambia and their own interests to put bread and butter on tables.
