The opposition UPND has revealed that it will only file in the presidential election challenging President Edgar Lungu’s victory to Monday next week.

The UPND legal team initially intended to file in the petition a day after President Lungu was declared but later moved it to Thursday before pushing it to tomorrow, Friday.

But UPND legal Adviser Jackie Mwiimbu confirmed in an interview that the party has instead decided to move the filing in to Monday next week.

Mr Mwiimbu said the move was necessitated by the overwhelming amount of evidence of alleged election malpractices that the party has continued to receive.

He said a lot of individuals and organisations have been coming forward to bring evidence to the legal team to further strengthen their case.

Mr Mwiimbu said the UPND is confident that President Lungu’s victory will be over turned based on the evidence to be presented before the constitutional court.

Meanwhile, Veteran retired politician Vernon Mwaanga has said that it is wishful thinking for anyone to say that this year’s general election was free and fair when opposition political parties were denied coverage by the State media.

Mr. Mwaanga said that of all the Elections that he has witnessed, this year’s elections were the worst one owing to the number of challenges the Electoral Commission of Zambia faced.

He has cited the issues of the G12 form, the application of the Public Order Act during campaigns and several irregularities as some of the things that stop the elections from being free and fair.

Mr. Mwaanga stated that it would be an extravagant exaggeration for him to describe the recent elections as free and fair.

    • BUT WHY TELL THE PUBLIC ABOUT THE “OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE”? THE PUBLIC HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT “EVIDENCE”. JUST QUIETLY TAKE IT TO THE ConCOURT. THE PUBLIC HAS ALREADY MOVED ON, THEY WANT TO MOVE ON ON THIS ONE TOO. I THINK UPND IS TIRING TO THE PUBLIC EVER SINCE HH TOOK OVER. CAN’T WE HERE SOMETHING ELSE THAT SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN FROM SAME UPND PARTY.

    • The idea is to disrupt the inauguration of ECL and embarrass GRZ. UPND is a bunch of spoilers. And VJ is bitter because his rigging scheme in UPND strongholds was overrun by the massive vote that ECL had received.

    • HH you are alone in this funeral. Prolong it the West African Funeral way at your own misery. Soon you will realize the cost of emotions, arrogance, utopia, and ego of this hollow hoax. You will have no one to massage your ego. Masebo is a crosstitute, GBV is a retarded coward, Depak a reject of the Indian Caste system, Nevers a hopeless opportunitistic frequent flyer by night. Move on and limit this whole self anihilation exercise.

    • This is a dangerous gamble UPND are taking. Things done at the last minute tend to fail. Who will they find at ConCourt on Inauguration day? It is either they want to file or they don’t. What will happen is that the inauguration will just start early and it will be declared a public holiday. The so called petition will then be filed on Tuesday, which will be considered after the 7 day requirement.

    • Patience pays and doing things immaculately is what counts. Quality not speed is needed. The Constitution provides for 7 days, then please take your time and exhaust the maximum time in putting an airtight petition in place. We need to the sure that ECL was duly elected. We do not want a cloud of treachery and illusiveness to hang over his presidency for life. Let him be cleared and the hearts of many be at peace with him. I want to call him my president not the illegal president who stole the votes. Let him be vindicated. Let Lungu be proven truly elected by the will of the people not by the will of Kaizer, Mwamba, RB, and other moppet dancers. Is Lungu a puppet? Who is pulling his strings? Or is he a wolf in sheep clothing?

    • Indeed you are treading on thin ice how do you expect a ECL to lose after winning in 6 provinces and if you are banking on the Con Court you have another thing coming because now people have seen the voting pattern and they will vote in numbers such that your HH will lose even the little votes he managed. This petition may just back fire after what happened in southern province with PF agents. VJ is a bitter old man who wants to participate in every government.

    • @Obakeng.

      The scales were equally stacked.

      PF won Northen, Luapula, Muchinga and Eastern.

      UPND won Western, Southern, Central and North Western.

      The contest is on the results for the neutral provinces: Lusaka and Copperbelt.

      Hence the petition.

      Was there a free a fair election with PF violence, media black out, denial of.permits and Lungu helicopter at UPND Chawama rally, breaking of bus in Mutendere?

    • You are right Mwense. These guys lost and there is plenty of evidence everywhere including their so called strongholds such as Lundazi where 29,000 vote. But Lungu had 29,000 HH had 4,000 and others had vote too. Is this not rigging?

    • Makasa – I am just thinking: The Govt is inviting foreign dignitaries for the inauguration on Tuesday. And then UPND decides to file the Petition to stop the inauguration on Monday. Then the Govt has to notify all invited Heads of State on Monday (may be late afternoon) that the Ceremony that they were invited for that was scheduled for the following day has been cancelled!!! Is this statesman behavior, and do these people understand the implications of such a situation.

  8. Lungu can never give up power even if found guilty.
    Votes were stolen by lungu. The southerners are rioting.

    If lungu is found guilty that will unleash PF riots in PF strong holds.

    You see lungu what tragic chain of events stealing votes can take.

    ECZ and PF will be responsible for the destruction of the country.

      As i have said time and time again that upcd are liars and attention seekers who beleives their lies.
      For now PF has been vindicated. The levels of an lawlessness is alarming and the upnd supreme leader is quite and enjoying seeing people hurting themselves.

      Nothing to worry. If Lungu won the contest on a free and fair platform; his election will be confirmed.

      The burden of proof, on a balance of probabilities lies with the Petitioners. The law is settled and precedents abound. Their failure to adduce sufficient and cogent evidence will be to the benefit of the Respondent.

      Let Constitutional jurisprudence unfold!

  9. We now think that there is a huge debate within UPND on whether this is even a useful exercise for them or it may just damage them further! Evidence in such cases is very difficult to collaborate because there are registers and serial numbers of electoral votes to match with,polling certificates and tabulation tables. We just hope you are not receiving hear say information which may fail to pass the critical test of evidence in the Constitutional Court! You can have a lot of evidence which may not be admitted in court like e.g. ballots found in the bush near ZAF, a lid of polling box found somewhere etc.. You chased trucks, found nothing,now you want a recount and Nawakwi will also ask for a recount. Remember Monday is your last day so don’t be late deliberately ,then say courts have…

    • @Bwafyaa couldn’t agree more. One curious thing is the lack of video footage for evidence. And I say this because in this day and age every Jim and jane has a cell phone that can at least take pictures. If they had found ballots near a bush wouldn’t they have recorded that? We would already have seen these on social media. Much do about nothing. Hope Lungu doesn’t accommodate hakainde by giving him a position that would piss most Zambians off

  10. The realistic scenario that will be played out on Tuesday is the inauguration of ECL.
    So it just beggars belief that these so called learned people, 14 for that matter, will overturn the foregone conclusion that ECL has embarked on 5 year tenure to rule, by the people, for the people. Isn’t it, you are considered mad when you refuse to reconcile with the truth, even when you know uza Halusa Hagai.

    • Typical of UPND cadres, specialising in hear say, lies, wishful thinking etc. This is what has misled them in all elections. Listening to what is good to the ear and nor to reason or logic. That is why even the petition will not hold because it be based on very poor evidence. UPND is likely to be embarrassed by their petition.

  14. These actions are irresponsible and prove HH is not Presidential material. He cares more for his ambitions than the Cost to Zambia at these tough times for Zambia.

    We can’t afford re-runs at thus time when we ought to tighten up. It’s a wise Opposition Leader who accepts defeat if the number of Members of Parliament seats will mean little power to pass its programmes.

    0
    • Why tightening when Lungu said he had improved and developed the economy?

      Lungu secured votes on the platform that the economy would be better for all than previously and that prices would fall including fuel and electricity.

      I urge UPND to petition all the way and test the veracity of this alleged victory.

      That is the way to proceed in a democracy. Wins must not be secured by sharp practices.

      This petition will define what a free and fair election is. I want to know whether beating opponents is part of the package?

  16. Zambia is no longer a Christian nation. Too much tribalism, hatred among ourselves, finger pointing, insults and we call Zambia a Christian Nation I doubt. We don’t love each other at all. If a person hails from a tribe they don’t like to be leader, it is a problem but pretend as if they are not tribalist. All people of Zambia are tribalist.

    • Mateo, Zambia is still a Christian nation. No works of the devil will take away this fact. true believer are busy standing in gap in prayers. Being a Christian or a christian nation does not mean being a perfect person or individual, but we need to trust in the Lord and His power over our lives.

      The issue of tribalism was started by UPND from the time they declared that only a Tonga can lead the party. this triggered the tribal talk. So, even if our friends, the Tongas feel like they are being attacked, they should understand that it is the UNPD and HH who put them in this situation. HH and UPND never renounced their declaration making this problem grow into a monster. It is like someone saying he smell a fart and blaming others but forgeting that he is the source.

Looking at objectivity, I feel you as our future president of Zambia which I know you will be, should stop all this issue of petitions in the best interest of the mothers and children of this country. I feel you will be more honorable by putting the country first above individuals who want to benefit through you Sir. Let it go without any bitterness my beloved brother. BUT do not stop as you remain our hope for the future. Show your selfless leadership and allow the inauguration to take place. This will be the only way peace will prevail.

No, he will be forgotten on history, buried on an unmarked geave in Dundimwezi. Jack Mwiimbu? No, not such an asre licker. Gary Nkombo?

If you heard PF clearly they said some of the things UPND did in the quest to win this election boarders on treason and they know that. So to me this delay is for them to file in an incomplete petition which the courts will throw out and they will have no time to refile because they only have upto 12:30hrs on Monday to do this. Hence they will tell there supporters that we filed in and Edgar Lungu has influenced the concourt so they have thrown our petition away. They have no evidence what they claim to be evidence was even happening more in southern province e.g chasing away PF monitors, a footage where UPND were shown inspecting each…

  48. People should listen to the Chulu Video footage on Lundazi Central Election Results. The election results announced in the Video and those now appearing on the ECZ Website are different which means Chulu was cooking figures to declare Lungu the Winner. The results announced by Chulu are therefore fake and the announcement of a Winner erroneous. PF bloggers should watch the Video and embarass themselves.

    • So what? We don’t get anything from these guys you have mentioned. Can Kabila give you a loan if you asked him so? If anything most of these people you are mentioning have benefitted more at the expense of we Zambians.

  53. Ba Tata mwatikama ichinso nge ndoshi ya ku Luapula kwaputa. And you Mwaanga whatever you call yourself, how many elections have you rigged before. You are not even suppose to talk about rigging because you are an international election rigger even the guy that entered the server room at ECZ used to be your junior at the University you went to learn how to rig an election. Aaahh guys tiyeni twikale tondolo baleteka ba ECL. When we prayed, we had two signs that the Lord had answered and you think you can win, you satanists.

  54. People of Zambia. The Game is over, 2021 will be our next game, as for now, ECO is President Elect. Come Tuesday, ECL is The Republican President.

    The delay in petitioning is a way to win sympathy, 7 out of 10 provinces is evident enough that OF has won by the majority.

    As for now, let’s focus on a United Zambia, peace loving country, One Zambia One Nation.

  55. Zambia!I agree with Kasama.HH, let it go for sake of peace.Remember Sata and what he did when Lusaka started rioting over election result before the 2011 tripartite?That`s what makes a leader get more respect even from those persecuting him.In my opinion,while you are still working on the petition,Challenge Lungu to a nation wide campaign for peace and anti tribalism remarks.Prove to Zambians that you are against any form of segregation.Mr.Lungu has a lot of time to either make or brake his name for the next five years.Watch the space!Zambians,this fighting and insulting wont get us anywhere apart from destroying this wonderful nation for the future generation.Lets think about the agriculture and industries that we need to develop and lower the poverty levels.At the end of the day it is…

    • I disagree. HH, the moment you leave petition, that’s the moment you shall be impeached from UPND leadership.

      This petition is meant to define what a free and fair election is in the eyes of the law and for future conduct of elections.

      If the Constitutional Court will rule that a political party can beat and prevent opponents from campaigns, then forget about ever voting as long as PF is in power. If nothing is done, 2021 will be worse as PF will brutalise everyone into submission.

  56. Whatever the plan is, it will not yield any fruits. Why wait for Monday when you can set the ball rolling just now? These chaps have no data and are failing to stomach their loss. Monday will come and it will be another lame excuse. Don’t leave your supporters hanging, bring forth that evidence you have and lets get things done.

  60. Ba Marie Anne. Are you in Zambia Peter Mutharikha and Jakaya Kikwete congratulated Lungu. What PAPH has written has made a lot of sense. Edgar should be given 5 more years to either prove himself or mess his party up. Pertitioning the elections will be a waste of time. These are the wise words people are suppose to be writing on Lusaka times and not insults
    The problem with HH is that he don’t know how to gain the political mileage. No wonder I have been insisting that he is still RAW in politics. All he needs to do is to calm his supporters, sing on ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION, providing checks and balances and most importantly go back to the drawing

AND WHEN THE PETIION IS THROWN OUT HH WILL BE A LOSER TWICE PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF FROM FURTHER EMBARRASSMENT JUST CONCEDE DEFEAT AND REMAIN WITH LITTLE DIGNITY

  64. Does this petition really hold water. It is continuously differed. Free consultancy
    1. There is NO Court in Africa which will turn an elected President.
    2. The Con Court will acknowledge the challenges and still validate the results.
    3. Evidence should be convincing NOT speculation like someone voted 6 times.
    4. Are they going to bring the evidence against themselves as well. Like chasing other monitors and parties in the south. Beating of FDD candidate (MATTER IN COURT AND THE CHAP MIGHT BE JAILED)

  65. It has taken long to file the petition because they are busy trying to manufacture evidence to try to make a water tight case. The problem with manufactured evidence it is always porous and wont stand the test. Its better to move on than be acrimonious.

  67. Let the law prevail, if you are innocent don’t panic unless you know what you have cooked with ECZ. Remember nothing can be hidden from the eyes of the Lord, whatever is done in darkness will surely come to light. Man’s plans are not God’s plan.

    • Unforyunately, HH does not honour God but masonism. That is why he fears national prayers. True, God is supreme! Those who claim to live in Him must walk like Jesus did. Does HH and GBM action and insults indicate this? I say NO! HH bought his way into eldership in SAD for political reasons. This is not disputed by the Church he claims to belong to. Ask the general membership, they do not know how and when he was ordained into this ministry.

      The Bible teaches clearly that we should not mention the name of Lord in vain, in other words abuse it for our own political reasons. God may judge those who do so harshly. Our is a fair God. He looks at the quality of the heart, a repentant heart and not he amount of wealth. The haughty shall be brought down and the humble uplifted. The Word of…
