The opposition UPND has moved the filing in of the presidential petition challenging the election of President Edgar Lungu to this Friday and not today as earlier announced.

Former Chongwe Member of Parliament Sylvia Masebo announced that the legal team will file in tomorrow.

Ms. Masebo has also urged party members to come in numbers to the Supreme Court as their legal Team will be filing in a court petition at the Constitutional Court.

She said the party is ready to challenge the outcome of the election and believes that the election was stolen.

Ms. Masebo said the party has overwhelming evidence which they will present before the Constitutional Court.

She said is sad that Zambia is still failing to organise a credible free and fair election 52 years after Independence.

Yesterday, UPND vice president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba said that his party has sufficient evidence to petition the outcome of the elections.

Mr. Mwamba said that the evidence is enough to secure a judgment most Zambians are waiting for as it is actually being supplied by the people who allegedly helped the ruling PF to steal its votes.

He has disclosed at media briefing held last evening that part of this evidence will include the incarceration of some of its members on alleged tramped up non-bailable charges.

Mr. Mwamba said that party members should remain prayerful and calm as the Constitutional Court hears the petition. He said that that was not necessary for anyone to panic as he believes God is on side of the UPND.

Speaking at the same briefing MMD president Nevers Mumba wondered why there was so much security at Mulungushi International Conference Center were elections results were being announced.

Dr. Mumba recalled that it has never happened in Zambia’s history that the returning officer of a presidential election can be protected by armed police officers at the time of announcing the results.

He said that his suspicion is that what happened on Monday this week when President Lungu was being declared winner of the election is a sign of how scared the ruling PF is of what it has allegedly done.

Meanwhile, UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has appealed to his PARTY supporters to be peaceful and loving to each other as God loved everyone.

In his facebook posting, Mr Hichilema said that the party is fully committed to exhaust all channels to ensure that justice is achieved on claiming what belongs to the people of Zambia.

He said that the party leadership hopes to go back to the people to thank them for the massive votes and support they gave to the UPND during the just ended elections.

Mr Hichilema hopes there will be no restrictions on their movements during this undertaking like was the case during the campaign.

    • This HH and the minions is just useless, they did put monitors allover and even chased trucks but when they started smelling loss, then it was rigged. To me it shows ndimwe opwalala. I can guarantee you guys, the court will throw it out

    • Ubupumbu from some quarters. Very docile and un-progressive individuals always willing to accept any dirt even where there is enough evidence. We need credible individuals to be at the driving wheel of this country and not your ECL. There are too many wrongs than rights with your ECL. Wakeup Zambians and fight for your freedom. Fight constitutionally for the future of Zambia and its citizens.

      God bless Zambia

  2. Halibelela Hukulusa kalusa. UPND has been claiming they have surficient evidence since last week. I would not be surprised if part of the evidence are the trucks they were busy chasing or the Ethiopian Airline that was carrying medication at the KKIA.

  3. Good luck UPND as you exercise your constitutional right . But please be mindful that Zambia need to move on now. We have too much fatigue with 3 elections in 5 years. Let us unite as Zambians and work together over the next 5 years before we can start talking about elections. Theres a lot of work ahead of us.

  5. Why are the owners of the UPND not talking and have allowed only disgruntled elements who have hijacked UPND and are prolonging HH’s pain instead of allowing him to heal fast…That evidence will be cross examined so do not get excited that a judgement will be in your favour because you have talked first…

  6. The constitutional court should NOT be manipulated by the cartel, because Zambians are watching and watching very carefully. We all know these rejects and their motives but we aren’t dull.
    If you want to the true picture of a Zambian, try and do anything funny for these evil people. Zambians spoke and spoke loudly as required by law, so watch out. PRESIDENT LUNGU WON AS REQUIRED BY OUR CONSTITUTION BY OVER 50%+1 and anything to try and misinterpret it would be regrettable for many years ti come!
    UK went into the refendum with so much confidence that they will remain in EU, people spoke and the WILL OF THE PEOPLE RESPECTED, SO WHO IS HH AND CARTEL TO TELL US OTHERWISE?

  7. HH has failed to condemn violence. He has failed to retract his earlier instructions to his members to be active and not be docile.
    They have moved the filing to Monday,they have no evidence

  8. This “open parliament whoa! should not set us on a retrogressive path- we are tired of electioneering and are now focused on forging ahead. We know that these futile endorsers are bitter and have come out as the worst losers but please don’t drag us into your filthy mindset games! Its time to move on!

  9. Out of this entire disgrantled group the one who is most annoying from the group is Pastor N. Mumba.
    His asking why the returning officer was given that security. He has forgotten all the negative pronouncements that his cronies where making during the election period. This man has No wisdom at all.
    I would like to urge those cadres that have been invited to behave in an orderly manner. No name calling to beloved president as he has asked as to take into consideration how the upnd supporters are feeling after losing. The other thing is you dont show off when going to court that you have overwhelming evidence because you dont know what the other team has. For now take a chill pill

  11. Let the RULE OF LAW prevail. It is the only civilized way of instilling confidence in the final outcome, AND rebuilding/earning investor confidence and FDI in our Country, which will bring about much-needed job creation for our unemployed youth. Period.

  12. In the first place this shows that they these guys may not have a solid case to talk about so they want to resort to crowds and hooliganism so that there is confusion! For heaven’s sake filing a petition is not another political rally! Rallies ended on 10th August -at least for now. You should just ask that the trial be screened live so that the population can follow! There is no need for crowds! GBM, detaining your violent cadres in Kasama has nothing to do with recounting votes in Lusaka which you are team is taking to the Constitutional court. Nevers,you have been loser who concedes defeat early so you do not know well how elections are announced! There is always security for the chair of ECZ what more this time when UPND has been violent to ECZ through out the preparatory process.

  18. No evidence, if the had, they would not be wasting time. Hh, gbm, nevers mumba, silver masebo are all time wasters, their friends like guy Scott and miles Sampa have moved on coz they know that their petition won’t go anywhere. Lungu is in charge, boys and girls you are fighting a losing battle.

    • Not only Scot and Sampa, even smart and intelligent Hon. Garry Nkhombo has moved on! United Party for United Dundumwezi, please just go to the convention and do an in-house cleansing and rebranding! So in this party there aint men enough with real ”machende” as ”He Himself” would love to call them to stand up to him and say it in his face…”Mwana wati lemesa kutiluzisa, leka tiyeske winango?”…

  19. Why is it that it’s only the mad Pf mafias who are now vocal in Upnd? This simply shows that the original upnd members are peaceful people. Since the commencement of campaign to date all Upnd original have been silenced by these 1mbeciles.
    Another good thing to note is that Pf has undergone a cleansing and everbody can now trust and believe in the NEW Pf regime.
    Petitioning team of lawyers please get your money in advance as you await for an academic exercise next week else you won’t see that money.

    • That’s the problem I have with HH and his mscreants, they like applying ISIL tactics of using human shields. Why ask for a huge turn out, to give an impression that really almost half the population is agrieved?…poor strategies as always, no wonder they keep losing a sign of poor leadership!
      Anyway don’t worry about cadre turn out, the Zambia Police bought new riot gear and can’t wait to put the same to good use!

  21. Upnd has a problem, they won these elections even before the vote was cast, what do you except from them? They told Zambia they will not accept the results if they lose, do you now doubt their actions?

  22. HH knew that he would lose hence he said he won’t accept results, he wants to hold on to his position. I don’t know what is wrong with the UPND top brass, are they so spineless to challenge HH, they are so scared to tell him that he has lost enough. We are expecting someone who will be bold enough and tell HH to step down. PF don’t go to sleep, you should also ask for recount of votes in SP, WP, NWP, you should also go flat out and find evidence of the voting in the three provinces where UPND got high votes. Your rivals prepared for the lose and put this plan in motion from day 1 and manufactured the evidence. Lastly find formidable lawyers.

  23. Mr. Mwamba said that party members should remain prayerful and calm as the Constitutional Court hears the petition. He said that that was not necessary for anyone to panic as he believes God is on side of the UPND.

    Mr. Mwamba, you now know God, where is your financial heavy-weightiness? Am glad atleast you are little bit aware that money cannot buy everything in life. The crazy part of this, is that you have not asked God to show why UPND lost this time around. (lot of factors ,major one being the presence of Mr.Mumba in the party) . Petition its your right but it might fail. Mr. Mumba has a Spiritual bounty on his head. Read Jonah 1vs 1-17). The boat that carried Jonah almost capsized due to massive waves caused by God’s anger towards Jonah. They had to throw him overboard into…

    The boat that carried Jonah almost capsized due to massive waves caused by God’s anger towards Jonah. They had to throw him overboard into the ocean, and swallowed by a whale for the waves to calm down. Mr. Mumba has a bone to chew with God. So pray over that…….

  25. @ Zed, i total agree with you.Great observation. What is happening to UPND is what we call SELF FULFILLED PROPHESY.THE POWER OF THE MIND.YOU THINK POSITIVE AND SEE POSITIVE IN EVERY GOOD AND BAD SITUATION ,YOU RECEIVED A POSITIVE OUTCOME.NEGATIVE ALSO PRODUCES A NEGATIVE OUTCOME. Wise People say NEVER COUNT YOUR EGGS BEFORE THEY HATCH… lessons learnt am sure.

  26. Do not just use the LEFT brain to react to every thing that crosses our path but at times employ the RIGHT side brain and reflect on what is happening in most countries where selfishness is the order of the day. This is the reason why we have so many of the “refugees” posing as business men and women who are daily running away from being used as dummies for the testing of the bomb’s power of destruction. WE DON’T WANT ANYTHING CLOSE TO THAT HERE IN ZAMBIA. So in whatever we do like I have said, lets think over all our thoughts. In short, Analyse!

  27. With or without Evidence God loves Zambia, and he has Chosen a leader for us for the love of Zambia, its is not everyone who has spiritual eyes to see what the devil is trying to do to us in this peaceful Nation but as Children od God let us stand in prayer for our Nation because shonongo naima apasweka…even the time of Jesus Christ a thousand of people where against him him but hevwas still a son of God sent from above to come and die for our sins and he was still sent to the grave but because God had his word for us, he conquered death and rose again. Twakana intulubundi, twakana inpasase, twakana tribalism, twakaka twakana kwakana….we speak peace and harmony over our nation and let God himself take his place and arise for our sake. God’s love has no akapatulula so he has picked a…

  28. People of Zambia, why pattern is just the same, no one can contribute something of value, its all about Lungu, and HH as a Tonga Man. Without a strong opposition that same Lungu you are praising will take our lovely Nation into Zimbabwe. When are you going to wake up. We need UPND, we need people like HH, GBM, NCM. What is wrong to file in a petition. all you can say they lose, they lose, Tongas, Tongas, Twanaka say something that can add value to our political situation in our Country not TONGAS plz twapapata. even the late SATA may his soul rest in peace, complained about rigging, dont you get it its the name of the game ‘Politics’ which was founded on the belief of a ‘lie’ not trusting one another. HH is trying to help improvr the livelihood of the people of Zambia, he is a…

  29. HH though u hate him so much, given opportunity he can try to rescue Zambia, for him accumulating that welthy is not a joke. Like it or not the Guy is smart, rich, intelligent, etc. He can go back to his bussiness and continue with life, but the passion to serve God and people cannot leave him. He choose to join politics, he never consulted you, it is based on his choice, so you like him or you do has nothing to do with his choice. PLZ NAPAPATA DONT USE THIS PLATFORM TO FAN THE DEMONIC SPIRIT OF TRIBALISM, I PRAY FOR YOU READING THIS COMMENT TO BE DELIVERED IN JESUS NAME. DONT TAKE AS BACKWARDS WITH DEMONIC THOUGHTS, WE LOVE BEMBAS EVEN IF THEY HATE US, SIMPLE WE LOOK IN THE LENS OF JESUS. AMEN.
