Losing PF candidate in the Itezhi-Tezhi parliamentary elections Greyford Monde has petitioned his seat in the Lusaka High Court on grounds that the opposition UPND winner Herbert Shabula employed rigging schemes in the just ended elections.

Mr Monde disclosed that he had successfully filed in his petition for the Itezhi-Tezhi seat which was scooped by Mr Shabula, adding that the UPND candidate had employed schemes that rendered the elections unfair.

He explained that most of the ruling party supporters in the constituency did not exercise their voting right because they were afraid of UPND attacks.

Mr Monde said that the elections in Itezhi-Tezhi were not fair and that he had petitioned because he was ready to expose schemes of malpractice the opposition candidate used.
“We have successfully petitioned the parliamentary elections for the Itezhi-Tezhi seat which was won by UPND candidate Herbert Shabula. We petitioned on grounds that UPND had employed schemes which led to the election being unfair.

They beat up our supporters just before and during the voting day. Our members were scared to go out and vote. They stayed away, hence we lost the election. They made sure our agents in polling stations were intimidated, and they had a loophole to rig the elections because there was no one to observe the election,” he said.

Mr Monde further disclosed that he had petitioned the election on grounds that there was undue influence on the voters by the UPND, by way of lies and misleading statements that the ruling party had stolen some votes in the last elections.

He said that the opposition UPND was spreading rumours that Mr Monde was misusing public property.

And Mr Monde also alleged that UPND candidate Shabula had instructed his cadres to beat up PF supporters and that one of the victims was still in Lusaka’s University Teaching Hospital having lost an eye.

  1. UPND was rigging this election in its strongholds. I blame this on Kaponya (HH) the cheap Machiavellian crook from the pits of hell.
    This week we bury this Satamic minion forever as GBM and Nevers take over UPND. Kudos!

    • Monde it is your democratic right to petition the result of your election. Let this UPND cult of massons be exposed for its wickedness as Kaponya (HH) is demolished by the Con Court this week.

    • Look at you Mr dead skull.
      Your already dead but can’t see that PF killed people all across the country for a whole year intimidating voters.
      Your drunken master the unbaptised demon is going to hell to meet Sata.

    • The agony of being a PF kaponya is….

      Even after the elections all they see is HH they try to move on but all they can think of is HH….they try to celebrate their rigged win but all they see is HH…..

    • Abuse of the court process at the best. He is pointing at a spec in his friend’s eye blinded by the log in his own eye.
      He campaigned as a minister using government resources when he was not supposed to. Pay back the tax payers money then you can begin to open your mouth on the unfairness of the campaign.

    • @ Empty skull

      The agony of being a PF kaponya is….
      Not knowing that the High Court jurisdiction does not include electoral petitions

      As to Monde, after 5 years in Parliament and after voting for Act. No. 2 of 2016, you go to wrong Court?
      What a 1mbecile you are. Thanks to God you lost, otherwise your presence in Parliament should be affront to human intelligence.

    • Mwaiche Monde just move on. You lost because of Your party. In Southern province even if Jesus stood against a UPND candidate he cannot win because People vote for the party name and not individual qualities.

    • Monde lost because his former constituents perceived him to be a traitor after he switched camp. Moreover, the fact that he was one of the illegal ministers shall just add to his misery in court.

    • You are fool…..only PF have a democratic right to petition whilst others should just move on. Sink this in your thick skull that everyone has the same rights and do not condemn them when they petition.

    • HH is a big disappointment to many people, both to local and to the international community.

      HH feels that he is the only one entitled to petitions

      Let him wait for the many who will petition. How do you tell you cadres to stop supporters of other parties from going to vote?

    • IT IS ALL PLAIN TO SEE THAT THE BIGGEST RIGGING THROUGH INTIMIDATION AND COERCION TOOK PLACE IN UPND STRONGHOLDS WHERE EVEN WHERE THE PF GOVERNMENT DELIVERED ON MANY PROJECTS ECL GOT PALTRY VOTES.
      THE ABOVE AND PLAIN TRIBALISM.
      THUS UPND ARE WASTING OUR TIME BY EVEN PETITIONING ECL’s WIN

    • How about his friend Richwell did he win… that one who was appointed by Lazy Lungu as Defence Minister whose highest qualification is a certificate in Marketing from Katondo College..really laughable…what an insult to our boys and Generals in uniform. If its not for the cheap discounted beer in Barracks they would have overthrown Lazy Lungu.

  2. There’s no mention that he reported the matter to the police, the way the police likes PF, they would’ve defended this guy.

    He knows that he won’t be able to loot from government like other elected MPs that’s why he’s petitioning the election. Dishonest soul!

    • Mwanawasa was the one who brought this practice of appointing ministers from the opposition party and Tongas felt that it was fine. But when other presidents do the same you cry foul. You tribalists. Mwanawasa was the worst dictator and haater. All he did was to promote Lambas, Lenjes, Tongas whilst bringing Bembas down. But he couldn’t manage anyway

  3. Karma ulimbwa sana,your still in the dream of hh being presido?wakeup man&face reality!Viva Mighty Patriotic Front

  4. Bo Grey please be magnanimous in defeat. Shabula would have beaten anyone even as an independent candidate. It’s Shabula’s personality and exposure in the media just like Mwansa Kapeya that got him the rural vote. Go back to the drawing board and prepare for 2021 not through rehearsal of Dununa but by continuing linking with the locals and any projects you may have initiated.

  5. Good!! Infact o seats in tongaland must b petitioned. O of them. Livingstone has owez been PF, how did they rig? O of them including northerstern. Fyonse! Petion!!!!

    • AND WHY – BECAUSE PEOPLE IN THE SOUTHERN PROVINCE CHOSE TO HAVE A BETTER LIVE AND NOW YOU CALL IT RIGGING !!! THE PEOPLE CHOSE UPND BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THEY WILL IMPROVE THEIR LIFES / IMPROVE AGRICULTURE AND CREATE JOBS !

  6. These grounds look very light to win a petition unless they are more heavily substantiated. One of the key ones would be to prove that Monde’s polling agents were chased away from polling stations or were coerced to agree to something they should not have. And then also let him prove with evidence from Police that his supporters were beaten by identified cadres and that the statements referring to him that he abused resources were true! Then he can stand a chance to have the election over turned. It is very sad that a person can lose an eye for mere political competition of ideas!!

    • @7.1 ConCourt, you could be right! I also thought may be issues of election petitions were to be heard by the constitutional Court but then some one had earlier said matters related to electoral procedures and process rather than breach of the constitution itself are supposed to be heard by the High Court. I wouldn’t be surprised if his case is thrown out by the High Court and advise him to seek justice in the Concourt. Our Lawyers sometimes are just amazing even when they know the case cannot be won and the procedure used is wrong they still go ahead just to make money!

    • Bwafya, read the law, petitions for Parliamentary seats go to High Court please only Presidential petitions are reserved for ConCourt.BB

  7. Abuse of the court process at the best. He is pointing at a spec in his friend’s eye blinded by the log in his own eye.
    He campaigned as a minister using government resources when he was not supposed to. Pay back the tax payers money then you can begin to open your mouth on the unfairness of the campaign.

  8. What this dude has done is to start a sunami of petitions for all losers whether PF or UPND. PF ministers abused government resources and some lost the elections while others won. Zambia will become one ‘very big court’ for petitions. My question is ‘ How will the courts cope?’

  9. My advise is for you to channel the money you have set aside to pay lawyers to paying back money you illegally obtained when you were posing as a minister

  10. Hahahaha this is very funny! is this type of leaders we have? No substance in this case, waste of public resources.

  11. Ka Greyford you thought you were smart..mr deputy minister….you will now feel the pinch plus payback the three months pay and allowances you empty tins stole.

  12. I hope the concourt will not even waste time on this traitor. You betrayed your party and your people. So what did you expect? A humiliating loss is what you deserved.

  13. UPND LOYALIST SPEAKS OUT ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE ON UPND
    UPND loyalist Emmanuel Chilekwa says he has never come across such an incompetent group of “intellectuals” who fail to reason or read or simply understand their act, like the UPND.
    And Mr Chilekwa has described the UPND as a bunch of jokers on the loose.
    According to his facebook posting, Mr Chilekwa wondered how the UPND could start submitting fresh evidence as if they never read the Constitution that they were supposed to submit their grounds and evidence within the 7 days following the declaration of president-elect, Edgar Chagwa Lungu.
    “The whole of the UPND team cannot even match one Julius Malema of the EFF in South Africa. These guys are bereft of any intellect. I agree with its Vice President for Politics, Dr Canisius…

    • Chilekwa is not a UPND loyalist. Chilekwa was fired by Chagwa after last year’s elections when he went around obtaining money by false pretense as “friends of Chagwa”. After that he tried to join UPND but he was snubbed because of his thieving character. How can he today be a UPND loyalist? Chilekwa is a common conman with no political clout

  14. I agree with its Vice President for Politics, Dr Canisius Banda, who once said that the UPND bunch may be schooled, but are surely not intelligent.
    “Because they are not intelligent, that is why the defence lawyers argued the Petitioners’ flimsy grounds, compelling the Constitutional Court to throw out 53 of their 80 laid down grounds on Thursday. That means, the UPND lost 66% of its case. Which student can pass on 34% in the final exam, if any?” he asked.
    Mr Chilekwa said the acts of UPND demonstrated why the people of Zambia had always been right not to put the UPND in government, because they have never been ready in their 18 year of existence.
    Meanwhile, Mr Chilekwa said the UPND was basically accusing itself.
    “When I say the UPND acts before they think, this is what I meant. They…

  15. “When I say the UPND acts before they think, this is what I meant. They are making ridiculous demands on the security of the ballots, and yet, it is them, who endangered the results and security of ballots,” he said.
    Mr Chilekwa said the UPND had among its six demands in the Constitutional Court, some of which had already been thrown out, asked the Court to have ballots in custody of the court.
    “For what I know, it is the UPND that poses a risk to the ballots and not the PF. The UPND has been caught red-handed,” he said.
    Mr Chilekwa said the the case of Obvious Mwaliteta, caught red-handed after a failed daylight robbery of ballots was a case in point.
    “The UPND are the ones who in the first place, are to blame because they have been caught attempting to rob the Electoral Commission…

    • “The UPND are the ones who in the first place, are to blame because they have been caught attempting to rob the Electoral Commission of Zambia.
      “The court should surely throw out their request until they first challenge and defend themselves over Mwaliteta’s robbery case,” he said.

  16. Stupidity is now order of the day on these defectors just accept defeat and prepare for the worst next time.when you defected you thought you could take along with you majority upnd members ? Ithezi thezi is a upnd stronghold and there is nothing you can do about please do not worst taxpayers moneys on this one[we cannot be having by elections on defectors !

  17. SHUT UP YOU MORON – PF WON ELECTIONS THROUGH MALPRACTICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    EMMANUEL CHILEKWA ARE YOU STUPID OR WHAT THEY UPND PETITIONED IMMIDIATELY YOUR ILLITERATE IMBECILE….WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA…FAILED STATE / FAILED NATION.

  18. @SAULOSI
    Let me give you some free lesson. ITEZHI TEZHI is NOT in Southern Province, it’s in CENTRAL Province.

  19. MONDE YOU HAVE INDEED TOLD THE NATION THAT PF STOLE UPND VOTES. HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS THEFT OF VOTES. JUST KEEP QUIET.

  20. Peoples of this good country called Zambia I heard on news just now that 29 MP petitions have been lodged successfully but it was not detailed which MP has been petitioned. Anybody with the full details? Its Lawyers time indeed

  21. Lawyers!!! Eat has much as u can…..but in the end make sure u throw out all these stupid petitions.
    What kind of a party is this? A party with full of people ,who hate even the development that has been taken to their door steps? Destroying a clinic,school, police post, burning tires in our expensive roads ? destroying infrastructure that has been put up to help them and there families? Beating up people suspected to have give the mighty PF a few votes?. Say NO to VIOLENCE and UPND.
    Wake up Zambia don’t live in the parable of the boiled frog.
    Peace.

  22. WELCOME TO THE END OF YOUR POLITICAL CAREER YOUNG MAN. UNFORTUNATE POLITICS IS A LAST CAREER, NO PERSON WILL WANT TO EMPLOYEE AFTER THAT. U PULLED THE WRONG SHORT BOY. U AND SIAMUNENE ARE HISTORY. TO EVERYONE, LETS LEARN TO BE GOOD ON OUR WAY UP COZ WE NEED THEM ON OUR WAY DAY

  23. WHERE DOES THIS NONSENSE OF CALLING EVERYONE WHO IS SUCCESSFUL A SATANIST COMING FROM? DONGOTE COMES, WE ACCEPT HIM AS A NORMAL MILLIONAIRE. OUR OWN PEOPLE WHO HAVE WORKED HARD ARE SATANISTS. LETS LEARN TO APPRECIATE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN DISCIPLINED IN THE MANAGEMENT OF THEIR RESOURCES & HAVE BECOME RICH. THE SAME MONEY YOU WASTE ON USELESS THINGS, OTHERS INVEST. THEY BECOME RICH, U CALL THEM SATANISTS. THIS KIND OF REASONING IS RETROGRESSIVE

  24. Monde and Siamunene being traitors will never win those seats again even if they re-contested 100 times. Infact they are even legally disqualified to recontest since they campaigned using govt resources when they masqueraded as ministers intimidating people na tuma flags on their vehicles as misled by their forged president.
