FDD Presidential Candidate Edith Nawakwi
FDD Presidential Candidate Edith Nawakwi
FDD President Edith Nawakwi has demanded for the immediate disbandment of the country’s electoral board saying the ECZ has failed to run election in the country.

And Ms Nawakwi has called on politicians to put their selfish interests aside as the country is bigger than any politician or political party in the country.

Speaking at a media briefing the FDD President said the current political standoff was due to the ineptitude of the the ECZ saying due to the stubbornness and incompetence of the ECZ,today Zambia has no government.

She said all Commissioners should step and pave way for new people who can run the ECZ in a professional and efficient manner.

She said the current ECZ has failed to do its job of ensuring that elections are held in a free, credible and transparent manner.

She described the elections process as flawed and that the voters register was compromised as it had too many errors and that it was belatedly distributed to stakeholders who had no time to audit it.

She added that with the current leadership at ECZ as well as the existing electoral laws and regulations which she said are ignored with impunity, it is wishful thinking that Zambia will have free,fair, credible elections no matter the outcome of the presidential petition.

And Ms Nawakwi has called on the constitution Court to expedite the matter so that people can resume their normal lives.

Ms Nawakwi who expressed disgust at the laiserfaire attitude of people handling the case saying their are just interested in making money and are not interested in the lives being affected by standoff.

“While we fully appreciate the constitutional right of every citizen to seek legal redress when they are aggrieved,we appeal that national interest must prevail over personal ambitions. Zambia is bigger than any one of us politicians. In fact, Zambia is bigger than any political party,” she said.

She added that even if the elections were nullified it was a fallacy to expect a different result with the same referee (ECZ) officiating in the elections.

She described Easu Chulu as Diramba (a referee from Garbon who officiated in a game between Zambia and Morocco) who cannot be trusted to hold a free and fair as well as credible elections.

  1. Wise words mama. Let the court work on this cases fast so that we can form Government and progress. These issues can be sorted out later including the firing of ECZ officials.

    • She is right
      DISBAND ECZ

      Make the result null and void

      Disqualify Lungu for being drunkard and having a Malawian Mother

      If Kaunda was barred in 1996 , how again does Lungu qualify

    • “While we fully appreciate the constitutional right of every citizen to seek legal redress when they are aggrieved,we appeal that national interest must prevail over personal ambitions. Zambia is bigger than any one of us politicians. In fact, Zambia is bigger than any political party,” she said. Clearly this is aimed at HH. So Mushota agree that she’s also right on that point!

    • Disbanding ECZ is not the solution the role of the body is important. Going by Nawakwi’s idea what happens when the judiciary favours the ruling party? When the police are heavily baised? When the constitutional court is baised or indeed parliament is compromised? Disbanded all institutions?
      The problem is a poor leader who has poor advisers and poor ministers who all in turn make poor decisions. That’s what we need to deal with the question is how do we do it?
      All these problems come from state house!

    • Mama seriously even if Diramba was on your side do you think you could have won the election, let us be factual we know ECZ is not perfect but stop politicking that is the problem but ZED everything is politics even good businessmen want to be politicians including pastors please spare us.

    • First on the agenda for the lawmakers should be to streamline the law to prevent unnecessary incessant petitions of the Hichilema type and restrict ConCourt’s entertainment of unreasonable time wasting arguments.

      Our Nation has lost a lot of money while they tolerate arguments like, 14 day periods which, High School kids are taught in civics.

    • Disbanding ECZ cannot not improve thosr results which Edith Nawakwi got.

      She says ECZ is unprofessional but does not link ECZ to any issue at all.

      There is a very high risk in shaking hands with Mushipe. May be she did, and maybe that is why she is now capable of screaning even when there is nothing.

      Conclusion: there is nothing an electoral body, whether the current ECZ or new one, can do to improve Nawakwi’s performance.

      She has to do the work herself.

    At this rate you risk becoming like perpetual loser Kalusa Hap Hazard Kaponya (HH).

  4. Edgar Lungu and his former ministers should be jailed for stealing from Zambians when parliament was dissolved in May 2016. Zambia has three organs of the govt; executive, judiciary and legislature. Lungu do not understand the separation of powers of the govt. How can he be a judge, president and the enfocer of laws? Their bank accounts and all their assets must be frozen forthwith. Zambia was run like a small kantemba.

    • Madam Nawakwi please make up your mind what you are campaigning for. You want ecz disbanded because, as you claim, the 11 August 11 elections were flawed, but in the same breathe you are asking UPND (obviously) to abandon the legal recourse (or in Kalusha-speak “regal lecourse”) because Zambia is bigger than all of us?? What are you saying Madam Nawakwi?? That if somebody robs me I should not go to court because my neighbourhood is bigger than me? Why this hatred for fellow opposition parties? No wonder they say you are PF madam.

    • @Ndate I agree with you entirely. Nawakwi cannot make any political statement without attacking HH. Why does she hate HH with Such passion? HH and his partners are suing on behalf of the 1.7m not sure exactly who voted for change so who is Nawakwi to deny them the Right? Very disgusting veiled political talk. She’s just trying to cover up the embarrassment her running mate has caused her.

  6. Yes a lot needs to be done where elections are concerned in Zambia. The paper trail way of voting is an outdated system of voting. Larger democracies like India have gone electronic voting. Botswana next door are contemplating the same. Why keep a voters role where people were registered five years ago and have since re-located to other areas. Why can’t people be allowed to vote anywhere where voting time will find them? No wonder many from the voters role did not vote. We need a system where everybody with an N.R.C. is allowed to vote as long as the data base is nonprofessionaly compiled to the satisfaction of all stakeholders. Banks are a good example. I can draw my money anywhere any time as long as i have a visa card. Why can’t we learn and adopt the same technological…

  7. That ECZ failed to deliver to Zambians a free,fair,credible and transparent elections is a fact. ECZ colluded with PF to rig the elections infavour of Lungu and PF. This is a perception that is widely held by most Zambians. To pacify Zambians ECZ needs to openly justify how they declared Lungu the Winner given many documented malpractices and irregularities. We stood in long queues for hours only to have our votes and voices stolen. What is most annoying is that ECZ, instead of protecting our votes Chulu,ECZ Commissioners and Senior Managers actually facilitated the vote theft. Heads must roll at ECZ. The fish rots from the Head downwards. Essau Chulu, Isaac, Kasaro,Akufuna and all ECZ Commissioners must be sacked for this ineptitude and criminal behavior.

  9. Most of it is ok but anything run by a human being cannot have no flaws otherwise that would be cheating. Even Trump is already saying the USA election will be rigged. Whoever will be there will always be accused by the losers. Come to think of it Edith’s party has been losing elections since 2001 handled by the ECZ and won by four different presidents.

  10. Yes its the same ECZ that refused to accept nominations for MPs for FDD after the designated closing time as they were still looking for supporters and Judge Lungu refused to allow you to file out of time hence the out best…However the question on the table is how do we get the right persons to run ECZ? That’s the elephant on the table

Today is when u want to talk ill about a respectable body like ECZ? ECZ has presided over elections were there has been a change in Govt. Just bcoz u got 5,000 votes u want to blame ECZ? U r just not popular. U lost. Same as the kachema losers making unnecessary noises. But EL is a democrat. He has allowed the courts to attend to yo noises & nonsenses. When o this rub.bish is over we r not going to tolerate yo useleness.

  13. When Esau Chulu, who is RB’s first cousin, was appointed ECZ Chair, it was clear what game was gonna be. ‘CHAVULA’ has not been charged & was released & paid taxpayers money and gone back to Uganda as we speak.

    By the way, all Chulu’s I’ve personally known are originally from Malawi. That brings back the story about RB’s Malawian roots.

Its you ,HH,GBM , Never who should move on. Stop holding to ransom the respected institutions of peaceful Zambian Democracy that have delivered credible.

  23. Madam Nawakwi. Your OBSERVATIONS/COMPLAINTS are WELL NOTE BUT its NOT VERY CLEAR what your stance is! Do you support the petition or not? May you needed to BE MORE DECISIVE by saying WE NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON REFORMING ECZ and ELECTORAL LAWS rather THAN REMAIN FIXATED ON THE PETITION.Some of the questions you have raised mirror some of our thoughts;if a re-run is ordered or the entire election is nullified who WOULD ORGANIZE A NEW VOTE?IS IT not THE SAME ECZ that would have been dragged in the mud? If that is the scenario are we not likely to see perpetual petitions as losers of the re-run could also launch another petition citing the failures observed in ECZ earlier on? YES let us REFORM and MODERNIZE ECZ!!

  24. Are the ECZ Commissioners so docile that they were not able to persuade their Chairman to do the right thing knowing they would be held to account? Chulu, ECZ Commissioners and Senior Managers were said to have been given immunity from prosecution so they stole the elections with impunity. Besides they were nicely paid for services rendered. The Lungu,RB and Chulu connection stole the vote. The rigging was massive but careless to some extent as we will find out from the Councourt hearings. Essau Chulu as a Judge surely should have seen this comming. Now he and fellow Commissioners are thoroughly discredited and in spite of their immunity privileges they could still be prosecuted for these criminal activities at ECZ. The chickens have come home to roost!!

Had it not been for ECZ and its team’s maturity, you would be dragged to Court to explain your careless talk. From your careless talk , one can see that there was not even a single legal advise or consultation. And how on earth can we entrust with anything. At least HH still have the respect of the clan who voted for him en masse. But for you, No Not even your own father. Yes we heard it from own mouth!!!

We are in this position because of poor leadership and lack of good governance.

    Why are we condoning this type of behavior from our politicians, it appears political prostitution has become a norm in Zambian Politics, which is wrong.

  39. With all due respect bloggers, lets try to look at the issue at hand.

    Firstly, Nawakwi is not saying she won the elections but she is trying to express her observation of what transpired. Secondly, she was much closer to the election process than any of you bloggers would ever be. So her opinion is a lot more authoritative than yours. Let’s for once get rid of this cadre mentality and use our brains. It may be her mere opinion but if you collect opinions of others both for and against her argument then you can conclude what is true and accurate.

    But alas the ignorance and shear lack of analytical skills is quite frustrating and disappointing among some bloggers.
    Please get some education.

    Zambian Politicians MUST learn to uphold gov’t institutions at the heart of our Democratic system and processes. ECZ is forced to work under undue pressure that if it were any other employment scenario, the employees would sue interference in their capability to do work. Where else in this world do you see Political parties arrange Hijacking groups to intercept Ballot boxes en route. Where do you see, careerist lawyers in ‘way too short’ skirts sitting with legs as wide open as the mouth shouting at ECZ employees.

Grow up and understand that in a democracy there is a winner and a loser. As electorates we are sick and tired of this moaning and mourning. Let us see how we all can develop our country.

With the current constitution that narrows the race to two in an event of a disputed and nullified election, Zambia must brace itself for waste times to come until we have civil approaches and reasonable treatment of ECZ in whatever form and capacity they are from ungrateful political parties leaders like HH and now EN.

Edith complaints comes from the fact that ECZ did not disqualify the UPND candidate for Namwala after the FDD candidate was brutally attached and hospitalised.You remember ECZ suspended campiagns in that area.She brought this issue up again with ECZ at Mulungushi Conference centre.Its from that back ground that she is demandind that commissioners and senior managers resign

  51. I agree fully with Ms Nawakwi. The ECZ has shown itself to be an organisation without proper controls and checks and balances. It’s however a reflection of the state of our country. One has to recognise that an organisation like the ECZ needs respect from the stakeholders, which means that processes for appointing the head and critical staff have to be through an independent body. Over the years we’ve seen Presidents trying to influence outcomes of elections through partisan appointments or hegemony. Instead of democracy, we’ve ended up with a system heavily favouring the incumbent and making the abuse of power a routine event. What I disagree with is that life goes on, as if all is well. People have to stand up and challenge the status quo for change. We are tired of mediocre people…

  52. No comment on this disgruntled woman seeking attention.
    Now imagine this loser lodging an election petition under whatever article, should the President of Zambia be sent on forced leave just like that and create insecurity in the nation? That is precisely what Hakainde is crying for, a power vacuum to enable him launch his armageddon.

  54. Suggesting to disband ECZ? I hope that those who would be put in place will have three heads each to be distinct from the learned people now manning the ECZ who have one head each. I nominate Nawakwi and ANTONIO. They failed to show ability to grow their party but can do better at ECZ.

  55. Comment:
    We have all seen and believed that the ECZ did not act professionally in the just ended elections. the ECZ was biased and this is why Zambians are condemning it with its Esau. Now with this, we are waiting to see if the Concourt wil as well accept to be condemned together with the ECZ which must be dibanded
