Edith Nawakwi with Running mate, Dr Rev Clement Mwanza

FORUM for Democracy and Development (FDD) running mate Dr Clement Mwanza has charged that President –elect Edgar Lungu won convincingly adding that the delays in inaugurating him as a Head of State would derail his developmental plans.

Dr Mwanza said in Chipata yesterday that Mr Lungu won the elections convincingly in the August 11th general elections.

He said there was just waste of time to delay his inauguration in order for Mr Lungu to start serious work.

“I feel EL (Mr Edgar Lungu) won the elections convincingly in the August 11th polls. The delay in inaugurating him as Head of State would also derail his developmental plans,” he said.

Dr Mwanza said politicians must learn to accept defeat to allow the smooth running of Government’s developments plans.

He explained that in any elections there was always a loser and winner adding that conceding defeat was the best option for any participating political party.

He said political parties must ensure that once defeated in an election, they start reorganising about the next elections.

Dr Mwanza said the best thing was to allow Mr Lungu to finish his term as Republican President.

He congratulated Mr Lungu for being re-elected into office as Head of State for the next five years.

He also lauded Mr Lungu for his plans to create a ministry specifically dedicated to handle affairs of religion in the country.

He said the move was welcome because the religious were lacking the stand own ministry to look at their affairs.

Dr Mwanza said the President-Elect must go ahead in the creation of the ministry in order to handle the religious affairs.

Last Sunday, Mr Lungu announced plans to create a ministry to specifically handle the religious affairs.

The President –elect said in Lusaka when he graced the reception service for the election of Sydney Sichilima as the Synod Bishop of the United Church of Zambia (UCZ) that as soon as the petition contesting his victory in this month’s elections was resolved by the constitutional Court and his five year mandate of office commenced, he would create the ministry of religion.

  1. You easterners are just shameful, we’ve had 2 very awful presidents from your region. One stole from the country and his child is still on the run while the other is inept, pretends to be humble and hides behind the church while he is enriching himself and oppressing those who don’t agree with him, shutting down private media so that the poor masses don’t know what he is up to.

    • @1 YOU MUST BE A VERY AGGRIEVED BRAINLESS CADRE AND VERY ADDICTED TO TRIBAL-ISM FOR YOU TO BE SEEING EVERYTHING ALONG TRIBAL LINES. THE WRITER OF THE ABOVE ARTICLE IS VERY REASONABLE AS A PERSON WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE ELECTIONS AS CANDIDATE. UPND ARE NOT SERVING A NATIONAL PURPOSE BUT HH’s STATE HOUSE DO OR DIE OCCUPANCY AMBITION PURPOSE. THEY ALREADY SAID EVEN BEFORE THE ELECTIONS THAT THEY WERE NOT GOING TO ACCEPT ELECTION RESULTS IF THEY WERE NOT THE WINNERS. SO, IT IS NOT SURPRISING THAT THEY PETITIONED THE ELECTION RESULTS. THESE BUNCH OF !DIOTS ARE JUST DELAYING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OLD AND NEW DEVELOPMENT PLANS AGAINST THE INTEREST OF ZAMBIANS WHO WANT TO SEE DEVELOPMENT AND CREATION OF OB AND HENCE WEALTH WITH ORDINARY ZAMBIANS. I FOR ONE HAS SOME PROJECTS WHICH ARE BEING…

    • So if he’s from Eastern Province he’s not allowed to congratulate the winner? You are supporting Muvi TV in the name of free expression, but you don’t want others to have different opinion from yours. You have been advised : go to the drawing board and plan for the next election.

  2. Ministry of religion??? You africans will forever be enslaved with backward thinking? Did you have religion before the whiteman introduced it to you while at the same time capturing your brothers and sisters and shipping them to foreign lands? And do you see the same white-man creating such ministries in his countries. Backward thinking, donuna reverse. Another useless ministry, with more greedy ministers to eat from government. What of all the people with different religions that have made Zambia their home? Will this Ministry also cater for them? The mind of an african kwena

    • I think you are the one who is backward in thinking because, as you can read here we are all condemning that backward thinking which you and your leader hh are exhibiting in the name of petition just to deray development from going to the people of Zambia even when you truly know in your hearts that you lost an election. Tell watchdogs also that they are *****s, son and daughters of the devil, crooks let them go to hell we don’t want them. HH will remain a bad example in the political relm because he does not think before talking or acting. Remember he promised us this Armageddon, Zambians will also armageddonise him when time allows.

  3. Don’t get me wrong having a faith is rewarding as it keeps you on the narrow and straight but fora leader to abuse it the way he has done since he ascended to power is just ridiculous.When things go wrong due to bad policy, it’s National Prayer. Is he that religious when he is hammering the brown bottle?

    • Debonaires don’t act inept you must appreciate when the economy is doing fine under difficult circumstances. The problems you upnd supporters is that you are always insanely vocal and bitter and complain really about everything, even when cowdung falls in your garden you complain, it really beats me.

    • I think we should refrain from calling each other names. Who is perfect in this world? Bang Bang is right, we should not look at petty issues because it only shows how small our minds are. Some of us have witnessed bad characters and disrespect for others behaviours pattern in UPND politicians but decided to respect them and their privacy. It is surprising that people prefer to point fingers and insults others than constructive criticism. Let us be slow to anger.

  5. May be Rev. Mwanza sees himself as the first Minister for Religious Affairs. We are supposed to be planning cost-saving measures as a country but what we are hearing are ‘spending measures’ of creating more Ministries.

  7. You have PF cadres calling Tonga’s as tribalists & yet we see tribalists everywhere like this Mwanza. What kind of a doc is he who is able to comment from the opposition on matters before courts of law? i would have excused him if he was PF. well he is PF hiding in UPP and wants his fellow Easterner who was elected flaudulently to be president. shame on you Mwanza

  8. Another A.S.S licker.
    Wasn`t it FDD who cried foul as well saying their numbers were not matching? Wasn`t it no Mwanza`s boss (Nawakwi) crying that she received zero votes from her home village?
    Now is Mwanza telling us that Nawakwi was lying or is he is now confirming that not even Nawakwi`s parents did not vote for Nawakwi and FDD?

  9. This is well said Dr Mwanza. People must learn to call a spade a spade. I know HH inwardly knows the bitter truth but for the sake of saving face not only to his caders, but as well as to his financiers he is claiming that Lungu stole the votes. If he is not careful, this might be the end of his political career, if there was one.

  11. Mwanza is only talking now. During election campaigns we never saw him addressing rallies. He is now looking to join the Lungu and PF gravy train based on “Wako niwako” and “Kumodzi kumaawa” basis. Politics of the belly and pure hypocrisy. Where is Edith Nawakwi in all this? She has sent her Running Mate to plead for jobs to Lungu?

  12. UPND and HH are just time wasters who should be dusted in a political bin for ever. They lost clearly and squarely which their hearts and consciences are admitting but only their mouths are denying. Shame on them.

  13. No wonder you are called doctor. People should learn to accept the results. To deter them from petition unnecessarily the courts should be throwing out petitions without merit and substance with huge costs e.g. those who were even beaten by independent candidates crying foul. Ba Davis Mwila you should be ashamed of yourself na kamusungu wamusonko(charlotte Scott).

  14. Nawakwi’s gimmick to secure some jobs, but , alas Lungu’s election will be nullfied. Those illegal ministers who gained advantage during elections, the hacker Chavula, the 14000 ballots in the dust bin, intimidation, maiming, and killing of opposition supporters, etc, etc., all this will cause ConCourt to nullify the results.

  15. HH has planted a thorny bush on the gates of state house by tempering with the will of the people of Zambia. I wonder the kind of advisers he has who cannot foresee how their behavior towards the president elected would pose a negative impact on their political career. he will never be president of Zambia because of this.

  18. The time waster is ECL who didnt have control on his mercenaries who went on rampage to rig the elections, just ask Chilubanama who single-handedly carried out the operations! If the mercenaries were under control, they wouldnt have messed-up the elections! By this time the dollar should have fallen and some of you, especially PFs with abused cash, where going to be choosing cars to buy from Japan! Now you have to suspend your plans just for a few days when the right winner shall be declared!

  19. A Upnd supporter told me that going by the large crowds attending HH ‘s rallies, there’s no way he could lose the election. I calmly told him that I had attended two Upnd rallies and non of the PF rallies but I voted for Edgar and PF.

  20. May Jesus forgive ours as a nation for the comments we make on this blog. I am an Seventh day Adventist and pray that our language must change. We are all accountable to God on His Judgement day……:Let us assume that Jesus comes to our earth today, shall we continue talking the same things before Him? Lastly, Jesus knows us His creature and died for all. He never died for PF, UPND, FDD or Narep only. Neither did he die for Lozi, or Tonga or Bemba or Ngonis.
    Never, divorce your way of life from Jesus and think you can say or insult another person because you feel your views are more important.
    Remember , Jesus came to die for all, not you or me alone…….. Your being or life is in Jesus. He decides whether you life must continue today and tomorrow and thereafter call up His…

      yea we need blogers like you more often here. you can change a lot of them from their wicked thoughts which are manifested in insults and trible comments. we all know that great development can and will only come with unity and respect for one another regardless of where we come from within zambia. But some people choose to talk against unity and peace. shame.

  22. If you want to hide information from a lazy person put it in the book. He/She will never read it to find answers. The doc. isn’t looking for a job but is merely calling a spade a spade. The new constitution “18 No 2 of 2016 bars losing candidates from certain appointments, ministerial inclusive. Please read the new constitution before you post unsubstantiated claims.

  24. We should also congratulate Mr. Spoilt Ballots who convincingly trounced FDD, without even campaigning.

    If HH and ECL where not there, I’m certain Mr Spoilt Ballots would be Zambia’s President-elect.

  30. THIS SNAKE’S TITLE “REVERENT” SAYS IT ALL!!
    He is simply throwing his hat in the ring, so he can “Eat” once Chagwa creates his useless religious ministry, soon to be filled by Corrupt Naked Cadre Clergymen.
    These are the same “Men of Gold” one sees ripping off the poor on a daily basis, mostly in Nigeria, whilst enjoying untold luxury, possesing the finest jewellery, expensive mansions, & private aircraft at their disopsal, @ the expense of the Docile African
    However do Africans learn?? NO!!
    Despite these religious leeches NOT being able to forsee the collapse of their own compounds, – (Joshua), resulting in huge loss of life, the gullible african will continue praising, & paying the “Godly Conman”.
    At this rate religion should really be scaled down, even banned…
