The opposition Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) has welcomed the decision of the Constitutional Court to dismiss the petition by the UPND against the re-election of President Edgar Lungu.

MMD president Felix Mutati said the decision of the Constitutional Court has come as a big relief to the people of Zambia who have patiently waited for the outcome of the presidential petition.

He noted that the conclusion of the case was a victory for all Zambians who were yearning for a peaceful end to the whole process.

And Mr. Mutati has called on President Lungu to now focus on uniting the country and accelerate national development following the affirmation of his re-election by the Constitutional Court.

He said time has come for all Zambians to rally behind the leadership of President Lungu and foster peace and unity across the country.

Mr. Mutati further urged the opposition political parties especially the UPND to respect the decision of the Constitutional Court.

Meanwhile, there was jubilation in Kasama today after the Constitutional Court threw out United Party for National Development’s (UPND) petition against the re-election of President Edgar Lungu.

Taxi drivers and Patriotic Front (PF) supporters thronged the Kasama town chanting popular PF slogans to show solidarity to President Lungu and his running mate Inonge Wina over their election victory.

Several PF officials, who led the supporters in the jubilation, have thanked President Lungu for exhibiting patience throughout the petition period.

One of the officials, Patrick Chisanga, said PF supporters were happy that the presidential petition had now been closed.

Mr. Chisanga, who is also Kasama Mayor, appealed to all Zambians to support Mr. Lungu and his vice president Mrs. Wina to develop the country.

He said time for politicking was now over adding that people should bury their differences and promote national peace which was a prerequisite for the development of the country.

And a Kasama resident, Barton Bwalya, expressed happiness with the outcome of the presidential petition.

Mr. Bwalya told ZANIS that it was regrettable that the petition had derailed the progress of development in the country.

Meanwhile, paramount chief Chitimukulu has commended the Constitutional Court for upholding the re-election of President Lungu.

The Chitimukulu observed that the court ruling has shown that the country’s democracy was moving forward.

He has since urged Zambians to respect the decision of the Constitutional Court and continue promoting national peace and unity in the country.

Today the Constitutional Court threw out the petition challenging the re-election of President Lungu by the opposition UPND.

The Court ruled that it has no jurisdiction to hear the UPND presidential petition because the 14-day period given for the matter to be heard had elapsed.

  1. Edgar Lungu is a cursed man and I 100% doubtful if he will ever finish this 5 year stolen term. I case the grave of a woman who gave birth to him. This is my first comment in 20 months and I will never comment again.

    • True Mr Mutati, you are right.

      The nation is more than two individuals with an extreme passion for power.

      How do you force your help on someone who does not want your help.

      HH says he just wants to serve the Zambian people, but wait a minute! You want to serve the Zambian people even when they dont want you to serve them?

      If zambians wanted HH’s service they would have old him through the ballot.

      You don’t false yourself and your service on people.

    • @ 1 Hildah Malama,

      You will have five years to curse.
      But the curse you are making will be transformed into blessing each time pastors lay hands on the head if state.

      Just be careful because curses often behave like a ball. They hit and bounce right back.

      This is so because God has said,
      “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you”.

      If you believe curses work, you must believe this writing.

    • May all the curses return to you a thousand fold. You cannot take the sit of God and live. God id God and does not need human help, especially from prostitutes like yourself. You are dealing with a different person in Lungu. Your evil desires will will not succeed against him, just as you have failed in all election against him.

      Just go and lick your wounds. HH needs people like you to help him lick his wounds.

      We told you that you never win elections with insults. You are now eating your own vomit!!!!

    • A relief from what? Why ba Mutati is it a relief when the ConCourt has NOT passed any decision apart from abandoning it role to hear the matter. It has NOT confirmed ECL as the winner. It did NOT hear the petition. What is there to celebrate for the inaction of the ConCourt?

      Bane mukose….on this one, we have months more to go if the Judiciary decides to do another Judge Mugeni gymnastics.

      Judge Mungeni record.
      1. She ushers Lungu onto PF presidency by endorsing a Consent Judgment whilst Sampa and Lungu were tangling over PF. She tells Sampa to come to her court after elections!
      2. She uses the 14 days to hear preliminary issues for the petition. On the 14th day she backtracks from the four day hearing she had promised and tells petitioner to wind up. She changes once…

    • Zambia is not a christian nation, It’s the devils workshop! even the so called born again christians never help their relatives, it’s just a way of hiding their money. Who can claim to be a christian? Frank Bwalya? or Joshua Banda? just be honest.

  6. There was once Lady of Niger,
    Who smiled as she rode on a tiger,
    They returned from a ride,
    With the lady inside,
    And a smile on the face of the Tiger.

  7. HH we love you and we pray that you will not be bitter with the courts decision. Every well meaning person respects your tenacity and resolve. We appreciate you and your contribution to this great country of ours. We wish you well. You are as much Zambian and everyone of us.

    I would never in my life time support the likes of Mutati. He is too power hungry. His hands are soiled too

  9. OH NO, NO, WHAT THESE LUNGU JUDGES HAVE DONE I THINK ITS LIKE ROMAN’S RULERS DURING THE TRIAL OF JESUS CHRIST. JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED FOR TELLING THE TRUTH. HE WAS TAKEN TO ALL LEADERS OF THE ROMANS, ON PEOPLE LIKE PF SAID CRUCIFY HIM CRUCIFY HIM INCLUDING THOSE WHO WERE IN THE RULING PANEL LIKE THE SAID FIVE JURIES OF TODAY FOR PF. AS FOR PF, THEY DO NOT EVEN WANT TO HEAR WHAT THE PETITION IS ALL ABOUT, EVIL AS THEY ARE.
    HH IS HANGED ON A TRY FOR TRYING TO REMOVE OPPRESSED ZAMBIANS FROM POVERTY AND VOICELESS, HH IS MISTREATED BY THE TRIBALISTS APPOINTED BY LUNGU, HH IS KILLED LIKE MAZOKA BECAUSE HE IS NOT OF THEIR BELOVED ONE. TODAY PF HAS MADE A MINISTRY CALLED CHRISTIANS FOR LUNGU LIKE THE TIME OF JESUS AND CEPHAS, PILATE AND READ (JOHN 18:12-24;MAT 26:57-68; 27:1-2;LK 23:1-5; LUKE…

  14. @Hilda Malama, wishing something bad on anyone is not good. The supreme being himself will deal with Lungu and his cadres for the killing of Mapenzi. One thing is sure that Lungu will not enjoy his deceitful presidency with a clear mind. his ministers and supporters like the the failed from grace father Bwalya and the Lusaka pastors, bishops for Lungu who have contributed to the shedding of innocent blood will be judged by the supreme being if they will not repent. let them rejoice but the supreme being is looking at what they’re doing

    • Mzee David Ngetich

      Do your Courts in Kenya dismiss petitions without hearing them after they have given directions on the date when they will start trial?

      That is what the beef is down here in Zambia. The Court told the petitioners to come on a certain day for trial. When they reached there, this court told them, it could not hear them as it had run out of time!!!

  21. Some of the people who writes on these social media i think are demons because a normal person cannot curse the president in public like Hilder. Limo muletinako Lesa ifwe we don’t know you but GOD knows you and why putting your name in the book of death (Hell) because of politics? May GOD’s love enters your heart and be delivered sister, devil will never take you anywhere. See now how peoples words are sending back curse upon your life, don’t think it’s just a play your life is at stake now repent Jesus loves you and me but me i have given my life to HIM, you also repent and stop all foolishness.
