Newly elected UPND Dundumwezi Member of Parliament Edgar Singombe says the people of Dundumwezi will only welcome President Edgar Lungu’s announced visit to the area if he comes with solutions to the many problems facing the people.

Speaking in an interview shortly after the inauguration ceremony of President Lungu, Mr Singombe said President Lungu should not use Dundumwezi as a mockery of development instead must deliver tangible development.

He said the people of Dundumwezi voted in the manner they did as a protest against under development.
Mr Singombe said after late President Sata visited the area, there was hope that the PF government will deliver development but to no avail.

He said President Lungu should only come with answers as to why the people of Dundumwezi are not benefitting from the national cake.

“Yes i have heard him mentioning Dundumwezi, that is nice but let him not mock those people because they voted like that expecting development and now that he has imposed himself on the people’s will, let him deliver,” Mr. Singombe said.

” We were told that mobile and road network challenges will soon be a thing of the past in my constituency but nothing has been done up to now,” he said.

Meanwhile Singombe has pledged his continued support of the UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.

He said the party has to unite and go back to the people who voted for Mr Hichilema and has since advised UPND supporters to remain calm and wait for a directive from the top authorities.

    • Embarrassed by tribal voting ba MP?

      …forget HH’s directives, show some dignity and welcome us there.

      ….who doesn’t know how many people there really are in that gamepark?

    • Folks, you risk suffocating yourselves irredeemably. Time to catch the big unity Zambian spirit is now. Not kidding, Zambia is just about to take-off for Greatness never seen before. Be part of the Glory train. All of us defenders of the Zambian interest at heart will help this Presidency in our small to transform Zambia with our unflinching support. We will do so from the front in massive resources mobilization, ingenuity,
      idea generation leadership with strong investment appetite. Isolationist thinking will hurt you needlessly. Time to redeem yourselves is now.

    • How can he bring development if he does not visit your area first. You as MP are suppose to tell the Government of the day what the people really want. Accept ECL as president of zambia untill 2021.

    • UNGRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU FOOOL? ISN’T IT TONGAS WHO HAVE TAUGHT THE UMUNANI PEOPLE HOW TO BE FARMERS? ISN’T IT THE TONGAS WHO ALLOWED THEIR LAND LUSAKA TO BE USED AS CAPITAL CITY FOR ZAMBIA? ISN’T IT THE TONGAS SUPPLYING FOOD TO FEED EVERY JIM AND JACK IN ZAMBIA? ISN’T IT THE TONGAS WHO ARE SUPPLYING ELECTRICITY TO THE ENTIRE COUNTRY? YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE UNGRATEFUL OF THE TONGAS., TONGAS HAVE SURVIVED FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS AFTER INDEPENDENCE WITHOUT HAND-OUTS FROM SELFISH GOVERNMENTS. GOD HAS BLESSED US ALREADY. WE DON’T CARE ABOUT EDGAR CHAKOLWA CRIMINAL LOOTER LUNGU.

    • Lungu’s sneering tone about Dundumwezi shows why this dunderhead is not fit to be President. At such an occasion, you would expect a normal person to concentrate on the big picture instead of whinging about people who did not vote for him. I have never seen a credible winner who spends all his energy on castigating those who do not support him. What a smallminded dimwit!

    • This MP is a lunatic, President is Lungu a Commander in Chief and he represents Zambia. He is an office and an institution and no one can stop him from visiting any part of Zambia. This Tonga is sick because if he can say that to his president can a Daka, Mulenga visit the area? Am warning that, this man is the one fueling tribalism and should be charged and arrested. Campaign time is over. You are making us hate ka hh more.

    • Extract from the speech “My Dundumwezi promise stands…I am coming to greet those 252 dear supporters of mine and hope to convert more! I feel and hear your needs and we will not let you down.
      Let me end by saying let us hold each other’s hand and move forward together. We can jointly and whilst holding hands together climb even the highest mountain without being daunted by its summit.” why should one be offended?

    • Regionalists will always be regionalists. Look at the bottom road and Kalabo road and bridge. Did they appreciate. Never ever. It’s a waste of time and effort.

    • @Lungowe: anybody who detests Tongas detests Lozis. Unless you are a fake Lozi, probably like Pallan Mulonda, you will die the same death as Tongas when Bembas start their barbaric genocidal traditions from the DRC.

    • There’s no such thing as the Bottom Road; it is impassable, if is not complete. Kalabo Road was commissioned and funded by MMD. PF cannot claim that icon for themselves. You should sonta at the Mongu Stadium and the King Lewanika University – all are phantom PF projects. PF have even failed to complete the Kitwe-Chingola dual carriageway that was initiated in 2012 by Sata. Sonta at your PFailures!

  1. Redeem yourselves from a tunnel vision and be part of the big Zambian enterprise forward under the leadership of H.E President Lungu.

    • @senile citizen

      There is nothing to expect for the rest of Zambians including the dununa reverse deceived from Chagwa Dove apart from austerity and difficult times.

      A tunnel vision of Southern Province is development, development, development for all our people. If you didn’t steal our taxes and use it in your impoverished areas we would have been light years away in development. However, our people face daily banditry from Lungu PF whereby our resources are taken elsewhere to people who refuse to work.

    • @ Truth, some of those you are sighting like electricity etc are national programmes. Moreover you ought to know that the tide is moving to the northern and north western circuit where there is more water. Your Province has become more of a desert than anything (because of your bad practices) causing a lot of your people to trek to Copperbelt, Central even Luapula and Northern Provinces where they have been welcomed, which you yourselves can’t do, I mean welcoming other people
      The desert situation in your province is real causing you to eat roots due to starvation and perpetually receiving relief food (food hand outs) which does not happen in other provinces

  2. Messed up fool, what then will you be doing yourself as mp if the president should be the one to bring solutions. Live in the dundumwezi you built

  3. Talk about an arogant delusional stooge. How on earth is the UPND controlled by someone that has never been even a councilor? Seriously democracy calls for one to be challenged at every position. It is not a kingdom where power is only for family members.

    • @ Truth, In addition, your agriculture skills which you could have learn probably from the white commercial farmers who settled in Southern Province can be learnt by others as well. The Southern towns being urbanised was due to the rail line and the white settlers. But in spite of that, you find very backward poverty stricken people just like anywhere else. But just know that things don’t happen everywhere in the same manner at the same time

    • If Tonga farming skills can be learned, how come Bembas continue to excel at street vending, begging and stealing govt resources? Is thieving a Bemba genetic disorder?

  4. This is stupidity of the highest level, there is no way someone can say edgar has imposed himself on
    the people simply because he didnt vote for him. Stop thinking as UPND you are a leader my dear.

    • Lungu stole the election. Lusaka votes cannot be backed up by proper documentation. That is why the petition could not be heard by the PF stooges at the Kangaroo Court. Lungu cannot walk away from this fact.

    • I was equally buffled!…ati..now that he has imposed himself on the people’s will, let him deliver,” Mr. Singombe said.

      So only the UPND is the people’s will right? Time for politicking iwe Singombe is over. Just represent your people kwasila. We cannot be politicking the whole year atase!

    • treason. If ECL wants to save this Country and prevent its destruction and preserve it for our future generations, let them analyse the campaign messages and other information being disseminated in these regions.

      What is very clear is that HH is using the divide and rule strategy which has failed to work. He is also using a strategy bent on destroying this Country and he does’t care about the harm he is doing to this Country, its … if he can’t win then lets destroy it…..’tufilile mu nsenga’. THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING VERY QUICKLY

    • @jk: whatever your Bemba saying means is lost on me as I don’t understand the language of thieves. Anyway, find the den of thieves that continues to call a significant ethnic group called Tongas as bakachema. That’s the party that is bent on dividing Zambia. Those are the dimwits who find it unforgivable that their thieving ways are not embraced by rural farmers in Dundumwezi.

  5. Development has to come through you bwana MP. With that attitude how are you going to cooperate with th people who facilitate it? No we 50.34% elected the President he did not impose himself. Even if you did not vote for him, the constitution says he is President of the whole Zambia the one who gets 50%+1. Or is Dundumwezi a family farm? What about Choma with all that development how many people voted for ECL? You are just tribalists dont give excuses. Remember you will take oath as MM. Lets see you in parliament in your tribal mental regalia.

    • The campaign messages and other information being disseminated in the three provinces almost amount to treason and hence must be investigated otherwise HH is bent on destroying our beautiful Country and this we cannot allow.

    • Which beautiful country? Zambia is a failed state. Chakolwa is the same one guilty of butchering the Constitution. Chakolwa has to hang onto the Presidency because he is good for treason on at least three counts.

  6. Typical under 5 politics. How on earth can someone claim the area has not received development? Even Choma which has received massive development, people never voted for ECL. The voting patterns in southern province has to change because its being done on tribal lines and not what the government in power will do or hasn’t done.

    • The Bantu-botatwe stretch from Livingstone to Kabwe/Kapiri and span Mumbwa to past Chongwe.

      Fiercely independent they are the backbone of Zambia. Endowed with key natural resources, Zambia cannot do without them. They host the capital Lusaka and tourist capital, Livingstone. Bantu-botatwe are the heart beat of Zambia’s economy.

    • @ 6.1 Mayongati tribes are in areas which are endowed by shear coincidence. Lusaka was chosen as the capital due to geographical location. Tongas did not invent the Zambezi river nor the victoria falls. The Lambas had no clue there were minerals in their area until the whiteman came. Zambia is endowed by all sorts which are complimentary and should be enjoyed by all not just a frustrated few.

    • @Lusaka: the truth is that Bembas are a distraction from development of Zambia. A group that believes in stealing and chaos as a basis for a livelihood cannot be welcome in power. This must be corrected by all Zambians who want development. We must fight this evil with all our might until we succeed.

  7. Take development and win their hearts. Don’t expect fruits where you did not sow. Typical Zambians. You want votes even were you did nothing and insulted the people. Foolish PF chaps. You insult my family and expect a meal from my house? What nonsense. Just work and then you can complain next time if they don’t give you a vote. Don’t expect votes if you keep hating on people

  8. Yes ,tell these thugs and their dictator president to focus on develipment not political vindictiness.

    Thank you gallant pipo of Dundumwezi for teaching these thugs a bitter lesson.

    Now they can’t sleep over you till 2021.

    Hate or leave.

    Proud Dundumwezian for Life.

    • The dictator is in UPND…when did you have a convention…meanwhile the international community is showering praises on ECL and ECZ for holding free and fair elections….Sorry…you have 5 years of sulking

    • @Vizungu: the one who is crying is, strangely, PF and its Chakolwa. Of all things to mention during an inauguration, the small number of votes Chakolwa got from Dundumwezi must have cut him down deeply. Chakolwa is still bleeding and you can see that he cannot understand how half of Zambia does not believe his lies.

    • @Buck Teeth Lungu, at least more than half of the voters believe in him.

      The other guy’s situation is even worse; more than half of ‘Zambians’ do not believe his utopia, ALL of the courts can not stand his misconceived applications, and the Chief Justice simply ignores him…

      Btw, about this MP, Kainde really has a weird and damaging influence on his followers…

  9. ECL did not go to Dumdumwenzi to campeign because relied on: ECZ-rigging, ZAF abuse, ZNBC abuse, public funds abuse, violence etc. Do PF supporters expect that when voters were going to vote they were to agree among themselves to alocate voting in tribal balance?

    • You say ECL relied on ECZ rigging, ECZ foreigner registration, ECZ relatives Presiding Officers, Airforce abuse, ZNBC abuse, Dubai extra ballots, Ugandans if IT rooms, Mwalitetas’ pepper spray robbery, Concourt judges bribes, High Court judges bribery, Supreme Court Justices bribery. Are you seeing any iota of sense in all this?
      I can understand hakainde believing himself when he makes such wild allegations, he has known the pain of being a reject. But for a supporter such as you, it is stoopidity of the lowest rungs.

    • @Kakolwe: only a PF idyot believes that Chakolwa deserved votes in areas be never campaigned in, and in areas PF never developed after 2011. Farmers are practical people. They do not believe patent lies by Chakolwa.

    • People, how does Tonga claim to be closer to Lambas. Kaondes, Lundas etc. These people came from Luba- Lunda in Empire in Congo and are more related to Bembas than Tongas who don’t even know their history. Can the someone urgently do some damage control in these places and restore these relationships

    • @jk: PFailures are too busy celebrating their Pyrrhic victory. They have no time for damage control as “boma ni boma” . They are too busy pressing the faces of the losers in the mud to notice how hollow their victory is.

    • Trust me. ECL could have camped in Dundumwezi half the election time, he would get almost the same votes. If they Dundumwezian dont believe in ECL they will not change by him going there. There are other PF cadres and campaigner who went there. Talk about something logical!

  10. With is type of behavior it will be impossible for UPND to form government. UPND and tongas should change their mental picture of future state.

    • And look at what your govt has done to Zambia! Powercuts, hyperinflation, huge national debt, high mealie meal prices etc. What Pathetic Failures!

  11. Singombe is very right! If Edgar is serious he should stop talking irrelevant things and focus on delivering his campaign promises to ensure he consolidates his parties endearment with the people that believe in his party! He SHOULD PRIORITIZE AREAS where HE GOT VOTES FROM otherwise HE WILL SINK his party in 2021 IF HE THINKS HE APPEASE TRIBALISTS. Why even mention Dundumwezi where PF might have done nothing! WHY NOT REMIND people in SOUTHERN and WESTERN provinces of VARIOUS PROJECTS GOVT HAS DONE and the POOR VOTES he got in return? EDGAR SHOULD THINK and REMEMBER that the GOOD VOTES HH got in “PF STRONGHOLDS” will ONLY GROW in 2021 if he CONTINUES to NEGLECT THOSE AREAS in the name of unity! A TRIBALIST CAN NEVER BE APPEASED!

    • You are right. Because Lungu cannot strategise on national issues, expect PF to do worse in its strongholds in 2021 because the economy will be worse, prices will be higher, unemployment will be endemic etc. Lungu’s victory is hollow. It’s a Pyrrhic one. He should concentrate on Chawama so that those slum dwellers do not riot against PF very soon when they go hungry.

  12. Lungu can visit any town in zambia without restrictions. UPND you have no right to divide Zambia and stop the president.

    • Who is dividing Zambia? Just read comments which are full of bred imbec1lity, tr1bal hatred, and outright 5tupidity. And you are educated? You are Zambian? Shame on you.

    • Shame on you Mr Born Free. Your Dudumwezi MP is as lost as all you UPND cadres. How can you say an elected President has imposed himself on Dudumwezi and you say you are not tribalist? The President rules the country, Zambia, not just areas where he received more votes. If you fell he is imposing himself on you and people, then how do you expect anything from him, surely why not ask your HH to develop Dudumwezi for you. Grow up and accept that hh and his goons lost the elections because the majority of Zambians do not need them.

  13. With such attitude they will be passive mps in parliament coz they will aim at voting opposite all the time. Politicking is over and let them work with the gvt of the day
    pf already has majority mps and will not rely on anybody to pass their bills.indeeed under 5s

    • Why work with the govt of the day? This is a gross misunderstanding of democracy and political parties. Political parties are only there to wrest power from the current regime so that they can implement their own manifestos. That is the only reason for existence for political parties.

  14. Its sad that the statement is coming from the Elected MP. we should start thinking about Unity and if this MP can Claim that during the previous 5 years of PF Dundumwezi has never received CDF then i will agree but all in all that voting was based of hate-rage and tribalism lets not be naive.

  15. Kwena! An MP who has failed to develop his area wants to snub a sitting President in the name of Politics! Campaign is over mudala, if I lived in Dudumwezi, I would de-campaign this ingrate that chooses to eat alone while the people suffer, why do you want to hold Zambians to ransom?

  16. Lungu should concentrate on NW province. Southern, Western and LSK have enjoyed more than a fair share of the PF infrastructure revolution. By all means, Solwezi should not continue to be an eye sore despite being the provincial centre of the new CB province. Zikomo.

    • @16 Chalo Nkanza, you are very right!!In ADDITION TO PRIORITIZING STRONGHOLDS, LUNGU SHOULD SERIOUSLY LOOK AT BRINGING NWESTERN PROVINCE AND CB RURAL ON BOARD by DELIVERING DEVELOPMENT! NW DESERVES BETTER THAN SOME UNGRATEFUL PROVINCES!!NW and CB RURAL are just BEING RECRUITED IN UPND’s TRIBALISM BUT WITH PROPER STRATEGIES THEY CAN BREAK RANKS and MOVE WITH THE REST OF ZAMBIA!! No one should even start asking why Southern and Western voted like that! The reason is clear and it cannot be lack of development bcoz they received more development than all other rural provinces! NW has SOME REAL GRIEVANCES which TRIBALISTS ARE FEASTING ON TO MAKE PEOPLE START DRIFTING AWAY FROM THE REST OF ZAMBIA!!

    • I agree with you two. Let ECL take development to NWP. When I listen to debates in Parley MPs are agreeable on the fact that Luapula is the least developed followed by NWP whereas SP is high up there. So I understand where NWP are coming from and ECL should look at these two provinces first.

  17. Why should ECL go to Dundumwezi with solutions? Is it not the work of the MP to find out about problems of Dundumwezi and come up with solutions with them? It looks like this MP does not seem to know what his work as MP is. What a Dundumwezi dunderhead!!!

    • The least developed provinces are Luapula, North Western, Muchinga and Nothern, make no mistake, the most developed province, even Lucky Mulusa observed it, is Southern. So Government pay attention to these provinces

  18. ECL the president who is overshadowed by God’s grace…!!! God qualifies the unqualified… that’s why eChi Echi and his Buddie Mumbe Lost the election because they thought they were qualified…. God resists the proud and lifts the humble…. God bless my president ECL with long life (Ps91:16)

  19. These people from Southern do no just appreciate others except their own who has never done anything.The people of Dundummwezi will benefit from a big modern hospital that PF has constructed in Kalomo.In Gwembe and Kazungula,similar hospitals have also been done.A very expensive road commonly known as bottom road is done connecting Siavonga,Gwembe,Sinazongwe and ultimately connect to Livingstone.In Mazabuka,Monze,Choma and Livingstone,good township roads are done.Niko-Monze road,schools,clinics etc have been done.

    Was your HH going to develop the whole country at once if he came to power ? How many people has he assisted with the so called animals ? As part of his social corporate responsibility,what has he done for the province which gives him almost 100 percent vote ? Mr Singombe…

    • @economical Truth

      The people of Chief Chikanta (Dundumwezi) grow a substantial portion of the maize exported to Zimbabwe thereby improving foreign exchange reserves. They need a hospital right there in Chief Chikanta and not Kalomo.

      The people of Southern Province have nothing to appreciate for what belongs to them. They are NET contributors to the exchanger and fiscus. The surplus is used to develop other parts of Zambia. Southern Province and North Western Province is the one bearing the cost of development in Luapula, Muchinga and Northern which are net deficit regions.

      There are no township roads that have been completed in Kalomo, Monze, Choma. You even lie that the Niko-Monze road has been done. Even the HQ building in Choma has not been completed.

      Southern…

    • Southern Province does not need a Lungu visit. We are self sufficient and are not beggars. Leave us alone.

      We are endowed forever as the producers of all Zambian power, sugar, bulk of maize/cattle, only one with Vic Falls!!!!

      Southerners unlike PF northern tribes are hard working self sufficient people. The net losers in this war of attrition is NOT southerners. We are too strong economically and spiritually. PF tribe depend on us for the next meal. FACT.

    • @Jayego: Your people in Dundumwezi must be dull. You say they export all the maize to Zimbabwe and forget that they need development for their area. Surely they are not farming for the government but they farm so that they can have money in their pockets. If you are clever, you and your MP would find a way for channelling some of the money generated from the maize farming towards development. A dull MP obviously will not know how to attract investors to his area. A good MP on the other hand will have the right connections both within the investor community and government to direct money for development to his/her area. Do not blame government for your dull MPs.

    • Southern province has received more relief foof than any other province, so what do you mean you are self sufficient.
      Southern Province has seen the highest number of migrants to other provinces due to drought/ desert in the province, so what do you mean …self sufficient, Mwe mbutushi mwe

  20. You are the MP for the area, tell the president what you want. Do not just sit in parliament and argue. We want to see you work for this area.

  21. For North Western,Chingola -Solwezi road which is in a very bad state has been a major source of dissatisfaction and understandably so because the contractors are taking too long to finish.The tribalists from the oppostion have taken advantage to mislead the people that despite the province being the major producer of copper,government has neglected them.What has been done in Southern if it was done in NWP,PF was going to be appreciated and they would have gotten even 80 percent of the votes.

    • @Chinyama,

      Do not sell your birthright. North Western Province is a rich province. You don’t need to clap for someone who gives you what belongs to you.

      A political party does not use its money to develop any part of the country. Instead as we have seen with the PF they have used the money generated in North Western Province to develop areas that produce nothing in Muchinga and related areas.

  22. ECL again and again. ECL again and again. Please baUPND don’t shoot. Just advise. I enjoy your arguments which are educative and I learn something from your comments. We are always learning and nobody knows it all. Thank you.

  23. Again I say, it’s time to bring up NW province. It remains largely untouched. It is a far cry compared to the rest of the country. Bridge the Kabompo river to connect Zambezi and Lukulu districts. Also interconnect Zambezi and Kaoma districts, thus reducing the Lsk-Zambezi trip by about 300 km. The people of NW have genuine grievances, old perennial grievances, tracing back to the Mushala rebellion. Zikomo.

  24. You Tongas and B3s in general

    Please liberate yourself from tribal slavery which your saviour Lord Hakainde “Voldemort” Hichilema has locked you in.

    Can’t you see that this devil and his legions just want to use you for his selfish purposes!??

    It does not matter from which tribe a leader comes from, but rather his vision and leadership.

    HH and his cohorts have nothing to offer you. He just wants to enrich himself further. Why did he not rehabilitate Bweengwa school with just a tiny portion of all his riches??

    Wake up !!!

    • What Zambia needs is liberation from the tribal thieves and looters.

      How can a person steal K10 m in a year and you cheer him on to steal K50 m or more in next 5 years?

      Lungu from childhood has always been a thief.

  25. I CAN’T PRAISE A THIEF POSING AS PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. INFACT WE DO NOT NEED EDGAR LUNGU IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE. DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE PROPELS ITSELF. SINCE INDEPENDENCE, THERE IS NO GOVERNMENT INFRASTRUCTURE THAT HAS EVER BEEN CONSTRUCTED IN MONZE, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE, YET THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES HAVE DEVELOPED THE TOWN. A LOT OF FOOD IS COMING OUT OF MONZE AND IS FEEDING MILLIONS IN LUSAKA, COPPERBELT AND KASUMBALESA. SO TO HELL WITH EDGAR CHAKOLWA LUNGU. TONGAS ARE SURVIVORS, WE WILL SURVIVE WITHOUT HAND-OUTS FROM EDGAR CRIMINAL LUNGU.

    • @ Truth no matter what you say, however you say it, when you wake up the next day, ECL will still be your President. Please stop hurting. Anyway this is just but a lone tiny voice on Lusaka Times. I leave in Choma and am not one of those tribes that you hate with a passion. I DID NOT VOTE FOR HH! Simple!

    • In a democracy even fools have the right to express themselves.
      What a fool says, however, has little impact.

      It is my hope and prayer that we, as people of Zambia, will start respecting ourselves after the elections

    • Southern province has received more relief foof than any other province, so what do you mean you are self sufficient.
      Southern Province has seen the highest number of migrants to other provinces due to drought/ desert in the province, so what do you mean …self sufficient, Mwe mbutushi mwe

  26. With this kind of thinking, i am so great full that we voted for ELC. As upnd sit down to do the swot analysis for the just ended campaign period, they will find that one of their weaknesses is their under five thinking. Where on earth can one win elections in 3 provinces? That tribal talk will not take you anywhere you will be in opposition in perpetuity.

    • How come those other 7 provinces only allowed Lungu to win with a small margin that was rigged in Lusaka? It is PF who need some serious strategising. All the money, all the violence, all the intimidation against the opposition , all the ZNBC and print media propaganda translated into a measly win that had to be rigged up in Lusaka. What lessons have PF learnt? Turnout in supposed PF strongholds was low because people are disappointed with the lies, despite blowing $10bn of national resources. From now onwards, PF has no more money to waste and steal. Watch out how 2021 will wipe out the PFailures.

  27. BIG UPS TO THE FBRETHRENS OF DUNDUMWEZI for teaching jockers that voting is a civilised way of expressing your democractic rights. People of dundumwezi voted based on issues affecting them in their daily life. Voting is a language in democracy that should be respected by civilised people.
    You dont expect civilised people to vote for good things that they have never seen or selling their democratic right for a mare k1o or beer as witnessed in some parts of the country where most of the talkative bloggers are coming from.
    So if you have a heart for humanity, go to dundumwezi and see if there is anything to smile about in the area. We know hatred and criminality is part of your genetics but still respect the democratic right of the people.

  28. HH POLITICAL CAREER WAS PUT TO REST IN DUDUMWEZI ON 13/09/2016 AND THIS MP WAS MC AT THE BURIALS SITE. GO WELL KACHEMA (HH)

  29. WHEN SOUTHERN,WESTERN AND NW VOTE FOR UPND IT’S TRIBAL BUT WHEN EASTERN LUAPULA,NORTHERN AND MUCHINGA VOTE FOR PF IT’S STRONG HOLD. LUNGU SHOULD STOP DRINKING KACHASU AND THINK ON HOW TO REUNITE THIS COUNTRY.THIS DIVISION FORCED KAUNDA TO INTRODUCE ONE PARTY STATE THROUGH THE CHOMA DECLARATION. IN THIS ELECTION THE LOSER IS ZAMBIA.WE ARE WAITING TO SEE HOW LUNGU WILL HEAL THIS DEEP WOUND WHICH HAS DIVIDED THIS COUNTRY IN TWO – NORTH EASTERN AND NORTH WESTERN RHODESIA.HISTORY IS REPEATING IT SELF.

    • YES, HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF. BANIYA BAKABWALALA AABA! INFACT LUNGU IS VERY LUCK THAT HE WAS CONTENDING WITH THE SOBER HH. BUT WATCH THE PACE AND SEE ZAMBIAN POLITICS WHEN SOME OF US THE BOLD COME FULL SWING INTO THE POLITICAL ARENA. ZAMBIA WILL BURN. THIEVES WILL HAVE TO RULE THEMSELVES ALONE IN THEIR REGIONS, IN IN CENTRAL, COPPERBELT, LUSAKA, NORTH-WESTERN, WESTERN AND SOUTHEREN PROVINCES. ZAMBIA IS SOON RIPENING FOR A CIVIL WAR. WE CAN’T FOR EVER BE RULED BY THIEVES ALONE, NO!

  30. ECL just said that he is going to thank the 253 voters
    and what has UPND done there having been in control??

  31. Even if pf takes development to dundumwezi, they will still vote for hh..! Its not about development but tribalism..! Lstn, kalomo, choma, Monze and other areas in southern province have received a fair share of development but did they vote for pf..? Western and northwestern provinces can change if development is taken to the provinces.

  32. This MP is dull. He is suppose to have solutions and get help from the president but he expects solutions from an outsider? Please learn to work with the government of the day that’s why you will always keep on complaining. Just welcome the president with two hands and when some infrastructure are done you will have something to point at in 2021 wake up.

  33. Who cares about them anyway! Even though they voted in that manner, did their candidate win? No! SO? Dundumwezi is not Zambia, they should not hold the President at Ransom they are not special to receive special treatment atase! They can go to HELL for what we care. They shall be treated like all of us, he said he will develop the whole country and not just the bloody Dundumwezi stop threatening us as if you are very important!

  34. TIME TO WORK FELLOW UPND, BUT KICK OUT HH NOW!CONVENTION!
    The message is loud and clear. I hope UPND generals are meeting with other top leaders soon to chart the way forward. We need another leader now. The song has been sung a million times. There is no way HH can abrogate our Constitution going beyond the prescribed limit of years for Party Presidency. The Convention must be held and we democratically elect a new leader. The man came in through the back door (money) and we have all seen the mess. 2021 WILL BE A WALK OVER ON PF. We shall overcome, but not with HH. As you know, I honestly hate this persistent LOSER including his style of losing(Always)!

    • A Tonga will forever have tunnel vision. Will he think any different? NO .Dull Dull chaps. if you have lived among them you will know what am talking about.

  35. Dundumwezi people should know that their MP is busy preparing his account with another bank for his monthly allowances and busy driving to Manda hill and will soon get a Pajero, meanwhile they are languishing in abject poverty!!! He will be talking, talking, talking and accusing the ECL of not taking development to your area and blocking every step that Lungu wants to take to constituency, while the people he is claiming to speak for are dying!!! Wake up and support ECL to bring development to your area… That is my free advice… Thank you.

  36. Foolish remarks ka Edgar Sing’ombe. Lungu’s dundumwezi remarks is solidarity statement and assurance you idi0t that it does not matter how you voted development is coming.

  37. Tongas are just a group of ungrateful morons. No matter what you do for them they will always behave like that. The late Mwanawasa told them that as far as they were going to be voting the way they do, they will always remain behind like butttocks.

  38. Typical ungracious statement from yet another bitter member of UPND who can not get over the fact that HH has lost them yet another election.

  39. MP Chigombe, what a shame. You are to bring develpment to Dundumwezi, you expect the whole President ECL to come and bring development to your 33,000 for you and 252 voters for the President ECL. Its your duty bwana, mwala ilauma. You are a dissapointment. If you have no clue how to lead keep blaming others ,with such type of an MP what good can come out of Dundumwezi ?

  40. We all should support President ECL with hard work within the areas we find ourselves. We should also have accommodating hearts.

  41. Dundumwezi people should know that their MP is busy preparing his account with another bank for his monthly allowances and busy driving to Manda hill and will soon get a Pajero, meanwhile they are languishing in abject poverty!!! He will be talking, talking, talking and accusing the ECL of not taking development to your area and blocking every step that Lungu wants to take to constituency, while the people he is claiming to speak for are dying!!! Wake up and support ECL to bring development to your area… That is my free advice… Thank you.

  42. This time we are highly prioritizing to develop the economy and the 7 provinces. Western and southern for their huge share in the previous term. We are also going to identify our next presidential candidate who will win the 2021 elections in a supa fashion.
    Upnd losers are always focusing on the 3 provinces to usher in a tribal leader but we are looking at a bigger picture. We may even get a Tonga as Pf candidate and see ho these tribalists will do.

  43. Singombe, you are a disgrace to yourself for the shallow articulation. You should be among the MPs who just sit in Parliament opposing without coming up with tangible contributions to help the people who voted for you. Every time your contribution is opposing, what do you expect as a leader in a constituency? Can you think out side the box? Don’t see anything opposition and HH as your final solution! We will never move forward with that type of thinking that is retrogressive, aiming at dividing the Zambian people. Can you reflect on anything before you make a comment because such comments are tantamount to the well being of our country, Zambia.

  44. we the villagers in maala have not forgotten the spearing of our folk and kin and burning of our huts we are going to the ICC from remedy….we shall not allow this to be done because we voted PF….as for MP for Dundu is best to offer what you think are solutions including how the regional drought can be addressed making comments that are unfounded just shows your still bitter chikonko mwikate…

  45. Well said Mutafela and it is true what late President Mwanawasa said tongas have remained behind with their leader hh like matako.

  46. Imwe ba MP you will be working with Mr.President Lungu for the next 5 years. And also getting handsomely paid by his government. The sooner some of these MPs from UNPD accept that Mr. Lungu is president the better . Your acceptance and respect will help you carry out your projects in your constituencies successfully. Am sure its painful working with someone you HATE? Pray to God to help you see the best in other people, and give you hearts to forgive the worst. And Love without expecting something. .If you look for the worst in anybody you will find it, but if you also decide to look for the good in people you will find it. . Hate and Bitterness is like buying poison and expecting someone else to die , on that it kills you who harbours it..

  47. But lungu should watch some tongas in UPND.They want to divide Zambia jst bcoz HH never won.Now they are saying they want Zambia to be divided so that HH can rule southern,western,Northwestern and parts of Ndola rural.This UPND party is a danger to national unity.HH came into politics thru tribalism and most Tongas are conviced that it’s high time they ruled themselves starting from police officers. Infact police force should checked properly.The police helped HH to rig in western,Northwestern and southern.There is serious problem in police force i.e tribalism.Ba Lungu should not trust police officers especially those from Bantustan. They even teargassed innocent pipo at heroes stadium. We thank God Zambia army were in control.Read Zambian watchdog.They are saying Lungu is a president…

  48. Parliamentary Disciplining Body should carpet this MP. How can one tell the President of any country not to go to a region because the people won’t welcome him! This is hooligan mentality and the MP is at the head of organising treasonous attitudes in the area. Send the Army in!

  49. President Lungu is Head of State and he can go anywhere in the country without getting permission from anyone let alone an M.P. The people of Dundumwenzi should be happy that the person they rejected is coming to see them. They must now pluck up courage and meet him. I look forward to a meaningful dialogue between the two.

  50. these pipo are only flustrated and they cant see anything good in others no matter wat! someone who is failing to appreciate a president for giving them 9 districts with equal share of funds wat mo an opposition an opposition party which is a non tonga party? these pipo can only change wen they start admitting thier wrongs

  51. You have the right to dislike HH and that is your choice, it has always been. It’s within your armpits to only like your own. We too love ourselves, we like our tribe cos God saw it good and fit that we must be Tongas to feed you with your menions.

  52. Just been listening to the Hot FM 12.00 hours, UPND have warned their newly elected MPs not to accept positions in the PF government, they risk being expelled. I asked myself who should be expelled from UPND, is it not HH who has lost five times.

  53. That’s why now some districts should be created in other regions that have not had an equal share, enough is enough. There are big villages in other areas with big populations that are fit to become districts unlike some that are just bushes no people.

    ECL if you want to win the Dundumwezi style do the right thing in these places as you promised during the campaign

  54. only people who have benefited from easy money thrown around can be grateful. no pf has been to dundumwezi since sata went there 6 years ago and still no delivery of any service has been carried out. They bwould be stupid to vote to remain in pf for nothing

  55. Go to your history check facts the late Harry Mwanga Nkumbula in 1968 general election in all constituencies in luapula and Northern provinces he got less than 5 votes while kaunda of unip was getting 1000 plus votes.check also in 2001 elections the late Anderson Mazoka was getting 50 votes in some constituencies in Northen province.The people you are insulting to day you will need them in future just it happened in 2006 that the late President Mwanawasa has to win the election with the votes from eastern province.one day HH will not stand as predident and it will happen that those standing one will come from Eastern and the other from say from munchinga do you think you will not need votes from the people you are insulting every day to day is president that you want what about…

  56. Shocking but probably not surprising!!! With this level of thinking, it would probably be a better idea to relocate the 252 from Dundumwezi to another more progressive area in Zambia than having to put up with this kind of thinking from little known or unknown rascals like Edgar Singombe.

  57. Singombe, you are a dander head. You think Hakainde will ever be president of Zambia! Forget, next time he will get even lower votes than he got in the last elections if at all he will be there. Is it not a parliamentarian who spear heads development in the constituency by lobbing government? Some of you opposition party MPs are just good at opposing without offering tangible solutions! You fail to engage government to bring development to your constituency because you are full of yourself. That arrogance will NEVER YIELD any positive solution to people in your constituency! You will always be shunning to engage government to carry out any developmental activity in your area. It is better you resign and allow other people who are sober to carry on. You are a Bitter and Pompous chap!

  58. It very unfortunate that the mp ca say wjat he said. If i was him i should not have commented Or last to comment, if its protest to lack of development, then some parts luapula, northern, muchinga copperbelt lusaka should not have voted for PF. PF government move capital to choma, roads done & other infracture but choma central did not vot for pf. Bottom road, monze niko rd, livingstone roads, itezhi tezhi rd, there aplaces far much better than dund, like nabwalya in mpika, chunda ponde, lundu, lwembe sandwe, mwanya, etc.
    Hard to reach, southerm t among the 4 out of 10 most developed in zambia

  59. It is wrong for the MP to assume the people of Dundumwezi are owned by UPND.

    Those people are Zambians just like any other zambian from any part of Zambia.

    As an MP, Edgar – MP is a leader who should do his part to improve the welfare of the people of Dundumwezi.

    As a president, Edgar – President is a leader who has to do his part to improve the welfare of all Zambians including the people of Dundumwezi.

    So, just as the president cannot claim ownership if the people of Dundumwezi as president of the country, the MP too had no right to claim ownership of them as MP of the area.

    Actually the mandate of the MP is only a small component of the mandate the president has over the area.

    So, the MP should not deny the people’ rights to interact with their head of state.

  60. Is DUndu the only place iwe? There are other places needing to be visited. What’s special about Dundu. It doesn’t matter whether MCS visited it 6 years ago, so what, I hope the President doesn’t visit that cursed village of backwardsness

  61. @Peace for Zambia, you make very sensible reading. Here, help me reconcile constitutional provisions 103(1) and 104 (3). Article 104 (3) states as follows: Where an election petition is filed against the incumbent, under Article 103 (1) … [end of quote]. Note that the referenced Article 103(1) provides for the petitioning of the president-elect, not the incumbent as purported by Article 104(3). Isn’t this a cross(mismatched) reference? I have struggled to wrap my mind around this, and ironically, I seem to be in the same boat as our revered prof Ndulo (refer to Ndulo’s last article on LT), particularly as it relates to the incumbent handing over power to the speaker in the initial ballot. Zikomo.

    • Article 103 deals with outcome of, and events following second ballot. Second ballot simply means the ballot that comes following the nullification of the first ballot or failure to attain 50% + 1 threshold.

      The first ballot dealt with under Article 101 while Article 102 deals with qualification to the second ballot.

      104(3) referring to 103(1) simply contextualizes and restricts the matter to the second ballot.

      As for the case which we had, it was under the first ballot, whose context is confined to Articles 101 & 102.

  62. Honorable, you are the one who can identify what your people really want as development. Lungu can’t bring something he doesn’t know. Suppose he brings a ship when you don’t have a sea to sail on.

  63. THERE’S AN URGENT NEED FOR DECENTRALIZATION SO THAT EACH REGION CAN WORK OUT THEIR OWN PRIORITIES. THIS FOOLISH MP, WHO IS SUPPOSED TO COME UP WITH A DEVELOPMENTAL PLAN FOR HIS AREA, NOW WANTS THE PRESIDENT TO THINK FOR HIM AT GUN POINT. ON WHAT GROUNDS DID HE WIN AS MP? WHAT DID HE SELL TO HIS PEOPLE?

  64. ECL IS PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. dUNUNAMWEZI IS BUT A SMALL AREA IN ZAMBIA AND VERY MUCH ZAMBIAN UNDER ECL. WHAT CONDITIONS ARE YOU GIVING THE HEAD OF STATE FOR HIM DUNDUMWEZI? YOU ARE CLOSING DOORS FOR YOUR AREA.

  65. At truth firstly u should know Tongas aren’t the ones feeding Zambia…if they were im sure non Tongas could have died,secondly Lusaka or Livingstone is not your land…it’s the land for Zambians,so If i want to live in maamba I can visit ba council they allocate me land,lusaka was not given to anyone because it’s Zambians land who agreed to place the capital there,same as electricity,tongas did not build Kariba dam..don’t be duffed so don’t expect us to beg u for electricity from anyone..we owe it…it’s Zambians making it 100? Zambian and not Tongan …if really u want to cut off the line I’d urge u find big dry trees and swing them over the cables but be warned the vaults are real and the electric shock will not understand your language BASA…so pliz
    For ur own sake don’t…

  67. @30Truth I was reading the 2006 Oct issue of the Post where Nawakwi accepted that the elections were free and fair but HH claimed otherwise citing unspecified flaws. Anyway let’s leave him alone.

  68. Singombe, in the first place, you are NOT FIT to be an MP going by your sentiments! You are too small and with NO power or authority to give conditions to President Edgar Chagwa Lungu! President ECL is president of Zambia NOT for Dundumwezi and NOT president for an opposition political party for a few arrogant chaps! Remember, Hakainde is NOT and will NEVER be president of Zambia. If you continue with him as your party president and with the current arrangement in your party (UPND), you will NEVER form government! Bitter and arrogant chaps are many in your party who DO NOT see beyond their nose. We have given you a similar buffoon who does things without giving it a thought! Singombe, your thinking is 100 years backward!
