Police in Eastern Province have launched manhunt for United Party for National Development (UPND) National Deputy Chairperson for Youth and Sports development Michael Chuzu for issuing a statement that the UPND does not recognise President Edgar Lungu as a Republic President.

Mr Chuzu, who is a Chipata based resident, is wanted by the police for issuing a statement on Chipata Television (CTV) alleging that the opposition political party does not recognise President Lungu as Republican President.

Eastern Province Police Commissioner Alex Chilufya said yesterday that police were looking for Mr Chuzu for issuing such statement to the media.

Mr Chilufya said police have managed to obtain footage regarding Mr Chuzu on what he issued on the local television station.

“Police are looking for Michael Chuzu for issuing statement that the party does not recognise President Edgar Lungu as Republic President. This man is on run and hiding but we shall fish him out soon so that he can answer to the charges,” he said.

Last Friday, Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini said there was no point for some UPND members of Parliament (MPs) to be in denial that President Lungu was the Head of State.

Dr Matibini since advised all parliamentarians to avoid wasting time on a fact that cannot change because Mr Lungu was duly elected as Republican President.

The Speaker said only President Lungu could be referred to as His Excellency and not any political leader in Zambia because he was the Head of State.

Dr Matibini said during the Vice President’s question time in Parliament when UPND Choma Central MP Cornelius Mweetwa continuously referred to the President as Mr Lungu.

  1. So what? He is free to say that. 75% of the population doesn’t recognise Lungu as a legitimately elected president.

    • So why is he on the run if he is free to say that? Only the guilty are afraid. Or maybe you are prepared to bail him out once he is thrown behind the iron gate?

      A minor correction: “75% dont…”

    • Queen democracy is about accepting the will of the majority. That is democracy and maturity. As far as we can see UPND is immature and thrives on lies. How do you insist on accusing other of stealing your votes when you cant even show how many votes were stolen, where, by whom and how? What were you agents in the polling stations doing when votes were being stolen? The truth is nothing was stolen. it is just that the majority do not like UPND.

      Finland, Sweden demand return of donations to farmers’ union amid claims of corruption

      World Bulletin / News Desk
      Sweden and Finland on Wednesday demanded the return of $34 million from the Zambia National Farmers’ Union (ZNFU) amid allegations of misappropriation.

      David Wiking, the deputy head of bilateral development cooperation at the Swedish embassy, said audits at the union had revealed money misused and stolen by senior ZNFU officials.

      “The accounting report which the ZNFU produced when queried cannot be relied on because it is not supported by documentary evidence to support the claim and was marred with serious contradictions,” he told a news conference in Lusaka.

    • Which 75? of people are those, you mean Dundumwezi makes 75??

      President Lungu got 50.35? of the vote wile HH had only 47.6?. this may ply that only 0.6? of voters may not recognise the victory of President Lungu.

      Remember that even of the 47.6? who voted for HH, 47? know that HH lost the election even though they voted for him. Thus less than 1? may have that problem of failure to understand democracy like HH and GBM.

      Even the people in Dundumwezi know that kumavoti there is winning and losing. They are shocked that people who claim to be educated can’t understand basic election concepts.

      Cornelius was one of the worst tribalists even when he was a student at UNZA that bad behaviour has sadly continued!!! What a shame!!!

      The govt must find a away of dealing with this threat! If it means declaring all UPND seats vacate so be it, if it means banning UPND so be it! We won’t be taken for a ride by a group of bitter tribalists!

    • @1.1 Exactly, what’s the charge?
      He is on run because justice does not exist in your
      country. When they catch him, he will be lucky if he is
      hauled before a judge. His fate has been decided by the police.
      The commissioner of police is shamelessly hunting down political
      offenders, instead of real criminals.

    • Okay. Lets be serious here. Are you telling me if 100,000 people say they did not recognize Mr. Lungu as the legitimate winner August 11 polls then police will go hunting for these people instead of hunting for thieves and criminals?
      The real problem is not those not recognizing Mr. Lungu but Mr. Lungu refusing to prove he won transparently and fair without manipulation especially that the events during the vote count are what are causing people to question his legitimacy. Once Mr. Lungu proves without reasonable doubt that he truly won then for sure UPND is not to say anything so please instead of chasing innocent people who have the right to recognize whom they feel was legitimately elected advise PF to prove their presidential won these elections.

      Is LUNGU a god such that anyone who refuses to worship him deserves punishment? LUNGU has enough worshipers i.e. PF00LS from N/E Rhodesia & migrant settlers on copperbelt & lusaka compounds.

      Which University are you at? What I know and happens to be a fact is that Lungu lost the last elections at both of the country’s highest learning institutions. Unless you’re studying at one these tuntemba universities where you just go to buy degrees while lying to yourself that you’re studying.

  6. 1Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.2Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you willbe commended.4For the one in authority is God’s servant for yourgood. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.5Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only…

How dull can somebody be to charge us with seditious practices when we are publicly in court saying Lungu you stole our victory. The papers are in court,” Mr Hichilema said.

  10. The police are being overzealous for nothing. Lungu doesn’t care if he is recognized as president or not. He has been inaugurated and a few dictators witnessed the ritual and that’s enough for him. The police should not force people to recognize a person they see as a thief. This perception that Lungu is dishonest will characterize his presidency but of course he doesn’t mind.

      Equally you have the right as an individual (in your own house) not to pronounce your recognition of ECL as president but when you are in public the law says there is a president and that president is ECL.
      There is a difference between a petition/protest (which was time bound) and anarchy.

When the PVT started pouring into the secretariat we didn’t understand; we debated what to do Mushipe advised us we had a good case, but when we took what we thought was evidence to senior lawyers we were advised we had a weak case…we all demanded answers we thought with a sympathetic concot the best would be re-run; but when we didn’t go through we thought with an extension of time we might gather something to disrupt the process…but alas soon the witch hunt began now we don’t know where to look… we look at each other with strange eyes…we lost again.

Ofcourse the wounds are still fresh,but if you have a chance to interact with the top UPND leadership,better start working on those areas that cost you this year’s elections. Chiluba & Sata beat an incumbent govt,you can also do it.But bear in mind that to beat a champion,you must “annihilate” them and not on points.

  13. Right thinking Zambians must keep these events in mind. UPND should never be allowed to rule Zambia. It’s a bunch if cowards on the run. Catch and imprison. As for Mweetwa (note I skipped the Hon. Title for just deserts served on him), he should be disciplined by Parliamentary body responsible for member conduct. We cannot condone such a show of ill manner between our Leaders in OUR Parliament especially against our Democratically elected President, His Excellency President Lungu. If they don’t recognise the President, remove them from Parliament.

Reminder: after losing HH has started calling easterners as mice eaters, taking a short break from his previous mantra of monkeys in a maize field.

Only blind followers can support his forced ascent to presidency.

Many, including Donald Trump have voiced this publicly and none has been hunted down for arrest. It won’t be long before Zambians are forced to wear clothes covered with Lungu’s name and sing songs in his praise. Some people right now including his relatives think they are spared from Lungu’s wrath because they are PF or relations. In a matter of time they too will be hunted down over anything.

Each country in the world has laws to protect the majority interest against an agitating minority. whether you talk of uk, Germany, france, Italy the seat of the Christian faith, all of them have an obnoxious law variously called the state security act, public order act, anti-terrorism act and so-on-and-so-forth. this the law these hooligans are courting.

    Even in the bible Jesus said Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and Give to God what belongs to God. Jesus recognized that though the Roman Empire was not liked by some Jews; they still had authority over Israel and all citizens had to comply with that authority. By the way all Authority on earth is ordained by God and for a reason.

    Sweden and Finland on Wednesday demanded the return of $34 million from the Zambia National Farmers’ Union (ZNFU) amid allegations of misappropriation.
    David Wiking, the deputy head of bilateral development cooperation at the Swedish embassy, said audits at the union had revealed money misused and stolen by senior ZNFU officials.
    “The accounting report which the ZNFU produced when queried cannot be relied on because it is not supported by documentary evidence to support the claim and was marred with serious contradictions,” he told a news conference in Lusaka.

  36. Why are they looking for him when All UPND members say the same thing and even Lungu says he does not care even if we do not acknowledge him as President.

  37. Recently HH passed a derogatory statement about Easterners as mice eaters and corrupt and that they stole his votes in order to put a fellow mice eater in power. I was just watching the ZNBC news and on the screen comes an easterner Malthews Jere introduced as Livingstone MP. And I wondered how it feels to be an easterner in UPND among majority tongas. Do they trust you? Do they allow you to participate in party affairs? Then the MP talks about the need to make Livingstone a tax free zone in order to boost tourism. Then I ask myself, but this MO is asking fir incentives from the Lungu/PF government which his party does not recognise. Then I realise how thick and stooopid UPND leaders ar. Then finally I myself, wont this MO be expelled soon fir being ngoni from eastern? We wait for HH to…

  42. Okay. Lets be serious here. Are you telling me if 100,000 people say they did not recognize Mr. Lungu as the legitimate winner August 11 polls then police will go hunting for these people instead of hunting for thieves and criminals?
    The real problem is not those not recognizing Mr. Lungu but Mr. Lungu refusing to prove he won transparently and fair without manipulation especially that the events during the vote count are what are causing people to question his legitimacy. Once Mr. Lungu proves without reasonable doubt that he truly won then for sure UPND is not to say anything so please instead of chasing innocent people who have the right to recognize whom they feel was legitimately elected advise PF to prove their presidential won these elections.

  43. Africa is such a backward continent. Some of its ignorance is beyond redeemable. Just because the other million Zambia are not talking is not proof that they Recognize Mr. Lungu. May I say that based on contest elections, no human being can force dissenters to recognize Lungu. May be ZP should begin x-raying the minds of Zambia about Lungu. They would need 1000 prisons to contain all them. At this rate, Africa will never develop.

  45. Am wandering why this government is doing this……you are the president for cryng out lound,you are the one having the instruments of power!!!! deal with real issues at hand and stop strungling with dreamers. There is a salary crisis for the civil servants look into that, we have thousands of teachers awaiting deployment,we have cases of money being misused by the officials of the Zambia Farmers Union; deal with these matters.There are a lot of serious matters that the president needs to attend to instead of wasting time with people living in dream lands.

  47. Why do we continuously equate the presidency with a choice of God? You are only lucky if you get a leader who is God-fearing in deed and in influence. Other than that, you are fated with what you vote for. Stop this idea of believing that because 50+1 won the day then God is now on their side; otherwise what a God!?

    • Not all of us are Tonga wabona! You have been brainwashed by your leaders to think like that! We are all over the country and we wanted Haleisa Haleisa to rule. That is why when you insult us, you are insulting 1.7 million known voters plus the stolen votes = 2 million plus!
      Suck on that!

  50. Comment: I marvel at the ignorance of most people, democracy does not mean you can say any nonsense you feel like. there are laws that must be observed in any system. some people just say things while standing on other people’s words. it’s not easy to rig an election, when you loose just accept and strategize your next move. As opposition Keep checks on the government and ensure it fulfills it’s campaign promises to the people.

  53. zoona u chimbwi ni matenda yo ipa nga ko.president lungu is not recorgnised as president of zambia.this is a strait forward issue.it is even officially disputed in the courts of law. its there.
    why just victimise innocent pipo??
    even the PF know that lungu is not recognised as such by not allowing the due process of the law to take place.there has been no case hearing over this matter otherwise ,the evidence to that effect is overwhelming. let the courts allow a hearing,u will prove that fact.
