The opposition UPND has scooped most of the local government and mayoral seats in by elections held on Thursday 17th November 2016.

The elections saw the UPND grab the Mukuba ward seat in Nkana Constituency with its candidate Graddy Simukoko polling 438 beating PF’s Gilbert Mushota who received 361.

An independent candidate Chibwe Kaputo secured 138 while another candidate Dorica Lungu polled 32 votes.

And the UPND has scooped Chisanga Ward in the newly created Ngabwe District of Central Province.

The opposition party has also scooped all District and ward by elections in the North-Western Province.

In Kalumbila in North Western Province, the UPND won mayoral seat with its candidate in the newly created district with 3,504 while PF had 542 and People’s Alliance for Change had one vote.
The UPND has also won the Council Chairmanship in Mwandi district.

The elections in three of the four Districts have been necessitated following the creation of Senga Hill, Kalumbila, and Mushindamo districts, while the vacancy in Mwandi District occurred due to the nullification of the election of Ms. Gilnard Mafuti as Council Chairperson for the district.

The vacancies in the 14 wards have arisen from deaths of councillors, errors on ballot papers and uncontested elections .

    • This is as a result of PF not using dununa reverse as a rigging formula. Clearly this also shows how visionless PF of Lungu & his bandits to be unpopular with the electorates!
      Chulu & Isaacs with the inept ECZ who have since lost credibility, did not interfere in manipulating the actual election results using bandits like Chavula of Uganda.
      Only UPND can restore the dignity of the country not visionless & violent PF who have since tramped upon media freedom. Well done UPND!

    • The picture has always been the same apart from Nkana. Nothing to excite people with a little bit of common sense.

    • PF losing in Kitwe? One would expect 3 months after the general elections euphoria would either maintain the same pattern or the opposition would further lose ground.
      This means either PF has performed badly in 3mths or they rigged the general elections.

  2. THIS IS A CLEAR LITMUS TEST WHICH CONFIRMS THAT ZAMBIANS VOTED FOR UPND AND HH FOR A MAJORITY VOTE. WHY THEN IS LUNGU AT STATE HOUSE? WHY IS PF IN GOVERNMENT?

  3. UPND is the biggest and most popular single party in Zambia. PF is smaller than UPND, without a PF alliance with MMD!

    Actually, PF’s performance in the last two elections was only boosted by MMD. MMD is now the godfather of PF. Withou MMD, PF cannot be in government, as it stands now!

    • But UPND is also in an alliance MMD – Nevers Mumba faction. So PF and UPND have equal shares of MMD; they have actually swallowed up MMD and that is why even the numbers of MPs have now almost doubled for both parties.

    • We can actually impeach this Lungu guy given that he had occupied the President’s office while the petition was still active. Remember no one is above the law.

  4. Stealing 2016 Elections, high cost of living, unhappiness among the people is beginning to negatively impact on the Election Riggers. This will worsen over the years. Given the election results remain disputed very little support will come from the International Community. Political legitimacy has numerous benefits which Zambia will not get until the Election Petetion is amicably resolved and Zambians unite to move the country forward. We should learn from recent election of Donald Trump in the USA. Even though Donald Trump did not win the popular vote Hilary Clinton and the Democratic Party accepted his victory based on the Electoral College vote. Once the UPND Petetion is properly disposed off as Zambians we can unite and move forward and develop our country. Without resolving the…

  10. this is a wake up call to PF especially on the copperbelt. my advice
    1. let the provincial minister tame his tongue, you cant call yo friends criminals today , the following day you are asking them to campaign and vote for your candidate.
    2. as much there could have been some illegalities on the land issue, the issue has to be sorted with wisdom, strategically and with tender carefulness or it may decampaign the PF
    3. let the public officers such as town clerk be respected even if there are some wrongs in their localities. you cant undress a TC for ndola in public and finish him in public; pipo are looking and seeing.
    4. you cannot do without the locals, they vote and they devote. repect them, dont tell them off, ‘I WILL DEMOLISH YOUR PROPERTIES AND I WILL NOT COMPENSATE YOU. most…

    • What unites PF is illegality like sharing land,GRZ contracts and for the big boys ransacking the treasury all these have been dangerously depleted,the unprecendented lying is also not convincing anymore so how is the maka party going to survive.

  12. Opposition UPND has scooped most of the local government and mayoral seats in by elections held on Thursday 17th November 2016. Now isn’t that delightful, given the fact that PF scoped most to the Parliamentary Seats..Not all was Lost, learn to see positives in all negative situations, and stop with the hating and complaining, …WHEN LIFE GIVE YOU LEMONS,MAKE LEMONADE!!!!!!!!!!!.

  13. The only thing upnd has won here is a ward in Nkana and not those seats from bantustan province-N/Western.even in 2021 those 3 and half provinces will vote for upnd.so what upnd must be doing now making its party strong in 6 and half provinces where it has been losing since 1998.right now many PF voters are not happy and they stayed away from voting yesterday.but if PF delivers then in 2021 we shall maintain them in power!!SO HH SHOULD NOT BE HAPPY WITH THESE RESULTS AS WHEN IT MATTERS MOST,WE SHALL TEAM UP IN PF STRONGHOLDS AND DEFEAT HIM ONCE MORE IN 2021!!

    • @20 Njimbu, there will be NO TEAMING UP of any sort as PF is ALREADY IMPLODING and there is NO WISDOM in the leadership TO PLAN AHEAD to face 2021 with confidence!! Lungu is still WORKING HARD TO PLEASE AREAS WHERE PF IS HATED AT THE EXPENSE OF HIS PARTY’s STRONGHOLDS!! THOSE 3 PROVINCES HAVE VOWED NEVER TO VOTE PF as can be seen in these local government results! So WHAT TEAMING UP when Lungu has NEGLECTED HIS REAL VOTERS, taking meaningful Projects that can end poverty to “Barosteland” and appointing MMD to KEY MINISTRIES!! My prediction is ” A THIRD FORCE” will be born for 2021- it will mainly comprise disaffected PF members,new entrants into politics and those tired with UPND leadership and perpetual losses!!

  14. We expected this as was the case in August polls where PF manuplated the polls. UPND won the august elections squarely thats why they did not avail the G12 official declaration form. PF are liars, in Chipata, a pack of fertilizers has been reduced to 2 bags without seed despite the promises prior to august elections that they are pro-poor?

  15. Congratulations to UPND. They should keep building on this success. Avoid antagonizing government, avoid insulting the president, focus on recruiting more members, attract more sympathisers and lastly very important go for the convention 2 years before the next general elections in order to give whoever will be president enough time to go round the country. When they demonstrate that they are peaceful and genuinely have the Zambians at heart. I believe they can get the urban vote which seems to be the missing part this time. After all we are all Zambians and any party can form government if they become appealing to the Zambians.

  16. LT you are misleading this under 5 party and its supporters. This is a regional party and it will win all the seats in SP, WP and NWP and lose in the other provinces. The results were expected as all the elections are from their tribal regions. Nothing has changed here and lets wait for 2021.
    Please go to the convention, its almost two decades with same failures as your leaders.

  17. PF is losing ground due to Lungu.He’ll be arrested in 2021 .Most PF members are not happy with him and will see fire soon.He has never liked kambwili and Lubinda despite these two men liked by majority Pf members.We saw it when he was appointing ministers and we knew that he was going to fire kambwili or Lubinda. Nevertherless,let them be loyal to PF we’ll for them in 2021.Guy scott tried to sideline lungu but what happned we succeeded as a party in putting lungu.Even now we’ll succced in puting Kambwili or Lubinda.PF teinobe baba Lungu.If u chase real PF members then just know that 2021 UPND will arrest u.Can u imagine being arrested as a president.It’s so shameful to behave like this.We love PF but pipo are now wondering if u really love Sata’s pipo.We have hope in u but stop…

  19. When judge Chulu, Patricia Isaacs, Chavula and their Lozi spokesman (Akufuna) are no near the ballot boxes, one can be assured that true election results can be declared, announced and the actual winner pronounced.

    Do we really want to go to the ICJ or ICC when the results are material evidence of who won the August elections? Compatriots, it is clear that back teeth did not win those elections and the people he has jailed are collateral demage aimed at silencing UPND,.

  20. The story is misleading because PF have won more seats even no go areas such as NWP, SP WP . So I don’t see what this excitement is about.
