UPND members have protested against having the presidential petition to be heard in chambers

Members said that the matter is of public concern and the world at large need to know the truth of what happened during the last Presidential election

The Members also claim that fears of having the matter heard in public is a clear indicator that the PF has been caught in their web of lies.

The members have vowed to use the law and now ensure that their matter is heard in public

Meanwhile Court police are pleading with UPND members to remain quite but members demand that the matter commences as the the country is waiting for what happened.

“There is no secret in this case ” demanded the members.

    • GBM in case you ‘ve forgotten this saying. Insanity is doing the same things over and over while expecting a different result. You can’t be featuring the same loser all the time and expect him win that is &stupidity or insanity. Brace yourself for yet another lose to a new comer in 2021.

    • It’s not insanity! There is a term they use about touching one’s body for some kind of pleasure. It is held in some health circles that it helps relieve depression and leads to high self esteem!

      That’s all I see in this case…

      I ll get back on here when I remember that term.

    • Has HH condemned the act of his cadres or he has commended them for the barbarian behavior?

      A normal citizen need not even be a leader to condemn such conduct.

      Anyone who delights in such is below the average ordinary citizen.

  2. These f.ools are now getting into my nerves. This case is dead and buried and we need to move on. The same party praises con-court and ECZ when they win and throws mad at them when they lose. Such inconsistennce is for mad people who have no regard for others.

    • What ever is happening is just an academic exercise. Its not a petition like the one the constitution outlines which should fall within 7days after Ecz announces the winner. This is just the courts discretion to meant to please these 1mbeciles but has nothing to change anything. No one in Zambia is interested in this madness. Source is Upnd media.

  4. I just keep on wondering if there is any one in UPND who is sane. The petition is dead, buried and eaten up by maggots, what is in court is the so called RIGHT TO BE HEARD whatever that means. You people in UPND your leadership is taking advantage of your ignorance by giving fake hope that the petition will be heard. Believe you me NO ONE IS GOING TO HEAR YOUR PETITION, not even the ICJ or ICC. Go to the convention to replace hh with someone sensible. As long as you stick to him, forget about getting votes from northern, luapula, muchinga, eastern, copperbelt and lusaka provinces in 2021 and the electoral commission is not going anywhere.

    • THE QUESTION IS; WHY SHOULD A CASE THAT ATTRACTS NATIONAL INTEREST BE HEARD IN CHAMBERS? WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENT SCARED OF? HE WHO HAS NOTHING TO HIDE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO PROVE HIMSELF INNOCENT.
      SEMANTICS ABOUT THIS ISSUE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED ROOM HERE BECAUSE THE GAINS TOWARDS A FULLY FLEDGED DEMOCRACY ARE AT STAKE NOW THAN EVER BEFORE.
      CALL A SPADE A SPADE AND THE RULE OF LAW SHOULD PREVAIL IF ANY SANITY HAS TO RETURN TO THIS COUNTRY.
      RIGHT NOW THERE IS JUST A GANG OF FORCEFUL DEPLORABLE S PRESSING ON THE PRESIDENT TO DO THE WRONG THINGS AND THESE ARE THE ONES HE MUST DEAL WITH. HE IS A LAWYER AND WILL DO WELL TO VINDICATE HIMSELF AND WILL BE SUPPORTED BECAUSE WE KNOW THEY HAVE HIJACKED HIM FOR PERSONAL GAIN. JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL.

  5. 2021minus 2017 time is reducting and you’re still talking about a lost case. Don’t cry when you lose again. It’s time for you to start going around the country campaigning take advantage of the hard times people are going through.

  6. We said b4 and will say. It is a mistake to make the AG lead lawyer in this Petition. The AG is not a Constitutional lawyer so he is going to have a torrid 4 days confronted by renowned Constitutional lawyers like SC Sangwa and others. The AG wants hearing in Chambers becoz he is fearing to make a fool of himself. The AG will be looking like a Zombie in Circus Movie

    • @8.1 STOP DISPLAYING YOUR CAREFREE ATTITUDE. THIS COUNTRY HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXCEL IN MANY ASPECTS BUT THE DREAM OF MOST ZAMBIANS IS BEING KILLED IN THE BUD. AMOS WAYAYA AND YOUR KAIZER TULU (OR IS IT TIEF…LOL) REMEMBER POSTERITY IS THERE TO JUDGE ALL. IDI AMIN WAS THERE, HE THOUGHT HE HAD IT ALL…HE DIED A DESTITUTE! MOBUTU JOSEPH SESESEKO WAS THERE. HE DIED RUNNING, JERRY RAWLINGS,…..NAME THEM..THEIR END IS NOT SOME PATH ONE WOULD DESIRE TO FOLLOW. PF IS FULL OF PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE THAT THINGS MOVE BY MERELY MAKING A PRONOUNCEMENT OR GIVING ORDERS WITHOUT PLANNING, NOOO. YOU NEED BRAINS AND BRAINS THAT MUST BE ABLE TO SEE THINGS FROM AFAR…MAYBE 30 YEARS AHEAD. PLEASE SAVE ZAMBIA FROM DESTRUCTION! WE ARE HEADING NO WHERE AT ALL. GIVE HH A CHANCE.

    • Bemba theif.

      This is about future elections, democracy and the rule of law in our country.
      This has nothing to do with HH or UPND. citizens have the right to know the truth .

      All you bembas are intrested in is continued stealing with media blackouts.

  10. Thanks to Peter Sinkamba (Green Party) and Antonio Mwanza (FDD) for providing checks and balances to the governance of the country. With UPND camped in courts, the noises from these two citizens is all we have to keep the govt in check.

  12. So we move on to 2021 with matters unresolved and come the next elections the same vote thefts happen even on a grander scale and more brazen impunity? A great injustice was done against the zambian people and issues need to be unravelled. I bet when you PF zealots hear what really transpired in the last elections, you will be left dumfounded!

    • PEOPLE ARE SAYING “WHO TOLD YOU HH WON?” BUT YOU STILL INSIST THE VOTE WAS STOLEN. DO YOU REMEMBER CLAUSE 5 OF ARTICLE 101? THERE! ITS KAPUT! BUT THE COURTS IN THEIR MAGNANIMITY HAVE GIVEN YOU A CHANCE TO HEAR THE PETITION IN CHAMBERS AND YOU CRY FOUL! WHAT A PITY.

  13. This case has lost the steam and meaning it was suppose to have. I wish the UPND lawyers had presented all the evidence to court and then if the Concourt had chickened out that there is no time to continue with the case, then we would have supported this cause.
    As it stands today, the support would be in the interest of the ongoing constitution amendments as well. We would be interested in interrogating the time assigned to hear a presidential petition.
    Is the time adequate? Did the Concourt contribute to wasting time in hearing UPNDs’ presidential petition or they committed ample time but the same time was squandered by the counsel for the plaintiff or defense?
    Indeed it is now an academic exercise!

  14. WE NEED TO HEAR THE TRUTH AS IT HAPPENED WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND TO HEAR WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR VOTES. SURELY IF IT WAS TRANSPARENT THEN THERE IS NO NEED TO HIDE IN CHAMBERS. WE DEMAND THE TRUTH SO WE CAN MOVE ON.

  17. The high court decides to hear the preliminary issues or whatever, in chambers, and what do UPNDonkeys say? Ati what is the government afraid of? For Gods sake the person hearing the case is Justice Mwila Chitabo not the goverment.
    And the Donkeys were even made to riot! They were dispersed by police teargas, what! Police have you run of live bullets? Shoot the bastados dead, reduce their numbers, bati tinka!

  22. For as long as you do not pin point the problem the solution remains evasive. It will never be achieved. UPND has al ot of money it seems to go around in circles. Or is it the lawyers doing exercises in the legal gymnasia. Whatever the case, their is nothing really to be achieved except an appearance of fighting for their own personal beliefs. Fighting for such is not wrong but not when the design is to undermine a sitting government or indeed the judiciary. If MR. HH is indeed a saint, then he must know that pride goes before a fall. To pursue personal ambition at the expense of peace and order in the land and respect for the powers that be is the height of pride. One shudders to think were this may take HH even if it so happens that he later became president. Sin always seems to find…

  23. Sin always seems to find us out. In doing so, it needs no helping hence the saying,” give him enough rope to hung himself.” President Lungu should concentrate on the land and its economy and let juniors correct UPND’s miss information campaigns. As for HH, the country is more important than you sir. Thats all the electorate want to see in a leader. One who places nation before himself. Can you really be such a person sir? How do you answer? At this rate, I am concerned.
