Mulenga Sata with Edward Mumbi
FILE: Mulenga Sata with Edward Mumbi (L)

The antagonism and hate speech spread by UPND President Hakainde Hichilema is a danger to national unity, peace and stability, Edward Mumbi, his former spokesperson has said.

It was impossible he said for HH to win a national election given the limited regional support that he commanded.

“You can’t have a party with membership from one region and you expect to win a national election. As long as UPND maintains its current status, it will be very difficult to win an election because you need a party with a national character,” he said.

On Tuesday, Mr. Hichilema told a Commonwealth delegation that there could have been mayhem in Zambia had the UPND allowed its supporters to go on the streets after his victory was stolen and challenged the international community to be proactive in the way it handled election matters as opposed to waiting until political situations became hostile in countries.

Mr. Mumbi said that the same institutions he was trying to hoodwink into believing that votes were taken away from him declared the 2016 polls free and fair.

He said in as much as losing an election was painful, it was important for Mr. Hichilema to exercise caution in the manner he was painting the country to the outside world.

He explained that the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) was the only institution mandated by law to preside over elections in Zambia and declare the winner contrary to Mr. Hichilema’s assertions that the ruling party doctored the outcome of the results.

He also said that it was insincerity of the highest order for Mr. Hichilema to allege that only the PF perpetuated violence during campaigns as both parties were at the receiving end of the scourge, a move which prompted President Edgar Lungu to institute a committee of inquiry so that Zambians could know who the real culprits were.

Instead of being antagonistic over losing the election, Mr. Hichilema would win kudos from Zambians if he could let by-gones be by-g0nes and come to terms with his loss rather than finding solace in complaining that UPND victory was stolen.

“It is disingenuous for Mr. Hichilema to lie to international communities such as the Commonwealth that his victory was stolen from him and that only the PF perpetuated violence when the same international organizations he is lying to observed the elections and declared them as free and fair.

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema is so economical with the truth about the 2016 election that he can afford to mislead the international community that victory was stolen from him, says his former spokesperson Edward Mumbi.

There was need for Mr. Hichilema to show leadership and civility in the manner he was articulating issues, said Mr. Mumbi.

    • Oh please, give us break! You think if Lungu had won that election we could have been coughing today..c’mon!…This chap just like Lungu do not have a heart for Zambians. Who doesn’t know that Lungu lost that election. Tell it your own PF cadres for self appeasement. PF has managed to impose itself on Zambians and Zambia is doomed, back where we started in 1991. For me now, its me and my family chapwa!

      To me this means that Hyena Hyena is a very dull id1ot masquerading as an intellectual! How couldn’t he realize that the Commonwealth were part of the elections as observers?

      Disingenuous meaning-dishonest,insincere,untruthful,deceitful,hypocritical,misleading,duplicitous and the one I like the most DEVIOUS!

      In summary this HH id1ot is fit for the incinerator!

  2. Another job seeker hoping for bread crumbs from Lungu. If Lungu didn’t steal the election why isn’t the issue put to rest through a petition? Doesn’t this Mumbi see that this is the only way to prove that, thief as Lungu is but he didn’t steal the election? Why is everybody still farting around this simple issue? How can such a small country have so many stup!d people? Well this won’t go away. It’s not only HH and UPND but most Zambians want to know if the thief actually didn’t steal in this case.

    • @MP steals market land in Choma!

      Lets get things in correct perspective. You are saying because this British chap said Britain “…has recognised the current government that was in place” it means the petition must never be heard in a court in Zambia? Why not? Don’t you think it would be easier for us to recognise Lungu as president if the court could pronounce he won fair and clean? Look at it this way: most of us think he stole the election. His background as a convicted thieving lawyer and a violent thug who hates democracy are factors that screams the petition be heard.

    • @ 3.2 Wantanshi,

      Let us pay particular attention to the word Mumbi has used, ‘disingeneous’.

      You see HH and you his supporters are supposed to accommodate basic logic in the way you approach matters.

      For 15 days, which is the allowable time, HH refused to talk about his case. He chose to talk about preliminaries to spend time.

      After the 15 years was over and the case expired, he asks two questions:

      1. Have I been heard or not?
      2. Have might rights not been violated.

      Did HH want ECL to speak for him so that his case could be heard?

      This is why Mumbi used the term ‘disingeneous’.

  5. UPND morons have resurfaced after going into hibernation when their small God HH was being lumbersted here(on LT) for telling lies to the commonwealth, now that a former member who is very objective has spoken, they will shower him with unprintables. Mumbi is 100% correct you can,t win a national election with 3.5 provinces out of 10.Surely how do these human beings think?

  6. @Lombe why go to court when the petition has already been thrown out. which court and who is supposed to go to court since ECL has already been sworn as a sole president of Zambia may be HH should go to court with chimbwi (hyena) like in the Kaunda era where people used to vote against a frog.

  7. Mumbi is stating a fact…Whether hes looking for a job or not, the truth is that NO elections where stolen from anyone. If HH thinks by complaining day in day about the electioo]ns would win him some simpathy, hes mistaken. Instead he is now irrirtating us with his childish complaints about he elections.

    GBM is looking more wise than HH. Grow up man

  9. The problem with UPND cadres is that, who ever advises their childish president to them he is looking for a job and they think they have the monopoly of wisdom when all they spew out is rubbish. Elections are gone and no court will entertain their childish claims of a stolen election victory. They will make all sorts of noise until kingdom comes meanwhile 2021 is drawing near and near.

  10. They were given a chance to go to court 14 days and extra but they failed completely to present their case.
    No international body has come to condemn the govt on the issue of the Concourt because UPND were given their chance but due to concetrating more on the usual pettiness and playing the victim their case failed – no one to blame but themselves.
    2021 they will have the same problem these Dunderheads!
    Zambia deserves a better opposition than this!

  12. To borrow the words of blogger “montana”

    Ignorance is bliss! Some PF Bloggers don’t understand. The UPND Petition was “dismissed” on a 14 day technicality which is illegal at Law. To make matters worse 14 days in terms of the law is 14 working days ending 8th Sept 2016. Concourt has no powers to dismiss the Petition without hearing and determining it. Court was supposed to declare a Winner but they failed to do so. Concourt also forgot that the old Bill of Rights still exist and the High Court administers it and that Petitioners have Rights to be heard in Court. Legally the Petitioners have a very strong case and would win at ICJ without a doubt. The fact that Lungu refused to handover the Presidency to the Speaker of Parliament during the Petition Hearing process disqualifies Lungu…

  20. Mumbi should answer the question. If Lungu won this Election why has he failed for 6 months to prove this in Court? Lungu says the Luapula Votes made him win and meet the 50% + 1 vote threshold, so why doesn’t Lungu want to produce this evidence in Court? Mumbi chooses to ignore the Petition. Why? The guilty are very..very afraid. Why has Lungu strenuously blocked the Petition Hearing? He has done this for a reason. Lungu knows that he was not democratically, legally and Constitutionally elected. Lungu is Illegitimate and clinging to power illegally. ICJ at Trial will prove this.

  22. This upnd people have no shame. Can you convince mumbi and all of us how you expected to win a national election with support from 3.5 provinces out of 10? Don’t just insult Edward because he was with you and knows you inside out and perhaps even decided to leave because he saw your tribal inclined support could not win you the Presidency. Be rest assured all upnd supporters that another defeat and a terrible one so awaits you in 2021 because Lungu is standing again. This time if you beat our people in your province and burn their houses, we shall do exactly what Nigerians are doing to South Africans living in Nigeria to revenge xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in South Africa. Don’t say you were not warned.

  23. Indeed we prepared to go to court not that HH had won but because we felt the elections were marred with irregularities and a re-run that is what we hoped for . Newly crowned heroes said they had unearthed stuffed ballots, others said the talling had been changed others said and said… All this was presented to our lawyer malita mu ship way, she advised we had a very strong case. As the days progressed we brought in legal giants some from retirement they argued we needed more time and better evidence but no one listened. Even HH became a ‘lawyer’ when he saw an opportunity!

The man your leader is uninspiring and uncharismatic, had he not siphoned and benefited immensely from privitisation he would’ve been a complete non entity. Listen out of greed and a serious flaw in character he turned down the PF-UPND alliance which was going to be a good thing for Zambia as that was going to root out the tribal tendencies in UPND and make it a truly national party but he wanted it all just like the proverbial Hungry Hyena that jumped into a well because he wanted the bone in the reflection even though he already had one in his mouth-in the end the cretin drowned.

    If you won the presidency you would welcome any court scrutiny to poverty to the country you did not steal the election. Especially if unity of the country is at stake.

    But Strangly lungu and the kaponya suppoters seems to be afraid of the petition as if 14 days will change the evidence.
