Zambia’s August 11, 2016 General Elections were held in a credible manner-Commonwealth Secretariat

Headlines Zambia’s August 11, 2016 General Elections were held in a credible manner-Commonwealth...

Patricia Scotland
Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland

The Commonwealth Secretariat has said that Zambia’s August 11, 2016 General Elections were held in a credible manner. This is contained in a letter addressed to President Edgar Lungu, dated March 16, 2017 by the Secretary General of the commonwealth Patricia Scotland.

Ms Scotland said that the elections were conducted in a credible, inclusive and orderly manner. Ms. Scotland has since assured President Lungu of her organization’s continued support to the country.

And Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba has dismissed as false insinuations that Southern African Development Community (SADC) had summoned President Edgar Lungu to explain himself over the elections which were conducted.

Mr Kalaba said that Zambia remains a credible state in good governance and the country seen massive investments as a result of the international community accepting president Lungu.

Mr Kalaba said that this was evidenced by the number of presidents who will be coming into the country for state visits. Mr Kalaba said the prime minister Ethiopia will visit Zambia on 29 march, 2017 for a state visit, to be followed by another state visit by the Togolese president and a week later another visit by the president of Madagascar.

Mr. Kalaba also announced that king Mswati has also invited president Lungu for a state visit later this year.

He was speaking in an interview with Zambian journalists in Swaziland at a one day SADC summit which has since closed.

Meanwhile, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Prime Minister Leonard She Okhundu said that his country respects Zambia for the peace it has continued to enjoy over the years and has asked for support to resolve that country’s political impasse. Zambia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Harry Kalaba, has said that nothing can come between the good relationship between Zambia and DRC.

The two ministers were speaking in an interview after they held a bilateral meeting at Royal Swazi Hotel on the side-lines of the on-going Southern African Development Community (SADC) Council of Ministers and extraordinary summit.

Mr Okhundu said the two countries share not only a border but same views on a number of platforms as well.

“Zambia and DRC are in good books and there is currently no spat going on between us,” he said.

He said they discussed a number of issues during the meeting, including how to grow the two countries’ economies and projects, which the two countries wanted to jointly undertake.

Mr Okhundu is hopeful that the two countries will continue having regular meetings and consultations to keep the tight relationship.

He said the two ministers also arranged to hold a joint meeting with Angola to discuss bilateral and multilateral issues.

Meanwhile, Mr Kalaba hopes his meeting with his Congolese counterpart will strengthen the relationship between the two countries further.

“Zambia and DRC are one and our people share the same values and we are honoured that we have continued to co-operate at both bilateral and multilateral levels,” he said.

Mr Kalaba thanked the DRC for supporting Zambia’s Albert Muchanga in elections at the African Union elections recently.

Mr Kalaba said President Lungu and his DRC counterpart, Joseph Kabila, will meet soon to discuss a number of issues affecting the two countries.

Last week, the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo protested over the presence of former Katanga Governor Moise Katumbi at the under-20 AFCON semi-finals between Zambia and South Africa at Heroes Stadium.

In a statement addressed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Zambia, the Congolese Embassy in Zambia stated that it was not right for the Zambian government to grant Mr. Katumbi an entry Visa into Zambia because he was facing charges before judicial authorities in his country.

  1. Colonialism is still alive and well if we have to get British stamp of approval for our elections.What did the African Union say? -that’s the one whose opinion matters.

    • Does reason and professional reports matter to fixated minds thriving on a wishful narrative that one Greg Mills would deliver them Government?

    • Does reason and professional reports matter to fixated minds thriving on a wishful narrative that one Greg Mills would deliver them Government?

    • I wonder what the UPND cadres would have said if the commonwealth said otherwise. The Up and Downs always want everything in their favour. Just a few weeks ago when the commonweath secretary visited their god, these kids from the tribal party were pissing themselves with happiness hoping they will get some support. There has been no election anywhere in the world that has been reversed by the courts after an election body declares the winner. Unless the fat boy and bitter u5 kid are hoping to make history. What kid of criminal even choses his own Judges

    • Does “credible manner” mean elections were not rigged or does it election were conducted peacefully?
      This letter doesn’t convincingly answer UPND questions that elections were rigged, hence I don’t expect any change in UPND stance on this matter.
      Why did they wait until now? FAKE NEWS!!!

    • The UPND and their lawyers are extremely incompetent.

      UPND and their lawyers lack understanding of basic law.

      The constitution in article 279 states as follows:

      (b)if the last day of the period is a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday (“excluded day”), the period shall include the next day;

      (c) where an act or a proceeding is directed or allowed to be done or taken on a specified day and that day is an excluded day, the act or proceeding shall be considered as done or taken in due time if it is done or taken the
      next day; and

      (d) where an act or a proceeding is directed or allowed to be done or taken within a time not exceeding six days, an excluded day shall not be counted in the computation of
      the time.

    • Now, anyone who does not understand this basic article cannot defend a case.

      The commencement of the case was on Friday when the petition was filed because the filing-in day was not an excluded day.

      Where the timeframe does not exceed 6 days, the excluded days are not counted in the computation of time.

      Otherwise the excluded day form part of the count – and in the case of the expired petition 14 days is clearly more than 6 days – thus all the excluded days ( weekends and holidays) were countable.

    • You cadres you are still searching for words to suit your loss. credible means credible, fair means fair, inclusive means inclusive. what more do you want? You will not find a dictionary which will tell you that “credible means rigged” I know that’s what you are looking for. Always aim at having a life beyond UPND

    • In the same statement, The Commonwealth says they are happy opposition has taken matter on disputed elections to court. The statement is a very carefully worded diplomatic piece that cannot be understood by your average PF airhead pamaka cadre

    • This letter was in Ms Scotland’s personal capacity which was addressed to ECL and not the Speaker of the National Assembly and not to the Zambian people.

    • Zambia invited the CommonWealth delegation and have remained membership in the Commonwealth and can quit anytime but they don’t, so its not Colonialism. the AU is so corrupt and useless so who cares what they say.

    • LT has conveniently forgotten to tell us the info in Scotland’s letter was released by Amos Chanda.

    • It’s your HH who said he was going to petition the Commonwealth over the elections and there he has his answer. He couldn’t go to the African Union, that’s quite obvious.

    • Press Statement released by State House, yeah like I would expect them to say something different? The source itself isn’t credible so how do you expect the story to be credible?

      And yes they may have been ‘conducted’ in a ‘fair’ and ‘credible’ manner (by African standards) in that no one died on the day of the elections but the results (which come at the end of ‘conduct’) were manipulated and stolen by one Edgar Chavez Zulu.

    • @ 1.10 Obatala
      They are happy because they know that the courts will be able to settle their illusion.

  2. No need for foreign approval because we know that Mr HH lost even before the first ballot was cast. You can tell by his actions from opposing Dubai, chasing ECZ trucks, hijackings of ballot boxes to interrupting the tallying.

    • Yes were i was voting from the voters were orderly and inclusive, we were even hugging, until some judah escariots started tempering with the vote counting, what was that Ugandan with a fake ID doing in the ECZ server room?

  3. Are you not the same pf cadres who say elections are won through the ballots and not courts, now your legitimatization spokesperson harry kalaba has come up with a purported letter from the Commonwealth, is the same letter so confidential that Zambians can’t have a look at it, inviting foreign presidents doesn’t legitimatize your president, even Gaddafi was the official architect of the new faced African Union and was in Zambia a few months before he was thrown out through people power, he was meeting European leaders the same month he was ousted, it’s not how many presidents visits you have that make you legitimate. Yes the election was orderly, inclusive until the counting started, until that Ugandan was found in ECZ server room, until the G12 forms could not be released.

  4. Can’t wait for 2021 and I promise some party will be in court with 2016 court cases and there friends will be taking part in the 2021 elections and by the time they realise it will be too late. Again they will start the 2021 court cases. Watch this space

  5. The United Dunderheads only see what they want to see. As far as they are concerned their leadership is perfect and can do no wrong!
    Some of us pro PF commentators have been honest enough to criticise the govt and PF in areas we feel they are lacking or strayed whereas these United Dunderheads are in a perpetual state of denial of the fact their leadership is merely using them Let them continue their pettiness if they want to as days are ticking and only a Dunderhead can believe that come 2021 at the rate they are going (UPND) that they will win! Only in a Dunderhead’s paradise! You can’t force wisdom on a Dunderhead!

  6. If these PF Bloggers do their homework they will find that the alleged Letter from the Commonwealth SG is fake. The Letterhead and the placement of the Logo betrays Amos Chanda’s Propaganda. Lungu wants Zambians to believe that he has already been recognized by the International Community and therefore the Hearing of the Petition is no longer necessary. The opposite is true. The Commonwealth,AU,EU,SADC and UN want the Petition Heard and disposed off so that the Zambian 2016 Election Dispute is resolved urgently. Nobody will tell Lungu that “its fine u stole the elections but we will let bygones be bygones”. Its wishful thinking on the part of Amos Chanda and Lungu. Only the Hearing of the Petition will set Lungu free and give him some semblance of Legitimacy. Lungu Ayopa Chani? # Let…

    • Completely agree. If it is DJ of USA he will not even allow Lungu to come close to the white house if he heard this is a suspect of illegitimacy.

  7. My HH will win again in 2021 and be robbed because he is a village boy clothed with money.

  8. HH you are no different from the communist in North Korea…. I love your partnership with Fat Albert

  9. Yes just like the reported phone call from jimmy carter congratulating lungu only for the carter foundation to blast lungu the next week

    Like the letter from the queen of England who does not get involved in politics and only only congrats on anniversaries or national days or on very very rare occasions only after the British goverment.

    Or fake news that lungu was congratulated in a hotel corridor by the US when he gate crushed the general assembly

  10. I wonder what the UPND cadres would have said if the commonwealth said otherwise. The Up and Downs always want everything in their favour. Just a few weeks ago when the commonweath secretary visited their god, these kids from the tribal party were pissing themselves with happiness hoping they will get some support. There has been no election anywhere in the world that has been reversed by the courts after an election body declares the winner. Unless the fat boy and bitter u5 kid are hoping to make history. What kid of criminal even choses his own Judges?

  11. 1) Commonwealth did NOT send any observors/monitors for the 2016 elections & cannot make a fair assessment from their air-conditioned offices in London. OBVIOUS MWALITETA & thousands of UPND cadres are still in jail without any charge or bail for tramped up charges e.g. for trying to execute a citizens-arrest on State house thug Kaizer with ballot boxes at City Airport. Commonwealth has become irrelevant organization which only serves to foster the worshiping of queen of england.

    2) Why does PF00Lish regime seek legitimacy from enemies of democracy? Real democratic nations don’t want to taint their image by forging ties with LAZY. Nowadays even Mugabe shuns LAZY, thats why he now admires Museveni who doesnt even remember his 1st name. Your so called best friend calls u ati “Edward”…

    • CONT’D ..
      Your so called best friend calls u ati “Edward” Lungu. Nxahh!!

      – Togolese president Gnassingbé was installed as President with support from the army after the death of his Dictator father Eyadema.
      – Who doesn’t know about oppressive Ethiopian Govt? Security forces of shot dead hundreds of people in Oromia and Amhara regions late last year.
      – King Mswati is an enemy of democracy who arrests democracy campaigners. Mswati is richer than the country. He lives in opulence, buys Maybachs for each wife whilst his Govt has no money for civil servants salaries.
      – Kabila’s extension of another 7-year 3rd term bid is being copy & pasted by LAZY through crook & hook. Scores of protesters were killed in December after he announced indefinite postponement of elections.

  12. Laughable, why can’t Lungu just hear the petition? You need the approval of foreigners? People like Lungu will always be a worker waiting for instructions of what to do. Ati President. The problem in Zambia is that we have a huge number of 1d10ts that support anything and everything. Zambians do not need international approval on the last elections because ‘Zambians’ know the elections weren’t not free and fair. Lungu knows this. UPND should pursue this matter to prevent it from ever happening again. Let the courts hear the petition. Why is Lungu scared?

  13. Please show us the letter so we can authenticate it. If true, we want to commonwealth to explain what that Ugandan was doing in the ECZ server room? We want the know why ECZ figures were changing and in some cases did not even add up to the majority threshold? Lungu must do himslef a favour and allow the petition to be heard. Otherwise he will be a suspect of illegitimacy and whether he gets away with it or not. Its not a good thing to have on your name tag

  14. @Mwale (real name Hamwaale),please breach upnd constitution to hear the petition after 14 days and not our Republican constitution which your hh cried for before ECL signed it.2016 elections are done and dusted and no two ways about it.upnd can ask any western country or powerful organization such as UK,USA,Russia,Japan,China,South Afriaca,then UN,AU,EU,SADC,etc all recognize Edgar Lungu as Zambian president.so who is hh and his dudumwezi supporters to reject ECL’s presidency?hh was a competitor and wanted to win too much,so he feels ashamed losing to a man he called visionless!!look hh and his blind supporters are just looking f00lish in the eyes of any sane person!!instead of preparing for 2021,upnd is busy crying about lost elections-thats history and no court judge will remove ECL…

    • That letter looked monga yachoka mukamwa ka mbuzi, and am just wondering why would Amos and kalaba be moving with letter from Commonwealth secretariat at the SADC meeting. I smell something fish, especially that they claim that it was sent to them before leaving for Swaziland.

    • Even if this be. Remember there will be consequences when ECL leaves office. The peculiar case of Zambia is the abrogation of the constitution. In all these countries you are mentioning the process runs smoothly and the stealing of votes is done systematically. Therefore the law seems to be followed. However, the Zambian case is different I.e. G12/19 forms missing, cadres taking over electoral stations by force, spinners in electoral processing server rooms, votes starched in bins, incumbent refusal to allow court process by handing over power to speaker or in short abrogation of the constitution. I hope this helps you stop giving stupid examples.

  15. 1. The whole article if read in-between the lines implies boiling issues somewhere and the people in govt are feeling hot. To start with the article has no author – coincidence? Is’t authored by state house? Why belabour?

    2. Elections held in a credible and fair environment- Maybe true? But was the outcome representative of what people decided?
    3. Scotland assured president Lungu of continued support to the country – this is not the same as recognition. Support can mean we shall not watch and allow Zambia degenerate into a failed state by non observance of laws or individuals imposing themselves into leadership. Surely our journalists should learn to be critical as the devil lies in the details and not this cheap narrative from spine doctors. There seems to be more under the tongue…

  16. 4. There is disgruntlement from DRC and look at how it’s been spinned. The bottom line is that it seems DRC have fired a warning shot and this is the reason Kalaba is investing all his energy to twist the narrative.
    5. Let’s watch and wait.

  17. President Lungu if you won the elections nothing can change the evidence, not 14 days , not HH , not the concourt, not the consitution and not the petition , so don’t be afraid of the petition to prove you are not an illigal p

  18. President Lungu if you won the elections nothing can change the evidence, not 14 days , not HH , not the concourt, not the consitution and not the petition , so don’t be afraid of the petition to prove you are not an illigal p

    • WHAT NEW THING CAN HH BRING TO THE COURT THIS TIME? HE WAS GIVEN 14 DAYS IN WHICH HE FAILED TO PROVIDE HIS EVIDENCE. WHAT IS UP HIS SLEEVES? WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT HH THAT WE SHOULD BREAK OUR OWN CONSTITUTION AND ALLOW HIM TO BE HEARD BEYOND THE CONSTITUTIONALLY ALLOWED TIME?
      THERE IS NO CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION THAT ALLOWS HH TO BE HEARD AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION.
      WONT ECL BE DENIED HIS HUMAN RIGHT NOT TO BE SUBJECTED TO A COURT LITIGATION AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION?

      MAYBE PF SHOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS SO CALLED “PETITION” AND KEEP HH OCCUPIED IN COURT UP TO 2021 WHEN HE WILL HAVE WASTED ALL HIS TIME ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT YOUR MATTER IS TOTAL NONSENSE.. THE PF WILL HAVE MADE A LOT OF STRIDES TO ANOTHER VICTORY. WHILE HH WILL BE FOUND STRANDED ONCE MORE WITH HIS PETITION PAPERS…

  19. Why was Zambia cursed to have PF and UPND as major political parties. Two parties who you can see that they are not adding any value to the multiparty political dispensation of the country. They are always quarreling, you can tell from the posts of their cadres on these bloggs that maturity is a rare commodity in their ranks. They both think that the one who speaks and insults the most is the winner. Deregister both of these gangster parties please, Zambia won’t loose anything

  20. I wonder what the United Pathetic Nonsensical Dunderheads will say on this one. They dont know seem to understand that regional bodies incl Commonwealth DO NOT form part of our Electrol process. Tamwaka tekepo

  21. We have a president who would rather be called a theif than prove UPND lies.

    That is why you have his political advisers doing kung-fu with secrurity in front of a packed stadium.

    Just by them hiding behind 14 days you can tell something is wrong…….a winner of any elections would not want to be called illigal like lungu would rather be, a than face the petition..

  22. I wonder why we Zambias are myopic.We Can’t remember the troubles of having regional parties. That’s why Kaunda had to push for a merger of ANC & UNIP. This tiff betwn PF & UPND. It’s the recarcation of the old rivals through their grand children with the help of few betrayers. The only way to resolve this issue let the court’s decide. No amount of sugar coating the legitimacy of baKing will help.

  23. I am still lost why we still have PF and UPND in this country. We must find a way of ensuring that these worthless parties become extinct. Tell me what does Zambia loose by not having these parties

  24. NOT TRUE!! IF THERE WERE ANY TRUTH TO THIS THE SECRETARIAT WOULD HAVE MADE THE STATEMENT. ALTERNATIVELY THE LETTER WOULD HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED.
    THIS IS JUST BOZA!!!! WE ARE NOT FONT-TEENS!

  25. Of course the letter was addressed to lungu and written as requested by lungu. What credibility does the common wealth have when their agenda has always been to create confusion while they suck poor countries dry. With Britain leaving eu they are now desperate to trade with us. They will cause confusion in order to get comparative advantage in trade. Meanwhile that drunk rat lungu is busy giving them the ammo just so he can legalise his illegal presidency.

  26. The UPND and their lawyers are extremely incompetent.

    UPND and their lawyers lack understanding of basic law.

    The constitution in article 279 states as follows:

    (b)if the last day of the period is a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday (“excluded day”), the period shall include the next day;

    (c) where an act or a proceeding is directed or allowed to be done or taken on a specified day and that day is an excluded day, the act or proceeding shall be considered as done or taken in due time if it is done or taken the
    next day; and

    (d) where an act or a proceeding is directed or allowed to be done or taken within a time not exceeding six days, an excluded day shall not be counted in the computation of
    the time.

  27. Now, anyone who does not understand this basic article cannot defend a case.

    The commencement of the case was on Friday when the petition was filed because the filing-in day was not an excluded day.

    Where the timeframe does not exceed 6 days, the excluded days are not counted in the computation of time.

    Otherwise the excluded day form part of the count – and in the case of the expired petition 14 days is clearly more than 6 days – thus all the excluded days ( weekends and holidays) were countable.

  28. Please Zambian judiciary, can you quickly dispose of these donkey cases so that the donkeys are given a chance to focus on 2021. We need a party like UPNDonkeys to beat again in 2021 but at the rate they are going they may spoil our fun by destroying themselves. By disposing all pending cases I mean including rejecting frivilous applications for recusing judges and abusing the court process.
    Tell the twin donkeys hh and running mate that their cases are too complicated to be handled by Zambian judiciary so they go to the ICC and the ICJ, why are you wasting their time?

  29. At the ICC and ICJ, they will see the real cost of lawyers. Maybe that will teach hh and running mate donkeys not to waste our precious time.
    By the way how come that wherever you go only people from a particular region talk about petition and 14 days while everybody looks bbored and disgusted? Is it linked to the original objective of Ackson Kejani?

  30. Amos Chanda is the Author of this Article so u should expect Propaganda. In fact the Commonwealth is saying the opposite. They want to know the Status of the Petition? They want to know why the Petition Hearing is taking this long to be heard? The want to know how Lungu was declared the Winner by Corrupt and notorious ECZ without G12 certificates? They want to know why Lungu committed so many illegalities and in particular why he refused to handover power to the Speaker of Parliament to enable a free Petition Hearing Process? Commonwealth, AU,SADC,EU,UN etc are asking so many questions about the outcome of the 2016 Elections and the illegitimate Lungu Regime is failing to answer these questions. The Regime is feeling the Illegitimacy heat.

  31. Good! Let us now have the petition heard now so that we close this chapter. There should be no fear now. I wonder why the Judges have been evasive, PF spokespeople wanting the petition blocked at all costs and funny how ECZ officials who mishandled the election have scampered in all directions. Yes I will not go by the commonwealth statement but the EU observer statement. Yes, Election Day was peaceful thanks to the peaceful and docile nature of Zambians! It is the electoral process and events leading to and events following Election Day that were not free and fair! Preventing candidates from freely campaigning, unfair media coverage, closing media houses for covering opposition candidates, selective application of the POA, restricting the air space against opposition candidates, abuse of…

  32. restricting the air space against opposition candidates, abuse of government resources by the ruling party cannot be classified as free and fair. We can forgive our external stakeholders for saying certain nice things but we also understand they mean well. We don’t have to cry for commonwealth or EU opinion over our internal processes as if we can’t determine what is free and fair, good and bad for our country. Where is our pride as a people?

    The truth is no one got over 50%+1 threshold as was required. G12 certificates were either forged or missing. Mwaliteta is still in prison because of the fear of what he has to reveal about what was happening. Chagwa can’t fire Kaizer because we know the role Kaizer played with ZAF! How did Kaizer become an electoral officer receiving ballot…

  33. receiving ballot papers?

    This is why the petition will not go away just like that. This was an election that could have put this country in trouble with itself. The loser in an election must be convinced that the process was free and fair. Though I was one of the people who thought HH should just move on, I think that would set a bad precedent for future elections! Moreover who swore Chagwa? That was another irregularity we should not ignore! As Chagwa’s presidency goes, it will remain in question because of the many unconstitutional acts Chagwa and team have committed against all odds! The bible says Stolen water is sweet at first but it later give the feeling of gravel in the mouth! It’s a riddle! Don’t interpret literally! Not Free and Fair!

  34. Supreme Leader HH of the UPND and his cadres will just be coming close to winning an election nationwide because they lack wisdom and tact…hence will remain where they are for a long time unless the Supreme Leader himself grows up…

  35. You UPND fanatics surprise me. Time is passing on and you are still talking about the petition. Nearly a year has passed and you guys are still mourning! By the time you stop mourning, it will be 2021 and too late for you to start the campaign!

  36. This is Amos Chanda propaganda and PF cadres cannot see that. There is nothing to be excited about this fake letter. Just wait for proper response from commonwealth, not this statehouse propaganda. Only the gullible take such nonsense. Besides commonwealth cannot turn lies into truth and I think PF must get that straight.

  37. The news about the letter from the Commonwealth at this late hour is suspect if not fake news.
    This is unbecoming of Commonwealth secretariat to issue such a letter without addressing many issues on the democratisation of African countries where this call has in some cases fallen on deaf ears. To cast an off cut statement that 2016 Zambian elections were free and fair is not the typical tradition of such an institution.
    Its like Donald Trump accusing Britain spying on him before USA elections, who can believe that jibe? The Commonwealth in fact has never issued such a letter to Lungu as reported. Its fake news.

    • it is also like that weak Obama who failed to defend and protect america later on accusing TRUMP that russians helped him win the elections just to save his face for having heavyly campaigned for hillary. who can believe that jibe? when TRUMP was winning the primaries, there was no issue of russians helping him coz Obama believed afterall hillary was going to win and he completely wrote off TRUMP. Now Obama has come up with all sorts of russians this, that just to save hiS humiliated face that he lost as POTUS. it is all FAKE NEWS! FAKE NEWS!
      In all this Obama who emboldened african dictators by his weaknes to act, is heavyly backed by the discredited – British Broadcasting Clnton (BBC) and by the highly dicredited Clinton News Network(CNN)

  38. Imwe sure why waste time Ichilema? Edgar Lungu won the presidential elections clean and loud. Why hasn’t the hynae not taken the battle with ECZEMA which declared Lungu winner? Anyway we understand that when you overate yourself with being sincere with oneself, the effects and reality of a loss and defeat are just too much to bear especially after borrowing massively in anticipation.
    So ba HH nkalani chabe, you will never step foot in the State House corridors, chalipwa!
    2021 will even be massacre for UPND.

  39. Woodlands Police has murdered a ZAF officer detained at station over a traffic offence.
    Sangomas at state house demand human sacrifices for Lungu to be accepted by all Zambians as president. However, evil cannot triumph over truth. Unless Zambian courts hear the elections appeal and determine the true winner, Lungu remains illegitimate president.

  40. in my honest opinion, talking about the petition is like taking expired drugs or dating a married person. surely even kids know so well that the case is history. the only group of people I expect to be still interested are lawyers because they have there living in it. if hh wins any election in future with minority mps like now, am sure the both parliament and national assembly will be full of drama. am sure those that did not vote for upnd are just thinking they have a mad men in opposition because you can protest in front of a person that did not vote for you claiming you won the election. as it is now, pipo will be forced to vote as they did in 2016 and as such the pattern will be the same. a lot are upset with the petition and change is now impossible

  41. Never before in the Zambian political History have we experienced such politics of bitterness, hatred and tribal like that of UPND. HH thinks he is bigger than Zambian, and he thinks Power is by force. His outrageous behaviour and failure to accept Reality and move on simply indicates how stubborn he is, and the same would happen if he were in power and lost the Elections, trust me, this Guy loves Power so much that he can do anything to stay in power. I see no difference from Mugabes. That’s why Zambians will never trust him with Zambia. HH will never rule Zambia, forget it, and the Truth will forever remain as the Fact is. Wrong Material for Presidency. Try underworld!!!!

  43. @general Kanene, here is some of the meaning of CREDIBLE – Trust worthy, Reliable, Sincere, Dependable, now tell me if some one calls you trustworthy what does it mean?

  44. This is fake. Show us the letter. I don’t think the Commonwealth would sink so low as to give thumbs up to the rotten August 2016 polls. What facts would justify this lie?
