    • Abraham Lincoln one said he failed 7 times before he succeeded. It’s now how you fall it’s how you get up!

      HH is 55 now – realistically his best chance may have gone or has it ?

    • So those arranging dialogue, have they arranged a topic of discussion?

      Or is the dialogue going to be about what topic to discuss?

      It is interesting how you can pull people together and tell them to start dialogue without any known or meaningful topic or subject?

      One pupil passes number 1 and the other fails.Then the pupil who has failed tells the pupil who passed number 1 saying let us meet and discuss why you passed number 1 and not me.

  1. Edgar Museveni Lungu is learning the art and the science of repression very well.
    Prof Gambari attests to that.

  2. If UPND was food only dogs can eat. You insult judiciary and the government. Today he wants to reconcile with Lungu whom he has declared he is not a Republican president. Now on what basis will they dialogue? Indeed under five. They don’t even know damage control. I repeat if UPND was food only dogs can eat. Under 5

    • You can rant all your life……… We the real citizens want this political disagreement resolved and issues that brought us to this point addressed so we do not see a repeat of this.
      So, stop ranting and give dialogue a chance. we want our institutions of governance to operate freely and in the best interest of the country. We want to instill trust in these institutions and let professionals feel protected for making the decisions to make at all times… So, ranting will not deter us.

    • Kudos, you hurt, jealous and envy for HH will choke you and your offspring. Do you care that the locking up of HH on tramped charges has caused reduced tourist arrivals and subsequently less revenue for the country, that our image abroad had been irreparably damaged…Universities in the USA are using Zambia as an example of a failed state…there is reduced FDI and all this for what? So that ill qualified people with no vision can be leaders? You should be ashamed of yourself..Kudos!

  4. Kaponya (HH) has realised that Zambia was functioning well in his absence. The majority Zambians know where to vote Pabwato.
    (HH) no longer talks about the failed petition this is a good thing. Next time he should know better than to hire Jack “Preliminaries” Mumbwe

  7. Good start by HH and UPND. Focused, mature and no melodrama. In short, this is exemplary.

    Now, lets wait and see how ECL and PF/MMD starts.

    Already, the internal wrangles about Mr. Mutati are NOT exemplary. They are a clear sign of lack of confidence in ECL who appointed Mr. Mutati as Finance Minister without pre-conditions in the first place. This is melodrama already.

  8. This under 5 president is not committed to dialogue. He was in SA antagonizing the president and the government. Please don’t give him space and let him continue ranting alone. The behaviour he has exhibited so far is that of unrepentant individual despite spending some days in prison.

  10. THERE IS A LOT OF TELLING OF LIES BY UPND/HH. WHICH DIALOGUE ARE THEY COMMITTED TO? THEY CAN ONLY BE COMMITTED TO DIALOGUE IF A TONGA IS THE PRESIDENT. SO ALL THIS TALK ABOUT DIALOGUE IS A FLUKE. THE COMMONWEALTH SHOULD NOT EVEN BE WASTING TIME COMING TO ZAMBIA. ALL THAT HH NEEDS TO DO IS TO FOCUS ON THE 2021 ELECTIONS AND CHANGE HIS STRATEGY, GIVE CONVINCING REASONS WHY WE SHOULD VOTE FOR HIM. HE ALSO NEEDS TO COME CLEAN ON TONGA TRIBALISM AND THE ACTS OF ARSON THAT ROCKED THE NATION INCLUDING THE BURNING OF CITY MARKET. THERE ARE MANY SOULS OF POOR PERSONS SUFFERING BECAUSE OF THE TORCHING OF CITY MARKET WHICH WE ALL KNOW IS SHROUDED IN UPND/HH COLOURS.

      Can you tell us why PF are demonstrating against mutati ,is it because he is not Bemba ?

    • 1. I reckon MunaDekhane and others by now clearly know that THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA IS ONE AND ONLY EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU; If Zambians elect him in future he will be in State House not anyhwere else;
      2. As for “Which One @ denkhete” question I be ALL of them (a), (b), and (c) are emphatically crimes under the CPC;

  11. PLEASE PROF GAMBARI, THAT MAN YOU ARE TALKING TO IS NOT POPULAR IN ZAMBIA. ZAMBIANS DO NOT LIKE HIM. THEY HAVE BEEN REJECTING HIM A RECORD 6 TIMES. HE IS A CRY BABY WHO WENT ROUND THE GLOBE TELLING LIES ABOUT THE STATE OF DEMOCRACY IN ZAMBIA. HIS LIES HAVE NOW COME TO HAUNT HIM AS THE TRUTH HAS NOW BEEN KNOWN GLOBALLY. AND PLEASE DO NOT BE CHEATED, HE IS NOT COMMITTED TO ANY DIALOGUE. EVEN IN 2021 HE WILL LOSE AGAIN , WILL PETITION AND CONTINUE MAKING THE SAME NOISE.PLEASE BE WARY OF SUCH POLITICAL CHARACTERS.

HE HAS ALSO TOLD HIM ABOUT THE “PROVOCATIVE” BEHAVIOUR OF HH IN MONGU AND PROBABLY SHOWN HIM THE VIDEO CAPTION. HE WILL PROBABLY SHOW HIM SOME BLOGS ON ZAMBIAN WATCHDOG FULL OF INSULTS FROM UPND.

    • That is good, the more people talk or complain or praise lungu to the west about Zambia , the more interest is payed to Zambia and lungu…it only means everyone is watching lungu and PF and their thuggish behaviour…….even start sending petitions to prais lungu ,it only means more poeple in the west will be paying closer attention to Zambia…..

      It’s a win win situation for a free and fair democratic Zambia,

      Before leaving London for Zambia I was in receipt of a mail requesting me to remind the president of Zambia about human rights in Zambia. It has come to my attention that such calls are being perpetuated by an opposition political party whose leader has been losing elections a record 6 times. Besides there is no merit in such calls. We have seen such opposition political parties making noise in Kenya, Malawi, Uganda and RSA etc. The problem with africans is that they dont accept losing. They only accept democracy if they are the winners. Zambia has been a beacon of peace and example of democracy. But out of frustration the opposition has been trying to dent that image. I hope madam Scotland of the commonwealth has…

      That is very good, the west take petitions seriously for the sake of democracy…..the more people send petitions for against lungu the better for Zambia as the west will be paying closer attention to what is happening on the ground…..

      BTW we have sent Similar petitions reminding the west of Mugabeization of Zambia to the IMF, world bank, UN, EU among others, can you also counter those petitions with your own one so these people pay more attention to PF and lungu….

  14. @Spaka like lilo. THAT IS EXACTLY THE PROBLEM WITH HH. WINNING ELECTIONS DOES NOT DEPEND ON THE SIZE OF THE RALLY OR HOW MANY CROWDS ATTEND YOUR RALLY. YOU MUST HAVE LEARNT THIS FROM THE TWO PREVIOUS ELECTIONS. HH CAN MAKE HIS MESSAGE HEARD THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA, MUVI TV, ZAMBIAN WATCHDOG, “THANKS GIVING RALLIES” ETC. WE ALL KNOW HH. IF HE HAS ANYTHING NEW, WE WILL STILL GET IT.
    AND ABOUT MUTATI, THAT IS PURELY A PF MATTER. THEY ARE EXERCISING THEIR INTERNAL DEMOCRACY AND THE ABLE LEADERSHIP OF PF WILL HANDLE SUCH SMALL MATTERS COMPETENTLY.

    • If winning does not depend on size of rallies etc , why is lungu and the PF police stoping UPND from mobilising ?

      If mutati was Bemba it is safe to say there would be no such demonstrations….

  16. The hh thing thinks that he will only yap to what he think is right but he will made to realize that he did not win past elections.he is the upnd opposition leader and ECL is the republican president.Also he will be told that 2021 election is coming for him to stand.plainly speaking hh should know that being a crying baby to the white supremacist will not make him a president instead he must convince voters to vote for him.As long as PF use right candidates in their respective constituencies hh will continue crying in the nappy.

    back to the issue,HH must be ignored by president Edgar Lungu because he will never change.no need to dialogue with HH.he lost 2016 elections and he will still lose the 2021 ones,so let him hung!!

EVERY TIME HE APPEARS ON THE BALLOT PAPERS, WE WILL NOT VOTE FOR HIM. WE WILL AVOID SUCH A MAN. AT LEAST US FROM THE 7/10 PROVINCES. THE WEST IS MADE OF REASONABLE PEOPLE, THEY WILL LISTEN AND SAY “THIS MAN IS FOOLISH.” US WE WILL STRIVE TO WORK FOR OUR COUNTRY, PRAISE ITS DEMOCRACY AND STRIVE FOR THE GOOD OF OUR MOTHER ZAMBIA. AS FOR HH AND MAIMANE, YOU CAN CONTINUE BADMOUTHING OUR LAND. GOD WILL CONTINUE BLESSING US. AFTER LUNGU WE WILL CHOOSE ANOTHER GOOD LEADER.

  20. Many of you in upnd do not know why HH lose elections.the following are some of the reasons;
    -he is very arrogant,
    -he is tribal (HH’s upnd is only popular in 3.5 provinces),
    -he is a know it all man ( he thinks he is the only educated Zambian),
    -HH has failed to call for a convention in upnd since 2006,
    -Nobody in Zambia knows what HH’s upnd would do for Zambia if he won,
    -HH’s desperation for plot one makes him to welcome finished politicians from former Govnts,so voters do not see the reason for change as the same old ones would be in his cabinet if he won,
    -PF Govnt has been delivering huge projects across Zambia,so voters think why should we change a working Govnt,
    -many voters believe that HH is not a real Christian because of his bad heart,
    -HH is not a crowd puller…

    • @ Njimbu the other reason is that the majority of Zambians think that the Supreme Leader HH of the UPND is a bitter soul and sadist who was very happy when President Sata was sick and subsequently died…

    WE ONLY HAVE 3 YEARS AND SOME MONTHS TO NEXT ELECTIONS. WE CANNOT WAIT TO DUNUNA AGAIN AND GIVE ECL HIS LAST TERM IN 2021. AND THOSE WHO ARE ACCUSTOMED TO LOSING WILL FACE THE SAME CONSEQUENCE (HARD LESSON)…….. KIKIKI…….. KOPALA AND LUSAKA TEMUNOBE.

    Am sure you have your relatives in Zambia,ask them how stable our economy has become since June,2017.BELIEVE YOU ME,IF WE HAD ELECTIONS TODAY,YOUR HH CAN LOSE BADLY!!
    Currently a 25 kg of breakfast meal is at K48,Roller meal at K38,Load shedding is long gone,we have water in our homes 24/7,kwacha is stable,fuel reduced,roads have been done and more big projects are coming,new houses,new districts,hospitals,schools,clinics are being built on daily basis by PF Govnt!!SO HH SHOULD PREPARE FOR ANOTHER “SONTA APOWABOMBA SLOGAN IN 2021!!”

    Votes,then we stole together”.
    Who in Zambia doesnt know how upnd instructed voters on queues in 3.5 provinces to vote for HH?VOTERS WERE BEING FORCED TO VOTE FOR HH IN BANTUSTAN AREAS.GOVNT IS NOW AWARE ABOUT UPND’S EVIL DEEDS IN ITS STRONGHOLDS,SO COME 2021 UPND WONT ACHIEVE THIS AS MEN IN UNIFORM FROM THE NORTH AND EAST WILL BE SENT THERE TO CONTROL THINGS ON VOTING DAY.apart from this,even cows are killed to feed voters,villagers were transported by upnd to voting centres,etc.SO ITS YOUR UPND WHO DOES RIGGING AND THEY THINK EVEN PF DOES THAT-SHOCKING!!
    plus if PF strongholds record a more than 70% voter turn out,HH cant be anywhere near PF.the voter turn out in your 3.5…

    • At least UPND used their own resources to ferry voters now lungu illegally used the army and ZAF to ferry voters after massive violence and intimidation….even this was not enough and lungu had to rig that is considering he just spent $10 billion on projects……if it was anyone else after spending 10 billion there was no need to campaign let alone rig…

  25. Reading how Uhuru Kenyatta rigged the Kenyan Elections by hacking the Computers makes me angry and wonder what Emmanuel Chavula,the Ugandan, was doing in the ECZ Server Room. He was obviously maniputing the Election results in favour of ECL. We cant sweep this under the Carpet. The Petition must be heard. All the irregularities and illegalities committed by ECZ , Concourt and ECL must be exposed. The truth will free us all.

It can be tough to reconcile with a thief who stole from you.

    note,IF ODINGA LOSES AGAIN IN KENYA,HE WILL REJECT RESULTS.BUT IF HE WINS, HE WILL CALL ELECTIONS FREE AND FAIR!!this is how HH and his supporters think too in Zambia!!!Whenever i look at the voting pattern in Zambia,i fail to see how HH can win anytime soon!!since 2006 HH’s upnd has never come out first in 6.5(Lusaka,Copperbelt,Luapula,Northern,Muchinga and Eastern) provinces.this is likely to continue…

  28. @Spaka like lilo:after 14 days the evidence and elections results didnt change.to date nothing has changed.2016 elections results still favour PF as winners and the so called “evidence” is only known by HH himself.
    Our constitution clearly states “an election petition should be heard within 14 days”.This is LAW and upnd or anybody cant change it unless it is removed or amended in the constitution!!
    ALL OF YOU IN UPND SIMPLY LOOK FO0LISH IN THE EYES OF MAJORITY ZAMBIANS BY TALKING ABOUT A DEAD ISSUE “2016 PETITION”.just prepare for another battle in 2021.if you think HH’s upnd will grab power from PF without A HUGE POLITICAL FIGHT IN 2021,you must be a dreamer!!

EVEN IN 2021 THEY WILL COME UP WITH “ECZ TRUCKS CARRYING PRE-MARKED BALLOTS”, THEY WILL CREATE ANOTHER “CHIVULA AT THE TOTALING CENTRE”, THEY WILL CREATE ANOTHER “14,000 VOTES FOR MAUREEN TRASHED IN GARBAGE BIN” THEY WILL CREATE “CHITULIKA POLLING STATION” THEY WILL ALSO INSTRUCT THEIR POLLING AGENTS NOT TO SIGN FORM G12 IN POLLING STATIONS LIKE THOSE IN MANDEVU, MUNALI, MATERO , LUSAKA CENTRAL WHERE THEY WILL BE BEATEN WITH OVERWHELMING MARGINS. WE KNOW ALL THESE TRICKS AND WE ARE READY FOR THEM.

  31. I’m scratching my head right now in puzzlement and confusion. Please can you tell me under which Zambian Constitutional rule does the Commonwealth Dialogue fall under? Which arm of our government apparatuses does this fall under? The commonwealth is headed by our lovely Queen Her Majesty Elizabeth R. But we have never received her in Zambia. We have been sent people of our Hue but of foreign origin. This one is a Professor, so he must be intellectually able. But hark…are those Western African Garbs he is wearing? This is not even reported on evening news here in London because the BBC knows most UK indigenous people have NO interest in the smaller (African)Commonwealth nations.

    • I am sending my CV around as my MA studies come to end in this new academic year. Mmmm, think I should send one to the Commonwealth secretariat, so maybe if they hire me (a genuine Zambians, with REAL interest in Zambian matters); I can then be sent to Zambia on Her Maj’s behalf. I would be more correct than the last two sent as I would engage the current government FIRST, then I would grab HH fling him back in a cell until his case is heard…oh not the election petition to be clear, but the Treason case. I would ensure the innocent who have lost property and earning capacity are put to the fore; that their suffering is put in balance.

The Election Petition must also examine this level of efficiency by the ECZ in these regions! I am ready to give empirical evidence on OATH of what exactly was done by UPND under the tutelage of Dipak Patel and HH’s American outfit. Let these guys not open a Pandora box – was managing the EMU of UPND!

  34. Sorry for those insane PF contributors, you know a winner does not force others for recognition. It’s only a failure who will keep on bragging! Look at mugabe, museveni and others even Zuma. No wonder, l strong and mark my words mushota and other PF followers if you want kindly tell you “king”to tell the world why the G12 documents were hidden. Shame..shame. For this dialogue to be a success let’s hold another general election with all the contentious issues surrounding the elections looked at. You will prove who the winner will be say the period should not be too long. Let Lungu dissolve parliament to pave way for elections. Let all members of Parliament be ready for this unfolding event so that we can stop finger pointing and unnecessary debates,name calling etc. All those that have…

  35. So those arranging dialogue, have they arranged a topic of discussion?

    Or is the dialogue going to be about what topic to discuss?

    It is interesting how you can pull people together and tell them to start dialogue without any known or meaningful topic or subject?

    One pupil passes number 1 and the other fails.Then the pupil who has failed tells the pupil who passed number 1 saying let us meet and discuss why you passed number 1 and not me.

  37. HH and UPND are more comfortable and prepared to Dialogue than Lungu and PF. Lungu doesn’t want honest Dialogue becoz the Dialogue will be about the Stolen,Disputed and Petitioned 2016 Election. Lungu stands accused of having stolen HH’s Election Victory. Lungu is afraid of proving in Court that he won the Election becoz he actually lost the Election,stole it and he is in State House illegally and unconstitutionally. Lungu becoz of this will Never negotiate or dialogue in good faith. Lungu is in a dilemma. If he walks away from the Dialogue he will be sanctioned and if he accepts Dialogue he has to allow the Hearing of the Petition. This is suicidal to him becoz the Court will find him guilty of stealing the Election and him , ECZ and Concourt of having committed numerous…

  38. Good start by HH and UPND. Focused, mature and no melodrama. In short, this is exemplary.

    NEXT ATTRACTION:- ECL’s Govt (PF/MMD) to meet Commonwealth Special Envoy and speak with one voice.
    Lets wait and see.

    Judging from the timing, and the cause, of the anti-MutatiMMD demonstrations, it is very clear that objective truth and honesty are NOT PF’s strong points by far.

    The timing of the demonstrations have sent a clear sign of lack of confidence in ECL who appointed Mr. Mutati as Finance Minister without pre-conditions in the first place. Already, this in itself is clear immaturity and lack of focus in PF.

    Lets wait and see. More popcorns please.

  39. @kiki DO NOT BE SLOW IN THINKING. DID YOU REALLY NEED 14 DAYS TO SHOW AND PROVE THAT FORM G12 WAS HIDDEN? WHERE WERE YOU ALL THIS TIME? THE FORM G12 DOES NOT CHANGE ANYTHING. IF YOU GET 2 VOTES IN MUNALI, IT WILL REMAIN 2 VOTES EVEN WHEN ANNOUNCED RGARDLESS OF WHAT IS SHOWN ON THE G12. RESLTS WERE ALSO DISPLAYED AT EVERY POLLING CENTRE. SO WHAT IS YOUR INTEREST IN THE FORM G12? WHAT DID DIPAK PATEL TELL YOU TO DO WITH THE FORM G12 ?

  40. @39-Eye-of-Horus,
    I hear you. It’s a strange paradox, isn’t it? I mean, Zambia has been an Oasis of peace, a pace setter and a provider of leadership in the region. With humble education, background and limited outside exposure, we still used to say ‘Ulubuli fiko’. Tribalism, racism, was beneath a Zambian’s mindset. As a result, we have had zero Zambian political refugees in other Countries. We attracted and earned respect, not demanded it, nor threatened to be respected.

    Fast forward to today, there are more educated Zambians with more international exposure, etc.. than before, and yet it takes the international community, and Commonwealth Special Envoy to come and provide leadership and freedom of liberties to maintain order.

    In other words, how is it that we rose from…
