    With the discredited Essau Chulu still at the helm of ECZ she can try and spruce the image of ECZ but nothing will change. Until ECZ’s irregularities and illegalities committed during the 2016 Election are cleared no amount of Public Relations will succeed. The Petition must be heard so that ECZ can clear its name. ECZ should learn from the Electoral Commission of Kenya (EIBC) and avoid conducting future Elections in contravention of the Zambian Constitution and the Electoral Law. Let ECZ account on how it conducted the 2016 Election. Mulandu tauboli so even those who resigned from ECZ should be subpoenaed to Court during the Petition Hearing.#Let the Petition be heard.

    I think there is more stress and controversy at ECZ that ZDA. But she is equal to the task and probabaly there is more pay. Olo ku ZDA kwaba ama wanna bees

    @Don. Which Treason Case are u referring to? The HH Treason Case was abandoned by the State thru a Nolle Prosqui. The Lungu Treason Case where he refused to handover Power to the Speaker of Parliament during the Petition Hearing will start as soon as Lungu is out of Office and his immunity from Prosecution is removed. Mulandu siuwola. Jonathan Lungu will have to account for these illegalities committed while in Office. For this reason Lungu needs to resolve these illegalities while he still can and in Office. The best thing for Lungu is to allow the Petition to be heard and negotiate for immunity around the Petition. The writing is on the Wall.

      @KBF
      Imagine someone sued you for non-payment of debt. The court acquits you on a technicality before it can hear the evidence of the plaintiff. Is it your responsibility to have the case heard in court again?

      Chris Nafukauka was technically fired by ………………………..!

      Pricilla’s exhusband wants a baby come back; she has a huge gratuity!!

      Oh Ba Judge Essau Chuulu is a squatter and/or a party to land fraud, on Sub Division 37 of Farm 377A; if he is disputing lets get to the Land Tribunal – Mrs Hilda Chanda Kabwe-Phiri is widow and bona fide leasehold owner. If a man holding such an important office Supreme Court Judge can be involved in dirty transactions how safe are we?

    Wonderful for the former Chingola kid. My dad was a good friend to her dad. We congregated together at Kabundi East Parish just after it was constructed and opened in the mid 70s. This year I was back to Chingola after a very long time and went and visited our parish among other places.

      Congrats Maggie!
      Went to Chingola High School with your late brother Peter and benefited much from Batata BaChimanse’s editorials at Chengelo Magazine and off course as a parishioner- Kabundi, though I attended Nchanga Parish. I don’t envy your new job nevertheless.

    Congratulations Margaret! Your new post is great! Don’t listen to disgruntled elements and losers! They will NEVER accept anything that goes against their wishes! What they don’t know, which even a kid knows, is that “Politics is a game of numbers!” If you don’t have enough supporters ACROSS the nation you lose! Accept that! With their stoolpidity and reasoning which we have seen on the net, they will NEVER win an election in Zambia! Congratulations and just be ready to find the words to shut up bad apples in our nation!

    Personnel changes alone will not rebrand ECZ. What u need is to deal with the irregularities and illegalities committed by ECZ during the 2016 Election. The only way to know these irregularities and illegalities is thru Hearing the Petition. The Petition was never heard and is alive in Court. Lungu needs to be recognized as a legitimate President but this will only happen if he could legitimatise the 2016 Election. The only method to do this is to hear the Petition in an Independent and appointed Election Tribunal.This can be done if Lungu cooperates with the Commonwealth Envoy Prof. Gambari. Which way Lungu?

      Just to educate you – Prof Ibrahim Gambari served as Minister of Foreign Affairs under dictator Gen Ibrahim Babangida – that is the saviour for you.

    Iwe Chibwe you should respect yourself. The man you are calling discredited (Mr Essau Chulu) I can assure you is one of very few people that can handle that job very well mostly under the circumstances we experienced during the 2016 election. Don’t be cursing yourself by insulting elderly people. He is much elder than your father.

      That incompetent full should have step down already. ECZ is discredited because of him. I don’t care if he’s 100 years old, he’s too incompetent to be running anything.

    Honourable Justice Essau Chulu? Of course he will be there in 2021. If underfive is replaced at the convention of ********** perhaps in return we can consider replacing Justice Chulu too. Otherwise mr underfive will have to face Justice Chulu….kikikikiki. How can underfive criticise anyone when he himself leaves much to be desired?
    As for the now dead last year’s election petition, the underfive must be totally useless. Imagine he was searching ECZ trucks for evidence of rigging and didnt find any. And despite his suspicions, he failed to gather a single shred of evidence to support his case in Concourt. Imagine the amount of noise that he made about rigging kanshi likula lya ma elections pa Zed.

    Talking about “mental illness”?
    You as sufferer of genetically induced 1mbecility do you have right credentials to talk about “mental illness?

    The change of Personnel at ECZ alone will not improve the image and reputation of ECZ. A frog can wear lipstick but will never win a human being beauty contest. As long Essau Chulu remains Chairman of ECZ and Lungu and PF continue to control the Affairs of ECZ nothing will change at ECZ. ECZ stands accused of conniving with Lungu and PF to rig the 2016 Election in favour of Lungu and PF. ECZ must clear its name and address the alleged irregularities and illegalities they committed in the 2016 Elections. Without Hearing the Petition and clearing these illegalities and irregularities confidence in the Electoral Institutions like ECZ,ZPS,Concourt etc will not be restored. Come 2021 people will not go to vote when they know their votes will be stolen and wont count. # Let the Petition be…
