Davies Mwila about to address the media this morningThe Patriotic Front (PF) has scooped all by-elections but one in Itezhi Tezhi were the Party has however increased numbers compared to the last General election on August 11, 2016.

This is according to the statement released to the media by the PF Media team where the PF Secretary General Mr Davies Mwila congratulated the ruling Party on its victory.

“On behalf of His Excellency President Edgar Lungu and the entire Central Committee, I wish to salute Zambia’s number one (1) Party of Choice – the PF for registering great victory in the local government by-elections held yesterday, 14th September 2017. Besides winning, we have managed to reclaim the Mufulira and Chilanga Wards from UPND. No one dare challenge us when we say that we stand on firm ground,” Mr Mwila said.

“The Local Government Council Chairperson victories we have registered in Kanchibiya, Lavushimanda and Lunte Districts , including Councillor victories Bwacha, Luanshya, Mufulira and Chilanga is testimony of the confidence the Zambian people have in the leadership of His Excellency President Edgar Lungu and the Patriotic Front. We want to assure that we place great value on the confidence Zambians have in us and we promise more hardwork by way of improved service delivery across the board.”

“This victory is also for The hard working members who campaigned on issues and convinced our people that PF was indeed a government of the People, for the People and by the People. It shows that support for the PF is on the rise in the Itezhi tezhi and Copperbelt, Northern and Muchinga Province remains unshaken,” Mr. Mwila said.

“The by-elections are a clear demonstration that our pro-poor party is on the ascendancy and such is due to the type of leadership provided.”

He said the people in these areas have continued to demonstrate their confidence in the PF, as the only organisation that can deliver to their expectation.

“All we must appeal for to all elected and serving officials is that we dare not disappoint them,” Mr Mwila advised.

And in thanking the hardworking campaign teams, the Secretary General has directed Party structures to leave no stone unturned in mobilizing The Party and recruiting more members.

    • Big congratulation to the ruling PF for bagging up all but 1 or 2 wards and Mayoral seats in the just ended civic elections! There are many fundamental reasons for this continuous love affair in Zambian elections. Increase your sensitivity to the common man’s disposition on the frontier of social economic development delivery.
      At elementary level, we know that the Brenthurst Foundation agents of Mmusi Maimane, Julius Sello Malema, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, Tendai Biti, Morgan Richard Tsvangirai, Zwelinzima Vavi, Ann Bernstein, Mathew Nel and Christo Nel to mention but a few inimical to national interest failed to cast the vote. That is the case of being too busy with useless meetings and agenda in foreign capital. Zambian elections are done by Zambians in Zambia period. Good prelude of…

  2. We hope the next general elections will be characterised by no state sponsored violence against the opposition as was the last elections , that is the crux of the dialogue……free and fair elections and don’t force people to vote for you by using police violence.

  3. SHUT UP AND JUST ADMIT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN BEATEN PANTS DOWN. WHO IN HIS RIGHT SENSES CAN CLAIM THAT I VOTED FOR PF BECAUSE I WAS INTIMIDATE BY THE POLICE? JUST WAIT FOR 2021 WHEN THE PF WILL THAMP YOU DOWN AGAIN. YOU WILL GO CRYING TO THE CONCOURT AND MANY OTHER COURTS INCLUDING PETI “COURTS”, ETC.
    WHERE THE VOTERS LOVE THE OPPOSITION AS IN ITEZHI-TEZHI THEY VOTED PROUDLY IN THEIR NUMBERS.

    • State violence against the opposition was rife as well as illegally using all GRZ to campaign for him, lungu had just spent 10 billion, by all accounts it should have been a landslide, but it was only a disputed 100,000 majority ? That is eqivalent to 3 Lusaka townships ! Even that is disputed because there are accusations of rigging….hehehehe

  4. HH needs to start building UPND structures across the country to mobilize support by holding party elections at ward, constituency, district, provincial and nation level. By democratizing the UPND, HH will be one step ahead of the political game. HH also needs to develop a comprehensive manifesto which spells out their policy agenda for the country and the people of Zambia. The manifesto should tackle employment creation, the economy, the fight against corruption, reforms in the judiciary, press freedom, democracy and many others. The people of Zambia are looking for an alternative leadership and the UPND will do better by implementing some of the proposed measures.

    • True and very true. That’s what you call being visionary. The party has to start planning now and not campaign in foreign lands coz foreigners will never vote for him and the party. I like that

  8. The problem is H*H campaigned on the last day in his stronghold, why? He was supposed to go to another area where he knows he has low support. How do you put a bait on the already caught fish or shooting a dead person, for what?

  9. This is a chance for other political parties to come on board and prove themselves as UPND slowly melts down. One might ask as to why the second in command in the political game are said to be melting down . One of the reasons I think , is that they dwell too much on the past happenings most of which has nothing material enough to influence me to change and vote for Mr. X.

  10. This should come as no surprise to anyone. This is the voting pattern for bye-elections shortly after a major election. Just dig down in history. However, bye-elections held a year before a major election are best indicators of how things will turn out. PF is in power at the moment and there is no need to vote otherwise if you want your feederoad to have gravel. Never forget UPND leader was incarcerated four months and the party had no leadership.

  11. The problem with HH is so much for foreign nations he has spent more time going to campain in southafrica , leaving the electorate here in zambia attending southafrican parliament
    Visiting his sponsors immediately after prison he went to see maimane I think UPND need some one who is more attached to Zambia , and zambian politics how do you win when you are absent !

  13. Meanwhile there is a certain opposition party still crying about elections not only the 2015 elections but even 2014 while real issues remain a non starter! We lack a credible opposition UPND are not worth being called the main oppossition in Zambia they are a bunch of complete empty tins that have failed their constituents!

    The people need an opposition that talks about the maize floor price, Traffic road blocks (Atms), prison conditions, unfair sentencing for minor crimes etc etc… But alas this is not to be..then someone cries foul when they lose elections…

  14. The PF electorate have now waken up to the reality that they all have to pitch at the polling stations in their true numbers to ensure clear victories. This is what wouldve happened in the re-run UPND was seeking in the Presidential race. PF wouldve won by a larger margin in the re-run. That said, Zambia needs a strong UPND we cant have everyone running to the ruling party and allow it monopoly on power for ever. Thats the problem with Zambian politicians they all run to where the honey is every time. This is why every party which loses an election goes into oblivion UNIP and now MMD. then PF the UPND in that order over the year – Archive this !

  15. ….. why every party that loses elections goes into oblivion: UNIP and now MMD and then it will be PF and then UPND over the years. In fact if you are young and you are willing to wait this is the time to join UPND for surely it will be the next government when the Zanbian people tire of PF which at that point will disintergrate. The trend is clear for all to see.

    • There could be a party stronger than Upnd. In fact Upnd might disintereste should they lose 2021. Your projections are far fetched.

  16. PF used violence and rigged in chilanga, kabwe, mufulira and lunte. The winning was not due to the will of the people on the ground. PF thrives on violence and rigging like they did in the general elections in 2016. The insecure govt did not win hence their devilish behaviour of arresting people on fake charges. God is seeing all this nonsense.
