New Congress Party president Peter Chanda has advised UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to adhere to advice given to him by the Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland and former Nigerian President Olesegun Obasanjo to accept and forget about the 2016 elections.

Pastor Chanda says the two had confirmed that Mr. Hichilema had agreed in their presence to accept and forget about the 2016 polls.

He has told ZNBC News that it is however surprising to hear the UPND leader still insisting that he had won last year’s elections when he appeared on ZNBC’s’ Sunday Interview programme on Sunday.

Pastor Chanda has observed that Mr. Hichilema must realise that the courts of law cannot make a president and that it is only through an election that one can become Head of State.

He said Mr. Hichilema should instead focus and look forward to the 2021 elections and build his party to a level where the UPND will go for a convention and have intra party elections.

  1. A useful *****… why should one deliberately choose to be dull and loose memory of theft which took place? This is pure RATS IN THE POT mentality!

    • Keen Follower,

      Can you prove this theft? HH was asked to release the results of the UPND’s PVT results during the Sunday Interview and he failed to convincingly answer the question. If such empirical evidence exists, why not release it even here on LT so that all of us have the opportunity to evaluate is validity? What purpose does it serve to insult anyone who asks for proof of HH’s victory in last year’s elections?

    • An advice is an advice. It is a suggestion, not a directive. Whatever happens, the 2016 election left a scar that is less likely to disappear overnight. It is uncommon that the individual who committed the crime is the same one now demanding impunity.

    • When you allow koswe infestation in your house for long, rats will start playing in your pots during day time when you are very much awake. Koswe ala delela inga taulebika rat poison.

    • But the guy says all the evidence are in court. But why not let him have his full uninterrupted day in court to prove his claim than asking him to produce his evidence in the street. That’s the most descent way of doing things. Why are PF scared of the court?

  2. The TRUTH OF MATTER is HH lost 2016 general elections, HE knows DEEP DOWN of HIS heart.HIS/UPND PVT up to NOW shows nothing OF HIS winning of previous elections.The problem is that HIS supporters are bitterly disappointed with the lose of 2016 presidential elections as well ,instead of ADVISING HIM about the the truth about the WHOLE point. Even in 2016 although, They privately meets ALL opposition political parties, as well as SOME CIVIL society movement engineered by HH , through FUNDING of ANGLO AMERICA still more losing is there potions. EVEN violence which they intended/ intending to cast rather in LUSAKA and C/BELT to bring about total CONFUSION and FRUSTRATIONS to both GRZ and voters, nothing will work. HH is forcing himself on presidency, with out following democratic tenancies,…

    • UPND is not a party of confusion, why is it so difficult to be lawful in your dealings. And if evidence is produced on deadNBC interview then what are you going to do? Start arguing like ba koswe?

    • Just give him a full and uninterrupted chance in court to prove himself. If he fails to do that then we will agree with you that he lost the election. As at now he says that the evidence is in court so why not allow the court process and put the issue to bed. The more the PF is blocking the court process the more some of us thing that they have something to hide.

    • When theft of votes was there for all to see, you ask for evidence but when you allege hogwash about Anglo American, we dont ask for evidence. Can you prove Anglo American involvement in the Zambian politics?

    • How do you release results when case is in the court of law, hear the case if you sure beyond any reasonable doubt that LUNGU won the elections. You paid vuvuzelas

  4. This man wont listen to reason, he has spent millions of his own and other peoples monies on lost elections. Somehow he has false hope that he can win and reimburse himself using the same public funds that he claims the PF steal. Dont forget GBM must also wants his money back. Nima pressure chabe aya.

  6. Why is Peter Chanda advising HH instead of building his Katemba Party? It’s HH’ s Constitutional Right to Petition the Disputed Election Results. HH should just leave the Petition in Court.The day Koswe
    Mumpoto loses Power he will lose his immunity and be answerable for his numerous crimes. It’s in Lungu ‘s interest to resolve the Petition otherwise it will haunt him for the rest of his life.Mulandi tauboli. Lungu will eventually pay the price for committing numerous crimes including refusing to handover Power to the Speaker during the Petition Hearing. Time is the greatest equaliser.

    • We are tired of 2016 elections mwee. We need fresh air. UPND please concentrate on 2021 elections. Does it mean there is no one in the entire party who can advise HH? This is the reason you will again lose 2021 elections. People want to listen to your new ideas on how you will run the country, not 2016 elections all the time. Too childish!!!!!!!

    • He petitioned but failed to prove anything in the stipulated 14 days timeframe. Blame your HH for his failure instead of insulting. Just untonga your UPND if you want HH to win. Without this change you will die with insults in your mouths but HH will never rule. Learn to take good advice.

  7. The coming of HH to the political fore diluted the democratic principles that came with multi-partism of 1991. The man is undemocratic as he came to the helm of UPND leadership tribally and since then the party has not seen intra-party elections, the man has an insatiable political appetite to deliver the first ever TONGA presidency at the state house no wonder he is determined to do anything to win that presidency, as a result the man is becoming not only a liability but also a threat to the peace of this great nation. Ever since he came to the fore Zambian have been divided on tribal lines because of him preaching to his tribesmen that IT IS NOW TIME FOR TONGA TO RULE ZAMBIA. The earlier he leaves the political arena the safer for Zambia.

    • The country is in a mess my friend you and I both know that. If you continue discrediting HH purely on his tribe and not his abilities, God will continue punishing you with rif-raf leaders like Sata and Lungu. Just look at your country today and compare it to recently war-torn countries like Rwanda? Do you call that development when thousands of babies die on the floors of filthy UTH every month, while $42 million is stolen in one simple tender?

  8. @Fact
    ECL is a lawyer he failed to step down when 2016 elections where petitioned – would you and me first agree that he is a dull lawyer?
    If ECL is intelligent that he could not step aside to facilitate litigation, then, he is abusive, which abuse he used to to keep the BIG STICK in his hands, which without the BIG STICK he is as weak as a KANTODI(small rat which can be blown off by a small breeze)!
    In Kalulushi more than 12000 votes for HH were buried and exhumed in a graveyard. Unless you dont live in Zambia or you are part of the rats, you can go to the moon to look for proof of criminalities by the criminals(rats in the POT)!

    • Which Kalulushi? Unless there’s another kalulushi, definitely not the one I know. Someone fabricated a story and all of you take as gospel truth. Just show us the grave where these votes were buried. As a monitor I was there at Chavuma Secondary School where the counting was done. ..PF won clearly and there was no dispute from your mp, mayoral, ward chairman or president agent. So how can you an outsider know about these votes? And where your agents when those votes were being intered. Were they sleeping? Let logic rule.

  9. Pastor Chanda says that HH had assured the two that. ….He only agreed to the conditions because he wanted to leave Mukobeko as quickly as possible. He could even have agreed to relinquish the Upnd presidency if it’s going to lead to his freedom.

  10. Kikiki some people are naturally dull who can you ask someone to show results when the case is in court serious kikikiki Zambians with your comedy

  11. KEEN FOLLOWER IS AN IMBECILE , THEES HH BLIND FOLLOWERS ARE PATHETIC.

    HE LOST AND MUST DEAL WITH IT AND ACCEEPT, WHAT DO YOU FOOLZZ HOPE FOR BY HANGING ON TO “HE WON STORY” A YEAR AFTER ELECTION?

    THIS JUST EXPOSES HOW DULL THEE WHOLE UPND FOLLOWING IS

  12. Can peter chanda give us the names of the executive members in his party and when their going to meet their members mu komboni.

  13. With Nalumango on his side who is openly saying NO one should challenge this HH, how do you think of him listening to those two foreign advisors? These are the people who make him think he is the ultimate in intelligency in the UPND. He agreed just to facilitate his release otherwise he new quite well that the conditions he was in were very dangerous. If he was a good leader there would have been a ready replacement in case he was not available to lead. Its come what may in his case. I have also come to note that even those that are followers of this man where I am are equally mean. That’s my opinion.

  14. @8.1 correct, only those that have not conducted voting can say that, at any polling station there are monitors, polling agents from all concerned parties who witness the voting. How were the ballot papers smuggled to Kalulushi Cemetery. Counting is done at every polling station and every party is represented there. This is a joke!!!!

    • The problem we’ve in Zambia today everyone wants to believe and see only what they want. The ZWD has caused a lot of anxiety among our people especially Mr Hakainde Hichilema because is fond of fabrication of false election projections.

  15. How could HH win in 3 and half provinces out of ten! Eee bushilu bwine! If he can’t accept defeat while in opposition , how about if he were state President? Kuti chashupa pa ku mu nukula, it will need ten cranes! Remember Mugabe last month!
