  1. The losers are the Zambian citizens. Everyone wants to be president.

    What’s unfolding in front of our eyes is dilution of the votes across all viable political parties.

    The winner is PF… I really cannot see Kambwili president, and all he has done in NDC is put a big spanner in the works of UPND.

    My opinion, I could be wrong

    • He is actually putting a big spanner in the work of PF. HH supporters are faithful and cannot run to Kambwili.

    • On a fair ground, Kambwili is putting a spanner on PF as he is splitting the PF strongholds. But as usual PF will rig the elections. With all the stealing going on, I don’t see Kaizer Zulu wanting to lose power..

  2. I think PF should begin to worry that Kambwili and NDC are chipping away at its membership. Politics is about numbers and as things stand PF is losing numbers on a daily basis, not to mention the majority citizens who have become disgusted with the corruption, poor leadership, lack of priorities etc. President Lungu has clearly wasted 2017 and is clearly on his way out come 2021. President Lungu’s PF-MMD alliance is a disaster waiting to explode and is to blame for PF poor economic performance. Ba Mutati has clearly failed to deliver in the first year and with economic development once you fail to lay an economic policy foundation in your first year thats the end. Mutati wasted 2017 with sweet talk instead of objectivity.

  3. The growth of the NDC is good for democracy. I think they put good pressure on the ruling party, especially in the CB. PF and UPND must wake up.

  4. JUST WAIT AND SEE AND NOW PF WILL AWAKEN FROM THEIR SLUMBER.
    IAM SURE SOME ONE IS SWEATING IN PF.
    NDC WILL DISTABILISE PF STRONG HOLD ARES AND AS THINGS STAND BY UPND ARE CELEBRATING.
    THEIR CONSTTUENCIES ARE IN INTACT WHILE PF ARE LOOSING.
    KAMBWILI TIYE NABO.YOUNG COBRA BALA CEPA BA PF.
    CORRUPTION HAS BLINDED THEM.WHEN THEIR WILL BE A RE RUN THEY WILL,THEY WIL COME AND KNEEL DOWN FOR YOU.
    I CAN SEE NDC TO BE A FACTOR IN 2021.
    WELL COME NEW MEMBERS.

  5. Just before 1990, Zambia was slipping in a failed state. The fruits of Independence had disappeared and accepting POVERTY was becoming the order of the day. Corruption was at a record high whilst dictatorship was on brink. Thanks to the Zambia who it to the streets to voice their huge anger over the Economy which was now biting every person in the middle class. How long will it take for this President ECL that you don’t take Zambians for granted because when they act, they surprise each other because their always shoots to the TOP. Lungu has a choice, whether to revisit the Zambian Vision and keep on plundering the economy. It’s no or never to prepare for the future.

  7. Kindly check facts. Prof and Mrs Atanga left PF for UPND on 26th October 2015. Mr Levison Mumba was also UPND having left MMD. So they are coming from UPND to NDC.

    • Wow these political pr0stitutes!!! Thanks for the heads up…

      We are now able to keep a tag on them observing how they’re pathetically sucking d1ck as long as it’s fresh d1ck!

      Sorry for the language Zambia, but we need to compare these politicians to pr0sritues and that’s what they are.

      I believe if we did compare them, we’d probably be in a better place and vote better.

  8. KIKIKIKI……… UPND HAS LOST ITS MEMBERS TO NDC. THE ACTUAL WINNER HERE IS PF. THE OPPOSITION IS BUSY CHIPPING AT EACH OTHER AND REDUCING THEIR CHANCES OF GETTING 50% + 1 VOTES. THE PEOPLE WHO MATTER ARE THE PERSONS LIVING IN THE COMPOUNDS WHO HAVE VOTERS CARDS. THOSE ARE THE ONES WHO LOVE THE PF… DONCHI KU BEBEA. SO YOU CAN BARK AND BARK ABOUT CORRUPTION IT WONT YIELD ANYTHING FOR AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT PROVIDE EVIDENCE AND TAKE THEM TO COURT. THE PEOPLE WITH VOTERS CARDS ARE WITH THE PF.

    • Is it the policy of PF not to investigate CORRUPTION? And as a matter of political strategy never dare to prosecute? Then as consequence the ordinary people with voters cards will vote for PF eh? Please shed more light.

  9. @MWIZYO:those are a facts.
    All those names mentioned above left PF to upnd together with GBM,Sylvia Masebo,Guy Scott,etc once president Edgar Lungu replace late Michael Sata as PF president.so the loser here is UPND because almost all those who backed HH in 2016 are now joining NDC.if you have observed of late even GBM is very quiet,he may join NDC soon as well!!so much as HH’s bantustan votes are intact,same can be said about PF because its those Zambians in PF strongholds who hate PF and opted to vote for HH’s upnd in 2016 who may now vote for Kambwili in 2021.hence HH may lose the votes he got in PF areas!!ECL’S SOLDIERS ARE STILL IN PF!!
    here is the list of former PF officials who backed HH in 2016:Dr.Guy Scott,Bridget Atanga,Miles Sampa,Bob Sichinga,Lupando Mwape,etc.all these…

  10. Continue…

    All those who supported HH have now ditched him.plus you people in upnd should not cheat yourselves that Kambwili can be in a pact with HH-never because his only ambition is like HH-TO BECOME PRESIDENT AT ALL COSTS!!
    PF can even boarst because Miles Sampa has returned home from UPND.if Mulenga Sata,Bob Sichinga,Dr.Kaseba Sata,etc join NDC-still the loser could be upnd because all these supported HH in 2016!!
    I REPEAT,ALL THOSE WHO HATE PF IN 6.5 PROVINCES AND VOTED FOR HH IN 2016 COULD NOW VOTE FOR KAMBWILI IN 2021-FURTHER REDUCING HH’S CHANCES OF WINNING BECAUSE HH’S VOTES FROM 3.5 PROVINCES WOULD ALWAYS BE A DROP IN THE OCEAN!!so this is sad news for upnd unlike for PF!!

    • Njimbu “Bed & Breakfast”, 2016 and 2017 are now gone change is not optional, its actually 2018.

      I reckon the political tide is steadily skewing towards NDC, what NDC needs are seasoned and schooled game changers like Guy Scott and the Anti-Rigging protagonists (KBF and Musenda’Simuyemba – former Deputy National Secretary for FDD 2016); these guys will form a solid backroom team just like USA Donald Trump’s.

      Zambia has many rare brains but they are seldomly used for public good.

      Furthermore, NDC ought to make out a National convention even with interim structures to choose its National Leadership; especially the MESSIAH to out-weed and/or uproot the now endemic corruption that which is even now threatening Nation Security and Peace!

  11. How come Mr Kambwili is now accepting members from UPND into his NDC but he’s on record of demonizing MMD members who joined the Mighty PF because he made the nation believe that he was going to manufacture New members….kikikiki

    • PLEASE NOTE: all you see today are UNIP or products of UNIP. Will PF ever complain that ECL and Inonge Wina are UPND in PF? This can be insanity. Once one has changed thats the status quo.

      Do not waste time like Nevers Sekwila Mumba, Charles Milupi, Edith Zewelani Nawakwi, Musoma (ZRP), RB and Felix Mutati who date want to maintain DUAL/TRIPLE PARTY membership.
      For ease of record Given Lubinda, Dora Siliya and Miles Sampa are very PF, while Guy L Scott is NDC, Bridget Atanga is NDC, GBM is UPND, please do not even liken HH to Grant Thornton Party (if ever it exists)

  15. I have no problem with the opposition called NDC. However, my worry, which is the worry of many Zambians I suppose, is to have Kambwili as President. Maybe some people change but sometimes I feel some characteristics are engraved in stone, they cant simply disappear.

  16. Grand Funk, Happy new year. Greetings.

    My reasoning is that we keep searching for true leadership, if kambwili fails us we still kick out. Who on earth could imagine what is happening under the tutelage of one Edgar Chagwa Lungu? Not even the Grand Master of Corruption Engineering, one RB can surpass this nimble-prize record.
    Ba Kambwili isn’t an angel but seem to me resolved in excavating and up-rooting this vice causing untold financial hemorrhages to our national treasury plus natural resources in Mukula Trees!
