Lusaka Mayoral candidate Miles Bwalya Sampa in Bauleni

Patriotic Front candidate Miles Sampa is the new Mayor of the city of Lusaka.

Mr Sampa is so far heading for a landslide victory from the official ECZ results announced.

He has polled 27, 094 from the three out of seven constituencies announced, followed by UPND’s Kangwa Chileshe who got 14, 191.

Singer Petersen Mukubesa Mundia of the People’s Alliance for Change is third while Saboi Imboela has managed 2, 926 votes across all constituencies.

The ECZ is yet to release official results for Mandevu, Kanyama, Munali and Matero constituencies.

But unofficial results still put the PF in a clear lead and a landslide pattern forming.

    • Here is free advice for UPND; Change your president, pick better candidates and find a personality coach so you can click with voters!

    • So basicallly some of us living abroad we do not have any idea who is popular ku zambia. On Lusaka times awe sure you might think UPND is the party kanshi kuli ama team ya PF. Congratulations PF.
      Now listen here Mr Sampa, I know you are one of those die hard bloggers like Mushota on this LSK platform. So listen, I am coming to Zed, mu October, I want to find wifi ku airport ok?

      All the best. Please do the best for the people life is not just about you alone but the people.

    • Prior to coming into government PF used to win all urban by elections regardless of the region. This is a signal for a party which is about to form govt. Now what we are seeing is the only opposition which can emulate pf before winning 2011 is constantly losing even their seats. Guys you need an introspection.

    • Congratulations to Sampa. He saw his mistakes and humbled himself to correct himself. This is what normal people do. Because we all make mistakes. After messing himself up, he has still managed to bounce bank. Now this slap in UPND’S Face, especially to HH and GBM.

      Unless the whole UPND is so drunk with politics. The message that keeps playing from a broken vinyl on the turntable music system is :

      HH is vision-less.
      HH has passed his expired date.
      HH is too Angry and feels too- entitled by default, to the point of insulting people’s intelligence and reasoning.
      GBM is just a Rich Thug who is in politics to make money
      GBM has cost UPND a lot has no clue how better Zambia.

    • He will again go back through a cycle where he will now resign after he has challenged Lungu, form his party,make a non -functional alliance with Chipimo, join UPND then come back crying to Longu for another position. Some people are just predictable! Miles go away miles from me with a clenched fist.

    • A party whose existence is to win elections instead of delivering the people from poverty & poor service delivery. Come the rainy season, cholera will strike again. Lusaka will be full of black muddy garbage.

      Chinese & Lebanese will be given all the contracts & huuuuuge tracts of prime land in exchange for indebting these clueless voters. What a shame.

      ================================================
      Congratulations Miles for staying out of the Costa Show and chosing to stay with the electorates. Congratulations bwana SG for your leadership in the PF party, Congratulations ECL for identifying and appointing Mwila as your SG. Hats off to the beautiful electorates of LSK.
      Miles, you stayed miles away from the Costa Show as per party tradition and emerged victorious. Please work and transform LSK fo the better. Yes you are the mayor of all LSK residents and Yes you are their servants. Now walk the talk.

    • Good morning folks, how was the OF Miles Sampa Holiday? Cry my beloved country, UPND is no longer a strong opposition, selfishness in the opposition parties is what is giving the ruling party bonuses. Ba opposition ba fee colour poseniko amano.

    • I am beginning to believe that HH is more concerned about being loved by northerners than ruling this country. How can he allow himself be under capture by a clique of northerners even before he enters plot 1! At least bambi they get accused to be under state capture when they are already ruling. Look at the choice of candidates so far, PF always adopts bembas because that’s their stronghold, why is UNDP following suit and even chosing mediocre bembas? Ninshi chosing a capable soli, swaka or luvale to be a candidate is tribalism? HH please wake up, you have surrounded yourselves with incompetent moles and us voters are being discouraged

      So now Sampa is finally a rich man again…Welcome to the Uubomba mwibala alya mwibala team…come lets loot..lets eat…lets steal

    • It’s shameful he will nothing for Lusaka, it’s about his own pocket. Unfortunately, there was no alternative because UPND has become so useless. HH is childish and thinks he can win with his arrogance. He should change his game plan.

    • I think people forget that UPND is fighting two parties, PF/MMD, When PF was in opposition, Their fight was agaist MMd only but now MMD has swallowed PF with RB has the gold father, SO the battle for UPND is even bigger, When i look at the result i feel that UPND is doing ok because they are fighting MMD/PF combined with GRZ resources, So heads up ba UPND surely your day is coming.

  1. Are folk really celebrating a Miles Sampa win? Mu fwaya progress nangula mu fwaya uku cita marginalise one tribe? You keep enriching politicians that have failed you by stealing from you in the hopes of punishing someone for his tribal background. To what end? To continue to be an impoverished nation? A nation ruled by leaders who take pride in educating their loved ones and getting medical treatment abroad while looting funds meant for our schools and hospitals? Have we no pride?

And please don’t even talk about voter apathy because if people really wanted to punish PF they would have voted overwhelmingly for your Kangwa Chileshe. Uluse kuli Hakainde

    • Every country needs an opposition party that keeps the ruling party in check and working for the people. The best opposition party once upon a time was mmd. And this was first time after pf won. Not this violence and insults we see. Opposition partys need to start seriously looking at the candidates they choose. For example if a man like SET stood to run for any position as I vote for him I l l remember him as the guy who walked the streets protesting fire tenders. If Pilato stood for anything I ‘ll remember him as the man always calling corruption out. Laura miti as the one who cares about the tax payers money. Austin sichinga as the intelligent man who boosted agriculture systems in Ethiopia, and that finance minister who did great things for Zambia. In short we need an opposition…

This guy is a failure, a hypocrite indeed. I feel sorry for my beloved country. PF has been stealing in broad daylight and nobody can’t stand up to speak? What has happened to the fire trucks story? It’s died a natural death! Majority of our leaders in Zambia have no morals, not even ashamed of stealing.

  5. According to Kasebamashila of Prime TV the aparthy is because Edgar is not popular, another kokai brain. Electing a Mayor isn’t a serious undertaking that people should spend time and energy on long queues, it’s only in Southern Province where UPND drags people from hospital beds to go and vote for Hichilema. That’s how they achieve a 95% turnout

    27

    • Indeed kokai reasoning. UPND candidate should have won then, regardless of apathy. Too much bananas in UPND. Imwe ba PF, don’t disappoint us, work hard and smart to turn this country around and around if you want to pocket 2021.
      As for UPND, stop the rot about 42/42, corruption which you can’t prove, Eswatini, impeachment, petition, protests etc…it’s not working for you. Get to the drawing board and tell us what you have up your sleeve for Zambia for you to become a serious threat to PF. More importantly change your leadership. HH is only popular in your heads and on social media. As for now Zambians are for PF and rightly so because PF is delivering on their promises. Stop focussing your hatred on the President. You are making him more popular. As things stand, I’ll vote for ECL…

    • Simply put Zambians don’t like politics of bitterness and lies.

      UPND cadres think that Hakainde’s nephew can win them an election by spreading fake news at Zambian Witch Doctor.
      Voters in Lusaka were not swayed by the fake news that Miles Sampa is a ritual killer.

      Voters don’t believe the fake Mutaware story that President Lungu is a foreigner.

      On the other hand Pastor Bishop Reverend Edward Chomba confirmed that Elder Kaponya (HH) is certified Free Mansion registered at Livingstone Brotherhood Lodge.

      Zambians hate Satamnism more than anything.

Bembas say “uwawa tabula kabepesho”,meaning “a person who fails will always find a reason to defend himself.UPND under HH has reached a dead end as the writing is clear on the wall that PF will even be stronger in 2021 after they finish all huge projects across Zambia.PF has won in all 7 constituencies of Lusaka.PF got 81,936 against UPND’s 36,753 in Lusaka!!This is a landslide victory and HH really needs to ask himself a lot of questions!!!Before 2011,It was Sata’s PF which used to win seats in MMD’s strongholds!!HH’s UPND has never won in PF stronghold since 2006!!PF grabbed Chilanga too from Kainde’s party and some wards in western and N/Western yesterday!!!

But I’m sure you have data to support your claim and gladly I will learn from you should you be willing to share. Like someone reminded me recently “truth is like poetry, and most people hate poetry”.

  13. WHAT HURTS ME MOST IS TO REMEMBER THAT UPND HELD THE WHOLE NATION IN SUSPENSE IN 2016 WHEN THEY CLAIMED THAT THEIR VOTES WERE STOLEN ESPECIALLY IN LUSAKA. SOME IMPORTANT QUESTIONS NEED TO BE ANSWERED BY UPND AS FOLLOWS:
    1. WERE YOUR VOTES REALLY STOLEN IN LUSAKA IN 2016?
    2. IF YOUR VOTES WERE STOLEN, HAVE THEY BEEN STOLEN AGAIN IN THE MAYORAL BY ELECTION?
    3. IF THEY HAVE BEEN STOLEN AGAIN, WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE?
    4. IF YOU TRULY WON IN LUSAKA, HOW COME YOUR POPULARITY HAS SUDDENLY FALLEN IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS.
    5. HAS APATHY ONLY AFFECTED YOUR PARTY?
    A VERY SERIOUS INTROSPECTION IS NEEDED IN THE UPND CAMP.

    • Nix!! What is happening is that the Zambian voter has evolved and is wiser than the chibuku drinking, chitenge/t-shirt receiving voter of the 90s. The problem is that the politician has regressed. The last group of politicians who understood the voter was the Mazoka/Sata group and Sata left a legacy of politicians who know how to win elections. The problem is further made worse by an impotent group of opposition politicians who can’t connect to the grassroots; the lazy 1.d.i.ots think they can win elections through Watchdog and the media using the same outdated strategy of attacking the grz with lies. We really need better calibre politicians in opposition!!!

Matero MP is use–less with his Councillors abena saulosi.U can make PF win in 2021 if u deliver in Lusaka.We know u’re capable of delivering.

  22. Looking at the performance of opposition parties in these by-elections which hv been going on, I feel Sorry for mother Zambia especially the common citizenry. It simply implies that we don’t have a strong opposition to shake/challenge the ruling party, which is not good for Democracy. I’m sure very soon we shall hear of more defections to the ruling party Hmmm! I’m even sensing more danger in the future where candidates might go unopposed. Pliz the Opposition parties can you wake up. Zambia is a Democratic country we need you to provide those important Checks and Balances. Miles Congratulations.

  24. Chisenga, that’s a good one. LOL. It looks like those voters who stayed away were UPND voters. HH should change his straterge and stop his politics of wild accusations. He should be telling people of what he is going to do differently and not stolen votes and ecl’s nationality.

  25. UPND should begin to question it’s own strategies before it’s too late. Your past methods have failed hence reason you should lay down new plans for 2021. Winning an election is a big, big project and requires think tanks to be brought on board. Please don’t choose advisers on tribal lines, which has been one of the reasons of your failure.
    1. UPND SG should be replaced, when he speaks he parrots word for word on behalf of supreme leader HH
    2. Replace HH, the man is incorrigible. He’s a know it all leader, and voters detest that.
    3. UPND must begin to praise and criticize govt in equal measure. Don’t just criticize for the sake of it, PF is doing some things pretty good.
    Failure to change strategies, I can guarantee you the road to 2021 destination is extremely bumpy for you.

Please create more recreations parks for children and youth in Lusaka. WE HAVE TOO MANY BARS. And also develop more markets for the traders , i have noticed that they are slowly getting back to the streets. We need tarred roads in our compounds. Let our votes not just end up in dances, beers ( for those that drink ), T-shirts and Wrappers(Vitenges). WE need UNIFORM DEVELOPMENT . LUSAKA needs a FACE LIFT.

  32. What’s is there to celebrate about? Majority of voters stayed away as they see these by elections a waste of time. It’s good these thugs won so when they continue to fail to deliver, they will have excuse for more time to deliver. Also ba PF try to uphold the rule of law all the time there are elections. A general election is far different from a by election by forewarned. People are racing for the loot of the national treasury which is only being done by the thugs in PF. If you can’t beat them, join them. To much poverty and corruption has ruined our country.

  33. Vote rigging starts by denying the opposition the right to hold campaign rallies and meetings, denying them fair coverage by state owned media platforms and subjecting them to political violence.Kambwili was denied the right to hold a rally in Chifunabuli despite being in possession of a police permit. Such things trigger violence. I stayed away from voting yesterday just for these reasons. Let the PF continue rigging and ‘winning’.But as the Bembas say “inshiku mutanda tashichela mumo”

  35. Zambians hate insults, especially insulting the elderly.. Zambians don’t like to speak ill of another person especially where there is no evidence. Zambia are peace loving people.

    My advice to HH and Kambwili..
    1. Be humble.
    2. Tender good check balances to the ruling party.
    3. Commend where it is due
    4. Advise positively
    5. Tell the nation what you will do for people.
    6. Do not talk about corruption without evidence.
    7. Do not promise Zambians that you will deal with ECL if ( and not when) you come into power because Zambians think you are just bitter because you were fired and Zambians do not like bloodshed or revenge.
    Listening to your speech one time when you said… Ka Lungu kwati kwalikwata fimofimo (I cant remember exactly, but insulting word), and continued to say,,,…

Easterners on the other hand must stop being subservient and submissive to Southerners.Voters in Eastern Province must make it their mission in 2021 to counter every single vote in Southern Province. This is the only way to defeat tribal voting patterns. Easterners we are counting on you.

    • There are those of us that are more concerned about the nation going no where. Our concerns would be the same even if it were HH brokering fire tenders at the expense of the average Zambian. We’d hope for an electorate that is not blinded by party affiliation.

  39. Zambia is slowly tilting towards one party state.Multipartism is just on paper.There are factors that are leading to this.One of the them is fragmented opposition parties that have divided their voice.They do not offer credible voice to ruling party.The other thing is voter apathy.Most voters are tired of seeing the same people on the ballot paper.As a result,they have grown weary of voting.
    The most critical one is ignorance and poverty.Most voters are ignorant of importance their vote has in changing their destiny.They would rather vote for a riff-ruff than voting for people who can add value in political arena.The other thing,is selfishness of the opposition.The candidates that they propel for leadership are those who are appealing to the voters.

  40. Dear Miles, please do not over rejoice because you have been employed now as the actual work has not started. The vote you were given is not indeed a free one but one that you must work for. Remember the promises the PF made to the electorates and please do not let them down. We expect a better council and DO NOT ALLOW LATE COMING AND SOCIALIZING WHILE AT WORK like it happens when you visit the Zambia Revenue Authority offices. There time is shared between socializing and business especially by the females. Kachaka would have sang “it is true”.

  41. Shame to the opposition for losing lamentably.
    Please tell us what you intend to do if/when we vote for you which PF has not done.

    We are tired of corruption, corruption without evidence.

    Change your strategy.

  42. Politics as they are known in Zambia: Politics of recycling. Once a deputy minister in government, he has decided to join politics of recycling at a very early stage. He is now the new mayor for the sleeping town of Lusaka. Politics of poverty, and not of principles, have really taken root in Zambia. How the mighty have fallen and risen through sebana wikute! All is well because of constitutional rights.

  43. There is an issue with the opposition, agreed, but this is more to do with what it says about voters. Voting into the mayor-ship an opportunistic political pendulum like Miles Sampa. Objective people will have a sense that the climate in Zambia is that of striving by any means to get into a ‘lucrative’ position and all the privileges (honest and dishonest) that it provides. As long as the type of political and governance landscape remains the same, nothing will change in Lusaka.

  44. Good afternoon Adolf I hope you have dried your eyes and can now sober up as what you have once again witnessed. This will repeat itself in 2021 as long as you remain at the helm with your side kick Great Bag of Maize whose only credentials are his once upon at time deep pockets gotten from government coffers when he was minister for the defenseless! Let us go for a convention and choose leaders who can win us an election we will never defeat PF in our current form even without so much violence we have been whipped to size? You are not one we can sale easily. We know in 2021 you will merge with someone who once called you names and keeps fainting at the site of a police cell but read what the Mast says of him.

  45. Guy Scott underated the President like UPND losers do. Where is he? Underrate him at your own peril.

    • Guy Scott actually underestimated the greed of the Zambian politician. I would celebrate that cautiously. In effect he predicted our current dilemma. We lead in poverty, corruption and a lack of accountability. What good does it do us that you won all those political jostling and sent our nation backwards in the process?

    • Sounds like a alien from another planet who doesn’t know that in Zambia people vote and that’s how Miles is Lusaka Mayor.
