Former Republican President Rupiah Banda has been nominated to lead an elections observer mission to the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly Elections in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA) nominated Mr. Banda to be its lead observer for the forth coming general elections.

Mr. Banda will lead a team of 24 observers drawn from civil society organizations and election management bodies from across africa.

EISA Executive Director Denis Kadima says his organization is honored to invite the former president to be its lead observer to the elections, which he has described as critical.

EISA is a Pan-African Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) specialized in democracy, elections and governance and promotion of credible elections on the African continent and it’s observation mission in Nigeria will be a short term mission which is expected to last for nine days starting on 12th to 20th February.

This is contained in a statement to media by First Secretary for Press and Public relations at the Zambian High Commission in South Africa Naomi Nyawali.

    • RB is not an honorable man, this is a man who has failed his country on all indices available for Zambia.

      He has single handedly collapsed institutions in Zambia. I really cannot see how this thing can bring honour to Africa.

    • A great choice. He conceded to Sata with no problem which can’t be said about a wamuyaya leader of UPND who hand picks his members to positions. Talk about dictatorship tendencies.
      And by the way the whole of Africa is corrupt!

  2. Has this man accomplished anything as an african leader to head an election observer team. We should learn to reward hard working people in zambia and africa as a whole. This guy was just the ultimate party animal

    • The question you should ask yourself is “how many African leaders conceded defeat in an election ?” You maybe be negative day and night but if he was evil and selfish, Zambia would have had blood staining on our land in 2011. you might not respect him for that but those that understand what he did in 2011 will always appreciate. Am not his fan but that’s the truth

  5. Stop attacking Rupiah Banda unnecesarilly he’s Zambia’s best export in African election observation having accepted defeat and handed over power peacefully in 2011.Very exemplary for the rest of Africa.

  6. Bwezani is a sell out,I don’t think he can be neutral when he conceded it was not
    Out of will,there was alot of pressure.
    So he can sell anything for money.

  7. This guy is a crook and all knew when he was in office was flying across the globe. I bet he’s been to the arctic, Alaska North and South pole on 3 day work business. There is something wrong with people in Zambia who still worship this thief as a great person. He conceded those elections to Sata because he was badly beaten and he had no choice the numbers were so high. Same will happen to your current thief in State house Lungu .all he does is fly and steal. Elections 2021 will do justice for the people of Zambia.
