The National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate Joseph Chishala has scooped the Roan parliamentary seat.

Roan Constituency Returning Officer Emmanuel Makulila declared Mr Chishala as a duly elected Roan Member of Parliament after polling 8, 665 votes to beat Joel Chibuye of the ruling PF who polled 5, 533 votes.

And UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has congratulated the Alliance partner NDC for scooping the Roan constituency by-election.

“Special congratulations to newly elected member of parliament, Engineer Chishala and my brother Dr Chishimba Kambwili for putting up a spirited fight. Together we shall make it,” Mr Hichilema said.

“Many thanks also go to our party members and supporters who joined us in supporting and voting for our colleague from NDC. We all know who is causing the country untold misery, let’s unite and democratically remove them from the driving seat,” he wrote on Facebook

“Mwabombeni abena Roan.”

Meanwhile the PF has retained the Bahati seat after beating the UPND.

    • Verdict delivered. Congrats NDC, cause to worry and back to the drawing table PF. Interesting readings
      That is like a message well delivered in Roan. Although you win some, you lose some, the Roan Constituency bye election could be a wake up call or a defining moment. Beaten clean. Roan Constituency flips PF seat. Double h is now embodied. He is feeling mellow. Will that win traverse across the Kopala?
      In Bahati, congrats PF. That was a whooping victory and I hope it wasn’t the empowerment funds. But a win is a win. Democracy served. The people have spoken and therefore, the Ayes have it, the ayes have.

    • So all those queues of voters PF was giving K10s, K30s, K50s didn’t vote for them?

      It’s a lesson to PF. You can’t use money to hoodwink voters. Congrats to clever Roan voters, who have seen that the Kasaka kandalama is empty. PF00Ls have bankrupted Govt.

      But what can you do? The people have spoken. It’s all about them.
      At the end of the day, they want a life. Whoever had a better message carried the day. For the winner, its work from the word go. Otherwise 2021 won’t be smiling. Once again congrats NDC, congrats PF.

    • This is not the first time PF has lost on the Copperbelt. Remember we have had independent and MMD Mps there before. Whilst it is disappointing for PF it is not a clear sign that the province has changed.
      Is the pact going to field Kambwili instead of HH in 2021? That is where the chemistry lies.
      There will be no pact in 2021.

    • @Mr Kudos, it’s not about PF campaign managers and their strategies. It’s about LUNGU’S GOVERNMENT failure to perform to people’s expectations. Lungu has a presidential plane at his disposal but he goes and splashes millions of dollars on another plane. Meanwhile he can’t pay civil servants on time, he can’t pay university lecturers and students, he arrogantly takes away meal allowances from vulnerable children, his FRA can’t pay peasant farmers. On top of that he is running the most corrupt regime since independence. Chingola is now a ghost town, thanks to Lungu’s corruption. Instead of being tough on those KCM indian crooks he is busy hosting and dining with Argawal at state house. Roan and Mufulira’s Kantanshi constituencies always lead the revolt against governments. Watch…

    • If you want to catch a thief, send a thief! Kambwili is a pure thief from the thieving PF. He fully understands the thieving tricks by PF. Hence he quickly detected and countered rigging attempts by PF. That is why NDC won in Roan On the other hand, UPND still does not fully understand how PF dribbles them in rigging. In Bahati PF rigged with easy without being detected.

    • The entire Copperbelt needs to be turned into a battleground province, that way PF can have competition. Also, we need a very prominent person from the Copperbelt to stand as an independent in the next Presidential Elections.

      Someone with clout and resources but with great roots in Southern and North Western Provinces because none of the current crop of presidential aspirants can’t win against PF. I am UNIPist and I am interested in making sure we are truly a democracy with real competition in place.

      May democracy win and congratulations to Kambwili and his team.

No funding in government ministries, No funding in foreign missions and No payment of living allowance to Zambian students abroad. These are signs of a failed government

  3. Congratulations to the winner. PF should have been proactive to the plight of the people of Roan rather than wait for elections. All the same the winner should concentrate on the solutions required to revamp LUANSHYA rather than being confrontational. Wishing you the best. Only one can win at a time.

  5. This is one of the best happenings in our country. Weldone Kambwili and your NDC. PF is now the most annoying party on the copperbelt and this is not just a one off , it is a change coming to remove PF and MMD.We voted in PF to rid off MMD but down the road Bowman appeared, then Dora, then shared the same platform with Rupia …what an insult to the people of Zambia.
    Kambwili bebelepo aba ba pompwe abena Mumbi, father Bwalya, Jean Kapata, Bowman, Amos Chanda na Kampyongo. Shame to PF SG..wacepa teti iwe icolekane na Kambwili. Shame to PF

    • The original green PF was distorted by bringing in the likes of Dora, Bowman, Vincent Mwale.It is not the PF that Sata brought to power. It is very disappointing that even the original greens like Jean Kapata and Mumbi Phiri danced along with this visionless leadership. Anyway they did this for themselves.PF must be panicking. The revolution normally starts from the copperbelt

    As CK said, this was a contest between CK and lungu where lungu even deployed the whole cabinet to fight CK in luanshya .

    The people of roan have seen past the dancing and lies on stage.

    I can see a case where lungu attempts to bribe CK into grz.

    Ck , lungu and the remnants of PF are soiled with corruption, don’t associate yourself with them. It is a sinking boat.
    They failed to prove you are corrupt as they alleged , keep true to your self.

      “HH CHASED AND TOLD CHI KALA CHAWISO WIKESAKO KUNO YOU SOLD OUR MINES BY LUANSHYA RESIDENTS” that’s from Mwebantu .news

      This election was won single handedly by NDC. (HH) brought nothing to the table. Today NDC is on every one’s lips and UPND is sliding into oblivion. A new party like NDC can easily replace UPND’s 2nd place in 2021 and UPND will be a distant 3rd.
      Today Kambwili is a saint, in 2021 the UPND will be insulting him.

    IT WAS A GRAVE MISTAKE TO FIRE KAMBWILI BY LUNGU AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO PF.
    I HAVE TOLD YOU THAT DORA,BOWMAN AND ALL THESE MMD MINISTERS ARE NOT DOING ANY GOOD TO PF.
    THE ROAN BY ELECTIONS WAS CONTEST BETWEEN LUNGU AND CK AND LUNGU HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT YOU CAN NOT TAKE PEOPLE FOR GRANTED.

  16. Congratulations NDC.but please remove losers (UPND) from the equation!!!Kambwili won Roan seat alone because HH only went there for one day.Believe you me,HH’s UPND would have never beaten PF in Roan.BUT YES,KAMBWILI IS VERY STRONG IN LUANSHYA!!!Am a very honest political expert.This is a huge loss for PF and it may have severe political consquences in urban areas in 2021 should Kambwili team up with HH’s UPND!!Kambwili can deliver thousands of urban votes to UPND where HH has failed to win since 2006!!!MOREOVER,THIS COULD MARK THE END OF GBM’S DAYS AS VEEP IN UPND TOO BECAUSE HH WILL BE WORSHIPING KAMBWILI DAY AND NIGHT!!!
    but as usual,UPND lost terribly in Bahati where it has never won since 1998!!!Hence,Kambwili now holds the Key for HH’s success in 2021 if CK wont stand as NDC…

    • I beg to differ on your analysis. It was the combined support of UPND and CK’s faithful followers that saw NDC winning. Add to that some disoriented PF members who have been honest with themselves that PF with Lungu at the helm is no longer making sense.

      6

      2
    • UPND faithful followers? Where? Copperbelt? There’s nothing Kaponya (HH) can bring to the table on the Copperbelt. Kambwili got those numbers to NDC alone. UPND has never held a Copperbelt seat.

      As Njimbu has said, GBM will soon be displaced and (HH) will be kissing the dirty behind of the leopard day and night. Look at the pathetic performance of UPND in Bahati. A new party less than 1 year comes on the scene and they turn tables in Roan. UPND of 21 years still a failure with (HH) as SHlT hole president.

    • You say so because you want to distabilise the pact. The Fact is that NDC needs UPND and UPND needs NDC for 2021 to go through. CK will lure CB, northern Luapula and Lusaka to NDC while UPND will get Southern, Western,Northwestern, central and Lusaka also. PF will only remain with Eastern kaili bena bashalila munuma lyonse.

    • UPND brought something to the table to help NDC’s victory by NOT putting forward their own candidate, they avoided splitting votes and that helped NDC too. In 2016, UPND had its votes in Road and the entire CB, far better than in the past. It those UPND followers and those who are disgruntled with the PF, combined that gave the NDC victory. So UPND should not be ignored in this victory!!

    I’m a Luanshyan, and a proud Kopala and I state here that Kambwili one-on-one can white wash Edgar Chagwa Lungu through out the Copperbelt and to the moon and Back; Heavy weights in Politics still do exist… Hint Hint… Roan is a classic example.

  19. This should serve as a wake up call! Power lies with the people…and people change. We shouldn’t take it for granted that what was yesterday will be today and tomorrow, no. We’ve seen arrogance creep into our leaders, detachment from reality etc. These are mordern times, times of the cellphone and social media, meaning even people in far flung , previously unreachable areas now have access to truth as well as propaganda. The PF must start exercising democracy within themselves, this is what will make them stronger. Embrace opposing views…endorsing sole candidates for 2021 will only weaken the party. People like KBF should be allowed to challenge ECL internally..cadre-ism only benefits a few and alienates the masses! Roan & Bahati were unnecessary by-elections…

The people of Luanshya have done a Donchi Kubeba on PF after all the food and money poured in Luanshya. Well at the end of the day Kambwili has proved his influence in Luanshya and given serious headaches to the PF leadership. But hopefully we shall now return to work and embrace each other as Zambians.

  23. The loss of Roan Seat is the beginning of the end for PF and ECL. Correct me, but this is the first time PF has lost a parliamentary seat in a by-election since 2011. Secondly, Copperbelt is a huge determinant in presidential election wins. Yesterday I advised ECL and PF on this forum to ensure that they win Roan, otherwise they should start packing. Copperbelt province is the BEST predictor of presidential election loss, since Kaunda error. The food riots that took out Kaunda’s regime begun on the Copperbelt in 1986; at that time Lusaka people thought Kopalas were crazy, until 1990 arrived. CB has always lead the way, and today PF and ECL are dead worried. No more taking people for granted…otherwise they are on the way out in 2021.

      Keep your arrogance like how your campaign manager in Roan, one Bowman displayed. Imagine a so called campaign manager seeking for votes, going to the mall and having his ‘mimbulus’ chase the people from the shop he was entering saying you are CK’s people move out the honorable wants to enter! Such thuggery and you expect to win? Continue your self destruct mode enough is enough!

They know that these chaps are getting paid and given a chance they would not vote for PF. Using these morons during campaigns is clearly fooling people who are hungry, not getting paid, not able to send children to school etc. Sensible people will not vote for PF because the OVER RATED KAIZER ZULU has brought a K10.00. This is what the sensible people of Roan have observed. Congrats Kambwili and UPNDC.

This is the bitterest, most painful,most shameful,most expensive loss ever inflicted on any political party and President in power in Zambia`s political history.The whole PF is in mourning.CK and his NDC, with very little at their disposal, have delivered the special message that PF has been refusing to accept from many quarters: “You will not perpetually buy political power with money and corruption of the electorate”.PF should count the cost.One man, Kambwili, will cause threir downfall.

    • He initiated their down fall right from day 1 they dubiously expelled him and by buying Musenge to force eject CK from parliament.They were not comfortable with CK’S presence in Parliament gave them headaches!But I am shocked with the way mumbi phiri and jean kapata have turned against CK!!!!

  34. Both candidates were not good enough. Did the PF imagine that they could win with that former DC? It shows the caliber of their SG, bweleni ku bantu. Edgar didn’t have a message of hope for the people of Roan, did he think by dancing like a clown would win him an election? His speech was very pathetic, I didn’t expect such to come from a sitting President. Has he started taking jenkem? The Roan seat was the easiest to take. Both Kambwili and Edgar didn’t have any message for the people of Roan, people just settled for the devil they know

    • @ Ayatollah, my take exactly. I think that PF has become complacent and deal with people with impunity failing to LISTEN. Look how they are treating late salaries for civil servants not even apologetic nor scratching their heads for alternatives. How you connect to people matters, and in that Kambwili has taught them a lesson.

    • Just shows how little you have been following the elections. Joseph Chishala has been a unionist and one of the spokesperson for the miners who lost jobs due to the so-called chinese investors. He’s a man of the people and NDC made a very wise decision in picking him.
      PF started losing ground on the Copperbelt way before these elections and if they do not change or remain as stubborn as they have become, someone shall shed real tears in 2021….

  35. YIPPPEEEE, PF congratulations for your Bharti win. That was a stupendous win. Well done. As for Roan, the people voted for a character/personality connected to an unprincipled person. It was Kambwilis charismatic character that carried the day. The proper analysis of this matter is in the psychology of the voters and the unrurly nature of the people in that region. They are ruffians and believe in false promises. If there is a lesson to be kearned; it’s that PF needs to ensure its MPs represent PF. Kambwili cornered that region was allowed to by PF. He got into the ground and knew the people of Roan, creating a little fifedom of his own. Bharti was different because the PF MP was a professional civil servant who ruled his constituency FOR PF. Never again allow a large character…

    • Never again allow a large character to setup his own mini PF govt in any constituency. Start working now. A strong Secretary General who can mobilise the PF is an absolute necessity. The SG must see to it that PF members serve PF .
      I guess you need to rap into the psychology of the people of Roan and get in there before general elections….get working.
      Over to you SG, get growling discipling your MPs and please, don’t let complacency seat in treating people without LISTENING TO THEM.
      This was just a bad gig….man!!!!!!

  36. No one can hold on to power for ever. This was always coming. When people get tired of you, they get rid of you. Lets put elections characterised by maiming people away because clearly this win for ndc shows people can still independently make up their own mind despite coersion or briberly. When a leader fails to inspire then he or she becomes irrelevant and a non factor and he or she should know that their time us up. Lungu is carrying too much dead weight, he needs to let some people go blind loyalty is catastrophic, as president you dont owe a favor to anyone whom you know is puling you down, cut them lose. Your duty as president is to the people and not to a person this loss in roan should clearly wake you up.

    • Please don’t mix issues. If you think supporting students who riot for failing an exam, then I am afraid the country is headed for worse times than now. Besides PF has won all by elections held yesterday except Mungwi which has gone to FDD. Real democracy is where different parties win representation.

  37. Congrats Zambia! Democracy has won! We must cherish moments when results are announced and candidates accept defeat without question. Well done NDC and PF in Roan;and well done PF and UPND in Bahati. I would like to see more such maturity in our democracy. Democracy need diversity of views and ideas to drive the Zambian enterprise forward. But please no one MP, councilor or Mayor must die. We have not money for by-elections. We must amend our constitution to avoid this expensive aspect of our democracy! God bless Zambia!

  39. Any one can lose elections but we all know that NDC is only Kambwili while PF is the entire govt machinery and it still loses to the influence of only one man? This is very serious.PF has only two things to do, either it puts its house in order or it starts packing. As for NDC, this is not the time to start fighting with PF in parliament but to use this golden opportunity to show the public how you will be debating in parliament concerning national matters.

    • This a very timely free advice!CK, coach him how to handle debates in parliament as an opposition.He must not behave like upAndOWN- walking out or boycotting presidential address. That’s how unip died,boycotted elections because of one man!!Baba mu intesive care unit since 1996!!

  40. “All Politics are Local. An independent MP here and there or a son of the soil here and there does not change the overall Political Landscape otherwise NDC would have scooped all the Ward bye-elections as well.

    Question is, would the people of Roan vote for Kambwili as President of Zambia or worse still Darth Vader?

  41. Congratulations NDC!
    For Pf, be very cautious – the way you have allowed KCm to neglect local businesses will be your downfall. I see Kambwili going there to blast Argawal – and you are finished in Chingola / Chililabombwe too.
    Thankfully it is NDC and not a tribal grouping that is gaining momentum.

  42. So Zambian bloggers…please help. Would it be safe to assume that Bahati voted on tribal lines or does that only apply to Southern, Western and N/Western province voters??

  43. Ba denkede ck is one of the hard working mps we v ever had. Maybe you haven’t been to luanshya and survey. He has done alot. Even his party winning is because of his works. Imagine you pay people to vote for you,distribute ubunga,t shirts cash money etc and end up losing to a newly formed party. Pf assembled all the cabinet ministers to camp in Roan but still lost.

  44. What I can say is that he can win alone that’s a big noo,if upnd they hard any one to stand in by-election pf could have won that by-election now that upnd didn’t stand and supported NDC in that by-election all upnd supporter’s combined with NDC supporters to beat up pf so to me that’s a know 8000 plus votes divide them by two parts then compare them with one part which is of with 5000 plus votes.you know if your child is a failure can you go in class and help him/he to write an exam?if he his/she his a failure nomatter what you can do he/she is a failure.

  45. Few weeks ago, I was in Kasama on short holiday visiting my relative as a native of the Bemba land and the mood is sombre on the faces of people. I had a chat with many people on health, Education, agriculture, salaries and unfinished promises to an extent of even people in the villages like Lukupa, milambo, Mike, and lwauluo, told me that this time around no one is going to cheat them. We have tried to vote Lungu ,one as impyani yabaSata, secondly Lungu said he did deliver because he had less years to run the country, we gave him another chance, we are peasant farmers we have no fertilisers or being paid on time. One lady at Chisokone market said my son has been twice gone and come back from university and this is the only child to go to university. 2021 PF ilimbe, we will teach them a…
