  1. Boris Johnson, completely free of corruption and winning without bribery or sponsored party cadre violence. Talk about other things maybe. He will have no sleepless nights when he retires.
    We can learn a lot as we prepare for our 2021.

    • Boris Johnson doesn’t even know who bandit President Lungu is…rushing to congratulate him hoping to rush to UK with a begging bowl…slave/master…mentality 2019

    • Just like in Zambia the majority of people that vote are in rural areas and illiterate thats why we end up with Bandit Lungu as President…and it will always be like this in every elections….Kaponyas and thieves will be voted into office because bloggers are in the diaspora and they don’t even vote

    • In UK they don’t gather for inauguration ceremony, why is everyone at State House lining up with allowances budgets at Miti’s office? There is no presidential travel.

    • Now let’s get around all this first. The United Kingdom’s population is around 66 million people with 46 million registered voters. At least slightly over 60% of that figure turned out to vote in last nights election. What am I getting at? Well you must have guessed. There was not a single incident of intimidation or death reported at any of the thousand polling stations dotted around the country and you know what? We got the RESULTS of the ELECTION the MORNING after the ELECTION.

      In Zambia, with a population of 16 or 17 Million people and 3.5 million registered voters you a 30% turnout during elections due to voters apathy election results take 3 weeks to be announced. That is after 20 dead, a thousand maimed and millions side-lined would you hear of who might have one or declared…

    • … won or declared himself winner. Please tell me! Am I missing something here? Let us be serious come 2021 please or else posterity will judge us harshly. We need transparency in our politics. Zambia had really started well. Do you know that we became a beacon of democracy in the 90s when the KK regime fell? Then ba Tata ba Chiluba lost his way and Mwanawasa came to clean up the mess and he did very well until Ba Banda started the rot which he supported a bit during ba Chagwa’s beginnings then he was alarmed at how it just became uncontrollable and he has taken a back step. We know all these things but you sem not care what legacy you will be leaving behind – SHAME!

    • …. Wasn’t it Levy Mwanawasa who appointed VJ as his elections kingpin and VJ became infamous for rigging elections?? Wasn’t it Levy Mwanawasa who overlooked people like Magande etc and sought out RB, who was in retirement, to be his vice president?? They say birds of the same feather flock together, why is Levy unique while the “corrupt” characters he wined and dined with are being condemned??

  2. Boris completely transparent in his politics, do our African leaders (most) have to be white to do the same? If so, a coat of white paint may do the trick.

  3. These are advanced democracies built on the foundation of real integrity and moral values. The choice of leadership is based on the points one articulates to the masses. I listened to their debates on BBC. They were mature and no mudslinging. It will take ages for us, as a nation, to emulate such maturity. In our nation, the candidate who insults a lot is deemed to be the best. If one articulates issues on a point of knowledge, he is deemed to be boring. A great insulter is a great politician in our nation. What a shame!!!

    • Uk government work with USA so when our friienship is bad with USA then Uk
      Will not cooperate with us.Better to remain quiet then to respond to these
      Powers as we need their help.

    • UPND must be renamed “Mapatizya Formula Party.” It is a terrorist H-organisation! Mr. President you are doing a great heck of a job! Let’s develop this country! HH is destined either to Zoo at Kitwe’s Freedom Park or a Cage at the MUSEUM in Livingstone.

  4. The Prime Minister should not except this congratulate message because of it abstract meaning.
    “Campaigner Peter Tatchell has said people face violence and imprisonment just because they are gay.
    The British Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, promised the Olympic diver Tom Daley that he would raise the issue at the Commonwealth summit.
    So, where is homosexuality still outlawed?”-BBC
    “President Lungu says he is confident that under the continued leadership of Mr. Johnson, ZAMBIA and the UK will continue to explore new avenues of cooperation for the mutual benefit of the two people.”-LT
    I just wish the Prime Minister will take this opportunity to advocate for two Zambian sentenced for 15 years just because of this sexual orientation.

  6. Congratulations bwana Johnson. We shall do the same to some Privatization thief here. It will be a political Tsunami in 2021

  7. When you are a beggar and poor you will congratulate anyone without even knowing what they stand for.

  8. “President Lungu says he is confident that under the continued leadership of Mr. Johnson, ZAMBIA and the UK will continue to explore new avenues of cooperation for the mutual benefit of the two people.”…LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL… Cooperation AKA ukulomba.

  9. He should never have bothered. The UK think very lowly of a thieving president depriving his people of the little what could change their lives by looting the natural resources, inept and corrupt leadership.

  10. ECL doesn’t really even understand how the political landscape works in the UK. The electrol process is something to marvel at but the thinking behind the voting patterns can be flawed and littered with a misinformed and lied to electorate. The Prime Minister is not elected directly. He is there because the Conservatives are in power. He is not even the most popular Prime Minister in recent times. The country has never been as polarised as now. In spite of the flourishing ‘democratic’ processes, the future outside the EU does not look good – you have the Tories in power, with a clown of a Prime Minister and trends towards increased right wing maneuvers

  11. I liked the Tories under David Cameron but hardly thought Boris Johnson could have the biggest conservative thumping of Labour party since 1983.However, this defeat by Labour can be attributed to Jeremy Corbyn’s outdated unionist politics. Under Jeremy,the Labour party was being run like the defunct Thomas Cook,which was using eighteenth century business models(strategies) in a twenty first century information age.Its good for Labour that ancient Jeremy is stepping down.How I wish David Milliband was still active in British politics, he certainly has the ability and acumen to galvanise the Labour party back to its winning ways.He did it with Tony Blair while in opposition and as Blair’s right hand man.

  12. since the emerging of upnd we have seen a lot of fights and this due to desperation from their leader who wants to use any means to ascend to power.But surfice to say it will very difficult for him and especially that he as even lowered himself to even allow gay rights,incest,homesexuality,he is a freemanson etc……..God will vindicate this land like it or not period.Give due were it is due don’t like pagans.

  13. President Lungu’s congratulatory message to Boris Johnson is a symbol of respect for democracy. The world has shrunk into a global village. Events developing in one country will affect other States. In UK Mr. Johnson was the chief proponent for BREXIT. It is time to reflect. Zambian Economists, Historians and Political Scientists should interpret as to (a) why Britain opted to pull out of the European Union; (b) why US President Trump is thrilled with Johnson’s victory with promise to forge economic links with UK at the exclusion of Europe. Let’s pray that xenophobia does not evolve in western States.
    (1) Zambia must explore trade links with friendly States in the western and eastern blocks. (2) We need to consolidate agricultural development to feed the entire nation. (3) Develop…

  14. (1) Zambia must explore trade links with friendly States in the western and eastern blocks. (2) We need to consolidate agricultural development to feed the entire nation. (3) Develop national-wide road network. (4) Establish distribution transport system for food to reach out to deficit areas most affected by climate change.
