PF Gains a Parliament Seat held by an independent with landslide margins over UPND

Headlines PF Gains a Parliament Seat held by an independent with...

The Patriotic Front has emerged victorious in the just ended Parliamentary by-elections in Lukashya, a seat that was held by an independent.

Party Candidate George Chisanga beat the United Party for National Development (UPND) candidate Mulenga Davis with 13, 421 votes against 2, 684.

Reacting to the victorious news Campaign Manager for the PF Hon. Brian Mundubile said it was teamwork that had made the dream work. He said the PF government with its Pro-Poor Policies remains very attractive and a party of choice for the Zambian citizens and that is why the candidate had emerged victorious.

Northern Province Minister Hon. Bwalya Chungu said it was gratifying to note that the just-ended Campaigns had been truly issue based, with Home Affairs Minister Hon. Stephen Kampyongo urging his Counterpart, the new Lukashya Lawmaker to hit the ground running because he has very little time to prove his worth to the people of Lukashya before being subjected to another test in the General Elections in 2021.

The new law-maker thanked President Lungu and the Patriotic Front for the opportunity they gave him to be a candidate and subsequently Member of Parliament and thanked the people of Lukashya for voting for him in a decisive manner and has promised not to let them down.

In Mwansabombwe ruling PF has retained the Mwansabombwe seat after Mwansabombwe Totaling center returning officer announced the final results around 03:30 hours this morning.

PF candidate Kampampi Kabaso polled 6,478 votes against UPND candidate Sunday Maluba who polled 1,522 votes translating into a difference of 5226 votes between the two candidates.

In third position was NAREP candidate Musengu Victor who polled 400 votes ahead of Leadership Movement candidate Jason Mwanza who got 285 votes while Josephine Chama of UPPZ got a portly 129 votes.

And PF Pambashe Member of Parliament Ronald Kaoma Chitotela has described his party’s victory in the Mwansabombwe Parliamentary by-election as a clear indication of the confidence that Zambians have in the leadership of President Edgar Lungu.

Mr. Chitotela has since assured the people of Mwansabombwe that the PF will not betray the trust and confidence they have showed as the party is resolved to deliver on its campaign promises.

The Pambashe law marker also said that the victory in Mwansabombwe by-election is another clear indication that the PF and President Edgar Lungu are headed for a landslide victory in the 2021 general elections.

Mr. Chitotela also called on the people of Luapula to register in masses as voters as the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) is set to commence the voter registration exercise on October 28 2020 ahead of the 2021 general elections.

The Mwansabombwe seat fell vacant following the death of the incumbent MP Rogers Mwewa who died in July this year.

  3. Upndead, your strategy didn’t work.
    Kaponya kleptoh² remains strategyless even unto this day.
    1. The nigga kleptoh² insults EN, the female who whipped and wiped his a$s at the 2016 debates.
    2. The nigga kleptoh² insults the mwinelubemba on his royal seat.
    3. The nigga kleptoh² insults Zambian’s intelligence over his privatization oversight.
    4. The nigga kleptoh² uses insults at the rally in bembaland Kasama.
    Last time I checked, insults are no strategy.
    The upndead is full of nothing but insults thanks from blogs to rallies. Twafwa. The sodomites are mean.
    Whip their a$$es these kleptos.

  4. We told the under5 and his cohorts that do not celebrate too early when you see crowds in Mwansabobwe. Whoever advises HH told him to go to someone’s house and insult them in their own language. Later you ask them for a meal. There is only a few months before 2021 elections and someone needs a miracle.

  6. It is not a surprise in bye-elections for a ruling party not win and in their stronghold.

    We saw how the the government machinery moving in full swing to show power and the whole 3 weeks was like the only development bye-elections.

    Congratulations to PF though just cekebrate for a while time is a still catching up with you.

    PF must go!

  8. We’ve always told Kadansa and his Social Media Party that you can’t win elections on social media. Only Garry Nkombo did real campaigns because he met people on the ground, the rest was just self deceit. He thinks Patrick Mucheleka can win him votes? He’ll cry again

  9. Kasama came to a standstill when HH entered Northern Province. pictures of crowds were shown all over showing that change has come. These photographers are cheating HH especially this Chella guy. Out of that crowd HH addressed only 40 had voters cards. Just like PF having a mammoth rally in chief Mukuni village. Look at the votes counted do they equal to the crowd that attended the rallies.go to.village that is were you will find true voters, not in town.in town can you elected through faceook.am usrprise that HH has over. 4million likes, where are these likes? By the way where is this Youth Movement?

  10. Imwe I have not slept all night. I have even lost my voice celebrating. Commiserations to the upnd camp. Hope they accept these results. We thank alm our supporters and every one who participated including the upnd. This is the nature of democracy.

    As for now the party continues. Spaka tarino and the rest please do not feel disheartened. Do not hide away from commenting just because you have lost. Filachitika. I am sure akapita ku new kasama

  12. #Zambian Citizen, enjoy your short term victory.

    What I can remind you is that the once mighty MMD won bye-elections even where they were not strong enough.

    But where are they today? We expected UPND to be the third distance or so given the popularity of the party in Luapula and Northern bloc.

    The UPND tried its best under difficult circumstances and only fools cannot understand.

    PF must go

  13. In a normal society this election would not be worthy celebrating. opponents were being intimidated, arrested and you celebrate such a win?

  14. A apart from being a tribal tonga cult, UPND will continue and will always be a social media party. They will win everything on social media. Some people even believe voting for HH will stabilize the Kwacha. The faker has not told the voters how he intends to do that but just called the C word.

  15. The arrest does not matter at this point. The mathematics does not in any way suggest UPND anywhere near. Though they gained marginally in Mwansabombwe, Likasha results have been a very big blow for Upnd. The current situation suggests pf bouncing back if they will campaign with the same intensity. As at this morning, no collision as I have been suggesting. Remember am neutral.

  16. Congratulations PF for the convincing win.Your strategies to ring-fence your strongholds are working.UPND you are dealing with a rural and impressionable populace.You can never hope to overturn these votes. Your strategy should to drastically reduce PF landslides.

  19. If the PF wins in the recent bye elections countrywide are anything to go by , then the oppostion have a lot of work to do otherwise this might just be a prelude to the 2021 elections.
    A good lesson for all of us is that online/facebook etc popularity or manipulation are not a good measure of likely victors in the Zambian case

  20. Ha Ha, even RB used to win bye elections with landslide victories, and then the main election came. What was the result? Celebrate at your own peril

  21. The game starts from here . Give the people of Lukasha the water from the taps and proper sewerage because the area is not short of water bodies .They need to start eating cheese like Lusambo does in Dubai Lusaka .Provide these people the same facilities like the ones you have at mansions you have build using tax payers cash

  24. This party UPND needs to stop sponsoring younths on social and start changing names into Musonda,banda ,phiri just to show that UPND is being supported by northers and easterners.Let them not use social media to mislead masses.Your party is a tribal party why creating fake bemba and easterner names.You’re indeed a tribal party.Stop it bakalusa

  25. Luapula and Northern bloc have lost souls. These villagers who lack foresight in choosing a leader.

    They can trade their votes with mealie meal or anything for a short term gain and go back to poverty.

    These are backward in terms of forward thinking. They are short-termists.

    These are people who value rhetoric than deeds. You can lie and bribe them million times still vote.

    PF must go!

  26. Hakalusa Hagain thought having worked with GBM has made him know the Bemba people and therefore he can even start to insult them in their bedrooms in full view of their wives and children. Musankwa you had it coming. Uli muntu umo uwa tumpa sana nge nseleshine waletuka ba Bemba. Surely, a presidential aspiring candidate starting with insulting the Bembas in Bembaland? Tabakufundile umucinshi ba Chitombwa?

  29. By elections are not general elections. Does anyone remember MMD vs PF….Banda thought he was dreaming…same story. MMD won most by elections But in the end PF got the day and you saw what happened in the streets people celebrated like crazy …I know Zambian’s they will vote for UPND just to get rid of this madness.

    The End is near for PF….

  30. What a great day for we the great people of the Northern Province, Paramount Chief Chitimukulu, and all of us Zambians. That victory is a victory not just for ourselves, but for our children and grandchildren to come. We have every duty to guard jealousy the opportunities the country presents against those with a tribal agenda hell bent on fixing people from other regions and ensuring our children, grandchildren and ourselves are denied of these opportunities. Come 2021, we the great people of the North and all of us Zambians will have to turn out again in large numbers to ensure we secure the future of our children and grandchildren. This is no joking matter for us who have been told to our faces and continued to be told by those with a tribal agenda that should they get into power, we…

  31. The opposition campaign managers were locked up. Distribution of relief food during a bye-election. Violence. Not allowing the opposition to mobilize. Tribal campaigns. The rural electorate not well informed. People of Roan constituency who are well informed voted very wisely. I foresee next year’s election results very similar to those of 2006. UPND will win among the town dwellers and lose in the villages

  33. I said it almost a month ago. UPND will lose these elections due to their lack of strategy and arrogance. There you go pobo again! Let the losers start giving the usual excuses.

  34. OK. Next time, UPND speech writers remove the ‘C’ word from your politicians’ speeches especially when you go to where the word is used in its reverent form. To be clear a lot of Bemba households do not casually use those words. It is a banter but rarely tossed around in serious discourse. Give the opponents something equally trivial but less debatable to fumble with. My siLozi friend once asked me what the C word meant and when I told him he said he would never use it again because it was heavy in his language.

  35. When you Insult people on social media and in their houses, do you expect to vote for you?. Even NOW you have continued to insult the Bembas as dull people..do you think they can vote for you?
    Because oF your Insults , I now declare that I will vote for PF though I did not want to vote for PF in the first place. My vote is for PF so that UPND you are told a lesson come 2021. Know that.. this is how people you have continued Insulting feel. They will vote against UPND.

    13
  36. The Bible speaks about faith. Faith is now and is for future. Dream hard UPND for tomorrow to come. Another election will come in 2021 and immediately you lose you will be talking about 2026. We have come to know you and future hopes. Accept the loose and move.

  42. It’s normal to jubilate before we lose. Our kwacha keeps losing its value. The Economy is getting worse. We are graduating without any support from the Govt. I paid k42000 cash plus other expenses for my college to the government of Zambia but I don’t see any vacancies that young blood can take up. Am a youth with an entrepreneurial mind but what can I do without any support or hope?. Grants are being advertised but they are given only to cadres and the people that side government. So much goes to wrong hands and the people that can develop this great nation are left behind. I don’t side any political party but we need change.

  43. When they win the elections are not rigged when they lose the elections are rigged. Can this description be very far from under five thinking. HH just start preparing yourself to find another career, certainly not politics. Privatization option may be the way to go since you did very well above board as you submitted.

  44. Dont let those two victories give you a fake picture of what will transpire in 2021.Somebody will?? When that day comes.For Mwansabombwe & Lukashya is not the entire Zambia.Am trying to woke you up sir.Anyways RIP to ?????? in advance???

  45. I would not Judge future elections only on these results but the margin is to much.. HH can still win but he has to be his true self and realise he is not there yet and is still asking for an opportunity from Zambians.
    The alternative is Replace the leadership think outside the box its not only HH that should remove current government otherwise they might feel like little gods at some point…So fresh blood or atleast be apologetic and sincere. Apologetic in the sense that whether you like it or not some people feel hurt by you actions on non of… this also applies to Lungu and co.

  46. These opposition parties need to team up even if they have different manifestos to remove the PF government and put back the Zambian economy on a growth trajectory after they take over. With such fragmentation, these fake victories from the PF will continue

  47. Of course with all government machinery at its command who would have expected a different result if not only a few hopefuls really feeling the hurt! It is not that PF cares for the results as to change anything in these constituencies and the people have indicated that they are happy with the way they are living! It’s true that one makes choices that are comfortable to them thus the result! Zambians are diverse in their analysis of situations therefore if this is what makes them comfortable and it is not forced on them then it is what it is learn to live with it have your cake and eat it! After all numbers define democracy in majority! However any dishonesty can finally be atoned by the way the people are served! Divergent views in the minority be gratified that you have given democracy…

  48. Who is Victorious PF Candidate George Chisanga? There are ten people in that picture. Ati journalism yamasiku ano!!

  49. Opposition parties strategists dont appreciate that it is difficult to campaign to individuals who are used to getting free benefits.The Luapula/Northern regions are the poorest.Any slumps in living standards are less felt by them compared to more richer regions.Campaigning on issues like high cost of living,corruption, unemployment are less important. PF are well aware of this.Short-term benefits are more vital to the rural power.Their strategy is to give handouts like clothes,social cash transfers and electricity.They are the only party with the financial muscle to give almsThe rural poor know this,also.Unless demographics change,Oppositions will always struggle to change minds

  50. We can see PF is now very happy they won the 2 MP Seats. Does this give PF the 2/3 Majority Vote to pass Bill Third Term into Law? If Bill 10 is passed into law then Zambia will become a One Party State Dictatorship yet again. All those celebrating the PF win will be haunted. The writing is on the Wall.
