  1. The losses are Rodgers Mwewa family, wish all that money given to voters should have gone to them and Orphanages Rodgers used to support.
    Those new MPs and their Edgar should praise death, they wouldn’t be so worthy if those didn’t die. Ba Edgar forgot that he was only President because of somebody died.

  3. My president we thank you for your support during these elections. Your hard work makes it easy for us strategists to ensure victory. It is easy to sell your message as the evidence is there for all to see. Great man

  4. Deep down their hearts I don’t think they are proud winners. Stopping the opposition from mobilizing has been the order of the day. Those are sheepish villages who are easily persuaded with a few kwachas. The real test of PF popularity can be an urban constituency such as Roan. PF you can win even next year but as we always say time will catch up with you one day

  5. Where is that crowd that welcomed HH? So that crowd did not vote for him. Betrayed him again. Real voters are in the village. Most of those youths who come to attend rallies don’t even have voters cards. HH please don’t put your energy on social media, stop believing those people on Facebook.

  6. With all due respect state house shouldn’t be issuing party statements. That should be left to a PF Spokesperson not Isaac Chipampe. The presidency itself should learn to separate national and partisan affairs. The opposition and citizens should be vigilant about such misuse of government resources for party agendas.
    Neighbors South Africa are just coming out of a situation in which a ruling party entourage was given a lift to Zimbabwe by a minister on a government plane. This was found to be wrong and the ANC is now reimbursing government.

  7. Congratulations to the ever-green PF and EL for the well deserved and expected electoral victory. Well done. To UPND, thank you for being a ‘good’ groom-mate. Your (UPND) participation in our electoral process is a testimony to our entrenched and enriched democratic process. We urge both PF and UPND to work together and eliminate incidences of violence during election campaigns. One Zambia One Nation.

  8. The comandments of UPND:
    1. UPND is good at insults.
    2. As UPND we always claim victory
    even before election takes place.
    3. As UPND we win by losing
    4. As UPND we are excellent on social
    media but end up insulting the
    same people we want to vote for us.
    5. As UPND pride and arrogance is our
    philosophy. We want to rule the
    country but we refused to work with
    Mwanawasa and Sata without
    knowing that the two were going to
    die in office and easily become the
    republican president.. Chance happen
    to all of us but for us In UPND we
    dont see that.
    6. When we fail to convince people to
    vote for us, we call for Armageddon
    and kill the same people we wanted
    to lead.
    7. As UPND only a Tonga person
    should be its…
