  1. I just pray that Lusaka and Copperbelt does not disappoint us this time around by voting for the most brutal regime in the history of our country. Protect your vote, protect your vote, protect your vote. It took you 5 solid years to exercise your right to vote. Do not let your vote be stolen. Remember opposition leaders and their management teams cannot be everywhere all the time

  2. Very interesting figures indeed….country men and women i would also want to take this opportunity to tell all registered voters that at point in time there’s no politician who can tell us what to do with our armed and loaded voters cards because this time around we are more powerful than ever,the only thing that can tell the Zambian people what to do is
    1.The cost of living,,,,,,,how much are we buying our essential needs,is it normal or does it equates to our daily/monthly earnings?
    2.economical management…..is our economy on the right track or in safe hands?
    3.do we have good medicines in the hospitals or do we have any?
    4.our human rights……are we free to do what we are entitled to do when need arises?
    5.corruption…..in government institutions such RATSA,HOSPITALS…

  3. PF/ECZ thinks that having manipulated the New Voters Roll in favour of PF Strongholds they will win the Elections. They will be shocked to find that HH will pick many votes in PF strongholds. Zambians are Hungry and Angry 4 a change of Govt in 2021 and HH represents that change and hope. Even with extensive Election Rigging ECL will not garner 50% + 1 Vote against HH. In a Run off HH will win with a landslide. ECL is banking on removing HH’s Name from the Ballot Paper for whatever reason. Will that work?

  4. @ The happy one, What do you mean by disappoint. People in Lusaka in Copperbelt will vote for whoever they see fit just like the people in Southern Province. Do not hurt people for exercising their constitutional right to vote for PF. The most brutal regime will never rule this country.

  5. That’s it?? Those are the only voters? You need do one more mass registration.
    By the way, a quarter of those number already died.

  6. Girl power!!! Women you can do it. Would you want a chauvinist like hh who insults women like nawakwi to rule you ? I doubt it. Also it is well known that hh takes mutoto until his eyes turn red and pop out, then locks himself in his office with nalumango. Women think carefully

  7. I see Straight victory for PF.The current problems in the alliance with HH coming up with UPND alliance CB and Lusaka will go to PF by 65%.This leaves UPND with only votes from southern ,western, northwestern and part of central. The figures here are showing that in PF strongholds based on the past data PF has a chance of winning by 75%.If we give UPND central, southern, western and northwestern it means UPND has only 33% of registered voters. Therefore UPND can’t win minus Kambwili to help them in CB and northern region. I see UPND losing by big margins this year. Sorry HH will be defeated. HH needs politicians in the party unlike having abena Milupi.Registered voters:PF strong hold 67% and UPND 33%.UPND try to work with other politicians .Ba Lungu please do great works in Lusaka and CB…

  9. UPND should pray hard to win these elections. The numbers don;t seem to favour them. Eastern province is likely to cancel out southern province while northern and muchinga will cancel out western and northwestern. Central province is quite a neutral province. There is a possibility that the ruling party will still win in lusaka and copperbelt especially if they field strong MP candidates. If the ruling party fields Mps like Hon Malanji in Kwacha constituency on the copperbelt the presidential candidate will also do well. This election seemed to be different from 2011 because the wind of change is not strong. If UPND does not do well in western and north western as they did in 2016 then the chances will be slim. If luapula give the ruling party more than 80% of the votes then the ruling…

  10. @Moscow your analysis is misplaced and wrong at the same time.
    Lusaka is not for PF. Copperbelt is not for PF either nor any other province in Zambia coz the problems which Zambians are facing in every part of the country and not Copperbelt,Lusaka,Northern,Western,Southern,Central or whichever part you are going to mention,NO.We as country have one goal and one responsibility as country to do the right thing.It is ourselves,we the poor Zambian people and not the rich.
    The country is governed by the poor coz the rich will ditch us some day if we are faced with war.so,lets not be swayed by people who are cheating themselves that people will vote for names ati Ba Kambwili,No.Ba Kambwili is also a Zambian just like any other citizen…….Can Ba Kambwili wish Zambians to go through this…

  11. The ECZ seem to have removed the detailed results for all previously held general elections.
    Official election results and voter breakdowns from 1991 – 2016 were available for public view on the ECZ website for many years.
    Why have they removed them? They don’t want the public to independently analyze the voter registration trends.
    THIS IS VERY SUSPICIOUS.

  14. It’s true the New Voters Roll shows that ECZ registered more voters in PF strongholds than HH strongholds. The assumption is that People will vote tribally and HH will not get many votes in Eastern and Northern Provinces. The increase in the number of votes in EP rose sharply confirming that foreigners were registered in huge numbers in that Province. These Election Riggers will be shocked when the bulk of voters in CB and Lusaka vote 4 HH aka Bally will fix it. The majority of Zambians voters are fed up with ECL and PF Misrule and are Hungry and Angry for Change. We shall see.

  15. I wonder why under5 supporters love the useless slogan ati bally will fix it..What is he going to fix! If he has failed to take care of his farm workers! Do you think he will care take of you! By the way how is he going to fix it! He is the same man who almost beat up a fuel attendant over his K 10 change, not heart of the Zambia people..If he had a heart of the people of Zambia we would have seen it during privatization. Bp employee pension fund, Lima Bank workers zero zero..You will know them by their fruits. I can’t vote for hh even if a gun was put to my head.. Privatization of parastatal companies was the most painful.. thing Selling companies like fritters.
