The Ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has formally lodged a complaint with the Electoral Commission of Zambia against the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND)’s the continued use of rallies and roadshows despite the ban by ECZ.
In a statement made available to the media and signed by the PF party secretary-general Davies Mwila, PF said that UPND on 30th June 2021 defied the directive ECA directive with what the party described as impunity by holding roadshows in Mazabuka.
The party provided the evidence to ECZ and urged the commission to quick and appropriate action against the UPND.
Below is the full statement
RE: PETITION AGAINST UPND’S VIOLATION OF ECZ DIRECTIVES NOT TO HOLD ROAD SHOWS AND PUBLIC RALLIES.
We wish to bring to your attention that the United Party for National Development (UPND) has continued to violate your directives to ban all manner of public rallies and road shows.
On 30th June, 2021 the UPND DEFIED your directives with impunity and held road shows in Mazabuka District.
We are hereby beseeching your office to take appropriate action against the UPND.
Find enclosed the evidence of their road show.
Looking forward to your quick and appropriate action.
Cc: Electoral Commission of Zambia Chairperson
GO BACK TO SLEEP !!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU DOWN BY 4.6 PERCENTAGE POINTS ACCEPT IT,
BIG BABIES DONT CRY
AT LEAST WE ARE NOT SEEING UPND DOING CAIMPIGNS AND ROADSIDES IN THE COPPERBELT. ITS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT MR MWILA IS TALKING ABOUT. MR MWILA MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A CAMPAIGN PERIOD. PA BWALI TABALOLESHA UMUNOBE PA KANWA. AFTE R ALL PF HAS ALWAYS BEEN CAMPAIGNING IN FORM OF PARTY MOBILIZATION EVEN OUTSIDE THE CAMPAIGN PERIOD.
Tikki go fcuk yourself.
Kwati fibaiche, ati mushine kailinaiwe nakushina. Just because ba Kambbwili has been punished others should also be punished.
kaizer that will be difficult ??
assist me and explain how you do it
Edgar China Lungu, the Obese brothers GBM & CK, the UK troll KZ, they fit nicely in Lusaka Central Prison on August 13. Why? Oh, that’s simple: corruption, stealing, thieving, killing,etc……
These things are not mourning KK
PF should not be worried, rallies and roadshows will not deliver a winning song if the winning song has not been developed. UNPD has no winning song. Pay attention to LAZ, some NGOs and foreign powers with interest in our resources.
This is very strange indeed. A Ruling Party accussing an Opposition Party of Committing Hate Speech, Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing? Where was the Police and the National Army when the Opposition Party was committing these crimes? Does the PF have the Evidence of UPND Alliance committing these alleged Crimes? What is meant by “Enthnic Cleansing ” we wonder? Is PF now accussing UPND Alliance of the Gassing Crime? PF run a danger of Opening a Can of worms. That will backfire on PF becoz fingers are pointing at them for having gassed 50 Citizens. The writing is on the wall.
Look who is complaining. Just start pretending to sort out the economy in the next 42 days that you have.
Since this is supposed to be a Christian nation,were you honest enough to report Kambwili from your party for his illegal holding of rallies, tribal divisive campaigns and going to offer another fake apology at ECZ.
I don’t understand the logic of tikki and Emmanuel Chanda. I thought that ECZ had banned campaigns and roadshows during the mourning period out of respect for our founding father Dr Kenneth David Kaunda. I took it that the ban affected campaigns and roadshows throughout the country. I don’t have the evidence but if it is true that UPND conducted campaigns and roadshows in Mazabuka, then , surely, they contravened the ECZ directive. What would the two gentlemen say if the same was done by PF? I am very sure that the duo would be speaking a different language.
PF IS DOING IT ALL THE TIME MAKE NO MISTAKE
IN MUMBWA AFTER HOURS AND IN NDOLA
REMEMBER WHATS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE IS GOOD FOR THE GANDER
Tikki come here I will tape your a.s.s. to your mouth
Wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyuwiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu wiyu.
After burying our Forefather, our founding hero, a galant man and the noble iconic figure; the architect of our Zambian Dream, we will go flat out to deliver one ECL to State House through normal channels whether spaka likes it or not. Whether LAZ likes it or not, whether ECZ likes it or not. The Elite People of the Zambian Enterprise are currently morning and when this is over it is high gear whether the deads are road showing or rallying since the ECZ have gone blind with one eye. We will clobber Upndead at the polls politically, peaceful and cleanly.
Iam back and so excited.
This is a complaint to ECZ, how do you copy (CC) to ECZ again? Anyway that aside, the complaint is only to ECZ. UNPD must learn that you do not always write (Copy) to the whole world when you complain about issues in your own country. If you copy the whole world then it simply shows that you do not have eneough power to complain in your own cognizance. How can you say that you are ready to Govern when on other hand you act like a coward, your voice is only important when you copy the AU, SADC and others, what a shame.
PF complains to ECZ and i’v been complaining about troll KZ’s continued infringement of LT comments rules and other abuses such as the use “F” word and violence.Get this Chainama troll off these blogs LT.
Look at whos is talking, When your Kambwili was busy insulting Zambians on the 30th you didn’t have him reported to the ECZ.
@ Emmanuel Chanda, you have made my day. ” Ati pabwali tabalolesha umunobe pakanwa” . Kikiki. And the other guy added ” kwati fibaiche, ati mushinemo naiwe pantu nakushina”
Someone needs to raise voice against this blatant violation of ECZ orders. It is not just a violation, but spreading deadly corona virus in the country.
UPND has brought us in this critical situation of Covid19 today. It is high time that ECZ took strict action against HH and UPND.
Is there any provision to de-recognise UPND as political party for being responsible for death of so many people? Can HH be dragged to court on charges of mass murder by spreading Covid19?
There should be multiple complaints against HH and UPND in different police stations across the country. He is killing people for his greed.
Good that the complaint has been lodged. Now ECZ must act swiftly and take stern action against HH and his gang.
One has to be cruel like Hitler to execute this genocide. HH is proving to be even worse than Hitler.
Has anyone read about holocaust? Does anyone find any similarity here? Hitler killed millions in gas chambers and HH is killing by spreading the virus.
ECZ, it’s time to show that you are not a toothless lion.
Kenneth Kaunda’s death and HIS State funeral HAVE greatly de-campaigned the PF in this years general election. KK”s industrialization program and his democratic credentials, especially the acceptance of a loss in the 1991 general election, makes the PF pale into insignificance. The respect KK had for the will of the people which made him hold elections before the official end of his term of office makes the PF seem as if it is a pure dictatorship! INDEED THE CURRENT GOVT AND THOSE OF THE FUTURE WILL HAVE A LOT TO LEARN FROM KK. MAY THE LORD GRANT PEACE TO KK’S SOUL.
Covid 19 was spread by PF ‘s campaigns disguised as project inspections. If it was not for ECZ to ban Fatboy Kambwili he would have been campaigning and spewing hate speach even on KK burial day.
Kambwili does not learn lessons. I have warned him several times. If PF decides to cage again for spewing hate speach will he complain? And thats exactly what is awaiting Kambwili after 12 August whether UPND or PF wins. When CK and GBM rejoined PF I did not hear Edgar wagwa Lungusha issue a wellcoming statement. Lungu does not forgive. He is the total opposite of HH who welcomed the two id1ots and only to to stabbed in the back by same two id1ots.
Kambwili was insulting Zambians during KK morning period in CB as of 30 June 2021. Why has Davis Mwila decided to point a finger at…
This is childish on the part SG Mwila and PF. They are reporting UPND Alliance to ECZ becoz the UPND Alliance first reported to ECZ. CK apologized for PF holding banned Rallies and Road Shows. Who doesn’t know that PF is using Tribalism to try and win this Election. PF have no meaningful Campaign messages in this Election. They have no answers to high cost of living, PF Gassing 50 Citizens, PF having committed many extrajudicial killings since 2016, PF Corruption and Patronage, PF Cadre Violence and thuggery etc. Zambians will defend their :”One Zambia One Nation ” moto. PF is igniting a Rwanda type of Civil War in Zambia and People reject this. PF is dividing Zambians rather than unite them. On August 12 Zambians should vote out these PF Corrupt Tribalists.
