  1. We have a long way to go. Do not get misled by those with an evil agenda. Don’t say I didn’t tell you so when ECL is declared winner. This happens every 5 years, upnd start celebrating before the fat lady has sung. You will cry soon. Us we know the results and are just watching

  2. Ba LT, it’s time to free yourself from PF. Bring back the days of Lusaka Dispatch. You have too intimidated and hence so biased for too long. Freedom is here and Change has come.

  3. The first ECZ poll announcement was stopped by Mazabuka long time MP Garry ! Nkombo with so much fun fair & pomp.

    Before a single poll result is announced, three out of 15 presidential candidates has conceded defeat, congratulated HH.

    It’s like you’re watching a feudal conquest movie, a well sketched kingdom building.

    Who is pulling the strings, when is HH adding appropriate title before his name; His Majesty?

    Whatever you do, don’t blame it on yourself, BLAME IT ON THE RAIN!

    The next generation will judge us harshly.

  4. Makebi Zulu…the half baked wake ni wako lawyer…he runs a lawfirm that represented Chitotela and Kampyongo…with PF fake Judges no wonder both were acquitted…there’s a moron and thieving Lawyer there called Jonas Zimba….big kawalala…they work with PF appointed corrupt Judges…HH should clean up the Judiciary….all PF Judges out….

  5. The people of Zambia have said no to corruption, no to hatred, no to political cadre violence, no to disrespect of the police and the military, no to judicial corruption of allowing Lungu to go for a 3rd term, no to tribalism no to disrespect for budget discipline. To the UPND, please understand what the people want.

  7. SkyLab – The impostor will just change the name and come back again as a UPND cadre married to a muzungu..its a cycle of silly trolling games for it. I dont know why you even gave it credibility especially Fred Ruwe who wrote a whole article dedicated to it.

  8. Really laughable that former teacher Richard Musukwa former Mines Minister lost his seat…they thought people are stupid giving them terminal benefits and gifts in the last hour.

  9. I agree with nemwine: “The people of Zambia have said no to corruption, no to hatred, no to political cadre violence, no to disrespect of the police and the military, no to judicial corruption of allowing Lungu to go for a 3rd term, no to tribalism no to disrespect for budget discipline. No to overpricing government projects with the Chinese to get huges cuts. No to arrongance of people like Kambwili and GBM. No to starving UNZA students so that they can use the cash to feed cadres. No to UNZA killings.”
    I like Easterners they dont have tribalism in their hearts like Kambwili. They give to whoever they want to unite the country. I am sure even Tasila dd not vote for her corrupt father even after benefitting from the very corruption.
    Congratulations HH you are our president unite…

  10. @ 10 kakwata
    Great point and the Zambians again don’t want to see the same people they’ve rejected anywhere near the new government…and if HH starts working with them in any way…..Zambians should go to the streets and start a revolution….NO DEFECTIONS…..Zambians don’t want UPND to become a recycled PF or MMD….there’s a reason why Zambians didn’t vote for Nevers Mumba or losing PF candidates…PLEASE HH DONT ALLOW ANY LOSING CANDIDATES TO JOIN YOU…..like what happened in Zimbabwe…..same thieves who worked with Mugabe for over 30 years are still working with Munangangwa and Zimbabweans expected things to change…and things became worse…

  11. Where are all the tribal baiters…Edgar Chagwa Lungu,GBM ( fat albert), chishimba kambwili & that thief Kaizer Zulu?
