PF Challenges Results from UPND Strongholds, their agents were beaten, not present in verification process-Mwila

Share

Patriotic Front (PF) party Secretary General (SG) Davies Mwila says the party has not verified results from some polling stations in North-Western, Western and Southern as their agents were beaten and chased away.

Mr Mwila disclosed that the party has had no access of Gen form 20, as the party had no representation inhibiting the signing of Gen form 20. Mr Mwila cited North-western, Western and Southern provinces as areas where their agents were allegedly beaten and chased from some polling station. Mr Mwila told journalists at Mulungushi National Results Centre today.

Mr Mwila said the party has already reported the issue to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) who have promised to investigate matter.

“We have already informed the ECZ about our complaint and they have assured us that they will look into it,” Mr Mwila said.

He has however assured journalists that the PF party will win this year’s general elections.

And the United Party for National Development (UPND) National Chairperson for Women, Doreen Mwaba has dismissed allegations by the PF as false.

Ms Mwaba stated that UPND has the Gen 20 forms from all the provinces across and that all political parties have signed including the PF.

Ms Mwaba called on all stakeholders to remain calm and peaceful in order to allow ECZ carry out its mandate in a professional manner.

“I don’t understand why SG Mwila would come and complain about Gen 20 form not signed by his party’s agents here at the results centre when we have the PF signatures on the form,” said Ms Mwaba.

Mewanwhile, the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has appealed to stakeholders to allow the Commission to work without interference.

ECZ Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Nshindano has bemoaned the continued harassment of polling staff by various political parties and other stakeholders.

Mr Nshindano has however advised stakeholders to desist from harassing polling staff and let them work professionally.

He said harassment of poll staff may delay the announcements of election results.

“You need to let all the poll staff do their job in readiness for us to announce the results within the 72 hours we have been given,” he said.

  1. IF ECZ SAYS THEY GET AND ANNOUNCE RESULTS BASED ON DATA SUBMITTED TO THEM WHOSE GEN20 FORMS HAVE BEEN SIGNED OFF BY ALL POLITICAL PARTIES AGENTS, HOW IS THIS COMPLAINT VALID?
    I HOPE HE IS NOT CONTEMPLAINTING TO SAY THE TRIBE SH!T THAT HAS ACTUALLY COST THEM THIS ELECTIONS.

  2. Can the same be said in Lusaka, CB, Northern, Mansa and Eastern where you they weren’t chased and beaten? Take Chingola, as an example: everything is gone to UPND

  5. No results can be announced and declared by any returning officer and presiding officer without a completed and signed form G20. Is this the case? Only Davies Mwila knows.

We not like you, we will hear you but only stick to the rules. If it’s No its No. No more phoning someone up higher the PF corrupt leadership.

  8. Let me be magnanimous and congratulate the Reds and their head, Hakainde Hichilema for beating the odds. By the time the last count is made the tilt would be a landslide.
    The only constant in life is change Zambians got fatigued and has shown.

  9. Nowadays this should be easy to verify. They should have a picture of the representatives signing. While hh has won clearly a cross the country, this problem has existed in some of and upnd strongholds in previous elections . ECZ should independently verify these and find a lasting solution

  10. Its seems PF PVT fell apart in those provinces, but he won’t say that or admit. His bosses are weighing on him heavy. Meanwhile UPND had the rest of the voters do PVT and vote protection for them, “the 12th player on the field”.

  11. Just trying to save face, you are loosing all over at parliamentary level and you expect to win at Presidential level, very dall these PF chaps

  12. Just go in piece bad loosers, you must be real optimists, with the economy in a quagmire, you even expect some votes, how dare you. Is that the reason Kambwili said somebody wrote grade 12 exams on your behalf, SG

  13. The 2021 election results in Zambia is a good lesson for parties whose leaderships are hell bent on looting the resources, leaving the nation is poverty. Wake up and smell the coffee. Edgar Lungu and his PF should demonstrate that democracy works in Zambia. Zambia is largely a peaceful country, Lungu and his group should not be allowed to mess up a peaceful country

  14. Then its good that the AU, EU and the USA observers was there, because the result from the UPND is the right one, PF and Lungu try to steal the election, but we already knew that. HH have won a landslide victory

  15. If you have any complaints you can petition the result through the courts afterwards. That’s what you used to tell upnd when they used to complain about unfairness.

  16. Tribal Accusations has cost the PF these elections, even after hiring buffons like CK to mudslide our President basing his campaigns on tribalism to no avail! Power to the People of Zambia!

  17. We are challenging the tribal violent voting in upnd stronghold. They killed our people there so we won’t rest until free and fair re elections are held again in those three provinces. Remember we have the army to quell any f00I who will attempt to cause problems. I am just at OP headquarters where he held meeting with army commander.

  18. To be fair UPND have no right to force PF to concede when PF have a clear case for review. UPND spent the entire term challenging election results but you can’t accord a few days to a genuine case? The only consoling part is that the people are on your side otherwise fintu could have been Lungu.

  19. KZ, in Zambia we have a professional army, they don’t listen to the likes of you and your mates. It’s over unless you really want the people to sort you out. People are hurting and we can comfortably say that you contributed to these election results. You forgot who your bosses are. The UK won’t even give you asylum because they don’t give it to people with criminal records.

  20. Davis Mwila,Kaizar Zulu and Edgar Lungu in tears…karma has a way of repaying those who unjustly blocked others from freely campaigning.

  21. It’s time to put on makeup; it’s time to dress up right! The muppets are finally walking to the stage for their final act!! Give Mwila and his production team a round of applause and boos please!

  22. Chi colour Mwila, you have lost, just go and drink ur ARV’s give some to ur stup1d boss who is already out of the way, you and ur Pathetic f000ls monkeys are done… Where is they ugly woman who stopped allowances for students…

  23. @Kaizar Zulu it sounds like you are threatening. You need to remember that the Zambian army is not your personal property. The Zambian Army will stand on the right side of history. Once a THUG always a THUG.

    There’s a JAIL cell with you name on it.
