Meanwhile, Munali Constituency has announced consolidated results following delays which were caused by disputed figures on provisional results during the verification exercise.

Returning officer for Munali Hellen Mubita announced the results at about 16:21 hours, to the relief of stakeholders and participants who have waited to hear the outcome of the tightly contested seats in the constituency.

United Party for National Development (UPND)’s Mike Mposha has won the Munali parliamentary seat after polling 35,752 votes.

Independent candidate Thomas Sipalo trailed in the second place with 30,585 votes, leading PF candidate Patrick Samwimbila who came in third place with 29, 214.

  2. It is clear from the results posted that party leaders who have done abysmal need to resign too. MMD leader should be ashamed for being a veteran but out done by newly created political parties. Give young people a chance to change the shape of our country.

  3. But HH should tame his cadres…saw UPND cadres destroying PF offices at the bus station…so is this just the continuation from PF behavior….already feeling disappointed and he hasn’t assumed office yet…if this trend continues HH won’t even finish his first term in office…Anonymous

    The jig is up boy
    Hands behind your back and you have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law.
    Kaizar boy, humility is very important. No more drinking alcohol on the Presidential jet
    We shall get back what belongs to the people from every one of you Ba Mambala

  5. After HH whitewashes ECL overwhelmingly tonight, he will be inaugurated at 10:00 hours. At 14 hrs, the Kwacha would have appreciated. I just don’t know by how much from current below values:
    ZMW 1.000 = USD 0.052
    ZMW 19.294 = USD 1.000

  6. I am at my home enjoying the comfort of my home in ibex with my kids and beautiful wlfe. Where else can I go? I have my businesses all over the world to run and employ many zambians regardless of the election outcome. If you think a new government will make you rich then you are headed for disappointment. Only you can make yourself what you aim to be in this life. Neither edgar nor I will suffer even if we lose because we are hardworking people who can continue to survive even without public office. To those threatening violence, come to my house if you are man enough.

  7. @Anonymous, let us not rush to blame HH over cadres behavior, the man is not even in office yet so we all still don’t know how he’ll approach and deal with these thugs behavior.

  8. NOTE THAT THE CURRENT CADREISM WAS CREATED BY CHILUBA 25YEARS AT STATE HOUSE
    FOLLOWING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE VENDERS DESK INSTEAD OF THE EARLIER PROPOSED YOUTH DESK.

    I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE INVITED TO STATE HOUSE TO DISCUSS THE YOUTH DESK BEFORE
    IT WAS TURNED TO VENDER DESK WITH THE THEN SELF-HELP ASSOCIATION AND VENDERS ASSOCIATION, SO WE
    SHALL SOON BE GUIDING OUR NEW UP COMING GOVERNMENT NOT TO MAKE A MISTAKE RIGHT AT THE BEGINING AT ALL

    SO IT IS VERY WELL

  9. HH was hindered,restricted and unfairly encumbered from equal campaigning by Lungu’s GRZ and now karma spoken loudly ,kikikiki .

  10. @Mulezi
    Not blaming HH but the thuggery type of behavior that’s what led to this revolution…the “do you know who I am” behavior….the “I can ruin your life” kind of behavior….arrogance brought Lungu and his thugs down…Makebi and Tutwa….
    Am a big fun of coexistence….let Zambia heal and move on as a country

  11. I agree with Mulezi let us not rush to blame HH over cadres behavior, he hasn’t yet even gone into office. Patience is a Virtue

  12. Not only Kaiser, whatabout zambian citizen, oval head, thorn, Kawasaki, that skull not forgetting the guys on radio chimba chushi, Elvis etc. These are the guys who were encouraging the wrongs that pf were doing all along yet the country was bleeding. Even had all sorts of excuses for 10 years of hard core load shedding, corruption, runaway economy and debt, cadre violence etc. These guys should be charged for treason for being so dull and encouraging all the wrongs. Lets not forget words like, he is bitter, under 5, kaponya hh etc.

  13. Edgar Lungu was long doomed by the rotten economic indicators,the lies and the corruption.Now he needs to be held accountable.

  14. no formal announcement has been made yet. I wouldnt celebrate if i were upnd members. You will end up disappointed

  15. Throw your pangs and whatever weapon you have into the rivers. Go and find a PF supporter and give them a hug and tell them it’s okay we still have each other. Let’s not turn into animals we are decent people.

You nee.d to deve.lop eyes on youyr back so you can ru.n as soon as you se.e re.venge co.ming.

  17. @Mulezi
    Am non Partisan and sometimes I call out PF and sometimes UPND….I criticize both…I’ve been calling ECL as Bandit President Edward Chagwa Lungu and sometimes I criticize HH or Nevers Mumba etc…so i am watching HH very close and I will be pointing out things if something doesn’t seem right…..Just don’t be bias like the USA media…..we Voted for change(Biden) here in the USA and now the USA is moving in reverse gear…Taliban…inflation etc

  19. Really laughable…did I not ask Lazy Lungu why he wanted to stand for a third time here!!
    Anyway goodnite!!

  20. HH has been declared President elect by the ECZ. Congratulations and our hope and confidence is that you will bring a breath of fresh air – away from the uncivilised politics of the vanquished regime. More importantly as well, that you will endeavour and make meaningful inroads in uplifting the quality of life of many Zambians.

  21. Hehehehe.,…….

    Hehehehehe……..hehehehe………

    Hehehehehe………hehehehehehe

    My big head hurts from self vindication…..hehehehe…..

  22. I posted it many many times before on this platform. “NO THIRD TERM PLEASE” I am happy people listened even when we were disappointed with our learned colleagues at ConCourt. I wonder if they are really lawyers worthy their salt.
