Sean Tembo to Petition the Kabwata By-Election

Share

The Opposition Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP) hassaid that it will petition the outcome of the Kabwata parliamentary by-election in the courts of law.

Party leader Sean Tembo said that the party has refused to accept the results in the Kabwata Parliamentary by-election as a true reflection of the free will of the people of Kabwata Constituency.

In a statement, Mr. Tembo said that because of the violence which was allegedly perpetrated against his party members and supporters by the ruling United Party for National Development from the very onset of the election cycle.

Mr Tembo said that on 28th December, 2021, during the first nomination process at St. Patrick’s Primary School in Kabwata, members of the PeP Women’s National Choir were attacked by UPND members allegedly led by William Banda, in full view of Police officers, with four of the attacked members sustaining serious injuries and had to be admitted to Levy Mwanawasa Hospital for more than a week.

Mr. Tembo added that the PeP bus was vandalized, music equipment including amplifiers and speakers stolen as well as two drums and that the matter was reported to Kabwata Police Station despite the assailants being identified by the victims, the police did not effect any arrests and the docket remains open up to this day.

Mr. Tembo is of the view that the blatant acts of violence by the ruling UPND against PEP party instilled fear in the people of Kabwata and prevented them from freely associating and supporting his party, for fear of being targets of the UPND violence.

Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP) Candidate Henry Muleya got a paltry 30 votes.

  1. It’s your right sir..we in pf are seeking counsel as overwhelming evidence has been found showing elections were not free and fair. We will soon inform on next steps. Disgusting for someone to believe they have won when they haven’t. This is why karma follows some mps into death. You can’t cheat people and expect to live long. He is cursed

  2. @Kaisa surely how do you wish death on a fellow human just because they won an election. The man has a family that loves them, the same way your family loves you. Such a devil.

  5. Sean, it’s almost impossibble to beat the ruling party in by-elections. Many factors work in their favor such delivery of development when you vote for the opposition will be in danger etc. PF was winning all by elections even in Upnd strongholds. I remember how Davis Mwila used to cheat himself how the party had become popular. Save the money you want to use for the petition for some bread for your family.

  6. This guy is a joker. How can you win a seat as an mp when you have no councillor in the same area. What is the building block of politics? Does it not start with building branches and branch chairmen and then winning a council seat? People who are educated once enter politics often lose common sense and focus is only state house. Sad indeed.

  8. SEAN TEMBO YOU ARE NOT A FACTOR IN THE ZAMBIAN POLITCAL ARENA . PEOPLE DONT CHERISH YOU. JUST LOOK THE ZEROS YOU PARTY GOT IN MOST POLLING STATIONS OF KBWATA. YOUR COLLABORATION WITH THE IDENTIFIED THIEVE HAS ERODED EVEN THE LITTLE FAITH PEPLE HAD IN YOU. THIS IS ALSO TRUE WITH KALABA. AS LONG AS HE CONTINUES GIVING SOLIDALITY TO THIEVES THAT WERE TOO STINKY FOR HIM TO CONTI……..HE CONTINUE GETTING ZEROES .

  9. @deja vu you are now talking like an experienced zambian political analyst.. wise advise to your cousin ‘sean’ but the problem is that he never listens ,,, sure petition na ma vote yali 30 and what will be more embarrassing is when his petition is thrown out as lacking merit and wasting the courts precious time…

  10. With his past musings and empty blubbering i cannot take Sean Tembo seriously. So glad that he lost and he’s feeling the pain of his sins.

  11. Sean Tembo will listen when we chew his wife. No woman wants to be associated with a habitual loser. It is a matter of time. The boy does not know when to quit. We will help him see the light.

    They should be proud of this achievement and for maintaining the consistency since the 2021 elections

  13. this time time sean tembo and kalaba’s party were even beate by tayali’s party and unip. just imagine! poor timing of kalaba and sean tembo. how could they join the master thieves so quickly? thing went so bad and therefore zambia now needs leaders who can bring about a halt to bad and corrupt practices by teaching a lesson all crooks regardless of their origin, affiliation. at the moment BALLY IS APPARENTLY OUR HOPE. LETS GIVE CHANCE

  14. See you should be worried as a country that from the ruling party to the opposition no one is giving you hope.look at margin between UPND and PF things are not ok.There is no hope but big worry as a country.You have a president who is still thinking is in opposition.Advise him to get on with work and forget about PF

  15. Sean T, you are not a politician, go and do something else. Am of the view that anyone to contest for presidency should have a certain number of mps in the previous elections. All these so called presidents of political parties were the ones who were supposed to contest in kabwata except pf and UPND. Why should we continue to waste money on things that are clear, do away with that outdated law of presenting supporters. Imagine ba Winter after rebranding they can’t even contest for kabwata.

  16. Zambian men are amusing koma. We are used to pledges of giving up body parts so this nonsense of election numbers is ridiculously familiar. That petition is a face saver. Azapitiliza na u zero uyo.

  17. Advice from some former fimo-fimo to a disgraced leader to Sean Tembo. How much was Sean paid for the bloody assault in Cairo road by PF cadres?

  18. Obviously, any acts of violence must be condemned & dealt with by police! However, on voting day, your choice is private – no one can intimidate you to vote for a party you don’t like. The people picked the party they preferred! If I were PeP, I would let this one be. The loss margin is too great to be attributed to voter intimidation that took place few weeks earlier; & any repeal will not make much of a difference to justify the bother.

    #plant a tree please!

  19. Wait very soon he will petition even the blocks of his house when they fall due to storm ana from Mozambique.

  20. Now I understand that there is a very big difference between A in a classroom and Reality in practice. Tembo is an embodiment of that difference.

  21. Sean Tembo is a waste of political space, he leads a’ brief case nashala neka tuka wina lilali’ party. This is what happens to morons who are not principled and ready to sacrifice. He was fooled by the criminal and Gangster Pf to leave the UPND Alliance where he was much more useful.
