The opposition UPND has encouraged its members that the fight to reclaim its alleged stolen votes in the just ended general elections is not over yet.

UPND vice president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba says his party has sufficient evidence to petition the outcome of the elections.

Mr. Mwamba says the evidence is enough to secure a judgment most Zambians are waiting for as it is actually being supplied by the people who allegedly helped the ruling PF to steal its votes.

He has disclosed at media briefing held last evening that part of this evidence will include the incarceration of some of its members on alleged tramped up non-bailableย  charges.

Mr. Mwamba says party members should remain prayerful and calm as the Constitutional Court hears the petition.

He thinks that it is not necessary for anyone to panic as he believes God is on side of the UPND.

Speaking at the same briefing MMD president Nevers Mumba has wondered why there was so much security at Mulungushi International Conference Center were elections results were being announced.

Dr. Mumba has recalled that it has never happened in Zambiaโ€™s history that the returning officer of a presidential election can be protected by armed police officers at the time of announcing the results.

He suspects that what happened on Monday this week when President Lungu was being declared winner of the election is a sign of how scared the ruling PF is of what it has allegedly done.

And Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) president Charles Milupi warned the ruling PF and President Lungu that the path upon which they are is one of ruin.

Mr. Milupi says this is not only ruling PF and President Lungu himself that are headed for ruin but it is also the rest of the nation.

He says it is very important that the will of the people seem to prevail and which is the more reason the petition will be filed in the Constitutional Court on Thursday today.

  1. Insesitivity has gone out of Ba HH,when a large percentage of people hate you why impose yourself ?
    No Zambian in right mind love liberalism

  2. I wish I had love enough to give ba HH just to make him forget about these petitions. where’s. ba Mutinta kanshi?

  3. Such stories are always there after elections… Petitiones cant work out.believe me you

  4. Do you know that leadership only comes from god? Lungu has been chosen by god, plz u can’t force matters.

  5. LESSONS FROM THIS ELECTION I found this very interesting, so am sharing… 1. Never to bank on crowds at political rallies. 2. You cannot win an election at the back of tribalism 3. Zambians have waken up, you cannot impose an unpopular candidate no matter how powerful you are, the electorates will defy you. The number of independent candidates who have scooped the seats in this year is unprecedented. 4. Do not be deceived by political pronouncements and claims, I was very sure prof. Nkandu Luo was losing but she won convincingly. 5. Do not think you have the monopoly of intelligence, even people with basic education can comprehend and interpret economic matters better. The case of Lusaka and CB with so much job losses yet the results indicate something else… 6. Making generalisations should be backed with facts. For instance it’s not enough to say Zambians are suffering…otherwise Lusaka and CB could have gone to the opposition. 7. Do not underestimate the power of collective responsibility. Some people took this election as a protest to imperialism /capitalism, pomposity, polarisation and tribalism. 8. Do not insult the crocodile while your ass is still in water. 9. Do not despise prayers and mock those who pray, it doesnt matter the individual who calls for prayers. God is for us all. The relationship is between you and your God. 10. Intimidation, haughtiness, violence and sarcasm does not win one many friends. 11. Your cup of tea might be my poison, so don’t think everything begins and ends with you. In a democracy people have choices, their reasons for having different choices should not attract your attacks

  6. I hate all UPND suppoters including u and ur boss HH fuck u dogs jst accpt de defeat baimbwa imwe fuseki

  7. He will accept as days go by. We know its to early to accept. Even soccer fan refuse to accept when Zambia is beaten by small Malawi or Zimbabwe

  18. Claiming victory when you’ve lost!!! kikikikikiki kikikiki.yayayayaya. fififififififi, mamamamamama

  19. You can’t have two fathers. So you can’t thank other people’s father. Wait for your father’s time. Don’t make other people to be fools. Dununa basi.

  20. Since u want to serve the Zambian citizens and they have said no they don’t want yo services kubaleka. U don’t have to force yoself ati mpakafye nteke awe!!!

  21. Jxt acpt u hv lost ,theres no differenc btwn poor pipo an de rich mo ovr we all hv de same blood hh s nt a campable leader wooooooo

  22. Printing ballot papers in dubai also infuriated you. What type of a person are you? Everything is bad to you. Kuleni bamudala. Naka smile panono+patience can do even if things do not favor you.

  23. I now wish death thn being ruled by chakolwa but only drinkers will happy but thy forgetting after beer thy nshama

  25. Shame you people…… we are mentioning God in our Talks but the language we are using awe sure….. Remember the world goes round ka…. Which heaven are we heading to?

  26. ok baliiba pamo Nama polling agent benu ba upnd since u r insisting dat there hv stolen the votes nd ilyo baleiba abntu bobe balikwi?

  27. Its true… grown up people, who are enough in their minds can’t celebrate such things. Especially one who followed the procedure of our elections from the word ‘go’.

  28. May the lord God be with the President HH.my prayer is that let us find the winning formula that will help us to win our next elections we still have time because we are now in all provinces

  29. Before u start the race especially elections only two things involve it’s loose n win, one funny thing is before pple cast their votes we head from opposition side they were saying this tym tabaibe we have international observes frm different countries n local observers as well but wat happen again so are u telling me that they were doing nothing wen they came? Please let’s maintain peace

  30. We cant not go to farm hh has lot of mone so if u think tht u are lost kwepe ngamwaliya. Ruth

  31. You have always been losing but this time you have been rejected by the same. Politics yaba nabene

  32. Hope you don’t loose again because even accepting defeat is winning in itself! It’s called wisdom. Let people that truely love this party save it’s blushes please!! Most of our leaders seem to have wrong advisers.You have alarmed the international community already but they have come & gone speaking well of the elections.What more do you want to prove or achieve that we haven’t heard? I for one would advise the ECZ to sue you for discrediting them the way you have done through out. All the best,i rest my case!

  33. No one rigged the election we must be realistic guys how do u expect hh to wine when his counselors and mps did not wine. Pipo are not ready for change though the pf did not fulfil some of the promises.

  34. Stop wasting our time.In 2006 u were among other presidents who pertitioned what came out of that pertition? Move -dont waste our time we need these ministers and their head in their offices .This country needs people to go to work.Its not always about you politicians and your desperation to look for a job.U started crying like a baby even before compaighns and election dates were set.Now your complaints are cries are going forward???? Can’t u dump this crap for once?Nanaka nemwe Yama.

  35. That’s what’s up,we know our rights,go ahead nd petition man.am solidly behind u HH.

  36. The truth mst be told to z Zambian pipo these election mst be repeated so much has happened. The court mst collect z mistakes made.

  37. DU DU DU DU another 20yrs in office, y did HH pulled out from SATA’S pack as vice? the answer is simple, he missed his best luck ever.

  38. we are all zambians lets just sit relax as we imagine who the next upnd president will be. coz hh has failed

  39. watermelon strategy has made us to loose it’s like we were advertising for the winning party,so next time let’s use fruitful strategy


  41. they still have money to waste meanwhile they have huge credits to pay back to Anglo America.

  42. Mr president HH don’t worry about these people who talk negative about you. You’ve achieved so much more than these who say you a failure in real sense they are the ones who are failures because they have never achieved what you have achieved. viva upnd viva HH

  43. uwawa tabula kabepesho !!! kikiki, Zambains spoke thru the ballot paper kikiki. ECL go, go you have 1,800 chakuti witnesses . h! a wapya muzi.

  44. what is more interesting is PF is ruling, hey guy from UPND you can call us fools thieves but we are on the driving seat so relax and enjoy the ride till 2021 and hope to see you there

  45. 3rd president of zambia gave hh& upnd opportunity5th president did so as well.wise words from 3rd UPND ARE BUTTOCKS THEY’LL ALWAYS. REMAIN BEHIND-GREATY LEVY RIP.

  46. can u pliz tell us how they rig election we want 2 know coz I personaly don’t think u can rig election coz all the poling agents representing a particuler party were there in all poling stations 2 verify the results so how was it done tell us ?

    • Ubukopo fulu fulu..ai. .why did they send incompetent people to go and represent them..today ati they have riggged!..negligence yabo.


  48. I rmemba every1 sayin it has 2b 50+1 nd yet no 1 managed 2 get such a percentage,anyway we’ll see wat the court has 2 say

  49. Is it only me or others can see that its only a certain group of pipo complaining….Zambian voted not ECZ….some pipo are talking as if it was a must for HH to win

  50. he has never accepted any loss.they were against the amended constitution and they are appealing to the constitutional court of appeal created by the same constitution which they rejected.lack of principles and double standards.

  51. It not news to ua that you hv rejected bcoz you said that along time ago,so they issue of putting blame on the ECZ is unjustifileble,since you said that so you tried by all mean to find a fault even where nt.Upnd thought by asking the clould whom they will vote for they thought those people hv even voted not forgeting that different people wea attending rallies trying to hear whose manifesto is genuin.Upnd hv failed to accept the elction bcoz they had already crowned themselves winner even before the game has started.With the same pattern of voting,even if we aer to go for a re-run the outcme wil sti the same.

    • Peaty. It’s can be the same because we will also dumdumwezi them. If go for re- run believe we win with very very margin.

    • How you are forgeting that percenge of people who voted in upnds stronghold was almost 90% meaning few people did nt vote,but with the pfs stronghold the percentage of people who voted was about 50% meaning alot of people did nt vote.So if we are to go for a re-run it means thoz people inpfs stronghold willturn up to cast there vote nd wat wil happen is the number wil increase by a big margin while in upnds it wil jst increase alittle bcoz few people remained.

  52. I told you all this is because you have no regard for our Lord Jesus Christ who had put Lungu President of Zambia and instead you kept on insulting him day in and day out not knowing you were doing to God (Romans 13:1-2). All you are doing is dragging God’s will to God which is impossible. Because when God has said yes you can not change it to No! Next time please recognise the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ in all you do and say…. (James 4:8).

    • Amen…even if they petion..they are heading for more shame. .it’s like they are still fighting God…but they will know.

  53. Then ECZ should not count this things…find a solution people.wen ever there is elections its ECZ.2011 mmd said ECZ too?for failing….mmmmmm

  54. Why do you lose if you are a good candidate? Ask yourself first mr hh, Tonga’s with the selfishness! I don’t think u will ever rule……

    • Have you have experienced the selfishness they have or you just hear from people? Because a lot of people have asked they always say;
      1.My grandpa said these people are bad because he lived with them or my uncle also said it.
      2.My father or mum also said the same or your friend could tell you someone also who mentioned about it to him or her.Its very difficult to see what these people say,because we have them around us every where,in churches ,school, neighbours and you can’t tell or see the selfishness in them.They are humans just like any one else,now because of politics they are portrayed twice of their selfishness. One people.

    • Me it’s experience. …not hear says or that one said …I have lived with many tongas and lozi people. …my brother was married to one lozi woman ….so Mr lngnatius chola yes they are selfish people. ..

  55. Dats da problm wen zambians are ful of illitrates wait u will suffer dats wen u kw viva hh

  56. anyway chilakalipa ukulusa 5 times,iye uluse you cant beat your master the end of upnd.who will be the next.president for upnd?

  57. Careful with what you wish for. Might just find something interesting in the southern vote where people who are not upnd where chased from polling stations. What where they trying to do

  58. U re not even ashamed of yo self ba Upnd Uthik hh is yo God, let Lungu work 4pipo not & u ba UPND let yo president find u a job ku FARm yakwe mukuchema igombe kkkkkkkkkk

  59. I walked in the streets yesterday and I noticed that 99’/. of those celebrating were criminal faced and children without proper parent guidance. ….shame….this is clear theft…all evidence is there for all to see.

    • brother man thsts the thing kaili your observation was correct few intelligent people celebrated only people who tarry upon junta

    • Wetha dt or nt d fact is na dununa en his got nthn t worry yo speakn wil nt chang enthn majority wins

    • This pipo u are calling chakolwas are the pipo who were voting,please respect them they feel confortable with the choice they made,mwebasambilila why are u not celebrating shame who’s hh no vision.

    • And besides which country has no street vendors or street kids …or ba chakolwa or ba grade 4 drop outs …it’s not voting for fun …we call it seeing a vision. …

    • Iwe shut up! We have chosen the leader of our choice so stop wasting time. There can never be two Presidents in one country, never! If u can’t accept that Edgar is President elect, the deal with!

    • These idiots ba upnd dey never stp amazin me. Anywy guyz, its a free world n if tokin useless tins wil ease yo hearts, hey who r we to stp u. Kambani mwandini mitima zinkale pansi. Kikikikiki ungafe na kobil iye tb ala BP yaba

  60. Zambians have voted ECZ has nothing to do with that zambia has a lot of street people with voters cards kaponyas marketers street is what makes zambia repect it and love it coz it is your zambia not only for the rich but poor people too so all you rich people saying you have been treated unfairly soory porvarty beats the rich only in haven

  61. Joseph Mvula tell them ati na GBV ni excellence……hehehe you have made my day. Concede defeat there is life after losing an election. Reflect on your mistakes and try in 2021 okey.

  62. Only a fool can celebrate to this rigged victory, ,,, if you have noticed, ,, only street adults & a banch of thieves in public office are celebrating, , real patriotism calls for one to be in shock just how ECZ could stoop so low, ,,,, but Zambians Zoona, ,,, mediocrity is in the blood. ,!

    For me,friends & my family, ,, we will stand for excellence, ,, it’s HH all the way, ,!..Zambia Forward. : Janza Kumbele

    • your names sums it all….from Dundumwezi….! Cry till you cry no more. You think HH is God.

    • Tribalist. Always speaking and doing things in tribal line. You call us fools but you must be big one.being Tonga or Tonga related one or whatever does not qualify a Tonga to win an election. But all Zambians decide in an election by individual choices and tongaland is just a part of Zambia .and Zambia is not a company where a Tonga boss can handpick a fellow Tonga cow to a position using tribal line.good morning.

    • Dreamers i told you Where is your dream.it is not you From southern to make a change Lusaka and CB are the ones who does that.Since you are the worst TRIBALISTIC Party in the world you will go into Oblivion without being in power.

    • from my land people voted for hh regardless of his tribe but you the tongas you just believe that only a Tonga has to govern.you are too backwards being a president is not that you have to be rich,Tonga no but be smart which hh is not because if he was he would have been president a long time ago.

    • Frustrated cadre I see yah…….alalila owe! uyo chikonko mwikate uyo alAlalalaalalalAlallal nashipula uyo…..

    • we ar nt fools bt I thk a fool here is u nd de big bach of fools is HH nd GBM who ar failing 2 accept defeat if u ar nt idiot u could encourage yo fellow supporters 2 move forward nd wait for yo time bcoz God tym is de best

    • The PF are forgeting that its because of those insults,vicious words ,the regarding of other people as animals etc lead to that voting pattern in southern province.They are human like you, they feel pain when you insult them even if a lot in streets take it as funny,jokes about Tonga’s saying all injurious words to them.If it were to be Bemba’s insulted this country would have gone into civil already ,because they always think they are more superior than any other tribe in Zambia and they are cousins in the east ,its not that HH cannot rule Zambia but because of the hate of allowing other tribes to rule,Mwanawasa ruled because of Chiluba’s adoption but they knew already that he was ” Lenje” you could hear by the names he was called while pf was in opposition.And that really shows how people from northern region can react to other tribes they are not comfortable with,Mr Sata just ended on bring UPND down on the notion ” Tonga’s are selfish” but this time it even went further to tribal songs,tribal jokes on rallies etc comparing your fellow human to an animal? What kind of Christians are we? Christianity of just entertainment , especially Kambwili and Bwalya these are tribalists they have managed to put their tribalist/ vicious words even into small children.You wonder if Zambia is a true christian nation because they even better countries interms of Christianity than us.U know what you have said about southern people and as a christian who values God’s words can you testify or tell Jesus and God to say “you were wrong to give us a tribe that was self in Zambia? “

    • nomatter how goodness we become as Lunda,luvale,kaude,Tonga this people will never appreciate in us. otherwise time to believe in our selves

    • Alalila owe chikonko mwikate.When u loose it hates mwandi i feel for you.U can insult do wat.Nothing wil change if results were rigged wat were the UPND Agents doing???Meaning they rigged together 5 years is near just continue campaigning maybe u may win lol

    • Its not right to call Tongas as tribal neither is it jusifiable for Tongas to reffer to Bembas as tribal and thieves.But this whole thing must end-nomba naimwe bane uko Ku Sp iyo imivotele yenu yamusango shani? Is it subjective or objective?This problem has a root cause.One of these tribes started the nosence-bembas are all over the countr and in some parts they are called banyukunyuku and other crazy names meaning thieves-Tongas on the other hand are all over the country and they don’t feel any outlandish atall,they are not called by any names-but ………Mind sets between these tribes shud change .Nomba bane imivotelefye yena ilanga fye ubwafya mwabanabo.

    • mweemba how do u call more a million Zambians as fools? U see u idiots u think u are superior that’s why u have all the isues with Bembas-u call them fools and u expect them to vote for u en masses? Infact these are good people bembas coz they are out going and can go any were without a problem not u.God has spoken Yama -pertition if u can but this country will not be led by speaker for more than a week.

    • Sorry ba tongalised upnd you hv losed! i miss the upnd of mr mazoka’s era it was a national party

    • God’s will not your will accept the defeat that upnd lost lesa talekelesha abakwe petition or not God gave us lungu ok chikonko mwikate uyo afikwite

    • Colleagues in my humble view I think we have fundamental relation problems which if not handled with care by our generation have potential to create ISIS mentalities. We must come to terms with the fact that something needs to firmly addressed in our tribal relationships. Questions like why do southerners feel rejected should be firmly and fairly. You would have expected institutions like the Universities and other research groups to research on behaviour patterns and their effect on development.

    • u are the few individuals who paint tongas to be tribal or bad people due 2 yo insult, pliz guard yo tongue and yo brain.

    • U are a fool,let me advise u this way.7 provinces hv democratic minds n voted so,while u in yo 3 provinces voted according to tribal belief. So u want the majority bend to u?

    • Him wanted As 2 vote 4 hh n de all tribes bt dem all tongaz 2 vote 4 hh only nsanya za bantu imwe

    • If lungu is so caring ascya all think why does nt he offer satas widow a job instead of appointing his dots chakuti chakuti….wake up Zambia!!!!!!!

    • Mr Mweemba,is Mr HH going to stand again in 2021 or it’s GBM who is going to stand.Or maybe you are going to hold a convention to elect who’s going to stand.

    • Ummm Hh wl neva rule da countr a u jehovah iwe evn f u say tongas a fools we dnt wory bt jst no dat u brought povert maimbwa imwe mwalitumpa al of sayn tongas a fool jst no dat ndiwe galu a dog…do u thnk we a nt human being?u hv no mind u a lunatic insain mad u idiots…
