Former First Lady Maureen Mwanawasa and UPND Lusaka Mayoral losing candidate has surprised the nation by being the first to congratulate president elect Edgar Lungu on his reelection.

Soon after Lungu was declared winner Monday afternoon, Mrs Mwanawsa posted a congratulatory message on her Facebook page, being one of the first prominent personalities to do so.
“Judge Chulu has just announced the Presidential election results and has declared Edgar Chagwa Lungu as President – Elect. I would like to join the many Zambians in congratulating the President – Elect Lungu and the PF membership ‪. God Bless our Great Nation.”
However when Zambian Eye called her to clarify if she has indeed congratulated Lungu a day after she claimed Patriotic Front, Lungu’s party has stolen votes from UPND in Kanyama  and went on to claim that she corrected the anomalies which made UPND recover 14,000 votes, Mrs Mwanawasa responded, “what is wrong with that?”
The Zambian Eye told her that it wanted to confirm if indeed she is the one who issued a congratulatory message or her account had been hacked because just two days ago she had accused the PF of stealing Hakainde Hichilema’s votes.
She also asked what the reporter had seen on her Facebook page as she sometimes never have time to update her page but her handlers do it. But she later admitted that everything posted on her page is her work but in the same vain tried to distance herself to some page content despite having congratulated Lungu.
“I have no time to update my Facebook page when cadres are attacking my home now” she said. When quizzed which cadres were attacking her home, Mrs. Mwanawasa dropped the line.
When called after four hours, Mrs Mwanawasa said she did not want to talk to the press and dropped the line.
A check on her page later found that the post had been removed but the Zambian Eye had taken a screenshot.

  3. Sometimes we lose because we pay a blind eye to real issues,e.g How can you take,a young lady like sibongile mwamba to stand on upnd ticket in kasama,I think sibongile should have been tried to feature as a councillor 1st just like edgar did to tasila and she won.the fact that GBM is a running mate to HH never warranted that we feature anyone,I think people of kasama felt it bad that GBM was taking them for granted,the party upnd could ve chosen from its ranks a better person than the inexperienced daughter for GBM,who could have given the PF a good run.Upnd jst gave it for free.Also PF in mufumbwe,how can we honestly give the people steven Masumba,we took those people for granted.That’s why they have showed us the exit door,same applies to katuba,how could we give the people jonas shakafuswa,we are ourselves to blame.The writting was on the wall that the people didn’t want shakas.Let’s do it for the zambian people and not for political expediency.

  5. Disingenuous woman! Next she will be barging into state house demanding the president not appoint individuals she considers certain enemies of her husband to ministerial positions. She did this when Sata was president. She was accompanied by Nkomeysha.

  6. Yes, Maureen is not sleeping but preparing a petition against Lungus dubious accumulation of votes to deprive her and UPND their victory. It’s a shame! We meet in court and I hope chavula and Isaacs will be healed.

  9. What does this mean to UPND her political party which has rejected the election results and do not recognise Lungu as duly elected president?

    Is she one of these carpetbaggers who join organisations not because she buys into the organisational culture but purely for benefit?

    Maureen’s word of felicitation to Lungu goes against the UPND system of shared assumptions, values, and beliefs, which governs how UPND members behave in the party.

    The UPND unique culture, which provides guidelines and boundaries for the behavior of its members should be upheld by every member even Maureen if she is still a UPND member.

    But again, Maureen has the right of association therefore let her bed with Lungu. But even then, there is a better way of expressing your intention not when your colleagues are thinking of a constitution court marathon and that is when you show you political bagginess.

    I am disheartened by Maureen’s conduct as it goes against the UPND’s organisational culture.

  10. A python will always be one. Be friending it and keeping it under your bed until it grows will lead to catastrophic regrets.

    Not until it swallows your little baby will you know how dangerous your pet is.

    A cancer detected at its initial stages can be be well controlled and be cured.

    • You are the same people who are against separation but busy insulting other tribes. When is your tribal hatred going to end? Tongas have many sympathisers and will soon rise to wage war against u Mbewe and your tribesmen.

  17. Maureen Mwanawasa you were very quick to congratulating the man that made sure the elections were rigged. There is tons of evidence of rigging and you are congratulating the man responsible for cheating. What ever happened to morels, values and integrity?

    Elders are supposed to lead by example and be role models to the younger generation. The message you are sending is that it’s okay to steal or Cheat and get away with it. Madame it is not okay.

  21. We salute you Mrs Mwanawasa for your maturity and boldness.
    From now, stop dancing with losers and join the PF, that is where people like you belong. As long as UPND resembles anything like a tribal party as we saw the in the voting pattern,we can forget about HH ever ruling Zambia.
    Zambia loves Tongas but some selfish leaders are misleading innocent people into voting on tribal lines or regional lines. They should be told that their days are numbered, starting one today………Zambia will never be the same!
    We expect massive defections from UPND soon to join the ruling party. Davies Chama must resign his position for insulting remarks about Tongas, Mumbi Phiri too should be caged for practising cheap gutter theories that she does not understand.
    Thank you your Excellency for being onsistent to your belief in ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION
