Opinion: It’s Done, Edgar Lungu is Zambia’s 6th President

Edgar Chagwa Lungu is our next Republican President. Our endorsement as the RB Team should not be taken lightly and there is absolutely nothing HH can do to reverse the outcome to go his way. The Eastern Province’s acceptance of the EL candidature cancels out HH’s head start of an almost 90% support from Southern Province.

Luapula Province is a narrow strip of land that is densely populated. Distance to polling stations is shorter than those in Western and North Western Provinces. This means that for every 1 person in either Western or North Western Provinces who struggles to go and vote due to distance rains and floods at this time of the year, 10 voters in Luapula have access to their polling stations with ease – end result – Luapula cancels out North Western and Western Provinces’ HH’s advantage.

Then Edgar sprints forward with Northern/Muchinga provinces almost unopposed. Remember that Northern Muchinga is shared between MMD in the Northern Mambwe/Namwanga areas while PF had the central and southern Bemba/Bisa areas. These have now been combined and bagged for EL. During my campaigns, I also noticed that while HH is popular in Mumbwa and the Southern parts of Kabwe – from Kabwe Central to Serenje, however, it is MMD/PF who are popular. So Edgar bags 75% of Central Province.

All the HH endorsements count for nothing compared to the EL endorsements. The RB Team wipes out all the HH endorsements. Namugala and Sinfukwe, individually for instance, have more influence than Mutati and Mucheleka put together. While HH is receiving quantity endorsements, EL is receiving few but quality endorsements. E.g in Eastern province, HH received endorsements from Victoria Kalima, Levy Ngoma and the Mkaika MP Hon. Phiri. Edgar received endorsements from RB, HRH Mpezeni, other chiefs, the rest of the MPs, the MMD Provincial, Districts and constituency committees and a voter population that matches Southern province. To achieve a white wash, RB just needs to appear with EL at rallies in Lusaka and on the Copperbelt – that will completely seal it.

It is also important to note that Zambians are very conservative people who take time to change. Edgar’s support base is mostly amongst the 24 years to 34 years old and surprisingly amongst the above 65 year old. These are assured voters. The 24 to 34 years old are the 1 million voters who ushered in the PF and as Fred Mmembe said, “Edgar is likely to win because the Sata voters have not demobilized”.

HH’s big support base lies amongst those aged between 18 and 24 years old. These were below 18 years old when voter registration was last conducted. So HH may show some impressive crowds in Western and North Western provinces, Lusaka and the Copperbelt, but they constitute potential voters and not real voters for they are not registered but are eager to vote and are active on social media. End result, they vote on Muvi TV and here HH wins but then it’s just to make oneself happy for a moment.

I have participated in elections either as a voter or as a candidate since 1991. One thing comes to mind – that each time Zambians want a “government change”, the word “change” reverberates through out the townships and communities. No matter how much you try to reason with a voter, the response would be we want “change!” Not a single person person has uttered the word “change”!

  1. Those are just delusions of grandeur. You cannot march the HH team. Have you forgotten the recent heavy loss in solwezi central?

  4. Continue yapping! Pf has been heavily demolished by HH & team. There is nothing to be proud about pf. The cost of living has reached alarming levels and it is time to vote in professionals that can fix the souring economy. Team HH IS THE ANSWER.

  5. mr mulusa sir, all along I thought you were a very intelligent person, but alas I was wrong, first and formost upnd wired you in solwezi, I need your comment, you are saying Mr Muchelekahas no support but you are wrong because he wired PF at the time Sata was at the herm of Pf. Victoria Kalima amassed a lot of votes dung the by- election. Rb has no positive influence on the voters , for your own information, people here in Lusaka are now saying BA lUNGU HAS LOST IT, they now believe that Your Rb actually has stolen and the removal of immunity is very justifiable because of the money he is getting from Nigeria. mr Mulusa sir I hope you will ready this, I than you

    • Mulusa lost it big time when Sata nullified his seat, he started yarping like a poodle as no one wanted to adopt him. Prior to elections he even hinted that he was ready to work with Sata the persecuter, (just like Dora Matakao) Sata must have laughed the loudest! This moron has no shame and reading his lines one cannot help but see similarities with Emmanuel Mwamba. This is one useless blogger who has been posting Lungu this Lungu that with Ka Mwamba, Mulusa you are a downright disgrace. This time around uzalila your name should have been Unlucky!

  7. UPND lacks reasoning,in almost all comments that they make it’s insults only. in short they don’t have analytic tools to debate issues and so they revert to insults and name calling. shame on you.even your so called president told you not to insult people on social media.

    • Sorry Ba magaba chakubabani. I apologise on behalf of whoever you say is insulting. They were just REACTING to the choice of words used by the loser, Mulusa who is now looking for a job from EL. BUT you can not match the quality of debates by most of these supporters.

  9. I have always admired Lucky until today. I respect your opinion but, reading your comment supporting RB males me sick. You are bitter because you lost the last election . But you need to have some principals. Now among the Kaondes i was counting after Humhery Mulemba you were one of them. Now forget. Get a job and stopping embarrassing yourself. RB have just missed the PF campaign. Lungu was much better alone.

  11. It was in March 2014 before SATA died that PF was wallopped by UPND in all the polling stations of Katuba constituency that includes 10 of them in chunga compound and Kabangwe compounds all lying within the city of Lusaka. What does it tell you about how the entire city looks like now? Flight HH2015 is landing in statehouse whether you like it or not.

    Poor analysis. Deep down you know that you losing this election.

  13. Lucky, please chill out and leave our man alone. We know you overrate yourself and it’s no wonder you are not pm for Solwezi anymore. Next time tell us about some house in the neighborhood of Menlo park/waterkloof. Some bird was singing about some auction that took place recently….need I say more?

  16. Lucky Mulusa, Yaya mwalusa kabiji. You are suffering from poor judgement sir. All your gains have amounted for what they are nothing for you. Open your eyes and watch the demo brother. Stop living a life of writing English then inflate your ego to think you are something because people praise your lingual Franca. Frankly speaking you have fallen short of the required standard. You are a bull dog with no teeth, barking loudly but unfortunately your bite is as harmless as your bark. Do you think people will take you seriously for siding with people like Dorah? You Lucky, RB and Dorah are all failures. RB is what is called in the bible as a stiff necked fool who is uncircumcised. Why do you always resist Gods plans? You Mulusa are just another stiff necked fool.

  17. Mulusa’s intelligence is likened to that of Muhabi and Akashambatwa. Somehow these guys do miscalculate. Do a research. To this list add Dora. These guys miscalculate alot.

  19. THE PROBLEM THAT THE LIKES OF MULUSA HAVE IS JEALOUSY. THE LIKES OF MULUSA ARE JEALOUSY OF HH’S SUCCESS WHERE THEY HAVE FAILED.WHEREAS HH HAS SUCCEEDED IN HIS HIS PROFESSION, BUSINESS AND POLITICS, THEY HAVE LAMENTABLY FAILED. MULUSA’S SUPPORT FOR BANDA AND LUNGU IS NOT GENUINE. HE IS AFTER BANDA’S MONEY. AT ONE TIME MUCHIMA CALLED HIM TO FIND OUT WHY HE (MULUSA) WAS SUPPORTING BANDA, MULUSA CONFESSED THAT THAT HE WAS AFTER BANDA’S MONEY.

  21. Here is a man who is drifting from being a good quality MP material to loss of vision. Since when did RB become quality? Are you one of those that have kept misleading the old man? Please for Heaven’s sake let RB retire from public office and go do memoirs in the backyard at his farm. Why must he compete for jobs with his grand children? Or you <
    Mulusa are incapable of vying for the high office. Looks like after all we over rated you all this time

  22. A very simplistic analysis by Mulusa. This guy overrates himself. He has just put up a shallow analysis with no empirical data to back it up. He is a Muloser and lacks judgement. Poor guy.

  24. I said it. Everyone who joins the PF loses rational analysis immediately, hence their resorting to violence most times: Lucky Muloser, RB, Guy Scott, Kopulande, Chief Nalubamba, Derrick Chitala, Mike Mulongoti when Sata was still alive, etc when they were respected intellectuals a few moments. The opposite is true that whoever joins the UPND, starts to think properly.

  26. THOSE SUPPORTING H.H.D O NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SUPPORTING. IF YOU LOOK AT THE OPINION FOR LUCKY, IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE AND IT IS A JUSTIFIABLE OPINION. H.H HAS NO CLEAR PROVINCES EXCEPT SOUTHERN AND NORTH WESTERN.Western province is now trick for H.H AND THEREFORE, THIS PROVINCE CANNOT BE CLAIMED BY UPND ALONE,REMEMBER THAT PF HAS MONGU Central and nalolo constituencies but UPND HAS NOTHING IN LUAPULA, MUCHINGA,NORTHERN EASTERN AND LUSAKA. SO WHERE IS THE CLAIM THAT H.H IS WINNING? LET THESE CARRY OUT ANOVA AND GIVE US THE OUTCOME. THE SATANIST THEY SUPPORT WILL GO NOWHERE. HOW WILL BE THE CABINET IF H.H WINS THE ELECTION IN THIS MONTH?..UPND SHOULD LEARN TO ACCEPT REALITIES. GO GO GO PF EL.AS HH CRIES.
