Opposition UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has charged that in the next elections, the PF and Edgar Lungu will not be allowed to manipulate the poll.

Hichilema or HH as he is fondly called alleges that Edgar Lungu robbed him of victory in 2015 and 2016 elections.

He has made demands that the electoral ballot papers be printed elsewhere outside Zambia but not in Dubai where the previous were printed from.

Hichilema has also charged that his party will not allow an electronic voting saying the PF can easily manipulate the results.

The UPND leader who have made five unsuccessful bid at the presidency has further demanded for an Independent Electoral Commission saying the current one is compromised by the PF.

HH says the UPND will be more vigilant in the next elections and will not tolerate any manipulation of the results. He has warned President Lungu against manipulating the poll.

The UPND was speaking on Wednesday when he received hundreds of PF Members who joined his party in Lusaka.

  1. When will this man become relevant,each time he opens his mouth nothing sensible worth of a credible opposition leader comes out of it. It’s hallucinations all the time. He has run out of ideas in my opinion

  3. ONLY A TONGA MIUST LEAD UPND says Sejani. HH can you please grow up politically. When the ballot papers were printed locally in 1991 all the stakeholders, including those from the opposition, were present to monitor the entire process and the work was done perfectly to the satisfaction of these stakeholders and no rigging was reported then. If this was done before why should we spend colossal sums of money on ballot papers being printed outside when we have the capacity to do so locally, it does not make any economic sense at all. If HH fears the results will be manipulated let him show the entire world how this will be done and any loopholes that will be identified will be fixed. Or else he just wants to make this a scapegoat when he loses again in 2021 (which is most likely)and bring chaos in the country like Odinga is doing in Kenya. If there was any rigging in 2015 and 2016 then this was done in southern province by UPND.Southern province was the only province with the abnormal voter turnout which was artificially created in 2015 and 2016 elections.

  4. Prior to 2016 elections, HH said that his party will make sure every ballot, including counting, movement and all the way to the tallying and announcing centre, would be closely monitored. After losing, he claims elections were stolen. At which point did his party close its eyes to let ‘thieves’ steal the elections?

    This is irritating. When are we going to grow up politically? Surely, one would be pleased that ballots are printed locally to save costs. In any case, does it matter where the ballots are printed? In the eyes of some of these politicians, elections will always be ‘stolen’ as long as they are not declared the winners!

  5. Electoral Commission of Zambia needs to be an independent body and not appointed by one man probably the different parties should submit names of individuals to be members and parliament ratifies.

  6. HH is a foolish self proclaimed Economist who cant even interpret the economical benefit/merit/advantage of printing ballots papers locally. Leave him is just a desperate billionaire into wrong a business of politics. Try which witchcraft there is too much bitterness from your heart.
