Kasonkomona was postponed today after his lawyers argued that the case should be heard in the High Court.\u00a0 They also said that the charges brought against him — “soliciting for immoral purposes\u201d — were too vague.<\/p>\n<p>Kasonkomona was arrested April 7 immediately after a live television show during which he proposed the repeal of Zambia’s anti-homosexuality law.<\/p>\n<p>Kasonkomona, who is often described incorrectly as a gay-rights activist, has focused his work primarily on human rights in general and on AIDS prevention in particular.\u00a0 His proposal to repeal the country’s law about same-sex relations is aimed at eliminating the barriers to AIDS-related health services that LGBT people confront.\u00a0 He works with the Civil Society Health Forum and the Engender Rights Centre for Justice in Zambia.<\/p>\n<p>The <a href=\"http:\/\/oblogdeeoblogda.me\/2013\/05\/15\/zambian-activists-constitutional-challenge-to-homophobic-arrest-and-charges\/\">O-blog-dee blog<\/a> reported that “his lawyer Sunday Nkonde SC, from the firm SBN Legal Practitioners, informed the court that they had filed a Constitutional Application which ought to be heard prior to the trial. The prosecution was unable to agree to such until they had time to view the application.”<\/p>\n<p>The constitutional challenge claims that the law against “soliciting in a public place for immoral purposes” is “unconstitutionally vague and over-broad and contravenes article 20 of the Constitution which protects the right to freedom of expression.” It also claims that Kasonkomona is being denied a fair trial because the prosecution has not provided the defense with the evidence against him or the statements of witnesses it intends to call. O-blog-dee stated:<\/p>\n<blockquote><p>From what we can gather it seems that on 4 June 2013, the prosecution will actually argue its response to the defense\u2019s Constitutional Application. The magistrate will then make a decision on whether to refer the case to the High Court for a determination of the constitutional issues before the trial commences.<\/p><\/blockquote>\n<p>Kasonkomona was released on bail on April 11.\u00a0 He is suing the police for unlawful detention, based on the fact that he was held for more than 48 hours before he was charged, and is also seeking damages for mental distress and injury.<\/p>\n<p>His arrest came during a wave of homophobia that began with a news article claiming that <a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2013\/04\/03\/4-gay-couples-seek-to-wed-in-zambia\/\">four gay couples had tried to register themselves as married<\/a> on March 30.<\/p>\n<p>Police have asked Zambian citizens to <a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2013\/04\/10\/zambian-gays-face-unprecedented-harassment\/\">report suspected homosexuals.<\/a>\u00a0 Several human rights activists have gone into hiding to avoid arrest or worse.<\/p>\n<p>Activists say they have seen a rapid increase in human rights violations against LGBTI persons, including acts of violence, intimidation, arbitrary arrests, blackmail and extortion.<\/p>\n<div data-shortcode=\"caption\" id=\"attachment_4854\" style=\"width: 230px\" class=\"wp-caption alignleft\"><a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2013\/02\/guyscott-zambia-from-wikipedia.jpeg\"><img data-attachment-id=\"4854\" data-permalink=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2013\/05\/02\/zambia-vp-after-gay-rights-arrest-live-and-let-live\/guyscott-zambia-from-wikipedia\/#main\" data-orig-file=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2013\/02\/guyscott-zambia-from-wikipedia.jpeg?w=610\" data-orig-size=\"220,255\" data-comments-opened=\"1\" data-image-meta=\"{"aperture":"0","credit":"","camera":"","caption":"","created_timestamp":"0","copyright":"","focal_length":"0","iso":"0","shutter_speed":"0","title":""}\" data-image-title=\"GuyScott zambia from wikipedia\" data-image-description=\"<p>Guy Scott, former vice president of Zambia (Photo courtesy of Wikipedia)<\/p>\n\" data-medium-file=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2013\/02\/guyscott-zambia-from-wikipedia.jpeg?w=610?w=220\" data-large-file=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2013\/02\/guyscott-zambia-from-wikipedia.jpeg?w=610?w=220\" class=\"size-full wp-image-4854\" alt=\"Guy Scott, vice president of Zambia (Photo courtesy of Wikipedia)\" src=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2013\/02\/guyscott-zambia-from-wikipedia.jpeg?w=610\" \/><\/a><p class=\"wp-caption-text\">Guy Scott, vice president of Zambia (Photo courtesy of Wikipedia)<\/p><\/div>\n<p>Guy Scott, Zambia’s vice president, admitted in <a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2013\/05\/02\/zambia-vp-after-gay-rights-arrest-live-and-let-live\/\">an interview<\/a>: \u201cThe problem with this guy going on television was that we had to do something because if we had done absolutely nothing we would have got a bollocking from all these evangelical churches plus damn idiots. On the other hand, we didn\u2019t want to give him a particularly hard ride.\u201d<\/p>\n<p>On May 8, James Mwape and Philip Mubiana of rural Kapiri Mposhi were charged with violating Zambia’s law against homosexual activity, which provides for prison sentences of up to 14 years. They were reportedly forced to undergo anal examinations aimed at revealing their recent sexual activity.<\/p>\n<p>They are currently held at Mpima Remand Prison in the Central Province of Zambia, awaiting a trial that is scheduled to begin for May 22. While in prison, they face sexual harassment, get little to eat and have inadequate medical care.<\/p>\n<p><strong>Related articles<\/strong><\/p>\n<ul class=\"zemanta-article-ul\">\n<li

class=\"wp-caption-text\">Guy Scott, former vice president of Zambia (Photo courtesy of Wikipedia)<\/p><\/div>\n<p>After Kasonkomona\u2019s arrest, Zambia\u2019s then vice president, Guy Scott, admitted that the arrest was politically motivated. He said in <a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2013\/05\/02\/zambia-vp-after-gay-rights-arrest-live-and-let-live\/\">an interview<\/a>: \u201cThe problem with this guy going on television was that we had to do something because if we had done absolutely nothing we would have got a bollocking from all these evangelical churches plus damn idiots. On the other hand, we didn\u2019t want to give him a particularly hard ride.\u201d<\/p>\n<p>Kasonkomona\u2019s arrest came during a wave of homophobia that began with a news article claiming that <a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2013\/04\/03\/4-gay-couples-seek-to-wed-in-zambia\/\">four gay couples had tried to register themselves as married<\/a> in March 2013.<\/p>\n<p>Soon afterwards, police called on Zambian citizens to <a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2013\/04\/10\/zambian-gays-face-unprecedented-harassment\/\">report suspected homosexuals.<\/a>\u00a0 Several human rights activists went into hiding to avoid arrest. Some gay couples were arrested, but eventually were released.<\/p>\n<p>Kasonkomona, who is often described incorrectly as a gay-rights activist, has focused his work primarily on human rights in general and on AIDS prevention in particular.\u00a0 He currently works as national coordinator for Engender Rights-Zambia.<\/p>\n<p>In its news release, SALC said:<\/p>\n<p><a href=\"http:\/\/www.southernafricalitigationcentre.org\/2015\/05\/15\/news-release-zambia-high-court-confirms-acquittal-of-hiv-activist-paul-kasonkomona\/#\"> ZAMBIA HIGH COURT CONFIRMS ACQUITTAL OF HIV ACTIVIST, PAUL KASONKOMONA <\/a><\/p>\n<p><strong>Lusaka, 15 May 2015<\/strong> \u2013 Today, Justice Judy Mulongoti confirmed the 2014 ruling of His Worship Lameck\u00a0Ng\u2019ambi in which he acquitted human rights activist, Paul Kasonkomona.<\/p>\n<p>In April 2013, Kasonkomona was\u00a0arrested\u00a0after he appeared on a MuviTV programme where he spoke about the need to recognise the rights of vulnerable groups such as LGBT persons and sex workers in order to comprehensively address the HIV pandemic. Kasonkomona was charged under section 178(g) of the Penal Code with the idle and disorderly offence of soliciting in a public place for immoral purposes. This offence dates back to the English Vagrancy Act of 1898 and had never before been used to curb the right to freedom of expression.<\/p>\n<div data-shortcode=\"caption\" id=\"attachment_13670\" style=\"width: 245px\" class=\"wp-caption alignright\"><a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/07\/anneke-meerkotter-salc.jpg\"><img data-attachment-id=\"13670\" data-permalink=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2014\/07\/06\/despite-acquittal-trial-revealed-deep-zambian-injustices\/anneke-meerkotter-salc\/#main\" data-orig-file=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/07\/anneke-meerkotter-salc.jpg?w=235&h=356\" data-orig-size=\"300,454\" data-comments-opened=\"1\" data-image-meta=\"{"aperture":"0","credit":"","camera":"","caption":"","created_timestamp":"0","copyright":"","focal_length":"0","iso":"0","shutter_speed":"0","title":""}\" data-image-title=\"Anneke-Meerkotter-SALC\" data-image-description=\"<p>Anneke Meerkotter<\/p>\n\" data-medium-file=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/07\/anneke-meerkotter-salc.jpg?w=235&h=356?w=300\" data-large-file=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/07\/anneke-meerkotter-salc.jpg?w=235&h=356?w=300\" class=\" wp-image-13670\" src=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/07\/anneke-meerkotter-salc.jpg?w=235&h=356\" alt=\"Anneke Meerkotter\" width=\"235\" height=\"356\" srcset=\"https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/07\/anneke-meerkotter-salc.jpg?w=235&h=356 235w, https:\/\/76crimes.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/07\/anneke-meerkotter-salc.jpg 300w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 235px) 100vw, 235px\" \/><\/a><p class=\"wp-caption-text\">Anneke Meerkotter<\/p><\/div>\n<p>Kasonkomona\u2019s trial started in October 2013. On 25 February 2014, after the close of the prosecution\u2019s case, Magistrate Ng\u2019ambi ruled that the prosecution had not made out a <em>prima facie<\/em> case against the accused and acquitted Kasonkomona. The State appealed this ruling. In its submissions on appeal, the State argued that it was justifiable to limit the right to freedom of expression where persons expressed their views on the rights of LGBT persons. Justice Mulongoti confirmed the 2014 ruling that the State did not present sufficient evidence on all the elements of the offence.<\/p>\n<p>\u201cThe judgment of the High Court is important because it confirms that it is not unlawful to lobby for law and policy reform and for the protection of the rights of marginalised groups,\u201d says Anneke Meerkotter, from SALC. \u201cIt in unacceptable that the State doggedly pursued criminal prosecution of a human rights activist when they never had any evidential basis for such persecution.The outcome of this case is a victory for freedom of expression in Zambia.\u201d<\/p>\n<p>\u201cThe judgment is a great relief. This matter took more than two years to pass through the courts, and has had a chilling effect on freedom of speech in Zambia. With the judgment, we can finally move forward and work towards firmly establishing Zambia as a country in which democratic values such as freedom of expression and the tolerance of diverse opinions can thrive,\u201d says Paul Kasonkomona.<\/p>\n<p>Kasonkomona was represented by Sunday Nkonde SC from SBN Legal Practitioners and supported by SALC.<\/p>\n<h6>Related articles<\/h6>\n<ul>\n<li><a

class=\"wp-caption-text\">Defendants Philip Mubiana and James Mwape leave the courtroom (Photo courtesy of the Lusaka Times)<\/p><\/div>\n<p>Zambian officials took offense this week at the presence of diplomatic observers in a courtroom where two allegedly gay young men are on trial on charges of violating Zambia’s anti-homosexuality law.<\/p>\n<p><strong>“US, German support for sodomy-accused disappoints State”<\/strong> stated the headline in the <a href=\"http:\/\/www.daily-mail.co.zm\/index.php\/local-news\/item\/5346-us-german-support-for-sodomy-accused-disappoints-state\">Zambian Daily Mail<\/a>.<\/p>\n<p><strong>“Zambia govt upset with USA, Germany envoys for supporting detained gay couple” <\/strong>said the <a title=\"Zambia govt upset with USA, Germany envoys for supporting detained gay couple\" href=\"https:\/\/www.zambianwatchdog.com\/zambia-govt-upset-with-usa-germany-envoys-for-supporting-detained-gay-couple\/\" rel=\"bookmark\">Zambian Watchdog<\/a>‘s headline.<\/p>\n<p><strong>“US, German support for two men accused of homosexuality disappoints Government” <\/strong>was the <a href=\"http:\/\/http:\/\/www.lusakatimes.com\/2014\/06\/25\/us-german-support-two-men-accused-homosexuality-disappoints-government\/\">Lusaka Times<\/a> version.<\/p>\n<p>What did the diplomats do?<\/p>\n<p>They simply were present in a courtroom where two young Zambian men might be told they will be imprisoned for 15 years to life for their sexual orientation.<\/p>\n<p>On June 23, United States charge d\u2019affaires David Young, German ambassador to Zambia Bernd Finke and UNAIDS country co-ordinator Helen Frary went to Kapiri Mposhi to visit the scheduled conclusion of the sodomy trial of Philip Mubiana, 22, and James Mwape, 21, who have been jailed for more than a year without bail while awaiting the end of their trial. As it turned out, the presiding magistrate was absent on June 23 and reportedly was ill.\u00a0<a href=\"https:\/\/76crimes.com\/2014\/06\/23\/verdict-delayed-again-in-zambian-anti-gay-trial\/\">That delayed the expected verdict and sentencing until July 3<\/a>.<\/p>\n<p>George Zulu, permanent secretary of the Zambian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, criticized the diplomats just for being present in the courtroom, because they have previously expressed their opposition to Zambia’s anti-gay law. As reported in the Lusaka Times, Zulu said:<\/p>\n<blockquote><p>“[The diplomats] were wrong to travel to [the court] to give solidarity to the two men accused of practising homosexuality.<\/p>\n<p>“He said Government is disappointed at the conduct of the diplomats because supporting homosexuality is against the values of Zambia as a Christian nation.<\/p>\n<p>“Mr Zulu said giving solidarity to the two men accused of practising homosexuality is a clear indication that the diplomats want to influence the decision of the court.<\/p>\n<p>” ‘We are urging our diplomats accredited to this country to respect our laws, which are anchored on our Constitution.<\/p>\n<p>” ‘Zambia is a country of laws and we want the courts to be independent and not to be influenced by our diplomats.’ “<\/p><\/blockquote>\n<p>The Zambian constitution defines Zambia as a Christian nation.<\/p>\n<p>Although many Christians believe that LGBTI people are created and loved by God like everyone else and therefore deserve justice and fair treatment like everyone else, Zambian officials impose a different theology.<\/p>\n<p>They side with Christians who believe that homosexuality is a sin — along with pride, gluttony and lust — but that, unlike those sins, it should be punished by imprisonment.<\/p>\n<h6 class=\"zemanta-related-title\"><strong>Related articles<\/strong><\/h6>\n<ul

Credit: DIRCO.<\/p><\/div>\n<p>Zambia\u2019s enviable record of 25 years of peaceful democratic elections appears to be under threat. With less than ten weeks to go before the country goes to the polls on 11 August, several disturbing irregularities in the electoral process are emerging.<\/p>\n<p>The controversial decision by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to award the contract to print the ballot papers to a previously unknown Dubai-based firm, the questionable appointment of unqualified\u00a0allies of President Edgar Lungu to the Constitutional Court, the suspiciously hurried enactment of legislation conferring immunity from prosecution on ECZ officials, the registration of allegedly thousands of foreign nationals on the national electoral roll, and the alarming prospects of military interference in the political process, could all undermine popular acceptance of the election results.<\/p>\n<p>The frontrunners in the presidential race are the incumbent Lungu of the governing Patriotic Front (PF), and Hakainde Hichilema of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND).<\/p>\n<p>[<em>See: <a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2015\/12\/15\/can-zambias-opposition-unseat-president-lungu-in-the-2016-elections\/\">Can Zambia\u2019s opposition unseat President Lungu in the 2016 elections?<\/a><\/em>]<\/p>\n<p>Heightening the prospects for a disputed election result and political violence is the growing sense that neither party appears to be countenancing defeat. Over the last few weeks, both the PF and UPND have talked up their chances of winning, and understandably so.<\/p>\n<p>With the PF only having been in power for five years and Lungu for a mere 15 months (following the death in office of predecessor Michael Sata), the administration feels entitled to more time. It has also expressed confidence that Zambians will look favourably on the party\u2019s record and renew its mandate. Likewise, the UPND and Hichilema, who has spent a decade in opposition, are tantalisingly close to power and have voiced their conviction that their long wait for power will soon be over.<\/p>\n<p>Lungu and the PF are desperate to retain power and continue enjoying the accumulation of privilege, while Hichilema and the UPND are determined to secure their turn to do so. The stakes are high and the defeated party\u2019s willingness to accept the electoral results will, to a large extent, be determined by the credibility of the electoral process. However, if recent events are anything to go by, a disputed result appears almost inevitable.<\/p>\n<p>[<em>See<\/em><strong><em>:\u00a0<a title=\"Permalink to Zambia\u2019s disputed elections: on claims of binned ballots and \u201csystematic bias\u201d\" href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/08\/17\/zambias-disputed-elections-on-binned-ballots-and-systematic-bias\/\" rel=\"bookmark\">Zambia\u2019s disputed 2016 elections: on claims of binned ballots and \u201csystematic bias\u201d<\/a><\/em><\/strong>]<\/p>\n<p><strong>ConCourt judges: buddies of the incumbent or fair adjudicators<\/strong>?<\/p>\n<p>In February 2016, President Lungu appointed \u2013 as per the revised Constitution of Zambia and subject to parliamentary approval \u2013 six nominees to serve as judges on the newly-created Constitutional Court (Concourt). These were: Hildah Chibomba, Margaret Munalula, Mugeni Mulenga, Anne Mwewa-Sitali, Enoch Mulembe and Palan Mulonda.<\/p>\n<p>The ConCourt has the final say on all matters relating to the interpretation of the Constitution including the election of the President. For instance, in the event that an election petition is filed against the President-Elect after elections, the ConCourt has the legal mandate to hear the matter within 14 days of its filing and can dismiss the petition or call for a fresh poll within 30 days. The decision of the ConCourt on any post-election case brought before it is final.<\/p>\n<p>The ConCourt would thus be central to any post-electoral dispute, and opposition parties and civil society have raised concerns that half of the six judges appointed to the Court have close ties to the incumbent. Two were Lungu\u2019s classmates at law school in the 1970s, while a third is a relative who controversially secured Lungu\u2019s nomination to the PF presidency in late-2014 through questionable judicial decisions against his opponents.<\/p>\n<p>These links to the President has led the opposition to claim that the ConCourt will be unlikely to ever rule against Lungu. Yet a more important criticism in fact is that none of the appointed individuals even meet the constitutional requirements to serve as a judge on the ConCourt: namely, specialised training or experience in human rights or constitutional law and 15 years\u2019 experience as a legal practitioner.<\/p>\n<p>When John Sangwa, a prominent Zambian constitutional law expert, <a href=\"http:\/\/www.postzambia.com\/news.php?id=16291%20and%20http:\/\/www.zambia-weekly.com\/media\/zambia_weekly_-_week_11.pdf\">wrote<\/a> to Lungu, pointing out these shortcomings and asking him to reconsider the choice of his nominees, the president ignored him. And thanks to the ruling party\u2019s majority in parliament, all six nominees were ratified. Opposition parties argue that the appointments are part of a calculated strategy aimed at ensuring Lungu receives a favourable hearing should the election results be contested.<\/p>\n<p><strong>We are coming to vote<\/strong><\/p>\n<p>In December 2015, <em>The Post<\/em>, the leading private newspaper in the country, reported that ruling party officials were recruiting foreign nationals in border areas of Eastern and Luapula provinces \u2013 both of which are PF strongholds \u2013 to register as voters in Zambia. The Eastern Province borders Malawi while Luapula shares a border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.<\/p>\n<p>Peter Sukwa, the investigative journalist who exposed the story and attempted to take pictures of PF officials conducting the exercise, was left with fractured ribs and a deaf ear after supporters of the ruling party <a href=\"http:\/\/www.postzambia.com\/news.php?id=13821\">beat him<\/a> and urinated on him. It took specialist treatment from the country\u2019s top hospital to save his life. The incident highlighted the rising levels of lawlessness that have characterised much of Lungu\u2019s short, beleaguered term in office.<\/p>\n<p>Undeterred, <em>The Post<\/em> pursued the story further and in May 2016 published evidence of several Malawians in possession of Zambian identity documents and voters\u2019 cards. A check on the provisional electoral roll using the verification process devised by the ECZ confirmed the appearance of these foreign nationals. Furthermore, in separate interviews with the newspaper, some of the Malawians involved in the scheme testified that they had been mobilised with incentives by Zambian authorities and advised to assume common local names to register as voters in several constituencies of the Eastern Province.<\/p>\n<p>Chisamba, a community leader of Malawi\u2019s Mchinji district, led the <a href=\"http:\/\/www.postzambia.com\/news.php?id=18177\">testimonies<\/a>, saying: \u201cWe are coming to vote. The PF government helped us get these voting requirements and it is our democratic right\u2026We are all ready to come and vote and\u2026are not afraid because we have been permitted by the Zambian government\u201d.<\/p>\n<p>Amidst unverified reports that up to 500,000 foreign nationals from neighbouring countries are appearing on the voters\u2019 roll, the opposition UPND went to the police this May to report the matter. But the police are yet to make any formal arrests, while the ruling party has dismissed the allegations as an opposition smear campaign against the ECZ.<\/p>\n<p>Exonerating itself, the electoral body itself responded that the issuance of a national registration identity card, the prerequisite for acquiring a voters\u2019 card, is the preserve of the government. The ECZ spokesperson <a href=\"http:\/\/www.postzambia.com\/news.php?id=18045\">said<\/a>: \u201cthe commission does not register foreigners as voters\u2026the basis for registration is a green national registration card and the assumption is that when a person walks to registration officers with a green national registration card, that means that person is a Zambian\u2026It is the Department of National Registration [a division of the Ministry of Home Affairs] that issues national registration cards.\u201d<\/p>\n<p>Opposition parties have cited both the registration of foreign nationals and the police\u2019s lacklustre response as evidence that the ECZ colluded with the governing authorities to manipulate the elections. How this issue is resolved over the next few weeks will have a crucial bearing on the credibility of the electoral process. Left unaddressed, and in the event of a victory for Lungu, it may spark generalised anger or feed into xenophobic attacks against Congolese, Malawian and other foreign nationals. The opposition may also contest a PF victory on the grounds that it was secured with the illegal help of non-Zambian voters.<\/p>\n<p>Adding to the tension is also the fact that the provisional voters\u2019 roll contains monumental errors. \u00a0In many instances, people who registered in urban centres have found their registrations moved to rural areas without their consent. And media reports suggest that this has been most common in opposition strongholds.<\/p>\n<p>The scale of the reported anomalies combined with the limited time provided by the ECZ for voters to verify their particulars (slightly over a week) has fed suspicions that there is a systematic attempt at play to minimise the number of opposition supporters able to vote.<\/p>\n<p><strong>The new electoral law: institutionalising wrongdoing? <\/strong><\/p>\n<p><strong>\u00a0<\/strong>In early May, the PF took to parliament a hastily arranged bill that proposed far-reaching amendments to legislation on the administration and organisation of elections. Among other things, the bill sought to provide ECZ officials with immunity from prosecution for any decisions taken in exercise of their duties and to criminalise the disclosure or publication of ECZ documents to unauthorised persons. It also proposed allowing the President to sack ECZ commissioners for any reason.<\/p>\n<p>Despite <a href=\"http:\/\/postzambia.com\/news.php?id=17806#sthash.ZVWLdwMA.dpuf\">criticism<\/a> that the changes would place the electoral commission above public accountability and undermine its independence, the bill was passed a few minutes before the dissolution of parliament on 13 May. At the time of writing, the bill has yet to receive presidential assent and the final version may, according to parliamentary sources, have different clauses to those that have been published.<\/p>\n<p>The main opposition parties, led by the UPND, see this new law and its suspicious timing as further evidence that Lungu is preparing the ground for a fixed election. They claim that conferring immunity on ECZ officials is meant to protect those who may facilitate the manipulation of election results, while the classification of ECZ documents is a strategy designed to prevent the media from using, say, parallel vote tabulation to publish election results other than those formally approved.<\/p>\n<p>For their part, the ruling authorities have dismissed these claims as unfounded, arguing that the amendments were meant to enhance the independence of the ECZ and bring its operations into line with the amended national constitution.<\/p>\n<p>Also adding to concerns, Lungu has made several changes to the ECZ leadership, moving the widely respected former chairperson Irene Mambilima to the Supreme Court and appointing Esau Chulu, who had served as Mambilima\u2019s deputy, as her successor. The President further nominated three individuals with effectively no experience in managing national elections as ECZ commissioners. Opposition parties allege that Lungu\u2019s reconstitution of the electoral body on the eve of a crucial election demonstrates his determination to ensure a favourable outcome.<\/p>\n<p><strong>From ballot to bullet? The military\u2019s increasing involvement<\/strong><\/p>\n<p>On 20 May, the commander of the Zambia Air Force (ZAF) issued a strongly-worded warning that the military would tightly control the use of the \u201cinnocent\u201d airspace throughout the campaign period, ostensibly to protect it from abuse.<\/p>\n<p>In remarks that are worth quoting at length, General Eric Chimense <a href=\"http:\/\/www.openzambia.com\/2016\/05\/we-will-restrict-use-of-airspace-during-campaign-says-zaf-commander\/\">said<\/a> that: \u201cUnder the prevailing security conditions today, as Zambia Air Force, we are duty-bound to take stringent measures that would prevent our innocent air space from being used wrongly by the perpetrators of violence within our nation. We as service chiefs are seriously concerned with the carelessness and lack of patriotism, hooliganism and total indiscipline that has been observed over the past few months from some of our citizens\u2026These individuals have been justifying the acts of violence or rather of their followers in the name of retaliation or indeed self-defence\u2026It is a threat that cannot be allowed to continue growing in our society. Some of the perpetrators of genocide we hear being arrested in our sister countries within Africa are because of the statements these individuals made before genocide. We as Zambia are known the world over as peacekeepers. We do not want peacekeepers to come to Zambia.\u201d<\/p>\n<p>Chimese\u2019s public address was generally perceived as a veiled message to the UPND, whose leaders recently advised members to defend themselves against attacks by ruling party supporters in the face of a lack of protection from police. The General\u2019s pledge to protect the airspace meanwhile was seen as a euphemism for justifying the Air Force’s\u00a0frustrations of the opposition\u2019s electoral campaigns on the flimsy grounds of ensuring security while Lungu is flying across the country. This conclusion is backed by the fact that a few days earlier, UPND leaders had complained to the ECZ that the ZAF command had grounded its campaigns with the party\u2019s airplanes denied clearance to fly.<\/p>\n<p>The remarks by the Air Force commander were thus important for several reasons. First, they are evidence that top military commanders are siding with the governing party. Second, they highlight the increasing involvement of the Zambian military in electoral contests. In the run-up to the January 2015 presidential election, military chiefs reportedly backed Lungu, hitherto the Minister of Defence, in the PF\u2019s divisive succession wrangles. And the ZAF commander\u2019s recent comments provide possible indications of the consolidation of that relationship.<\/p>\n<p>Since ZAF helicopters ordinarily transport election materials to and from rural constituencies before and after voting, Chimese\u2019s remarks may further be interpreted as an early indication that the authorities are preparing the ground for manipulating the election outcome. For instance, if the ZAF choppers are to play a part in rigging the vote, the authorities may be pre-emptively trying to prevent the opposition from collecting evidence of such activities.<\/p>\n<p>Furthermore, the commander\u2019s comments arguably demonstrate an attempt to intimidate the population into submission in the event of a disputed election outcome. And finally, given that the rank and file of the military may retain different political persuasions to their commanders, such remarks also have the potential to divide the security forces and foment protracted civil strife in the event of a disputed election.<\/p>\n<p><strong>Printing papers: a controversial contract<\/strong><\/p>\n<p>In all this, one of the most worrying developments has been the decision of the ECZ to award the contract to print ballot papers to a previously little-known Dubai-based firm, Al Ghurairi Printing and Publishing. Civil society, the press and opposition parties protested strongly against this decision, claiming that the company printed ballot papers for Uganda\u2019s disputed February 2016 presidential poll. The ECZ denied that Al Ghurairi had any involvement in those elections, though in fact both sides are mistaken. The truth is that the company printed ballot papers for Uganda\u2019s local government elections held alongside the presidential poll.<\/p>\n<p>Regardless, an explanation by the ECZ is still needed, especially since the Dubai-based firm quoted $3.6 million for the contract, which is more than double the amount tendered by the South African company Ren-Form CC, which has printed Zambia\u2019s ballot papers for the last three years,\u00a0including those for the 2015 presidential by-election. Since 2006, ballot papers for Zambia\u2019s general elections have always been printed in nearby South Africa, raising questions about the change to United Arab Emirates. Claims by the ECZ that Al Ghurairi provides superior security features have not been substantiated.<\/p>\n<p>To the delight of opposition parties, Ren-Form CC subsequently lodged an appeal against the ECZ\u2019s decision to the Zambia Public Procurement Authority (ZPPA), a government regulatory body with the power to review matters relating to public procurement. After careful consideration, the ZPPA advised the ECZ to cancel the award, citing a number of irregularities, and to restart the tender nomination process.<\/p>\n<p>This recommendation drew sharp criticism from the ruling authorities who, according to well-placed sources in ZPPA and ECZ, asked the regulatory body to rescind the decision. A few days later, however, the ECZ confirmed the final award to Al Ghurairi, prompting further accusations that the Dubai-based firm will be involved in efforts to rig the elections.<\/p>\n<p>Hichilema has been resolute in his opposition and warned that if the deal is not cancelled, it might plunge the nation into chaos. Al Ghurairi\u2019s failure to address the complaints of opposition parties has only fed into growing speculation that it is colluding with the ruling authorities to undermine Zambia\u2019s electoral process. It would be astonishing to see a company genuinely seeking to build an international reputation open itself up to such criticism.<\/p>\n<p>The tenacity of ordinary Zambians in resisting provocation and avoiding political violence over the last 30 years has been remarkable. One can only hope that this record endures and that the mounting irregularities around the current elections do not test the patience of the opposition and the general public to breaking point.<\/p>\n<p><strong>Sishuwa Sishuwa is a Zambian political analyst based at the University of Oxford.<\/strong><\/p>\n <\/div><!-- end article content --> \n <!-- TAGS -->\n <!-- NAV -->\n \n <div

The problem is that those who are complaining about all the issues raised here have failed to take a legal case to prove the allegations! The ECZ challenged opposition parties to prove their allegations on ballot printing but none did. The same applies to all other things reported in media and repeated here-they have never been proven. Couldn’t it be that those who are likely to loose are waging a psychological warfare and preparing masses for a possible election dispute once their loss is confirmed?<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically -->\n\t\t<\/li><!-- #comment-## -->\n\t\t<li class=\"comment odd alt thread-odd thread-alt depth-1\">\n\t\t\t<div id=\"comment-82774\" class=\"comment-article media\">\n <div class=\"comment-author clear-fix\">\n <div class=\"comment-avatar\">\n <img alt='' src='http:\/\/1.gravatar.com\/avatar\/d96c52a257f468bdbb8310832c37fb1a?s=60&d=mm&r=g' srcset='http:\/\/1.gravatar.com\/avatar\/d96c52a257f468bdbb8310832c37fb1a?s=120&d=mm&r=g 2x' class='avatar avatar-60 photo' height='60' width='60' \/> \n <\/div>\n <span class=\"comment-author-name\">Monte McMurchy<\/span> \t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"comment-time\"><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/06\/01\/zambias-2016-elections-is-a-disputed-outcome-now-inevitable\/#comment-82774\" class=\"comment-timestamp\">1 June, 2016 at 18:47 <\/a><\/span>\n <span class=\"comment-links\">\n <\/span>\n <\/div><!-- .comment-meta -->\n \n <div class=\"comment-text\">\n \t\t\t\t\n \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t<div class=\"comment-content\">\n \t\t\t\t\t<p>Does Zambia require a New Electoral System?<\/p>\n<p>An electoral system is [merely] an administrative logistical process designed to ensure that an expressive choice by an entity is both registered and designated to a specific individual or organization without bias or any other form of administrative intimidatory malfeasance.<\/p>\n<p>Zambia does not require ‘a new electoral system’ in that the fundamental civic electoral ontology of probity and trust is no different than that element of trust with the requisite administrative conduct which is required in other electoral jurisdictions whether in Canada, North America or in France, Europe.<\/p>\n<p>The civic electoral administrative system ought not be suborned to a particular geographic or ethnic region. An electoral system to be effective must be deemed ‘trust worthy’ and be held to strict public administrative disclosure ensuring that the expressive choice has been expressed in the manner indicated by the elector.<\/p>\n<p>A Zambian electoral systems may require localized ‘tweaking’ to ensure that the local Zambian electors are capable of registering their intent without fear or favour. Such tweaking may include pictographs for those people unable to read or write. Logistical extensions in terms of time may be built into the Zambian indigenous electoral process recognizing that transportation of the electoral materials do require time has local infrastructure may require additional time. Media and related public policy concerns must be addressed to ensure that the localized conditions are appropriately represented and addressed ensuring value neutral respect of the civic electoral administrative process.<\/p>\n<p>This in no manner indicates that the essential electoral process is different or requires fundamental intrinsic modification as the essence of the process is no different. Choice registered–choice counted–choice expressed without any external bias or corrupt manner of practice designated to confer an unwarranted advantage to another.<\/p>\n<p>In regions of political administrative fragility, greater concern must be addressed to the electoral system fundamentals ensuring that the fundamental civic electoral integrity is not compromised which ought to be an essential consideration for all electoral systems in the world.<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically -->\n\t\t<\/li><!-- #comment-## -->\n\t\t<li class=\"comment even thread-even depth-1\">\n\t\t\t<div id=\"comment-82775\" class=\"comment-article media\">\n <div class=\"comment-author clear-fix\">\n <div class=\"comment-avatar\">\n <img alt='' src='http:\/\/2.gravatar.com\/avatar\/592bb39cf272b698b2c8e8d85a1feafd?s=60&d=mm&r=g' srcset='http:\/\/2.gravatar.com\/avatar\/592bb39cf272b698b2c8e8d85a1feafd?s=120&d=mm&r=g 2x' class='avatar avatar-60 photo' height='60' width='60' \/> \n <\/div>\n <span class=\"comment-author-name\">Lubwa Mission<\/span> \t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"comment-time\"><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/06\/01\/zambias-2016-elections-is-a-disputed-outcome-now-inevitable\/#comment-82775\" class=\"comment-timestamp\">1 June, 2016 at 18:51 <\/a><\/span>\n <span class=\"comment-links\">\n <\/span>\n <\/div><!-- .comment-meta -->\n \n <div class=\"comment-text\">\n \t\t\t\t\n \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t<div class=\"comment-content\">\n \t\t\t\t\t<p>The Fox – settle down!

The opposition are just scared of their own shadows. If the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) was corrupt, how did PF manage to unseat the then ruling party (MMD) from power. These guys just want sympathy from the outside world. Let them put up a good fight if they are real men. PF was in opposition for over 10 years and each time they were beaten they would cry but never gave up until the Late President Micheal Sata won with a big margin and convincingly whereby one big province (Western Province) was not even counted and therefore he was declared winner. Shame upon you the agents of doom because no matter what happens your agenda will not come to pass. The problem is that some opposition leaders are running out of time as Presidents in their own Parties and therefore want to force their way to State House at all costs. The spirit of the good Lord will prevail over this country and those wishing doom for this country will not succeed in Jesus’ name. Whoever wishes doom upon this country shall not prosper because we believe in the living God and we are the apple of his eye. What patriotism are you trying to portray by wishing doom for this nation while you are pretending to be comfortable in a foreign country. If this nation is set on fire, don’t forget that you will also be affected because you have relatives here and they will not be spared. When hell break loose it does not only go for the people in Government but the whole nation will be on fire. So let us wish for the best for our nation.

All opposition parties complain before the elections to get the sympathy of the international community. I find the article to be too exaggerated and anti-Lungu. If HH loses its not because of the ballots being printed in Dubai or ECZ has new judges. To me HH will lose because he is a rookie politician who to this day is in a check mate position over the VP position. His brand for “change and forward” has been diluted by defectors from PF, who have completely taken over UPND. So HH the man who was once in control of UPND is being controlled by the cartel of pf defectors. As such his political rookiness has began to show. Lungu is just now a better politician and he might win because he is the same man before and after Sata died. Lungu is his own man and his sticking to Inonge Wina as his running mate after all the pressure to dump, has once again proved that Lungu is not afraid to make difficult decisions, where as HH is indecisive and that’s what will cost him his 2016 presidency.<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically -->\n\t\t<\/li><!-- #comment-## -->\n\t\t<li class=\"comment even thread-even depth-1\">\n\t\t\t<div id=\"comment-82798\" class=\"comment-article media\">\n <div class=\"comment-author clear-fix\">\n <div class=\"comment-avatar\">\n <img alt='' src='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/94b788d227ea3a6f064e0ae6c79362f8?s=60&d=mm&r=g' srcset='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/94b788d227ea3a6f064e0ae6c79362f8?s=120&d=mm&r=g 2x' class='avatar avatar-60 photo' height='60' width='60' \/> \n <\/div>\n <span class=\"comment-author-name\">Sam Chungu<\/span> \t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"comment-time\"><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/06\/01\/zambias-2016-elections-is-a-disputed-outcome-now-inevitable\/#comment-82798\" class=\"comment-timestamp\">2 June, 2016 at 11:37 <\/a><\/span>\n <span class=\"comment-links\">\n <\/span>\n <\/div><!-- .comment-meta -->\n \n <div class=\"comment-text\">\n \t\t\t\t\n \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t<div class=\"comment-content\">\n \t\t\t\t\t<p>Excellent piece. To those who choose to ignore the warnings or want to suggest the author is not black enough, or African or Zambian enough, or domestically aware enough, or whatever else without addressing the issues he has raised:<br \/>\nIt is a fact that the appointment of the judges to the highest court in the land the Constitutional Court (because the Constitution is supreme to all else in Zambia) was mired in controversy and was not supported by the Law Association. At the very least, the people of Zambia should be concerned that there is only one experienced senior judge (Chibomba) on this court (Mulenga is not very experienced as a judge, was only in the High Court and was controversial). And no legal practitioners with a track record in constitutional litigation and jurisprudence. Amateurs.<br \/>\nIt is a fact that the ZPPA advised ECZ to cancel the Al Ghurairi contract for ballot printing, and that ECZ ignored this.<br \/>\nIt is a fact that amendments to our electoral legislation were put to parliament in May, which was dissolved soon after but not before approving these amendments including the power of the President to dismiss commissioners. It is a fact that the President has appointed new ECZ commissioners who appear not to have any relevant expertise or experience. It is a clear that under these circumstances ECZ cannot be considered independent.<br \/>\nIt is a fact that the Air Force Commander made the quoted comments (I watched him on ZNBC) and he thereby waded into the political arena which is a big no-no in our constitutional dispensation \u2013 Article 190(1) states that the Defence Force (which includes the Air Force) \u201cshall (b) be non-partisan; (c) not further the interests or cause of a particular organisation; and (d) not act against a political interest or cause permitted in this Constitution or as prescribed.\u201d<br \/>\nHe also stepped into the domestic arena which is not within his purview as the Constitution clearly states in Article 192 (2) that the Defence Force shall (a) preserve and defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic (this means against external threats, nothing to do with internal or domestic issues); (b) foster harmony and understanding between the Zambia Army, Zambia Air Force, an auxiliary unit and members of society (all members not just PF members); and (c) co-operate with State organs and State institutions in times of public emergencies and national disasters (not elections).<br \/>\nSo his utterances are unconstitutional and that should worry all of us, no matter our political party.<br \/>\nThere are other facts: Lungu held a press conference at State House just before the campaigns kicked off, at which there was clapping and cheering whenever he spoke about the PF and \u201chis\u201d government and its supposed achievements; and he stated there that he was going to be re-elected \u2013in my opinion, this is hardly statesmanlike behaviour from a Head of State addressing ALL the people of Zambia from their State House.<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically -->\n\t\t<\/li><!-- #comment-## -->\n\t\t<li class=\"comment odd alt thread-odd thread-alt depth-1\">\n\t\t\t<div id=\"comment-82800\" class=\"comment-article media\">\n <div class=\"comment-author clear-fix\">\n <div class=\"comment-avatar\">\n <img alt='' src='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/c649d798f903c2c1db4049f0627bbdb0?s=60&d=mm&r=g' srcset='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/c649d798f903c2c1db4049f0627bbdb0?s=120&d=mm&r=g 2x' class='avatar avatar-60 photo' height='60' width='60' \/> \n <\/div>\n <span class=\"comment-author-name\">Chiga<\/span> \t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"comment-time\"><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/06\/01\/zambias-2016-elections-is-a-disputed-outcome-now-inevitable\/#comment-82800\" class=\"comment-timestamp\">2 June, 2016 at 13:48 <\/a><\/span>\n <span class=\"comment-links\">\n <\/span>\n <\/div><!-- .comment-meta -->\n \n <div class=\"comment-text\">\n \t\t\t\t\n \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t<div class=\"comment-content\">\n \t\t\t\t\t<p>a good piece of writing but much of it is based on hear say and news paper reports.

Potential flare points that appear on prima-facie basis are what is of concern. It\u2019s therefore misplaced to blame the writer for wishing the country ill when he highlights what’s purportedly wrong about the process as its panning out. It’s equally misplaced to suggest that just because allegations of wrongdoing regarding the electoral process were made in the past, and not proved, then any current suggestions of short comings should be glossed over. That\u2019s flawed logic.<br \/>\nThe author clearly states that such happenings preceding each election since 1991 keep testing Zambian’s patience and he rightfully observes that such testing cannot last forever as one day tipping point will be reached.<br \/>\nThe real problem with tackling genuine issues to do with elections is the entrenched partisan positions that transcend what is in the common good. Refusal to compromise on assumed partisan positions is probably what the author left out in what will contribute to the coming election being disputed. It seems partisans are prepared to sacrifice reasonableness just to keep their ground. Sadly, such kind of an approach more often than not is what flames conflicts. And there should be no illusion that Zambia is perpetually designed to be peaceful and immune from strife. Other Africans, like Zambians, have had failure to agree on modalities of fair governance lead them down paths of conflict they never at any juncture wished on themselves. So Zambia is no exception. Hence, those that are tasked to ensure governance matters are dispensed fairly, with wider consensus, should ensure the process does just that.<br \/>\nA process riddled with callous flaws should not be tolerated or even excused. Ironing out those flaws and coming up with something fair should be the correct thing to do, should be the expected thing to do. It\u2019s for this reason that the author is on a correct path by trying to bring out perceived wrongs with the process in the first place and we will be missing it altogether if we wholesomely repudiate what is being said in this article.<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically -->\n\t\t<\/li><!-- #comment-## -->\n\t\t<li class=\"comment even thread-even depth-1\">\n\t\t\t<div id=\"comment-82842\" class=\"comment-article media\">\n <div class=\"comment-author clear-fix\">\n <div class=\"comment-avatar\">\n <img alt='' src='http:\/\/1.gravatar.com\/avatar\/a59e7b88d695c07288c32cad29f3c1a9?s=60&d=mm&r=g' srcset='http:\/\/1.gravatar.com\/avatar\/a59e7b88d695c07288c32cad29f3c1a9?s=120&d=mm&r=g 2x' class='avatar avatar-60 photo' height='60' width='60' \/> \n <\/div>\n <span class=\"comment-author-name\"><a href='http:\/\/africanarguments.org' rel='external nofollow' class='url'>Kelvin Kondjeni Naholo<\/a><\/span> \t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"comment-time\"><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/06\/01\/zambias-2016-elections-is-a-disputed-outcome-now-inevitable\/#comment-82842\" class=\"comment-timestamp\">4 June, 2016 at 11:07 <\/a><\/span>\n <span class=\"comment-links\">\n <\/span>\n <\/div><!-- .comment-meta -->\n \n <div class=\"comment-text\">\n \t\t\t\t\n \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t<div class=\"comment-content\">\n \t\t\t\t\t<p>Zambia lately has been treading on dangerous grounds when it comes to electoral matters. When MMD unseated UNIP it was it was through a thin line because systems were deliberately made difficult for those in opposition. The defeat of UNIP was inevitable as masses grew tired of the state machinery. Rather than levelling the playing field for a plural well managed functioning democracy, MMD found itself in the shoes of UNIP by ensuring a tight grip on power and manipulate anything that can lead to the triumph of the opposition. The 1996 constitutional ammendment is one such example. The MMD made a model of persecution and humiliation of anything opposition. How many times was Michael Sata rubbished and shamed by MMD? Most of the laws they enacted had little to do with the upliftment of ordinary men and women in Matero, Mandevu, Chilenje, Choma, Chipata, Kasumbalesa etc from poverty because theirs was to manipulate and legisloot the dry. Because of their selective amnesia and proved that we Afrikans never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity by learning from history, nemesis caught up with them. The history of misrule, selfishness, self-enrichment, exclusivity, oppressive of dissidents was too much to bare hence MMD’s defeat was inevitable. PF came with good promises. Promises of reform in the enhancement of democracy and good-governance, reforms in levelling the political playing field for all electoral participants, respect of human rights, inclusivity, independence of institutions i.e judiciary, ECZ, media etc and today PF has become a shadow of its once promising vision for Zambia. For instance, PF has made ZNBC exclusively its mouth piece and propaganda machinery with few exceptions of weak oppositions who receive some little airtime. PF lead government has come to be known as a serial harasser of opposition figures on excuses rather than charges. Today PF is also engaged in politics of we defeated you and we will rule you for the next 30,40 or 100 years. Today there is so much shenanigans in the appointment of institutional chiefs. Foreigners are being recruited to part-take in Zambia election. Media e.g Post is threatened with closer because of its stances which in most cases are in disagreement with govt. <\/p>\n<p>Independent, non-partisan institutions are deliberately being disarmed and swallowed up living their credibility hanging in the balance. The question is, is this the path ordinary Zambian men and women have chosen to the promised land? Its true the PF as the UNIP and MMD have done some things exceptionally well such as the road infrastructures and communication as it failed handsomely in some areas. <\/p>\n<p>Zambian politicians across the board must stop beating war drums and ensure that elections are not a DO OR DIE affair and those in opposition prepare to accept results if they are genuinely beaten as those ruling to accept the outcomes if they are defeated and bare in mind that there is life after presidency or power. Let them start thinking of the next generation rather than the next election. A flawed disputed election result will put the nation up against each other. And this will be a tragedy of gigantic proportion to the peaceful people of Zambia. Politicians should always be careful with manipulation because after all its not about them but about the country and them is just to facilitate. Wishing you a happy election date Zambia 2016.<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically -->\n\t\t<\/li><!-- #comment-## -->\n\t\t<li class=\"comment odd alt thread-odd thread-alt depth-1\">\n\t\t\t<div id=\"comment-82849\" class=\"comment-article media\">\n <div class=\"comment-author clear-fix\">\n <div class=\"comment-avatar\">\n <img alt='' src='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/61be09336c9fe1dc8dd28231d07bca5c?s=60&d=mm&r=g' srcset='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/61be09336c9fe1dc8dd28231d07bca5c?s=120&d=mm&r=g 2x' class='avatar avatar-60 photo' height='60' width='60' \/> \n <\/div>\n <span class=\"comment-author-name\">Election Integrity<\/span> \t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"comment-time\"><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/06\/01\/zambias-2016-elections-is-a-disputed-outcome-now-inevitable\/#comment-82849\" class=\"comment-timestamp\">4 June, 2016 at 16:50 <\/a><\/span>\n <span class=\"comment-links\">\n <\/span>\n <\/div><!-- .comment-meta -->\n \n <div class=\"comment-text\">\n \t\t\t\t\n \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t<div class=\"comment-content\">\n \t\t\t\t\t<p>It’s not the voting that’s democracy; it’s the counting. ~Tom Stoppard, Jumpers<\/p>\n<p>It is enough that the people know there was an election.

Most people are objecting to the sudden decision of printing ballots in an undemocratic country to facilitate a democratic process, 2.Most people are uncomfortable with a company that printed part of the ballots in the disputed elections in Uganda based on local stakeholders and the international community. 3. Most people are surprised at the sudden shift from South Africa to a far away undemocratic country, no reasons have been provided as to why there is a move from south Africa to a far away undemocratic country, leaving good references of the company business was done with in the past. 4. Zambia Printers was one of the company’s that bidded, most people are questioning why the local printer was not given preference for local empowerment purposes and especially that there were previous talks that the ballots would be printed locally, most people want to know what happened. 5.The voice of the local stakeholders has not be considered, and most people are questioning the contentious decision. 6. It will be very costly to monitor the process in a very far way place, most people question the cost benefit analysis, for monitoring to be of quality, observers need to be present to see all the ballots printed and inspect them, the packing of ballots, the transporting of ballots and delivering of ballots in the respective constituencies and polling centers, in short ballots should never leave the stakeholders eyes as part of quality control . 8. Most people are very uncomfortable with the news reports indicating that ECZ will be seeking immunity for what if quality delivery is the focus.9. International observers European Union in Zambia, African Union, The Commonwealth already in the country need to facilitate a pre election meeting way ahead of the elections with ECZ and local stakeholders to resolve this contentious issue to the satisfaction of all players and for election integrity purposes Zambia Elections Information Centre . Most people are tired of post election recommendations and want to see pre election\/ pro active measures being taken way ahead of elections.What measures has ECZ put in place to ensure that all Local Stakeholders are confident of the electoral process from start to finish?<br \/>\na.

This trend of opposition political parties in Africa accusing the ruling parties of electoral malpractices should be assessed properly.\u201d<\/p>\n<p>The reason why this appears so is that in most African democracies, the constitution of the electoral bodies is overseen or directed by ruling parties in exclusivity, with other parties playing no significant role. Therefore, when personnel in these bodies make decisions that are non-unanimous or appear partisan, it\u2019s natural to assume that they are siding with the ruling party that recruited them in the first place.<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically -->\n\t\t<\/li><!-- #comment-## -->\n\t\t<li class=\"comment odd alt thread-odd thread-alt depth-1\">\n\t\t\t<div id=\"comment-82956\" class=\"comment-article media\">\n <div class=\"comment-author clear-fix\">\n <div class=\"comment-avatar\">\n <img alt='' src='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/61be09336c9fe1dc8dd28231d07bca5c?s=60&d=mm&r=g' srcset='http:\/\/0.gravatar.com\/avatar\/61be09336c9fe1dc8dd28231d07bca5c?s=120&d=mm&r=g 2x' class='avatar avatar-60 photo' height='60' width='60' \/> \n <\/div>\n <span class=\"comment-author-name\">Election Integrity<\/span> \t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"comment-time\"><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2016\/06\/01\/zambias-2016-elections-is-a-disputed-outcome-now-inevitable\/#comment-82956\" class=\"comment-timestamp\">8 June, 2016 at 18:02 <\/a><\/span>\n <span class=\"comment-links\">\n <\/span>\n <\/div><!-- .comment-meta -->\n \n <div class=\"comment-text\">\n \t\t\t\t\n \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t<div class=\"comment-content\">\n \t\t\t\t\t<p>1991 and 2011 won the confidence of local stakeholders.<br \/>\n 1996 elections <a href=\"https:\/\/www.hrw.org\/reports\/1997\/zambia\/Zambia-01.htm\" rel=\"nofollow\">https:\/\/www.hrw.org\/reports\/1997\/zambia\/Zambia-01.htm<\/a> and<br \/>\n<a href=\"http:\/\/www.nytimes.com\/1996\/11\/21\/world\/president-is-re-elected-in-zambia-but-vote-is-called-tainted.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">http:\/\/www.nytimes.com\/1996\/11\/21\/world\/president-is-re-elected-in-zambia-but-vote-is-called-tainted.html<\/a><br \/>\n2001 and 2006 elections <a href=\"http:\/\/gndhlovu.blogspot.com\/2008\/10\/when-did-rigging-start.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">http:\/\/gndhlovu.blogspot.com\/2008\/10\/when-did-rigging-start.html<\/a><br \/>\n 2008 election results <a href=\"https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=3Kh35NAziUw\" rel=\"nofollow\">https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=3Kh35NAziUw<\/a> and <a href=\"http:\/\/archive.boston.com\/news\/world\/africa\/articles\/2008\/11\/02\/zambian_opposition_leader_charges_vote_rigging_in_tight_election\/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http:\/\/archive.boston.com\/news\/world\/africa\/articles\/2008\/11\/02\/zambian_opposition_leader_charges_vote_rigging_in_tight_election\/<\/a><br \/>\n2.

The 59-year-old lawyer obtained 48.3% of the 1,671,662 total votes cast, ahead of Hichilema who polled 46.7% and the nine other opposition leaders who shared the remaining 5%.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"77\">Out of Zambia’s ten provinces, Lungu won six: Eastern, his home area; the five provinces from which the populist and Bemba-speaking Sata drew most of his support; Lusaka, the capital; Copperbelt; and three Bemba-speaking rural communities of Luapula, Muchinga and Northern provinces. In addition to Southern province, where he comes from, Hichilema secured the neighbouring Western, North-Western and Central provinces. At 32%, the national voter turnout was the lowest recorded for a presidential election in Zambia’s history.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"69\">Since his ascension to power, Lungu has presided over a deteriorating economy beset by falling copper prices, a crippling energy crisis that has badly affected production, a 60% depreciation of the Kwacha against major convertible currencies since January, a sharp increase in inflation (from 7% in January to 19.5% in November), and a budget deficit of 8% of GDP (relative to the 4.6% originally projected in the 2015 budget).<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"52\">It may be too early to predict the outcome of the 2016 polls, which, if Lungu assents to the recently passed Constitution of Zambia Bill, will be held on 11 August. But what is certain is that this gloomy economic picture threatens to undermine Lungu’s electoral prospects and has heightened Hichilema’s hopes.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"61\">In an attempt to divert public discussion from its lack of fiscal and monetary discipline and excessive public extravagance, the government has blamed the economic challenges on adverse climatic conditions like poor rainfall and on external factors such as the slowing of the Chinese economy. For its part, the opposition has dismissed the government’s explanations and accused Lungu of lacking competence.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"101\">In October, the President sought divine intervention when he declared a Day of National Prayer and asked Zambians to lobby God for solutions. A successful business magnate, Hichilema is now trying to position himself and his party as Zambia’s saviour – though he has yet to offer any clear plans as to how he would rescue the collapsing economy. Considering his extremely narrow defeat in January 2015, the UPND leader has, in the last few weeks, talked up his chances of unseating the incumbent in 2016. But can he really do so? Four major factors are likely to determine the outcome.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"5\"><strong>The impact of urban unrest<\/strong><\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"58\">The collapse of copper prices and critical power shortages have led to about 8,000 mining job losses on the influential Copperbelt, worsening the already soaring national unemployment rate. The impact has been instant. On 2 December, close to 200 discharged miners rioted in Chingola in protest against the layoffs, their reduced retrenchment packages and the government’s lacklustre response.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"46\">State police used tear gas and force to disperse and arrest the demonstrators and other Copperbelt residents remonstrating against the high cost of living and chanting anti-PF slogans. A few days later, disaffected miners held similar protests in the other mining towns of Kitwe and Mufulira.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"55\">There is consensus in the global mining industry that the price of copper, which accounts for 70% of Zambia’s export earnings, may remain low for a considerable time, unless unforeseen factors alter this adverse outlook. This means the country’s bleak economic position may be prolonged, and that the rising urban unrest is set to intensify.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"41\">The flashpoints are likely to spread to other urban centres such as Ndola on the Copperbelt and Lusaka, where the escalating prices of essential commodities and a recent 70% hike in electricity tariffs amidst daily power outages have triggered public outrage.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"103\">Of particular concern to Lungu is that the Copperbelt and Lusaka together contributed nearly half (47%) of his national tally as he secured 71% of the presidential vote on the Copperbelt and 61% in the capital. Any slump in his support in these two provinces, relative to any success Hichilema has in identifying himself with popular protests and marshaling the support of disgruntled social groups, will almost certainly deal a fatal blow to President Lungu’s re-election chances. In other words, what Hichilema needs to secure the presidency is to win his main constituencies with huge margins and closely trail Lungu in PF strongholds.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"7\"><strong>Turnout and over a million new voters<\/strong><\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"43\">On 9 December 2015, the Electoral Commission of Zambia announced that it had added 1.4 million new voters, mostly youth, to the national electoral roll. Since the voter registration exercise is set to continue until March 2016, this number is likely to rise.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"58\">In view of the fact that young people are the hardest hit by unemployment and the general economic woes, with the country’s youth dependency ratio officially standing at 91.3%, the majority of them are likely to vote on economic concerns rather than ethnic or party considerations. Given Lungu’s dismal record on the economy, such a scenario favours Hichilema.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"72\">One of the important features of the 2015 poll was that voter turnout, on average, was higher in UPND than PF strongholds. Another was that Hichilema, despite accusations of regional inclination, generally fared better in the PF constituencies than Lungu did in UPND bases. If both trends are repeated in 2016, Lungu, who will not have the benefit of a Sata sympathy vote at the next polls, may be in serious trouble.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"59\">These variables suggest that the next election is Hichilema’s to lose. However, given the political ineptitude of the UPND campaign strategy which, in an effort to improve the party’s performance in PF’s Bemba-speaking strongholds, prioritises the recruitment of tokenist ‘ethnic big men and women’ rather than grassroots mobilisation and the establishment of local structures, he might just manage it.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"7\"><strong>Constitutional reform: an incentive for electoral alliances?<\/strong><\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"46\">Historically, opposition electoral alliances in Zambia have been fraught with challenges owing mainly to the unwillingness of competing political figures to forego individual presidential ambitions and support their colleagues. In the 2015 presidential by-election, for instance, the aggregate vote for opposition parties exceeded the ruling PF’s.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"53\">Had the main opposition parties developed a more positive political programme than a mere dislike of the PF and forged an electoral alliance similar to the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), the broad coalition that defeated founding President Kenneth Kaunda and his nationalist United National Independence Party in 1991, Lungu would have lost.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"45\">One factor that partly explains the failure of past opposition electoral alliances has been the lack of constitutional backing for collaboration, prompting mistrust among potential partners that the winning candidate may not honour pre-election deals. However, this situation will change ahead of the 2016 polls.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"64\">In early December, the PF took to Parliament the Constitution of Zambia Bill, which contains popular clauses such as the requirement that a winning presidential candidate should secure a minimum of “50 per cent + 1” and that the Vice-President should be elected alongside the President. The proposed legislation was passed and when it becomes law, it could change the political landscape quite radically.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"32\">As neither Lungu nor Hichilema enjoy outright national support, it is likely that party coalitions in the first or second round of the presidential elections will be needed to determine a winner.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"49\">In such a scenario, if the opposition were to unite behind Hichilema’s candidature, Lungu’s defeat would be a foregone conclusion. But this eventuality is far from certain, owing mainly to serious divisions within the rapidly disintegrating MMD, whose 20-year stay in power was terminated by Sata’s PF in 2011.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"66\">Going into the 2015 poll, the former ruling party split into three factions. One group backed party president Nevers Mumba, while another, comprising several MPs including the relatively influential Felix Mutati, whom Mumba had defeated for the MMD leadership, endorsed Hichilema. The third faction, led by former Republican and MMD president Rupiah Banda who made a dramatic return to active politics after Sata’s death, supported Lungu.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"40\">Banda, who hails from the same language group and province as Lungu, endorsed the PF candidate after the Supreme Court thwarted his attempt to oust Mumba from the leadership of the MMD and install himself as the party’s presidential nominee.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"75\">In protest against the court ruling, he abandoned the MMD and urged his supporters to vote for the very ruling party candidate whom he had earlier sought to challenge. The net result of this factionalism was the fragmentation of the MMD vote, which went in three directions, with Mumba commanding almost nothing. In comparison to the 35.6% support that Banda received in the 2011 presidential election, Mumba managed to secure only 0.8% four years later.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"76\">What this context underlines is the illusory nature of the support that both Hichilema and Lungu received in the 2015 presidential election, since it may well have been dependent on what would normally have been MMD votes as well as on traditional UPND and PF votes. Now that the Constitution may force political parties to forge electoral alliances in order to succeed, the MMD vote is likely to be the lurking factor at the next polls.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"59\">If Lungu signs the proposed Constitution into law, Hichilema’s chances may therefore be affected by whether he will be facing an MMD-PF coalition (either formally or in some sort of loose alliance). If the vote on the Constitutional Bill, which saw PF and MMD MPs voting together, is anything to go by, the answer may be in the affirmative.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"42\">In fact, there is already growing talk that MMD’s Mutati may support Lungu at the next polls, either in his own right or, if his reported bid to oust Mumba from the party leadership succeeds, with the organisational backing of the party.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"74\">If Mutati, who is said to have support from the Copperbelt and Bemba-speaking regions, is chosen as Lungu’s running mate or, as MMD leader, enters into an alliance with PF, he may hurt the electoral prospects of Hichilema, who is seen by some outside his party bases as leading an anti-Bemba political movement. (The Bemba-speaking language group is the largest in Zambia, accounting for 41% of the nation’s population according to the 2010 census.)<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"42\">How the MMD’s internal politics unfold over the next few months will thus have an important and perhaps decisive bearing on the election. If Hichilema manages to persuade all influential opposition figures, including Mutati, to support him, political turnover may be achieved.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"7\"><strong>The role of a critical free press<\/strong><\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"45\">One of the main platforms of opposition voices and dissent since the reintroduction of multiparty politics in the early 1990s has been The Post, a newspaper that made its name exposing government excesses and corrupt deals, promoting a free press, and fostering transparency and accountability.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"75\">Over the last few months, the daily publication has played an important role in covering the unfolding social unrest on the Copperbelt. This has effectively highlighted the underperformance of Lungu and raised public consciousness of people’s struggles and their desire for political change. With its national presence and capacity to affect public opinion, The Post’s critical portrayal of Lungu has unleashed a noticeable backlash against him and earned it the ire of the governing authorities.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"36\">For instance, in September, Lungu made ill-advised comments that amounted to a death threat to the newspaper’s editor-in-chief, Fred M’membe, a few days before unknown assailants fired a bullet from an AK-47 into the publication’s newsroom.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"22\">The following month, the government attempted to shut down the critical tabloid on tax-related claims, but the High Court halted the move.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"52\">More recently, on 10 December, a combined team of armed state police, intelligence officers and revenue collectors raided The Post’s head office over alleged tax evasion and went away with company computers and documents. Again, the High Court declared the move illegal and ordered the revenue authority to return the seized items.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"49\">Critics point to these developments as evidence of Lungu’s growing desperation and fears that The Post may damage his re-election chances. Conclusions that the ruling authorities are simply out to either paralyse the operations of the newspaper or close it altogether are hard to dismiss for two main reasons.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"63\">First, several PF-aligned publications and other companies that owe the revenue authority huge debts in tax revenue have not been treated in a similar way. Second, senior government officials, including Lungu and the Minister of Information, have previously threatened to shut down the tabloid for its critical positions against the establishment, reinforcing perceptions that the revenue authority’s actions against it are politically motivated.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"63\">If the government succeeds in closing the only established and credible platform for opposition parties, it would strike a serious blow to their electoral chances and underline Lungu’s increasing authoritarianism and intolerance of dissent. Conversely, the prospects for an opposition victory are high if The Post remains in operation, as the disenchantment arising from an informed public may work against the governing party.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"3\"><strong>A two-horse race<\/strong><\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"30\">Given the absence of credible opinion polls and the considerable time remaining before the elections, any prediction concerning the 2016 polls should be regarded as tentative and treated with caution.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"78\">But what is almost certain for now is that unless other opposition parties such as Edith Nawakwi’s Forum for Democracy and Development or Wynter Kabimba’s Rainbow gain momentum and emerge as viable alternatives, the 2016 presidential elections will be a race between Lungu and Hichilema – a tragic choice between the economically-incompetent PF and the increasingly populist UPND, whose leader spent the January campaign promising free education, free fertiliser and almost every budget-busting proposal he could think of.<\/p>\n<p class=\"story-body-text\" data-para-word-count=\"15\"><strong>Sishuwa Sishuwa is a Zambian scholar and political analyst based at the University of Oxford.<\/strong><\/p>\n <\/div><!-- end article content --> \n <!-- TAGS -->\n <!-- NAV -->\n \n <div class=\"s-post-nav clearfix\"><div class=\"nav-btn nav-prev\"><div class=\"nav-title clearfix\"><span class=\"icon\"><i class=\"fa fa-long-arrow-left\"><\/i><\/span><span>Previous Article<\/span><h3><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2015\/12\/14\/beyond-the-poverty-of-poverty-reduction-the-case-of-cotton\/\">Beyond the poverty of poverty reduction: the ...<\/a><\/h3><\/div><\/div><div class=\"nav-btn nav-next\"><div class=\"nav-title clearfix\"><span class=\"icon\"><i class=\"fa fa-long-arrow-right\"><\/i><\/span><span>Next Article<\/span><h3><a href=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2015\/12\/15\/un-peacekeepers-in-south-sudan-protecting-some-of-the-people-some-of-the-time\/\">UN peacekeepers in South Sudan: protecting some ...<\/a><\/h3><\/div><\/div><\/div> <!-- SHARE BOX -->\n \n <div class=\"share-box-wrap\"><div class=\"share-box\"><div class=\"share-total-wrap\"><div class=\"share-total\"><div class=\"share-total__value\">0<\/div><div class=\"share-total__title\">Shares<\/div><\/div><\/div><!-- End share-total-wrap --><ul class=\"social-share\"><li id=\"facebook\" class=\"bk-share bk_facebook_share\" data-url=\"http:\/\/africanarguments.org\/2015\/12\/15\/can-zambias-opposition-unseat-president-lungu-in-the-2016-elections\/\" data-text=\"Can Zambia’s opposition unseat President Lungu in the 2016 elections?\" data-title=\"Like\"><div class=\"share-item__icon\"><a onClick=\"window.open('http:\/\/www.facebook.com\/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fafricanarguments.org%2F2015%2F12%2F15%2Fcan-zambias-opposition-unseat-president-lungu-in-the-2016-elections%2F','Facebook','width=600,height=300,left='+(screen.availWidth\/2-300)+',top='+(screen.availHeight\/2-150)+'');

\t\t\t\t\t<p>Good but full of theory. Remember it is still very difficult to ascertain why people really vote the way they do. Statements like “conversely, the prospects for an opposition victory are high if The Post remains in operation, as the disenchantment arising from an informed public may work against the governing party” misses the point. How many Zambians read newspapers? How do we read causality in journalistic frames vs an individual decision in a polling booth?<\/p>\n \t\t\t\t<\/div>\n <\/div>\n\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t<!-- <\/li> is added by WordPress automatically
