    Job well done

    • Hammer

      Zambia is an example of democracy. The problem is that when opposition loses they cry rigging but when they win it is alright . Keep up ECL for upholding our democratic values and congratulations to the new MP ,

      • Martin Mulenga

        Why suspending Mine operations in Roan ,think twice , there’s no poverty.

    • Chilankalipa

      Let the masquerades go back to Roan with their foolish choir members masquerading as musicians and dance to their embarrassing wallop. Surely the entire masquerade shifting camp to Roan only to be walloped by one man? Awe ca nsoni sana, nici fye ku Bahati ni ku mushi, na ignorance.

      Davies Mwila offered to resign and we are waiting for his resignation not aya amasushi alenya ati he will strategize, yalenunka. The entire group of masquerades should be ashamed that after wasting tax payers’ money in millions babwelako naya lya yene baile nayo mu matoloshi. Do you think you can fool bakopala like you fooled baka mushi ku Bahati? Copperbelt tamwakaimone na kabili nangu mukapele blue, yellow or green mountain takuli mwacilamo bu kabwalala bangwele.

  7. Akapenya-Mushi.

    I told Ba PF/Nathan Chandra How do you Adopt DC Joe chibuye,a man not known by a common man in Roan Leaving Kanselas pipo like JB “ulubala”out of greedy Chandra went a heard to mislead the pf and the president by adopting his unpopular friend Joe chibuye.Pf intelligent wing you didn’t do your work well Leaving out Councillors has coated you. A DC is never with pipo he is always in office, councillors, suffers with pipo so they are known and popular. Lesson #1!!never use greedy.Akapenya-Mushi

  8. Hev rena

    Let the opposition alliance continue with same strategy till 2021,twacula pafula 90 days is long gone but no money in sight!

    Once the Copperbelt begins to move to the opposition, then the ruling party should know things are not going well and it is headed for a huge defeat in the general elections. The win of the Roan seat by the NDC is the beginning of the unraveling of the ruling PF. The President and his entire cabinet camped in Roan at great expense and at a time when employees of public universities, RTSA, ZRA and others have not yet been paid. The insensitivity of the PF government to the plight of so many Zambians was bound at one time or the other to bringing them this electoral defeat to help them begin to seriously reflect on how they have been taking Zambian people for granted. The loss of the Roan seat to NDC is a well-deserved to the PF. BATUCHUSHA BAMAMBALA!!!

  13. My opinion

    So that DC who was ushered in dubious on a back door by Chandra Nathan, abandoning his councillors,,is he going to be on a payroll since he resigned? Filya tabacita!!!!

This is the beginning, come 2021 people will cry. NDC keep it up together with your ALLIANCE PARTNERS by-by!

    Even in Ndola Central NDC can scoop the seat if elections were held today.The Town Clerk and Ndola mayor are busy grabbing land from people who have been on the land for more than 40years in Dola Hill.

  24. Fact

    History just repeating itself, the uprising from roan mine is want led to our independence in Zambia… enough is enough, honestly does PF have any vision for this country? This is a signal for what to come in 2021…

  25. fruits

  27. fruits

    It is people,s choice so respect ba ck so your comments should be in line us zambian is called a Christian nation

  28. Lisa

    Had Kalaba defended his seat, he would have increased the opposition number in parliament, but lacks vision & thinks he can win alone. Pf is a violent party and needs a very strong opposition force to defeat it.

  29. man cool

    Let us understand why we are voting for and were we are heading too.Be visualize as you live in this world.

  30. Mpombo

    The loss of the Roam seat should not come as a surprise to PF the reasons are main first and foremost it is a protest vote against the perceived persecution of Imbwili considering what he put in during the general election The intrigue to this was the mystery surrounding his case making people to conclude it was nothing more than victimization The other reason being that CB produced two independent Mps in the the previous general election means individuals may win elections not parties the last reason may be the personal battles between Nathan Chanda and Imbwili This favoured Imbwili who has cast himself as a man of the people being a populist he knows how to exploit the media when ever the government pounces on him Going foward people may not vote an Mp from the same party as their preferred presidential candidate like what happened with the independent Mps The purpose of the 50+1 clause was specifically meant to curtail people like Hechi Hechi to win in the first round so the excitement generated by this win by our southern counterparts maybe short lived in a general election as this may backfire and galvanize the other people to mobilize and move in for the kill as this universal celebration may smack of something sinister The PF should now adopt populist agendas going foward closing of universities shouldn’t be among them late salaries and astronomical cost of livings should be curtailed

  31. DAVIS

  35. Akapenya-Mushi.

    Akapenya-mushi: Mpombo you are correct! Too much greedy in PF authorities thru Chandra Nathan misled the party. DC was never voted for both at district and constituency level but he was ushered in by his friend Chandra Nathan leaving the popular councillors. Nomba mwamona filya tabacita.Congrats U mumbwili and NDC party, to Mr Joe chibuye Had lucky.

  42. Vic Amedious

    I can’t see the number of votes for UPND candidate

    • Okay

      They made a pact with NDC…in bahati there stood n failed there was no pact there…

      • sam80

        Ba Okay Luapula moves with Copperbelt..Most of the people from Luapula do their trading from Copperbelt especially in Kitwe.Very soon bwana PF will is lose Luapula to NDC if they are not careful.. Do ur analysis properly.

  43. Okay

    For NDC to beat PF they had to mix up with upnd thus y there was no UPND candidate

  44. Southerners

    Congratulations to the people of Roan and NDC well done job continue with the same spirit,Dr Ck is a senior politician thx.

  45. Mr. K

    The opposition alliance has only worked in. Roan constituency and iteshitesh ward not in chavuma kabwe mansa mungwi muchinga wards and has also failed in kafue council chairperson and bahati so hakainde has only won iteshiteshi ward what ashame

  46. lincoln

    pf Tuleya tulekula Kaa kaa kaa kaa

  47. Dotkubemba

    Now NDC has scooped ROAN seat why this so called pf PF GS Mr Davies c Mwila not resigning from the pf party because he made a promise himself to everyone 😂

  48. MAMBO TEMBO

    My analysis of the current Zambian politics clearly shows where we are are going. Politics and its analysis calls for strategic thinking and not mere hallucination. Intimidation has no space in this era and age. Roan has demonstrated it. Those who want to trivialize the outcome will all have it wrong. CK is not a small force on the Copperbelt whether you choose to use hurt against him or mere lack of faith in him. The man is a force worth reckoning. As a realist, the 2016 PF victory on the CB, CK had a super contribution towards that victory. The man worked so hard, restlessly. PF must strategise and listen to the people on the ground

  49. Ck

    Mambo tembo wel spoken. Imbwili yabasuma ba pf

  50. The Artillery

    Kambwili has wired, hammered,tortured, slaughtered and butchered the entire PF.Congrates ba NDC

  51. Sibweni

    Pipo preparin 2 contest on roan seat caused pf 2 loss election 2 increase chances of general election in 2021. Luanshaya mayor body language was not campaign bcoz his where bcomin little if pf candidate had own. Ba kambwili cases made pipo 2 develop sympath 4 him and was seen has a victim to votes but come 2021 is difficult. Is chileshe NDC Accept 2 share allowances with Ba kambwili,we wait. Pf time 2 seach 4 candidate.

  52. Kelvin Maseka heavenly showerz

    Kambwili is the best man who knows all the pf strategies over electorates so just wait and see what is going to happen in 2021 general elections.

    congratulations indeed ba NDC

  56. CM

    Pf as the party has no problem, but top leadership .My advice to pf leadership is that go back to ck and guy scot plead for them and reinstate them tapaba nsoni this how downfall starts

  57. CONCERNED CITIZEN

    MPOMBO is very right pf should know that kambwili is not a push over on the copper belt .Am a strong supporter of pf . so its never too late work hard on grass root mobilization of the party. GS work hard . As for mr kambwili congratulations you remind me of the late sata .thats the way to go.Mr kambwili you can do it alone dont work with HH he is a sadist.Look at what he did to mr sata ,he pulled out of the pact when he was needed the most.He broke the hearts of most zambians including myself. kambwili you are well able .But dont do politics with hatred.You are great man .

  58. THE GREAT

    Honestly speaking if upnd contested the roan sit they would have lost. We dont like HH here but we do like pf .Kambwili and NDC have managed to win because of the contributions that he has made to Luashya.He is a good man.AS for HH he is a sadist always wanting to cause pain to people.

  59. Chimwejo

    Thax the people of Roan & Dr CK,imbwili ni imbwili may Almighty God of Peace, Love,Joy & Justice bless both Roan people & CK,Amen.

  60. Sibweni

    Roan seat is a limus paper 4 new pf provincal chairman and his executive. Roan has made ba kambwili popular and due 2 MCC Decision 2 pick pipo out of equation 2 b the answer leavin real valueables.

  61. Nimrod

    NDC can go a long way and form govt, but the mistake that Kambwili can make is to bring hh near him. Like what others have said, hh is a sadist, Kambwili just go it alone you will see, but you reglet if you accept to be vice to hh, knowing that he just want people to use to climb. BA GBM will be easily dumped and try to use imbwili. You are a young cobra we know. Go,go! Next president CK

  62. Kings

    Now I Can Eat And Drink Comfortably Because My Atomic Bomb Has Worked, Kambwili Is The Atomic Bomb For Kopala Where Campeigning Is Concerned, Even Bashi Tasila Knows Him Very Well That He Is Our Man On The Copperbelt. This Indicates That We Have Changed Camps, No More With You Bashi Tasila, We Want Change. Ck Helped You To Be Where You Are But You Don’t Appreciate Bashi Tasila, Ck Is Really The Cobra According To Some People, He Has Demonstrated To You What He Will Do To You Come 2021, Tewakubelesha. Congraturations People Of Roan For Your Wisdom And Hard Work, You Really Care, God Bless You All For Being With Ck In Hard Time, You Deserve Respect. Kikikikikikikikiki, The Whole Pf Cabinet Against Ck, But Beaten. Where Are You Mwaice Nathan Chanda, Ba Lusambo, Kaizer Zulu, All Gone To Bed. Wait And See NDC And Its Suporters Show You What They Can Do, Come 2021, Wina Azalila.

    • Doubt Katwishi

      I agree with you Mulobezi, NDC may be popular in roan but not the entire luanshya, later on the entire CB. To say you are a presidential material after winning one single seat is far fetched.Having said that I will still congratulate them for winning.

      • Bana Simon

        What I like about NDC is that they are not tribal. I am not happy that they won but it would have been worse if was the tribal party that won.I agree if the tribal party contested in roan they would have lost. Congratulations NDC

        • Mapesho

          NIMROD, you are right Kambwili should not make a mistake of going near HH. HH has become irrelevant. This can be shown from the number of seats he has worn from the last elections we have had.
