JOHN SANGWA PETITION ON ECZ TO INCLUDE ON THE PRESIDENTIAL/RUNNING MATE NOMINATION FORM THE PROVISIONS THAT DEMANDS ONE TO ANSWER WHETHER OR NOT HAS SERVED AS PRESIDENT OR PRESIDENT TWICE IS LONG OVER DUE

The reported petition against the ECZ over the Presidential/running mate Nomination form by State Counsel John Sangwa is move in the right direction.

This is an excellent move by Counsel John Sangwa to petition the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to amend the Presidential/RUNNING MATE Nomination with the words contained and proposed in the petition.

I raised this issue in the past interrogating why the ECZ would conveniently gloss over a disqualification contained in Article 106(3) for a president and Article 111(3) for a running mate.

And why should ECZ only want to concentrate on the disqualifications contained in Art 100 leaving out that in Article 106(3) for the president and Art 111(3) for RUNNING MATE/ vice-president?

THE Deliberate voiding of such disqualification on the Nomination form by the ECZ is a deliberate ploy to allow someone at all odds to contest or make his/her eligibility an uncontested.

Sangwa says these words were removed in the new affidavit

It will not leave someone or two people wanting to contest the Election despite the constitution clear on their ineligibility once that is taken on board by the ECZ.

This one is a straight catch and a disqualification for Bo ECL and Bo Inonge Wina…

There is no way ECZ can gloss over such visible disqualification in the Presidential/running mate nomination form unless ECZ is also an accomplice in defrauding the constitution and deliberately abroagating and violating it with impunity.

The constitutional Court didn’t void the provision of art 106(3) and 111(3) that demand that anyone who has served TWICE AS PRESIDENT and TWICE AS VICE PRESIDENT are not eligible to contest as President and running mate respectively.

These two provisions of disqualification to the office of President and vice-president in the constitution are intact basa.

Let us abide by the constitution and defend it from organised abroagation and violation kwamana. We know power is sweet but the law is law when it is time just leave.

  1. ZAMBIANS PLEASE ALL WELL MEANINGFUL LAWYERS, PLEASE TEAM UP AND DEFEND OUR PRIDE ZAMBIAN CONSTITUTION BY JOINING HANDS WITH SC JOHN SANGWA AND KB FUBE LEST OUR COUNTRY WILL BE THROWN OUT TO THE WALL BY PF.

    MULILO WAYAKA, KESI KANABUCHUKI, MOTO WAYAKA, KAKAHYA KANAKWATE, LET US ALL RISE UP AND SEE THAT JUSTICE PREVAILS OR ELSE WE ARE DOOMED. THREATS BY PF LAWYERS MUST COME TO AN END IN COURTS OF LAW THAN JUST SAYING IT IS TREASON. LAW DOES NOT ARREST ANYONE BUT AN OFFENDER AND ONE MUST BE TRIED PERIOD.

  2. Holding office twice in itself is ambiguous.It is like someone saying they passed the examination and end there.The question will still be asked which exam?
    The question in holding office should be the length or period covered by the twice held office.Fortunately, the constitution answers this direma by specifying that a period or term to be not less than THREE YEARS with a maximum of FIVE YEARS.

  3. Charles, the wording Sangwa is focusing on is not “sworn in twice” not held office twice. There is no ambiguity in having or not having been SWORN in twice. That is why it was targeted and removed by Lungu via ECL. This is an act of treason by Lungu, a bloodless coup, an overthrowing of the constitution. And we will not stand idly by as you and your kind commit treason.

  4. Great move but question is why is this being petitioned at the eleventh hour ? Was the affidavit form only recently amended or what ? It’s doubtful if there is enough time for petition to be heard and ECZ compelled to make the amendment.

  5. Charles, u are making no sense at all. Wasn’t Edgar Lungu elected in 2015? Wasn’t Edgar Lungu elected again in 2016? The answer is yes to both questions. He has therefore been elected twice. It’s about having been elected twice and not having served whatever period in the office of president.

  6. Charles, you need to gather self-confidence and recognize that Edgar was not born president and there are others who can take the mantle of leading Zambia. Don’t make Edgar a god, which most of you with no self-esteem will always want to do. What have you stolen, that you want Edgar to protect you as president? Suffice to say that ECZ has no right to change the constitution.

    Edgar might look humble, but he is a failure and a crook. He is using Esau Chulu, a disgraced criminal, to do for him what the ignorant Davis Mwila helped him do at their so-called convention that wasn’t a convention. To hell with you crooks.

    The problem Zambia has, is trying to have dialogue and reason with crooks like pfools.

  7. Ubuchenjeshi bwa Nkoko … Kikikiki
    If Concourt declared someone clean to stand, why is ECZ tampering with Affidavit forms now?
    Someone will go kujele for Treason on this one.
    You may commit the crime now but your time of reckoning will come no matter how long it may take.
    What is so difficult in doing the right thing?
