On Tuesday January 20, 2015 Zambians went to the polls and elected their 6th Republican President, H.E. Edgar Chagwa Lungu in what has been dubbed the closest and highly contested election in the history of the nation won by a margin of less than 5%. The election however was without incident; the loosing runner up Hichilema Hakainde has still maintained the election was 'stolen' from him, Southern Province voted overwhelmingly for their preferred candidate as has been reflected in previous elections, CopperBelt province also proved it was still a PF stronghold although HH made some inroads and other related matters. The ZBTR Round Table team consisting Dr Liya Mutale (Lusaka), Apostle Margaret Buter (England), Matilda Mwaba-Lucas (Florida) & Pastor Davies Lombe (Chicago) will reflect and review the following; voting patterns, How does the nation move forward based on what these voting patterns revealed?, Role of the Clergy and traditional rulers in Zambia's political process & H.E Edgar Lungu's presidency. Join us as the panelists' give us broad based views from their regions of the world.
Our special election coverage continues with our correspondents reporting from different parts of the country, for live reports and perspective from those experiencing the events unfolding join us as we talk to Simataa Simataa (Lusaka), Ndubi Mvula (Livingstone) and Mrs Kwendakwema (Mongu)
Zambians went to the polls Tuesday January 20, 2015 to elect the nation's sixth president, reports indicate the mood was characterized by a peaceful, rainy and somewhat not so very good turn out. We join several correspondents from different provinces to give us updates on the results and situations in areas which had a late start to the voting process.
Dr Neo Simutanyi is a political analyst and Excecutive Director at the Center for Policy Dialogue (CPD) an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization dedicated to formulating and promoting alternative public policies based on principles of social justice, limited government, individual freedom and rule of law. The CPD has conducted electoral polls in previous elections including the 2011 elections which they predicted that the then opposition Patriotic Front would carry the day. Dr Simutanyi joins us to discuss his recent pronouncement about the significance and role of Lusaka & Eastern provinces determining the winner of the January 20, 2015 presidential election. He has also maintained that the race still remains between the ruling Patriotic Front and the opposition UPND.
We will also get an update from Mr Cris Akufuna, spokesperson for the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) on their preparedness to conduct this election and of any challenges being faced and the political parties adherence to the electoral code.
The day for the presidential election in Zambia is drawing closer as we get into the month of January, the teams for the leading candidates HH of the UPND & Edgar Lungu's PF return to our popular round table discussion. The message from the HH camp has been that the PF government has failed lamentably and giving another mandate to the ruling party is utter suicide for the nation. On the other hand the Edgar Lungu camp is asking for continuity of their mandate to complete their projects and term which was given to them in the 2011 polls. The team will analyse the dreaded Public Order Act and press freedom, size of cabinet and government expenditure, the highly anticipated people driven constitution, prudent fiscal management and transparent public expenditure, what is the candidates position on domestic investment versus foreign direct investment, is an independent judiciary feasible? Join our round table team as they examine these issues of critical significance to our nation's governance process.
Happy New Year the nation of Zambia will be voting for a new president on January 20, 2015. The race is clearly between Edgar Lungu's ruling paty the Patriotic Front and the opposition presumably leading contender Hakainde Hichilema popularly known as "HH" of the United Party for National Development. It is clear from social media, campaign rallies and media promotions that this is a highly anticipated election which is also being seen as HH's golden opportunity with endorsements coming from all angles and sectors of the community. The Round table discussion hosts the two leading camps to debate and present the case for their candidates. Can HH overturn his poor showing in the 2011 polls in Lusaka, Copperbelt, Luapula, Northern, Copperbelt and Eastern provinces? Will the numerous endorsements from rival party top leadership translate into actual votes? The PF has been riddled with unprecedented divisions for a party going into a presidential election, can they overcome their poor start to the campaign and reclaim their late president's popularity? Does GBM's change of heart to join HH's bandwagon mean anything, whilst Miles Sampa continues to stand on the fence? Join us for our featured comeback round table discussion in the New Year.
Dr Nevers Mumba is president of the embattled Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD), until recently he was on suspension and sidelined as the party presidential candidate in the upcoming polls scheduled for January 20, 2015 after the death of republican president H.E. Micheal Chilufya Sata. Dr Mumba is expected to successfully file for nomination as a presidential candidate on the MMD ticket after the Supreme Court's ruling in his favor. However, a lot of questions and issues surrounding the credibility of the party's ability to win this election need to be answered. A substantial number of National Executive Committee members supported the former president popularly known as "RB" with yet a group of MPs having openly endorsed the supposedly leading contender of this election, UPND president Hichilema Hakainde (HH); what is the next step and way forward for Dr Mumba and his "fragmented" party. Join us for this Saturday evening special feature as Dr Mumba outlines his strategy for his presidency and the MMD.
