The delay was so that the results can be cooked. In the last elections to replace Sata this Lungu fellow crossed the border to meet Bob to find out how the rigging machinery operates.

Lungu quickly learnt the rigging ropes from his southern neighbour.

Unfortunately, Zambians are the most passive Africans and will continue to be kept in the dark ages because of that. Banda, Museveni and Mugabe has taught lungu well and if Zambians remain passive they will be ruled for many years by a tyrant.

The AU is nothing but a bunch of rubber stampers. How can you get a corrupt Nigerian to monitor elections? Shame on the UN Secretary General as well.
