    Justice Mambilima cited an incident where a story was broadcast alleging that former ECZ director Dan Kalale was seen at Nakatindi Hall in Lusaka where he was alleged to have been beaten.

    She said the commission has followed this story and found that it is ‘a total fabrication'.

    Meanwhile, Justice Mambilima said the commission has verified 33 constituency results for presidential elections.

    Of the verified results, Patriotic Front president Michael Sata has so far polled 265,843, representing 46.59 perent, followed closely by incumbent President Banda with 192,966 (33.82 percent) and United Party for National Development leader Hakainde Hichilema is in third position with 93,645 (16.41 percent).

    National Restoration Party president Elias Chipimo is on fourth place with 1,833 (0.32 percent), Forum for Democracy and Development president Edith Nawakwi polled 1,631(0.29 percent) followed by Heritage Party president Godfrey Miyanda with 715 votes (0.13 percent).

    The rest are Zambians for Empowerment and Development president Fred Mutesa with 326 (0.06 percent), UNIP's Tilyenji Kaunda with 141(0.25 percent), Alliance for Democracy and Development president Charles Milupi with 941 (0.16 percent) and National Movement for Progress candidate Ng'andu Magande polled 854 votes (0.15 percent).

    The commission has received 37 more constituency results which are still being verified.

    Opposition leader Michael Sata has been declared the winner of Zambia's presidential election, ousting incumbent Rupiah Banda as the leader of Africa's biggest copper producer in polls marred by public violence.

    Chief Justice Ernest Sakala declared Sata the winner early on Friday, after he received 1,150,045 votes compared to Banda's 961,796 with 95.3 per cent of constituencies counted. Sata received 43 per cent of the vote also contested by many minor parties.

    Rupiah Banda, 74 and leader of the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) party that has run Zambia since one-party rule ended in 1991, is expected to make a statement on Friday about the vote.

    Sata supporters spilled into the streets in the capital Lusaka after the announcement, singing and chanting in celebration.

    Youths fought running battles with riot police on Thursday in the towns of Ndola and Kitwe, 250km north of Lusaka, setting fire to vehicles and markets in the normally peaceful southern African country's mining heartland.

    Hackers who hit the Election Commission's website overnight, posting false results showing Sata on course for a landslide, added to the confusion and tension of what was already a tight race between two old rivals.

    Chinese companies have become major players in Zambia's economy, with total investments by the end of 2010 topping $2 billion, according to data from the Chinese embassy.

    But Sata accused Chinese mining firms in the earlier stages of the campaign of creating slave labour conditions with scant regard for safety or the local culture.

    Banda had strong backing in urban areas and the country's economic centre in the Copper Belt.

    Analysts said younger voters also helped propel him to victory with youth using the ballot box to bring about change in a continent that has seen the long-standing rulers of Egypt and Tunisia toppled by mass street protests.

    Sata lost to Banda by just 35,000 votes, or 2 percent of the electorate, in a 2008 presidential run-off triggered by the death in office of Levy Mwanawasa.

    (AP) LUSAKA, Zambia — The chairwoman of the Electoral Commission of Zambia says challenger Michael Sata has defeated the incumbent in presidential elections.

    Irene Mambilima announced early Friday that with tallies completed from nearly all the country's 150 constituencies, Sata had won with 1,150,045 votes, or 43 percent of the total. President Rupiah Banda had 961,796 votes, or 36.1 percent. Eight other candidates shared the remainder.

    Banda's party, of which Sata had been a member until a 2001 leadership dispute, had been in power for two decades.

    THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

    LUSAKA, Zambia (AP) — As a challenger led in Zambia's presidential election, his supporters celebrated, and electoral officials stopped issuing vote tallies Thursday.

    Totals released in the late evening from 116 of 150 constituencies showed Michael Sata with 994,090 votes, or 44.4 percent of ballots counted so far. President Rupiah Banda trailed at 808,596 votes, or 36.11 percent. Eight other candidates split the remainder.

    A promised 10 p.m. briefing from the Electoral Commission of Zambia did not happen. Hours passed, and officials said they were still completing tallies.

    Hundreds of Sata supporters danced and lit celebratory tire bonfires in the streets of the capital late Thursday. The mood was joyous.

    Sata's supporters have rioted after previous losses, and violence has following recent elections elsewhere in Africa.

    Sata, a former provincial governor and Cabinet minister known for his populist, anti-China rhetoric and sharp tongue, left Banda's Movement for Multi-Party Democracy to form his own party in 2001, after he was passed over to lead the MMD in elections.

    He lost elections that year and in 2006 to the MMD's Levy Mwanawasa. In 2008, after Mwanawasa died of a stroke, he lost a special election to Banda, who had been Mwanawasa's vice president. The MMD has led Zambia since 1991.

    Sata is known for his populist, anti-China rhetoric. Friends and foes call Sata, born in 1936, "ba mudala ba Sata," which means "Old man Mr. Sata." He's also known as "ba King Cobra" — Mr. King Cobra, for his famously sharp tongue.

    Director naamini kua umefarijika sababu unajaribu kufananisha Zambia na Tanzania upande wa Siasa hasa nafasi za Vyama pinzani.... What you should take note ni kua hicho Chama ambacho kimepinduliwa (MMD) na hicho Chama kipya katika uongozi cha (PF) ndio chama ambacho katika ufananishaji waweza fananisha na CDM (yaani MMD)....

    For CCM ya Zambia a.k.a UNIP chini ya Raisi Mstaafu K. Kaunda kilishatolewa kwa kishindo 1991... In other words chama ambacho kilikua kimeshika na kusukwa mizizi kama vile CCM ni UNIP.... Hawa MMD ni wachanga na wao kuondelewa ilikua ni rahisi tokana na disappointments toka Kwa Chiliba (malimbikizi ya mali), Kifo cha Mwanawasa - na ukweli kwamba hakuna changes ambazo ni za maana zimekua evident toka Kaunda atoke madarakani..... Hivo basi hawa MMD wapo hapo kwa miaka 20 ikipitiwa na Maraisi watatu.....

    Zambia ni one of the countries ambayo inatupa picha saana nafasi ya Chama kilicho jidhatiti (i.e CCM) nafasi ya vyama pinzani (i.e CDM) na nafasi ya mwananchi.... Hivo as much as Kweli PF wameshinda hio tu ni moja ya processes ya heading to the better but it does not mean better lifes for the majority YET!
