In an article published on their Facebook page, Smart Eagles claimed that the large number of petitions on the results of the August 12th General Elections have put President Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND victory under self-sabotage, and question the integrity of various election observer missions. According to Smart Eagles, petitioning raised questions on the integrity of the African Union Election Observation Mission, the European Union Election Observation Mission, the Commonwealth Observers, the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) observers and the rest who declared the elections free and fair. They add that because of the integrity of these organizations, Zambia has UPND as a ruling party today and because of the integrity of these organizations, the former President opted not to pursue his claim that the August 12 election was not free and fair. In their report, Smart Eagles claim that hearing that over half of the total number of MPs have petitioned the outcome of the just ended election in Zambia will negatively change the world perception of Zambia democracy and discourage investors. The claim by the Smart Eagles has led to speculations involving misinformation that has the potential to cause many Zambians to lose confidence in the constitutional processes and credibility of international organizations election observer organizations.
