ECZ to start announcing results mid morning

The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) may start announcing some results around 10 hours today, Friday 12 August 2016.

Counting is still going on in almost all constituencies and in Chingola constituency of the Copperbelt, 16 out of the 79 polling stations that had been counted by 06 hours this morning, president Edgar Lungu and UPND candidate Hakainde Hichilema were neck to neck.

Unofficial results show that Lungu had 1, 444 while Hichilema had 1, 430.
Note that these are not official results as in being announced by the ECZ but the figures are correct.

This is despite the overnight and ongoing attempts by the PF using various teams with the most lethal being led by Emmanuel Mwamba to manipulate the polls.
The Watchdog once more advises the UPND and other monitors to keep an eye on what Emmanuel Mwamba is doing.
