Electoral Commission is up-to no good


By Maiko Zulu

The recent announcement by ECZ to scrap the existing voter’s register and have eligible voters register afresh in a space on one month should be resisted by well meaning citizens.

This is the same ECZ that said it will nt fund observers during the printing of ballot papers in Dubai and the same ECZ that complains of not performing to expectation because of being underfunded. One month to register 9 million potential voters in the Covid 19 times is a suicide undertaking. Remember, the current 6 million Voter’s Register started in 2005 so what magic is ECZ going to use to register 9 million voters in one month? Unless they will use the 48 houses formula.

It is most certain that ECZ is playing to someone’s political gallery and while people maybe thinking that election rigging is done during voting, citizens need to realise that if not watched, ECZ has the potential of becoming the motherboard of a systematic rigging machinery. We have already seen how the National Registration Cards issuance is becoming major source of concern for voters in certain areas and as stated before, Zambians should not go to sleep while our institutions are being hijacked in criminal fashion by criminal elements.

Can we stop this nonsense already!

    Be warned. Not to cry later. Unless the opposition and stakeholders put a demand on ECZ, we will cry. ECZ has devised a scheme to rig elections. Do not even doubt or be fooled. The method used to register voters and vote is not transparent. ECZ is behaving like a headmaster to scare stakeholders in support of PF. Be warned. Malawians put pressure on Electoral Commission staff to resign and they resigned. Chulu and Nshindano should leave ECZ. People should demand their departure.

    Oga, stop that nonsense of the military taking power. The only people who love military coups are in fact those who hv never lived under a military dictatorship. Even in a country that has seen a military coup, it’s the young who celebrate military coups. Older people who have seen a military dictatorship know what it is and do not celebrate.

    The opposition has been too relaxed & concentrated on issues of self extinct, leaving the PF laughing at Sean Tembo for attacking his own warriors in a battle!!! Ba Tembo, that kind of immaturity will make u stand 10 times & Zambians shall NEVER vote for u. Rise up opposition & sustain your opposition to whatever is seriously wrong. PF has an easy time..
