HH questions credibility of company printing ballots

United Party for National Development (UPND) Leader Hakainde Hichilema has explained that since there are questions on the printing of ballot,the rigging  of elections has already started.

Hichilema was reacting to claims by former Patriotic Front”s Given Lubinda, who alleged that Universal Printing Group (UPG),a South African Company engaged to print ballot papers for Zambia is involved in corrupt practices with officials from the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ).

He said it it will be so sad if the accusations are factual as hopes for free and fair elections will be completely shattered as chances of the election material being tempered with are high.

The UPND President also said for peace to prevail during elections, the polls must be free and fair because any suspicion could lead to violence and loss of lives.
