Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) Chairperson Ireen Mambilimba this morning took strong exception and castigated politicians that are threatening her staff with dismissals if the did not cooperate.
Accredited Zambia Watchdog reporters at the Mulungushi Conference Center can reveal that some of the politicians Madam Mambilimba referred to are Ministers Nkandu Luo, and Jean Kapata.
The two ministers went to the ECZ tallying center at Mulungushi Conference Center in the early hours of this morning and threatened the ECZ personnel with dismissals immediately PF wins.
Luo has also vowed to have Ireen Mambilimba fired once Lungu wins for refusing to cooperate with PF in manipulation of results.
And the PF officials across the country have also been threatening ECZ returning officers who are mainly council officials and civil servants such as teachers to fully cooperate or be dismissed.
As a result, some of the staff in the computer room at ECZ tallying centers across the country and at Mulungushi Conference Centre are now changing and manipulation results in favour of Lungu the PF candidate.
Other than adding figures on the results certificates, some ECZ officials are now interchanging results as well as getting those results that belong to political parties such as UNIP, FDD, and are adding them to PF.
One incident is the Mambilimba result in Luapula constituency where the results belonging to UNIP have also been added to PF.
Other crooks involved in the scheme to manipulate results are Emmanuel Mwamba and Xaviour Chungu as their PVT has clearly shown them that PF candidate Edgar Lungu will not win this election against UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema with the remaining results.
