The Patriotic Front (PF) has taken the returning officer in the just ended Mangango by-elections to North Western Province to teach other election officials on how to rig elections.
A source has told the Zambian Watchdog that the PF has taken Mr. Kingsly Mtayachalo to Solwezi.
Mtayachalo was on Saturday in Zambezi West and today (Sunday) was is Solwezi.
” It is like this man has been taught how to rig elections and he is now teaching others,” the source said.
Meanwhile, a senior Civil Servant in Western Province has disclosed that the PF in the just ended by-elections gave each voter K100 and transported them to polling stations.
The villagers who received money were further cheated that government had hidden cameras in voting booths and they would know who voted for who.
” What happened is that the PF were transporting voters to polling stations and whoever jumped into their vehicles was given K100 and that is a lot of money for villagers,” the source said.
Other villagers especially former refugees from Angola were warned that should they vote against government they would be deported to their country. On the other hand, they were promised citizenships if they voted for the ruling party.
These are the same rigging methods the MMD were using in Manngango due to the high concentration of refugees.
