MMD campaign texts, voices sent from abroad-ZICTA

The Zambia Information and Communications Technology Council -ZICTA says unsolicitated voice and text messages by some political parties, are coming from international circuits and not from the three mobile phone operators.

ZICTA Public Relations Manager Ngabo Nankonde says the voice call recording is machine generated and is coming from an international circuit.

Ms Nankonde has also told ZNBC News that text messages are originating from a masked number which is not allocated or being used by any of the three mobile operators.

She says none of the mobile phone providers in the country has given access to their subscriber call records to any of the political parties.

ZICTA has recently received complaints from members of the public that they are receiving unsolicited calls and text messages from some political parties.
