People at St. Mary’s Basic School Polling station in Kawambwa woke up as early as 03:30 hours to cast their votes. By 06:00, there were more than 500 voters in the queue, out of the more than 1 380 registered voters.
However, most voters were seen with their own pens and exchanging pens. This is due to a rumor that the ECZ provided pens are made in such a way that if you mark X against Sata using ECZ pen, RB being on top while Sata at the bottom, when you fold the ballot paper horizontally, the X against Sata will fade directly to RB’s slot.
The rumour suggests that, this is how the election is going to be rigged.
