Zambian Muslim leader says elections will be free and fair

The Supreme Islamic Council of Zambia says the Electoral Commission of Zambia-ECZ- has the capacity to conduct free and fair elections this year.

Council president Suzyo Zimba says ECZ is a credible institution that has in the past conducted transparent polls.

He says elections conducted by ECZ in the past have established Zambia as a beacon of democracy in Africa.

Mr Zimba is also advising political leaders to desist from unnecessary attacks on the ECZ in the run up to the elections.

He has further told ZNBC News in a telephone interview that the country will have peaceful elections, as Zambians are a peace loving people.
