  1. Good and do your job well..

  2. The majority is normally composed of Fools. Its nice to know that the kingdom i belong to is a mornach, where the king decide and we obey without question because the king knows everything, understands everything and also made everything that is and that was.

  3. I for the idea that credible NGOs take charge of voter registeration and verification while the ECZ takes charge of other logistics like printing voters card and register. More people will be captured and less tax payers money reduced by about 50%. Vote rigging and doctoring will be heavily curtailed in this way. Lets not put 95% of the electoral process in the hands of MMD govt and other Govts to follow. I believe that donors will be more than ready to help such a noble cause.
