Justice Florence Mumba

The long awaited fresh voter registration exercise begins soon. The exercise has been on the cards for some time now.

Electoral Commission of Zambia(ECZ) Florence Mumba, says the exercise in all the 72 districts of Zambia will be done over a period of 90 days.

In some areas, especially those in remote areas, the exercise will be conducted through mobile services.

Ms. Mumba told a consultative meeting in Lusaka on today that the fresh registration exercise will help to remove deceased voters from the register.

The new voters roll will also enable more people to take part in the 2011 general elections.

The stakeholders’ meeting was attended by Town Clerks and Provincial local government officers.

    Issued driven Zambian voters are finding themselves without an alternative while facing a tough choice in decision 2011 between “democracy and national disintegration” Quote BM

    PACT is a marriage of convenience between two weaker self seeking losers for practical power,financial,unpatriotic and egoistical reasons.Its absolutely not for love of the nation, people or intimacy of practical public benefit. Its unholy marriage to nowhere because they fail on all benchmarks below:

    “Voters align with leadership that is clear, historically risk-adjusted, measured across a broad spectrum of criteria and with a record of holding best practices and building upon them. When these norms are missing in party politics, members become disillusioned and susceptible in the political arena” Quote BM.

    “In Politics, the worst thing is to trap members for long in a valley of uncertainty on the fundamental issue of “leadership and political power framework” in view of the challenges a political marriages of convenience create. Voters align with leadership that is clear, historically risk-adjusted, measured across a broad spectrum of criteria and with a record of holding best practices and building upon them. When these norms are missing in party politics, members become disillusioned and susceptible in the political arena” Quote BM.

    The indelible history of the two perennial losers wasting their time in the PACT is that both are not risk-adjusted, measured across a broad spectrum of criteria and with a record of holding best practices and building upon them.They are too self centered self seeking gluttons keen to sacrifice the country and citizens at all cost.They have share history of renegading all covenants, conventions and treaties if a window of totalitarian leadership is not surrendered to them. Their politics evolve around insults, hatred, anarchy, subversion, terrorizing dissenting voices and xenophobia against economic players. Its a marriage of convenience to nowhere but usual empty mouth diarrhea.

    This is good news. We need to turn out in large numbers and register. I pity my colleagues in the Diaspora who won’t be able to register but instead unwittingly rely on the Post’s biased reporting as their only source of information. All those who won’t register for one reason or another will be hurting inside as come 2011 we will be casting our precious votes and choose leaders on their behalf. The pact is already showing signs of cracking but then what do you expect from Sata if only yesterday he could call HH a “Calculator Boy” and today he wants to use him as a stepping stone to power?

    VETERAN you need to go back to propaganda school, i’m failing to find a connection between voter registration and what you’ve posted.

    Registration of voters is the most critical stage in a democracy as it determines the potential voter turn-out. We should sensitise the masses in the rural areas where most of the swing votes are found while some Zambians in far away countries will continue venting their frustration and anger by blogging and lobbying that we introduce voting at our embassies.

    The so called two man PACT has no interest in voter registration exercise because their time evolves around insults, incorrigible hatred, scheming to fuel tribalism, appearing in the tabloid needlessly,threatening anarchy and praying to realize Genocide against Zambians.

  11. vote

    Justice Mumba ssems to be one of those dilligent and dedicated Zambians committed to the welfare of the country. Lets give her and the ECZ all the support as the elections approach.

  12. vote

    Political parties should all be involved in the civic education. going by the past elections the voter turn out has not been good as people have become disillusioned because their expectations were not met.2010 We need an election with less dispute over voters roll. We are coming home to register and and again 2011 voter for .. not PACT under Sata!

  13. vote

    The ECZ has chosen wrong time. 90 starting now is still rainy season and many people especially in the rural will not be able to register. This will definetly give people a bone to chew. Is there special reason to chose this season? Or is it the late release of funds?

    Some of us have long known that Katolikaism is a counterfeit at war with christianity and human peace.They have been behind all manor of genecides around the would from the 1st world war to Rwanda not forgeting the chaos in Haiti.

    Thank you Bishop Milingo for confirming what we have long known about bakatolikas.

    “Milingo also claimed that he was aware that the church had in the past executed clerics that came up with intentions of marriage whilst serving as priests.

    “I know a lot about the church than those condemning me. The church twice executed those who came up with such intentions and I know where they are buried in Rome,” Milingo said.

    The story is about Voter registration. So you begin to question the sanity of bloggers like Veteran when they start talking about the PACT!

    Reading about what George Kunda had to say about M’Membe made me realise of the desparate nature of the scam of the world wielding power today in our corridors of state. Any government on the face of this earth that is scared of losing the instruments of power to a taploid newspaper is not worthy of any citizen’s support. Besides, one honestly has to wonder what type of lawyer Kunda is because to peddle in such wild and unfounded allegations without a thread of evidence before a radio station clearly shows the extent to which this quack lawyer’s brain has lost reasoning traction. Were he to be hoisted before a court of law, what evidence will he produce to back his allegations? He has done so before parliament where he has immunity, now is the time to teach him a lesson

    Will the government consider making arrangements for those in the Diaspora to participate whereever they are in both the voter registration exercise and the elections in 2011? Last year we saw South Africans casting their votes here in London.

    no 16,leave the Catholics allone.You can blindly follow this shameful man called Milingo.It is utter nonsense for him to say what he is saying.Has the man got any principles.
    He is a shameless man trying to discredit the Catholic Church,but he will and has already failed lamentably.He should just concentrate on his marriage.He was always loose with women even before he got excomunicated.Whats his beef with the Catholic Church.
